Before its extinction, where did the dodo bird live?

Mauritius

MAURITUS

Answer: The dodo is an extinct species of flightless bird that was native to the tiny island nation of Mauritius, in the Indian Ocean. Dodos were large birds, approximately three-feet tall. The last known, credible sighting of the bird was in 1662, just 64 years after it was discovered on its home island of Mauritius. Dodos have become an icon of extinction which is likely due to human behavior. Though dodos disappeared from their home many centuries ago, they appear in stories all around the world as a symbol for extinction and caricature of obsolescence.

Turquoise

TURQUOISE

Answer: Kermit the Frog is possibly the most infamous puppet of all time. Created by puppeteer and all round entertainer Jim Henson, Kermit came to life in 1955. He originally started life as an old turquoise coat that his mother threw in the dustbin. Seeing potential for a new creation, Henson rescued the coat, and fashioned it into a lizard like creation, with ping-pong ball halves for eyes. Henson established that Kermit was a frog after a few television appearances – his green frilled collar was later added to hide the seams between head and neck.

COLD  WAR

Answer: The Cold War was a period of geopolitical tension between the democracies of the Western World and the communist countries of Eastern Europe. The west was led by the United States and Eastern Europe was led by the Soviet Union. These two countries became known as superpowers. Although the two superpowers never officially declared war on each other, they fought indirectly in proxy wars, the arms race, and the space race. The period is generally considered to span the 1947 Truman Doctrine to the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union. The term "cold" is used because there was no large-scale fighting directly between the two superpowers.

Simile

Answer: “As cool as a cucumber” is a simile, which is a figure of speech that makes a comparison, showing similarities between two different things. The object of a simile is to spark an interesting connection in a reader's or listener's mind. Similes and metaphors are often confused with one another. The main difference between a simile and metaphor is that a simile uses the words "like" or "as" to draw a comparison and a metaphor simply states the comparison without using "like" or "as". The phrase as cool as a cucumber is first seen in a poem by John Gay in the mid-1700s.

Earthquake

Answer: The 1989 World Series, played between the Oakland Athletics and the San Francisco Giants is known as the "Earthquake Series." On October 17, 1989 just minutes before the start of Game 3, a magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck the Bay Area causing significant damage to both Oakland and San Francisco. The Loma Prieta earthquake destroyed bridges and highways, killed more than 60 people and injured thousands of others. Because of the coincidence of timing, it was the first major earthquake in the United States ever to be broadcast by live television. The game was postponed and the series resumed 10 days later.
