    The Danger of Silence | Clint Smith

    “We spend so much time listening to the things people are saying that we rarely pay attention to the things they don’t,” says slam poet and teacher Clint Smith. A short, powerful piece from the heart, about finding the courage to speak up against ignorance and injustice.

    Chicago History

    “It is hopeless for the occasional visitor to try to keep up with Chicago. She outgrows his prophecies faster than he can make them.” – Mark Twain, 1883

    Chicago was only 46 years old when Mark Twain wrote those words, but it had already grown more than 100-fold, from a small trading post at the mouth of the Chicago River into one of the nation’s largest cities, and it wasn’t about to stop. Over the next 20 years, it would quadruple in population, amazing the rest of the world with its ability to repeatedly reinvent itself.

    And it still hasn’t stopped. Today, Chicago has become a global city, a thriving center of international trade and commerce, and a place where people of every nationality come to pursue the American dream.

    Chicago is home to…

     237 square miles of land

    An estimated 2,695,598 residents

    Dozens of cultural institutions, historical sites and museums

    More than 200 theaters

    Nearly 200 art galleries

    More than 7,300 restaurants

    77 community areas containing more than 100 neighborhoods

    26 miles of lakefront

    15 miles of bathing beaches

    36 annual parades

    18 miles of lakefront bicycle paths

    552 parks

    We are hosting this English Camp to give Thai people a chance to travel to Chicago, Illinois U.S.A.               This trip is most suitable for teenagers and adults. Our idea is to give Thai people a chance to experience American culture while on an affordable vacation and at the same time improving their English language skills.

    MAY 12, 1930 The Adler Planetarium, the first planetarium in the western hemisphere, opened to the public. Chicago business leader Max Adler contributed funds for the museum’s construction, a Zeiss projector, and the Mensing Collection of astronomical instruments. South Park Commissioners agreed to assume operating costs. Adler dedicated the institution as a “classroom under the heavens” for popular astronomy education. Philip Fox was the first Director of the Adler (until 1937).

    2015 In April, the Adler celebrated the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 13 mission and re-opened Mission Moon, an interactive exhibition that tells the story of America’s first steps to the Moon, featuring artifacts from Captain Jim Lovell’s personal collection. NASA astronauts and flight directors joined Adler Trustees and donors in commemorating this historical moment.

    The Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago—one of the largest science museums in the world is home to more than 400,000 square feet of hands-on exhibits designed to spark scientific inquiry and creativity.

    Between the World War II submarine, five-story movie screen, 40-foot tornado and the 727, you might wonder how we fit this much discovery inside one museum.

    The knowledge and memories you’ll gain on the tours, experiences and events at MSI are just as unforgettable as our exhibits. Our facilitators, experts, special guests and volunteers bring their subjects to life.

    The Ledge brings an exhilarating new experience to the tower. Opened in 1974, the Skydeck attracts more than 1.7 million visitors annually who enjoy views of up to 50 miles and four states. Now, The Ledge dares visitors to attempt a new Chicago experience: stand on The Ledge and feel the city from 103 floors over Wacker Drive and the Chicago River.

    The Ledge

    During the 1870’s, there was a group of Chinese immigrants working in Chicago. The Chinese laborers started coming over to work on the completion of transcontinental railroad. They recruited over 80% of Chinese for laborers. Once the railroad was completed in 1869, the Chinese then moved on to find more work, some of the workers going to Chicago. The anti Chinese act that was put in force stopped the immigration of Chinese from the Pacific Coast to the east. Discrimination against the Chinese increased during 1861. This was because of the declining economic conditions that spread throughout the United States. The depression hit, this left many people out of jobs.

    World-renowned, Brookfield Zoo inspires guests through extraordinary connections with animals, nature and each other. Set within a 216-acre nature park, the zoo have captivated and educated visitors since 1934. It is home to 2,000 + animal residents and is also an accredited arboretum.

    Historic Navy Pier® is the #1 leisure destination in the Midwest, welcoming nearly nine million visitors annually. Navy Pier has enjoyed a remarkable evolution. Originally designed for shipping and recreational purposes, the facility has evolved into a premiere entertainment and exposition center.Detailing its successful rebirth as one of Chicago’s most important historical landmarks, the following timeline illustrates the challenges and changes faced by Navy Pier over the years. Our history continues to take shape as we build excitement and reimagine Navy Pier for our second century.

    Like no other aquarium in the world

    Shedd combines the best of early 20th-century “age of aquariums” characteristics—a diverse, global animal collection surrounded by eye-popping architecture—with 21st-century advances in animal care, environments and interpretation. Excellence and innovation are Shedd traditions, and they began with the founder.

    Mr. Shedd’s gift

    John G. Shedd wanted to give back to the city in which he had risen from stock boy to president of department store giant Marshall Field & Company. Because every great city in the United States and Europe had a fine aquarium, he decided that Chicago must have the biggest and best.

    Mr. Shedd imagined a stately marble building and a collection of aquatic animals from around the world that would complement the two world-class institutions already in Grant Park, the Field Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago.
