AOL Jobs, The Journal News: Professor John Alan James quoted in big name business articles

John Alan James, professor of business management at Pace University, is sought out for his expertise in the world of Business as he is quoted in AOL Jobs and  The Journal News online this week.

“Whether a company can simply up and move to avoid new or higher taxes depends on the size and type of business, John Alan James, professor of business management at Pace University, told AOL Jobs.

Larger companies with a lot of employees and significant infrastructure in a state probably won’t opt to move lock, stock and barrel. But they may choose to show their displeasure at higher taxes by siting a new plant or subsidiary somewhere else.

That’s especially true in today’s global marketplace where cheaper labor can be found in countries around the world, says James, who served as Connecticut’s first director of International Business Economic Development.-“

Bloomberg Businessweek: “Goldman Model Championed by Blankfein Planted Seeds of Distress”

Pace professor Eric Kessler was mentioned in an article this week from Bloomberg Businessweek.

Pace professor Eric Kessler was mentioned in an article this week from Bloomberg Businessweek.

From the article:

The window shades were lowered to block out the sunlight soaking lower Manhattan on a Friday afternoon in June as 14 students in Eric H. Kessler’s executive MBA class gathered in a conference room to present their analyses of Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s leadership.

The firm’s management shows “resistance to change” and is “doing business in a bubble,” one of the three student teams explained in a PowerPoint presentation. Another recommended creating an “ethics role” within Goldman Sachs’s securities division. Kessler, who teaches management at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business, peppered the students with questions. Could cohesive culture be a weakness as well as a strength?

The Westchester County Business Journal writes an article featuring Pace and its 100 million dollar master plan to restructure and consolidate the Pleasantville Campus.

Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer William McGrath explains that ‘”We see the long-term benefit of having a beautiful, competitive campus in the center of the county, but it’s very aligned with the county executive’s vision of Westchester County being the intellectual capital of the state… It is something that is good for economic development.”’

The new campus should be ready in the Fall 2015 if everything goes as planned.

The New York Times: “Who Made This Mess of Planet Earth”

Andrew C. Revkin’s association with Pace was mentioned in the author’s note to his favorable review of “Here On Earth” in the July 17th New York Times Book Review.

Andrew C. Revkin, the senior fellow for environmental understanding at Pace University, favorably reviews “Here On Earth”  in his Dot Earth blog for the Opinion Pages of NYTimes.com while commenting on today’s environmental situation.

From the article:

An overwhelming majority of scientists agree that humans have upended hosts of ecosystems and are exerting a growing and potentially calamitous influence on the climate. Some, perhaps in response to public indifference, have a tendency to push beyond the data in arguing for action. “Here on Earth” places Flannery in this group. I had a moment, about halfway in, when I was ready to give up in the face of overheated descriptions of environmental problems. But I stuck it out and was heartened to see Flannery abandon the rhetoric of shame and woe and turn to a more reasoned assessment of a young, intelligent species that finds itself in quite a predicament. After all, it’s not easy being the first life-form to become both a planet-scale force and — ever so slowly and uncomfortably — aware of that fact. That awareness is in its early stages and, as Flannery notes, “infancy is the most dangerous period of life.”

NY Daily News, Patch: “Bronx high school girls attend weeklong summer law program at Pace University”

About 40 girls applied for the free program and there is a stipend upon completion.

A New York Daily News article announces the start of a week long summer program at Pace University which has been held for 3 years now for “young minority women from disadvantaged homes”. About 40 girls applied for the free program and there is a stipend upon completion. This story was also picked up by the White Plains Patch.

From the New York Daily News:

“These girls are raising the bar for ways to spend summer vacation.

Female high school students from the Bronx and Westchester County are participating in a weeklong summer law program at Pace Law School in White Plains, beginning Monday.

The program was started three years ago by Bronx County Supreme Court Justice La Tia Martin, and is offered to young minority women from disadvantaged homes.

“It really is a phenomenal program that gives high school female students an opportunity to interact with judges, lawyers and professors,” said Martin, who started the summer academy as president of the New York chapter of the National Association of Women Judges.

“It also teaches them life skills, study skills and leadership qualities,” she said, adding that she hopes to expand the program to eight weeks.

This year’s class of would-be legal eagles boasts 23 students from Westchester, 10 students from the Bronx and two students from other areas. About 40 girls applied for the free session, which offers a stipend at the end of the session.

Next week, the girls will be heading to Washington for private tours of the Supreme Court, the Capitol and, possibly, the White House.

“I’m interested in learning more about the little things that have to do with the law,” said Francesca Martin, 15. “In mock trial, everything is pretty much handed to you.”

The timely program is taking off as high-profile cases, such as that of Dominique Strauss-Kahn and Casey Anthony, are in the headlines.

“Domestic violence and criminal matters are involving more women – more women seem to be prosecuted – and we’re also going to discuss same-sex marriage, cyber-bullying and human trafficking,” Martin said.

Aqsa Nadeem, 18, participated in the program its first two summers, and is now a mentor. She said being around strong female role models made her a more confident public speaker.

“I didn’t even know some laws existed,” marveled the Yonkers resident. “Our professor showed us actual trials and asked us to analyze them. It was a great opportunity.”

Nadeem plans to study biology at Drexel University in the fall, but she is keeping her options open.

“Now I’m looking at law as well after this program,” she said. “I met a woman who was a lawyer and a pediatric doctor, so I guess maybe I can do both, too!”
