LONDON (Reuters) - Named after a British princess and tipped by John McEnroe as a Wimbledon queen-in-waiting, there are not many things that intimidate Eugenie Bouchard.

That was certainly the case on Monday as the Canadian 20-year-old made her debut outing this year on Wimbledon's famed Center Court in front of members of the British royal family and lapped up the adulation of the crowd as it rose to salute her 7-6(5) 7-5 win over Serena Williams's conqueror Alize Cornet.

"Glastonbury we are honored to kick off your weekend of fun," Wilson told revelers.

MIAMI (Reuters) - Auction website eBay has refused to list a World War II-era Mercedes Benz once owned Hermann Goering, a Nazi leader who commanded the German air force, citing a policy prohibiting the sale of offensive items.

The 1941 Mercedes Benz 540 K Cabriolet B, custom built by Daimler-Benz for Adolf Hitler’s close confidant, is currently in pieces in a high-end south Florida automobile shop, where owners said they plan to spend about $750,000 to restore it to working condition.

(Reuters) - Howie Barokas had just ridden his Harley-Davidson Ultra Limited on Highway 50 across the searing Nevada desert when he heard about the company's new electric motorcycle.

He wasn't impressed.

Then again, Harley-Davidson Inc was looking beyond loyal baby boomers like 49-year-old Barokas when it unveiled its first electric prototype bike last Thursday.

More panther than hog, the all-black electric prototype is a far cry from the bulky cruising bikes the Milwaukee-based company has cranked out since 1903.

WALLKILL N.Y. (Reuters) - When retired racehorses first arrived at Wallkill Correctional Facility, Jim Tremper expected to teach horsemanship skills to inmates who would be looking for jobs when they were freed.

Three decades later, the horse program hasn't worked out as intended, and Tremper, the farm manager, as well as prison authorities and inmates are pleased with the results.

The program called Second Chances ostensibly teaches horse grooming and feeding, and while few released inmates have taken jobs with horses, its lessons in patience, empathy, overcoming anger and impulsiveness have proven far more valuable, they say.

OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - An Oklahoma company that sells a blanket to protect children from gunfire has seen its business grow after a spate of U.S. school shootings has left parents and educators on edge.
