Enlarge Image Vantas Drones are increasingly becoming a go-to for both hobbyists and the workforce, with racing and aircraft inspection being two prime examples of how this technology is becoming a big thing. Tokyo’s Vantan High School is now ensuring the next generation is abreast of this burgeoning tech by offering a three-year course on drones. The course offers more than just an understanding of how to pilot a drone, also providing lessons in maintenance, aviation laws and computer programming when the need arises for firmware updates. While hobbyists may feel this is the perfect opportunity for them, Vantan is offering it to students who have legitimate UAV vocation aspirations. It’ll teach what could end up being a truly valuable skill set, with demand for drone operators and engineers in the workforce set to rise in Japan in the next five years, according to Impress research . It’s not the only new happening in the drone world — drone maker DJI earlier this month opened a drone arena in South Korea , a facility specifically designed for UAV enthusiasts to stretch their wings in. selection processIn late July, Amazon announced it’d be trialling drone deliveries throughout the UK.

Nonetheless,.ur faith assures us that God is always communicating his will to us. We reflect on God specifically calling individuals in the Old and New Testaments to do specific things or to become something or someone new, and wonder how we will know what God calls us to do. Anne Lamont, in her autobiographical book travelling Mercies, recalls a sermon about gods leading: Pastor Veronica said that when she prays for direction, one spot of illumination always appears just beyond her feet, a circle of light into which she can step. Numbers do not necessarily match those in definitions. When we encourage young people to think about their future, we too often limit their vision to a specific career. In Protestantism the call from God to devote one’s life to him by joining the clergy is often covered by the English equivalent term “ call “, whereas in Roman Catholicism “vocation” is still used. However, we usually use “Vocation” to mean a call to the consecrated, religious or priestly life. But a vocation is more than an ordinary call. To become a priest, you need to feel that you have been “called” to the ministry directly by God. In former times it was the custom for noble families to place their younger sons in the seminary or some monastery without considering the tastes or qualifications of the candidates, and it is not difficult to see how disastrous this kind of recruiting was to the sacerdotal and religious life .
