    From China to New York, place your bets! Tie the knot! Make a wish!

    Friday marked the 11th day of the 11th month of 2011. Around the world, people celebrated the triple convergence of 11s with a splash.

    Some 1,000 ethnic Chinese couples exchanged vows across Malaysia on a date viewed as auspicious and romantic. In China, a special "1111" train started at 11:11 a.m. on the No. 11 line in Shanghai.

    "The numbers rhyme with one husband, one wife and one soul in Chinese and signifies a marriage that would last a lifetime," said nurse Pua Kim Giok, 25, who tied the knot with engineer Lee Chin Siong, 27.

  • Boxing great Joe Frazier dies after cancer fight--video extra

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Joe Frazier needed the night of his career to knock down "The Greatest."

    Frazier knocked Muhammad Ali down in the 15th round and became the first man to beat him in the Fight of the Century at Madison Square Garden in March 1971, the first in a trilogy of bouts that have gone down as boxing's most fabled fights.

    "That was the greatest thing that ever happened in my life," Frazier said.

    It was his biggest night, one that would never come again.

    The relentless, undersized heavyweight ruled the division as champion, then spent a lifetime trying to fight his way out of Ali's shadow.

  • Former '60 Minutes' commentator Andy Rooney dies--video extra

    NEW YORK (AP) — Andy Rooney, the curmudgeonly commentator who spent more than 30 years wryly talking about the oddities of life for "60 Minutes," died Friday night, CBS said. He was 92.

    Just a month ago, Rooney delivered his last regular essay on the CBS newsmagazine.

    CBS said he died Friday night in New York from complications from a recent surgery.

    Rooney, also a syndicated newspaper columnist, talked about what was in the news. But he was just as likely to use his weekly television essay to discuss the old clothes in his closet, why banks need to have important-sounding names or whether there was a real Mrs. Smith who made Mrs. Smith's Pies.

  • Family: Hillary Clinton's mother dies at 92

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Dorothy Rodham, mother of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and former President Bill Clinton's mother-in-law, died Tuesday at age 92 after an illness.

    The secretary of state cancelled a planned trip to London and Istanbul to be at her mother's side.

    Dorothy Rodham was a witness to her daughter's political victories and defeats. She avoided the spotlight and rarely gave interviews about herself or her daughter and son-in-law, the former president.
