Stream Energy Featured on Patch for their Philanthropy

Few natural catastrophes have been as devastating as hurricane Harvey was to the country. The storm left behind catastrophic destruction of property, people were removed from their homes, and many fatalities were recorded. Many philanthropists came forward to address the calamity. However, one of the few that stood out in their efforts to restore hope to the victims of the catastrophe was Stream Energy. Their efforts were even recorded on Patch. The role of the energy sales company was to help the victims of the hurricane cope with the financial burden which they left behind, and they have managed to reduce instances of homelessness in Dallas and other hard-hit areas.

Stream Energy spokesperson states that it has always been their tradition to help people in sticky situations. Their charity, known as streams cares, is in place to try and reach even more people affected by the storm. The name of their charity, Stream Cares may be new, but their activities have been going on for the past 12 years. The company is an accurate reflection of how those who have the ability and have drawn their success from the community, can use the same resources to enrich and empower the same community during their time of need.

What sets Stream Energy apart from the other companies which have existed before is that they have separated the charity part of the organization from the rest of the business entity. As a result, the activities of the charity are run independently, which increases their effectiveness. The company is, therefore, breaking new ground as far as corporate social investment is concerned in Dallas, and they hope to extend this to other cities.

Stream Energy has formed partnerships with other entities in a bid to reach their agenda. For instance, they have been able to collaborate with the Red Cross and the habitat for humanity, and both companies have been instrumental in helping them cover more ground in charity work. Stream also partnered with an organization called Hope to provide diapers and other support to new and nursing mothers. Given time, this organization is going to transform the world of philosophy completely.

Jacob Gottlieb and Stuart Weisbrod Together Again

Its been almost twenty years since Stuart Weisbrod and Jacob Gottlieb worked together at Merlin which Weisbrod co-founded in 1988. Merlin is an investment group that focuses primarily on the healthcare field. Gottlieb was hired on as a portfolio manager in 2000 and although they had many years of success, they closed in 2007 and gave their investors all the money back.

Stuart Weisbrod is a very educated man. He received a BA in Chemistry from Colgate University in 1975, an MBA in Finance from Columbia University in 1986, and a PhD in Biochemistry from Princeton in 1980. Besides his educational career, Weisbord has been successful in his business endeavors as well. Besides co-founding Merlin in 1988, he has also found victories in his investment deals in the healthcare and biochemistry fields when he has partnered with companies like Merrill Lynch and Oracle Partners, among others.

Since the closing of Merlin, Weisbroad and Gottlieb created new investment companies. Weisbrod opened Iguana Healthcare Partners which is another investment firm that focuses on healthcare, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical companies. Gottlieb created Visium Asset Management in 2008. Although he managed to grow Visium from $300 million to $2.5 billion, they eventually had to close in 2016 due to charges brought from the SEC claiming insider trading and mismarking. Gottlieb has never been charged with anything and he continues to work as CEO at Visium, returning money to investors.

Altium Capital is where Gottlieb will be going next. Altium Capital has made its first investment of 5.61% at Oramed Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Ormaed has been in the healthcare industry since 2006. Their newest ground-breaking product is insulin in tablet form which will keep patients from injecting it every time that they need it. Until now, it has been almost impossible to keep insulin working in tablet form. Not only is it easier for patients to take, but it is more cost effective for patients.

Although its been nearly two decades since Weisbrod and Gottlieb have worked in the same office, hopefully the healthcare investment sector will see some interesting things happen soon from these two successful investors.

Jason Hope: A Soldier In The Fight Against Aging

Jason Hope is a successful businessman and well-known entrepreneur that has shown a keen interest in the research and science surrounding anti-aging. Hope firmly believes that there is technology now available that will soon prevent age-related diseases like high blood pressure, dementia, diabetes, and osteoporosis.

Jason Hope made his interest in the subject quite clear with a 2010 donation to the SENS foundation that totaled half a million dollars. The company is dedicated to researching techniques that are able to slow the effects traditionally associated with aging.

The SENS Foundation is based in Mountain View, California and focuses its efforts on researching compounds that lessen the effects of oxidation, strategies to decrease the presence of waste in cells, and substances that can serve to repair cells that have been damaged. The founder of SENS has been on record saying that he believes the human lifespan can be increased to 1000 years.

The subject of telomerase is one that has many in the anti-aging community excited. Telomerase is an enzyme that aids the size of the telomeres in the body. The telomeres are portions of the chromosomes that provides protection to genetic material within cells of the body. Research has conclusively shown that extra telomeres have the ability to decrease the rate of aging experienced by the human body. Telomeres may also prove capable of mitigating the damage that is caused to the body by oxidative stress.

This knowledge can be especially useful at fighting the effects of dementia as it has been observed that the accumulation of inflammation in the brain during the aging of an individual could instigate the development of the debilitating condition. Inflammatory compounds can also decrease cell lifespan and cause extracellular waste to break down cell barriers and increase the effects of oxidation.

Jason Hope Supports Anti-aging campaign

The possibilities of technology in the current age are no longer something one can doubt. What may have looked an impossibility yesterday may no longer be an impossibility. Technology is changing almost on a daily basis, and it is changing almost every aspect of life. Application of technology is in everything including our health. There are major innovations made in the medical industry which have made treating come diseases such as cancer possible. Technology is now evolving and not just on the side of the development of treatment equipment but also in innovations of drugs. Biotechnology is making it possible for technology to be applied in areas which have never been thought before.

One of the major problems in the medical industry currently is that much of the research on disease is being done to find a way of treating the disease instead of working on working on finding the cause of diseases and treating it. As we know, as we get old, our bodies become weak and more susceptible to diseases. Old age is normally associated with a majority of diseases that affect human beings. It is at old age that people who had been healthy all their lives will start developing diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Dementia, Cancer, arthritis among others.

So, it has become a concern of some people in the medical sector to try to find what happens when one gets old. If we can be able to find the cause or source of aging, we can slow it down or stop it. This way, there will be less likelihood that human beings will develop old age diseases. One of the ways through which this can happen is by developing a drug that will stop the aging process in a human being by performing tissues repairs in our bodies as we get old. There is ongoing research that is being done by an organization known as SENS Foundation. The organization is trying to invent an anti-aging drug.

Jason Hope

Jason Hope is a philanthropist and a tech enthusiast who is supporting this biotechnology research being done by this organization. He is hopeful that if the organization manages to come up with a drug that will slow down aging in human beings, this will be a great milestone in combating old age disease. People will grow old gracefully without having to go through numerous medical problems. Jason Hope has donated $500,000 to this organization to perform the necessary research. Jason Hope is from Arizona.
