The NBC Tower is an office tower on the Near North Side of Chicago, Illinois, United States located at 454 North Columbus Drive (455 North Cityfront Plaza is also used as a vanity address for the building) in downtown Chicago's Magnificent Mile area. Completed in 1989, the 37-story building reaches a height of 627 feet (191 m). NBC's Chicago offices, studios, and owned-and-operated station WMAQ-TV are located here as of 1989 and on October 1, 1989, WMAQ-TV broadcast their first newscast at 10 pm that evening at their new home, NBC Tower with the then-weeknight news team of Ron Magers, Carol Marin, John Coleman and Mark Giangreco. Later, Telemundo O&O WSNS-TV since their 2002 purchase by NBC. Formerly its former radio sister WMAQ/WSCR was located here. NBC's former Chicago FM property, WKQX and its sister station WLUP will move their studios to the NBC Tower in the summer of 2016.The design, by Adrian D. Smith of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, is considered one of the finest reproductions of the Art Deco style. It was inspired by 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City, NBC's headquarters. The tower is further enhanced by the use of limestone piers and recessed tinted glass with granite spandrels. The building takes additional cues from the nearby landmark Tribune Tower with the use of flying buttresses. A 130ft broadcast tower and spire tops the skyscraper. WMAQ and WSNS have STL and satellite facilities on the roof; the STLs link to WMAQ and WSNS's transmitter facilities atop the Willis Tower. WMAQ radio/WSCR studios and STL were located in the building until 2006 when they relocated to Two Prudential Plaza.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!
by Warren Breslin
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!
I am a former Chicago Police Officer and a former prosecutor who was back then on the front line of interrogation for more than ten years. I now use that past experience in the defense of those who have been or would otherwise become the object of such interrogation. Since 1982 I have been successfully defending clients charged with all criminal offenses, including murder, robbery, theft, battery, drugs and weapons offenses.
Warren J. Breslin Law Offices, in consultation with veteran colleagues and a team of experienced investigators and experts, work united to gain unbeatable professional advantage in the defense of my clients. It is my intention to share with you some practical information that may influence your awareness and behavior in future police encounters.
No matter what criminal charges may follow in any given case, it seems that the vast majority of arrests involve traffic stops. The police may be pursuing an escaping felon or merely following a hunch while issuing a routine minor traffic citation. A youthful driver or suspicious vehicle may be curbed just to be "checked out." Good law abiding citizens are oftentimes caught up in criminal investigations during seemingly casual encounters with police officers.
When a police officer asks a stopped motorist whether he had been drinking, where he had been earlier, where he is going, etc., the officer is not making harmless conversation. He is gathering evidence against the motorist. When a police officer pursues a line of questioning of an individual in any type of case, one can expect that he is being targeted by the officer in an investigation. Providing answers to questions that would normally seem not to be incriminating may prove to be key evidence in a prosecutors case, a statement that provides corroborative evidence to an allegation or that provides a necessary motive or opportunity for a crime.
The majority of criminal convictions result from arrestees who provide evidence against themselves. There is no better aid to the police in building a criminal case, and there is no worse enemy of the suspect than the suspect himself and his accomplice.
Everyone knows about his Miranda rights from television and movies. Everyone knows the "good cop/bad cop" routine during questioning. But few exercise their rights. People still wrongly believe that the police may go easier on them if they confess or relinquish other evidence against themselves, or that the police will abandon their investigation against them if they offer an excuse or explanation or otherwise show their cooperation.
Most feel compelled to speak, submit to tests, consent to searches, and waive their constitutional rights generally. Know your rights, and rarely waive them! Be assertive! Politely decline to answer questions, and talk with your lawyer before providing the police with any information.
"You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say or do can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have a right to have an attorney present during any questioning. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you free of charge, before any interrogation." - Rights required to be advised to detainees before any custodial interrogation per:
Miranda v. Arizona
86 S.Ct. 1602
Decided June 13, 1966.
•There can be no questioning if a defendant indicates in any manner and at any stage of interrogation process that he wishes to consult with attorney before speaking. U.S.C.A.Const. Amend. 6
•Police may not question an individual if he is alone and indicates in any manner that he does not wish to be interrogated.
•Mere fact that an accused may have answered some questions or volunteered some statements on his own does not deprive him of the right to refrain from answering any further inquiries until he has consulted with an attorney and thereafter consents to be questioned. U.S.C.A.Const. Amends. 5, 6.
•Privilege against self-incrimination is in part an individual's substantive right to a private enclave where he may lead a private life. U.S.C.A.Const. Amends. 5.
•Fifth Amendment privilege is available outside of criminal court proceedings and serves to protect persons in all settings in which their freedom of action is curtailed from being compelled to incriminate themselves. U.S.C.A.Const. Amend. 5.
