STEMsocial Distilled #15

in #stemsocial10 months ago (edited)

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!

For those who do not know what STEMsocial is, please take a look here, or pass by Discord, the Openhive Chat, Twitter or Facebook.

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:

@juecoreeHousehold energy and covid19 (an audit case study)
@gentleshaildPhytochemical contents of African chewing gum
@cyprianjBio 101 origin of life concluding part

Interested in being part of that list? Please check these guidelines or ask for a mentor on Discord or on the Openhive Chat.

Our top choices

BIO 101: Origin of Life (concluding part)

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!

Household Energy and COVID-19 ( An energy audit case study)

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.

Phytochemical Contents of African Chewing Gum Plant

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

Glad to see this! I am doing my best to sort out my real life's trap... But this take time and will probably take even more time in the next few weeks/months... Happy COVID times...

NOOOO rush, of course =)

Even if I wanted to, I could not ;)

Just stay healthy

It's great to be able to see the stemsocial "distillate" back, as they are pioneers in the steem-hive blockchain :)

Let's see if we can keep it rolling a little while before the next break =P

Read the distillate again, it seems that the project is still alive, hopefully soon everything will be back to normal, they were long months of uncertainty, so I understand we will be like this for a while longer. Better times will come for the STEMsocial community.

It was never dead, it's just on pause as lemouth is, well, as his comment says above! I'm sure everyone knows this by now, though.

Distilled can continue either way, but we lack the statistical data. Now, we decided to just go on without the data for a while with our new publisher-in-training =)

I'd like to ask you to delete my post. It is impossible to delete it directly because I can't log in. Can you help me?

It's wonderful to see another edition of Distilled.

=) No doubt you'll keep appearing there too if we can keep it going!

Hi @mobbs,
I'll try to write and comment more. I appreciate the work that goes into this. Great for the community.

Why am I just seeing this? Good to see the distilled back. Hopefully, this will ginger more authors to resume writing.

I didn't think to advertise it =P my bad
