1. Let yourself feel their leaving entirely. Listen for their footsteps as they walk out the door of your heart. Make sure you hear it close shut. Once it does, be sure to lock it. Please, do not peer through the peephole by rereading texts and listening to old voicemails. Do not look at pictures of the two of you together. Do not call them. Do not ask mutual friends how they’re doing.
2. Sink into the silence of their goneness. Let the reality that they aren’t coming back take you over the way a storm cloud makes the sun disappear. Let it consume you and drown you until you know the presence of their absence is real.
3. Cry; cry hard. Lay in bed. Check your phone to see if they changed their mind. Realize they didn’t and remember they won’t. Cry some more. Cry until your chest feels as though it may cave in from the weight of your grief.
4. Breathe in, breathe out. As many times as necessary, until you’ve caught your breath.
5. Get out of bed. Go to your bathroom and look in the mirror. Study your tear stained cheeks, your puffy eyes. Wonder how to God someone who once brought you so much joy is now bringing you so much pain.
6. Find no reason for your pain. Feel it all anyway.
7. Get angry. Remember all their little quirks and the nuances in their voice that once lit you up. Let these things make you mad, annoyed. But know the whole time you’re lying to yourself. Know you still love them, their furrowed brow, their bursting laughter when something wasn’t even that funny. Lie to yourself until your throat gets sore.
8. Fix yourself up. See some friends. Go to a bar and pretend to have fun. Drink some shitty beer, and make sure you document it on social media. , the laughing picture says. You know better, though.
9. Be disinterested in everything. Stop drawing, stop reading stories that interest you, stop writing. Stop seeing friends, stop getting up on time, stop pulling yourself together. Let everything fall to pieces and don’t even try to care that it’s all broken.
10. Let some time pass. Go through the motions. Fulfill social obligations, work duties. Return missed calls, make appointments you’ve been putting off. Start caring that you see yourself and your life in shambles. Start picking up those pieces and putting everything back together.
11. Wake up one morning feeling hopeful. Make some coffee. Read the news. Feel at peace. And then realize it’s because you forgot them, just for a second. Feel empty all over again.
Rinse and repeat this step until you get bored of your own misery and finally kick yourself in the ass to let them go for real.
12. Start to relearn yourself. Write down what you like to do, what fascinates you. Remember what it was that made you, well, you. Write letters you’ll never send them, and throw these pieces of your heart away. Listen to your favorite songs and maybe even sing along. See your friends again. Laugh sincerely with them. Realize how much love you still have in your life even though they’re gone.
13. Hear their favorite song, or pass a spot where the two of you used to hide away. Hear their name in passing. Remember them fully, but do not fall apart. Think of how you’re still here, still moving, still breathing, without them. Smile a little. Hurt a little, but not too much. Not like before.
14. Realize and allow yourself be changed in tiny ways. Little parts of you will always be with them, and little pieces of them will always be with you. It’s okay they made an impact on your life, even if they didn’t stay.
It’s okay that you loved so deeply.

Americans have long rejected Britains booze as too warm and flat but a new wave of brewers are seeking to change that
Americans perceive several reasons to shun British beer. It’s warm. It’s flat. It’s bitter. Or, worse, it’s mild. Thanks but no thanks.
Instead they drink ice-cold Budweiser-type lagers or potent craft brews and leave the Brits to their eccentric potions.
Now a Minnesota-born brewer with a punk vibe and passion for English ale hopes to change all that, starting with “sublime pints” in Los Angeles.
“British beers have been flying under the radar here. They’re maligned and they basically apologise for being what they are,” said Andy Black. “We’re not apologising. We’re proud of what we do and want to be in your face about it.”
Black, 30, is the head brewer at Yorkshire Square, in Torrance, south of LA, which is riding a small, growing movement embracing traditional British-style beer in California.
He makes cask-conditioned bitters, milds, pales, goldens and porters which tend to be more balanced and lower in alcohol than US craft beers or imported Belgian and German brews.

