    Excerpt from WalletHub -- "If someone is agnostic about where to travel -- say she simply wants to visit Italy, broadly defined -- I think a good piece of advice is to travel to "second" cities that are less crowded and more reasonably priced. For example, rather than visiting Rome or Florence, go to Parma or Bologna. If someone must see Rome or Florence, and has a tight budget, I would plan on traveling off-season, right before or after the core tourist season, and look for travel, lodging, and entertainment coupons and deals."

    Excerpt from Fit Small Business -- "Cryptocurrency is treated as property for tax purposes. If you don’t convert it immediately to cash, you may have a capital gain or loss in the future when you eventually sell the currency. There is also the need to convert crypto into real currency for accounting and financial reporting purposes. For example, to report revenue, the crypto is required to be in your base currency, which is different from a company that has revenue in both dollars and euros but simply reports everything in dollars."

    Excerpt from The Daily Beast -- "David Yermack, the chair of New York University’s finance department who teaches courses on cryptocurrency, said buyers of any cryptocurrency should read the fine print to understand what they’re purchasing.

'You see people thinking they’re going to make a profit and flip this to someone more gullible next week. It’s what we in finance call the greater fool theory.'"

If you now assume a universe of factories that’s larger than 8,000, that just shows that a lot of workers are still unprotected and fall outside of the scope of these programs.'"

    Excerpt from Find MBA -- "At NYU Stern, students doing an MBA in general management can select up to three specializations—or choose not to specialize at all. As of fall 2016, Stern’s full-time and part-time MBA students can also choose FinTech as a specialization, a first among top business schools, and take electives from eight new courses. 'We have twice the enrollment expected in our inaugural Foundations of FinTech course, being taught for the first time this fall to undergraduates and in the spring to MBAs,' says Kathleen DeRose, FinTech Executive-in-Residence at NYU Stern. 'We're even expanding beyond the MBA program in our course offerings as the popularity of the newly created foundational course has been way above expectations.'"

    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "Not only is the center centrally located — four blocks from the Capitol building and 15 minutes from the airport and Union Station — but it also allows the program’s structure and infrastructure to be entirely owned by NYU and Stern. That’s something Sundaram points to as an important factor in deciding to take the EMBA to a new region. He adds that the proximity from New York to Washington makes for relatively short commute for professors who teach in the program."

Students also complete a global study tour, which consists of a week living in another market outside of the U.S."

So we have $2.5 trillion sitting off shore, and we were talking about tax reform. ... Even if you said to U.S. firms, we're going to allow you to bring all those $2.5 trillion assets back tax-free, just a 5% charge, to fund a national skills development pool, that would give you a $250 billion endowment to begin thinking about seriously addressing the skills gap, for instance. I've seen nothing that bold on the table to really say that we're going to address the downsides of globalization."
