Therefore, I would suggest you to live in the north because students who are attending the university all live in the north side of Chicago.
The rents in the north side will be a little bit higher though.

No, I have no contacts there anymore but you can contact free apartment rental agency to help you find an apartment that fits your requirements and needs. I asked them to help me find my apartment when living in Chicago. they have a really nice service and I like it a lot. Below is the info.

How nice, I love Chicago. I visited there many times when I attended school in St. Louis. It was like 4-5 hrs drive.

I can still feel the excitement of my first time driving to Chicago. Seeing Sears Tower, Jon Hancock and other part of skyline gradually stand out from the cloud is one of the most magical moments in life.

I visited Frank Lloyd Wright’s studio in Oak Park and then go to the observatory at the top of John Hancock that day. I then had dinner at The Cheese Cake Factory….what a nice day!

Looks like the Xinzhuang line is three years behind schedule!

From the Taiwan News:

"The Taipei MRT Department confirmed that completion of the infrastructure project, aimed at relieving traffic congestion in crowded Xinzhuang, will be delayed by 31 months, a delay that would cost the local government about NT$2.5 billion."

高鐵台中到高雄試車 時速300公里

聯合新聞網 記者唐秀麗/嘉義縣報導 2006-05-31 03:56


台灣高鐵七○○t型列車昨天冒雨完成台中到高雄路段時速三百公里的系統整合測試,使工程人員士氣大振。今天端午節將再度試車,首次開放彰化縣社頭鄉路段供民眾觀看。高鐵人員說,預計六月底將進行台北到台中路段時速三百公里的測試。

台灣高鐵公司表示,高鐵列車昨天上午在高鐵台中縣烏日基地完成列車功能檢測之後,隨即進行連續三次系統整合測試。首次測試時速為二百八十公里,第二次二百九十公里,最後是三百公里。

高鐵人員說,在第三次的測試過程中,列車在彰化縣社頭鄉附近提高時速至三百公里,行經高鐵彰化、雲林、嘉義、台南、高雄縣燕巢鄉附近。在此區間內除遇彎道或坡路,列車均以時速三百公里的速度行駛,最後停靠高鐵左營站;列車隨即又以三百公里的時速,駛返高鐵台中站,整個測試過程順利。

高鐵人員說,今天適逢端午假日,欲觀看列車測試的民眾,可於上午十時到十二時前往彰化縣社頭鄉「銀河鐵道餐廳」,地點在社頭鄉協和村後路巷,或直接與台灣高鐵彰化地區專員周淑娟(○九五八○○九二○一)

CKS Airport MRT (Taoyuan)

Found some station renderings of the section from Dayuan (first station past CKS Airport) to Jhongli. The architect of all six stations, J.M. Lin, was recently the 2006 merit award by the New York chapter of the AIA.

Thanks taiwan ren for those pics. I think all of those six station designs (from Dayuan to Jhongli) are much much better than the cable car stations in Kaoshiung, and also better than some of the planned Taipei MRT stations. I can only hope all future Taiwanese public buildings/infrustractures are designed to this standard.

-G'day-

〈獨家〉高鐵測試緊鑼密鼓 每日來回千里

記者:張惠民 攝影:黃建國 報導

從去年底高鐵試車,大陣仗請來政治人物、原始股東試乘看看之後,大半年過去,高鐵的整合,究竟趕不趕得及今年10月的通車計畫。tvbs實際上車,看到目前台灣新幹線株式會社的工程人員,正加緊測試腳步,尤其在今天,總算達成全線300公里的計畫。

才早上7點多,工作人員就已經全副武裝,準備上車待命。距離高鐵通車只剩4個月,不加緊腳步可不行。

從台中出發,往南開,再往北開,每天來來往往幾乎都要1千公里。tvbs記者張惠民:「駕駛艙中所有人聚精會神,不發一語,因為這個時候,台灣高鐵要從北往南,朝時速300公里的測試目標前進。」

電腦螢幕上,297、298、299,一直到300,每公里的推進,對工作人員來說,都是挑戰。車窗外的景色高速掠過,車廂中密密麻麻的電線與儀器,隨時鎖定列車行進每個細節。

台灣高鐵工程師羅振權:「這個測試最主要是測量脫係數,就是說車子會不會脫軌的一個係數,的一個測試,那這個係數如果愈低的話,當然是愈安全。」

連車頂狀態,都有攝影機嚴密監控。而為了因應包括地震、車禍等所有突發狀況,工程人員還必須模擬不同的測試情境。羅振權:「車子裡面我們用每一個15公斤的鐵塊,一個一個疊起來,然後就是把整個車子模擬成我們坐滿了乘客,然後用最高速度300公里去跑 ,然後做緊急煞車,尤其做的那一天還下大雨,我們想說會不會打滑怎麼樣,結果測下來還不錯。」

每個測試都是考驗,而為了10月通車的期限,整個系統整合必須盡早完成試驗。
