Shows a new approach that can be delivered for drug-resistant infections. Nanotubes and antibiotics are compounded in a non-covalent manner, without chemical bonds, but controlled by the adsorption of antibiotics on the surface of the nanotubes. There is a sufficiently strong molecular attraction between the two molecules. This makes it easier for antibiotics to be released from the nanotubes when they reach the cell membrane. When antibiotics are introduced together with nanotubes in this way, the resistance of the bacteria can be reduced by potentially transferring the nanotubes into the membrane of the bacteria. Nanotubes used in this way help overcome antibiotic resistance.

This article describes a setting tool used to deploy downhole tools in a wellbore. The setting tool uses an on-site non-explosive gas-producing power source to generate high-pressure gas, which drives a mechanical linkage to drive the deployment of the downhole tool. According to some embodiments, the non-explosive gas generating setting tool does not include a hydraulic stage, and may only include a single piston. Compared to setting tools that use explosive/pyrotechnic power sources, setting tools can be installed to provide different stroke lengths and provide usable power over a larger percentage of their stroke length. A method for deploying downhole tools in the wellbore using non-explosive gas production setting tools is also disclosed.

The stream engine used in the digital data processor specifies a fixed read-only data stream. The address generator generates the virtual address of the data element. The address conversion unit converts these virtual addresses into physical addresses by comparing the most significant bits of the next address N with the virtual address bits of each entry in the address conversion table. When matching, the converted address is the physical address bit of the matched entry and the least significant bit of address N. The address conversion unit can generate two converted addresses. If the most significant bit of the address N+1 matches the most significant bit of the address N, the same physical address bits are used for the conversion of the address N+1. The sequential nature of the data stream increases the possibility of consecutive addresses matching the same address translation entry, and this technique can be used.
