Dateline: Thu, 08 Feb 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BRUNSWICK, Md. - Feb. 8 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- ArtisticPursuit.com offers its users plenty of social networking features, as well as original artistic content, that often cost hundreds of dollars per year to use or download elsewhere.”

BRUNSWICK, Md. - Feb. 8 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- ArtisticPursuit.com offers its users plenty of social networking features, as well as original artistic content, that often cost hundreds of dollars per year to use or download elsewhere.

(c) Send2PressThe majority of social networking features on ArtisticPursuit.com are provided free to registered users. Subscribers also gain unbridled access to advanced social networking features for free, including greeting cards, personal ads, an advice column, e-mail, blogs, forums, and classified ads. By upgrading to subscriber status, one can access premium artistic content and get unlimited downloads.

Users may subscribe for a minimal annual fee of $19.99 to gain full access to premium content from artists. This cost is equivalent to less than one month of dating services elsewhere, or downloading approximately one album of music with two music videos to an iPod. Artistic Pursuit feels that its users deserve an affordable alternative to comparable Internet options available.

Artistic Pursuit differentiates its site from other content sites by allowing paid subscribers to upload content for consideration for the Top 100 Lists for videos, music, literature, images and online games. ArtisticPursuit.com publishes this listing each month with fresh new talent that has been reviewed for quality. Subscribers who have content selected for the Top 100 are paid for their content. Paid subscribers also have exclusive rights to enter contests, including the current music challenge that will award a demo recording contract to one winner this summer. Registered users who are non-paying subscribers can also upload and share content in the listings sections.

"Artistic Pursuit has learned a great deal from pioneers in both the artistic and social networking arenas, including Taxi, MySpace and YouTube," says Shelton Alexander, CEO of Artistic Pursuit, LLC. "The company wants to create a place for artists and fans that includes several social networking options accessible from one site, and then leverage these connection tools to discover and promote new artistic talent."

"We're building something like an online artists' colony," says Jeremy Biser, Vice President of Creative Content. "And the cool thing about it is that we've invited artists, fans and anyone else who wants to join us to come along."

ArtisticPursuit.com launched on January 1, 2007 and had approximately 1.5 million hits in its first month of inception. The company is now accepting original submissions from artists (subscribers) for the March 1st Top 100 Lists. Users can upload content to the listings section and utilize social networking features at any time.

The mission of ArtisticPursuit.com is to become the premier online destination for artists and fans to connect worldwide.

More Information: www.artisticpursuit.com.

More About ArtisticPursuit.com
ArtisticPursuit.com will bring together thousands of artists with millions of fans on a single Web site; its goal is to fill a void in the current entertainment marketplace by focusing on five artistic categories - videos, music, literature, images and online games.

ArtisticPursuit.com has given new hope to many artists who might otherwise give up on their craft. One registered user wrote in his blog, "I saw the commercial on TV ironically right as I said to myself 'Dude this is never going to work' referring to my films."

Social networking features are included in the site to build community and encourage collaboration among users. The site is designed with artists and entertainment enthusiasts in mind, but it is also a place where anyone with Internet access can make connections and build relationships.

Contests promoted by Artistic Pursuit are available only to subscribers. The current contest offers musicians a Demo Recording Contract as top prize to be awarded by July 2007. The company plans to announce a literature contest this spring. Artistic Pursuit is planning other promotional opportunities for artists within each of the five media categories later this year.

PricewaterhouseCoopers Analysis: Chinese Manufacturing Accounts for 90 Percent of Annual Growth in Worldwide Semiconductor Market

Author: PricewaterhouseCoopers
Dateline: Wed, 07 Feb 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “SAN JOSE, Calif. - Feb. 7 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Electronic systems manufactured in China were the driving factor behind 90 percent of growth in worldwide semiconductor consumption in 2005, continuing a trend first observed beginning in 2003, according to a comprehensive analysis by PricewaterhouseCoopers of Chinese and other published statistics on the subject.”



A R T I C L E:

Review of the industry statistics shows manufacturer demand for chips in China contributed to nearly all of the growth in the worldwide semiconductor market in 2005

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Feb. 7 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Electronic systems manufactured in China were the driving factor behind 90 percent of growth in worldwide semiconductor consumption in 2005, continuing a trend first observed beginning in 2003, according to a comprehensive analysis by PricewaterhouseCoopers of Chinese and other published statistics on the subject.