Cronauer opened his Armed Forces Radio show with the phrase Goooooood morning, Vietnam! Robin Williams made the refrain famous in the 1987 film
Adrian Cronauer, the man whose military radio antics inspired a character played by Robin Williams in the film Good Morning, Vietnam, has died. He was 79.
Mary Muse, the wife of his stepson Michael Muse, said Thursday that Cronauer had died Wednesday from an age-related illness. He had lived in Troutville, Virginia, and died at a local nursing home, she said.
During his service as a US air force sergeant in Vietnam in 1965 and 1966, Cronauer opened his Armed Forces Radio show with the phrase, “Goooooood morning, Vietnam!” Williams made the refrain famous in the 1987 film loosely based on Cronauer’s time in Saigon.
The film was a departure from other Vietnam war movies that focused on bloody realism, such as the Academy Award-winning Platoon. Instead, it was about irreverent youth in the 1960s fighting the military establishment.
‘’We were the only game in town and you had to play by our rules,” Cronauer told the Associated Press in 1987. “But I wanted to serve the listeners.”
The military wanted conservative programming. American youths, however, were “not into drab, sterile announcements” with middle-of-the-road music, Cronauer said, and the battle over the airwaves was joined.
In the film, Williams quickly drops Perry Como and Lawrence Welk from his 6am playlist in favor of the Dave Clark Five.
Cronauer said he loved the movie, but he said much of the film was Hollywood make-believe. Robin Williams’s portrayal of a fast-talking, nonconformist, yuk-it-up disc jockey sometimes gave people the wrong impression of the man who inspired the film.
“Yes, I did try to make it sound more like a stateside station,” he told the Associated Press in 1989. “Yes, I did have problems with news censorship. Yes, I was in a restaurant shortly before the Viet Cong hit it. And yes, I did start each program by yelling, ‘Good Morning, Vietnam!”’
The rest is what he delicately called “good script crafting”.
When the film was released, the presidential campaign of the Democrat Jesse Jackson called asking if Cronauer would help out. The conversation died quickly after Cronauer asked the caller if she realized he was a Republican.
In 1992, George HW Bush’s re-election campaign taped a TV ad slamming Bill Clinton’s draft record. In the ad, Cronauer accused Clinton of lying.
“In many ways, I’m a very conservative guy,” he said. “A lifelong, card-carrying Republican can’t be that much of an anti-establishment type.”
Cronauer was from Pittsburgh, the son of a steelworker and a schoolteacher. After the military, he worked in radio, television and advertising.
In 1979, Cronauer saw the film Apocalypse Now with his friend Ben Moses, who also served in Vietnam and worked at the Saigon radio station. “We said: that’s not our story of Vietnam,” Moses recalled Thursday. “And we made a deal over a beer that we were going to have a movie called Good Morning, Vietnam.”
It wasn’t easy. Hollywood producers were incensed at the idea of a comedy about Vietnam, said Moses, who co-produced the film and wrote the original 30-page story.
“I said: ‘It’s not a comedy; it’s the sugar on top of the medicine,’” Moses said.
Moses said the film was a pivotal moment in changing the way Americans thought about the Vietnamese and the war.
Cronauer attended the University of Pennsylvania’s law school and went into the legal profession, working in communications law and later handling prisoner-of-war issues for the Pentagon.
“I always was a bit of an iconoclast, as Robin was in the film,” Cronauer told the Associated Press in 1999. “But I was not anti-military, or anti-establishment. I was anti-stupidity. And you certainly do run into a lot of stupidity in the military.”

The 23-year-old woman was hit after she swerved to avoid a car pulling into the bicycle lane
An Australian cyclist has been killed in a collision while on holiday in New York, police have said.
The 23-year-old woman was struck by a garbage truck near Central Park on Friday afternoon, after she was forced to swerve to avoid a car pulling into the bicycle lane, they said.
The driver of the truck was taken into custody by police, who said they would evaluate him for driving under the influence after beer cans were found in his cabin.
“The female was riding a bicycle north bound on Central Park West, in the bicycle lane, when a black Toyota livery vehicle pulled out into the bike lane from a stopped position,” a NYPD spokesman said in a statement.
