My short bio: I am Dr James Wootton, a researcher at the University of Basel. I work on the development of quantum computers.

Though useful applications of quantum computers are still a few years away, there are already devices that are publicly available for anyone to play with. So I try to help people get started with quantum programming by writing tutorial articles, coming up with simple examples of quantum programs (like simple games or a superposition of emoticons) and open sourcing the code behind my research papers.

Most recently, Ive been collaborating with IBM Research on a project called Hello Quantum. At the heart of this is a simple and casual puzzle game based on quantum programming.

Edit: I'll have to call it a day now. Thanks for all your questions.

If you didn't get a question answered, perhaps it might have been answered in one of my previous AMAs.

I am a male nurse (RN) at a large city jail with a daily population of around 1,000 inmates in one of the most violent cities in the US. I am the "charge" nurse on my shift, and have been working in the jail for over 9 years now. I have seen stabbings, hangings (and other crazy suicide attempts) sent many people to the "butt naked room", and a lot of other crazy stuff. Ask me anything!

Hey reddit, we’re Benjamin Spall and Michael Xander, the authors of My Morning Routine: How Successful People Start Every Day Inspired. In the book we interview sixty-four of today’s most successful people, including three-time Olympic gold medalist Rebecca Soni, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, and General Stanley McChrystal, and offer advice on creating a routine of your own.

The book aside, we’ve been interviewing people about their morning routines for over five years over at https://mymorningroutine.com, and in this time we’ve seen just about everything there is to see about what to do (and what not to do) in the morning. We love reddit, so please ask us literally anything about the book, the website, or anything related to morning routines in general. To read the introduction and the first interview in the book, sign up here and you can download a PDF right away.

I'd love to introduce myself to you as an award-winning composer, specializing in film and TV, by sharing one of my latest film scores. Please take a moment to check out a recent sample clip here: https://youtu.be/oJ3DDlNptTs and comment back to let me know what you think. I currently have a collection of original, fully customizable, music ready to place in a variety of films of basically any genre. My compositions ring of gut-wrenching, heart-thumping overtones designed to transform cinematic works of art into blockbuster magic! My approach, and sole objective, is to captivate, excite and inspire viewers while leaving a lasting impression of the unique story being presented to them. My most recent acclaim includes an award for best original score in "If I Should Die Before I Wake" by Southwood Pictures directed by Eric Ayala.

I hope you're all having a wonderful week!

My 5 Questions:

My general question is: what did you see and experience?

  1. What did you see?

  2. How much notice did you have before the imprisoning took place?

  3. Were you aware of any torture taking place - was there a sense of don't ask questions?

  4. At what point were you relieved of any responsibility to come into work, if ever? Did they have any caretakers still working there or just military/government staff? (I'm mainly interested in hearing from someone who was still working during the imprisonment period).

  5. Did the imprisoned guests still continue to receive lavish treatment? What about the richest within eg Alwaleed bin Talal?

So if I don't get to your question right away, I will try to get to it...eventually! Thanks for your patience.

I am a volcanologist working on a variety of topics related to volcanoes worldwide, and funded by National Science Foundation. My cruelly-in-need-of-updating website is here: http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/GG/FACULTY/tshea/index.html

Many thanks to the US Geological Survey for providing updates on the eruption (imagery, seismicity, deformation, lava flow maps) every day despite the incredibly busy situation. https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/kilauea/

Hi everyone, I’m Naaman Gambill, and I’ve been a beekeeper in Chicago for the last 7 years. I’m here to answer questions with help from Atlas Obscura. I’m founder and manager of a beekeeping supply store called the Hive, which is Chicago’s first fully devoted beekeeping store. The plight of bees has brought a surge in new beekeepers (there are about 1000 registered beekeepers in the Chicago area alone), so I established the store thinking there needed to be a place devoted to offering new and established beekeepers supplies, and even more importantly, to be a place where people could to actually talk to experienced beekeepers. Before opening the store, I was head Beekeeper for Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance and Westside Bee Boyz LLC. Currently, The Hive manages over 100 hives throughout the city and sorrounding area for clients like the Shedd Aquarium, Revolution Brewery, Right Bee Cider, Chicago Park District, and many more! I’ve also done school and community outreach to teach the importance of beekeeping in cities and in general. Looking forward to your questions!

EDIT: Thanks so much for the questions guys and gals, but I have to get back to my ladies as it is swarm season! If you have any follow up questions don’t hesitate to reach out on Facebook or Instagram or even come check us out on the Westside of Chicago!

Hi! I'm Tim Canova, running for Congress in Florida's 23rd District.

For those who are unaware, I'm facing Debbie Wasserman Schultz in a rematch this year, but this time as an independent. With our decision to challenge the Democratic establishment in an open general election, South Florida is once again the epicenter of our political revolution. We all know how important it is to defeat a career politician like Wasserman Schultz, who rigged the Democratic presidential primaries and caucuses while pushing the agenda of her wealthy corporate donors – from Wall Street Banks and predatory payday lenders, to private prison companies, Big Pharma, and the fossil fuel industry.

We also recently won our public records lawsuit against Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes. The Court found that Supervisor Snipes violated state and federal laws by destroying all of the original paper ballots cast in our 2016 primary against Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Most egregiously, the Supervisor ordered the destruction of ballots after we sued to inspect and copy the ballots! Because of this, election integrity has become front and center in our progressive campaign. Without integrity in our elections, it will be that much more difficult to ensure progressive victories throughout our country.

With that said, our campaign is and always will be fighting for important issues like Single Payer Medicare For All, banning private prisons, ending the failed War on Drugs, raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, "mending" not "ending" the Fed, fair not free trade deals, banning pipelines and fracking while converting to 100% renewable energy, and tuition free college tuition.

Join our campaign at https://timcanova.com/

If interested in volunteering, please email Tony Dechario at Tony@TimCanova.com.

Small donations are always welcome, since I'll always refuse to take any predatory special interest money or PAC money, at https://actionnetwork.org/fundraising/contribute-now-to-tim-canova-for-congress
