Jason Hope Pledges $500,000 for SENS Research

CEO of SENS Foundation (Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence), Mike Kope, announced that Jason Hope pledged to contribute $500,000 to further the Foundation’s research in rejuvenation biotechnologies. The central focus of the Foundation is to apply this research to fight age-related disease.

Jason Hope is a highly recognized entrepreneur who is based in Scottsdale, Arizona. His philanthropic ventures encompass medical research and seeking disease cures, education, and computer technology with a special focus on the “internet of things.” Read more about Jason Hope at Wings Journal.

SENS Foundation was formed in 2009 for the express purpose of enabling rejuvenation research. The intent behind the research is to allow for repairing, or avoiding, the damage caused by the body’s normal metabolism as we age, so that no debilitating or even deadly pathologies arise.

It was through the Foundation’s Dr. Aubrey de Grey that Jason Hope found his interest in SENS Foundation piqued, inspiring him to make a generous donation. Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, lung disease and atherosclerosis, are just four of the diseases that affect aging Americans in large numbers.

With the half-million-dollar donation combined with other significant donations, SENS Foundation was able to create the Cambridge SENS Laboratory. With many worthy causes to choose from, Jason Hope advises others to consider several factors when making a decision to donate; these all figured in his contribution to SENS. His initial factor calls for one to discover their passions. In his case, the desire to aid in medical research was a driving reason for the donation to SENS Foundation. The other elements on his “list” are: whether an organization is local or national; the ability to donate time, money or both; and the importance of researching benefactor of a donation.

The legacy of Jason Hope’s contribution to SENS Foundation can already be seen in the furthering of its AGE-breaker development program. AGE is actually an acronym that stands for “advanced glycation end” products. These add to the degenerative process that can lead to development of the previously mentioned disease in addition to arthritis, osteoporosis, and Parkinson’s. While previous research did not yield significant results, it was discovered that humans have a different type of AGE than other animals (tissue of which was studied in research). Now, with these additional funds from contributors, research can continue with the specific study of human reaction to therapies that can negate the AGE’s in causing degenerative disease in aging adults.

Felipe Montoro Jens Knows What He’s Reporting

On March 24, 2018, a special meeting occurred in Mendoza, Argentina concerning the Inter-American Development Bank’s (IDB) support for private investments being used in infrastructure projects all over Latin America. Leading the argument in favor of private investments was Dyogo Oliveira, the Minister of Planning, Development, and Management.

The key to his argument was the importance of utilizing a financial mechanism to leverage more investments. It’s common knowledge that private investors can invest more substantial amounts faster than public or federal investors. The reporter recapping the story was Felipe Montoro Jens, an infrastructure projects expert.

When people started reading his articles about Latin America’s changing infrastructure, his name quickly shot to the top of the list for reporters people wanted to hear from. His coverage of the Special Meeting of Governors is one of the most detail and profound. Because of his expertise, he was able to represent Oliveira’s argument accurately. You can find Montoro Jens on Twitter @felipemontoroj to continue the conversation.

Oliveira didn’t go into the mission without support. The Finance Minister and Chairman of the Bank’s Board of Governors, Luis Caputo supported Dyogo. He also had the support of Garrido, the Secretary of State for Economy and Business Support of Spain. Spain is one of Brazil’s largest investing partners.

Everything Oliveira talked about pointed to preparing Latin America for the next industrial revolution. He wants to repair and change the infrastructure so that they can better reap the rewards of the Industry 4.0 Revolution. Overall, these investments should be used to help repair road, bridges, and water utilities.

As proof private investments are the right direction, he used Brazil’s Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) as an example. Brazil has already started looking for alternative investment sources, and it’s proven to be great for Latin America.

Jose Auriemo Neto and JHSF prove private sector can handle major infrastructure

It is often thought that the private sector is not able to adequately carry-out large public infrastructure projects. But one of the arguments used by libertarians for smaller government has always been that the private sector is, in fact, just as capable of carrying out large-scale public infrastructure projects as the government. Many of these projects, including toll roads, have long been proven means by which the private sector is able to compete with the government, and do so successfully, in areas where the results matter and the public good is on the line.

One real-world laboratory for these principles to be tried out has been the country of Brazil. Having long suffered from a weak and corrupt government, Brazil has turned to the private sector to complete a large number of infrastructure projects that otherwise would never have gotten done by the hand of the government itself. One of the areas in which we see this recurring is the construction of new airports. The government has long been inept at constructing sufficient airport facilities to handle the large volume of air traffic that the country of Brazil naturally attracts due to a beautiful beaches and other natural features that make it a favorite of tourists and vacationers across the globe.

One example of how the private sector in Brazil is stepping up and completing projects that the government is incapable of carrying out is the construction of the Sao Paulo Catarina Executive Airport. This large airport facility was completed by JHSF Participacoes and its owner, Jose Auriemo Neto. The project features a 7,500-foot runway as well as a luxury terminal facility, which includes a number of high-end shopping options as well as many of the area’s best restaurants. This airport provides a much-needed source of relief from the highly congested airport facilities located throughout Sao Paulo.

With the completion of the Sao Paulo Catarina Executive Airport, those coming to the Sao Paulo area in their private jets have a genuinely easy way of getting in and out of Sao Paulo in a matter of minutes.
