No More Fearing the Future: Jason Hope and SENS

There are so many anti-aging creams and remedies on the market today. However, these products all focus on making the body appear to have less age when really all they are doing is tightening skin and changing cosmetic appearances rather than truly stopping the degeneration of tissues that come with age. There is no amount of topical creams and elixirs that can actually stop aging. True anti-aging is currently being researched in the labs, and foundations like the SENS Foundation is coming close to finding anti-aging remedies. However, they could not even come close to this feat without the help of investors like Jason Hope.

In 2010, Jason Hope started his donations to the SENS Foundation with a $500,000 deposit to help with building a new lab in England. Since then, SENS has been able to make some real progress on new AGE-breaking technology. AGE is an acronym for advanced glycation end-products, which are essentially the cells within our body that can cause aging. New technologies are being created to target and destroy these AGEs. The foundation is also working to stop diseases that cause degeneration of the body and brain, such as Alzheimer’s since this is probably the easiest way to stop rapid aging at the source.

Jason Hope was attracted to this foundation for many reasons. He has always been a futurist and lover of new and innovative technologies. Hope liked the fact that this foundation is not simply working to create a new topical cream that promises everlasting youth. He likes that the foundation is working with the scientific community to find a cure for real problems. He also likes that they are working at anti-aging in a way that many other companies have not even thought of. Since 2010, Hope has donated an additional $1 million to the cause, and his philanthropy does not look like it is going to stop anytime soon. Jason Hope’s Hard Line Stance on the Internet of Things

Being a lover of the future and technology has also caused Jason Hope to spend his gains, mainly earned from investing in new and innovative startup companies, in several other science-based philanthropies. In his short time since graduating from Arizona State, he has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to the True Colors Fund, the Arizona Science Center, Family Health International, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Boys & Girls Club, and the Tony Hawk Foundation. With entrepreneurs and philanthropists like Jason Hope out there supporting causes like SENS, fearing the future is no longer something we have to do. Jason Hope Pledges $500,000

Dr. David Samadi Gives His Insight Regarding Prostate Surgery

In recent news, the former presidential nominee, Mitt Romney revealed that he had prostate surgery last summer to remove his prostate due to a diagnosis of prostate cancer. The surgery was performed by Dr. Thomas Ahlering at UC Irvine Hospital. This type of cancer is most common in men who are over the age of 65 and is reported to affect 164,690 individuals yearly. In addition to Mitt Romney, the former Secretary of State Colin Powell was also treated for prostate cancer in 2003. John Kerry also received the same diagnosis in 2002. He had prostate surgery and he has been clear of cancer ever since. When it comes to treatment for prostate surgery, there are usually two options for treatment. The patient can choose to have prostate surgery or they can elect to have radiation treatment.

According to Dr. David Samadi, he believes that Mitt Romney’s prognosis is good and he is not expected to develop further issues after his surgery. He goes on to say that after the staging of the cancer if the prostate cancer has not spread and is localized, he would recommend surgery as opposed to radiation. Dr. David Samadi also goes on to point out that statistically, if a man elects to have surgery if the cancer is localized, then he will have almost a 100% chance of survival as opposed to radiation, which gives the patient a 30% chance of survival if cancer spreads after treatment.

Dr. David Samadi is a world-renowned surgeon and is the and is in the top of his field in urology. He is also the Director of the Robotic Laparoscopic Surgery Department of Urology at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital.

George Soros Gives $18 Billion To Open Society Foundations

Billionaire philanthropist and hedge fund manager George Soros has recently given one the largest personal donations ever to a charitable foundation. He has transferred $18 billion to his Open Society Foundations (OSF), making it the third largest foundation in the world. The foundation currently ranks behind the Bill And Melinda Gates Foundation and the Wellcome Trust.

This donation brings Soros’s lifetime charitable donations to over $32 billion. It also reduces his personal wealth to just over $23 billion, according to estimates. Soros started the Open Society Foundations in 1979 and during its lifetime it has given away more than $14 billion. The sole purpose of OSF is to “build vibrant and tolerant democracies” across the globe.

