    Months of rumors, speculation and reports that Hillary Clinton would stave off an official campaign announcement until the middle of the year have recently given way to a fresh consensus - that the Clinton 2016 launch is imminent. But pundits who suppose that the controversy over her use of private email as secretary of state has hurried her plans are incorrect. The real driving force is money.

    The questions of what matters in dieting, cutting carbs or counting calories, and whether or not fat needs to be restricted, are not settled. If they were, soda companies wouldn’t be on the ropes; government dietary guidelines wouldn’t need to change every five years and provoke arguments upon release; and publishers would be even poorer than they are now.

    Cersei Lannister may have been onto something: In the end, it did feel pretty good. Season 6 of Game of Thrones was brutal. It hacked through plotlines and characters with abandon, and served up the resulting carnage in great, steaming heaps. But you can’t say it didn’t satisfy. Out of deference to the now truly Late Lord Frey, let’s table the question of how the meat pie was made, and savor the taste for a moment.

    Visitors who travel to the Minhang People’s Court in Shanghai will find themselves staring up at the US Capitol building. This courthouse, like half a dozen others around China, is an almost exact replica of the Washington, D.C., landmark, with a few flourishes cribbed from the White House. It is a short distance away from Thames Town, a British-themed gated community built for 10,000 people, complete with a cathedral copied from Bristol, England.

    At a town hall in Charleston, South Carolina on Wednesday night, Donald Trump once again promised to build a great and “beautiful” wall along the entire length of the United States’s southern border, paid for by the generous people of Mexico. At a separate town hall in Charleston, his closest rival for the GOP presidential nomination, Ted Cruz, bragged about having bravely led the fight to sink bipartisan immigration reform back in 2013.

    European countries long ago decided to take the long-term view of clean energy. Denmark put up its first wind turbine offshore 24 years ago, in 1991; today, Europe has at least 70 complete wind farms and 2,300 turbines in its waters. The United States is just getting started on catching up to its transatlantic neighbors.

    On Thursday, a slew of American Catholic publications announced their joint commitment to abolishing the death penalty in the United States. Prompted by an upcoming Supreme Court hearing on the use of certain drug combinations in lethal injections, the statement represents a rare and welcome moment of unity among Catholics of varied political commitments. No such unity can be found among the 78.2 million American Catholics themselves.

    A few years ago, when Iraqi prime minister Nuri Al Maliki was still in office, a group of his closest aides traveled to Amman, Jordan, and rented suites in one of the city’s most luxurious hotels. They were there for meetings with foreign businessmen who had flown in to seek a lucrative contract for an energy-related project - one that would help rebuild Iraq’s battered infrastructure. Baghdad, like much of Iraq, remained in a state of chaos, and was thus too dangerous for visitors.

    Not all that long ago, everybody seemed to be cheering the rowdy resurgence of democracy. Social media was hailed for making our politics more inclusive and participatory. Opinion makers were praising “the wisdom of crowds” and the creativity of the “hive mind.” Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party uprising had unleashed a flowering of political protest, from left and right, that America hadn’t seen in decades.
