On The Road with Mike Drew: Looking for glorious Alberta gold

It was a strange little rainstorm. Heading north and east from the city, I could see what looked like a rain cloud on the horizon but I didn’t really think much about it. It was pretty much all alone, a biggish grey blot surrounded by a few other smaller and fluffier clouds. There looked to be a thin curtain of precipitation hanging underneath it but it was hard to say for sure. Where I was driving, east of Airdrie and west of Irricana, it was...

Famous body parts that weren't buried with their owners

Throughout history, practices around death and burial have been pretty weird. Victorian funeral portraits, where a dead person's body is posed for a photograph, are one fine example. At other periods, it was common practice to save a piece of a beloved or important person's body as a keepsake, or even a relic to worship. The opposite has also been true in cases where body parts were kept in order to symbolically torment the deceased. Under many different bizarre and horrifying circumstances, some of the most famous historical figures were buried without significant body parts! In some cases, these appendages became more famous than their owners... Click through the following gallery to learn more about these strange and macabre journeys.

The mysterious prehistoric city that has baffled scientists for years

In a remote region of the western Pacific Ocean lies a stunning and spooky unsolved mystery: the ruins of the ancient city of Nan Madol. Located next to the eastern shore of Micronesian island Pohnpei, this once-great, prehistoric city is comprised of nearly 100 geometrically shaped man-made stone islands, and it’s the only ancient city built atop a coral reef.

What is the "retirement curse" and how to avoid it

Society has a strange relationship with growing older, loaded with false expectations and somewhat backwards logic. Many of us will work through our best physical years, grow completely used to being instructed on what to do, then when you are a little more tired than before and likely more ready to sit for longer periods, you’re given all this free time and an allowance for fun. It’s supposed to be this incredible gift we give ourselves, but studies are showing it's turning out to be more of a curse than a blessing if you don't do it right.

The least-visited country in the world may be the first to disappear

One of the most naturally beautiful countries in the world is also one of the least visited, but most of us may never get to visit before the nation disappears. Tuvalu is an island country in the west-central Pacific Ocean, sitting about halfway between Australia and Hawaii. It’s a coral atoll nation, which means it sits on a ring-shaped coral reef encircling a lagoon, with islands along the rim.

The bizarre burial requests of Queen Victoria

Queen Victoria was one of the most influential monarchs in British history. So much so that the long period she ruled was named the Victorian era. During this time, it was common to attach much greater significance to burials when someone died. Life expectancy was much shorter, and death was a part of everyday life. Attaching more ritual and meaning to the manner of burial helped to deal with this difficult reality. Many people left instructions for their funeral and burial, and Queen Victoria was no exception. In fact, the woman left a detailed 12-page manual! She was known for her eccentricities, and this certainly comes across in her last wishes... Intrigued?
