它例

Separately, top executives of Pixar, the animation studio founded by Steve Jobs and now owned by Walt Disney Co., received stock-option grants priced at the stock's annual lows in four years between 1997 and 2003.
Such a remarkable pattern of fortuitous timing raises questions about whether the options were backdated or otherwise manipulated to grant extra pay to the executives. Apple Computer Inc., where Mr. Jobs is chief executive, has said it discovered "irregularities" in its options grants, including one to Mr. Jobs, and may restate results because of them.



After questions about the grants were raised by The Wall Street Journal in early March, Mr. Alexander and Mr. Kreinberg lied to a company attorney, saying that the grants had been fortuitous, not backdated, the government says. With this information, the company falsely told the Journal that grants had been approved on the day the company said they had, according to the affidavit.

Because of the fundamental role of symbolization in almost everything we do, perhaps no aspect of human development is more important than becoming symbol-minded. What could be more fascinating, I concluded, than finding out how young children begin to use and understand symbolic objects and how they come to master some of the symbolic items ubiquitous in modern life. As a result of that fortuitous model-room experiment, I shifted my focus from memory to symbolic thinking.
