Definitions for "Arms"
What your heraldic design becomes once you receive an Award or Grant of Arms
heraldic insignia or markings on armor (as in a coat of arms). These arms are hereditary; just because someone with your surname once had a coat of arms, does not mean that you, or everyone with your surname, is entitled to use those arms.
The heraldic device of someone who has an award of arms or better is his or her arms; other people have devices, in the SCA and SGU, whereas in the real Middle Ages they had nothing at all; commoners didn't have heraldic devices of any kind. In the SCA and SGU the lowest level of arms is an award of arms; above that is a grant of arms, commonly conferred on Barons; while the noble orders of the Spur, the Laurel, the Pelican, and the rank of Count/Countess and Duke/Duchess confer a patent of arms.

Adjustable rate mortgage. A mortgage that features predetermined adjustments of the loan interest rate at regular intervals based on an established index. The interest rate is adjusted at each interval to a rate equivalent to the index value plus a predetermined spread, or margin, over the index, usually subject to per-interval and to life-of-loan interest rate and/or payment rate caps.
Adjustable Rate Mortgages have notes rates that can change from time to time. The most common adjustable period is one year; however some ARMs can adjust every month; some don't adjust until after three years. ARMs carry a lower note rates than fixed fixed-rate loans. Many times ARMs can be used to qaulify for a larger loan. ARMs always have quoted indexes and margins. Indexes (the basis for a paticular ARM) almost never vary from lender to lender, while Margins (the add-on index used to determine your adjusted rate) vary widely.
ARMs are mortgages that require the real estate buyer to pay an interest rate that is periodically adjusted. The amount of the rate is tied to some index outside the control of the lender, such as the interest rate on U.S. Treasury bills. Like fixed-rate mortgages, ARMs are often grouped by a government agency and sold as a single security, with investors receiving payments out of the interest and principal on the underlying mortgages. Funds that invest primarily in these ARM-backed securities are called Adjustable Rate Mortgage Funds.
