SolarCity recuses two more board members from voting on Tesla offer

File photo of Elon Musk, chairman of SolarCity and CEO of Tesla Motors, speaks at SolarCity?s Inside Energy Summit in Midtown, New YorkTwo additional SolarCity Corp board members with ties to Elon Musk are recusing themselves from making decisions regarding Tesla Motors Inc's offer to buy the solar power company, in a bid to alleviate corporate governance concerns surrounding a potential deal. The new recusals mean the majority of SolarCity's board will be sitting out the decision on whether to be acquired by Tesla. Peter Rive, who is the cousin of Tesla chief executive and SolarCity chairman Musk, along with JB Straubel, chief technology officer and co-founder of Tesla, are both recusing themselves from the decision-making process, SolarCity spokesman Jonathan Bass said in a statement emailed to Reuters late on Friday.

Now You Can Get Monty Python Coconuts for Your Bike
Your bike just got way cooler

Monty Python fans, rejoice. A five-ounce bird could not carry a one-pound coconut, but now your bike can.

With Trotify, a wooden mechanical device that sits on top of the front wheel, you can sound like a horse when you bike, NPR reports. It features empty halves of coconut banging together, making a “clop” sound. It fits to the front brake mount, like a reflector.

It’s also DIY. Trotify’s parts pop up from a sheet of wood and can be assembled at home. Once you find a suitable coconut and fit it on your bike, Trotify also acts as an alternative to a bell to any passersby.

A studio called Original Content London is the mastermind behind this Holy Grail of a gadget. In 2013, Trotify announced on its Facebook page that all its Trotifies have shipped, but last year, Trotify commented that it will distribute its products internationally by 2016. There have been no official updates since then. Trotify can be pre-ordered on its website.
