Cibuls took a picture of the monitor and said at first she thought her eyes were playing tricks on her and “tried to ignore it” before getting “so freaking out” she couldn’t sleep.
In a Facebook post, where Cibuls shared an image of the spooky sighting, she wrote that she tried “creeping in[to her son’s room] with a flashlight” to check out what was staring back at her on the video monitor.
“I kept opening my eyes to check to make sure the ‘ghost’ wasn’t moving. Then when I would start to finally relax, my son would roll over and I’d be on high alert again.”
“I didn’t see anything unusual in the crib at all. I was trying to feel around to see if there was any wetness – we thought there might be some drool on the sheet – but I didn’t feel any,” she told Yahoo Lifestyle UK.
“I told myself maybe it was just a stain on the sheet and left the room. I probably went in there about three more times throughout the night,” she added.
To make matters worse, Cibuls said her husband was working that night, which scared her even more, as she was alone with her children in the house.
“I kept opening my eyes to check to make sure the ‘ghost’ wasn’t moving. Then when I would start to finally relax, my son would roll over and I’d be on high alert again. Every time I checked on him, though, he seemed completely fine,” she told the outlet.
Once morning came, Cibuls went into the room to get to the bottom of the creepy apparition.
“It turns out my husband just forgot to put the mattress protector on when he changed the sheets,” she wrote on Facebook, revealing a large picture of a baby’s face on a price tag attached to the mattress. The face – which is what Cibuls saw on the camera – is usually covered by the mattress protector, which goes under the sheet.
Cibuls said when she told her husband what happened “he just laughed,” noting he had changed the sheets after their son had woken up “crying and wet” and had forgotten to put the mattress protector back on.
“I could kill him,” she wrote on Facebook, along with cry-laughing emoji.
The hilarious story went viral on the social media platform, with nearly 500,000 reactions as of Monday afternoon.
Most of the 300,000 commenters added that they were laughing along with Cibuls, and admitted that they too would have found the situation creepy if they were in her place.
“I’m screaming,” one person wrote.
“That looks so creepy,” another commented.
Many others simply responded “lol.”
DOJ, IRS Investigating Crypto Exchange Binance
Binance Holdings Ltd. is facing a federal investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice and the Internal Revenue Service, Bloomberg reported Thursday.
Officials specializing in tax and money-laundering investigations are probing the world’s largest crypto exchange, according to the report.
Binance operates a sprawling global empire of crypto trading, including derivatives, which are essentially barred from the U.S. market. The Binance brand has attempted to project itself as above-board through recent regulatory hires including former U.S. senator Max Baucus. Former banking regulator Brian Brooks was installed as CEO of Binance’s U.S. affiliate last month.
“We take our legal obligations very seriously and engage with regulators and law enforcement in a collaborative fashion,” a Binance spokesperson said in a statement. “We have worked hard to build a robust compliance program that incorporates anti-money laundering principles and tools used by financial institutions to detect and address suspicious activity.”
She declined to comment on the reported investigation.
Binance CEO “CZ” Changpeng Zhao commented on the Bloomberg article in a tweet:
The CDC director just gave us a dark coronavirus warning
The latest coronavirus update for the US through mid-morning on Thursday shows that, according to the latest data collected by the team at Johns Hopkins University, more than 28.7 million coronavirus cases have been reported in the US since the start of the pandemic. Additionally, the coronavirus death toll in the US was approaching 519,000 as of the time of this writing.
Nevertheless, two states created an uproar this week when both states (Texas and Mississippi) announced their decision to pull back restrictions and mandates imposed during the pandemic, like max capacity requirements for businesses and statewide face mask rules. President Biden criticized these moves as the product of “Neanderthal thinking,” while CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky actually went farther than that — warning during a White House press briefing this week that the US could lose all of the progress made thus far as a result of the spread of more transmissible coronavirus variants. Spread that would be helped even more by states like these and others that join them pulling back on their coronavirus-related public safety measures too soon.
“Please hear me clearly,” Dr. Walensky said. “At this level of cases with variants spreading, we stand to completely lose the hard-earned ground we have gained. These variants are a very real threat to our people and to our progress. Now is not the time to relax the critical safeguards that we know could stop the spread of COVID-19 in our communities, not when we are so close.”
While there has been a degree of promising news coverage in recent days and weeks, make no mistake: We’re still very much in the middle of a dangerous pandemic. COVID-19 cases, as well as related deaths, are up about 2% compared to last week — and we’re now averaging around 67,000 coronavirus cases per day, along with some 2,000 deaths each day.
Along these lines, and related to the Texas and Mississippi news, former FDA commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb had an important insight to share in a CNBC interview this week — namely, that governments and public health experts need to start talking to people about the end of the pandemic and how we get there. Else, we’ll see more people go down this same road, either by feeling like things are hopeless or prematurely easing up on safety measures. “If we continue to be very prescriptive and not give people a realistic vision for a better future, they’re going to start to ignore the public health guidance,” Gottlieb said.
Walensky continued her remarks by noting that an average of less than 70,000 coronavirus cases a day seems good compared to where we were a few months ago. But we “cannot be resigned” to that.
“Please stay strong in your conviction, continue wearing your well-fitted mask and taking the other public health prevention actions that we know work,” she said. “Ultimately, vaccination is what will bring us out of this pandemic. To get there, we need to vaccinate many more people.”
