Why People Hate Class Reunions Cathy, Sue and Jane haven't seen each other since High School. They rediscover each other via a reunion website and arrange to meet for lunch in a wine bar. Cathy arrives first, wearing a beige Versace. She orders a bottle of Pinot Grigio. Sue arrives shortly afterward, in gray Chanel. After the required ritualized kisses she joins Cathy in a glass of wine. Then Jane walks in, wearing a faded old tee-shirt, blue jeans and boots. She too shares the wine. Cathy explains that after leaving High School and graduating from Princeton in Classics, she met and married Bill, with whom she has a beautiful daughter. Bill is a partner in one of New York's leading law firms. They live in a 4000 sq. ft. co-op on Fifth Avenue, where Susanna, the daughter, attends drama school. They have a second home in Phoenix.

George Washington: On April 30, 1789, George Washington, standing on the balcony of Federal Hall on Wall Street in New York, took his oath of office as the first President of the United States. "As the first of every thing, in our situation will serve to establish a Precedent," he wrote James Madison, "it is devoutly wished on my part, that these precedents may be fixed on true principles." Born in 1732 into a Virginia planter family, he learned the morals, manners, and body of knowledge requisite for an 18th century Virginia gentleman. He pursued two intertwined interests: military arts and western expansion. At 16 he helped survey Shenandoah lands for Thomas, Lord Fairfax. Commissioned a lieutenant colonel in 1754, he fought the first skirmishes of what grew into the French and Indian War. The next year, as an aide to Gen. Edward Braddock, he escaped injury although four bullets ripped his coat and two horses were shot from under him. From 1759 to the outbreak of the American Revolution, Washington mana ...

Last year was a terrible year for movies, Hollywood just seemed to have run out of ideas (Some were pretty good but not many). However this year the dam has burst and I have found a flood of great films for 2015. Best of all, most of them are actually original!!!   It was a struggle to get it down to just 10 so I once again will supply 2 lists. Firstly my top 10 original movies and then my top 5 prequels sequels and reboots,   Original Movies   10. The Water Diviner – Although the preview showed more than it should I'm expecting to be in tears by the end. A movie about a father looking for his 3 sons lost at Gallipoli.

www.redbookchannel.com Woman making Prince Andrew sex claims vows not to be silenced LONDON: The woman who named Britain's Prince Andrew in a US court filing claiming that she was kept as an underage "sex slave" by a Wall Street financier said on Saturday she would not be silenced. The plaintiff, identified only as "Jane Doe in court papers, told the Guardian newspaper that she refuses to be "unjustly victimised again" after robust denials from Buckingham Palace and another man named in the suit. The story made headline news in Britain's newspapers on Saturday. According to the motion filed in a Florida court on Monday, the woman alleges she was "forced to have sexual relations" with Andrew, the Duke of York, in London, New York and the Caribbean at the behest of Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein, a known friend of the 54-year-old prince, was convicted in 2008 of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution and served a prison term. No dates for the purported sexual encounters were given, but the woman claimed she ...

Spreading Ethnic Violence Religious and racial violence continues to erupt around the world. In Nigeria, Islamic militants have killed or kidnapped hundreds of men, women and children and torched homes of people of different faiths. In Syria and Iraq, Shiites and Sunni Moslems are killing and beheading each other. In Canada, Australia and East Africa, Moslem fanatics have mounted attacks on non-believers. Just this past week, an angry young man assassinated two New York policemen in apparent revenge for the killing of two black men that led to days of riots and demonstrations in dozens of American cities (The Wall Street Journal, December 22, 2014). Also last week, terrorists shouting Islamic slogans drove their vehicles into pedestrians in several cities in France, causing the French government to disperse armed military personnel in the streets of Paris (The New York Times, December 23, 2014). Long ago, Jesus warned that a major sign that would precede His return would be “nation would rise against na ...
PARTING SHOT... It’s no secret. I’m a Democrat, and proud of it. But, lately, I admit, I’ve fallen in love with two Republicans. Both of them former governors of New York, and both of them dead. First, Teddy Roosevelt. Who, of course, was also president. He was not only a colorful character, and the youngest man to serve as president. He was a great populist and great reformer, who never hesitated to use the powers of the presidency. Teddy took on Wall Street with a passion. He busted up the trusts. He stood up for workers against the big corporate bosses, and fought for miners against mine owners. Second, Nelson Rockefeller. Who never made it to president. But who was a strong supporter of the arts. Built Rockefeller Center, Lincoln Center, and MOMA. He was also an early civil rights supporter, big friend of Martin Luther King Jr’s – and arranged and paid for his funeral in Atlanta. Teddy Roosevelt and Nelson Rockefeller. This Democrat would vote for either one of them today. Why can’t Republ ...

By Elizabeth Warren And Joe Manchin Nov. 17, 2014 7:16 p.m. ET We joined the Senate Banking Committee to try to make the banking system work better for American families. That’s why we’re concerned that the Federal Reserve—our first line of defense against another financial crisis—seems more worried about protecting Wall Street than protecting Main Street. Fortunately, this is one problem the Obama administration can start fixing today by nominating the right people to fill the two vacancies on the Fed’s Board of Governors. The Board of Governors is responsible for supervising the country’s biggest banks. It’s also responsible for overseeing the regional Federal Reserve Banks, including the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. For decades, the Board of Governors and the New York Fed have been responsible for supervising Wall Street banks, but after the 2008 crisis and the regulatory lapses it revealed, Congress gave the Fed even more oversight authority. According to the new chair of the Board ...

Today is Wednesday, Oct. 29, the 302nd day of 2014. There are 63 days left in the year. Today's Highlight in History: On Oct. 29, 1964, thieves made off with the Star of India and other gems from the American Museum of Natural History in New York. (The Star and most of the other gems were recovered; three men were convicted of stealing them.) On this date: In 1618, Sir Walter Raleigh, the English courtier, military adventurer and poet, was executed in London. In 1787, the opera "Don Giovanni" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart had its world premiere in Prague. In 1901, President William McKinley's assassin, Leon Czolgosz (CHAWL'-gahsh), was electrocuted. In 1929, Wall Street crashed on "Black Tuesday," heralding the start of America's Great Depression. In 1940, Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson drew the first number - 158 - in America's first peacetime military draft. In 1956, during the Suez Canal crisis, Israel invaded Egypt's Sinai Peninsula. "The Huntley-Brinkley Report" premiered as NBC's nightly television ...

Asian equities were mixed on the last trading day of the week as concerns over Ebola and China offset gains on Wall Street. A doctor in New York tested positive for the Ebola virus, the New York Times reported early on Friday, after returning from West Africa last week. Speaking at a press conference, New York Mayor De Blasio said officials believe "very few" people had contact with the doctor since his return. Markets reacted quickly to the news, with the Japanese yen strengthening 0.3 percent against the greenback and Dow futures dropping over 70 points before paring losses. Meanwhile, attention in Asia was on China where official data showed new home prices falling 1.3 percent on year in September, the first annual drop in nearly two years. The report heightened concerns over the country's property market, which many experts say poses the single biggest risk to the economy. U.S. stocks surged on Thursday, with all three major indices climbing over 1 percent each, following strong third-quarter results ...
Asian markets trimmed their gains Friday and U.S. stock futures fell after a doctor in New York who recently returned from West Africa tested positive for Ebola. KEEPING SCORE: Dow Jones futures fell 0.4 percent to 16,541 and S&P 500 futures dropped 0.6 percent to 1,934.90. Hong Kong's Hang Seng was off 0.5 percent at 23,217.36 while Japan's Nikkei 225 was up 0.8 percent at 15,252.72. Seoul's Kospi was down 0.5 percent at 1,922.53 and Australia's S&P/ASX rose 0.5 percent to 5,409.30. EBOLA: An emergency room doctor who returned to New York after treating Ebola patients in West Africa has tested positive for the virus, Mayor Bill De Blasio said. It's the first case in the city and the fourth in the U.S. The mayor said there's no reason for residents to be alarmed and all city officials followed "clear and strong" protocols in their handling and treatment of the man. Governments have been increasing safeguard measures as Ebola rages in a handful of West African nations, fearing significant human and econom ...

