Question of the Day
Mayor arrested in purse snatching
SAN GABRIEL | A suburban Los Angeles mayor has been arrested after a purse-snatching and a wild ride through streets with a woman clinging to his sport utility vehicle.
San Gabriel police Lt. Ariel Duran said Mayor Albert Y.M. Huang, 35, was booked in jail for investigation of felony assault, felony robbery and misdemeanor battery after his arrest Friday.
Lt. Duran said the mayor had been arguing with the woman over money in a parking lot when he took the woman’s purse and got into his SUV.
Investigators said the woman was standing on the running board and reaching through the passenger window when Mr. Huang sped away, reaching speeds of 45 mph for more than a quarter mile.
The woman’s relationship to the mayor wasn’t disclosed.
Dalai Lama urges religion-science ties
ATLANTA | The Dalai Lama is visiting a university program in Georgia that aims to foster a balance between science and religion.
The exiled Tibetan spiritual leader spoke at a news conference Sunday at Emory University in Atlanta, home to the Emory-Tibet Science Initiative, now in its third year.
The program is working on a science curriculum for Buddhist monks and nuns in India. Emory President James W. Wagner on Sunday presented the Dalai Lama with science textbooks translated into Tibetan.
During a three-day visit, the Dalai Lama will teach, lecture and receive an update on the initiative. The Dalai Lama is a presidential distinguished professor at Emory — the only university appointment he has accepted. He last visited the campus three years ago.
