SteemSTEM Distilled #5x13

in steemstem •  4 months ago

Welcome to the 65th issue of SteemSTEM Distilled, a bi-weekly curation effort by the members of the @steemstem team.

SteemSTEM aims to make Steem a better place for STEM, a task which we believe crucial for the long-term development of the blockchain. Our goals consist in invigorating and inspiring the minds of a community of STEM aficionados on Steem, targeting on the long-term the upgrade of SteemSTEM as a real platform for science communication. In the meantime, this goes through the support of quality, interesting and cutting-edge STEM content.

For more details, a recent update on the SteemSTEM project is available here. If you want to discuss with us, please do not hesitate to join the steemSTEM discord server.

Our team scours the platform for original and quality content.

In order to support the best STEM content on Steem, our team scours the blockchain and read more than a couple of thousands of STEM-related posts per week. We hence support about 200 of these posts, and present in this distilled our top 6 handpicked choices for the last Monday-Wednesday period.


Can Type 2 Diabetes be Reversed? I Bloody Hope So!

An interesting and promising health post by @deathbatter discusses diabetes and research data that might some day lead to a cure. For more info, you know where to look!

When People Thought Being Diagnosed With HIV Is A Crime, Not A Disease

Another "taboo" topic by @conficker is here, this time it's HIV. Read this great post discussing the virus, the stigma, the misconceptions and what effects does living with the HIV have on a patient's life and psychology.


A Deeper Look At Shallow Geothermal - Part 2: Horizontal Optimization

@gra has given us another amazing post this week! Here you can learn more about shallow geothermal, the technology involved in cooling buildings in the summer and heating them in winter. That's a well-written and extended post you'll love!

Understanding Mosquitoes - Their History With Us Humans, Why Are They So Attracted To Us?, Other Diseases Transmitted By Mosquitoes Other Than Malaria and so on ...

It seems there's a growing liking towards those tiny, flying bloodsuckers in the SteemSTEM waters. This time we got you an amazing post by @menoski that explains why mosquitoes are attracted by humans and what diseases they can be carrying. Don't miss out reading this!


The Amateur Mycologist - Parque Oncol - Entoloma necopinatum and/or/possibly neonecopinatum - The 'Unexpected' Entoloma.

@dber and his excellent fungi posts are here again to amaze us. Read Wednesday's pick to find out more about his adventures in Chile and a few more fungi species he came across there!

Debunk-Tuesday – Reiki-Master 9000

An imaginative post by @egotheist debunks another "alternative" form of therapy. This time he gets Reiki under his microscope and the results are fantastic! That's a post you'll definitely enjoy!

A few words about the nomination process

For some time, the editorial team behind this distilled series is made of a one-woman-team, @ruth-girl, and she chooses her favorite posts (potentially discussing with other curators and/or the management). Posts written by the SteemSTEM team are excluded from the nomination process.

Please do not be discouraged if you did not make it on this issue. We are picking up in total 14 posts a week out of more than 200. The chances are thus low ;) In the meantime, you may wish to check these guidelines for extra tips on how your writing could be more effective.
