The hardest-hitting news stories this week related to the publishing of the Panama Papers, 11.5 million documents originally provided to the Süddeutsche Zeitung that implicate many highly placed politicians and businessmen in using offshore bank accounts to hide lots and lots of money from taxation. We recommend that you sort through the wreckage, and when you’re done and in the mood for a pick-me-up, turn your attention to the 20th Annual Webby Awards. We’re honored to be nominated as one of the best lifestyle sites on the web (a category we won last year) and we could use your help by voting for us in the “People’s Choice” contest. We appreciate it, and in return: an early look at Hasselblad’s new medium-format camera, a guide to the best summer music festivals, 20 beers you should drink now (not all at once) and much more. Enjoy your weekend. – Jeremy Berger
