Mentor is a 2006 drama film directed by David Langlitz and written by William Whitehurst, exploring the relationship between a Pulitzer Prize–winning author and his protégée. The film stars Rutger Hauer, Matthew Davis, Dagmara Dominczyk, Susan Misner. Matthew Davis stars as Carter, introduced as a thirtysomething professor at a mediocre college. Through flashbacks, we learn about Carter's time as a promising writer enrolled in an exclusive grad school class taught by Sanford Pollard, a hard-drinking, hard-driving, brilliant but abrasive writer whose career has stalled since winning a Pulitzer Prize decades ago. Julia is Sanford's graduate assistant as well as his lover. Sanford and Julia "adopt" the young, eager Carter and expose him to the world of wealth and drugs. Carter travels with them to Sanford's beach house, where he and Julia become lovers. In the present, Carter has become a shadow of his former promise, a lethargic teacher, an alcoholic, excessive smoker, lacking the ability to sustain relationships.
Like Sanford, he has worked his way through a series of graduate assistant girlfriends, we watch as he allows his relationship with Susan to wither away. Carter is on a reckless path; the film jumps back and forth from the present to ten years earlier, as Carter wrestles with the unresolved emotions he felt with Sanford and Julia. After attending Sanford's funeral, Carter returns to the beach house, where Sanford's will is being read. There he again meets Julia, older but still appealing, they discover that Sanford has left the two of them his entire estate; the film ends ambiguously, with Carter and Julia driving off into the night in the Porsche, Sanford's, but, now theirs in "joint custody". Rutger Hauer as Sanford Pollard Matthew Davis as Carter Dagmara Dominczyk as Julia Susan Misner as Marilyn Conner Matt Servitto as Howard Peter Scolari as Jonathan Parks Lynn Chen as Terry Valentine Isabel Glasser as Margaret Burger Lawrence Pressman as Kendal Ronald Guttman as Interviewer Carrie Yaeger as Nurse Mentor was first presented at the Tribeca Film Festival in the spring of 2006.
It was accepted at the Maryland Film Festival on May 13, 2006. As of January 2007, the film has not been released; the movie makes liberal use of flashback techniques, introducing the characters in 1997 at the end of their friendship, moving to the present day alternating between to sequential timelines, one in 1997 the other a decade later. The film was shot in Maryland. Johns Hopkins University doubled for both colleges, St. Michaels, Maryland was the location for all of the vacation scenes, various locations in Baltimore served as the background to the story.

Mentorship is a relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. The mentor may be older or younger than the person being mentored, but he or she must have a certain area of expertise, it is a learning and development partnership between someone with vast experience and someone who wants to learn. Interaction with an expert may be necessary to gain proficiency with/in cultural tools. Mentorship experience and relationship structure affect the "amount of psychosocial support, career guidance, role modeling, communication that occurs in the mentoring relationships in which the protégés and mentors engaged."The person in receipt of mentorship may be referred to as a protégé, a protégée, an apprentice or, in the 2000s, a mentee. The mentor may be referred to a rabbi. "Mentoring" is a process that always involves communication and is relationship-based, but its precise definition is elusive, with more than 50 definitions in use.
One definition of the many that have been proposed, is Mentoring is a process for the informal transmission of knowledge, social capital, the psychosocial support perceived by the recipient as relevant to work, career, or professional development. Mentoring in Europe has existed since at least Ancient Greek times. Since the 1970s it has spread in the United States in training contexts, with important historical links to the movement advancing workplace equity for women and minorities, it has been described as "an innovation in American management"; the roots of the practice are lost in antiquity. The word itself was inspired by the character of Mentor in Homer's Odyssey. Though the actual Mentor in the story is a somewhat ineffective old man, the goddess Athena takes on his appearance in order to guide young Telemachus in his time of difficulty. Significant systems of mentorship include the guru–disciple tradition practiced in Hinduism and Buddhism, the discipleship system practiced by Rabbinical Judaism and the Christian church, apprenticing under the medieval guild system.
