Forecasting Sweden's, Finland's rosters for potential 2021 World Cup
With news that the NHL is "cautiously optimistic" that current CBA talks might lead to a World Cup in February 2021, we've decided to predict what each team's roster could look like should the tournament take place. We adopted the NHL's format for the 2016 World Cup. Canada, the United States, Sweden, Finland, Russia, and the Czech Republic all send teams, while Team North America (players aged 23-and-under from Canada and the U.S.) and Team Europe (players from other European countries) round out the field. Teams are comprised of any combination of 20 skaters and three goalies.
If you've ever dreamed of sleeping underneath the Northern Lights, this might be your dream home - as long as you can stand the cold, that is.
A "snow igloo" in Pelkosenniemi, Finland is available to book on Airbnb from $122 a night, offering a "once in a lifetime opportunity" to sleep in a dome made of snow which is built by the hosts each winter.
Inside the igloo, which is located next to the Lake Pyhäjärvi and Pyhä-Luosto National Park, you'll find "real beds" and a "nice atmosphere with LED lights and white walls," according to the listing.
"It's always minus degrees inside the igloo," it goes on, adding that while a warm sleeping bag is provided, thermal layers, a warm hat, socks, and gloves are recommended, as well as a headlight or flashlight.
Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx: Reasons differ on what went wrong
Katie and Jamie had a "deep connection," but did the romance simply run its course, or was there more to it?
You can fit up to four people per igloo.
If you get too cold, don't fear - there's a "warm house" with toilets, a shower, a living room, and a small kitchen that guests are free to use any time of day (or night) if they're in need of some heat, while a light self-service breakfast is also provided.
Lucky guests may even have a chance of catching the Northern Lights.
Ryan, who stayed at the igloo in March 2019, wrote a review saying: "We were there for only one night but lucked out and saw the northern lights. Absolutely amazing."
He added: "While I expected the igloo to be fairly cold I was pleasantly surprised by how warm the sleeping bags were. We were very comfortable."
Another guest who stayed in February, Allison, wrote that the host, Antti, even took them "snow surfing" and provides husky rides.
"The igloo was also beautiful and very warm," Allison said. "There are beautiful open skies for aurora watching and it is right near the ski lodge in case you want to do any other kinds of activities related to that."
Airbnb landlords defend their work and the care of their properties.
They fell into operating Airbnbs when they lost their jobs. Then they fell in love with the hospitality business and the value of the service they provide to Toronto residents and visitors to the city, two multi-unit Airbnb hosts have testified at an appeal tribunal into the city’s long-term rental rules. It takes hard work and a hefty financial investment to run multiple short-term rentals, two operators told the provincial Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) on Tuesday.
