SteemSTEM Distilled #49

in #steemstem4 years ago

Welcome to the 49th issue of SteemSTEM Distilled, a bi-weekly 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 6 handpicked choices for this Monday-Wednesday period.


Worlds together, worlds apart - Nuclear Paradox

@geekgirl discusses various matters of geopolitical nature on her series Worlds Together, Worlds Apart. The topic of her Monday post was the "nuclear paradox". Read on, reflect upon and tell her what your opinion is.

The Human Brain. Part One: Evolution

@flyyingkiwi has started a new series on the human brain. In this first episode we learn about the evolution of the brain. Don't miss it of you want to keep up with the next episodes.


Ketogenesis and Ketolysis: The sole reasons your brain doesn’t completely shut down during starvation.

Another great post is here, this one is written by @kingabesh who explains very well how our body manages to cope with starvation thanks to ketogenesis and ketolysis.

NATURE INSPIRED INVENTIONS --- Sonar System; and I measured the depth of the sea. It was on my Mark Twain!

An amazing series by @whileponderin, Nature Inspired Inventions, has another episode out! This time the topic is the sonar and how it was inspired by those beautiful mammals of the seas, the dolphins.


Airport Ground Operations - What goes on behind those NO ACCESS doors.

An excellent post of the #technology tag by @alexdory is here! A thorough presentation of the various working posts and processes that take place in an airport, as well as their contribution towards the facilities' smooth function and passenger satisfaction.

System on Chips: how the memory on your smartphone operate.

A lady from our nigerian community, @steep2308, has given us an interesting post on how mobile phone memories work. Give it a read, it's worth it.

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 mid-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 :)

Top steemSTEM authors

During the last two weeks, steemstem supported with more than a (possibly split) full vote the following authors:

@agbona, @alexdory, @alexs1320, @anaestrada12, @carloserp-2000, @chloroform, @dedicatedguy, @egotheist, @elvigia, @eurogee, @funmiakinpelu, @gentleshaid, @gra, @greenrun, @henrychidiebere, @joseangelvs, @kingabesh, @lemouth, @mrbreeziewrites, @pangoli, @procrastilearner, @rharphelle, @ruth-girl, @samminator, @sco, @sogless, @spaghettiscience, @temitayo-pelumi, @terrylovejoy, @whentone, @whileponderin, @zest

We are expecting them to strongly engage the community in return :)

All curation rewards earned will be used to fund @steemstem project functioning and activities.

See you all next Monday!


Better late than never! Congrats to everyone!

Great job Lè Founder @lemouth, congratulations to all the authors.

Thanks! :)

Guess our random variable got called once again....

Nice job sire!

It predicted the exact time I should post the distilled. And I followed it. I wanted the predictions match reality ;)

More job to do then..You're a coding guru yourself, I guess that wouldn't be so hard to achieve....

Nope, it is not so difficult ;)

Cool. Let it happen already.

True, congrats guys to those that featured keep rolling on.

Thanks for passing by :)

Does @ruth-girl even have a life outside the steemstem-curation-bubble? I'm starting to worry, management chained her to a desk forcing her to curate 24/7.

I have a life, I swear! It's the whole team that pulls this off ;)

We have whips. But don't repeat it, this is our little secret ;)

Congratulations to all the authors who made the list

Kudos to all involved in this great project from the management down to the least member like me

Well done authors!!! Congratulations to our featured users!!

I don't know what to say.. Am really honored.. Thank you so much.. To those who also made distilled and everyone that was voted, congratulations. We keep getting better and better.

How do you guys manage to pull this off? @lemouth and @ruth-girl.. More strength to your elbows.

We manage. The answer to the question is pretty simple: we have secret powers ;)

Lol.. Alright.. If only you will tell me how you guys got the power, I will like to have a little of this secret power too. You guys are doing a great job.

Your good work deserves it! ^_^

And just like @lemouth said: super powers!! :P

This is nicely done as usual. Thanks for the great job team.

Congratulations to everyone, people! Handpicked authors and not, management, curators and everyone involved!!
