In a previous post we explained how permafrost is the way of nature's keeping the temperature constantly low. Permafrost has helped scientists find all kinds of specimens from plants, animals and all the way to viruses, by keeping them in 'tip-top' shape for thousands of years. Working in the north east of Siberia, researchers recently found the most complete Bison mummy with all of its organs still intact and in a sleeping position which revealed that it probably died from starvation by the end of the ice age. This new work was presented at the annual Society of Vertebrate Paleontology meeting in November 2014 in Berlin and will be published in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.

Press Release: Z-SC1 Corp Announces Opening of Warehouse on west coast US. Z-SCI Biomedical LLC. New US division - Z-SC1 Announces New Division & Warehouse Montreal Canada, March 16, 2015 – Z-SC1 Corp, the world’s leading manufacturing of ULT Freezer that changed the world of Cryo-conservation with its TWINCORE technology, announced the opening of its new US based division Z-SCI BIOMEDICAL LLC and new warehouse on the west coast. Glenn Adams has been promoted to the newly created role of V.P General Manager for the US. These changes mark a significant shift in Z-SC1 Corp’s business operation and will be instrumental in the enhancement of its US distribution strategy to better serve its US partners & distributors. The new warehouse will provide guaranteed next-day shipping for Twincore ULTs to most of the west coast. The new warehouse will also result in reduced freight expenses for Z-SCI’s Western customers who until now been served by the distributor’s warehouses in Pennsylvania and from Canada. Z-SCI will also benefit from increased logistical and operational efficiencies such as reduced inbound freight expenses. “We changed the world with the Twincore freezer technology,” said Jean Fallacara, CEO “but now we have to insure that products are readily available coast to coast in the US.” “We plan on gradually ramping up our distribution activities out of our new California based office and warehouse and ultimately, we anticipate that a substantial portion of our U.S.-based orders will ship out of that location.”
Challenges are fun. They encourage us to deliver. Living in a 'challenge-oriented' philosophy will lead to a culture of experimentation in which we are requested to present the results which will sometimes lead to great ideas or bold failures. But then you get the chance to have a new challenge and experiment again, push your limits and in the end, grow. It doesn't matter if you win or loose a challenge. What matters is to deliver. When you learn to deliver without postponing you will understand that major achievements come from doing. Failing or winning will just show you what to do more and what to do less. We want to share a couple of challenges: 1. Maxim & Katia Mezentsev created this beautiful video of freezing nature. Some challenges do not come from elsewhere but from our necessity of moving away from the status quo. These kind of challenges will help you build your identity, your character. We love this video because, like we do, it thrives with the fact of an object in the freezing process. It's worth the look, the video lasts less than one minute and it was selected as a 'Vimeo Staff Picked'. Frozen from kveten on Vimeo. 2. The second challenge was one that our CEO, Jean Fallacara, decided to take : 'RECOVERY TESTING from a 2min Door Opening'. He was very pleased when he received the results from the engineering team. Please read the post he wrote about it here. Challenges make us grow and define ourselves. We will continue delivering nice challenges we stumble upon with. We hope you enjoy as much as we do.
