|CHICAGO Philippe Coutinho Brazil Jersey , Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- Evanston is a small city only an hour's drive north of Chicago, where Northwestern University (NU) is located. Although it was considered part of the 'Greater Chicago' area, Evanston and NU manage to remain untouched by Chicago's surging violence.
In 2016, Chicago witnessed 754 homicides and 4,338 shooting victims, most of which were reported in the city's southern and western areas, according to a research by Chicago Tribune. It was the city's most violent year since the mid-1990s. 2017 gave little hope for relief Pele Brazil Jersey , at the year's midpoint, 323 people were killed, even more than same period of last year.
While some universities located in the southern parts of Chicago have made extra efforts in keeping their campus safe, students at NU have felt comfortable with the measures their university has in place.
Jiayan Shi, a sophomore at NU, said she felt quite safe on campus. "It was mostly because the city of Evanston itself is very safe," she said. "I feel the university has abundant security personnel."
Another NU student Paulinho Brazil Jersey , Hallie, also didn't worry much about campus security. "I know there has been some isolated incidents, but I feel safe when I walk around campus," Hallie told Xinhua. "There are emergency phone boxes, which I think are very helpful in campus."
Emergency phone boxes are somewhat standard at Chicago's universities. Most of them have a blue light on top and an emergency button, as well as speakers to communicate with police in emergency. Most students at NU learn about them on their first day at universities.
"I know that there are emergency boxes almost everywhere on the roads, which can make emergency call to police. Once you meet any danger Oscar Brazil Jersey , you can press the button on the box, which would then contact the university police directly and give them your location," Shi said.
Though located in a safe neighbourhood, NU does not hold back on implementing necessary security measures, some of which are to ensure students could travel safely even at night.
"The University provides services for students who have to go out late," Shi said. "You can ask university police to walk with you after dark if you feel necessary." The campus, especially the dormitories Neymar Brazil Jersey , are also guarded by police and security personnel day and night, Shi told Xinhua.
NU is one of the leading universities in the U.S. It is composed of 12 schools and colleges, hosting more than 17,000 students and more than 3,400 faculty members. NU is also notoriously renowned for its low acceptance rate. In 2017 only 9 percent of the more than 37,000 undergraduate applicants were accepted.
NU is also the most important employer in Evanston, and hires more than 9 Miranda Brazil Jersey ,000 people in a city of less than 80,000 population. In fact Evanston itself was named after NU's founder John Evans.
According to the university, almost 10 percents of its undergraduate students and more than 21 percents of its graduate students are international students.
Due to culture differences and potential language difficulties, international students are among the most vulnerable group on campus. To better protect them, NU gives safety lectures to all international students soon after their arrival.
"We had a safety education for international students. Experts taught us international students as well as Chinese students some safety measures," Shi said.
The experts would introduce the environment of the university and mark out thing to keep in mind in order to stay safe. They would also offer common safety advises like keeping awareness of surroundings while walking and when using cash.
NU also keeps updating all its members on important security issues. Hollie said she would receive email from the university on recent crimes happening near the university campus.
"It's important to know all the safety measures and installations," Shi said. "In the end Marquinhos Brazil Jersey , you are the one that keeps yourself safe."

Archaeologist have found that Neanderthal man used the hide from the animals they hunted, as well as everything else. This fur and hide was, hopefully, scrapped clean and allowed to dry. This type of rawhide was very simplistically processed for clothing. And, therefore, became brittle, stiff and Marcelo Grohe Brazil Jersey , eventually, rotted. Scientist say at some point, man or woman, figured out that rubbing fat onto the hide helped create a more flexible and water resistant material. Which is probably the first leather preservation process invented. Early uses for leather were clothing and tools, but the nomadic tribes used larger hides for shelters. It is theorized that the fires used inside these shelters, for warmth and cooking, created smoke which absorbed into the hide aiding in its longevity. Probably accidental but when burning green leaves and branches the smoke created a vapor with a substance which later became formaldehyde tanning or smoking. A natural process Luiz Gustavo Brazil Jersey , believe originate with the Hebrews, is bark extract. Bark extract became vegetable tanning and is still applied to certain types of leathers. Known in ancient times but unclear when discovered to work was preservation by dehydrating using alum, a type of salt which is a natural mineral found widely in nature and particularly near volcanoes. Interestingly, a tannery was uncovered among the ruins of Pompeii with similar equipment used centuries after it was found.
