For those that do not know yet, stemng is a sub-community of steemSTEM, a community-driven project which seeks to promote well-written and informative Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics posts by Nigerians on Steemit. The project involves submitting quality STEM-related posts to the steemSTEM management for upvoting and resteeming where applicable.
As we usually do, we have sifted through the stemng tag and even though there were several good posts to choose from, below are the posts that stood out for week #36.
Kicking off the week was the post on contraceptive written by @teemike. The methods were written in a simple and unambiguous language.
Sunday: Biodegradibility of Diapers
There is the growing concern over the adverse effects of plastics and other non-biodegradable materials on the environment. The @oluwabori article covers the positive impact of the consumer goods (biodegradable diapers).
One may never know there is a connection between chemistry and politics. However, just in case you are curious to find out the correlation between these two seemingly different fields, you may want to check the post by @conas.
Tuesday: The Advent of automated molecular reconfiguration and likely remodification in the paradigm of drug discovery and development
Don't let the long headlines scare you from the blog post of @cyprianj. The post discusses the healthcare system in regards to the use of prescription pills. We can easily buy medicine from the neighbourhood pharmacy, but getting it manufactured requires extensive research and testing. For more details, kindly visit the blog.
In most traditional African society, there is this belief that pregnancy or childbirth concerning the age and problems that may arise is often a problem from the female folk. However, today, @olamseu examines the often unfamiliar territory of the effect of male's age in childbirth.
The @samest article shows us that the ordinary pencil can be more than just a writing material. One can make a simple circuit on paper using only the pencil's lead trace on paper as a conductor.
Childbirth occurs daily in every part of the world at the rate of about 15,000 births per hour to compensate for the 6000 plus mortality rate at the same period. It is an endeavour which often fills people with anxiety in the event it runs into a problem, @steep2308 looks at one of the things that can go wrong.
About the selection process
The post for each day was selected based on consensus between the stemng management, in persons of @greenrun and @gentleshaid. The @gentleshaid made the week's selections, while @greenrun presented it.
