Comparison of tenant deposit schemes in England and Wales

In England and Wales there are three government-approved tenancy deposit schemes (Scotland and Northern Ireland have different schemes). They are Deposit Protection Service (DPS) MyDeposits  Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) Insured vs. custodial scheme Insured scheme: the landlord/agent can hold the tenancy deposits during the term of the tenancy. They need to pay a fee to the deposit scheme to register the deposit. At the end of tenancy, if the tenant raises a dispute, they must transfer the disputed amount to the deposit scheme until the matter is resolved by a free dispute resolution service provided by the scheme or a court.  Custodial scheme: the scheme holds the deposit for the duration of the tenancy. Custodial Schemes is free of charge for the landlord/agent. At the end of tenancy, both parties agree before the deposit can be released to the tenant/landlord. If there is a dispute, the release of deposit will be based on the decision of the free dispute resolution service provided b

The Battlefield
I am Kyle, I had to join the war since I'm 19. Mother says that I will be okay if I believe in myself. I have brown hair, blue eyes and some weird ''X'' on my stomach. I don't know what this means... The first day of training seemed like hell, I was trained harshly and taught to hold a gun. It was scary, this was the first time I ever thought about war. I never thought war would come to our country... France. The person who trained me was called Captain Francis. I was the shakiest trooper and I got yelled at for not concentrating on aiming. I saw horses and some thoroughbreds, stallions and battle equipment. The training went on and on, the Field Marshal always ordered people around harshly. More about me... I was just a 19 year old boy, living peacefully in a farm with my Mother, Father and my little brother. I would include my sheepdog as my family since he is so close to me, he's called Patch. Captain Francis was a kind man, he was really nice to me and trained me properly. It was summertime and it was really hot. Every night i heard gunshots in the silent black sky. I never liked sleeping at the troopers' wooden hut, I felt like the wood would break and then I and all the troopers would fall to the ground.

 It was getting closer to the time when I go to battle. And I was trained hard by Captain Francis.

When I marched into the battlefield I saw grey, ashy grass and broken wood. You could tell that there was already another fight that was arranged here. The Germans lifted their guns and we charged at them while troopers rode on horses. I lifted my gun and aimed at a Corporal? Then shot.

The bangs and moans of pain lay in my ears and a feeling of fear rose in my mouth. I saw dead bodies laying around me. And a shell hit a tank which created an uncontrollable fire. BANG! A bullet brushed past me and I fired continuously until I had killed 10 people. I felt a sudden pain in my heart... I fell down and mumbled ''God, take me up to heaven'' I felt dizzy and I closed my eyes and that... that was the story of the experience I had, In the battlefield...

The end...

coat-of-arms

Heraldry probably began with the knights in armour. When wearing a helmet in battle or in tournaments a knight could not be recognised; so he used symbols to decorate his shield and surcoat. The surcoat was the loose garment worn over the armour to protect it from rain or hot sun and actually was the "coat-of-arms"; it was decorated on the front and back with the same device as on the shield. The correct expression for entire design is an achievement . An achievement consists of the shield, helmet, rest, wreath, mantling and motto. These are the main parts. To them can be added supporters and a compartment. In the centre is the most important part, the shield . The surface of the shield is called the field  and on it the colourful charges are placed. The shield is called the arms or coat-of-arms  and can be drawn in any shape - in an upright position or slanting, which is the position it would fall into if hung on a peg. In Heraldry it slants to dexter. The helmet denot

You can find your Wireless Network Key on Virgin Media Wireless Router

We have a new netbook computer, and don't know where to find network key, which is needed to setup wireless connection. A network key may also be called WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) key or WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) key. A wireless network key is a security feature that prevents unauthorized users from accessing a wireless network. An unprotected network is an unlocked virtual door, anybody within range can piggyback on the network undetected. I use Virgin media broadband with a Virgin media wireless router, this router has a WPA key taped on the router, that WPA key is an English word consisting of 10 letters. To tape network key on the router is a good idea, because we may never lose or forget a wireless network key as long as we possess the router.

The Meaning of Derby City Council Logo

Derby City Logo The logo of Derby City Council looks quite abstract and modern. I wonder what's the meaning of it? The lower-left part of the logo looks like a snail (or the initial letter D in Derby?), the upper-right part seems a river, (Derwent river?) these two parts are connected by a straight line at the bottom. I did some searches on the web trying to find out the true meaning of Derby City Council logo, but without success. So, I wrote to tourist information, and got the answer from Michael: The Logo is a representation of two of Derby's oldest emblems, one being a ram the other a buck (deer). Obviously the logo is a modern interpretation of these two figures so it is not obvious unless you know what to look for. Most people do seem to agree with you that it looks like a snail however. Ram! the curly horn of ram looks like a snail indeed. The ram and the deer are from coat of arms of City of Derby, In this coats of arms, we can see the deers both in shield (arm
