Inc.: "What You Can Learn From Carly Fiorina's Smackdown of Trump"

Inc.: "What You Can Learn From Carly Fiorina's Smackdown of Trump"

. . . Her record at Hewlett-Packard, which she led form 1999 until 2005, is controversial at best. Under her leadership, the company’s share price decreased by more than half, she oversaw the layoffs of tens of thousands of employees, and she engineered a merger with computer maker Compaq that resulted in an ugly public feud with Hewlett family members. Fiorina was also ultimately fired by the computer company’s board.

With those things in mind, Fiorina’s strategy then, as now, is closest to something called agency theory, says Bruce Bachenheimer, a clinical professor of management at Pace University in New York.

Loosely defined, it describes the way public shareholders hire agents--such as chief executives--to make decisions for their companies. Sometimes these agents don’t work in the best interests of the company, Bachenheimer says, which could include having a greater appetite for risk than the owners have, because it’s not really their money at stake. And that appetite for risk sometimes increases as a company underperforms, because the agent’s skin in the game--such as stock options--are worth less. So it can cause an agent to aim for the bleachers, in an all or nothing strategy.

“For Carly Fiorina, it was worth taking a risk [in the debates], because the consequences would have been death by a thousand cuts, and becoming completely marginalized,” Bachenheimer say. “By attacking Donald Trump, she could get to five or seven percent in the polls.”

. . . Since her server was first installed in 2009, it most likely was a traditional hard disk-based device rather than a newer solid state unit — which only have become commonly used in the last two or three years, said computer scientist Darren Hayes. Solid state drives, until recently, were much more expensive than their counterparts for storing lots of data.

Forensics experts would have an easier time retrieving erased data from such older, disk-based servers because those units are not as efficient in deleting material, said Hayes, assistant professor and director of cybersecurity at Pace University’s School of Computer Science and Information Systems in New York.

“A hard disk drive is very difficult to manipulate,” he said. “Once you get your hands on a hard drive, there’s a lot you can recover.”

Even after files are marked for deletion on a disk, Hayes said, their contents remain on the drive and can be retrieved. Even if the full file is gone, fragments can be pulled off the drive and sometimes a complete email file can be found inside other files marked for deletion.

Washington Times: "FBI to start efforts to recover data from Clinton’s email server"

. . . Cybersecurity experts say the FBI will begin first by trying to recover any information from the server. If emails are retrievable from the server, then investigators would likely start piecing together where the emails came from, who they were sent to and to what degree the information they contained was classified.

“Actually having the device enables the investigators to do a heck of a lot in terms of what the person was doing with that server, and also what was on that server and bringing back deleted files,” said Darren Hayes, a cybersecurity professor at Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems.

Downtown Express: "Survey shows some satisfaction, but also garbage problems"

Downtown Express: "Survey shows some satisfaction, but also garbage problems"

A yearlong survey conducted to figure out community needs in Lower Manhattan yielded some surprises, including that optimism resides in Battery Park City.

When asked what they would change about their neighborhood, the number one response was “not one thing: it’s nice here!”

“From Battery City Park, we heard people saying that it’s wonderful here, no changes at all, we love it the way it is,” said Michael Levine, Community Board 1’s planning consultant, in a phone interview.

The Seaport/Civic Center was the only other area to garner the same response, but it was only two percent there, compared to almost 11 in Battery Park City.

Levine, who also teaches urban planning at Pace University, enlisted his students to conduct the survey. One class with 30 students would tackle one of C.B. 1’s four neighborhoods — Battery Park City, Tribeca, Seaport/Civic Center and the Financial District. Each student was required to do ten surveys, Levine said.

The Hill's Congress Blog: "High cost of Dodd-Frank is harming US banks and citizens"

The Hill's Congress Blog: "High cost of Dodd-Frank is harming US banks and citizens"

. . . The costs and uncertainty of expanded federal regulation are inhibiting innovation and stultifying capital expenditures and corporate growth, writes John Alan James, a professor at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business and chairman emeritus of its Center for Global Governance, Reporting and Regulation. If the U.S. economy is to recover, then growth must be higher than the current anemic gross domestic product growth rate. We must create a new climate for innovation and investment with a careful and objective analysis of the impact of regulation, and discuss modifications of rules that have a negative impact on economic growth. It is time for statesmanship, not rancor and polarization.

. . . Darren Hayes, a cybersecurity professor at Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems, said it’s very common “in this day and age” for a company working with a client to back up their materials.

Nonetheless, it’s unclear what investigators might find on the server.

Hayes said what might be found will be determined by how the deletions were done.

“It depends on what kind of tools they used,” Hayes said.

Network World: "Don’t look for Google to make big, quick changes after Alphabet pronouncement"

Network World: "Don’t look for Google to make big, quick changes after Alphabet pronouncement"

. . . Realistically, the consensus is that there aren’t going to be any earth-shaking consequences of the Alphabet reorganization in the immediate future, whatever the eventual implications are. Still, the shift puts Google/Alphabet in an excellent position to diversify, according to Larry Chiagouris, a professor of marketing at Pace University’s Lublin School of Business.

This multi-brand strategy, Chiagouris said, is in line with recognized Madison Avenue strategy, a fact already being reflected in Wall Street’s positive reaction to the announcement as the company’s stock jumped by 6% in after-hours trading on Monday, post-announcement. At the flagship, however, little seems likely to change right away under new CEO Sundar Pichai.
