CFPB extends sunset date for the GSE patch

first_imgOn October 20, 2020 the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) finalized a rule extending the expiration date of certain “temporary” qualified mortgages (QM) also called the government sponsored entity (GSE) patch. This type of QM had a sunset date of January 10, 2021. Rather than extend this deadline to a specific date, this rule is effective until the bureau finalizes additional changes to the ATR/QM rule, or when the GSEs exit conservatorship, whichever occurs first.As background, the Dodd-Frank Act and section 1026.43 of Regulation Z require credit unions to make a reasonable, good faith determination that a borrower has the ability to repay (ATR) any consumer credit transaction that is secured by a dwelling, with some exceptions (e.g. home equity lines of credit). This involves consideration of eight specific underwriting factors. If a loan meets certain criteria, it is a QM and is considered to be in compliance with the ATR requirements. Currently, there are four types of QMs in the regulation:General QM, where the debt-to-income ratio is capped at 43%;Small creditor portfolio QM;Small creditor balloon-payment QM; andTemporary QM, which must be eligible to be purchased by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac (the GSE patch)Note – a fifth category of QM was added by statute in 2018 and has not been implemented into the regulation.

Whicker: Punishing the Lakers over Magic Johnson’s comment would be a late-night joke

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThere is jeopardy here for the Lakers, who could lose draft picks. Although it’s far-fetched, they could even be banned from signing George when he hits free agency next summer. A majority of NBA owners would stand on chairs to applaud that.In 2013 the Atlanta Hawks were fined when an employee e-mailed season ticket holders about the exciting prospect of signing Chris Paul and/or Dwight Howard, who weren’t available yet. Same thing happened when then-Kings coach Michael Malone said Chris Paul “would look pretty good in a Sacramento Kings uniform.” As if anyone does.The Miami Heat was fined $1 million and had to hand over a first-round pick to New York when it tampered with Pat Riley. But the NBA allowed Miami to hire Riley, who has provided three championships.The all-time tamper tantrum came from Atlanta Braves owner Ted Turner, who was admittedly knee-walking at a 1976 World Series party when he told Giants owner Robert Lurie that he would give outfielder Gary Matthews “more money than you’ll take in next year.” Turner was suspended for a season by Bowie Kuhn, but the suspension was reduced, and Atlanta kept Matthews.In this case, the trail of blood might lead to Magic Johnson’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night show on April 19, when Kimmel brought up the names of George and Chris Paul. “I wish I could talk about all of those guys,” Johnson said.“But that would be contract tampering, right?” Kimmel asked.When Kimmel asked Johnson what might happen if he randomly encountered George, Magic said he would speak “because we know each other.”Then he said, “I can’t say I want you come to the Lakers, even though I’ll be doing this” and started wink-winking.That was a big laugh line, of course, and if you watch the video you wonder if the NBA office should maybe take up meditation or soft-tissue massage or other chill-out activities. This did not rise to the level of corporate raiding.Magic probably shouldn’t have commented, but there was a live audience and Kimmel is a friend and a large Laker fan.But Magic could have left such comments to Brandon Ingram or Julius Randle or another Laker, even the league prohibits tampering by any “representative” of the organization.That speed limit is broken nearly every day.Sports Illustrated recounts the aftermath of the 2016 Finals, in which the Warriors’ Draymond Green sat at his locker and made a recruiting pitch to Kevin Durant, via text. Actually he just reinforced the pitch he had already made.“I’m ready,” Durant replied. A month later he signed with Golden State.LeBron James and Chris Bosh did not make independent decisions to join Dwyane Wade in Miami, seven years ago..Sometimes there is dis-tampering, as in the current boilover in Cleveland. According to Cleveland Scene magazine, Kyrie Irving decided to cast his line elsewhere when he was told James was advocating trading Irving to Phoenix for the No. 4 pick in the draft plus Eric Bledsoe, and then sending the pick to Indiana for George. If true, that means Irving was dis-tampered by his own teammate.And James, after he doggedly spun that heartwarming “homecoming” narrative three years ago, is positioning himself to leave Cleveland in 2018.Irving no longer wants the sidekick life, but he was so stifled by