It will fund Community Development Finance Institutions (CDFIs), and aims to meet some of their capital needs, build a better understanding of their lending, and to test models of funding for CDFIs to attract other socially motivated investors.The Facility will initially invest in up to five CDFIs across the UK, which will be partners involved in developing it, with the intention of expanding its reach over time. Over the next three years, Big Society Capital hopes to raise at least a further £30 million through socially motivated investors alongside itself.Rebecca McCartney, Investment Associate at Big Society Capital Social Investment Scotland, said:“Big Society Capital sees improving lives in disadvantaged communities as one of its core aims, and small businesses can play a vital role in this. The CDFI sector has already achieved a great deal, and it has even more potential to meet the need of small businesses in the communities they serve. Together with our partners, we believe we can realise this potential, principally through our capital but also building knowledge and convening stakeholders.”Big Society Capital has also commissioned the Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research at Sheffield Hallam University to evaluate the Facility over its duration and provide a more robust evidence base for CDFI lending.

A new study out of Rice University and the University of California at Davis that looks ahead 40 years at farming and climate change and draws some very specific conclusions needs to go back to the research table, according to the National Corn Growers Association.“At a time when meteorologists struggle to tell you what the weekend will be like, it’s odd to see a report that tries to so specifically pinpoint the weather 40 years from now,” said NCGA President Pam Johnson. “But that’s only one of the problems we have with this very problematic study.”The report, published in the American Chemical Society journal Environmental Science and Technology, states that the yield of corn grown for ethanol in the United States would be reduced by an average of 7 percent over the next four decades, and the amount of irrigation needed for the corn would increase by 9 percent. Among its other flaws, Johnson noted:The news release that accompanies the report, which looks only at corn grown for ethanol, clearly states the bias of the authors, who “have long questioned the United States’ support of biofuels as a means to cut vehicle emissions,” the release said. It’s no wonder, then, that the report looks ahead a full four decades to criticize an ethanol policy, the Renewable Fuel Standard, which only cover renewable fuels for the next nine years.The report ignores any possible advances in technology to improve corn growing, such as new agronomic practices or technology. “Looking back 40 years, corn farming was so different in 1973 than it is today, and it’s a difference that could not have been predicted back then,” Johnson noted. “The fact of the matter is, it’s not only naive to assume that corn yield will not increase as it has been, but our current average yield is already sufficient to produce the five billion bushels needed to meet the full conventional RFS volumes.”Farmers have been successfully dealing with climate change on this continent for 2,000 years and have shown remarkable resilience and adaptation, Johnson said. Last year, even with a significant drought, they brought in the eighth largest crop ever and saw a significant yield increase compared to the last drought year. This shows that farming practices and tools will change to respond to changing conditions. Two examples offered by Johnson: Since 1980, corn farmers have reduced per-bushel greenhouse gas emissions by 36 percent – and irrigated water use by 53 percent.“President Eisenhower once said that farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you’re a thousand miles from the corn field,” Johnson noted. “We encourage academics to get out of their ivory towers and learn what farmers are really doing, instead of simulating information that is basically useless.”Source: NCGA Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jun 4, 2013 Previous articleFarm Bill Process Resumes, Passage in DoubtNext articleWet Fields Back in some Parts of Indiana Andy Eubank Corn Growers Question Study on Climate and Corn Yield Home Energy Corn Growers Question Study on Climate and Corn Yield Facebook Twitter SHARE

The officials say there are abundant opportunities for farm trade between the United States and European Union. They say those opportunities are there despite European insistence on keeping agriculture out of free trade discussions. European officials excluded farm goods to streamline the negotiations and concentrate on vehicles and industrial products.There are issues that the EU and U.S. have to work on, including geographic indicators for dairy products and the approval of genetically modified crops. However, European leaders say there will continue to be opportunities for U.S. products in Europe, including soybeans, biofuels, and other products, even without agriculture in the free trade negotiations. Officials speaking at the Farm Bureau convention say the perception that the European market is closed is “misleading,” and it’s a big market of 500 million people that imports a lot of food. The U.S. and Europe have recently worked through several key food safety issues on products like almonds and Florida oranges.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter

