  • Consumer companies' outperformance no longer guaranteed by cheap oil

    By Martinne Geller LONDON (Reuters) - Consumer companies are offering investors a small degree of relief from the turmoil in banking and resources in a results season dominated by fears about slowing economic growth. This means those companies may not be as much of a safe haven investment as they used to be in times of low commodities prices or economic stress. Since 2008, food and beverage stocks have offered a 142 percent total shareholder return, nearly double that of the market overall, according to Thomson Reuters global equity indices.

  • You've Never Seen A Gymnast With A Routine Like This One

    Sophina DeJesus whipped, nae nae-ed and absolutely owned her gymnast routine over the weekend. The 21-year-old athlete from University of California, Los Angeles displayed a hip hop-inspired gymnast routine like no other — and seriously, we can't stop watching.

    With its psychedelic floral wallpaper, dark wooden panels and retro patterned carpets, it’s easy to see why this home was crowned ‘House of the Year’ at the Ideal Home Show in 1967. And the property hasn’t been touched since - even the kitchen and bathroom fittings haven’t had an update and the unique exterior staircase stands intact. The four-bedroom home in Birmingham is now going under the hammer, and is expected to fetch up to £240,000.

  • Autopsy reports found from 1929 Valentine's Day massacre

    Written by hand, the autopsies on the seven bullet-riddled bodies vividly describe why the Valentine's Day massacre of 1929 is still considered Chicago's most infamous gangland killing. The reports were recently unearthed with inquest transcripts from a warehouse after eight decades, and the Cook County medical examiner's office is now considering how best to preserve and display them. Executive officer James Sledge, a local history fan and a Chicago native, said he felt a chill down his back when he first read the documents outlining the attack at a Lincoln Park garage that left seven men dead and more than 160 machine-gun casings littering the scene.
