Science of Happiness And Empathy; Ohio Ranks Near Bottom In Safety Laws; Statehouse Update
Don't worry, be happy. But how, exactly, do you not worry? Stress abounds and, as we discussed here a while back, incivil discourse isn't helping matters. Has the "pursuit of happiness" hit a roadblock? This morning, we'll discuss strategies to zip around, or plow right through, the trouble spots. Social connections and empathy may be the perfect navigators. A local university professor who teaches a course on the science of happiness shares insights. Later, Ohio was near the bottom of the list when highway safety advocates rated state driving laws. Among other suggestions: Seatbelts should be required in the back seat, and teens should wait longer to get a license. We'll talk about that, too.
