    Even for the Queen's second son it must have felt like the height of luxury. With its thick burgundy carpets, leather executive chairs and on-board gourmet chef, the private jet was the epitome of elite travel.  From the moment the aircraft reached its cruising altitude at 41,000ft, there was no request the ever-smiling crew would not seek to fulfil. Guests were offered dishes including Wagyu beef steak and caviar blinis washed down with vintage Cristal champagne. It was the kind of opulent pampering that VIP guests of paedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein had come to expect.  Last week, during the trial of British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, a hushed New York courtroom heard bombshell testimony from a woman known only as 'Jane' who claims she met Prince Andrew on Epstein's private jet – dubbed 'the Lolita Express' – at a time she was being sexually abused by Epstein as a teen.  Now an MoS investigation has discovered flight logs that show the Duke of York did indeed fly on Epstein's jet at least four times – and possibly many more. An MoS investigation...
    SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) – Two San Francisco supervisors joined community members on Thursday to demand that the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency bring back key two bus routes that were suspended at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and have yet to be brought back. Both the 8AX and 8BX Bayshore Express bus lines ran during peak commute hours in the morning and evening, serving primarily working-class residents, including those of color, who live in the city’s southern neighborhoods and work in places like Downtown San Francisco and Chinatown. READ MORE: Ceres Man Pleads Guilty To Operating International Cockfighting Breeding FarmWithout the two bus lines, residents in areas like Visitacion Valley, Excelsior, Portola, and Outer Mission have to take the 8-Bayshore bus to downtown and other nearby places, which is a significantly longer route than the express lines during commute hours. “We have heard from many residents from Visitacion Valley that they want the 8AX and 8BX to return during the peak commute hours and we have elevated this issue to the SFMTA leadership every week at our bi-weekly meetings,”...
    Virginia is studying extending express lanes in the 11 mile stretch from the Interstate 95/I-395 interchange in Springfield along the southern part of the Beltway, across the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, into Maryland, near National Harbor. The Virginia Department of Transportation said the study will consider the environmental effects of adding one or two express lanes, along what would be the final stretch of Beltway to add the additional lanes. Currently, 12 miles of express lanes run from Springfield to near Tysons. In the near future, construction will begin on the three-mile extension from near the Dulles Toll Road to near the American Legion Bridge and the Maryland border. The proposed lanes, known as high occupancy toll lanes — or HOT Lanes — enable vehicles with three or more occupants to ride for free. And, solo drivers or drivers with a single passenger can choose to pay a variable toll, based on keeping traffic moving at speed. “The express lanes are expected to provide additional travel choices, and to provide a key component to the overall transportation network in the region,”...

    Ghislaine Maxwell's criminal sex trafficking trial resumed Tuesday with Lawrence Paul Visoski, Jeffrey Epstein's longtime private pilot, back on the stand. Visoski, the government's first witness, testified about the layout of Epstein's New York and Paris properties. He also gave details about Epstein's private Caribbean island, Little St. James, which locals nicknamed "Pedophile Island." The pilot then testified about the Boeing 727 he used to shuttle the disgraced New York financier and his guests between 2000 and 2004, calling it a “recreational vehicle.” The plane was dubbed by the media as the "Lolita Express." Under cross examination, Visoski said he never saw underage girls on the plane performing sex acts nor did he see any of the alleged young victims without their parents. “I never saw any sexual activity, no,” Visoski told defense attorney Christian Everdell, who quizzed the pilot about the 1,000 or so flights he piloted. On Monday, Visoski told jurors he interacted with Maxwell frequently and described the relationship between the defendant and the late felon as "more personal than business."

