Stemming reduces inflected words to their stem or root form.
For example the words fishing, fished,fish, and fisher are reduced to the root word,fish,
so a search for fisher returns all the different variations
Returns only one member of a family of patents

Appl.No 10854574 Applicant MCQUILKIN GARY L Inventor McQuilkin Gary L.

An approach to noninvasively, remotely and accurately detect core body temperature in a warm-blooded subject, human or animal, via thermal imaging. Preferred features such as the use of in-frame temperature references, specific anatomical target regions and a physiological heat transfer model help the present invention to overcome pitfalls inherent with existing thermal imaging techniques applied to physiological screening applications. This invention provides the ability to noninvasively, remotely and rapidly screen for diseases or conditions that are characterized by changes in core body temperature. One human application of this invention is the remote screening for severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), since fever is a common, early symptom. Other diseases and conditions that affect the core body temperature of humans or animals may also be noninvasively and remotely detected with this invention.

A method of exciting nuclear spins in a sample, wherein a plurality of transmit coils are driven in parallel to emit respective radio-frequency excitation pulses, the method comprising computing the phases and/or amplitudes of said excitation pulses by solving an optimization problem for minimizing the difference between the excitation distribution within said sample and a target excitation distribution, and being characterized in that: said optimization problem includes a cost function depending on the power emitted by said transmit coils through respective coil-dependent weighting coefficients; and in that the phases and/or amplitudes of the excitation pulses are computed iteratively, each iteration step comprising: solving said optimization problem based on present values of the weighting coefficient, and subsequently updating the value of at least one of said coefficients so as to control in a predetermined way the local specific absorption rate—SAR—distribution within the sample. The method of the invention allows, in particular, reducing the local SAR maximum value within the sample and/or ensuring that the local SAR takes its maximum value within a predetermined region of the sample.

A multiple measurement memory-type electronic thermometer includes an ear temperature measuring unit, a microprocessor, a keypad unit, a display unit, and a memory unit. The ear temperature measuring unit, the display unit, and the memory unit are controlled by the microprocessor. When the activation key of the keypad unit is pressed by the user, being controlled by the microprocessor, the ear temperature unit is activated to perform measurement. The measuring result of the ear temperature unit is sent back to the microprocessor, displayed by the display unit, and saved in the memory unit. The memory unit is partitioned into a plurality of independent memory sectors. Each sector includes a queue data structure, such that the ear temperature measured from each person and the measuring time can be stored in the corresponding memory sector. Therefore, measurement of multiple people can be performed, memorized and retrieved.
