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.

The Road to Recovery with Victoria Doramus

Victoria Doramus is an addiction and recovery expert who shares her story and personal experiences with the world. She inspires so many who are overcoming their own struggles to find the beauty in recovery.

In 2011, when Victoria Doramus was twenty-six years old, she went to rehab for the first time. She knew her life was going downhill, but knew nothing about the disease of addiction. Victoria spent 45 days in a rehab facility in Tuscan, Arizona and then moved states several times, hitting rock bottom and desperate to do whatever it took to get her life back together.

Five years later, she moved back to New York City determined to prove to her dying mother that she could overcome her addiction, but fell deeper and deeper hitting rock bottom. She reached a point where she was homeless without family or friends and would visit doctor after doctor doing whatever she could to stay high. She was consuming over a bottle of amphetamine pills a day and didn’t see a way out of it… she felt imprisoned.

In 2016, Victoria Doramus was desperate with no family or friends and got arrested. She was willing to do whatever it took to get sober, which was when she flew to Austin, Texas to begin a long-term treatment program. This new program was unlike the others she had been to, in that it was similar to a boot camp, where you wake up early each day for prayer and meditation, then complete your chores and then head to mandatory group sessions. At night, there would be AA meetings that forced her to acknowledge her behaviors and choices and become more self-aware.

Victoria, the fashion expert, spent 8 months at this twelve step facility, when she left and went to live in a halfway house in Dallas where she was required to work 30-40 hours a week and attend at least 5 meetings a week. She got a job waiting tables where she soon became self-sufficient. After four months, she was able to afford a plane ticket to Nashville, TN to see her mother who was now living in assisted living.

Currently, Victoria Doramus lives in New York City where she is involved with several non-profit addiction organizations. She is still actively involved in AA and works hard every day to stay on track, helping others with the same problems she experienced. Victoria hopes to start a halfway house in New York City that caters to people who struggle with addiction and who want to have a new life. She plans to follow the same principles she learned from her previous treatment center.

The best advice she would give to others, is that “you are the only one who can change your life and that change is possible, no matter how far you’ve fallen.” She says that once she stopped playing the victim and acknowledged her mistakes, she was able to heal and learn from them.

Newark New Jersey Welcomes Shaquille O’Neal And Boraie Development To Build High-Rise Luxury Apartments

The Boraie Difference

 

 

For many Real Estate Development Moguls, the risk of building in areas that are far less than ‘prime’ locations is too high. Many investors aren’t willing to wager their deep pockets on something that could essentially fail. This is where Boraie Development deviates from the typical developer. In the real estate arena, there are many areas that are failing due to the lack of new builds. The Boraie Team changed that, with deliberately seeking out build sites in distressed areas, to hopefully encourage growth in the local economy. Atlantic City, for example has many casinos, but 85% of the employees live outside of the city. Boraie has made the move when others refused, soon opening their brand new luxury residential Apartment Homes they hope to fill inside Atlantic City. For more details visit Crunchbase.

 

 

Urban Development At It’s Finest

 

 

Boraie Development is a large, privately owned real estate company that encompasses property management, new multi-level builds, as well as sales. Based in New Jersey, they focus on the the distressed areas in urban communities. By offering these beautiful homes, Boraie intends to promote economical stimulus. Areas like Newark and New Brunswick are notably struggling, and building large units for multiple residents this gives potential renters desirable options within the cities.

 

 

Shaquille O’Neal Proudly Dubs His $79M High-Rise “Shaq Towers”

 

 

One celebrity in particular has an absolute connection with Newark, New Jersey. A Legend in Basketball, Shaquille O’Neal is commonly referred to as the greatest player of all times. Now, he will be a legend in the Real Estate sector, with a 79 Million dollar high-rise going in that he himself invested in. The high-rise titled “Shaq Towers’ is the first of it’s kind to be built in the area in over fifty years. Shaq remembers the city he grew up in as a beautiful place, and he intends to recreate that beauty with this luxury apartment development. Partnering with Boraie, the future of Newark is optimistic with buildings such as this going in, and Shaq is proud to be a part of developing this site. Nearby is the newest addition to celebrity chef, Marcus Samuelsson’s cache of restaurants. Additionally the apartment homes will be within walking distance from major shopping centers, Whole Foods, and New Jersey Performing Arts Center. Check out pressofatlanticcity for more.

