Despite missing out to Cambridge this year in some national and international university rankings, Oxford has redeemed itself in a study that shows it produces more millionaires than any other institution in the United Kingdom.Research by Elite Traveler magazine and wealth consultancy firm WealthInsight pegged Oxford as the fourth-largest producer of millionaire alumni in the world, behind US institutions Harvard, University of Pennsylvania and Stanford.Cambridge and the University of London also placed inside the top 15 universities worldwide, the former just edging out the latter on the list. The United States dominated the list, with every other spot in the top ten going to universities there.There is some question over the extent to which measures like this can be used as litmus tests for graduate earnings as a whole: the Guardian and Complete University Guide rank Cambridge higher in ‘graduate prospects’ and ‘career after six months’ respectively.Oxford’s wealthy students have made headlines before, with 44.4 per cent of students admitted in 2015 having attended independent schools, suggesting that Oxford may already hold an advantage in wealth accumulation over other universities in Britain.Previous research into billionaire graduates has shown similar results, with nine of the top top ten universities with the most billionaire graduates in the United States, along with Cambridge.A report by the Intergenerational Foundation in July found that the £400,000 lifetime earnings boost often touted as the payoff for tuition fees in the British university system could only be achievable by Oxbridge graduates.The full list of universities ranked by millionaire graduates can be found here.
The 4 GW IJmuiden Ver zone is one of the three areas identified by the Dutch Offshore Wind Energy Roadmap 2030. TenneT will install two 2 GW direct current connections at the wind farm zone to transfer electricity generated by IJmuiden Ver offshore wind farms to land. The deadline for submitting bids is midnight on 13 October, with the contract(s) coming into effect on 3 December. As announced in July, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), has now issued an invitation to tender for geotechnical soil investigations at the IJmuiden Ver Wind Farm Zone (IJVWFZ), located some 62 kilometres off the Dutch coast. The Dutch government will issue two tenders for the permits to develop the zone. In 2023, developers will bid for IJmuiden Ver I and II sites, and in 2025 for IJmuiden Ver III and IV. The tender is divided into two lots, one to be awarded for seabed Core Penetration Testing (CPT) and the other one for a borehole campaign.
Tottenham celebrate Mauricio Pochettino insists fitness won’t be a problem for Tottenham against Arsenal.The short trip to the Emirates on Sunday will be Spurs’ third game in less than a week, but Pochettino has no doubts that his squad can deal with the workload.They have certainly coped well so far, following up Monday’s 3-1 win over with Aston Villa in the Premier League by beating Anderlecht 2-1 in the Europa League on Thursday night.“It’s not because we have a young squad that we run a lot and we now win the games,” Pochettino said.“It’s about the way we’re training. This is our sports science and our medical staff who deserve to have their job recognised.“When you have to push the players every day, it is hard for the players and you can be proud of how they recovered for (the game against Anderlecht).“It is not a miracle. It is hard work from the beginning of the season.”The contest at White Hart Lane looked to be heading for a 1-1 draw when Harry Kane’s first-half strike was cancelled out by Imoh Ezekiel but Dembele came off the bench to score a stunning winner in the 87th minute.Dembele expressed disappointment earlier this year at his lack of game-time at White Hart Lane but the midfielder appears to have won over Pochettino, having started all of Tottenham’s last four matches and scored three times in the process.“If we analyse him last season, part of the season he was injured,” Pochettino said.“I think Dembele from the beginning of this season, every time he was available he had the possibility to play.“Always it’s up to the player. If the player shows he deserves to play, it’s easy for them.“I am very pleased with him. He got injured against Everton and had some problems with his foot but today he was very important for us.” 1
