If you ask people which gender is more likely to cheat in a relationship, most will tell you that males are. But a recent survey shows that, in today's world, women are more like to cheat on their partner than men.
The survey says that the main reason for this is because of parental influence. This means that women are likely to copy what their mother does in relationships, while men are likely to copy their fathers.
66% of females who took part in this survey said that they felt they had permission to cheat because their mother had done so. 86% of men who took part said that they would stop an affair if their father found out and asked them to.
Q) Who cheats more: men or women?
Q) What do you think about this survey?
For those wondering, the survey was done by a website called Illicit Encounter, which is a dating site for married couples. They used their 100,000 members to get the results for this survey.
For over two years, video game voice actors from a variety of companies have negotiated over not receiving enough royalties for their work. It's because of this that voice actors who are part of the SAG-AFTRA union, will now go on strike, keeping silent until negotiations are taken more seriously.

Q) Are you aware of voice actors not getting enough royalties?
Q) Do you think that, in creative industries overall, there's a problem with royalties and credit given to creators?

Twitter has announced that it will be axing Vine after its usage and popularity has slumped throughout this year. While people were shocked to learn this news, the majority understood that it would probably be for the best. This can be seen as not many people use Vine, but instead use Instagram and Snapchat for publishing short videos.
Q) How do you feel about this news?
Personally, I loved the idea of Vine when it first came out because it's a lot like Twitter, in the sense that you have to make your message short and to-the-point.
Here's an interview the BBC did with Vine star Charlie Murphy. (Play Audio)

Just days away from America’s election for their next president, more of Hillary's emails have been leaked, resulting in the FBI re-opening their investigation. It may be because of this that Donald Trump has now over taken her in the polls, which gives him a better chance of winning than people originally thought.
Q) What's your view on these emails?
Q) Who do you think is gonna win?
While a lot of people have made jokes on social media about how criminal Hillary is, including myself, a lot of people have pointed out that Donald has done a lot of illegal stuff himself. This is including: not paying taxes; setting up a university that robbed students of their money; his foreign policies violate NATO, etc.
Q) Do you think Donald Trump is as bad as the media make him out to be?
