However, many industry veterans feel that the rules may hurt those they are designed to protect, primarily low income borrowers.On January 14, Congress’ House Financial Services Committee held a conference to discuss how homeowners may be harmed by the new CFPB rulings. Speakers said low-to-moderate income borrowers stand to lose the most if lenders cannot write loans outside of the Qualified Mortgage (QM) guidelines.“In rural areas, it is crucial to tailor mortgages to fit borrowers’ needs and risk profiles,” one lawmaker noted. Another lawmaker who represents a state where 50 percent of the homes consist of manufactured housing said most of the housing loans in his state will not meet QM standards.Speaking on “Mortgage Markets Today,” Chris Whalen, EVP and managing director for Carrington Holding Company, discussed the pitfalls in the new regulations with Louis Amaya, host of the Five Star Internet radio show and CEO of iServe Companies.“I think these concerns are well founded,” Whalen said. “Under the new CFPB rules, about half the prospective homeowners in this country can’t get a mortgage from a bank because the new laws have greatly restricted credit access.”Whalen warns this indicates the mortgage industry will be tightening. “We’re basically replaying what happened in the late 1920s and 1930s in terms of stifling credit creation,” he said.Under the new QM rules, a borrower must have a FICO score of 740 or higher. In addition, debt-to-income ratio can be no higher than 43 percent. Whalen explained that although these rules disqualify a lot of borrowers, they give the lender assurances about possible lawsuits.“If you write a Qualified Mortgage following these rules, then you have what is essentially a safe harbor against many types of litigation,” Whalen explained. “However, it’s still possible for a borrower to sue. There is arguably more litigation risk for lenders today than there has been in the past.”Whalen says there is still a demand for non-QM loans—financing for borrowers with FICO scores down into the mid-600s but who can also pay 20 to 25 percent down. However, the problem is that most investors will not buy these loans.“You can’t sell them to the government, which is 95 percent of the market today,” Whalen said. “It’s relatively easy to find investors for jumbos and high-quality borrowers, but for loans made to lower quality borrowers, there is no obvious investor. That’s why it’s not working so far. There is some demand, but it’s relatively small.”Lending in this category may increase in a couple of years when lenders and servicers can see to what degree there is successful litigation concerning non-QM loans. This will give them a better idea of what the risk profile is.“In a transaction with a less affluent borrower, lenders are going to be much more reluctant to exceed those CFPB rules for the simple fact that they may be working for a $2,000 profit on a loan over its lifetime,” Whalen said. “If they are sued in a jurisdiction like California, they could end up with a settlement that is much higher. How many times is someone going to take that risk?”According to Whalen, it’s going to be a few years into the future before non-QM loans are an investor preference. “They’re going to wait until they can better understand the risk in purchasing non-QM loans,” he said.Nevertheless, Whalen says there are a lot of interesting dynamics in this market. “We are going to probably see a very strong market for non-conforming loans this year because there is still more than $200 billion in loans that have not been resolved sitting on the books of the banks.”Whalen’s predictions for the mortgage market in 2014: “I think loan volume numbers will continue to slump through this year, and we will probably see home prices start to weaken as well.“In addition, I think we’re going to see a lot of pressure on politicians and regulators to take another look at these rules because I think we have gone too far. These new rules are limiting credit availability at a time when we want to make credit grow in this economy so that we can generate jobs. Unfortunately, the current regulatory regime is going to stifle credit creation, and it’s going to greatly limit access to mortgage credit for American consumers.”Whalen closed his predictions with “It’s going to be a challenge going forward for some organizations to stay in this market, be compliant, and as a result, be able to do business and do so profitably.”The Five Star Institute and iServe Companies have partnered to create “Mortgage Markets Today,” an in-depth, formal talk radio resource featuring expert guests, quality subject matter, and timely insights. The show delves into a vast array of topics ranging from the secondary market and federal compliance standards to real estate and mortgage lending.Investors, lenders, service providers, and all those interested in and affected by the mortgage and housing markets can tune in on the Web at or download audio podcasts of program broadcasts from iTunes.

