Goolbee's catch-phrase: "DNA can and should realize it's full potential naturally!" and "Just say NO to GMO!" became quite controversial.

Henry Alfred Goolbee’s catch-phrase: “DNA can and should realize it’s full potential naturally!” and “Just say NO to GMO!” became quite controversial.

Goolsbee’s Motive and Intent

Goolsbee’s primary interests rest in preserving both his own and others right of use, by proving that his ideas were implemented under a “first-in-use” protocol as a “public service” initiative.

The intent therefore:

“To be certain that large conglomerates couldn’t block my not-for-profit entities from exploiting, creatively, the technologies.”

This ushers-in an interesting and innovative approach to utilizing the Patent awards protocols for a not-for-profit entity that can’t afford to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars to register a patent; whereby, a company or individual that wishes, can simply, protect their philanthropic right to utilize a particular technology for the general good and in the arena of public benefit (as opposed to attempting to temporarily monopolize a technology).


“By applying for a provisional patent, whether a patent is granted or not, Goolsbee protected his rights to manufacture, sell and distribute the goods, regardless of any future claims by others with competing commercial interests, who may have attempted, at a later date, to block his not-for-profit and philanthropic activities.”


Henry Alfred Goolbee’s catch-phrase became quite controversial.:

“DNA can and should realize it’s full potential naturally!”

“Just say NO to GMO!”

DESCRIPTION  translated from German

The invention relates to the field of jewelery chains, such as necklace th, bracelets, earrings and the like, which elements the Kettenele, such as beads, stones and the like, carry on a string or a metal wire or a similarly acting other carrier arranged in order and dealing in more with an arrival and to sammenschlußstück as a connecting element for a Ansetzten before given a chain or a portion of a chain to a given other chain.

In this regard, for example, is known, bracelets or earrings small chains on a necklace to form an optionally then moor multi-limbed necklace, wherein the compound of the two chains together is the way that the smaller chain with one end or both ends of the one larger necklace hangs up, including the necklace to defi ned location or at multiple locations has a defined Ket tenelement carrying an eyelet for hanging the shorter Ket te.

With reference to the opening and closing of a chain are known at whose buckles, which is an on-the chain end segment can be a stick in the form of a V-shaped spring in a moored at the other end of the chain closure part, with the resulting connector by squeezing the V-shaped spring member and its removal from the pull closure part again can be solved.

As certain disadvantage of the prior art, jewelry chains with means to join at least one eye with each other, is perceived among other things, that the eyes tend the one hand, to catch in clothing, and on the other hand the jewelry chain, be especially if it is made of fine materials to give a less elegant appearance.

The object of the invention is to provide for jewelry necklaces strung chain elements such connection element for the Ansetzten of chains to chains that enable it to determine the final part of the other chain is not outside but receives in its interior, which is the terminal at least one still knows direct chain permits and which as a part of the main shutter to close the chain into an endless belt or to open the chain for removal from the they can serve bearing Kör perteil beyond.

This task, in accordance want to create ge a auffädelbares, elegant, more funk tional element as a connecting element of a jewelery chain is solved using the Steckverschlußtech technology according to the features of claim lines 1 Ausgestal and developments of the invention are found in the from dependent claims 2 to 4 and indicated in claim 5.

The invention is described in more detail once based on purely exemplary figures.

It shows:

FIG. 1 shows in longitudinal section a auffädelbares connecting element according to the invention with two connecting channels for a connector;

. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a member according to Fig 1 with Verbindungsele principles exemplary representation of a V-shaped spring member for making the plug connection;

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of a threadable connection element according to the invention with three channels on circuit for a connector;

Fig. 4 is a multi-unit chain composed of several means of connecting elements of FIGS. 1 and 2;

FIG. 5 a branching combination of several mutually associated inventive fasteners.

The illustrated in Fig. 1 part 1 ‘is a half piece of the connection elements shown in FIGS. 2, 3 and 5 1, consisting of two such half-pieces 1′ are mated, example, by gluing or soldering.

The connection member 1 includes a central threading channel 2 for the chain or cord 3 a chain wire or the like and has two insertion channels 4 for clamping and locking arrangement of a resilient V-shaped plug part 5 with onds to supply section 6.The insertion channels 4 lie in the same plane as the threading channel 2 and preferably form an acute angle between itself and the threading channel 2 from.

