Authenticating documents for admission may complicate a plaintiff’s ability to prevail at trial. The Second District Court of Appeal has explained that loan modification agreements and various other documents are self-authenticating, thus easing the process of admission.In foreclosure trials, the plaintiff is normally correct about most of the facts: “There is a note.” “The borrower signed a mortgage.” “The borrower breached by failing to make required payments.” “A breach letter was sent.” “The payment history and related documents reflect the amounts due and owing under the terms of the note and mortgage.”Apart from the muddled issue of standing, the key issue in a case is normally focused on whether the servicer’s documentary evidence is admitted by the court. Admissibility involves two questions: Is the document authentic? Is the document admissible? Each question is equally important.Authentication or identification requires that a party present sufficient evidence to support a finding that the matter in question is what its proponent claims. However, documents which are self- authenticating are not subject to this rule. While it has been understood that certain documents, including the note, are “self-authenticating” within the meaning of section 90.902, Florida Statutes, the scope of documents subject to the self-authentication rule has been less clear.In Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. v. Quest Systems, LLC, 2D17-1184 (Fla. 2d DCA Apr. 3, 2019), the court clarified this issue. The court highlighted the fact that the statute provides that all documents “relating to” commercial paper are self-authenticating. Based on this proposition, the court found that a loan modification agreement, being related to the note, was self-authenticating. Other documents that relate to the note may be similarly self-authenticating, removing one of the barriers to admission of the evidence and, thus, judgment in favor of plaintiff.

Pittsburgh running back James Conner (24) plays against the Delaware in the NCAA football game on Saturday, Aug. 30, 2014 in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic)PITTSBURGH (AP) – Paul Chryst doesn’t do hype.If Pittsburgh keeps winning, however, the unassuming third-year head coach knows the Panthers will be unable to avoid it.It’s a notion Chryst can live with. Besides, it beats the alternative. So while he is doing everything he can to downplay his team’s 3-0 start heading into Saturday’s game against scuffling Iowa (2-1) – even bemoaning a rushing attack that ranks fourth in the country behind sophomore James Conner – Chryst is also prepping his program for dealing with the trappings of success.“I think guys when they come, and we talk about it all the time, ‘Why did you come to Pitt?’” Chryst said. “It’s to play in games like we get an opportunity to play in here. You’ve got a chance, if you do stuff, to be recognized.”Forgive Pitt if it’s out of practice. The Panthers haven’t won their first four games since 2000. Find a way to reach that milestone against the Hawkeyes and a solid September has a chance to evolve into something considerably more serious.“I believe we can win our division and go to the ACC championship,” senior safety Ray Vinopal said. “If I didn’t, I wouldn’t be fighting so hard for it. But it’s not what I believe in, it’s what can we achieve. This week would certainly help our outlook.”So would a victory for Iowa, which is still smarting after a late collapse against rival Iowa State last week.The Hawkeyes have been unable to generate much offense under coordinator Greg Davis. At a time when teams are scoring at an unprecedented rate, Iowa is averaging a modest 21.3 points per game, 102nd in the country.Coach Kirk Ferentz shrugged his shoulders when pressed about the inability to get much traction.“Clearly we’re not operating as well as we need to,” he said. “Seventeen points the other day wasn’t enough to win. That’s the bottom line.”Some things to look for as Pitt attempts to build a case as a legitimate contender in the ACC and the Hawkeyes try to avoid entering Big Ten play on a losing streak.Pittsburgh’s Tyler Boyd (23) returns a punt against the Delaware in the NCAA football game on Saturday, Aug. 30, 2014 in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic)CRUISING CONNER: A month ago Chryst talked at length about using Conner as a dual threat at running back and defensive end. Those plans are buried in the back of the playbook. Conner’s 544 yards are a school record through three games and his eight rushing touchdowns lead the country. Iowa is sixth against the run, but has yet to face anyone like Conner.