“The bicyclist swerved and was struck by a private carting truck, which was also travelling north.”
The woman was taken to the Roosevelt Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
New York’s mayor, Bill de Blasio, visited the scene of the accident and told NBC news too many drivers “didn’t take care” on the city’s streets.
“This is disgusting what happened here,” he said. “Here is someone doing everything they’re supposed to do, clearly riding in the bike lane. We know in some of these cases we’ve lost innocent people because drivers didn’t take care.”
Twenty-four cyclists were killed on New York streets last year.

Mug shot for Suse Antunez-Garcia, 26, accused of murder trying to stop a “beer skip” at a Las Vegas convenience store where she worked. (Las Vegas Metro Police )
Las Vegas police say a woman working at a convenience store has been charged with murder after using deadly lethal force trying to stop a “beer skip” theft.
Police said Suse Antunez-Garcia, 26, was working at the gas station convenience store just before 6:15 a.m. Friday when she fired two rounds into a vehicle, striking the victim, a man in his 40s, in the lower back and in the leg.
“The male victim was shot while he was getting back into the vehicle during the beer skip,” Lt. Ray Spencer said, according to video posted by Fox 5 Las Vegas.
He was dropped off at a hospital 15 minutes after the shooting and was pronounced dead.
The victim was shot after he and a female accomplice entered the store and stole three cases of beer, Spencer said. They arrived in a vehicle being driven by a second man.
Antunez-Garcia fired her weapon after she chased after the store manager who ran out first and tried to stop the man and woman from fleeing, the lieutenant said.
Antunez-Garcia was booked into the Clark County Detention Center, WJBF-TV reported Saturday.

What a time to be alive: While we’re looking for signs of alien life in our Solar System and creating vaccines against types of cancer, engineers are also manufacturing self-chilling cans that will guarantee a cold brew wherever you are.
Far from being a futuristic technology you can only dream of when you’re sipping on a grimly warm beer, you can actually purchase one of these little marvels now. 7-Eleven has just released a range of cold brew coffees that come in real-life, self-cooling cans.
Named (of course) “Fizzics Sparkling Cold Brew Coffee”, the containers have been developed by The Joseph Company International, whose history with the tech goes back several decades.
The eponymous inventor, Joseph Mitchell, created a prototype of a self-cooling drink can more than a quarter of a century ago that used an HFC-based coolant system. Seeing as HFCs are an increasingly outlawed type of incredibly potent greenhouse gas and ozone destroyer, this prototype was then banned by the Environmental Protection Agency.
Back in 2012, a CO2 version was released, which works and doesn’t appear to be anywhere near as environmentally threatening as its predecessor. It’s this design by Mitchell and his company’s patented technology that appears to have been snapped up by 7-Eleven – and the coffees are available on a trial basis in the Los Angeles area.
When the cans need to be chilled, a nozzle at their base is turned, which releases CO2 with an accompanying hissing soundtrack. Turning the can upside-down and leaving it be, consumers need only wait around a minute and a half, whereupon the beverage will be chilled by around 16.7°C (about 30°F).
Details are scarce as to what precisely causes the cooling – and we’ve reached out to the company to check – but here’s our best guess based on the demonstration video.
The carbon dioxide part of the can, separate from the beverage, is pressurized and kept as a gas. Opening it to the atmosphere and allowing it to vent causes it to depressurize and expand.
A thermodynamics law known as the Joule-Thomson effect dictates that this type of expansion, via this small opening, causes a refrigeration effect. As the gas expands, the average distance between the molecules grows. Crudely put, this causes a decrease in the individual molecules’ kinetic energy and therefore the overall temperature.
It’s not clear how “environmentally safe” the tech, as the company describes it, is at this point. The CO2, for example, is described as “reclaimed”, which essentially means recycled or reobtained from another process, but no more information is given. It’s not clear how recyclable the cans themselves are compared to conventional ones either.
In any case, the tech behind these cans is, ahem, very cool.

