Quote of the Day

"Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you." – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Fun Facts

Most natural diamonds are formed at high temperature and pressure at depths of 140 to 190 kilometers (87 to 118 mi) in the Earth's mantle. Carbon-containing minerals provide the carbon source, and the growth occurs over periods from 1 billion to 3.3 billion years (25% to 75% of the age of the Earth).

To locate what policies are assigned to you:

(An email notification will be sent from the program once the assignment has been made, you can follow that link.)

2. Refer to the "Home" tab and scroll down to the "Policies Awaiting Acknowledgment" section.

3. Click on the header to access your assigned policy documents.  Open each policy*, read through it and click the blue button on the bottom  I have read and understood this policy.
