http://www.grandcanyonairlines.com | Whether walking in the footsteps of Sammy Davis Junior and Dean Martin, or gazing into a mile-deep abyss, history and geology make a fascinating combination. From man-made pyramids and volcanos, to Mother Nature’s greatest work of art, the contrasts are nothing short of spectacular. There’s nothing wrong with slot machines and Poker, they’re what the Strip was built on. It’s just that there’s a lot more beyond what one might expect Vegas to be all about.

The Tennessee Trail of Tears story is one of removal camps and detachment routes. Cherokee driven from their homes in Georgia and North Carolina arrived in Tennessee, where they waited to be organized into “detachments” to take them to Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma), a home they never wanted. Even so, Tennessee’s legacy today remains rich in Cherokee culture. At the time the Treaty of New Echota was signed, southeast Tennessee was not only the location of the seat of the Cherokee government in Red Clay, but also the home of about 2,500 Cherokee. Prominent leaders Hair Principal Chief John Ross Conrad, James Brown, 1828-1866 Jesse Bushyhead, Lewis Ross, and Principal Chief John Ross all had homes in Tennessee. They lived in communities scattered across the hills and valleys and along the rivers and creeks. Most Cherokee farmed the fertile soils. Some owned prosperous plantations, stores, taverns, and ferries. Throughout the years, several mission schools, such as Brainerd, near Chattanooga, provided a place for Cherokee children to learn to read and write in English and to attend Christian church services. In many respects, Cherokee Tennessee Trail of Tears The “Sun Circle” at Ross’s Landing, Chattanooga Artwork by Harry Fenn The circular Cherokee design to the left symbolizes the holy sun in the form of sacred fire sent by the Creator. The central cross depicts the four logs that keep the sacred fire alive. It is said that the Cherokee will survive as long as the sacred fire burns. Ferry at Chattanooga In 1816, brothers John and Lewis Ross established the settlement of Ross’s Landing. It consisted of a ferry, warehouse, and ferry landing site We are now about to take our final leave and kind farewell to our native land the country that the Great Spirit gave our Fathers, we are on the eve of leaving that Country that gave us birth. It is the land of our fathers…our sons, and it is (with sorrow) that we are forced by the authority of the white man to quit the scenes of our childhood, but stern necessity says we must go, and we bid a final farewell to it and all we hold dear East of the Father of Waters, the Majestic Mississippi -Letter by George Hicks Dated November 4, 1838 to John Ross Traveling through Tennessee The detachment of the people are very loth [sic] to go on, and unusually slow in preparing for starting each morning. I am not surprised at this because they are moving not from choice to an unknown region not desired by them. Fort Cass 1838 historic map of the Fort Cass area Highlighted in blue are the removal camps that were spread across the valley. communities did not differ much from those of their American neighbors. In 1838, though, Cherokee life was about to change. Beginning in late May 1838, thousands of Cherokee, enslaved African Americans, and Creek were taken from their homes by troops and held at removal camps near one of three emigrating depots. Two of these camps were located in the vicinity of Cherokee communities in Tennessee: Ross’s Landing, now known as Chattanooga, and Fort Cass in presentday Charleston. During removal, Fort Cass served as the center for the largest emigrating depot. Removal camps in this area were spread out over a 12- by 4-mile area, extending from Charleston southward. Approximately 7,000 Cherokees were held at these camps prior to their departure to Indian Territory, but poor conditions at the camps led to rapid outbreaks of disease, and many perished before the journey began. How many more families would lose their loved ones before reaching their new homes? -Detachment Conductor Elijah Hicks, October 24, 1838 The Cherokee used many different routes to reach their new home in the West—most started in Tennessee. In June, three groups of Cherokee left Ross’s landing to begin their journey to Indian Territory. Dire conditions, disease, and deaths plagued the last two groups. As a result, Principal Chief John Ross and other Cherokee leaders petitioned the US government to allow the Cherokee to control the remainder of their removal. Permission was granted and the remaining Cherokee were organized into detachments of about 1,000 each.

Society’s Grand Challenges Insights from Psychological Science As a society, we face many challenges, and we depend on science to help. Whether we seek to halt global climate change, cure devastating diseases, reduce crime, end poverty, diminish health disparities, or achieve vitality in old age, advances in modern science are expected to help. The science of psychology contributes to deeper understanding of these and many other societal challenges. The American Psychological Association is devoting significant resources and energy to bringing the best of psychological science to the forefront. In partnership with other fields of science, solutions will be found. This booklet is one in a series, examining the insights of psychological science into challenges facing society. Each booklet focuses on a key challenge, provides a sampling of what we currently know, and suggests promising avenues for future research. The published work of scientists is cited, so that readers can learn more on their own. We indeed face many challenges, and together we can solve them! Alan E. Kazdin 2008 President American Psychological Association 2 3 GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE Most scientists recognize that human behavior is the main cause of today’s climate crisis. Understanding that behavior, and learning how to change it, is one of our best hopes for a solution. Whether the goal is to reduce carbon emissions or to help vulnerable populations deal with rising sea levels and changing weather patterns, it is clear that values, beliefs, thoughts, and social relationships are key. According to the 2007 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, however, human behavior is one of the least well understood components of the climate system. That is where the science of psychology can help. By itself, psychology cannot stop global warming or deal entirely with its consequences. Other scientific disciplines provide the expertise to model climate change, build more efficient power plants, and predict the impact of carbon taxes on economic development. What psychology can provide is an e x pl a nat ion for why people choose to i nst a l l energ yef f icient appl ia nces, reduce gasoline consumption or support government policies aimed at addressing climate change — and why, despite the best of intentions, they often do not.

Jan 24, 2014 ... To determine if the Metro-North Railroad (Metro-North) used American ... Metro- North, a subsidiary of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority ... To determine if the Metro-North Railroad (Metro-North) used American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Recovery Act) funds efficiently and for authorized purposes, and whether the funds were properly monitored to prevent fraud, waste and abuse. Our audit covered the period April 30, 2009 to June 30, 2012. Background Metro-North, a subsidiary of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), has four projects funded by the Recovery Act, namely, Poughkeepsie Station Building-Doors/Window ($4.6 million), Grand Central Terminal Elevators ($7.7 million), Grand Central Terminal Facilities Rehabilitation ($22.7 million), and Tarrytown Station Improvement ($37.3 million). Key Finding • Our review of Metro-North’s monitoring of employees paid with Recovery Act funds found that Metro-North officials could better monitor their employees to ensure that Recovery Act funds are used for authorized purposes and instances of fraud, waste and abuse are mitigated. MetroNorth officials should improve the timekeeping method used for conductors to better ensure they are actually working the hours they are paid for, require that all overtime is pre-approved and justified prior to being worked, and consider whether it is the most efficient practice and whether government funds are being wasted by paying conductors 2 hours and 40 minutes of overtime every day for indirect tasks such as changing their clothes, washing up, and traveling to and from the project site. Also, an unannounced visit to the Tarrytown Station found one conductor was not at his assigned post when a train made a stop. Key Recommendations • Monitor employees’ time and attendance to ensure that they are only paid for actual hours worked. • Establish agency-wide policies and procedures that govern the use, pre-approval and justification of overtime. • Ensure the most efficient practices are in place and government funds are not wasted by paying overtime for indirect tasks such as employees changing their clothes, washing up and traveling to and from the project site. • Monitor conductors to make sure that they are on site and working at their assigned posts to better ensure the safety of passengers, contract workers and other Metro-North employees when trains stop at a station during ongoing track work.
