Lowering stress, anxiety and even staving off depression can blessedly come from something that is free: laughing. So when Steve Jobs’ son – Reed Jobs – launched Yosemite, a $200M investment fund designed to fund early-stage digital health, therapeutics, and diagnostics companies, we thought of the funny, iconic Yogi Bear. First, we all remember that Steve Jobs was smarter than the average bear, so it stands to reason that Reed Jobs would be too. Second, the fund is named after the national park where Jobs’ parents were married, which is where Yogi Bear lives (though the cartoon creators call it Jellystone Park instead). The idea is to invest in new innovative cancer treatments that represent dramatic technological shifts like gene editing, liquid biopsies, and using machine learning to better diagnose patients. We are going to celebrate this welcome good news by watching a funny movie. Maybe it will even be the Yogi Bear movie with Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake.
