The Stairs Are Better For You And Faster Than Elevators

Filed under: FitnessHealth

stairs-equals-exercise-web.jpg

A Canadian hospital conducted a study of efficiency between stairs and elevators.

Stairs won hands down.

Four doctors, aged 26 to 67, were measured taking the stairs in the six story Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, Sasketchewan.

On average, the stairs took 13 seconds to travel one floor versus 37 seconds for an elevator.

The doctors were able to cut 15 minutes from their work day as a whole.

Sedentary workers are encouraged to take the stairs. If a worker is in a small office building, the stairs are the way to go.

However, this would be harder so a worker in a high rise office.

While the health benefits of stairs haven't been researched, doing light activity throughout the day decreases fat, blood pressure and waist size.

It is still recommended that people find alternative methods to exercise as well.

Beyonce And Jay-Z Get BOOED At The Met Gala!

It seems Beyonce and Jay-Z didn’t have such a great time last night at the 2011 Met Gala.

First there was Beyonce’s custom Emilio Pucci dress which many were disappointed by and was so tight she needed help going up the stairs.

Then she got booed by the paparazzi!

Apparently, Beyo couldn’t take the time to pose for the paps for more than a few seconds.

The Cut Tweeted yesterday during the event:

OMG Beyonce and Jay-Z are being BOOED at the #MetGala for not posing for pictures! Yes, boo!

Beyonce's Pucci dress was so tight she could barely walk up the stairs as she failed to stop for the photographers.

After the photogs loudly booed Beyonce for not posing, Solange arrived and they shouted, "Don't shoot her. She can tell her sister."

Ouch! Poor, Solange!

Do you think the booing was necessary? Should Beyonce and Jay-Z have posed a bit longer for the paps?

Anna Wintour Won't Share The Elevator

We already knew Anna Wintour doesn't like stairs, but apparently she doesn't like taking the elevator with other fashion mortals.

According to the New York Times, Vogue's HBIC and her posse had an elevator just for them at the Plaza Hotel, while everyone else was forced to wait.

Eric Wilson writes:

"At 6 p.m., editors and buyers were lined up in the lobby of the Plaza Hotel, waiting for one of two elevators to ferry them to grand ballroom on the third-floor for the Thakoon show. Ding. The doors of one were held open, but the guests were told to wait. A couple of minutes later, Anna Wintour and company breezed in and took the vacant elevator. Ngh. You get used to it."

Ridiculous.

The next thing you know she'll be getting airlifted in and out of shows.

The Tim Gunn & Anna Wintour Drama Continues!

wenn_anna_tim_e.jpg

Michael Kors and Heidi Klum better think twice before commenting on whether or not they believe Anna Wintour was carried down flights of stairs.

Sources close the Vogue editor say if the Project Runway judges show any kind of loyalty to Tim Gunn it could ultimately affect how she views each of them.

Yikes.

Maybe that's why Nina Garcia sided with Anna and not Tim.

However, there is one brave sole that has will vouch for Tim.

ANTM's Jay Manuel said:

"Here's what I can say, I obviously wasn't there when this supposed event went down, but if Tim Gunn witnessed something and he's being very honest, good for him, that's what I'd have to say. But, yeah, he really does now need to be in the fashion protection program for sure."

It's a safe response, but at least someone's got his back!
