McIntosh has been the MP for Thirsk & Malton, North Yorkshire, since 1997, and was previously an MEP.She commented, “Many have asked me to stand locally in some capacity. I am honoured but my place is within the party and I would never put personal ambition ahead of the best interests of the country, which can only be served by another Government led by David Cameron.“To all those who have so loyally supported me and who have expressed disillusionment and a sense of being disenfranchised, I urge them to put aside their disappointment and ask them to consider that the alternative would not be good for the constituency, the Conservative Party or, indeed, the country.”A statement from the local party said, “The Association acknowledges the work that Anne McIntosh has done in the last five years and wishes her well in the future.”Conservatives in the Thirsk & Malton constituency last year chose estate agent, Kevin Hollinrake, as their prospective candidate for the next General Election.Mr Hollinrake was selected to fight the marginal West Yorkshire seat of Dewsbury in 2007, but withdrew for business reasons a year later.Bookmaker odds on Mr Hollinrake winning the seat for Thirsk & Malton are now as short as 1/33. In contrast, his nearest rival, Toby Horton of UKIP, is 25/1 to be elected on 7th May.Mr Hollinrake (right), from Easingwold, North Yorkshire, said he was delighted to have been selected. He commented, “It’s a lifetime ambition. My parents always encouraged us to take an interest in politics and current affairs and to share our opinions around the dining room table. I did not want to be a career politician, I first wanted to prove that I could be successful in business and think that gives me the credibility and experience to be able to help to improve things at a local and national level.”Look out for Kevin Hollinrake’s guest column in the May issue of The Negotiator magazine – out soon.May elections Kevin Hollinrake Hunters March 25, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Premier Foods’ branded cakes sales fell in the last quarter of 2016 as mince pies volumes shifted from Mr Kipling to own-label products.The company reported a 3.4% year- on-year decline in sales of branded products in its Sweet Treats division in the 13 weeks to 31 December 2016. Non-branded sales increased 10.3%, however, contributing to total division sales rising 1% in the quarter.Although the total number of mince pies sold by Premier rose 17% year on year, some volume manufactured by the business switched from Mr Kipling to non-branded sales.“This resulted in softer branded sales, offset by a very strong performance across the non-branded range,” reported the company.Premier also revealed it was in discussions with Mondelēz International about extending its long-standing licence for the Cadbury brand, adding these talks were “making good progress”.News of the discussions comes six months after Mondelēz acquired the global licence for Cadbury-branded biscuits from Burton’s Biscuit Company, which had produced Cadbury biscuits under licence.“Cadbury cake continued its strong momentum from the first half of the year, with sales and market share both growing,” reported Premier in a trading statement today (18 January). “The group continues to enjoy an excellent working relationship with Mondelēz.”Premier will be extending its Cadbury line-up this year with a Cadbury cake Choc Tarts range in Caramel, Crunchie and Flake flavour variants.Cadbury and Mr Kipling both enjoyed a strong performance in the Australian market during the period, said Premier, contributing to the ninth consecutive quarter of growth for its international business.Premier last week announced it was seeking higher prices from retailers following ingredients cost increases and weakness in sterling. In today’s trading update, the company said it was experiencing cost hikes in commodities including sugar, chocolate, dairy, wheat and palm oil.“We take a blended approach to managing these cost increases, managing our own efficiencies, adjusting promotional mechanics and formats where appropriate and, finally, looking at limited price increases where these cannot be avoided,” it stated. “We are working collaboratively with customers to agree these changes and are confident appropriate settlements will be reached, although this is taking longer than originally foreseen.”Premier total group sales – including household brands such as Bisto and Loyd Grossman – were down 1% year on year to £251.4m. Branded sales were down 3.8%, while non-branded sales rose 11.6%. Bisto, Oxo, Loyd Grossman, Ambrosia and Batchelors all delivered volume and value market share gains in the quarter, it reported.

