NICE, France, Sept. 19 (Xinhua) -- Serena Williams' coach Patrick Mouratoglou has officially unveiled his new tennis academy at Sophia-Antipolis, 20km west of Nice, France on Monday.

The Mouratoglou Tennis Academy, located in the heart of the French Riviera, emerged as a unique 12 hectares complex after two years of construction, the largest one among its peers in Europe.

With a capacity to train more than 3,000 players a year, the academy combines advanced sporting facilities, a medical center and a 4-star hotel resort.

Serena Williams, 21-times Grand Slam winner, and world No. 1 Novak Djokovic, were both present among more than 1,200 guests for the opening ceremony.

Mouratoglou, 46, took over coaching Serena in 2012, when the top American female player suffered her only first-round exit from a major at Roland Garros.

Serena had stayed on top of the WTA rankings for more than three years before being overtaken by Germany's Angelique Kerber a week ago.

The world's richest one percent raked in 82 percent of the wealth created last year while the poorest half of the population received none Adidas Ultra Boost Hvid Tilbud Danmark , Oxfam said Monday, as the world's elite prepared to mingle at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

A new report from the charity also found that the wealth of billionaires has grown six times faster than that of ordinary workers since 2010, with another billionaire minted every two days between March 2016 and March 2017.

Oxfam used its findings to paint a picture of a global economy in which the wealthy few amass ever-greater fortunes while hundreds of millions of people are "struggling to survive on poverty pay".

"The billionaire boom is not a sign of a thriving economy but a symptom of a failing economic system," Oxfam executive director Winnie Byanyima said in a statement.

Oxfam also emphasised the plight of women workers, who "consistently earn less than men" and often have the lowest paid Adidas Ultra Boost Herre Sort Tilbud Danmark , least secure jobs. Nine out of 10 billionaires are men, it added.

The report, titled "Reward Work, not Wealth", used data from Credit Suisse to compare the returns of top executives and shareholders to that of ordinary workers.

It found that chief executives of the top five global fashion brands made in just four days what garment workers in Bangladesh earn over a lifetime.

"The people who make our clothes Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 Blå Grå På nettet , assemble our phones and grow our food are being exploited to ensure a steady supply of cheap goods, and swell the profits of corporations and billionaire investors,"said Byanyima.

To fight rising inequality, Oxfam called on governments to limit the returns of shareholders and top executives, close the gender pay gap Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 Hvid Billig , crackdown on tax avoidance and increase spending on healthcare and education.

The study was released on the eve of top political and business figures meeting at a luxury Swiss ski resort for the annual World Economic Forum, which this year says it will focus on how to create "a shared future in a fractured world".

"It's hard to find a political or business leader who doesn't say they are worried about inequality," said Byanyima.

"It's even harder to find one who is doing something about it. Many are actively making things worse by slashing taxes and scrapping labour rights."

A survey has found that many among China's post-90s generation are happy to be at home alone.

These "indoorsy" types have, to some extent, been seduced by the comforts of modern technology adidas nmd cs1 tilbud , in particular smartphones. But as CGTN reports, indoorsy people are more than capable of getting along by themselves...

It's New Year's Day, but for Xu Xingxing, a company employee in Beijing, it's simply another regular day.

"When I'm on holiday adidas nmd cs2 tilbud , I would spend one day or half the day shopping. Then I stay indoors for the rest of the holiday. Amongst my colleagues – most young people living alone, who are referred to as empty-nested youths in China – are all like me," said Xu.

An online survey shows that nearly half of post-90s (in China, that means people born after 1990) admit they are indoorsy.

Not surprisingly, nearly 90 percent of them stay on their mobile phones all day long. Among the respondents adidas nmd r1 tilbud , over 26 percent think the more friends they have the merrier.

Xu is among those who prefer to stay alone instead of making friends. In her leisure time, she hones her skills in calligraphy and painting. And inside her home, some of her paintings are on display.

But this doesn't mean that Xu won't reach out to others. Like nearly everyone else, she still likes to talk to her friends from time to time – but on a messenger app. She said most of her friends live far away even though they all live in the same city.

Xu said one of the issues she needs to deal with every day is making decisions on what to eat.

When the meal is delivered, she cracks open the door just enough to receive the order. She says it's safer to keep strangers at a distance.

Being indoorsy is nothing new adidas nmd chukka suede tilbud , but the growth of the Internet has surely helped those who want to stay behind closed doors. Many say these people are laid-back, but there's no denying that this lifestyle has helped plenty of other people who work in China's booming service industry.
