British Columbia

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.

British Columbia (BC; French: Colombie-Britannique) is the westernmost province of Canada, located between the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains. With an estimated population of 4.817 million as of 2017, it is Canada’s third-most populous province.
The first British settlement in the area was Fort Victoria, established in 1843, which gave rise to the City of Victoria, at first the capital of the separate Colony of Vancouver Island. Subsequently, on the mainland, the Colony of British Columbia (1858–1866) was founded by Richard Clement Moody and the Royal Engineers, Columbia Detachment, in response to the Fraser Canyon Gold Rush. Moody was Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works for the Colony and the first Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia: he was hand-picked by the Colonial Office in London to transform British Columbia into the British Empire’s “bulwark in the farthest west”, and “to found a second England on the shores of the Pacific”. Moody selected the site for and founded the original capital of British Columbia, New Westminster, established the Cariboo Road and Stanley Park, and designed the first version of the Coat of arms of British Columbia. Port Moody is named after him.In 1866, Vancouver Island became part of the colony of British Columbia, and Victoria became the united colony’s capital. In 1871, British Columbia became the sixth province of Canada. Its Latin motto is Splendor sine occasu (“Splendour without Diminishment”).
The capital of British Columbia remains Victoria, the fifteenth-largest metropolitan region in Canada, named for the Queen who created the original European colonies. The largest city is Vancouver, the third-largest metropolitan area in Canada, the largest in Western Canada, and the second-largest in the Pacific Northwest. In October 2013, British Columbia had an estimated population of 4,606,371 (about 2.5 million of whom were in Greater Vancouver). The province is currently governed by the British Columbia New Democratic Party in a minority government supported by the Green Party of British Columbia, led by John Horgan, who became premier as a result of a no-confidence motion on June 29, 2017.
British Columbia evolved from British possessions that were established in what is now British Columbia by 1871. First Nations, the original inhabitants of the land, have a history of at least 10,000 years in the area. Today there are few treaties and the question of Aboriginal Title, long ignored, has become a legal and political question of frequent debate as a result of recent court actions. Notably, the Tsilhqot’in Nation has established Aboriginal title to a portion of their territory, as a result of the recent Supreme Court of Canada decision (William [Tsilhqot’in Nation] v. British Columbia).

Full Bio:
Tim Shropshire is a dynamic comedian who brings a refreshing dose of clean and hilariously funny material to any event. A native of Fayetteville, N.C, Tim was always labeled the class clown throughout his middle and high school career. He had the gift of making people laugh and everyone around him knew it. Tim grew up in a family of high spirited and jovial personalities which allowed him to develop in an environment that allowed for positive thinking and comedic expressions.

When Tim went off to college, it was not long before his label of class clown took root. He was known around campus as the practical joker and the guy that everyone wanted to be around. Tim played football in college, and one year while sitting out a season, he made the decision to develop a stronger relationship with God.

Tim later became an active member of Fellowship of Christian Athletes and joined Evangel Word Fellowship Church of Greensboro, NC. At Evangel Word Fellowship Church while Tim was still searching for the purpose and calling on his life, he read a book from his Pastor, the late Bishop Otis Locket, Sr., entitled “Understanding Your Divine Calling.” This book changed his life forever. Although Tim knew that he was funny and could make people laugh, it wasn’t until reading this book that he discovered his passion for comedy. The peak of this revelation birthed Tim Shrop Comedy, and after this came much success.

Tim has traveled the country and overseas sharing his multidimensional comedic talents with the world. Using, “Comedy the way God likes it” as his slogan, Tim has stayed true to his faith while using unique comedic methods such as acting as fictional characters, hosting his own talk / variety show, producing online comedic videos and performing stand-up routines to bring the funny to people of various backgrounds.

Talented, gifted, creative and hysterical were the words used to described Comedian Tim Shropshire by one of America’s leading motivational speakers, Les Brown, after watching him perform. “He will make your event special and memorable,” Brown went on to say.

In December 2012, Tim worked with national Comedian Akinutnde to shoot a pilot film for networks. This opportunity allowed Tim to work with other national Comics for the first time and allowed him to get a feel for Television. Tim later went on to assist Akintunde in kicking off The Rebirth of Comedy: 20/20 National Tour in Greensboro, NC.

In 2013 Tim produced his first comedy tour headlining each show. His tour, “Tim Shrop UnChained” made stops in St. Croix, Virgin Islands, Atlanta, Ga, Willingboro, NJ, and various cities in NC, such as Charlotte, Fayetteville and Durham just to name a few. In the fall of 2014, Tim released his first stand-up comedy CD entitled “My British Wife and I”. Tim is currently promoting his new comedy special while performing throughout the country. Tim and his family currently live in Greensboro, NC.
