While esports may have once stood for a subset of sports culture, it has grown into a full industry in its own right. Esports and gaming have burst into the mainstream in recent years, transforming from a vibrant niche to a central form of entertainment around the world, and ticket sales are transitioning from the arena, to the internet. That shift has been powered by championing from mainstream celebrities and an increasing amount of coverage from traditional outlets like ESPN, and, at least in part, the breakneck rise of Fortnite. A report from Business Insider's Insider Intelligence stated that: "As competitive video games continue to integrate into popular culture, global investors, brands, media outlets, and consumers are all paying attention. Total esports viewership is expected to grow at a 9% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2019 and 2023, up from 454 million in 2019 to 646 million in 2023, per Insider Intelligence estimates. That puts the esports audience on pace to nearly double over a six-year period, as the 2017 audience stood at 335 million." The pop-culturization of esports has helped power the explosions in esports investment and revenue. Esports has hit this stratosphere in large part because of the social component of live streaming and gaming. Video gaming-specific streaming platforms like Twitch and YouTube Gaming give fans a direct connection to the players and teams, while more mainstream socials have allowed those connections to flourish. Certain esports organizations, like FaZe Clan, are also moving aggressively into areas like merchandise, lending their brands more notoriety than if they'd stuck to esports alone. Active tech companies in the markets this week include Versus Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: VS), Caesars Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: CZR), Penn National Gaming, Inc. (NASDAQ: PENN), Glu Mobile Inc. (NASDAQ: GLUU), Super League Gaming, (NASDAQ: SLGG).

Efficacy Across Mydriatic Agents in Reversing Pharmacologically Induced Mydriasis Informed Phase 3 Registration MIRA-2 Study Design Topline Results for Phase 3 MIRA-2 Trial Expected in March 2021 FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., March 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ocuphire Pharma, Inc. (Nasdaq: OCUP), a clinical-stage ophthalmic biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing therapies for the treatment of several eye disorders, announced that the results from the MIRA-1 (NCT04024891) Phase 2b clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of Nyxol® in the reversal of mydriasis (dilation of pupil for eye exams) have been published in Optometry and Visual Science, the international, peer-reviewed journal of the American Academy of Optometry. The article will appear in the print edition and is available on-line at www.optvissci.com. “The continued peer-reviewed publications of our Nyxol clinical trial results allow us to highlight the iris dilator mechanism and emerging product profile of Nyxol. The findings of the MIRA-1 trial specifically demonstrate the potential of Nyxol to offer a safe and effective option for the reversal of mydriasis indication, for which there are presently no FDA approved therapies. The recently enrolled MIRA-2 Phase 3 pivotal trial leveraged the design and findings of the MIRA-1 Phase 2b trial,” said Mina Sooch, MBA, President and CEO of Ocuphire Pharma. The paper, titled “Phentolamine Eye Drops Reverse Pharmacologically Induced Mydriasis in a Randomized Phase 2b Trial”, reported the following key findings: In the Nyxol treatment group, 29% of subjects met with statistical significance return to within 0.2 mm of their baseline pupil diameter (PD) at 2 hours, compared with 13% in the placebo group. A significant difference was also seen at 4 hours and was independent of mydriatic agent.Nyxol eye drops demonstrated a significant improvement over placebo in reducing pupil diameter at 2 hours from the time of maximum pupil diameter, regardless of mydriatic agent. A significant improvement was also seen at 1, 4, and 6 hours.Treatment with Nyxol eye drops led to a reduction in time to return to baseline pupil diameter of nearly 2 hours when compared to placebo.When treated with Nyxol eye drops, 63% of subjects returned to their accommodative baseline 2 hours after