I’m going to be honest of what I’m going to say here. I’m 25 this year. I’m very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above. You might say that I’m greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York. My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married? I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you? Among those I’ve dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit. If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden(?), $250k annual income is not enough. I’m here humbly to ask a few questions: 1) Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym) 2) Which age group should I target? 3) Why most wives of the riches are only average-looking?

Wall Street is one of the biggest sources of funding for presidential campaigns, and many of the Republican Party's potential 2016 contenders are governors, from Chris Christie of New Jersey and Rick Perry of Texas to Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Scott Walker of Wisconsin. And so, last week, the GOP filed a federal lawsuit aimed at overturning the pay-to-play law that bars those governors from raising campaign money from Wall Street executives who manage their states' pension funds. In the case, New York and Tennessee's Republican parties are represented by two former Bush administration officials, one of whose firms just won the Supreme Court case invalidating campaign contribution limits on large donors. In their complaint, the parties argue that people managing state pension money have a First Amendment right to make large donations to state officials who award those lucrative money management contracts. With the $3 trillion public pension system controlled by elected officials now generating billions ...

From 2003 to 2008, among McConnell's top 20 donors have been 5 financial/investment firms: UBS, FMR Corporation (Fidelity Investments), Citigroup, Bank of New York and Merrill Lynch.[54] In April 2010, while Congress was considering financial reform legislation, a reporter asked McConnell if he was "doing the bidding of the large banks." McConnell has received more money in donations from the "Finance, Insurance and Real Estate" sector than any other sector according to the Center for Responsive Politics.[54][55] McConnell responded "I'd say that that's inaccurate. You could talk to the community bankers in Kentucky." The Democratic Party's plan for financial reform is actually a way to institute "endless taxpayer funded bailouts for big Wall Street banks", said McConnell. He expressed concern that the proposed $50 billion, bank-funded fund that would be used to liquidate financial firms that could collapse "would of course immediately signal to everyone that the government is ready to bail out large bank ...

Jacqueline Lee (Bouvier) Kennedy Onassis (pronounced /ˌˈdʒækliːn ˈliː ˈbuːvieɪ/)commonly known as "Jackie" (July 28, 1929 – May 19, 1994) was the wife of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, and First Lady of the United States during his presidency from 1961 until his assassination in 1963. Five years later she married Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis; they remained married until his death in 1975. For the final two decades of her life, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis had a career as a book editor. She is remembered for her contributions to the arts and preservation of historic architecture, her style, elegance, and grace. She was a fashion icon; her famous ensemble of pink Chanel suit and matching pillbox hat has become symbolic of her husband's assassination and one of the lasting images of the 1960s. Jacqueline Lee Bouvier was born in Southampton, New York in 1929, to Wall Street stockbroker John Vernou "Black Jack" Bouvier III (1891–1957) and Janet Norton Lee (190 ...

Moral of story? None. Except that compared to contemporary Wall Street practitioners, Slick Willie was an amateur, as we used to say in Astoria, either a communist or a Boy Scout. _ So if you check with your broker like ...

Asia shares edge lower Asian shares dipped on Thursday as investors brushed off another record close on Wall Street ahead of the release of closely watched US jobs data. Tokyo and Hong Kong were flat, Sydney slipped 0.51 per cent, Shanghai eased 0.18 per cent and Seoul was 0.56 per cent lower. On currency markets, the euro faced further selling pressure owing to expectations the European Central Bank will further cut interest rates and unveil other monetary easing measures to fend off deflation and support the economy. The euro bought $1.3596 against $1.3599 in New York, while it slipped to 139.46 yen from 139.68 yen. The dollar was quoted at 102.60 yen compared with 102.74 yen.

Not sure what to watch in your weekend? Check Sanity New Release: Wolf Of Wall Street Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, from his rise to a wealthy stock-broker living the high life to his fall involving crime, corruption and the federal government. Revered filmmaker Martin Scorsese directs the story of New York Stockbroker Jordan Belfort (Leonardo Dicaprio). From the American dream to corporate greed, Belfort goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption in the late 80s. Excess success and affluence in his early twenties as founder of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont warranted Belfort the title – “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

World Banking atrocities against mankind needs to be addressed now and might I add, militarily! We sure are in a mess and these World Banks already have total control of our government and their crooked bandit henchmen are going to cause a catastrophe Worldwide and they shall be able to walk away unscathed with all the money once they've fulfilled their agenda! They are the real enemy and we need to assassinate all of them and as quickly as possible.. starting with the Wall Street bunglers in New York! How is it that are we not able to search them all out and remove them from the face of the Earth? We surely do outnumber them and we know precisely who each and everyone of them are by name categorically, for they are all listed in the Bilderberg Group list.

The Scam Wall Street Learned From the Mafia Capo How America’s biggest banks took part in a nationwide bid-rigging conspiracy – until they were caught on tape Someday, it will go down in history as the first trial of the modern American mafia. Of course, you won’t hear the recent financial corruption case, United States of America v. Carollo, Goldberg and Grimm, called anything like that. If you heard about it at all, you’re probably either in the municipal bond business or married to an antitrust lawyer. Even then, all you probably heard was that a threesome of bit players on Wall Street got convicted of obscure antitrust violations in one of the most inscrutable, jargon-packed legal snoozefests since the government’s massive case against Microsoft in the Nineties – not exactly the thrilling courtroom drama offered by the famed trials of old-school mobsters like Al Capone or Anthony “Tony Ducks” Corallo. But this just-completed trial in downtown New York against three faceless financial e ...

WHAT WHITE FOLKS DONT WANT BLACKS TO KNOW The United States of America Slavery transformed America into an economic power. The exploitation of black people for free labor made the South the richest and most politically powerful region in the country. British demand for American cotton made the southern stretch of the Mississippi River the Silicon Valley of its era, boasting the single largest concentration of the nation’s millionaires. But slavery was a national enterprise. Many firms on Wall Street such as JPMorgan Chase, New York Life and now-defunct Lehman Brothers made fortunes from investing in the slave trade the most profitable economic activity in New York’s 350 year history. Slavery was so important to the city that New York was one of the most pro-slavery urban municipalities in the North. According to Harper’s magazine (November 2000), the United States stole an estimated $100 trillion for 222,505,049 hours of forced labor between 1619 and 1865, with a compounded interest of 6 percent.

BECOME A MAN IF . What does it mean to be a man today? and NetNet’s John Carney have attempted to break down the chief rules that every man should live by. As you’d expect from Goldman Sachs, there’s a distinct Wall Street/white collar vibe to many of these pearls of wisdom — you should always tip more than you need to, for example, and your sunglasses need to be incredibly expensive. Some of the advice also seems to have come straight out of the 1960s-set TV show Mad Men (“When in doubt, always kiss the girl”, “Hookers aren’t cool, but remember, the free ones are a lot more expensive.”) We’ve also omitted some of the more overtly US-centric tips such as the best “rest rooms” in New York. Nevertheless, there are still a few interesting nuggets below that are probably worth adopting into your lifestyle. I’ll definitely be taking up fly-fishing this summer.

132 Nations Want Out of the Cabal Banking System By Christina Sarich, Nation of Change – May 5, 2014 – Just in case you haven’t been keeping up with the ‘tin-foil’ hat conspiracies, increasingly proven to be true, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, is the center of a secret global economy that has bailed out American International Group Inc., huge insurance companies like AIG, Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Merrill Lynch & Co., J.P. Morgan,Societe Generale and Deutsche Bank AG, among others. The secret cabal’s control over international markets is becoming less of a mystery as increasing numbers of markets reveal themselves so obviously to be fixed. The cabal cheats the 99 percent with Libor interest rates, foreign exchanges, and gold, silver, and platinum price fixing. Then there’s high-frequency trading (HFT), where Wall Street banks use supercomputers to monitor incoming stock market orders, analyze their likely impact on prices, and place orders ahead of those trades to capture a bit of th ...

