If there is one person who is known as being a futurist, the one name that people can all agree on is Jason Hope. He holds a passion for technology and has a good understanding of overall technology. With what he knows and understands of technology, he is hopeful to be able to make better predictions on where technology is headed in the future.

Jason Hope is helping others to get their own ideas off the ground by funding a grant program to help students and entrepreneurs to fund their research ideas. What he understands is that young minds are always working on coming up with great ideas and getting these ideas off the ground can be difficult. You can find Jason Hope on Twitter @JasonHope for latest updates.

Jason Hope is using his website as a way to meet up with the best ideas that are presented to him. The ideas are gone through and only the ideas that he feels are best supported are then helped to come to life.

Much like you and I, Jason spends his mornings just like anyone else does. He spends it eating breakfast and then partakes in some form of physical activity. Like many others, Jason will spend much of his time reading emails, sending messages on social media accounts and personal messages.

When asked what it is that he holds dear for being an entrepreneur is coming up with ways to make the future brighter and by encouraging what people can do to make there lives easier. Jason will spend time on the ideas that he feels are worthwhile while others will come up with an idea but never fully follow through.

One thing that Jason is fond of is the use of devices and gadgets that will be used to adjust things in life. You will be able to use these devices to make things in life easier. By using gadgets and such, you are saving time by using the items to become productive. Some of the various devices that Jason is fond of include gadgets that will adjust lighting as well as the temperature in a room. The use of biometrics monitors is another gadget that Jason loves.

Jason Hope has high hopes for the use of the SENS Foundation. When asked about his feelings on the issue, Jason spoke about how aging can be slowed down if you work at the cellular level. He has personally donated to this foundation and is hard at work to help them better understand and reach a cure for slowing down the progression of aging.

The one area of research that Jason is open to that a large number of people disagree on is the use of stem cells. What people need to better understand is that stem cells and usuage of stem cells is where the medical research field is headed into. There will be more and more talk about the use of stem cells and what we can do to help prevent things thru the use of them.

Betsy Devos Joins Democrats In Calls For Congressional Hearings Concerning School Shootings

There have been numerous mass shootings over the last decade. It seems the news cycle focuses on the shooting for about two weeks before moving on to the next big story. Sooner or later, the country turns the page until the next shooting happens and the cycle starts again.

 

But this time is different. The surviving student body of Marjory Stoneham Douglas High School has banded together to start a movement for change. In just under a week, the students have forced a nationally televised town hall meeting with Florida lawmakers and have marched on the state legislature in Tallahassee demanding action. And even a high-ranking Republican is calling for Congress to do something.

 

Betsy Devos, the Trump Administration’s Secretary of Education, has called on Congress to start a debate. She specifically and publicly pleads for Congress to begin holding hearings on the issue of gun violence in America. While not calling for any specific policy changes, she urged Congress to have conversations about tracking shooting suspects and addressing the nation’s mental health. And she did it all on an extremely popular conservative talk radio show hosted by Hugh Hewitt.

 

She seems to have spurned a bipartisan effort to jump-start the debate in Congress. She wants lawmakers to have an actual impact on the future, and Democratic Senator Patty Murray from Washington State couldn’t agree more. She’s publicly agreed with Devos wholeheartedly and has urged Republicans in Congress for hearings on the issue. She added that she is very glad that Secretary Devos has requested hearings on gun violence.

 

Unfortunately, the House Committee on Education and the Workforce has not held such a hearing since February of 2013. It’s been five years since the last hearing on gun violence despite the epidemic of mass shootings in America. Perhaps this bipartisan effort to open the floor to a debate will bring about meaningful change.

 

There are two Democratic lawmakers on the House Committee on Education and the Workforce that have joined Devos in demanding a hearing. Representatives Suzanne Bonamici (D-Ore.) and ranking member Bobby Scott (D-Va.) have sent a letter to the Republican chair of the committee demanding a hearing while all other Democrats on the committee backed the demand.

 

The letter states that more than 430 people have been shot in over 230 school shootings since Sandy Hook which took place just five years ago. The letter was sent to the chair, Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.), stating that the committee has not held a hearing since the tragedy at Sandy Hook.

 

The Democrats may have found an unlikely ally in the demand for a gun safety debate in Devos. However, the shooting took place on her turf — a public high school. She’s been working tirelessly to give students and their families more choice when it comes to education. She’s even appealed to students by making appearances with pop star Pit Bull in Miami. Now her greatest challenge might be keeping the nation’s students safe from the epidemic of gun violence.
