International Business Times: "Russian Ships And Troops In The Crimea Threaten To Split An Unstable Ukraine In Two"

. . . “No way would Russia agree to what is going on right now, because they will not accept that Ukraine is a separate nation," said Andriy Danylenko, a New York-based Ukrainian professor at Pace University. "They still think in terms of the Soviet Union and Russian Empire, so they cannot accept this revolution, so they will be doing everything possible, legally or otherwise, to ensure that the protesters are not successful in stopping the imperial culture that exists in the Ukraine.”

Reuters: "UAW chief says VW vote tainted by outside 'threats'"

. . . Challenges to union election results typically focus on allegations of improper conduct by management, and labor experts see the UAW's focus on outsiders as complicating their case.

"I think it is flimsy," said John James, executive director of the Center for Global Governance, Reporting and Regulation at Pace University in New York. Comments by Corker were protected by both free speech safeguards and Congressional immunity, he noted.

China Daily USA: "Reclaiming a heritage lost, stolen or sold"

China Daily USA: "Reclaiming a heritage lost, stolen or sold"

. . . UNESCO estimates that at least 17 million Chinese cultural relics are scattered all over the world, far more than are housed in China's own museums.

Joseph Tse-Hei Lee, a professor of history at Pace University who specializes in cultural-heritage management, said that of those 17 million, 1 million are art objects now in 200 different museums in 47 countries, not to mention private collections.

"So basically we're talking about huge numbers of Chinese art," Lee said, adding that when you look closely at the history of some of these items, most of them were taken from China since the late 19th century, but it's not that simple. "If we talk about 'stolen' Chinese art, one of the problems is the definition of 'stolen'."

"Most of the time we tend to focus on those arts taken by foreign invaders in the late 19th, like just after the Boxer Rebellion," Lee said. "But after the collapse of the Qing Dynasty (in 1911), we had huge numbers of Chinese arts being taken away from the old Imperial Palace by officials, and they were put on the market in the 1910s and 1920s."

Lee said it was also known that a huge amount of art was taken by the Red Guard during China's "cultural revolution" (1966-76) as well, "and those items are in the open market and also on the black market, either in China or in Hong Kong".

As a good example, Lee mentioned a Shanghai historian who told him that most of the collection in the municipal museum in Shanghai came from three major local collector families and most of the items had been confiscated by the state after 1949.

Los Angeles Times: "Outsiders, false promises take blame in UAW's Volkswagen defeat"

Los Angeles Times: "Outsiders, false promises take blame in UAW's Volkswagen defeat"

. . . John James, a longtime management consultant for German companies and now a professor at Pace University in New York, said a German-style works council would have brought a sense of cooperation and transparency to the Chattanooga plant.

“The workers would regularly hear, ‘We want to know what you think. We want to know how you feel. We want you to feel part of the process,’” James said in an interview Saturday.

He said that at German companies an office as small as 11 employees elects a three-person works council.

“The manager at that sales office can’t even change from Pepsi to Coke in the soda machine without approval of the three people on the works council,” James said.
