Northern Illinois

Northern Illinois is a region generally covering the northern third of the U.S. state of Illinois.[1][2]


Northern Illinois University (NIU), in DeKalb, IL, is located at the heart of Northern Illinois and is the state’s second largest institute of higher education. According to the Regional History Center at NIU, their area of service to the northern portion of Illinois includes the 18 northernmost counties, excluding Cook, Grundy, Kankakee, Mercer and Rock Island Counties,[3] which are covered by Eastern Illinois University and Western Illinois University, respectively, and University of Illinois at Chicago.

Several major colleges can be found in the Chicago area including Illinois’ third largest state school, the University of Illinois at Chicago, as well as the University of Chicago and Northwestern University. Other notable schools include the Illinois Institute of Technology, Loyola University, DePaul University, Columbia College, Northeastern Illinois University, and Roosevelt University.

Several liberal arts schools such as Aurora University, Lewis University, North Central College, Elmhurst College, Wheaton College, Concordia University, and North Park University dot the Metropolitan Chicago landscape. Other institutions of higher education are found in Rockford, including Rockford University, Rock Valley College, Northern Illinois University-Rockford, University of Illinois College of Medicine-Rockford, a branch of Rasmussen College, and a branch of Judson University. Other colleges near the Quad Cities include Western Illinois University-Quad Cities and Augustana College.

These schools, along with several others, help to make Northern Illinois a vibrant research area. Such significant developments in science including the creation of the Atomic Bomb and the Fujita Scale were rooted in Northern Illinois institutions.


Politically, the region is quite diverse, with Cook County and Rock Island County being long-time strongholds for Democrats and north central Illinois counties (Boone, Ogle, Lee, etc.) being reliable for Republicans. Suburban Chicago counties such as DuPage, Kane, Kendall and McHenry Counties were also very reliably Republican until recently. Some counties, such as Lake, Winnebago and DeKalb, were once Republican strongholds, but are now more evenly divided. Famous politicians native to the area include Ulysses S. Grant, Ronald Reagan, J. Dennis Hastert, Donald Rumsfeld, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Mayors Richard J. Daley and Richard M. Daley.

Northern Ireland (Irish: Tuaisceart Éireann [ˈt̪ˠuəʃcəɾˠt̪ˠ ˈeːɾʲən̪ˠ] (About this sound listen);[8] Ulster-Scots: Norlin Airlann) is a part of the United Kingdom in the north-east of the island of Ireland,[9][10] variously described as a country, province or region.[11][12][13] Northern Ireland shares a border to the south and west with the Republic of Ireland. In 2011, its population was 1,810,863,[4] constituting about 30% of the island’s total population and about 3% of the UK’s population. Established by the Northern Ireland Act 1998 as part of the Good Friday Agreement, the Northern Ireland Assembly holds responsibility for a range of devolved policy matters, while other areas are reserved for the British government. Northern Ireland co-operates with the Republic of Ireland in some areas, and the Agreement granted the Republic the ability to “put forward views and proposals” with “determined efforts to resolve disagreements between the two governments”.[14]

Northern Ireland was created in 1921, when Ireland was partitioned between Northern Ireland and Southern Ireland by the Government of Ireland Act 1920. Unlike Southern Ireland, which would become the Irish Free State in 1922, the majority of Northern Ireland’s population were unionists, who wanted to remain within the United Kingdom.[15] Most of these were the Protestant descendants of colonists from Great Britain. However, a significant minority, mostly Catholics, were nationalists who wanted a united Ireland independent of British rule.[16][17][18][19] Today, the former generally see themselves as British and the latter generally see themselves as Irish, while a distinct Northern Irish or Ulster identity is claimed both by a large minority of Catholics and Protestants and by many of those who are non-aligned.[20]

For most of the 20th century, when it came into existence, Northern Ireland was marked by discrimination and hostility between these two sides in what First Minister of Northern Ireland David Trimble called a “cold house” for Catholics. In the late 1960s, conflict between state forces and chiefly Protestant unionists on the one hand, and chiefly Catholic nationalists on the other, erupted into three decades of violence known as the Troubles, which claimed over 3,500 lives and caused over 50,000 casualties.[21][22] The 1998 Good Friday Agreement was a major step in the peace process, including the decommissioning of weapons, although sectarianism and religious segregation still remain major social problems, and sporadic violence has continued.[23]

