Derek Segars ’23 comes from a family of Detroit public servants and has always placed a strong value on it as a result. “My great-grandfather was a bus driver for the City of Detroit, my grandfather was a police officer, my father was a fire safety inspector and arson investigator, and my mother was a social worker for 25 years,” said Derek. “I grew up surrounded by public servants and understanding the importance of dedicating your career to helping others.”

“This reminds me very much of the 3-letter agencies in this country having said they won’t use Lenovo laptops anymore,” Darren Hayes, the CIS Program Chair at Pace University, told the E-Commerce Times. “With mobile devices there’s always going to be areas of memory that a forensic examiner can’t access, whether it’s a ROM chip or any other kind of memory, and one of the issues for intelligence here is, we don’t have access to all the memory on these devices and don’t know what they can do.”

Pace University Clinical Professor of Management Bruce Bachenheimer said in the report that tax breaks and other incentives to encourage new businesses often don’t produce net economic gains for states. “Businesses may take advantage of these new incentives while they last, but then look to move on to the next economic opportunity just as quickly,” he said. “States should conduct the same careful due diligence and long-term analysis that corporations do when crafting such incentives,” he said.

John Nolon, distinguished professor of law emeritus at the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University, is widely seen as one of the most prominent thought leaders in land use law. The roots of this focus, which fueled a career that spanned decades, can be traced to his childhood on a ranch in Nebraska. “There didn’t seem to be too much confusion about the fact that we’d take care of the land and use it and make a profit from it, but that we would always treat it with respect,” Nolon recalled.

Layoffs are once again making headlines.

After a period when it seemed like employers couldn’t hire fast enough — which unfortunately led some young people to forego college in favor of readily available work — things are slowing down. And, perhaps most frighteningly, layoffs are hitting even blue-chip, successful companies. Google’s parent, Alphabet, is laying off 12,00 employees. Microsoft will lay off 10,000. Amazon laid off 10,000 — and then started laying off 8,000 more. Goldman Sachs laid off 3,000; ad agencies, media companies, and even videogame makers are announcing rounds of layoffs. Who knows when the layoffs will end at Twitter.
