amNewYork: "NYC college dorms: Study compares cost of campus living to surrounding neighborhoods"

There are a lot more reasons to choose a Manhattan college dorm room than just the cafeteria food.

A study released Thursday by StreetEasy found that students attending schools in Manhattan were saving a lot of cash by sticking to campus housing compared to their peers who attend outer borough schools.

British voters opted to cut ties with the European Union Thursday, a historic decision that caused turmoil in the markets and forced the resignation of its prime minister.

Prime Minister David Cameron announced plans to step down early Friday morning after leading the campaign to stay in the EU, saying the country would need “fresh leadership” for its transition. Meanwhile, the announcement sent the British pound plunging to its lowest level since 1985. The S&P 500 Index opened down 3 percent Friday in the U.S.

But what further impacts Britain’s decision, coined Brexit, could have in the United States and in New York are not yet clear, according to Larry Bridwell, professor of International Business and chair of the Undergraduate Management Program at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business in New York.

“This is a classic example of a big-picture story,” Bridwell said.

He noted the trouble on Wall Street in the U.S. and the declining pound as the immediate impacts on the global economy.

“But as far as the American economy as a whole, a lot of activity are exports, imports and that I don’t think is going to be affected that much,” he said.

Tribeca Trib: "How Many? New Study Counts the Stuff on Lower Manhattan Sidewalks"

Tribeca Trib: "How Many? New Study Counts the Stuff on Lower Manhattan Sidewalks"

No one knows Lower Manhattan sidewalks like Cammie Flippen. As the Urban Fellow for Community Board 1, Flippen recently oversaw what is sure to be one of the most comprehensive inventories of non-human objects that populate a city’s sidewalks.

Last fall she directed a team of Pace University urban planning students who examined, block by block, four Downtown neighborhoods: Tribeca, Battery Park City, the Seaport/Civic Center and the Financial District. They counted just about any type of permanent object that could be found on a sidewalk, from pay phones and planters to trash cans and tree pits. There were nearly 7,000 in all.

Westchester County Business Journal: "Pace appoints new computer science dean"

Westchester County Business Journal: "Pace appoints new computer science dean"

The new dean of Pace University’s computer science school says Westchester and Fairfield counties are poised to become a significant technology hub, and the college intends to be a part of that.

Pace named Jonathan H. Hill as dean of Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems, effective July 1, after a lengthy national search. He had been serving as interim dean since September and was previously the associate dean.

Hill said there has been a lot of talk about the loss of technology jobs as Fortune 500 companies have moved out of the region. But there is a counter-trend. Many technology jobs are unfilled here, and young professionals, for example, are moving out of Brooklyn to places like Tarrytown and Mount Kisco to work for technology companies.

Variety: "Mistrust on Madison Avenue: Why Can’t Marketers, Media Buyers Get Along?"

Variety: "Mistrust on Madison Avenue: Why Can’t Marketers, Media Buyers Get Along?"

. . . Advertising dollars fuel much of Hollywood’s engine, and if the report puts the media industry on edge, it’s because there may be less lucre to go around. Marketers and agencies could start to spend time and budgets on auditing activity, which could strangle the flow of advertising funds. “Auditing doesn’t come free,” notes Larry Chiagouris, a professor of marketing at Pace University in New York. “The agencies are going to have to increase their fees to cover the costs associated with putting in additional checks and balances, and everything is going to be more expensive.”

Fast Company: "Is There A Business Case To Be Made For Political Endorsements?"

06/20/2016

Fast Company: "Is There A Business Case To Be Made For Political Endorsements?"

. . . The question is: Why would a business make a move that could ultimately alienate customers in the first place? According to Larry Chiagouris, a professor of marketing at Pace University, the answer is that most businesses don’t. "Most of the time you do not see endorsements on a national level," he says. "No one wants to irritate potential customers."

Things change, however, when you bring it to a more local level. That is, if a business is in geography where the demographic leans one way, it likely won’t hurt business to show that you agree with those around you. For example, if you’re a small business in a very progressive area, says Chiagouris, "you can feel comfortable endorsing a liberal candidate."

E-Commerce Times: "Snapchat Rolls Out Ad-Friendlier Design"

E-Commerce Times: "Snapchat Rolls Out Ad-Friendlier Design"

. . . Snapchat moments "are very brief and focused on a communication that lasts for ... a matter of seconds," said Larry Chiagouris, professor of marketing at Pace University.

"Snapchat and media partners will need to train an entire generation to get news from the Snapchat ecosystem," he told The E-Commerce Times. "This is doable, but not in the near future, and could take years."

Until Snapchat moments can be proven to impact consumer behavior, Chiagouris said, "advertisers will not jump on board beyond a little experimentation."

. . . “Sanders is putting the party in a very delicate situation,” said David Caputo, president emeritus and a political science professor at Pace University in New York. “From the party’s standpoint, they would much rather have him gone,” but they also want to turn his millions of young supporters to Clinton in November.

WPIX: "Returning U.S. Coast Guard veteran says she couldn’t land job without college degree"

WPIX: "Returning U.S. Coast Guard veteran says she couldn’t land job without college degree"

Watch the video: http://pix11.com/2016/06/08/returning-u-s-coast-guard-veteran-says-she-couldnt-land-job-without-college-degree/

NEW YORK -- For many returning veterans, getting a college education is a priority. But paying for it isn’t always easy.

That’s why PIX11 has partnered with the Veterans Education Challenge (VEC). It’s an organization dedicated to sending U.S. military vets to college, and provides them with needed scholarships that the GI Bill does not cover.

VEC founders, Avis and Bruce Richards, started the “Veterans Education $1 Million Matching Challenge” to help fund higher education for returning veterans. Every dollar donated between Veterans Day 2015 and Veterans Day 2016 will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Richards up to one million dollars.

We share the story of U.S. Coast Guard Veteran, who is taking advantage of the educational opportunity given to her through the G.I. Bill.

29-year-old Juliet Cottodejesus enjoyed nine fulfilling and memorable years with the U.S. Coast Guard protecting New York Harbor.

“If the President, the U.N., the Super Bowl, anything that might have been a terrorist target, we would just do security zones around those areas. We also did search and rescue,” Cottodejesus explained.

Juliet said the best part of her service was getting to know the public and telling them about the Coast Guard.

She ended her service in 2014, and was ready to begin a new chapter in her life. But all of her years with the Coast Guard didn’t exactly open doors.

“I wanted to try something new, but I didn’t go to college, so nobody would hire me,” she said.

She is now a junior majoring in business management at Pace University in Manhattan. She credits her father, a former marine, with giving her advice that would make getting higher education possible.

“My father encouraged me to join the Coast Guard, so I could get the GI Bill,” Juliet said.
