SteemSTEM Distilled #52

in #steemstem4 years ago

Welcome to the 52nd 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.

Proving Einstein wrong- Big Bell Test shows Einstein was wrong on spooky action at a distance

Physics by @langford and a beautiful post on the Big Bell Test that proves Einstein wrong. If you are into physics, then you surely want to read it.

An egyptology post by @laylahsophia, this time she discusses science in ancient Egypt. If you loved her past posts, you will definitely love this one too!

What does Thermodynamics say about the price of STEEM as the Blockchain's User base Increase?!🤔 @ The Simple Mices

A well-written post by @ced000 in an attempt to transfer the language of thermodynamics into the blockchain ecosystem. Read it to tell him what's your opinion!

The Blue Baby Syndrome (Part 1); Introduction To The Tetralogy of Fallot

Moving on to a post under the health tag, we have @conficker and the first part of a very interesting series. Here you will learn more about the Blue Baby Syndrome, read it before the second part comes out.

Understanding vicarious embarrassment. Feeling shame for others.

And some psychology for the end, @dedicatedguy discusses the feeling of vicarious embarassment, the state of feeling embarassed for other people. A reading you want to check out!

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).

This is incredible I was only today thinking that steem should promote independent research and science articles

I am wondering how they could do that. The costs for research are way above what you can imagine :)

Congratulations!! Your post was worth it! :D

Keep it up!

Hi, is it ok (encouraged?) to offer STEM related posts with a "steemstem" tag? Can the tag be other than number 1 to be seen? Thanks. I like this idea.

The tag (no matter it is first, second, ..., or last) is not mandatory, but it helps us to find the post. So it is recommended :)

Congratulations to all!. Thakns @steemstem. Regards.

Understand representative honesty. Shame for others. I really like a word like this.:) very interesting..

Greetings to the whole family family steemSTEM, it is nice to congratulate the winners who climbed post on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics I am sure that they will contribute to the academic growth of the users of the platform.

You just gotta love @steemstem! Always putting in that work.

Thanks for the provision of unending care and support for truly deserving authors. Got nothing but love for the whole entire @steemstem crew/team always!

Oh... dber is back?? Good, good.. Congrats to all the authors worth mentioning last week...

Apparently :)

It's nice having him back...The mycology guy, :P
