Home.  Just the sound of the word brings up feelings of comfort and safety.  It's no surprise then, many say they want to be able to grow older in their own homes rather than a nursing or assisted living facility.  What role can design and technology play in helping seniors to remain at home as they age? Then, with the inauguration of president-elect Donald Trump just days away how is Ohio positioned for the incoming administration?  On one hand, voters said yes to Trump in historic numbers.  On the other, we've had several leaders here refuse to jump on the Trump train.  Plus, we'll check in with the latest from the Statehouse team on legislative news out of Columbus.
