(CNN)The federal indictment against two prison guards on duty the night Jeffrey Epstein died provides a detailed breakdown of what was going on in the final hours of his life. Prosecutors say the guards, Tova Noel and Michael Thomas, repeatedly failed to check on Epstein as required and then filed false forms saying they had. The guards pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy and filing false documents in Manhattan federal court on Tuesday and were released on bail packages that include a $100,000 bond for each defendant. Epstein's attorneys declined to comment on the indictment. The timeline below is based on public information, criminal court hearings and the federal indictment, which itself is based on internal prison surveillance video, prison records, interviews with those involved and other sources. Incidents that allegedly occurred in the jail are based on the indictment.

Coast guard form 1258
Yerba Buena Island, the rocky outcropping that rises from the bay next to Treasure Island, is home to a Coast Guard station, a marina, 145 species of plants and 21 types of birds. Soon it will also be home to a species that until now has not inhabited the island: the San Francisco condominium owner. Developer Wilson Meany this week started construction there on 266 condominiums. The units — a collection of flats, town houses, and a five-story apartment building — will be tucked into a hillside surrounded by 72 acres of hiking trails, beaches and landscaped parks. While the 266 units represent all the housing planned for Yerba Buena Island, the project is significant because it marks the first phase of the massive redevelopment that also includes Treasure Island, the man-made former U.S. Navy base where 7,744 other units are to be built, along with a hotel, restaurants and retail. The revenue generated from the condo sales on Yerba Buena Island will help pay for new … [Read more...] about Development on SF’s Yerba Buena Island an early step in Treasure Island project
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The buzzer had just sounded on another win for Kansas when coach Bill Self collared East Tennessee State guard Bo Hodges in front of his bench and whispered something in his ear. Then he did the same to the Pirates’ Tray Boyd III. “He was just saying we’re a good team. We fight to the end. We’re tough to play,” Boyd said, long after the fourth-ranked Jayhawks weathered a second-half charge for a 75-63 victory Tuesday night. “They’re the No. 4 team in the nation for a reason,” Boyd added, “but we didn’t back down.” They sure didn’t. Kansas (3-1) led by as many as 18 early in the game before the Pirates whittled the lead to 43-31 by the break. East Tennessee State kept charging the final 20 minutes, closing within 61-56 with just over 5 minutes to go, before the Jayhawks finally eased away. “I thought the first punch they gave us really put us down,” Pirates coach Steve Forbes … [Read more...] about Azubuike leads No. 4 Kansas to 75-63 win over E Tennessee St

Back to Gallery The wines of Michael Cruse: Tasting notes Facebook Twitter Email LinkedIn Reddit Pinterest Comments 2 Monkey Jacket Red North Coast 2015 ($25): Cruse’s red blend, named for a lost form of nautical outerwear, incorporates Valdiguié, Tannat and a “mixed block” in Ukiah that Cruse believes to be mostly Petite Sirah. It’s aromatic with tart red fruit — cranberry and violets — and bright citrus on the palate and soft tannins. Exuberant; irrepressible.

Martin Scorsese’s Hilarious War Against Marvel Gone are the good old days when smarmy critics used to wonder if all these superhero flicks were just crappy movies. Now the gatekeepers of cinema have upped the ante, rampaging their assertion that Marvel is killing the artform as we know it. Brie Larson is shaking! It’s been making the rounds this week, first, because it’s incendiary, and second, because it’s kind of funny, that Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola have stacked every soapbox they could find on the Paramount lot to mount and trumpet their distaste for Marvel. They Do! Not! Like! the effect the popularity of these blockbusters is having on the industry. Scorsese, as countless headlines have picked up, opined that Marvel movies … [Read more...] about Does Anyone Care If Marvel Movies Are ‘Cinema’?
