    Former Bears Stearns Employee Victim Of Harassment By Pizza

    If you were going to try and extort money Bear Stears alum, how would you do it? Would you call him at his new job and talk trash about his wife? Would you call his house and tell his wife he was running around on her with another woman? Would you call his mother-in-law in New Jersey and breathe heavily into the phone? Or would you bring out the big guns and start sending pizzas, sometimes 20 at a time, to his home in New Canaan, as a sign you really meant business? Donato Anthony Minicozzi chose all of the above.

    Former Bear Stearns Chairman Ace Greenberg Came Up With The Idea For The New Yorker Pickpocket Profile, Holds Monthly “Gatherings” For The World’s Foremost Magicians

    Perhaps, some of you thought, that as he pushes 90, former Bear Stearns Chairman and CEO Alan “Ace” Greenberg would slow down a bit, as people his age tend to do. Retiring from his job at JPMorgan seemed unlikely– he’s only 85, after all– but maybe he’d dial back his time on the magic circuit. Perform old tricks for colleagues, strangers, and friends, rather than new. Just generally not stay up to date on the latest trends in magicianry. Luckily, these baseless assumptions could not be further from the truth. In fact, Ace is sharper than ever, routinely humiliating those half (and even one-sixth) his age while teaching them the ropes in an alley behind JPM HQ. How does he do it? By keeping himself engaged with the upper echelons of the magic community, for whom he hosts a regular salon d’enchantment each month.

    Financial Advisory Firm Not As Supportive Of Employee’s Dream Of Winning Survivor As One Might Have Hoped

    Roberta “RC” Saint Amour is a Bear Stearns alum, winner of the 112th Wellesley College “Hoop Rolling” Competition, member of the first inaugural Ladies of Investor Relations list, and a girl with a dream. That dream? Winning the new season of Survivor: The Phillipines. Starting tomorrow, viewers can watch her go head to head with former San Francisco Giants second baseman Jeff Kent and the actress who played Blair on Facts of Life and while RC believes her time on Wall Street has prepared her well (“If I know how to play with the big boys of Wall Street, I can certainly play with the little boys in the Survivor sandbox,”she says), the $1 million prize is not necessarily in the bag. And on the off chance she doesn’t emerge victorious, she’ll be looking to one of you for gainful employment, as the management at Landmark Ventures was apparently not interested in coming along for the ride.

    Newsday: You worked for Landmark Ventures before “Survivor” taped. What’s the status there?

    RCSA: They replaced me while I was gone, and I came back to no job, which was a little devastating — that’s the hardest part you go through with this wonderful experience: The sacrifices you make in order to have your dream come true. It’s tough sometimes, but I try not to think about it.

    Cold and, also, yet another instance in which we can say “Jimmy Cayne would’ve not only held her job open but watched every episode, with a wheelbarrow of Funyons and a childlike sense of wonderment that can only come with burning through his weekly supply of 90210 Kush in one sitting.”
