The Song of the Dodo: Island Biogeography in an Age of Extinctions by David QuammenDavid Quammens book, The Song of the Dodo, is a brilliant, stirring work, breathtaking in its scope, far-reaching in its message -- a crucial book in precarious times, which radically alters the way in which we understand the natural world and our place in that world. Its also a book full of entertainment and wonders.
In The Song of the Dodo, we follow Quammens keen intellect through the ideas, theories, and experiments of prominent naturalists of the last two centuries. We trail after him as he travels the world, tracking the subject of island biogeography, which encompasses nothing less than the study of the origin and extinction of all species. Why is this island idea so important? Because islands are where species most commonly go extinct -- and because, as Quammen points out, we live in an age when all of Earths landscapes are being chopped into island-like fragments by human activity.
Through his eyes, we glimpse the nature of evolution and extinction, and in so doing come to understand the monumental diversity of our planet, and the importance of preserving its wild landscapes, animals, and plants. We also meet some fascinating human characters. By the books end we are wiser, and more deeply concerned, but Quammen leaves us with a message of excitement and hope.

The educational channel, which has more than 10 million subscribers, creates the brightly-coloured videos to help children learn and interact with the cartoon Pinkfong - a prince from the planet Staria. The baby shark song is now reportedly listed as one of the Top 40 most-viewed videos ever on YouTube. The baby shark challenge began when people began filming themselves recreating the easy shark dance moves. In the baby shark version, parents are dressing up as sharks and dancing to the tune as their cars continue to move. However, experts warn about participating in the viral baby shark dance as it is not safe to walk alongside a moving car.

Went to Punta Cana in August. All the staff at the resort would sing the popular tune "Dum da-da-dum da It was pretty catchy and I'd like to hear it again but I never caught the name or artist!

It goes something like. I forgot to say that the Do's are the words in the vocals during the chorus but they are not saying do. I can tell its an 80s song by the style of drums,guitar,synths, you just know this stuff if its in your head. Sounds like duran druan and pet shop boys mixed together. Maybe it's similar to an early 80's song I'm also looking for. But, instead of do or du, it's got uh and Oh: uh, uh-uh, uh-uh, Ohh. It has a beat to it almost driving music fast.