tropicamide-induced mydriasis, a statistically significant increase relative to 38% of subjects treated with placebo.Nyxol eye drops demonstrated a favorable safety profile, with roughly one third of subjects experiencing mild conjunctival redness, but no other systemic or ocular adverse effects. Moreover, whether given Nyxol or placebo, any discomfort occurring after treatment was mild in intensity. “Many of my patients explain how frustrated they are by the lasting and disruptive effects of pupil dilation,” said Dr. Paul Karpecki O.D., Director of Cornea Services for the Kentucky Eye Institute. “The results from the MIRA-1 Phase 2b trial demonstrate that Nyxol continues to be a promising candidate that might offer a solution that could greatly improve the patient experience after dilated eye exams.” Highlights of this double-masked, randomized, placebo-controlled, multi-center Phase 2b clinical trial were presented at the 2020 annual meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) by Dr. Paul Karpecki via video submission. For more information on the MIRA-1 trial design, refer to Clinicaltrials.gov NCT04024891. The MIRA-1 results informed the trial design of the Phase 3 MIRA-2 registration trial that recently completed recruitment. MIRA-2 is designed as a multi-center, randomized, double-masked, placebo-controlled, parallel, 24-hour Phase 3 trial that planned 168 healthy subjects, and ultimately enrolled 185 subjects. The primary efficacy endpoint for MIRA-2 is the percentage of subjects (study eyes) returning to within 0.2 mm of baseline pupil diameter at 90 minutes. Ophthalmic secondary efficacy endpoints include the percentage of subjects returning to baseline PD at other timepoints, mean change in pupil diameter from mydriatic maximum at multiple timepoints, and percent of subjects returning to baseline accommodation (with tropicamide). Efficacy endpoints will be analyzed at all timepoints and stratified by mydriatic agent and iris color. Safety assessments will include heart rate (HR), blood pressure (BP), conjunctival redness, and tolerability. For more information on the MIRA-2 trial design, refer to Clinicaltrials.gov NCT04620213. There are 3 noteworthy design differences between the MIRA-2 and MIRA-1 trials. First, the MIRA-1 trial was conducted only in dark irides, which are less responsive to both dilating agents and alpha-1 blocking agents (such as Nyxol). MIRA-2 enrolled an equal number of subjects with light and dark irides. Second, in MIRA-2, two drops of Nyxol were administered in the study eye compared to one drop of Nyxol in MIRA-1. Third, MIRA-2 is employing a 3:1:1 phenylephrine:tropicamide:paremyd randomization schema for mydriatic agents rather than 1:1 phenylephrine:tropicamide in MIRA-1. In MIRA-1, it was shown that phenylephrine-induced mydriasis reverses faster upon administration of Nyxol. Topline results for the Phase 3 MIRA-2 registration trial are expected in March 2021. About Pharmacologically Induced Mydriasis Every year in the U.S., approximately 100 million eye exams are performed that require dilation of the pupil (mydriasis) to examine the back of the eye either for routine check-ups, disease monitoring or surgical procedures. Depending on the individual and the color of their eyes, the pharmacologically-induced dilation can last anywhere from 6 to 24 hours. Dilated eyes have a heightened sensitivity to light and an inability to focus on near objects, causing difficulty with reading, working, and driving. Market research conducted by GlobalData surveyed several hundred patients and eye care providers (optometrists and ophthalmologists) about Reversal of Mydriasis (as well as Night Vision Disturbances and Presbyopia). Over 65% of surveyed patients reported moderate to severe negative impact of a dilated exam, underscoring the potential value of Nyxol’s role in improving comfort and daily function after pupil dilation. Additionally, an estimated 45% of patients responded that they would be very likely to request a dilation reversal drop, and more than 40% of eye care providers would be likely to use a reversal drop if such a treatment were commercially available. About Ocuphire Pharma Ocuphire is a publicly traded (NASDAQ: OCUP), clinical-stage ophthalmic biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing therapies for the treatment of several eye disorders.

