WO/2017/004688 SYSTEMS, DEVICES, AND METHODS FOR LINKING ONLINE BEHAVIOR TO OFFLINE PAYMENT TRANSACTIONS||WO||12.01.2017|
||PCT/CA2015/000426||MONERIS SOLUTIONS CORPORATION||CHIB, Sanjeev|
Systems, methods, and devices for linking a consumer's online behavior to an offline payment transaction are disclosed. A first mapping between an identifier of the consumer and an identifier of a payment card of the consumer is generated. A second mapping between the identifier of the consumer and an identifier of an online behavior of the consumer is generated, in association with visiting a webpage. Data reflective of an offline payment transaction is received, the data comprising the identifier of the payment card. A link between the online behavior and the offline transaction is identified by processing the generated first mapping, the generated second mapping, and the received data.

WO/2017/004690 A SNORE DISRUPTING SYSTEM||WO||12.01.2017|
||PCT/CA2015/050630||HARIRI, Aliasghar||HARIRI, Aliasghar|
A snore disrupting method and system is presented, comprising an expansion unit, an air pressure supply or an inflator unit, and an electronic circuit. The invention may further comprise a wired or wireless microphone transmitter. The expansion unit may be placed underneath a pillow, inside a pillowcase. The expansion unit is inflated and deflated by the inflator unit and through expanding and increasing in volume and deflating and reducing in volume changes the position of snorer's head, hence disrupting the snoring. The expansion unit may comprise at least one bladder placed within a sleeve structure, where the expansion and volume increase of the one or plurality of bladders expands the sleeve structure as well and extends and transfers the expansion through the length of the sleeve structure, therefore displacing the pillow along the length of the sleeve structure.

The invention relates to a composition comprising 0.01% to 15% resveratrol and 0.01% to 15% of melatonin. In a preferred embodiment, the composition comprises 5% resveratrol and 0.1 % melatonin. The invention also relates to the use of the said composition to reduce hair loss and/or increase regrowth of hair in a human subject.
WO/2017/004693 SYSTEM, APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR PROVIDING A VIRTUAL NETWORK EDGE AND OVERLAY||WO||12.01.2017|
||PCT/CA2016/000185||TELOIP INC.||SAAVEDRA, Patricio, Humberto|
A network system is provided between at least a first client site and a second client site, the first and the second client site are at a distance from one another. A client site network component is implemented at least at the first client site, the client site network component bonding or aggregating one or more diverse network connections so as to configure a bonded/aggregated connection that has increased throughput. At least one network server component may be configured to connect to the client site network component using the bonded/aggregated connection. A cloud network controller may be configured to manage the data traffic and a virtual edge providing transparent lower-link encryption for the bonded/aggregated connection between the client site network component and the network server component.
WO/2017/004694 RECOVERY OF COPPER FROM ARSENIC-CONTAINING PROCESS FEED||WO||12.01.2017|
||PCT/CA2016/000188||SHERRITT INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION||BUBAN, Kelvin, Richard|
Process to recover copper from a process feed including one or more feed components containing a base metal sulphidic feed, iron, copper and arsenic. Process feed and aqueous quench solution are introduced to a pressure oxidative leaching step with a partial pressure of oxygen above 200 kPa to form free sulphuric acid, to solubilize copper and other metal in the feed as aqueous sulphate compounds and to precipitate arsenic as solid iron arsenic compounds. A treated slurry comprising a liquid phase containing sulphuric acid and copper sulphate, and solids containing the iron arsenic compounds is withdrawn and the liquid phase is separated from the solids. To lessen arsenic re-dissolution and to maintain stability of the solid iron arsenic compounds, one or more of temperature, free acid level and residence time of the treated slurry is controlled. Copper metal is recovered from the separated liquid phase.
WO/2017/004695 METHODS AND DEVICES FOR DEMOUNTABLE HEAD MOUNTED DISPLAYS||WO||12.01.2017|
||PCT/CA2016/000189||JONES, Frank||JONES, Frank|
For users exploiting near-to-eye (NR2I) displays for augmented reality and / or correction of low vision then the user is typically going to wear the immersive or non-immersive NR2I displays for specific tasks, for specific visual environments, etc. and hence there is an issue of repeatedly attaching and removing the NR2I display. Further, in the majority of applications irrespective of whether for short-term, long-term, low vision, augmented reality, etc. there is a conflicting tradeoff between user comfort, ease of attachment, minimizing intrusiveness and aesthetics. Accordingly, a means of pivotably attaching and supporting a NR2I display is provided wherein the pivotable mounts may be permanently attached, attached, or demountably attached to a frame which may include for some user's prescription lenses.
