NYC Officials Thwart Apparent Escape Plot Involving 64 Bedsheets

New York officials said Thursday a potential jailbreak was stopped after investigators sweeping a detention center uncovered an inmate's apparent escape plot to use 64 neatly tied bed sheets to shimmy down 11 stories from his cell block to the streets.Ernest Murphy, awaiting trial on an attempted-murder charge, had the sheets stashed under a sink in his cell at the Manhattan Detention Center, Mark Peters, a commissioner of the city Department of Investigation, said. The coil stretched the length of a gymnasium nearly four times."Thankfully, it was discovered before he had an opportunity to test his skills at making a getaway," Peters said. "And so the city was spared the potential spectacle of joining the state for the past two weeks in a manhunt for escaped inmates."Peters was referring to the massive manhunt for convicted murderers David Sweat and Richard Matt, who authorities believe used power tools smuggled by a worker at the Clinton Correction Facility in Dannemora to break through a wall, cut a hole through a pipe and vanish nearly two weeks ago.Murphy was arrested May 11 on a charge of promoting prison contraband. He had already been jailed on allegations he participated in a gang assault in which a man was slashed and shot. The man didn't admit to the escape plot but authorities say there was no other reason for the sheets to be there."We have all witnessed in recent weeks the serious consequences that can result when contraband is smuggled inside prison walls," Vance said.City correction officer Patricia Howard was arrested May 9 on a Harlem street in her uniform, holding a bag of contraband that included drugs, lighters and flashlights and $800, her cut of the operation, officials said. She is awaiting arraignment, and it wasn't immediately clear who represents her.Howard has been a correction officer for nearly 20 years, and investigators said she had more than 2,400 calls to inmates during her tenure and even received a thank-you note from an inmate for supporting "the jail shopping network."She walked into the jail with the contraband and then handed it over to inmate Tommy Davis, there on an attempted-murder charge, who would distribute it to other inmates, authorities said. Davis used his sister and niece to get the orders filled outside the jail, authorities said. The four were charged with crimes including promoting prison contraband, attempted sale of a controlled substance and bribery.The search of prison cells also turned up a blade, a pen with a sharpened tip, marijuana and a scale for weighing drugs, officials said. The investigation continues.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Let's Talk About the Application of Thermal Conductive Silica Gel in LED Lighting Industry
Thermal conductive silica gel sheet is a widely used thermal conductive interface material. It is in the form of sheet, high pressure shrinkage, high reliability, high temperature resistance, excellent thermal conductivity and insulation, with viscosity on the surface, simple and convenient construction. It can be die-cut and punched according to the size and shape of heating devices.Heat conductive silica gel sheet is a kind of heat conductive medium material made by calendering with silica gel as the base material and adding various auxiliary materials such as metal oxides. It is usually called heat conductive gasket, heat conductive silica gel gasket, heat conductive silicon film, soft heat conductive gasket, heat conductive silica gel pad, etc. it is specially produced for the design scheme of using the gap to transfer heat and can fill the gap, It not only completes the heat transfer between the heating part and the heat dissipation part, but also plays the roles of insulation, shock absorption and sealing. It can meet the design requirements of miniaturization and ultra-thin equipment. It is a good heat conduction filling material with manufacturability and usability, and has a wide range of thickness and Application.Led thermal conductive silicon film is mainly used between aluminum substrate and heat sink, between aluminum substrate and shell, etc. Today, we mainly introduce the successful application of thermal conductive silica gel sheet in LED industry: there are many kinds of LED lamps. For indoor LED lamps, thermal conductive silica gel sheet with relatively low thermal conductivity is generally used, which can reduce the cost of the product and meet the needs of the product itself. For some outdoor high-power LED lamps, such as street lamps, the power is much higher than other indoor lamps, In order to better heat dissipation of lamps and improve the service life of lamps, thermal conductive silica gel sheets with relatively high thermal conductivity are generally used.The inherent viscosity of the heat-conducting silica gel sheet facilitates the construction. If the customer needs the heat-conducting silica gel sheet to have strong viscosity to replace the screw fixation, he can also choose to give one-sided or double-sided adhesive backing to the heat-conducting silica gel sheet. If the heat-conducting silica gel sheet needs to lock the screw, please remember to choose the heat-conducting silica gel sheet containing glass fiber cloth, which has the properties of anti puncture and anti tear. In short, the heat conductive silica gel sheet can be customized according to customer requirements to meet customer needs. It can be die-cut and punched according to the size and shape of heating devices.
