If you're nervous, it's probably a sign you need to look at what you've got vs. what you need.
This slump is distressing, but it need not be defining.
March of 2020 won't soon be forgotten — the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic marked a new way of life for people around the world as they dealt with loss, loneliness and processing a virus that was global in scale. Melinda Dewsbury, a literature professor at Trinity Western University in Langley, B.C., describes that time as "discombobulating." When she feels that way, she said, she often turns to poetry to process her surroundings. But she was also missing her family, in particular, her mother, and wanted to include her in her poetic practice. "Deep down, the person that I'm drawn to the most when I'm looking for comfort is my mom," she told On the Coast guest host Margaret Gallagher. Her mother, Diana Coldwell, lives in Owen Sound, Ont. When Dewsbury suggested they exchange poetry, she was thrilled. "I thought this is a really great way to leave a record of this unprecedented time in our history, so I was really anticipating sharing our poems and getting feedback, and I just thought that was a great way to connect," she said. Since their exchange began, they've written 115 poems between the two of them. Read some of their work here: "We definitely saw a kind of evolution of our poetry, of course, of the actual literary quality of the poetry, but also of the subject matter," Dewsbury said. "We kind of started out at the beginning of the pandemic, perhaps feeling a bit more dystopian in our poetry as we were trying to deal with this feeling of disconnection. But as things moved on, we wrote all kinds of things." Narrative poetry, silly poems and poems with deeply spiritual themes are all part of the collection. Although the pair still communicate by phone and through text message, they said their poetry was a way to "communicate the soul." "You have to get back into why you're thinking the way you are, why you're feeling the way you are and working that out," Coldwell said. "It's sort of an existential experience going through the pandemic. Poetry just helps you put it into words, express it and also just deal with it in a healthy way. Dewsbury encourages others to use poetry to express themselves. "It's not something to be afraid of," she said, noting people often become uncomfortable with the medium because they worry about following rules around rhyme or technique. "Abandon those, at least at the beginning, and just enjoy playing." She often turns to the senses for inspiration. For example, taking in her surroundings and thinking about something as simple as the colours in an abstract way, how they might sound or smell. "I kind of try to train myself to see things that I normally overlook. I mean, almost anything can actually become a poem," Dewsbury said. To hear the interview on CBC's On the Coast, click here:

OAKLAND, Calif. — Willy Adames hit a three-run homer in the fifth, Mike Brosseau added a tiebreaking drive the following inning and the Tampa Bay Rays held off the Oakland Athletics 4-3 on Sunday to avoid a series sweep. The A's squandered a chance in the eighth when Matt Olson hesitated on Andrew Kittredge's passed ball and was thrown out at third by catcher Mike Zunino. Jeffrey Springs (3-1) struck out two in the fifth for the win. Kittredge got five outs for his second save. Oakland lefty Cole Irvin (3-4) was looking to build on a career-high nine strikeouts his last time out that gave him 29 Ks over his past four starts while going 3-1. But Irvin couldn't hold a 3-0 lead and wasn't as dominant as in recent outings. He allowed four runs — three earned — and four hits over six innings, with three strikeouts and a walk. Rays lefty Shane McClanahan gave up three runs on four hits in four innings, struck out five and walked two. He has pitched four innings in each of his four starts. The A’s faced a left-handed starter for the seventh time in eight games and ninth in 11. Sergio Romo struck out the side in order in the seventh, then fellow Oakland reliever Burch Smith pitched two perfect innings with two strikeouts in his first appearance since coming off the injured list following a groin strain. PERFECT MEMORY Sunday marked 11 years since Dallas Braden's Mother's Day masterpiece, when he pitched a perfect game against the Rays here on May 9, 2010. Highlights of the lefty's gem were shown on the main scoreboard. San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler grounded out to shortstop for Tampa Bay's final out. “Dallas had just really good command that day,” Kapler said. “His ball was sinking, sinking away from us right-handed hitters and he had a nice backdoor breaking ball working, and he was working fast. One of the things that we ask of