And a new distilled to start the week! Welcome to this 98th issue of SteemSTEM Distilled, a curation effort by the members of the @steemstem team. Two to go before 100!

We present in this distilled our top two handpicked post choices for the last week (from a couple of hundreds of STEM-related posts on Steem). This week's distilled highlights were selected by a one-man team made of @lemouth (as usual at the moment).
Still as usual, 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 us on Discord).
Our top choices
This week, our distilled gets botanical, with this nice post from @lupafilotaxia who enjoys sharing botanics information with the entire SteemSTEM world. The topic of the week concerns a plant named Eichhornia crassipes and available worldwide. But it was not like that before, so here are the environmental troubles. Plenty of information about this plant are provided in the post.
Do you want to know more about kidneys and their diseases? Yes? Then please visit the post of our Venezuelan doctoral student @mike961. He is telling us a lot about a kidney disease called the nephritic syndrome that impact the kidneys in a way they cannot play their role of blood purifier properly.
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 59 posts written by 47 authors. 21 of these posts have been posted through the app (and got a 5% stronger upvote). Among these 59 posts, we find:
- 21 small upvotes (less than 20%)
- 19 medium upvotes (in the 20%-50% range)
- 19 large upvotes (larger than 50%)
In addition, we have upvoted 43 comments posted through the app, written by 10 authors.