Soros and OFS have recently turned their attention to the United States. They see the rise of White Nationalism and the election of Donald Trump as threats to American Democracy. OFS has invested in efforts to protect the LGBT community and to help decrease the number of police brutality incidents. It is no secret the George Soros has been one of the biggest donors to the Democratic party in America. During the last presidential election, Soros pledged more than $26 million to Super PACs that supported Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

The Open Society Foundations is not just involved in political matters. During the Ebola outbreak in 2014 the foundation funded treatment centers. It also gave funding for a Roma arts and culture center. After the 2016 presidential election, the foundation made efforts to protect citizens from what it called “a national wave of hate incidents.” Soros himself has a unique perspective on human rights. He was born in Hungary and lived through the Nazi invasion of his country and then through the Soviet occupation. His family fled Hungary and Soros ended up in London as a refugee.

He attended the London School of Economics and began his business career there. He made his fortune by betting against the British Pound in 1992. Since then Soros has become one of the most well-known philanthropists in the world. He has continually pressed for transparent and accountable governments around the world. He has used large portion of his personal fortune to promote human rights and democracy across the globe.

In the past, George Soros had funded OSF with annual gifts of $800 -900 million, but over the last few years, those donations increased dramatically. It is expected that he will give OSF $2 billion over the next few years.

Lime Crime’s Special Formula for Makeup and Expansion

Lime Crime is not only cruelty-free, vegan makeup, it’s also vivid, luminous, and youthful. Los Angeles-based e-commerce brand, Lime Crime, was launched by Doe Deere in 2008; one might say it exploded onto the scene like a radiant color bomb, bringing not only guilt-free products to consumers, but also beautiful, vibrant ones.

Lime Crime discovered they had a large market in China before ever even launching their brand overseas. By learning that fake versions of their makeup were being gobbled up by Chinese consumers, they realized they already had a base. “We found that we had over a million units of our [lip topper] product that were counterfeit sold through marketplaces in China last year.” That was a statement by Kim Walls, global general manager for Lime Crime, quoted in a WARC article by Reed Karaim, titled, “Lime Crime’s formula for entering the Chinese market.”

Perhaps we are accustomed to hearing about the Chinese market, but we don’t realize how complex it can be for a company to extend their business there. There were many factors for Lime Crime to consider, not least of which was a government mandate stating that makeup products sold in China must have been tested on animals. In regard to the complications, WARC quoted Walls as saying, “Looking at China, one of the things I knew based on prior experience is that we couldn’t sell in any of the ways that I knew how to sell.” Since Lime Crime is vegan and does not involve animals, they had to overcome this, and they did that by selling directly from the United States.

Revolve is an online clothing, accessory, and makeup retailer that partnered with Lime Crime to be their exclusive selling platform within the Chinese market. Lime Crime nudged its Chinese fans in the direction of Revolve in order to build their consumer base, as well as reinforce the fact that Revolve was the only place to purchase the genuine Lime Crime product in China. This was a wonderful example of brands working together to reach out globally with a united perspective.

The Audacious and Philanthropic Journalists, Larkin and Lacey

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey are newsmen who are known for speaking against injustices. Their courage to speak through the Phoenix New Times enraged Sheriff Joe Arpaio (Maricopa County).

The former sheriff ordered the Maricopa County Selective Enforcement Unit to arrest Larkin and Lacey. Arpaio was against the two journalists because of disclosing his misdeed and exposing details about a grand jury investigation.

The Proceeds From The Arrest

Arpaio’s injustices included the death of detainees, extralegal campaigns against his political foes, contempt of the Latinos living and working in his county, and orders to shackle expectant mothers during childbirths.

The arrest which happened ten years ago saw the two journalists get $3.75Million, following a lawsuit against Maricopa County for wrongful arrests. The duo used the money to set up Frontera Fund a nonprofit that works to uphold the rights of immigrants and migrants.

