  • Vintage 'snowbugs' still rule parts of Canada's north

    All across the frozen tundra of Northern Canada, giant "snowbugs" continue to roam the land. Of course these bugs don't have legs and antennae — instead they are outfitted with tracks and skis. Rarely seen in the South, snowbugs have long been a common sight in Canada's North. A cross between a van and a snowmobile, "bugs" provide a warm comfortable commute to places you just can't reach by road. Mervin Aubichon hits the gas as his 1956 Bombardier flies across Churchill Lake, near the town of Buffalo Narrows, in northern Saskatchewan.

The rally in the Canadian dollar is "a function of what oil prices have done today," said David Tulk, chief Canada macro strategist at TD Securities, who views the rebound in oil as position-driven.

  • Read Jennifer Jones’s Rambling, Distraught Letter to Her Husband About John Huston

    If you ever wanted to know what it was like to work with John Huston or Humphrey Bogart, Jennifer Jones would have been the person to ask. In this exchange between the eccentric Hollywood megastar and her husband, super-producer David O. Selznick, Jones describes the seemingly excruciating experience of shooting Huston’s Beat the Devil (1953) opposite Bogie in Southern Italy. Selznick’s indignant telegrammed responses prove that, whatever you can say about his treatment of Jones (whose name he changed from Phylis Lee Isley), he didn’t want anyone else messing with his wife. The pair’s correspondence is recorded in Jean Stein’s West of Eden: An American Place (Random House), an oral history centered on five families, in including Stein’s own, spanning from the 1930s to the present.

  • The life and death of Abraham Lincoln (19 photos)

    Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, held the office from March 1861 until April 1865. John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Lincoln on April 14, 1865, at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C.  Lincoln was born Feb. 12, 1809, in Kentucky; his family moved to Indiana in 1816, then to Illinois in 1830. Lincoln was elected to the Illinois State Legislature in 1834. He was against slavery. Lincoln was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1846; he didn’t seek reelection at the end of his term. He joined the Republican Party, formed mainly in opposition to slavery that was extending through the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854. This act allowed voters to decide whether their territory could have slaves or be free. Lincoln fought the Kansas-Nebraska Act in debates.  In May 1860, the Republicans chose Lincoln as their presidential candidate. He won the election and began serving in March 1861. The Confederacy, formed by seven Southern slave states before Lincoln took office, seceded from the Union. He was the president of the United States through the Civil War, which started in April 1861. On Jan 1, 1863, during the Civil War, he issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which stated that all individuals who were held as slaves “henceforward shall be free.” Lincoln was reelected in 1865, and on April 9, 1865, the confederacy’s commander of the Army of Virginia, Gen. Robert E. Lee, surrendered to the Union general, Ulysses S. Grant, and the civil war was over. Lincoln was able to end slavery. John Wilkes Booth fatally shot Lincoln on April 14, 1865, at Ford’s Theater in Washington, D.C., and he died the following morning. (AP) See more politics-related slideshows on Yahoo Politics
