Real Estate Weekly: "Students settle into downtown dorm designed as a home away from home"

Of the thousands of students who have flooded into Lower Manhattan in recent weeks, 700 can count themselves extremely lucky.

They are the Pace University collegians who have taken up residence at 33 Beekman Place, the new 165,000 s/f student residence designed by Gene Kaufman Architect for the Naftali Group.

The 34-story, 385-unit building offers two full floors — more than 3,000 s/f — of amenities. They include a 900 s/f student lounge, an 860 s/f fitness center with floor-to-ceiling windows, a screening room, a game room, and a library/study center (the building also has a cafeteria, a laundry room, and a large storage area for bicycles).

Fusion: "How do we get young people on board to eradicate extreme poverty in 15 years?"

. . . “Nursing students will intersect with people who live in poverty all the time and their potential to make a positive impact in their life course is significant,” said Angela Northrup, Assistant Professor at Pace’s Lienhard School of Nursing. “When they hear about the effect of poverty on health, often they’re very surprised. They don’t see that there’s a relationship.”

The Economist: "The model minority is losing patience"

The Economist: "The model minority is losing patience"

. . South Asians, though less numerous than East Asians, are more visible. Nikki Haley, governor of South Carolina, and Bobby Jindal, governor of Louisiana, both Indian-Americans, are the only Asian-American governors in the lower 48 (David Ige, a Japanese-American, is governor of Hawaii). The contrasting political traditions of India and China may also be a factor. “We come from the largest democracy in the world,” says Sayu Bhojwani, who runs the New American Leaders project, which helps train immigrants to flourish in politics. “We’re prepared for it in the way that East Asians are not.”

In China, by contrast, “We went through the cultural revolution,” says Chunyan Li, a former employee of the Chinese finance ministry, now a professor of accountancy at Pace University in New York. “There’s a lack of trust in politics.”

The agreement is being viewed with a sort of pessimistic hope in the cybersecurity community.

“My opinion is, I’ll believe it when I see it,” said Darren Hayes, director of cybersecurity and an assistant professor at Pace University, in a phone interview.
