A NEW REDFIN SURVEY REVEALS HOW POLITICAL DIFFERENCES HAVE BECOME DIVISIVE enough to affect housing preferences. Up to 42% of U. S. residents would be hesitant to move to an area where most people have political views different from their own, up from 32% in June. Similarly, the share of people who are hesitant to relocate to an area where they would be in the racial, ethnic or religious minority also increased to…
She can inform about economics and today’s headlines, but there’s more than numbers behind quant expert and lifetime horse-jumper Amy Crews Cutts.
JULIE LANE HAS “COMPLETED” 10 MARATHONS. She’s very precise about it. Not “run.” Not “raced” in. But completed. She’s telling me this like I’m going to go back and check the footage or something. But that’s not it at all. It’s just that she has a thing for very precise information. It’s all about having good data. (That’s just the way she is.)
So she tells me that she did not, in fact, run all 26.2 miles of those 10 marathons. Nope, that’s not what happened. Non-stop running did not occur. She “definitely ran some, but there was a lot of walking in there, too.” And just to make sure I totally got her approach, she says: “I never run for ‘times’ but rather for the goal and the love of running and training…
KEOSHA BURNS IS A TOTAL EXTROVERT. SHE LOVES THE BIG CITY. Even her dog is a big city kind of guy. They found their happy place in the heart of New York City.

We reached her on April 9, on her cell, out in the garden, working remotely.
Like most of us she’s been living life under quarantine, far from New York, in a strange state (geographically speaking), missing the buzz of the big city.
When they are home, Winston, a 3-year old, 31-pound Frenchie, loves his walks in Marcus Garvey Park (where he’s something of a celebrity.) On good days (say, two/three months ago), they would stroll down 125thStreet near their place, past the Whole Foods, on the way to the park.
