Python Apps That Scale to Billions of Users

It's really interesting to think about how we go about building software at scale and one of the things it just under a how you feel about reading your book. I feel like you must have some opinions on this. But when i go to a website that is clearly not a small little companies. It's obviously a large company with money to put behind professional developers and stuff in you click on it and it takes four seconds for every page load. It's just like how is it possible that you're building the software with so much. This is the face of your business is sometimes they decide to fix it with front frameworks. So then you get like a quick splash of like a box with owi and then it says loading for four seconds which to me feels no better. So i don't know. I i feel like building scalable. Software is really important. It's still people are getting it quite wrong quite often. I'm in it's all it's all also. There's a lot of things to do when you do that.

How vaccine inequality is endangering the world
"With that anniversary one year ago today when the World Health Organization officially declared the covert 19 outbreak, a worldwide pandemic when a year on and 2.6 million people have died worldwide, and the economy is in tatters. There is also hope, because Kobe vaccination drives under way more than 100 countries with more than 300 million doses of ministered, but who gets vaccinated, for example, there around 80 million refugees, asylum seekers and displaced people worldwide. Will they be included in vaccination plans where they live? Filippo Grandi is the U. N High Commissioner for Refugees and his current in Uganda. When I spoke to him, he started by telling me what impact the pandemic and lockdowns have had on refugees. Where I think the impact is severe and will be even more severe is more on the economic side and in lockdowns, which prevail all over the world. We've seen an escalation off poverty if you wish in refugee and displaced community all over the world from Lebanon, Toe black in America, the Venezuelans toe Afghans in South Asia and so forth, So this is really the key challenge that we have to face now. We know that the key to getting out of the pandemic. His vaccination aren't refugees at the end of the list of people who are going to get vaccinated or too often, well, that was very much our concern, especially refugees. Refugees are not nationals off the country's they're in, and we were worried that because of that they would be marginalized. You know, there's been some good developments. I am in Uganda is speaking to you from Kampala and here, for example, today the vaccination begins. I was with the acting prime minister this morning He was going to be vaccinated and he was keen to tell me refugees will be included. There's no question about that. You can the host 1.5 million refugees. Almost the pandemic has the underlying the inequalities that disparities Throughout the world on one of those is that the richer Western countries of vaccinating at a much higher rate than poorer countries, and yet so many of the world's refugees, Aaron places Like where you are right now, you can do that slower roll out in places like Uganda is undoubtedly going to effect refugees, isn't it? You're absolutely right. George. Vaccination programs have to exist and to be rolled out to include refugees, and this is where really the enormous inequality of the international system has appeared. Very carries. The tent of March is the first day that you can to a nation of more than 40 Million people is receiving its first vaccine when in rich countries. This has been going on for several months. So this inequality is blatant. This needs to be corrected. We are active as an organization in those initiatives that aimed at securing a minimum amount of doses. For poor countries and our role there is to ensure that some of those does is go to the refugees as well. But frankly speaking, that effort is not enough to correct that huge imbalance which is really short sighted. It's not only wrong, it's shortsighted. It's a bit like refugees and nationals in the country if people in poor countries do not get vaccination. This is a global issue. It will backfire everywhere else so then more vaccines and needed and more needs to be done to deal with, as you say, the social impact of the pandemic on Refugees in particular. He's a difficult questions, and there aren't presumably easy solutions to them. But what are a couple of things that could should be done to make progress in this sense from the very beginning off the pandemic? I've reached out personally to the leadership of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. These institutions have led The establishment off economic rescue packages for countries impacted by Corbett and lockdowns, and my message to them has bean first of all to accelerate. The disbursement of those packages so that this country's are more protected, but also to ensure that vulnerable groups are included actually are considered as a factor to increase those packages. In other words, take Uganda again. Uganda is negotiating. If I understand with the I m F one such package and the message that I will pass through the eye, meth and other similar institutions is remembered. Uganda has what 40 45 million people. It's national population. It has almost 1.5 million refugees. These needs to be factored in, especially in countries like you can that that are very inclusive that include refugees in education programs in health programs that extend to them efforts to create livelihoods. This additional burden that these countries have needs to be considered when this economic packages are rolled out. This is not always the case. Look at Lebanon, for example, where one in four people is a refugee. This huge political tension in Lebanon over this refugee issue. I'm very worried that rescue packages being rolled out and Lebanon has many challenges may not include refugees, and this would be catastrophic for this huge, vulnerable population in that particular country, And this example is valid in other countries as well. So yes, More complex, I would say even then the vaccination inclusion.

