Wall Street Journal: "For Westchester Towns, a New Type of Energy Contract"

. . . Karl Rábago, executive director of the Pace Energy and Climate Center at the Pace Law School, said other communities in New York will be watching how well the program works. “You get a better deal with a bigger purchase. That’s smart,” Mr. Rábago said.

ConEdison Solutions supplies renewable energy to over 25 community choice aggregation programs in Massachusetts and New Jersey. The Westchester program will be one of its largest aggregation contracts in terms of the number of customers, the company said. “We view this as a groundbreaking contract in New York state,” Sam Morgan, regional sales manager for ConEdison Solutions.

The municipalities are: the towns of Bedford, Greenburgh, Mamaroneck, Mount Kisco, New Castle, and Ossining; the villages of Hastings-on-Hudson, Irvington, Larchmont, Mamaroneck, Ossining, Pelham, Pleasantville, Rye Brook, Tarrytown; and cities of New Rochelle and White Plains.

Daily News: "Sponsors begin to drop Maria Sharapova"

Daily News: "Sponsors begin to drop Maria Sharapova"

. . . In 2015, Forbes estimated her endorsement earnings at $23 million. But it will take a lot to get that earning power back, says Larry Chiagouris, a professor of marketing at Pace University’s business school. “This is going to pretty much bring to an end for some time to come her ability to draw commercial sponsorships,” Chiagouris tells the Daily News. “That’s partly a function of her age. She’s at a later stage in her career where she’d have to come back and win championships to prove everyone wrong.”

Chiagouris, a former chairman of the Advertising Research Foundation, predicts sponsors will protect their brands by steering away from Sharapova unless she can win championships in the next few years. “They have so many options — so many younger up-and-coming, less expensive athletes. Why should they take a risk with her?” he says.

Inc.: "4 Moves You Must Make to Create a Billion-Dollar Company"

Inc.: "4 Moves You Must Make to Create a Billion-Dollar Company"

. . .  Bruce Bachenheimer, a clinical professor of management at Pace University, agrees with the researchers that the economic environment has changed dramatically for entrepreneurs, making it much more difficult for young companies to form and grow. One key reason is the decimation of savings and home ownership rates, which both provided much-needed financing to startups in prior decades.

"[The declining rate of entrepreneurship] has to do with the financial crisis, wage stagnation, and housing price declines since 2008, and it has to do with the erosion of the middle class," Bachenheimer says.

Houston Chronicle: "Outsiders rending Republican Party in Texas too"

. . . "Tea party groups have been very effective at controlling low-turnout primaries in Texas and other states, and if they support Trump that could be the beginning of a more permanent morphing that could change politics," said David A. Caputo, a noted political science professor and president emeritus at New York's Pace University. "The question is, if Trump does not get the nomination, where do his supporters go?"

Westchester County Business Journal: "Age-old profession of accounting changing with the economy"

Westchester County Business Journal: "Age-old profession of accounting changing with the economy"

. . . The perception of desirability and loyalty to the old-guard of corporations is waning and being replaced with the innovative spirit of the entrepreneur, said Bruce Bachenheimer, clinical professor of management at Pace University and executive director of the school’s entrepreneurship lab.

“A very large percentage of students say they are interested in starting their own company or working at a startup as opposed to the previous generation before, where the goal was to get a job with a big name company,” he said. “Partially that is because of all the changes we have seen in the economy, but also these students have seen their parents laid-off and unemployed and looking for other work, so I think there has been a shift in the mentality.”

In the world of entrepreneurs, the role of accounting has moved beyond bookkeeping to one of critical importance as a strategic role in a company’s positioning for future growth, he said.

Startups looking to raise outside funds from angel and venture investors or who have their eyes on going public or being acquired must manage their books in a tactical way from the get-go, he said.

“The last thing you want to do when you are looking to raise angel money, venture capital money and then ultimately to be acquired or to do an IPO is to have backwards books where you really didn’t know what you were doing and kept a bunch of receipts in a shoebox,” he said.

La Opinión: "La ‘crisis Trump’ sacude al partido republicano y hace dudar de su futuro"

. . . La profesora Jessica Lavariega-Monforti, directora del departamento de ciencias políticas de la Universidad Pace en Nueva York, dijo que esto es el resultado de 20 años de posturas antigobierno, antiestablecimiento y antidiversidad, que hasta ahora sirvieron al partido republicano para atraer el voto de quienes hoy apoyan a Trump.

El partido está en crisis. Cuando tu base de votantes quieren a un candidato que el liderazgo no quiere, esto es lo que pasa. Pero esta es la consecuencia de lo que ellos han venido vendiendo durante muchos años y lo más gracioso es que se hacen los sorprendidos”, dijo Lavariega-Monforti.

Lavariega Monforti agrega que “no es mucho lo que pueden hacer”, dijo Trump logra los delegados necesarios para ganar.
