The Social Rewind for February 28, 2017

Are you subscribed to multiple social media networks like we are? Do you find it difficult it to keep up with all of the updates from the people you follow? Do you feel like you're missing a lot of good information?

"The Social Rewind," is a weekly compilation of what we thought were the most interesting, funny, or informational social media posts of the previous week. Q Source follows a variety of really fascinating companies and individuals on Twitter, Facebook & Google+ and we want to share the best of what they have to say.

Leading off this week’s column: We all have some kind of stress, but Workrite Ergonomics’ post looks at how the type of stress determines whether you binge eat or lose your appetite.

JBC Soldering Tools’ post examines how NASA’s new electronics have met the challenge of surviving Venus’ extreme high temperatures for hundreds of hours in a row.

Read the National Nuclear Security Administration’s post to learn about how Sandia National Labs are cracking the science of brittle materials and how they behave inside devices.

In more NASA news, Tektronix shared this post about perhaps the biggest story of last week, the discovery of seven Earth-sized planets (Trappist-1 group) just 40 light years away.

This 3D Printing Industry post offers an interesting look at how 3D-printing company, Organovo, has printed the base structure of a human kidney for use in drug testing.

And we close out this week’s column with a post featuring one of our popular Guest Blogs: “What You Need to Know When Selecting ESD Flooring.”

There you have it; another quick look at a few of last week's most interesting social media posts. We enjoy bringing you this weekly column and hope you liked reading the Social Rewind. We'd love it if you shared your interesting posts with us and if you would share this column with your friends and colleagues.
