As the world turns, don’t stress about it

From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s an extended look at what’s coming up next week:

  • Take me out to the ball game. Monday is opening day for Major League Baseball.
  • On March 31, 1889 the Eiffel Tower was complete! It only took 2 years, 2 months and 5 days. It’s held together by 2.5 million rivets. I counted them so you don’t have to. You can thank me later.
  • Tuesday is April Fools’ Day. Tie a string around your finger so you don’t forget.
  • Automakers are slated to report sales for March and the Commerce Department reports on Construction Spending for February.
  • Mid-week the Senate Homeland Security Committee holds a hearing titled, “Data Breach on the Rise: Protecting Personal Information from Harm.”
  • As the World Turns” premiered in 1956. It ran until 2010. That’s a lot of soap.
  • And Wednesday is Peanut Butter and Jelly Day. Burn it off *the same day in observance of National Walking Day.
  • We wrap up the week with the monthly jobs report due out from the Labor Department.
  • And April is Stress Awareness Month. So don’t stress about it, whatever it is. And good luck with that.

*CORRECTION: In an earlier version of this story we provided the incorrect date for National Walking Day. The text has been corrected.
