  • 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 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

  • Canadian dollar strengthens as crude oil prices surge

    By Fergal Smith TORONTO (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar rose against its U.S. counterpart on Friday as a surge in oil prices supported the risk-sensitive commodity currency, even as solid U.S. retail sales data helped drive broader gains for the greenback. 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.

With the help of his fellow countrymen, the 16-year-old found his way to a youth shelter, which then passed him off to other community organizations that were largely ill-equipped to help a newly arrived refugee seeking sanctuary in Canada. The earliest arrivals were greeted by none other than Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who offered them handshakes, hugs and winter apparel.

  • 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.
