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.

Susan Margaret Collins (born December 7, 1952) is an American politician serving as the senior United States Senator for Maine, a seat to which she was first elected in 1996. A Republican, Collins is the chair of the Senate Special Committee on Aging and is a former chair of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. She is known also for having never missed a single Senate vote since she became senator, which by September 2015 had reached a 6,000 consecutive voting streak. She is the most senior Republican woman in the Senate and dean of Maine’s congressional delegation. She will be the only Republican representing New England in the 116th Congress. Collins has been described as the Senate’s most moderate Republican. She often positions herself as a pivotal vote, thus becoming a focal point during highly watched legislation.
Born in Caribou, Maine, Collins is a graduate of St. Lawrence University. Beginning her career as a staff assistant for Senator William Cohen in 1975, she later became staff director of the Oversight of Government Management Subcommittee of the Committee on Governmental Affairs (which later became the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs) in 1981.
She was then appointed as the Commissioner of the Maine Department of Professional and Financial Regulation by Governor John R. McKernan, Jr. in 1987. In 1992 she was appointed by President George H. W. Bush as the director of the Small Business Administration’s regional office in Boston. Staying in Massachusetts, Collins became that state’s Deputy State Treasurer in 1993. After moving back to Maine in 1994, Collins became the Republican nominee for governor in the 1994 general election. Becoming the first woman to become the nominee of a major party for Governor of Maine, Collins finished third in a four-way race with 23% of the vote. After her bid for governor in 1994, Collins became the founding director of the Center for Family Business at Husson University. Collins was first elected to the Senate in 1996. She has been re-elected three times, in 2002, 2008, and 2014.
In rural places, ranch families have a tough decision to make when their kids finish elementary school and the nearest high school is in town an hour or two away. This is the story of the Wright family, and their decision to split up: with mom and the kids moving to town and dad working the ranch alone.

David Rockefeller’s eldest son David Jr. and his wife Susan, along with Jonathan Rendell, Deputy Chairman of Christie’s Americas, discuss the recent, record-breaking successful Rockefeller family auction hosted by Christie’s New York, as well as continuing legacy of the Rockefeller family’s philanthropy.
In spring 2018, Christie’s New York hosted the “auction of the century,” selling the entire contents of David and Peggy Rockefeller’s art collection for philanthropic purposes, raising a record-breaking $835 million — the highest total ever for any single-owner collection at auction and the most significant charitable auction in history. Mr. Rendell, David Jr. and Susan discuss the thrilling experience of the auction itself, the plan for dispersal of the sale proceeds to selected charities, and the innovative ways in which the current generations of Rockefellers are upholding the family’s dedication to philanthropy — a rare opportunity for an insider’s conversation with two members of this storied American family.
