REUTERS/Arnd Wiegmann The world’s 26 richest people own as much wealth as the poorest half of humanity, Oxfam said Monday. In France, a third of the country’s wealth is in the hands of just eight billionaires. The charity has urged governments to increase taxes on the wealthy to fight soaring inequality. A new report from the charity, published ahead of the World Economic Forum in Davos , also found that billionaires around the world saw their combined fortunes grow by $2.5 billion each day in 2018. The world’s richest man, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, saw his fortune increase to $112 billion last year, Oxfam said, pointing out that just one percent of his wealth was the equivalent to the entire health budget of Ethiopia, a country of 105 million people.

REUTERS/Thibault Camus As Emmanuel Macron prepares to pitch a dynamic new France to dozens of business leaders on Monday, many are wondering if the former banker can first win over his opponents.

REMY GABALDA / AFP A French chef who shocked the culinary world in 2017 by handing back his Michelin stars says he’s most surprised to find himself back in the prestigious guide’s new edition. Sebastien Bras cited the “huge pressure” that came with Michelin recognition when in September 2017 he requested his three-star restaurant Le Suquet in the rural Aveyron region to be removed from the 2018 guide . Michelin agreed and Claire Dorland Clauzel – the company’s brand manager at the time – told AFP it was “difficult for us to have a restaurant in the guide which does not wish to be in it”.

There’s a growing fad among some friends (male and female) who engage in occasional sexual intimacy as a benefit of their friendship. These friends, I learnt, are not involved in proper dating or courtship; they are just good friends.

I understand it’s a convenient way of staying comfortable in friendship as there’re no commitments involved. Therefore, there’s no fear of heartbreak in sight because no expectations or obligations are demanded. Also,