“He’s strong, he’s fast,” Ferentz said of Conner. “He has a good ability to pick holes, see holes. They’re very big and very athletic up front.”ADDITION BY SUBTRACTION: Iowa’s last visit to Heinz Field came in 2008 and ended in a loss that wound up being a turning point for the program. Ferentz chose to go with Jake Christensen over a young Ricky Stanzi at quarterback in the second half, and the Hawkeyes fell 21-20. Iowa started Stanzi the following week, and he led the Hawkeyes to 16 wins in their next 20 games – including an Orange Bowl victory over Georgia Tech following the 2009 season. Iowa also returned the favor in 2011 in Iowa City, rallying from 17 down to beat Pitt 31-27. “We reached our goal that day. It was a good day. It wasn’t easy,” Ferentz said.YINZER FERENTZ: Ferentz attended Upper St. Clair High in suburban Pittsburgh, and his first college job was as a graduate assistant with Pitt in 1980. Ferentz had committed to a second season with the Panthers before Hayden Fry posted an opening for an offensive line coach. Ferentz applied on a lark, got the job and spent the next nine seasons as an assistant in Iowa City. “My only intent was just to interview so I knew how to interview, so when I had to go look for a job the next year, I’d have some clue what I was doing. That was the only reason I came out here. The rest is history,” Ferentz said.STILL SUBBING: While Chad Voytik still has a strong hold on the starting quarterback job, Chryst will continue to insert backup Trey Anderson when he believes Voytik needs a break. Chryst sent Anderson in during the second half last week against Florida International even though Voytik had rallied the Panthers from a 16-0 deficit. “I think there are times when you have to take what the defense gives you,” Chryst said of Voytik. “I thought that he just needed to sit back, see the game, and realize that it’s just a game.”STAYING HUMBLE: Pitt’s start was nearly undone against lowly FIU when the Panthers feel behind by three scores before surging to a 42-25 triumph. The defense considered it a necessary wake-up call they don’t expect to be repeated.“The ball bounces however it’s going to bounce, but we were able to respond and bounce back after a rough start,” defensive tackle Darryl Render said. “This adversity can only help us in the remaining games.”___AP Sports Writer Luke Meredith in Des Moines, Iowa, contributed to this report.

Handed another demoralising defeat by England on a miserable tour, Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni bemoaned the injury-crisis that has hit his side, saying that all his plans fall apart due to the lack of options at his disposal.India went down by seven wickets in the rain-reduced second ODI and Dhoni said the bowling left a lot to be desired given that the batsmen had done a decent job by posting 187 in the 23-overs-a-side game.”The bowling department needs to step up a bit. The strength of our bowlers is not speed but it didn’t swing today. Also the variations in pace were not possible because the outfield was wet and the ball came on to the bat nicely,” said Dhoni after England comfortably overhauled the 188-run target.”Presently it is becoming difficult to maneuver them around with just two bowlers. When the frontline bowlers go for runs, it becomes difficult. I tried Ashwin hoping he could upset their scoring but even he went for runs. The first five overs didn’t work out for us,” he added.”Our fast bowlers are not deceptively quick. They are between the 128-132mph speed. If it is not swinging, it’s difficult and a bit tough on them.”Indians stuck to their policy of playing with seven batters even when it meant that Manoj Tiwary was almost straightaway drafted into the playing eleven literally after stepping out of aircraft.”Our lower order batters can’t score big against this bowling attack. Without six batters it becomes quite difficult to score runs. So if it is a low score, even five bowlers can’t defend it.advertisement”I thought 187 was a good score. But once they got 60 in first five overs and 100 in the first 10, they never really had to take any risk.”Dhoni once again rued the injuries that have had a disastrous effect on his team’s performances.”Injuries have been a big concern. We have lost nine players and almost of them feature in the first eleven.” The injury nightmare, however, wouldn’t extend to young Ajinkya Rahane who batted with a runner during his knock of 54 on Tuesday.”He felt a twist in his leg while turning. It’s a bit of inflammation but as of now, he wouldn’t miss the next game.

