  3. Is something happening that we do not know about. Three people i know have said,one in Yorkshire and 2 in Lancashire who do not communicate with each other have heard strange unexplained noises from the sky. A loud humming,whining noise. Rumbling,not storms in the distance.Not tinnitus,going on for ages.A mixture of sounds. Are we chasing UFOS about perhaps.You cannot pinpoint it,it is everywhere it seems.

  5. Fines for misusing bus lanes are overtaking parking tickets as the main cause of complaints from drivers, according to the AA. The motoring group said thousands of drivers were being "entrapped" by worn road markings and poor signage. A junction in Lambeth, south London generated the highest number of fines, totalling over £6m, the AA claimed. Lucrative rat traps' Edmund King, AA president, said: "Whilst we support the use of bus lanes in the right places, functioning at the right times, we are totally opposed to 'entrapment' cameras on poorly designed or poorly signe
  6. People who are the victims of so-called "vishing" [problem]s cannot always rely on their bank to compensate them, a study has suggested. In nearly two-thirds of cases the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) found that banks were not responsible for victims' losses. It looked at 200 examples of the telephone fraud, in which account holders lost up to £100,000 each. But it ruled that the bank was liable for those losses in only 37% of cases. In 63% of them, consumers were left without compensation, having, in effect, given their own money away. As a result it is warning
  7. When the Work Programme was introduced, and ever since, the Government said that it would be funded by the money it saved from future benefit spending. I took the following figures from DWP's own statistics and placed them here to see whether anyone else can find where any expenditure on benefits has been saved, far less the cost of the Work Programme. Total expenditure directed at working age 2010/11...................£51.17bn 2011/12...................£53.00bn 2012/13...................£54.98bn 2013/14...................£51.66bn 2014/15...................£51.91bn This f

  10. I'm thinking of taking a small loan for this amount maximum, and would even settle for just £300 if I could get a reasonable repayment schedule and rate of interest. The thing is, I want to avoid Wonga like the plague, considering the horror stories I've heard about them, I don't need an interest rate with 4 decimal places and I'm willing to repay within 2 years at most. The thing is, technically, I could save up, but it would take a few months at least, but I'm wondering if that is my best bet. What is the best advice you can give?
  11. Figures from the City regulator show customers made 3.4 million complaints about banks and other financial companies in the second half of 2012. Barclays is the UK's most complained about bank, receiving more than 2,300 new complaints a day from its disgruntled customers. Figures published by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the new city regulator, shows it received a total of 414,302 new complaints in the second half of 2012. The FCA data shows that the companies that received the most complaints, after Barclays, were Lloyds TSB (349,386 new complaints over this period) Bank of S
  12. Nationwide has launched a self-service current account paying more interest than most High Street savings accounts. The new FlexDirect account pays customers 1.6 per cent after tax (2 per cent before) on balances up to £2,500 — a rate well above the average 0.74 per cent (0.92 per cent) payable on easy access deals. However, it has been dubbed a self-service account because you won’t be able to do any of your everyday banking at counters in branches.

  13. We all carry debit cards, credit cards and mobile phones, and most of these items require a four digit pin to unlock them. Shockingly, it appears that one in every 10 people uses the same pin – 1234. Theoretically, there are 10,000 possible four-digit combinations the numbers 0 to 9 can be arranged into, and if everyone selected a number entirely at random that would offer a reasonable level of protection. People, however, seem to exhibit a staggering lack of imagination and select very predictable numbers. This is probably because people choose numbers that are easy to remem

  15. UK credit card lending suffered its biggest net fall in nearly six years in July, in a sign that households are reluctant to borrow more and casting doubt on any imminent rebound in consumer spending. Bank of England figures on Thursday showed that net credit card lending fell by £147m, the biggest drop since August 2006, dragging overall unsecured consumer lending down by the largest margin since February this year, Reuters reports. The figures dampen hopes of a strong rebound in economic activity in July after nine months of recession, and contrast with official retail sales data that
  16. After working for a Company for the past 18 years, holding many, many different positions within the Company. I was informed 2 weeks ago that the Company were restructuring again & my job role was being made redundant. 4 'new' job roles ( 1 Quality Manager & 3 Quality Auditor's ) were created & i along with others were encouraged to apply for these jobs & after various one to one meetings & an interview i was finally informed yesterday by telephone ( Due to being off sick ) of the Companies decision that i had failed in my application & therefore would indeed be made re
  17. The British banking industry was the second most unprofitable in the world in 2011, according to an analysis of lenders in major economies. Britain’s banks were only underperformed by Italian lenders, producing an average return on shareholders’ equity last year of less than 4pc, compared with 26pc in Indonesia, the world’s most profitable banking market. The research by Boston Consulting Group (BCG) highlighted the performance gap that has opened up between Britain’s largest banks and their biggest international competitors. US lenders reported an average return on equity last year of cl
  18. This is just fantastic. Pick out any interesting location around the world and click on it. A page will come up with a photo. In the center is a circle with a triangle. Click on the triangle. Now you get a full picture. If it's not a full screen, click on the 4 dots in the lower right corner. Now with full screen, place your curser anywhere on the screen and slowly drag the picture in any direction you want. Left, right, up, down, slow or stop. Try the Egyptian Pyramids in Egypt or Moscow, Kremlin to get started. This is a one e-mail you will want to save. Enjoy. Panoramas and 3D Tours