Rosa Woods - Pool/Getty ImagesMeghan Markle has said she was not allowed to make her own choices when she was a member of the royal family.The comments were made in a new preview clip from Oprah Winfrey’s eagerly-awaited interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, which dropped Friday morning on CBS This Morning.In the new clip, Meghan said that she had not been “allowed” to give an interview before.In the clip, Oprah told Meghan that she recalled calling her before her wedding and asking for an interview.Meghan said: “I recall that conversation very well. I wasn’t even allowed to have that conversation with you personally. Right? There had to be people from the [communications team] sitting there…”Oprah then said: “You turned me down nicely…What is right about this time?”Meghan replied: “Well, so many things. That we are on the other side of a lot of life experience that’s happened. And also that we have the ability to make our own choices in way that I couldn’t have said yes to you then. That wasn’t my choice to make. So, as an adult who lived a really independent life, to then go into this construct, that is, um, different, than I think what people imagine it to be, it’s really liberating to be able to have the right and the privilege in some ways to be able to say, ‘Yes, I am ready to talk.’ To say it for yourself…. To be able to just make a choice on your own, to be able to speak for yourself.”Meghan’s new comments appear to reiterate a frequent complaint of hers that she was denied her voice and agency when she was a member of the royal family.The new clip came as tensions between Meghan and Harry and Buckingham Palace boiled over into all-out war, with reports in the British media suggesting multiple witnesses were ready to come forward and give evidence to a hastily-announced inquiry into alleged bullying by Meghan of her staff at Buckingham Palace.Meghan’s friends responded to the bullying claims by launching a social media fightback against Buckingham Palace today calling her a “warm, kind, caring person.”In a previous clip Meghan accused the palace of “perpetuating falsehoods” about them.An emotional Meghan said: “I don’t know how they could expect that after all of this time we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

More than a quarter of lawmakers worldwide are women after the proportion inched higher in 2020, but progress is so slow that it will take 50 years at the present rate before they achieve parity with men, a global body of legislatures said on Friday. "Although progress has been steady over the past few years, it is still excruciatingly slow," the Inter-Parliamentary Union, made up of 179 national member parliaments and 13 regional parliaments, said in an annual 'Women in Parliament' report. "At the current rate, it will take another 50 years before gender parity is achieved in parliaments worldwide," the Geneva-based IPU said.

President Joe Biden plans to work with Congress to repeal the war authorizations behind U.S. military operations around the world over the past 20 years and to negotiate a new one that would curb the open-ended nature of the country’s foreign wars, according to a new report. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement to Politico that the president wants to, “ensure that the authorizations for the use of military force currently on the books are replaced with a narrow and specific framework that will ensure we can protect Americans from terrorist threats while ending the forever wars.” The announcement comes after a bipartisan group of senators, led by Senators Tim Kaine (D., Va.) and Todd Young (R., Ind.), introduced a bill to repeal the 2002 Authorization for the Use of Military Force and another passed in 1991 before the first Iraq War. It is the first time the president had publicly supported ending the resolutions passed by Congress decades ago. “Tim Kaine has been a leader on questions of war powers throughout his time in the Senate and has helped build a strong bipartisan coalition that understands the importance of Congress’s constitutional prerogatives,” Psaki said in her statement. A spokesperson for Kaine said the senator “is already in bipartisan discussion with his colleagues and the administration.” “Sen. Kaine believes that President Biden, who has a deep understanding of both congressional and executive responsibilities, is in a unique position to help America restore balance in how we make decisions about war and peace,” the spokesperson told Politico. Former President Barack Obama also hoped to replace the war authorizations but ultimately could not reach a bipartisan agreement on the specific outlines. The proposed measure follows bipartisan anger over the president’s orders to launch retaliatory airstrikes against Iran-backed militia groups in Syria last week without first asking for congressional approval, reigniting existing concerns that Congress has handed over its constitutional role in declaring war and authorizing military operations. However, though there has been renewed focus on the outstanding war authorizations, the Pentagon did not cite the authorizations as legal justification for the Syria strikes. Pentagon press secretary John Kirby instead noted Article II of the Constitution, which grants the commander-in-chief “not only the authority but the obligation to protect American forces,” and Article 51 of the United Nations charter, which gives members the right to self defense.
