Making Medical Deliveries by Drone is Solvable
"Explain to me how it works in other words. There's a there's a nurse who sees that. She needs a particular blood product in rural tanzania. Does she pick up a phone and call. Someone is the How does the system work. And how is it that the drones are ready to go and are they. Are they in some kind of medical base to start with. What does the system look like. Although there's a lot of complicated technology behind the service that we provide the experience of this service that solve is extremely simple which is essentially a push a button on a phone. Get the medical product that you need to save a patient's life delivered to your gps coordinates. There's no training really required for nurses or doctors health workers. They can place orders in a number of different ways other van online form or by calling the phone number or also by using what's up what's up actually winds up being incredibly reliable kind of infrastructure In in a lot of these countries and so any nurse or doctor health worker complacent order all of the complexity of you know autonomous aircraft and like getting regulatory approval and knowing how to do safety and maintenance et cetera is kind of handled in the background. They'll get a text message. Saying thanks for letting us know order has been dispatched. It is twenty four minutes away and then much like using ridesharing. they'll get a tax when it saying. Hey the products one minute away. Please step outside. it's gonna be delivered in turmoil. Box and the drones. Really move fast enough to make this work. Yeah so the juicy simple technologies blind builds distribution centers and the aircraft themselves we employ teams of engineers operators at each distribution center on each distribution center can serve around twenty thousand square kilometers or something. Like eight thousand square miles Which is typically between two ten million people so for example we cover the whole country. Wanda to distribution centers cover the country of ghana with about eight. That's where we store. Inventory of medical products and then each distribution center will serve around two hundred to four hundred primary care facilities in hospitals and each of those facilities is getting a delivery often several times a day sometimes several times a week depending on the size of the facility would essentially teleportation. It means that now it's possible to teleport products from central place out to all these different places where patients may need something. The benefit of having teleportation like service for national health care systems is that they can dramatically improve access particularly for renewable populations. They can reduce waste. Because you're sending less stuff out the last mile and before it's actually needed by patient and finally you can actually increase the diversity of the products that are available at prior carefully so it makes it possible to treat patients closer where they live
Yaa Gyasi Discusses Her Latest Book, Transcendent Kingdom
"Was born in ghana amazed in huntsville alabama process novel. Going was a sunday times bestseller. The national book critics circle award for best first novel and was shortlisted for the pen. Robert w bingham prize for fiction. Twenty seventeen she was selected as one of granta's best young american novelists and in two thousand nineteen the bbc's elected her debut is one of the hundred novels that shape. Our world and latest novel is transcendent kingdom. And that's what we're going to talk about today. Y'all welcome to little atoms. Thank you thanks for having me. Tell me festival how you would describe this novel. So transcendent kingdom is about a woman named gifty who is completing a phd At stanford and neuroscience and she studies phenomenon called neural circuitry of reward seeking behavior which for lay people just means that she said he's things like addiction and depression and it's at a time in her life when her own mother who is quite depressed has come to stay with her so she finds herself taking care of her mother while also doing this research while also reflecting on her childhood particularly the circumstances that led up to her beloved older brothers passing from an opioid overdose and sets a book about Family about mother daughter relationships about immigration about religion and about science knows your debut. Homegoing was a a historical epic a sprawling multigenerational story. This one. obviously as you've just described it covers some big issues big ideas in it but it's focused down on a one single family and indeed a family. That's getting smaller not getting larger year. It never it didn't really feel like a conscious choice and from the beginning of transcendent kingdom. It just seemed like a more intimate story like a smaller canvas. In that way. I wanted to focus on the way that trauma works in a family Which is a theme homegoing as well But in this case it was a much smaller and lay. It just felt natural. I think so much of transcendent. Them is about the ways that isolation has affected this one woman gifted life and in order to kind of capture that isolation loneliness a needed the i needed the smaller scale Gifted just isn't a character. Who has this kind of abundant family life. Her family moves to the states before she's born and once they get here they're kind of cut off from the larger extended family ongoing obviously had characters who were also cut off from family. But i feel like the point of that book