Touting military cooperation and “instructors,” arms deals and investment, Russia is making a comeback in Africa after years of inactivity and now aims to rival European countries and even China, analysts say.

A typical 14-year-old American schoolboy might be fixated on baseball, maybe chasing girls, and dodging their homework. Not Ethan Sonneborn. He’s running for governor in Vermont. The teenager is taking advantage of a quirk in the constitution of the bucolic northeastern state that imposes no age limit on running for governor. Candidates only have to have lived in Vermont for at least four years. Ethan, happily for his campaign, has lived in the state for all 14 of his years. He faces a...
