Hop into your local time machine and travel back to the ’70s or ’80s. You’ll find a world that is completely detached from the digital, internet-driven experience that modern humans are living in. In the impossibly short timeframe of just 30 or 40 years, humanity has changed in a way that will never be undone. We are now more connected, more educated, and more prosperous than ever before. Jason Hope is a futurist who has spent years establishing his reputation for being sharp-minded and focused on issues that are just beyond the bend. Hope is joining many of his futurist colleagues in calling for the enhancement of the Internet of Things. What is the Internet of Things? What is the IoT all about? Let’s take a closer look at the subject. You can find Jason Hope on Twitter @JasonHope for latest updates.
Jason Hope has been a firm believer in the Internet of Things essentially since he jumped out of college and started working full-time in the tech field. Like many other entrepreneurs, Jason Hope is constantly put in front of technology as a means to expand his wealth and help to develop new products that can actually change the world. With that being said, Hope doesn’t believe in the Internet of Things because it is a financially viable thing to do. Hope believes in the Internet of Things because it is the ONLY thing that you can do.
The internet along with surging smart technology has fundamentally changed the world that we live in. From our smart watches which track our location and physical attributes to the smart public transit systems that keep people moving in highly populated areas, the internet has become a life-changer. Hope has seen the signs and he knows that there are more leaps and bounds to make in the coming years and he wants to be there when they happen.
The Internet of Things, Hope believes, can be the most important technological innovation in recent memory. Hope believes that the IoT will become so widespread and integral to our daily lives that any corporations who choose to ignore it now will be doing so at their own economic peril. The Internet of Things isn’t going to be the final frontier for innovation, but it is certainly going to be the most important one.
Jason Hope is a talented futurist with an extensive career as an entrepreneur. He graduated from Arizona State University before getting his MBA from the WP Carey School of Business.
I’m glad that someone else finally chimed in on the bitcoin craze. Shervin Pishevar recently went on a tweet rant that lasted more than 21 hours. He touched on a lot of points, but his tweet about bitcoin has gotten lost. It echoes something I’ve been saying for years.
Proponents of bitcoin like to tout the online currency’s unregulated status. Essentially, bitcoin lovers believe that the online currency is inherently valuable because it is not under the regulatory eyes of any government. Instead, it exists online in something called the blockchain.
The blockchain is simply data that is stored on millions of computers around the world. You probably have some of this data on your computer if you are dabbling in bitcoin. This distribution of data makes bitcoin impossible to hack. It also makes it impossible to control.
Shervin Pishevar does not think bitcoin is completely untethered. In fact, his tweet storm says otherwise. He thinks the online currency will drop rapidly over the next few months alongside the stock market to create another recession. This goes against everything bitcoin proponents love about the online currency.
Shervin Pishevar, like me, knows that bitcoin is tied to the stock market. It has no inherent value. Gold, on the other hand, has tangible value. It’s something you can hold, admire and bury in your backyard in case of a crisis. That’s why gold will skyrocket in value as the economy tanks.
People won’t want to hold their bitcoins when things get bad. In fact, there’s nothing to hold. It’s an abstract idea, and, as Shervin Pishevar says, its value is tied to the stock market. It’s not some independent currency that will sore in value when the times get tough.
I’m just glad that Shervin Pishevar is back. He’s disappeared for a while due to some personal issues, but he’s one of the great market minds of today. His tweet storm marks the return of an investment giant. He was smart enough to invest in Uber early, and he set up his own investment business called Investment company. He certainly knows what he’s talking about.

The increased prevalence of scam investments has seen most individuals shy away from committing their funds to investments and in effect missing out on potentially life-changing profits. And one of the most overlooked, and often doubted but highly rewarding investment is Freedom checks. Misinformation has seen most people not only shy away from these investments but also express negative opinions about their viability, therefore, forcing most individuals to avoid them. But Matt Badiali is out to educate willing investor on its viability. Read more about Freedom Checks at banyanhill.com.
Matt Badiali and freedom checks
Matt Badiali believes that Freedom checks will help American investors acquire full independence in the energy industry. Ideally, this form of investment focuses on natural resource companies that deal with the production, processing, and distribution of oil and gas. While arguing that it promises to revolutionize the investment stage, Matt pegs this belief on the ever-increasing demand for oil and energy. He holds the opinion that as the global population continues to increase so will the demand for oil and energy and in effect increased demand and value for the energy company stocks.
How much do you get from freedom checks?
By investing in these checks, investors get a chance to share the spoils with the natural resource industry in the form of increased share values and dividends. These shares are distributed by the master limited partnerships that often extend as much as 90 percent of their total profits to the investors. These abnormal returns have in the past seen most people shy away from investing in MLPs as they likened them to pyramid schemes. Read this article at Money Morning.
These beliefs couldn’t, however, be further from the truth considering that these MLPs are required by law to extend these profits t investors if they hope to enjoy tax benefits. Upcoming MLPs have also adopted this trend thereby creating a buzz around the subject even making it seem like a scam non-energy industry insiders. Matt’s education has therefore gone a long way in educating investors to the truth behind MLPs and opening up people’s thoughts to investments in the energy industry as they now realize freedom Checks were never illegitimate.

