San Salvador (Guipúzcoan squadron)
The article you are about to read is about a ship from the Spanish Armada. San Salvador was a Spanish galleon of the Spanish Armada as part of the Guipúzcoan squadron of Miguel de Oquendo, she was damaged and captured as a result of the first encounter of the Armada with the Royal Navy in 1588. San Salvador was lost at sea in the English Channel that same year. During the first encounter with the English fleet on 31 July 1588, during a lull in battle, San Salvador's gunpowder magazine exploded, lighting a portion of the ship on fire; the Spanish fleet was able to rescue some of the injured. 49 crew died as a result of this explosion and 23 had died due to combat. On 1 August, San Salvador was ordered to be scuttled, but instead was set adrift; the English dispatched an inspection party to San Salvador and found fifty burnt bodies aboard. Golden Hind, a ship in the English fleet towed San Salvador to the English port at Weymouth. San Salvador was one of the heaviest armed in the Spanish fleet; the Spanish records rate the ship at 958 tons, while the English assessment rated the ship at only 600 tons.
These are the only numbers available for calibration of the reported vessel tonnage between the two fleets. Between San Salvador and Rosario, the English retrieved a significant amount of cannon shot and powder. One estimate places the 229 barrels of powder captured from these two ships at one quarter the total used by the English during the entire campaign. San Salvador became known as the Great Spaniard to the English fleet after her capture. On 15 November 1588, notice was sent to Lord Charles Howard that San Salvador had been lost at sea at Studland. Twenty-three men died with the ship. A wreck discovered in 1983 in Studland Bay was believed to be the San Salvador but is now thought to be a Spanish merchant ship, Santa Maria de Luce.

Sounds Like Chicken
Sounds Like Chicken was a band from Melbourne, which formed in 1999 and disbanded in 2007. They were one of Australia's most well-known ska bands and one of the most popular Christian bands in the country, they were signed to Boomtown Records. Sounds Like Chicken's musical style included a blend of Ska, Reggae & Rock; the band were known for their "high energy" live performances. Sounds Like Chicken shared stages and toured with such bands, including Reel Big Fish, Mad Caddies, Crowned King, Hilltop Hoods, Area-7, Bodyjar, 28 Days, Killing Heidi, The O. C. Supertones, Antiskeptic. Sounds like Chicken had rotation on the radio station Triple J with their double A-side single "Take a Bullet to the Grave"/"El Chupanebre" and their other single "Global Domination". After their breakup, SLC released all their previous recordings under Creative Commons, for free online distribution; the band reformed for a once-off show on 11 May 2014 as a benefit for independent record store Fist2face. Sounds Like Chicken began in 1999 when Nathanael Kitingan met Nyall Dawson at Monash University in Melbourne.
Nat and Nyall attempted to start an unnamed musical project with Hugh Ogilvy featuring Nyall on electric violin, Hugh on guitar and Nat on drums. This trio did not get off the ground and so brothers Joel and Elliot Dawson joined to form Sounds Like Chicken, a ska project taking influences from Voodoo Glow Skulls, The O. C. Supertones, The Insyderz and Five Iron Frenzy; this early lineup was Nyall, Elliot and Hugh. Sounds Like Chicken's first show was at Joel's 21st birthday party in mid-2000. Hugh left the band at the end of 2000 due to other commitments and was replaced by Tom Dowding on guitar. Tom was an accomplished bass player and so Nat decided to swap to playing guitar so that Tom's talent could be utilised; the band decided they needed another horn and so after a number of unsuccessful audition attempts, in 2001 Nat met Natalie Parker at university and invited her to a practice. Natalie was apprehensive but was convinced by the boys to join the band. During her second practice she was laying down trumpet tracks on their first demo recording which ended up becoming the band's self-made demo EP, "Slowly Going the Way of the Chicken".
Sounds Like Chicken toured interstate for the first time under this lineup in September 2001, playing in Sydney and Canberra and at the Black Stump Music Festival. In 2002, Tom Dowding departed from Sounds like Chicken to be replaced by Joshua Diemar on bass, it was in this year that Sounds Like Chicken released their first studio EP, "I Am Gibbon, Hear Me Roar", produced by David Carr. The EP gave the band airplay on community radio, Christian radio, Triple J. In early 2004, the band were signed to Boomtown Records, a Melbourne-based indie record label distributing through Shock Records and MGM. Deciding that a bigger ensemble was required, Sounds Like Chicken asked long-time friend Dave Powys to join on second guitar, making them a 7-piece band. Dave moved down from Canberra and recorded on the single Global Domination, their first release with Boomtown and distributed through MGM; the single received national airplay and spot airplay on Triple J and was sold out within 2 months of its limited pressing.
It was noted. It was shortly after this that the band decided it was time to move on and the band was without a bass-player, they were booked in to record an album and so asked if Carlos Echeverria would fill in and record bass for them. Their first full-length album, "... Like a Cannonball to the Ocean Floor" was released late that year through Boomtown doing well on the airwaves; the album drew acclaim from reviewers as a "brilliantly released debut album", although the length of 17 tracks drew some criticism. Sounds Like Chicken did a joint national tour with label-mates Wishful Thinking to launch the album. Carlos joined shortly after the album's release. In early 2005 founding member and manager, decided to part ways with the band. Mike "Carcass" Haydon, only 17 at the time, was able to fill the role of drummer. Mike had been a tour roadie for the band for the past 3 years and so was well-acquainted with their songs; that year Sounds Like Chicken released the second double-A side single off the album, "Take a Bullet to the Grave/El Chupanebre" through Boomtown Records, completed a national tour over 3 months to launch it.
On 3 November 2006, founding member, Nyall Dawson, announced his decision to depart the band early in 2007. Sounds Like Chicken have played and toured with numerous well-known Australian and international acts and have been featured on various international and Australian compilations and soundtracks such as Turn the Other Cheek Volume 1. On 18 December 2006 Sounds Like Chicken announced they were calling it a day in a bulletin released on the band's MySpace; the main factors in the breakup was the future departure of Nyall Dawson and other key members of the band, the band stated... "We guess. There was other plans for our lives and with the impending departure of some key members, we felt that SLC would not be SLC if we went on without them. We all feel at peace about this decision." Shortly after, the band announced plans for an Australia wide farewell tour to take place in February–March 2007, along with the release of a final limited-edition compilation disk titled Death To The Crow to coincide wi

Established in what is now the archaeological site of Ciudad Vieja, north of the present-day city, it was moved to the Valle de Las Hamacas, so named for the intense seismic activity that characterizes it. The new site was chosen because it had more space and more fertile land, thanks to the Acelhuate River; the population of the city remained small until the early 20th century.
