On this month’s Study With the Best, we’ll look at the reasons why coyotes are moving to urban areas and see if there is any danger to humans, from the point of view of Baruch College adjunct Mark Weckel. We profile Lissette Ortiz, a Medgar Evers student who recently introduced Bill Clinton at Mayor Bill de Blasio’s inauguration. Then we’ll travel out to Long Island and have coffee and cake with the Swiffer couple, Lee and Morty Kaufman, one of whom is a Hunter College alumna. We’ll revisit BMCC’s Barry Rosen’s fascinating story about being a hostage of the Iranians, and finally profile CUNY Law School graduate Matt Edge, who is trying to loosen the influence of money on politics and elections.
