The Barclays interns who received an absurd email about their upcoming summer at the investment bank may still have to provide their neckties for use as napkins, but it won’t come at the behest of the email’s sender, Justin Kwan, who, according to a source, lost two jobs this week after his missive leaked to the Wall Street Journal.
Exhaustion may have induced the epileptic seizure that killed a young Merrill Lynch intern in London. The coroner can't be sure, but she told reporters that fatigue is an epilepsy "trigger."
