Thai Immigrant Wins Title of Miss Cougar America 2012 and Free Cougar Cruise

Jaravee Vu, who prefers dating men as much as 25 years her junior, was crowned Miss Cougar America 2012 in San Francisco on April 13, 2012.

San Rafael, CA, April 17, 2012 -- Contact: Tom Andrews, 415/507-9962

Jaravee Vu was crowned Miss Cougar America 2012 on Lucky Friday the 13th of April, 2012, at The Hard Rock CafĂ© in San Francisco. She won a free berth on the Western Caribbean Cougar Cruise, December 8-13, 2012, departing from Tampa, FL and visiting the ports of Key West FL and Cozumel, Mexico, aboard Royal Caribbean’s Jewel of the Seas.

Jaravee immigrated into the USA twenty years ago from Thailand and resides in San Bruno, CA. She is a casino dealer and 50 years of age.

Jaravee prefers dating much younger men. Recently she was in a two year relationship with a Cub 25 years her junior. “They are in better shape and more muscular than older men,” she says. “I work out two hours at the gym, three times a week, and I have a strong preference for men who are committed to physical fitness.”

Jaravee is available to the news media for interviews by calling 415-507-9962 or emailing Rich Gosse at

The Miss Cougar America 2012 Contest was sponsored by The Society of Single Professionals, the world’s largest non-profit singles organization; and by The Singles Travel Company.

NanoMarkets Announces Release of New Report on Metal Oxide Thin Film Transistors (TFTs)

NanoMarkets announces the release of its new report on emerging opportunities for metal oxide thin-film transistors (TFTs).

Glen Allen, Virginia - April 17, 2012 -- Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets announces the release of its new report on emerging opportunities for metal oxide thin-film transistors (TFTs). In the new report, which is titled, “Metal Oxide Thin-Film Transistor Markets,” NanoMarkets estimates that the total market for display backplanes based on oxide TFTs will reach $2.1 billion by 2017. Additional details about the report are available at:

About the Report:

This report shows how oxide TFTs will become an important enabling technology for the display industry providing an improved path to lower power consumption, higher refresh rates and other capabilities that are increasingly valued by display makers. NanoMarkets projects that oxide TFT backplanes will offer these capabilities at a reasonable cost and with scalable manufacturing processes. Oxide TFT backplanes are seen by NanoMarkets as an improvement over the common amorphous silicon based backplanes which are reaching their performance limits and also over the newer LTPS approach which is expensive and limited in scalability.

This report includes detailed eight-year forecasts of oxide TFT backplanes in both value and volume terms, with breakouts by type of display (LCD and AMOLED) and display application (smartphones, televisions, tablets and PCs). It also contains analysis of the leading firms active in the oxide TFT space and their product/market strategies, including AUO, CBRITE, Hewlett Packard, Jusung Engineering, JX Nippon Mining & Metals, LG, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, Toppan Printing, Toshiba and Ulvac Materials.

From the Report:

In the coming battle between LCD and AMOLED technologies for dominance of the high-performance display market, NanoMarkets notes that firms supplying oxide TFT-based backplanes will assume the role of “arms dealers” supplying both camps.

LCD makers will ultimately turn to oxide TFTs because oxide TFTs can offer better performance than LTPS at a much lower cost which will help LCD address the onslaught of AMOLEDs. And although LCD firms are notoriously reluctant to adopt new materials, NanoMarkets says that even quite small penetration by oxide TFTs in this sector will generate large revenues. In the report NanoMarkets expects revenues from oxide TFTs sold into the LCD sector to reach $ 1.9 billion by 2017.

Meanwhile, NanoMarkets projects that oxide TFTs will become a major enabling technology for AMOLED displays, especially large AMOLED TVs. While the commercialization of such displays has been frustrated by the lack of an effective backplane technology, oxide TFTs bring small transistor size to the table thus allowing more space for emission from the OLED; low cost; and good uniformity. Given the impressive features of oxide TFTs, oxide TFTs will penetrate the AMOLED market quite quickly.

About NanoMarkets:

NanoMarkets tracks and analyzes emerging market opportunities in energy, electronics and other markets created by developments in advanced materials. The firm is a recognized leader in industry analysis and forecasts of this kind and has been covering the OLED device and materials sectors for more than six years.

Pam Brekas is the Featured Artist for Light Space & Time Art Gallery

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that Pam Brekas is this month's featured artist.

Jupiter, Florida - April 17, 2012 -- Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that Pam Brekas is this month's featured artist. Pam is a northern Nevada based abstract painter and digital photographer who has participated in many of the gallery’s exhibitions, since the August 2010 “Abstractions” exhibition.

Besides being an award winning artist, Pam is also an art instructor in her home studio in Gardnerville, Nevada and St. Mary’s Art Center in Virginia City, NV, as well as an arts & crafts instructor on cruise ships.

Since 2001 Pam has received over 170 awards for her abstract painting and digital photography in juried local, state, regional, national and international shows, including an experimental art award in 2002 from the Livermore Art Association. Her work has hung in solo shows in art centers and museums on the west coast and in group shows throughout the county.

Pam states about her art, “Art is an adventure for me. It’s a creative playground to explore as I figure out what I'm going to do when I grow up-or maybe I will just play my way through life and forget growing up.”

She goes on further and says, “Painting, drawing, collage, photography and writing have always been a part of my life and I see no reason to stop any of them. The arts give the soul a voice and everyone has a voice-some just don't realize it yet or fear the unknown. Since my art is unconventional, using linoleum brayers and kitchen spatulas as my tools, people look at it as play. I will therefore paint and play and not worry about the consequences.”

Finally, Pam states that, “God paints with me and through me, giving rise to images and combinations of colors and shapes that I alone with a brush would not be able to make. It is a moment of clarity and truth-my truth-that allows for the experience. Each moment in time is a NOW, and if I remain in the NOW, then I have no past or future to concern me. Paint in the NOW. Don't judge, don't criticize, don't fret, just blissfully paint, and enjoy the NOW. Your truth will emerge as you create.” Pam Brekas' wonderful art and portfolio can be viewed at
