Kimbell Art Museum To Unveil Renzo Piano Addition In November

leave a comment »

FORT WORTH, Texas, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Renzo Piano’s highly anticipated expansion of Louis I. Kahn’s Kimbell Art Museum will open to the public on Wednesday, November 27, 2013. The Renzo Piano Building Workshop (RPBW) of Genoa/Paris/New York collaborated with Kendall/Heaton Associates of Houston on the new building.

An expression of simplicity—glass, concrete and wood—Piano’s light, colonnaded, post-and-beam pavilion stands some 65 yards to the west of Kahn’s solid, vaulted museum, graciously acknowledging the 1972 landmark by mirroring its three bays, colonnades, elevation, emphasis on natural light, and use of concrete as a primary material.

Atop the front structure of the two-part building, thin layers of glass and steel louvers seem to hover above enormous wooden beams, which in turn appear to float above long expanses of concrete and glass walls. This effect of weightlessness is all the more striking in counterpoint to the pavilion’s low-slung proportions and overhanging eaves.

The Kimbell is renowned for a permanent collection of masterpieces ranging from ancient to modern times. While it is expected that its collection of European art will continue to occupy the Kahn building, special exhibitions and works from the museum’s superb Precolumbian, African and Asian collections will be showcased in two large, elegant galleries in the front structure of the Piano pavilion. Light-sensitive works will be displayed in a specially designed gallery in the rear portion of the building, which is tucked under a green roof.

“An awesome challenge” is how Piano has described the effort to complement Kahn’s masterpiece. Kimbell leadership believed that if any architect were up to the task, it was Renzo Piano, who worked for a time in Kahn’s office as a young man and had already designed three great museum buildings in Texas: the Menil Collection and Cy Twombly Gallery in Houston and the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas.

Piano’s best-known early museum project is the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, which he designed with Richard Rogers. Elsewhere in Europe, he is also celebrated for the Beyeler Museum in Basel and the Klee Museum in Bern. Last summer, the Renzo Piano Building Workshop received acclaim for The Shard in London—Europe’s tallest building.

Camera360 Hits 100 Million Users Worldwide

leave a comment »

CHENGDU, China, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Camera360, one of the world’s most popular camera apps for smart phones, announced today that it has become the first mobile photography app to pass 100 million global users, with 40 percent of those users coming from overseas.

According to statistics released by the Tencent Mobile Internet Design Center at the end of 2012, Camera360 occupied the largest share of third party photography apps, despite the fierce competition in this app category.

After reaching this major milestone, Camera360 will now aim to turn itself from a pure tool app into a multi-service provider to meet growing consumer demands.

In late 2012, Camera360 launched the beta version of its Cloud service, and has already seen more than 240 million photos uploaded to the Cloud platform since launch. “The latest version of Camera360 Cloud is currently under development and we believe its release will see further rapid growth to Camera360’s already huge user base,” said Xu Hao, CEO of PinGuo Inc.

With Camera360’s Cloud becoming established, Camera360 now provides a one-stop solution for mobile users’ photo and imaging needs and, with its series of extension services, there are likely some very profitable benefits.

Camera360’s Effects mode is seen as the app’s greatest feature by its 100 million users. In order to share the best with others, Camera360 decided to open its Effects SDK to both indie developers and other companies at the end of 2012, completely free of charge. With the Camera360 Effects SDK in hand, vendors can now save on development costs and get closer to a final release of their products. Many domestic giants of social communication apps, such as Tencent, Weibo, Renren and Kaixin, have all used the Camera360 SDK. Camera360 is now even in talks with a number of smart phone manufacturers to integrate the Camera360 SDK into the stock camera, in order to make their handsets stand out from the crowd. With this open spirit of sharing, Camera360 is getting even more in return.

Such rapid growth always brings new challenges, such as how to optimize the user experience to increase user retention, how to maximize future earnings and how to market future products. Camera360 is ready to face all these challenges, and more. After two years of remarkable innovation, Camera360 is dedicated to continue pushing the boundaries, whether at its product level or for its business model.

About Camera360

Camera360 is a worldwide leader in photo applications on iPhone and Android devices. Based in Chengdu, China, and founded by a team with over twenty years experience in digital image processing and research, Camera360 has already achieved global recognition and won numerous awards, including at the 2011 PC World Global Tech Forum. Today, Camera360 boasts over 100 million global users, with nearly half of its user base coming from outside of China. The creators of Camera360 have also launched Movie360, an award-winning video recording application, and cloud.camera360.com, a cloud-based service platform that allows users to easily upload, manage and share photos and other multimedia. Since its launch in September 2012, the cloud platform has already seen over 240 million photos uploaded from around the world and is quickly becoming a leader in multimedia cloud storage.

Soobest’s Tips for Integrated Marketing via Social Media

leave a comment »

NEW YORK, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Here is a brief talk on how to use social media to do integrated marketing from B2C SooBest, an online retailer with a wide range of products such as fashionable women’s clothing, men’s clothing, digital watches, charm jewelry, etc.

Many companies believe that creating an official account to publish content on social media and interact with fans through creative activities helps attract attention and is a good use of social media. In fact, these are only the most fundamental things, and are not a real use of social media’s advantages. True social media operation requires investments of time, money, energy and other resources, not necessarily less than the investment in traditional media. The most important thing is that enterprises must recognize that social media is a systematic strategy that calls for brand positioning, direction, core concepts, etc. in order to achieve real social marketing effectiveness.

