SteemSTEM Distilled #100
Here we are! 100 distilled and slightly late (summer time, family visiting, etc. However, our usual trend being 'better late than never', here is our 100th episode. Just for the fun and providing useless numbers, the first distilled was published on September 25, 2017. 7 posts were highlighted and three of the featured authors are still active SteemSTEM authors (@tking77798, @valth and @laylahsophia). Anyways, it is time to go back into present and welcome you to this new episode of our curation effort!
We remind that the SteemSTEM community can be easily reached out on the SteemSTEM discord server, where most our active members are available to chat with anyone on a daily basis.

We present in this distilled our top two handpicked post choices for the last week, i.e. the 27th week of 2019. As usual, our selection committee consisted in a one-man team made of @lemouth, and some statistics are given at the end of this post.
Please do not be discouraged if you did not make it on this issue. The chances to be picked are low. In the meantime, you may wish to check these guidelines for extra tips on how your writing could be more effective (or ask for a mentor on Discord).
Our top choices
As a first selection, we decided to pick a post by. @agmoore2 in which the Aleutian islands are discussed among all their aspects. History, geology, people, culture, etc. Everything is nicely covered. Moreover, reading this post will allow you to discover the Unangan people and how they manage to go through time.
For the second post of the week, we decided to highlight a post from @emiliomoron who describes how fun can be obtained with chemistry and cupric sulfate. Be ready for a few experiments, explained in all their details, and please consider reproducing them (in a controlled manner) at home.
SteemSTEM offers support to anyone using our app, steemstem.io. We recall that:
- Posting an article through the app automatically yields a 5% stronger upvote at curation time.
- Posting a reply to an article (or to another reply) from the app can sometimes yield some SteemSTEM support.
- Setting @steemstem as a beneficiary to the post automatically yields a stronger upvote (up to 5%).
Last week, the SteemSTEM curator teams have supported 50 posts written by 36 authors. 25 of these posts have been posted through the app (and got a 5% stronger upvote). Among these 50 posts, we find:

- 11 medium upvotes (in the 20%-50% range)
- 26 large upvotes (larger than 50%)
In addition, we have upvoted 36 comments posted through the app, written by 8 authors.
