SteemSTEM Distilled #42

in steemstem •  5 months ago

Welcome to the 42nd 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.


Thursday


Exploring the Dark Side of Humanity: the Stanford Prison Experiment


With the movie "Boys of Abu Ghraib" as a reference point, @churchboy gives us a wonderful and well-written psychology post. The topic? The Stanford Prison Experiment and how the alibi of authority can justify violence (and so much more).


Eta Carinae - Our Local Superstar






You all know @terrylovejoy, our cool astrophotographer! This time he has brought us an excellent post on the binary system of Eta Carinae. Read on and you will surely love his amazing and original photos other than his writing!





Friday


Moving From AI (Artificial Intelligence) To IA (Intelligence Augmentation)


A very interesting post from @samminator, the technology lover! Read on to learn how the idea of Artificial Intelligence is developing into Intelligence Augmentation, because as he has beautifully written "technology is meant to assist humankind, not to replace humankind."




Digital Images | Image Acquisition



Another technology post for Friday, this time from @event-horizon. If you want to know more about how computers "perceive" images, process them and give them back to us to use at will, you need to read this post.



Saturday


NATURE INSPIRED INVENTIONS --- Photovoltaic cells; the reason for the non-reflecting eyes of the moth.



It seems like the second half of this week was too 'technological" as @whileponderin has written an amazing post on solar energy and more specifically photovoltaic cells and how the eyes of the moth have been the inspiration of a technology so widespread.




How To Find Scientific Sources For Free


A post that might help most of you. @lesshorrible has presented us with various and useful online sources of scientific information. Have a look at it, you may find sites you didn't know that can help you.




Sunday


The Arctic - A freezing-cold part of Earth and more on the survival of the inuit people




A post about the amazing world of the Arctic, the animals, the local people, the strange phenomena and optical illusions. You do want to read this wonderful piece by @logic42.


The unique Story behind the outstanding Enzyme CALB


And from the Arctic to the Antarctic with a cool post by @mountain.phil28 on the amazing CALB enzyme. Read it to find out why it is so cool.




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.

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 April 8 to April 15, we rewarded 112 different authors who have written a total of 154 different articles. The authors who received both a @steemstem and a @curie vote that week are:

·

Quality, exactly! It is nice to find that when scrolling up and down in a tag and those authors (and the ones that didn't make it to this post) have worked hard and earned a place in today's issue :)
Thank you @sogless!

·
·

My lady, you are doing a wonderful job. Yourself and some others in this community inspire me to constantly get better.

·
·
·

I feel so humbled right now ^_^

Excellent, great to see @lesshorrible's superhelpful post here. Well done to all other authors as well!

·

I think it will help lots of "lost" newbies. It deserves the extra promotion! ;)

Thank you guys/gals of steemstem, it's an honor to be on the featured page. Also a big congratulations to all the other authors for some great articles!

I still have no idea how you curate so many articles, that's a lot of reading and must take many, many hours of work. I just hope (my small) contribution on the honor team is helping spread some of the workload.

·

Thank you for leaving your mark on the platform! :)

The post pile is big (huge!) but team work makes everything possible! :D

Well done to @ruth-girl. You have been committed to the progress of this community. Well done once again. I congratulate all authors whose work appear here. I know you have done a great work before our dear Ruth can single your work out of many good post. Well done to all management of our great community, Justtryme90,lemouth, mobbs, suesa, anarchyhasnogod,.........and all the curators and everyone. Pardon me, if I appear naughty.....I just like this community of one family spread over the globe.

·

Well dones and bravos are well-deserved by everyone that puts effort into making this community project work!
Thank you @steepup for those encouraging words! :)

·
·

We must stand together to build the community together. 👍

·

Thanks for your nice message :)

Congratulations to the authors, more power @steemstem and nice selection @ruth-girl.

·

We keep getting stronger by the day! Thank you so much @noble-noah!

·
·

It's my pleasure!

What can I say? @ruth-girl is awesome! Hopefully I will be here to watch her become @ruth-woman! Thank you #steemSTEM. This community has become a major part of my life and I'm appreciative.

Congratulations to everyone who made the list.

Nice, you got a 24.0% @minnowbooster upgoat, thanks to @reggaemuffin
Want a boost? Minnowbooster's got your back!

·

Ahaha! You are teasing me my friend ;)

·
·

He likes doing that

·
·
·

However, I think @reggaemuffin needs some biology lesson: this is by far not a goat! Or maybe I am the one deserving the lesson? Who knows what will be the goats of tomorrow. I may be late (as usual).

It is late, my ideas are not clear anymore...

·
·
·
·

What are you talking about, that's clearly a goat :P

·
·
·
·
·

I cannot confirm it until it barks... ;)

STEM is really so interesting. I have alot of aspirations for engineering. Am an engineering student at the University level and I have been working on an engineering post to teach an implementation on both software and hardware. I have decided to follow up on @steemstem so when I am finally done with the implementation it would be aired and view here someday.

·

Should I say welcome aboard?
We are trying to build a strong community as you can see, where people support and care for each other.
See you around @kilatunzii! :)

Saludos y gracias por participar! :)

i want to grow my profile. how can it possible? suggest me

Try some fertilizer...

It does not work. However, e-fertilizers may work :)

Right! e-fertilizer and plenty of screenlight :P

·
·
·
·

Yeah! UV-screenlight :)

·

You can as well change the soil,if the soil is bad

·
·
·

You have to write good content. Spend more of your time writing articles. Try to connect with other people, comment and give suggestions to others, it's free promotion for your account. But remember that you are talking with people, and you might want good people to follow you so don't be a robot if you don't want robots to follow you. Cheers!