 

 

 

Going Once, Going Twice, GONE

 

 

Applications for leasing become available as early as September, and with Shaquille O’Neal and Boraie Development behind the magic, chances are the building will not stay vacant long. Due to the gorgeous homes that will be available, and the celebrity status of the investor, there will be no shortage of potential residents.

How SENS Foundation is using the donation provided by Jason Hope

Jason Hope joined the SENS Foundation to help continue the ongoing research on anti-aging medications. SENS Foundation started working on AGE-breakers, which are medications that help to eliminate the end products of advanced glycation. Since the AGE-breakers were only discovered in animals, researchers have made a discovery of the most common glycation end product in the body of a human. What was discovered was that glucosepane promotes aging and other several problems. More efforts are being put in place by SENS Foundation to find efficient ways of eliminating the substance from the veins and skins. Although further research has not been supported by the medical industry, Jason Hope has helped SENS to undertake more research through his donation.

Donations from people like Jason Hope is going to ensure the right talent, research and equipment are in place to enable the discovery of a way to eliminate glycation end-products. This is with the goal of changing how we age and extend the average lifespan of humans. Along the journey, there are obstacles that SENS are facing, and one of the obstacles is what De Grey refers to as the “pro-aging trance.” The idea behind this term is grounded in the fact that aging is a natural process that should be respected and desired. Jason Hope’s Hard Line Stance On the Internet of Things.

De Grey believes that “pro-aging trance” originates from the fear of growing old, such that it is seen as an unavoidable event. If we perceive it this way, then we will not be afraid of it as we move closer to death. But if you ask De Grey, he sees this process as counterproductive since it keeps the human race from finding ways to combat aging. The SENS Foundation and De Grey view aging just like any other condition that lowers the quality of a long life. What should happen to the medical field as De Grey resolves is to learn more about aging, and find alternative ways of preventing it.

Jason Hope jumped on the bandwagon by contributing $500,000 of his money to establish a lab program in the UK alongside expanding research on the anti-aging medication drug. SENS has made great partnerships with other organizations to work together to build a richer scientific community that will help to fight aging in a much better way. Other donors have also been following the developments in this field and they have also injected some donations for this research to stay alive.

Vijay Eswaran’s Book On Moments Of Silence

Sometimes you just need to stop everything, refocus your mind and refresh physically before continuing on with your day. Vijay Eswaran, an Asian businessman does this frequently because he believes meditation and moments of silence are great for his well-being. He wrote about them in a book called “In The Sphere Of Silencee” back in 2005, but he still talks about the book today because the world is so technology-driven that few people really take the time to reflect or consider what’s important. Eswaran’s book explains how you can get mentally prepared for the day through meditation and reflection rituals, and how just taking time even to listen to others opens your mind to new perspectives.

Vijay Eswaran is the Chairman of QI Group Ltd., a company he helped build back in 1998. Prior to that he grew up in Malaysia and earned his bachelor’s degree at the London School of Economics as well as an MBA from Southern Illinois University. What QI Group Ltd. employs is a multilevel marketing model which allows people to buy products and resell them to their own customers as well as make referrals to the independent business owner program. Its flagship companies are QNET, Q-Stride, QI Asset Management and Quex Courier. It also is the founding company and partner with the Malaysian government at QI University-Perak. Eswaran fought through financial hardship and even false claims against QI Group to build it into a billion-dollar company, but his work there and charity at RYTHM Foundation earned him a recognition as one of Forbes Asia’s 2011 “Heroes of Philanthropy” and their 2013 “Top 50 Most Wealthy.”

He’s also been a featured speaker at India’s 6th Pravasi Divas and the recipient of the Global Indian Meet community’s New Global Indian award. Eswaran and his wife are also the chairs of the Vijayratnam Foundation named in honor of his late father, and you can also hear more on Eswaran’s ideas on his various podcasts on international radio.
