…Before losing his patience and wondering aloud what the hell she was good for if not bringing him hot tips.

FBI informant Roomy Khan, 53, told jury that she gleaned illegal tips on Polycom’s earnings from Sunil Bhalla, a former Polycom exec who was placed on leave in 2009. She then passed those tips to Whitman [Capital founder Doug Whitman] and a handful of other hedgie pals, including convicted Galleon Group co-founder Raj Rajaratnam and her bosses at Trivium Capital Management…“You know what would make you feel better?” Whitman asked Khan when she started complaining about her lot in life. “Calling Sunil and getting a good call on Polycom and being able to short it.” “Yeah, but I could go to jail for doing that, too,” Khan said. “[If] you’re not going to be a slimeball, what do I want to talk to you for,” Whitman said.

    What if I was to tell you that you could steal some information, trade on it, make a hundred million dollars, and not go to jail for it? Is that something you might be interested in?

    “[If] you’re not going to be a slimeball, what do I want to talk to you for,” Whitman said."

    "You shouldn't end a sentence with a preposition." said Khan.

    “[If] you’re not going to be a slimeball, what do I want to talk to you for, bitch?" Whitman said.

    Wife: My boss is an asshole, I hate my job.

    Me: I'm sorry. You know what would make you feel better? Blowing me.

    Roomy then said, "Doug, is it supposed to be this soft?" Then tore her glove off in disgust because Doug just wasn't trying.

    This is so subjective on who they get to turn on in these cases, it's like if they all point fingers does the case collapse? These laws need to be better defined http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304

    I was just seeking this information for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this type of informative websites in top of the list. Usually the top web sites are full of garbage.

    I am confused. A 1988 video indicates Obama endorsing wealth redistribution. Why just isn’t this deemed of considerably greater relevance than Mitt Romney’s from the cuff remark? n nWe really should also scorn the disgraceful behavior of Bill Kristol. His attack on Romney is neither accurate nor reasonable. Kristol seems to would like to continue on staying invited to your ideal parties while in the Washington corridor.

    Thanks for the points shared using your blog. Yet another thing I would like to talk about is that weight loss is not exactly about going on a celebrity diet and trying to lose as much weight that you can in a set period of time. The most effective way to lose weight is by acquiring it little by little and following some basic points which can enable you to make the most through your attempt to slim down. You may realize and already be following these tips, yet reinforcing awareness never hurts.
