System and methods for purchase reward investment communities
Patent 8,131,590
Purchase rewards account holders accumulate rewards currency. A network-based investment management system allows account holders to purchase shares in investments using reward currency. When all the shares for a particular investment have been purchased, the underlying investment is acquired. Account holders owning shares in an investment may sell shares to other account holders through the system. Account holders are thereby able to invest their rewards dollars in investments typically requiring cash or cash equivalents and to grow their rewards currency.

Stabilized uncoated particles of reversed liquid crystalline phase materials
Patent 8,128,906
Uncoated particles of reversed cubic phase or reversed hexagonal phase material containing an active disposed within are provided. The uncoated particles have an ionic charge that is sufficient to stabilize them in dispersion in a liquid, e.g. a polar solvent. The active that is disposed within the particles may be, for example, a pharmaceutical or nutriceutical compound.

Fibers comprising copolymers containing structures derived from 4,4 diamino diphenyl sulfone and a plurality of acid monomers and methods of making same
Patent 8,133,827
The invention concerns a fiber, obtainable by spinning a copolymer from the polymerization solution, derived from 4,4’diaminodiphenyl sulfone amine monomer and a plurality of acid monomers, wherein the plurality of acid monomers has 55 to 85 mole percent of the monomer containing a para-oriented aromatic group and 15 to 45 mole percent of the monomer containing a meta-oriented aromatic group; and yarns, fabrics and garments comprising this fiber, and methods of making the same. This fiber has use in heat-resistant protective apparel fabrics and garments.

Method and apparatus for heating nonwoven webs
Patent 8,129,297
A process for drying/heat-treating nonwoven webs in which the web is partially dried under tension in a first drying zone and further heat treated under low tension or in a substantially tensionless state a second drying zone. The process significantly reduces the occurrence of stretch-type defects in the nonwoven webs.

Integrated actuator for a propeller system
Patent 8,133,027
A propeller system includes a propeller hub which supports a multiple of propeller blades. A tailshaft extends from a propeller hub portion of the propeller hub along an axis of rotation with a propeller pitch change yoke mounted within the propeller hub for movement along an axis of rotation to change a pitch of the multiple of propeller blades, the propeller pitch change yoke in sliding engagement with the tailshaft.

Distributed capture and aggregation of dynamic application usage information
Patent 8,135,827
A web-based hosted solution through which application developers create, manage and monitor application usage analytics in an online manner. Preferably, an application under test is one of: application software, a script-enabled web application, or a rich Internet application (RIA). During the development process, a usage monitoring API is integrated into the application and the application is deployed. As users interact with the application, a log file is generated, typically in one of two ways. If the application is able to write to a local file system (in the user’s machine), usage information is gathered in a log file local to the deployed application and then dispatched to an upload server for processing in a batch manner. If the application is not able to write to the user machine’s local file system, the usage information is sent to a remote logging server, preferably on a just-in-time basis, and then the log file is generated on the logging server. In either case, preferably the usage information that is tracked comprises “features,” “faults” and “failures” of the application, independent of platform, location, and number of deployed application instances.
