Investigators Probe Cause of Jersey Shore Boardwalk Blaze

Investigators Probe Cause of Jersey Shore Boardwalk Blaze | Business News & Finance | Scoop.it

Fire crews continued Friday to battle hot spots still smoldering a day after a massive fire ripped through a Jersey Shore town, destroying 80 percent of a boardwalk that was ravaged by Superstorm Sandy just a year ago. 

 

Flames spread rapidly along the boardwalk in Seaside Park and neighboring Seaside Heights Thursday, devastating an estimated 30 businesses in a span of several blocks. An official said Thursday that just two buildings --the Saw Mill Café and part of an arcade -- on that stretch of the boardwalk survived.

Viet Refugee Wins White House Honor for Her Environmental Work in the U.S.

Viet Refugee Wins White House Honor for Her Environmental Work in the U.S. | Business News & Finance | Scoop.it
A Vietnamese American woman was honored last week with the White House Champions of Change for Climate Equity Award for her work to end environmental racism and empower communities of color to join the fight against climate change. “Winning this award is a great honor, and validates all the work we are doing to end environmental racism and prioritize solutions in frontline communities that are hit first and worst by pollution and climate change,” said Vien Truong, director of Green For All, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty. One of her landmark accomplishments is the passing of Senate Bill 535, a community reinvestment bill in California that created a polluters pay fund, which created the largest fund in history for low income communities to green up and to create economic revitalization for residents. In the last two years, it has directed over $900 million into the poorest and most polluted communities in California.

Men build three swimming pools for $3,600 in central Vietnam

Men build three swimming pools for $3,600 in central Vietnam | Business News & Finance | Scoop.it
With VND80 million (US$3,600) between them, three Vietnamese men in the central province of Quang Ngai have constructed three swimming pools of about 300 square meters each.According to Pkdata, Inc., a Georgia-based market research and consulting firm on recreational water, normally an above-ground swimming pool of around 5.8 meters in diameter would cost more than $6,000.But Tran Anh Tuan, an oil refinery engineer, Huynh Duc Linh, a physical education teacher, and Nguyen Van Phuong, a swimming coach, have built three pools with a little over half that money, turning their dream into a reality.“Our main goal is to create safe swimming pools with building costs as low as possible,” Tuan, the brains behind the concept, said.The trio came up with the idea after seeing students in the province drowned to death.

Millennials and baby boomers have this one thing in common

Millennials and baby boomers have this one thing in common | Business News & Finance | Scoop.it

For many Americans, going to college may be a taste of what life will be like 40 years down the road.

College students spend the same amount of time engaging in work- or education-related activities as Americans 59 years or older, who are beginning to wind down their careers and enter retirement, according to a report by the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.

The average full-time college student spends 1.8 hours in class and doing homework each day and 2.3 hours at work, averaging 26 hours of work a week, the report found, using data from the 2003 to 2014 Bureau of Labor Statistics American Time Use Survey. The only age cohort that matches that workload is those 59 or older, who spend 25.3 hours or less a week working.

For comparison, high-school students spend 30.2 hours a week in educational activities or working and Americans between the ages of 23 and 55 spend about 31 to 35 hours a week working.

Human Age Reversal: the Next Biotech Blockbuster? : Social Chats

Human Age Reversal: the Next Biotech Blockbuster? : Social Chats | Business News & Finance | Scoop.it

The world’s first scientific conference to focus on human age-reversal is landing in San Diego, August 4-7.  

Revolution against Aging and Death (RAAD) Festival is an interactive meeting featuring pioneering physician-scientists actively seeking to slow down and even induce meaningful reversal of degenerative aging processes in older humans.

It will be the first event of its kind, providing opportunities for biotech investors to interact with cutting-edge biomedical mavericks.

Rather than merely slowing how fast we age, RAADFest presenters will describe systemic age reversal induced in laboratory mammals and how these technologies can enable humans to attain comparable benefits. The ultimate reward will be the radical extension of healthy lifespans. 

For investors seeking to learn about technologies that could one day reach the scale of the iPhone, attendance at RAADFest is mandatory. Patented age reversal therapeutics could represent the ultimate universal consumer “product.”

Unlike mobile phones, for which people pay out of pocket, validated age reversal therapies will one day likely be paid for by governments, as these treatments will spare Medicare and other government payers massive financial outlays caring for sickly elderly populations. 

At RAAD Fest, physician/scientists and hordes of consumers that are eager to access validated aging reversal therapeutics will convene. A roster of 40 speakers will formally present, along with many more that have scientific concepts of how to gain control over biological aging. 

While the commercial opportunities could be huge, several non-profit groups are sponsoring RAADFest, to be a catalyst to accelerate biological age reversal technologies into clinical reality within the next several years.  

According to Bill Faloon, Co-Founder of the Life Extension Foundation, “This conference could ignite a new Renaissance in thinking by starting to shift societal attitudes about the inevitability of the aging process.”
