Keiser Report: Jihadists under your nose, go catch them (E621)

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert delve into the tangled web of debt and deception that led to the bond market selloff in 2013, the ongoing crisis of fraud and dark pools in London and falsified gold contracts in China. In the second half, Max interviews Ronnie Moas of PhilanthrophyAndPhil­ for the second half of their conversation about blacklisting 'bad' companies.

Afternoon Report
Twitter Names Ex-Goldman Banker Anthony Noto as Chief Financial Officer | In another shake-up of its executive ranks, Twitter has appointed Anthony J. Noto as its chief financial officer, Mike Isaac reports.

In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the company said that Mr. Noto will replace Mike Gupta, who had been Twitter's chief financial officer since December 2012. Mr. Gupta will become senior vice president for strategic investments, the filing said, overseeing a new division.

It is Twitter's second major change of senior executives in a matter of weeks. Ali Rowghani, formerly Twitter's chief operating officer, stepped down last month to act as a strategic adviser to Twitter. Chloe Sladden, a former vice president of Twitter's media division, also left the company last month.

Mr. Noto is a familiar face at the eight-year-old company. As a top technology banker at Goldman Sachs, Mr. Noto led Twitter through its initial public offering process in 2013, forging strong relationships with executives such as Dick Costolo, Twitter's chief executive. Mr. Noto announced his departure from Goldman Sachs in March, and planned to take a position at Coatue Management as a senior managing director working with tech start-ups.

The shifting in the ranks come at a crucial time for Twitter, which has seen widespread criticism from investors and analysts for problems with attracting new users to the service. The company's stock has lost nearly half its value since its record close of $73.31 on Dec. 26Read more »
