Our Neighbors, Through the Eyes of a World Soccer Fan

Posted by Elaine Spitz on Jul 12, 2014 10:13:00 AM

Once every few years the whole world joins together around a single event. The Olympics do it to an extent, but there’s no other event quite like the World Cup. TV statistics help us get a handle on this. In the USA an estimated 111 million people watched this year’s Super Bowl (this may be thrown off a bit by viewing parties, for both the game and commercials). The Chinese Olympics drew a total of 3.6 billion viewers. The 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa drew a total of 3.2 billion viewers, marking a 10% rise in viewership over the 2006 world cup. Brazil, at 200 million residents, is the largest country to host a World Cup, since the USA hosted in 1996. I understand that the Olympics and World Cup are both drawn- out spectacles with many individual games, but I anticipate, given the worldwide infatuation with soccer, or futbol, that this year’s final will be the most watched event in history, topping the Beijing Opening Ceremonies as listed by official ratings.

The Creative Content Guy

Posted by Joe Spitz on Apr 18, 2014 2:33:00 PM

Perhaps you’ve noticed the increased quality and style in Liberty Packaging’s shared content over the last year. This improvement can be attributed to our newest creative and tech staffer, Greg Spitz.  Certainly, his last two videos “Corrosion - Its Natural” and “ESD and Static - Fun With Science” are unique and engaging.  Greg took on two very complex subjects which continue to be studied in great detail by generations of scientists, engineers, and other specialists. There are associations, companies such as Liberty Packaging, seminars, white papers, trade shows and other groups specifically geared to the study and management of corrosion and ESD.  Greg stepped back to view the big picture on these issues and simplified them for two three-minute videos that just make sense. We urge you to take a look.

Intercept Packaging - Joe's Creative Uses at Home - Paint Cans

Posted by Joe Spitz on Apr 16, 2014 11:19:00 AM

Oh, paints! One of my pet peeves as a homeowner is when it comes time to use the paints for touch-up after they’ve been stored for a time, they are a mess and unusable (see gunky rusty metal paint can at left compared to nice clean paint can after storage in Intercept packaging). The cans become rusty and cruddy, the paint inside and thick, gunky, with rust particles from the can floating through it. The issue for me then becomes the disposal of up to a half gallon of bad paint. The oil-based paints are deposited at the town’s hazardous waste drop-off, collected once a year, which is fine if I am available on that day. Latex paints are supposed to be dried out and placed in the general trash...I don’t like that. Drying out paint in the can is an unrealistic chore. Disposing of paint in the general trash pickup just doesn’t feel right.

Giving Back

Posted by Elaine Spitz on Apr 15, 2014 11:06:00 AM

Intercept Technology requires a high level of service and response for our customers’ needs. In doing so we get very involved with our customers and we carry that mentality to our suppliers, distributers, and peers. I have been a Team Captain for a St. Baldrick’s event in Washington D.C. for the last two years. Both of these events have been successful in the area of fundraising, over $35,000 each time going to childhood cancer research, and in raising awareness. Each participant shaves his/her head to emulate cancer patients. This cause is important to me because my niece has recently completed a 2+ year treatment for Philadelphia Chromosome Leukemia. Each year I have traveled to the event, participated, and fundraised, and returned home with less hair!

20 Definitions on Electrostatic Discharge - ESD Month- Part 2

Posted by Joe Spitz on Feb 18, 2014 2:29:00 PM

Even if you are an electrical engineer and these are elementary terms from your high school and college days, it may be fruitful to review their meanings and logic to see if you currently have sufficient packaging to protect your company’s products and assets.
