SteemSTEM Distilled #30

in #steemstem5 years ago (edited)

Welcome to the 30th issue of SteemSTEM Distilled, a 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 8 handpicked choices for this Thursday-Sunday period.


Visiting CERN, an insider's perspective

Ever dreamt to come to CERN? @steemstem did it. And @freyablekman guided us inside the LHC. She is now detailing us the perspective of the guide, which is slightly different from the one of the tourist.

Superheroes of the microbe world series #2: The bacteria who puts superglue and Spiderman’s web to shame.

A series on amazing bacteria that do not deserve being neglected covers Caulobacter crescentus and its unique "super powers". Read on to see what @thethinkingdr has for us in this episode.



A new engineering blog has entered the #steemstem tag. Read @lordneroo's introduction in Geodesy and follow him if you don't want to miss the next parts coming out soon.

Animal Series #9: Outrun The Fastest Animal Alive

A wonderful post on the Speedy Gonzalez of the animal kingdom, the cheetah. @chloroform gives details on the life and super-speed powers of these amazing cats, don't miss it!



What is reality? A very complex topic that may change from one person to another one. Objectivity is indeed impossible. @erh.germany is telling us more about that.

The Cheetah vs The Wolf

Which one is better? Which one is faster? Which one can run longer? And what about humans? @exercisinghealth is actually not discussing animals at all, but actually human performances.


A day in the future”: blind people, now with better vision than you

Technology helps us. In the future, we cam expect bionic eyes to solve many issues people with damaged eyes are facing. More information on this topic with this post of @dedicatedguy.

Endangered Species #12 The Ruffed Lemurs

Our dear @amavi continues her series about endangered animal species. This time, we are heading to Madagascar to discover lemurs and how the bloody humans are threatening them.

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 week's editorial team was comprised of @ruth-girl 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 :) In the meantime, you may wish to check these guidelines for extra tips on how your writing can be more effective.

Authors That Received a Curie Upvote by the SteemSTEM Team

In the same spirit of being transparent about our actions that are now supported by @curie, we will release every week a list of authors who have caught the attention of the @steemstem curation team.

If you want to discuss this with us, please do not hesitate to join the steemSTEM discord server or to follow our curation trail (just ask us for more information on the chat for details).

From February 17 to February 24, we rewarded 175 different authors who have written a total of 261 different articles. The authors who received both a @steemstem and a @curie vote that week are:

You have done a great job, guys! Keep it up! :)

You too with part of the selection :)

Oh yes, we do a great job too! ^_^

Congratulations to all nominees and voted people! This was a great week and the choice was tough!

It's always tough picking interesting posts in the midst of interesting posts.

Thanks a lot! I should have more for the community :D
I really appreciate being part of it. I am thinking of investing a little in Steem and SteemSTEM if the market starts to move sideways. My current investments in altcoins are dropping so I might as well change to Steem before SMT launch? Good move or bad, I still don't know!

Who knows? :D

@steemstem @curie Thank you so much! It's a true honor for me to be included in this issue of SteemSTEM Distilled.

Thank you for supporting my work! I can't stress enough how grateful I am.

Highest Regards

It is also a pleasure to read your posts! Thanks for your contributions!

Thank you for your kind words, @lemouth!

Well done to all the selected authors!! I think I found a broken link, @lemouth can you check the link about the visiting CERN post?

Fixed! Thanks ^^

Thank you, Team!
I'm delighted to be included in the mentions.
I wonder how many hours it took you. Can you say that?
yours Erika

In my case, steemstem takes more than 40 hours per week. And for some other team members, it takes the same amount of time...

phew! That's a lot!
I will not post that much anymore ;-)

Do you want to lessen your hours? Are helpers in sight?

edit: Oh nooo, now I even gave you some more work!

If we work less, less rewards for stem on steemit... But at some point, it is really hard to keep up (especially when people complain) :(

Wooow thank you Mr @steemstem .Good job !

Wow! You have taking me back to my old self in high school were we have such in the chemistry lab. You good hope to learn from you by following you

You are welcome! :)

Congratulations to everyone who got voted and nominated.GOOD JOB TEAM 🙏!

you are welcome!


Conggrat to every one...

Conggrat to every one. I am on the list. :D

Congratulations everyone!

work like this must b taken to another whole new level

I very nice illustration for us visual people on steemit, thank you!

You can have a look here as a start, or there ^^

OMG so much incredible reading material here. I'll be coming back to this over the next few days Thanks for sharing! @journeyfreedom

I answered above. :)

Another solid curation effort. Congrats everyone!

My name is on the list, so happy. Thanks Steemstem 😉

And thanks to you for your nice contribution to the steemstem community! :)

@lemouth and to all steemstem curators we really appreciate your time and effort invested in appreciating our contents.Thanks for always giving us inspiration. You guys rock!! 😉

Congratulations everyone!

Congratulations to everyone who were rewarded. Happy to see my name in the list. 😍

And thanks for your contribution ^^

Advertising your post here is the best way for having us not reading it!

Congratulation everyone, well done @steemstem

Thanks a lot! :)

Congratulations to everyone on the list. And for the hand-picked choices; this is a nice selection by @ruth-girl and @lemouth

This post has received a 1.46 % upvote from @drotto thanks to: @physics.benjamin.

My vote is quite weak so hopefully this helped a bit more ;)

Every single help is always welcome. Plenty of weak votes gets to a stronger vote :)

Very good selection! Thanks!
I especially liked @erh. germany's article which I always follow!
Congratulations to the other winners, too.


Thank you so much @steemstem for the continous support and encouragement. I'll continue to strive to write better quality post!
Thank you to the whole steemstem management.
You all rock!

Thanks to you as well! :D

@steemstem don't curate my post anymore....
I know I put time and effort into them, or has the criteria for an upvote alterated without my knowledge.

Please, visit my blog @damzxyno.

Just asking us to visit your blog in large letters will yield the opposite effect. Do you know that? ;)

Didn't mean to communicate wrongly,
Only thought I would gain inevitable attention by doing so....
I'm sorry for any improper mode of communication Sir.

People trying to get our attention in the comments of our distilled usually... get us not visiting their blog at all ^^

Noted sir...
This definitely wont happen again sir.

Well, this is for you, you know ;)

Thank you for taking us into account. Happy to be there.

Wow congratulations everyone!

Congratulations to all!. Thanks @steemstem for all given support. Regards.

I'm surprised by the number of authors this week, I remember that when I started writing in STEM there were only about 50 or less authors.

This is fantastic :D

Yeah, it increases more and more. Even when we think it stabilizes, it actually does not ^^

It's crazy, but we're happy :P

Every time I see my posts here I always feel at loss for words, I am so overwhelmed by the amazing support from this community! I also want to congratulate everyone else who made this weeks Distilled!

So once again thank you to the amazing Curation team for supporting the Endangered Animals series and helping me spread the important plight of the worlds most endangered species. You are helping me live my dream of saving animals with education. Thank you :)
