Spicerhaart is a very special business,” says Lark.He joined to head up the company’s Just Mortgages broker division in Colchester, Essex, which distributes mortgage products both direct to other agents but also through the company’s branch network. It has 200 employees and was established in 2012, growing to be one of the stars of the Spicerhaart group.As we reported last month, he has overseen the Welsh pilot of a new online service at Just Mortgages that offers both its own and competing estate agents a ‘no ties’ mortgage broker hub, and also launched a service for Prime London agents.Up the ranks“He’s roared up our ranks into our most senior role and now responsible for delivering our five-year plan,” says CEO Paul Smith (top, left).“Congratulations and I know you’ll make the role a roaring success; just a shame you’re a gooner!”.Lark is not the only recent internal promotion.

Survey: CBD Use Among Horse Owners in Canada

first_img We’ll send you our regular newsletter and include you in our monthly giveaways. PLUS, you’ll receive our exclusive Rider Fitness digital edition with 15 exercises for more effective riding. Subscribe to the Horse Sport newsletter and get an exclusive bonus digital edition! SIGN UP Email* Horse Sport Enews Dawn Ianson, a Canadian student living on Vancouver Island who is doing her Masters out of the University of Edinburgh, invites horse owners to take part in a survey about cannabinoids (CBDs) in relation to use in their horses.“Vets cannot prescribe cannabinoids [the non-psychoactive derivative of the Cannabis plant] and they are being used and marketed throughout the country with limited scientific evidence of their effectiveness,” notes Ianson. “The Canadian Government still has them listed as a schedule 2 controlled substance, making research very difficult. There needs to be a greater awareness on the limitation and the current equine-related studies.”The study, entitled Cannabidiol (CBD) Use Amongst Horse Owners in Canada has been approved by the Human Ethics Research Committee, R(D)SVS, University of Edinburgh. Dr. McBride is a professor at the Aberystwyth University and supervisor of MSc Graduate student Dawn Ianson at the University of Edinburgh The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies. Together they are trying to understand the prevalence of, and outcome satisfaction of, CBD use in the Canadian equine community and to understand if it is being used as a primary or alternate therapeutic option for either physiological or psychological conditions in horses.All horse owners who live in Canada who are 18 years or older are invited to take part. You will be asked to complete a series of questions as honestly as possible and there are no ‘right or wrong’ answers. The questionnaire should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and can be accessed HERE.(Link to French language version HERE) Tags: CBD, University of Edinburgh, cannabinoids, More from News:MARS Bromont CCI Announces Requirements For US-Based RidersThe first set of requirements to allow American athletes and support teams to enter Canada for the June 2-6 competition have been released.Canadian Eventer Jessica Phoenix Reaches the 100 CCI4*-S MarkPhoenix achieved the milestone while riding Pavarotti at the inaugural 2021 CCI4*-S at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event.Tribunal Satisfied That Kocher Made Prolonged Use of Electric SpursAs well as horse abuse, the US rider is found to have brought the sport into disrepute and committed criminal acts under Swiss law.Washington International Horse Show Returns to TryonTIEC will again provide the venue for the WIHS Oct. 26-31 with a full schedule of hunter, jumper and equitation classes.last_img read more

USS Theodore Roosevelt Refuels at Sea after Four Years

A number of Sailors were sent to other ships to receive more extensive training.Boatswain’s Mate Seaman Henry Cole said Sailors were sent on temporary assigned duties (TAD) to USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) and USS George H. W. Bush (CVN 77) to learn how to properly execute an UNREP. “We all have put in a lot of training for it and to see it come together is great,” said Boatswain’s Mate 3rd Class Colton Miles.The UNREP was a good opportunity for TR Sailors with limited sea time to gauge their skills. “I am excited to be a part of Theodore Roosevelt’s first replenishment [in over four years],” said Cole. “I felt like the replenishment went well and I am glad to be doing my job during it.”“We can always get better as we go on,” said Miles. “This was many Sailors’ first UNREP and what we didn’t do right the first time, we will get right the next time.”[mappress]Press Release, September 23, 2013; Image: US Navy View post tag: Theodore View post tag: Navy View post tag: four September 23, 2013 View post tag: Refuelslast_img read more

Banks introduces bill to penalize people caught looting, vandalizing while protesting

first_imgIndianaLocalNews WhatsApp WhatsApp Facebook By Network Indiana – August 30, 2020 4 541 Banks introduces bill to penalize people caught looting, vandalizing while protesting Google+ Pinterest Google+ Pinterest Previous articleOne person recovering after shooting on Huey Street in South BendNext articleBall State University students put on notice about ignoring COVID-19 safety measures Network Indiana Twitter (Photo supplied/Jim Banks for Congress) People caught rioting would have to pay for the cost of federal policing and would not be able to get federal unemployment, if a bill introduced by Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.), passes the U.S. House, the Senate and becomes law.It’s called the “Support Peaceful Protest Act”, and penalizes people who are caught committing acts of violence, looting, or vandalism.Banks said in an interview Friday that he posted a picture on his Twitter account of a Ft. Wayne couple, which he describes as leaders in the community, who were at the White House to hear Pres. Trump speak, being accosted by a mob as they left.“The photo of them leaving…has gone viral on the internet,” he said. “As they left the angry mob got in their face. A violent mobster with both middle fingers in this woman’s face, trying to incite them.”Banks said the couple kept on walking.“Antifa thugs are descending on suffering communities, disrupting peaceful protests and leaving violence, looting and vandalism in their wake. They turned Milwaukee, Seattle and Portland into warzones, and now they’re moving the chaos to Kenosha, Wisconsin. Who knows which community is next?” said Banks.“Due to enhanced federal benefits, taxpayers are giving wages to jobless rioters that are destroying our communities. We need to cut them off from their funding and make them feel the full financial consequences of their actions.”Banks said anyone who is convicted of rioting would have to remit payment for the hours of federal police who protect government sites in DC and all over the country.He said he supports peaceful protests, but believes that the people who are not protesting, but are rioting, are largely unemployed.“Many of these people are not working. They have the time to show up every day at some of these violent protests like in Washington, D.C. and they’re getting $600 a week of unemployment to do it, and that’s got to stop.” Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
