An index fund is safer, because with an index fund you are diversified and you've minimized your risks. The more stocks you own (and an index fund represents an investment in many, many stocks), the worse your overall returns will be. With an index fund you own the good, the pretty good, the average, the below average, and the awful.

LEIPZIG, Germany (AP) — American Jesse Marsch is no longer coach of Bundesliga team Leipzig. The club said Sunday that the two had “mutually agreed to end the cooperation. That is the result of an in-depth analysis and intensive discussions” after Friday’s 2-1 loss at Union Berlin.

Leipzig said Marsch, who took over in the of

Mikel Arteta has admitted his concern at Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s struggles in front of goal, but denies there is any rift between the pair. The Gabon striker’s poor form continued with spurned chances in Thursday’s frustrating 3-2 defeat by Manchester United, while he also produced a miss of the season contender during the win over Newcastle last weekend. Aubameyang has now failed to score in each of his last five matches, while three of the seven he has notched in all competitions so far this term came in the same match - the 6-0 Carabao Cup demolition of Championship side West Brom back in August.

LESBOS, Greece (AP) — Pope Francis returned Sunday to the Greek island of Lesbos to offer comfort to migrants at a refugee camp and blast what he said was the indifference and self-interest shown by Europe “that condemns to death those on the fringes.” “Please, let us stop this shipwreck of civilization!” Francis said at the Mavrovouni camp, a cluster of white U.N. containers on the edge of the sea lined by barbed wire fencing and draped with laundry hanging from lines. Arriving at the camp, a m
Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/GettyApart from technology, it is hard to think of any aspect of daily life which has changed so radically in one generation as the way we eat. For a child growing up in the London suburbs in the 1970s with parents who were open to the new culinary influences from the continent and beyond but in a cash-strapped, unconfident, British way, food was both a comfort and a terror. Twice a day we convened around the oak, gate-leg table in the liv
