Online Art Gallery Now Accepts 3 Dimensional Art

The Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery (LST) is pleased to announce that they will now accept 3 dimensional art (3D Art) into their future online art competitions.

Jupiter, FL, USA (May 16, 2014) — The Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery (LST) is pleased to announce that they will now accept 3 dimensional art (3D Art) into their future online art competitions. In the past, LST decided not to accept this type of art, as many presentations of 3D art were below their standards in quality for publishing art on their website.

3D art which will now be acceptable for entering into their online art competitions will be sculpture, collage, pottery, relief type art, kinetics, installation art, assemblage, crafts, carving, glass, jewelry, paper and related media, as long as the art which is entered is in keeping and related to the gallery’s theme. The 3D Art that the LST Gallery will accept for entry into their online exhibitions must still be presented professionally and at an acceptable high quality.

The LST Gallery receives many inquiries every month about accepting 3D Art and we hope that this policy change regarding expanding acceptable media will help the 3D artists to increase their venues to a much larger and quality audience of viewers.

We have put together a small post on how to photograph 3D Art properly and we hope that any artists who choose to enter their art in the gallery’s online art competitions will read and review these helpful ideas. Here is a link to the post “Tips for Photographing 3 Dimensional Art”.

If you know of any 3D Artists or of any art organizations who may be interested in this announcement, we hope that you will make them aware of this news by forwarding this post to them.

Communities in Schools Pennsylvania Announces Continued Improvement Graduation Rates

Every 26 seconds, a young person in America drops out of school. When students drop out, they are more likely to end up in poverty, suffer poor health, be dependent on social services, and enter the criminal justice system

Harrisburg, PA, May 16, 2014 – As kids around the country are graduating, Communities In Schools of Pennsylvania – part of the nation’s largest and most effective organization dedicated to keeping kids in school and helping them succeed in life – today released a report demonstrating the organization’s impact on dropout rates, highlighted by local success stories. The report was released as part of a national public awareness campaign featuring young people from around the country who have graduated from high school as a result of their involvement with Communities In Schools.

“The work we do has changed the lives of thousands of Pennsylvanians, and we look forward to continuing our services and empowering students to stay in school. said Ryan Riley, President of Communities In Schools Pennsylvania, in the new report, entitled Changing the Picture of Education in Pennsylvania. “Our staff has the talent and past success to positively change the future for even more students across the Commonwealth.”

Every 26 seconds, a young person in America drops out of school. When students drop out, they are more likely to end up in poverty, suffer poor health, be dependent on social services, enter the criminal justice system and cost the U.S. billions of dollars each year in lost revenue and increased spending on government assistance programs. To change the picture in Pennsylvania, Communities In Schools is serving nearly 39,000 students in 58 schools this year, working hand in hand with districts, communities, partner organizations and families to surround students with a strong network of support.

According to the new report, Communities In Schools Pennsylvania achieved the following during the 2012-13 school year:

• 5 elementary schools, 12 middle schools and 41 high schools were served.
• Approximately 39,000 students were served by Communities In Schools Pennsylvania; 33,489 of students received Level One supports (school-wide prevention services) and 4,662 of students received Level Two supports (targeted and sustained interventions).
• 69% percent of seniors receiving targeted and sustained interventions (and for whom data were available) graduated.
• 75% percent of the students in grades K-11 who received targeted and sustained interventions (and for whom data were available) were promoted to the next grade.

“When I look at the state of education today and what it takes to serve the whole child—Communities in Schools is providing the solutions our schools, students and communities need” said C. Russell Mayo, Ed.D., Allentown School District Superintendent.

To raise awareness about Communities In Schools, a public awareness campaign is running nationwide, featuring short videos by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Errol Morris and photos by renowned photographer David Harriman. These videos and images are online at

Communities In Schools Pennsylvania is part of the national Communities In Schools network, which operates in more than 2,200 schools in the most challenged communities of 26 states and the District of Columbia. Working closely with school districts and partner organizations, Communities In Schools serves 1.3 million young people and their families each year. Based directly inside schools throughout the country, Communities In Schools connects students and their families to basic and critical educational and community-based resources, tailored to each student’s specific needs.

New NanoMarkets Report Projects OLED Lighting Market to Hit Revenues of $1.4 billion in 2019

Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has just published its latest forecasts of the OLED lighting market predicting a $1.4 billion market opportunity in 2019.

Glen Allen, Virginia (May 15, 2014) — Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has just published its latest forecasts of the OLED lighting market predicting a $1.4 billion market opportunity in 2019. The report, “OLED Lighting Markets-2014” (Code Nano-721) notes that while the sector has foundered for the past few years it now appears to be worthy of some renewed optimism based on both on both improvements in OLED lighting panel performance and recent expansion of manufacturing facilities.

Details of the report, including a table of contents and downloadable slides are available at

A companion report titled OLED Materials Markets 2014 will be issued in early June. See


OLEDs aren’t just for luxury lighting any more. The efficacy and luminance of OLED lighting panels are reaching levels where OLED lighting firms can claim that their products are truly energy efficient and have the brightness that make them a practical form of lighting for offices and homes. For example, LG Chem says that next year it will have 135 lm/W panels with 5,000 cd/m2 luminance.

Until recently, most of the output of the OLED lighting business was development kits for designers. However, in the next few years, revenues from kits will be rapidly overtaken by revenues from OLED luminaires, with revenues from OLED luminaires for homes reaching almost $400 million in sales by 2019 and revenues from OLED office luminaires reaching almost $380 million in the same year.

OLED capacity continues to grow. In the past three years, Osram and Philips have invested $25 million and $57 million respectively in setting up OLED production lines. Meanwhile, Konica Minolta is currently constructing an OLED mass production facility at an approximate investment of around $100 million.

By next year, worldwide capacity for OLED lighting panels is expected to be around 30 million panels. This number is expected to grow to almost 40 million by 2019. NanoMarkets believes that in the next five years there will be a major influx of low-cost (and possibly government subsidized) Chinese suppliers that will force down OLED lighting prices in a manner similar to what the solar panel industry has experienced.

About the Report:

This report provides a comprehensive analysis of the OLED lighting market, assesses its future potential and offers detailed eight-year forecasts for the OLED lighting business including volume (units and square meters shipped) and value projections of the following market segments: designer kits and related products, office and commercial lighting, residential lighting, non-automotive outdoor lighting, automotive lighting and customized installations.

The report also includes projections of manufacturing capacity for OLED lighting panels and an assessment of which geographic regions will prove the best customers for OLED lighting.
