Jason Hope Donates Big To Anti-Aging

Jason Hope is an entrepreneur who has been a major contributor for the past multiple years in the search for results of different anti-aging products.

Jason Hope recently donated a whopping amount of money which came to a grand total of $500,000. This was donated to the SENS Research Foundation in 2010. Through such a generous donation by Jason Hope, the organization was able to get their feet wet and get the program off the ground like they always intended, they just had lacked in the funding department.

After the foundation got the ball rolling, they started to do more testing and came out with a new program called AGE-breaker. As you can probably guess the program helps with the anti-aging process. It works by targeting certain areas within the body that either loses their elasticity or size over time and works in a way of reversing this process. In order for a treatment or drug to fit into the AGE-breaker category, it must have the ability to break down advanced glycation end products, which are also known as AGE’s. To explain a little deeper, AGE’s are a type of metabolic waste that is built up over time and can cause harm to the body and this leads to the degenerative process of aging. These AGE’s are also linked to many diseases and problems that are developed as a person gets older, things like Alzheimer’s, arthritis, osteoporosis, and many others.

In the past, many different companies who were doing testing with AGE’s were not finding any results that would be beneficial to humans because all of the tests were always done on small living animals. The results were not able to translate over to humans because of the size comparison and the life expectancy.

Because of these past results, philanthropists like Jason Hope are really able to help out the new program, as they were able to carry out extended tests that were much safer than previously thought. The company now focuses on degenerative diseases and is discovering new treatments all the time for different problems, all thanks to Jason Hope.

Jason Hope is an entrepreneur and investor from Arizona. He loves to help the local community. He is a believer of technology.

Betsy DeVos Continues To Fight For Educational Choice Rights For All Americans

Betsy DeVos was recently named the Secretary of Education for the United States, and her resolve has already been tested. Those who watched her confirmation hearings might have been surprised by the way that her detractors treated her. While many other people may have crumbled under the pressure, she stayed calm and collected, as she always does, and was able to get through the proceedings. Those who are close to Mrs. DeVos commented that she was a bit bothered by her treatment during the confirmation hearings but that she got over it rather quickly once it was over.

 

Betsy DeVos was tested a second time when president Trump decided to rescind a federal policy that allowed transgender students to use a bathroom of their choice based on their gender identity. While one of her aids commented that DeVos didn’t agree with the decision, she remained quiet. She did decide to meet with a gay and transgender representative for the employees at the department of education to let them know that the law was about to be rescinded. In the end, DeVos joined the president as the announcement was made.

 

Many politicians and lawmakers have mistaken Betsy DeVos’s kind demeanour and public civility as weakness and have paid dearly for it. In Michigan, she has been known to be relentless when going after her goals and has used her wealth to reward her friends and punish her detractors. Mike Cox, a former state attorney general, commented, on the record, that DeVos is not someone to be trifled with and that he has always found her to be a focused and uncompromising woman who fights to achieve the goals she has set.

 

Betsy DeVos is a businesswoman who was born in Holland, Michigan. She worked in her father’s auto parts store when she was younger and attended Calvin College where she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in business economics. After discovering she had an interest in politics while in college, she decided to serve as the chairman for the Michigan Republican Party for six years. She has also been a large part of many different efforts to pass legislation that supports educational choice.

 

Betsy DeVos has fought for three decades to divert tax dollars that would be normally used to pay for public schools to be used to pay the tuitions of kids who attend private or charter schools. Since many Americans cannot afford to send their kids to a school of their choice, she wants to help them out. Many underprivileged children who come from poor families have already benefited from the legislation she has helped to pass, and she continues to work just as hard as ever to support many others who want the same.
