  • New Ontario child care rules come into effect today

    Heidi Higgins thinks of the children she looks after every day as her "extended family" but to comply with revamped rules for Ontario child care she had to tell one little boy's parents to find a different caregiver. Higgins, the co-founder of the Coalition of Independent Childcare Providers of Ontario, runs an unlicensed daycare at her home in south Ottawa. The new law, which takes effect Monday, limits unlicensed home daycare providers to look after a maximum of two children under the age of two, where previously they could care for five children of any age.

  • Ashley Madison's members by the numbers

    Now that data analysts and number-crunchers have had about 10 days to pore over hacked data from infidelity website Ashley Madison, fascinating but somewhat suspect findings are coming out. Data analyst Jishai Evers, the CEO of the data-driven journalism website Dadaviz, says it's not only that "users are lying" but also that "Ashley Madison created fake accounts or didn't do much to stop others creating fake accounts" that makes the data problematic. Ashley Madison did not verify email addresses.

  • Teacher who was allowed to keep job despite being late 111 times says he was eating breakfast

    An elementary school teacher who was allowed to keep his job despite being late for work 111 times in two years said Friday that breakfast is to blame for his tardiness. "I have a bad habit of eating breakfast in the morning, and I lost track of time," 15-year veteran teacher Arnold Anderson told The Associated Press. In a decision filed Aug. 19, an arbitrator in New Jersey rejected an attempt by the Roosevelt Elementary School in New Brunswick to fire Anderson from his $90,000-a-year job, saying he was entitled to progressive discipline.

The Cruise Bar’s page was quickly inundated with angry comments from the public. Jane Oakley unloaded, writing, “Thanks Cruise Bar for so openly showing your contempt for women and contributing to the disgusting view that women’s bodies are just a utensil.

Miller also told jurors the prosecutor had a "slam dunk" and he knew they would put him on death row.

    Mortgage website HSH.com has updated its estimate of how much annual income a household would need to buy a home in major metropolitan areas in the US, according to second-quarter 2015 data. The site looked at median home prices from the National Association of Realtors, along with interest rates for common 30-year, fixed-rate mortgages and property taxes and insurance costs, to figure out how much money it would take to pay a median-priced home's mortgage, taxes, and insurance in each city — and how much you would have to earn to afford it.

  • 20 Things That Happen When You Stay at a Sandals Resort (29 photos)

    Whether you're 9 years old or 90 years old, you've probably seen an ad for Sandals Resorts. (Think iconic cursive logo set against a beachy backdrop.) While it may seem like a massive operation, the all-inclusive chain remains intimate and family-owned, just like when it was founded in 1981. Today, the company boasts five brands and 24 properties throughout the Caribbean, including places like the Bahamas, Jamaica, and most recently, Grenada. Sandals invited me to visit their newest resort - formally called Sandals LaSource Grenada - in late April to find out what the property is actually like beyond the commercials. The place is as beautiful as you can imagine, and the clientele ranged from couple friends in their late 20s and 30s to elderly pairs celebrating their decades-long anniversaries. Although Sandals often offers sales, prices aren't exactly cheap - you'll most likely drop more than $1,000 per night. If you're thinking of staying at a Sandals resort anytime soon, here's what you can expect.

  • Obama moves to change name of North America's tallest mountain; Mount McKinley, to Denali

    President Barack Obama will change the name of North America's tallest mountain peak from Mount McKinley to Denali, the White House said Sunday, bestowing the traditional Alaska Native name on the eve of a historic presidential visit to Alaska. By renaming the peak Denali, an Athabascan word meaning "the high one," Obama is wading into a sensitive and decades-old conflict between residents of Alaska and Ohio. Alaskans have informally called the 20,320-foot (6,194-meter) mountain Denali for years, but the federal government recognizes its name evoking the 25th president, William McKinley, who was born in Ohio and assassinated early in his second term.
