SteemSTEM Distilled #29

in #steemstem4 years ago

Welcome to the 29th 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.

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.


Teardown/Explanation of an Electric Fly-Swatter

In his latest post, @proteus-h explains to us how an Electric Fly-Swatter works and breaks down one apart to show us what it's made off.

What I Learnt Last Week 14: Noise and The Brain, Your phone as a microscope, Osteoporosis' treatment, Ebola Vaccines, & The Lips movement and hearing

In another episode of his "What I learned This Week" series, @pearlumie introduces us to some really cool scientific tidbits he learned this week. Some of the things you will learn include how to use your phone as a microscope,a new osteoporosis treatment that is under way and a new Ebola vaccine.


MAN AND NATURAL DISASTERS --- Tornadoes; and the wind goes crazy yet again.

A tornado is a rapidly rotating column of air that is in contact with both the surface of the Earth and a cumulonimbus cloud or, in rare cases, the base of a cumulus cloud. Check out @whileponderin post to learn more about how they are formed, what causes them and what to do during one.

Space Invaders

Not all space invaders come from space, some invaders just come our space. And sometimes they enter the space of a delicate ecosystem, with destructive consequences.. Check out this really interesting post by @jozefkrichards to learn the impact of the new species that have invaded New Zealand.


Peculiarities of cancer cells --- Warburg Effect and Glutamate. Will there be a cure?

An incredibly informative article about cancer cells and their peculiarities. Did you know for example that cancer cells prefer anaerobic glycolysis even when the environment is abundant with oxygen? Check out the latest post of @tngflx to learn more

Isopod Got Your Tongue?

@branbello introduces us to Cymothoa exigua, one of the world's most interesting parasites. Commonly known as the tongue eating louse, this little guy actually replaces the host's tongue..with itself!

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.

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!


Wednesday, An incredibly informative article.

From fly killing electric circuits to tongue eating parasites these posts are great. Keep up the good work everyone!

It is truly nice to see how science & technology is a big deal and has its own place inside this community, I like it when those topics are under the spotligt.

Can we have more neurosciences & electrophysiology posts please?, I´m kinda working on a few & they will come soon enough...

Congratulations to all!. Thanks @steemstem. Regards.
