Biden still trying to decide whether or not to enter presidential race

Washington D.C., Oct 5 - United States Vice President Joe Biden has confirmed that he is grappling with the decision on whether he should enter the 2016 presidential race.

Biden has repeatedly pushed back the timeline for a decision date as he struggles with indecisiveness, especially after his eldest son Beau passed away in May and said before his death that his dream was to see his father run for President one more time.

Cheating isn`t so serious when done on Facebook

Washington D.C, Oct 5 - A team of researchers exploring how players bend the rules in social media games and judge others for doing the same has found that cheaters sometimes prosper on Facebook.

New research shows that players often dismiss the seriousness of social network games, meaning cheating isn't so serious when it's done on Facebook.

Concordia communications researchers Mia Consalvo and Irene Serrano Vazquez polled 151 social media gamers between the ages of 18 and 70. They asked them to respond to questions about why people would choose to cheat on a social media game.
