This week and the next one will be insane for @lemouth. However, no matter what there is always time for a
good beer distilled. So here is the 9th edition of the distilled of the best articles posted within the STEMsocial community. Feel free to read and comment the posts of all featured authors of the week! Note that if you use our app, your comments are eligible for a small upvote from STEMsocial!
Before moving on with the two best posts that have been selected (by @lemouth) from all the posts found by our curators last week, here are the most supported ones:
|@agmoore||Epidemics Past and Present: Polio and COVID-19|
|@girolamomarotta||ChAdOx1 nCoV-19: use of Adenovirus as a vector in the anti SARS-CoV-2 trial vaccine|Our top choices
Open source is crucial today. In an ideal world, any piece of software should be open source. In his last post, @medro-martin browses open source software and emphasise a few great related projects. Linux, Python and more are present!
With this last blog, @agmoore discusses some interesting parallels between the polio and the COVID-19 viruses. The story seems to repeat itself, to some level. Feel free to have a look top the post: both events are described from someone who lived/lives them. Such a testimony without middle-person is rare!
STEMSocial offers support to anyone using our app, stem.openhive.network. We recall that:
- Posting an article through the app automatically yields a 5% stronger upvote at curation time.
- Posting a reply to an article (or to another reply) from the app can sometimes yield some support.
- Setting @steemstem as a beneficiary to the post automatically yields a stronger upvote (up to 5%).
Last week, the STEMsocial curator team has supported 68 posts written by 46 authors. 19 of these posts have been posted through the app (and got a 5% stronger upvote). Among these 68 posts, we find:
- 27 small upvotes (less than 20%)
