I was working with the humanities librarian (I had a great mentor in Susan Barribeau ) and I worked closely in Special Collections, and it blew my mind that librarians got to spend time with these amazing items and could help make them accessible to other people. It deepened my understanding of the role of poetry in an information landscape: how it circulates, how it reaches new readers. So I decided to pursue an MLIS (also at UW Madison) and continue to follow my interests. When I was in library school I did a semester-long practicum at The Bubbler , which was Madison Public Library's then brand new kind-of makerspace...a lot more than a makerspace...super arts focused (instead of more fabrication focused) and that opened things up for me. People need access to creativity as much as they need access to information, and libraries are really well-positioned to facilitate that.

The up-and-coming Wolvesa renaissance in the making forged by Saunders' steady handhad to regroup, from the top of the organization all the way to the new kid from Apple Valley, Minnesota, less than 20 miles to the south. "He wanted to bring me back home and have me be part of his team and part of his organization," Jones said. "That meant a lot to me, just because of him believing in me. It was definitely tough; not a situation you wish upon anybody." The Wolves needed a new leader and hired former Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau as coach and president of basketball operations in 2016. Just like that, in less than a year, Jones' basketball world had spun off its axis. From a star at Duke, in the bastion of stability in Durham, North Carolina, to NBA limbo before his career had even gotten off the ground. The friend and mentor who'd acquired him on draft night was now gone, and there was a new sheriff in towna grumpy, gravelly-voiced, take-no-prisoners sheriff.

It took longer than expected for the cruiserweight division to catch on, but the last two weeks have been great for 205 Live and the division's segments on WWE Raw. The feud between Jack Gallagher and Neville took a big step forward Monday night during their contract signing. Both men were good on the mic and the crowd seemed to be invested. We have also seen a new storyline develop between Akira Tozawa and The Brian Kendrick. The former cruiserweight champion wanted to be a mentor to Tozawa , but the Japanese wanted nothing to do with him. All of this and more was addressed Tuesday night. Let's take a look at everything that happened on this week's episode of 205 Live. Begin Slideshow

He is my mentor, my therapist. We talk a lot and he would say it was fine. He did not know any different. His normal was not normal. I said it was not as it should be.

The Lakers' challenges have been considerable since Buss' death four years ago last Saturdayparticularly the luxury tax, revenue sharing and Bryant's injuries. Jeanie Buss chose to keep giving Jim the chance that their father wanted for him, even though none other than NBA Commissioner Adam Silver urged her three years ago to be aggressive in wielding her power because the league office trusted her with it. Although Jeanie has allowed Johnson to join the inner circle now, the family influence will be felt with or without Jim in the future. Jerry had been pushing Joey and Jesse to get more of a voice in basketball operations, and Joey spent the full 2006-07 season shadowing Jackson's coaching staff while Jim was assigned to mentor Jesse in scouting. Both Joey (now with full autonomy over the successful minor league D-Fenders) and Jesse (promoted in 2015 to Lakers assistant general manager) were involved in Jeanie's hiring of Johnson.

It's low-key but critical. Whether they're working from inside an organization (in direct management or as a mentor) or from outside (as an executive coach), good coaches share one basic quality.

For Trump, faith is about being a winner . Trumps Christianity, I would argue, blends New Thought ideas of individual achievement with a vision of Christian libertarianism. Unlike his mentor Peale , who was married for over 63 years and lived a scandal-free life, Trumps past includes multiple divorces and accounts of adultery. Also, American exceptionalism is at the heart of Trumps Christianity. As theologian Stanley Hauerwas puts it, Christianity in Peales hands was closer to a set of beliefs a follower could make up to suit their desires. Trump has adopted this strategy and applies it to the country. This link between Christianity and nationalism was evident at Trumps inauguration when prosperity gospel minister Paula White said in her invocation, We recognize that every good and every perfect gift comes from you and the United States of America is your gift, for which we proclaim gratitude.

