From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Friday:

  • In Washington, First Lady Michelle Obama delivers the keynote address at a summit on childhood obesity.
  • He won the Nobel Prize in Physics. Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879.
  • And sticking with the math and science category: You need it to solve some of life’s geometry problems like the area of a circle or the volume of a cylinder. What is Pi? Tomorrow is Pi day.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