(c) Send2Press"China's Impact on the Semiconductor Industry: 2006 Update" states that for the first time, the China market alone was larger than that of Japan, the Americas, Europe, and the rest of the world in 2005, the most recent year for which data are available. *(Photo Caption: Cover of 'China's Impact on the Semiconductor Industry: 2006 Update')

By 2010, fully one-third of the worldwide market for semiconductors could be in China. A substantial percentage of this demand is now the result of electronic goods produced by Chinese original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The report estimates that 26 percent of Chinese demand in 2005 was from domestic OEMs compared with 20 percent in 2004.

Growth in electronic systems built in China for export accounted for a substantial portion of semiconductors consumed in China. Almost two thirds of the semiconductors consumed in 2005 were for products exported out of the country, up from 60% in 2004.

Despite China's substantial demand for chips, China continues to rely on multinational suppliers for semiconductors. No Chinese-branded companies ranked in the top 70 chip suppliers to China in 2005. Each of the top 10 suppliers to China exceeded $1 billion in sales in 2005. By contrast, the top Chinese semiconductor company in 2005 had less than $200 million in sales.

The report also highlighted the opportunity for semiconductor companies to further expand their share of the Chinese market. About half of the top 70 chip suppliers to China had noticeably less than average participation in the Chinese market.

"Semiconductor companies need to sharpen their focus on China to fully leverage the vast potential offered by the Chinese market," explains Raman Chitkara, Global Managing Partner of Semiconductor Industry Services at PricewaterhouseCoopers. "Enhanced local presence and business development efforts may be needed for semiconductor suppliers to achieve long term success in China."

China's Impact on the Semiconductor Industry: 2006 Update evaluates the current status of the semiconductor industry in China, assesses geographical and product category demand, reviews shifts in the semiconductor value chain, and concludes with a consideration of the three different IC production growth scenarios. To accomplish this, the report reconciles data from different, incomplete, and often contradictory reports from various sources. The report is intended to fill in gaps in previously published material and reveal information that was not apparent in the original sources.

Java Juice(R) Brings Joe-To-Go to Military, Rescue Personnel and Campers

Author: Java Juice, Inc.

VENICE, Calif. - Feb. 7 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Originally, Java Juice(R) was created for, and embraced by, the outdoor-adventure industry. The success of the just-add-water, single-serving version of the product promoted awareness of a need to get the lightweight packets to American soldiers, say the folks at Java Juice, Inc. (javajuiceextract.com). Brigade Quartermaster gratefully accepted boxes of Java Juice(R) and immediately sent them abroad.

(c) Send2PressThe liquid-coffee extract buzz has caught on with US troops; and company owners, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Karno, are helping the military squeeze the most out of their budget. "By donating thousands of packets of Java Juice(R), our well-deserving soldiers now have access to excellent field coffee."

Reaching deployed soldiers was a goal for owner Ms. A. Karno, who said, "The highlight of the year was a letter from a deployed soldier in Afghanistan."

SSG R. Kohlenberger wrote:
"First, it's cold here. I mean really cold. Nothing is better on a cold, windy Afghanistan night than a hot cup of coffee. Second, your coffee is really good. I mean that. 'Instant' coffee tends to be, well, pretty nasty stuff. But, the coffee extract that you sent is excellent. Here in Afghanistan, we don't have much in the way of creature comforts."

Richard and his wife Arlene felt it "was a priority to get Java Juice(R) overseas, as a way to contribute." The Santa Clarita chapter of Blue Star Mothers was delighted to send the donation of over 5,000 packets of Java Juice(R) to men and women on-tour. US-military suppliers recognize the popularity of these little packets of perk and are ensuring they're available through military and camping wholesalers such as www.REI.com, www.peregrineoutfitters.com, and www.campmor.com.

According to Brigade Quartermasters' Mike McCourt, "The portability, ease-of-use, and speed with which you can put together a refreshing cup of coffee is surpassed only by coffeehouse flavor. What a hassle-free way to recharge the batteries."

Arlene Karno said, "The many letters we receive from, firefighters and EMT workers in the field thanking us for Java Juice, tells us we got it right."

Fire Captain writes from Montana writes: "After a really long day and night chasing fires, one of my co-workers introduced me to Java Juice. WOW, what an amazing transformation! Talk about jump-starting the day! The flavor - truly amazing! 'I'm hooked!'"

A. Pezza EMT/Firefighter wrote: "Your product that works great for EMT's who work 12-16 hour shifts and depend on good coffee to get through their day."

Java Juice(R) is organic-coffee extract, roasted from the finest Arabica beans. It contains no chemicals or preservatives and is fairly traded and kosher with a guaranteed one-year shelf life.

