USA Today: "Omnicom, Publicis merger fell over 'equal' terms"

. . . Not everyone is happy that the would-be union fell apart. "It now appears that management teams put the interests of management teams before their clients. Ultimately, my prediction is that both Omnicom and Publicis will seek and find new companies to acquire and go back to serving their own clients well," says Larry Chiagouris, a professor of marketing at Pace University's Lubin School of Business in New York.

E-Commerce Times: "Facebook Seeks Better Fit With Small Biz"

E-Commerce Times: "Facebook Seeks Better Fit With Small Biz"

. . . The Facebook Fit boot camps can bring home to small business owners how easy it is to reach an audience for their products and services, noted Bruce Bachenheimer, a management professor at Pace University's Lubin School of Business.

"A big bulk of small businesses are people who don't use Facebook or only use it casually, so they wouldn't know how to use it to promote a business," he told the E-Commerce Times.

"They are a potentially huge, untapped market, and by investing a small amount of money in educating people and training them how to use it -- hand-holding them on how to use it -- it could really pay off, both in terms of additional revenue and driving interaction between small businesses and their customers on Facebook," Bachenheimer explained.

"This a bright strategy that could increase small business advertising on Facebook through word of mouth," he added.

Money: "American Airlines employees locked out of 401(k) funds"

. . . The real harm of frequent 401(k) trading isn't the trouble you could get into from a fund company, but the fact that you'll likely end up behind the market, says financial adviser and Pace University professor Lew Altfest.

Voice of America: "Russia-Ukraine Crisis Could Trigger Cyber War"

. . . "Social media, government administrations and national defense systems all rely on Internet communications," says Darren Hayes, a cyber security lecturer at Pace University.

"Cyber attacks will continue to be largely silent but potentially devastating during this conflict and could prove to be more decisive than trade sanctions or armed maneuvers," he said.

MarketWatch: "Facebook tackles its most annoying posts"

MarketWatch: "Facebook tackles its most annoying posts"

. . . Facebook’s list of potential annoyances — like a father’s seemingly innocuous post with the caption, “My Beautiful, Daughter” — was probably chosen as a possible offender because it might be considered boastful and may even upset the girl tagged in the photo, says Darren R. Hayes, assistant professor at Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems in Westchester, N.Y. “Facebook and its investors are continually concerned with maintaining interest with their younger users,” he says.

Because many adults have migrated to Facebook, younger people are drifting away from parental oversight in favor of alternative social media apps like Kick, Snapchat and WhatsApp, Hayes says. “The dating app Tinder has been extraordinarily popular with college students in recent times,” he says.

Miami Herald: "Carnival shifts strategy without losing brand identities"

. . . Andrew Coggins, clinical professor of management at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business, said buy-in from the rest of the company’s managers is crucial to make such an effort successful.

“As long as you have the support of the rest of the management, you can make the change,” he said. “But if there’s resistance with the other management, then it can become very difficult.”
