    Chinese archaeologists said that a tomb unearthed in east Jiangsu Province might be the final resting place of an emperor known for his tyrannous reign about 1,500 years ago. The 20-square-meter tomb in Yangzhou City might belong to Yang Guang, or Emperor Yang of Sui, the second and last monarch of the short-lived Sui Dynasty (AD 581-618), according to the city's cultural heritage bureau. A gravestone excavated from the tomb confirmed the emperor's identity, while an inscription about the year of his death concurred with historical accounts, said Shu Jiaping, head of Yangzhou's institute of archaeology. "But we're still not...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Transportation Security Administration managers at Los Angeles International Airport are undergoing mandatory sensitivity training after a transgender employee alleged she was ordered to dress like a man, pat down male passengers and use the men's restroom. Ashley Yang, 29, who spent two years as a security checkpoint screener at LAX, was fired last summer after co-workers observed her using the women's room, according to a copy of her termination letter obtained by The Associated Press. She contested the firing, resulting in a settlement that mandated the training.

One allegedly contained a restricted Army field manual.

Yang, the first Asian-born golfer to win a major PGA title, said yesterday that he promised to play a round of golf with former U.S. President George W. Bush. Yang was speaking to a news conference at the Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, New Jersey, just a day before the FedEx Cup playoff opener at The Barclays. He said that when he went to Carlsbad in Southern California to visit the headquarters of his sponsor TaylorMade last week, he met Bush and chatted with...

    A woman accused of killing the girlfriend and unborn child of ex-Bears star Shaun Gayle was arrested after a friend of hers agreed to wear a wire and recorded the woman admitting to committing the murders, authorities said today. The recordings finally led to a break in the October 2007 murders: Marni Kay Yang, 41, of the 5000 block of North St. Louis Avenue in Chicago, is charged with fatally shooting Gayle's girlfriend Rhoni Reuter and their unborn child, authorities said this afternoon. Lake County State's Atty. Michael Waller said Yang's friend "was instrumental in solving the case" by becoming...

    -- Yahoo Inc. co-founder Jerry Yang is stepping down as chief executive, ending a rocky reign marked by his refusal to sell the Internet company to Microsoft Corp. for $47.5 billion -- more than triple Yahoo's current market value. The change in command announced Monday won't be completed until Yahoo finds his replacement. The Sunnyvale-based company said it is interviewing candidates inside and outside Yahoo in a search led by its chairman, Roy Bostock, and the executive recruitment firm Heidrick & Struggles. "Jerry and the board have had an ongoing dialogue about succession timing, and we all agree that now...

    Asian-American groups don't like the increased public scrutiny that Hillary Clinton's mysterious Chinese dishwasher donors are getting. To which I say, in words that should be universally understood: Boo-hoo. In the wake of eye-opening investigations by the New York Post and Los Angeles Times of more dubious foreign funny money flowing into Hillary's coffers, ethnic grievance organizations are stepping forward to condemn these stories as examples of "negligent journalism." Yep. The newspapers are guilty of "negligence" because they actually broke news instead of covering it up. Both papers uncovered dishwashers, cooks and other suspect Hillary campaign contributors in New York's...

    Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said Thursday that Debra Yang's departure as U.S. attorney in Los Angeles was unrelated to her office's investigation of Rep. Jerry Lewis, R-Redlands. "From what I know, Ms. Yang's resignation was entirely voluntary. She did a wonderful job," Gonzales told a House Judiciary Committee hearing. He said that Yang had financial reasons for going to the private sector last October. Yang is not among the eight U.S. attorneys whose firings last year have turned into a controversy for the Justice Department. But Democrats have raised suspicions about Yang's case because she left while her office was...

    BEIJING (Reuters) - An 82-year-old Chinese Nobel physicist has popped the question to a 28-year-old student whom he described as his last gift from God, the Beijing Morning Post said on Friday.   Dr. Chen Ning Yang, known in China as Yang Zhenning, would marry student Wong Fan in January, the paper said. Yang won the physics Nobel Prize in 1957 jointly with Lee Tsung-dao for their investigation of the so-called parity laws, which led to important discoveries about elementary particles. Yang, whose wife died last year, is a professor at Tsinghua University. He and his wife met Wong in...

    BEIJING - Astronaut Yang Liwei isn't just China's first man in space. In the state press, he's lionized as an elite pilot, star student, Communist Party member and devoted family man. A "national treasure," one colleague is quoted as saying. Curiously, Yang himself is nowhere to be seen. The center of a campaign to turn him into China's newest role model hasn't appeared in public in the more than five days since he returned from orbit. But the media blitz has made his 8-year-old son the country's most famous third-grader. Yang Ningkang made his television debut when his father talked...
  • {Satire} Chinese Astronaut May Be Traded to NASA

    Chinese Astronaut May Be Traded to NASA (2003-10-16) -- It's every taikonaut's dream to be the best in the world. Yang Liwei is no different. The former fighter pilot became internationally famous this week by being the first Chinese person launched into space. Now, he wants to go big time. Immediately after his safe landing on the Mongolian grasslands, Colonel Yang got a satellite phone call from an American astronaut agency with an offer from NASA that he said was "more sweet than sour." "We're talking big dollars," said Col. Yang. "The government salary's not much, but the endorsements will...
