Zuckerberg's Senate hearing



This week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before members of Congress, splitting his visit into two days of questioning. There were expected queries regarding the Cambridge Analytica data breach scandal, about whether Facebook has grown too large and could be considered a monopoly, and how to better regulate the platform.

According to Canterbury Auction Galleries, Tiger Ying, a rare Chinese bronze water vessel with its spout and lid cast with models of tigers, dates back some 3,000 years with an estimated value price of 120,000 to 200,000 pounds.