But a year later, she was baptized before network TV cameras by a most improbable mentor: The Rev. Philip Flip Benham, the leader of Operation Rescue, now known as Operation Save America. McCorvey joined the cause and staff of Benham, who had befriended her when the anti-abortion group moved next door to the abortion clinic where she was working. McCorvey also said that her religious conversion led her to give up her lover, Connie Gonzales. She said the relationship turned platonic in the early 1990s and that once she became a Christian she believed homosexuality was wrong. She recounted her evangelical conversion and stand against abortion in the January 1998 book Won by Love, which ends with McCorvey happily involved with Operation Rescue. But by August of that year, she had changed faiths to Catholicism. And though she was still against abortion, she had left Operation Rescue, saying she had reservations about the group's confrontational style.

An executive at a major company dies, alone, in his darkened office: a heart attack. He was an associate of the year or some such, a real hard-charging type. A letter from a health spa in central Europe sent by the man's mentor, the CEO, sits unopened on his desk. Starkly shot—with crisp close ups, slow pans, slower reveals, and a perfectly framed collage of screens pumping out stock data as the film's title appears above them—and modestly tense, and a teensy bit funny, this prologue sets the stage for the film's 146 minutes. Turns out that the CEO has quit, citing a need to take better care of himself. Good for him; bad for the company, which is in the midst of a merger and has a number of—well, irregularities on the books. Lockhart (Dane DeHaan), no stranger to fiscal irregularities and shady shortcuts himself, is tasked by the board with finding the CEO and bringing him back to the United States so that the kinks can be worked out or a sacrificial lamb—either Lockhart or the CEO, either way—can be offered up to the SEC.

When you come to a piece about self-discovery, it's very difficult to leave yourself out. So one of the things Barry was very generous in and very brave in is putting himself in the film as well. One of the most striking things about the film is the very tender depiction of the mentor to the young young Chiron, he is a drug dealer.

As someone who loves stories, I know that everybody has one. The undocumented migrant worker in California has one. The Trump supporter in rural Alabama has one. The union worker in Pennsylvania has one too. I feel compelled to find these narratives and absorb them like a sponge. Everyone's reality is different, but all of the trials and tribulations Americans experience culminate in their choices. "We are more alike, my friends, than we are unalike." Maya Angelou's words ring truer now than ever. I hope that solutions can be extracted from her assurance. I want these words to mean compassion's survival. I wish them to signify Americans' saving grace. One week after the election, I Skyped a Duke faculty member and mentor with whom I am close. Something he said struck me. He told me that he believed all of my education and training thus far has been preparing me for this unique moment in history and the political world that lies ahead.

Emotional safety, the researchers concluded, would be key in attracting girls to lead. In 2015, a study by Girls Leadership found only half of teen girls identify as brave . In a study of college students, Jennifer Lawless and Richard Fox showed that young women are less likely than young men ever to have considered running for office and receive significantly less encouragement from their parents to do so (girls are also more actively discouraged from pursuing elected office). The American University study, called Girls Just Wanna Not Run , uncovered a sizable gender gap in political ambition that originates in girlhood. Lawless and Fox found that girls who grow up in families that encourage them to run for elected office are more likely to believe they can and to plan on it. US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) credits her grandmother as her first political mentor.

That's for sure. What I didn't realize for years is that the Idea Phase is so close to NOTHING that nobody who has actually done anything cares about your idea. You've probably only progressed about one centimeter on an entire football field at that point. We all want a mentor. We personally connect with a specific influencer through the articles they've written, or the podcasts they've produced, or the videos they create... that person speaks to us. They get us. We think that influencers will care about us the same way we care about them. But here's the unfortunate truth... while you think that you're asking something unique and original, people who've achieved some success get variations of the same five questions all day, every day, 24/7/365. And it always ends with some permutation of, "How do I get started?" Sigh. That. The "getting started" part is the part that only YOU can figure out.
