E-Commerce Times: "Facebook Trains Sights on Clickbaiters"

. . . Clickbaiting may be irritating to readers, but perhaps the real driver behind Facebook's actions is the potential loss of advertising dollars.

The practice is "a large nuisance for online marketers as it numbs consumers and results in lower click-through rates across the board," Larry Chiagouris, a professor of marketing at Pace University, told the E-Commerce Times. "Any decline in click-through rates has the potential to negatively impact Facebook revenue."

CFO Magazine: "Aversion to Inversions"

CFO Magazine: "Aversion to Inversions"

. . . In the face of inaction on comprehensive reform, and fearing that the Obama administration might crack down on inversions, corporations may be rushing to complete them as a form of “‘self-help’ territorial taxation,” according to Philip Cohen, a tax professor at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business. “Companies are witnessing other companies engaging in transactions that get around [Section 7874 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986], often by merging with a smaller foreign target, and asking, ‘Why not consider it, given the upside?’” he says.

WCBS-TV: "President Obama Plays Golf After Making Somber Statement On Beheaded American Journalist James Foley"

. . . At Pace University, Political Scientist Christopher Malone said that perception is reality for politicians.

“Something like this sort of reinforces the sense that maybe he is a little aloof, maybe he is a little isolated. I think that sort of narrative really is starting to take a toll six years into his presidency,” Malone said.

Chief Learning Officer: "Shrinking the Business School Skill Gap"

. . . At Pace University’s Lubin School of Business, Dean Neil Braun seeks to meet the need for experience by requiring each graduate to complete an internship and hold a campus leadership role, run a student business, complete a second internship or participate in some other hands-on application of skills before he or she can receive a diploma.

Law360: "Lawsky Bares Teeth With Latest Standard Chartered Penalty"

Law360: "Lawsky Bares Teeth With Latest Standard Chartered Penalty"

. . . Lawsky showed he was willing to take a tough line against Standard Chartered, but he could have lashed out with an even harsher penalty, said John Alan James, a professor at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business.

Standard Chartered is among the largest handlers of dollar-clearing transactions in New York, and Lawsky could have rescinded the bank’s license to conduct business in the state if the violations of the original settlement proved sufficiently severe, he said.

But the seriousness of that move may have caused Lawsky to hold at least some of his powder, James said.

“[New York State] will be reluctant to go to this extreme because of the keystone role [Standard Chartered] plays in the [foreign exchange] markets,” he said. “No one in the financial regulatory oversight community would want to deal with the huge mess that a [Standard Chartered] demise would incur.”

E-Commerce Times: "Twitter Experiment Elicits Howls of Disapproval"

E-Commerce Times: "Twitter Experiment Elicits Howls of Disapproval"

. . . For many users, the existing policy already creates a fire hose of information on their Timelines. Now Twitter is proposing to turn that fire hose into a water cannon -- a change those members find very vexing.

"Why do they find this process annoying?" asked Larry Chiagouris, a marketing professor at Pace University. "Because they view their Timeline as almost sacred."

"The Timeline is the way they keep up with people they wish to follow, and they do not want redundant or irrelevant material appearing in their Timeline," he told the E-Commerce Times. "Such material can be distracting and viewed as a waste of time by some of the people on Twitter."

New Yorker: "What Makes a Family of Artists"

New Yorker: "What Makes a Family of Artists"

. . . As Baptiste Barbot, the director of the Individual Differences in Development Lab at Pace University and a researcher at Yale’s Child Study Center, points out, Francis Galton’s view held sway well into the twentieth century. “For a very long time, creativity was perceived as genius,” Barbot said. “It was a view that some people are creative, and some aren’t. It’s a gift.”

As the science has evolved, however, it’s become clear that that view is far too simplistic, not only because most nature-nurture debates are now seen as moot (the conclusion, nearly always, is that both play a role) but because we no longer perceive creative ability as some monolithic entity. “We now consider creativity as a general ability,” Barbot said. “Everyone is creative. We’re just creative to a different degree.” After a decade of research, Barbot has discovered that, if we are to understand the hereditary and environmental nature of creativity, we need to think of creativity as a constellation of factors that come together in the right way, at the right moment—“maybe a bit of intelligence, some associative thinking, some divergent thinking, and then some personality traits, like the tendency to take risks, your motivation, and your specific interests.” he said. “These factors are partly genetically based, and, of course, partly environmental.”

How, then, do you even begin to study the links? Last year, he attempted to answer that question by reviewing the literature on genetics and creativity. When he examined all the studies that had looked at the hereditary nature of creative thought, he found that the most successful work—the work that had been replicated over time—didn’t set out to study creative ability as such. Instead, confirming Barbot’s thinking, it looked at skills that we know to be associated with creativity, breaking the process down into its component parts. Rather than a trait, Barbot concluded, creativity was a “synergistic interaction among a cluster of more fundamental characteristics.”

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: "With 'subscription box' retailers, Christmas now comes once a month"

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: "With 'subscription box' retailers, Christmas now comes once a month"

. . .  For retailers, meanwhile, the business model offers the tantalizing lure of a steady revenue stream. To cancel, customers must take action, and many put that off.

"Once you've signed up, if the price points are kept relatively modest and low, inertia is such that there are people who will take months before they finally get around to canceling," said Larry Chiagouris, a marketing professor at Pace University in New York City.