U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York unveiled the 20-count indictment against Republican Congressman Michael Grimm, charging him with filing false tax returns, failing to report about $1 million to taxing authorities, committing mail and health care fraud, perjury, hiring illegal immigrants, and other crimes. From 2007 to 2010, Mr. Grimm owned and operated a restaurant on the Upper East Side of Manhattan called Healthalicious. Mr. Grimm, 44 years old, has been in office since 2011 and represents Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn. He is a decorated Marine, having served in the Persian Gulf War, and is a former FBI agent who investigated fraud on Wall Street. "Representative Grimm should understand the motto: fidelity, bravery, and integrity. Yet he broke our credo at nearly every turn. In this twenty-count indictment, Representative Grimm lived by a new motto: fraud, perjury, and obstruction." (FBI Assistant Director George Venizelos) For the past two years, Mr. Grimm's campaign finance ...

President Obama has broken every promise he made while campaigning for office. He said that he wouldn't hire Wall Street executives to work in The White House, but that's all he's hired. Now the brother of Chicago's Mayor Richard Daley, who works as an executive for JP Morgan in New York, is going to be appointed by President Obama to The White House chief of staff. Obama promised to allow the public to view new bills before the were passed into law; but instead Obama passed laws without even allowing Congress to read them first. I'm not making this stuff up, I wish I were. I won't belabor the point because you need to watch the eye-opening documentary, THE OBAMA DECEPTION.
Vincent McCrudden was born and raised on Long Island, New York. Most of his adult career was spent on Wall Street. During 20 plus years, McCrudden either executed or traded hundreds of billions of dollars of sophisticated financial instruments for the top financial institutions in the world. During some of his time on Wall Street, he worked in the World Trade Center and survived both attacks in 1993 and 2001. On 9/11 he lost 23 friends. In 1995 McCrudden started a small hedge fund but unfortunately was the victim of fraud in the copper markets that resulted in some of the biggest fines in futures history against Sumitomo Bank, JP Morgan, Merrill Lynch and others. McCrudden became a lead plaintiff against these large financial institutions.Unknown to him at the time, McCrudden became a target of these big financial institutions and the US Financial Regulators that do their bidding. Ultimately, McCrudden would be denied licenses that he had worked so hard to get, and would shockingly be charged with mail fr ...

Chinese growth figures support the Aussie Wall Street closed in the green saved by a late rally which encouraged Asian equities to perform well. The latest were also lifted by better than expected economic growth for China, the Nikkei gained +3.01%. Overnight, Chinese growth data surprised positively with a 7.4% reading for the first quarter of 2014 instead of the expected 7.3%. As a result, the Aussie gained strength due to risk on trades while on the other hand JPY lost ground against the greenback. USD/JPY is now trading back above 102.0 key level; obviously Haruhiko Kuroda BoJ Governor’s comment about maintaining the current monetary policy supported the pair. The Kiwi suffered from softening CPI figures for the first quarter. With a reading of 1.5% down from a previous 1.6%, the NZD/USD lost ground and abandoned more than 50 pips. Later on today, all eyes will be on Janet Yellen, who will speak on monetary policy and the economic recovery before the Economic Club of New York.

Unfortunately for those keen on the swift procession of justice, a series of Manhattan residents who presented themselves at the criminal courthouse this week declared that they strongly disagreed with it – and could not promise to be impartial about one of its members. “I’m involved in Wall Street things.

Angels from the Realms of Glory / Choir of Trinity Church, Wall Street, New York & Owen Burdick. #
When I heard that my 21-year-old son, a student at Harvard, had been stopped by New York City police on more than one occasion during the brief summer he spent as a Wall Street intern, I was angry. On one occasion, while wearing his best business suit, he was forced to lie face-down on a filthy sidewalk because—well, let’s be honest about it, because of the color of his skin. As an attorney and a college professor who teaches criminal justice classes, I knew that his constitutional rights had been violated. As a parent, I feared for his safety at the hands of the police—a fear that I feel every single day, whether he is in New York or elsewhere. Moreover, as the white father of an African-American son, I am keenly aware that I never face the suspicion and indignities that my son continuously confronts. In fact, all of the men among my African-American in-laws—and I literally mean every single one of them—can tell multiple stories of unjustified investigatory police stops of the sort that not a s ...
"First Responders": Black Parents or White Teachers? © By Alton H. Maddox, Jr. The debate between Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor William de Blasio over the funding for pre-K involves Black and Latino children. Parents of these children have already been disenfranchised in New York. Thus, it is illegal for them to harbor and participate in political speech. This is akin to the slave trade. Wall Street is behind pre-K. I was born in Michigan. At a very early age, my parents packed their bags and headed back to "Jim Crow" Georgia. My mother was an educator and she was proficient in early childhood education. She factored me into her decision to head back to Georgia or the "Cotton Curtain". Most of their friends thought that they were "crazy". They were already homeowners in Georgia. Euphemistically speaking, my mother knew "she could kill two birds with one stone". Home training preceded "Hollywood" or pre-K during the late 1940's. In fact, television was unavailable as a baby-sitter and mothers h ...
An American in New York, Part 2: The big event of our first full day in the city was a performance of King Lear at a theater in Brooklyn. I had bought a copy of the play and made it about halfway through, which turned out to be a boon. You see, my sister makes insanely optimistic estimates of travel times and although I kept asking her if we could make it all the way to Brooklyn in time for the play, she kept assuring us that there was no problem. Joe works way down at the bottom of Manhattan island close to Wall Street (as a computer coder for iPad apps). He headed up to our hotel after work and we all left from there. We went to Grand Central Station and got on a train at the height of the rush hour. We were packing in the train so tightly I found I was hanging on to Stacey's wrist to steady myself. Stacey was obviously not comfortable with the press of people, but I looked over at Yuki and he had simply become one with the train. For him this was an average train ride to campus in the morning.

"The following script is from "Rigged" which aired on March 30, 2014. Steve Kroft is the correspondent. Draggan Mihailovich, producer. This month marks the fifth anniversary of the current bull market on Wall Street, making it one of the longest and strongest in history. Yet U.S. stock ownership is at a record low and less than half of Americans trust banks and financial services. And in the last two weeks, the New York Attorney General and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission in Washington have both launched investigations into high-frequency computerized stock trading that now controls more than half the market. The probes were announced just ahead of a much anticipated book on the subject by best-selling author Michael Lewis called "Flash Boys." In it, Lewis argues that the stock market is now rigged to benefit a group of insiders that have made tens of billions of dollars exploiting computerized trading. The story is told through an unlikely cast of characters who figured out what was going on a ...
Huey Long SUNRISE April 25, 1904 – SUNSET. June 10, 2009. In the spring of 1904 in Sealy, Texas, a son was born to Mr. Robert and Martha Mathenia-Long. Huey was one of 13 children. Huey grew up to become an international music legend. Nothing about his early years gave his parents a clue. His childhood was spent helping with farm work and picking cotton in the fields of Sealy. He often commented that he thought those fields were “beautiful, because they looked just like snow” to his young eyes. But when a minstrel show visited his hometown, Huey, then a teen ager, fell in love with the wonder of music. Singing and strumming his ukulele and later his banjo, guitar and playing piano, young Huey Long was beginning what would be nearly a century long career in jazz and pop music. An industrious young man, who was never afraid of work, he move to Houston, the Chicago and New York in an employment career that would range from shoe shiner to columnist, Wall Street messenger to account and building su ...

Well, its my last day in New York and my 2nd time on the internet ($8.50 for 15 minutes. money better spent elsewhere). I have done a lot of walking during my time here. I walked from Time Square to World Trade Centre on one day. TS to Wall Street on another day. TS to Chinatown on another day and spent time on an aircraft carrier and space shuttle. I went to a broadway show (Aladdin). Excellent show by the way. The next night they had the official celebrity opening which had Tina Fey in attendance. Not sure if I will get opportunity to update until I get back. I will if I can.

