‘Antisocial network’ Cloak helps users avoid their friends

A pair of U.S. developers have created Cloak, an iPhone “antisocial network” to help users avoid running into their friends.
Cloak, created by programmer Brian Moore and former Buzzfeed creative director Chris Baker, is billed as the “antisocial network” and uses check-in data from Foursquare and Instagram to allow users to see the locations of their friends on a map, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.
“Avoid exes, co-workers, that guy who likes to stop and chat — anyone you’d rather not run into,” the app description in the iTunes store reads.
The app also allows users to “flag” certain friends and they will receive notifications when the flagged friends show up within a certain range.

He makes nutritionists frown, but a man who ate all of his meals at McDonald’s for six months says he’s lighter and healthier as he nears the end of his unconventional weight-loss plan.

John Cisna, a high school science teacher in Colo, Iowa, who gained national attention for his experiment, says he has lost 56 pounds, lowered his cholesterol and lost a total of 21 inches off his chest, waist and hips while dining only at the fast food emporium.

As enthusiastic as Cisna is about the results, even he’s incredulous about what he’s done. He documents his experience, which ends on March 15, in the new book, ”My McDonald’s Diet.”

Two artists are currently living on a giant hamster wheel inside a Brooklyn gallery, where they will remain for the next six days.

Ward Shelley, 63, and Alex Schweder, 43, have set up home inside a work titled ‘In Orbit’ – a circular residence that is installed with a bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom.

The pair move from room to room by walking in opposite directions at a slow, measured pace, for safety reasons.
