Blues Is King

Blues Is King is a live album by blues musician B. B. King recorded in Chicago in 1966 and released by the BluesWay label in 1967; the AllMusic review stated: "By 1967, King had refined his guitar style to a fine point. What was just beginning to emerge during this period was King the showman, the singer with a story to tell his audience. Nowhere was this more apparent than in live performance. Here he's captured in concert in Chicago, home of the blues and the ideal place to testify to the congregation.... B. B. lets his audience in on the ups and downs of romance in no uncertain terms, both through his impassioned vocals and characteristically stinging guitar. The effect is both cathartic and awe-inspiring". Introduction – 0:19 "Waitin' on You" – 2:29 Introduction – 0:49 "Gamblers' Blues" – 5:12 "Tired of Your Jive" – 3:32 "Night Life" – 4:48 "Buzz Me" – 4:14 "Don't Answer the Door" – 4:10 "Blind Love" – 3:33 "I Know What You're Puttin' Down" – 3:36 "Baby Get Lost" – 3:59 "Gonna Keep on Loving You" – 3:46 B.

Old Cathedral of Salvador

The Old Cathedral of Salvador was the cathedral of the diocese and archdiocese of Salvador da Bahia, Brazil from the sixteenth century until 1765. In this year, the seat of the archdiocese moved to the current Cathedral of Salvador. Despite its historical significance, the Old Cathedral was demolished in 1933 under Archbishop Augusto Álvaro da Silva during a wave of redevelopment in Salvador's historic center. Demolition of the cathedral allowed for tram routes into the historic center of the city, but were soon discontinued; the current Cathedral of Salvador is a former Jesuit church. The Diocese of São Salvador da Bahia de Todos os Santos, the first in the Portuguese colony of Brazil, was created in 1551, only two years after the foundation of Salvador by nobleman Tomé de Sousa; the first bishop, Pero Fernandes Sardinha, arrived in 1552. For several years, a small chapel constructed by the Jesuits served as the cathedral. Construction began on a new cathedral began during the rule of Tomé de Sousa.

This site, outside the walls of Salvador's initial city settlement, was known as the Terreiro de Jesus because it was dominated by the Jesuit college and church. The exact dates of construction are not known, but in 1570 Governor Mem de Sá wrote that the building was of stone masonry, with three naves. Writing in 1587, explorer Gabriel Soares de Souza described it as "very well constructed and decorated, two side altars flanking the main chapel."Another stage of cathedral construction began on the Old Cathedral of Salvador at the beginning of the seventeenth century, during the rule of Governor Gaspar de Souza. This building was located on the same site in the Terreiro de Jesus as the previous church, with the facade oriented to face the bay, but this time the interior was a single nave. During the Dutch Invasion in 1624, the Old Cathedral was used as a military base and was damaged when the Portuguese retook the city in 1625; the Diocese was vacant for a decade, recovering its bishop only in 1634 with the arrival of D.

Pedro da Silva Sampaio. Starting in 1637, repairs were made on the Old Cathedral, in poor condition. In the second half of the seventeenth century, a major reconstruction project began in the Old Cathedral; this was a period when many colonial religious buildings were redone in a larger, more grandiose scale. Documents that record the definitive date or architect for this project do not survive, however it is probable that the building was designed in Portugal, given the attention that the central government paid with the work of the diocese; the cathedral was large for the period, with a facade flanked by two towers oriented towards the bay. The main structure was completed by the early eighteenth century, but the internal decorations were only completed in the 1730s. Historical records suggest that throughout the eighteenth century, the cathedral building suffered from neglect. In 1761 with the Jesuit expulsion from Brazil, their school and church in the Terreiro de Jesus became vacant. In a letter dated 1765, King Joseph I offered to Archbishop D. José Botelho de Matos the former Jesuit Church as a temporary site until the Cathedral could be restored.

By the early nineteenth century, the Cathedral facade was falling into ruin, its wall was repaired in an attempt to prevent the towers from falling. The wall itself fell into ruin, leading to the preventative demolition of the towers and a great part of the facade masonry; the enormous building, not preserved by ecclesiastical authorities, was transferred to the brotherhood of the Santíssimo Sacramento da Sé. The brotherhood did some restoration work, including replacing some interior altarpieces. On August 7, 1933, after years of heated debates, the Old Cathedral of Salvador was demolished along with two other colonial buildings in Salvador's Historic Center as part of a larger urban renewal project; the destruction of these buildings allowed the extension of tram routes run by the Companhia Linha Circular de Carris da Bahia. Some interior elements of the Old Cathedral were transferred to other Catholic institutions in Salvador; the new space created by the demolition of the Old Cathedral was named the Praça da Sé.

