New York Daily News: "Donald Trump losing support of Republicans in unprecedented totals as his wild comments drive them to back Hillary Clinton"

. . . "It's very unlikely Pence would disavow his running mate," David Caputo, president emeritus and professor of Political Science at Pace University, told The News.

"Ryan still could, but it would take a lot more to do so," he said. "And given that he didn't after Trump's Second Amendment snafu, I'm not sure what it would actually take."

Ironically, Caputo added, there is an off-chance that a mass Republican migration to Clinton — so far, only a handful have said openly they'll vote for the Democratic nominee — could actually hurt the former secretary of state.

"Her campaign must be careful," he said. "Active support of Republican voters may raise issues with progressives and former Sanders supporters," Caputo added, before hinting that an unforeseen event — perhaps a terror attack, a stock market plunge or, unlikely as it is, a Trump exit from the race — could still further shake up voters' allegiances.

"Will something happen between now and Nov. 8 for those Republican voters to abandon Clinton for third party candidates, or to not vote or to even go back to the Republican Party?" he suggested.

"The only thing we really know about this race is that it's unconventional," Caputo added. "So expect the unexpected."

. . . Third-party candidates have made little impact over the last century in American presidential elections.

The most successful such candidates over the past four decades peaked in the summer before Election Day, only to fade by November — often because voters don’t want to “waste” a vote on a candidate who is unlikely to win, said Pace University political scientist David Caputo.

. . . Darren Hayes, an expert in computer forensics who’s a cybersecurity professor at Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems, said that to see all of Clinton’s emails would require access to her personal server and all other devices that were used to store her emails.

Crain's New York Business: "Recent college grads face a tough job market"

Crain's New York Business: "Recent college grads face a tough job market"

. . . "Companies are seeing their intern pool as a pipeline of talent as opposed to the good, old-fashioned way of going on campus and recruiting," said Helene Cruz, director of career counseling at Pace University. "While [campus recruitment] does happen, it doesn't happen like it used to."

Cruz's career-counseling team now advises students to get started early, encouraging aspiring professionals to begin building their résumés as soon as freshman year. Roughly 62% of recent grads have internship or work-study experience, a percentage that's held steady during the past four years. "You have to take advantage of all you can," said Cruz, who has been working at Pace for more than 14 years. "You can't wait until your junior or senior year to land your first internship."

San Francisco Chronicle: "What did The Donald mean and when did he mean it?"

Clinton and Trump offer voters distinct choices this fall on issues that shape everyday lives. Actual ideas are in play, as difficult as it can be to see them through the surreal layers of the 2016 presidential campaign. But decisions to be made by President Trump or President Clinton are going to matter to home and hearth. (AP Photo)

. . . as Pace University political science Professor David Caputo told the San Francisco Chronicle, small tweaks are OK, but if the commission dumps its rules to accommodate a low-polling Johnson, “I think it would be very difficult” to say no to Trump’s demands for, say, time slots that are likely to draw top ratings or “fair” moderators.

Meanwhile, if you want Johnson on the stage with Clinton and Trump, stay by your phone. You never know when a pollster might call.

Washington Times: "Facebook begins bypassing ad-blockers as software dents social network’s profits"

Washington Times: "Facebook begins bypassing ad-blockers as software dents social network’s profits"

Facebook is taking an aggressive new tack that blocks ad blockers on the desktop version of its service, insisting that well-made, relevant ads can be "useful." At the same time, the world's biggest social media company says it is giving users easier ways to decide what types of ads they want to see. Unless, of course, the answer is "none." (AP Photo/Jeff Chiu, File)

. . . “Facebook dominates social media because it has delivered a valued service to its users. But with its initiative to deliver ads to people who may not want to see the ads, Facebook is gambling with the relationship it has with its users,” Larry Chiagouris, a professor of marketing at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business in New York, said Wednesday in a statement to The Washington Times. 

“For a variety of reasons, Facebook will likely walk back this effort or modify it in such a way that users will continue to have control of their desktops,” Mr. Chiagouris said. “If Facebook does not do so, competitive forces will work in such a way to force it to do so.”

New York Daily News: "Silence by Trump adds to buzz that mogul could actually skip presidential debates — and if he does it would be ‘disastrous’ for his already flailing campaign"

A refusal by Donald Trump to participate in the presidential debates this fall would mark another bizarre and unprecedented move by the unusual nominee — but unlike some of his past unorthodox steps, experts say it would almost certainly destroy what little chance he could have left at winning the White House.

The Trump camp remained silent Tuesday amid growing buzz that the GOP nominee could very well sit out the trio of presidential debates, scheduled to take place starting in September, and the existence of which are a long-held custom in White House races.

And while the mogul's "behavior on the fall debates is consistent with his earlier conduct," explained David Caputo, president emeritus and professor of political science at Pace University, "for him not to appear would be disastrous for many reasons."

"One, the American public uses the debates to finalize their choices and also some make their decision based on the debates, two, he would miss the opportunity to have his largest audience and, three, he would have the opportunity to directly confront Secretary Clinton on her record and policy positions," Caputo told the Daily News.

E-Commerce Times: "Walmart Pursues Amazon at Jet Speed"

. . . Traditional stores of all kinds face the same challenge, noted Larry Chiagouris, professor of marketing at the Lubin School of Business at Pace University in New York.

What that amounts to, he told the E-Commerce Times, is "to keep prices competitive with Amazon while offering the personalized attention consumers have come to expect inside a retail store."

. . . "It's the perfect storm for Delta. Monday morning is the jumping off point for many road warriors so there are not a lot of spare seats on the competition," said Pace University business professor Andrew O. Coggins Jr., who teaches international management, hospitality and tourism management. "Delta will be lucky if they get caught up by Friday."

Playbill: "A Day In the Life of a Broadway Intern"

Playbill: "A Day In the Life of a Broadway Intern"

Kira Jones
Theatre Operations Intern at Jujamcyn Theaters.

Jones is a rising junior at Pace University, studying Arts and Entertainment Management.

What is a typical day like for you?
Jones: Theatre operations is really unique in that you get to work in the office, but you also get to work for the shows. Today for example, I got in the office at 12:00, but by 12:30 I was at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre to do something we call a “walk-in,” which is when I will go to one of our theatres and act as an assistant house manager. That’s been my favorite part because you get the practical customer service experience, and you get to meet all the patrons who come through the theatre—they could be celebrating an anniversary or even coming to their first Broadway show. At the office, one of the main things I do is coordinate lost and found.

What is the Jujamcyn office like?
Jones: We are right above the St. James Theatre where Something Rotten! currently plays. When you walk into our office, you have to walk through a hallway, which is next to the stage. During the matinees, you’ll see actors in their Renaissance clothing crossing through, or changing or sitting in the hallway waiting to go on stage. I remember Brian d’Arcy James would share candy with us. Depending on where you are in the office, you can hear the music from the show.
