Welcome to the 71st issue of SteemSTEM Distilled, a curation effort by the members of the @steemstem team.
SteemSTEM aims to make Steem a better place for STEM, a task which we believe crucial for the long-term development of the blockchain. Our goals consist in invigorating and inspiring the minds of a community of STEM aficionados on Steem, targeting on the long-term the upgrade of SteemSTEM as a real platform for science communication. In the meantime, this goes through the support of quality, interesting and cutting-edge STEM content.
In order to support the best STEM content on Steem, our team scours the blockchain and read more than a couple of thousands of STEM-related posts per week. We hence support about 200 of these posts, and present in this distilled our top 8 handpicked choices for the last Thursday-Sunday period.
Monday - Wednesday
This (delayed) week begins with an excellent physics post by @zen-art on the dual nature of light. You will surely learn a lot by her, so don't skip this post, it might be long, but it is also very interesting!
Let's leave physics and move on to medicine and @yhubi who explains very well how blood tonic works. Were you among the ones who believed it actually produces more blood in your body? Well, you'd better read this post and you'll be in for a surprise!
Wednesday - Friday
What would a world without males be like? How would reproduction take place without having any boys around? @carlgnash has written a great post discussing just that... parthenogenesis! Don't miss this one!
Math lovers are you here? 'Cause we got an amazing math post by @mathsolver just for you! This is the second part of the Pigeon Hole Principle (yeah, it would be great if you could read the previous part too). We can't wait for more of his great math posts to come!
Saturday - Sunday
@chloroform's cool post comes next! You will love reading this piece on animals and their sexual behavior! Just don't feel bad if some of them seem to have sex more often than you.
The engineering slut, ah sorry, @kafilat is closing our week this time with a wonderful engineering post and applications of Bernoulli's equations. If you are into such subjects, then you will not regret reading this post!
For some time, the editorial team behind this distilled series is made of a one-woman-team, @ruth-girl, and she chooses her favorite posts (potentially discussing with other curators and/or the management). Posts written by the SteemSTEM team are excluded from the nomination process.
Please do not be discouraged if you did not make it on this issue. We are picking up in total 14 posts a week out of more than 200. The chances are thus low ;) In the meantime, you may wish to check these guidelines for extra tips on how your writing could be more effective.
In the spirit of being transparent about our actions that are now supported by @utopian-io, @curie, our delegators, our trailers and our manual curator supporters, we release every week the list of authors who have caught the attention of the @steemstem curation team.
Once again there will be no stats this week as everyone is on vacation or otherwise AWOL, including our resident stat mammouth (sp), @lemouth.
All curation rewards earned will be used to fund @steemstem project functioning and activities.
See you all next MonTuesday!