A Tribute To Alan Linton Jr. who died on 9/11/01. World Trade Center Iron Man No. 2 Like his hero, Cal Ripken Jr., he was a Maryland man, named after his father and known for his steely resolve. He too had estimable talents, but coasting was anathema: whenever nature didn't give him a boost, he just worked harder. And he always, always showed up. So Alan Linton Jr.'s buddies gave him his idol's nickname — the Iron Man. As a teenager, the future Iron Man, who had some heft, went out for wrestling and in his first year was trounced in every match. He kept training. The next year, he made it to the regionals. As an adult, Mr. Linton, a true country boy and family man, drove home every weekend to Frederick, Md., from New York, where at 26 he was an associate director at Sandler O'Neill & Partners. With his gift for analyzing numbers, he had always wanted to be a Wall Street success. But Mr. Linton's ultimate goal was not to live lavishly. Deeply committed to his faith — he taught adult classes most Sunday ...
It's Payback Time for McDonald's -- Lawsuits Could Force Company to Hike Wages McDonald’s workers across the nation have filed seven class-action lawsuits alleging that the fast-food giant practiced systematic wage theft of its workers. McDonald’s employees filed two lawsuits in Michigan, one in New York and four in California. The lawsuits name the McDonald’s corporation and McDonald’s franchises as the defendants. The lawsuit filed in New York alleges that McDonald’s employees are required to pay out-of-pocket for their uniforms and all uniform cleaning expenses. Those additional expenses really hurt already struggling McDonald’s employees, and they also violate a New York State regulation that requires companies to reimburse workers weekly for the cost of buying and maintaining uniforms. Meanwhile, the lawsuits filed in California allege that McDonald’s managers are constantly playing fast and loose with employees’ hours in attempts to keep down costs, which violates federal wage and ** ...

FDIC Sues 16 Mega-Banks and British Banks' Association Over LIBOR Interest-Rate Rigging On Friday the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation filed suit against 16 of the world's mega-banks, and against the British Banks' Association, for colluding to rig the interest-rate-reference figure, the Libor (London Interbank Offered Rate). This action follows many other lawsuits against Wall Street banks for Libor-rigging, filed over the last 50 months by municipalities and other entities looted by the mega-banks through Libor-based interest rate swaps and other scams. The pattern and evidence of fraud are overwhelming, which only shows the necessity to stop the whole game, by re-instating the Glass-Steagall Act in the United States. Legislation is ready and waiting in Congress. The new FDIC lawsuit, filed in the Federal District of New York, charges that the conduct of the accused entities caused significant losses to 38 banks that the FDIC had to take into receivership since 2008. This list of stricken banks inc ...

Wall Street bonuses, just in New York last year, totaled $26.7 billion dollars. That total was $11 billion more than all the minimum wage workers in all of America the previous year, yet there are over 6.5 times more employees making minimum wage than there are Wall Street employees accepting bonuses. And these are just their bonuses!! It's this type of inequality that dampens economic growth and increases the number of folks living in poverty.

Just wanted to thank Art Clayman and the Schenectady Gazette for publishing my op-ed piece today. It meant a lot to me. Let Schenectady County enforce restriction on sales of loose cigarettes Sunday, March 9, 2014 By Joyce Wachala/For The Daily Gazette I’ll admit it, I am totally out of the loop when it comes to modern communication ... and for me, texting and “urban slang” both fit into this category. Thankfully, during the Feb. 24 Schenectady City Council meeting, I was introduced to and educated on the word “loosies.” Having never heard this term before and after doing a little research, I found out that a “loosie” is an individual cigarette that is bought or sold. Being a non-smoker my entire life, this really wasn’t something that interested me until I learned that Mayor Gary McCarthy was trying to amend the city code to make the selling of loosies a crime. Coincidentally, selling loosies is illegal in New York State. According to the State Department of Taxation and Finance, cigarett ...
Building Bridges, Tuesday at 11AM: New York is among the most unequal cities in the US. This inequality has become the most pressing issue in New York City and New York State. The good news is New Yorkers are demanding action - and now a broad coalition of organizations has a plan to help create a New Economy that serves the needs of working families and their communities. New York City is uniquely positioned to lead the way in holding Wall Street to a new standard. The city and its related authorities and has the financial leverage and economic power to demand that Wall Street fundamentally change how it relates to our communities. New York City should not be a passive participant in a market that is rigged by the financial sector. With hundreds of billions of dollars to shop on financial services, the City can shape the market. And: Hodgson Brown explains the rationale behind state owned banks. For Michigan, California, Florida, and other states looking to solve their economic problems, the state owned ...

Emailed letter to Mayor Bill De Blasio and New York State Senator Jose M. Serrano Dear Sir, I've sent you an email copied to Mayor De Blasio. Following is a copy of the contents of the email sent this day. ~ Dear St. Sen. Serrano; I've reached out to the Mayor of New York on the necessity of attaching a 1% tax to the trades Wall Street makes daily, annually. The revenue generated from such an unintrusive fee would power this STATE for the foreseeable future and leave us with a considerable surplus. Right now Wall Street is realizing unimaginable profits, while the rest of the state struggles and cuts are considered for those least able to take it, as they are already dying by a thousand cuts. Mr. Serrano, please reach out to Mayor De Blasio and become heroes and historical to the writing of the successes of our state. Thank you, Ann E. cc: Mayor De Blasio

Kirby McInerney, based in New York, will oversee about a dozen lawsuits alleging that some of the world’s biggest oil companies, including BP Plc (BP/), Statoil ASA (STL) and Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA), conspired with Morgan Stanley (MS) and energy traders including Vitol Group to manipulate spot prices for more than a decade.

About: Jalal Mansur Nuriddin Author- Jalaluddin Mansur Nuriddin (born in 1944) is one of the founding members of The Last Poets, a group of poets and musicians that evolved in the 1960s out of the Harlem Writers Workshop in New York City. He was born in Fort Green in Brooklyn, New York, USA. In his earlier career he used the names Lightnin' Rod and Alafia Pudim. He is often dubbed "The Grandfather of Rap". Biography: A devout Muslim, poet, acupuncturist, and martial art exponent (a practitioner of a form of Bak Mei), he was incarcerated and was given early release on condition that he join the US Army, where he trained as a paratrooper but was imprisoned again within the Army for refusing to salute the Flag. He did, however, received an honourable discharge and went to work for a bank on Wall Street. It was his experience there that spawned his poem "E-Pluribus Unum", released on Bill Laswell's label Axiom Records, a subsidiary of Chris Blackwell's Island Records. Jalal converted to Islam and learned to s ...
Montgomery Clift, Actor, b. October 17, 1920, d. July 23, 1966. Monty Clift was born in Omaha, Nebraska. Oddly enough, his father was a successful Wall Street stockbroker who was always in New York on business. Considering transportation speed in the 1920s, this was quite an achievement for Monty's father, but it kept him out of his son's life most of the time and forced his mother to play both parental roles. Until the Stock Market Crash, the Clifts led a fairly extravagant lifestyle, with frequent trips to Europe and Bermuda, where they had a second home. After the Stock Market Crash, which happened when Monty was 13, the family moved to Sarasota, Florida and began a more modest lifestyle. It was in Sarasota that Montgomery began his acting career, joining a local theatre group. When it became clear that Monty was a natural on the stage, the family moved to Sharon, Massachusetts, allowing Monty to audition on Broadway and secure his first Broadway role in Fly Away Home. After Fly Away Home ran for two s ...

Finished Cape Fear. Loved it! Martin Scorsese delivers another brilliant film, never dissapointing. He is truly one of my favourite directors, next to Quentin Tarantino. Robert De Niro is flawlessly brilliant yet again in his role, Juliette Lewis is very, very good as always. Nick Nolte is very good in his role playing a different character un-like he's played before. Jessica Lange is very watchable and keeps you hooked. Overall: 9/10= This man can't do anything wrong, sum-up of his films: Taxi driver= Very good Goodfellas= brilliant Casino= Brilliant The Departed= brilliant The Aviator= brilliant Gangs of New York= brilliant Raging Bull= Brilliant Catch me if you can= Brilliant Wolf of Wall Street= Brilliant Hugo= brilliant King of Comedy= very good and this= Brilliant I love Martin Scorsese and always will do for these films :).
Jacob Henry Schiff (born Jakob Heinrich Schiff; January 10, 1847 – September 25, 1920) was an American banker, businessman, and philanthropist. He helped finance, among many other things, the Japanese military efforts against Tsarist Russia in the Russo-Japanese War. Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Schiff migrated to the United States after the American civil war, and joined the firm Kuhn, Loeb & Co.[1] From his base on Wall Street, he was the foremost Jewish leader from 1880 to 1920 in what later became known as the "Schiff era", grappling with all major Jewish issues and problems of the day, including the plight of Russian Jews under the Tsar, American and international anti-semitism, care of needy Jewish immigrants, and the rise of Zionism.[2][3] He also became the director of many important corporations, including the National City Bank of New York, Equitable Life Assurance Society, Wells Fargo & Company, and the Union Pacific Railroad. In many of his interests he was associated with E.H. Harriman.
Top traders to set up Asia hedge fund Two former top traders at Goldman Sachs and Noble Group are planning to form a hedge fund in Asia, a source with knowledge of the matter said, in another high profile launch in the region. According to Reuters, fund’s creation comes as global regulatory changes restrict banks from trading with their own money, forcing so-called proprietary desk traders to strike out on their own. It also comes as investor interest in hedge funds in Asia makes its strongest comeback since 2007 and on the back of the industry’s strong performance in 2013. Leland Lim, who was the co-head of macro trading for Asia Pacific ex-Japan at Goldman Sachs Group Inc, is teaming up with Allan Bedwick, the former head of macro trading in Asia for Noble Group, to launch a macro hedge fund in the second or third quarter of 2014, the source said. Lim, who joined Goldman in New York in 1997 on the foreign exchange options desk, retired last month from the Wall Street bank, while Bedwick quit the Si ...