was to kind of showed this broader family to show the family tree in its fullness to see the way that these cutoffs impact the individual Transcendent kingdom were just starting with the single branch and that set so gifty as you said. She's a nervous scientist. He's on on a day carrying out a particular experiments and this is a real thing. Tell us what it is. She's doing and where where this came for. You used it in the book share and so years conducting this experiment. While i think i call it in the book like a behavioral testing chamber Basically she puts mice into this chamber that she's created and she trains the mice to press a lever for a word in this case. It's like a chocolate milk drink when they pressed the lever the milk floods into the straw. They're all excited. And then after some time she changes conditions so sometimes when they press the lever they get the drink and other times when they pressed the lever. They get a mild foot shock instead. And there's no pattern to it. So the mice never figure out when or why beat shocks happening And what she discovers is that some of the mice stop pressing leper but others. Don't stop those mice. The who are effectively addicted to drink are the ones that she uses to study the neural pathways that are involved in addiction. in a a came to this Research via my own best friend. Her name is tina ken. She is a a neuroscientist herself. And when i started writing this book we were both living in california as she was finishing up her. Phd at stanford. I should mention. She's a friend from childhood so just kind of random that she ended up at stanford which is my my own alma mater But at any rate she was finishing her. Phd bear and around that time she had a major paper published that i wanted to read I thought that i understood what she did. But while i tried and failed to read the paper. I realized that i had no idea what she did And so. I just kind of asked if she would allow me to shadow her and her lab at that point. I didn't really know that. I was writing a book just kind of wanted to get a better understanding of research And thankfully and graciously she said yes. And so i spent the day with her and The day i went she was performing this surgery on her mice. That detail in the opening pages transcendent kingdom. And i just found it. So fascinating. Counter research fascinating. The whole process was unlike anything. Obviously that i ever spend my day thinking about. And i found that those places where your own curiosity is sparks places that feel incredibly different but also for tile are the best places to lean into for for creative worth so it felt natural to want to know more. It felt natural to to try to think about it to fiction so

CDL Talk with Danny Martin CEO of Esposure
"I feel like we haven't talked about cod at all. Maybe apart from week one we've touched on it but here we are. it's it's major stage one. We're already a fifth of the way through. Yeah it's crazy is is just gone by so fast in it. At least it's kind of for the most part always ghana's expected you know there's not very many surprises in the league right now so if you're just tuning in and playing some ketchup. The standings are kind of what we thought they would be at the moment. Ed my guests is tim. They stay this way. Most of the year you know like it. We know who the best teams are. A lot of. These teams have carried over from last year. And we're seeing them shine again this year. A few disappointments sprinkled in though. I think it's safe to say especially from our preseason kind of chat right our preseason predictions anyways florida one in four after defeating phase in week. One a little shocking like i. You know maybe it's just more of a hangover from last year that i think it's shocking because the team is at the same team as it was last year So quite even if it was the same team they over performed in my eyes last year. Yeah we would probably weren't going to get those same results with that same squad now with the new squad you know. They're going to probably be fine chances. Are they move up into the top eight and get a chance to play with the big boys at the end of the day but Yeah i mean. I think even toronto electronic try probably a little higher on going into the year thinking that they they won the last group stage or whatever. It was whatever it was called last year for. Cdl you know. They won the last group stage heading into champs and thought they would. You would see them. Take that next jump. We really haven't seen that unfortunately from them but again so so much time left. You know they did win today so they are at least moving onto round two of losers here and Staying alive so maybe they're so little hope form in this tournament. But i you know they would be a little bit of a disappointment for me up until now
