Welcome to the 66th issue of SteemSTEM Distilled, a 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.
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 8 handpicked choices for the last Thursday-Sunday period.
A great post by @pmdmunton teaches us some amazing facts about... chickens! After reading this, you'll certainly look at your fried wings with different eyes!
@starrichie here has given us a beautiful post on green tea and red wine. If you want to learn what's hiding in those popular drinks, then you know which post to read!
@supersoju gets an insect under her microscope and we follow her! This is indeed a cool post you would love to check out!
Demystifying the popular myth that individuals are dominated by either their right or left brain hemisphere
Have you heard of theories suggesting that one of our two hemispheres controls us? Well, @akiripromise has written an excellent post trying to debunk this one. Check it out!
A well-written post by @chloroform discusses the dangers of pork meat. If you are concerned about your health and what things go into your stomach, then you shouldn't miss reading this one!
An amazing history post is here by @highonthehog! Read on to learn more about the Apartheid and what District Six meant for it.
Let's close with some psychology, shall we? Do you remember @saunter? We have an amazing post on intelligence from him that you shouldn't miss!
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.
In the spirit of being transparent about our actions that are now supported by @utopian-io, @curie, our delegators, our trailers and our manual curator supporters, we release every week the list of authors who have caught the attention of the @steemstem curation team.
From July 1 to July 8, we rewarded 124 different authors who have written a total of 160 different articles (there was a Steem blockchain failure during that week). The 121 authors who received votes from @steemstem, @utopian-io and @curie all together that week are:
