TucsonCitizen.com: “The American psyche bounces back after 9/11”

TucsonCitizen.com quotes Psychology professor K. Mark Sossin, who was part of a panel of 12,000 psychology professionals in the annual American Psychological Association’s meeting in Washington this week, on the research of 9/11 psychological trauma.

TucsonCitizen.com quotes Psychology professor K. Mark Sossin, who was part of a panel on the research about 9/11 psychological trauma this week at the annual American Psychological Association’s meeting in Washington, DC:

“9/11 was not just an event trauma. It was the loss of the assumptive world,” he says. “When you presume and assume you’ll wake up to the same safety net that you had yesterday and you don’t, you not only lose that assumption, you lose all related assumptions.”

Pace University will host a symposium on September 8 focusing on the impact of news images that followed 9/11.

Journal News: “Pace moves to close Briarcliff Manor campus, expand, renovate Pleasantville location”

The Journal News reports on Pace’s upcoming expansion and renovation of the Pleasantville campus.

The Journal News reports on Pace’s upcoming expansion and renovation of the Pleasantville campus.

From the article:

With an eye toward making itself more competitive, Pace University is envisioning a more cohesive campus core — by consolidating its two campuses situated 2.5 miles apart and creating a pedestrian friendly terrain with a central campus green.

The university is planning to embark on a $150 million project that would shut its 37-acre Briarcliff Manor campus while improving and reconfiguring its 200-acre Pleasantville campus.

“We are trying to address the inherent weakness of having two separate campuses. It’s not an attractive feature, it’s a competitive disadvantage,” said William McGrath, the chief administrative officer at Pace who is in charge of the master plan project.

The Guardian: “Barack Obama’s record on the environment”

Andrew Revkin is featured in The Guardian’s article on Barack Obama and the environment. Revkin critiques Obama’s “green” strategies and claims that his greatest achievement has been the ability “to seek compromise… on tough issues like moving forward with tough new fuel economy standards for vehicles.”

Andrew Revkin is featured in The Guardian’s article on Barack Obama and the environment. Revkin critiques Obama’s “green” strategies and claims that his greatest achievement has been the ability “to seek compromise… on tough issues like moving forward with tough new fuel economy standards for vehicles.”

From the article:

President Obama spent too much political energy backing the traditional environmental stance that human-driven global warming was a conventional pollution problem that could be cleaned up like sewage or smog through regulation. His vision of the “green jobs” benefits from stimulus spending — focused on near-term, visible work like caulking windows — was far too truncated, and he lost the chance to build a broader coalition around making a sustained energy quest America’s new imperative. That approach could have gained more support and would more accurately reflect the momentous shift that would be required to supply energy to some 9 billion people by mid-century with the fewest regrets.

His greatest achievement has been maintaining the capacity to seek compromise, outside the glare of polarized public discourse, on tough issues like moving forward with tough new fuel economy standards for vehicles. It is that quality that, should he win a second term, provides the prospect for building a sustainable energy future and environment for the country and the planet.

The New York Times (front page): “Weiner’s Exit Sets Off a Race to Be Israel’s Better Friend”

Pace made the front page of Tuesday’s New York Times, where Chris Malone, prominently identified as an associate professor of political science at Pace, was quoted saying the forthcoming race to replace Congressman Anthony Wiener “will be a one-upsmanship on who is more pro-Israel.” At the end of the article, Malone also provided a second mention of Pace and the closing “kicker”: “Dr. Malone, the Pace political scientist, predicted that other issues would indeed emerge in the campaign, but said the importance of the Jewish vote would remain.

“There’s bigger fish to fry,” he said, “as long as they’re fried kosher.”

The New York Times: “Law Student’s Alter Ego: Filmmaker”

Anthony Desiato, a current Pace law student and comic shop employee, is featured in an interesting article in the New York Times after making a documentary or “D.I.Y film” as his “creative outlet… ‘in order to stay sane'” and landed the coveted chance to show it at Comic-Con.

Anthony Desiato, a current Pace law student and comic shop employee, is featured in an interesting article in the New York Times after making a documentary or “D.I.Y film” as his “creative outlet… ‘in order to stay sane'” and landed the coveted chance to show it at Comic-Con.

The film is a sweet-natured exploration of Mr. Oto’s quirky relationship with his shop, his employees and his loyal, foul-mouthed and eccentric clientele, some of them man-cave-dwellers who seem to have sprung from the pages of the comic books they hoard and devour. Mr. Desiato’s collection, of 500 graphic novels and 100 superhero statuettes, is confined to his bedroom at his parents’ home.

He wrapped the film in time to return to law school in the fall and then went toWithoutabox, an online hub for film festival submissions, and sent out a dozen paid applications. The movie was picked up by NewFilmmakers, which screened it at Anthology Film Archives in May. Now comes Comic-Con, a mainstream event that draws 130,000 comics aficionados each summer. Mr. Desiato’s was one of just five documentaries accepted.

Journal News: “Pace climate center’s new chief shuns spin on Indian Point”

Journal News reports that Franz Litz is set to take position as Chief of Pace’s Climate Center this Monday. Litz does not “believe in shutting down Indian Point if it’s going to be replaced by natural gas plants, as some have suggested.”

Journal News reports that Franz Litz is set to take position as Chief of Pace’s Climate Center this Monday. Litz does not “believe in shutting down Indian Point if it’s going to be replaced by natural gas plants, as some have suggested.”

From the article:

“There are no emissions from nuclear. I think we can come up with a sensible plan to replace it, but it shouldn’t just be resorting to natural gas,” he said. “We need to increase conservation. But I’m not naive enough to think we can replace Indian Point with rooftop solar panels.”

The first order of business, he said, will be analyzing where the replacement power is going to come from if Indian Point is closed in the near future — like when its last license runs out in December 2015.
