SteemSTEM Distilled #23

in steemstem •  last year  (edited)

Welcome to the 23th issue of SteemSTEM Distilled, a bi-weekly curation effort by the members of the @steemstem team.

We apologise for the delay in releasing this issue. Complications with timing arose due to the SteemSTEM meetup at CERN.

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.

For more details, a recent update on the steemSTEM can be found here, and a not so recent one there. Moreover, if you ask yourself about what it means to be part of steemSTEM, please check here.

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.


Referred Pain : A Glitch in the human Nervous System?

Did you know that it's possible to feel pain in distant body parts or organs from the ones that are really in trouble? Do you want to know what referred pain is? @himal explains it very well in his post.

Worried about the extinction of pre-historic animals? Well you should be thankful!!

Creatures that lived before us and no longer exist are the main topic of @florae's post. Follow her and learn more about animals whose names are just enough to give your spine the shivers of fear.


The Effects of Caffeine on Sports Performance

In this post from @exercisinghealth you will learn how caffeine, that sweet addiction, affects our body and our overall performance in sports.

Pathogenic microorganisms Part III - Viruses, Immunity and Vaccination

@scienceangel takes us explains what viruses are, along with the difference between DNA and RNA viruses. In her post you can also read about how herd immunity is established through vaccination.


Atomic Force Microscopy: Feeling is Seeing

Atomic force microscopy uses a type of microscope that provide pictures of atoms on or in surfaces, essentially giving us a look at objects on the atomic level.In his latest post, @ethandsmith teaches us all the basics!

Amazing Animals #21 The African Elephant

In another episode of amazing animals @amavi introduces us the african elephant "one the worlds most iconic creatures, famed for their sheer size, incredibly close social bonds and high level of intelligence".

A few words about the nomination process

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 and @lemouth.

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!

Links work just fine for me :/


Yep now they're working :) Immediately after the post they weren't though:/

These are really great articles. Especially the one about immunity. I have followed you. Chat are you all up to at CERN?

Thanks you Steemstem for all your amazing and non-stop supports . Keep up the good work 😁

On a lighter note you still need to do some fractional distillation just to be sure that you get rid of all impurities😂

Once again I’m late to the party! Thank you so much to @trumpman and @lemouth for featuring my “Amazing Animals” series. I massively appreciate all the support @steemstem gives to me.

Welldone @steemstem. Atleast those of us that may have missed a tonne of stuff could recap.

I'm gonna be paying attention to your blog here!
My biggest passion is science and science fiction, what i believe is science that still not researched or discovered in most cases... I wish i could write about science but truth is that i'm not an expert on any subject im more about knowing a little of a lot of different things...
I may do a post about science fiction authors soon but still not pure science...
Thanks for the initiative...looking forward to your resteems! :)

I think you would like this post and other posts from this user... maybe you already know him....

Nice updete




Thank you very much @steemstem for selecting my post for this week's distilled! :)
