US 20160192598A1 – Plants use a photosensitive pigment to detect light. One of these, phytochrome, detects light in the red and far red spectrum and affects plant signals to “wake” or “sleep.” Different important biological processes occur in plants during these times. In addition to the time of day, many plants track the length of days with phytochrome and related systems; this allows, for example, a plant to know when the days are getting shorter in the fall, signaling the best time to convert from producing vegetative tissues to producing flowering tissues. The apparatus, system, and method described in this patent uses a combination of different types of lighting devices, connected to a system that when performed per a specific method, replicates the effects of sunrise and sunset by providing certain wavelengths of light at certain times.

US 20160227757A1 – Generic flies are a world-wide annoyance that are generally attracted to human food among other sources of heat, moisture and areas prone to quick development of bacteria. Flies land on and come into contact with a wide range of decaying organic substances either in search of food or a place to lay their eggs and the fly can easily transfer bacteria or disease on those substances to the next landing place. Thus, the spread of bacteria or disease from flies coming into contact with human food or human surroundings is a major health concern. This patent is for a fly repellent device comprised of: A water-filled transparent container of approximately spherical shape. A combination of integrated multi-faceted beads and water inside the spherical device frighten and confuse flies by the multiple thousands of reflective images when the Fly Ball is introduced to light.
US20160044400A1 – When it comes to carrying around charger cords, ear buds, and any other wired devices, it is a pain to figure out how to store the wires and cords without having a bird’s nest of a mess the next time a person pulls them out. This patent relates to a cost-effective, protective containment of devices, such as music ear buds. The device is made up a customizable center tag, and two cylindrical bases. The bases are connected by a reel element. A person’s wired device may be wrapped around the reel element to neatly store and protect your wired device when not in use. One base has a flap connected to one of the bases, and may be flipped to enclose any and all wires within the reel.

US20140075823A1 – This patent relates generally to fishing sinkers and weights, and more specifically to a fishing weight having optimized buoyancy characteristics such that the weight tends to rest on top of foreign submerged material, e.g. water-milfoil, rather than sinking into and becoming entangled in the material. The fishing weight comprises a cylindrically shaped body made of a synthetic cork material, which on its own tends to float in water. The fishing weight further comprises a weight element inserted into the body to achieve optimal buoyancy characteristics of the apparatus as a whole. Each of two opposing ends of the cylindrically shaped body have attached thereto means for connecting the fishing weight to at least one of fishing line and/or a leader line having a hook at the end thereof.
US 009171147B2 – Password security is a matter of great importance for most individuals, companies, organizations, government agencies, and any groups or entities that deal with sensitive data (hereafter referred to as “password users” or “users”). Passwords that are weak are easily cracked using any of several known techniques. When passwords are cracked sensitive information is often compromised. Thus, users typically seek to increase password strength.. This process and system allows for a password owner to set one password, and use it for life. Using a combination of colors, sizes, fonts, letter position, and etcetera, a password owner is given the ability to customize and encrypt the letter that make up his/her password in nearly 50 different ways.