I listened to the X22 report yesterday, the topic was false flags. The Super bowl, nerve gas in the CO2 soda dispenser , screw the NFL, anti gun fagot promoters. I'm glad they're 18,000 tickets short. The second topic was a little more interesting, New York, Feb 11, Iran peace talks, DHS is having a training drill concerning back pack nuclear weapons. At the same time the FBI issues a memo stating that they have know way of detecting such a weapon do to all the radiological medical procedures. Humm.. These multinationals hate NY. They also talked about the vote being rigged in Virgina and other places. When Virgina went Democrat I knew it was rigged. He said that they are going to fade out the Republican Party within 10 years. What they are doing is giving all these Republicans multimillion dollar jobs in these Wall Street corporations.

Yesterday me and my friend Niall Ferguson went to Cineworld Union Square to see the new action thriller film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit starring Chris Pine, Keira Knightley, Kevin Costner and Kenneth Branagh. In Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit Chris Pine and Keira Knightley star in an edge-of-seat espionage thriller about a rookie CIA analyst uncovering a sophisticated terrorist plot. Young recruit Jack Ryan (Chris Pine - This Means War, Star Trek films) thought he had a straightforward desk job at the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) headquarters based in the Wall Street area of New York. But then he uncovered a plot that could bring the world to its knees without a single shot being fired. Jack's boss William Harper (Kevin Costner - Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves, The Untouchables) promptly reassigns him to operational status and sends him on a dangerous mission to Moscow, where the sinister Viktor Cherevin (Kenneth Branagh - Frankenstein, Valkyyrie) awaits. But Jack has lied about his covert job to wife Cat . ...

Tv Tropes How i meat you mother wild mass guessing page Harold and Kumar takes place a few years prior to How I Met Your Mother Although briefly reuniting at Christmas in 2006, Harold and Kumar's constant fighting eventually broke the pair up again. Kumar did, however, get his life together. He went into medical school, but his constant smoking prevented him from becoming a doctor, so he ended up taking psychology and becoming a therapist instead. Angry at himself for allowing marijuana to yet again interfere in his life, angry at his girlfriend for enabling him, he finally quit, left her, moved to New York, and changed his name to Kevin. Harold, meanwhile, without the calming influence of Kumar on his life, gradually got more and more jaded and cynical by working in corporate America. He, too, changed his name, not because he was ashamed of it, but because Jeff Coatsworth was a more effective name for Wall Street than Harold Lee. Additionally, "Neil Patrick Harris", as seen in the film was in fact Barney ...

His estate outside New York City is now Harriman State Park. He died on September 9, 1909.
Greenback remains strong, set for largest week gain in two months The dollar clawed higher on Friday, and looked set for its largest weekly gain in two month as forex investors bet that upcoming US data will reinforce the Federal Reserve’s view on more tapering. The Dollar Index (DXY) edged above 81 on Friday, after dipping lower yesterday after data showed a n unexpected leap in continuing jobless claims. The continuing claims figure at 3.030 million for the week ending January 4th was the biggest number since July. EUR/USD rose to 1.3650 yesterday after the weekly jobs print but the greenback recovered and the pair fell to 1.3583. Other data this week including advance retail sales, initial jobless claims and the New York factory index were all better than analysts’ estimates which prompted traders to speculate that the Fed will not slowdown the pace of tapering. USD/JPY was rather quite on Friday, and remained in a tight range between 104.20 and 104.42. Wall Street shares were under pressure yester ...

"THE WOLF OF Wall StREET howls at a moon hanging high above an atavistic America. This cinematic exploration of excess is a cautionary tale, administered like a dangerously addictive drug by a master of cinema. Here, Martin Scorsese and his talented team – with Terence Winter’s script as guide – write another chapter in the history of New York crime families, with Leonardo Dicaprio’s fearless performance hypnotizing those who believe that money matters above all else. Complicit in his transgressions is an all-star ensemble – with Jonah Hill emerging as his colorful partner in crime."

isn't Wall Street that street in New York with the writers or something like that
"Real success comes with balance". Glenn Bland in his book, "Success" shows vividly that success is much more than money. Bland tells of a meeting held at the Chicago Edgewater Beach Hotel in 1923 by the world's most successful financiers at that time. At the meeting was; Charles Schwab, president of the largest Steel company in America. Samuel Insull, president of the largest utility company. Howard Hopson, president of the largest gas company, Arthur Cuffen, the largest wheat speculator, Richard Whitney, president of the New York Stock Exchange. Albert Fall, secretary of the interior in president Harding cabinet. Jesse Livermore, the greatest "bear" on Wall Street. Ivar Krueger, head of the World's greatest monopoly. Leon Fraser, president of the bank of International settlements. These men were the shakers and movers of their time. Yet, something went terribly wrong with their lives. Twenty-five years later, this was their situation. Charles Schwab went bankrupt and lived d rest of his life on borrowed ...

On Brian Lehrer today, find out what legal and financial lessons the film THE WOLF OF Wall StREET holds and why critics say it glorifies Wall Street misdeeds.

Morning headline: NYC has ended a controversial program in which mentally ill inmates were placed in solitary confinement for breaking the rules.

Beating The Street January 12, 2014 Volume II, _ Editor's Note. - It's 63 years since I arrived at 14 Wall Street with my cardboard suitcase, my inappropriate B.A. and the lunch money Mummy had pinned inside my Brooks Brothers seersucker (with the admonition that Neidicks was a rip-off). Much have I traveled in the realms of avarice since, but I was soon to ask, like stout Cortez, "But where, Senor, is the gold?" This issue will repeat that question. _ The Market in 2014 Will Continue To Fluctuate In August of 1987, I conducted a survey of 10 financial experts from New York to Seattle on the market outlook for the balance of that year. Nine of them, research analysts, brokers, CNBC traders and a single country soothsayer in Des Moines, were emphatic that marketwise it would be boots and saddles right up to and including the Santa Claus Rally. All alone among these Raging Bulls, the tenth financial guru advised me to short the Dow, apply for food stamps and to buy no green bananas. He was my haberdasher an ...
Bill De Blasio is now Mayor of New York, whose residents include the world’s richest -- the captains of American industry, the titans of Wall Street. But also 52,000 homeless, of whom 22,000 are children – the highest level of homelessness since the Great Depression. New York is a microcosm of America. The Right sees nothing alarming about this degree of inequality, but it threatens the social fabric of our society, hobbles the economy, and undermines democracy. "We are called to put an end to economic and social inequalities that threaten to unravel the city we love," de Blasio said in his inaugural. "And so today, we commit to a new progressive direction in New York.” Does de Blasio’s election mark the beginning of a new progressive era similar in scope and achievement to the one that began in 1901, when another New Yorker, Teddy Roosevelt, became President of the United States?
The secret of Riza's success: 'Paris Hilton, Jho Low and family money' - As if his purchase of a RM110 million New York apartment is not enough to give his mother and stepdad a bad rap, but filings in a Los Angeles Court is bound to give more fodder to critics of upcoming film producer Riza Shahriz Abdul Aziz and his mother Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor – and by extension, her husband Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak. Claims of cavorting with Paris Hilton, using his "family money" and a penchant for "unethical conduct" in getting deals, are contained in filings in July in a Los Angeles Court in a suit by two Hollywood producers. If that is not enough, a picture of Penang businessman Low Taek Jho (Jho Low) at the launch of The Wolf of Wall Street which Riza's Red Granite Pictures is producing, earlier this year seems to confirm that he is also a bank roller for Riza. Riza, 36, who is chairman of Red Granite Pictures had sued producers Brad Krevoy and Steve Stabler to exclude them from any payment or cred ...

