U.S. News & World Report: "A Big iPhone Slump Bites Into Apple (AAPL)"

U.S. News & World Report: "A Big iPhone Slump Bites Into Apple (AAPL)"

. . . "There's a different feel about Apple since the loss of Steve Jobs," says Darren Hayes, an assistant professor and director of cybersecurity at Pace University's Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems in New York. "It has been many years since the company has released a product that has the public mesmerized. We've come to expect technology companies to surprise us and Apple has only surprised us with disappointing earnings growth."

Journal News: "Dougherty: There is some explaining to do at Somers"

Journal News: "Dougherty: There is some explaining to do at Somers"

Are the best interests of the student athletes being served at Somers, or are the personal interests of an influential few taking precedence?

Cue the crickets.

It’s almost impossible to get both sides of the story when a popular high school coach is removed from the sideline. Administrators instinctively run for the cover of a popular district policy that prohibits any discussion of personnel issues.

There is no transparency, no accountability.

Somers athletic director Roman Catalino met with Tuskers girls basketball coach Kristi Dini on Tuesday and informed the former Boston University standout that she would not be coming back next fall to build upon the best season in program history.

Why?

“I can’t comment on that,” Catalino said.

Parents of players in the program are currently organizing behind the scenes, hoping to get the answer.

Good luck.

“There isn’t a law that prohibits school officials from commenting, but there also isn’t a law that requires them to comment,” said Emily Waldman a professor at Pace University School of Law, who specializes in employment and educational law. “I think most school districts think it’s safer not to say anything in a personnel matter. There’s more of a legal incentive not to say anything. If you don’t say anything, then you can’t be held liable.”

New York Daily News: "Trump stands by ‘woman card’ jab, but denies Hillary Clinton comments were sexist"

04/27/2016

New York Daily News: "Trump stands by ‘woman card’ jab, but denies Hillary Clinton comments were sexist"

. . . Trump's gender-centered attack line was widely mocked Wednesday with many political experts deeming the mogul's decision to go after Clinton, on account of her being a woman, as a foolish ploy that will further hurt his already dismal standing among female voters.

"About 70% of women have an unfavorable view of Trump, according to an April 2016 Gallup poll," Jessica Lavariega-Monforti, Chair of Political Science Department at Pace University in New York, told the Daily News. "His commentary about playing 'the woman card' will not play well with female voters, particularly those who continue to face pay inequities and gender discrimination."

In addition to the Gallup poll cited by Lavariega-Monforti, a USA Today-Suffolk University poll released earlier this week showed that 66% of likely female voters had an unfavorable view of Trump, compared with 48% who had an unfavorable view of Clinton.

Journal News: "View: Improve Obamacare, don't risk replacing it"

Nurses know what health care people need, the authors write, and can't afford to lose

Many Americans now have access to health care for the first time, write Marie Truglio-Londrigan and Sandra B. Lewenson, professors at Pace University’s College of Health Professions and co-authors of the book, “Practicing Primary Health Care in Nursing: Caring for Populations.” For example, millennials can remain on their parents’ health plans until they are 26, and those with pre-existing conditions can purchase new plans. When we hear presidential candidates say that they will do away with the Affordable Care Act, either removing it entirely or replacing it, we must ask:  what would the consequences be  for the American people?  Arguments about whether the Affordable Care Act is doing too much or too little need to be examined by many, particularly those on the front lines — the nursing profession.

Nurses make up the largest group of health care providers in the nation and the most trusted profession; we must have a voice in this discussion. We have the skill set to meaningfully address what needs to be done and how to make services more accessible, available, affordable, and acceptable to every American.

We know from our experience as public health nurses that the Affordable Care Act is not perfect.  But to deconstruct it in the hopes of building something better would be a mistake. If our goal is a healthy society and health for all Americans, then let’s build on what we have. We need our presidential candidates and the public to join nurses in working toward solutions in ways that do not place the American people at risk.

FoxNews.com: "Cruz and Kasich join forces against Trump -- but will it work?"

04/25/2016

FoxNews.com: "Cruz and Kasich join forces against Trump -- but will it work?"

. . . The first test of the strategy will be in Indiana on May 3. The latest Fox News poll shows Trump with a comfortable eight-point lead over Cruz in Indiana. Trump holds 41 percent of voters, while Cruz has 33 percent, with Kasich trailing with 16 percent.

On paper, that math appears to work for Cruz and Kasich’s strategy. If just more than half of Kasich’s voters moves to Cruz, and very few move to Trump, then the Texas senator will win the state, and a greater share of the 57 delegates available.

Oregon has 28 delegates up for grabs, while New Mexico has 24. Therefore, if the strategy works in the three states, it would make Trump's prospect of hitting 1,237 extremely narrow.

However, David A. Caputo, Professor of Political Science in New York’s Pace University, told FoxNews.com that the assumption that some of that vote won’t leak to Trump is flawed.

“The assumption is that Indiana voters are largely conservative, therefore when Kasich is out, voters will go to Cruz. I would argue, however, that some of that vote goes to Trump and so that strategy going forward may not work,” Caputo said.

As a wider strategy, Caputo says the transferability of votes that the two campaigns are assuming exists may not be there after all, and that it could even have unintended consequences.

“I think it could have a boomerang effect. If I’m a Kasich supporter and told to vote for Cruz, I may just think ‘wait a minute I’m for the candidate but I don’t like being told what to do’ and they might go and vote for Trump instead,” Caputo said.

Westchester County Business Journal: "Tax policy in flux affects Main Street"

. . . Treasury was right to curtail inversions, said Philip G. Cohen, a retired vice president of tax at Unilever United States, and an associate professor of taxation at Pace University Lubin School of Business. Congress has failed to act, he said, and the government had to send a message to stop an abusive tax avoidance practice.

He said the high corporate tax not only hurts U.S. companies with global operations, it burdens smaller U.S. companies that don’t have foreign operations to use for tax avoidance techniques.

The proposed rule that would treat a company’s foreign debt as equity goes too far, he said. But putting an end to taxation of foreign earnings of American corporations, as some reformers have advocated, would encourage companies to move jobs and investments outside of the U.S.

“If Singapore decides to offer a tax holiday,” Cohen asked, “why would you put up an R&D facility in Tarrytown?”

“I want to encourage investments in the U.S. I want to make the U.S. business friendly, while at the same time curtailing abuses.”

The Treasury rules have been characterized as stopgap measures to slow down the pace of inversions. There is widespread agreement that comprehensive tax reform is needed.

Cohen said the tax base should be broadened and the statutory rates lowered. But he has written elsewhere that there is little appetite in the current Congress to change a tax system that opens the campaign donation spigot. Maybe next year, if a Democrat is elected president and Democrats control the Senate, a reform bill can be negotiated with a Republican House.
