Fairtrade Logo

When I was urging Amanda to go to bed, I spotted several leaflets on the bedroom floor, and picked them up.  One of these was Fairtrade.

Amanda saw it too, and asked, "What can you see on Fairtrade logo?"

"They looks like a Chinese Tai Chi Fishes." Fairtrade logo always looks like Taiji fishes to me, though it's a bit different, as the colors, shapes are slightly different, another dot is missing too. I have never tried to find out what it actually means.

"Taiji Fish?" Amanda laughed, "it's not a fish, it's a person waving hands."



"A person? I can only see a large circle, and small circle, one giant blue fish looks like a whale, and another orange fish looks like a shark." I stared at the logo, turned upside down, at a slanting angle, moved it further away at a distance and then closer to myself to examine it, I couldn't figure out a person from the picture.

"The black dot or circle is the head, and the orange part is the waving arm." Amanda explained.

"But what does the blue part represent?" I asked, gradually make some sense of it.

"I am not sure, might be just kind of background?" Amanda shrugged.

"Right. How did you know that? " I asked, "did your teacher tell you so?"

"Yea. But I can see it anyway." She said. Then she put away her tablet, and jumped up into her bed.

"Turn off the light for me, please." she said, "and good night."

I'm wondering if my old knowledge has been preventing me from seeing new things, and old experience interfering my cognition.

Fw: Story -- A Lazy Fat King

The Fat King

Once upon a time there was a kingdom with... a fat king! He was very fat and lazy, he had 10 servants to help him to eat, and helped him to go to bed, and lots of other things. His first servant served the food on the table, the second servant put food on the spoon, the third servant opened his mouth, the fourth servant put the food in his mouth, the fifth servant had to help him chew! The sixth one fed him soup, the seventh one blew the soup if it was too hot, the eighth one wiped his mouth with a wet towel, the ninth one fed him desserts, and the tenth one put drinks in his mouth. The king was ''so'' lazy that he didn't even walk! He was carried around by some servants.

One day the chairs for the king were braking so the servants had to make special beds, then the…

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.

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 denotes the ran…
