  • New Ontario child care rules come into effect today

    Heidi Higgins thinks of the children she looks after everyday 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 today, limits unlicensed home daycare providers to look after a maximum of two babies under the age of two, with a maximum of five children, including their own.

  • 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.

  • Here's the salary you have to earn to buy a home in 17 major US cities

    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.