    The first witness to give evidence in the Ghislaine Maxwell trial was the former captain of Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous ‘Lolita Express’ plane. Larry Visoski was Epstein's chief pilot and flew the pedophile financier for more than 25 years.  Asked what he had made of Epstein’s relationship to Ghislaine Maxwell, he said it was ‘more personal than business', but added: ‘I wouldn’t characterize it as romantic.’ Visoski said he had been hired in 1991 and had flown Epstein around roughly ‘every four days’. The pilot was so close to his boss that his daughter was reportedly married at Epstein’s New Mexico ranch.  The pilot captained Epstein's Boeing 727 jet - known infamously as the 'Lolita Express' - just one of several private aircraft which prosecutors believe was used to shuttle underage girls between Epstein's residences in New York and Palm Beach.  Epstein's pilot Lawrence 'Larry' Visoski Jr. took the stand Monday afternoon as the first witness in the trial.  Pictured: Visoski in the cockpit of Epstein's Gulfstream G550 - another one of his private aircraft Maxwell, 59, who is accused of procuring...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal Reserve officials in discussions earlier this month said the central bank “would not hesitate” to take appropriate actions to address inflation pressures that posed risks to the economy. In minutes released Wednesday of the Fed’s Nov. 2-3 meeting, Fed officials maintained that the spike in inflation seen this year was still likely to be transitory while acknowledging that the rise in prices had been greater than expected. The minutes covered a meeting in which the Fed voted to take the first step to roll back the massive support it has provided to an economy pushed into a recession last year after widespread lockdowns to contain the COVID virus. At the November meeting, the Fed approved reductions in the amount of Treasury bonds and mortgage backed securities it had been purchasing to put downward pressure on long-term interest rates. The committee approved reducing by $15 billion in November and another $15 billion cut in December in the $120 billion in monthly purchases of Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities it had been making. The expectation was that these...

    TOKYO (AP) — The leaders of Japan and Vietnam expressed serious concern on Wednesday about the situation in the South China Sea and any unilateral actions aimed at altering the status quo, and agreed to work together to sustain free and open sea lanes as tensions escalate in the region amid China’s rise. Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh is the first foreign leader to visit Japan for talks with new Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, who took office in October. Kishida told Chinh in his opening remarks that “Vietnam is an important partner who holds a key to achieving ‘a free and open Indo-Pacific,’” a vision aimed at countering China’s increasingly assertive territorial claims in the disputed region. He did not mention China by name. The two leaders “expressed serious concerns about the situation in the South China Sea and any unilateral attempts to change the status quo and increase tensions,” they said in a joint statement, without naming any country. They reaffirmed the importance of sustaining peace, security, safety, freedom of navigation and overflights above the South...

All lanes in both directions of the South Gap Project are now set to open nearly a year ahead of schedule. Gov. Jared Polis announced the mid-December completion date alongside Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet and Sen. John Hickenlooper, as well as several other state leaders on Monday. Construction on the 18-mile stretch of interstate between Castle Rock and Monument was originally set to be complete by November 2022. “These lifesaving safety improvements will reduce traffic and improve safety,” Polis said. “This is a major victory for people across Colorado.” (credit: CBS) Construction of the roughly $419 million project began in September 2018 to ease congestion and reduce wrecks along the narrow and highly travelled stretch of highway.

    A newly-unearthed photo shows billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged 'madam' Ghislaine Maxwell being blessed by the Pope. The image shows the former financier and his ex-partner holding a private audience with John Paul II at the Vatican almost 20 years ago. According to the Sun on Sunday, which obtained the snap, the pair are believed to have flown to Rome on Epstein's 'Lolita Express' jet for the meeting, said to have taken place in 2003. It is the same aircraft federal prosecutors in the US believe was used by Epstein to shuttle young sex trafficking victims between his sprawling homes in New York, New Mexico, Paris, the US Virgin Islands and Palm Beach, where the dead pedophile owned a waterfront mansion.  A source told the paper: 'Pictures like this show just how powerful Epstein's connections were and his ability to open almost any door. 'He managed to manipulate his way into royal palaces, the White House and the Vatican, all with Maxwell by his side.' Epstein killed himself in his jail cell while awaiting trial for a string...

