From the moment the Prince and Princess of Wales’s (commercial) flight touched down at Boston’s Logan International Airport this week, Kate Middleton ‘s style set a clear agenda: She did not come to play.
Each element of her strategically chosen outfits seemed selected to signal a message, from the value of British tailoring and design, to the environmental consciousness of certain pieces, to a connection to the past—in the form of the jewelry of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
A group of thieves were thwarted after they attempted to steal a mural by the renowned street artist Banksy on the outskirts of Kyiv, a Ukrainian official said Friday.
He said the thieves “were detained at the scene,” and the image was “undamaged” and under the protection of law enforcement officers.
A vocal anti-war activist, Banksy has also painted murals in Gaza and the West Bank.
His work, normally sprayed on the sides of buildings, has been threatened by thieves before.
In June, eight were convicted in Paris over the 2019 theft of a Banksy mural at the Bataclan concert hall in Paris which commemorated the victims of a 2015 terror attack at the venue.
If the deal is approved by Delta pilots, it is widely expected to act as a benchmark for contract negotiations at rivals United Airlines (UAL.O) and American Airlines (AAL.O).
The Atlanta-based carrier's pilots have been working without a new contract for nearly three years after their old contract became amendable in December 2019, fueling frustration.
In the draft agreement, Delta promises that pay rates of its pilots will exceed those at United and American by at least 1%.
In a year of protests for the industry, pilots at all major U.S. carriers have been demanding higher wages and a better work-life balance.
In its memo, Delta's pilot union said more than 25% of the value of the contract agreement is dedicated to quality-of-life related items.

REUTERS/Shannon StapletonCHICAGO, Dec 2 (Reuters) - Delta Air Lines (DAL.N) has offered a 34% pay increase to its pilots over three years in a new contract, according to a draft agreement seen by Reuters.
The pilots will get a raise of at least 18% raise on the date the contract is signed, another 5% after one year, 4% after two years and 4% after three years, it says.

"I think it probably goes back to 2018 in the World Cup.
"As the tournament went on I felt like my performances maybe dipped in the latter stages.
I was trying to make sure that, physically and mentally, I was in the best place for the knockout stages.
I would love to be sitting here with two or three goals now, but I think the group stage has gone well.
We know that they're African champions - very proud, great competitive spirit, a lot of belief in the team," Southgate added.
DOHA, QATAR - DECEMBER 03: The players of Netherlands celebrate victory at full time during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Round of 16 match between Netherlands and USA at Khalifa International Stadium on December 3, 2022 in Doha, Qatar.
Using the second-youngest squad in the tournament, the Americans achieved the bare minimum to consider the World Cup a success, beating Iran in their group-stage finale to reach the knockout round.
But just like in 2010 against Ghana and 2014 against Belgium, the United States was eliminated in the round of 16.
The Americans are winless in 12 games against European opponents at the World Cup since 2002, losing six, and are 1-7 during the tournament's knockout rounds.
In 37 World Cup matches, the Americans have never won a game in which they trailed.
Striker Memphis Depay got the first goal as the Netherlands advanced to a seventh World Cup quarter-final.
“We also lost a lot of ball possession, and it is not acceptable at a World Cup, especially if you are playing a top-level team,” he said.
ALMOST IDENTICALThe second Dutch goal, on the stroke of halftime, was almost identical.
“They were fantastic goals, they had a beauty about them but they were also team goals,” said Van Gaal.
“We talked about the game being about moments," said U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter, whose country co-host the 2026 World Cup.
[1/5] Soccer Football - FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 - Round of 16 - Netherlands v United States - Khalifa International Stadium, Doha, Qatar - December 3, 2022 United States players applaud fans after the match as United States are eliminated from the World Cup REUTERS/Annegret HilseAL RAYYAN, Qatar, Dec 3 (Reuters) - The United States exited the World Cup with a Round of 16 loss to the Netherlands on Saturday but looking towards the 2026 horizon, a bright future is rising for the young Americans.
With defender DeAndre Yedlin, who played in Brazil in 2014, the only link to the country's World Cup past, the Americans' lack of experience was glaring at moments but offset by exuberance and a breathless work rate.
A gritty, politically charged win over Iran and draws against England and Wales carried the United States into the last 16 but more will be expected on home soil.
"We're just not there yet, we have to use this World Cup to establish ourselves.
The loss to the Netherlands underscored the hard work ahead if the Americans plan to venture beyond the Round of 16 in 2026.

