Links, links – so many of them, so little time. Luckily for you I’m on hand to sift through them all. Today (NBC program) we have blogposts to do with all sorts, including Pippa Middleton, Miley Cyrus and Kanye West.
NBC: The National Broadcasting Company (NBC) is an American commercial broadcasting television network and former radio network headquartered in the GE Building in New York City’s Rockefeller Center with additional major offices near Los Angeles and in Chicago. NBC is sometimes referred to as the “Peacock Network,” due to its stylized peacock logo,created originally for color broadcasts. Formed in 1926 by the Radio Corporation of America (RCA),NBC was the first major broadcast network in the United States. In 1986,control of NBC passed to General Electric (GE),with GE’s .4?billion purchase of RCA. GE had previously owned RCA and NBC until 1930,when it had been forced to sell the company as a result of antitrust charges. After the 1986 acquisition,the chief executive of NBC was Bob Wright,until he retired,giving his job to Jeff Zucker. The network is currently part of the media company NBCUniversal,which is a joint venture of Comcast and General Electric since 2011 (and before that,jointly owned by GE and current Universal Music Group parent Vivendi). As a result of the merger,Zucker left NBC and was replaced by Comcast executive Steve Burke. NBC has 10 owned-and-operated stations and nearly 200 affiliates in the United States and its territories.

Dog: The domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris),is a subspecies of the gray wolf (Canis lupus),a member of the Canidae family of the mammilian order Carnivora. The term “domestic dog” is generally used for both domesticated and feral varieties. The dog may have been the first animal to be domesticated,and has been the most widely kept working,hunting,and companion animal in human history. The word “dog” may also mean the male of a canine species,as opposed to the word “bitch” for the female of the species. The present lineage of dogs was domesticated from gray wolves about 15,000 years ago. Remains of domesticated dogs have been found in Siberia and Belgium from about 33,000 years ago. None of these early domestication lineages seem to have survived the Last Glacial Maximum. Although mDNA suggest a split between dogs and wolves around 100,000 years ago no specimens predate 33,000 years ago that are clearly morphologically domesticated dog. Dogs’ value to early human hunter-gatherers led to them quickly becoming ubiquitous across world cultures. Dogs perform many roles for people,such as hunting,herding,pulling loads,protection,assisting police and military,companionship,and,more recently,aiding handicapped individuals. This impact on human society has given them the nickname “Man’s Best Friend” in the Western world. In some cultures,dogs are also source of meat. In 2001,there were estimated to be 400?million dogs in the world. Most breeds of dogs are at most a few hundred years old,having been artificially selected for particular morphologies and behaviors by people for specific functional roles. Through this selective breeding,the dog has developed into hundreds of varied breeds,and shows more behavioral and morphological variation than any other land mammal. For example,height measured to the withers ranges from a 2 inches (51?mm) in the Chihuahua to a 2 feet (0.61?m) in the Irish Wolfhound; color varies from white through grays (usually called “blue”) to black,and browns from light (tan) to dark (“red” or “chocolate”) in a wide variation of patterns; coats can be short or long,coarse-haired to wool-like,straight,curly,or smooth. It is common for most breeds to shed this coat.
