The non-PC guide to policing: How to apprehend a criminal, 1907-style

The non-PC guide to policing: How to apprehend a criminal, 1907-style

The grainy black-and-white images look as if they belong in a Keystone Kops silent comedy. But their intention was deadly serious. These pictures feature real police officers demonstrating the art of self defence in a force instruction manual issued more than 100 years ago.

It's Tesla's World – We're Just Reinventing It

Nova Scotia's church star map mystery

An attempt to restore a Nova Scotia church has revealed a mysterious arrangement of stars: Parishioners at one of Canada's oldest Anglican churches will be puzzled by an enduring enigma when they gaze heavenward this Christmas.
