Welcome to the 24th episode of the stemng digest series where we bring to you some of the best posts under the #stemng tag in the past week.
For those that do not know yet, stemng is a sub-community of steemSTEM, a community-driven project which seeks to promote well-written and informative Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics posts by Nigerians on Steemit. The project involves submitting quality STEM-related posts to the steemSTEM management for upvoting and resteeming where applicable.
As we usually do, we have sifted through the stemng tag and even though there were several good posts to choose from, below are the posts that stood out for week #24.
Starting off this week is the post by @akiripromise which looks at the popular myth that human beings do not use 90% of their brain's capacity. A belief which the scientist has debunked. The article further explained where the popular myth stemmed from. For all the details click the link above.
Now we are on a journey to the Red Planet, Mars, and our guide is @humbledeen. The scientist is busy exploring the planet for hopes of a life with the Mars rovers collecting and sending data back to earth. The blog looks at the possibility of farming on Mars by showcasing the various techniques that can make this happen. If you are as intrigued as we are, click the link and check out the details.
You may not have known this, but @starrichie looks at hypertension as a disorder that could lead to dementia. The link between the two diseases was laid out in this blog post.
Tuesday post by @herbayomi looks at the breach of a symbiotic agreement between human skin and a microbiota (staphylococcus). The next thing that occurs is a formation of abscess as a result of skin and soft tissue infections. For more on this opportunist, bacteria do visit the blog.
If you have ever wondered why we are uniquely human beings and on top of the food chain then @samminator is here for you. The article shines a light on the attributes that distinguish us from the other species out there.
Thursday : A Time Machine - Prisoners of TIME
@agbona is here to take us on a magical journey into the past and future. The science fiction books, movies, and consumers of the genre are fascinated by the idea we can travel back in time. It is an idea which many may laugh off as a joke or something along that line. But some scientists genuinely believe in it, and they have theories to back their belief. For more in-depth knowledge of this intriguing science, please click the link to the blog.
The 2018 Football World Cup is ongoing, and millions of people around the world are watching the game in real time. The technology behind how that came to happen is what @lawkay's post is all about. For details and more go to the blog.
