    What’s Lloyd Blankfein afraid of? You can pick any number of things that could have caused the chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs to go out and hire an expensive criminal defense attorney, but his most pressing concern has to be a guy named Rajat Gupta. Gupta was a friend of Raj Rajaratnam, the founder of Galleon Group who is going to jail for insider trading. Gupta was also an esteemed member of Goldman’s board of directors and would have been aware of anything important that was occurring at Goldman Sachs.

    Tomatoes don't agree with John. He is sick within an hour of eating them and becomes sweaty and panicky. But worse than this, they also make him irritable and aggressive and liable to commit violent crimes. Jason has a similar reaction to bread. He has always loved doorsteps smothered in butter for breakfast. But it gives him diarrhoea and a weird kind of depressed 'hangover'. This makes him crave the heroin that once put his life on the skids. It may sound implausible, but a controversial theory is gathering momentum: that one explanation for crime may be found on our...