    CUPERTINO (CBS SF/AP) — After resisting for years, Apple is letting some iPhone users fix their own phones, ending a practice of allowing only company-approved technicians to fiddle with its proprietary parts and software.

    Getty Cowboys QB Dak Prescott Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott continues to draw criticism stemming from his late-game rushing touchdown amid Sunday’s 43-3 blowout of the Atlanta Falcons. And the calls are coming from inside the house. During their weekly radio appearances, both Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones and vice president Stephen Jones expressed displeasure with Prescott’s decision to put himself in harm’s way for a meaningless touchdown, less than a month removed from suffering a calf strain. “I worry about it,” Jerry Jones said Tuesday, November 16 on 105.3 The Fan, via The Athletic. “We got to realize that at the end of the year what this is about is being standing. Warren Buffett one time said the hardest thing about accumulating wealth is to be there to spend it.” “Let’s don’t do that,” Stephen Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “But certainly, I mean, that’s Dak. At the end of the day, we have to protect Dak from Dak, but he’s the ultimate competitor.” This, one day after Cowboys legend Michael...

    BRASELTON, Ga. (AP) — Jim France, chairman of both NASCAR and the IMSA sports car series, mingled in the darkened paddock at Road Atlanta as a group of Brazilians cooked picanha on a pair of charcoal grills. Mike Conway, a week removed from winning the World Endurance Championship, and Pipo Derani, the night before his own run for a title, served the sliced steak on paper plates that France and everyone else ate with their hands. “This meat is terrible!” France yelled to the chefs. “I’m going to need you to pack it all up and I’ll take it up to my bus and throw it out for you.” France is also the owner of Action Express Racing, which went to the Petit Le Mans outside Atlanta with two headline-making cars. The No. 31 Whelen Engineering Cadillac had trailed in the standings since rival Wayne Taylor Racing won the season-opening 24 Hours at Daytona, but three wins in five races had pulled Felipe Nasr and Derani within 19 points heading into the title-deciding 10-hour race over the...

    Some Washington Republicans gave Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee grudging respect Wednesday for his appointment of state Sen. Steve Hobbs to fill the coming secretary of state vacancy. “The Governor made a choice that seems designed to remove an opponent of his policies from the Legislature,” state House Minority Leader J.T. Wilcox told The Center Square. Wilcox predicted that the Hobbs, D-Lake Stevens, pick “also means that one or possibly two seats in the swing 44th [legislative district] will be essentially open in the '22 election.” “Considering that Sen. Hobbs, as Senate Transportation Chair, has been a roadblock to Inslee’s radical scheme for higher transportation taxes, you could say that it was a master political move on Inslee’s part to get rid of Hobbs,” said Luanne Van Werven, a former state representative from Whatcom County and former acting head of the state GOP. “Anything less than a far-left progressive is not welcome in the modern day Democratic Party.” Both Wilcox and Van Werven had previously called on Inslee to appoint a Republican to replace Kim Wyman, the only Republican statewide elected...

    Pizza Express has gently poked fun at Hollywood star Eva Longoria for once gushing to Jack Whitehall that the best Italian food she had ever had was at one of their restaurants in Cardiff.  The 46-year-old American actress, who writes cookbooks and opened an LA diner which has permanently closed, praised the branch while in Wales filming BBC comedy series Decline and Fall in 2017. Speaking about his co-star on food critic Jay Rayner's Out To Lunch podcast, Whitehall, 33, claimed Longoria was completely unaware that Pizza Express is a popular restaurant chain in the UK.  Tweeting a link to the podcast yesterday, Pizza Express said: 'Listen to this brilliant podcast from ⁦@jayrayner1⁩ and, 30 minutes in, ⁦@jackwhitehall⁩ reveals the name of what Eva Longoria considers one of the best Italian restaurants in the world. It's a small family-run place in Cardiff.' The account finished the tweet with a winking emoji.  Whitehall told Rayner: 'She said, ''Oh God, I found the most in­c­redible little Italian last night.

