Arizona entrepreneur and philanthropist Jason Hope supports new research being done by an organization known as SENS Research Foundation. He hopes that by supporting this initiative, he will assist people to live long healthy lives. The research being done hopes to come up with a drug that will slow down or stop the natural process of aging in human beings. Jason Hope has supported the activities of this organization by donating funds that will go directly into research of the anti-aging drug, Jason Hope wants to see technology have an impact on the healthcare industry by creating a drug that will combat and solve all the old age diseases that affect human beings.

Jason Hope started to support the SENS foundation almost a decade ago. The organization was launched in 2009, and by 2010, he had given then a donation of $500,000 which went directly to building a new laboratory and initiating the process of coming up with an anti-aging drug. SENS Foundation is committed to utilizing technology to solve one of the biggest challenges facing humanity.

SENS Foundation is applying biotechnology to solve the aging puzzle. The approach that they are applying will not only stop old age diseases through treatment but rather will stop these disease by solving the root cause of the disease. The problem with treatment methods that are available today treat the disease but does not address the cause of the problem. The cause of the disease is left intact meaning that it can as well initiate the disease again. SENS want to stop this by curing the cause of the old age diseases which is the aging causing substance. The drug they are creating will repair body cells making them remain fully functional for a long time.

SENS Foundation has not only concentrated on research programs but also public awareness on the topic of aging. By changing the public perception on this topic, they will lay a foundation of a revolution in the way people view aging. Many more people will dedicate time, resources and knowledge to solve the aging problem.

SENS Foundation has been collaborating with various universities and organization in research work. They have worked closely with Yale, Harvard, Cambridge and the Arizona State University. SENS Foundation was founded and is headed by Aubrey de Grey, an artificial intelligence expert who studied computer science at the University of Cambridge. He switched his interests to aging problems and earned a Ph.D. in Biology.

A disturbing trend has been noted by Jewish advocacy groups concerning rising anti-semetism at Universities worldwide. Several instances of discrimination, hostility, and persecution have been reported by people of Jewish decent attending institutions of higher learning. In a US study from information gathered in years 2015 through 2017, Jewish students from four prominent American Universities reported dissident opinions towards Israel and open tolerance for anti-semetic views. At the prestigious ivy league college, Stanford, there has been an open discussion against Israel, with established movements like Boycott, Divest, and Sanction, or BDS, demonizing Israel and it’s supporters for their perceived oppression of Palestine. Many have argued that the BDS movement has increased racism against Jewish students. At Drexel University, a young man found a swastika and the word ‘Jew’ placed near his Israeli flag using duct tape and reported it to campus police. In fall of 2015, a Illinois student awoke to a black swastika spray painted outside her dorm window. Jewish advocate, Rabbi Dov Hillel Klein had this to say about the incident, “Its very sad when you realize hatred still exists”.

Reports of Jewish harassment, vandalism, and assault have poured in from all parts of the world. In 2017, the Community Security Trust organization, reviewed over 700 cases of anti-semetic incidents in the UK. For the 1st six months of 2017, the CST reported the highest number of anti-semetic cases since they began keeping record in 1984. The incidents range from violent assault to harassment via modern conventions like social media.

Some students have not found the openness of social media to be a tool against their oppression. After finding an offensive anti-semetic sticker, Izzy Lenga, a UK academic on the cusp of graduating, posted the image on social media. It was at this time, that Izzy learned how the unfiltered and uncensored style of the internet allows anti-semetism to fester with no regard for it’s victims. Within 24 hours of her posting, Izzy received over 2000 messages of hate and dissent, including messages from anti-Israel groups like National Action.

Sahm Adrangi is a 33-year-old executive who owns and operates his own New York City investment firm, Kerrisdale Capital Management. In February 2018 he issued a very negative report about Eastman Kodak Company and their new plan to enter the area of cryptocurrencies. His report highlighted some of his thoughts and findings and invited investors to listen in on a conference call he would be conducting about Eastman Kodak. He also explained that he had taken a short position on Eastman Kodak Company’s stock in the hedge fund that he operates.

