SteemSTEM Distilled #48

in #steemstem4 years ago

Welcome to the 48th issue of SteemSTEM Distilled, a curation effort by the members of the @steemstem team.

SteemSTEM is a community driven project which seeks to promote well-written and informative Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics posts on Steemit. The project involves curating STEM-related posts through upvoting, resteeming, offering constructive feedback, supporting scientific contests, and other related activities.

For more details, a recent update on the steemSTEM can be found here, and a not so recent one there. Moreover, if you ask yourself about what it means to be part of steemSTEM, please check here.

Our team scours the platform for original and quality content.

After working through thousands (literally!) of STEM-related posts and upvoting more than 150 that we deemed to be worthy, we proudly present you our top 8 handpicked choices for this Thursday-Sunday period.


Forecasting Active Disasters

When you see @gra's username on your feed, you know that you're in for an excellent piece of work. In this post you can see how GIS can be of help forecasting imminent disasters. The example used here is Kilauea, Hawaii, that has recently caused major disasters.

Ocean Energy: Energy from The Ocean Waves - Part 1

@pratik27 has been trying to teach us more about energy we can get from the ocean. In this beautiful post, you can learn more about waves and how we can reap electricity from them.


Gastro #1 : The Liver - "Breaker of Waste, Mother of Metabolism, Khaleesi of K(C)oagulation"

A fantastic post from the #health tag by @soulesque. You do want to give this a read and learn more about one of the most important organs in our body, the liver.

Directed Energy Weapons - the future of modern warfare. [2nd chapter]

A series that will capture your interest is here by @ied. Read on to find out what future wars will be like with the use of particle beam weapons.


The Universe of the Intelligent Microbe--The Biofilm

A very interesting post on the biofilm by @agmoore. No, this has nothing to do with the cinema, it's all about biology. Read on to learn more!

Warning! Warming! How Global Warming Affects Polar Bears

Animals and environment are coming up next with a wonderful post by @biologist on polar bears and how global warming is affecting those residents of the North.


CELL SUSTENANCE #2: Albumin; meet the workaholic polypeptide.

A wonderful biology post that deserves a lot more attention is here by @joelagbo. Read on to learn more about the protein called: albumin.

NORMAL MICROBIAL FLORA: their role in tooth decay (dental caries), mouth odour, body odour and pimples formation

It seems like biology had a lot of entries these days. The last pick for Sunday is @cyprianj's great post on microbial flora, the microbial population that lives within our body.

A few words about the nomination process

For the sake of transparency we feel we need to clarify how our nomination process works; each issue is compiled by certain members of the SteemSTEM community. This week's editorial team was comprised of @ruth-girl.

The editorial team chooses their favorite posts for the week and each issue is the result of their joined effort. In order to keep the process fair, posts written by the editorial team are excluded from the nomination process.

Don't be discouraged if you didn't make it on this issue. The competition is harsh and there is always a next time :) In the meantime, you may wish to check these guidelines for extra tips on how your writing can be more effective.

Authors That Received a Curie Upvote by the SteemSTEM Team

In the same spirit of being transparent about our actions that are now supported by @curie, we will release every week a list of authors who have caught the attention of the @steemstem curation team.

If you want to discuss this with us, please do not hesitate to join the steemSTEM discord server or to follow our curation trail (just ask us for more information on the chat for details).

Congratulations to all the writers featured on the list

It takes hard work to make this list... 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

It does but the final outcome is worth it! :)

How do I become member because using the tag didn't get me to the list

Seams if you are not a member you won't be listed.....still learning about steemit tho

We only list people that are voted by both @curie and @steemstem here. And the list is two weeks old (you can check the dates).

Anyone is then welcome to be a member of the community. Step 1 is to join us on discord, which you already did (and where you are quite active! thanks!). So in fact, you are now part of us ;)

In order to get support, maybe the best would be to get in touch with our mentors ;)

Congrats to all of the authors!

Felicidades a los seleccionados

@therealwolf 's created platform smartsteem scammed my post this morning (mothersday) that was supposed to be for an Abused Childrens Charity. Dude literally stole from abused children that don't have mothers ... on mothersday.

Please remove your link. This steemstem's distilled post is not a place for promoting your work (regardless of the topic). Thanks in advance for your understanding.
