Staccato, previously known as STI Firearms or simply STI (Strayer-Tripp International), is an American firearm company based in Georgetown, Texas that manufactures modular M1911-style semi-automatic pistols, such as its proprietary 2011 handguns, and various gun parts for competition, duty and self-defense. All firearms are designed, engineered, and handcrafted in Texas with American materials and parts.

On May 26, 2020, STI Firearms announced that the company will begin operating as Staccato.

Staccato (formerly STI) is known for its modular frame guns, and shares the patent on the modular frame with Strayer Voigt Inc.

In 1990, Virgil Tripp, a gunsmith and machinist, started building custom M1911s for competition use, especially the United States Practical Shooting Association/International Practical Shooting Confederation. Virgil also designed parts for 1911s, including electrical discharge machining (EDM) hammers and sears. Virgil's company was called Tripp Research, Inc. and most of his parts were sold and marketed by Chip McCormick, a champion pistol shooter, under his company's name, Chip McCormick Corporation (known as CMC).

In June 1994, Sandy Strayer left STI to start a new company called Strayer Voigt Inc, which focuses on building custom pistols as opposed to the "semi-custom" models of STI.

In November 1994, Dave and Shirley Skinner, owners of an electronics company named Tessco, Inc., became involved in the operation of STI along with Virgil Tripp. In early 1997, the Skinners completed their purchase of STI from Virgil Tripp and renamed the company to STI International, Inc. Virgil went on to start a new company using the name Tripp Research, Inc., which produces various finishes for firearms and magazines for 1911s. During the Clinton era high-capacity ban, STI focused on exports and the growing concealed-carry market. As of 2007, STI was the third-largest exporter of pistols in America.

From 1994 to the late 1990s, STI had a custom shop which would build guns to customer's specifications.

In January 2005, Dave Skinner sold the company to the employees of STI, making it the first employee-owned company in the firearms industry.

In 2010, Tim Dillon was hired and made President and CEO, and later joined the Board of Directors. Dillon left the company in early 2014.

In 2014, Greg Mooney joined STI as the President/CEO and a Member of the Board of Directors.

In 2017, a private equity group, Westwind Investors, purchased STI.

In 2020, STI announced its name change to Staccato.

Midas Interactive Entertainment is a European publisher of computer, PDA, mobile phone, movies and video games. Midas Interactive Entertainment is based on the outskirts of Braintree in Essex, England.

Midas was originally founded as a Netherlands-based company called Midas Interactive Entertainment BV in 1998 by Paul Share. The company introduced their first labels: Reality and Arena Games. Midas focused exclusively on publishing games for Microsoft Windows and Macintosh.

In January 1999, Midas launched their Pocket Price Games label, alongside the compilation labels 2 in 1 and All in One Packs. A UK subsidiary known as Midas Interactive Entertainment Ltd. was founded in February of that year. Midas also acquired the Greenwich based game developer Interactive Entertainment Ltd. the same year, which would become a fully owned subsidiary of Midas. The company started to release games on the PlayStation in January 2000.

In 2001, Midas Interactive Entertainment Ltd. became the Corporate Headquarters for the Midas Interactive Entertainment Group. The original Netherlands-based office remains in operation for the bulk of International sales plus central European manufacturing, warehousing & distribution.

In 2002 Share founded Phoenix Games which took control over their movie and low price gaming publishing on PlayStation and PlayStation 2.

In 2005, Midas formed a sister company called Ghostlight, who would take control of localizing Japanese titles for the European market from Midas. Both companies, alongside Laughing Jackal became part of holding company Majesty House Group.

...

As of 2012, Midas no longer releases new titles, and has since been focusing on re-releasing older titles on the PlayStation Network, mainly localized Simple Series titles that Agetec released in the United States.

SurveyJS is a free and open source front-end web development library for web-based statistical survey applications written in JavaScript. The library supports several popular front-end frameworks, including Angular 2, jQuery, Knockout (web framework), React.js, Vue.js. As of January 2021 the library's codebase has been independently forked over 500 times and its react flavored npm package has reached a volume of over 11,000 weekly downloads.

SurveyJS started out as a beta release open-source project, published on the collaborative version control site GitHub in August 2015. In April 2018 the project officially became production-ready. In the following month it was announced that the library has become available in the form of a free and open-source pugin for the WordPress content management system.During the 8th Joint International Semantic Technology Conference, JIST 2018, held in Awaji, Japan, in November 2018, researchesrs from Fujitsu Ltd., presented their study on the topic of Practical use of Knowledge Graph with Case Studies using Semantic Web Publishing tools. To demonstrate their findings, they implemented a prototype using the SurveyJS library. The scientific paper documenting the implementation was later selected as one of only 6 papers out of 75 to be published in the peer-reviewed conference proceedings book.

In the 2020 book Re-imagining University Assessment in a Digital World, four professors from Deakin University discuss leveraging the SurveyJS library to build a 360-degree feedback tool for the needs of higher education.

SurveyJS features a collection of standard input widgets, including text and numeric fields, drop-down list boxes, radio buttons, check boxes, rating fields and more. Additionally, the library can be extended with custom input widgets. Forms and surveys can be delivered eaither in on a single or multiple pages. Response validation can be enforced either through basic conditions, regex, or SurveyJS' own expression engine. The expression engine is based on PEG.js, an open source parsing expression grammar library. Expressions can be used for input validation, conditional display rules for pages and

questions, calculated field values, and survey flow.

