Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.

Learning by listening is a great way to:
– increases imagination and understanding
– improves your listening skills
– improves your own spoken accent
– learn while on the move
– reduce eye strain

Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

Duke University Chapel is a chapel located at the center of the campus of Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, United States. It is an ecumenical Christian chapel and the center of religion at Duke, and has connections to the United Methodist Church. Constructed from 1930 to 1932, the Chapel seats about 1,800 people and stands 210 feet (64 m) tall, making it one of the tallest buildings in Durham County. It is built in the Collegiate Gothic style, characterized by its large stones, pointed arches, and ribbed vaults. It has a 50-bell carillon and three pipe organs, one with 5,033 pipes and another with 6,900 pipes.The Chapel stands at the center of the university, on the highest ridge of Duke University’s West Campus. Although plans for a chapel were first made in April 1925, the cornerstone was not laid until October 22, 1930. When it was completed in 1935 at a cost of $2.3 million, the Chapel was the last of the original buildings to be built on West Campus. It was first used during Commencement in 1932, and was formally dedicated on June 2, 1935. Stained-glass windows and other details were installed at a later date. The chapel was designed by Julian Abele, chief designer for the Philadelphia firm of Horace Trumbauer.
As of 2015 the dean of the Chapel was Luke Powery. On May 11, 2015 the Chapel closed for a year due to necessary restoration work on the ceiling. The Chapel reopened May 11, 2016.

DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA — A police sergeant in Durham North Carolina who shot a robbery suspect who was holding a woman hostage at a McDonald’s is still on leave as the shooting is investigated, but Durham police now know the suspect in the June 18 incident was unarmed.

The suspect, 26-year-old Dennis Palm of Durham, allegedly told the officers responding to a 911 call that he was armed and would harm a woman he was holding hostage. As the suspect held the woman with one arm around her throat, Sergeant Price fired his service weapon at the suspect, striking Palm in the jaw.
The suspect was later discharged from hospital and charged with a variety of offenses including kidnapping and robbery. Sgt. Pryce said he made the decision to shoot because he believed the suspect was armed and would follow through with his threats.

Somehow, the officer managed to both not hit the hostage and only disable the assailant, ending a tense hostage situation in a relatively peaceful manner. Durham’s police chief José Lopez told reporters that his officers are faced with making such life-and-death decisions on a daily basis.
