Is a poodle a terrier?

No. Although the poodle is classed in the Non-Sporting group, the poodle was originally a retriever. Terriers were developed for hunting out burrowing animals, and as such, have a totally different temperament.

Are poodles good with cats?

Any dog can be good with cats if it is raised with them from a puppy, that is why it is important to socialize a puppy to all kinds of people, animals, and different situations when it is young to avoid behavioral problems when older. It is possible to teach a dog to get along with cats, it just might take a lot of consistent training.

What type of temper does the poodle have?

Poodles have a kind temperament and they also make good guide dogs and will protect you. They like to act the fool and play games, and are very sociable animals. As with all dogs, they do have a temper, but this depends on how the poodle is raised and trained. A poodle will not show aggression unless he or she has no choice to defend or protect themselves. But once again, it does depend on how you raise the poodle and how socialised he or she is.

What does a french poodle look like?

The Poodle is actually a German breed, not French. There is no such thing as a "French Poodle." There are three different types of poodle, the largest being the Standard, the middle-size the Miniature, and the smallest the Toy. They were originally bred to retrieve game from water. Their thick curly hair is to protect them from cold water. The strange haircut they get is to maximize protection (the parts where the hair is left on) and maximize mobility (the parts where the hair is shaved off).

Poodles are not ugly. They are very beautiful and graceful. Sometimes poodles don't look very pretty because they are cut funny, but their hair can be cut differently.

Are toy poodles good alone or with other dogs?

They can be perfectly fine as an only dog in a household, or they are O.K. with other dogs also. I have three toy poodles and they really enjoy playing with each other and each others company. Just make sure to sociallize a puppy when it is young so it is more likely to get along with other dogs.

Why are poodles groomed like that?

That very specific grooming style (the shaved parts, the floofy tufts) actually has some thought behind it. Beyond evoking the French aristocracy, that is.

Poodles weren’t bred to lounge and look down on us plebs—they were bred to be retrievers. That pattern of hair is intended to speed up their swimming while keeping their vital organs and joints warm.

A poodle’s coat is also pretty difficult to maintain. Since it’s so curly and thick, it gets matted easily, requiring frequent brushing. Shaving or closely clipping parts of the dog can help make that more manageable.

How does the media know how many people tuned into a certain show?

In reality less than 37,000 households in the entire United States are "Nielson Families," this is according to the company, itself. Assertions that over a million people have boxes or diaries is a misnomer.

When a household is chosen, and you agree to do it, the television sets in the house get a box to monitor your viewing. You also get remote controls with a button for each person in the house. When family members start watching a show, they press the buttons that represents each of the viewers. If someone in the house isn't watching that show, their button isn't pressed. Every 15 minutes, for as long as they are watching TV, they have to press their button (which is why TV ratings can be broken into 15 minute increments and the networks will be able to see when people are tuning into a show and when they are tuning out. The DVR you are given (along with a small stipend) is also monitored so they can get the SD (same day) and SD+7 (watching up to one week from broadcast) time-shifting viewers. You also may get a diary although they have been phasing this out as the immediate monitoring is more accurate.

After midnight each night, your box sends signals to Nielson where they figure out preliminary numbers to report to their subscribers in the morning. These numbers are not always 100% accurate as not all of the information is in by the time they release the report so another report is released the following day with the final numbers.

The Nielson ratings is not always accurate as a way to tell who is watching. This was proven with the TV show "Chuck" when two years ago, the star, Zach Levi, asked that all of the fans buy a "$5 footlong" sandwich from Subway on the evening of the last episode of the show in 2008 and to fill out on the Subway comment card that you love "Chuck." The response was overwhelming and showed many more people watched the show than the Nielson ratings indicated - and the show was renewed for another season. Nielson is trying to find a better way to get more accurate ratings for shows.

AnswerMillions of households are chosen at random to receive a "Neilson Box" hence "Neilson ratings". Its like a cable box that monitors what shows you watch and how long you watch them. Every night the Neilson Company records the data and sends it to the television networks. I don't know the website, but if you Google Neilson ratings, you can apply to get a box. However there is a test. You have to watch television for at least 4 hours per day to qualify. Answer

I was a Nielsen family for 2 years, 1999-2001. Part of the reason many people think they've never met a Nielsen family is that the Nielsen Media Research company is very clear on the fact that if they discover you've told people you're participating, your meter will be removed or your diary entries will be scrapped. There are about 1.5 million people each year who fill out a written diary of their tv watching habits for a short period of time (7 days, or 8 if you have a DVR), and tens of thousands of the better known metered families, which is longer-term and involves equipment attached to the TVs in your home to automatically record what you watch. If you are a metered Nielsen family, you receive a (very small) monetary compensation (at the time I did it, it was a couple dollars per tv, vcr, and DVD player. Less than $10 per month). You cannot volunteer or sign up to be a Nielsen family, it is entirely random. The only way to become a Nielsen family is to be lucky enough to receive one of their postcards or phone calls inviting you to participate. There is no requirement for the amount of time you must spend watching tv, and they monitor all household sizes, types, and backgrounds.

Has proper English pronunciation become 'bastardized' in the South and other areas over the ages?

English is one of the most flexible languages on earth, and its position as an international language is strong evidence of that. Because of this flexibility (English is no longer inflected, as it was in centuries past) and the ease with which it takes on words and meanings from other languages, English changes and grows as does any other living thing. Of course, our tendency is to think of England as the birthplace of our language, and indeed it is. But there really is no such thing as "Proper" English, especially in the sense of pronunciation. There is "standard" English, and even then we would have to say that there are "standard Englishes", and not just one. The truth is that even Elizabeth II herself has changed her accent over the years, as evidenced by the many clips and newsreels we can study over the course of her reign. British English is standard English, and US English is a standard English as well. And "proper" English is pronounced the way any group of local speakers pronounces it. When in situations where you must communicate with others from different parts of the US or the world, there are conventional vocabularies and structures that can guide you in the use of "standard English" that should be to everyone's satisfaction. Some theorists consider English to be a "creole language", or "creolized language" based on Danish (arguably the 'mother' of English) and other languages like French, German, Latin, and Frisian. I like this idea. It highlights the perfectly lively nature of our language. English does change, as it naturally will, and there is now a recognized language, Gullah, based on English, and which is native to North America (South Carolina-- see link). There are no "bastardized" accents among people who speak a common language. There are many Englishes. We have a general understanding of what is meant by "Old English" when we hear that term, but it can mean much more than early forms of English in a bygone era. We can contrast several contemporary 'Old Englishes' with as many 'New Englishes' being spoken all over the globe. Basically, If you speak an English that was passed down to you by your caregivers who also spoke English as their native tongue, you speak 'Old English'... even if you are a hearty twenty five. People who are speaking English as a second language, or who can trace their English-learning histories back to people who learned English as a second language, are speaking 'New English'. I can only express a truth here, which I believe is all but universal, even if it keenly embarrasses me to do so. From time to time I weaken, and these concepts of proper, old and new Englishes anger me a little, and threaten me. But when I realize that I am but a moment in the very long life of our brilliant, puissant tongue, I conclude: "Isn't it just like this Titan English to stretch and rise beyond anyone's attempts to hold it back?"
