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

A chicken rap battle

Once upon a time, in an African Savanna, there was a lion and a tiger. The lion was called LION and the tiger was called TIGER. LION and TIGER were hunting, they didn't know each other yet.
LION came across a buffalo and chased after it, TIGER saw the same buffalo and chased after it. They came across each other and they stopped chasing the buffalo. "Hi," said LION, "Hello there," said TIGER in a deep voice.
TIGER was hungry, he wanted to eat LION as lunch. LION was hungry, too, LION wanted to befriend TIGER. TIGER pretended to be friendly, so when LION wasn't noticing, he would run for the kill. But LION noticed that TIGER had a plan. So LION sat beside TIGER and listened. LION heard TIGER's stomach rumbling and LION knew for sure he wanted to eat him. SO LION told TIGER about TIGER going to eat him. TIGER growled and now knew that his act wasn't enough, then he challenged LION to a chicken rap battle.
What’s that? LION asked.
“A chicken rap battle is when you rap about chickens and there are chickens as judges. Tiger answered.
LION accepted and he hired 3 chickens for the judging, TIGER said in a deep voice "If you win I will let you go. If I win I can eat you. And you guys, chickens!"
"What?!" The chickens were frightened, and immediately ran away.
"Wait!” shouted TIGER. “I promise not to eat you."
So TIGER shook their hands one by one with the chicken.
So, the chicken rap battle started.
"Chickens are poop, they never ever loop, they lay things called eggs, and they look like pole pegs!" TIGER rapped.
"The beautiful chickens are so good to me, they always poo-poo and that stinky little pee! The chickens come from a place called a farm, they lay eggs for the farmers and the chicks go calm." LION rapped.
The chickens didn't appreciate TIGER's rap so they said LION won. TIGER was furious, that LION will be able to escape now. LION ran away, leaving TIGER starving. TIGER couldn't bear it any longer so he broke his promise and ate the chickens.

Meanwhile LION was telling the other lions what had happened and they accepted LION's request about getting revenge on TIGER. The next day all the lions and LION went to TIGER's den, where TIGER was sleeping. The lions and LION sneaked in and killed TIGER for their revenge. So LION lived happily ever after, and became the king of the African Savanna.

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