"Get started with. I think this person or this story broke during the summer. it's kinda hard to tell now with the pandemic. what time is like but one other prominent ones that i remember seeing that wino- was flooding. Our timeline was the story of jessica. Craig aka or formerly known as jess la. Barletta cringe already awesome early known formerly known best. I'm about that. Let's get started. Let's talk about her. Yes so this woman has allegedly and apparently apparently been taking on different like black and afro sport identities throughout her life. She's an a professor or was a professor and academic where george washington university and university teaching. You know black studies are afrikaner studies and publishing books but at some point she were shifting from being in a north african to being african american and then being afro latin next sand after boaty gua was i think the final landing place for her her official forum her final warm so jessica. Krog just aka justifiable maleta hers combination of black fishing and being a fake tina at the same time and She got called out basically rightfully so rightfully so by a group of professors who are after latina's who had issues with her they were witness to or on the receiving end of like aggression from her and like prejudice and bad behavior while she was masquerading as after let nine different contexts. Apparently being super like belligerent towards black women in my on cool and really I think overcompensating and so trying to be an ex sorted extreme caricature of like this south bronx like her. Allegedly her mother was like a drug addicts prostitutes like this narrative that should created about herself so black women in the academy you know began talking about these different experiences and came forward and said This is not right. Yeah she was definitely performing like whoa kness being extreme radical like it was very performative. She was a published academic author and she also received a ton of accolades rice. She received she was a finalist. For the twenty twenty frederick douglass prize book prize presented by yale's gilder lehrman center the study of slavery resistance and abolition. She also was nominated or a finalist for the twenty thousand nine. Harriet tubman book prize and just received a ton of accolades has really been propelled or was propelled forward and questionably hired because of not solely for her identity. But because of the work she was doing and also the way. She positioned herself as offer latino or body gua and it's very cringe to think about all of the opportunities she stole from actual author. Latinas boras caribbean women. That are doing if not the same work or better work you know. And so it's that was probably one of the first ones that we saw. And then i think it kind of just opened up the floodgates for a lot of others than i don't know about you ma. But in my chicano studies department at uc santa barbara. There were a couple of fake denies that i will not name. They were not. They weren't anyone that i took like. I didn't take any classes with them but they were around. People talked about them. People knew like this person is very white claims this this cheek. Ghana mohican identity. You know is wide. Skin blue is performing she gun. You know some kind of ghana identity wearing that. I had because with the free that carlo ecstatic the whole thing right and it's like you like i they weren't. They were my peers. I was a student right. But i have friends that were graduate students. And they would tell me about these. Things happen. And in their cohort or in their in their seminars. And so you know. I think if if you've been in academia right. I haven't been to grad school. But i was an undergrad but i've i've definitely seen the fake tina's around so they definitely exists and i think this one opened the floodgates for a ton of
African countries take delivery of latest COVAX vaccine shipment
"Health workers in Ivory Coast will be the first to receive doses of the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine as part of the International Kovacs scheme targeting some of the world's poorest countries. Neighboring Ghana is due to start his Kovacs vaccination program on Tuesday. Namie grimly reports Cave axes the biggest vaccine procurement plan in human history. It's struggled in the international scramble for vaccines and his face criticism for being too slow to start its rollout. Some countries have looked elsewhere in the interim to boost supplies through bilateral deals. The World Health Organization described the rollout as an important first step towards achieving vaccine equity. But it added it was still only the beginning.
How Effective Is The COVAX Scheme?
"The vaccination program in britain is by accounts going extremely well. The country's ordered four hundred and fifty seven million doses of the job or enough to dose the population. Three point six times over. So what happens to the surplus until the world is protected against the virus there is little hope of eradicating karuna. Well this is where the kovacs scheme comes in led by the world health organization it also involves the global vaccine alliance gavi and the coalition for epidemic preparedness innovations and hopes to deliver more than two billion doses. Two people one hundred ninety countries in less than a year. China and russia are also racing to provide inoculations but is this altruism or a soft power push men will martin is medical innovation and policy advisor at msf's access campaign and joins me on the line. Now man will thanks for coming on. We're seeing this program begins to roll out. Globally garner has become the first to receive vaccinations through kovacs. But how effective is the scheme proving so far. Good morning So so far. It is delivering doses as you save the i also have been delivered to ghana however it is only delivering thus far vaccines of two different manufacturers. One of pfizer and one of his of astrazeneca and so far the numbers are quite limited. It has not yet secured enough doses in binding agreements to come through on. Its promise to deliver two billion doses of kobe. Vaccine's towards partners people are countries that