James that he averaged 19.7 field goal attempts last season. More than James, more than anybody but Russell Westbrook, Anthony Davis and DeMar DeRozan.Now he wants to abandon a season of near-guaranteed success.NBA stars have become barons, looking for property to oversee. It’s more about branding than bonding. When Westbrook can take 24 shots a game and play, unapologetically, for triple doubles on a sixth-seeded team and still win MVP, you see that the ethos has seeped into the bleachers and the press room.The priorities are power and manipulation. If winning follows, fine.So Golden State, San Antonio and Boston will have little immediate competition. They are geared toward communal success. As they showed when they dealt D’Angelo Russell and drafted Lonzo Ball, the Lakers are, too.If Magic did anything wrong, it was guilt by Association. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Tampering is an NBA problem, no doubt. Particularly when the tamperers and tamperees are one and the same.Paul George made it known, through the many media outlets and “industry sources” at his and his agent’s disposal, that he wanted out of Indiana and into Staples Center. His contract doesn’t end until next year.So now the NBA is investigating the Lakers for getting too public about George.This has become the definition of tampering, apparently. You might as well punish an ostrich for burying his head.last_img read more

Cultural Evolution Theory: Darwin Fail on Arrival

first_imgHere’s why theories on the evolution of human culture are doomed from the get-go.The National Academy of Sciences published a set of papers on Cultural Evolution recently. Some three dozen evolutionists, including Francisco Ayala, took part in the shebang, spilling their neurons about how the cultural practices of humans (and some other intelligent species, like dolphins), evolve by natural selection (the evolutionists’ answer to everything). We’ll list the papers with links to those interested, but then we’ll describe why Darwinian theories about cultural evolution are doomed from the outset. You might not want to waste your time on the papers, therefore, unless you want to examine them as a case study on how academics can become too smart to see their own illogic. Maybe that would make for a good paper in response. But don’t miss the surprise ending!First, let’s look at a press release from the Max Planck Institute about the project. Notice the problems they themselves freely acknowledge:To date, most research on cultural evolution focuses on microevolution; changes that occur within cultural groups over relatively short periods of time. However, as Russell Gray, Director of the Department of Linguistic and Cultural Evolution at MPI-SHH points out “processes observed at the micro level do not necessarily explain the macroevolutionary patterns and major transitions we observed in deeper human history.” In a new article by Russell Gray and Joseph Watts in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) present [sic] a “plea” for research on cultural macroevolution. The authors highlight the exciting potential to combined [sic] cutting edge statistical methods and comprehensive cross-cultural database to resolve longstanding debates about the major cultural transitions in human prehistory.Before even looking at the PNAS papers, therefore, we know that the evolutionists will not and cannot answer the big question! That question involves macroevolution of human culture by Darwinian processes (i.e., natural selection). Microevolution in culture, it could be argued, is intelligently designed by leadership decisions about what the group should do. On their own judgment, therefore, they have no evolutionary answers: only “potential” answers, which of course is the futureware fallacy.The lead article makes it clear that natural selection will be the only tool allowed in their explanatory toolkit. This is important for our analysis that follows. In “Cultural evolutionary theory: How culture evolves and why it matters ” (PNAS), Creanza, Kolodny and Feldman say this:Human culture encompasses ideas, behaviors, and artifacts that can be learned and transmitted between individuals and can change over time. This process of transmission and change is reminiscent of Darwin’s principle of descent with modification through natural selection, and Darwin himself drew this explicit link in the case of languages: “The formation of different languages and of distinct species, and the proofs that both have been developed through a gradual process, are curiously parallel”. Theory underpins most scientific endeavors, and, in the 1970s, researchers began to lay the groundwork for cultural evolutionary theory, building on the neo-Darwinian synthesis of genetics and evolution by using verbal, diagrammatic, and mathematical models. These