    AMD (NYSE: AMD) announced today that Martin Edelman has been appointed to the company's board of directors as a representative of West Coast Hitech L.P., an affiliate of Mubadala Development Company and AMD's largest stockholder. Edelman's appointment follows the resignation of Waleed al Muhairi after four years of service on the AMD Board.

    Edelman currently serves as Of Counsel, Real Estate Department for the law firm Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker LLP, a New York City law firm where he is responsible for real estate transactions as well as corporate mergers and acquisitions. He serves as a member of the board of directors at several private and public companies, including Avis Budget Group, Ashford Hospitality Trust and Capital Trust.

    Edelman is also a senior advisor to Mubadala Development Company, a strategic investment and development company headquartered in Abu Dhabi. He brings an extensive legal background to the board of directors, with more than 40 years of experience in the legal profession. He also holds a number of board positions for charitable organizations including Manchester City Football Club Charitable, The Intrepid Museum Foundation, Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, Fisher House Foundation, Tribeca Film Institute, Jackie Robinson Foundation and the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation.

    Mr. Edelman holds a Bachelor of Laws degree from Columbia Law School and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Princeton University.

    Separately, Craig A. Conway, a member of the company's board of directors since 2009, has decided to not stand for re-election at the company's 2013 annual meeting of stockholders in order to focus on his other business and personal interests.

    Bad times Ahead

    It's a pity that the U.S. is being bought up by the Chinese and other interest who are bleeding millions of U.S. jobs and currency from the U.S. by the Trillions of dollars annually while it all goes unnoticed by the U.S. populace.

    You know what else I hate? Hot beer. However like your post I'm not sure what it has to do with the OP.

    Beer tasting good only when they are cold are low quality/bad beers
    A good beer tastes good at room temp.

    I disagree. I've had a lot of supposedly good beers both room temp and cold, and I always find them tastier when they are cold. It might still be good in room temp, but not as good as when cold.

    well, that's what they tell in the Czech Republic when you ask beer and its not cold. Those guys invented beer in the city of Pilsen so I can imagine they know what they talk about... I mean I can imagine...
