Deploy a Python API on AWS

  • The very first idea of creating my own app and deploying it on the cloud so that everyone could use it is super exciting to me, and this is what inspired me to write this post.
  • If you’ve been using AWS service for a while, you would know that to deploy a service on the cloud with the usage of multiple different services and configurations is no easy task, but Zappa comes to the rescue, that with simple commands(trust me, it’s really just a few lines!), all the heavy lifting configurations would be done!
  • You can follow the steps here deploy-serverless-app (trust me, this one is really an illustrative guide through with all the images you need).
  • To avoid such undesired visits, we need to add extra limitations on our API usage (Usage Plan) and credentials (x-api-key) to restrict visits.

Right-wing media thrives on Facebook. Whether it rules is more complicated.

  • Because Facebook does not offer much data about activity on its platform, Roose turned to a Facebook-owned tool called CrowdTangle, which lets journalists and researchers see which public posts are getting the highest levels of engagement.
  • In late July, the head of Facebook’s News Feed, John Hegeman, chimed in, emphasizing that “these lists don’t represent what most people see” on Facebook, pointing to non-public data showing that the list of what’s most seen on Facebook tells a less partisan tale, with outlets like the Los Angeles Times and BuzzFeed capturing high amounts of attention.
  • Looking at the most-engaged public posts of all types of Facebook content — not just links but also photos, videos, and so on — reveals a snapshot of what’s popular on Facebook that’s somewhat different from what Roose is broadcasting, Silverman says.

US coronavirus case rates are ticking up after weeks of decline

  • But health experts have said they fear it might be too high to prevent big spikes this fall, as colder weather sends more people indoors, increasing the risk of spreading both Covid-19 and the flu.
  • More than 6.6 million Covid-19 infections have been officially reported in the US since the start of the pandemic, and at least 198,306 people have died, according to Johns Hopkins.
  • Like the guidance before August's change, Friday's new language stresses that anyone who has been in contact with an infected person should be tested, whether they are exhibiting symptoms or not.
  • In August, the CDC site had been changed to say that people without symptoms do not necessarily need to be tested, even if they've been in close contact with someone known to have the virus, unless the asymptomatic person is "a vulnerable individual," or if that person's health care provider or a public health official recommends the person take one.

How the F-Factor diet became the center of an Instagram influencer feud

  • That empire came under fire when another Instagram influencer, Emily Gellis Lande, started posting screenshots from anonymous users who said they’d had bad experiences on the diet.
  • In July, anonymous Instagram accounts started popping up with more claims from former F-Factor clients, which Gellis continued to post.
  • Gellis posted a response implying Zuckerbrot was gaslighting clients, as reported by The Cut. The feud highlights the limitations of weight loss influencers whose success is predicated on the myth that anyone can be thin.
  • The dangers of Instagram anonymity caught up with Gellis when she posted two accounts from women who said the F-Factor diet had made them miscarry.
  • The F-Factor Instagram account also posted a response refuting claims made on Gellis’ Instagram about the protein powders containing lead, which made people sick.

How social justice slideshows took over Instagram

  • The way Hu describes it, in spite of the massive interest toward social justice slideshows, Instagram’s algorithm “actively fights against it.” Still, while he’s only created four advocacy-adjacent graphics since May, those posts have received thousands more likes than his previous content, which was mostly uploads of his professional design work and personal life.
  • The fonts and colors of these guides aren’t necessarily similar, but there’s an inexplicable familiarity to these posts, making them approachable and extremely shareable when they first floated across my Instagram feeds in late May. Hu noticed that successful graphics tend to be heavily over-designed, featuring whimsical, colorful, and even “grotesque” typefaces and illustrations.
  • And while the brand only appears to be selling social justice-adjacent, Black Lives Matter apparel for donations to the movement, it’s a telling sign of the steady corporatization of progressive politics — adopted by everyone from independent labels like CHNGE to Nike to the NBA.

Rails Concerns: To Concern or Not to Concern

  • Since we have trashing logic outside our Song model, we might be tempted to put notifying in the Trashable concern.
  • Then, a couple of months down the road, a new requirement is set where the developer needs to change the way we present featured_authors for songs.
  • To make things worse, now the Trashable concern and the models depend on the Authorable.
  • A response tweet inside asks how are folks who work with this codebase supposed to interact with concerns like these.
  • As we’ve seen, concerns are nothing more than modules that provide some useful syntax sugar to extract and DRY up your code.
  • Behavior like handling file attachments and the trashing logic we showed in the examples might be good candidates to extract into modules (concerns).
  • Hopefully, you get to see the possible good and bad things when dealing with concerns and modules in general.

White House blocked USPS from sending face masks to all households - Business Insider

  • The White House scrapped a plan by the US Postal Service to send every American household a face mask in April, The Washington Post reported on Thursday, citing documents obtained through public-records requests.
  • The documents showed that in early April, after public-health experts began recommending face masks to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, some officials at the Department of Health and Human Services suggested that the Postal Service, an agency that delivers mail to the entire country, could be uniquely positioned to deliver packs of reusable masks to every American household.
  • A draft press release obtained by The Post showed that the Postal Service was preparing to send out 650 million masks, first targeting areas like Louisiana, Michigan, and New York, which at the time were experiencing particularly severe outbreaks of COVID-19.

University of Wisconsin-Madison grad student admits pretending to be a person of color

  • CV Vitolo-Haddad apologized last week in two posts on Medium and announced that they were leaving their position as the co-president of the university's Teaching Assistants' Association (TAA).
  • The apologies came after an anonymous post on Medium accused Vitolo-Haddad of misleading people about their racial and ethnic identity.
  • Vitolo-Haddad was offered a conditional tenure-track position at California State University, Fresno, and was scheduled to start teaching during the 2021 fall semester, a university spokeswoman told CNN.
  • John Lucas, the university's assistant vice chancellor of university communications, told CNN that Vitolo-Haddad is not currently employed as a teaching assistant and is a doctoral student in the university's journalism and communications school.
  • Krug earned her doctorate in 2012 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, according to her George Washington University staff page, which is no longer on the website.

Amazon’s business generated $1.6 billion in 2019 profit for the USPS, new report finds

  • According to documents obtained by watchdog group American Oversight, Amazon generated $1.6 billion in profit and $3.9 billion in revenue for the USPS in fiscal year 2019, with the postal service delivering 1.54 billion packages for the e-commerce giant.
  • The president said in August he was intentionally underfunding the USPS to make voting by mail more difficult, but then appeared to shift his position a few days later, tweeting “save the post office.” He also protested the $10 billion emergency coronavirus funding the USPS received in July, though he could have gotten something out of that deal: it was granted in exchange for information about the agency’s most valuable private-sector client contracts, potentially giving him ammo to show the USPS is not fiscally responsible or that Amazon was at least partly to blame for its financial woes.
