Tough times, tough times, and so the distilled is late. However, better late than never, and here is our 14th distilled of the best articles posted within the STEMsocial community. We encourage our readers to take a look and comment on any of the best-selected articles of last week. As usual, if you use our app, your comments are eligible for a small upvote. However, as our developer @lemouth is trapped in a void for some more months to come, it may not be functional in the new Hardfork until he can return!
Before moving on with the three best posts that have been selected (by @jsalvage) from all the posts found by our curators last week, here are the most supported ones:
|@juecoree||Household energy and covid19 (an audit case study)|
|@gentleshaild||Phytochemical contents of African chewing gum|
|@cyprianj||Bio 101 origin of life concluding part|Our top choices
The chemosynthetic theory of the origin of life hypothesized that life arose from a chemical soup, also known as the primordial soup. The theory whose major proponent is Alexander Oparin hypothesized the primitive earth's atmosphere as being hot and dense with gases such as methane, water vapour, hydrogen, and ammonia due to high volcanic activities that are characteristic of the planet back then. More information is in the post!
An energy audit is a dynamic review of the energy use of a building to find clues to optimize utilization. It involves several steps of inspection, data analysis, and evaluation, but these steps vary depending on the audit strategy.
The plant commonly known as African chewing gum, locally known in northern Nigeria as 'Goron tula' and scientifically known as Azanza garckeana belongs to a family of angiosperm known as Malvaceae. It is widely distributed locally in Nigeria, specifically in Tula, Kaltungo Local Government Area of Gombe State, and in Michika in Adamawa State. ref. Beyond the shores of the country, Goron tula grows from Sudan down to South Africa and the local name given to the plant varies accordingly
