Civil Servant
The CIVIL SERVICE is a sector of government composed mainly of career bureaucrats hired on professional merit rather than appointed or elected, whose institutional tenure typically survives transitions of political leadership. A CIVIL SERVANT or PUBLIC SERVANT is a person so employed in the public sector employed for a government department or agency. The extent of civil servants of a state as part of the "civil service" varies from country to country. In the United Kingdom, for instance, only Crown (national government) employees are referred to as civil servants whereas county or city employees are not. Many consider the study of service to be a part of the field of public administration . Workers in "non-departmental public bodies" (sometimes called "Quangos ") may also be classed as civil servants for the purpose of statistics and possibly for their terms and conditions. Collectively a state's civil servants form its civil service or public service

Spanish Naming Customs
SPANISH NAMING CUSTOMS are historical traditions for naming children practised in Spain
Spain
. According to these customs, a person's name consists of a given name (simple or composite) followed by two family names (surnames ). The first surname is usually the father's first surname, and the second the mother's first surname. In recent years, the order of the surnames can be reversed at birth if it is so decided by the parents. Often, the practice is to use one given name and the first surname only (e.g. Miguel de Unamuno ), with the full name being used in legal, formal, and documentary matters, or for disambiguation when the first surname is very common (e.g. Federico García Lorca , Gabriel García Márquez
Gabriel García Márquez
