BAODING, China (AP) — Wei Jianjun is the chief matchmaker in China's love affair with the SUV. A decade ago, the chairman of Great Wall Motors Ltd. saw opportunity as the bulky vehicles began shedding their image in China as a farm tool.

Manga, Mario and now ninja: Japan's hopes for wooing tourism

TOKYO (AP) — Japan is turning to those hooded samurai-era acrobatic spies known as ninja to woo tourism. The Japan Ninja Council, a government-backed organization of scholars, tourism groups and businesses, said Wednesday that it's starting a Ninja Academy to train people in the art of ninja, and building a new museum in Tokyo devoted to ninja, set to open in 2018. "The art of ninja is made up of various elements, such as combat, survival techniques and astronomy," Jinichi Kawakami, known as "the last ninja" and a master of the Koga ninja school, told reporters at the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan.

Republicans skeptical of Wolf's minimum wage, shale tax plan

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Republican state lawmakers questioned Democratic Gov.
