There's no doubt about the value mentors can provide to the lives of students. A good mentor can show a young person how to identify and accomplish goals, connect with important people, serve as a role model and open up opportunities. How students acquire mentors can be a matter of their own initiative or built in as a requirement for programs , schools or community colleges . For a female engineering student in college, having a mentor who's also a woman can make a big difference in keeping her in the currently male dominated field. Ed Yong writes in The Atlantic about research conducted by Nilanjana Dasgupta at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. Dasgupta found that women who were paired with female mentors were more likely to stay in engineering vs. those who were paired with male mentors or no mentors at all. Yong writes about her findings in The Atlantic: She sees mentors as “social vaccines.

Was not an easy opponent in the first round, obviously. He's an uncomfortable opponent that already he had some good victories this year," added Nadal. Title-holder Djokovic strolled through his opener against Marcel Granollers of Spain, advancing 6-3, 6-4, 6-2. With 1999 French Open champion Agassi in the players box for the first time after agreeing a short-term coaching role, Djokovic experienced some trouble against the world number 77, being broken four times. "It's great to have Andre Agassi as coach and as a mentor. I will try to learn as much as I can from him," said Djokovic. The Serb, seeking to become the first man in the Open era to win all four majors on at least two occasions, will take on Portugal's Joao Sousa next. "Coming to this tournament for first time as a defending champion gave me, probably more than anything else, relief, because the anticipation and the pressure and expectations that I had also for myself but all the other people around me in the last three, four, five years before 2016 Roland Garros trophy was really big," added Djokovic.

It is also the academic mentor for the School of Engineering & Technology. Akshay Munjal, president of the university, said that its MBA was designed after mapping industry demands and practices. Since these demands are dynamic, international tie-ups help improve the scope of the programme. "In engineering, the critical question right now is, how do you make it an employable degree and that is the issue that we are addressing. We have a lot of industry partners so that straight from engineering schools, you get a relevant job," he said. Every year the university reviews the curriculum. For the university, partner schools act as great sounding boards and providers of learning tools. "Partner schools tell us what works for them and they bring depth to our courses," he added. While they cover 50 per cent of the cost, students tend to hesitate to pay the fee at partner schools.

According to Obama , Brzezinski is a personal mentor of his, an “outstanding friend” from whom he has learned immensely. In light of this knowledge, is it any surprise that we saw so many conflicts erupt out of nowhere during Obama’s presidency? On February 7, 2014, the BBC published a transcript of a bugged phone conversation between Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt. In that phone call, the representatives were discussing who they wanted to place in the Ukrainian government following a coup that ousted Russian-aligned president Viktor Yanukovych. Lo and behold, Brzezinski himself advocated taking over Ukraine in his 1998 book, The Grand Chessboard, stating Ukraine was “a new and important space on the Eurasian chessboard…a geopolitical pivot because its very existence as an independent country (means) Russia ceases to be a Eurasian empire.

"I need to take a different approach in terms of energy management. I need to prioritise. I felt like I need to explore new things." Djokovic, without a tour title since January, parted company with Boris Becker in December and mentor Marian Vajda earlier this month. He said it did not take much time to feel a new vibe with Agassi. "I connected with him very quickly. I saw that there were similarities in the ways we think," said Djokovic. "Most of his career, he worked thinking winning on court was the only thing that would satisfy him and make him happy. But he was not. He described this very well, saying he did not like tennis, that he often had the feeling if was being forced to play tennis. "Maybe I don't have the exact same feeling but I can refer to it." — Reuters

Years had passed since my last visit, and everything had changed so much. I was the only one from the previous contest,” she said. Mentor matters Chumakova and her husband in 2013 moved from their hometown Zaporizhzhya to Sevastopol, a city in Crimea. Even though Russia annexed peninsula in 2014, Chumakova continued to see herself as a Ukrainian athlete. But she couldnt find a personal trainer in Sevastopol, and in 2015 she started working with Alexander Kyslyi, who lived in Kyiv. After two years of working with Kyslyi remotely, Chumakova and her husband decided to move to Kyiv. Now, Chumakova says, her coach can make sure she is working out properly, and can monitor even the smallest changes in her body. “Without a trainer, you cannot be objective. Sometimes you feel overweight, not beautiful, and you can’t even look at yourself in the mirror,” she says.

Avengers just don't understand! Still, having Tony Stark as a superhero mentor definitely has its perks -- like a kick-ass, high-tech Spidey suit Tobey Maguire could only dream of!

3 percent rate last season while scoring 15.6 points per game. Markkanen isn't ready to play extended minutes in the NBA just yet and will experience a lot of the same growing pains Nowitzki had during his early years in the league; being too skinny, not tough enough to compete for rebounds, etc. But he has the perfect mentor in Nowitzki and the perfect head coach in Rick Carlisle to properly develop his game over his rookie and sophomore years in the NBA. Zack Rosenblatt of the Tucson Star also likes the idea of Markkanen going to Dallas to sit and learn from the best mentor he could possible have: Markkanen is the best shooter in this draft class and has a possibility to jump up draft boards if any team is looking for the next Porzingis or Nikola Jokic , but the Mavericks will have their fingers crossed on draft day that Markkanen falls to them at No. 9, coincidentally the same spot that Nowitzki was drafted in back in the 1998 draft.