In the United States, advocates for workplace equity in the second half of the twentieth century popularized the term "mentor" and concept of career mentorship as part of a larger social capital lexicon which includes terms such as glass ceiling, bamboo ceiling, role model, gatekeeper—serving to identify and address the problems barring non-dominant groups from professional success. Mainstream business literature subsequently adopted the terms and concepts, promoting them as pathways to success for all career climbers. In 1970, these terms were not in the general American vocabulary; the European Mentoring and Coaching Council called the EMCC, is the leading global body in terms of creating and maintaining a range of industry standard frameworks and processes across the mentoring and related supervision and coaching fields e.g. a code of practice for those practising mentoring. The focus of mentoring is to develop the whole person and so the techniques are broad and require wisdom in order to be used appropriately.
A 1995 study of mentoring techniques most used in business found that the five most used techniques among mentors were: Accompanying: making a commitment in a caring way, which involves taking part in the learning process side-by-side with the learner. Sowing: mentors are confronted with the difficulty of preparing the learner before he or she is ready to change. Sowing is necessary when you know that what you say may not be understood or acceptable to learners at first but will make sense and have value to the mentee when the situation requires it. Catalyzing: when change reaches a critical level of pressure, learning can escalate. Here the mentor chooses to plunge the learner right into change, provoking a different way of thinking, a change in identity or a re-ordering of values. Showing: this is making something understandable, or using your own example to demonstrate a skill or activity. You show what you are talking about, you show by your own behavior. Harvesting: here the mentor focuses on "picking the ripe fruit": it is used to create awareness of what was learned by experience and to draw conclusions.
The key questions here are: "What have you learned?", "How useful is it?". Different techniques may be used by mentors according to the situation and the mindset of the mentee, the techniques used in modern organizations can be found in ancient education systems, from the Socratic technique of harvesting to the accompaniment method of learning used in the apprenticeship of itinerant cathedral builders during the Middle Ages. Leadership authors Jim Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner advise mentors to look for "teachable moments" in order to "expand or realize the potentialities of the people in the organizations they lead" and underline that personal credibility is as essential to quality mentoring as skill. Multiple mentors: A new and upcoming trend is having multiple mentors; this can be helpful. Having more than one mentor will widen the knowledge of the person being mentored. There are different mentors. Profession or trade mentor: This is someone, in the trade/profession you are entering, they know the trends, important changes and new practices that you should know to stay at the top of your career.

Mentor, a Siemens Business is a US-based electronic design automation multinational corporation for electrical engineering and electronics. The company was founded in 1981 and sold to Siemens in 2017. Mentor Graphics was founded in 1981 by Gerry Langeler and Dave Moffenbeier; the first round of money, worth $1 million, came from Sutter Hill and Venrock Associates. The next round was $2 million from five venture capital firms, in April 1983 a third round raised an additional $7 million. Mentor Graphics was one of the first companies to attract venture capital to Oregon. Apollo Computer workstations were chosen as the initial hardware platform. Based in Chelmsford, Apollo was less than a year old and had only announced itself to the public a few weeks prior to when the founders of Mentor Graphics began their initial meetings; when Mentor entered the CAE market the company had two technical differentiators: the first was the software - Mentor and Daisy each had software with different strengths and weaknesses.
The second, was the hardware - Mentor ran all programs on the Apollo workstation, while Daisy and Valid each built their own hardware. By the late 1980s, all EDA companies abandoned proprietary hardware in favor of workstations manufactured by companies such as Apollo and Sun Microsystems. After a frenzied development, the IDEA 1000 product was introduced at the 1982 Design Automation Conference, though in a suite and not on the floor. In 1999 Mentor acquired the VeriBest subsidiary from Intergraph Corp. which included a development office in Huntsville, AL and eliminated one of their direct competitors. In 2002 Mentor made another acquisition by purchasing MA based Innoveda; the acquisition added to the printed circuit board and wire harness design tools that Mentor had. In June 2008, Cadence Design Systems offered to acquire Mentor Graphics in a leveraged buyout. On 15 August 2008, Cadence withdrew this offer quoting an inability to raise the necessary capital and the unwillingness of Mentor Graphics' Board and management to discuss the offer.
Mentor acquired Flomerics Group plc for $60 million in cash in October 2008, in August 2009, Mentor completed the acquisition of silicon manufacturing testing company LogicVision for $13 million in an all-stock deal. Mentor completed the acquisition of Valor Computerized Systems in March 2010 in a cash and stock deal valued at $50 million. On 22 February 2011, Carl Icahn, an activist investor, made an offer to buy the company for about $1.86 billion in cash. As of 2012, Mentor's major competitors are: Cadence Design Systems, Synopsys and Zuken. On March 3, 2015 Mentor Graphics announced it had acquired the business assets of Tanner EDA. On 14 November 2016, Mentor Graphics announced that it was to be acquired by Siemens for $4.5 billion, at $37.25 per share, a 21% premium on Mentor's closing price on the previous Friday. The acquisition was completed in March 2017, and Mentor Graphics became styled as "Mentor, a Siemens Business". Mentor product development takes place in the USA, Poland, Japan, Canada, Pakistan, UK and India.
