Ohio, Salman Sulaiman,[email protected] Shanghai," Rakitic said on Friday. It has been a great honour to play with Andres in the last four years at Barcelona and with Luka for the last 11 years for Croatia.You try to enjoy it as much as you can to learn from them It’s the best thing that can happen to any player If I created a football team I would have both of them in my team" Former Croatia midfielder Robert Prosinecki who earned 49 caps and is considered one of the country’s finest players has said Modric is their best ever a statement Rakitic approves of wholeheartedly "I would agree with him completely not only that Luka is the best player but he is a great person a leader and we are following him" Rakitic said "I’m sure he can feel our confidence in him It’s a great challenge to play against him in the Spanish league to fight for the titles for Barcelona and Real and it’s even better to play with him in the national team for our country" the 30-year-old added Rakitic and Modric form one of the most formidable midfield pairings at the World Cup and after an impressive start Croatia are being tipped to go far They have not gone past the group stage since 1998 when they made the semi-finals and striker Davor Suker finished top scorer "We know the team from 1998 was great they were all our idols and they showed the way for each Croatian team afterwards" Rakitic said adding "but we need to forget about that and write our own story at this tournament God willing we can achieve the same result or maybe even more" Croatia are strong favourites to see off Denmark despite the threat posed by Christian Eriksen but could face a sterner test against Spain in the quarter-finals who must first overcome Russia "To be honest I see Spain above everyone else I think they are the main favorites of this tournament" Rakitic said justifying his comment by saying "they had three difficult games in the group the confidence they are playing with is one level above everyone else I know them very well and wish them all the best" Click here

degrees in so-called STEM (science technology engineering and mathematics) fields make up 45% of the undergraduate total and their share of the graduate pool is even larger But within that broad picture are some surprising trends involving China and India the two countries that supply the largest number of students (see graphic above) One is that the flow of Chinese students into US graduate programs is plateauing at the same time their pursuit of US undergraduate degrees is soaring Another is the recent spike in graduate students from India occurring despite a continuing small presence of Indian students at the undergraduate level In August ScienceInsider wrote about a report from the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) on the most recent acceptance rates for foreign students at US graduate programs Last week the report was updated to reflect this fall’s actual first-time enrollment figures And yesterday the Institute of International Education (IIE) issued its annual Open Doors report which covers both undergraduate and graduate students from elsewhere enrolling in the United States as well as US students studying abroad According to IIE 42% of the 886000 international students at US universities in 2013 to 2014 hailed from China and India China makes up nearly three-fourths of that subtotal In fact the number of Chinese students equals the total from the next 12 highest ranking countries after India This year’s IIE report also includes a look at 15-year trends For example foreign students compose only 81% of total US enrollment but their numbers have grown by 72% since 1999 making international students an increasingly important part of US higher education Their presence has long been visible within graduate programs in science and engineering fields of course But the new Open Doors report documents a surge in undergraduate enrollment from China to the point where it almost equals the number of graduate students in the country—110550 versus 115727 In 2000 the ratio was nearly 1-to-6 Trying to understand such trends keeps university administrators up at night And the more they know the better they can be at anticipating the next trend That’s why ScienceInsider turned to Peggy Blumenthal She’s spent 30 years at IIE most recently as senior counselor to its current president Allan Goodman and that longevity has given her a rich perspective on the ebb and flow of international students Here is her perspective on what’s moving the needle for Chinese and Indian students IIE An explosion of Chinese undergraduates The numbers: Chinese undergraduate enrollment in the United States has grown from 8252 in 2000 to 110550 last year Almost all of that growth has occurred since 2007 and there has been a doubling since 2010 The reasons: A high score on China’s national college entrance examination called the gaokao enables a Chinese student to attend a top university and can punch their ticket to a successful career It requires years of high-stress preparation however A growing number of parents choose to remove their children from that pressure cooker Blumenthal says and look for alternatives abroad The chance for a liberal arts education at a US university is an attractive alternative to the rigid undergraduate training offered by most Chinese universities she adds The US system of higher education Blumenthal says offers Chinese families “a unique opportunity to shop” based on the price quality and reputation of the institution The cost of out-of-state tuition at a top public US university is a relative bargain for China’s growing middle class she notes and community colleges are dirt cheap Recent changes in immigration policies have made the United Kingdom and Australia less desirable destinations among English-speaking countries according to Blumenthal She also thinks that US colleges have built a sturdy support system based on their decades of experience in hosting foreign students “In Germany or France you’re pretty much on your own” in choosing classes completing the work and earning a degree she says “Nobody is there to help if you’re having trouble” Flat Chinese graduate enrollment The numbers: The CGS report says that the number of first-time graduate students this fall from China fell by 1% the first time in the decade that it has declined Thanks to that dip the growth in the overall number of Chinese graduate students on US campuses slowed to just 3% this fall compared with double-digit increases in recent years US academic scientists may not be aware of this emerging trend because of the sheer number of Chinese graduate students on US campuses IIE puts the number last year at 115727 and the CGS report says they represent one-third of all foreign graduate students The reasons: Chinese graduate students have more options at home now “China has pumped enormous resources into its graduate education capacity” across thousands of universities Blumenthal says An increasing proportion of the professors at those universities have been trained in the United States and Europe she says and upon their return they have implemented Western research practices “They are beginning to teach more like we do publish like we do and operate their labs like we do” At the same time she says the added value of a US graduate degree has shrunk in relation to a comparable Chinese degree “That’s not true for MIT [the Massachusetts Institute of Technology] or [the University of California] Berkeley of course—those degrees still carry a premium in the job market” she says “But for the vast majority of Chinese students it’s not clear that an investment in a US degree is worth it especially when the rapid growth of the Chinese economy has created such a great need for scientific and engineering talent” In the United