SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Facebook Inc on Thursday launched an overhaul of how it handles paid political advertisements on the world's largest social network, responding to criticism that it has not done enough to prevent the manipulation of elections.

A series of scandals have opened up the possibility that the company may have created something it can’t fully control.

The Church of Ladder Day Saints in Salt Lake City, UT. has recent acquired the near 200-year-old printer's manuscript of the Book of Mormon, making it the earliest surviving copy in existence.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the social network would hand over the political ads that were purchased by Russian operatives to Congress.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Even a jellyfish - one of Earth's first and most ancient animals - needs its sleep.
