The Atlantic: "How Actors Create Emotions: A Problematic Psychology"

The Atlantic: "How Actors Create Emotions: A Problematic Psychology"

. . . In truth, cognitive scientists and psychologists have been reluctant to embrace acting as a serious subject of study. But researchers like Thalia Goldstein, an assistant professor of psychology at Pace University, have recently started to investigate the links between the two fields with the idea that both disciplines can be enriched by a study of their commonalities. In a joint paper from Goldstein and Yale professor Paul Bloom, “The mind on stage: why cognitive scientists should study acting,” Goldstein argues that psychologists can look to how actors create emotions in order to understand human nature in a new way.

“I think that at their cores, psychology, cognitive science, and theater are all trying to do the same thing, which is understand why people do the things they do, our range of behavior, and where it comes from,” Goldstein says. “It’s just two different ways of looking at the same question.”

Crain's New York Business: "Wicked returns for his investors -- Broadway producer David Stone and the art of 1,000% paybacks."

. . . The show, based on Gregory Maguire's novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, acts as a prologue and epilogue to The Wizard of Oz. It details the evolution of Elphaba, the once-bullied green girl who finds strength, conviction and love even though people perceive her as wicked.

"It's the Ugly Duckling story set on its head, and we can all relate to that," said Jorge Cacheiro, chair of the performing-arts program at Pace University.

Investor's Business Daily: "Can Snapchat Security Issues, Like Photos, Disappear?"

. . . "Before the scandals, I thought the valuation was way too high," says marketing professor Larry Chiagouris of Pace University in New York. "Now there's no doubt in my mind it was too high.

"There are other issues besides privacy, not the least of which is the business model. How do they end up providing some value-added service to advertisers?"

E-Commerce Times: "Office for iPad May Be Waiting in Wings"

. . . "The people who are in a position to pay will happily pay because it means their iPads have become that much more efficient," said Jonathan H. Hill, an associate dean at the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems at Pace University.

"Those of us who use iPads during the course of a business day -- our machines just got a whole lot more valuable for us," he told the E-Commerce Times.

MLive Media Group (Michigan): "Is Toyota's $1.2 billion settlement a foreshadowing for GM ignition switch recall?"

MLive Media Group (Michigan): "Is Toyota's $1.2 billion settlement a foreshadowing for GM ignition switch recall?"

. . . John Alan James, executive director of the Center for Global Governance, Reporting and Regulation at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business in New York City, said he feels the “new” GM will somehow be punished for the “old” GM’s missteps.

“These failures in corporate governance carry major financial risks and even more important, reputational risks which damage the corporate image, possibly for years to come,” said James, who has advised clients including 50 of the U.S. Fortune 100 major multinational corporations and foreign companies.

James pointed out that the U.S. Justice Department could continue to use the section of the law called “wire fraud,” as it did with Toyota, to fine automakers that mislead the public or regulators.

E-Commerce Times: "Apple Flirts With Lower-End Mobile Market"

With Apple's entry into the lower-cost market, the company "is reaching more consumers but demising the upside potential for any one particular model," Larry Chiagouris, professor of marketing at Pace University, told the E-Commerce Times.

"The only way to make money," he said, "is to hope it can migrate consumers to higher-end models for their next purchase."

Newsweek: "Why Ukraine Hasn’t Sparked a Big Cyberwar, So Far"

. . . “I think ultimately if this does turn into cyberwarfare, there could be attacks on critical infrastructure,” says Darren Hayes, a professor at Pace University and an expert in digital forensics and cybersecurity. “If you think about someone hacking into the subway system, that’s a pretty serious blow.”

Compliance Week: "Regulators Push for More Transparency on Independent Valuation Services"

Compliance Week: "Regulators Push for More Transparency on Independent Valuation Services"

. . . Leslie Seidman, former chairman of the Financial Accounting Standards Board now executive director of the Center for Excellence in Financial Reporting at Pace University, says the root of the problem is education, not just for valuation specialists but for auditors as well. “There's no question there's a significant intersection between accounting and valuation, but valuation is not used only for financial reporting purposes,” she says. “One of the most common concerns I heard expressed was that there isn't enough emphasis on the education of accountants in valuation, so start there in training those who are responsible for financial reporting in the United States.”

Crain's New York Business: "Biz-school courses focus on giving back"

. . . Today's M.B.A.s are well aware that big corporations now expect executives to be conversant in matters related to a company's broader impact, such as its carbon footprint and practices in vetting its supply chain for human-rights violations—and expect to have access to courses that help them learn this area of business. "This is coming from the bottom up," said Bruce Bachenheimer, director of the Entrepreneurship Lab at Pace University.

New York Times: "How to Profit Modestly by Moving to a Nonprofit"

New York Times: "How to Profit Modestly by Moving to a Nonprofit"

. . . In November, Pace University in New York started the Encore Transition Program, aimed at helping executives and professionals explore changeovers from midlife careers to nonprofit and public service organizations. (Pace's program, like the one at the University of Connecticut, has no ties to Encore.org.) The tuition is $1,250, and classes are limited to about a dozen students.

The five-session program provides an overview of New York's nonprofit and public service industries. Leaders in the arts, education, health care, social services and government meet with the group to share stories and allow students to make connections to tap for possible job openings or informational interviews.

''This is not a job placement program, but an exploration of opportunities,'' said Joan K. Tucker, the program's director.

''What I learned is that when you think that you might be at the end of one career, that's not necessarily so,'' said Patricia Carroll, who enrolled in the inaugural course.

For the last 20 years, Ms. Carroll, 56, a Rutherford, N.J., nurse has held executive-level positions in health care administration. But, she says, she is ready to explore all alternatives. So she signed up for the Pace program.

''The course helped me explore what my 'next step' might be,'' she said. ''Hearing from people working in the nonprofit sector who have already made the transition showed me that I'm not too old to have five-, 10-, 15-year goals just like my children in their 20s do.''

Students are also encouraged to check out complementary programs at the university. For instance, Pace offers a Master of Public Administration with a track for nonprofit management, as well as certificate courses on topics like grant writing.