OTTAWA – The federal Finance Department has shaved several years of projected deficits from Canada’s long-term financial future following better-than-expected economic growth in 2017 — though many more years of deficits remain.Finance officials predicted in a report released Friday that barring any policy changes, the federal government could be on track to run annual shortfalls until 2045-46, compared to projections last year that deficits would run to 2050-51.If such a scenario played out, the deficit would reach an annual high of $24.8 billion around 2030-31 before beginning to fall.By 2040-41, the federal debt would top out at around $1.08 trillion before starting to fall, as compared to last year’s prediction that it would reach $1.55 trillion by 2050-51.The improvement is attributed to an overall boost in the fiscal outlook, particularly in the medium term, which comes after the Canadian economy mounted a surprise resurgence over the past 12 months.While long-term predictions contain considerable uncertainty, Finance Minister Bill Morneau nonetheless said the projections prove the Liberal government’s plan is bearing fruit.“We have an ambitious plan to grow Canada’s economy by investing in people, growing the middle class and helping those working hard to join it,” Morneau said in a statement Friday. “Our plan is working.”The Liberals won the 2015 election on a plan to spur economic growth by running annual deficits of no more than $10 billion over the first couple years to pay for infrastructure investments before balancing the books in 2019-20.But they abandoned those so-called “fiscal anchors” as the economy took a beating from collapsing oil prices in 2016, and have instead focused on lowering the debt-to-GDP ratio, which is a measure of Ottawa’s debt burden.The Liberals have not set a timeline for a return to balance.The Opposition Conservatives wasted no time latching onto Friday’s report to further their argument that the Liberals are leaving a legacy of debt.“Justin Trudeau will be a 74-year-old man relaxing on a private island before the budget is balanced,” Conservative finance critic Pierre Poilievre said in a statement.“He is leaving the next generation with the bill for his reckless spending and the only way he can pay that bill is by raising taxes.”The Finance report emphasized investments in skills and technology as it warned that Canada’s aging population will contribute less to the economy and instead become a drain on public finances in the coming years.That warning largely explained why the GDP was projected to see slower growth between 2023-2055 than in previous decades, going back to 1950.“It is therefore imperative to continue to grow the economy by investing in the middle class and in the skills and technology that will make Canada more productive, competitive and fair,” the report read.“In particular, improving the economic participation of groups traditionally under-represented in the labour market, including women, Indigenous people, older workers, newcomers and persons with disabilities, is key to Canada’s long-term fiscal and economic performance.”— Follow @leeberthiaume on Twitter.
In the first head-to-head exhibition between the two biggest names in golf, Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods, McIlroy managed to shoot a 5-under 67 to defeat Woods by one stroke in an 18-hole match on Monday in Zhengzhou, China.The match labeled as “Duel at Jinsha Lake,” McIlroy jumped out to an early lead with two birdies on the first three holes, which proved to be clutch down the stretch to hold off Woods, who finished with a 68.Despite McIlroy taking an early lead, Woods made the competition interesting for the fans in China coming down the front nine after falling two strokes behind. The 14-time major winner hit a flawless chip shot from the fairway on the par-3 12th hole that hit the pin and dropped in for birdie, drawing him within one stroke of the current No. 1 player in the world.But on the next hole Woods had to settle for a bogey after missing a long put, while McIlroy nailed a 7-footer for par.Woods would go on to birdie on the 14th hole to pull within one, but missed his chance to even the score on the 18th when he landed his approach shot in the bunker. Woods finished with the duel with six birdies and two bogeys.For both player this was a different experience.“This is certainly not like most Mondays,” Woods said. “To have this many people come out and watch us play golf in an exhibition was something special. This doesn’t happen.”McIlroy and Woods had to make the long travel to Zhengzhou after competing elsewhere on Sunday. McIlroy traveled from Shanghai, where he competed in the European Tour’s BMW Masters and finished second behind Peter Hanson. Woods traveled from Malaysia after finishing fourth in the PGA Tour’s CIMB Classic.The win for McIlroy was a nice consolation prize after being defeated on Sunday.“It’s been a nice distraction to not dwell on what happened yesterday,” he said. “I let a great chance to win a golf tournament slip through my fingers. Coming to do something like this today has definitely made it a little easier to deal with.”Woods even hinted at the idea of having matches with McIlroy more often to create a rivalry at the game such as the ones between Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant that have made the NBA more exciting in recent years.“If you look at the history of the game, it’s not like other sports where the guys play against each other all the time. Jack (Nicklaus) and Arnold (Palmer) didn’t go at it that often,” Woods said. “But you know what, if we can do this for the next 10, 15 years, then certainly we can have that type of rivalry.”The rivalry is what 14-year-old Ji Tianxin, who is student and golfer on occasion, came to witness, as she watched her favorite player McIlroy beat Woods.“I don’t usually get this chance to watch the best players,” she said, watching the players putt on the fourth hole. “I think the two are both stars, so I really wanted to see them.”Woods does not see this being his last match against McIlroy or any other competitor because matches like these intensify and promote the game of golf.“I think having matches like this to promote the game of golf is what it’s all about,” Woods said. “We’re trying to promote the game of golf in this region, and it’s come a long way since my first time here 11 years ago.”
