Dating app helping couples cheat on each other


The popular dating app Tinder, which is supposed to help people form new relationships, is increasingly helping youngsters cheat on their romantic partners, a study claims.

However, the app also makes it easier to catch cheaters, researchers said. Scientists from the Texas Tech University in the US showed that a significant number of college students are using Tinder to meet what they called ‘extradyadic partners’ — that is, a partner outside of and in addition to the partner in a committed, romantic relationship.


“A couple of years ago, one of my students shared the story that she had come across a friend’s boyfriend on Tinder, and she was not sure whether she should tell her friend,” said Dana Weiser, an assistant professor at Texas Tech. “So, although Tinder may make it easy to meet potential partners, the potential for exposure may be high,” Weiser said.

Among the 550 students who participated in the study, 12.5% had spent time with someone they met on Tinder, 17.1% had messaged someone on Tinder, 8.9% had been physically intimate and 7.2% reported having sexual relations with someone they met on Tinder while in an exclusive relationship.

“We know infidelity is quite common among college-aged adults as they grow and learn about relationships, not to mention there is quite a bit of opportunity,” Weiser said. “Our results suggest Tinder may be one way college students meet extradyadic partners,” he said.

Ironically, although the numbers show college students are using Tinder to find partners outside their relationships, many s said they were not sure Tinder was a good way to do so.

What is the difference between a direct and an indirect address instruction ?

Direct addressing means the instruction refers directly to the address being accessed. That is, the instruction encoding itself contains the address of the location. Depending on the instruction set, it may also allow computing a small index relative to the address. When used that way, you can think of that as a direct-indexed mode. (Note: Some processors call ‘direct’ mode ‘absolute’, such as the 6502.)

Indirect addressing uses an address held in a register or other location to determine what memory location to read or write. The idea here is that the instruction itself isn’t directly telling you the address to access, but rather indirectly telling the CPU where to find that address. The processor may also allow you to add a small offset to the indirect address, giving an indirect-indexed addressing mode.

What Is Defensive Programming ?

Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed. – WikiPedia


Introduction Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed.
Advantages Defensive programming is an approach to improve software and source code, in terms of:
General qualityMaking the source code comprehensibleMaking the software behave in a predictable mannerDrawback Overly defensive programming, however, may safeguard against errors that will never be encountered, thus incurring run-time and maintenance costs. There is also the risk that the code traps or prevents too many exceptions, potentially resulting i…