The election results are still being being counted. The final is ultimately come out until tomorrow but he said many of his election observers from his party when able to actually access polling stations yesterday. And there's a big question about whether the actual pulling results from across the country if that's actually be sent the national telling center here in kampala. Election results were expected to come out tomorrow. What's the government saying about the process. I won't be electoral commission which runs the election has been saying that due process is going smoothly that there really aren't big problems I mean again. Election votes are still being counted.

The elect electoral commission directly. Is there internet. Because there's no internet or is it because the government shutdown good question. I haven't heard the government say specifically directly that they're the ones who shut shut it down but i mean uganda's a developed country. I've been hearing multiple times with few problems with my internet. So the question is who who else could could do that That's earlier this week. President did admit that the government had restricted social media. So it is a far cry to to suggest that the government was the one that shut down the internet But they haven't said that directly and yes. The internet is shut shut down. Shut down shut

He could scott himself as the president. Elect president-elect said he's winning by so he sent me this he's one is and has he won so some ugandan media station to putting preliminary results from the votes which come in so far. Just being. The incumbent president stephanie. A very healthy league. But it's very hard to verify likely what's going on because incident has been shut down across the countries night before the votes. Which makes it very difficult to know what's happening. And that's why we're speaking to you by phone today. But why has that shutdown happened. So one reason why is because the filled up to the fights probably wine had launched and supporters encouraging them to take pictures of the results forms meeting the vigil polling station upload them under app and so then the opposition were able to produce their own alternative results. The government is trying to clamp down on that Also the government is trying to clamp down on communications generally.

Uganda's Elections: Singer Bobi Wine Takes on President Yoweri Museveni
"On thursday millions of ugandans will go to the polls to vote for president at the helm is the incumbent yoweri museveni a former guerrilla fighter who ousted to dictators. He's now been in power for more than thirty years. Mid seventy s up against a number of candidates but the man the forefront is a singer and politician. Bobby wine the world. Africa correspondent halimi. Condie is in uganda's capital kampala. So the votes coming up in a couple of days lima. What is the pre-election atmosphere like this has been an election. That people have been watching. Because it's so symbolic of what seems to be happening in the region. You have a young population against kind of the old guard on one hand. President mu seventy and his campaign. Slogan has been secure. Your future and on the other side is Somebody half his age. Bobby wine and his slogan has been new. Uganda and not kind of seems to be the crux of what we're hearing people say but other than that there have been real logistical challenges here namely slow down at the internet and restrictions on social media in fact during a presidential address today president seven actually admitted that the government was blocking or restricting access to social media platforms like facebook that impacts ordinary people as well as journalists like myself. There are also concerns about violence. What are people worried about specifically violence from security forces as well as excessive force. We've seen dozen at least dozens of people at demonstrations or caught in the crosshairs of demonstrations who have been killed Especially a couple months back and this is also impacting manley. Opposition leaders like bobby wine as well as members of his party and other opposition parties in fact during an interview this morning with a local kenyan radio station bobby wine was interrupted and this is what he had to say. Some sorry. i'm even right now as we speak being raided by the msci to end the interview. Because i can't see between my security. God what would that is pretty dramatic. Yeah and this isn't the first time last week i was on a press. Call with bobby wine and the same thing happened. During the middle of the interview you see security officials essentially pulling him out of the vehicle and this has kind of characterize this entire campaign season here. And i spoke with one human rights lawyer here. His name is peter mccullough and he works with chapter for uganda which is an ngo and this is what he had to say about. This election from bisham. Our rights perspective has been at beat of high-handedness torture harassed. A number of cases have been reported where people have disappeared and asmatullah. Okay where does seem to be coming from. And he says that all signs point to the top as an president museveni so what has been the government's response to this violence and these allegations against president and seventy. It's been singing unapologetic. I mean the government has really mostly accused the opposition at being the these troublemakers of undermining the election of inciting people to go against the election of ignoring covert health regulations that we've seen that have essentially restricted in person. Campaigning today spoke with a government spokesperson. If one opponent oh and this is what he had to say about members of the opposition or pushing granted they think that simply by virtue of being a presidential candidate. Some rules don't apply to you. Traffic rules apply one hundred percent. So i won't drive recklessly. You'll be stopped by traffic police and a tragedy. What he's talking about there is if you're here in kampala. What you'll see or rather what will here first or these trucks zooming around blasting music and campaign slogans but many pointed out that these rules aren't being applied equally these rules that are extensively for kovac reasons.

