It leads with the abduction of a 4-year old girl from a small town in Poland, near to the border with Russia, after which it very quickly becomes a story of global human trafficking, with the screen populated by some vile and utterly repulsive characters.

This year marks the 47th annual photomicrography competition from Nikon Instruments Inc, the world's longest-running microscopy image competition, and the winners are as bewilderingly stunning as ever.
Capturing this kind of image is no small feat, no pun intended. Jason took this image using a custom-made microscope system that snapped around 200 individual images of the leaf and stacked them together. It also required a complex arrangement of both transmitted and reflected light to highlight all three planet structures. The image was then subtle tweaked in post-production to further bring out these features.
While classical spin systems in random networks have been intensively studied, much less is known about quantum magnets in random graphs. Here, we investigate interacting quantum spins on small-world networks, building on mean-field theory and extensive quantum Monte Carlo simulations. Starting from one-dimensional (1D) rings, we consider two situations: all-to-all interacting and long-range interactions randomly added. The effective infinite dimension of the lattice leads to a magnetic ordering at finite temperature Tc with mean-field criticality. Nevertheless, in contrast to the classical case, we find two distinct power-law behaviors for Tc versus the average strength of the extra couplings. This is controlled by a competition between a characteristic length scale of the random graph and the thermal correlation length of the underlying 1D system, thus challenging mean-field theories. We also investigate the fate of a gapped 1D spin chain against the small-world effect.
Colour, texture, and shape sublimely intermingle in the world outside my window. Mottled green vines grow in a tangle punctuated by shiny red orbs of cherry tomatoes. Scalloped leaves drift to the ground as the wind rustles the tree branches. But gazing at this tableau, I know another visual feast hides in plain sight: the world of the tiny.
