MENDHAM, N.J. - Sister Monica Clare felt the calling to become a nun when she was just 7 years old. However, realizing her destiny took decades; she became a nun when she was 46.

That destiny now has her spreading faith on social media. "I believe that there is a loving God and that God wants us to be happy," Sister Monica Clare said.

She now lives modestly with other nuns in rural Mendham, New Jersey, at the convent of St. John Baptist, an Episcopal religious order for women that dates back to 1913.

She manages the order's website and social media. Some sisters resisted sharing their faith in such a modern way. "The sisters were very wary of social media because one thing about being brothers and sisters, especially in the Episcopal Church, is they're very, very private," Sister Monica Clare said.

Giving school buses green lights improves student safety, reduces fuel consumption: new study
student safety and environmental benefits, according to a new study released Tuesday.Applied Information, a developer of connected, intelligent transportation system solutions, hooked up two school buses, one diesel, and the other propane powered, with Connected Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) technology in Alpharetta, Georgia.The technology allowed the school buses to request green light priority at 62 traffic signals along their routes as they each served students in the Fulton County School System.Data showed that both school buses had "a clear and measurable reduction" in travel time, according to firm Kimley-Horn, which prepared the study report."These solutions applied across the national fleet of approximately 500,000 school buses would prove significant time and fuel savings as well as substantial reductions in CO2 emissions," said Bryan Mulligan, President of Applied Information.Officials also say the technology can help improve student behavior aboard the buses and address the school bus driver shortage that about 86% of the nation’s school districts are experiencing."The pilot showed we can use this technology to make our fleet more efficient and serve more students safely in a shorter amount of time, all while reducing our fuel bill and helping the environment," said Trey Stow, Director of Transportation – Operations for Fulton County Schools.Stow said that the district school buses use roughly around 25,000 gallons of fuel a week.