models are, by necessity, approximations of reality, but because they require researchers to specify their assumptions and extract the most important features from complex processes, they have proven exceedingly useful in advancing the study of cultural evolution. Here, we review the field of cultural evolutionary theory as it pertains to the extension of biology through culture.Here are the other papers in the series with links, and indications that the authors are keeping to the Darwin-only rules. You can skip over these titles if you want, because as we will show afterwards, nothing they say matters anyway.Lotem et al., “The evolution of cognitive mechanisms in response to cultural innovations” (PNAS). “The authors used computer simulations to show that even in the presence of genetic variation, cultural conventions of language are like ‘moving targets’ for natural selection, making the evolution of genetic adaptations to specific languages highly implausible.” Later, “Whereas it is relatively easy to see how natural selection acts on clearly defined morphological traits, such as limbs, bones, or coloration, with cognitive traits that are not well understood, it is difficult to tell what is actually evolving.”Rai et al., “Dehumanization increases instrumental violence, but not moral violence” (PNAS). “Recent ethnographic and historical analyses, and classical works on the evolution of cooperation and the sociology of crime….” etc.Hal Whitehead, “Gene–culture coevolution in whales and dolphins” (PNAS). ” In all cases, socially learned behavior affects how individuals interact with their environment or with each other and thus affects the transmission patterns or selection pressures on genes.”Alex Mesoudi, “Pursuing Darwin’s curious parallel: Prospects for a science of cultural evolution” (PNAS). “This idea is the basic premise of cultural evolution: Cultural change constitutes a Darwinian evolutionary process that shares key characteristics with the genetic evolution of species.”Andrew Whiten, “Culture extends the scope of evolutionary biology in the great apes” (PNAS). “I address these issues first by evaluating the extent to which the results of cultural inheritance echo a suite of core principles that underlie organic Darwinian evolution but also extend them in new ways and then by assessing the principal causal interactions between the primary, genetically based organic processes of evolution and the secondary system of cultural inheritance that is based on social learning from others.”Whiten, Ayala, Feldman and Laland, “The extension of biology through culture” (PNAS). Darwin-lovers all, these four evolutionists mention Darwin almost worshipfully throughout their paper. “Initial explorations of Darwinian dynamics in the case of animal culture have taken the list of eight key properties extracted from the Origin of Species for testing with human data [the six listed above, plus changes of function and convergent evolution] and through examining studies of animal culture, concluded there is evidence for all of them (although minimal and slow-developing compared with the most recent, cumulative cultures of humans).”Errico et al., “Identifying early modern human ecological niche expansions and associated cultural dynamics in the South African Middle Stone Age” (PNAS). These authors appear to go beyond Darwin, but their additional process—exaptation—is just another form of natural selection that finds a new use for an existing trait. Both processes, however, are purely materialistic in evolutionary thinking, because it happens in worms as well as humans. “Our findings support the view that the path followed by past human populations to produce adaptations and cultural traits, which most researchers would qualify as typically human, is not the outcome of classic Darwinian evolutionary processes in which the appearance of a new niche is often associated with a new species. Rather, the innovations characteristic of the HP represent cultural exaptation: innovations that use existing skills, techniques, and ideas in new ways.”Katz, Grote and Weaver, “Changes in human skull morphology across the agricultural transition are consistent with softer diets in preindustrial farming groups” (PNAS). All materialistic, even though they think ‘plasticity’ in skull shape is more important than natural selection. “We therefore think genetic mechanisms should not be wholly discounted in studies of the effects of agriculture on skull morphology.”Stout and Hecht, “Evolutionary neuroscience of cumulative culture” (PNAS). Surprise! These authors prefer an “extended evolutionary synthesis” over classical Darwinism. No surprise: the EES is just as materialistic as the old neo-Darwinian synthesis. “Key questions include the extent and nature of overlap between processes supporting behavior