How to watch the Kentucky Derby in Canada without cable?

My friend who lives in Toronto and I in the U.S. have a longstanding annual tradition of watching the Derby together while chatting online. However, this year there is a snag - she recently gave up cable, which is how she was previously watching it, to help with the household budget. I'm trying to find a way for her to watch online.

How to find modern, indie sewing patterns?

I've been sewing more and more garments for myself lately, but I'm having trouble finding patterns that I like. I know about the more well-known, big pattern companies out there, but a lot of them don't really suit my style. I've had more luck with independent designers recently and I want to find more!

"Why would you hesitate to do what you have already done?"

I would like to replay the entire Halo series, once, with my husband on our local system. We don't have an xbox (but we do have a good gaming PC). It's been years since I paid attention to anything xbox or the world of halo. Can you please advise me the best way to get the hardware and software I need to make this happen? (Renting is acceptable if that is still a thing, so is emulating if it actually works).

A stopwatch for space instead of time

Can you recommend an iOS app (10.3.3 max) that allows you to record your location in the most rapid, direct, and idiotproof way possible? Something like a button that takes up most of the screen that you just tap once and done. It needs to save the location as lat/long coordinates. Ideally, it would have an option for displaying the recorded location in degrees and decimal minutes, but any of the degree-based notations would be acceptable.

Tiki Party - how does one even?

I have been into Tiki Culture for the past several years, I even have a Tiki Bar in my house! Yet... when trying to create ideas for an annual party (as in 50-100 adults), I'm a little overwhelmed about what to do without it coming out tacky yet... I don't want to spend a fortune.

Can You Help Me Fix a Habit

So, this time last year, I was embarking on what would become a 9-month streak of practicing piano really consistently 6 days a week at a very low intensity of practice session length (~15 minutes). I was doing well at being consistent and sort of letting that be its own reward, but not making a lot of progress. There were some life changes, my income went up, I moved, and I got a teacher! And now that I have an external force of motivation, I... somehow cannot practice to save my life? [more inside]

March Madness - who pays for X-rays?

If you were injured in an NCAA tournament and received onsite X-rays (!?), who’s paying for that? The player’s health insurance? Is it in-network or out? Do teams have a separate insurance policy? The tournament? Is the player out co-pays or deductibles? What happens with a serious injury that requires hospitalization? I’m watching basketball and SO curious.
