A donation of $500,000 to SENS Research Foundation to work on rejuvenation technologies with the aim of coming up with an anti-aging drug came from philanthropist Jason Hope, who has been a major contributor for several years. The funds went to the construction of the Cambridge SENS Laboratory and the remainder to the research activities. Jason Hope and SENS have initiated AGE-Breaker, new development program aimed at coming up with the drug that will stop or reverse the aging process in human beings and correct or combat the negative effects of aging.

It must be able to break down advanced Glycation End Products, or AGEs, a metabolic waste that builds up in the body and leads to degenerative processes such as arthritis, osteoporosis, cancer, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and others. Arteriosclerosis, a hardening of the arteries, is also caused by age and is responsible for high blood pressure and diabetes. SENS Research Foundation, a non-profit organization, depends on private donations from philanthropists, researchers, scientists, and other passionate supporters to meet their goals. The non profit organization focuses on finding cures for the types of degenerative diseases that destroy the body and cause people to age faster than is necessary. Their mission is to eventually preserve mobility and improve the overall health of millions of people.

Every year SENS also holds a Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference where experts in different fields in the tech industry share ideas on how they can create such an anti-aging drug as well as ones for various other serious diseases. Jason Hope is an entrepreneur, an investor, gives advice and insights regarding biotechnology and science, and is a mentor for students and other entrepreneurs due to his financial expertise in business-related topics. Jason Hope is also busy researching what is likely to be happening in the tech industry and in disease breakthroughs in the present and upcoming days and wants to encourage as many donations as possible toward the lofty ideals that he believes in to such a high degree.

Some people seem to be lucky in life, particularly when it comes to predicting what the markets are going to do. Shervin Pishevar is one of those people. He’s a venture capitalist and has had success because of investing early on many tech companies.

He broke his Twitter silence during the first week of February with some market predictions.

Shervin Pishevar knew he was going to go on a tweet storm. He numbered all of his tweets to make it easier for everyone to follow what he was talking about.

The very first tweet provides the greatest prediction: The market will drop 6000 points in aggregate over the next few months. That poses a problem for investors. It means that not only will 2018 gains be lost but also dig into the 2017 gains.

What are people doing about it?

 

Well, it seems as though quite a few people follow Shervin Pishevar. He has over 90,000 followers on Twitter and some of these are blogs who have decided to share his message. As though he predicted the future, the market already showed signs of instability the very next day. Further, 500 points were lost within the hour.

Trump once said that if the market falls by 1,000 points in a single day, they should be booted out. Shervin Pishevar decided to launch the hashtag #dumptrump in response to that.

It seems as though the predictions of Shervin Pishevar are coming true. Investors have no where to hide because indices, bonds, and more are overvalued and losing points. Even bitcoin is crashing down, though Shervin estimates that it will do so for a while and then stabilize and grow stronger after a while.

While Shervin Pishevar can’t predict the future, he is good at reading trends. It seems as though he may be on to something with the way the market is currently looking.
