Government dismisses chief of protocol of the Olympics .

A week before the start of the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs decided to dismiss the chief of protocol, Ambassador Fernando Igreja, responsible for all the organization of the reception of heads of state of Rio 2016, for political reasons. According to sources consulted by Reuters, the ambassador was out of office to be seen as linked to the government of President Dilma Rousseff away, since it was the Foreign Ministry's ceremonial head for three and a half years and has clear sympathy for the previous government. The order was given by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, José Serra, and Igreja was informed directly by the minister's office chief, Ambassador Julio Bitelli. However, a source heard on condition of anonymity revealed to Reuters that the decision left the Planalto Palace, coming from a minister of the senior. Church was not informed of the reasons for his departure. However, the same source says that the Igreja fell into the Presidential decision to withdraw from leadership positions anyone who shows sympathy by the previous government.

In this photo the central panel of the big white semi-circular backdrop behind the favelas seems not to have rejoined as a visibly tight seal.  There seems some separation at the vertical two joins.

This is the central panel expected to be lowered to allow the Cauldrn to travel outward on the overhead tracks

if that's where the Cauldron actually is (?)

I think I need to stop opening the spoilers. Just opening the periscope for a second and it looks pretty nice. I'm going to a watch party so I don't want to be the guy who knows exactly whats going to happen all the time...