K.S.A. §60-2415(a) states, “If the court finds the [sale] regular and in conformity with law and equity, it shall confirm the same.” That statute goes on to set out that, under the courts’ equitable powers, the only basis a court may use to deny a confirmation of sale is finding a bid “substantially inadequate.” While that term is not specifically defined in, we know that a sale for the total debt owed (i.e., “judgment, taxes, interest, and costs”) “shall be deemed adequate.” K.S.A. §60-2415(b).In two recent situations, the Court of Appeals reviewed what appears to be a common practice in many jurisdictions where the Motion and Order for Confirmation of Sheriff’s Sale are submitted, and sometimes even entered, simultaneously. The defendant-borrower in JPMorgan Chase Bank, Nat’l Ass’n v. Taylor, 417 P.3d 272 (Kan. Ct. App. 2018) objected to the district court confirming the sheriff’s sale the same day the Motion to Confirm Sheriff’s Sale was filed without notifying her of the Order to Confirm Sheriff’s Sale ever having been filed. Following judgment, Chase purchased the property at the sale for the full judgment amount and shortly thereafter, filed its confirmation pleadings. The defendant-borrower was sent a copy of the Motion to Confirm Sheriff’s Sale and eleven days later, she objected to the same, alleging that by not bidding the fair market value of the property, Chase was “cheating her out of equity. Despite the objection, however, the district court in Taylor entered the order confirming the sheriff’s sale the same day the motion was filed and when the defendant-borrower learned of this, she appealed claiming a violation of her due process rights for failure of the district court to hear and consider her objection. The Court of Appeals, relying upon Kan. Sup. Ct. Rule 133, found that because the objection to the Motion for Confirmation of Sheriff’s Sale was filed eleven days after the motion, it was untimely and even though the Order confirming sale was entered prematurely, there was no error by the district court in failing to consider an untimely objection. Of particular note in this matter is that despite the full-debt bid and the statute dictating that the sale shall be deemed adequate, the Court of Appeals seems to go out of its way to discourage this type of practice and stating that, “any procedure adopted by a district court that allows for automatic approval of a sheriff’s sale without at least waiting to see if someone files an objection is subject to a later ruling that it is void as a violation of due process.” Taylor at 8-9.Reverse Mortg. Sols., Inc. v. Goldwyn, 2018 Kan. App. LEXIS 36 (Ct. App. July 6, 2018) decided just earlier this month, considered a number of interesting elements related to a Sheriff’s Sale, including the procedure for confirming the sale. This case involved a foreclosure of a reverse mortgage and subsequent in rem judgment against the borrower’s heir which then resulted in Reverse Mortgage Solutions purchasing the property at sheriff’s sale at a price less than the full-debt owed. Similarly, the district court granted the motion requesting confirmation of the sheriff’s sale the same day it was filed. And, similarly, after an appeal claiming the order confirming sheriff’s sale was entered prematurely, the Court in Goldwyn, as in Taylor, agreed that the district court should have allowed time for any opposing parties to respond to the motion.However, the thrust of the defendant-borrower’s argument was that because the sale was not for the fair market value of the property, the sale should be deemed substantially inadequate. The Court correctly noted that even if that argument were true, the failure to bid fair market value does not necessarily mean the sale is substantially inadequate. The reliance on this argument allowed the Court to find that the premature entry of the order was harmless error and the confirmation of sale was upheld. While neither of these cases ultimately resulted in unconfirmed sales, district courts in Kansas appear to be taking note of the scrutiny the Court of Appeals has been giving the confirmation of sheriff’s sale and at least one district has recently begun requiring hearings on all Motions to Confirm Sheriff’s Sale regardless of whether the sale was for the total debt or there is no deficiency judgment.
