  • Publication number: 20210371673
    Abstract: A coated body is obtained by providing a surface layer of a coating composition on a substrate, wherein the surface layer contains cerium oxide particles having an oxygen-deficient fluorite structure and having an average crystallite diameter of 10 nm or less, and the cerium oxide particles have, in a Raman spectrum, a peak that is attributed to the F2g vibration mode of a Ce—O bond and that is offset by more than 2 cm?1 toward the lower wavenumber from a peak that is attributed to the F2g vibration mode of a Ce—O bond and that is obtained when a standard substance is measured. This coated body significantly suppresses fungal growth inside of a door and algal growth outside of a door for a long period of time.

  • Publication number: 20210283504
    Abstract: A computer system detects occurrence of an action exchange in which one of a player character and an opponent character performs a first action and another one of the player character and the opponent character performs a second action to mutually exchange the actions. Based on a first stiff time related to the first action, a second stiff time related to the second action, and a time difference between the first stiff time and the second stiff time, when a stiff time (hereinafter referred to as an “own stiff time”) related to an action performed by the player character is shorter than a stiff time related to an action performed by the opponent character, the computer system presents a player controlling the player character with a recommended candidate action recommended to be performed after an end of the own stiff time.