New Book Spills the Beans on How to Protect Family Assets from Nursing Home Costs

Author: Phylius Press
Dateline: Tue, 06 Feb 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BOULDER, Colo. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Nursing home costs are skyrocketing to an average of $75,000 per year and a new book - 'How to Protect Your Family's Assets from Devastating Nursing Home Costs: Medicaid Secrets' (Phylius Press, ISBN: 978-0-9790801-1-1) - teaches people how to qualify for Medicaid to get these expenses paid.”

ARCHIVAL CONTENT

BOULDER, Colo., Feb. 6 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Nursing home costs are skyrocketing to an average of $75,000 per year and a new book - "How to Protect Your Family's Assets from Devastating Nursing Home Costs: Medicaid Secrets" (Phylius Press, ISBN: 978-0-9790801-1-1) - teaches people how to qualify for Medicaid to get these expenses paid.

For the first time ever, the inside secrets of high-priced estate planning and elder law attorneys are revealed.

Author K. Gabriel Heiser has been an attorney specializing in elder care and estate planning for the last 23 years, helping hundreds of people pay for nursing home care by teaching them how to protect their assets. This book enables him to share his knowledge with a wider audience.

The book reveals information about Medicaid that many people find difficult to discover on their own. For example: Did you know that Medicaid currently pays the bills of over 50 percent of all nursing home residents? Did you know that money can be converted into real property that is exempt?

Heiser explains that people do not have to be broke to qualify for Medicaid. In fact, in February 2006, many of the rules affecting how one qualifies for Medicaid coverage of nursing-home expenses were radically changed due to the passage of the Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, making existing books dangerously out-of-date.

"The Medicaid system is extremely complex and cumbersome for the average person to understand," Heiser said. "However, when you have the map for navigating the system, the mystery disappears. My goal in writing this book is to give the benefit of my 23 years' experience to the lay public, and save them money."

The book includes tips on: how to title your home so you do not lose it to the state; how to make transfers to family members that won't disqualify you from Medicaid; how annuities make assets "disappear"; smart tricks for "spending down" assets; what to change in your will to save thousands of dollars if a spouse ever needs nursing home care; the single document that can possibly save thousands; and much more.

How Will Insurance Companies Respond to Victims of Friday’s Tornado? asks Central Florida Attorney

Author: Garfinkel Trial Group
Dateline: Mon, 05 Feb 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “ORLANDO, Fla. - Feb. 5 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- As the camera lights fade and the media attention dies down in the coming weeks, those familiar insurance slogans of 'Like a Good Neighbor,' 'You're in Good Hands' and others, may unfortunately give way to an industry whose past is shaky to say the least, especially in recent years. Central Florida resident attorney Alan Garfinkel, of Garfinkel Trial Group, is the nation's leading expert in natural disaster law and is currently representing thousands of hurricane victims across the country. ”

ORLANDO, Fla. - Feb. 5 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- As the camera lights fade and the media attention dies down in the coming weeks, those familiar insurance slogans of "Like a Good Neighbor," "You're in Good Hands" and others, may unfortunately give way to an industry whose past is shaky to say the least, especially in recent years. Central Florida resident attorney Alan Garfinkel, of Garfinkel Trial Group, is the nation's leading expert in natural disaster law and is currently representing thousands of hurricane victims across the country.

(c) Send2PressHis experience in dealing with insurance companies for the past 18 years leads him to believe that many victims of Friday's tornadoes will fall prey to the usual tactics of an industry who practices the old familiar games of delay, deny or underpay.

*(Photo Caption: Press conference at Miami Courthouse. Garfinkel files more than 700 hurricane lawsuits.)

While it may be too early to make this assumption, the fact still remains that thousands of victims from the 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons are still fighting the very same insurance companies that are setting up camp in the affected areas today. This is an industry that made over $100 Billion Dollars in profits in the past two years and that is after paying claims for the damages sustained by hurricanes Katrina, Wilma, Frances, Ivan, Jeanne, Charley, Rita, and Gaston. These record profits were made by systematically underpaying claims in New Orleans, Mississippi and Florida.

"I do not want to make any predictions," says Garfinkel, "but I will be monitoring the response from the insurance companies. These folks have lost it all and in some cases they lost loved ones. Insurance policies are very difficult to understand and many policyholders will be at a great disadvantage when dealing with their insurance company. It is necessary to always get a second opinion on the dollar amount your insurance company claims you sustained."

Here are a few helpful tips for anyone who will be dealing with their insurance company in the coming days:
    #1 - Prepare a detailed inventory of personal property damaged. Immediately take pictures of all your damaged or wet personal belongings including furniture, clothes, electronics, etc. Also photograph any structural damage to the inside or outside of your home or business.

    #2 - Be wary of talking to your adjuster; remember that they work for your insurance company and not for you. Try to document all your conversations with your adjuster and with your insurance company. This could come in handy in case you need to file a complaint, or later hire an attorney.

