Peter Ambrose serves as a member of the American Stock Exchange’s Disciplinary Committee. In this capacity, he works to ensure the continued fair and honest completion of investment trading and other stock market activities in the United States. The American Stock Exchange, or AMEX, operated as a member-owned mutual organization in New York City. Known as the New York Curb Exchange until the 1950s, the organization became the leading international stock market, listing more foreign issues than all other analogous markets in the United States combined. To this day, it remains a leader in both national and international financial sectors.
In October 2008, NYSE Euronext acquired the American Stock Exchange. NYSE Euronext currently operates as one of the leading and most diverse exchange organizations in the world. With this acquisition, NYSE Euronext cemented its place as one of the top three United States options marketplaces while taking on an enlarged leadership role in cash equities, structured products, and closed-end funds.
NYSE Euronext began phasing out the American Stock Exchange’s website in early 2009, after arranging to offer many of the same services through its own website. Interested investors who relied on the American Stock Exchange’s online information can now look up materials related to equities, indices, United States stock quotes, bonds, and exchange traded products at nyse.com.
Peter Ambrose supports Habitat for Humanity, Peter Ambrose Merrill Lynch
Peter Ambrose supports Habitat for Humanity, a Christian organization that builds homes for disadvantaged families and individuals throughout the world. With five hubs in North America, South Africa, Thailand, Slovakia, and Costa Rica, the group spreads its resources far and wide in an effort to reach underserved populations.
Habitat for Humanity also operates community-level establishments that function as independent nonprofit facilities. At this level, home building, fund-raising, and site selection exist as the main priorities. Volunteers additionally work to negotiate with mortgage companies and construction partners to aid in the organization’s efforts. Seeking to “eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action,” Habitat for Humanity selects homeowners based on several factors, including readiness to become involved in the program, the ability to pay back loans, and a high level of need.
Throughout the building process, Habitat for Humanity strives to create environmentally friendly homes, constructed with “green” materials. The organization places an emphasis on energy efficiency and sustainability in the building projects it undertakes. Over the years, Habitat for Humanity has attained an established and respected reputation as a successful nonprofit organization. Many celebrities and public political figures have supported Habitat for Humanity, donating both time and money to the cause. The outfit also affords young people the opportunity to get involved by sponsoring numerous youth programs, including the Collegiate Challenge, Campus Chapters, Youth United, and Global Village Trips.
During the weekend, I love to unwind by playing tennis at the local country club. While it is certainly a recreational activity, nobody likes to lose on the court. In order to improve your game and stay in peak condition, it is necessary to participate in some type of sport-specific workout or training program. Tennis requires a combination of speed, agility, and power, which means that a variety of training techniques should be employed. Because players exert bursts of energy over a prolonged period during the match, both aerobic and anaerobic activities must be integrated into a training regimen. Below are some of the best ways to achieve this combined approach:
Plyometrics: Through a combination of speed and resistance, plyometric training is ideal for developing the force needed for serves and forehands. Common examples of plyometric exercises include box jumps, bounding, and hopping. Upper body training can be accomplished by throwing medicine balls in different ways, such as slamming the ball into the ground, throwing it out from your chest, or heaving it straight up in the air.

Interval Training: Ideal for building endurance strength while preparing for the intensity of individual points, the athlete pushes to an anaerobic level for a short period, and then recovers while remaining in an aerobic state, repeating the cycle. The exercise develops cardiovascular capacity while maintaining Type II, or fast twitch, muscle fibers. Sprinting the straights and jogging the curves on a typical track is a common example of interval training.

Agility Training: Lateral quickness is essential for tennis success. One of the best ways to develop this type of speed is by training with the agility ladder, which is a tool that looks like a single row of hopscotch squares. Athletes go through the ladder with a variety of foot sequences to improve coordination and quickness. Running through various cone drills also vastly improves footwork.
