Polyamory (from Greek πολύ poly, "many, several", and Latin amor, "love") is typically the practice of, or desire for, intimate relationships where individuals may have more than one partner, with the knowledge and consent of all partners. It has been described as "consensual, ethical, and responsible non-monogamy". However, the meaning of polyamory is also an issue of ongoing debate. For example, although polyamory is typically defined as a relationship practice or approach to relationships, some believe that it should also be considered an orientation or identity (analogous to sexual orientation or gender identity). Polyamory is sometimes used in a broader sense, as an umbrella term that covers various forms of consensual multi-partner relationships, or forms of consensual non-exclusive sexual and/or romantic relationships. Terminology No single definition of "polyamory" has universal acceptance. Forms Cultural diversity Religion

The boundaries in these relationships are remarkably varied, with some couples negotiating one-off "swinging" or partner-swapping experiences. and others forming stable bonds among three, four or five partners simultaneously. The latter is a version of polyamory, relationships in which people have multiple partnerships at once with the full knowledge of all involved. Polyamorous people have largely flown under the radar, but that's beginning to change as psychologists become intrigued by this unusual group.

Short sprints can be more effective than hours jogging, according to a study. Photo: Dallas Kilponen SPRINT training for 60 minutes a week burns the same amount of body fat in men as jogging for seven hours a week, Sydney scientists report. More than 40 overweight males participated in a short, high-intensity training regime based on cycle sprints over 12 weeks and measured a significant drop in their abdominal fat and an increase in muscle mass. The lead researcher, Steve Boutcher, said the training program provided the ideal amount of exercise intensity for health benefits, including weight loss, in a short time frame. ''We've been searching for about 10 years for the minimum amount of exercise you can do with the biggest health impact factor,'' Dr Boutcher, an exercise physiologist and associate professor at the University of NSW, said.