first_imgDNY59/iStockBy BILL HUTCHINSON and WHITNEY LLOYD(MINNEAPOLIS) — The murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd kicked off Monday with prosecutors asking the judge to put jury selection on hold.Before jury selection could begin, Chauvin’s defense attorney, Eric Nelson, told the court that he will file a petition for the Minnesota Supreme Court to review a Court of Appeals decision issued on Friday asking that trial Judge Peter Cahill consider reinstating a third-degree murder charge against Chauvin.State prosecutor Matthew Frank requested that Cahill delay jury selection in light of the defense petition regarding the additional charge.“We won’t know exactly what the charges are if we now go forward and start picking the jury,” Frank argued. “So this court would be making decisions about jurors for a trial about which we don’t know what the exact charges are going to be yet. And that jeopardy, once it attaches, that clearly cannot happen.”When Cahill refused the request to delay the high-profile case, Frank told the court he would file a motion seeking further direction from the appellate court on whether Chauvin’s trial should proceed with jury selection while a decision on whether to allow the third-degree charge is pending in the state Supreme Court.“Unless the Court of Appeals tells me otherwise we’re going to keep going,” Cahill told the attorneys Monday afternoon after going over a series of motions, most agreed on by the prosecution and defense.Cahill said he will call potential jurors back on Tuesday morning.Opening arguments in the trial are tentatively scheduled to begin on March 29. The trial is expected to last up to two months and prosecutors and defense attorneys said they plan to call nearly 400 potential witnesses to testify, 362 by the prosecution.The Court of Appeals ruled that Cahill erred when he dropped the third-degree murder charge against Chauvin in October and asked him to reconsider his decision. Cahill, in response to the Court of Appeals ruling, stated that because Chauvin planned to asked the state Supreme Court to review the appellate decision, he does not have jurisdiction to even entertain arguments on whether he should reinstate the third-degree charge.In light of the state’s intent to file a motion to delay the proceedings, Cahill put jury selection on hold until at least Tuesday to give Frank time to file his request for guidance from the appeals court.“The State is fully ready to go to trial, but the trial must be conducted in accordance with the rules and the law,” Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, whose office is prosecuting Chauvin, said in a statement “Now that Mr. Chauvin has stated his intention to appeal Friday’s Court of Appeals ruling to the Minnesota Supreme Court, as is his right, the district court does not have jurisdiction to conduct jury selection or hear and rule on other substantive matters in the trial. We have filed a motion with the Court of Appeals to ensure that justice is pursued properly.”Chauvin is already facing charges of second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.“We are not trying to delay this case,” Frank said. “We want to try it right … we don’t want to create appeal issues,” Frank said.Chauvin’s lawyer, Eric Nelson, said in court that he believes that jury selection can proceed while they wait for the Supreme Court to review the Court of Appeals ruling on third-degree murder.“We are prepared to try this case. It is not our intent to delay this case,” Nelson said.The legal wrangling commenced Monday as a large crowd of protesters demanding justice for Floyd demonstrated outside the Hennepin County Courthouse.“I’m expecting justice,” Floyd’s sister, Bridgett Floyd, told ABC News as she entered the courthouse. “We’re gonna walk out of there with a conviction.”Chauvin, 44, who was videotaped kneeling on Floyd’s neck for a prolonged period of time on the day the 46-year-old Black man died, is being tried separately from three other former officers involved in the death that prompted protests nationwide. J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao are charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and manslaughter and are scheduled to go on trial in August.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

first_imgThe molting, spawning, and recruitment of northern krill (Meganyctiphanes norvegica) were analyzed over an annual cycle (1999-2000) in the Clyde Sea (west coast of Scotland). Results supported the hypothesis of a functional relationship between egg production and molt development for the duration of the reproductive season (March to August), with one reproductive cycle being made up of two molt cycles. Females remained in reproductive condition throughout the reproductive season, and the timing of their spawning and molting was synchronized at the population level throughout this period. A semiempirical model predicted that the krill population produced an egg pulse every 20 to 26 d (depending on temperature), and three cohorts were evident in net samples taken later in the year. The likely date on which the first cohort was spawned was around 26 d after the main phytoplankton bloom, suggesting that the bloom triggered egg development in all adult females. Such a synchronized spawning period was observed directly in adult females 26 d after a bloom in March 2000. A total of three cohorts over the 6-month reproductive season is less than the maximum of seven that would be possible if spawning occurred at a periodicity of between 20 and 26 d, suggesting that larval recruitment was not always successful. Analysis showed that successful recruitment was only achieved when chlorophyll a levels were adequate during both the period of egg maturation in the ovary and the subsequent development of larvae, especially the furcilia stages.last_img read more

