SteemSTEM Distilled #49
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.
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.
@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.
@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.
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.
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.
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 :)
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!
