Jamaica's sweet lodgings over the water, atop the sea

(A big deal is happening: the first overwater bungalows in the Caribbean were to open Dec. 2. Similar to overwater bungalows in French Polynesia, Jamaica's Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay has figured out how to put the romantic lodgings safely in Caribbean waters.

Game review: 'Just Dance 17,' gets kids off the couch and into the virtual club

Parents need to know that "Just Dance 2017" is a dancing game. The game's music library includes a wide variety of dance songs, some of which include the occasional suggestive lyrics and/or dance moves. The game does require internet access in order to link to a UPlay Rewards account, public global platform for sharing, or compete online with the rest of the world. In-game ads for DLC, including "Unlimited" streaming service and premium songs, add pressure to players to spend real money beyond the price of the actual game.
