Market On The Upswing

I found this to be an interesting article. I was particularly struck by this quote:

"Over 38% of employees surveyed indicate that they will be seeking a new job as soon as the economy improves. Job dissatisfaction and stress are at their highest levels in memory and will be the catalyst for dramatic increases in employee turnover. More people changing jobs means more job openings and more opportunities."

I wonder what the side effect will be on large amounts of employee turnover. It can't be good for the short-term productivity of the company, as experienced workers take a lot of knowledge out the door with them when they leave.

Huh...

From Anime News Network:

Adult Swim released a few more specifics about their new shows on their message board. Adult Swim has acquired 50 episodes of Detective Conan, the first of which will premiere on Monday April 5th at 12:30 am. Wolf's Rain will premiere on Saturday, April 24th at 11pm, followed by the first of the new of Inu Yasha episodes at 11:30, two episodes will be shown.

Y'know, I never thought anyone would pick up Detective Conan. Not that it's not cool, just that it's... well, less likely to appeal to the fans. No robots, no over-endowed, scantily-clad, squeaky women. Just a lot of mysteries. Which, now that I put it that way, probably makes it a really good series for bringing over.
