Interview with model/business woman, Nubian Queen
Tell me something about yourself.
• What are your hobbies or interests outside of modeling? I love doing makeup, going shopping, drawing/painting, writing poetry.
Are you currently working or attending school? I am in school and currently attend Georgia state university.
• What is one professional goal you have for yourself?
My professional goal is to become successful enough in my modeling career and business so that I can give back to the community in which I grew up (south side of chicago) and to also make a positive impact/difference on others especially young black women.
• What made you decide to be a model?
Growing up a lot of people told me that I should model and I’ve always wanted to do it but I thought it could only be a dream for me then I decided to make it a reality.
• How do you handle feedback?
I absolutely love feedback. I feel that feedback can be beneficial and gives you the opportunity to improve on yourself.
• Tell me about a challenge you faced when modeling.
A challenge that Ive faced when modeling is working with the right people. Finding someone who is genuine and that has your best interest at heart can be pretty tough but with the right team by my side I’ve been able to distinguish who’s good for business and who’s not.
• Who is your favorite designer and why?
I don’t really have a favorite designer but if I had to pick I would have to say LV because it’s a classic and you can never go wrong with LV.
• What type of modeling are you hoping to do?
I’m an artist at heart so fashion and runway modeling is what I prefer to do but I’m open to other things such as commercial and promotional modeling because I’m also a business woman.
• What is your favorite photo in your portfolio? Why?
My favorite photo on my portfolio is the shoot I did with the all black outfit and the red background drop. So far I have been the brains behind all of my shoots coming up with creative ideas and turning that into art. When I did this shoot I was going for a black Mona Lisa type of look and when I did the shoot I was happy with what the finishing product was because I felt that it was giving exactly what I wanted.

quantum wormholes United Kingdom has potentially figured out
Vice reports that a physicist working at the University of Bristol in the UK has potentially discovered quantum wormholes. Researcher Hatim Salih has proposed an experiment that makes a type of teleportation called “counter-transportation” realistically feasible. However, this isn’t exactly the Star Trek transporter many sci-fi fans have dreamed of over the years. Here’s everything you need to know about Salih’s quantum wormhole experiment.
Salih’s quantum wormhole is a huge scientific breakthrough.
The general theory of relativity of the famous scientist Albert Einstein affirms that hypothetical “bridges” are possible between two points in space-time. However, since 1935, when Einstein presented his theory, the existence of wormholes has been purely hypothetical. However, Salih’s experiment paves the potential way to achieve the longstanding goal of traversing a rift in space-time.
Counterportation comes from “counterfactual” and “transportation” and while similar to teleportation, the two terms are not synonymous. “Counterportation gives you the end goal of recreating an object in space,” Salih said. “[B] but we can make sure nothing happened.”
Although unfortunately, for Salih to achieve true counterportation, they’ll have to wait a few years. The quantum computers necessary to perform the task don’t exist yet in 2023. “If counterportation is to be realized, an entirely new type of quantum computer has to be built,” Salih said. However, development is underway, and Salih hopes to complete it in three to four years.
Wormholes are a classic trope of science fiction in popular media, if only because they provide such a handy futuristic plot device to avoid the issue of violating relativity with faster-than-light travel. In reality, they are purely theoretical. Unlike black holes—also once thought to be purely theoretical—no evidence for an actual wormhole has ever been found, although they are fascinating from an abstract theoretical physics perceptive. You might be forgiven for thinking that undiscovered status had changed if you only read the headlines this week announcing that physicists had used a quantum computer to make a wormhole, reporting on a new paper published in Nature.
Let’s set the record straight right away: This isn’t a bona fide traversable wormhole—i.e., a bridge between two regions of spacetime connecting the mouth of one black hole to another, through which a physical object can pass—in any real, physical sense. “There’s a difference between something being possible in principle and possible in reality,” co-author Joseph Lykken of Fermilab said during a media briefing this week. “So don’t hold your breath about sending your dog through a wormhole.” But it’s still a pretty clever, nifty experiment in its own right that provides a tantalizing proof of principle to the kinds of quantum-scale physics experiments that might be possible as quantum computers continue to improve.
“It’s not the real thing; it’s not even close to the real thing; it’s barely even a simulation of something-not-close-to-the-real-thing,” physicist Matt Strassler wrote on his blog. “Could this method lead to a simulation of a real wormhole someday? Maybe in the distant future. Could it lead to making a real wormhole? Never. Don’t get me wrong. What they did is pretty cool! But the hype in the press?
The success of this experiment could change the field of physics forever.
Additionally, Salih posits that this work is tantamount to the particle acceleration work at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN). “This work will be in the spirit of the multi-billion ventures that exist to witness new physical phenomena,” Salih said. “[…] But at a fraction of the resources.”
The ultimate goal of the quantum wormhole experiment is to “explore fundamental questions about the universe,” Salih says. And if successful, the experiment could allow scientists to research “higher dimensions.”
