SteemSTEM Distilled #33 — Steemit

SteemSTEM Distilled #33

in steemstem •  9 months ago

Welcome to the 33rd 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.


Pathological Aspect Of Extinction (Part 1 Of 4); Introduction to Conservation

Ever watch the "Jurassic Park" series and wonder ...How, why and what? Well @chloroform starts of an indepth look at the different factors that effect extinction from the different aspects, in a great series on the Pathological Aspect of Extinction.

Social Chameleons – Taking Communication to Another Level

As a criminal psychologist and polygraph examiner @dysfunctional is continually exposing us all to different behavioural patterns of human beings. In this post as the title so appropriately states "Taking Communication to Another level" we are given a detailed explanation into "Chameleon" like behaviour of humans in a social construct.


Health Vlog #3: Why Sit-Ups are a Terrible Exercise!

How many of us have spent hours on end trying to get those perfect 6 pack of abs, and knew that situps were the only way to get them....Well thankfully to @exercisinghealth we are now able to find out the truth behind doing situps and a proper way to get that perfect 6 pack of abs finally!

Want to Fall Where, (Space Station) Tiangong-1?

We hear of new satallites or new different space projects all the time being lauched into space, but what happens to all these different space debris once it has fulfilled its mission or its lifespan has been reached.@irza provides an excellent post focusing on the Tiangong 1 re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere.


Sex Differences: Check out the gonads on that one!

In an excellently well written and detailed post @alexander.alexis goes indepth into the understanding of the different sexes. He takes us step by step into showing us how genes determine our sex.

The Tales of Pirates - “Gentleman Pirate” Stede Bonnet

'ho ho and a bottle of rum!'..... I am sure quite a few of us have watched the Pirates of the Caribbean movie series and wondered if any of these stories were true or did pirates actually roamed the seas, well @arrrados has provided us with an amazingly accurate account of one these Pirates...

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 @zest.

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 :)

Good to see Distilled back and happy to see the great sex differentiation post by @alexander.alexis get featured. Congrats to all other authors as well.

These are some righteous selections by @zest.
I believe, one of the debts we owe this great community for their sacrifices is; passion-driven engagement.
More grace

I have a question
Could statistics be part of this too please ?


Which statistics exactly?


Maybe a tutorial


Ah ok, you meant writing a post about statistics. I thought you wanted me to provide more statistics about how we vote.

Of course, statistics is part of STEM :)

As always, good job ;)

However, I found bugs with every photo pulled either to left or right:

It happens on, which is a really cool interface and I use it on daily basis. I think you simply shouldn't use Markdown inside HTML tags, so instead of:

<div class="pull-right">


<div class="pull-right">
    <img src="link-to-photo">

Ahaha good catch. Since I don't use busy, I have never noticed this issue. It should be fixed by now :)

Tanks for pointing this out!


Busy is much better than it used to be, definitely worth checking out ;)


I still prefer steemit ;)

Good work by steemstem and congratulations to those selected.

Full steem ahead :)