JUVENILES (UNDER AGE 17) HAVE EVEN MORE PROTECTION. See discussion in People v. Lee, 335 Ill.App.3d 659, 781 N.E.2d 310, 269 Ill. Dec. 513 (2002).
"DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL OR DRUGS" CASES have become increasingly more sophisticated for both prosecution and defense. Most police cars and interrogation rooms are equipped with video cameras that capture both visual and audio events of the arrest. Proper defense of your case requires your attorney to subpoena video and audio recordings from the arresting agency before the tapes are recycled for later usage. Gathering reports, breathalyzer or lab records, and all other evidentiary material in a timely manner is essential to a successful defense. And if you have been charged with a DUI out of state, you should retain Illinois counsel to confer with your out of state lawyer to help protect your Illinois license from any reciprocal suspension or revocation. The following will hopefully answer some frequently asked questions and concerns regarding Illinois DUIs:
ALWAYS, WITHOUT EXCEPTION:
•Have your valid driver's license, valid insurance card, and valid registration card immediately accessible to hand to the officer. Fumbling for documents is evidence of intoxication.
•Do not admit to drinking alcohol or using any drugs (even when prescribed) if asked by the officer. Keep your conversation to a minimum. He will report on your speech.
•Do not say where you are coming from, or where you are going to, or how long you have been out, or anything else about your private affairs. Simply decline to answer the questions.
•Do not agree to step out of your vehicle to perform "field sobriety tests." At this time there is no consequence to your Illinois driving privileges for your refusal to take all of the field tests.
If you follow the above preliminary guidelines, the officer might still arrest you, but his grounds to support his decision have been severely limited to his uncorroborated smell of alcohol about you, observation of perhaps bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, awkward mannerisms and your driving maneuver causing the traffic stop. Such limited evidence greatly enhances your probability for an acquittal.
Once arrested, the officer must request, with proper consequential warnings, that you submit to a breath analysis to determine your blood/alcohol level. He may also, at his option, request that you submit to blood and urine tests. A refusal of any of the requested tests, even if you took or agreed to take one of them, will be reported to activate a refusal suspension of your Illinois driving privileges. That does not necessarily mean that any suspension will take effect. There are many legal challenges which may rescind the summary suspension. It is generally recommended throughout the legal profession that you refuse such testing, despite the possible suspension consequences; unless you are very sure that your blood/alcohol level is under .08, which is the presumptive level of intoxication in Illinois. If you are under 21, Illinois' legal drinking age, you should refuse testing if there is any amount of alcohol in your system due to "Zero Tolerance" suspension consequences and a "Consumption of Alcohol by a Minor" misdemeanor charge that may follow. You should also know that any amount of cannabis or controlled substance in your blood will convict you of DUI. If you have smoked or ingested cannabis within the past couple of weeks (cannabis has been detected in heavy users for up to 45 days following usage) you should always refuse a blood or urine test. Controlled substances generally leave your system within 72 hours. Alcohol generally leaves your system overnight. Cannabis and controlled substances are not detected by a breath analysis machine.
If your lifestyle includes regular situations where you will be driving following a drinking event, it is suggested that you purchase a portable breath tester, such as an AlcoHawk available online or at a novelty store for about $100. Although the test results are inaccurate and inadmissible in court (as are those of portable units used by the police), they should give you a better awareness of your condition. Remember, however, that your BAC is rising for up to an hour after drinking.
WARRANTLESS SEARCHES AND SEIZURES IN ALL CRIMINAL CASES CAN BE AVOIDED
A police officer may want to take a minor traffic stop or other encounter to a higher level of investigation. Do not admit to having weapons or drugs in your vehicle, in your residence, or on your person if an officer should ask you. Do not consent to the search of your vehicle, your residence or your person if an officer should ask you. Police officers may threaten to detain you to have a canine unit respond for dogs to sniff you or your vehicle. They may threaten to detain you until they get a warrant to search you and your property. Remember that officers need probable cause to get a warrant. Just voice your objection to any search. An hour or so of your time being detained is far better than the consequences of uncertain court action. An illegal search can be dealt with in court, unless you have waived your right to privacy by consenting to the search.
It should not matter to you that you have nothing to hide. On principle alone, you should not waive your constitutional rights to allow officers to rummage through your property. Besides, do you really know that your friend or relative did not leave contraband in your vehicle on some prior occasion? Do you really know that the police will not say that they found something where it was not?
YOU MAY BE CRIMINALLY LIABLE FOR THE CRIME OF ANOTHER
You should also know that you may be criminally liable for the criminal actions of companions if you facilitate their commission of a crime. The Illinois statute on accountability states that a defendant is legally accountable for the actions of another when either before or during the commission of an offense and with the intent to promote or facilitate the offense, he solicits, aids, abets, agrees or attempts to aid the other person in the planning or commission of the offense. But you may not be held accountable for a crime merely by being present, even when you know that a crime is being committed.
