Did you spot the man quietly photobombing Donald Trump and the Pope?

Did you spot the man quietly photobombing Donald Trump and the Pope?The president's visit to the Vatican has brought the world plenty of memes, but amidst all the images of Pope Francis glaring in the presence of Donald Trump, there's one thing we all almost missed — the mysterious figure quietly lurking in the back of the photos. Image: Pool/AGF/REX/ShutterstockSEE ALSO: Pope Francis just threw some serious papal shade at Donald Trump The photobomber, as Business Insider pointed out , appears in multiple photographs taken during the very awkward encounter between the two leaders. But turns out he's not just a stranger trying to cause a ruckus for laughs — the expert photobomber plays the very necessary role of translator to the Pope. BI identified the hilarious unintentional photobomber as Monsignor Mark Miles, a man who has served as the Pope's translator for awhile now, due to the fact that the Pope speaks Spanish, Italian, French, and German, and rarely English. He even appeared in photographs with Barack Obama, though not quite in same way that induces chuckles like his peeping behind the Pope and Trump.   Image: Reynolds/Epa/REX/ShutterstockThere isn't much information about him online, spare the fact he was born in Gibraltar where he served as a Catholic priest, and later was awarded Medallion of Distinction in the country before becoming an interpreter for the Pope.  Image: Pool/AGF/REX/ShutterstockBut wow, he can lurk!  Image: Pool/AGF/REX/Shutterstock(H/T Business Insider) WATCH: Melania Trump doesn't want your pity for her 'boy-like' husband

Good service dog makes it into school yearbook right next to his human

Good service dog makes it into school yearbook right next to his humanService dogs deserve recognition for the great deeds they perform daily. To them, they aren't even great deeds. They are just ... deeds. Andrew "AJ" Schalk, a 16-year-old junior at Stafford High School in Virginia, certainly wanted to give his service dog, Alpha, the respect that was deserved for someone who has saved his life several times. So he asked his school if they'd be willing to give his dog a spot in the yearbook, and the result is adorable.  That's a GOOD dog if I've ever seen one. SEE ALSO: Inspirational golden retriever perfectly demonstrates how to get swole for the summer Just a boy and his (service) dog pic.twitter.com/uM5f9P9X3V — AJ (@t1dfighter_aj) May 18, 2017 Schalk was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2009. "The decision to get a service dog came about just to have greater control over my blood sugar and A1C, and Alpha has even saved my life on multiple occasions," Schalk said. As Schalk's service dog, Alpha's job is to alert Schalk if his blood sugar is getting too low or too high by sniffing his breath. If undetected, Schalk could be in danger. But with Alpha on the case, he has peace of mind. Andrew Schalk and his good boy, Alpha.Image: Andrew SchalkAlpha joined Schalk's family when he was four months old, and has now been with Schalk for three and a half years. Halfway through the previous school year, Schalk started bringing Alpha with him to school. "I started by bringing him once a week, then twice, and so on and so forth until he was fully acclimated," Schalk explained. Alpha is now a consistent presence at Stafford High, attending classes with Schalk every day. Image: andrew schalk"Alpha is not a distraction at all!" Schalk said. "He lays under my desk during class, and even though everyone knows he is there, everyone still pays attention to class and loves having him there." Who wouldn't love knowing that there is a dog nearby at all times? We sure wouldn't mind. Alpha is so beloved at the school, in fact, that when Schalk asked if he could be in the yearbook the request was happily granted. "I talked to a friend of mine in the yearbook club and asked of we could get Alpha into the yearbook," Schalk said. "She took it to the teacher in charge and all the teachers and administration were 100% supportive." Good boy Alpha also got himself an official student ID. Alpha clearly dressed up for picture day.Image: andrew schalk"All my classmates loved seeing Alpha in the yearbook," Schalk said. "And people that I didn't know loved the surprise of having a service dog in the yearbook." Schalk, a junior, has one more year of high school left, and that means Alpha gets to make another yearbook cameo.  "I for sure plan on having him in the yearbook next year as well," Schalk confirmed.

How Apple might avoid that ugly iPhone 8 design that we all hate

How Apple might avoid that ugly iPhone 8 design that we all hate

It’s a brand new day, which means we have to deal with not one but multiple new iPhone 8 rumors, including one that puts an interesting twist on the new phone's design. Buried in a series of leaks, a tweet indicates the iPhone 8 will have the great design we expect — the one that doesn’t involve hunting for the Touch ID sensor on the back. More importantly, we may have an indication of exactly how Apple will accomplish it.

Twitter user Benjamin Geskin on Wednesday tweeted a bunch of leaks he found on various Chinese forums, including pictures and videos of an iPhone 8 dummy unit, and a new schematic of the handset.

https://twitter.com/VenyaGeskin1/status/867053266013745158

We have no way of confirming that what he posts is accurate, and he doesn't always link the sites where he finds his images and info. But Geskin obviously gets his data from various sites around the web, and many of these rumors seem to be rooted in reality. A few hours ago, Geskin said on Twitter that the iPhone 8 will feature 3D scanning tech but no iris sensor, which is exactly what we're expecting. He also added an interesting detail about the screen: “The fingerprint scanner is all around the screen,” he said.

That’s certainly exciting because, if accurate, it means the Touch ID sensor will be placed on the front side of the handset, not the back.

https://twitter.com/VenyaGeskin1/status/867058405827121155

But is it really possible? Yes, it is, and Apple has long been researching the technology that could make it happen. Before you start coming up with jokes about how you’d unlock the phone by just holding it, you should know this isn’t your regular touch-based fingerprint sensing technology.

Rather than a sensor like the ones found in all iPhones since the iPhone 5s, the iPhone 8 might sport a fingerprint reader that’s based on acoustics. Check out the following image:

In this patent application, Apple describes ways of reading a user’s fingerprint with the help of transducers placed all around the display to generate acoustic waves. The sensors would monitor the way these waves interact with objects they encounter, like the ridges of a fingerprint, and create unique signatures for each finger. The sensors could also recognize when the user is holding the device or talking on the phone, and the phone would not be unlocked.

In addition to the patent, a report in early March said that Apple created a new Touch ID sensor that uses ultrasound to read a fingerprint. Apple also has several patents describing such technology.

A draft EU negotiating paper, seen by Reuters, that will be put to London when Brexit talks begin following a national election in Britain on June 8 makes clear that suggestions from Prime Minister Theresa May's government that the Union might end up owing rather than getting money cut no ice in Brussels. The paper on principles of the financial settlement that the EU wants from London on departure in March 2019 sets no figure, and chief negotiator Michel Barnier has made clear it cannot be calculated until the end as it depends on the EU's spending.