our pitchers, like, really pushing the pace of the game. "That game went really fast. Being on the other side — we have also been on the side of Mark Buehrle's gem — you never want to be in that position and you're going to scratch and claw to try to ensure that doesn't happen. He just beat us that day.” Braden pitched the A’s first perfecto since Hall of Famer Jim “Catfish” Hunter on May 8, 1968, against the Minnesota Twins. GRAND REOPENING A’s President Dave Kaval is aiming for a “grand reopening” July 2 against the Red Sox with fireworks ahead of July 4 and more fans in the lower bowl of the Coliseum if COVID-19 restrictions soften in Alameda County and social distancing isn’t as necessary outdoors. “We're thrilled that fans are back in the building. It's really exciting to see everyone out here on Mother's Day, a lot of really good energy,” Kaval told The AP. “We're excited to have more fans, hopefully a grand reopening in early July without the social distancing. It could be a great thing, the fireworks, could be amazing.” Sunday drew a crowd of 6,911. TRAINER’S ROOM Rays: CF Kevin Kiermaier went on the 10-day injured list with a sprained left wrist that he hurt trying to steal second base in the second inning Saturday. X-rays were negative but he was still in pain Sunday. Manager Kevin Cash called it a “no-brainer” it would take some time to heal, and Kiermaier may be examined further once the team returns home. Athletics: CF Ramón Laureano, who was back playing the field for Saturday's game after a break Friday as the designated hitter, was held out as a precaution with a right thumb injury that manager Bob Melvin considers minor. Laureano could have played through it, Melvin said. ... OF Chad Pinder (sprained left knee) was set to travel and join Triple-A Las Vegas before beginning a rehab assignment Monday that Melvin figures will be at least three games. UP NEXT Rays: Cash said after the game he is penciling in RHP Luis Patino (1-0, 1.17 ERA) to start Tuesday’s series opener at home against the rival Yankees. Athletics: Following a day off Monday, RHP Chris Bassitt (2-2, 3.70 ERA) takes the mound in Boston. He is 2-0 with a 3.13 ERA over his last five outings. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/mlb and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Janie McCauley, The Associated Press

MELBOURNE, Australia, May 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Telix Pharmaceuticals Limited (ASX: TLX, Telix, the Company) today announces it has been granted Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) approval and received Clinical Trial Notification (CTN) clearance by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) to commence a Phase III clinical trial of the Company’s PSMA1 targeted prostate cancer therapy candidate TLX591 (177Lu-DOTA-rosopatamab), in patients with advanced metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). The Phase III “ProstACT” trial is an international, multi-centre, randomised controlled trial (RCT) in patients with PSMA-expressing mCRPC, experiencing disease progression following prior treatment with a novel androgen axis drug (NAAD). The ProstACT trial will enrol approximately 390 patients and incorporates patient selection using 68Ga-PSMA imaging with TLX591-CDx (Illuccix®). The trial will compare standard of care therapy alone versus standard of care therapy plus TLX591, with a primary endpoint of radiographic progression-free survival (rPFS). Trial secondary endpoints will include overall survival and quality-of-life assessment. Telix has commenced the initiation of Australian ProstACT trial sites and will add global sites progressively during the second half of 2021, subject to the requisite approvals. Telix Chief Executive Officer Dr. Christian Behrenbruch stated, “The commencement of the ProstACT Phase III study for TLX591 marks a major corporate milestone for Telix that brings the Company a step closer to delivering on a major unmet medical need for treatment options in this patient population. ProstACT builds on a significant body of clinical data for TLX5912, which to date has been studied in over 200 patients with advanced prostate cancer, across five previous studies. TLX591 has demonstrated promising and competitive clinical potential that we believe warrants further confirmation in this second-line disease setting. It is also noteworthy that Telix’s differentiated approach to integrating molecular imaging with PET alongside therapy, enables a comparatively streamlined study that we believe will support efficient patient enrolment and study execution.” About Prostate Cancer Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men after skin cancer and worldwide 1.4 million men were diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2020.