A kindhearted waitress whips up fresh meals for the homeless in her community and says she has dished out 75,000 dinners from her own kitchen.
Granny Gloria Lewis, 54, spends her weekends making 225 fresh dinners and 180 breakfasts from her two-stove, four-fridge kitchen after years of living on the brink of homelessness in her low-income job.
Gloria, who moved to the US from Barbados in 1987, spends $700 on groceries every weekend to make dozens of home-cooked meals for those in need.
Every Sunday the charitable mom-of-two preps giant trays of chicken parmesan, spaghetti and meatballs, barbeque chicken and ribs, along with fresh veggies and rice to help those on the street.
Waitress Gloria, who also works full time, spends her Mondays in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where hundreds of people gather for her fresh meals every week.
Gloria and her mechanic husband, Anthony Vargas, 44, began their charity Care in Action in 2012 out of their own pocket making just 20 meals a week.
However, the kind-hearted pair has seen their output increase by 90 per cent thanks to the financial support of Pennsylvania businessman Bob Byers who became involved in 2015.
“My husband and I should have been putting money away, but we put it all into this, everything we had. A businessman, Bob Byers, he has been our angel. He has been an amazing support for Care in Action. He saw my struggles and how much of a sacrifice we were making,” Lewis said. “We were on the verge of not being able to do it anymore when he gave us a check for $10,000. He’s been funding us regularly ever since.”
Lewis said she helps because she knows how “easy it is to become homeless.”
“I have always worked in low-income jobs and I could see just how easy it is to become homeless. It’s so easy,” she said. “The stereotypes that surround the homeless are so far from the truth. I see myself every day in these people and I think it could be me so easily so I go and feed them.
“I started in 2012 making 20 meals every Sunday. What we did then is just go out onto the street. People were so grateful for fresh meals and prayers,” she continued. “We’ve gone from making 20 meals to over 200 every Sunday now. It’s just me and my husband. We believe God will provide for us and our needs.”
Despite her hard work, the granny-of-three feels she is not making a dent in her locality’s homeless crisis, which still sees almost 2,500 people sleeping on the streets in Broward County.
“Even though I have tried so hard, I feel like I haven’t been able to make that much of a difference because there are still people on the streets and the number is growing and growing,” she said. “I keep hope that one day there will be no one living on the streets. I feel like I can only help people so far.”
Lewis says the growing rents in her adopted hometown of Fort Lauderdale make it very difficult for people to remain off the streets and she urged politicians to do their part.
“I’ve become close friends with a lot of the people I’ve met,” she said. “The worst thing about homelessness is that even when you get off the street, it’s so easy to end up back there. The cost of housing is so outrageous here. I have a friend who got off the street but she’s struggling to get the $600 a month to keep her bed in a room with three other people.”
“Politicians have to come up with affordable housing to end this crisis,” she added.
However, the busy cook said she will continue her mission to help in any way she can, which she said was “God’s purpose.”
“I couldn’t do this without God, he called me and my husband to do this,” she said. “There’s such a stigma about homeless people but they are a group of people that are so helpful to one another and so supportive. It’s been my honor to do what I do.”

(CNN)The key to beating to the All Blacks is to believe you can beat the All Blacks. Or as England coach Eddie Jones put it in the build up, “We want to direct the movie, not just be in it.”
For 60 minutes, England was in the directors’ chair courtesy of tries from Chris Ashton and Dylan Hartley, and but for a disallowed try at the end may well have pulled it off.
But part of the All Blacks’ magic is poise and patience, and the double world champions hit back to escape with a 16-15 victory under the drizzle of southwest London.
With the World Cup less than a year away it was a significant result for both sides.
For New Zealand, it added to its reputation as one of sport’s most dominant winning machines, and was, perhaps, proof that the recent defeat against South Africa was a blip.
For England, shorn of a raft of key players through injury, it was another step in the right direction following last week’s win against South Africa in the wake of a disappointing year that has put Australia’s Jones on the ropes.