execution, observation, and interpretation (e.g., ToM), and the relevance of evolutionary processes other than natural selection (e.g., CE [cultural evolution]). An emerging extended evolutionary synthesis (EES) effectively addresses both topics through its core concepts of constructive development and reciprocal causation.”Gray and Watts, “Cultural macroevolution matters” (PNAS). “Evolutionary thinking can be applied to both cultural microevolution and macroevolution. However, much of the current literature focuses on cultural microevolution. In this article, we argue that the growing availability of large cross-cultural datasets facilitates the use of computational methods derived from evolutionary biology to answer broad-scale questions about the major transitions in human social organization.”Got that? We have just seen three dozen eggheads pontificate about how culture evolved, and not one of them noticed a logical problem with what they are doing. They readily acknowledge problems within their framework, but not with the framework itself.To understand our critique of this whole project, we recommend you first listen to three podcasts on ID the Future by Nancy Pearcey:Is Reason Reliable? Interview with Nancy Pearcey (ID the Future)Are Humans Really Robots? Nancy Pearson on the “Free Will Illusion” (ID the Future)“Freeloading” Off of Religion: Nancy Pearcey on Materialism and Human Rights (ID the Future)Image credit: Illustra MediaIf you listened, you already hear the giant sucking sound of an implosion. These papers are classic examples of the problem she delineates: evolutionists never apply their theories to themselves! After all, they are humans aren’t they? They are members of a culture, aren’t they? They believe their bodies, brains and cultures originated by Darwin’s natural selection or some extensions of naturalistic evolution, don’t they? OK, then. Nothing they say is about truth. Nothing they say is about reason. Nothing they say is about logic. It’s all about their genes using them like marionettes on genetic strings.To see why this is true, let’s write a satire about the origin of this PNAS series by natural selection. “Here, we review the field of evolutionists writing papers about cultural macroevolution as it pertains to the extension of biology through culture…. Our population is the class of evolutionists who write Darwin-style papers in PNAS…. As culture extends the scope of evolutionary biology in the great apes and dolphins, parallels can be seen in the mumblings of academics developing their cultural traits as it regards vocalizing Darwin quotes under selective pressures to publish or perish, or order to pass on their genes.”Game over.(Visited 836 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Non-violence campaign kicks off

first_imgChildren should be able to grow up and live in a safe environment. (Image: Bongani Nkosi) The safety of women and children is the focus of this year’s 16 Days of Activism campaign, which runs from 25 November until 10 December 2010.The UN-headed drive begins on the International Day of No Violence Against Women and ends on International Human Rights Day.Internationally, the campaign concentrates on crimes committed against women, but in South Africa this has been extended to include children to create awareness of their rights.Origins of the campaignThe 16 Days of Activism campaign originates from the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute sponsored by the Centre for Women’s Global Leadership (CWGL), a women’s human rights group, in 1991. This year is the 20th edition of the campaign.Participants at the institute chose the dates, November 25 and December 10, to symbolically link violence against women and human rights, and to emphasise that such violence is a violation of human rights.Each year the Centre for Women’s Global Leadership develops a theme for the international campaign in consultation with women’s organisations around the world. This year’s theme is Structures of Violence: Defining the Intersections of Militarism and Violence against Women.According to the CWGL: “Militarism is a distinctive way of looking at the world; it influences how we see our neighbours, our families, our public life, and other people in the world. To embrace militarism is to presume that everyone has enemies and that violence is an effective way to solve problems.”The campaign aims to raise awareness around human rights and gender-based violence, strengthen existing structures to work with victims of violence and create safe places for women before violence occurs.Wear a white ribbonThis year marks the 11th anniversary of the campaign in South Africa, with the media launch taking place in Cape Town.It will be led by the Minister of Women, Children and Persons with Disabilities Lulu Xingwana and supported by other ministers, leaders of civil society organisations and additional senior government officials.