States a tight job market often translates into more students attending graduate school in the hope that it will give them an edge But high unemployment rates among college graduates in China haven’t created a potentially larger pool of applicants to US graduate programs she says because those students are not competitive with their US peers “They are probably not English speakers and would have trouble passing the TOEFL [an assessment of English language skills]” she surmises “So they might only get into a fourth-rate US graduate program” In contrast she says US graduate programs have historically gotten “the cream of the crop” from China And if a larger proportion of those students can build a career in China fewer need apply to US graduate programs Few Indian undergraduates The numbers: India barely registers on a list of originating countries for US undergraduates Compared with China home to 30% of all US international undergrads Indian students compose only 3% of the pool And the overall total for 2013—12677—actually reflects a drop of 05% from 2012 The reasons: Top-performing Indian students are well-served at the undergraduate level by the country’s network of elite technology institutes known as IITs India has also never had a strong connection to the United States at the undergraduate level according to Blumenthal In addition she says “many Indian parents are reluctant to send their girls abroad especially at the undergraduate level” By contrast she says China’s one-child-per-family rule has meant that they have “one shot at success male or female” Soaring graduate enrollment from India The numbers: The incoming class of Indian students for US graduate programs is 27% larger this year than in 2013 according to CGS’s annual survey And that increase follows a 40% jump in 2013 over 2012 However CGS officials note that the Indian numbers have historically been more volatile than those from China; the increases for 2011 and 2012 were 2% and 1% respectively The reasons: US graduate programs have benefited from several recent developments that together have opened the floodgates for Indian students For starters India’s investment in higher education hasn’t yet had much effect on graduate education Blumenthal says Unlike in China she says “in India there’s been very little effort to upgrade the quality of the faculty” At the same time it’s becoming harder for graduates of India’s universities to follow the traditional path of doing their further training in Britain or Australia as many of their professors had done in previous generations For the United Kingdom tuition increases visa restrictions and a tightening of rules for those seeking work permits after college have all created greater barriers to entry Blumenthal says “It sends a message from the UK government that [it’s] not really interested in international students” she says “They are now regarded as simply another category of immigrants” rather than a valuable future source of intellectual capital In Australia Blumenthal notes there’s a growing backlash against earlier government attempts to recruit more international students “People think they let in too many” she says “They didn’t fit in they didn’t speak English and there was a perception that they were taking away jobs from Australians” A recent strengthening of the rupee against the US dollar has made US graduate education more affordable for the middle class she adds And sluggish economic growth in India has meant fewer jobs for recent college graduatesA job interview is your chance to make a killer first impression and prove to the hiring manager that you’re the best person for the job But sometimes nerves get the best of us or we just don’t prepare properly and we end up doing things that discount our qualifications and make us seem irresponsible or incompetent “I’ve easily conducted over 200 job interviews in the past 12 months” says Liz Wessel CEO and cofounder of WayUp a site used by 200000 college students to find jobs at places like Microsoft Uber the New York Times Disney and Google where Wessel previously worked “Even the brightest and most experienced candidates seem to have issues following best practices for interviewing” Business Insider: 7 questions to ask yourself before your next job interview She says these are some of the worst mistakes job candidates make in (or before) interviews that can make them look seriously unqualified: 1 Talking about how nervous you are You might think it’s endearing to admit to nerves in an interview says Wessel But the truth is it’s not a good look “Employers expect you to be an adult calm under pressure and able to handle the kinds of stressful situations that you might encounter in the workplace Talking about your nerves and by implication looking for pity is a great to way to send them the message that you’re not ready to handle a real office environment” Business Insider: 6 extreme job interview tactics that actually work 2 Failing to do your research “I once had a candidate walk into the room and ask me if I was the office manager” Wessel recalls “Not a great start” As you prepare for an interview you should find out everything you can about the company its leaders and the person with whom you’ll be speaking she continues “Employers want to see that you’ve done your homework and that you’re engaged with the company and its issues” It’s totally fine to ask questions she says but not questions that you should already know the answer to or can easily answer with a quick Google search “Good prep work will help you ask insightful educated questions so you can stand out” Wessel says Business Insider: 10 ways to calm down right before a job interview 3 Answering questions without elaborating Interviewers aren’t looking for one-word answers they’re looking for stories about how you made an impact in previous roles she explains “So when an interviewer brings up your past role as the president of a club or as an intern at a startup don’t just say ‘Yes that was a lot of fun’ Explain This is your chance to shine” Talk about what you learned; how you tackled tough issues and how you helped bring success to the organization Wessel advises Business Insider: Heres exactly what you should do with your hands during a job interview 4 Not having any questions for the interviewer (or acting as if the interviewer covered all of your questions earlier) At the end of almost every interview the hiring manager will turn the tables and ask: “Do you have any questions for me” “You might think it’s a formality It’s not” she says “A lack of questions reflects a lack of engagement or even an inability to think on your feet” The good news is that you can shine pretty easily with just a little bit of prep Wessel adds “Come to the interview with three questions that the interviewer is guaranteed not to address during your time And instead of overused questions for example ‘What is your average day like’ try something more along the lines of ‘What is the toughest part of your job’ or ‘Where do you think the company really needs improvement’” Again she says asking questions at the end of the interview helps to make the interaction a conversation rather than a grilling and shows your enthusiasm “And it doesn’t hurt to make the interviewer feel like you’re interviewing them just a little bit” Business Insider: Here’s the one thing interviewers look for in every job candidate Luckily these bad habits are easy to avoid or break “Good preparation goes a long way for a lot of these but for nerves I recommend Amy Cuddy’s advice on body language” Wessel says “And even faking confidence often helps create real confidence When the people around you feel comfortable that creates a positive feedback loop that helps you feel at ease as well” This article originally appeared on Business Insider
