Computerworld: "Apple's P2P mobile payment service would 'create a shockwave' in the industry"

Computerworld: "Apple's P2P mobile payment service would 'create a shockwave' in the industry"

. . . An Apple P2P mobile payment service "could be a viable model in other countries," said Darren Hayes, an assistant professor and director of cybersecurity at Pace University.

"P2P payments have been around for many years in certain countries where credit cards aren't trusted," Hayes said. Also, PayPal isn't available in every country, which could give Apple a potential advantage.

Apple's iPhones are highly secure and users are likely to trust them for P2P as they have for Android Pay, Hayes said.

Hayes said he is often called as an expert witness in courtrooms where he provides smartphone forensics testimony, after working with law enforcement agencies to break down confiscated smartphones to find critical data needed for investigations. He said iPhones are the most difficult smartphones to break into.

Given Apple's high level of security with the iPhone and Apple Pay, it would likely "engender trust for people who are looking for alternatives to pay, as well as for using something other than a credit card," Hayes said. "It's just a logical step for Apple to move to P2P."

New York Observer: "The Rise of Low Residency Programs"

New York Observer: "The Rise of Low Residency Programs"

. . . Low-residency programs tend to attract different students from residential ones. John Valentini, for instance, who is about halfway through Pace’s low-residency MBA program, works full-time at Altfest Personal Wealth Management in Manhattan (which is funding his tuition). He grabs time before and after his job to complete coursework. “I put in good hours in the office, come early and stay late, and I felt this was the right fit for me,” he said. He also likes the fact that most “classmates” are not newly-minted grads, but people with real-world experience, which they’re eager to share.

The cohort meets in person every 10 or 11 weeks, Mr. Valentini explained, but students connect informally much more often. For one module on operations management, he said, most of his cohort—except a student based in the Dominican Republic—met weekly at Pace or in someone’s office. (They “remoted in” the student in the DR by phone.)

“It’s not as easy as being in a classroom setting, where you can raise your hand and get the answer to a question,” Mr. Valentini said. “It’s not a super-interactive environment. You have to find a way to make it work for yourself. When you’re remote, you have to figure it out—go online, do research, find an explanation on YouTube. But the good part is that you learn how to piece things together on your own.”

Westchester County Business Journal: "Businesses cite Ex-Im’s value as bank remains in flux"

Westchester County Business Journal: "Businesses cite Ex-Im’s value as bank remains in flux"

. . . John Alan James, chairman emeritus of Pace University’s Center for Global Governance, Reporting and Regulation, said that perception is inaccurate.

“There’s never been any taxpayer payment,” he said. “The profits made from the deals that were good, covered any losses.”

In other words, the fees and interest the agency charges with its services help cover any deficits from deals that fall through.

“The Ex-Im Bank has played an important role, and hopefully will continue to do so, for both huge U.S. corporations and their sourcing partners here in the states and abroad,” James said.
