Sir deriva do francês antigo Sieur (ele própria uma contração de Seigneur que significa "senhor"), a partir do adjetivo latino sénior. No protocolo formal,Sir é o estilo correto para um cavaleiro ou um barão (o posto da nobreza do Reino Unido logo abaixo todos os pares do reino), usado com o nome próprio do cavaleiro ou com o nome completo, mas não com o sobrenome apenas.
Um cavaleiro (/ na?t /) é uma pessoa dotada de um título honorário de cavaleiro por um monarca ou outro líder político para o serviço ao monarca ou país.
A palavra cavaleiro, de Inglês antigo cniht ("menino" ou "servo"), é um cognato da palavra alemã Knecht ("servo, escravo").

Sir derives from the Old French Sieur (he own a contraction of Seigneur meaning "lord"), from the Latin adjective senior. In formal protocol Sir is the correct style for a knight or a baron (the rank of nobility from the UK just below all peers of the realm), used with the proper name of the rider or the full name, but not with the surname only.
A knight (/ na?t /) is a person with an honorary knighthood by a monarch or other political leader for service to the monarch or country.
The word knight, from Old English cniht ("boy" or "servant"), is a cognate of the German word Knecht ("servant, slave").

We have a dozen on the ballot for the 9/24 preliminary, winnowing to a final pair for the first week of November; That's hot stuff her after 20 years of Tom Menino.
2013 started with a surprising announcement from the chief of one of America’s great cities. On March 28th Thomas Menino, announced that after 20 years and much consternation he would step down at the end of the year and not run for a sixth term in office. The mayor since 1993, Menino became Boston’s longest serving mayor, pushing and prodding the city from its provincial roots into one of the most ethnically diverse and globally connected cities in America.Big shoes to fill indeed. And not a moment passed before 24 would be replacements stepped up, filled out preliminary paperwork and announced their candidacy for mayor of America‘ 21st largest city...and the largest city in New England.That 24 was cut in half by the time required citizen signatures were gathered and requirements were met. And now there are 12 candidates all vying to fill the shoes of a Mayor so rooted in this metro area.Today we’ll profile all 12 candidates and one in particular: City Councilor Charles Yancey. Earlier this summer we interviewed Charlotte Golar Richie..and my goal is to upload audio clips of all 12 candidates by the September 24th Primary.It’s election time again, and we’re digging deep into Boston politics as we showcase the men and one woman who want to be the next mayor of Boston.

When The Candidate Is A Woman: Charlotte Golar RichieOn Becoming Mayor Of BostonLast March when Mayor Thomas Menino announced that after five terms in office as the longest serving mayor of Boston he would not run for re-election, the floodgates of candidates opened wide for all. Poor health stopped Menino’s political dynasty, but left huge shoes to fill.Enter the floodgate of candidates, including the 12 now running in the city’s upcoming September 24th primary. Nearly half of them are people of color, a record for a city with a checkered racial past.Of the 12 candidates, only one of them is a woman: Charlotte Golar Richie. Former three term State Representative who has served under both Governor Deval Patrick and Mayor Thomas Menino, Charlotte breaks the mold when it comes to balancing family with a stellar political/civic engagement career.We interview Charlotte on today’s show. Our goal is to interview all 12 candidates before the September primary.And we’ll showcase some quick interviews from high school students, Sylvia Riley and Tairiq Portwine, attending the Christian Education Congress of the First District AME Church here in Dover, Delaware as we dig deep into the summer activities of young people across the country.
