Cover of the #1 bestseller OBSERVER by Robert Lanza and Nancy Kress
NEW YORK, March 31, 2023 (Newswire.com) - The Story Plant announced today that OBSERVER by Robert Lanza, one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People for his pioneering work in stem cell research, and Nancy Kress, whose novels have won multiple Hugo and Nebula awards, was the #1 overall top bestseller on Barnes & Noble in ebooks as well as being a #1 Amazon bestseller in numerous categories (and in the top 20 for all fiction and nonfiction ebooks sold in the United States).
OBSERVER also received prestigious "starred reviews" from both Kirkus Reviews and Publishers Weekly, calling it "Mind-bending… A thought-provoking fictional examination of big ideas" and a "brilliant Crichtonesque thriller," respectively.
OBSERVER is a tour de force collaboration that combines Lanza's work at the forefront of science and technology and Kress's talent for crafting critically acclaimed novels. The plot centers on Caro Soames-Watkins, a talented young neurosurgeon whose career has been upended by controversy. Forced to accept a job at a mysterious medical facility and tasked with conducting dubious experiments into the nature of consciousness, reality, and life after death, she finds a lot more than she bargained for, including murder, love, and cutting-edge science that tests her understanding of life itself.
Publisher Lou Aronica, legendary editor of such science fiction greats as Ray Bradbury and Arthur C. Clarke, says, "I am delighted that so many people have embraced this novel, which is both a great reading experience and profoundly illuminating. I'm thrilled to see it get the audience it deserves."
Hailed by Rhonda Byrne, #1 New York Times bestselling author, as "Brilliant … A riveting and moving story" and by Kim Stanley Robinson, New York Times bestselling author, as "a startling, fascinating novel." Robin Cook, #1 New York Times bestselling author, called OBSERVER "a thrilling story you won't soon forget."

Jiaherb’s Rhodiola Rosea Receives CITES Certification
In the field harvesting Rhodiola Rosea Roots
PINE BROOK, N.J., March 31, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Jiaherb, Inc. announced today that it received its Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) certification for its rhodiola rosea ingredient. Jiaherb is a leading manufacturer of herbal extracts and natural ingredients whose mission is to provide the highest-quality ingredients while offering superior customer service.
CITES protects and regulates plants in international trade so that the commercial demand in the marketplace does not threaten their survival in the wild. CITES certification of rhodiola rosea ensures the ingredient is sustainably traded as well as regulated with positive impacts on the population of its species.
As a premier manufacturer of natural ingredients, Jiaherb focuses its sustainability efforts through social, economic, and environmental means while guaranteeing customers consistent efficacy and efficiency through traceability 100% of the time. At the forefront of Jiaherb's sustainability efforts, the ingredient supplier adopted rhodiola rosea through the Adopt-an-Herb Program with the American Botanical Council (ABC) in 2017. This effort has allowed the company to stay current with the scientific and clinical research of the ingredient as well as develop a sustainable future to protect rhodiola rosea from overharvesting. As the demand for rhodiola rosea continues to grow in the marketplace, adding a CITES certification protects the herb and strengthens Jiaherb's sustainability efforts as an ingredient supplier.
Jiaherb's cultivates rhodiola rosea to make the product more sustainable and only harvests roots which are more than five years old. Quality and reliable sourcing is a top priority for the company. The company ensures they are using the best quality rhodiola rosea which has more potency and fewer contaminants such as heavy metals and pesticides.
"Having our CITES certification ensures Jiaherb's responsible sourcing and sustainability efforts of rhodiola rosea and allows us to continue to deliver only the very best quality of the ingredient to our customers," says Chris Oesterheld, Executive Vice President.
This year, in its continuing sustainability efforts, Jiaherb supported the Nature Conservancy, which tackles climate change, protects lands and water, provides food and water, and builds healthy cities.
"Our sustainability efforts and environmental and social responsibility continue to be a top priority for our company. Adding CITES certification to our growing list of sustainability efforts, including adopting rhodiola rosea with the American Botanical Council and supporting the Nature Conservancy, have become part of the core strategy of our company," says Scott Chen, President.
Jiaherb, Inc. manufactures herbal extracts and powders, natural sweeteners, fruit juice and vegetable powders, spices, vitamins, and much more. The company is an NSF Certified, GMP-compliant manufacturer of natural ingredients and herbal extracts that are used in the nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and food and beverage industries.
