There are still two Greyjoys on the board and one final war to win. You could say that, after the Night King and the White Walkers have been defeated, it seems like a downgrade in drama for Daenerys and Jon to squabble over who the rightful ruler is. But that's the false sense of security that usually precedes Game of Thrones' most shocking deaths. Shinola Hotel, 1400 Woodward Avenue; 313-356-1400; www.shinolahotel.com
The combined testimony of these witnesses was devastating. They described how, for nearly 30 years, Mr. Guzmán moved tons of drugs from Central America to Mexico — and then to the United States and Canada — through a mind-boggling variety of methods: speedboats, tuna-fishing boats, carbon-fiber airplanes designed to evade radar, helicopters, passenger cars, cargo trains, semi-submersible submarines, tractor-trailers packed with cans of jalapeños and yet another tunnel (hidden under a pool table). “Yes, we must dramatically increase federal investment for research and development into clean energy technologies and climate solutions. Fortunately, today we already have so many of the technologies we need to defeat climate change — we simply have to put them to work. When I co-authored a book on clean energy a dozen years ago, this was not the case. And it is thanks in large part to the major down payment that we made into our clean energy future, as part of the 2009 Recovery Act, and because of the leadership of states in driving a domestic market for clean energy technologies. During my time as governor of Washington State, we’ve established a Clean Energy Research Institute at the University of Washington which is right now exploring breakthroughs in solar energy and battery storage technologies. The federal government has a critical role in play in catalyzing new clean-tech innovations, and in helping bring them to market. Increased federal R&D investment must be part of a successful climate agenda — and it must be focused on a range of technologies, from next-generation renewables and energy storage, to the capture and removal from the air of greenhouse gas pollution.XS M S
TYPE ::MOUNTAIN BIKEThe Volkswagen I.D. R race car destroyed the overall record at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, and it repeated that success at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this past weekend. After the Olympics, the women’s team embarked on a weeklong national media tour, but players were frustrated that there were no plans for a post-Olympic exhibition tour. In an interview late last year, forward Hilary Knight lamented that the team disappeared when its popularity was at its highest.

Then, another guy would mess up. “‘Let’s do it again. Let’s do it again.’ It was the worst thing to hear,” he added.
Attempting to solve this paradox, some models have opted for more high-energy impacts, according to Bill Bottke, a planetary scientist at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colo., who was not involved with the current study. These models excavate more of Earth’s material for building the moon, but the moon’s orbit or Earth’s spin aren’t accurately reproduced without using convoluted workarounds. In an argument elaborating on a point made by Drutman, Edward Carmines, a political scientist at Indiana University, made the case that the 2016 defeat of Hillary Clinton fostered the shift to the left:
