FEATURED HEADLINES

CHIPOTLE QUIERE TACO BELL

The fast-casual Mexican food chain named Taco Bell's CEO as its new chief, sending shares soaring more than 11 percent Tuesday. Brian Niccol will replace Chipotle's current CEO and founder, Steve Ells, who will remain on as executive chairman and oversee innovation at the company. Niccol was responsible for repositioning Taco Bell as a "lifestyle" brand and introducing the chain's line of breakfast items. He'll have a tough task at the helm of his new company -- Chipotle has been dogged in recent years by outbreaks of E.coli and norovirus. Shares are down more than 60 percent since their all-time highs.

BILL AND MELINDA GATES’ GROWING CONCERNS

The Microsoft co-founder and his wife published their tenth annual letter Tuesday and outlined the tough questions people pose to them. Among the most-asked: the Gates' feelings about President Trump. Bill Gates took issue with the commander-in-chief's "America First" agenda and his proposed cuts to foreign aid. Melinda Gates added that she wishes the president would treat people with more respect, including on Twitter. The pair also expressed concerns over the growing influence of social media, with Bill saying he hasn't seen "great solutions" yet, but he's hopeful they'll come.

REMEMBER...FACEBOOK IS NOT A MEDIA COMPANY

The social media giant announced its Watch video streaming platform will now have a section devoted to breaking news. Watch, which debuted in August, is still in its early stages. No word yet on when the new feature will launch or what sources will be available on it. The announcement comes weeks after Facebook said it was changing its News Feed to prioritize posts from friends and family over those from publishers. Separately the company also said it will allow paywalls inside its iOS app. That ability has been tested on the Android version since October.