GIVE NO INFORMATION - NOT FALSE INFORMATION
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS, and exercise them. Remember to give a police officer no information, not false information. Providing false information to a police officer is a crime. Of course, as a practical matter, you must provide booking identification information for bonding purposes, but do not talk about anything else: just give your name, rank, and serial number, so to speak.
DO NOT RESIST EVEN AN UNLAWFUL ARREST
Pulling away from an arresting officer or stepping back from the officer during his attempt to arrest you may cause additional charges to be lodged against you.
The following statement is provided for you to present to a detaining police officer. It is printed on the backside of my business cards that you may carry for your convenience:
I KNOW MY RIGHTS
My lawyer has told me not to talk to anyone about what may be a case against me, not to answer questions and not to reply to accusations. I do not agree to perform any tests of any kind and do not give my consent for you to search me, my car, my home or any of my property. It is not that I am guilty or intend to obstruct a police investigation; I simply will not waive any of my constitutional rights without my lawyer present. Call him.

The Palmer Mansion, constructed 1882–1885 at 1350 N. Lake Shore Drive, was once the largest private residence in Chicago, Illinois, located in the Near North Side neighborhood and facing Lake Michigan. It was designed by architects Henry Ives Cobb and Charles Sumner Frost of the firm Cobb and Frost and built for Bertha and Potter Palmer. Palmer was a prominent Chicago businessman who was responsible for much of the development of State Street. The construction of the Palmer Mansion on Lake Shore Drive established the "Gold Coast" neighborhood, still one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the city. The mansion was demolished in 1950.HistoryConstructionAt the time of the construction of the mansion, Potter Palmer was already responsible for much of the development of State Street. After the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, the buildings on State Street were destroyed, and Palmer was yet again responsible for its redevelopment. Construction on the mansion began in 1882, and its exterior work was completed in 1883. However, interior decoration would continue for another two years before the building was entirely complete.Henry Ives Cobb and Charles Frost were chosen as the architects for the mansion. The interiors were completed under the direction of architect Joseph Lyman Silsbee. John Newquist, who had already worked with Palmer on numerous other constructions, was chosen as the contractor and stair constructer. Although it was originally budgeted at $90,000, after five years of construction, the mansion would cost the Palmers more than a million dollars.
The James Charnley Residence is located in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood, at 1365 North Astor Street. The house is now called the Charnley–Persky House and is operated as a museum and organization headquarters by The Society of Architectural Historians (SAH). An Adler & Sullivan design, the townhouse is the work of Louis Sullivan and a young Frank Lloyd Wright, who was a junior draftsman in Sullivan's office at the time. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.The house was completed in 1892 for Charnley, a Chicago lumberman who lived in the house with his family for about a decade. The building was later owned by members of the Waller family, who invested in real estate. The house was purchased by the architectural firm of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill in 1986 and subsequently restored. Seymour Persky purchased the house in 1995 and donated it to the SAH who renamed the building to the Charnley–Persky House to honor their benefactor.The plain brick facade with simple ornamentation was quite different from other houses on the Gold Coast, but the interior is distinguished by rich ornamentation that is typical of Sullivan's work.
Kevin Ashtari learned a couple things in the U.S. Navy: how to replace the explosives under the ejection seat of an EA-6B Prowler and how to roast a perfect batch of coffee beans on a gas-powered barbecue grill. Every step he takes to get it from raw green beans into that cup is small-scale, lovingly methodical, and hands-on. He invested in a custom-built 12-kilo roaster from the U.S. Roaster Corporation that takes up one corner of the space. "I was looking for a manual roaster without a computer," he says. Every day or two he roasts a new, small batch. Asado Coffee Roasters

Dziennik "New York Times" poinformował o decyzji prezydenta pierwszostronicowym tytułem głównym "Uznajemy Polskę!" (ang. We Recognize Poland!).Pod koniec października przybył do Waszyngtonu książę Kazimierz Lubomirski z zadaniem otwarcia Poselstwa Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej w stolicy USA, które – w 1929, z okazji 150 rocznicy śmierci Kazimierza Pułaskiego – podniesiono do rangi ambasady. Wcześniej, bo w czerwcu 1919, do Nowego Jorku przypłynął (wraz z gronem 11 współpracowników) Konstanty Buszczyński, który na początku lipca zaczął urzędować jako konsul generalny.Planowano otworzyć też placówki konsularne w Chicago, San Francisco, Pittsburghu i Buffalo. Ostatecznie powstały konsulaty generalne w Nowym Jorku i Chicago, konsulat w Pittsburgu oraz wicekonsulaty w Buffalo i San Francisco. Ten ostatni był placówką tymczasową, utworzoną w związku z reemigracją Polaków, przez Harbin i Władywostok z bolszewickiej Rosji. Po jego likwidacji w styczniu 1921 otwarto konsulat w Detroit.
