The present policy of the Government is but a continuation of the same progressive change by a milder process. The tribes which occupied the countries now constituting the Eastern States were annihilated or have melted away to make room for the whites. The waves of population and civilization are rolling to the westward, and we now propose to acquire the countries occupied by the red men of the South and West by a fair exchange, and, at the expense of the United States, to send them to land where their existence may be prolonged and perhaps made perpetual. Doubtless it will be painful to leave the graves of their fathers; but what do they more than our ancestors did or than our children are now doing To better their condition in an unknown land our forefathers left all that was dear in earthly objects. Our children by thousands yearly leave the land of their birth to seek new homes in distant regions. Does Humanity weep at these painful separations from everything, animate and inanimate, with which the young heart has become entwined Far from it. It is rather a source of joy that our country affords scope where our young population may range unconstrained in body or in mind, developing the power and facilities of man in their highest perfection. These remove hundreds and almost thousands of miles at their own expense, purchase the lands they occupy, and support themselves at their new homes from the moment of their arrival. Can it be cruel in this Government when, by events which it can not control, the Indian is made discontented in his ancient home to purchase his lands, to give him a new and extensive territory, to pay the expense of his removal, and support him a year in his new abode How many thousands of our own people would gladly embrace the opportunity of removing to the West on such conditions! If the offers made to the Indians were extended to them, they would be hailed with gratitude and joy.

In 2021, for the third year in a row, we had zero fatalities. While we recognise the commitment made by all our employees and contractors to achieve this milestone, we know we can always do better.Although we have had no fatalities on our managed sites in 2021, we are saddened by the loss of life at our suppliers and non-managed operations this year. Two people tragically drowned when a marine vessel delivering materials sank while en route to our Kemano operations in British Columbia, Canada. Three mariners also lost their lives in incidents on chartered vessels. At one of our non-managed joint-ventures, The Compagnie des Bauxites de Guinée SA (CBG), three workers lost their lives in three separate workplace incidents. We are working closely with our partners to understand what happened in each of these events. We will work with our contractor partners and joint venture owners to support the implementation of actions to make these facilities and operations safer and eliminate fatalities in our industry. We also felt immense sadness this year when one of our colleagues from Richards Bay Minerals (RBM) lost his life tragically to violence on his way to work.We still see some serious incidents at our own operations. A significant risk at our sites is falling objects, accounting for 38% of our potentially fatal incidents (PFIs). Focused improvements are under way to manage this critical risk. In the second half of the year, three people fell from significant heights in three separate events causing serious injury that could have resulted in a fatality. These incidents are stark reminders that we must continue to share the learnings across our business, both among our employees and our contractor partners. Over the last year, we have included contractors more in our safety efforts and are taking action across our product groups to support greater consistency in the application of our safety systems.
We know that when people reach out for help, particularly in a work environment, they are more likely to approach friends and colleagues than to use more formal support programmes. Our peer support programme equips employees at all levels of the business to support their colleagues through difficult times.
Having read the recent articles, I am in no doubt that we will be finding it so much harder to find a school administrator (or school superintendent) to any Palo Alto school or district office.We are unforgiving, expecting 24/7 service, hard to please, critical of everything, demanding and interfering. Our reputation is out there. These articles and comments are much more likely to do us harm in the long run as anyone with an ounce of competence will not want to be part of this community. Who can blame them!
+1 to @PleaseStop and @Resident.Elena Kadvany & Editors, not everything needs to bleed-to-lead! Reading this letter felt like a complete waste of my time, since I already read it back in October 2017. It's pages 23 and 24 of the Cozen report.Yes, Diorio's response is new content, but painfully predictable bordering on trite. She's defending her team and pointing out that the district shares in the blame. Hardly news-worthy. \"Principal Defends Self and Team\". Ohhhhhhhh!I get that you guys need to generate page views. But fanning the flames and stirring up the fringes is Trumpian at best, and unethical at worst. We've had enough tragedy for one community for a lifetime. Stop trying to stir up old controversies. Or at least spend more time writing about food. But don't waste our time rehashing old stories.Please focus on the facts, or go work at Fox News. PA Online's skewed/inaccurate writing creates stress in a community that could use some calm for once (while it clearly benefits you and your editors).Here are some inaccuracies to back my point up...-- \"Diorio did not inform the student and her parents of their right to file a complaint under the district's Uniform Complaint Procedure.\" The report made it clear that AP#1 tried on three different occasions and was told in all cases -by the district- that it wasn't needed. Plus, it's not clear it was Diorio's responsibility, but rather the responsibility of AP#1. Please print a correction. -- \"... states that Diorio failed to provide a female Paly student who said...\" The report doesn't say this! Again, this was AP#1's job, and the report shows again that the District and outside counsel said not to do it. Please print a correction. I get that every good story needs a villain, but you are letting your drive for a good story alter the facts.Cozen clearly points out that there were issues/breakdowns all over the place. This isn't a clean, simple story. The district, their outside counsel and the school share blame for this. But I suspect that's too complex and messy a story We are smart people. We will appreciate you more for giving us new, factually correct insights. But we'll resent you and your publication (well, maybe not a handful of us), for over simplifying this into a narrative that's written for the conspiracy seekers and knuckle draggers.Raise your standards, or leave us be. PA Online's sloppy/biased reporting is dragging this community down. I don't want my kids thinking that life is like a reality TV show. It's bad enough that we have a President telegraphing this. We don't need our local media to do it too. Please take the high ground from now on.
Choice is a significant factor influencing risk of transfer trauma. When a sense of self-determination is diminished, trauma is more likely to occur. \"There is sometimes a correlation between the level of agreement to move with the reaction to the move. Those who don't find the move necessary, or those who are adamant about wanting to remain home often take more time to adjust,\" Warchol says. In addition, says Branch-Dogans, when individuals perceive that they're being bossed around and they have a loss of choice and control, their symptoms may be exacerbated. 153554b96e