An intriguing article on the Patch.com website provided some insight into Neurocore and the history of brain-wave analysis and neurofeedback training. That history begins more than 200 years before Neurocore arrived on the scene.
In the late 1700’s an Italian scientist named Luigi Galvani fastened some recently detached frog legs to a metal fence during a lightning storm. The legs twitched when lightning struck the fence. Galvani thought the twitching was due to “animal electricity.” Volta guessed a bit closer, suspecting a connection between the saline tissue of the frog’s legs and the metal fence. Volta was right to suspect a current.
Galvani and Volta’s experiment would ultimately lead to the development of the EEG, or electroencephalogram. The EEG is used to detect various types of electrical brain wave activity. Two small disc-like electrodes are attached to the scalp to monitor brain activity. Today, EEG’s are used to detect various disorders such as epilepsy, stroke, depression, and many others.
— Neurocore (@neurocore) September 11, 2018
The first report of the diagnostic use of an EEG was in 1929. The experimenter was one Hans Berger of the German university town of Jena. Berger’s motivation was his firm belief in mental telepathy. Berger would go on to coin the terms alpha wave and beta wave to describe the two types of brainwaves he discovered. Alphas are larger waves produced when the subject’s eyes are open. Betas are smaller waves that replace the alphas when the subject opens his eyes.
Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG) is a digital technique for analyzing electrical brain wave activity and comparing it to various cohorts. From early the early thirties until the sixties, EEG’s were analyzed graphically. Widespread computer analysis of EEG’s took off in the nineties when personal computers first became both powerful and relatively cheap. Since then, normative databases of brain activity have been created. Researchers use those databases as benchmarks when analyzing brain function, or lack thereof, in patients.

In the late 1960’s neurofeedback became a thing. Neurofeedback has since been used to treat epilepsy with success rates at times reaching 60-percent. NASA uses includes neurofeedback as part of its program to train astronauts.
Today, Neurocore offers qEEG treatment for clinical depression. Successes include an 84% reduction of depressive symptoms. And after treatment, 54% no longer displayed symptoms consistent with depression. Neurocore is also using qEEG to treat children with ADHD. Results mirror those described above for clinical depression.
Neurocore was founded in 2004. They focus on providing brain assessments that are data driven coupled with training programs for adults and children. They also offer something called HRV, or Heart Rate Variability training. It is a method that uses another form of biofeedback to help subjects to bring their breathing and heart rate under conscious control. This helps strengthen the mind-body connection. In just 14 years, Neurocore has become the nation’s leading authority on applications of neuroscience.
Whitney Wolfe is the founder and chief executive officer of Bumble, which is a dating app that empowers women by allowing them to make the first move. Recently, she put together a launch party for a product that was new to the brand and spoke about how women are becoming much more involved in the world of business during the party. This is definitely true for Wolfe who has grown the Bumble brand, which now has more than 22 million registered users. The company recently had a $100 million year in sales and is expected to continue to do better and better. Read this article at techcrunch.com to know more.
Whitney Wolfe refused to sell Bumble for $450 million to the Match Group recently and then turned them down again when they offered more than $1 billion for the company. Previously, Wolfe was involved with Tinder as one of its co-founders and vice president of marketing, but she left the company amid controversy surrounding her accusations of sexual harassment by her previous boss. It also came to light, in Wolfe’s words, that Match Group had unfairly stripped her of her co-founder title. She ended up suing the company and was awarded $1 million. While this all took place, Wolfe has commented that she doesn’t feel resentment towards the company or previous boss as she just wants to focus her energy on her work.
After her split with Tinder, Whitney Wolfe decided to startup her own company and eventually created Bumble, which would be a direct competitor. She had help, along the way, from Andrey Andreev, the founder of Badoo, which is an online dating network. Apparently, she had made an impression on him while she worked at Tinder, and he had hoped she would come work with Badoo as the company’s CMO. Whitney Wolfe declined but eventually accepted his help in another way. Andreev became an investor and put up $10 million to help her launch her company. Today, Whitney Wolfe has built an empire through a company that serves women. She is an example to many and an inspiration to all of the women out there who are looking to become their own bosses.
You have to ask yourself one simple question about our political system today. Do you want money corrupting our politicians or not? If you think the corrupting influence of money needs to be ripped out of our political system by the root, then you should start following and supporting a group called End Citizens United.
This group of dedicated workers is taking aim at Citizens United. Five conservative Supreme Court justices simply decided that corporations are people with First Amendment rights. One of the Democratic justices wrote in his dissent that the decision has the ability to destroy democracy as we know it.
End Citizens United wants to dismantle the decision which allows corporations to spend unlimited amounts of dark money to influence elections across the country. There’s absolutely no way that the interests of large corporations align with the interests of the people in any corner of America. Corporations can’t get sick, bleed or die, so they shouldn’t be able to influence our democracy.
That’s why it’s more important than ever to support Beto O’Rourke in his fight against Ted Cruz for Senate in Texas. End Citizens United is there on the ground to help the Democratic congressman from El Paso defeat the longtime incumbent blobfish. The differences between the two men couldn’t be more striking. For more information connect with End Citizens United on Twitter.
First of all, Ted Cruz was born in Canada. Secondly, the Republican senator takes incredible amounts of money from large corporations. O’Rourke, on the other hand, takes absolutely zero donations from corporations and only solicits money from individual donors. Who do you think these two men will fight for in Washington?
This election in Texas is a bellwether for money in politics. End Citizens United is helping O’Rourke with his financial operations by tapping into grassroots fundraising. Ted Cruz, on the other hand, is taking massive handouts from corporations while President Donald Trump, a man who once called Ted Cruz feckless, is planned to hold a rally in Texas for the incumbent. It seems that the establishment right-wingers are afraid of Beto O’Rourke, End Citizens United and common sense prevailing in the Lone Star State.
