In Greek mythology, Mentor (sometimes Mentes) was the son of Alcumus and, in his old age, a friend of Odysseus. When Odysseus left for the Trojan War, he placed Mentor in charge of his son, Telemachus and his palace. When Athena visited Telemachus, she took the disguise of Mentor to hide herself from Telemachus' mother's suitors.
This is the source of the modern use of the word mentor: a trusted friend, counselor or teacher. Some professions have "mentoring programs" in which newcomers are paired with more experienced people in order to obtain good examples and advice as they advance.
In the England the National Learning Network have commissioned a team of 20 ILT subject mentors to help College staff get to grips with using ILT effectively.
A highly sensitive microbarograph was developed in the institute (Mentes, 1994) which is capable of measuring pressure variations and also atmospheric tides with good resolution (Mentes and Eper, 1997).
This instrument was installed in the observatory in 1992 and it is working, with breaks for technical reasons, under the same conditions that apply to the extensometer.