President Donald Trump recently pardoned Arpaio sparing him a possible jail term. The former sheriff had been summoned for criminal contempt of court from the Melendres vs. Arpaio suit.

The case is a landmark federal civil rights lawsuit. Larkin following the pardon admits that Arpaio is a great politician having endorsed Trump, but a terrible sheriff. Lacey sees the pardon as a way that Trump is using to build a strong base with the nationalist who view Arpaio as a hero.

More about Lacey and Larkin

Michael Lacey grew up in Newark New Jersey and attended Arizona State University. The audacious journalist has won many awards such as 2011 James Aronson Award for Social Justice Journalism. Jim Larkin was born in Phoenix and attended Arizona State University where he met Lacey.

Lacey together with other students published Phoenix New Times in 1970 following the killing of four students by the Ohio National Guardsmen. Lacey and his partners felt that the local newspapers did not adequately cover the campus antiwar protest.

The New Times was a free weekly paper that covered the social and political issues, culture and music. It became prominent amongst the alternative newspapers and Jim Larkin joined the group.

The Rise of the Entrepreneurs

Lacey was working as the executive editor of the paper while Larkin worked as the publisher. In 1983, they managed to acquire Westword, a Denver weekly news and art paper. The two businessmen later purchased other 17 papers that include Village Voice (New York City), LA Weekly and Miami New Times.

The New Times Inc became Village Voice Media (VVM), an award-winning media house. Pulitzer Prize is one of the prestigious awards that VVM has been awarded. The successful venture was sold in 2012 with 56 million online views and nine million print readers every month.

The philanthropic Journalists

Other than speaking up against injustices and carrying out investigative journalism, Lacey and Larkin are known for supporting groups that advocate for the rights of Latinos and Hispanics. Through the Frontera Fund, they have donated money to over ten charities that support immigrants’ rights.

The two are also known for condemning the calls to end DACA. Some organizations that they have helped include CNL, ADAC, Aliento, Phoenix Immigrant Justice Project and Kino Border Initiative.

Jeff Yastine: Making Light Of Regulatory Technology

The need for compliance officers and compliance departments within our work places happens very often. Their main goal is to prevent organizations from violating important government regulations. Thus is especially important when our governments adds new regulations or changed the existing ones. No one wants to be responsible for an organization being penalized for any type of government violation, as a violation can cost an organization a lot of money.

These regulations and changes do not always just effect the organization. These changes can also effect consumers too. There are affects in business expenses that trickle down to dropping stock prices.

Thus is partly because of the high cost of compliance four businesses. Compliance can cost financial institutions up to $65 billion dollars or more per year. They are also thinking thus number will rise by 2020, with financial institutions spending an average of $118 billion dollars in compliance costs.

Regulatory technology can help greatly reduce these costs associated with compliance. Regulatory technology comes in the form of computer software. Investors should stick with firms that use this technology for compliance.

Regtech companies are very small right now, and many of them have not even made anyone a share holder of their company. The organization whom are heavily regulated will benefit most from this regulatory technology. The more organizations that understand how this technology can work for them, the more money these organizations will save in costs for compliance.

The good news is that most government agencies just started learning about regulatory technology, and are looking to include them as part of the compliance regulations. This has become reality in America, Britain, and Singapore, and could very well become reality with many other government agencies.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi To Replace Lazaro Brando As Chairman of Bradesco

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi will be taking over as the Chairman Of Bradesco, the second largest private bank in Brazil. Lázaro de Mello Brandão who had spent the last 75 years of his professional life working for the Bradesco Group, recently announced that he would be resigning the post at the age of 91 years.

Lázaro de Mello Brandão will continue to lead the group stakes and holdings, however, after March 2018, a new CEO will be announced to take over Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s old post. The Bradesco Group has a long-standing history of appointing CEOs from the existing group of board members instead of hiring a new candidate external to the bank.

