Here are some things NCMS employees, members, and the general public are talking about this week!

March Madness is officially underway!

The 2023 ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament is officially underway in Greensboro.  The Champion ship game is Sunday at 1pm.  Top ranked Notre Dame, number two Duke and third ranked Virginia Tech are all vying to take the championship!

  •  It is considered the least productive month of the year because the American workforce is so focused on March Madness and betting on the games.  In 2019 it was estimated that unproductive workers cost employers $4 billion.
  • It is the best month for vasectomies as men choose to recover as they watch basketball
  • Daylight Saving Time begins March 12
  • Get green on St. Patrick’s Day March 17

All that jazz is steaming up Wilmington.  “Chicago” premieres Sunday
