How are older adults coping with the mental health effects of COVID-19? Analysis reveals resilience in many individuals and what factors may be driving it — ScienceDaily

Older adults are especially vulnerable to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic — with higher risks of severe complications and death, and potentially greater difficulties accessing care and adapting to technologies such as telemedicine. A viewpoint article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association notes that there’s also a concern that isolation during the pandemic could be more difficult for older individuals, which could exacerbate existing mental health conditions. Information gathered over the past several months suggests a much more nuanced picture, however.

“Over the spring and summer of 2020, we were struck by a number of individual studies from all over the world that reported a consistent theme: Older adults, as a group, appeared to be withstanding the strains on mental health from the pandemic better than all other age groups,” said lead author Ipsit Vahia, MD, medical director of the Geriatric Psychiatry Outpatient Services and the

‘Anti-antibiotic’ allows for use of antibiotics without driving resistance — ScienceDaily

An inexpensive, FDA-approved drug — cholestyramine — taken in conjunction with an antibiotic prevents the antibiotic from driving antimicrobial resistance, according to new research by scientists at Penn State and the University of Michigan. The team’s findings appear today (Dec. 1) in the journal eLife.

“Antimicrobial resistance is a serious problem that has led to people dying from common bacterial infections,” said Andrew Read, Evan Pugh Professor of Biology and Entomology and director of the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences, Penn State. “Many of our most important antibiotics are failing, and we are beginning to run out of options. We have created a therapy that may help in the fight against antimicrobial resistance, an ‘anti-antibiotic’ that allows antibiotic treatment without driving the evolution and onward transmission of resistance.”

According to Valerie Morley, postdoctoral scholar in the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences, Penn State, an important cause of

Technology, growth opportunities driving manufacturing M&A

Though the pandemic temporarily put a lot of deals on pause, mergers and acquisition activity has picked up in recent months for the manufacturing sector.

In Northeast Ohio, notable deals have been announced or completed by Cleveland-Cliffs Inc., Team Wendy LLC and TransDigm Group Inc. Cleveland-Cliffs intends to purchase ArcelorMittal USA for about $1.4 billion, after acquiring AK Steel back in March. TransDigm has agreed to buy United Kingdom-based Cobham Aerospace Connectivity for about $965 million. And Team Wendy was bought by Avon Rubber PLC in the U.K. for $130 million. That’s all just from the last two months.

This year has been “a little bit of a tale of two cities,” said Andrew Wilson, partner in M&A services at Deloitte & Touche LLP.

The pandemic put many deals on pause, but activity picked up after the “initial shock” of March, April and May passed, he said. But different state-by-state
