Welcome to the 27th 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.
This is the second part of @exercisinghealth's amazing video series, explaining us why people were skinnier 40 years. He has done a really good job both visually and in delivering the actual scientific facts!
Phobias are intense, unjustified and extremely hard to control fears that people experience before a certain situation or circumstance. In his latest post from his phobia-related series, the @dedicatedguy gives us all the basics we need to know about them.
Ever wondered why we count to 10 instead of 8, 9, 11 or12? Could there actually be a better counting system than the one we use today? @rocking-dave has the answer!
@erh.germany shares another very interesting case from her work, this time a young adult that she has been coaching up the last three months.
@scienceangel gives us a thorough introduction to the "language" of genetics and explains us what fancy words like genotype, phenotype, genes, alleles and population genetics model actually mean!
You have probably heard at some point of your life somebody talking about the Fibonacci numbers and how cool they are. If you have no idea what's so fun about them then make sure to read this post by @singhbinod08 to learn more!
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 @trumpman.
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 :)
All curation rewards earned will be used to fund @steemstem project functioning and activities.
See you all next Monday!