Some people have actually left paula to go vote in their rural homes but also because they want to be away from kampala. This is a center of support for bobby wine. So if the election swings in the opposite direction we could see demonstrations or protests against the the outcome followed by heavy crackdown and today president.

"His power. He may have also been a murderous sociopath who simply killed them for fun. Looking at the evidence, it's likely he was both for years Western countries characterized amine as imbecile a- buffoon, the personification of the primitive African. But while a mean may have been outrageous, uneducated and possibly illiterate. He was far from stupid. Mean grew up devastatingly poor in a country with little to no opportunity for success, advancement or well. All he wanted was an opportunity to improve his circumstances. And when he got it, he was single, mindedly focused on leaving his life behind i. mean had no real. Except for his own advancement, wealth and power, he didn't care about his Muslim faith his why his children or his fellow citizens. Every decision he made was for his own benefit, and as his power increased, those selfish decisions grew to affect an entire country. People may have rejoiced in the streets after a mean was deposed, but Uganda has yet to recover from his reign of terror, graft and incompetence. Your Wairimu seventy a modern day. Strongman has led the country since nineteen eighty-six, and while Ugandans may no longer fear kidnapping and murder at the hands of their government. Unemployment, poverty and corruption are still rampant. Mean was among the first group of modern African dictators and helped establish a political system that is still present in regions across the continent. Instead of colonial powers pillaging the continent, it's Africans, themselves who perpetrate the system of oppression even today when we hear about a ruler in Africa, there's a decent chance that the leader will be compared to Edm the man who set the bar for murder and corruption, but if Idi Amin had seized power in Uganda, some other demagogue potentially taken his place. He would have had to to fill the power vacuum left by the colonial powers that abandoned the continent. This same scenario played out all across Africa in the same years wall Idi. Amin was ruling Uganda. And next week we'll look at one of his contemporaries. Francisco must see us in Goma who unleashed his own reign of terror on the people of Equatorial Guinea..

"We're talking about how you gotta use his drinkable in Kabul liquid. Morphine to treat serious pain. Where do we start? I wanted to see how this whole model works so I went along with the Ugandan nurse. Josephine Josephine's around Kampala. She's with a nonprofit called hospice Africa Josephine's delivering liquid morphine to patients. Who are too sick to come into the clinic? This is the first stop is at the House of an eighty one year old woman with advanced colorectal cancer. She's curled up in bed. Mosquito net hanging over her. If this audio check out in Kwan and Josephine checks in with the caregivers there to make sure the morphines helping with her pain no I ought to know when she she takes the morphine does depended use. Is She sleeping. She's she put to sea tonight. is she eating and then after looking at a card where doses are logged. She gives them a couple more bottles of morphine. It's filled with this green colored liquid. The tonight they would so we're talking like bottles of liquid morphine right. The size of an ordinary water bottle powdered morphine mixed with with water at a government funded facility and it's a two week supply for patients to drink. Okay drinkable liquid morphine. Not the type of painkiller. We'd widely prescribed here in the US for extreme pain right here in the US. We use morphine and painkillers related to it. But those tend to be amped up formulations that are many times as powerful roll or they've got fancy delivery systems patches time release capsules pumps give you the right dose with a push of a button like when you're in the hospital and you push that little red button to ask get for morphine or whatever exactly but advocates and Uganda say in almost all cases. They don't need that. Morphine is fine. And this low tech drinkable drinkable. Formula is very doable. Here's how Dr Anne Merriman who actually helped set up Uganda's liquid morphine system back in the late. Nineteen Ninety s describes the solution. You know they say it to make an a cup of coffee and you can make it at the kitchen and we did for seventeen years. Yeah in the early days they were using a kitchen. Sink observing serving basic protocols but still pretty simple make so if it's that easy to make it must keep the cost of liquid morphine down exactly. This treatment is cheap deep like two dollars and fifty cents for a one week supply for our cancer patient and anyone else who gets it in. Uganda absolutely no cost. Because because for some years now Uganda has been providing the liquid morphine for free. Oh Wow yeah. In a country where more than forty percent of the population lives on less than two dollars a day. That's huge so this all sounds good. But like we said opioids huge issue in the United States. My reaction immediately is like Oh this is addictive has has this led to any problems. Like that in Uganda. Yeah from a chemical standpoint morphine has potential for addiction So I put this question to an and she. He says this setup that they're using for giving out the drinkable morphine. Remember they give it to patients in a very controlled way isn't likely to foster misuse so dilute it. Sued is not going to give you I. They have taken over a lot to get any form of So that's her theory but whatever the reason after all these years here's does not seem to be producing an addiction. Problem in Uganda. So in Merriman was the driving force behind all this yeah. She was the founder of hospice Africa and she proposes. Was this idea of using this drinkable morphine. To treat pain in Uganda. And then what really made the difference was that it was embraced by some key Ugandan officials they ran with it. The head of surgical training at the Premier Medical School started training surgeons on prescribing liquid. Morphine and then. The country passed a law allowing nurses to prescribe the mixture. I'm sure that helped make a difference. Yeah it was huge because there are way more nurses than doctors there so now around eleven percent of patients who need liquid morphine in Uganda are getting it. But it's been stuck at that level and that's still pretty low right. So what's the challenge. Why is it stuck there? Liquid good morphine might be relatively inexpensive to make but funding is a major issue. Even where you have access to early could muffin. You need personnel. Who will be able to go to the home of the patient detrimental Lou? Rica has the African Palliative Care Association. A nonprofit that promotes this model. Manuel says Uganda spends very little of its national budget on healthcare. So there's not enough money being spent to train. And then deploy nurses to prescribe the liquid morphine and he says is also compared to health programs that save lives efforts to reduce patient's pain or just a much lower priority for African governments and also for international donors which which is maddening for Manuel because of how cheap pain management through liquid morphine is would donate a lot of money. It's not billions of dollars that we need. We need a little talk to make sure that all the patients need to access the already could muffin get them as often as as an integral part of the health system he's like this is an effective way to spend the money if we had it. Yeah and this lack of funding is also why other African countries have been slow to get liquid morphine to their patients patients. Even though they've shown a lot of interest in replicating Uganda's model and there's been a stream of visitors from more than a dozen African countries who've come to Uganda to learn how Uganda system works. And bring that information back in fact when I was in Kampala on the home visit with Josephine there was actually a doctor from Malawi. Who was shadowing her? So Malawi's is trying to copy Uganda's liquid morphine system. Malawi is one of several countries that have taken inspiration. They've now legalized the importation of liquid morphine to and Botswana Rwanda uh-huh and Swaziland have gone even further. They've taken up Uganda's idea of covering the cost for patients but again when it comes to the actual getting the morphine to patients. That's that's been progressing at a glacial pace so you've got this very promising model for helping a lot of countries interested in it and yet the vast majority of patients who need it are yet up to be helped by it right and I WanNa leave you with this moment that just crystallized it was so poignant you know I'm I'm watching this the head chemist of the government funded facility where Uganda's liquid morphine solution has made. His name is Christopher Tugay and he's scooping the morphine powder from I'm a bag onto a scale every time I way out the Purdah emerging that patient village who could be paying and you have here a power that can take away all that pain and like even after the bag is empty. He just keeps scraping. I don't want to leave even a small. In faith. There prevent nights. It would be helpful to every patient out day. He says until 'til Uganda starts producing enough. Every wasted. Graham means a patient who's going to be left and pain.

"Recently reporting on a story about how healthcare workers treat patients in extreme physical pain right. They've turned to a creative solution drug. That might surprise some people in the US yeah so in the US. Drugmakers have flooded the country with these powerful. We're foles sophisticated opioids that are at the center of the OPIOID epidemic. That's the US opioid crisis. Right but in Uganda and in fact in a lot of African countries for years they've been dealing with their own opioid crisis. which is the opposite issue patients? There don't have enough access to major painkillers. Why is is a combination of governments not spending on it not making it a priority which when it comes to an internationally controlled narcotic substance? There's a lot of red tape. So there's not many options beyond simple painkillers. Like ibuprofen seat him in offend a lot of tylenol. That's not usually enough for people in extreme pain like from cancer.

A wind and the tone may good city game and I just drifted We do morning from Lake. Wow extra slipped to morning okay. So liquid morphine. That's I mean that's an opioid that can be addictive right.

We hear about this simple solution that they've come up with drinkable liquid morphine. It's been life changing for patients in terrible pain and not just in Uganda.
