LONDON Mario Gavranovic WM 2018 Trikot , Jan. 25 (Xinhua) -- Britain's world famous Oxford University has offered more places to women than men, it was confirmed Thursday.
It prompted the Times newspaper to report it is the first time in history that men have been overtaken in the race for places at Oxford.
Figures show that last year 1,275 women received offers from Oxford compared with 1,165 men. Of those, 1,070 women got the grades to secure their place compared with 1,025 men.
The gender gap at Cambridge has also narrowed with 1 Admir Mehmedi WM 2018 Trikot ,140 men starting their studies last fall compared with 1,055 women.
The Times said that data, from the universities admissions body Ucas, dates back only to 2012, but men are likely to have outnumbered women since the first Oxford college was established in 1249, though records of education being offered in Oxford date back 1,000 years.
A spokeswoman at Oxford told Xinhua: "We can't say for certain whether this is the first time in history that Oxford has let in more women than men Denis Zakaria WM 2018 Trikot , but it certainly is the first time since 2012 which is as far back as this year's UCAS figures go. And while it's too early to call this a trend based on one year's numbers, it is a welcome sign of progress for female applicants to Oxford."
Women were first admitted to Oxford university when Lady Margaret Hall opened its doors as an all-women college in 1878. Women could only attend lectures and were not allowed to take degrees, however. They became full members of the university in 1920.
The Good University Guide for 2018 shows the number of better-off children still dwarfs those from poorer backgrounds.
At Oxford 1,340 students came from the richest homes last year and 105 from the poorest. At Cambridge it was 1,135 to 110.
The number of university applications across the country fell last year, a result of a smaller cohort of 18-year-olds.
The Oxford Mail newspaper, published in the university city Gelson Fernandes WM 2018 Trikot , said the new figures also reveal a record number of Asian students admitted to Oxford in 2017.
DAVOS, Switzerland, Jan. 24 (Xinhua) -- Once Chinese entrepreneurs change their focus from the domestic market to abroad, their business mode will beat U.S. competitors and take a larger share of foreign markets, Chinese CEO Kai-Fu Lee said during the World Economic Forum here.
The founder and CEO of Sinovation Ventures, a venture capital firm that specializes in creating successful Chinese start-ups, made the remarks recently to CNBC TV on the sidelines of the Davos forum.
Lee believes Chinese companies are better at localization and partnering with native companies Blerim Dzemaili WM 2018 Trikot , "more partnership-friendly" in short, while U.S. competitors are "more monolithic, taking Facebook and Google everywhere."
Though Chinese business people and companies are largely targeting the domestic market, the situation will change within the next five to 10 years, he said.
The large amount of domestic opportunities somehow hinders Chinese entrepreneurs' from eyeing markets abroad, said Lee, who is also a computer scientist.
"The China domestic market is so large Steven Zuber WM 2018 Trikot , it is three times the size of the U.S. and even larger if you consider things like mobile payment and things like that, it's 50 times larger than the U.S.," he said.
Therefore, "there isn't a lot of them (Chinese business leaders) looking overseas," the CEO said. However, when the time comes, he bets that "for those markets outside the U.S. Ricardo Rodriguez WM 2018 Trikot , English-speaking countries and Western Europe" China will take take the lead in market shares.
"I think Chinese companies learn very quickly. They fail fast, learn fast, grow fast," Lee said.
Lee is one of China's most successful venture capitalists and influential micro-bloggers. Prior to starting Sinovation Ventures, Lee was the president of Google China.

"In the context of the situation on the Korean Peninsula, the heads of state strongly condemned the provocative actions of the DPRK Valon Behrami WM 2018 Trikot , which grossly violated the requirements of the relevant resolutions of the United Nations Security Council," the Kremlin said in a statement.
It added that such actions are contrary to the principles of global non-proliferation and pose a serious threat to regional peace and security.
