The Billionaire List

Published

on

When Forbes published its 30 Under 30 Record for 2018, 11 former Duke pupils were among the positions of innovators across a wide range of fields, which vary from energy to games.

The annual 30 under 30 list comprises 600 young stars below age 30 in 20 distinct businesses. The Chronicle looked in why the 11 former Duke pupils were selected.

Jake Stauch, 26, made Forbes record of 30 below 30 for games made by his startup NeuroPlus. The business has developed a mind controlled video game to help kids with ADHD improve their attention spans. A Duke researcher recently found it has been 3 to 4 times more effective than conventional therapies.

Clearly, it’s an unbelievable honor to be named to the list. Stauch, who attended Duke from 2009 to 2012 before leaving to focus on his own startup, was a researcher in the Duke Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, competed for the Duke Startup Challenge and based a residential acceleration program for student entrepreneurs called InCube. He works together with the Melissa and Doug Entrepreneurship app to coach student entrepreneurs in Duke and lives in the area.

Other is Caroline Fairchild, 27, graduated from Duke Cum Laude in 2012 together with Science for Public Policy, a minor from English, along with a political journalism and a Media Studies Certificate. She earned a place on this years 30 under 30 list for media. Before joining LinkedIn she based The Broadsheet, Fortune’s first daily newsletter for females. During her time at Duke, Fairchild has been a Robertson Scholar who played club volleyball, along with writing for The Chronicle, an experience, she wrote, was formative to her future career.

“It is such an Honor to be included on a record with a lot of fantastic young leaders, including many who also went to Duke”, Fairchild wrote.

There’s also a member of the Duke Entertainment Media Arts Network. Scott Martin started a project named NET Power, the project works on an electricity generation system that captures its own carbon emissions.

Martin graduated with distinction and magna cum laude together with a bachelor of science of engineering degree in mechanical engineering. During his own time at the University, he has been the captain and president of the Duke Ice Hockey team, along with a member of Pi Kappa Phi fraternity: Twenty-seven-year-old Karim Khalil, who also earned a place on the 30 Under 30 Energy list for creating a technology that recaptures water vapor that typically escapes power plants through evaporation, and after that, recycles the vapor into the temperature regulation system.

All these young geniuses come from Duke. And they are rightly proud.

The Mexican Peso Explosion.

Published

on

By

Mexico’s peso jump high as sentiments improved because the country’s next president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador may seek a kindred relationship with President Trump. In their meeting, Trump and Obrador talked The North American Free Trade Agreement, Border security and also a potential bilateral trade deal.

In the second quarter of 2018, the peso was one of the worst performers and this was mainly because the investors were scared of the leading contender’s leftist politics.

The peso showed a 2 percent increase(19.57 peso to 1 USD) on the 3 of July. This jump can be called the strongest closing level in more than a month.

The peso has benefitted from the high-interest rates(local) which have caused foreign investors to buy domestic bonds in Mexico by borrowing dollars.

Day traders and investors were encouraged after the meeting of the 2 Presidents and the fact that Lopez Obrador has pledged central bank autonomy and the peso being allowed to trade freely has helped a lot.

A Brave New Browser

Published

on

By

Have you ever heard of basic attention token and their browser the brave browser? well, unlike many of the coins currently circulating through the market basic attention token has created a browser that they use to monetize websites. with this business model, basic attention token is able to provide true value with its platform.

Brave was created in early 2016 by Brendan Eich to help alleviate users from bandwidth sucking advertisements tracker’s and pop-ups that plague websites across the internet. This automatic ad blocker makes it so that the browser eliminates the need for any sort of extension and makes it so that your browsing experience is much quicker than its competitors.

The browser is available across all platforms, it is a solid competitor for the giants like safari, google chrome or Firefox.  I personally think it might actually be better than those browsers, it’s pop up blocker is pretty spot on and the claims of increased speed are verifiable.  I also have been able to save about 0.25 megabytes worth of data because I don’t have pop-ups when I’m streaming on my cell phone.

Pop-up blockers aside the most interesting thing about the brave browser is the basic attention token that supports the network. It is a ethereum based erc20 token whose goal is to provide advertisers the ability to purchase ad space and use your attention. Kind of like the product that google and facebook offer for their ad space. What makes this cryptocurrency novel is the fact that not only will advertisers have to pay for ads using basic attention token but users will be compensated for viewing ads in basic attention token.

