In spirit of Curie's transparency, we wish to use this weekly section as an ongoing development blog on our project to communicate our progress on top of the many casual exchanges happening in channel #curie.
We have started on Curie's frontend with @xeroc and will be implemented on Streemian. It's still a work-in-progress but will be completed soon. There will be a comprehensive announcement when it's done. As the work on the front/backend progresses - we are making sure that the system will be made transparent as possible to benefit the open-source community in the long-term.
Over the last week, Project Curie curated a total of 549 posts at an average of 78 posts per day. A total of 390 unique authors were rewarded. The numbers are slightly higher this week due to noticeably higher user activity in the past two days.
SBD 8,802 was generated at an average of SBD 16 per post. The numbers are slightly higher this week, again due to curation activity and also a higher price of Steem at the beginning of the week.
The Top 20 Authors by payouts last week were -
We've increased this section to top 20 to better represent at least 5% of authors that was rewarded by @curie. There are only three repeats in this list. As for @curie graduates, we have sent a long list of names to Steem Guild recently. Keep up the awesome work!
We upvoted 196 posts submitted by curators in #curie, with 1,568 STEEM paid out / pending payouts to curators. These numbers are almost 40% down from our New Year edition of The Weekly Curie, due to tighter guidelines and limitations imposed by a limited budget.
This has caused the
middle-class of community curators to disintegrate as we have started to limit submissions per user, according to display of consistency in quality of curation. With that, please take note that the ladder will not be a great representation of quality curators, although they have from time-to-time shown quality curation, following a set of guidelines (that may be too much for some, which is why we're planning to automate guideline-checking as much as possible).
However, things will change up for the Curie community as we launch the frontend sometime soon!
@alcibiades is back again at top spot, snagging the seat away from the champion last week - @fubar-bdhr.
The runner-ups are:-
We will try to remove some limitations for consistent finders soon enough.
Note to finders: Finders not observing the submission guidelines will be disqualified
Curie is a community project run by several Steemit authors. Our mission is to help discover and reward new content creators who are posting all sorts of original content, and give them the exposure that they need. In partnership with @nextgencrypto, @berniesanders, @val, @silversteem, @clayop, @hendrikdegrote, @proskynneo and @kushed, Curie aims to provide rewards to these deserving authors whether they are writers, artists, chefs, photographers, videographers, and more.
In full transparency, you will be able to find a published list every day detailing all the posts that Curie has chosen by our curators. At the same time, our hope is that this list will provide more positive exposure to the selected authors. We invite curators to submit hidden gems at #curie on Steemit.chat.
We hope that you will consider following not only this @curie account, but also many of the authors whose work is featured here each day. Please consider adding your comments on these posts also! You can follow @curie's outgoing votes to see our curation in real time and donate your votes.
Today's list polls all posts curated between 23/01 12:00 UTC and 24/01 12:00 UTC. Curie voted on a total of 63 posts. SBD 1,768 has been generated for authors thus far, at an average of SBD 28 per post.

Where else do we get to be human? When we come together on the improv stage we have an opportunity to ‘Yes And’ ourselves and each other. We get to discover and share the movement of our emotions in a safe place. Out there, on the street, you better pull yourself together. You go walking around “Yes Anding” everyone out ther on Grand you gonna end up taken. You ride the bus and “Yes And’ your way home you gonna be carrying an arm full of cellphone batteries, blue tooth headphones, and a quarter ounce of shake. You go see a show at the FOX Theater across the street and have your emotions on full blast, they will boot you out before you have a chance to watch Steve Martin and Martin Short do a banjo tambourine toe step. You want to go to the Steak House or the Blues Club, or hell even walk inside the Church, you had better get a hold of yourself and act normal bro. That is the world we live in. We are expected to act like bots, at work, at home, and in transit in between. I’m not saying we should be able to go around screaming our heads off. That’s not humanity, that’s madness. Yet we are driven to madness when we are coerced to bottle it all up. Madness is watching TV for 4, 6, 12 hours a day and allowing the ‘programming’ to program our behaviour between one another. When we come together for art, music, dance, theater, and especially improv we have an opportunity to ‘Yes And’ rediscover our humanity. We have an opportunity to see each other, witness each other, appreciate each other. We have an opportunity to focus on each other’s positives and create something, out of nothing, and discover everything in between. Computers can not do this. Cute cuddly polar bears can not do this. Only you, a human being along side other human beings, can experience and comment on the human condition through live improvised comedy. Too much? Never enough.
Much like a human hand whose thumb assists the four fingers in grasping an object, so too does joy allow us to gently hold each fleeting emotion. Though we will play Happy, Sad, Angry, & Afraid, we can play them with Joy.
Thank You HÖWL. And thank YOU for Supporting Live Theater & #Improv Comedy
i Appreciate the Up Votes & Comments
All the Best, Jacob TS
Coffee is always in the liquid that enjoy a lot of people there are even those who have become addicted to coffee.
Many people are interested in coffee. and the type of coffee is very much, there is no natural coffee and coffee sachets which have been packed and in production for the buying and selling business. In this post I introduce the types of coffee sachets which nescafee hot coffee. For coffee would be very boiling water Sampi 100 C.
Because coffee has been packaged already mixed sweetener. therefore, if the water does not boil 100 C, then mixed sweeteners in coffee and coffee sachets do not feel unsteady.
