||PCT/GB2014/000373||MUTHANA, T. Hassan||FALAH, Hassan Ali|
Silhouette (TM) face-lift sutures with reinforcing threads silhouette (TM) face-lift sutures are reinforced using one or more small pieces of absorbable surgical thread (1) which each contain an upper hole (2) and lower hole (3). Each thread is threaded onto the suture, located between two cones of the suture and its lower end is fixed to a knot of the suture whilst the upper end remains free to slide so that when the suture is pulled a cone pushes down the movable end to form a knot which grasps the tissues. The thread may be a pear- shaped piece of tape. Multiple threads may be applied to a single suture. Also disclosed are various needles for inserting the sutures.

||PCT/GB2014/053650||NORDIC SEMICONDUCTOR ASA||STAPLETON, Joel|
A method of calibrating a first oscillator (102) is disclosed. A temperature is measured to obtain a measured temperature value and a determination is made of whether said measured temperature value differs from at least one previously measured temperature value by more than a threshold amount. If said measured temperature does differ from at least one previously measured temperature by more than said threshold amount, a reference oscillator (108, 110) is used to calibrate the first oscillator (102).
WO/2015/097432 CONTROL OF DATA PROVISION WITH A PERSONAL COMPUTING DEVICE||WO||02.07.2015|
||PCT/GB2014/053655||ARM IP LIMITED||PRITCHARD, Andrew|
A personal computing device (200) receives a request for data from a requester (202). The personal computing device determines whether or not that request is to be permitted or not permitted. The personal computing device indicates to the user both a data indication of what data has been requested by the requester and a policy indication of what policy (e.g. retention policy) is associated with that data. The personal computing device may take the form of a smart watch. The data indication may take the form of an icon and the policy indication may take the form of an icon overlaid upon the data icon.