Under the rules of the Bradesco Group’s charter, the age for retirement of the president is set at 65 years, which is one year lesser than Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s current age, but since he was granted a waiver until the next year, he will not be altogether exercising this age limit. One of the main reasons Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s was selected for the Chairman’s post was because of his impeccable work history and due to his dedication shown to the Bradesco bank over the last many years. He commenced his career path a bit over 48 years ago and had committed his entire life to working for this Brazilian bank. He has headed various core departments within Bradesco and was also the Investor Relations Officer from 1999 to 2009. He was also the Executive Vice President during the same tenure. Since 2017, he has been a Chairman of the Board of Directors and is working continually to aid in the overall growth and development of the bank.

Most people have been wondering, what’s next for the Bradesco group and who will take over the role of the CEO now that Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has been appointed the Chairman? Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi stated in a conference, that while the appointment might happen before March, the process of the replacement must undergo its due course and the executive to replace him as the president has not yet been selected.

Various candidates have been selected from the existing workforce of the bank to take over Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s role as the CEO until then Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi will be working in both positions. One of the candidate names that was quoted by O Estado de S, a Brazilian publication, was of Mauricio Minas as he has been a pioneer and leader of the technological growth that Bradesco has seen in the last few years. Mauricio Minas was also mostly responsible for the merger with HSBC as well as the creation of the bank’s virtual banking system.

The decision, however, has not yet been made and the other six vice presidents that are shortlisted as candidates for the CEO’s post include Domingos Figueiredo de Abreu, Josué Augusto Pancini, Octavio of Lazari Junior, Alexandre da Silva Glüher, Bradesco Seguros and Marcelo de Araújo Noronha. Alexandre da Silva Glüher is considered as a kingpin especially during the merger with HSBC, along with Josué Pancini who has significant experience being the vice president of Bradesco. Each of these candidates has been heading their respective departments within the organization for extended periods of time and have vast experience and field knowledge to make them excellent choices for the new post.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi would have a choice in selecting his replacement for Bradesco’s CEO, and it is expected that the talented individual with vast experience in leadership in diverse areas as well as experience with corporate governance structure will be selected.

Securus Technologies and Its Wireless Containment Solutions

There are wonderful articles to read every day, but are they worth your time? Are they ridiculously helpful that you can’t just help but apply what you read in real life? This is something that we want to address. To do that, what we will offer you is a precautionary tale of the dangers of the modern life we live today where an incarcerated person can contact from inside and try to sabotage your life. In short, we will share with you an article about Securus Technologies and the story of Robert Johnson.

The Tragedy of Robert Johnson That Almost Cost Him His Life

In the NBC Miami report, it was shown that one of the biggest problems of people working in corrections offices is the fact that the officers can risk their lives. This is the case that happened to Robert Johnson. He was a corrections officer who when he went home got shot because of a malicious order to kill him inside the prison.

This wouldn’t have been possible if there was interference or a firewall inside the cell. This preventable event could have been prevented if there was a way that the inmates in the jail won’t have a way to connect with the people outside.

It should also be noted here that Robert Johnson worked at the Lee Correctional Institution in South California when this incident happened.

I guess he was so good at doing his job that he was able to even to get shot after work hours. This could even remind us of the TV show The Wire, where the inmates have a connection outside, and they can just command people to kill someone that is a hindrance to their drug operations. It’s fantastic and beguiling to know that Robert Johnson feels like living the life of a TV show character.

The PRNewswire Report on The Solutions

It is because of the issues like the one above that Securus Technologies have created the Wireless Containment Solutions today. In the PRNewswire article, it was reported that there is now a new series of innovative solutions from Securus that will be able to easily prevent calls from coming outside of the jail cells.

This is remarkably a wonderful improvement that will change a whole great deal of how the entire security protection would be employed.

I also think that the fact that Robert Johnson now already works for Securus Technologies also means that he has finally received the support and recovery that he badly needs.

That said, I think it’s important to support causes like the ones being initiated by Securus. Security is such an important and critical issue, especially in the connected world we live in now.