This mind-blowing decision to pay someone for an activity that was initially bothersome fundamentally changes the way digital ads are delivered. The current model depends on third-party tracking services such as browsing history cookies in search queries that are compiled by middlemen and connect advertisers with users. The basic attention token removes this need for third-party tracking a middleman by matching and delivering ads locally from a catalog of available at and offers.

This method of advertisement delivery has its benefits Because it protects your privacy by keeping your browsing history private, without sacrificing accuracy in ad matching for advertisers. This basically means that if you would like pop-ups to appear, register your website and social media account with [Brave](www.brave.com). Users can then decide to give a set amount of basic attention token to the content creators that they frequent the most.

If you’re interested in a possibly faster-browsing experience and let’s pop-ups then I suggest giving the brave browser a try.

Rich and Poor

Published

on

By

I will start this article off by saying in no way am I a financial expert, or advisor. I am simply a young man who has spent many hours studying crypto, investing, and wealth in general and I would like to share my thoughts and findings with you. I have read multiple books around wealth including “The Richest Man In Babylon” and “Rich Dad Poor Dad”. I have also spent time studying family members who are successful, and who are not.

The first thing that sticks out to me about poor people is, they are afraid to take risks. I first began thinking about this topic while I was reading “The Richest Man in Babylon”. One of the lessons in the book was to be ready for opportunities and take them when they present themselves. Many people fail to prepare or are simply too afraid to act on the opportunities presented in their lives. Both are detrimental to their financial success, and can ultimately lead them to continue their poor mindset. I have also seen this in my life as well, with family members telling me stories of opportunities they missed, whether that be stocks they wanted to buy at bargain prices or prime real estate they passed on. Their reasoning behind each mistake was actually being afraid to make a mistake. When I see people who have generated great wealth, they talk about opportunities they took and ran with. The funny thing is many people did not see the opportunities back then or believed they were poor or would ultimately fail. However, the select few of those who took the opportunities used them to generate great wealth and prosper. Also, another important point to mention around the topic of risk, is these are calculated risks they are not “shots in the dark.” The successful people take time to prepare and understand the risk-reward ratio for each opportunity.

Do you work for money, or does money work for you? If you cannot answer this question or you would have to admit that you work for money, then ultimately your mindset is poor. This is the greatest way to generate wealth, in turn, it is also the most difficult thing to actually accomplish. What I mean by working for money is that you wake up every morning head to a job where you work for a set amount of hours, get paid a set amount of money, but ultimately you are working to make someone else rich. You are making your boss’s pockets bigger as well as the government’s. On the other side of things, if money works for you, your the one who is truly generating wealth. This can be a number of things, whether it be owning your own business, setting up a corporation (a great “hack” for the wealthy), or investing. Each of these vessels is a great way to reach your wealth creation goals, and ultimately you have to practice and learn about each to be able to take advantage of them. This is a really interesting topic, and one I plan on going deeper into it soon in another article!

Assets, assets, and more assets. Building on the previous idea of making money work for you buying assets is the best way to do this. To understand assets you must first know the difference between a liability and an asset. A liability is something that takes money out of your pocket, while an asset is something that puts money in your pocket. This is a very simple but effective definition of the two. An example of a liability would be your personal home or car. Both require you to pay money on a monthly basis, and the occasional fix for each. But on the other hand, an asset, like real estate, or stocks with dividends pay you on a monthly basis. Now obviously this is much easier said than done, real estate and investment are very trick, and require years of learning and experience to master, but if you know how to generate wealth you are a lot closer to actually doing it! Your own business is another example of an asset. A sort’ve secret “hack” the rich take advantage of is creating corporations. This is because corporations receive government tax breaks, and also take some of the risks of being sued for your assets away. Many people don’t understand a corporation does not require an office or a set number of people working for you. You simply need to pay a small fee and report certain financial documents to the government.

The last point of this article is maybe the most important. Poor people simply don’t take the time to educate themselves financially. The rich spend much more time educating themselves, than worrying about what other people are doing. They educate themselves on taxes, income, markets, and more. And due to their education, they realize they need to hire people to help them with managing their wealth, this includes lawyers accountants, assistants, and more. Again this is another example of making your money work for you. You are paying them to save you money, and generate income for you. It’s a very simple idea, but it is often times overlooked. They also understand ways to generate income, and ways to get around paying more taxes. Take the time to educate yourself financially, and see the impact it has on your wealth generation!

I hope this article helped you learn, and also take a look at how you are currently operating. Are you making money work for you? Are you scared to take calculated risks? I would love to hear your comments below! I would greatly appreciate if you upvote this article, resteem it, and follow me!
