ESPN: "J.J. Watt is football's real-life action hero"

. . . "Richard Sherman's attraction was associated with the success of his team," said Larry Chiagouris, a professor at Pace University's Lubin School of Business in New York. "Without the success of his team you would not even be asking me a question about Richard Sherman. If his team had not won the Super Bowl, you would not even ask me a question about him. On the other hand, J.J. Watt's team has never won the Super Bowl. J.J. Watt's team has never even been in the Super Bowl. But we're still talking about J.J. Watt.

"Can you imagine what will happen if his team wins?"

Financial Times: "Poetry, Danced, Erasing Borders, Pace University, New York — review"

If not for Hinduism’s embrace of the erotic, there would be no Indian classical dance, whose central subject has always been love in all its shades — between the gods and towards the gods. In its second summer smorgasbord the reliably excellent Indo-American Arts Council offered intriguing updates to this ancient commingling of religious devotion and romance.

E-Commerce Times: "Amazon's Underground Unshackles Freemium Android Apps"

. . . This latest move will help Amazon make up ground in the space, said Larry Chiagouris, professor of marketing at Pace University's Lubin School of Business.

"Amazon is on a collision course with Apple and its iTunes store and also with Google and its Google Play download site," he told the E-Commerce Times. "If it is going to compete effectively with Apple and Google, Amazon has to jump in and accelerate growth in apps that extend the Amazon universe."

PennLive Op-Ed: "Being a Special Olympics volunteer teaches lessons on sportsmanship, trying our best: Carolyn Phillips"

PennLive Op-Ed: "Being a Special Olympics volunteer teaches lessons on sportsmanship, trying our best: Carolyn Phillips"

By Carolyn Phillips, a junior at Pace University who is originally from the Mechanicsburg area.

"Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt" was pledged by athletes at the first Special Olympics World Games in 1968, and that same oath was taken 47 years later in Los Angeles last month. The only difference was that this time I was there to hear it. I volunteered at the Special Olympics World Games, the biggest sporting and humanitarian event in the world in 2015.

The week started July 25 with the opening ceremony at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum (where the 1932 and 1984 Olympic opening ceremonies were held). It was a night filled with motivational stories from athletes about the gifts Special Olympics has given them, songs written just for the Games, and the end to the transnational Torch Run, which started in Athens, Greece, and ended in Los Angeles. It was a beautiful moment. I was able to see the torchbearers run the Flame of Hope in New York City, and I saw the torchbearers light the cauldron to start the Games. It signified hope for the World Games and for all individuals with disabilities throughout the world.

Daily News: "Stocks rally, then plunge in last hour"

. . . "It's been crazy," said Robert Chersi, a professor of finance and economics at Pace University's Lubin School of Business and a former CFO of Fidelity Investments.

"We haven't had a change of more than 3% in any given day in months, and then suddenly there have been these big swings intraday and end of day," Chersi told the Daily News. "Is it all China-related? It's too short a period to know what's really driving it."
