Will Apple free fall?  The sale of the stock was suspended before the man made his announcement: Steve Jobs has resigned as CEO of Apple the company he founded.  He has pancreatic cancer.  He said that he would resign when he could no longer carry out his duties. He is a cancer survivor for now but he also looks like a Holocaust survivor since his illness.  What’s next? Markets always said that Apple stock would nosedive if Jobs should ever leave like it did once at the mere rumor that he was to resign after he had the cancer The latest on the falling Apple stock.  It’s still pricey.  I sold mine too early.

Apple shares were suspended from trade before the announcement. They had gained 0.7 percent to close at $376.18.

The pancreatic cancer survivor and industry icon, who has been on medical leave for an undisclosed condition since January 17, will be replaced by COO and longtime heir apparent Tim Cook.

“I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come,” he said in a brief letter announcing his resignation.

Rebecca Nalepa found hanging outside of manse (Burmese born)–updated

Update at Radar:

Was Jonah (see his botox-filled face above) about to propose to Rebecca? They also report that she has a mugshot and a record of shoplifting.  But that’s a long way from suicide.  Suicide fits the Asian woman or man’s persona because they believe in rebirth and also saving or losing face.  Even if suicide was not on HER radar something happened that sounds more like suicide.  I think depending on how the hands were bound she could have first bound hands and feet and then had the noose or whatever ready to go.  This method would be a sure-kill one. 

Rebecca Nalepa (Burmese born Asian woman who wanted to revert to her maiden name, Rebecca Zahau )  was found Wednesday morning — naked, with her arms and feet bound with orange cord. Nalepa was in a courtyard at the 27-room mansion,which is just a few feet from the Hotel del Coronado and the beach. She was treated at the scene, but died in the courtyard, before she could be transported to a hospital.

Jonah Shacknai (Jewish) is the founder, chairman and CEO of Medicis Pharmaceutical Corp., which he began in 1988. Nalepa was Shacknai’s live-in girlfriend of 2 years.

His company is known for such successes as Restylane, a cosmetic wrinkle filler that is a competitor of Botox

And giving according to this quote

Tzedakah (charity) is more than a word to Jonah Shacknai. It’s a way of life. The founder and CEO of Medicis Pharmaceutical Corp. says his own success in business means he has responsibility toward those who have had fewer opportunities to achieve the same level of success.”

His son died also but in an unrelated accident we think.  But he was in the care of  Nalepa just five days ago when he fell in the mansion on one of the stairwells.   His fall killed him so, I guess no one was watching him, he was six.  Did this Jewish executive murder his girlfriend or did she kill herself because she  allowed his Jewish son Max to die? According to Facebook founder Jewish men LOOOOVE Asian women….he said it not me. But look out white women because I am seeing more and more Asian women (quite aggressive IMO) with white men arm in arm. Even though she was Burmese born she could still have been Chinese.

Reel Short Takes: Company Men

I did not see Company Men with Ben Afleck at the theaters but watched the DVD last night.  I liked it a lot for its direct and simple line drawn from the 2008 meltdown to the huge CEO salaries to the loss of millions of jobs.  The CEOs thought nothing of cutting out the heart of the company and downsizing with its employees.  No one is safe in this scenario including Ben.  It’s about how he gets his act together after losing everything but his family. He works in Boston at a huge shipping yard that builds ships, I think, not sure.  But it was shuddered when stocks tanked.

He lives in a fancy house and drives a Porche and must sell everything when his lifestyle is tied to his nearly 200K annual salary. While Wall street fat cats are off the hook, raking in millions in bonuses etc. while ordinary families suffer.  Too bad, so sad.  CEOs couldn’t care less about you and me.  But the feds seem to care about them. 

Will a woman replace DSK?

A woman named Lagarde has been touted as the next leader of the IMF.

DSK Steps Down To Protect IMF

Dominique Strauss-Kahn DSK has resigned his head post in the IMF and plead not guilty to the rape charges in a hearing.  Was bail set, not sure.  He wants a one million dollar bail.  But they also want to put electronic monitoring on him.  He should have kept his little pecker in his big pants. How ironic that a poor, immigrant, black, Muslim, hotel maid, woman from Guinea has squashed the career of what would have been the mark of the beast from the founder of the euro.  Kahn is Jewish, both parents were Jews.