“Sometimes the game loves you, sometimes it doesn’t,” said Jones, whose side got away with a controversial late decision which could have cost them the win against the Springboks.
“We really stuck it to them. It’s a really good step forward because you benchmark yourself against New Zealand.”
The All Blacks hadn’t been to the home of English rugby for four years, but like the opening chords of a long-awaited Rolling Stones tour, the hair-raising haka told you they were back.
Not that you could hear the warrior’s chants, such was the deafening rendition of “Swing low, sweet chariot,” English rugby’s anthem. The thunderous noise at Twickenham told you this was special.
The match was also billed as a clash of styles. The All Blacks’ electric, attacking rugby — yielding an average of four tries in its last 12 games — against England’s tighter, more forward oriented game.
From the outset, Jones’ men were muscular, fired up, and precise. They met the Kiwi rapier with a cutlass and cudgel.
A flowing early move sent winger Ashton — also back for the first time in four years — over in the right corner.
As if on cue, the stadium PA pumped out the Stones’ “Start Me Up,” and it was clear England had picked up the challenge of the haka and run with it.
A second try followed, this time from a ferocious forward surge off a lineout to put co-captain Hartley over.
As England surged to a 15-0 lead it looked as if rugby’s axis was in full tilt.
But like a wily hunter stalking its prey, New Zealand remained patient, prodding and probing.
And when opportunity knocked the men in black struck with clinical precision.
Slick handling in a pre-arranged backs move put full back Damian McKenzie under England’s posts. Beauden Barrett added the conversion and landed a penalty shortly after to go in at the break 15-10 down but on the up.
The All Blacks’ engine was purring again after half time, only for a rare dropped pass to scupper a certain try.
Undeterred, England had a near miss of its own, but despite hammering away near the Kiwi line it couldn’t quite find a way through.
As Jones admitted, those are the chances you must take against the All Blacks, because when Barrett slotted a drop-goal and then another penalty on the hour mark, New Zealand were suddenly in front.
‘Trust and belief’
The All Blacks are renowned for their ability to snuff out tiring opposition in the last quarter, but England hung on tight at Twickenham.
“New Zealand generally run away from teams in those areas but they couldn’t,” said Jones.
When flanker Sam Underhill turned Barrett inside out and looked to have scored in the left corner off a charged down kick with five minutes left, the majority of the 80,000 crowd erupted with roars that reverberated down the nearby River Thames.
But the referee opted for a TV review and England lock Courtney Lawes was adjudged marginally offside in charging down the kick.
All Blacks’ coach Steve Hansen claimed there was “no doubt” it was offside, but said later he was just worried the officials would be “brave enough” to make such a crucial decision.
“I thought England were very good, but I thought we showed a lot of character to be down 15-0 in a hostile environment, with 79,000 not being Kiwis, and the weather conditions — it wasn’t conducive to being able to play razzle-dazzle rugby — and the boys stuck with it,” said Hansen.
New Zealand captain Kieran Read added: “For us it’s about trust and belief. We just had to work things out.”
After talking to reporters, Hansen set off to find his old mate Jones for a beer.
They’ll have much to discuss over the next 12 months.
“It was a fantastic game of rugby,” said Jones.
“I tell you, we’re excited about where we’re going.”
England takes on Japan next week, while New Zealand moves on to face Ireland in Dublin.

(CNN)Throughout a long and storied career in one of the most famous rock bands on the planet, Keith Richards has made no secret of his love of drink and drugs.
After decades of legendary hedonism Richards has all but given up on boozing, he revealed during an interview with music magazine Rolling Stone published on Wednesday.
“It’s been about a year now,” Richards said. “I pulled the plug on it. I got fed up with it.”
Richards isn’t entirely teetotal, enjoying “a glass of wine occasionally, and a beer,” but this is still quite the change, given his famous penchant for outrageous benders.
“It was time to quit,” Richards said. “Just like all the other stuff.”
Representatives for neither Richards nor the Rolling Stones have so far responded to CNN’s requests for comment.
