INTERCEPT TM Technology is pleased to introduce a new user of our Intercept Mineral Preservation System (IMPS): Freeport-McMoRan, a Phoenix-based natural resource company.

IMPS, our state-of-the-art system, enables long-term preservation of core mineral samples. In the mining industry, core samples are used to prospect sites for new mine locations, and, therefore, accuracy of the sample reports is absolutely essential to ensure optimum business operations. By using IMPS, testing core samples involves unsealing and resealing our Intercept bags. (Previous sample storage methods were time-consuming, expensive, and often inaccurate.) Mineral samples are protected from corrosive gasses and other elements that can damage and hinder the accuracy of the core samples.

rhino milk

Did you know that rhino milk is pink? It is almost the same as regular milk besides the color and it is also high in calories, about 500 per cup as compared to cow milk which has about 150 per cup of whole milk, or about 90 that is common in milk popular with humans. That makes sense as a baby rhino would need more calories than a baby cow. The pink is the result of a secretion that rhinos have, sometimes known as blood sweat; this actually is not sweat at all. These secretions act as a sort of a natural sunscreen that protects the rhino’s skin while it is not in water. This secretion is red so when mixed with white milk you get pink.

Zebras have stripes unlike any other species. Humans haven’t been able to discern why for hundreds of years. I have been around zebras and have heard many theories, from guides, not from the zebras. One posed that the different colors created high and low pressures based on the heat they were absorbing and reflecting causing convection and air movement to keep them cool. Another posed that the stripes confused predators, because many predators have black and white vision, and a herd of zebra running would make it very hard for their eyes to pick out individual targets, essentially a camouflage due to the herding tendency of this animal. Both of these make sense to me, and I believe would make sense to anyone who has experienced a hot day or has watched a TV’s black and white static. But neither of these theories has been able to be proven.
