A terrified night security guard has filmed what he believes is a ghost on his phone, after hearing strange noises coming from the changing rooms of a football stadium.
In the eerie video, shot by Raul Arguello, he walks around the deserted venue in Argentina, looking for where a loud door slamming noise is coming from.
The 32-year-old captures the moment he bravely shoves open the banging door to discover no one is in the brightly lit room below the bleachers in the Tomás Adolfo Ducó Stadium in Buenos Aires.
But as he pans his camera around the empty space, he unknowingly captures the fleeting instant a spectre quickly passes along the benches, crossing the video frame from left to right and disappearing through the wall.
At the time, the apparition appears to be invisible to the naked eye as Arguello doesn’t react to the movement.
Google has built a multibillion-dollar business out of knowing everything about its users. Now, a video produced within Google and obtained by The Verge offers a stunningly ambitious and unsettling look at how some at the company envision using that information in the future.
The video was made in late 2016 by Nick Foster, the head of design at X (formerly Google X) and a co-founder of the Near Future Laboratory. The video, shared internally within Google, imagines a future of total data collection, where Google helps nudge users into alignment with their goals, custom-prints personalized devices to collect more data, and even guides the behavior of entire populations to solve global problems like poverty and disease.
When reached for comment on the video, an X spokesperson provided the following statement to The Verge:
“We understand if this is disturbing -- it is designed to be. This is a thought-experiment by the Design team from years ago that uses a technique known as ‘speculative design’ to explore uncomfortable ideas and concepts in order to provoke discussion and debate. It’s not related to any current or future products.”
Nonetheless, in a press conference Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blasted the president for making the “animals” comment about MS-13.
Pelosi began by saying, “Some of us who are attracted to the political arena, to government and public service” believe “we are all God’s children.”
“There is a spark of divinity among every person on earth, and we all have to recognize that as we respect the dignity and worth of every person,” Pelosi continued.
The House minority leader then added: “So when the president of the United States says about undocumented immigrants, ‘These aren’t people, these are animals,’ you have to wonder, does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?”
President Donald Trump didn’t call all immigrants “animals” like the media wants you to believe. The president was specifically referring to members of the brutal MS-13 gang who are operating in and out of the U.S.
Journalists have been sharing a selectively edited clip posted by C-SPAN that only shows a short portion of the meeting about sanctuary cities that took place at the White House on Wednesday.
