SteemSTEM Distilled #84
Welcome to the 84th 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 several hundreds of STEM-related posts per week. We hence support about 100 of these posts, and present in this distilled our top 6 handpicked choices for the last week.
Monday - Wednesday
Let's open this fresh new week with a great lesson from @dexterdev! Learn how to create molecular dynamics simulations or as he more eloquently explains "how to set up a molecular dynamics system where molecular structures should extent in its periodic cells infinitely".
Did you train your brain enough above? Good! Let's move on to a fantastic post by @gra, aiming to train our bodies too (the Greeks knew it well "a healthy mind in a healthy body" they said). Read on to find out more about the benefits and drawbacks of backpacking in a post full of amazing autumn color shots!
Wednesday - Friday
@maticpecovnik (you know, the "fusion guy") gives an excellent answer to stemq and explains very well what stellarators are and what makes them "awesome"!
The Antifungal Efficacy of Salvia officinalis (sage), Origanum vulgare (oregano), and Citrus limon (lemon) essential oils [Experiment and Research Paper]
Next stop @alchemage's brilliant post! Here we learn the antimicrobial and antifungal properties of natural essential oils and how they can offer us a great and healthier alternative instead of synthetic components.
Saturday - Sunday
A post that will make you go bananas follows! @zen-art does some pretty amazing work here talking about monkeys' (and ot only) favorite snack! Don't miss reading this one!
This week will close with one of the many fantastic posts we've had from you, guys! @fancybrothers gives an excellent report on the science of superpowers! If you're into superheroes, then don't miss the chance to learn more scientific details about their "gifts"!
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.
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 November 18 to 25, we rewarded 75 different authors who have written a total of 113 different articles. The 45 authors who received votes from @steemstem, potentially with either @utopian-io, @curie or both, are:
@abdulmath, @acont, @alchemage, @alexbiojs, @amart29, @amavi, @anaestrada12, @ancolie, @answerswithjoe, @anzha, @bettervision, @chappertron, @davidrhodes124, @dexterdev, @elvigia, @erickyoussif, @fancybrothers, @fingersik, @funmiakinpelu, @ikchris, @insight-out, @iptrucs, @ivymalifred, @jfermin70, @joelagbo, @josedelacruz, @lauch3d, @lupafilotaxia, @magicmonk, @marjanko, @markgritter, @masterwu, @maticpecovnik, @mgarrillogonzale, @mixology, @n4zrizulkafli, @neurosurgery, @nonzerosum, @okunlolayk, @rerere, @rifkan, @samminator, @sardrt, @scienceblocks, @slgamerguy, @soy-venezuelien, @sunkanmi02, @svemirac, @talmid, @tarazkp, @tensor, @ulewis, @wilmer14molina, @zen-art
All curation rewards earned will be used to fund @steemstem project functioning and activities.
See you all next MonTuesday!
