Cases of infectious diseases per 100,000 people in US states over time.

Public works projects in 1930s on greatly improved sanitation to the point where children 3 and under were unlikely to become infected with polio. Polio is not typically dangerous to infants and toddlers, and is sometimes asymptomatic, so it began creating a situation where people were unlikely to be infected by a constant low background rate during a time when it would be confused for just a cold.

At this scale, LSD would be somewhere outside the window to your right.

Nathan MacKinnon got a hat trick in last night's Avs win against Tampa Bay. He only took 3 shots on goal in the game and all 3 went in.

Avs just need to win umm... 3/4ths of the remaining games to make the playoffs.

How loud nature in the US.

How loud things are in the US with people included. Mostly it correlates just with population density.

Crusader Kings 2 is having a free weekend to celebrate 3 years since release. A thing of stats was also released to show how it's changed over the years etc.:
(click to show/hide)
1.1 million copies sold is crazy for a strategy game, and mean playtime is 99 hours. That's crazy high. I wonder how it changes for median, i.e. it would be my guess that a lot of people give it a shot for 1-10 hours and don't immediately see the game mechanics so give up while the remainder who have over 10 hours probably play for quite a long time.

Not quite, but close. NHLer here is playing either 25 games in 1 season or 6+ games played per season in multiple seasons. 20% of the top 30 players drafted do not ever hit that.

David Cameron was given an early preview of the next yearly edition of Train Simulator. What secrets were revealed to him about the top train simulation game in the world?

Beck is way bigger than Beyonce. I don't even know what the heck Kanye is talking about.

Beck is referenced in the lyrics of the song Get Em High by people's voice of the generation, Kanye West. In Get Em High, Mr. West says "My teacher said I'm a loser, I told her why don't you kill me", a clear reference to Beck.

So I don't even know what this Kanye guy is trying to say when one of the most important artists of our generation, Mr. West, clearly knows and loves Beck.

That hold up, wait a minute sort of gesture he does before shaking his head, walking off grinning down at Beyonce is amazing.

Preferred method of execution by state over time. Of note, Utah switched to preference for lethal injection in 1987 but anyone who was initially convicted before then was allowed to request which manner of execution they wanted, so Utah's last firing squad execution was in 2010. That was someone who had been convicted but had a long appeals process then the state tried to delay it a long time because they were worried that executing by firing squad would cause a backlash that would eliminate the death penalty. Eventually the state relented when they thought they would lose a court battle over it.

Roy hasn't just done it before and had some success, he's had an incredible amount of success. Statisticians have been saying that 90 seconds was too conservative a time for 10 years now and Roy has listened and other coaches have followed. Bruce Boudreau and Jack Capuano do it now at 3 minutes as well. If MacKinnon hadn't messed up then Brad Stuart hadn't lost his footing, it could have worked again. Roy averages 2:45 remaining, of the 14 times he pulled the goalie with more than 2 minutes remaining last season, there were 4 times where it took over 90 seconds to get a goal that sent it to overtime, and 3 of those were wins that gave 7 points they shouldn't have had. For this season Roy has done it 19 times so far, 14 of them with more than 2 minutes, 4 of them have resulted in a goal that forced an overtime that took more than 90 seconds to score, resulting in 2 wins and 2 losses. This is nearly 3 points better than the league average when down this late. Yes it failed last night, but it succeeds more than the league average and when it fails, well fuck you lose most games you're trailing that late anyhow.

Patrick Roy will pull the fucking goalie when the statistics say it works best.

6 on fucking 3.

Patrick Roy has read the statistics of when to pull the goalie and has tried them out in practice as a juniors coach and they hold true. The Avs with Roy's aggressive goalie pull strategy win 1 more game and force an overtime loss 1 more time than conventional goalie pull strategy does.

A Newhall father was charged today for the sexual abuse, torture and murder of his 19-day-old daughter.

Authorities charged 30-year-old Matthew Brendan Warner for a long list of disturbing acts, which includes murder, assault on a child causing death, torture, oral copulation or sexual penetration with a child under 10, and aggravated sexual assault of a child, according to the L.A. County District Attorney's Office.

According to the criminal complaint, Warner's wife left their daughter, Ellorah Rose Warner, with her husband while she went to work last Friday, reported the Santa Clarita Valley Signal. Warner allegedly told his wife that the baby had gone missing, so they went to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station to report it.

The next day at 7:30 a.m., deputies discovered the baby's body in the cab of a truck parked in a lot on the 20600 block of Newhall Avenue, just a half mile away from the family's apartment which is on the 21300 block of Alder Drive, reported CBS Los Angeles. Warner reportedly led the deputies to his daughter's body. He was arrested on suspicion of murder.

The newborn's grandmother told CBS Los Angeles that on the morning of the baby's death, she heard Warner use a strange and stern tone with the child, and also heard a muffled cry coming from the bedroom. She said neighbors told her that they later saw Warner leave the apartment carrying a bundle.

The baby's mother, who has not been identified, has not been arrested and is cooperating with investigators, reported KABC. Authorities said she was extremely distraught. It's unlikely that she'll face any charges.

According to court documents, Warner had been arrested three times last year. The arrest charges included suspicion of possessing a controlled substance and for violating his parole.
He is being held on $2.25 million bail and could face a maximum sentence of life in state prison if he is convicted. He will be arraigned in court on Feb. 18.
