From the Marketplace datebook, here's what's coming up April 8:
- In Washington, the Labor Department releases its monthly Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey.
- The Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee holds a hearing on "Advanced Biofuels: Creating Jobs and Lower Prices at the Pump."
- The Senate Finance Committee is scheduled to discuss "Protecting Taxpayers from Incompetent and Unethical Return Preparers."
- I know it's only the beginning of the week, but let's talk about beer. The Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America gets underway in Denver. About 7,000 attendees are expected.
- And those following "Boardwalk Empire" saw her brew up some trouble last season. Actress Patricia Arquette turns 46.
“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VABEFORE YOU GO
