    throughout many experiences in my life and have been a testament to me that patience is a virtue and an attribute of Jesus Christ. As disciples of Jesus Christ and members of His church we need to be patient in our trials, with others, and finally patient with ourselves. Patience is often described as the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset. We live in a world of instant gratification. If we want something, we often want it now. Fast food, text messaging, social media, the list goes on and on – all these tools and services connect us and give us what we want within seconds. Thus making the virtue of patience even more necessary, important, and in turn somewhat unpleasant. President Dieter F. Uchtdorf states, “Patience—the ability to put our desires on hold for a time—is a precious and rare virtue… Nevertheless, without patience, we cannot please God; we cannot become perfect. Indeed, patience is a purifying process that refines understanding, deepens happiness, focuses action, and offers hope for peace” (6). Patience is part of perfection, it is a Christ-like attribute. It can be described as a gateway virtue or characteristic that once applied and understood, can bless our lives in many ways. Having a patient and positive attitude can help strengthen other aspects of our lives that we are struggling to develop or master; “When you are patient, you hold up under pressure and are able to face adversity calmly and…

    Cpt Case

    5 % decrease in Units Packed per Hour (UPH) for both singles paths. Without the CPT chase, the decrease in UPH would not exist and therefore we would be able to pack out more items, making more money. However for each item that misses a CPT, it costs, on average, $2.85 to upgrade the shipment. Because of this I performed two analyses to see the impact of our CPT Chase. The first analysis I performed was an analysis looking at the profitability of sending out additional packages vs. the potential…

    The Other Side of the Lens Peering through the viewfinder, I adjusted the focal length of the lens. The girls flitted within the frame, fueled by a sugar-induced hysteria. All five cradled ice cream cones, exuberantly embracing each other with sticky hands. Crisp pine trees lined the path through camp, framing the elated chaos. With a click, I stopped down the aperture, extending the depth of field and drawing each member of my wacky sixth grade group into focus. Hitting the shutter, I captured…

    for capturing the sweeping arc of a bright display or large pillars and curtains over a wide landscape. A fast lens refers to the maximum aperture of the lens or the amount of light that your lens will let in. This is usually designated by an “f-number” – for example f/2.8. The smaller the f-number, the bigger the maximum aperture is for your lens and the more light that will be collected in the image. A lens set at f/2.8 will allow your more light into the camera than will a lens set at f/4.…

    Today, I decided to play with my own camera of the ESO Canon. I thought that I have learned manual setting on my mentor’s Leica camera. So I wanted to try with my own camera, since it came with manual settings. First, I tried set different ISO, aperture, and shutter-speed numbers. I have to be honest that it wasn’t easy, because I couldn’t tell if is too dark or too bright. I just had to do my best to guess the ISO and shutter speed. With my first try, the first picture was too dark, so I turn…

    The running joke about the Super Hornet is that it is a “jack of all trades, and master of none”. The truth is that the Hornet and specifically the Super Hornet has been required to replace the F-14 Tomcat, the S-3 Viking and the A-6 Intruder. That required the Super Hornet to effectively satisfy the mission sets of three aircraft. Boeing was responsible for ensuring that the airframe could handle that challenge, and succeeded in most cases. What Boeing was not contracted to solve, however, was…
