. . . While Mader was allegedly fired for his attempt to peacefully neutralize a volatile situation, law enforcement experts tell Newsweek that U.S. police departments need better de-escalation training. “It is lacking,” says Pace University professor and former New York City police officer Joseph Ryan, referring to the training. “I would give it a D grade. We don’t talk about it enough.... There seems to be an unofficial perception by some police officers that I am the authority figure and you will listen to me.”

New York Times: "Dance in NYC This Week"

BATTERY DANCE at Schimmel Center at Pace University (May 10-11, 7:30 p.m.). In celebration of its 41st season, Battery Dance, led by the artistic director Jonathan Hollander, offers four premieres that focus on themes of migration. In his own “On Foot,” Mr. Hollander takes inspiration from his company’s decade-long work with refugees and youth in conflict zones; it will feature visual design by Kevork Mourad, a Syrian-born visual artist who will create an immersive and ever-changing environment for the piece. Other works include Sean Scantlebury’s duet “Double Knot” and Hussein Smko’s “Echoes of Erbil,” a solo that uses words and movement to pay homage to the Kurdish region of Iraq.

Chicago Tribune: "Starting line: Career experts offer 2017 grads job-search advice"

05/03/2017

Chicago Tribune: "Starting line: Career experts offer 2017 grads job-search advice"

"Approach the job search like you would dating. It would be strange to have a dating profile that says 'I am willing to date anyone who will date me,' but you would be surprised to see how often students approach the job search saying 'I'll do anything.' Likewise, applying to 200 jobs with the same resume is like sending out a generic message to everyone on a dating site and hoping someone likes you. Instead, get to know more about the organizations you are pursuing, and show a genuine interest in them by building relationships with people who work there."

--Andrea Tider, career counselor, Lubin School of Business, Pace University, New York

"Don't take your mother's advice -- you really do need to talk to strangers. New grads need to realize the importance of building a network. Meeting new people is crucial to finding future job leads. Professional relationships are not just formed at official 'networking events' or conferences. You can uncover job leads in daily life: while volunteering, on line at the grocery store or even in waiting rooms. Talking to strangers and building connections on a regular basis is a key piece to any successful career."

--Bless Vaidian, director, career counseling, Pace University Career Services, New York

Associated Press: "YouTube ad boycott could spell trouble for Alphabet's Google"

Associated Press: "YouTube ad boycott could spell trouble for Alphabet's Google"

. . . the fallout from the YouTube boycott is likely to be felt through the rest of this year. Skittish advertisers have curtailed their spending until they are convinced Google can prevent their brands from appearing next to extremist clips promoting hate and violence.

"There is no entity in the world that is more risk averse than a senior marketing person," says Larry Chiagouris, a marketing professor at Pace University in New York. "They don't want to go with a media choice that presents problems for a brand, and they don't have to because they have many other choices."

Associated Press: "Google targets 'fake news,' offensive search suggestions"

. . . If too much misleading information appears in Google's search results, the damage could go beyond harm to its reputation for reliability. It could also spook risk-averse advertisers, who don't want their brands tied to content that can't be trusted, said Larry Chiagouris, a marketing professor at Pace University in New York.

"Fake news is careening out of control in some people's eyes, so advertisers are getting very skittish about it," Chiagouris said. "Anything Google can do to show it is trying to put a lid on it and prevent it from getting out of hand, it will be seen as a good thing."

Philadelphia Inquirer: "In China, a religious revival"

Philadelphia Inquirer: "In China, a religious revival"

. . . An expert on the church in China, Joseph Lee of Pace University, notes an interesting trend that is encouraging the expansion in Christianity: Migrant workers who have gone to cities for jobs and converted are returning home to spread the faith to remote areas not previously visited by Western missionaries or Chinese evangelists before 1949. "In many metropolitan cities like Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Beijing and Shanghai," he says, "Christian migrant workers from rural areas like Anhui and Sichuan provinces fill many church buildings."
