J.K. Rowling is finally leaving Hogwarts behind — and for decidedly  more adult fare, too. Little, Brown Book Group and Little, Brown and  Company announced Thursday that Rowling, author of the mega-successful Harry Potter series, is set to publish her first novel for adults.
“Although I’ve enjoyed writing it every bit as much, my next book will be very different to the Harry Potter series, which has been published so brilliantly by Bloomsbury and my  other publishers around the world,” Rowling said in a statement. “The  freedom to explore new territory is a gift that Harry’s success has  brought me, and with that new territory it seemed a logical progression  to have a new publisher. I am delighted to have a second publishing home  in Little, Brown, and a publishing team that will be a great partner in  this new phase of my writing life.”

Cloak announced by Pentagon aims to make someone invisible by bending timePentagon-supported physicists on Wednesday said they had devised a “time cloak” that briefly makes an event undetectable.The laboratory device manipulates the flow of light in such a way that for the merest fraction of a second an event cannot be seen, according to a paper published in the science journal Nature.It adds to experimental work in creating next-generation camouflage — a so-called invisibility cloak in which specific colours cannot be perceived by the human eye.“Our results represent a significant step towards obtaining a complete spatio-temporal cloaking device,” says the study, headed by Moti Fridman of Cornell University in New York.

Cloak announced by Pentagon aims to make someone invisible by bending time
Pentagon-supported physicists on Wednesday said they had devised a “time cloak” that briefly makes an event undetectable.

The Post's Steve Murray provides a handy guide for anybody unclear on how to cash in on a blockbuster.