are participating in colfax and also. Another big problem is that it's been incredibly transparent about the way that it signs deals. We don't know the prices that have been paid for these vaccines and we also don't know what what kind of concessions these agreements have come between. Gabby which is negotiating partner. Go backs and pharmaceutical industry. Who's at fault. Here is rich. Western countries hoarding or the venue vaccine manufacturers themselves. I think it's a bit of both so obviously the country's securing large volumes of doses to vaccinate as you've said multiple times their population is a big part of the problem but the other problem is also that pharmaceutical companies have been willing to sign. These deals when could imagine a different scenario where pharmaceutical companies prioritized deals with the kovacs acidity over signing bilateral deals with countries precisely because it's a pandemic and because global solidarity the only way we're going to get out of this. I mean britain. You have pledged to give their surplus supplies with that plug the hole so far what i have seen has have only been commitments to donate some doses once. They've reached a certain threshold. I think the you is aiming to back. Say seventy percent of its population by summer britain. Somewhere close to seventy five percent. And i mean let's just be clear what that means that means that in these countries low risk young individuals will be back soon aged for many developing countries can even max innate just their healthcare workers in their elderly the truly. They're at risk. The other problem that we're seeing is and is that a vaccine in particular the oxford astrazeneca vaccines that these countries have bought are now sitting around not being used. Because people fear that they're not as effective as they should be so with these stockpiles. Just sitting around. I really fear that they may actually go out of date before there used and that would really be a shame when there's so much need in the developing

That's one of my favorite non optional things about myself. It's just hard to deal. With other people's feelings about me being black. When it gets too, annoying Too. Heavy. Like lately. I like to dream. Of Africa. The most cliche dream you can have as a black person escaping to the motherland. Because out there, there are whole country an entire continent. Full of people that looked like me. Where so many people were born my color. Nobody has any feelings about The. Only thing that's hard about the Spanish though is that I have so little to go on. I never been to the continent but I was taught wasn't true and what I see most often the beautiful savannah's the crowded markets tribal celebrations. Gorgeous. But it doesn't say much about what it's like day to day. I need a little snapshots of life and Africa's stories that are small enough ability. And storytellers know what they're talking about. Two of the very best for Ryan Cooper. And Chat with Bozeman. Painted the African Kingdom of my American dreams with people that felt like cousin struggles and triumphs I know so well, Warrior women I wanted to be. And Beyond the his throne May he rest in? Come. I read everything about making Black Panther when it came out and I learned how they relied on African storytellers to build their fantasy of Kanda. So I followed in their footsteps. In parts of West Africa, these storytellers called Gross. They put on these live performances where everyone will gather around outside and the grill the storyteller will stand in the middle of a circle. And they'll tell stories that path along values and traditions. The people understand the context that they've been born into. Their world builders. PUT US FLASHING This summer. I don't eat drink red wine I'm like I don't WanNa get grunk com. Yes when they get, he got knows. I went out and I found my own grill y'all okay. So we weren't in Africa. We were in Maryland in her den. And there was no crowd just a breathless me hanging on every word but in her husband watching TV in the other room still she gave me the stories I replay whenever I need to escape to the continent. My Name. Is Fiona. So the first trip that comes mayes the trip that. I took back to Ghana and Brandon with me when he was thirteen, my son who's twenty one now. And he never been to Africa I had not returned to Ghana since I was fifteen. WHOA.

In the city and They were very accommodating waited on his literally hand and forms a little strange because he had like cokes and maids, and all I'm like, no I can do. My own dishes. But it was the whole family experience making the connections just having people come to the house saying, Oh, I used to babysit you. Remember your parents and then we rented this big SUV gotta drive when into the townships other little villages. Wow and it was just fantastic eating just going to the beach every day together fish that people are just called the cleaning for you want.

Repeat stories to the young ones the young ones repeat it to other kids drove. We drove from. Accra. Kumasi to tack Righty so I'll explain how that works here. Is, the city again is the capital. So that's where my brother and I went to boarding school for my two sisters were born. Blind. and. That's you know there's a seaport there. That's why my uncle's house is is very modern. Cry Has a mole hasn't McDonald's has a place called Frankie's pizzas. Wonder who has All the rich exc patriots that have come back for me living in America England Switzerland.

