Certain Earpiece Devices Having Positioning and Retaining Structure and Components Thereof; Institution of Investigation Pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1337
Notice is hereby given that a complaint was filed with the U.S. International Trade Commission on February 26, 2014, under section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, on behalf of Bose Corporation of Framingham, Massachusetts. The complaint alleges violations of section 337 based upon the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain earpiece devices having positioning and retaining structure and components thereof by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent No. 8,311,253 (``the `253 patent''). The complaint further alleges that an industry in the United States exists as required by subsection (a)(2) of section 337.

Public Availability of Department of Energy FY 2013 Service Contract Inventory
In accordance with Section 743 of Division C of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117), the Department of Energy (DOE) is publishing this notice to advise the public on the availability of the FY 2013 Service Contract inventory. This inventory provides information on service contract actions over $25,000 that DOE completed in FY 2013. The information is organized by function to show how contracted resources are distributed throughout the agency. The inventory has been developed in accordance with guidance issued on November 5, 2010, by the Office of Management and Budget's Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP). OFPP's guidance is available at http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/ procurement/memo/service-contract-inventories-guidance- 11052010.pdf. On December 19, 2011, OFPP issued additional guidance available at http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/ procurement/memo/service-contract-inventory-guidance.pdf. Except for minor changes to reporting deadlines, the guidance for preparing and analyzing FY 2013 inventories is essentially unchanged from OFPP's November 5, 2010, guidance for preparing the FY 2010 inventory. DOE has posted its inventory and a summary of the inventory at: http://energy.gov/management/downloads/service-contract-inven tory.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2010-23-12 for certain Airbus Model A330 and Model A340 series airplanes. AD 2010-23- 12 required inspecting to determine the part number for Thales Avionics Angle of Attack (AoA) probes, and replacing any affected probe with a serviceable probe. This new AD adds airplanes to the applicability and, for certain airplanes, requires that those affected probes be replaced. This AD was prompted by reports that the AoA sensors on certain airplanes were modified and re-identified without performing the inspection to determine the part number; therefore, the affected probes were not replaced with serviceable probes. We are issuing this AD to prevent erroneous AoA information and consequent delayed activation or non-activation of the AoA protection systems, which, in combination with flight at a high angle of attack, could result in reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Régional Airplanes
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2009-18-18 for certain ATRGIE Avions de Transport R[eacute]gional Model ATR42 and ATR72 airplanes. AD 2009-18-18 required repetitive inspections for damage and absence of repair of the cockpit forward side windows, and replacement if necessary. This new AD requires repetitive detailed inspections of the cockpit forward side window for damage and discrepancies; and replacement if necessary. Replacing both cockpit forward side windows with approved windows terminates the repetitive detailed inspections. This new AD also expands the applicability of AD 2009-18-18. The actions required by AD 2009-18-18 are not required by this AD. This AD was prompted by reports of a cockpit forward right- hand side blow out during flight. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct air/water leakage of the cockpit forward side window, which could lead to rapid cabin decompression, resulting in loss of control of the airplane.
Small Business Investment Companies-Early Stage SBICs
On February 4, 2014, the U.S. Small Business Administration (``SBA'') published a Call for Early Stage Fund Managers (the ``Call'') in the Federal Register to submit the preliminary materials discussed in Section II of the Call for consideration to be licensed as Early Stage Small Business Investment Companies (``SBICs''). As set forth in the DATES section below, this notice modifies the current deadlines for the submission of such materials, as well as the dates for various steps in the Early Stage SBIC licensing process.
Membership in the National Parks Overflights Advisory Group Aviation Rulemaking Committee
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Park Service (NPS) are inviting interested persons to apply to fill one existing opening and one upcoming opening on the National Parks Overflights Advisory Group (NPOAG) Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC) to represent environmental concerns. Selected members will each serve 3-year terms.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A330-200, -300 and -200 Freighter series airplanes; and Model A340-200, -300, -500, and -600 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report that an airplane equipped with Angle of Attack (AOA) sensors installed with conic plates recently experienced blockage of all sensors during climb, leading to autopilot disconnection and activation of the alpha protection (Alpha Prot) when Mach number was increased. This AD requires, for certain airplanes, revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to advise the flightcrew of emergency procedures for addressing AOA sensor blockage. This AD also requires replacing the AOA sensor conic plates with AOA sensor flat plates, which is a terminating action for the AFM revision. We are issuing this AD to prevent reduced control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG Turbofan Engines
We are superseding airworthiness directive (AD) 2007-03-02 for all Rolls-Royce Deutschland (RRD) Tay 620-15, Tay 650-15, and Tay 651- 54 turbofan engines. AD 2007-03-02 required an ultrasonic inspection (UI) of low-pressure (LP) compressor fan blades for cracks on certain serial number (S/N) Tay 650-15 engines. AD 2007-03-02 also required, for all Tay 611-8, 620-15, Tay 650-15, and Tay 651-54 engines, initial and repetitive UIs of LP compressor fan blades. AD 2007-03-02 also required, for Tay 650-15 and Tay 651-54 engines, UIs of LP compressor fan blades whenever the blade set is removed from one engine and installed on a different engine. This AD requires additional inspections for the affected engines and removal of the Tay 611-8 engine from the applicability. This AD was prompted by a report of an additional engine failure due to multiple fan blade separation. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the LP compressor fan blade, engine failure, and damage to the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Alexander Schleicher, Segelflugzeugbau Gliders
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Alexander Schleicher, Segelflugzeugbau Model ASK 21 gliders. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as inadequate guidance for spin training operations. We are issuing this AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model DHC-8-400 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of excessive wear on the lower latch surface of the main landing gear (MLG) up-lock hook. This AD requires revising the maintenance program. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct up- lock hooks worn beyond the wear limit, which could prevent the successful extension of the MLG using the primary landing gear extension system, which in combination with an alternate extension system failure could result in the inability to extend the MLG.
