OLED Lighting & Materials Market Forecast to 2022; RnRMarketResearch.com adds "OLED Lighting Markets-2014 and OLED Materials Markets - 2014" reports to its store.
July 27, 2014
OLED Lighting Markets-2014 Six years ago, OLED lighting was first being proposed as a serious commercial product. Back then, 2014 was projected as the year when OLED lighting would first make its impact felt on general illumination. It didn't happen. OLED lighting has been available for four years now, but with few signs of it's moving beyond the luxury and specialist lighting sector. Also, the disappearance of GE from this space is another reason to treat OLED lighting with a little less respect than it once had.

Local water projects tap Bush-era bill
July 27, 2014
This city's rust-tainted water is on a slow path to rehabilitation as a second water main replacement begins Friday, public works officials said. About 2,500 feet of underground steel pipe, the concrete lining of which has worn away, will be ripped up to make way for new pipes, fire hydrants and water meters. The repair is expected to take two months. "Our water main system dates back to the late 1920s and has become almost famously unreliable, as seen by major leakage and significant damage to the street," said Sierra Madre Public Works Director Bruce Inman.