first_imgAngel Food Bakery is distributing leftover products through waste-prevention app, Olio. The Brighton-based business uploads photographs and descriptions of products to the app, which people in the area can then apply for and collect from the bakery.Olio is a free app that allows neighbours and business to exchange foodstuffs. The app launched in London last summer and recently went live in Brighton and Hove.Claire Tymoshyshyn, manager of Angel Food Bakery, told British Baker: “It’s really good, as sometimes we do just have a few cakes left over and we don’t have time to hand them over to homeless people.”The bakery is giving away its product for free, but does ask for a voluntary donation, some of which goes to animal rescue charity Sussex Pet Rescue.Tymoshyshyn said: “What we do is ask for a small donation depending on the size of the box we have. Half goes on the packaging and the rest to charity.“It’s a nice way to give something back. We’re not just saving cakes from the bin, but donating to charity as well.”In the future, Tymoshyshyn hopes to prevent even more waste by exchanging unwanted ingredients with other local business, such as egg yolks left over from macaron production.last_img read more

first_img <a href=”” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”> <img src=”” alt=”0″ title=”How To Choose The Correct Channel Type For Your Video Content ” /> </a> While all groups spent the same 20 minutes face-to-face with physicians, blacks and Hispanics spent approximately 25 percent longer when seeking health care than whites, a result of increased travel, wait, and administrative times. Courtesy of Harvard Medical School Writing in the American Journal of Managed Care, the researchers reported that the average total visit time for a person seeking care for themselves, a child, or another adult was 121 minutes. That total includes 37 minutes of travel time and 84 minutes in the clinic. Of those 84 minutes, people spent only 20 minutes with physicians; they spent the rest of the time waiting, interacting with nonphysician staff, or completing paperwork or billing.Economists calculate the value of time spent doing an activity — known as opportunity cost — based on the income that an individual would earn working the same amount of time. The researchers calculated that the average opportunity cost per visit was $43, compared with an average out-of-pocket cost per visit of $32.“We also found that this time burden fell disproportionately on the disadvantaged,” said Kristin Ray, assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.Writing in JAMA Internal Medicine, the researchers reported that, while all groups spent the same 20 minutes face-to-face with physicians, blacks and Hispanics spent approximately 25 percent longer when seeking health care than whites, a result of increased travel, wait, and administrative times. Lower-income groups and the unemployed also spent more time seeking care than their better-off counterparts.“Typically, when we talk about how much we spend on health care, we focus on what is paid to doctors and hospitals through co-pays and insurance payments,” said Mehrotra, who is also a physician and HMS professor of medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. “This work helps us put a dollar amount on the significant time it costs people to seek health care.”The researchers said that it is important to consider time costs when evaluating innovative treatment and care delivery models designed to create higher-value, more-patient-centered care and to reduce health care disparities. They noted that many initiatives currently underway might offer considerable benefits in reducing the time-cost burden of health care. These initiatives include streamlining office visits; incorporating clinics into schools, community centers, and places of work; and using new models of care delivery, such as telemedicine visits, e-visits, and other Internet-powered medicine.The researchers combined data from several sources to calculate time spent in transit, at the clinic, and with clinicians face-to-face. One key resource was the American Time Use Survey, which ties detailed reporting about how respondents spend their day in a given 24-hour period with demographic and income information. In 2010, people in the United States spent 1.1 billion hours seeking health care for themselves or for loved ones. That time was worth $52 billion.“That’s about the same as all of the time worked in a year by the entire working population of the city of Dallas,” said Ateev Mehrotra, associate professor of health care policy and medicine at Harvard Medical School (HMS). Mehrotra is a lead author of two studies published this fall that measure the amount of time patients spend seeking care; calculate the total time costs to society; and analyze the difference in time burden by race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status.The hidden cost of health carelast_img read more