It served to store the new trolleys. In 1956, as homage to the religious and historical significance of the site, city officials erected a bronze bust of D. Pero Fernandes Sardinha, first Bishop of Brazil and a supporter of the construction of the first cathedral. In 1999, the sculptor Mário Cravo erected a stainless steel sculpture Cruz Caída, to commemorate the destruction of the historic Cathedral

UK Government G-Cloud

The UK Government G-Cloud is an initiative targeted at easing procurement by public-sector bodies in departments of the United Kingdom Government of commodity information technology services that use cloud computing. The G-Cloud consists of: A series of framework agreements with suppliers, from which public sector organisations can buy services without needing to run a full tender or competition procurement process An online store – the "Digital Marketplace" that allows public sector bodies to search for services that are covered by the G-Cloud frameworksThe service began in 2012, had several calls for contracts. By May 2013 there were over 700 suppliers -- over 80 % of. £18.2 million of sales were made by April 2013. With the adoption of Cloud First policy in UK in late February 2014 the sales have continued to grow hitting over £50M in February 2014; these are based on procurement of some 1,200 providers and 13,000 services, including both cloud services and specialist services as of November 2013.

Cloud computing caused. Given this, the UK Government initiated the G-Cloud programme of work to deliver computing based capability using cloud computing. G-Cloud established framework agreements with a large number of service providers. Public Sector organisations can call off the services listed on the Digital Marketplace without needing to go through a full tender process. After plans were announced in March 2011, the government aimed to shift 50% of new government IT spending to cloud based services by 2015. Furthermore, the government established a "Cloud First" approach to IT, mandating that central government purchases IT services through the cloud unless it can be proven that an alternative is more cost effective. In June 2013 G-Cloud moved to become part of Government Digital Service with the director Denise McDonagh moving to be CTO of the Home Office. Tony Singleton, COO of GDS, took over as director of G-Cloud. A new version of the G-Cloud framework is released about every 6 to 9 months.

G-Cloud version 9 went live in May 2017. G-Cloud had several calls for contract to establish framework agreements. Major US vendors Amazon Web Services and Google were excluded by the UK government in 2012 but AWS has since been added in 2013 and Google in 2018. Following hints by the head of the programme, GDS chief operating officer Tony Singleton, that the call for G-Cloud 4 would be open by the "end of July", the G-Cloud 4 call opened on the 6 August 2013; the blog entry stated that the tendering process has been improved, with the use of the Government Procurement Service. G-Cloud stated it expects to make calls every three to six months, but with no fixed frequency. Contract calls are listed on the Government Contract Finder website. In April 2013 the G-Cloud V call for framework contracts was listed as starting in March 2014. G-Cloud V opened on 25 February 2014; the press noted the name of the G-Cloud call for framework agreements moved from suffixing the call with Roman numerals to using the Arabic numeral 4.

Suppliers define the service that they are offering as part of the framework agreement, those details will be made available in the Digital Marketplace. These details include such things as Business Impact Level that the service is accredited for, how users will be on-boarded and off-boarded. In particular is the requirement to enable users to leave the service if they wish to move to a different provider of the same service; as of G-Cloud 9, services are classified into 3 lots: Lot 1: Cloud Hosting and: Cloud platform or infrastructure services that can help buyers do at least 1 of: deploy and run software and provision and use processing, storage or networking resources Lot 2: Cloud Software: Applications that are accessed over a public or private network e.g. the internet and hosted in the cloud Lot 3: Cloud Support The Digital Marketplace is a publicly accessible, searchable database of services offered under G-Cloud. The first service was offered in February 2012. Following criticism of the original CloudStore interface, CloudStore was reworked by May 2013.

In 2014, the Government Digital Service announced it would be replacing the CloudStore with a new platform called the "Digital Marketplace" in beta. The Digital Marketplace aims to integrate the Digital Services framework in 2015 and other framework contracts. Services can be searched by free text search as well as by continual narrowing of the field using various search criteria such as business impact level supported, deployment model; the Digital Marketplace procurement processes handle procurement of services. They do not replace internal processes for securing funds. However, assuming funds are available, procurement from the Digital Marketplace does not require a full tender or mini-competition.
