San Francisco Chronicle: "Trump’s inaugural speech: What experts say to look for"

. . . “If he wants to appear to be more presidential, he needs to try to reach out to all of America, not just to his more conservative followers,” said David Caputo, president emeritus of Pace University in New York. “That, I think, is his most difficult task, and his most difficult task during his presidency.”

Agenda, a Financial Times Service: "Will Trump Reduce the Risk Management Drag?"

Agenda, a Financial Times Service: "Will Trump Reduce the Risk Management Drag?"

. . . John Alan James, chairman emeritus of the Center for Global Governance, Reporting and Regulation at Pace University, believes the final legislation will ultimately be shaped by compromises that White House and congressional leaders hammer out.

“One can expect a major change in both attitudes and regulatory requirements for boards, executives and their oversight groups,” he writes in an e-mail. “One main goal would be the reduction in the amount of administrative staff and executive and board time(s) now required with current rules.”

A former management consultant with McKinsey and his own Belgian-based firm, James predicts that regulators will take a more lenient approach when examining board members who’ve been accused of violating risk management and compliance procedures. Currently, he writes, regulators consider such persons more or less guilty until proven innocent. Some regulators, he warns, even demand to interview all directors individually, especially non-executive directors.

Therefore, he expects directors in the U.S. will need to follow best practices for both setting risk policy and overseeing its implementation, just as boards governed by the European Union must. But under a Trump administration, James writes, compliance is likely to drift to a more principles-based, rather than the current rules-based, model.

Westchester County Business Journal: "Small business lending could get boost from Trump-era deregulation"

. . . Andrew Flamm, director of the Pace University Small Business Development Center in Manhattan, noted an entrepreneurial movement occurring on the fringes of the mainstream economy.

“We’ve seen a lot of individuals starting businesses on the side,” he said. “They have full-time jobs, but they are doing this on nights and weekends as their real passion. A lot of people want to transition from their day job to the small business. This approach lets people use that as a soft launch.”

Computerworld: "Obamacare repeal could hurt the gig economy"

. . . Older workers, said Bruce Bachenheimer, a professor of management and executive director of the Entrepreneurship Lab at Pace University, need health insurance. These are workers with the industry experience, contacts and ability to start a business. But access to health insurance, especially if they or a family member could be turned down because of a pre-existing condition, can play a major role in whether or not to start a business.

Express (Washington Post): "Hot or not? These four pieces of art illustrate beauty standards of eras past."

Express (Washington Post): "Hot or not? These four pieces of art illustrate beauty standards of eras past."

Beauty standards are so fickle, we’ve seen major shifts in just the past 30 years — from voluptuous, sporty ’80s supermodels to ’90s waifs and on to impossibly curvy Kim Kardashian types today.

If you take an even longer view, to a time when painters and sculptors — rather than photographers — captured and disseminated beauty ideals, taste starts to look even more arbitrary, says Pace University art history professor Janetta Benton, who will discuss Western artists’ idea of sexiness during Saturday’s day-long Smithsonian Associates class “Changing Ideals of Physical Beauty in Art: The Mystique of the Chic Physique.”

“Lucky is the person who was born in the right time in history when they were proclaimed the paradigm of beauty,” Benton says. “If you don’t like what you look like now, you can take consolation in the fact that you would have been considered wonderful at some point in the past or will be in the future.”

Variety: "Donald Trump’s Feud With CNN Threatens to Set Dangerous Precedent"

. . . “Soon-to-be President Trump has made it clear he feels the media is biased. It remains to be seen if the only penalty for incurring his ire is to deny a question,” said David Caputo, a professor of political science at Pace University in New York. “Looking forward, President Trump and the media will likely have a contentious relationship. How contentious remains to be seen.”

CNN: "Trump news conference takes on new significance"

CNN: "Trump news conference takes on new significance"

. . . "I would be very surprised if there is any change in his demeanor," said David Caputo, a specialist on the Presidency at Pace University, New York. "Look at what he has done since the election. There has not been any change. If there is going to be a change, I would expect that it would happen after the inauguration, and after he is convinced it is not going to work."
 
Caputo argued Trump will likely reason that he was elected to challenge the political system and establishment and that he would therefore see little reason to honor conventions in Washington.
 
"This is going to be an individual who is convinced that he is correct that the old system is corrupt and has to be changed. I think he will use the news conference accordingly," Caputo said.
