2016 The Year in Pictures
For decades readers across the globe awaited the arrival of Life Magazine’s “The Year in Pictures” issue. We acknowledge that the world has changed dramatically since that iconic magazine launched its first celebration of a year’s highlights in visual images. It preceded the digital age and websites and online newsletters such as this had not even been imagined. So why in the era of social media are we hearkening back to an old tradition? Precisely because the familiar adage “a picture is worth a thousand words” still rings true. Images can convey things that words cannot. That is surely the lesson that Facebook and Instagram and a host of other sites have proved. “Sites” are also what we call the senior nutrition programs across the United States where we have implemented What A Waste® projects. And the successes of each are, well, marvelous “sights” to behold. We present some of them below and invite you to take it all in.