James "Jim" Ready, left Mentor in 1999 to form the embedded Linux company MontaVista. Neil Henderson joined Mentor Graphics in 2002 with the acquisition of Accelerated Technology Inc. Stephen Mellor, a leader in the UML space and co-originator of the Shlaer-Mellor design methodology, joined Mentor Graphics in 2004 following the acquisition of Project Technology. Walden C. Rhines was the company's chief executive officer and president following the acquisition by Siemens, until November 2018 when he became CEO Emeritus. Tony Hemmelgarn is now the president and CEO of Siemens PLM Software, which includes the Mentor product line. Mentor distributes the following tools: Electronic design automation for: Integrated circuit layout full-custom and SDL tools such as IC Station IC place and route tool: Olympus-SoC IC Verification tools such as Calibre nmDRC, Calibre nmLVS, Calibre xRC, Calibre xACT 3D IC Design for Manufacturing tools such as Calibre LFD, Calibre YieldEnhancer and Calibre YieldAnalyzer Schematic editors for electronic schematics such as Design Architect IC or DxDesigner Layout and design tools for printed circuit boards with programs such as PADS, Xpedition Enterprise and Board Station Component library management tools IP cores for ASIC and FPGA designs Embedded systems Development: Mentor Embedded Linux for ARM, MIPS, x86 architecture processors Real-time operating systems: Nucleus OS VRTX AUTOSAR implementation: Embedded implementation VSTAR in part acquired from Mecel in 2013 Configuration tooling Volcano Vehicle Systems Builder Development Tools: Sourcery CodeBench and Sourcery GNU toolchains Inflexion UI - xtUML Design Tools: BridgePoint VPN Solutions: Nucleus Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol software Nucleus NET networking stack Nucleus implementation of the Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption protocol Nucleus PPP software FPGA synthesis tools: Precision synthesis - Advanced RTL & physical synthesis for FPGAs Electrical Systems and Harness design: Capital - a suite of integrated tools for the design and manufacture of electrical systems and harnesses VeSys - a mid-market toolset for vehicle electrical system and harness design Simulation tools for analog mixed-signal design: ModelSim is a hardware simulation and debug environment targeted at smaller ASIC and FPGA design QuestaSim is a Simulator with additional Debug capabilities targeted at comple
Beechcraft T-34 Mentor
The Beechcraft T-34 Mentor is an American propeller-driven, single-engined, military trainer aircraft derived from the Beechcraft Model 35 Bonanza. The earlier versions of the T-34, dating from around the late 1940s to the 1950s, were piston-engined; these were succeeded by the upgraded T-34C Turbo-Mentor, powered by a turboprop engine. The T-34 remains in service; the T-34 was the brainchild of Walter Beech, who developed it as the Beechcraft Model 45 private venture at a time when there was no defense budget for a new trainer model. Beech hoped to sell it as an economical alternative to the North American T-6/SNJ Texan in use by all services of the U. S. military. Three initial design concepts were developed for the Model 45, including one with the Bonanza's signature V-tail, but the final design that emerged in 1948 incorporated conventional tail control surfaces for the benefit of the more conservative military; the Bonanza's fuselage with four-passenger cabin was replaced with a narrower fuselage incorporating a two-seater tandem cockpit and bubble canopy, which provided greater visibility for the trainee pilot and flight instructor.
Structurally, the Model 45 was much stronger than the Bonanza, being designed for +10g and −4.5g, while the Continental E-185 engine of 185 horsepower at takeoff was the same as that fitted to contemporary Bonanzas. Following the prototype were three Model A45T aircraft, the first two with the same engine as the prototype and the third with a Continental E-225, which would prove to be close to the production version. Production did not begin until 1953, when Beechcraft began delivering T-34As to the United States Air Force and similar Model B45 aircraft for export. Production of the T-34B for the United States Navy began in 1955, this version featuring a number of changes reflecting the different requirements of the two services; the T-34B had only differential braking for steering control on the ground instead of nosewheel steering, additional wing dihedral and, to cater for the different heights of pilots, adjustable rudder pedals instead of the moveable seats of the T-34A. T-34A production was completed in 1956, with T-34Bs being built until October 1957 and licensed B45 versions built in Canada and Argentina until 1958.