    Nearly a dozen Republican lawmakers are expressing their concern about the impending COVID-19 vaccination deadline for Department of Defense contractors. The members of Congress addressed their concerns in an Oct. 22 letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and President Joe Biden , in which they pleaded for a reversal amid fear that the Dec. 8 deadline will “inevitably compromise national security for decades.” “Those who adamantly refuse the vaccine will accept termination,” the 11 lawmakers wrote . “We will lose critical experience in skilled labor. We will lose opportunities for mentorship and on-the-job training from veteran craftsmen. In the long-term, we will miss quality control standards. We will face endemic cost overruns and rework as decades of lessons are not passed to the next generation.” 'NO ONE TAKES AMERICA SERIOUSLY RIGHT NOW': VETERAN RUNNING FOR CONGRESS TARGETS AFGHANISTAN WITHDRAWAL All but one of the lawmakers who signed the letter are members of the House Armed Services Committee .

    Q: In your response about improvements on BART, your answer focused on escalators. As someone who occasionally uses BART, I would claim that escalators, or the lack of them, is not one of their biggest issues. For some with mobility issues, escalators might be important, but for the vast majority of riders, getting the urine smell dealt with and getting the restrooms functional should be a lot higher up on BART’s list of priorities. Rider safety should be paramount. The convenience of escalators should not have been the first thing dealt with. Poll readers to see what they think that BART should focus on first. John Schultheis, Sparks, NV A: BART is spending more time cleaning restrooms and cars, but working escalators are important for both safety and handling large numbers of riders at peak times. The suggestion box is open as to what  BART needs to work on most. Q:  I’m not advocating unsafe speeding in the express lane on Interstate 880, but you might point out that slower drivers have responsibilities, as well. The driver’s handbook (page 69)...

In the United States, more and more employers are now requiring their employees to be vaccinated, and demands for exemptions on religious grounds are growing alarmingly in some regions. In Oregon, at least 11% of government employees have such exemptions, according to the latest figures released by the government.

Therefore, some decided to reject abortion as it was against their beliefs,” explains Monica Gandhi, a medical specialist in infectious diseases at the university. California in San Francisco. If cell lines formed from old embryonic cells produced in the laboratory in the 1970s, The vaccine was used during the growth phase and there were virtually no embryonic cells in the vials. “Religion is used as an excuse for some people not to be vaccinated,”...

    (CNN)Democrats are once again on track to miss a self-imposed deadline to reach a deal on President Joe Biden's sweeping social safety net plan by the end of the week, as progressive Democrats confront the reality that many of their top priorities are going to be scrapped in a last-minute round of negotiation.Talks now are almost squarely focused on whether the White House can win over key moderate Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, leaving little room for liberals to exert influence on the process.Progressives flexed their muscles and forced party leaders to delay a House vote last month on a bipartisan infrastructure bill as they insisted the social spending bill not be left behind.

Democratic leaders have been pushing for a deal this week in the hopes of holding a...
    Q: I have had the opportunity to use the express lanes on Interstate 880 several times over the past month, and really appreciate them. But now I have a question. What is the speed limit for the express lane? It seems that everyone does at least 75 mph in the express lane. If you drive slower, you get aggressively tailgated, and you cannot move over because of the double white line and slower traffic to your right. Adele Ho, Richmond A: The speed limit is 65 mph, but you and I both know that some drivers go much faster than that, and take risks by crossing the double white lines. Q: The double white lines on I-880 give a false sense of security to express lane drivers zooming along at 60 mph with traffic almost halted in the next lane, and often with no space between the express lane and the median divider. This risks a bad wreck whenever anyone jumps the double-whites into the fast lane. I’ve never once driven 880 without seeing multiple drivers cross these double-white...
