Welcome to the 50th 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.
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.
After Hawaii, Iceland is the next "stop" on @sooflauschig's posts. An interesting piece of writing that will teach you more about the geology of the area.
Alternative Energy Solution: Bionic Leaf Interacts With Bacteria To Convert Solar Energy Into Liquid Fuel (Research-based)
And from geology to technology. @eurogee has brought us a very interesting post on a new technology that promises to create liquid isopropanol fuel using a bionic leaf and an engineered bacterium as a catalyst.
In her new series @abigail-dantes goes deeper into the sphere of obscure worlds and tries to break down the mysteries of ghosts and out-of-body experiences. Don't miss the first episode and stay tuned for the next ones!
Let's go mineral tasting with @mountainwashere in this post. You will be surprised to learn what those geologists have to put in their mouths for the sake of their science.
An interesting physics post by @obamike is here. This one discusses the importance of studying the ionospheric Total Electron Content data. Check it out!
@conas has given us a very helpful post on the various learning styles there are out there. Once you figure out yours, the learning process will be so much easier as you will be able to develop much more effective learning strategies.
Little flying, blood-sucking vampires, AKA mosquitoes are the main topic of this post by @bitfairy. Read it to learn more about how and why scientists have been trying to get rid of them and what would happen if those insects disappeared for good.
An extended and well-written post on the deadly Ebola virus is here by @nonzerosum. Read it to learn more about this plague and the new vaccine that is being developed to use in the fight against it.
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.
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).
