Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

We have started a brand new Show on Netroots Radio called "SciTech with Yuri and Rick". Both Rick and I are Science oriented Canadians who also care about US Politics. In our first show we introduce ourselves, we discuss the topics we will be covering on a regular basis and then we do a deep dive into the Chemistry of the Mars Rovers. The Mars Talk starts at about 16 minutes into the podcast if you want to fast forward to the Mars info, the Mars Chemistry discussion runs for 40 minutes..

I have a fair amount of humility, but I know that I know more than just about everyone outside the mission team, so I'm sharing what I know with you. If you like Science and Technology and topics like the Mars Rovers, we have the podcast you will like on the topic of Mars. We also have expertise regarding Fukushima which we will be talking about in the next week or two.

Our Radio Program Airs live on Netroots Radio Mondays at 6 pm eastern daylight time, 3 pm pacific and you can find our podcasts on Stitcher shortly thereafter.

Here is a link to our first podcast. I'd appreciate some feedback to figure out how to make the show better.

Our first podcast can be found here: Mars Curiosity Podcast


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).