“We call on faith-based organisations, non-governmental organisations, community-based organisations, civil society organisations and other stakeholders to observe and work on programmes aimed at ending violence against women and children,” the Commission for Gender Equality in South Africa said in a press statement.“We also call upon all interested parties to join us in various provincial programmes as we accelerate our efforts to fight all forms of violence against women and children, in an endeavour to create a society free from gender oppression and inequality,” it continued.South Africans are urged to wear a white ribbon for the duration of the campaign as a symbol of peace and promise never to commit or condone violence against women and children.Another way to support the campaign in South Africa is to join the Cyber Dialogues initiative, through which the public can discuss issues relating to the abuse of women and children, share experiences of these violations and come up with solutions.People can also make donations to the Foundation for Human Rights, which distributes money raised during the campaign to various non-governmental organisations.South African’s are also urged to encourage victims to speak out on their abuse to raise further awareness and help the healing process.last_img read more

From Big Five to Little Five

first_imgVisitors to South Africa are always keen to see the country’s celebrated Big Five – neglecting a wealth of smaller wildlife. To remedy this, some clever people came up with another must-see list, the Little Five: elephant shrew, ant lion, rhinoceros beetle, buffalo weaver and leopard tortoise!There’s much more to South Africa’s wildlife than the Big Five, here’s the Little Five. (Image: Wildes Afrika in Germany)Brand South Africa reporterVisitors to South Africa are always keen to catch a glimpse and a photo of the country’s celebrated Big Five: elephant, lion, rhinoceros, buffalo and leopard.While the big game is magnificent – and includes other giants such as giraffe, hippo, whale and dolphin – there’s much more to South Africa’s wildlife. The country has some of the world’s richest biodiversity hotspots, with remarkable birdlife, abundant buck, small game and bizarre insects.To promote these, some clever people came up with another must-see list: the Little Five. They are (and don’t laugh) the elephant shrew, ant lion, rhinoceros beetle, buffalo weaver and leopard tortoise.Here’s the lowdown on some of Africa’s finest little creatures.Ant lionThe ant lion (Myrmeleontidae) is an odd yet familiar feature of the bushveld, digging conical depressions in dry, soft sand with which to trap its prey – ants. In advanced stages this larvae-like creature has wings and sometimes resembles a dragonfly, although it’s not well-adapted for flight.Buffalo weaverRed-billed buffalo weavers (Bubarlornis niger) are social birds that build their nests in the forked branches of tall trees. They nest in open colonies and are a rather noisy and busy lot. The weavers’ nests can be recognised by their rather bedraggled state, made from coarse grasses and with untidy twig structures.Rhinoceros beetleThe rhinoceros beetle (Scarabaeinae dynastinae) is one of the largest beetles in southern Africa, with horns on its head much like those of its larger namesake. Both males and females are horned, but only the males are known for aggressive behaviour, using the horns to fight rivals. The horns are also used to dig, climb and mate.Leopard tortoiseThe leopard tortoise (Geochelone pardalis) is a striking feature of the bushveld landscape, getting its name from its black and yellow spotted shell. The animal is one of the largest breeds of tortoise in this part of the world; a mature leopard tortoise can weigh over 23 kilograms, with a shell circumference of up to one metre. The males are larger than the females.Younger tortoises have dark brown patterns, while adult shells take on shades of yellow with somewhat smaller spots. Leopard tortoises live in savannah and grassland areas, close to water.Elephant shrewThis tiny insectivore lives in arid lowlands, rocky outcrops and savannah grasslands, getting its name from its elongated snout. Elephant shrews (Elephantulus myurus) are found all over South Africa, and only grow to a length of 250mm, with an average weight of 60 grams. They feed on insects, fruit, seeds and nuts.They in turn are food for snakes and raptors, making them extremely shy and wary. The chances of spotting them are slim indeed, so if you manage to see an elephant shrew before an actual elephant, you can count your safari a real success!The Little Five is based on the “Small 5005” concept developed by South African wildlife author and scientist Rael Loon.
