THEY have a common punishment amongst them and they have the virus to run after them wherever they go — Muslim cleric Abu Hamza talking about gays.
CHILDREN are the major richness and the most precious good of a family. For this reason, it is necessary to help all people to be aware that the intrinsic evil of the crime of abortion, which attacks human life at its beginning, is also an aggression against society itself — Pope Benedict XVI
▶ DID YOU KNOW?
Researchers at Cambridge University and Microsoft gave 58,000 United States Facebook users a variety of tests about their personality and intelligence. They found Facebook likes are frequently correlated with IQ. For example people who like Mozart, thunderstorms, and curly fries tend to have higher IQs. People who like Harley-Davidson motorcycles and the country music group Lady Antebellum tend to have lower IQs.
▶ 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.
