Holiday moods often run the gamut between joy and melancholy. And, an Ohio State University researcher says an individual’s great expectations have a bearing on whether someone smiles or frowns. College of Social Work Professor, Gilbert Greene, says the key is to identify whether stress is likely to help or hurt one’s mood.
Ohio’s Economy Matching Growth Of The Nation
Newly released numbers show Ohio matched the growth of the national economy last year.
That makes the fourth straight year that growth in the Buckeye State either matched or surpassed the national average after trailing the nation for years heading into the Great Recession.
That’s according to federal data released Wednesday by the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
The statistics show the Ohio economy grew by 1.8 percent in 2013, ranking 26th among the states. However, the growth last year was less than the past three years.
IHS Global Insight economist Karl Kuykendall tells the Columbus Dispatch the strong growth rate that Ohio saw in the previous three years wasn’t sustainable, given the state’s demographics.
