WHOLE MURPHY – WHOLE LABOR – WHOLE LAW

Posted on Updated on

WHOLE MURPHY – WHOLE LABOR – WHOLE LAW

Monday, June 25, 2018 marks the 80th anniversary of enactment of Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) which provides protection to people working in the US.

In my analysis, FLSA is fundamentally flawed for it divides workers into categories such as “White Collar” and “Blue Collar” without understanding basis for man’s existence in natural world. There can be no distinction among workers if Life is defined as ‘Knowledge in Action’. All human beings process similar kind of information and use chemical energy to perform similar kinds of sequential, guided, purposeful and goal-oriented actions described as ‘Metabolism’.

I ask US Congress and The US Department of Labor to put an end to division of workers into White or Blue Collar. As such, each employee and his or her employer must make determination about compensation or remuneration and agree upon salaried or hourly wage for performing labor. In my view, Natural Science does not validate the concept of “WHITE-COLLAR” as no human being performs executive, administrative, or professional service while operating metabolic functions of human bodies of their own. No man lives as boss, ruler, governor, or administrator of his own body.

Fact Sheet #17S: Higher Education Institutions and Overtime Pay Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

The FLSA requires that a non-exempt employee receive minimum wages for his or her work, as well as overtime wages whenever he or she works more than 40 hours in a workweek. Section 13(a)(1) of the FLSA, however, exempts certain employees who perform bona fide executive, administrative, professional, and outside sales duties from minimum wage and overtime requirements. These exemptions are often called the “white-collar” exemptions. This fact sheet discusses the applicability of these exemptions to jobs that are common in higher education institutions.

General Requirements for Exemptions

To qualify for a white-collar exemption, an employee must generally satisfy three tests:

  1. The employee must be paid on a salary basis that is not subject to reduction based on the quality or quantity of work (the “salary basis test“), rather than, for example, on an hourly basis;
  2. The employee must receive a salary at a rate not less than $455* per week (the “salary level test“); and
  3. The employee’s primary duty must involve the kind of work associated with the exempt status sought, such as executive, administrative, or professional work (the “duties test“).
  4. Additional information concerning these exemptions is available in Fact Sheets 17A-G. See
    https://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/whdcomp.htm.

Exemptions for Common Higher Education Jobs

Teachers

A teacher is exempt if his or her primary duty is teaching, tutoring, instructing, or lecturing to impart knowledge, and if he or she is performing that duty as an employee of an educational establishment. See 29 C.F.R. § 541.303. Educational establishments include elementary school systems, secondary school systems, institutions of higher education, and other educational institutions. See 29 C.F.R. § 541.204(b). If a bona fide teacher meets this duty requirement, the salary level and salary basis tests do not apply. See 29 C.F.R. §§ 541.303(d), 541.600(e). Given these standards, professors, instructors, and adjunct professors typically qualify for this exemption.

A faculty member who teaches online or remotely also may qualify for this exemption. The regulations do not restrict where bona fide teaching may take place, to whom the knowledge can be imparted, or how many hours a teacher must work per week to qualify for the exemption. The exemption would therefore ordinarily apply, for example, to a part-time faculty member of an educational establishment whose primary duty is to provide instruction through online courses to remote non-credit learners. The exemption could likewise apply, for example, to an agricultural extension agent who is employed by an educational establishment to travel and provide instruction to farmers, if the agent’s primary duty is teaching, instructing, or lecturing to impart knowledge. To determine a teacher’s primary duty, the relevant inquiry in all cases is the teacher’s actual job duties. Job titles or full/part-time status alone do not determine exempt status.

A teacher does not become non-exempt merely because he or she spends a considerable amount of time in extracurricular activities (such as coaching athletic teams or supervising student clubs), provided the teacher’s primary duty is teaching.

Coaches

Athletic coaches employed by higher education institutions may qualify for the teacher exemption. After all, teaching may include instructing student-athletes in how to perform their sport. But a coach will not qualify for the exemption if his or her primary duties are recruiting students to play sports or visiting high schools and athletic camps to conduct student interviews. The amount of time the coach spends instructing student-athletes in a team sport is relevant, but not the exclusive factor, in determining the coach’s exempt status.

