A heat transfer structure, including: a plurality of layers of graphite material each having a shape selected for providing a thermal path between a hotspot in an electronic device and a heat dissipating structure of the electronic device; and a set of intervening bonding layers for coupling together the layers of graphite material such that the heat transfer structure has a flexible body for avoiding mechanical stress on the hotspot when the heat transfer structure is coupled between the hotspot and the heat dissipating structure.


A multi-layer synthetic graphite conductor. The multi-layer synthetic graphite conductor can include: a set of synthetic graphite sheets; and a perimeter wall for protecting the synthetic graphite sheets.


A thermally conductive composition having an electrically conductive filler with a ceramic coating selected to provide a relatively high dielectric breakdown voltage of the thermally conductive composition while maintaining a relatively high thermal conductivity of the thermally conductive composition.

Material transfer trailers including an elongate chassis, and a longitudinally extending conveyor for transferring material to a desired location, the conveyor being supported by the chassis and including a main portion mounted to the chassis, the main portion having a lower end and an upper end opposite the lower end, an extension portion including a link end moveably mounted to the upper end of the fixed portion and a discharge end opposite the link end, wherein the extension portion is configured to move between an extended position and a stowed position. In some examples, the main portion is fixedly mounted to the chassis. In some examples, the extension portion is pivotally mounted to the main portion. In some examples, the conveyor defines a void to receive a rear-mounted projection of a receiving vehicle.

An asymmetric article-carrying puck is driven by a linear star conveyor through an angular rotation orienting section to orient the pucks and articles therein irrespective of random initial orientation. In one embodiment, an upper puck plate carries the article while a separated lower puck plate defines a rotational orienting circular gear rack with a rotation-stopping bridge, separating ends of the rack and inclined from a base of one end tooth in the rack to a crest of another end tooth in the rack. The lower puck plate can be a combination of two circular plates with the circular gear rack interposed therebetween and within the periphery of the circular plates. Pucks can be accumulated in mutual engaged positions and separated by the linear star into preselected pitch while transported and turned. Integral pucks can be used. The structural details and methods are disclosed.


An adjustable pouch machine comprises a vertical sealer module forms transverse seals between two plies of a pouch web to partially define a plurality of pouches. Rollers selectively tension and relax the web on the vertically oriented wheel, allowing them to drop away from heated lands on emergency and cycle stops. A filler wheel has a plurality of adjustable gripper units mounted directly thereon for transporting independent separate pouches cut from the pouch web. An adjustable knife is selectively provided with changeable knife hub sets to handle a variety of pouch sizes where a filler wheel alternately first fills and seals pouches in a train. Gear linkage accommodates variation in distance between hubs of different sets. Various embodiments, apparatus and methods are described.

Its About Time publishers in collaboration with the University of Colorado at Boulder develop and test a cyberlearning professional-development model that builds on the successful Curriculum Customization Service model implemented in Denver with EarthComm. The cyberlearning system is tested with the Project Based Inquiry Science (PBIS) curriculum - a proven comprehensive middle school science curriculum. In the first two years, six unit-specific materials, curriculum implementation webinars, electronic teacher editions, and teacher planning guide software are developed with teacher input and tested. In the third year, forty middle school teachers nationwide use the cyberlearning system. The learning of their students is compared to students of teachers who had other professional development. The cyberlearning system is evaluated for scalability, affordability, flexibility, and effectiveness for changing teacher practice and student learning.

In the first two years ethnographic studies done by WestEd inform the project about how teachers use the cyberlearning system and which parts are most efficacious. At the same time WestEd collects data of student learning and classroom practice from teachers who have had traditional professional development offered by the publishers. At the same time, data are gathered about student learning in classes whose teachers receive traditional professional development. These teachers form a matched control group for the teachers engaged in cyberlearning professional development in the third year. Their student learning data are compared to the learning of students whose teachers are engaged in the cyberlearning professional development. The research is evaluated by three members of the Advisory Board who have credentials in research methodology, content and broadening participation.

Effective implementation of reform-based STEM curricula depends upon curriculum-based, consistent and well developed professional development. Scaling-up to a broad-based national market is logistically constrained by traditional face-to-face professional development. The project will lead to a tested, useful, affordable, and effective system on-line system to support teacher implementation of reform science curricula that will be used by Its About Time publishers and will be available to others. The results disseminated in the research and practitioner literature can transform the professional development provided by publishers of reform science materials.
