How to set DNS nameservers in Ubuntu Server 18.04 - TechRepublic
Log into your 18.04 server and look for that /etc/network/interfaces file. Guess what? It's there. However, you can configure it all you want, but it'll have zero effect. Why? Netplan. That's the new kid on the Ubuntu networking block. It is through Netplan that we now configure our DNS nameservers.

The Insect Apocalypse Is Here - The New York Times
In the United States, scientists recently found the population of monarch butterflies fell by 90 percent in the last 20 years, a loss of 900 million individuals; the rusty-patched bumblebee, which once lived in 28 states, dropped by 87 percent over the same period

The current worldwide loss of biodiversity is popularly known as the sixth extinction: the sixth time in world history that a large number of species have disappeared in unusually rapid succession, caused this time not by asteroids or ice ages but by humans.

The German study found that, measured simply by weight, the overall abundance of flying insects in German nature reserves had decreased by 75 percent over just 27 years. If you looked at midsummer population peaks, the drop was 82 percent.

What we’re losing is not just the diversity part of biodiversity, but the bio part: life in sheer quantity. While I was writing this article, scientists learned that the world’s largest king penguin colony shrank by 88 percent in 35 years, that more than 97 percent of the bluefin tuna that once lived in the ocean are gone.
