A method for forecasting a residual value of a first vehicle having existent and nonexistent model years is disclosed. Part of the method includes creating a proxy vehicle form a selected one of a plurality of second vehicles for each nonexistent model year within a predetermined time frame with the proxy vehicle having a proxy vehicle identifier, populating an initial database with the proxy vehicle identifier for each nonexistent model year to create a comprehensive database, and converting the proxy vehicle identifier for each first existent model year into a monetary value, and utilizing a processor to calculate the residual value of the first vehicle utilizing the monetary value of the proxy vehicle.

An alternative trading system or platform for allowing a liquidity remover to place an order for the purchase or sale of a security or other commodity to be fulfilled by one or more liquidity providers. The platform may contain a rating module to allow members to create ratings of one another based on their own criteria; an indexor which utilizes the ratings to generate a list of liquidity providers offering a security of interest to a liquidity remover; a provider selector for determining which provider or providers to join in a transaction with the remover; and a price calculator for determining an execution price for the current transaction between a remover and a provider based on ratings and payment/price improvement configurations.

A mixing apparatus includes a mixing device with a rotatable shaft and at least one blade. The mixing apparatus also includes a shaft guide having a central portion and a head portion attached to the central portion. The central portion and the head portion together define an aperture extending from the proximal end to the distal end such that the proximal end and the distal end are in fluid communication through the aperture. The shaft guide provides all axial and radial bearing support for the mixing device such that no other radial or axial support is used when the mixing device operates within an associated container. In other examples, a shaft bushing is located around a portion of the mixing device.

An apparatus is disclosed which includes a processor and non-transient memory operatively connected to the processor. The memory includes instructions which, when executed by the processor, cause the processor to: receive, from a server hosting a managed services gateway, an authorized funding amount which is based on user account data associated with the user account; transmit a funds transfer request to the server, where the funds transfer request includes a funding amount less than or equal to the authorized funding amount; transmit a funds-transfer confirmation message to the server which causes the managed services gateway to initiate an internal funds transfer on a bank server associated with the user account. The internal funds transfer comprises a real-time transfer of funds from a managed services account owned by a managed services provider to a consumer account associated with the user maintained with the same bank.


A transgenic fly whose genome is modified to express enhanced levels of glutamate-cysteine ligase (GCL) gene is provided. The fly displays phenotypes associated with Alzheimers disease (AD). Further, a method for diagnosing AD is provided, which includes assessing enzymatic activities in mitochondrial enzymes. Glutathione pathway are investigated by creating Alzheimers model Drosophila with over-expression of the GCLc gene, inducing redox stress through sleep deprivation, and analyzing mitochondrial electron transport chain (ETC) using colorimetric enzymatic assays. For prevention of AD, it is proposed that the epigenetic approaches be used to increase glutathione levels in vivo before the onset of AD. For treatment of AD, it is proposed that the glutathione levels be increased by GCLc modulation.


A method for displaying a matrix of correlations or other statistical measures of co-movement associated with a plurality of financial instruments, portfolios, indices, or asset classes is disclosed. The method includes: converting the matrix of correlations or other co-movement measures into a probability transition matrix; defining a corresponding abstract distance measurement between any two of the plurality of financial instruments, portfolios, indices, or asset classes based on the probability transition matrix; assigning coordinates in a Euclidean space to each of the plurality of financial instruments, portfolios, indices, or asset classes, wherein a Euclidean distance between any two financial instruments, portfolios, indices, or asset classes in the Euclidean space corresponds to the corresponding abstract distance measurement; and displaying on a display device the plurality of financial instruments, portfolios, indices, or asset classes based on more significant dimensions of the Euclidean space.

Apparatus and methods for a mixing device are presented. The mixing device comprises a shaft and a plurality of blades attached to the shaft. The blades include a variable pitch angle configured to create axial fluid flow and radial fluid flow within a container. The apparatus includes a hub and a cage located at ends of the apparatus. The cage includes an open end configured to mate with a structure attached to the container. In further examples of the apparatus, the upper blade is configured to create axial flow in a substantially downward direction. The lower blade is configured to create axial flow in a substantially upward direction. The lower blade can create an axial flow that encounters the upper blade. A method includes locating a mixing apparatus within the container, inserting fluid within the container, rotating the mixing apparatus, and mixing the fluid.
