A hydrofluoric leak was confirmed by the police on a Samsung plant and it is believed to cause potentially harmful effects on nearby residence. Although the Korean tech giant has denied that the leak could potentially reach the residents, the police apparently got hold of a CCTV footage and found out that the harmful acid was indeed released by the STI Service, which is a subcontractor for Samsung and thus has proven that the chemical was released on the environment.
Hydrofluoric acid can cause deep burns that are very slow to heal and could potentially react with other elements and explode, making it a potential threat to the environment and the residents near the place of the leak. Furthermore, it is just as injurious to inhale noxious hydrofluoric acid fumes.
Samsung allegedly tried to cover up the incident but injuries and deaths of workers have been reported and the tech giant was fined a measly $923.
According to the NY Times, NYPD officers are armed with guns and Android smartphones in combatting crime and promoting public safety. Over 400 phones have been distributed to help them access pertinent police data using these phones while they are on duty.
However, these phones will not be used for calling but will be used to take advantage of data connections instead. Police officers can now look up a potential suspect's information and access vehicle registrations using a smartphone application. The police app might even eventually replace police car computers because it is quicker to retrieve data using the application.
Naturally, these phones will need data plans, which will be taken out of the City's funds so that officers can now take advantage of real-time info and data to identify criminals, apprehend them and bring them to justice-all thanks to an Android police application.