The principle of a be brought about by the introduction of a plug part 5 in a 4 plug insertion channel closure is known, so that one can dispense with the presentation and explanation of technical details for the temporary locking of a plug part 5 in the insertion channel 4.

Compared to a connecting element 1 comprising two Einsteckkanälen 4, the connecting element shown in Fig. 3 contains 7three A plug-channels 4, which are, for reasons of plug geometry in a plane and between them, depending should form an angle of 60 °, such by means of the arrows 4 ‘, giving the insertion for the classification of the plug parts 5 in the insertion channels at 4, is indicated. The threading channel 2 for the chain cord 3 passes through the connecting element 6 and perpendicular to the central of the three Einsteckkanale 4 level.

With regard to the arrangement of numbers and on the location of Einsteckkanä len 4 in a connecting element according to the invention is basically no limit, nor for the location of the threading channel 2 relative to the position of the insertion channels. 4 Including fasteners having the type of two Einsteckkanälen 4 connecting element 1, for example particularly advantageous when the left and / or right of the threading channel 2 contain an additional plug-in channel 4 – and so have three or four insertion channels 4 in the same plane.

Associated with the invention advantages are described for the sake of simplicity, only to connecting elements 1, ie to connecting elements in FIGS. 1, 2, 4 and 5 in more detail illu tered type (with two inclined towards the threading channel 2located Einsteckkanälen 4) shown.

Using threaded-fasteners 1, for example, a set of a necklace with beads A and 8 from well-crafted bracelet chains B and C, the B chain kür zer than the chain C produced. In the illustrated chain C is an element D, which may be part of an ear tag, for example, connected by means of a twin plug is also partly consisting of two head to head, so to speak together law plated plug 5 parts; Accordingly, such a twin plug part two operating parts 6.

The chains A, B and C can be worn separately and example, by means of a connecting element 1, which assumes the function ei nes main closure Ib, close to the endless belt, where to each of the two chain ends a plug part 5. To take a connecting element 1 b for the main closure but also, for example, rod-shaped clutch could piece (not shown) having opposite Einsteckka ducts 4 are used.

The chains A, B and C can now – as shown in FIG. 4 – are combined into egg ner “transformation chain,” either by only one of the chains B and C, or both chains B and C (Fig. 4) with their the plug part 5 bearing ends plugging into the insertion channels 4 of existing fasteners 1 of the chain A; to such connecting elements 1 which is threaded only been or are lined up, and thus only a jewelery element represent are those connecting elements 1, to which a piece of chain is attached by means of a plug-in part 5 are designated by 1 a.

Such a connecting element 1 acts as a junction box, to which either one end of a chain or a the end of each of two Ket both ends of a chain can be connected or ten or branch off from it.

Instead, as shown in Fig. 4, according to the aneinandergekoppel are the ten chains A, B, C with respect to their adjacent chain elements 1 head against the head or foot to foot with each other, shows

Fig. 5 in the vertical section of a chain with foot against head arranged connecting elements 1, of which one each of the leaves as junction box for the derivation of chains in the same direction use. In this way, even hangers with freely suspended ends can be produced, including your own shorter Khan siege rush, so, for example, an element D, which are not intended to be located close to the endless belt can be provided at a jewelry chain collection.

As can be seen, make the connection elements according to the inven tion functional parts is that structures a high number of chains according to the individual taste or need leave to assemble, provided that the corresponding chains or portions of chains – from which to sammenstecken, longer chain structure leave – are available to the user.

With chains made especially noble materials using beads 8 and / or precious stones, the connecting elements should be made of precious metal and have harmonious proportions for the particularly elegant He apparition form the jeweler goods, including, for example, for joining and chain elements 1 a trapezoidal shape with a wider head side beveled edges 9 points from which run the insertion channels 4, aesthetically befriedi conditions should. 1, the following measures are in this regard, a chain with pearls for an elegant and harmonious shape of a connecting element proposed: longitudinal extent of about 12 mm, head width (overall) about 9 mm, base width of about 4 mm, thickness about 4.5 mm.

Moreover, the slopes are 9 also help to keep disposed adjacent chain elements 1 as the head part of the connecting element, that they do not restrict each other.
