The historic zoo
Buenos Aires zoo was opened in 1888 and functioned until 2016. Although today it is in the process of being transformed into the modern eco-park, visitors can still appreciate its original Victorian-era architecture. The pavillions, which have been declared national historic monuments, reflect the traditional architecture of the countries that the different animals came from – with Moorish, Indian, Chinese and Greek/Roman-style buildings. The former zoo also boasts numerous pieces of art including work by Argentine scultress Lola Mora.

Washington (CNN)Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam on Wednesday said he will reintroduce gun control measures in the upcoming legislative sessions now that Democrats have taken control of the state legislature.“Getting rid of bump stocks, high volume magazines, red flag laws. These are common-sense pieces of legislation,” he told CNN’s John Berman on “New Day.” “I will introduce those again in January. And I’m convinced, with the majority now in the House and the Senate, they’ll become law and because of that, Virginia will be safer.”Democrats took control of the Virginia House and Senate on Tuesday for the first time in more than 20 years. Northam and Democrats will now have an advantage in the assembly to pursue gun control measures that Republicans have pushed against and blocked.

AMBRIDGE — A Pittsburgh-based activist is facing more than a dozen charges after police say she pepper-sprayed a family outside of their Ambridge home.
Dena Stanley, 35, of 252 Butler St. in Pittsburgh, is facing 14 charges, including several counts of felony aggravated assault, following an Oct. 29 incident.
According to a criminal complaint, officers were dispatched to 1027 Beaver Road in response to reports of an assault late last month.
Cecilia Melvin said she and her two children, 15 and 7 years old, were pepper-sprayed and assaulted by Stanley — someone she claims to have never met — following an argument between Stanley’s niece and Melvin’s family.

Firefighters and a hazmat team responded to the scene, though officials said there was no hazmat concern or risk to public safety.
Officials from Norfolk Southern are investigating the cause of the derailment. They said a Norfolk Southern train was heading west transporting empty crude oil tank cars from Altoona to Conway when it collided with the back of another Norfolk Southern train.
The two train locomotives pulling the crude oil cars were knocked off the track but remained upright. Three rail cars transporting 18 shipping containers derailed off the freight train.
Officials said some of the equipment that derailed hit a portion of another train that was traveling east on the adjacent mainline track, causing the derailment of eight rail cars transporting 32 containers.
Norfolk Southern officials said no hazardous materials are known to have spilled.
The derailment has blocked train traffic on both tracks.
Crews are working to clear the tracks and restore service, though cleanup could take days.

Until now, the only options in Pittsburgh for long-distance ground transportation besides cars have been Greyhound bus, MegaBus, and the sporadic Amtrak train. FlixBus, a bus service originating in Germany, will expand its U.S. service to Pittsburgh starting Thu., Nov. 14.
FlixBus will launch service between Columbus, Ohio, Pittsburgh, and Washington D.C. Unlike other bus services, which usually stop in other areas like State College or Harrisburg, FlixBus is direct. The estimated travel time for a MegaBus trip from Pittsburgh to Washington, D.C., is around six and a half hours, while the same trip for Greyhound is anywhere between six and eight and a half hours. On FlixBus, the estimated travel time is around four and a half hours.
