New York Times: "New Rules Make Inversions Less Lucrative, Experts Say"

. . . “One of the benefits of inversions is the ability to access these foreign earnings,” said Philip G. Cohen, a former general tax counsel for Unilever United States and a professor at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business. “If you thwart that, it will dissuade some companies from inverting.”

NPR's All Things Considered: "Big Sponsors May Find It Hard To Break Up With The NFL"

NPR's All Things Considered: "Big Sponsors May Find It Hard To Break Up With The NFL"

. . . it's likely there's a lot more than that going on behind the scenes, says Larry Chiagouris, professor of marketing at Pace University in New York.

"There are phone calls being made," Chiagouris says, "meetings being held, in which people are saying, flat-out, in much more direct and colorful language, 'Get your act together. We don't want our brand associated with a problem.' "

Chiagouris, who spent 25 years in the marketing business, says these are calls the NFL needs to listen to.

"Basically, the NFL survives mostly — thrives — on the sponsorships and advertising, much more than, say, ticket sales or other such things," he says. "Without sponsors, there's no NFL."

Recorded Future blog: "How Pace University is Building the Next Generation of Cyber Security Analysts"

Cyber threat intelligence is a young area of security. Relatively few universities offer formalized instruction to prepare analysts for this specific problem set, and these curriculums are rapidly evolving. Yet, the demand for analysts with these skills is growing and organizations are facing serious hiring and retention challenges. Therefore, it’s critical for those starting in or transitioning into this career to know how and where to get the right foundation and skill sets. Professor Darren Hayes’ post below very nicely summarizes the key skills a good analyst must have or develop.

E-Commerce Times: "Will the Beats Go On?"

E-Commerce Times: "Will the Beats Go On?"

. . . "It would seem extraordinarily strange that Apple would abandon the Beats Music brand after paying so much money for the Beats brand," said Darren Hayes, a professor at Pace University's Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems.

"What would make sense for Apple is to diversify its music offerings by creating new channels and not simply rely on iTunes," he told the E-Commerce Times.

"Currently, Spotify, Pandora, Google Music and Amazon Prime appear to be leading the charge with the way that consumers download and listen to music, and Apple has a different model of delivery," Hayes pointed out.

Consumers have access to iTunes Radio, but there is very little buzz about that service, he noted.

If Beats Music is abandoned, then there will be many disgruntled fans, Hayes predicted. "People become very attached to the look and feel of mobile apps, and it's not all about the choice of music."

MarketWatch: "Opinion: How tax-inversion rules may stall mergers"

MarketWatch: "Opinion: How tax-inversion rules may stall mergers"

. . . Philip Cohen, a professor of tax policy at Pace University and former tax counsel for Unilever PLC’s U.S. division, said the Treasury Department is limited in its ability to truly curb inversions.

“The best way of addressing the problem of inversions is for Congress to pass anti-inversion legislation,” Cohen wrote in an analysis Tuesday. “Unfortunately, that does not appear likely to occur in the short term.”

New York Times: "Opera Singers Try a More Intimate Genre"

09/23/2014

New York Times: "The Voce Series, With French Songs, at the Schimmel Center"

There are certain styles that are difficult to convey well: Most competent pianists, for example, can play Chopin decently, but it takes a more particular gift to win over an audience with Bach or Boulez. On the vocal front, the intimate, enigmatic French art song — a genre (like chamber music) that is often best suited to salon-style formats — can be challenging to render convincingly.

Singers who are charismatic and natural on the opera stage often seem ill at ease in recital formats, although the soprano Julia Bullock and the excellent tenor Paul Appleby both appeared poised on Sunday afternoon at the Schimmel Center at Pace University. But it was only at the end of the first half of the program that the singing really caught fire. The event, part of the recently inaugurated Voce: Rising Opera Stars in Recital series, was initially to have featured the tenor Joseph Kaiser, who withdrew a few days before the performance.

U.S. News: "Online Options Expanding in Higher Education Landscape"

U.S. News: "Online Options Expanding in Higher Education Landscape"

Christine Shakespeare, assistant vice president of continuing and professional education at Pace University, and her colleagues frequently describe the interrupted educational paths of their adult student population like this: “Life gets in the way.” By enrolling in online courses, however, students are able to reintegrate higher education into their lives without their studies getting in the way of their work or family commitments.

“We are dealing with an adult audience; many have started and stopped,” she says.

Students who graduate from iPace, the online version of the undergraduate program at Pace University in New York, receive the same diploma as the traditional students. “Part of the myth is that online is easier,” Shakespeare says. In actuality, students need to be self-disciplined and dedicate the same amount of time and effort as if they were participating in person, even if the majority of iPace students are part time, she notes.

CNBC: "NFL sponsor wrath: Can they change the league?"

CNBC: "NFL sponsor wrath: Can they change the league?"

. . . "Even as prestigious as the NFL brand is, there are other ways for companies to spend their money," said Larry Chiagouris, a professor of marketing at Pace University.

Chiagouris added that the discontent expressed by sponsors might not hit the NFL's revenue right away but further down the line when contract renewals and extensions come up.

He said the companies would likely want to verify that the NFL is making changes to address player conduct—and if nothing is changed, the deals might go away or be cut back substantially.

TheStreet: "Why Apple Pay Is So Important to Apple's Future"

. . . "Apple has timed this announcement perfectly to coincide with the pent-up demand for new Apple products, and the excitement over wearables (like watches) that the Android and Samsung products have not yet satisfied," said Jonathan Hill, associate dean of Pace University's Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems.
