Explore the Wild Beauty of the Mississippi River in “Down on the Batture”

New Orleans, Louisiana – WEBWIRE

In his new book, Down on the Batture, Oliver Houck offers an extended meditation on a unique and vibrant river wilderness abutting the Mississippi River. In the book, Houck explores the lesser-known corners of the Mississippi, the batture, and the remarkable humanity that has made it their home.

From ramblers to rabbit hunters and teenage beer drinkers, to fishers and dog walkers, to sunset watchers to fugitives from alimony payments, to the haunting artwork on the sides of rusty barges, Down on the Batture tells the story of a place that is both seemingly pastoral and highly surprising. Houcks narrative includes plantations, murder, pollution, land grabs, keelboat brawlers, slave rebellions, landside casinos, and the first boxing championship on American soil.

Houck draws from his experience in New Orleans since the early 1970s in the practice and teaching of law. He has been a player in many of the issues he describes, although he does not undertake to argue them in the book. Instead, story by story, he uses the batture to explore the forces that have shaped and spell out the future of the region. The picture emerges of a place that―for all its tangle of undergrowth, drifting humanity, shifting dimensions in the rise and fall of floodwater―provides respite and sanctuary for values that are original to America and ever at risk from the homogenizing forces of civilization.

Down on the Batture is a book that will fascinate readers with its vivid portrait of a unique American landscape. It is also one that opens your eyes into a part of the world most of us didnt know exists, then helps you understand it―and everything else. And finally, it is simply a set of adventures as refreshing and insightful as an afternoon on the raft with Mark Twains Huck and Jim.

Oliver A. Houck is Emeritus Professor of law and David Boies Chair in Public Interest Law at Tulane University. He has received the Distinguished Achievement Award from the Environmental Section of the American Bar Association and Louisianas Conservationist of the Year. He is author of Taking Back Eden: Eight Environmental Cases That Changed the World; Downstream Toward Home: A Book of Rivers; Uijongbu: A Soldiers Life in Korea; and The Court of General Sessions (his life as a federal prosecutor in Washington D.C.).His books pending publication include Waking up the Dream State (environmental litigation in Louisiana), and The Most Dangerous Branch (the United States Supreme Court).

The Beauty of Life Through The Complexity of Biology

Dr. Henry M. Sobell publishes his second book on his research about the structure of DNA

Toronto, Ontario, Canada – WEBWIRE

Organization of DNA in Chromatin remains my most important book along with Premeltons in DNA. Dr. Sobell shares.

After the success of his first book Premeltons in DNA, internationally-renowned researcher Dr. Henry M. Sobell pens a follow-up informative publication entitled Organization of DNA in Chromatin.

In Organization of DNA in Chromatin, Dr. Sobell proposes a more organized structure to a presented model showing how intricate the composition of DNA is within the nucleosome. The new model, which is modified from a previous presentation, explains that a number of aperiodic structures can increase the periodic cutting patterns observed experimentally if there was a fair chance of both 10 base-pairs of B-DNA or 11 base-pairs of A-DNA occurring on a given segment of the left-handed toroidal superhelical structure.

Organization of DNA in Chromatin remains my most important book along with Premeltons in DNA, Dr. Sobell shares. Both books remain my most important scientific contribution, and I recommend that they be read carefully by students and professors studying molecular biology and biophysics.

This book, much like the first publication authored by Dr. Sobell, is a must-have for those eager to understand more about the topic of genetics. With the expertise offered by the author throughout its pages, Organization of DNA in Chromatin does an excellent job of rendering additional knowledge about genetics and DNA to an audience that is in the field of science.

According to Frost & Sullivan, Beauty Farm is the largest provider of traditional beauty services and the fourth largest non-surgical aesthetic medical service provider in China with a market share of 0.2% and 0.6% respectively, as measured by revenue in 2021.

Constant evolution of business model in response to market demand, offering clients overall beauty and health management services

As the leading chain brand in China’s beauty and health management service industry, Beauty Farm has provided traditional beauty services to clients for nearly three decades. With insights into clients’ increasingly diversified demand accumulated through years of services, the Company has extended its offerings by providing more sophisticated services such as aesthetic medical services since 2011. Thereafter, the Company commenced to build its subhealth assessment and intervention service capacity in 2018, in response to the rising demand of subhealth assessment and intervention services as a result of consumption upgrade and China’s rising prevalence rate of subhealth status. Counting the revenue generated in 2021, traditional beauty services, aesthetic medical services, and subhealth assessment and intervention services represented 58.8%, 37.8% and 3.4% of the total revenue for the year. These service offerings of Beauty Farm complement each other and create a synergistic effect for the overall operations of the Company. The Company’s long history in traditional beauty services has positioned the Company uniquely in the industry and fueled the revenue growth without significant increase in customer acquisition costs as the Company has become many members’ lifelong trusted advisor on health and beauty. And 21.7% and 21.2% of members of the Company’s traditional beauty services in 2021 and the six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively, purchased aesthetic medical services or subhealth assessment and intervention services, which is expected to further grow in the future. Likewise, the expansion of aesthetic medical services and subhealth assessment and intervention services can also further boost the growth of traditional beauty services going forward.

