San Francisco Chronicle: "Video fuels Verizon’s $4.4 billion AOL deal; could Yahoo be next?"

San Francisco Chronicle: "Video fuels Verizon’s $4.4 billion AOL deal; could Yahoo be next?"

. . . “Huffington Post might be spun out for financial reasons, but that would be a mistake, because it is valuable content that Verizon needs to make the deal work,” said Larry Chiagouris, a marketing professor at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business in New York.

Bloomberg: "Elbow Room Coming to U.S. Skies as United Shifts Wide-Body Jets"

Bloomberg: "Elbow Room Coming to U.S. Skies as United Shifts Wide-Body Jets"

Coach passengers used to rubbing up against neighbors on crowded U.S. flights are about to get something unusual on a few United Airlines flights: elbow room.

As United shuffles its fleet and brings in a mix of new and used jets, it’s putting 10 Boeing Co. 777-200s on U.S. routes instead of just flying them abroad. A benefit for road warriors is that with two aisles instead of one, the wide-body 777 boasts twice as many of the coveted spots adjacent to those pathways as the narrow-bodies that predominate on U.S. routes.

“It would give people a higher percentage of aisle seats,” said Andrew Coggins Jr., a Pace University management professor in New York who has logged more than 1 million miles on United. “I prefer the aisle seat even if it means my shoulders get bumped by the flight attendants and all the people going by.”

E-Commerce Times: "The Great Apple Watch Marketing Mystery"

E-Commerce Times: "The Great Apple Watch Marketing Mystery"

. . . "My educated guess is that since this product will be sold in a different manner and more in line with the selling of luxury goods, the current Apple Genius employees may not be up to the task, and the selling process has likely emerged as the real bottleneck," said Larry Chiagouris, professor of marketing at Pace University.

Apple is probably "running as fast as it can to staff its stores with people who know not only how to sell computers, phones and tablets, but also how to sell luxury," he told the E-Commerce Times.

Los Angeles Times: "Europe grapples with deadly Mediterranean migration crisis"

Los Angeles Times: "Europe grapples with deadly Mediterranean migration crisis"

. . . “The root cause of the crisis is instability back in the home countries and the lack of opportunities for people to work,” said Pace University professor Andrew O. Coggins, Jr. “But that’s not going to be fixed anytime soon. All they can do, basically, is a rescue operation where you try to minimize the number drowning.”

Europe could make greater efforts to “take the money out of the whole system” by cracking down on the predominantly European-based migrant smugglers, Coggins said. Such an initiative would have to come from the United Nations, he noted, and even an effective police operation targeting the traffickers would do little to dissuade desperate asylum seekers still bent on getting to a better life.

Travel Weekly: "Shuffling the deck"

Travel Weekly: "Shuffling the deck"

. . . Andrew Coggins, a professor of management at Pace University in New York, who teaches courses on cruise travel and tourism, said all the new faces in the industry result from a generational changing of the guard.

In Coggins' view, the founding fathers of the modern cruise industry from the 1960s gave way to a second generation in the 1980s and 1990s. That generation has been in power some 20 years and is now yielding to the current crop of CEOs and brand presidents.

Gothamist: "Newtown Creek Shows Signs Of Poop-Fueled 'Superfood'"

Gothamist: "Newtown Creek Shows Signs Of Poop-Fueled 'Superfood'"

Since the start of spring, bright green patches have mysteriously appeared on Newtown Creek, the moat of man-made filth separating Brooklyn and Queens.

One sample, bucketed up off the Greenpoint side shortly after the first sighting on March 22, was revealed under a microscope to be an alga studied by a major chemical corporation for its healthy fats, and close kin to another heavily marketed in Japan as a potion good for everything from hair nourishment to jet fuel.

Pace University biologist Michael Levandowsky identified the Kelley green species as a type of Eutreptiella, a saltwater cousin of freshwater Euglena gracilis, a favorite subject for high school biology teachers. Both belong to the euglenid genus of microalgae. They're distant, harmless cousins of the tissue-boring, blood and lymph-feeding protozoan behind Chagas disease in South America and sleeping sickness in Africa.

Levandowsky has spent decades on a microscopic safari of New York Harbor, but was surprised when fellow scientists at CUNY LaGuardia Community College and grassroots environmentalists spotted this species blooming prodigiously in Newtown Creek.

"I haven't seen this before. It’s really interesting and unexpected,” Levandowsky said. Other common microorganisms in the Newtown Creek are dinoflagellates, which can result in toxic red tides but also bioluminesce; translucent nematodes (or “roundworms”); and diatoms, so renowned for their geometric beauty that mandalas have been made from them.