2016681.91 201730–6–1.70 SeasonNat’l RankRush EPA/Game 201633–6–1.36 201528–5–1.39 Before Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa became a household name in last season’s national title game, the Georgia Bulldogs had a 13-0 lead and were 30 minutes away from the program’s first championship in nearly 40 years. To start the second half, Nick Saban plugged in the freshman quarterback from Hawaii, and Tagovailoa rallied the Crimson Tide to an overtime victory, adding to the team’s already overflowing trophy case.Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs retreated with their tails tucked between their legs.This weekend’s SEC title game, then, represents the rematch. And once again, Tagovailoa and the Crimson Tide stand in Georgia’s way.It’s ridiculous to think there’s a blueprint for beating Alabama when they’ve looked so dominant, outscoring opponents 588 to 165 this season. But there are a few areas where Georgia may have an advantage.Of course, Georgia doesn’t want to get baited into a shootout with arguably the nation’s best offense. Of course, limiting possessions and muddying up the game are a more optimal approach. Of course, Tagovailoa should be kept off the field as much as possible.All of this starts with running the ball. Georgia’s expected points added per game on running plays during seasons under Kirby Smart 201121–5–1.39 Alabama is vulnerable on the groundBig runs given up by the Crimson Tide defense and yards given up after first contact on a running plays each year (through 12 games) since 2011 Opponents are running through Alabama tacklers like never before, too. This season, the Tide has allowed 2.46 yards after contact per carry, which is the worst performance for Alabama through the first 12 games of a season since 2011, the earliest year for which data is available. Of note: Only Memphis has gained more yards after first contact this year than Georgia.Of course, Tagovailoa is the closest thing to a cheat code in college football this season and could render these potential advantages for Georgia moot. The sophomore has racked up more passing touchdowns in the first half of games (27) than all but 21 schools1Excluding Alabama. have scored over the entire season. But this is an elite Georgia defense that could be Tagovailoa’s biggest test this season.The ultimate irony would be if a quarterback change by Smart decided the outcome of Saturday’s game. Jake Fromm has capably commanded the Georgia offense this season and has been sensational since his tepid showing during the team’s lone loss, which came against LSU. But Justin Fields, one of the most sought-after recruits from the 2018 class, has an uncanny athleticism that adds another potential threat to an already devastating offense. At receiver — again, the irony — Riley Ridley (brother of former Alabama star Calvin Ridley, who scored a touchdown in last season’s title game) has elevated his game this season. Fromm and Fields will look to Ridley, the team leader in receiving touchdowns, to take the top off the Alabama defense.If the game comes down to the wire, Georgia should be the more confident team. Long the Achilles’ heel of Saban-led teams, special teams could be what holds Alabama back. Kicker Joseph Bulovas has missed four of 16 field-goal attempts and has botched five extra points. And while the Crimson Tide ranks in the top two in offensive and defensive efficiency, it ranks a dismal 87th in special teams efficiency. “It’s not really acceptable,” Saban said earlier this month.Conversely, Rodrigo Blankenship, the bespectacled Georgia sensation, has been among college football’s most accurate kickers, nailing 19 of his 22 attempts and all 58 of his extra points. Georgia’s special teams rank far better than Alabama’s, landing at No. 38 in efficiency.It speaks to the sheer dominance of Alabama that Las Vegas sportsbooks installed the Crimson Tide as double-digit favorites against Georgia. But this is a dangerous underdog with all the trappings of a dominant squad. Some metrics consider the Bulldogs among the two best teams nationally. They won’t be short on motivation, if nothing else, as they seek to avenge last season’s loss when the lights were brightest.Check out our latest college football predictions. Season10+ yards gained20+ yards gainedYDS. After 1st Contact/Rush Perhaps the most underappreciated storyline in the SEC can be found in Athens. Running backs Sony Michel and Nick Chubb were selected in the first two