There are several features which enable surveys to run in the form of quizzes or exams. Most notably the question order can be randomized and there are optional time limits per page or quiz.

Survey questions can be optionally translated in up to 40 different languages. SurveyJS will automatically display the language, which matches the web client's locale.

SurveyJS includes an API, which allows the library to be extended in several ways:

  • Custom data fields can be added to the question, page, and survey data models
  • User-defined question types and input widgets can be added
  • Custom functions can be registered with SurveyJS' expression engine

Both the survey definitions and the user responses are formatted as JSON documents. Image or video based questions are available out-of-the-box. Additionally there is a widget, which allows respondents to upload files and submit them with the rest of the answers. In both cases images and documents are being stored within the JSON documents in the form of Base64 strings.

The original authors of the library, Devsoft Baltic, offer a suite of paid products, which complement the functionalities of the SurveyJS library. Those include a WYSIWYG survey editor application, a data analytics application, and a SaaS platform for survey delivery and response collection.

Lithium gold boride

Lithium gold boride

Lithium gold boride (chemical formula LiAu3B) is a material with a honeycomb-like structure that can be used to make superconducting batteries.

Article  (+4952 characters)

In 2018, LiAu3B metal was discovered.

LiAu3B is a ternary metal, consisting of the three elements lithium, gold and boron. The material is stable under extraction of its lithium atoms, during which it experiences a volume deviation of 0.42%.

The unit cell consists of three formula units of LiAu3B. The gold atoms are placed in a hexagonal structure. Together with the boron atoms, that are placed at the centre of trigonal prisms, they form the main skeleton of the material. The lithium atoms are placed at the centre of the hexagonal structure of the gold atoms.

The electronic structure of the material makes it useful for battery applications. The lithium atoms at the centre of the structure behave as donors, while the Au3B units surrounding the lithium behave as acceptors. Therefore the lithium atoms have a positive charge, whereas the host structure of gold and boron atoms has a negative charge. This follows from Mulliken charge analysis.

Under an increase of pressure, the B-Au bonds are less affected than the Au-Au bonds. Under an increase from 0 to 50 GPa, all bond lengths become smaller except those of the B-Au bonds. This is a result of the strong hybridization between the gold and boron atoms mentioned earlier. Furthermore, under increasing pressure, the electronegativity of the gold and boron atoms rises, while the electronegativity of the lithium atoms decreases. This can be explained by the fact that the length of the Au-Au bonds decreases under higher pressure. Because of the hexagonal structure of the gold atoms, the gold atoms will become closer to the lithium atoms and will be better able to 'steal' its electron. This means that the acceptation capacities of the gold and boron atoms increases under higher pressure.

This is the band structure of the material as calculated. The total density of states can be separated into 4 regions up to the Fermi energy. The first group is a sharp peak at approximately -48 eV. This one is due to the contribution of the 1s2 orbitals of the lithium atoms. The second peak is the result of the s-states of gold and boron, and is located between -11 and -9 eV. The third peak is caused by the d-states of gold and p-states of boron, located between -7 to -3 eV. The densities of both orbitals are relatively high in this region. Because the d- and p-states have approximately the same amount of energy in this region, it is easy for the electrons to hop between these two different orbitals. This, combined with the relatively high density of states in this region, will create a strong hybridization between the d-states and p-states of gold and boron respectively. The last peak is from -3 eV to the Fermi level. It is due to the p-states of gold and there is hybridization between p-states of gold and boron atoms. The hybridizations are responsible for higher covalency in Au-B bonds.

The flow of lithium ions from the cathode to the anode and vice versa, while facilitated by an Li+ conducting electrolyte, is analogous to the flow of current in ordinary batteries. It allows for simple charging and discharging of LiAu3B batteries. Furthermore, the lattice structure is preserved even when all lithium ions are removed from the structure, to a (temporary) host structure, and only a small volumetric deviation is observed when all lithium ions are removed. The deviation is only 0.42% of the total volume when there are no lithium atoms in the Au3B. This is because the lithium atoms are located at the centre of the hexagonal gold structures. Adding or removing the lithium atoms will not drastically change the structure of the gold and therefore also will not affect the volume too much. This is an important result for batteries because it is not desired to have batteries that change their volume while being charged or discharged. The average open-circuit voltage of 1.30V also makes the material promising to use in batteries.

The diffusion barrier is defined as the energy difference of the system when the lithium atoms are placed inside the host structure (inside the cathode) and when the lithium atoms are outside the structure (inside the anode). So the diffusion barrier is important for batteries, as it says something about how much energy is needed to charge or discharge the system. It also depends highly on pressure, as the Au-Au bond lengthes decreases under high pressures, and thus there will be less free space for the lithium atom to be placed in. Less free space means a higher diffusion barrier. For 0 GPA the diffusion barrier is approximately 0.30 eV and increases to 0.51 eV at 15 GPa. Boltzmann's constant kB can then be used to find a temperature dependent expression for the diffusion mobility.

...

Like most other lithium boride metals, superconductivity is also a property of LiAu3B. This is because the boron atoms create metal bonds. The superconductive properties can be derived from the phonon spectra of LiAu3B at 0 hydrostatic pressure.
