As always, @lemouth has looked for the two best posts found by our (English-speaking) curators last week. Before presenting them, here is the list of the most supported posts last week:

@mobbsFiguring out Social Media for SteemSTEM to Reach Out to the World
@mobbsLife is Easy, huh?
@svemirac      Astronomy News #04 - Space Telescopes & Images and successful tests on ISS

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

Our top choices


We are happy to feature our curator @sco this week, who authored an interesting article about mycotoxins. If you like tomato sauce and eat it from cans, please have a look. Things may be dirtier than expected. While this may or may not affect your life, it is always good to be informed on what could be present in the food we eat. In short, mouldy food could impact us and end, somehow, in our plate (no matter the UV treatments)..

Punishment – An Overview Through the Lens of Psychology

For several weeks in a row, we are proud to feature @abigail-dantes in this distilled. The psychology topic of the week concerns punishment. Do we have to punish people, or not? She provides hints to answers to this question in the post, from the point of view of the psychologist. Again, a nice debate in the comments! Feel free to participate
