Washington Times: Aaron Alexis' history renews debate between mental issues, gun crimes"

 

. . . “He did go to a very dangerous facility, a place that would be quite dangerous for him. He’s going to a place where he most likely will be jeopardizing his own life,” said Richard Shadick, director of the counseling center and an associate professor of psychology at Pace University in New York City. “This was not a movie theater where you can get in and get out. This is a highly guarded facility. There most likely was some self-destructive intent here.”

InformationWeek: "Twitter Prepares IPO, Facebook Pain In Mind"

InformationWeek: "Twitter Prepares IPO, Facebook Pain In Mind"

. . . Darren R. Hayes, a computer science professor at Pace University in New York and a former investment banker, agreed in a phone interview that Twitter appears to have chosen to go public at the right time.

“The general market conditions are not unfavorable,” he said. “It may be a good time for Twitter to go public. There doesn’t seem to be too much negative information about the macroeconomic climate.”

Hayes suggests a repeat of the Facebook IPO disaster is unlikely. He blames the underwriter rather than the company itself for failing to attract enough support from institutional investors. He also notes that concerns about Facebook’s growth had been raised when GM publicly distanced itself from Facebook advertising (only to return a year later).

Hayes says that a concern among investors in social media companies is that company business models may be vulnerable to being copied. He doesn’t see that as an issue for Twitter in the near term, but he says it’s something to consider for any social media company.

Globe and Mail (Canada): "India leads emerging-market charge at G20"

 

. . . Surendra Kaushik, a finance professor at Pace University in New York, said the Indian government has yet to lay out a coherent plan for tacking the deficits or overall lagging economic growth.

Prof. Kaushik said that right now, the Indian government is making things worse. This week it passed a $20-billion food security bill, which would subsidize wheat, rice and other cereals for up to 800 million people.

“The government is handing out goodies they don’t have,” Prof. Kaushik said. “Each ministry more or less initiates its own programs. The finance ministry and the planning commission put them in the budget, and then they go to international markets to borrow the needed funds.”

CIO Today: "Should Microsoft Hand CEO Reins to Nokia's Stephen Elop?

 

. . . Joseph M. Pastore Jr., Professor Emeritus in Residence at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business in New York, told us what is happening at Microsoft is what happens to all innovative firms: The fate of the successful entrepreneur is ultimately her or his own demise. Elop probably can’t stem the tide.

“Ballmer was left to close the door on the firm’s entrepreneurial past,” he said. “As for who will open a new door, it’s little surprise that there is no ‘crowned prince.’ Structure follows strategy. Absent the latter, there can be no former. But, we’ll know it when we see it.”