rounds of this year’s NFL draft, and Georgia’s run game improved.This season, the two-headed monster of Elijah Holyfield and D’Andre Swift has run buckshot through the SEC. Each will likely eclipse the 1,000-yard mark. Largely behind the two, the Bulldogs have over their last four games rushed for 1,345 yards, more than nine teams have accumulated all season. Georgia has the conference’s top rushing attack, gashing opposing defenses for 259.8 yards per contest on 6.3 yards per attempt, and leads the conference in total rushes of 10-plus yards (102) and 20-plus yards (35).Now, it seems silly to nitpick an Alabama defense that has allowed only six rushing touchdowns all season and ranks in the top 15 in both rushing yards allowed per contest (114.0) and rushing yards allowed per carry (3.3) … but we’re going to do it anyway. If Alabama’s ultra-young defense has had difficulty with anything, it’s mitigating explosive plays. Over 12 games this season, the Crimson Tide has allowed 13 carries of 20-plus yards, tied with five teams for 35th-fewest in the nation. On top of that, the Tide defense has also allowed 38 carries of 10 or more yards. Both numbers are the most Alabama has allowed through 12 games since 2011: 201433–7–2.13 2018107.85 Yards after contact data is unavailable before 2011.Source: Espn Stats & Information Group Source: Espn Stats & Information Group 201223–6–1.47 201330–5–1.64 201838–13–2.46 2017127.22 Number of Opponent Rushing Plays with …
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, September 22, 2017 – Nassau – When the starting gun sounds at the highly-anticipated Potcakeman Triathlon Saturday, one competitor will already be a winner. She’s Viviane Proffitt, teacher, wife, mother and animal lover who walked away with the Pet Food Institute’s pre-race prize, full body running gear and her entry fee paid.“This is the second year that the Pet Food Institute (PFI) has held an essay contest ahead of the great event, the Potcakeman Triathlon, and when we saw Viviane’s entry posted on Potcakeman Triathlon’s page, we knew instantly we had a winner,” said PFI representative Sandra Kemp. “How could anyone top a woman who has four dogs, including two rescue dogs and writes, ‘There is nothing like coming home to wagging tails, waiting for you to take them out for a walk, fun or cycle!’”As it turned out, there was even more reason to applaud Proffitt. Along with four dogs, she has three hamsters, two guinea pigs, a husband and three children. And she rescues tadpoles.Proffitt says she inherited her love for animals. “My mother is an animal fanatic,” said Proffitt, who teaches Spanish at the primary school level. “We lived in St. Martin and there was an area called the Lowlands where people would drop their stray animals. Mom would take them in. At one time we had 24 dogs.”Though this will be the first time Proffitt will don a PFI dri-fit running suit, it won’t be her first time entering the race. She competed for the first time last year in the swim, cycle, run test of human endurance and won her age category.This is the third year PFI has helped to sponsor the event organized by the non-profit organization BAARK (Bahamas Alliance for Animal Rights and Kindness). Funds raised go toward the spay/neuter and education programs throughout The Bahamas. The organization has spearheaded efforts with veterinarians and other volunteers assisting in more than 7,000 sterilizations since its founding in 2010, more than 1,000 so far this year.“PFI is proud to support efforts that bring awareness to the importance of the proper feeding and care of domestic pets,” said Kemp. “The problem of stray dogs is not unique to The Bahamas. Unfortunately, it is a challenge throughout the region and one of the reasons that the Pet Food Institute’s work is so important.”Hundreds are expected to turn out to watch, volunteer or participate in the Potcakeman Triathlon set to start at 7:30 am at Jaws Beach. Events range from a splash ‘n dash for little tykes to Olympic distance race for serious athletes. There is even a ‘puppy tri’ for four-legged participants.“This is probably going to be the most competitive series of races to date,” said race director Sarah Kennedy. “We have competitors traveling from the USA and Canada.”The Pet Food Institute-Caribbean is a non-profit organisation that promotes initiatives to advance pet nutrition and the overall quality of pet food in The Bahamas, Trinidad & Tobago, Turks and Caicos, and Jamaica.
