When it comes to aging graciously, people in biblical times had it better than modern man. The first man, Adam, as the good old book says, lived up to nearly 1,000 years old before he met the grim ripper. And then things came tumbling down. In the past centuries, the average age of humans before they close their life chapters was around 50 plus years old. Coming down to our time, statistics indicate that we are improving. Now, they say it is about 70 or so. If Jason hope gets his way, this generation could still prolong their stay here on earth longer than 70 years old – with better qualities of life.Who is Jason Hope? Hope is an investor, a successful entrepreneur, philanthropist and futurist. We should be interested in his work as a philanthropist and futurist. He is born and raised in Tempe, Arizona.
Hope earned his degree in finance from the Arizona State University. He took graduate studies later and got his MBA degree at the same university, particularly at W.P. Carey School. After college, he applied what he learned in school and gained recognition in the business community. Today, he is a sought-after business pundit whose advice and opinion is valued by his peers and students.Hope is the kind of businessman that desires to put his money into charitable projects. After securing his position in the business community, Hope started venturing in philanthropy work. Currently, he is one of the major donors of SENS Research Foundation.
This charitable institution is involved in “Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence” (SENS) research. In layman’s terms, this non-profit organization’s work is to develop an industry of biotechnology rejuvenation that can develop anti-aging drugs through the collaboration of a broad-spectrum of damage-repair experts.Hope has donated around $500,000 to this foundation in 2010, making him one of its largest contributors. With this kind of money, SENS was able to buy the facilities and equipment necessary to build its laboratory in Cambridge where it could conduct its researches. The foundation’s approach to anti-aging is different from that of traditional medical science. Their primary goal is to find cures for illnesses that break down the human body that in turn cause humans to age faster. For instance, heart, lung and Alzheimer’s disease adversely affect all bodily functions and mainstream medicine treats them after they are diagnosed. The goal of SENS is to find ways to stop these illnesses before they happen.

Paul Mampilly is an investor who is always looking into future tech and mega trends whenever he looks for good stock purchases, and he went from big banks to now writing newsletters where he tells middle class people what they should look for in the stock market. One of his latest topics was digital currency and how Bitcoin made a major surge in 2017. Mampilly said that although he likes the idea behind Bitcoin, he’s decided not to buy its stocks. One reason is because Bitcoin has grown so popular that it’s now becoming inflated. Mampilly says this stock has a bubble just like the dot-com bubble of 2000 and the housing bubble of 2008, and at some point as the demand falls out there will be a major price correction resulting in a Bitcoin crash. It won’t happen all at once, but over time it will fall. Mampilly says instead that buyers should look at another digital currency that he explains in his private newsletters.
The big banks Paul Mampilly worked for prior to publishing stock articles include ING, Deutsche Bank, Banker’s Trust, Royal Bank of Scotland and Sears. He holds a degree in finance and economics from Montclair State University, and a master’s from Fordham. After starting out in research, Mampilly became a portfolio manager and soon he was earning accolades for finding investments for clients that brought high yields. Mampilly was asked to bring his investment knowledge to Kinetics International Fund where the investments he made for clients made returns reaching over 40%. Barron’s even called Kinetics International as one of the world’s best investment firms at the time.
Paul Mampilly was also in the Templeton Foundation investment competition in 2008 where he took $50 million and put it into stocks that actually performed well during the recession’s toughest time. He won the competition upon making a 76% return on that investment. Mampilly has made investments in other early-stage companies including Sarepta Therapeutics, Netflix, Facebook and others. It wasn’t long ago that he retired from big banking because he felt they really didn’t help the people who needed it the most, and he also wanted a little more time with his own family. He met the editors of Banyan Hill and felt what their publishing company offered was what he wanted to offer to followers. His investment information can be found in his main three newsletters “Profits Unlimited,” “Extreme Fortunes” and “True Momentum.”
The studies conducted by researchers in the field of health are continually updated to show the current rate of fatalities as they relate to specific health conditions. These studies show that many of these fatalities could be avoided through preventative health care steps such as those provided by Life Line Screening. Researchers have found heart disease to be the number one killer of both male and female adults. This is a fatality that could be prevented with basic diet and lifestyle changes. The screenings provided by Life Line could help point people in the direction they need to go in order to prevent a potentially fatal episode such as a heart attack or stroke.
Since statistics show that one in four deaths among adults is related to heart disease, it would be beneficial for people to get a screening even if they do not have a family history of heart disease. There have been many reported cases where the death was attributed to the person’s first and only heart attack. In some instances the factors that put a person at risk could be found in their lifestyle choices. The professionals at Life Line Screening could assist individuals in making the type of lifestyle choices that could not only improve the quality of their life, but also prolong it.
Research studies have also shown that people who have testing done for cardiovascular conditions are more likely to follow through with positive lifestyle changes. The team at Life Line Screening can assist individuals by performing a wide range of tests including blood panels for cholesterol levels and screening for carotid artery disease. Unfortunately, most people who experience the symptoms associated with clogged or weakened arteries usually dismiss it as nothing more than a twinge of pain. Having a professional screening could actually save someone’s life.
The fact is, that a lot of fatalities associated with cardiovascular conditions or heart disease, could be avoided through preventative measures. These measures begin with the type of screenings offered through a licensed facility such as Life Line Screening. The process of preventative screening is designed to be quick and comfortable, while still retaining superior quality through the use of state-of-the-art technology. This process could make the person aware of a potentially fatal condition they did not know existed. This is the type of motivation people need in order to make choices that will allow them to have healthier, happier lives.
