    o seed the database, we'll pull the events we used earlier. We'll loop over them using an ES6 for...of loop.

    Grab the events and loop over them to save using mongoose.

     * Seed the database
    function seedEvents(req, res) {
      // create some events
      const events = [
        { name: 'Basketball', description: 'Throwing into a basket.' },
        { name: 'Swimming', description: 'Michael Phelps is the fast fish.' },
        { name: 'Weightlifting', description: 'Lifting heavy things up' },
        { name: 'Ping Pong', description: 'Super fast paddles' }
      // use the Event model to insert/save
      for (event of events) {
        var newEvent = new Event(event);
      // seeded!
      res.send('Database seeded!');
