||PCT/IB2014/067442||PISMO LABS TECHNOLOGY LIMITED||SUNG, Patrick Ho Wai|
The present invention discloses methods and systems for transmitting data packets through a plurality of connections and through a gateway at a network node. The network node receives network performance observation report (NPOR) from the gateway. Based on the NPOR, the network node determines at least one of the plurality of wide area network (WAN) interfaces of the gateway for transmitting data packets. The network node then creates and transmits an in¬ struction to the gateway. When the network node transmits the data packets to the gateway, the network node also creates and transmits an instruction to the gateway to determine the WAN interface(s) of the gateway for transmitting the packets.

WO/2016/101172 HYBRID ON-DEMAND GRAPHICS TRANSLATION TABLE SHADOWING||WO||30.06.2016|
||PCT/CN2014/094804||INTEL CORPORATION||DONG, Yao Zu|
In several embodiments, a graphics processor couples to a virtual machine monitor (VMM) to present a virtual graphics processor to one or more virtual machines. A mediator for the virtual graphics processor synchronously shadows modifications to a guest graphics translation table (GTT) of a virtual machine to a shadow GTT of the VMM using trap and emulate virtualization. If the mediator detects a frequency of modifications to the guest GTT that exceeds a threshold the mediator may then asynchronously shadow at least a portion of the guest GTT to the shadow GTT and rebuild the shadow GTT prior to submitting commands for the virtual graphics processor to the graphics processor.
WO/2016/102966 A CAP FOR A CONTAINER FOR A POST-FOAMING GEL CLEANSING COMPOSITION||WO||30.06.2016|
||PCT/GB2015/054138||PZ CUSSONS (INTERNATIONAL) LTD||PAUL, Stephen John|
A container comprises a body of plastics material with a "bag-on-valve" arrangement. The bag depends from a valve and contains a post-foaming gel cleansing composition. A propellant is provided in the container outside the bag, so as to exert a pressure on the post-foaming gel cleansing composition in the bag, such that when the valve stem is depressed to open the valve the post-foaming gel cleansing composition is expelled through the valve stem. The container comprises a cap and the cap is provided with a conduit therethrough to guide the composition from the valve stem to an exit orifice. The conduit comprises an expansion chamber for receiving the composition from the valve stem, a neck having a smaller diameter than the expansion chamber for receiving the composition from the expansion chamber, and a nozzle provided with an exit orifice and having a diameter larger than the neck.
WO/2016/103008 METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR TRANSMITTING DATA THROUGH AN AGGREGATED CONNECTION||WO||30.06.2016|
||PCT/IB2014/067315||PISMO LABS TECHNOLOGY LIMITED||SUNG, Patrick Ho Wai|
The present invention discloses methods and systems for transmitting data packets from a first communications router to a second communications router through an aggregated connection comprising a plurality of tunnels. The first communications router receives a first data packet belonging to a data session from a first host. The first communications router then transmits the first data packet to the second communications router and stores the first data packet in a local storage medium. The first communications router determines whether an error correction mode is activated. If an error correction mode is activated, the first communications router retransmits the first data packet and also transmits an error correction packet corresponding to the first data packet.

WO/2016/095272 DUAL ENGAGING POSITION-TYPE CABLE SEVERING MECHANISM AND USE METHOD THEREFOR||WO||23.06.2016|
||PCT/CN2014/095522||SOUTH CHINA SEA INSTITUTE OF OCEANOLOGY, CHINESE ACADEMY OF SCIENCES||SUN, Zhaohua|
A dual engaging position-type cable severing mechanism consisting primarily of a blade casing (1), a cable press plate (2), and a movable hook (3). Provided within the blade casing are a blade (12), a compression spring (13) below the blade, and an ejection control unit for controlling the compression spring. In the cable severing mechanism, when the movable hook is taut, the compression spring is controlled by the ejection control unit in the blade casing to remain in a compressed state, and when the movable hook is slack, the compression spring is released by the ejection control unit in the blade casing to eject the blade to the cable press plate to sever a cable (4). A method for using the cable severing mechanism in a seafloor observatory. The cable severing mechanism is capable of effectively severing a cable in equipment when a relevant instruction is received, thus implementing equipment separation. The cable severing mechanism allows simple and effective severance of a cable.
WO/2016/099536 METHODS FOR DETERMINING RHEOLOGICAL QUANTITIES OF A DRILLING FLUID USING APPARENT VISCOSITY||WO||23.06.2016|
||PCT/US2014/071381||HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES, INC.||JAMISON, Dale E.|
Rheological quantities, such as shear stress, can sometimes be difficult to determine under extreme temperature and pressure conditions. In contrast, the relative rheology of a fluid can often be readily determined over a range of temperature and pressure conditions. The relative rheology can then be used to scale a rheological quantity of the fluid to a given temperature and pressure condition. Methods for scaling a rheological quantity can comprise: measuring an apparent viscosity of a drilling fluid at first, second and third reference temperature and pressure conditions; determining a rate of change in apparent viscosity with respect to temperature at a substantially equal pressure; determining a rate of change in apparent viscosity with respect to pressure at a substantially equal temperature; and scaling a rheological quantity from an initial set of temperature and pressure conditions to a final set of temperature and pressure conditions using the rates of change.

||PCT/CN2014/095516||SOUTH CHINA SEA INSTITUTE OF OCEANOLOGY, CHINESE ACADEMY OF SCIENCES||SUN, Zhaohua|
An impact pin-type cable severing mechanism consisting of a blade casing, a cable press plate, an ejection control casing, and a movable hook. Provided within the blade casing are a blade and a powerful compression spring below the blade. The ejection control casing is connected with the movable hook. A trigger piece and a blade latch are provided within the ejection control casing. In the impact pin-type cable severing mechanism, when the hook is taut, the blade latch within the ejection control casing is utilized to lock the blade, thus allowing the compression spring to remain in a compressed state, and when the hook is slack, the trigger piece is impacted by a rebound force to drive the blade latch into separating from the blade, and the compression spring is released to eject the blade to the cable press plate to sever a cable. Also disclosed is a use method for employing the cable severing mechanism in a seafloor observatory. The impact pin-type cable severing mechanism of the present invention is capable of effectively severing a cable in equipment when a relevant instruction is received, thus implementing equipment separation.
