Improper integral of a function

I want to study the nature of an improper integral. I separate the integral from 0 to 1 and from 1 to ∞. The first integral is divergent (I proved that it is equivalent to Riemann integral, which is divergent in the neighborhood of 0). But I didn't find how I can prove the convergence or divergence of the second one. The integral can be found in attach file.
Thank you

It certainly looks like the integral blows up at multiples of $\pi$, i.e. where

It is not divergent at x=0, since $log(1+x)^2\approx x^2$ there. However as romsek points out it will blow up at multiples of $\pi$.
