Shift Technologies Inc. Chief Executive George Arison didn’t even know what a SPAC was until last year. Now, his San Francisco-based online marketplace for used cars is hopping aboard the blank-check train on its way to becoming public.
Special-purpose acquisition companies, also known as SPACs or blank-check companies, have been around for decades, but have made a big comeback this year amid the pandemic, thanks to low interest rates and stock-market volatility. Sports-betting operator DraftKings Inc. DKNG, -4.51%,
electric-vehicle maker Nikola Corp. NKLA, -1.36%,
electric-truck powertrain maker Hyliion Holdings Corp. HYLN, -3.94%
and space-flight company Virgin Galactic Holdings Inc. SPCE, -3.12%
are among the companies that have gone public via the SPAC route.
SPACs raise money in an initial public offering, then look to buy businesses, usually within a couple of years. When a SPAC finds a business and successfully negotiates the transaction, the two merge and the

BERLIN (Reuters) – More than 130 countries have agreed on a blueprint to introduce global rules on corporate taxation to be discussed by G20 finance ministers next week, German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz said on Friday.
“With a unanimous agreement on a blueprint for reforming the global corporate tax code we have taken a major step forward,” Scholz said in a statement. “This is a positive signal and I’m sure that by the summer of next year we will be able to reach a final agreement on this reform plan.”
The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has been developing rules to make digital companies pay tax where they do business, rather than where they register subsidiaries. This could boost national tax revenues by
Donald Trump insisted on Thursday he was ready to resume campaign rallies and felt “perfect” only one week after his Covid-19 diagnosis.
Sidelined from the trail because of his bout with coronavirus, President Donald Trump is planning to hold a campaign event at the White House this weekend, a person with knowledge of the event told USA TODAY.
Trump expects to speak from a balcony at the White House on Saturday, said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. Details were not immediately clear.
Planning for the event comes as the White House has been criticized for hosting an official ceremony last weekend on the South Lawn from which many attendees later tested positive for the virus. Dr. Anthony Fauci described that event, to mark the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, as a “super spreader.”
Now that the New York Jets know that Sunday’s Week 5 game against the Arizona Cardinals is still on, the matchup still represents an uphill climb back to respectability.
The Cardinals delayed their trip to the east coast for the game when they heard the report that a Jets player had reportedly tested positive for COVID-19. That turned out to be a false positive, and the Cardinals boarded their flight, albeit later than originally planned.
“As now, it’s business as usual,” coach Kliff Kingsbury told Arizona media Friday after practice. “We’re heading out today and getting ready to play on Sunday until told otherwise.”
The Cardinals come into the game looking to snap a two-game losing streak. They started the season with two impressive victories, and the proverbial thought was that they were turning the corner in their own rebuilding process.
A spin class gym in the Canadian city of Hamilton, has been linked with an outbreak of 21 cases of Covid-19 with a further 100 people potentially exposed. The news was originally reported in the local press and cases have so far been found in one staff member and 20 patrons.
The outbreak comes amid months of speculation as to whether gyms and facilities hosting other inside fitness classes and events are high-risk during the pandemic.
Concerns seem to focus on two main aspects of gyms which may make them risky environments:
1) The number of high-touch surfaces, which may be used by multiple gym goers without effective sanitizing between uses, including weights, mats and machines. However, scientists generally now think that the risk of surface
Leaves are changing colors, temperatures are dropping and, for those currently commuting beyond bed-to-home-office, daylight drive times are lessening as darkness arrives earlier and earlier. It’s fall!
This is traditionally the season chockfull of superficial banter separating those with and without a penchant for all that is pumpkin spice. Remember those days? Those lighthearted days? Seems like a lifetime ago.
Hamilton’s King George sings, “What comes next?” We know it may be hard things. On college campuses what comes next could very well mean quarantines, persistent feelings of isolation and disconnectedness, early closures, overnight shifts to all virtual and, as is always possible during Covid-19, much, much worse. Those are the hardest things.
There are certainly other difficult things for leaders to think about as they are equally important. Also entirely manageable if we work on them together.
It is an idea whose time should not come again in local governance, researchers at the Allegheny Institute for Public Policy say: Allegheny County Council has proposed an ordinance, that as in the City of Pittsburgh, would mandate that businesses offer paid sick leave to their employees.
“This is a short-sighted measure that will harm businesses, many of which are struggling with the effects of the coronavirus and trying to recover from the economic shutdown,” say Jake Haulk, president emeritus of the Pittsburgh think tank, and Eric Montarti, research director.
The county ordinance parrots the 2015 city ordinance nearly word for word. After several legal challenges, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court affirmed the city ordinance’s validity in 2019. The high court held the measure was more a “health and safety ordinance” instead
