Metro: "Training the next generation of Hollywood performers"

Metro: "Training the next generation of Hollywood performers"

Traditionally, university theater programs have been just that — a way to train performers for a career on the stage. But one university decided that the old model was no longer working. “We have an obligation to train performers for the entire industry,” says Jorge Cacheiro, the executive director of Pace School of Performing Arts at Pace University. “Previously, students were being trained to go into the theater industry exclusively.” So earlier this month, Pace decided to go Hollywood — literally. The school launched a new Los Angeles-based acting and dance-intensive program for seniors getting ready to graduate this spring. For the last three weeks, in addition to taking classes geared toward performing on film, the selected students have been meeting with casting directors and producers. “We want to be the forerunner in bicoastal training,” says Cacheiro.

CNBC.com: "Why the Silk Road trial should matter to non-criminals"

. . . "What's most interesting about this case is that it is the first case in its enormity involving the Dark Net and it's going to be a wake-up for anyone using the Dark Net thinking they have anonymity.

The Hill's Congress Blog: "Local geopolitical rivalries and the puzzle of ISIS’s gains"

The seemingly illogical blood fest that has engulfed a central area of the Middle East known to the ancients as the “Fertile Crescent” has also mystified one too many of the outside observers, writes Michael Izady, a professor of Middle Eastern and Western history at Pace University in New York. An examination of its history and culture may help the Obama administration to make informed decisions about the role of the United States in the region.

U.S. News: "Land a Spot in a Top Online Master's in Criminal Justice Program"

U.S. News: "Land a Spot in a Top Online Master's in Criminal Justice Program"

. . .  Demonstrate your writing ability: Joseph Ryan, department chairman of the criminal justice and security department at Pace University, also tied for No. 2, says writing samples are hands down the most important part of the application to his program, more so than for students applying to an on-campus option. 

"The online environment is completely based on your writing skills," he says. 

Students should spend time crafting a well-written statement and polished resume to prove they can write well, he says, particularly since they will be spending so much time working on discussion board posts and other writing assignments. 

Show you can multitask: "Online education is all about time management," Ryan says. Put off studying for two days, in other words, and you'll be overwhelmed on the third. If students can tout their time management skills somewhere in their personal statement, he says they should absolutely do so.

Wall Street Journal: "Morgan Stanley Fires Employee Over Client-Data Leak"

. . . Although the stolen data likely can’t give potential thieves enough information to create a duplicate identity, it can provide an important first step, says Darren Hayes, assistant professor and director of cybersecurity at Pace University in New York.

“We are today still focused on Social Security numbers, but an email address and a phone number can provide a gateway to getting more information about you and it is valuable information to identify individuals with big bank accounts,” he said in a telephone interview.