    #3 - Be careful of what you sign. NEVER EVER sign any documents that state a final payment. You may be entitled to more money.
According to Mr. Garfinkel, there are too many tips to mention in this press release. It is vitally important that the victims of Friday's tornadoes understand what they may be facing in the coming weeks, months or in some cases, years.

Throughout his career, Mr. Garfinkel has appeared, or been interviewed as an expert guest, on almost every news network and in publications across the country. News organizations seek his legal advice after a natural disaster occurs. Attorney Garfinkel also serves as the National Moderator for Lexis-Nexis, one of the largest legal research organizations in the world. Garfinkel Trial Group website: www.gtgfirm.com.

Authernative Granted EU Patent for User Authentication Method

Author: Authernative, Inc.
Dateline: Mon, 05 Feb 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - Feb. 5 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Authernative, Inc., the developer of innovative user authentication and identity management technologies, announced today that the European Patent Office has granted the company its patent for a user authentication method (patent number EP1434408).”



A R T I C L E:

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - Feb. 5 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Authernative, Inc., the developer of innovative user authentication and identity management technologies, announced today that the European Patent Office has granted the company its patent for a user authentication method. The newly issued patent number EP1434408 titled "Authentication System and Method Based upon Random Partial Pattern Recognition" describes a "what user knows" authentication method which provides stronger security than traditional passwords.

(c) Send2PressUnlike the standard static password recognition algorithm which requires the user to enter the entire password in one authentication session, the patented Random Partial Pattern Recognition algorithm requests only a random session-specific subset of the user's credential. This technology significantly reduces the credential's entropy leakage and renders one-time authentication responses difficult to compromise. Moreover, the method's virtual keyboards and menus containing alpha-numeric characters, images or colors enable high combinatorial security and an easy cognitive way to select, remember, and enter the user's credentials. The combination of these security and usability features provide stronger protection against known attacks while delivering a simple and more engaging user experience.

The patented technology is just one of the authentication methods available in Authernative's AuthGuard(R) authentication product. Authernative was the first to pioneer what Gartner calls Versatile Authentication Server (VAS) - "a common enterprise infrastructure supporting multiple open and proprietary authentication methods. This approach enables an enterprise to use different forms of authentication depending on who is logging in, where the login is taking place and for what purpose. A VAS also gives an enterprise a simple means of migrating to new authentication methods as its needs change and new methods emerge."

AuthGuard(R) versatile authentication server offers a range of legacy and innovative authentication methods having scalable security, high usability, low total cost of ownership, and self-service capabilities. Authentication options include the following methods: legacy password, enhanced password, patented one-time challenge - one-time response, patent-pending next-generation out-of-band, and strong mutual authentication. These authentication factors, used alone or in combination, allow for one-factor, layered, and multi-factor authentication security. All are provided through a single product which allows the personalization of the level of security and the ease-of-use particular to users' needs or companies' policies - whether at service providers with millions of users, global enterprises, ASPs, or small and medium businesses.

Use of advanced authentication factors for stronger, layered, or multi-factor authentication is increasingly becoming a generally accepted approach around the world. However, key challenges remain not only when it comes to the ease-of-use, the cost to purchase, deploy, and manage authentication solutions, but also to provide a flexible range of options appropriate for different business requirements and user personalized choices. Authernative solutions best address these requirements.

The company's products are used to prevent unauthorized access to confidential data, protected resources, and financial transactions.

KNOXVILLE, Md. - Feb. 5 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Consumer concern about rising gas prices late last summer has brought increased attention to alternate fuel vehicles such as hydrogen and electric cars. Mike Harvey of Knoxville (and Harvey Coachworks), one such concerned consumer, took it upon himself and has recently completed a 4-month effort to convert a gas-powered car to an all-electric zero-emissions vehicle.

(c) Send2PressThe conversion, a '92 VW Cabriolet recently won numerous awards and accolades at an electric vehicle competition and show in WPB, Florida. The objective of the car according to Harvey was to convert a car to electric with parts available to anyone with the desire to build one. *(Photo Caption: '92 VW Cabriolet zero-emissions conversion.)

Designed for a range of 70-80 miles per charge; the car has enough range to cover Harvey's 58 mile roundtrip commute to Dulles, Va. Driving electric will save Harvey an estimated $2500 per year in commuting costs.

In addition to the "Cabby" costing less than 3 cents/mile to operate, it produces no emissions, and requires far less maintenance than it did as a gasoline powered car.

Harvey Coachworks was founded in 2006 and provides conversion and consultation services on electric and hybrid vehicle conversions. More information: www.hevimotors.com.
