A method, computer program product, and system is provided for community based mobile device profiling. In an implementation, a method may include receiving, via a first mobile device, a wireless signal associated with a second mobile device. The method may also include determining an identity of a user associated with the second mobile device. The method may further include establishing at least one setting of the first mobile device based upon, at least in part, a mobile device profile associated with the first mobile device and the identity of the user associated with the second mobile device.
WO/2015/024115 PROCESS FOR PURIFYING SEMICONDUCTING SINGLE-WALLED CARBON NANOTUBES||WO||26.02.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/050788||NATIONAL RESEARCH COUNCIL OF CANADA||DING, Jianfu|
A two-step sc-SWCNT enrichment process involves a first step based on selective dispersion and extraction of semiconducting SWCNT using conjugated polymer followed by a second step based on an adsorptive process in which the product of the first step is exposed to an inorganic absorptive medium to selectively bind predominantly metallic SWCNTs such that what remains dispersed in solution is further enriched in semiconducting SWCNTs. The process is easily scalable for large-diameter semi- conducting single-walled carbon nanotube (sc-SWCNT) enrichment with average diameters in a range, for example, of about 0.6 to 2.2 nm. The first step produces an enriched sc-SWCNT dispersion with a moderated sc-purity (98%) at a high yield, or a high purity (99% and up) at a low yield. The second step can not only enhance the purity of the polymer enriched sc-SWCNTs with a moderate purity, but also further promote the highly purified sample to an ultra-pure level. Therefore, this two-step hybrid process provides sc-SWCNT materials with a super high purity, as well as both a high sc-purity (for example greater than 99%) and a high yield (up to about 20% or higher).

WO/2015/024108 PILE, PILE HEAD AND CONNECTOR THEREFOR||WO||26.02.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/000645||GOLIATHTECH INC.||REUSING, Julian L.|
A pile head for a screw pile having a top end and a longitudinal axis is provided. The pile head comprises a mounting portion engaging the pile and an extendable portion movably mounted to the mounting portion. The extendable portion is movable relative to the mounting portion, along the longitudinal axis. A first fastening means is used to removably fasten the mounting portion of the pile head to the top end of the pile and preventing unwanted movement of the pile head relative to the pile, along the longitudinal axis. A screw pile, a removable helical member and a body extension for a screw pile are also provided.

A process for producing polymer-supported metal nanoparticles involves confinement of metal nanoparticles in polymeric nanotubes or nanosheets in an aqueous environment using hydrophobic reactants. Metal nanoparticles supported in the polymeric nanotubes or nanosheets are substantially monodisperse and have an average particle size of 4 nm or less. The polymer-supported metal nanoparticles are useful in fuel cells, sensors, bioanalysis, biological labeling or semi-conductors, especially as catalysts.
