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.

Breitbart News: "Fraud Alert: August is the Prime Month for Debit Card Skimmer Thieves"

. . . The report, written by Pace University professor Darren Hayes for the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, warns that the United States is the prime location for thieves to skim cards because American credit and debit cards are not “EMV-compliant” by containing an embedded global chip.

“The problem for the U.S. as well is that more than half of ATMs are independently owned and they are not affiliated with a bank,” said Hayes. “It’s more difficult to have a bank policy that’s going to protect the majority of ATMs because that’s not the case in the U.S.”

. . . While the decision to ban and quarantine some communities is a sign of maturity and a step in the right direction for the growing site, the company should take caution, said Larry Chiagouris, a professor of marketing at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business.

“You don’t want an organization whose value proposition is based on freedom of expression to be too quick at cutting off speech — that would be too dangerous,” he said.

Agence France Presse: "Trump gambles on the business of politics"

Agence France Presse: "Trump gambles on the business of politics"

. . . "Donald Trump is in the business of polishing the Trump brand," says Larry Chiagouris, professor of marketing at Pace University in New York. "He likely knows he's not going to be president."

In an article headlined "Donald Trump's brazen genius," The Economist suggested the mogul had his eye on political leverage "worth a fortune" in the red-tape of real estate.

If he can wield enough influence and gather enough steam, Chiagouris believes he could cut the mother of all deals if he can anoint the successful White House nominee.

"He's going to stay in it until the very end and, when it's clear there are a couple of contenders and his support could swing it one way or the other," he told AFP.

Kiplinger's Personal Finance: "Guide to Protecting Yourself from Identity Theft"

Kiplinger's Personal Finance: "Guide to Protecting Yourself from Identity Theft"

. . . If laws more broadly restricted the collection and sharing of personal information—and imposed greater penalties on entities that lose such data—consumers’ personal information would be less vulnerable, and organizations might be more motivated to improve security, says Darren Hayes, director of cybersecurity and assistant professor at Pace University. Sometimes victims are compensated through lawsuits. Target has agreed to pay a $10 million settlement to those who can provide evidence that they were affected by the 2013 breach of its customers' credit and debit card numbers and other information. Two federal employees unions have filed lawsuits against the OPM. One claims that the OPM violated employees' constitutional right to privacy. The other accuses the OPM of breaking a federal law when the agency failed to fix cybersecurity weaknesses, despite warnings from the Office of Inspector General.