Last month, I attended the Young Harris College-University of Georgia Beekeeping Institute. While I am not a beekeeper, I am also not a novice to beekeeping. In my role as a UGA Cooperative Extension county agent, I have a number of friends in various bee clubs. I even have two hives that a friend keeps at my house.In my two days at the institute, I learned that there was so much more to these amazing creatures than I ever realized. The week of June 17-23 is National Pollinator Week, and I thought this would be an ideal time to share some of my newfound bee knowledge.Bees have three body segments: head, thorax and abdomen. The head has five eyes; there are two on the side and three small eyes that look like dots on the top of the head. These three eyes are more like light sensors so the bee knows which way is up. These light-sensing eyes can get bees into trouble in snowy areas. They sometimes exit the hive when snow is on the ground, and the reflected light from the ground is brighter than the sky, so bees fly upside down before crashing into the snow.The thorax, the bee’s power center, is the location of the bee’s four wings and the six legs. There are many bee look-alikes in the insect world. One way to distinguish a bee from a fly is the bee’s four wings. Flies only have two wings. The abdomen houses the internal organs, and the stinger is located at the base of the abdomen. The abdomen has seven segments and contains eight wax-producing glands. Wax is secreted in liquid form through segments four through seven until it cools and hardens. After it hardens, the hive workers collect it and form the hive’s cells. These wax scales are 3 mm across and 1 mm thick. It takes about 1,100 scales to make 1 gram of wax.Bees, like butterflies and moths, go through a complete metamorphosis, which includes egg, larva, pupa and adult life stages. With honeybees, what interested me was the time it takes them to progress from egg to adult. A queen completes this in as little as 16 days, whereas a worker, the female sister, takes 21 days. A drone, the male brother of the queen, takes 24 days. The difference is based on survival. When a colony needs to replace a queen, they must replace her fast so egg-laying can continue.It takes only three days for an egg to develop into a larva. A bee larva looks like a small grub or maggot. It is white in color, nestled into a cell and has no legs or eyes. During this stage it increases 900 times in weight. But how can it grow this fast, molting its skin six times, if it is blind and immobile? The worker bees feed these voracious little eaters, making approximately 1,300 visits each day to feed them and clean their cells.After bees become adults, they have various roles in the hive. While we may think they leave the cells and start flying to flowers, only the oldest adults at the end of their lives can be seen in gardens. The bees begin their adulthood as homebodies, working on important jobs like cleaning and capping cells, basically acting as the hive’s sanitation department. After they graduate from these tasks, they move up to brood tending, comb building, grooming and food handling. It is not until about day 15-20 of their adult life that they begin outdoor tasks, like ventilating and guarding the entrance to the hive. An adult bee’s first foraging flight is usually not until about day 20. In the summer, most bees only live for 35 days. Foraging flights are dangerous business given all the hazards: lawnmowers, windshields, birds, spiders and other predators. It makes sense that this is a task for the older, disposable bees.For more information on pollinators, visit extension.uga.edu/topic-areas/timely-topics/pollinators.

Branch foot traffic has significantly declined as web-based banking continues to rise. However, by no means is the brick and mortar office obsolete. Better yet, it is evolving. It’s reducing staff and space, relying on technology and self-service, and shifting towards a relationship selling approach to maximize opportunity within each visit. Like evolution in the animal kingdom, the branch is undergoing the changes it needs to adapt to its modern surroundings. So much so, that some branches have added something extra to get a “leg up” on the competition—wheels.Though mobile branches have been around since the early 90s, they were mostly utilized during disaster relief efforts back then. Today, the decreasing cost of technology and evolving banking habits are opening the door for more mobile branch opportunities. John Baker, CEO of mobile branch manufacturing pioneer MBF Industries, claims that mobile branch sales have increased at least 10-15% year-over-year for the past three to five years. “The decrease in communication costs such as internet and telephone have fueled the need for mobile ATMs and branches,” said Baker. “We expect major growth for years to come as the industry continues to see the cost-effective benefits of the mobile branch.”Baker states that there are many applications for a mobile branch, ranging from “community events, auto dealership loan processing, disaster relief, and serving under-sized markets that can’t support a full branch.” However, today’s most popular use is as a branch replacement during the construction or remodeling of brick and mortar locations. A mobile branch can be driven to the parking lot of the branch under construction. While parked, it provides the community the same in-branch services with the same staff as the physical branch while the construction is being completed, eliminating branch downtime. Codigo’s Branch Transformation report revealed that 2 out of 5 institutions were adding locations through 2014-2015, and that an additional 25% were remodeling existing locations, creating a significant opportunity for institutions to leverage mobile branches.There’s not much a brick and mortar location can do that a mobile branch can’t. MBF Industries has manufactured mobile branches that range from strictly ATMs to full-service banking, Baker claims. Lately, they’ve received more elaborate requests from clients. “They want to install large digital signage for advertising, as well as self-service kiosks to reduce paper clutter and provide more interactivity— just like in the brick and mortar locations.”Much like the people it serves, the branch has gone mobile. It has grown legs and the ability to go to the customer, instead of waiting for customers to visit. With the cost of technology decreasing, these mobile branches are becoming more and more cost-effective for institutions of all shapes and sizes. It will not be long before we see more of them serving our communities as a widely accepted way to bank. 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Matt Deaton Matt Deaton is the Marketing Manager at Codigo, a Louisville.
