* From this week's Business Week: the company Earworms Publishing has discovered that while learning a foreign language, people tend to learn more if things are set to music. Their Rapid Spanish CD is a big hit in the UK and on ITunes and they are going to expand their series to include Arabic and Japanese. Collection developers, take note.
* Also from Business Week: in non-music news, not only can people watch professional sports on TV, but soon they will be able to watch professional gaming. That's right: ESPN will start to broadcast professional gamers playing video games. If you don't have a gaming night at your library, now may be the time to start. Fast.