A bunch of new amazing episodes were exploring big ideas about reinvention making amends and the psychological effects of climate change our first show drops March thirteenth. Please join me. This is one A. Returning now to our conversation with Jacqueline Woodson and her year of return experiences Jacqueline you write about how you experienced a kind of double consciousness. While they're belonging at at the same time not belonging and I think you started to allude to this a little bit a minute or two ago. What does that feel like to you is is that feeling? That that you feel can be reconciled. Yes I think it is. I think it is feeling I have here in this country right. I am of this place you know I. I'm from this place but I really I'm in this place but my I of this place I don't know I'm very American in so many ways and in so many ways. Not You know the same with New York. I grew up in the south until I was seven. And so those imprinting years. I'm very southern so I feel kind of outside in New York all the time and so getting to Ghana and seeing everyone who is my complexion Or darker or a slightly lighter Walking like ideal you know our language the way we speak is different but the openness is the same feeling very southern to me And then it not being my place. Right it. It's kind of For me in the end it did feel like yes. This this is this is how I will always walk the world and yeah in more than one place. Talk a little bit more about that. That two feet in two places or feet in multiple places feeling because it's fascinating you know it's a it's a it's it's at once Kind of A. It's a gift right when you look at it. Positively if I didn't have feet in so many world I wouldn't have been able to write thirty two books. I mean you know it's it's kind of it. It's what bills empathy is how we begin to understand And at the same time I do wonder what it would be like to exist solely in one place in one body as one being and that's never been the case for me So so going to Africa. I didn't go to Ghana. I didn't feel like I was going to be completely outside of simply by the color of my skin I knew that some part of me was going to have a belonging there But I didn't know that I would at the same time feel This outsider ness and where the outsider would play out. It played out You know of course in economics. It played out in language. I feel like I can't I played out. I moved differently than a lot of African women even though my daughter moves like the African women so that was all very interesting to me. Will you said that there isn't enough space in the New York? Times travel section to to capture the enormity of this experience. I hope we've gotten closer in this time we've spent together On the air. But if you could go down a road that you haven't explored yet in writing about your trip to Ghana or your children's experience or your experience with your partner I don't know of. What do you think that would be I think I would. I would want to go down the road of my children who identify as black and biracial right. You know. They always say we're black and Biracial to to make sure both of those parts of themselves are are acknowledged. And what does it mean to be black and Biracial in Ghana What it mean to be completely immersed in an African culture for say five years ten years. What would that look like for them? I think there are so many roads and I also think I want to hear other voices I wanNA. There's so much room to write about this to write about our experiences. As African Americans Caribbean Americans and as Africans So so I have the roads that I would like to explore but I also am always so interested in the voices of other writers telling these stories. We've talked on this show before about how American journalistic views of Africa can be so very narrow you mentioned before the idea that Africa's one thing of course it isn't. This sounds like an opportunity to broaden that perspective make it even more granular than before to get more voices talking about the personal experiences visiting Africa exactly. Well we talked a little bit earlier about what you really wanted to get out of. This trip was some truth. I I suppose that's what writers are always looking for whether they're fiction or nonfiction writers. At least I hope so. I think the truth ultimately is what you're looking for do you. Do you think you got it. I think I got some of the truth. I think there are many of them and I think each time I go back. I'll get some more but for me. I feel like the truth that I got was that I am of that place to and And that matters that that I can go there. And and even with the sense of belonging I felt to also feel that sense of belonging and next time to go and explore what that truth means and how that truth manifest with more time there with knowing more people with doing more stuff So yeah you're it's you know I think as writers we're constantly searching for the truth that matter to us and by extension matter to a greater good in a bigger world and I'm I'm at the beginning of him and I think sometimes that that sense of belonging that you get a little bit of a sense of your first time you go to a place that can give way to a sense of longing to go back and be part of it and maybe that's in your future to Jacqueline Woodson author of Brown girl dreaming and read at the Bone Jacqueline.

Suddenly the room goes dark. The only light comes from around the edges the door. The guide has unexpectedly shut it. The tourists mostly africans look at each other nervously standing right in the middle the room absent hagans is are huge. He's one of the few americans here a grad student at the university of north carolina. It doesn't last a minute before the guide opens the door. He dramatically tells us on condemned cell. He says this is where the captive africans who wouldn't stop resisting assisting were kept as punishment. We shuffled to the next stop. In the hour long. Tour built a castle i fall into step with amps and hagan looked a little freaked out to coach absence talking about when he came here as a kid with his dad james hagan and his dad's here again onto james hagan is an american a retired high school social studies teacher from maryland who grew up here.

American woman descended from people who were enslaved singled me out. I don't remember who is other group as i remember him saying you know this is how you end up with individuals who looked like you said okay. A little later. James hagan presents the guide with another question. There's the slaves left here within chains. The guide says they were only put in chains when they were taken out of their cells and then they were led through a door door that he shows us. It has a plaque above it says door of no return and it's intentionally narrow so captive africans had to walk out one by one from near darkness to sudden blinding sunlight. Am sin examines the door and shudders think about all the work in mentally.
