Welcome to the 67th 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.
Monday - Wednesday
Our week opens with a very interesting post by @lemony-cricket. Do you want to learn more about encryption? Then this is a piece you should read!
@henrychidiebere has written a great post on smart cards. How many applications does this technology have in our lives? The answer is a lot and for more information you now know which post to read.
Wednesday - Friday
And for the physics lovers coming up next a particle physics post by @irelandscape that you will love!
Who doesn't love @abigail-dantes' psychology posts? This week she writes about our search for validation and approval from others. Why is it that we seek confirmation from our environment to define our "self value"? @abigail-dantes explains it all very well!
Saturday - Sunday
Some more technology for you is here with a great post by @sunkanmi02 discussing the two alternatives for you solar system installation. Which one is best? Read his post and find out.
And our week closes with an interesting health post by @herbayomi. The topic? Schistosomiasis, a disease easily spread through contaminated freshwater especially in tropical areas. If you want to learn more, you shouldn't miss this one!
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 8 to July 15, we rewarded 155 different authors who have written a total of 222 different articles. The 121 authors who received votes from @steemstem, @utopian-io and @curie all together that week are:
