If you're a football fan (and probably even if you aren't), you are aware that we're closing in on the Super Bowl. This year's event is unique in that it is the first Super Bowl held in an outdoor, cold-weather site — New Jersey, to be specific. However, the 2014 game shares many similarities to past Super Bowls in terms of what it took for the two teams to arrive at this point. And some of these same characteristics apply to successful investors.

During the London premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Nelson Mandela's daughters, Zindzi and Zenai, got the news that their father had passed away.

About 45% of Americans usually make New Year's resolutions, according to a survey from the University of Scranton. But the same survey shows that only 8% of us actually keep our resolutions. Perhaps this low success rate isn't such a tragedy when our resolutions involve things like losing a little weight or learning a foreign language.
