“Sitting is the new tobacco” says several of our news staff, as four of them in our newsroom are now standing at their computers instead of sitting in a comfortable chair, as I do.
Lower back problems, says one of them, is the reason for standing. And it’s a very good reason, I might add.
Fortunately, our office furniture adapts to putting a computer up at eye level in the newsroom. It’s the latest way to better health, they say.
We could never have done this in the typewriter days of producing news.
Aren’t we modern now!
