The Stunning Contributions of Jason Hope to Anti-aging Medication

People all over the world are currently faced with various health problems and diseases. These range from minor health conditions to mild illnesses that are life threatening. Nonetheless, many people, as well as organizations, have failed to realize that there is one medical condition that affects people from all walks of life regardless of the level of income, health, and location. Aging is a medical condition that has been deemed inevitable all over the world.

From time immemorial, human beings have considered aging as something inescapable. Truly, all human beings get old, our bones become feeble, our skins wrinkle, and we become weak thus losing the capacity of carrying out activities we used to when we were young. Additionally, various diseases are also more common to people at old age. These illnesses include arthritis, high blood pressure, cancer, and osteoporosis among other diseases. Although there have been several developments to curb these medical conditions, medics have focused more on treating these diseases rather than preventing them. The health care system has failed in addressing the causes of these life-threatening diseases.

Fortunately, a handful of people have taken a different approach. Jason Hope an Arizona entrepreneur, and philanthropist has embarked on helping people to live longer by slowing down the process of aging. He is also giving out his own money to fund organizations that have ventured in coming up with treatments for the aging process all over the world. Jason Hope has funded SENS Foundation, a charitable organization, for several years. He first supported the organization in December 2010 when he donated $500,000 to their cause. This charitable organization is working on assisting the public to have access to technology that would slow down aging and also curb the diseases named above. SENS Foundation uses biotechnology to explore new medical approaches that would combat diseases and improve the lives of human beings.

SENS was founded in 2009 and apart from conducting research aimed at fighting aging, it also aims at reducing the perception of people about aging. The foundation also supports other promising research organizations like Harvard and Yale universities. Moreover, SENS Foundation also carries out medical research and operates laboratories. Jason Hope praised the work of the organization after donating the money. He even endorsed the foundation’s plan to combat illnesses like diabetes. Jason Hope donations promote the manufacture of AGE-breakers medication. This medication reduces glycation end-products that tend to increase as a person ages. Mr. Hope charitable acts are beneficial to the healthcare system.

RODRIGO TERPINS TALKS NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR BRAZILIAN CONSUMERS

In Brazil, e-commerce is one of the retail sectors that does not stop growing. According to data from Ebit – which measures the reputation of virtual stores through surveys of real consumers, generating strategic and tactical data for the online market – e-commerce traffic for 2017 was estimated at R $ 48.8 billion, 10% a year more than in 2016. All this growth and popularity of online commerce, however, also results in more demanding consumers – which forces retailers to innovate, offer new solutions, technologies and better consumer experiences, points out the entrepreneur in the field of retail, Rodrigo Terpins.

 

In this context, the IPNews Portal – a publication of Interactive Communication and a reference in journalistic content for Convergent Communication Systems – listed five payment technologies that promise to succeed in 2018 and improve the long-standing consumer experience. Check out.

 

Recurring Debit Payment without Authentication-

 

Rodrigo Terpins explains that until recently in Brazil, only subscribers with credit cards did not need to authenticate to make a payment. Already in the case of debit cards, the consumer was always directing to the page of the issuing bank,

 

where he had to enter his password and authorize the payment. This, however, has become a hindrance for companies who want to offer a recurring “invisible” customer debt collection experience in debt – and, well because of this, the debit mode as a form of payment was not being offered.

 

Adyen – a leading payment technology company offering a unique Global Platform – thinking about it, decided to innovate and develop for its Brazilian clients , among them Uber and Netflix, the unprecedented option to register debit card payments without it being necessary authentication. Check out 12social.com for more details.

 

“This was made possible by the company’s technology platform, which bases its anti-fraud strategies on the intelligent handling of a high volume of data,” IPNews wrote.

 

Application Payment-

 

Currently, according to Adyen global data for October 2017, about 52% of online purchases are made by mobile devices – which is a good opportunity for retailers to leverage their in-app stores. This technology enables the consumer to make payment on an accessible and intuitive platform, reports Rodrigo Terpins. And the retailers that make use of it will already be ahead in 2018 and will have greater chances of customer loyalty, said the IPNews Portal.

 

Automatic update of card data-

 

If the consumer lost or had the card stolen, he had to cancel their subsctiption, and issue a new card, they also had to re-do their registration on websites, apps, an e-commerce platforms. Now,

however, Adyen has lauched a new technlogy for automation and data update, called Account Updater, which simplifies this process, says Rodrigo Terpins.

 

“It eliminates the need to re-register customer payment data. Now, this process can be done directly by the Adyen e-commerce customers, who will keep the information of the card data in the Visa and Mastercard flags, always updated. This avoids unintentional churn, interruptions or delays in delivering products and services to consumers, who often have their signatures canceled or suspended for lack of up-to-date data,” IPNews explained.

 

Digital Photo Frames-

 

In addition to credit, debit and billet cards, another form of payment that is growing nowadays are the digital wallets. An example is Pay with Google, which allows the consumer to make one-touch purchases on mobile devices running Android or Chrome browsers – that is, without having to repeatedly enter payment information or delivery address. Terpins points out that this data can be stored in a digital user profile on the Google system .

 

Data Intelligence-

 

According to the IPNews Portal, “payment habits are a valuable source of data to increase conversion, improve buying experience and leverage business.” “Intelligence in data processing is the key to driving more conversions and therefore consumers have a better experience with their approved transactions,” the report concluded.
