Lucid Motors and Churchill Capital Corp. IV (CCIV) Now Much More Likely To Merge as a Consortium of Investors Led by Venrock Associates Look To Sell Their Stake To the SPAC

Just slightly more information than the Bloomberg terminal post, and a little more insight into what it may mean.

https://wccftech.com/lucid-motors-and-churchill-capital-corp-iv-cciv-now-much-more-likely-to-merge-as-a-consortium-of-investors-led-by-venrock-associates-look-to-sell-their-stake-to-the-spac-valuation-remains-the-key/

Lucid Motors continues to be the center of attention in the SPAC world as the luxury EV manufacturer’s merger talks with the SPAC Churchill Capital Corp. IV (NYSE:CCIV) continue. Now, an update on the Bloomberg terminal has unleashed a fresh new wave of buying in Churchill Capital shares.

As per the Bloomberg terminal, a consortium of investors, led by the VC firm Venrock Associates, is negotiating a sale of its Lucid stake to Churchill Capital. Readers should note that Venrock Associates is one of the oldest investors in Lucid Motors, having participated in the company’s Series B financing in 2009. In that round, Lucid Motors – known as Atieva back then – raised $7.1 million from Venrock, the China Environment Fund, etc.

Now, this development has two major implications for the ongoing merger talks between Lucid Motors and Churchill Capital. First, this indicates that negotiations continue to plough ahead, thereby brightening the prospects for an eventual agreement. However, more importantly, this development cuts to the very heart of the purported valuation concerns that have been stalling these talks. We were able to glean from a number of sources that, in light of the ferocious rally in Churchill Capital shares, valuation remained a key concern between the two negotiating parties and the Saudi PIF, which retains a controlling stake in Lucid Motors. Before explaining further, readers should note that a SPAC only acquires a fraction of its target company – usually around 10 percent. Should Venrock-led consortium sell its stake to Churchill Capital, the SPAC would directly need to acquire a smaller stake in Lucid Motors while allowing for a higher overall valuation, thereby brightening the prospects for the merger. A key assumption here is that Churchill Capital is able to negotiate a very attractive price for the consortium’s stake.

Despite the promising nature of this development, investors should not get carried away as the PIF has yet to confirm the mode through which Lucid Motors’ shares would be publicly floated. The options continue to include an IPO, direct listing, a SPAC merger, and another private funding

Black Doctors Consortium Vaccines (Liacouras) turning away people at door for unstated rules - happy to take your donations though!

Despite waiting two hours in line in snow, several people were refused at the front door. They stated they couldn’t be served. Zip codes weren’t being served or the ID wasn’t acceptable. Cited the “rules” on the website.

No mention of this in the “you’re pre-registered, come this weekend” email or even explicitly stated on their social media or Instagram.

No announcements to the line No signage at all

I was shocked and asked why they couldn’t be made an exception, zero empathy.

But they ask for donations! PFC bells anyone?

EDIT: commenter posted news articles that state the rules, but NONE of their own media says as much explicitly:

https://blackdoctorsconsortium.com/

https://instagram.com/blackdoctorscovid19consortium?igshid=sbyhyulvfcrz

imgur album of the EMAIL, nothing!

Double edit; to clarify, this is not an issue with their message or goal, but is just a personal complaint about yet another mismanaged company being given public resources in a global pandemic.

Triple edit: they seem to finally have noticed the need for clarity and have specified in small font on their website, and Instagram. Glad they recognized the need for transparency.

The EDS Toolkit, the RCGP and RCPCH, the AHEAD Coalition, the International Consortium, child abuse, FII/Munchausen's by proxy and the 2021 diagnostic criteria (long)

EDIT: TL;DR is up in the comment thread, it won't fit in the post itself due to the post character limit.

If you didn’t catch the EDS Toolkit incident that happened last month, the EDS Toolkit was going to be taken down by the RCGP but after a fairly minor campaign against the decision it got a reprieve of 6 months.

In summary, paediatricians from the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health raised concerns about the contents of the EDS Toolkit in the summer of 2020, and in response, the Royal College of GPs considered 'all options' and concluded that a full review was required. However, due to the pandemic they didn’t have the time and resources necessary to carry it out, and so could no longer host the Toolkit and would take it down at the end of January 2021. They didn’t discuss this with EDS-UK or the makers of the Toolkit before making their decision. You can read more at the first 3 links below.

Relevantly, back in October 2020 the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health published a position statement on hEDS/HSD diagnosis’ in children and adolescents. The (fairly short) statement can be read at the fourth link below, but most notably it says:

‘In some young people persistent pain, with or without joint laxity or disease, leads to other disabling symptoms including sleeplessness, anxiety, reduced mobility/deconditioning, altered bowel habit, profound dizziness, nausea, blurred vision and hypersensitivity (sound, light and touch). (...) Implications for practice:

Paediatricians and adolescent physicians should use the current EDS2017 criteria to correctly diagnose hEDS (pages 17-19).

Health professionals and families should be advised that there is no clear collagen or other connective tissue abnormality underlying hEDS.

Understand that persistent musculoskeletal pain (with or without joint laxity) is known to be associated with other symptoms and signs (including altered bowel habit, profound dizziness, nausea, anxiety, blurred vision and hypersensitivity).

Clinical findings including fractures, retinal haemorrhages and extensive bruising cannot, as evidence currently stands, be attributed to hEDS. These must be investigated further to exclude other diagnoses and ensure that children are safeguarded.

All children and adolescents with hEDS, where symptoms are significant, should receive early multidisciplinary assessment and therapy within a paediatric/adolescent rehabilitative setting which encourages mobility and normal functi

So with all of the posts about people being turned away from BDCC clinics even with a registration/invitation because of these new ZIP code restrictions- has anyone that already received their first dose through BDCC been turned away for their second dose after having been invited? The appointment notice says nothing about restrictions but apparently neither did anyone’s first dose appointments. I’m worried about taking off work and standing in line for hours to be turned away, especially because I don’t know where I’d turn to get a second dose at this point.

[cheesemaking] A Small Cheesemaker in Australia vs The Consortium for the Protection of Grana Padano Cheese

G'day Curd Nerds! I'd like to tell you about a bit of hobby drama that is not so much a tempest in a teapot as it is a bit of a ripple in a teacup. It's drama that's so small, in such a peaceful little corner of the internet that I almost hesitate to bring it here- except, the resolution has such a unique blend of petty and wholesome that I thought perhaps others might find the story diverting.

The ingredients:

First, the Cheeseman: On youtube, there is a man whose entire channel revolves around cheese. His name is Gavin, and telling you this is not doxxing because that is literally his channel name. You can find his channel here: https://www.youtube.com/c/GavinWebber/featured However, in the spirit of not using real names (even ones so thoroughly public), I will be referring to him here as The Cheeseman.

I came across his channel in March and got hooked on his videos because literally all he uploads (aside from Q&A livestreams) is videos where he walks through cheesemaking recipes, explaining the process the whole time in a very mellow, soothing voice, and tasting videos for the cheeses he's made. His videos are very calming, and exactly what I needed because, y'know, pandemic. His channel has 251K subscribers, which is nothing to sneeze at, but also not enormous. It's also home to one of the most generally positive comments sections of any I've seen; I don't often read comments sections so it's very possible I've missed things, but generally all I see is positive comments and conversations among folks who have attempted to make the cheeses in the videos.

Next, the cheese: Grana Padano

Grana Padano is a type of Italian cheese similar to Parmigiano-Reggiano. It's a hard cow's milk cheese with a grainy, crumbly texture. It's also PDO, that is "Protected Designation of Origin", and has been since 1996. Essentially, just like champagne is only champagne if it comes from the Champagne wine region of France, otherwise it's just sparkling wine (and Destiel is only Destiel if it comes from Supernatural, otherwise it's just sparkling bury your gays), Grana Padano is only Grana Padano if it comes from the Po river valley in northern Italy, otherwise you cannot use that name to describe a cheese.

Which brings us to: The Consortium for the Protection of Grana Padano Cheese

This is a legally-recognized group whose purpose is "preserving Grana Padano and its Protected Designation of Origin (in

Aussie cheesemaker Gavin Webber gets a cease and desist from an Italian Cheese making consortium

Gavin explains it here: https://youtu.be/M_AzMLhPF1Q

TL;DR: Gavin received a cease and desist from an Italian cheese consortium to take down a video in which he makes a Grana Padano style cheese, they claim he’s making counterfeit cheese. He mentions in the video it’s not Grana Padano.

UPDATE: They apologised https://youtu.be/7Xy_KkZDiTE

Here’s the run down:

Gavin Webber is an Aussie (Victorian based) who makes cheesemaking videos on YouTube. He has 250,000 subscribers. He starts his videos with his signature “G’Day Curd Nerds”. He’s a seriously top bloke and his videos are soothing to watch even if you’re not into cheese making. Americans like to refer to him as the Bob Ross of cheese making.

He made a video about making an Italian hard cheese in the style of Grana Padano. This cheese is protected in the EU as a PDO (protected designation of origin), kinda like how Champagne is. Gavin even mentions this in the video and says what he making is specifically not Grana Padano.

A cheese consortium in Italy still took issue with the video and sent a cease and desist to Gavin, alledging he was teaching people how to make counterfeit Grana Padano.

Gavin points out that he must have got the recipe scarily close for them to have sent that letter.

They gave him 5 days to remove the video and he said he would. Video will be up until Sunday https://youtu.be/s6T_BJjitGQ

In the future he’ll not mention PDO cheese names. I personally vote for him to call them sparkling cheeses.

While he could probably fight it, I reckon Gav’s in a personal place where it’s just not worth it. His wife had cancer this year and that’s probably drained him a lot and so it’s not worth his time or effort.

Ironically more people are going to watch the video now than would have before the cease and desist.

EDIT: They’ve apologised to him! https://youtu.be/7Xy_KkZDiTE
