SteemSTEM Distilled #77

in #steemstem2 years ago (edited)

Welcome to the 77th 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.

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.

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

Do Men and Women Experience Sex Differently?

After a week of instability our amazing curation team has dug into the abyss of posts and got you another wonderful compilation for the week. Our first pick is @agmoore and her fantastic piece on men and women and how they perceive "sexual messages" and "decode" them as harassing or not. An interesting post you will definitely enjoy!

VITAMIN C - fighting more than just the common cold

@zen-art and another lovely post follows next! Read about the almighty Vitamin C and the benefits it has to offer to you. No, it's not only helpful when you have a runny nose!

Wednesday - Friday

Perceptions of Jordan Peterson. Reflections after the lecture in Iceland

Psychology and @saunter for our mid-week selections and here we give you a piece on Jordan Peterson. A post inspired by a lecture of the famous professor, discussing the controversial academic and his work. Trust us, you will not get bored for a second!

Goldenhour Photography - Importance of the sunset

An imaginative and original post inspired by the beauty of the colors of the sunset is here by @lycos. Read on to find what amazing mechanisms related to light plants have evolved. You will be fascinated!

Saturday - Sunday

Myths Surrounding Exercises; Here What You Need To Know

Do you remember @n4zrizulkafli and the app he's been working on? This time he got a great post for us on certain exercise myths that people believe in. You'll be surprised with what you think you've known right all this time.

The problem of Stinkers deficit in Natchez Native Americam Indian Tribe

And we're saying goodbye with a post showing us the "marriage" of mathematics and other sciences. A very interesting piece of reading by @romualdd is here. It combines statistics and history using the Natchez native Americam indian tribe and their marriage habits as an example. You shouldn't miss it!

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 6 posts a week out of more than 150-200. 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.

See you all next MonTuesday for Distilled #78!


Congratulations to everyone! Remember to be careful with the stats, as they cover the difficult HF20 times where we didn't vote much.

Oh! I am SO pleased @saunter's post has been featured in this issue of the distilled.

I feel that the views of the readership, in general, were a bit clouded by their sentiment towards Jordan Peterson, and, hence, dismissed the most incredible discussion Saunter delivered about the polarization within psychology as a consequence of research methods.

Something which clearly didn't go unnoticed by @ruth-girl and @steemstem :D

Thank you for including my article! I've read two of the others in this issue so far and am very impressed to be included in this company. There's always a rich selection and stimulating reading in SteemSTEM Distilled.

Thanks for making great content!

Your post was too good to not be featured @agmoore! You deserve it! Keep it up dear! :)

Thank you! I'll try! :)

Congratulations to this weeks selections, who have continued making great content, through thick and thin, through HF20 difficulties, and low steem prices. They are the heroes we don't deserve.

Excellent curation this week. I have to give a shout out to @saunter for highlighting a great talk in a fascinating place. Oral presentations are not widely conveyed on the internet, but they're critical to scientific communication IRL so well done.

Thank you King! :D

Nice selections again by @ruth-girl. It keeps getting better and better.
Big congrats to all the featured authors and those that got voted.

Thumbs-up to the entire SteemSTEM crew

Thank you Sammy!! Those people have done amazing things despite the "discouragement" from the HF20 mess. We have a hell of amazing writers, don't we?

Yeah! Thanks a lot! :D And see you soon :P