Why Inequality Matters By PAUL KRUGMAN Rising inequality isn’t a new concern. Oliver Stone’s movie “Wall Street,” with its portrayal of a rising plutocracy insisting that greed is good, was released in 1987. But politicians, intimidated by cries of “class warfare,” have shied away from making a major issue out of the ever-growing gap between the rich and the rest. That may, however, be changing. We can argue about the significance of Bill De Blasio’s victory in the New York mayoral race or of Elizabeth Warren’s endorsement of Social Security expansion. And we have yet to see whether President Obama’s declaration that inequality is “the defining challenge of our age” will translate into policy changes. Still, the discussion has shifted enough to produce a backlash from pundits arguing that inequality isn’t that big a deal. They’re wrong. The best argument for putting inequality on the back burner is the depressed state of the economy. Isn’t it more important to restore economic ...
A Modest Proposal For Preventing Wall Street Types From Being a Burden to Their Country, and For Making Them Beneficial to The Public With Apologies to Jonathan Swift It is a melancholy object to those who walk through this formerly great city of New York, when they see the streets crowded with pasty-faced, dull-eyed and slack-jawed Wall Street types, silently importuning of every pedestrian to be regarded as innocent dupes of a mysteriously flawed financial system which, like a force of nature, simply swallowed up millions of peoples’ retirement accounts five years ago--as if by an Act of God and not an Act of Greed. I think it is agreed by all parties that this prodigious number of Wall Street scumbags allowed to walk the earth, is in the present deplorable state of the kingdom of America a very great additional grievance; and, therefore, whoever could find out a fair, cheap, and easy method of making these people sound, useful members of the commonwealth, would deserve so well of the public as to hav ...

Change is a comin’ for Fall ’14. Today IMG announced its plans to revamp the frenetic circus that is New York fashion week via redesigned Lincoln Center venues with smaller audience capacities and bigger backstage spaces. The hope? That the update will reduce the presence of crowds, celebrity stalkers, miscellaneous non-fashion-related showgoers, aspiring street-style stars hoping to get papped, and general riffraff that often turns the delight that is NYFW into a bit of a hassle (to put it lightly) for buyers, journalists, stylists, and other industry professionals. Yesterday The Wall Street Journal reported that it’s going to be decidedly harder to get tickets this season. An IMG representative told the paper that media guests will be cut by 20 percent in an effort to focus on attendees who are “of value to the designer.”
Leonardo Dicaprio Says "Vacation" From Acting Is Almost Up turns out that Leonardo Dicaprio's "long, long break" from acting is already almost up! But even though it seems as if he didn't take a break at all, considering he was on the big screen in The Great Gatsby in May and will return to theaters Christmas Day in The Wolf of Wall Street, he really did lie low for a while. "I think it's more of a vacation or a hiatus," DiCaprio clarified to E! News at the New York press junket for Wolf, his fifth starring turn for director Martin Scorsese. "I've already taken a lot of time off." And though the 39-year-old actor, who was photographed surfing and jet-skiing in Miami on Dec. 4 before hitting the road to promote his movie, does a bang-up job making the most out of his vacation time, he's just about ready to sink his teeth into another good role.

I was born in New York City, the son of Lewis Atterbury Stimson, a prominent surgeon. I was brought up in part by My grandfather in New York. He was educated at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, where he gained a lifelong interest in religion and a close relationship with the school. He was a trustee for many years. He then attended Yale College where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He joined Skull and Bones, a secret society that afforded many contacts for the rest of his life.[1] He graduated in 1888 and then attended Harvard Law School, graduating in 1890, and joined the prestigious Wall Street law firm of Root and Clark in 1891. He became a partner in 1893. Elihu Root, a future Secretary of War and Secretary of State, became a major influence on and role model for me.

THE LATEST So far, once thought major front-runners by most -- 12 Years a Slave and Gravity -- haven't done so well in the early awards season while the first Best Picture winners belong to Inside Llewyn Davis (Gothams), American Hustle (New York Critics) and Her (National Board of Review). My previous American Hustle, simply doesn't have what it takes to win the Oscar in my estimation and after winning with the New York critics it's complete absence from the National Board of Review is notable. 12 Years a Slave is now faced with what will be a rising tide in Saving Mr. Banks while Gravity will slowly settle to the middle of the pack and take home several technical awards. Films to keep an eye on, however, are Nebraska, Inside Llewyn Davis and The Wolf of Wall Street, though something tells me the latter of the bunch may be a bit too edgy to truly compete for the big prize, though Jonah Hill may prove a strong competitor in Supporting based on early buzz.

International News: Quiet Boss at Citigroup Setting Tone for Wall Street Michael L. Corbat, head of one of the biggest banks in the world, recently strolled through Marea, the Central Park South restaurant where Manhattan’s elite go to be seen. No one in the crowded room even looked up. A top New York lawyer dining there that evening was asked about Mr. Corbat. “Mike who?” he said. Flying under the radar appears to be just fine with Mr. Corbat — and with Citigroup, the financial giant he has run since October 2012. To be a prominent face of Wall Street at a time when banks are feeling the heat from federal authorities on a number of fronts clearly has its drawbacks. Mr. Corbat’s counterpart at rival JPMorgan Chase, Jamie Dimon, has been widely viewed as the point man for the bank as it wrestles with investigations by at least seven federal agencies, several state regulators and two foreign nations. And under Mr. Dimon, JPMorgan has in just a few years gone from a Washington favorite to a magnet ...

WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans don't trust each other anymore. We're not talking about the loss of faith in big institutions such as the government, the church or Wall Street, which fluctuates with events. For four decades, a gut-level ingredient of democracy — trust in the other fellow — has been quietly draining away. These days, only one-third of Americans say most people can be trusted. Half felt that way in 1972, when the General Social Survey first asked the question. Forty years later, a record high of nearly two-thirds say "you can't be too careful" in dealing with people. An AP-GfK poll conducted last month found that Americans are suspicious of each other in everyday encounters. Less than one-third expressed a lot of trust in clerks who swipe their credit cards, drivers on the road, or people they meet when traveling. "I'm leery of everybody," said Bart Murawski, 27, of Albany, New York. "Caution is always a factor." Does it matter that Americans are suspicious of one another? Yes, say worrie ...

The Oyster World December 10, 2013 Volume I, _ Falstaff: I will not lend thee a penny. Pistol: Why then the world's mine oyster, which I with sword will open. - William Shakespeare The Merry Wives of Windsor _ A re-take... Let Us Now Praise Max Shulman One of my fondest memories is that of my late lamented brother Jack and me, in the unbearable summer of New York in the Fifties, (”it's not the heat, it’s the humidity”) lying around on weekends, fans blowing – nobody in those halcyon days had air conditioning, at least in Jackson Heights. A beaker of Jim Beam would be stationed between us, as we read aloud to each other the collected works of Max Shulman. Jack was a bright young architect in Manhattan, eventually to become a VP in a visionary firm that created much of L.A.'s skyline. I, the younger by three years, occupied a trading desk on the 30th floor of a Wall Street house. (Thereby lies a back story: in that icon of investment banking enterprise, there was employed a full-time Civil Defense C ...
Revealed – the capitalist network that runs the world Updated 13:15 24 October 2011 by Andy Coghlan and Debora MacKenzie AS PROTESTS against financial power sweep the world this week, science may have confirmed the protesters' worst fears. An analysis of the relationships between 43,000 transnational corporations has identified a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy. The study's assumptions have attracted some criticism, but complex systems analysts contacted by New Scientist say it is a unique effort to untangle control in the global economy. Pushing the analysis further, they say, could help to identify ways of making global capitalism more stable. The idea that a few bankers control a large chunk of the global economy might not seem like news to New York's Occupy Wall Street movement and protesters elsewhere (see photo). But the study, by a trio of complex systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, is the ...
MasterCard's Indian-origin CEO among Fortune's top 50 businessmen Press Trust of India | Updated: November 21, 2013 21:34 IST New York: Two Indian-Americans are in Fortune magazine's annual list of the top 50 people in business in 2013. MasterCard's India-born CEO Ajay Banga and Workday co-CEO Aneel Bhusri are among the 50 top business leaders in the list, which is "filled with executives who defied expectations - buying a newspaper, leaving luxury for Apple - executed big turnarounds and delivered stellar results for their shareholders". A returnee to the list, 53-year-old Banga is ranked 15th. The move to cashless and mobile transactions is benefiting Banga's credit card company, according to Fortune. Some think the stock, now at $735 a share, could reach $1,000. Bhusri, 47, and his cloud-based financials and human resources software company Workday's co-founders and co-CEO Dave Duffield come in on the 37th spot. Workday's sales were way up in 2013, and the stock outperformed rival Oracle. Topping Fort ...

Thanks to my sweet friend Robin I was given the facts about me: I am obsessed with decorating for Christmas and my decorations have been up for over a week. I lived in Oklahoma City my Junior year of High School and hated it! 2 of my greatest friends in the world Robin Crafton Dias and Mary Courts McCammon and I all 3 worked together and all 3 had twins. my sister and first cousin have twins too. I am terrified of zombies, heights and have a fear of drowning. My Mother and my grandmother were the singing lounge acts for Holiday Inn and traveled singing for years I was in a bad accident in college and was upside down in a ditch in a bed of water moccasins. I heard a voice tell me to crawl out and I did! God saved me that day! I walked away unhurt. I have personally helped to save many lives in the last 20 years and feel privileged to have done so. I saw myself living in New York working in business on Wall Street. I chose nursing in Tn and Ms instead...hm I have a bucket list and have marked off several it ...
Amazon to begin offering Sunday delivery option for purchases First in line for the Sunday option, free to Prime members, will be LA and New York. And -- what's this? -- deliveries will be handled by the US Postal Service. Amazon will begin Sunday delivery of packages to customers in the nation's two largest cities later this month with the help of the US Postal Service. The Internet retail giant announced late Sunday that it would begin offering the delivery option for certain items in the New York and Los Angeles metropolitan areas on November 17. Amazon expects to expand the offering next year to Dallas, Houston, New Orleans, and Phoenix. "If you're an Amazon Prime member, you can order a backpack for your child on Friday and be packing it for them Sunday night," Dave Clark, Amazon's vice president of worldwide operations and customer service, said in a statement.

chuck gregory writes: NOBODY WORTH $31 BILLION IS GOING TO GO TO JAIL IN THE LAND OF THE FREE From Pamela Martens' Wall Street On Parade: "The madness extends to the city that houses Wall Street. The Mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg, has functioned as public servant to the people of the boroughs of Manhattan for the past 12 years. Magically, while ostensibly dedicating himself to public service over this period, the Mayor’s net worth has skyrocketed from $3 billion to $31 billion according to Forbes. Now we are learning that part of the Mayor’s business empire at Bloomberg LP was facilitating highly secure chat rooms for Wall Street traders, where the company vetted each trader before they could gain access, effectively keeping away the snooping eyes of the Feds. Wall Street traders had so much confidence in the security of these chat rooms that they turned them into market rigging mechanisms, openly engaging in collusion in their discussions, offering quid pro quo bribes, and turning the Lib ...

Richard Reich analyzes recent election results: "Pundits who are already describing the victories of Terry McAuliffe in Virginia and Chris Christie in New Jersey as a “return to the center” of American politics are confusing the “center” with big business and Wall Street. A few decades ago McAuliffe would be viewed as a right-wing Democrat and Christie as a right-wing Republican; both garnered their major support from corporate America, and both will reliably govern as fiscal conservatives who won’t raise taxes on the wealthy. They look moderate only by contrast with the Tea Partiers to their extreme right. The biggest game-changer, though, is Bill De Blasio, the mayor-elect of New York City, who campaigned against the corporatist legacy of Michael Bloomberg -- promising to raise taxes on the wealthy and use the revenues for pre-school and after-school programs for the children of New York’s burdened middle class and poor. Those who dismiss his victory as an aberration confined to New York are ...

The biggest irony of the last three decades is that the football field of American politics has moved to the right just as most Americans have slid downward. Ever since Ronald Reagan first peddled the snake oil of trickle-down economics, the rich have received a steadily larger share of the economy’s gains -- now the largest in over a century -- while the typical working American has lost ground. Executive pay is now 350 times that of the typical worker. Wall Street is still rife with insider trading and conflicts of interest. Meanwhile, real median family incomes continue to fall, even with two people at work (the typical family of the 1950s and 1960s could do well with one breadwinner); the typical college graduate is now saddled with debt (public higher education in the 1950s and 1960s was free); job security is gone; pensions are withering away. Yet we may be witnessing the rebirth of progressive politics: The person who is likely to win tomorrow’s race for mayor of New York by a large margin has ...
Confusion is what we see in the whole world today. Ask the question: why did the people in Egypt want to get rid of their king in 2011? Were they even Egyptians uprising? Who were the organizers and who is leading them today? What started the big rage in Libya? The answer, they say, is that they wanted democracy. Did the Libyans say that or did it come from other sources? Did all Libyans want to kill their king or just a few of them? Why did they hate their king? Why did they brutalize his body, even after his death, if democracy is all they were seeking? If democracy was all they were seeking, what then are they seeking in New York, California, Texas, Illinois, and other states throughout the United States, that already have democracy; as well as other countries.

In 1711, New York was growing quickly, and the growing needs of the city were often supplied by slave labor. Nearly 1,000 out of about 6,400 New Yorkers were black, and at least 40 percent of the white households included a slave. In these homes, enslaved workers cooked, washed, sewed, hauled water, emptied the chamber pots, swept out the fireplaces and the chimneys, and cared for the children. Along the East River they built, loaded, and unloaded, the ships. They cleared the land uptown, and then planted and harvested the crops. And up and down the narrow streets they pedaled their master’s goods and even supplied the city’s first fast foods—fresh oysters and steaming hot corn on the cob. As the number of slaves imported into the city soared, barrel makers, butchers, carpenters, blacksmiths, and tin workers began to purchase young enslaved men in order to teach them their trades. Typically, when a slave owner ran out of work, they hired their slaves out at half the rate of free labor. Often the sl ...

From then on the world has witnessed and felt the decline and disintegration of the family - the core of an ethical and cohesive society. According to British historian Anthony Sutton, it was Wall Street Jewish Banker, Jacob Schiff of Kuhn Loeb Bank, who brought Leon Trotsky – born “Lev Bronstein” – to New York in February of 1916. Trotsky recruited Russian Jews from the immigrant population of the Lower East Side of Manhattan and trained them as armed revolutionaries. On March 27th 1917, Schiff sent Trotsky and his group of Jewish communists off to Russia to lead a Marxist Revolution with no less than $20 million dollars in gold, today worth billions. That same month, the Tsar was forced to abdicate…and along with his family was placed under house arrest in St Petersburg. In August of 1917, with the Bolsheviks rising to power, the hatred of Trotsky toward the Tsar reached a fevered pitch and the Imperial Family were moved far from the sympathetic sentiments of the Russian people to Tobolsk in S ...

Wall Street down as focus shifts to earnings; IBM drags Reuters | Updated: October 17, 2013 19:43 IST New York: US stocks fell on Thursday as investors shifted their focus to earnings of heavyweight companies such as IBM, in the wake of an agreement by lawmakers in Washington to reopen the federal government and raise the debt ceiling. International Business Machines Corp was among the biggest decliners, hitting a two-year low a day after reporting a 4 per cent drop in third-quarter revenue, worse than expected, amid a decline in hardware and emerging markets even as it beat profit estimates. As of Wednesday's close, 61 companies representing 18.8 per cent of S&P 500's market-cap have reported, with revenues missing expectations by 0.5 per cent and earnings beating forecasts by 4.5 per cent, according to RBC Capital Markets. Earnings have been particularly strong for financials with results beating expectations by 6.2 per cent and year-on-year growth of 16.4 per cent, said Jonathan Golub, chief US market ...
IBM Q3 net income rises 6%, beats predictions YORK: IBM said that its third-quarter net income rose six per cent, but its revenue fell and missed Wall Street expectations. The company's stock fell in extended trading. The Armonk, New York, computing company earned $4.04 billion, or $3.68 per share, up from $3.82 billion, or $3.33 per share, in the same quarter last year. Excluding one-time charges, the company earned $3.99 per share, above Wall Street's expectation of $3.96. Revenue dropped 4 percent to $23.7 billion from $24.7 billion. That fell short of the $24.8 billion expected by analysts surveyed by FactSet. In after-market trading, IBM shares fell $11.23, or 6 per cent, to $175.50. They finished the regular session up $2.07 at $186.73. IBM said results for the July-September period were helped by lower expenses, including the absence of $408 million in charges related to job cuts that it logged in the year-ago period. International Business Machines Corp said it still expects to post an adjusted 20 ...
"Justice Antonin Scalia doesn't want to 'get upset' in the morning, we learned this week from his refreshingly candid interview in New York magazine. That's why he limits his newspaper consumption to The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Times -- reliably conservative outlets -- and avoids the 'so shrilly, shrilly liberal' Washington Post. In the car to and from the Supreme Court, he listens mostly to conservative talk radio, including the call-in show of his 'good friend' Bill Bennett, Ronald Reagan's secretary of education. Bennett's producers, Scalia says, 'keep off stupid people'. Now, Justice Scalia has a tough job and deserves all the peace of mind he can muster. It's too bad, though, that he feels it necessary to inhabit a media bubble where his ideological convictions are always confirmed and never challenged. He's hardly alone, of course: Plenty of other people -- maybe even a liberal justice or two -- confine themselves to an opposing media diet of NPR, HuffingtonPost.com, and The New York ...

A Small President on the World Stage At the U.N., leaders hope for a return of American greatness. Written by Peggy Noonan in Todays Wall Street Journal. The world misses the old America, the one before the crash—the crashes—of the past dozen years. That is the takeaway from conversations the past week in New York, where world leaders gathered for the annual U.N. General Assembly session. Our friends, and we have many, speak almost poignantly of the dynamism, excellence, exuberance and leadership of the nation they had, for so many years, judged themselves against, been inspired by, attempted to emulate, resented. As for those who are not America's friends, some seem still confused, even concussed, by the new power shift. What is their exact place in it? Will it last? Will America come roaring back? Can she? Does she have the political will, the human capital, the old capability? It is a world in a new kind of flux, one that doesn't know what to make of America anymore. In part because of our presiden ...
Jaye Yoder CRUZ'S WIFE IS A BANKSTER — HuffPo investigative reporter, Ryan Grim reports: "Members of Congress are afforded top-notch, well subsidized health plans, but they're nothing compared with those provided to top Wall Street executives who get some of the best health coverage on the planet. Cruz's wife, Heidi Nelson Cruz, is a regional head of a Goldman Sachs division. According to a 2009 New York Times report, top executive officers and managing directors at the bank participate in a health care program that costs Goldman more than $40,000 in premiums for each participant’s family annually. Cruz's family wasn't available for comment."

Then the angel of the LORD ordered Gad to tell David to go up and build an altar to the LORD on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite. So David went up in obedience to the word that Gad had spoken in the name of the LORD" (1 Chron 21:18-19). In 1857, an American businessman named Jeremiah Lanphier was sent out by his local church to begin a noon-day prayer meeting on Fulton Street, right around the corner from Wall Street in New York City. A simple prayer, a willing heart, and an act of obedience resulted in city transformation throughout the United States. However, at that very first meeting, no one showed up in the first 35 minutes. But Jeremiah waited. Gradually, six people wandered into the room at 35 minutes past the hour. Six months later, 10,000 people were meeting for prayer throughout New York City. This led to one of the greatest spiritual renewals in the United State's history. What would have happened if Lanphier had decided to abandon the idea after 30 minutes? In a small, darkened room ...
New York Thursday. Today it was time to head Downtown and into the Financial District. But first it was another water ride for our second and final meeting with the Statute of Liberty - this time in daylight. She was magnificent once again!! From there we headed into the Financial District and took in the various tall building designs including Trinity Church. I even had time to say "Your Fired!" In front of the Donald Trump Building. But it was not all about fun and frivolity today I had business to attend to in Wall Street so that I did - so if the Aussie Dollar happens to be on the rise I am happy to take the credit for it :)LOL. If you are wondering why so few shots of Wall Street it is because the security is so tight here it's unbelievable!! My MOST FEARFUL EXPERIENCE in all of New York was when Sharon spotted and disappeared into Tiffany & Co Jewellers. Somehow I managed to pull her out of the vortex and move on.
JG: J.P.Morgan accepted wrongdoing. Sept. 20--NEW YORK -- JPMorgan Chase & Co. has made a rare declaration for Wall Street: The nation's biggest bank admitted it broke the law. The financial giant acknowledged Thursday that it violated securities laws and agreed to pay fines of $920 million as part of settlements over the "London Whale" trading debacle. The Securities and Exchange Commission and other government authorities alleged the bank suffered widespread breakdowns in controls and management. Regulatory settlements are commonplace for big financial firms. But admitting to violations was seen as a first for a major U.S. bank after the financial crisis prompted calls for a crackdown on Wall Street wrongdoers. "It's a huge embarrassment," said Erik Oja, a banking analyst at S&P Capital IQ who covers JPMorgan. "The admission of guilt is a landmark." The SEC has historically let firms and their executives escape without admitting fault in its civil cases. The agency has favored the concession to help bri ...
- The dollar retreated and global equity markets were flat to modestly higher on Tuesday as Federal Reserve policymakers began a two-day meeting where they are expected to decide to begin to roll back the Fed's stimulus program. Wall Street stocks rose, leading some other equity gauges to eke out gains, after data on U.S. consumer prices added to sentiment that Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke will lead the U.S. Central Bank to begin to modestly trim back its bond buying at the end of its meeting. "The Fed is going to be very gradual in any tapering process, as the most aggressive estimates are $10 or $15 billion will come out" of the current monthly purchases, said Art Hogan, managing director at Lazard Capital Markets in New York. The avoidance of a military strike against Syria and global economic data that continues to improve also underpinned stock gains, Hogan said. U.S. consumer prices barely rose in August. However, gains in rents and medical care costs pointed to a stabilization in underlying inflation. ...

From Russia Today: The biggest fall: Lehman Brothers, 5 years on Published time: September 13, 2013 19:11 Edited time: September 14, 2013 16:41 The US is just emerging from the financial meltdown and experts are asking if it will happen again. Wall Street is “reformed” with new “anti-crisis tools,” while Lehman Brothers’ former CEO is tucked away in his $19 million Sun Valley, Idaho mansion. On September 14, 2008, Lehman was the fourth-largest investment bank in the US. On September 15, in the early hours of the morning, the firm filed for bankruptcy. Lehman went bust in a sensational downfall, as its stocks became valueless and the firm was downgraded by rating agencies. After a failed acquisition by Barclays and minutes before Japanese markets opened, Lehman declared bankruptcy, which eventually pulled the entire global economy into a tailspin. The day before Lehman announced bankruptcy, America’s secretary treasurer Hank Paulsen flew from DC to New York for an emergency meeting with Wall St ...
Hank Paulson: Another Financial Crisis Is 'a Certainty' Friday, 13 Sep 2013 12:41 PM By Glenn J. Kalinoski The crisis that brought the world to the brink of financial collapse five years ago could be repeated. That was the message from former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson when he appeared before economists and bankers at the meeting of the Economic Club of New York this week. He played a crucial role in attempts to save the financial system following the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers on Sept. 15, 2008. Paulson explained that he made mistakes during the crisis. "Almost every mistake was a communications issue," he said, adding that he is frustrated that Main Street doesn’t understand what he did "wasn’t for Wall Street; it was for them." Paulson listed reasons another crisis is a possibility, according to Bloomberg Businessweek. First, mortgage finance behemoths Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae remain government entities and it's politically problematic for the government to shrink them to a manageable si ...
