HOW COME I NEVER SEEM TO HAVE ENOUGH TIME? Procrastination. Boredom. Multitasking. Time management. We all think about and worry about time — all the … time. Creighton faculty and alumni examine our obsession with time and how we can make the most of it. Page 14.FAITH & FABLES / FAITH AND FABLES Greg Carlson, S.J., looks at how faith and fables are intertwined and how fables can help us understand the Gospels. Fr. Carlson also illustrates how authors have changed the meanings of fables to fit their particular philosophical slant, using “The Grasshopper and the Ant.” Page 18.LOOKING FOR FUZZY SOLUTIONS A group of Creighton faculty and students combines a mathematical theory — known as “fuzzy logic” — with the study of politics and the power of technology to examine everything from international elections to human trafficking. Page 24.WE ARE MORE THAN SOULS STUCK IN BODIES Tucked away in the Creighton Archives, dozens of ancient relics of saints were recently found. Read how these small, delicate items were catalogued and properly preserved through a process that went all the way to Rome. Page 28.THE HEART OF CARE Through a unique interdisciplinary and holistic approach, Creighton faculty and students are addressing the healthcare needs of the poor and underserved in Omaha through the Porto Urgent Care Clinic at the Heart Ministry Center.