Beechcraft delivered the last Model B45s in 1959. Total production of the Continental-engined versions in the US and abroad was 1,904 aircraft. In 1955 Beechcraft developed a jet-engined derivative, again as a private venture, again in the hope of winning a contract from the US military; the Model 73 Jet Mentor shared many components with the piston-engined aircraft. The first flight of the Model 73, registered N134B, was on 18 December 1955; the Model 73 was evaluated by the USAF, which ordered the Cessna T-37, the USN, which decided upon the Temco TT Pinto. After initial testing at the Naval Air Test Center at NAS Patuxent River, the Navy tested the feasibility of using the TT Pinto as a jet-powered trainer for primary flight training in 1959, but discontinued use of the aircraft by December 1960 and discarded all examples, returning to the piston-powered T-34B Mentor and North American T-28 Trojan for its primary flight training requirements; the Beechcraft Model 73 was not put into production and the sole prototype is displayed at the Kansas Aviation Museum.
After a production hiatus of 15 years, the T-34C Turbo-Mentor powered by a Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-25 turboprop engine was developed in 1973. Development proceeded at the behest of the USN. After re-engining with the PT6, the two aircraft were redesignated as YT-34Cs, the first of these flying with turboprop power for the first time on 21 September 1973. Mentor production restarted in 1975 for deliveries of T-34Cs to the USN and of the T-34C-1 armed version for export customers in 1977, this version featuring four underwing hardpoints; the last Turbo-Mentor rolled off the production line in 1990. Since the late 1970s, T-34Cs have been used by the Naval Air Training Command to train numerous Naval Aviators and Naval Flight Officers for the U. S. Navy, U. S. Marine Corps, U. S. Coast Guard, numerous NATO and Allied nations. With over 35 years of service, the T-34C has been replaced by the T-6 Texan II; the first flight of the Model 45 was by Beechcraft test pilot Vern Carstens. In 1950, the USAF ordered three Model A45T test aircraft, which were given the military designation YT-34.
A long competition followed to determine a new trainer, in 1953 the Air Force put the Model 45 into service as the T-34A Mentor, while the USN followed in May 1955 with the T-34B. After extensive testing, the USAF ordered the Mentor into production as the T-34A in early 1953; the first production T-34A was delivered to Edwards Air Force Base, California, in October 1953 for evaluation, deliveries to the Air Training Command began in 1954. The T-34A commenced service as USAF's initial primary flight trainer at "contract" pilot training air bases across the southern United States, replacing extant North American AT-6 Texan trainers. Following training in the T-34A, USAF pilot trainees would advance to the North American T-28A Trojan for intermediate trai
The Lensman series is a series of science fiction novels by American author Edward Elmer "Doc" Smith. It was a runner-up for the 1966 Hugo award for Best All-Time Series; the series was published in magazines before being collected and reworked into the better-known series of books. The complete series in internal sequence with original publication dates is. Triplanetary First Lensman Galactic Patrol Gray Lensman Second Stage Lensmen Children of the Lens Lensman Sequel The Vortex Blaster Originally, the series consisted of the four novels Galactic Patrol, Gray Lensman, Second Stage Lensmen, Children of the Lens, published between 1937 and 1948 in the magazine Astounding Stories. In 1948, at the suggestion of Lloyd Arthur Eshbach, Smith rewrote his 1934 story Triplanetary to fit in with the Lensman series. First Lensman was written in 1950 to act as a link between Triplanetary and Galactic Patrol and in the years up to 1954, Smith revised the rest of the series to remove inconsistencies between the original Lensman chronology and Triplanetary.
The series begins with Triplanetary, beginning two billion years before the present time and continuing into the near future. The universe has no life-forms aside from the ancient Arisians, few planets besides the Arisians' native world; the peaceful Arisians have foregone physical skills in order to develop contemplative mental power. The underlying assumption for this series, based on theories of stellar evolution extant at the time of the books' writing, is that planets form only and therefore our First and Second Galaxies, with their many billions of planets, are unique; the Eddorians, a dictatorial, power-hungry race, come into our universe from an alien space-time continuum after observing that our galaxy and a sister galaxy are passing through each other. This will result in the formation of billions of planets and the development of life upon some of them. Dominance over these life forms would offer the Eddorians an opportunity to satisfy their lust for power and control. Although the Eddorians have developed mental powers equal to those of the Arisians, they rely instead for the most part on physical power, which came to be exercised on their behalf by a hierarchy of underling races.
