SEXUALITY is a spectrum, with people choosing to define themselves in hundreds of different ways. While it’s common for people to identify as bisexual, the term pansexual is still relatively unknown. Here’s everything you need to know about pansexuality… What is pansexuality? The word comes from the Greek prefix "pan", which means “all”. Its first use has been traced back to neurologist Sigmund Freud, who defined it as: “the pervasion of all conduct and experience with sexual emotions". In simpler terms, pansexuality is a person's attraction to people regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Pansexuals are "gender blind", meaning they don't let gender or sex affect their attraction to others.What’s the difference between bisexual and pansexual? Just like bisexuality, pansexuals are sexually attracted to men and women.

NEIL Woodford’s stricken equity fund is being wound up – leaving savers facing a “significant loss” as well as a long wait to get their money back. Assets in the fund will now be sold off and any proceeds raised will be returned to investors, starting with an interim payment in January. Mr Woodford has also been removed as investment manager of the fund, which will be renamed.

Many people in Pakistan were hoping that the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, would not return to power after the mammoth general elections that concluded on Thursday. There was a sense in Muslim-majority Pakistan that Modi's return would not augur well for ties between the two neighboring countries, as Modi in his first term had taken an aggressive stance against Islamabad. So the disappointment over Modi's resounding election victory was quite natural. "Modi and his party believe in a Hindu nationalist philosophy, which is essentially anti-Muslim and anti-Pakistan," Bakare Najimdeen from the Islamabad-based Center for International Peace and Stability, told DW.

So I do not think that he will change his policy toward Pakistan." Read more: Opinion: Modi's election … [Read more...] about What does Indian PM Narendra Modi’s reelection mean for regional rivals?
The call for boxing to be banned does not surprise after the tragic loss of a fighter. It is the default response of the anti-boxing lobby, who jump all over the sport when tragedy strikes. We mourn the departed, in this case Australian featherweight Brayd Smith, who died after collapsing in the dressing room following a points defeat in Toowoomba last week. My thoughts are sincerely with his family and for his opponent John Moralde, who will also be going through a difficult time. I know from personal experience how hard it is to process the death of an opponent, in my case it was Young Ali. I don't know that you ever get over it. The important thing is not to blame yourself. The Australian Medical Association was immediately on the attack, but I reject in robust terms the abstract arguments of those - largely from a higher social class - who dismiss the traditions of a sport that has transformed the lives of so many. I'm from a part of the world, Ulster, where boxing saved lives. I … [Read more...] about Barry McGuigan: ‘Ban boxing’ hysteria overlooks the huge amount of good the fight game does
