WCBS 880: "New York City Puts Brakes On Green Taxi Expansion Plan"

. . . Former TLC Commissioner David Yassky, now Pace University Law School Dean, said the green cabs merit an expansion.

“It’s serving a big part of New York City that needs the service,” Yassky told WCBS 880′s Rich Lamb. “The borough taxis have brought much-needed service to the 80 percent of New York City that never had taxi service, we need more on the road.”

Westchester County Business Journal: "Utilities executive leads Pace Energy and Climate Center"

05/14/2014

Westchester County Business Journal: "Utilities executive leads Pace Energy and Climate Center"

Karl R. Rábago, an attorney and former electric utilities executive and federal Department of Energy official, has begun work this month as the new executive director of the Pace Energy and Climate Center, the interdisciplinary law and policy think tank at the Pace University School of Law in White Plains.

Pace officials said Rabago arrives at a pivotal moment as Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration plans to change the way electric and gas utilities conduct business in the state. State officials will restructure the way utilities and energy companies sell electricity and interact with their customers. Efforts have begun to develop new policies to accelerate the deployment of new clean energy generation technologies, give customers more control of their energy use and reduce the emissions causing climate change.

“Karl Rábago brings a wealth of industry experience, academic credentials and government experience to the center,” said Richard L. Ottinger, dean emeritus of Pace Law School and founder of the Pace Energy and Climate Center, in a press release. “I am delighted he will be leading our team of experts as New York state engages in this exciting utility reform effort.”

New York Times: "U.S. Policy Toward Egypt"

New York Times: "U.S. Policy Toward Egypt"

". . . by failing to take a strong stand against the military coup ousting an unpopular but freely democratically elected president from the Muslim Brotherhood, the Obama administration violated fundamental American values respecting the rule of law and the peaceful electoral process," writes Tom McDonnell, a professor at Pace University School of Law, in a letter to the editor of the New York Times.

"By also seeming to ratify the Egyptian military’s repression of peaceful protesters and political opponents, the administration makes more likely revenge attacks against the “far enemy” — the United States — by Islamic extremists outraged by the Egyptian military’s onslaught against the Muslim Brotherhood."

Journal News: "Test teachers, but first train them"

"The new teacher performance assessment in New York state — the edTPA — has been built by the profession for the profession," writes Christine D. Clayton, associate professor in Adolescent Education and department chair of the Pace University School of Education. "The tasks in the edTPA are ones broadly valued by teacher educators who have been involved in its development. Unfortunately, the current implementation of the edTPA in New York state is not serving the teaching profession as it should."
