* A new scanner will search some travelers at Los Angeles International Airport, searching for weapons and explosives that previous technology could not reportedly detect. The technology will reportedly peer through clothing and creates an image of the traveler's body. Questions are being raised, though, about privacy rights with the new technology.

* Some estimates say up to 5,000 people protested outside CNN's Hollywood Studios in anger over comments made by one of the network's commentators regarding China. The protest was aimed at CNN's Jack Cafferty, who angered China and many of its citizens with comments earlier this month, saying that Americans
"continue to import their junk with lead paint on them and the poison pet food" and said, "I think they're basically the same group of goons and thugs they've been for the last 50 years." Cafferty apologized, saying he was referencing the Chinese government, not the people. There were no arrests reported during the demonstration.

* The decomposing body of a male was found in bushes in San Diego's famed Balboa Park. Authorities say a homeless man discovered the body in the early afternoon hours. An autopsy will be done to determine a cause of death.


* The Los Angeles Angels scored a 4-1 win over the Seattle Mariners, while the Los Angeles Dodgers dropped a 4-1 decision in Atlanta. Both San Francisco and Oakland scored diamond victories.
