WO/2016/145508 METHOD FOR GENERATING EMAIL TIMELINES||WO||22.09.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/050193||HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN IN RIGHT OF CANADA, AS REPRESENTED BY THE MINISTER OF THE DEPARTMENT OF NATIONAL DEFENCE||CARBONE, Richard R.|
Systems and methods for the generation of timelines for emails found on a computer. The files relating to emails on a computer are first located on the machine. These files are then analyzed and each email is extracted into a separate file. Each separate email file is further analyzed and a unique hash value for that separate email is generated. Data relating to that separate email is then retrieved and saved in a timeline file along with the unique hash value. Such data may include the email recipient, the email sender, a routing return path for the email, the file name for the separate email file, the file size for the separate email file, and the directory or path for that separate email file.
WO/2016/145505 METHOD, SYSTEM AND APPARATUS FOR CONTROLLING PREPAID DELIVERY OF UTILITIES||WO||22.09.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/000162||REDKNEE INC.||NEST, Frank|
A system for controlling prepaid delivery of utilities includes a utility meter with a cutoff device for enabling or disabling delivery of a utility; and a server connected to the utility meter via a network. The utility meter receives a usage limit from the server, measures usage of the utility by the load, and when the usage limit is exceeded, activates the cutoff device. The utility meter transmits the measured usage to the server at configurable intervals. The server maintains an account balance associated with the load, receives the measured usage from the utility meter, and decrements the account balance based on the measured usage. When the account balance is exhausted, the server sends a command to activate the cutoff device to the utility meter. Otherwise, the server generates a further usage limit based on the account balance, and sends the further usage limit to the utility meter.

WO/2016/145520 IMPROVED WIND TURBINE SUITABLE FOR MOUNTING WITHOUT A WIND TURBINE TOWER||WO||22.09.2016|
||PCT/CA2016/050278||O'HAGAN, Peter K.||O'HAGAN, Peter K.|
This invention discloses an improved wind turbine suitable for mounting without a wind turbine tower. The wind turbine is based on a rotor with appropriately selected blades. A nozzle and diffuser in the wind flow increase the amount of wind energy available to the rotor. The rotor is interruptibly connected with one or more generators which allows generation at a wide range of wind speeds. The rotor is also interruptibly connected with a flywheel which allows for storage or use of rotational energy as needed by the availability of wind energy. One or more wind turbines can be grouped together in a common housing. The lack of a wind turbine tower and the general compact design allows the wind turbine to be used in close proximity to or on buildings.

||PCT/CA2016/050281||LI, Xinde||LI, Xinde|
Various embodiments are described herein for a system and method for adaptively detecting a desired signal S(n) in a noisy environment. A main signal is obtained that has the desired signal and at least one of noise and interference from a collective noise source, an auxiliary signal is obtained comprising a version of the noise and/or a version of the interference from the collective noise source; and at a processing unit at least one signal feature is defined, noise and interference components corresponding to the noise and/or interference and the version of the noise and/or version of the interference are defined, and strengths thereof are estimated. The desired signal is estimated using the at least one signal feature and corresponding strengths, and the noise and/or interference components are estimated using the components and corresponding strengths.

WO/2016/145524 DEVICE AND METHOD TO IMAGE FLOW IN OIL AND GAS WELLS USING PHASED ARRAY DOPPLER ULTRASOUND||WO||22.09.2016|
||PCT/CA2016/050283||DARKVISION TECHNOLOGIES INC.||MALIK, Osman S.|
A device and method for imaging, measuring and identifying multiphase fluid flow in wellbores using phased array Doppler ultrasound. The device includes a radially- configured or ring-shaped ultrasound transducer that when deployed in a well in Doppler mode can measure the velocity of radially flowing fluids in the wellbore and generate a 3D image of radial flow in the wellbore, including flowback into the wellbore after fracturing operations, or flow leaving the wellbore during water injection operations. The ring-shaped ultrasound transducer can also simultaneously operate in a B-mode to generate a B-mode image of the wellbore liner upon which the Doppler image can be overlaid. The device may also include a forward facing ultrasound transducer either instead of or in place of the ring-shaped transducer for obtaining information and images on axial flow in the wellbore in Doppler mode, and the location of phase boundaries and phase locations in B-mode.