As with any marketing promotions, social media marketing requires companies to review their performance first: How are other people talking about you? What do your customers care about? What are your customers saying? What are your competitors doing and what will they not do? How do you make your brand stand out in social media? Frankly put, enterprises need to learn to listen instead of talking first. Learn what consumers want, rather than imposing your own ideas on consumers.

Once ready to listen, do a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) analysis, or even a series of consumer insights to plant their own brands in social media. For example, Starbucks’s main battlefield is their MyStarbucksIdea website, followed by Facebook, Twitter etc. IKEA wouldn’t directly compete with expensive furniture companies, but chooses instead to sell middle-priced products and provide a good user experience.

Another key point is consistency in marketing strategy. This requires strategic integration work with personnel. Enterprises cannot do one thing on one platform, and something else on another. Businesses must use different platform features to make contact with different people while speaking with a unified voice to express the uniqueness of the brand, and then they can reap the best results.

One more key point is to clearly express the core brand via one’s social media strategy. No matter what you want your brand to replace, you should clearly express and show it in social media communications activities. You can express and show not only content, but also your interactive attitude and the relevance of creative activities.

To achieve communication value from social media is not an easy thing. The importance of social media marketing goes even beyond traditional media marketing, because it requires an enterprise to establish an honest, transparent, humble personality, so that it can be truly appreciated and its good reputation can be spread by word of mouth. Are you ready for social media marketing?

Far East Energy Announces Shouyang Block Drilling Update

leave a comment »

HOUSTON, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Far East Energy Corporation (OTCBB:FEEC) today announced the following coalbed methane (CBM) drilling progress on its Shouyang Block, located in Shanxi Province, Peoples Republic of China (PRC).

A summary of the key developments through May 5, 2013 includes:

  • Wells spudded in 2013: 13 (7 production wells and 6 appraisal wells)
  • Wells that have reached total depth in 2013: 4  (3 production wells and 1 appraisal well, with 1 of these spudded in 2012)
  • Wells drilling at present: 10 (4 production wells and 6 appraisal wells)
  • Wells in line for fracturing: 10 (9 production wells and 1 appraisal well; fracing program planned for May/June)
  • Well locations where pads have recently been constructed or are under construction prior to rigging up: 9
  • In addition, the company has completed its review of requested technical analyses commissioned from third party engineering firms to ascertain both optimal drilling locations for this year’s drilling program, as well as optimal frac designs.  Results are being incorporated in the drilling and completion program.

Rapid Progress of Program

Since the last Operations Update call on April 18, 2013, the number of wells being drilled has increased from five to ten wells, and two of the five wells that were drilling 17 days ago have now reached total depth and finished drilling.  The two rigs that were drilling these recently completed wells have moved or are now moving to new locations; and thus twelve rigs will soon be drilling (10 drilling now, plus these 2 existing rigs moved/moving to new locations), representing an increase of seven rigs over and above the five rigs that were drilling on April 18.  Additionally, new pads for drilling are being constructed on a continuous basis, with nine either currently awaiting rigs, or being completed, and more to be commenced in the near future. It is believed that nine additional rigs will be drilling in the next 15 days, bringing the total at that time to twenty-one.

“The 2013 Drilling program is close to hitting full stride now, after a deliberate slowing of the early pace to allow time for both internal and external analysis to optimize well location, frac design, cementing process and quality, and well spacing,” commented Mike McElwrath, President and CEO of Far East Energy.  “We are drilling at a more rapid pace than ever before, with the advantage of more data and analysis than heretofore available, and currently target drilling approximately 70 new production wells this year and 25 or more appraisal wells.”  

Far East Energy Corporation

Based in Houston, Texas, with offices in Beijing, and Taiyuan City, China, Far East Energy Corporation is focused on coalbed methane exploration and development in China.

Statements contained in this press release that state the intentions, hopes, estimates, beliefs, anticipations, expectations or predictions of the future of Far East Energy Corporation and its management are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. It is important to note that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially from those projected in such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in such forward-looking statements include: the preliminary nature of well data, including permeability and gas content; there can be no assurance as to the volume of gas that is ultimately produced or sold from our wells; the fracture stimulation and drilling programs may not be successful in increasing gas volumes; due to limitations under Chinese law, we may have only limited rights to enforce the gas sales agreement between Shanxi Province Guoxin Energy Development Group Limited and China United Coalbed Methane Corporation, to which we are an express beneficiary; additional wells may not be drilled, or if drilled may not be timely; additional pipelines and gathering systems needed to transport our gas may not be constructed, or if constructed may not be timely, or their routes may differ from those anticipated; the pipeline and local distribution/compressed natural gas companies may decline to purchase or take our gas, or we may not be able to enforce our rights under definitive agreements with pipelines; conflicts with coal mining operations or coordination of our exploration and production activities with mining activities could adversely impact or add significant costs to our operations; our lack of operating history; limited and potentially inadequate management of our cash resources; risk and uncertainties associated with exploration, development and production of coalbed methane; our inability to extract or sell all or a substantial portion of our reserves and other resources; we may not satisfy requirements for listing our securities on a securities exchange; expropriation and other risks associated with foreign operations; disruptions in capital markets affecting fundraising; matters affecting the energy industry generally; lack of availability of oil and gas field goods and services; environmental risks; drilling and production risks; changes in laws or regulations affecting our operations, as well as other risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
