▶ THINGS THEY SAID
'This is experimental evidence that time travel is not possible' — Stephen Hawking, after holding a party for time travellers, but sending out the invitations after the event had taken place. Nobody came.

About Traffic Lights
Traffic Lights is available to British pig producers on Thursday nights, advising the next day's spot price sentiment. Traffic Lights is available on this website and via Twitter. The Traffic Lights spot base provides sellers who have one-off loads of spot pigs (as opposed to regular weekly supplies) with a realistic minimum base price. In many cases it should be possible to achieve premiums over base. During periods of oversupply the Traffic Lights price will be well below contract levels but the reverse applies when pigs are short and the spot base will be well above contract rates.
