The Hummingbird Whisperer, a researcher at UCLA, says, “having a crappy day? Who cares? Hummingbirds.” And why this song, why now? Finding free classic literature online isn’t hard if you know where to look. Also, a brief history of book burning.

The ubiquitous hit song “Despacito” has tied Mariah Careys 16-week record at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Billboard announced Monday, Aug. 28, 2017, that Luis Fonsis song and Careys duet with Boyz II Men, “One Sweet Day,” are the longest-running No. 1 songs in the 59-year history of the charts.