Bandmate Ronnie Wood, 71, has been sober since 2010, according to the UK’s Press Association, and he told Rolling Stone that he has noticed a difference in Richards.
“He’s a pleasure to work with,” Wood says. “Much more mellow. He’s open to more ideas, whereas before I’d kind of grit my teeth and go, ‘He’s gonna give me some s**t for saying this.’ Now, he’ll say, ‘That’s cool, man.‘”
And the new regime has been good for the music, according to Richards.
“It was interesting to play sober,” he said.
“We’re weaving (guitar parts) a lot more conscientiously now. We’re much more aware of the gaps and the spaces between. We’re in our seventies, but we’re still rocking like we’re 40-year-olds, you know?” added Wood.
After decades as one of the most recognizable names in music, the Rolling Stones are still going strong.
They have been nominated for 12 Grammy Awards, winning three, and recently announced a 2019 US tour that will start on April 20 in Miami, according to the band’s website.
However the group will not be returning to Atlantic City, where a 1989 gig led to bad blood with now US President Donald Trump that lasts to this day.
Richards told the BBC that Trump was their promoter for the show, and he recalled going red with anger when the future President’s name took top billing for their show as “Donald Trump presents the Rolling Stones.”
“I got out my trusty blade, stuck it in the table and said: ‘You have to get rid of this man,'” Richards said.
The feud continued to simmer when the Rolling Stones song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” became a staple at Trump rallies, prompting the band to say they had not given Trump permission to use the song and asking the campaign to stop playing it.

What is the all-time best dive bar jukebox song? “I’m a Korean-American who’s spent 80 percent of her life working in hip-hop. So… I haven’t spent that much time in dive bars, but I’ve spent eons in karaoke bars and grimy clubs. In both of those settings, any Biggie song makes me feel at home, any Mobb Deep song off the album Hell on Earth makes me hype, and “Don’t You Want Me” by The Human League makes me sing like I don’t know I’m off-key.”
Name the first good drink you ever drank and where you had it. “Oh, I didn’t even know what a good drink was for so many years. I’m lucky my palate wasn’t scorched by years of struggle cocktails: tacky gimmick mixers by celebrity mixologists, bottle-service beverages poured out in dark clubs, and expensive headache-inducing Champagnes. I think the first good drink I had was in a Korean BBQ. It was a very simple, very humble makgeolli, which is a Korean rice “farmer’s liquor,” homemade by the chef’s grandmother. More recently, I enjoyed a reddish Kawaba Beer with some extremely amazing omakase sushi at Cagen in NYC’s East Village. I guess what I’m saying is that the quality of a drink to me is tied to its context and not its name brand.”
What book on cocktails, spirits, or food is your go-to resource? “I became a fan of the Smitten Kitchen website after I had my son three years ago. I was desperate for easy to make, home-cooked meals that could be wrapped up and reheated, and Deb Perelman’s down-to-earth recipes were reliable and comforting. Hernew cookbook is all of the same, but paired with beautiful photos and charming explanations.”
Do you have a signature drink? If so what’s in it? “I can make a very rudimentary Michelada—Mexican beer, limes, salt, hot sauce.”
What’s your favorite late-night guilty pleasure snack? “S’MORES! Why wait for s’more opportunities to come to you on vacation when you can just grab a couple takeout chopsticks, graham crackers, Hershey’s chocolate bars, and Stay Puft Marshmallows, and make the magic right there over your stovetop at home?”
Is there one musician dead or alive you’d like to have drink with? And what would you drink? “Soju in a scooped-out watermelon at a club in K-Town with Rihanna would be so fun.”
What’s your favorite shot and a beer combination? “Absolut Lime and Sapporo.”
Currently, which city has the best nightlife scene? “Hmm… Atlanta. Especially if you want to hit their legendary strip clubs. Great trap music, lemon-pepper wings, and superhuman dancers.”
What song gets a party started? “Anything from Bad Boy Records from the late ’90s.”
You’re featured in the new AbsolutTruth campaign about New York City nightlife and culture. Which old-school New York club do you wish was still open? “Moomba.”
