  1. Today is Mark Zuckerberg's first day in the hot seat, as he is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation this afternoon. Zuck's prepared testimony doesn't reveal much that we hadn't already learned about Cambridge Analytica and Russian election interference, but everyone will be watching how he handles the grilling.
  2. Today is Equal Pay Day. A new survey from CareerBuilder found 68 percent of women believe they are paid the same amount as men at their company with a similar professional background. However, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, women still earn almost 20 percent less than men on average.
  3. And the video game "Grand Theft Auto V" has made more money than any movie. The 2013 installment of the popular open world game franchise has sold 90 million units, raking in $6 billion to date.
