But John Kinnucan, a principal at Broadband Research, did just that when the feds showed up at his house to ask him to rat out fellow hedge-fund and mutual-fund traders as part of their massive insider-trading probe. “They said they were going to arrest me, but said, ‘We think you can help us,’” he told the Journal, adding that he told the agents he wanted to get a lawyer, and that they told him if he didn’t cooperate, “there will be trouble.” But Kinnucan held fast. He later sent an e-mail to the clients the FBI named as targets, recounting his experience in a dramatic fashion. … [Read more...] about Man Blows Off Feds,

When you look at the list of Golden Globe Motion Picture nominations this morning, the really big surprise is how few surprises there are on it. This is an organization that is known to be heavily star-driven, wanting to get as many glamorous superstars crammed into the Beverly Hilton ballroom as they can, and this year has given them a lot of bountiful opportunities to do just that — and they did. The fact that they get to split their nominees between Dramas and Musical/Comedy even makes for more merriment, a luxury the Oscars won’t have, particularly in the overcrowded Lead and Supporting Actor categories where it promises to be a bloodbath. If you are a big name and not on this list, you probably ought to talk to your publicist.

Last year the Globes were remarkably prescient in leading the way for Oscar … [Read more...] about Golden Globes Analysis – Movies: Starry Lineup Of Nominees Offers Strong Names And Big Clues To The Way Oscar Winds May Blow

No one in Oli Khan’s family had ever lived in Scotland, or anywhere near it. But when, aged 23, Khan first set eyes on Linlithgow, a modest West Lothian town near Falkirk, he saw a prize greater than home. He saw opportunity. This chilly Scottish town – whose name means “lake in the damp hollow” – was the perfect place, Khan decided, to set up a curry house: it had a decent sized population, around 9,000 people, but no Indian restaurant. With help from his brother-in-law, who was in the restaurant trade in Birmingham, he opened his curry house in 1995 and named it Kismet – destiny. Khan’s father, who arrived in Britain from Bangladesh as a waiter in 1962, had taught him that there was good money to be made in selling curry to the British, if you could adapt it to their taste for predictable sauces on a sliding scale of heat (mild korma, medium Madras, fiery vindaloo).