In early February Eastman Kodak Company had announced two developments that tied in with each other. The first was KODAKOne, their new image licensing platform. The second was KODAKCoin which is their new cryptocurrency. The plan is that people will buy images on KODAKOne using KODAKCoin and the owners of the images would receive payment in the form of KODAKCoin. Among the many problems Sahm Adrangi has with this is that no one in their right mind wants to get paid with some cryptocurrency whose value isn’t backed by anything and the value of which fluctuate wildly.

Another thing that Sahm Adrangi said in his report was that Eastman Kodak Company has had poor fundamentals for years and their entering the cryptocurrency industry will do nothing at all about that. He also said their capital structure is buried in debt and, again, entering the cryptocurrency industry wouldn’t change that fact either. When Eastman Kodak had made their announcement their stock shot up close to 200%. Sahm Adrangi said this was entirely unjustified and it was all built on hype and speculation. He expected their stock to soon tank once investors understood what was happening.

Prior to opening Kerrisdale Capital Management, Sahm Adrangi had been an analyst in the financial industry. He had worked for three firms which were Deutsche Bank, Longacre Fund Management, and Chanin Capital Partners. He has experience in a few different specialties such as restructuring, distressed debt credit, equity funds, and leverage financing among others. His hedge fund manages about $300 million in assets and it was founded in 2009.

In recent years, many different viewpoints have come to the forefront regarding opposing viewpoints on various issues. This has been especially common with anti-Semitic groups, who have held numerous demonstrations against Israel and those of Jewish heritage. To combat these radical ideas, philanthropist and author Adam Milstein has chosen to use his talents as a writer to regularly contribute interesting and thought-provoking articles to the Jewish News Syndicate. By doing so, Adam is able to get his message of tolerance and compassion across to a vast audience, all the while being able to also focus on his philanthropic and business interests.

Knowing that it takes far more than written words to get positive results, Adam Milstein and his wife Gila chose to create an organization that would not only spread a positive message to Jewish families, but also offer numerous means of financial and other assistance. The result of their efforts has been the Milstein Family Foundation, which over the years has helped Jewish families in the United States, Israel, and other nations with financial difficulties as well as other issues. Helping regularly with relief efforts and other endeavors, Adam and Gila’s foundation focuses heavily on education. In this regard, the foundation sends families large amounts of books each month, all of which are written in Hebrew and explain many little-known aspects of Jewish heritage. By embarking on this cause, Adam and Gila’s foundation helps families learn about their heritage, while also learning Hebrew.

Having established himself as a leading businessman within the Jewish community, Adam Milstein feels it is very important for him to be a positive role model for those who share his beliefs and values. One way he has chosen to do so is by using his real estate development business to help local communities obtain properties for Jewish schools, worship centers, community centers, and other organizations that can help build confidence and self-esteem. Based on these and other actions, it’s clear Adam Milstein will use his forum at JNS as well as his business and philanthropic ventures to keep the traditions of the Jewish faith alive.

It’s also about people living healthier lives free of diseases. As people age they are prone to age-related diseases which companies in this field of medicine are seeking to halt from happening. One company in this industry is the SENS Foundation.

A number of years ago Arizona Entrepreneur Jason Hope learned about the SENS Foundation and their mission. He was inspired by what they wanted to accomplish. He ended up making a half-million contribution to this nonprofit so that they could build a new lab they needed to further their research. This was in 2010 and he subsequently gave over $1 million since that time. He says he is gratified to be able to help financially support anti-aging research and follows developments at the SENS Foundation closely.

Jason Hope was one of the early entrepreneurs in the mobile technology industry. He now invests in startups in the broader tech industry. He says he has a portfolio of companies he has invested in including search engine optimization firms, interactive software, digital media solutions, and business information systems. He says the future will rely on technology even more than it does today and the industry can only grow from here.

After he graduated from ASU with a degree in finance and then an MBA, he says that he knew he was going to need to do something business related. He established his first company in January 2004 when the mobile technology industry was in its infancy. Jason Hope has said that he was profitable early on although he had setbacks, just like any entrepreneur. He says having a healthy sense of doubt about your business’ success is good because it makes you try harder and anticipate issues. Its all about how you handle failure and successfully meet challenges that determines whether your company will fail or thrive.

Over the past year Jason Hope has extended the breadth of his writing. He has been writing about technology for a number of years but this was mostly on blogs. He is now reaching a larger audience so that people know what’s coming down the pike in the field of technology. He says he has scaled back some of his other work so that he has more time to write and perform research.
