SteemSTEM Distilled #116

in steemstem •  20 days ago  (edited)

Since your usual one-man distilled team is tied to a chair, hanging off the roof of some evil genius' penthouse balcony, this week's 116th distilled will be authored by me (Could be anyone).

For those who do not know what SteemSTEM is, please take a look here or come say hi on Discord or in the Steem Chat.

Climate Predictions Are Useless – So What?

Here, @egotheist discusses the recent distrust of climate science as a result of inaccurate p predictions - and why that is irrelevant. Using examples of complex systems, he makes the argument that predictions - right or wrong - have an extremely vital place in our consciousness and they should not be dismissed. Read on to find out why!

Organography and Plant Histology of Hydrocotyle umbellata (Araliaceae)

@lupafilotaxia takes a deep look into the water coin, a plant often used medicinally around the world which has the added benefit of functioning as a bioindicator of pollutants. How? Find out by clicking the link! You'll be introduced to an intimate introduction to this powerfully invasive and prolific species, getting a microscopic window into the plant's very soul.

Thank you @steemstem (mobbs and lemouth), for another issue of the distilled. I always look forward to it! Congratulations to all the supported authors and the handpicked ones :)

@tipu curate

Upvoted 👌 (Mana: 5/15)

Excellent distillate, statistics have decreased a bit, but I'm sure that soon will increase the number of high quality publications, plus that our app is increasingly used to write content. Great

Even with the " usual one-man distilled team is tied to a chair", you manage to get an issue out. I personally don't underestimate the work that goes into this. Distilled is an important link for the SteemSTEM community.
Tweeting it out, and resteeming.
Thank you!

Thank you very much for your support and congratulations to all the authors mentioned in this report. :)