They see the many races in the universe, with which the Arisians were intending to build a peaceful civilization, as fodder for their power-drive. The Arisians detect the Eddorians' invasion of our universe and realize that they are too evenly matched for either to destroy the other without being destroyed themselves; the Eddorians do not detect the Arisians, who begin a covert breeding program on every world that can produce intelligent life, with particular emphasis on the four planets Earth, Velantia III, Rigel IV, Palain VII, in the hope of creating a race, capable of destroying the Eddorians. Triplanetary incorporates the early history of that breeding program on Earth, illustrated with the lives of several warriors and soldiers, from ancient times to the discovery of the first interstellar space drive, it adds an additional short novel, transitional to the novel First Lensman. It details some of the interactions and natures of two distinct breeding lines, one bearing some variant of the name "Kinnison", another distinguished by possessing "red-bronze-auburn hair and gold-flecked, tawny eyes".
The two lines do not commingle. The second book, First Lensman, concerns the early formation of the Galactic Patrol and the first Lens, given to First Lensman Virgil Samms of "Tellus". Samms and Roderick Kinnison are members of the two breeding lines and they are both natural leaders, intelligent and capable; the Arisians make it known that if Samms, the head of the Triplanetary Service, visits the Arisian planetary system he will be given the tool he needs to build the Galactic Patrol. That tool is the Lens; the Arisians further promise him that no entity unworthy of the Lens will be permitted to wear it, but that he and his successors will have to discover for themselves most of its abilities. The Lens gives its wearer a variety of mental capabilities, including those needed to enforce the law on alien planets, to bridge the communication gap between different life-forms, it can provide telepathic abilities. It cannot be worn by anyone other than its owner, will kill any other wearer, a brief touch is painful.
Using the Lens as a means to test mental qualities and identify individuals able to help him, Virgil Samms visits races and species in other star systems, recruiting the best of them and forming the nucleus of a Galactic Patrol. Their opponents are discovered to be a widespread civilization based on dominance hierarchies and using organized crime merged with crony capitalism to assume control of new planets; the series contains some of the largest-scale space battles written. Entire worlds are casually destroyed. Huge fleets of spaceships fight bloody wars of attrition. Alien races of two galaxies sort themselv

Two major railroads pass through CSX Transportation and Norfolk Southern. Mentor's school system consists of eight elementary schools, two middle schools, Mentor High School. Like many school systems in Ohio, Mentor Schools suffered a financial crisis in the early 2000s, but passed a large levy and is now on solid footing, it is one of the fastest Ohio school systems to emerge from fiscal emergency. The financial difficulties were due in part to years of accounting fraud.

Mentor is named after the Greek figure Mentor, in keeping with the Connecticut Western Reserve settlers' tradition, as well as that of most other Americans at the time, of celebrating aspects of Greek classicism. Mentor is located on the south shore of Lake Erie; the Mentor Headlands area of Mentor, located in the northeast portion of the city, was settled in 1797 by Connecticut Land Company surveyors. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 28.00 square miles, of which 26.65 square miles is land and 1.35 square miles is water. Mentor was formally established in 1855 but founded in the late eighteenth century by Charles Parker who built the first settlement; this settlement was established before Ohio became the 17th state in the Union in 1803. About 37 years in 1840, Lake County, the smallest county in Ohio, was established, it earned the nickname, "Rose Capital of the Nation" due to the abundant rosebushes that grew throughout the city. During the time this nickname developed, Mentor’s tourist industry boomed due to Clevelanders trying to escape a dirty, industrial atmosphere.
Post World War II, most Mentor dwellers could efficiently drive to work. This caused an increase in middle and working-class families and by 2000, about 50,000 people lived in Mentor; the "Official Flag of the City of Mentor" was designed by Brad Frost in 1988 for a contest by Mentor Headlands. The flag's appearance is similar to Ohio's flag in that they have similar shapes, a large blue triangle, stripes; the blue triangle represents Ohio's hills while the stripes represent waterways.