The High Ambition Coalition of over 40 countries, including EU members, Switzerland, host Uruguay and Ghana, wants the treaty to be based on mandatory global measures, including curbs on production.
That approach contrasts with the country-driven pledges advocated by countries including the United States and Saudi Arabia.
Critics say such an approach would weaken a global treaty.
Industry representatives at the talks touted the essential role of plastics in daily life, calling for the treaty to focus tackling waste rather than measures to sap production.
Environmental group Greenpeace said that without a strong treaty, plastic production could double within the next 10 to 15 years, and triple by 2050.
Lufthansa has reached a settlement with more than 100 Orthodox Jewish men who were barred from a flight.
Each passenger will receive "$21,000 and change" from the German airline, Hamodia reported.
The May 4 incident saw passengers accuse Lufthansa of racial profiling.
A handful of the passengers did not wear masks, prompting the airline to deny boarding to more than 100 visibly Jewish passengers.
According to the Orthodox Jewish news service COL Live, Spohr told Rabbi Yehuda Teichtal that "antisemitism has no place at Lufthansa."
It was another Dutch performance at the Qatar World Cup that will not please their demanding supporters as they were unusually cautious at times, played at a slow tempo, and lived dangerously by allowing the Americans plenty of possession.
The response from the Dutch was swift.
The lively start was quickly replaced with a more languid passage of play, the Netherlands sitting back as they waited for counter-attack chances.
Those misses were swiftly punished as the Dutch broke again down the right and scored a carbon copy of the first goal when Dumfries pulled back his cross for 32-year-old left back Blind to score in his 98th international.

The crypto platform owes $30 million to the SEC, per bankruptcy filings.
FTX, which once offered BlockFi a $400 million credit line, ultimately led to the firm's bankruptcy.
BlockFi cited significant exposure to Sam Bankman-Fried's crypto empire, which filed for bankruptcy on November 11.
Ironically, once FTX's "death spiral" began, BlockFi's liquidity crisis ensued and the company paused user account withdrawals on its platform.
Due to the loan agreement and $355 million in digital assets held on FTX, BlockFi had substantial exposure.
DOHA, Dec 3 (Reuters) - The Netherlands became the first country into the World Cup quarter-finals as they beat the United States 3-1 at the Khalifa International Stadium on Saturday.
Substitute Haji Wright scrambled in a reply for the United States in the 76th minute to give the Americans hope but Denzel Dumfries's volley sealed a seventh quarter-final appearance for the Dutch.
Dumfries then played a carbon copy ball for Blind to make it 2-0 and put his side in cruise control.
Wright bundled home from a Christian Pulisic cross but Dumfries crowned a great display to finish off the Americans.