Northern Ireland has historically been the most industrialised region of Ireland. After declining as a result of the political and social turmoil of the Troubles,[24] its economy has grown significantly since the late 1990s. The initial growth came from the “peace dividend” and the links which increased trade with the Republic of Ireland, continuing with a significant increase in tourism, investment and business from around the world. Unemployment in Northern Ireland peaked at 17.2% in 1986, dropping to 6.1% for June–August 2014 and down by 1.2 percentage points over the year,[25] similar to the UK figure of 6.2%.[26] 58.2% of those unemployed had been unemployed for over a year.

Prominent artists and sportspeople from Northern Ireland include Van Morrison, Rory McIlroy, Joey Dunlop, Wayne McCullough and George Best. Some people from Northern Ireland prefer to identify as Irish (e.g., poet Seamus Heaney and actor Liam Neeson) while others prefer to identify as British (e.g. actor Kenneth Branagh). Cultural links between Northern Ireland, the rest of Ireland, and the rest of the UK are complex, with Northern Ireland sharing both the culture of Ireland and the culture of the United Kingdom. In many sports, the island of Ireland fields a single team, a notable exception being association football. Northern Ireland competes separately at the Commonwealth Games, and people from Northern Ireland may compete for either Great Britain or Ireland at the Olympic Games.

Dear diary, the captivating sound of Van Morrison’s voice still haunts me (Into the Mystic, Moon Dance, Crazy Love, etc.) and Liam Neeson is one of my very favorite actors though I’ve only seen him in one movie.  You know, diary, why I like Liam Neeson.  And Gregory Peck (To Kill a Mockingbird), and I never watched him star in Boys From Brazil nor did I see Liam Neeson in whatever movie he played the role of an evil man.  I like him, Liam Neeson, in Schindler’s List; I really like him a lot, diary.  I don’t know if Liam Neeson in real life is of Catholic or Protestant heritage, it doesn’t matter; I only know that, in Schindler’s List, I really like him.  I’m not interested in Superman and other fantasyland superheroes.  I plan to watch Schindler’s List again, not because it’s enjoyable, but because it’s such a thought-provoking eye-opener.  And so is Sophie’s Choice, my second favorite movie.  The Sound of Music is my very favorite musical movie, and Amadeus my second favorite.  I know, diary, that, all of this information seems to be unconnected nonsense but actually, it’s all connected.

(I do not watch blaxploitation movies.  I did not watch this movie, a movie starring Ice-Cube, one of the Mormon Church’s CIA’s gangsta rappers.  [Black women whose sons and boyfriends and husbands and brothers and nephews and cousins and friends are or were in the Tombs and at Rikers Island because of being negatively influenced in listening to music by gangsta rapper Ice-Cube and other rappers, flocked to the movie theaters to see this movie starring this gangsta rapper.  Will these such woman wake up and realize that Ice-Cube and Ice-T and Tyler Perry and “Reverend” TD Jake and “Reverend” Al Sharpton and Jay-Z and Beyonce and Kanye West and the KKKardashians are puppets in the hands of Mormon church CIA?!]  The ladder, the hammer [Thor’s hammer], and the raccoon: new and improved KKK/new and improved Nazi “code words”.  And so is Black Panther movie, too, from opening scene to last scene, one super duper gigantic “CODE WORD”. cc all Mormon barristers!)
(I have no criticism of this movie; quite the contrary.)

About Me.  I was supposed to go to the library to print pictures of the decorated doors (here at YWCA Brooklyn, to send to YWCA Brooklyn administration office), and here I am still sitting at my computer posting information here at my website.  It is very difficult for me to do anything other than post information here at my website, and make an important message from me announcements to theatergoers; that’s all I want to do, those two things. I didn’t even go grocery shopping. I didn’t even finish uploading all of the pictures of all of the doors!  I am at times so lacking in self-discipline.  I will finish uploading the pictures, and go to the public library, as soon as I possibly can.
About the Mormon church.  Some Mormon CIA agents love to pretend to be Irish Catholic!  Case in point:
