Jason Hope’s Contribution In The Fight Against Age-Related Diseases

The elderly are often plagued with many age-related diseases that impact their lives including movement and ability to make a better judgment. For many of them, these conditions contribute to some limitation in life as it takes a toll on their well being. Age-related disorders also increase the mortality rate of the elderly. Researchers, scientists, donors and medical practitioners have collaborated to help in reversing the aging process to overcome degenerative health issues.

Jason Hope is one such individual who has contributed to the research of age-related diseases by investing in biotechnology company called SENS Research Foundation. The non-profit foundation is committed to using innovative biotechnologies to develop anti-ageing medicine and therapy. Hope donated $500,000 to support the initiative that catered toward AGE-breaker research programs that aim at developing drugs in addition to treatment that will help to prevent the growth of metabolic wastes in the human body.

One of the primary causes of age-related diseases is the buildup of glycation end-products. This happens faster in people who have diabetes. It also happens to everyone and causes a lot of harm in the cells. AGEs disable the protein machinery by hammering on cell receptors that cause chronic inflammation. Initially, AGE-breaker drugs occurred before the current era of biotechnology development. It was not only laborious but sparingly used in patients regardless of promising animal studies. The research turned out to be necessary to humans.

According to Jason Hope, SENS Research Foundation is one of the organizations that can reduce the development of age-related diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s and arthritis among others. These infections are common in older people because of their slow metabolism. Hope’s contribution has inspired many researchers and donors to join the program and donate funds toward finding treatment solutions to prevent patients from acquiring these diseases.

Jason Hope grew up in Arizona. He joined Arizona State University for a degree in finance before heading to Carey School of Business for an MBA.

Matthew Fleeger : A tale of oil booms and busts

The year was 2005 and pundits both on the television and print media were warning the public of the impending event of our hydrocarbon reserves going dry which would leave the United States dependent on OPEC. Although the theory was correct, many did not anticipate the sudden improvements of older inventions, particularly those that allowed oil companies to recover what is called “Hard Oil”. This “hard oil” earns its name for the difficulty of obtaining it and the lack of revenue from it. The two technologies that allowed us to overcome this difficult moment were horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing. There two allowed oil companies to dramatically cut the cost of manual labor by incorporating automated machines that could run way longer than a human could.

Gulf Coast Western, owned and operated by Matthew Fleeger is one of the companies that have utilized these technologies the best. Matthew Fleeger who originally did not have experience in the oil industry was an entrepreneur who sold two successful companies and made a name for himself as a leader in both. Fleeger who took over his father’s oil company is now the CEO of the company.

How did Fleeger succeed when so many failed? It all came down to experience and positivity. Although Gulf Coast Western utilized many of the same technologies that other oil companies where using at the time, what set his company apart was that he used various partnerships and his geological knowledge of the area to pick and choose the best sections to set up drilling platforms.

Things weren’t always so great for Fleeger and the company, in fact, the early 2000s brought much uncertainty to his company as he was forced to cut down on overhead cost in order to maintain his current staff. Matthew comments that the ability to stay positive and think outside the box was the reason they are still here today.

How Carlos Alberto De Oliveira Andrade made The CAOA dream a reality

In 2002, Boris Feldman, a renowned journalist specializing in automobile news and host of the syndicated Car Talk radio show, had an interview with Carlos Alberto De Oliveira Andrade. During the interview, Dr. Carlos expressed his desire to one day make an entirely Brazilian car, in what he referred to as the Dr. Caoa dream.

An impossible feat

Recalling the interview with Dr. Carlos, Boris Feldman says that to him it all seemed impossible. Dr. Carlos planned to achieve that dream by getting different companies to design the model for him. For instance, he had already started negotiations with Fiat to create a national engine for the car, while his design agency based in Italy had already begun building a modern body for the model. To Boris Feldman that seemed like the Korean way of doing things as they also started the same way before making their models.

Change of mind

During his recent Car talk show, Boris Feldman revisited the matter and had a different opinion as half a decade later, Carlos Alberto De Oliveira Andrade has proven him wrong. Dr. Carlos did not do things the Korean way; instead, he took over the operations of a failing auto company in Brazil known as Cherry and turned its fortune around, kept his partners and at the same time ensured the continuation of his models in Jacarei and Annapolis. Today, Boris Feldman perceives Dr. Carlos as an experienced guru in the realm of automobiles, and an entrepreneur who has completely transformed the industry by successfully representing big brands such as French Renault.

About the CAOA

The CAOA is one of the leading automotive firms in Brazil. It was established in 1979 by Carlos Alberto De Oliveira Andrade, and now has a branch in almost every region in Brazil. Since its inception, the CAOA has been recording high successes due to the involvement of Dr. Carlos in nearly every stage of its operations, from assembly to distribution.

Today, the firm owns and controls all Hyundai, Ford and Subaru dealerships. Also since the 1990s, The CAOA has been the sole importer of Subaru and Hyundai models.

Initially, Carlos Alberto De Oliveira Andrade was in the health industry, but shifted gears after a dealership he had purchased a car from went bankrupt. He holds a medical degree which is why he is known as Dr. Carlos.
