SteemSTEM Distilled #105

in steemstem •  11 months ago  (edited)

105 SteemSTEM distilled and a surprise. From now on, all posts voted with a strength larger or equal than 65% will be both resteemed from the @steemstem account and will be mentioned in the weekly distilled.

In the meantime, do not forget to say 'hi' either on the SteemSTEM discord server or on our Steem Chat channel. Both chats are now mirrored so that it becomes easier to discuss together.

Our top choices

Journal club - the anticipatory immune response of pain-sensing neurons in skin

We are happy to support the initiative of @scienceblocks who is leading a journal club series on SteemSTEM. He is planing to summarize a scientific article he read and liked at each episode. Today, the topic concerns the anticipatory immune response of the nervous system to some issue, even at some distance from it. Please have a look to learn more about it.

Thoughts – Key Players in The Field of Well-Being

@abigail-dantes shares today some thoughts about well being. She focuses on two situations in which the well-being of people is impacted by the society or events to introduce the topic before going back to the more rational side. Feel free to give it a read!

Can these articles be used for commercial purposes? Since these were checked thoroughly for any misinformation and errors, it will be very easy to make a website or a video series related to the topics provided in the STEM section.

I do not understand exactly what you have in mind for what you quote as "commercial purposes", but I guess you will need to contact the authors of the different posts, explain them what you have i mind with more details, and ask for their permission.

Wow! Quite a list. Thank you for including me among the 'best'. What a group. I read almost every one and do agree the handpicked standout and are memorable.
This must be so much work, but worth it--to us, anyway.
Thanks for all the work you do.

One needs to thank our curators for that. They made this list by reading and picking all posts from the STEM fields written on Steem.

Wow...I'm very overwhelmed being part of the authors to feature on the weekly distilled alongside other great authors. All the posts featured are great read, especially that of @abigail-dantes.

Thank you very much @lemouth and the entire @steemSTEM community, for the continuous encouragement and motivation.

A big thanks to all my readers too. I appreciate y'all.

It was a pleasure to read you! Are you still planning to write? It is a long time you didn't write anything.

Thanks for the kind response and checking on me, Prof!

Yes, I'll still write and it would be soon. I've been very busy in the past few weeks. I'm becoming free now.

You are a sweetheart! :*

Thanks dear. You are simply a great role model one can look up to. Pls, keep it up. Mwah.

It's wonderful to feature on the distilled alongside all those incredible authors! What a great idea to allocate a place here for the top articles :) Further, it is very flattering to have had my post handpicked together with that of @scienceblocks'. The journal club initiative is a smart one indeed :)

Thank you very much @lemouth and the entire @steemSTEM community, for continuously encouraging and motivating us!

I wish you all a relaxing weekend :D

It is always a pleasure for us (including me) to read what you wrote. Even if I read it with a kind of delay. As always, thank you for your never-ending contributions to the project!


That's very kind of you to say that. I just love your posts, the way you write and how easy you make it for everyone to get on board. In fact I just finished reading your post on neuroplasticity, and I have been in deep thoughts about it for last 10 mins. I am going to share that on my Facebook and then come back and comment again.
