From the BBC World Service… Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro has ignored a deadline from the European Union to call fresh elections. Now, European heavyweights, including the U.K., France and Spain, have said they recognize opposition leader Juan Guaidó as interim president. Then, an 11-month inquiry into Australian banks has resulted in recommendations after finding the institutions put profit before consumers. Then, Facebook blows out 15 candles today. But in adolescence, the social giant is facing a host of issues, from election meddling to data security and the possibility of increased regulation.