The B-21 Raider is the first new American bomber aircraft in more than 30 years.
Both the Air Force and Northrop also point to the Raider's relatively quick development: The bomber went from contract award to debut in seven years.
And we will build the bomber force in numbers suited to the strategic environment ahead," Austin said.
The B-21 Raider, which takes its name from the 1942 Doolittle Raid over Tokyo, will be slightly smaller than the B-2 to increase its range, Warden said.
Northrop Grumman has also incorporated maintenance lessons learned from the B-2, Warden said.
BUENOS AIRES, Dec 2 (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said on Friday it has reached a agreement with Argentine authorities on a third review under its Extended Fund Facility Arrangement, which could give the South American country access to around $6 billion.
The IMF said in a statement the staff-level agreement remained subject to approval by its executive board, expected to meet this month.
The fund said the country was presenting a prudent macroeconomic management and efforts to mobilize external financing.
IMF said its program objectives remain unchanged during the remainder of 2022 and 2023, and highlighted the importance of "continued decisive policy implementation" as domestic and external environments become more challenging.
Latin America's third largest economy signed an agreement with IMF in March to refinance a debt for $44 billion, a deal that set targets around the country's central bank reserves and the financing of the fiscal deficit.
Russian airline Aeroflot has been forced to remove in-flight entertainment on some services.
The airline suggested passengers read, meditate, or take a nap while it works on a "domestic solution."
Aeroflot has managed to keep flying despite western sanctions increasingly hobbling operations.
Aeroflot didn't say why it couldn't offer entertainment, and it doesn't appear to have affected the airline's larger aircraft.
After halting flights to several international destinations because of flight path restrictions, Aeroflot resumed flights to Thailand, India, and the Maldives in October.
ISLAMABAD, Dec 2 (Reuters) - Pakistan repaid a $1 billion international bond, the central bank spokesman said on Friday, amidst growing uncertainty about the country's ability to meet external financing obligations.
"The payment (was) made to Citibank New York," State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) spokesman Abid Qamar told Reuters in a message.
The bond repayment, which matures on Dec. 5, totals $1.08 billion, the central bank chief said last week.
During the week ended Nov. 25, SBP reserves stood at $7,498.7 million.
Saudi Arabia on Friday also extended the term of a $3 billion deposit it has in Pakistan's foreign reserves.
AL RAYYAN, Qatar, Dec 3 (Reuters) - Lionel Messi scored his first goal in a World Cup knockout round on his 1,000th career appearance to beat Diego Maradona's tournament tally for Argentina as they beat off a late Australia fightback to win 2-1 on Saturday and reach the quarter-finals.
Messi put Argentina ahead after 35 minutes with a coolly taken strike low into the corner for his 94th international goal to pass the great Maradona's eight World Cup goals, in a match where he was instrumental in almost every Argentine attack.
Lifted throughout by rapturous, overwhelmingly Argentine support that sang and bounced in unison on all sides of the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium, Argentina pressed and finally made the breakthrough.
After Goodwin's deflected shot found the net, there was a real prospect of extra time in a stadium where the Socceroos had booked their World Cup place via a penalty shootout in an intercontinental playoff earlier this year.
Argentina looked dangerous late on as they battled for a third goal, with Lautaro Martinez firing wide before substitute Garang Kuol missed with seconds left in stoppage time.
American Airlines is closing its San Francisco base, potentially displacing 400 flight attendants.
The base is home to some of the carrier's most senior flight attendants, two-thirds of whom have been at the airline for 13 years or more, according to the union representing American Airlines flight attendants.
In interviews, 10 SFO-based flight attendants told Insider that a myriad of factors make it difficult to leave the Bay Area.
The decades of experience with the goal of achieving that lifestyle are now effectively lost, one flight attendant told Insider.
Some employees expressed confusion on why they need to leave San Francisco if the carrier will still need to staff SFO flights.
Two years later, the wealthy Coen family contracted Gonzalez to promote their Grupo Coen conglomerate in three world title fights in exchange for a house worth $150,000.
Gonzalez's relationship with Grupo Coen also fractured.
In 2019, he sued Grupo Coen after it refused to pay the boxer, claiming he didn't contest enough world title fights to fullfil his contract.
This year, the courts awarded an extra $150,000 to Gonzalez against Grupo Coen, according to court documents seen by Reuters.
Grupo Coen declined to comment.
The Russian air force's performance in Ukraine has fallen well short of expectations before the war.
Neither the Russia air force nor Ukrainian forces can control the skies over Ukraine, however.
But Russian aircraft have never able to achieve air superiority over Ukraine.
Right now, neither military can control the airspace over Ukraine, but pilots from both sides are still finding ways to operate.
In Ukraine, Russian and Ukrainian aircraft often have to fire blindly or with only cursory attempts to aim at enemy targets before ducking down or veering off to avoid incoming fire.
KYIV, Dec 3 (Reuters) - The price cap on Russian seaborne crude oil agreed to by the Group of Seven nations and Australia on Friday should be lowered to $30 per barrel to hit Russia's economy harder, a senior Ukrainian presidential aide said on Saturday.
"This was everything that was proposed by the McFaul-Yermak group, but it would be necessary to lower it to $30 to destroy the enemy's economy quicker," Andriy Yermak, head of Ukraine's presidential administration, wrote on Telegram referencing an international working group on sanctions.
The G7 and Australia have agreed a $60 per barrel price cap.

DOHA, Qatar—The most consequential U.S. men’s national team game in two decades is one coach Gregg Berhalter has been preparing for his entire career.
He had no idea when he moved to Holland as a 21-year-old that he would one day face the Netherlands for a spot in the World Cup quarterfinals.
But on Saturday, in a win-or-go-home match at Khalifa International Stadium, the soccer philosophy he most admires will be turned against him.
It represents the biggest test so far of Berhalter’s skills as an in-game manager, pitting him against one of the great tacticians of the modern game, a wily 71-year-old named Louis van Gaal.
