The death of journalism has been greatly exaggerated. As we embark on a new year, the role of journalist—and photojournalist—will be as important as ever. Part of the reason is documentation, and The New York Times has gathered proof of how important, moving, heartbreaking, and encouraging that can be. This is The Year in Pictures 2016, a photographic trip through the past wild year. Take a look at some of the stunning shots and see the whole collection at NYTimes.com.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
