  • Mapping the long and short of sex in your state. Spreadsheets, a sex activity app "track[s] your performance between the sheets." The app monitors movement and audio levels, using the phone's accelerometer and microphone. So how long is a sex act in the states?
Maryland is number 16 in the country, with a duration of 3 minutes 15 seconds. The Old Line State has a little old man in it.

Alaska limps in at number 51, with an apologetic 1 minute 21 seconds.

My single regret in life is that David McCallum of Brooklyn—a man incarcerated in 1985, the same year I was released, and represented by Innocence International since 2004—is still in prison. I request only that McCallum be granted a full hearing by the Brooklyn conviction integrity unit, now under the auspices of the new district attorney, Ken Thompson.
McCallum was 16 when he was imprisoned.
Kashkari, a former U.S. Treasury Department official, was asked about running the federal bank bailout when he described himself as “the guy you send in when, pardon me, the s--- is hitting the fan.”
A producer hit a button that prevented the comment from getting on the air and warned Kashkari "We don't cuss on the air." He apologized.
  • On today's encore Kagro in the Morning show, we were mid-sequester mania. Greg Dworkin's polling roundup; #GunFAIL; GideonAB on "pre-registration" of scientific studies; Senate paralysis over Hagel; CA "right track" polls way up since bouncing Rs from state gov't.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
