Tenors

5 minutes ago

The word “tenor” is from the Latin tenere, “to hold”…and in medieval and Renaissance vocal music, from about 1250 to 1500, the tenor voice was the “holding voice.” It was the voice that held the principal melody, often with long held-out notes, and the voice around which the other voices were composed. The tenor voice, always a male voice, was not necessarily a high voice—or at least not originally.

A lot of Republicans will head to the polls in New Hampshire on Tuesday, motivated to vote against Donald Trump.

But because of a quirk in how the state party allocates delegates and how fractured the "establishment" field is, it could mean that an anti-Trump vote will actually be a vote for the New York billionaire.

Here's how:

The state party awards delegates on a proportional basis to presidential candidates based on their vote statewide in each congressional district.

But it also has a 10 percent threshold.

  “W” is for Waring, Joseph Ioor [1897-1977]. Pediatrician. Medical historian. Upon completion of his education, Joseph Waring spent three years in Tennessee before returning to South Carolina and establishing a private practice in Charleston. He also became an assistant in the pediatrics department at the Medical College of the State of South Carolina, where he rose to the rank of clinical professor of pediatrics. He published numerous articles in state and national medical journals. He had a tremendous interest in history and by 1949 was the librarian for the Medical Society of South Carolina. Under his stewardship, the Society's collections were greatly expanded. In 1969, this valuable archive was named in his honor. Between 1964 and 1971 Joseph Ioor Waring published a three volume History of Medicine in South Carolina, the first general and comprehensive history of medicine in the state.
