Help with streaming tv from the Great (Currently Not So) White North

TQC, I have cut out cable/satelite for a while to save some money, but I am a news junkie and I hear there is another missing plane and I must watch the endless, repetitive coverage. All I have is an ipad, and I'm in Canada. Is there a way to watch CNN online? Their official site shuts me out because I'm not in the US, and the streaming sites I came up with on my own won't play nice with my ipad. If anyone knows a trick for me, please share.

How often do you have house guests? Who comes to stay at your house? Do you enjoy it? Do you go out of your way to be a good hostess?

This is inspired by the fact that I just had my SO's family at my house for two days and I am completely drained from it. I am so crazy about keeping my house clean that it drives me insane to have people having my stuff out of place. And I feel so much pressure to cater to them and do everything that I didn't sit down for a minute. I don't think I could do this more than once a year and I don't think I even want it then!

Steam Icon

This Christmas I set up a Steam account for my nephew and found out that my brother also has one he barely uses. I added them both as my friends and spotted this 'person icon' next to their names in the friendslist when checking either of their profiles:



I've never seen this before, as far as I remember. None of my other friends has it, and there's also no mouse-over explanation. They're both Level 1, so maybe this is the connection, but what does it mean?
(At least in my nephew's case I know he confirmed his email address properly.)

Edit: Thank you guys, now I understand! ^^

Guardians of the Galaxy pink girl?

Near the beginning of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, the hero hides an alien girl with fuschia skin inside a compartment. What happened to her after that? Did I miss something? Or did she just spend the duration of the film sleeping down there?

how to manage your gym bag

How do you use your gym bag? Do you pack it up before you go to the gym and unpack it after you get back, or is there stuff that can just stay in there? Are there some things that you bought extra of so you would have one (or several) for home and one (or several) for the gym?
