For emerging adults, pandemic serves up unique challenges

first_imgCONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The pandemic has been hard on both kids and adults, but it’s also been challenging for those who are in between. Demographic shifts during the last century have given rise to a distinct developmental stage called “emerging adulthood” that spans the late teens and early twenties. With the pandemic causing major disruptions in education, employment, housing and more, young people who are no longer adolescents but not quite adults are struggling to find their footing. Some experts worry that could have long-term negative effects, though the psychologist who coined the phrase “emerging adulthood” said this age group is resilient and likely will bounce back.last_img read more

Share Photo credit: inquisitr.comNEW YORK, USA — Drugmaker Johnson & Johnson has issued another recall of Motrin, this time from retailers, including those in Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Belize, St Lucia and Jamaica, bringing the number of recalls for this drug alone to six in the past two years.J&J subsidiary McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division is voluntarily recalling certain lots of Motrin IB 24-count coated caplets, Motrin IB 24-count coated tablets and Motrin IB 24+6-count coated caplets from retailers. The products were distributed in the United States, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Fiji, Belize, St Lucia and Jamaica.This is not a consumer level recall, which means that consumers do not need to dispose of or return the product. There is no safety concern if consumers continue taking the product in accordance with its label; however, it is possible there may be a delay in experiencing relief. This action is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse events.McNeil is recalling these products because testing of product samples showed that some caplets may not dissolve as quickly as intended when nearing their expiration date.By Caribbean News Now contributor 26 Views   one commentcenter_img Share Share HealthLifestyle Motrin recalled from Caribbean retailers by: – December 29, 2011last_img read more
