Intersection of block 2 with column 5. The value <1> only appears in one or more of squares R1C5, R2C5 and R3C5 of block 2. These squares are the ones that intersect with column 5. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of column 5 cannot contain this value.
   R4C5 - removing <1> from <1789> leaving <789>
Intersection of block 6 with column 7. The value <1> only appears in one or more of squares R4C7, R5C7 and R6C7 of block 6. These squares are the ones that intersect with column 7. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of column 7 cannot contain this value.
   R7C7 - removing <1> from <178> leaving <78>
Squares R4C4 and R7C4 in column 4 and R4C7 and R7C7 in column 7 form a Simple X-Wing pattern on possibility <8>. All other instances of this possibility in rows 4 and 7 can be removed.
   R4C5 - removing <8> from <789> leaving <79>
Squares R4C2 and R4C5 in row 4 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <79>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the row.
   R4C4 - removing <7> from <178> leaving <18>
   R4C7 - removing <7> from <178> leaving <18>
Intersection of column 4 with block 8. The value <7> only appears in one or more of squares R7C4, R8C4 and R9C4 of column 4. These squares are the ones that intersect with block 8. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of block 8 cannot contain this value.
   R8C6 - removing <7> from <178> leaving <18>
Squares R1C5 and R1C9 in row 1, R4C2 and R4C5 in row 4 and R8C2 and R8C9 in row 8 form a Swordfish pattern on possibility <7>. All other instances of this possibility in columns 2, 5 and 9 can be removed.
   R5C5 - removing <7> from <789> leaving <89>
   R5C9 - removing <7> from <78> leaving <8>
   R7C2 - removing <7> from <167> leaving <16>
