By Aditi Shah NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Indian automakers will this week urge the government to lower a proposed sales tax on hybrid vehicles, as they fear the planned rate could make development of the technology unviable, industry sources and executives told Reuters on Monday. Last week, India said it would tax hybrid vehicles at a rate as high as 43 percent under a new unified tax regime set to come into effect from July 1. India's auto trade body, whose members include companies such as Maruti Suzuki, Mahindra & Mahindra and Toyota Motor Corp, will push to lower the proposed rate, an industry source involved in the matter said.

By Christian Levaux CANNES, France (Reuters) - Clint Eastwood was just like any other American boy growing up on the Westerns of the 1930s and 40s, he told a seminar at the Cannes Film Festival, where he recounted his rise to movie star and acclaimed director. "Every kid wanted to be in a Western and every kid wanted to pack a gun and ride a horse," Eastwood, 86, told admirers at a masterclass he gave on the fringes of the festival. "So as a kid I liked (Westerns) very much." After playing the Man with No Name in Sergio Leone's 'spaghetti Westerns' in the 1960s, Eastwood became "Dirty" Harry Callahan, the cop who broke all the rules. "A lot of people thought it was politically incorrect," he said of "Dirty Harry", the 1971 film in which he points his .44 Magnum pistol at bad guys and asks them if they "feel lucky" before he pulls the trigger.

As someone who has studied bobcats for almost four decades, wildlife ecologist John Litvaitis remembers many times returning from the field without spotting a single one of these solitary and shy creatures that often hunt at dusk. A website that Litvaitis set up to understand the bobcat rebound in New Hampshire features hundreds of amateur photographs — of a cat lounging on someone's lawn, another stalking a chipmunk, a third sitting contentedly after gobbling up a guinea fowl and peacock. "They are back in New England and at least as abundant as they were 100 years ago, if not more," said Litvaitis, who conducted much of his research while at the University of New Hampshire.

By Giuseppe Fonte ROME (Reuters) - Italy sought to boost revenue from multinational internet companies on Monday by offering them the chance to agree on their future tax bills rather than risk disputes. For years, Italy has argued that companies such as Amazon, Apple and Google avoid taxes by maintaining that they do not have a "stable presence" in Italy, even though they generate huge revenues there. An amendment to a government decree to rein in this year's budget deficit stipulates that multinationals with total revenues of more than 50 billion euros ($56 billion) per year and sales worth more than 50 million euros in Italy can fix their tax bill in advance.
Germany and its auto industry must invest heavily to ensure it is not left behind by the shift to electric cars, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday as she laid a foundation stone for a new battery factory for Daimler unit Accumotive. "We need long-term horizons and companies that invest in the future," Merkel said at the site in the eastern German town of Kamenz. "It is important that electric mobility is ready for the market as quickly as possible." While Germany's automakers are ramping up production of electric cars, most batteries they use are made in Asia, prompting fears that Germany could lose its leadership in the core car technology of the future.
By Tim Hepher and Alwyn Scott PARIS/SEATTLE (Reuters) - Two words underpin Boeing's decision to launch a U.S. trade complaint against Bombardier , which plunged it into a row with Canada last week: "Never again". Allegations that the Canadian firm dumped newly designed CSeries passenger jets in the United States at a steep loss have threatened a sale of F/A-18 warplanes to Ottawa, sending Boeing scrambling to save the deal. Some analysts say Boeing carelessly put at risk billions of dollars of defense work or pandered to growing protectionism.
