(NASDAQ, KBLMKBL, KBLMR, KBLMW) (“KBL”), a special purpose acquisition company (“SPAC”) that previously announced the agreement to acquire 180 Life Sciences Corp., today announced postponement of the special meeting of its stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) to November 5, 2020. KBL determined to postpone the Special Meeting (originally scheduled for Monday, October 26, 2020) so that it better aligns with anticipated timing of the proposed business combination with 180 Life Sciences. As a result of this change, the Special Meeting will now be held at 10:00 a.m., local time, on November 5, 2020, at the offices of KBL located at 30 Park Place, Suite 64B, New York, NY 10007.

In addition, 180 Life Sciences today announced the availability of a broadcast titled “Banking on the Next Blockbuster Drug.” The broadcast covers the company’s placement in an editorial published by NetworkNewsWire (“NNW”), one of 50+ brands in the InvestorBrandNetwork (“IBN”), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company for private and public entities. The piece discusses enormous amounts of time and money that pharmaceutical companies invest into the research and development of new drugs, and rare occasions when these are approved and generate more than $1 billion per year in sales, a benchmark in the industry commonly called a “blockbuster.” The piece discusses 180 Life Sciences team’s significant expertise in developing new therapeutics that were sold to big pharma for billions. Renowned for development of some of the largest-selling drugs to ever come to market, the team aims to “do it again with a pipeline of drug candidates in sequential stages of development that address large untapped markets. The founding scientists at 180 Life Sciences discovered the anti-TNF drug class that led to Remicade, the fourth all-time best-selling drug in the world.”

Stocks rise as China confirms trade deal signing next week

Nov 27, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Nov 27, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Nov 27, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...

Stocks rise on Wall Street as rally stretches to fourth day

Nov 27, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks rallied Monday, rising with European and several Asian markets following surprisingly strong reports on China's economy. Growth in factory activity and retail sales in the world's second-largest economy both beat analysts’ expectations for last month. That layered on top of optimism from last week’s long-awaited “Phase 1” trade deal between China and the United States, which removed some of the uncertainty that’s hung over businesses and investors. The interim trade deal is one of a “trifecta of positive catalysts” that swept through the market last week and could help support it through the end of...

Wisconsin Senate to vote on firing agriculture secretary

Nov 27, 2020

MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin's Republican-controlled Senate prepared Tuesday to fire the state agriculture secretary appointed by Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, the latest in a series of skirmishes between the governor and the GOP that comes as Wisconsin is losing dairy farmers at a record pace. Republicans and Evers have been fighting since before Evers even took office. Republicans convened a lame-duck session to pass laws weakening Evers' power in December. This summer, Evers used his expansive veto to reshape the GOP-passed state budget, resulting in attempts in court and through a constitutional amendment to weaken his veto authority. And on...
