Jason Hope: American IOT

What we perceive today as “smart” technology will be a thing of the past very quickly. It was not too long ago actually that we saw the advancement of phones basically overnight in terms of technological advancement. One day in 2005 we are awing at an incredible reversing selfie camera, today just a decade later, along with the aid of Bluetooth technology embedded in most devices, we practically run our homes through our mobile devices. Many share their vision of the future but only a few hold credibility in this particular field. Jason Hope is an entrepreneur and self-proclaimed “futurist” who often shares his vision of the future and the key component IOT. More about of Jason Hope at City Scene.

It is crucial that technology doesn’t only provide us with fun toys, but chances our safety as well. Jason Hope sees a near future where airliners will be continuously connected to ground supervision in a mechanical sense. Any small or serious issue dealing with a airliners parts would signal a quick response from mechanics on the ground to collect the necessary parts as soon as possible.

While safety is a key goal for many airliners, Jason hope understands that their focus will also be on the probability that IOT can bring. Air Asia is already implementing this technology to understand exactly how much or how little fuel they need to meet their bottom line, and he sees many of the American airliners to take notice and implement them in the near future.

Although he likes to look to the future, Jason Hope doesn’t just talk the talk, he also makes sure that his words have action behind them. In 2010, Jason hope donated $500,000 dollars to the SNES to push further research in ant-aging. When asked why the donation, Hope commented that SNES does more than just study anti-aging creams, but look into preventing diseases that speed aging and cause early death.

Hope continues to inspire us to look forward and allows us to partake in that endeavor with him if we wish to have a future and past to be proud of.

His solution is to form a task force that will involve Jews from all over the place to denounce and take physical action if necessary against the antisemitic forces, and philanthropists Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban have both expressed support of this.

Sahm Adrangi Releases a Negated Report on Kodak and Its Cryptocurrency Venture

Kerrisdale Capital Management has released a negative report on Eastman Kodak Company. The private investing company explained its short position in the commercial print company. According to t Kerrisdale Capital, Kodak announced the launch of its photo-centric cryptocurrency as well as the blockchain-activated licensing program. While the blockchain is rewarding and has the potential to grow many industries, KodakOne is dishonest about the 187% rise in stock it has registered since the commencement of the cryptocurrency business.

The Kodak Report

Sahm Adrangi, the head cheerleader of Kerrisdale Capital negated the Kodak report for the following reasons:

  • KodakOne’s plan to utilize the cryptocurrency platform to solve copyright issues was not viable. He termed it as flat out silly.
  • His report indicates that hashing the images through cryptocurrency would not protect them from copyright issues. He also added that photographers would instead be paid in cash than in Kodak coins.
  • The new business proposal by Kodak is false investment bait. Despite the cases of assurance from Kodak, the business idea is not economically, viable. The cryptocurrency platform will not detect irregularities.
  • Sahm Adrangi continued to state that the cryptocurrency idea is Kodak’s way of capitalizing on the blockchain. Given that Kodak is already experiencing technical issues before launching the business, it is bound to fail.


It is not the first time Sahm Adrangi has blown the whistle on a large corporation. The chief investment officer of Kerrisdale is used to questioning the sole intention of large corporations. Adrangi first made a name for himself when he blew the whistle on large Chinese corporations. Among the companies he exposed are China-Biotics and Lihua International.


Sahm Adrangi founded Kerrisdale Capital Management LLC in 2009. He has since been involved in the firm’s development after investing about $1 million. Adrangi’s leadership has grown Kerrisdale’s revenue to more than $150 million. Before founding Kerrisdale Capital, Adrangi worked for Longacre Fund Management LLC, the Deutsche Bank and finally, Chanin Capital Partners. The alumnus of Yale University studied economics and arts. He is well versed in investment skills and hedge fund management.


IDLife seeks to end obesity and cases of overweight in America

A study conducted on the United States’ population by Centers for Disease Control showed that over 70 percent of men and 65 percent of women are either obese or overweight. This is attributed to the fact that many people consider this condition as just something physical. But the truth is that being overweight or obese poses great health threats.

Besides, being overweight or obese has adverse effects on one’s job experience, relationships, and literally affects ones day-to-day activities. Also, physicians have concluded that overweight or obesity increased the tendency of contracting cardiovascular illnesses, diabetes, cancer, and arthritis, among other diseases.

Such problems could be avoided if there was a provision of personalized prescription of nutrition to help individuals avoid ending up being overweight or obese. This is the reason why IDLife was founded. The founder of IDLife, Logan Stout realized that the health and wellness industry was worth billion dollars, but the problem was the available products were disappointing.

New products hit the market almost daily, but the users were still not getting what they wanted. The results they were promised were not forthcoming. Due to this fact, Logan figured out that perhaps by introducing nutrition services that will be customized according to the customer’s needs, would eventually solve the problem, and so IDLife was born.

Basically, IDLife is a company that offers personalized health and wellness nutritional supplements based on each customer’s requirements. IDLife appreciates the fact that whenever there are two individuals, their needs are unique. And this is what made IDLife penetrate into this billion dollar industry.

The fact that people still experience problems that hundreds or even thousand companies manufacturing and marketing nutritional supplements claim to be solving is enough to show that their claims are not valid. For this reason, IDLife was founded in distinct pillars that have made it stand out in the crowd.

First, IDLife is trying to offer targeted services that solve individual challenges at a time. Secondly, the company is backed by motivated investors and skilled leaders who know what they are doing. The company also boasts of high-quality products, thanks to their extensive research and implementation of scientific findings.

About Logan Stout

Logan Stout is an entrepreneur, mentor, and former athlete. Since his youth days, Logan had nursed a desire to help people achieve their goals and a happy life. Perhaps this led to his creation of IDLife that has perfectly blended with the needs of the masses.

Logan went to Panola College where he earned his degree in business and later topped it with a major in Psychology from the University of Dallas.