Standardized services supported by digitalized platform

Beauty Farm has established an integrated service platform to ensure high-quality services to its clients in a consistent manner across all stores. The digitalized platform of the Company is supported by standardized operating procedures and digital infrastructure covering stringent quality control, training system and supply chain management. The Company achieved one of the few highest service personnel annual retention rates in 2021 within the beauty and health management service industry. Among all the service personnel who have stayed with us for more than one year, they have an average of 6.1 years of retention. The standardization and digitalization of the business platform provides scale advantages across various aspects of the Company’s operations that can be leveraged by its stores and service personnel. The integrated service platform is capable of consolidating and processing operational data accumulated from various systems across the store network. The Company also applies data mining and data analytics to obtain valuable insights to profile its clients’ transaction patterns, consumption habits, and lifetime client value. Such tech-enabled enhancements allow the Company to customize its services according to clients’ needs so as to maintain their stickiness and identify cross-selling opportunities. The platform-based operating model allows Beauty Farm to standardize various aspects of its operations to improve both client experience and the service performance of its service personnel. In addition, as the Company continues to accumulate and analyze digital information from its day-to-day business operations, the Company can further improve its operational efficiency.

In addition to the increasing client volume in direct stores, the franchised stores of the Company served 27,916 active members in 2021 and 22,552 active members in the six months ended June 30, 2022.

Sustainable development supported by organic growth and strategic acquisitions

Beauty Farm has a proven track record of rapidly expanding its geographic footprint across China and has achieved rapid and sustainable business growth through both organic growth and strategic acquisitions. The scalability and replicability of its business is evidenced by its ability to open new stores rapidly. The Company opened 45 new direct stores from 2019 to June 30, 2022. Beauty Farm is able to ramp-up its new stores and achieve profitability efficiently. Contributed by the Company’s long-term business relationship with prime shopping malls and the ability to bring strong footage to the venue, the typical lead time from the completion of site selection to store opening is approximately three months. From 2014 to June 30, 2022, a new traditional beauty service store on average achieved initial breakeven in eleven months after commencement of operation.

Beauty Farm experienced a successful track record of identifying, acquiring and integrating stores into its network. The Company has completed 20 acquisitions in beauty and health management service industry from 2014 to June 30, 2022, most of which have successfully enhanced the Company’s business offerings and management team. Upon the completion of integration, acquired stores typically witness improved business performance and rapid client expansion. For example, the acquisition of Palaispa shows the Company’s acquisition power and capabilities in integration. Revenue generated from Palaispa members and franchisees increased from RMB102.4 million in 2017 to RMB185.7 million in 2021 at a CAGR of 16.0%. Those acquired stores were smoothly integrated into the Company’s network, ensuring further synergies and value creation. Going forward, Beauty Farm will continue to identify and evaluate acquisition opportunities in high-quality stores to capture growth opportunities.

The success of Beauty Farm is also attributable to its visionary and dedicated management with extensive industry experience, as well as strong shareholder support. Since 2013, CITIC PE, who has extensive experience managing and growing companies in the beauty and health management service industry, has been working closely with Beauty Farm to establish a standardized and disciplined chain business with nationwide footprint and has made important contributions to the company’s strategic formulation, merger and expansion, executive recruitment, brand and design, human resources, supply chain, marketing, finance and other aspects of management improvement.

Looking forward, Beauty Farm plans to carry out below key growth strategies to realize its development, including strategically expanding its service network and marketing channels to expand its client base and increase brand awareness; further enhancing its operational efficiency and client experience through standardization and digitalization of its system; improving client loyalty and fulfilling clients’ evolving needs by introducing new technologies, equipment and products, and expanding its service offerings; continuing to cultivate, recruit and retain high-caliber talent and strengthen its human resources management mechanism; and integrating industry resources and promoting the development of industry standards by deepening cooperation with upstream suppliers and sharing its industry and management experience.