Professional Employees

The FLSA provides for several kinds of exempt professional employees—such as learned professionals, creative professionals, teachers, and employees practicing law or medicine. In higher education, employees eligible for the professional exemption are often either teachers (as discussed above) or learned professionals (as described below). To qualify as a learned professional, the employee must satisfy three requirements:

  1. The employee’s primary duty must be the performance of work requiring advanced knowledge;
  2. The advanced knowledge must be in a field of science or learning; and
  3. The advanced knowledge must be customarily acquired by a prolonged course of specialized intellectual instruction.

See 29 C.F.R. § 541.301. Unless the employee is a teacher or practicing law or medicine, he or she must also satisfy the above-referenced salary basis and salary level tests to be an exempt professional.

In higher education, examples of exempt non-teacher learned professionals generally include certified public accountants, psychologists, certified athletic trainers, and librarians. Postdoctoral fellows, who conduct research at a higher education institution after completing their doctoral studies, likewise generally meet the duties requirements of the learned professional exemption, and they may additionally qualify for the teacher exemption if teaching is their primary duty. Of course, an employee’s qualification for the exemption depends on his or her actual job duties and education. Job titles alone are not sufficient for determining whether an employee satisfies the duties test.

Administrative Employees

Various employees at higher educational institutions may qualify as exempt administrative employees. The administrative exemption applies when the following requirements are met:

  1. The employee’s compensation must satisfy the above-referenced salary basis and salary level tests;
  2. The employee’s primary duty must be the performance of office or non-manual work directly related to the management or general business operations of the employer or the employer’s customers; and
  3. The employee’s primary duty must include the exercise of discretion and independent judgment with respect to matters of significance.

See 29 C.F.R. § 541.200. Such administrative employees in higher education might include, for example, admissions counselors or student financial aid officers. An employee’s qualification for the exemption depends on his or her actual job duties; job titles alone are not sufficient for determining whether an employee satisfies the duties test.

Notably, there are specific regulatory provisions for certain administrative employees—known as “academic administrative employees”—whose primary duty is performing administrative functions directly related to academic instruction or training in an educational establishment. To be exempt as an academic administrative professional:

  1. The employee must satisfy the above-referenced salary basis and salary level tests or receive a salary of at least the entrance salary for teachers in the same educational establishment; and
  2. The employee’s primary duty must be to perform administrative functions directly related to academic instruction or training in an educational establishment.

See 29 C.F.R. § 541.204. Employees who work in higher education but whose work does not relate to the educational field (such as work in general business operations) do not qualify as exempt academic administrative employees. See id.

In higher education institutions, exempt academic administrative personnel generally include department heads, intervention specialists who are available to respond to student academic issues, and other employees with similar responsibilities. Exempt administrative personnel would likewise generally include academic counselors who administer school testing programs, assist students with academic problems, and advise students concerning degree requirements. Again, whether an employee satisfies the duties test for these exemptions depends on the employee’s actual job duties, not just the employee’s job title.

Executive Employees

To qualify for the executive exemption, an employee must satisfy the following tests:

  1. The employee must receive compensation that satisfies the above-referenced salary basis and salary level tests;
  2. The employee’s primary duty must be managing the enterprise or a customarily recognized department or subdivision thereof;
  3. The employee must customarily and regularly direct the work of at least two or more other full-time employees or their equivalent (for example, one full-time and two half-time employees); and
  4. The employee must have the authority to hire or fire other employees, or in the alternative, the employee’s suggestions and recommendations as to the hiring, firing, advancement, promotion, or any other change of status of other employees must be given particular weight.

See 29 C.F.R. § 541.100. Various positions in higher education institutions might qualify for the executive exemption, including deans, department heads, directors, and any other manager or supervisor whose job duties and compensation satisfy the above criteria.

Student-Employees

As a general matter, most students who work for their college or university are hourly non-exempt workers and do not work more than 40 hours per week. The following, however, are examples of students who often receive a salary or other non-hourly compensation:

  • Graduate Teaching Assistants. Graduate teaching assistants whose primary duty is teaching are exempt. Because they qualify for the teacher exemption, they are not subject to the salary basis and salary level tests.
  • Research Assistants. Generally, an educational relationship exists when a graduate or undergraduate student performs research under a faculty member’s supervision while obtaining a degree. Under these circumstances, the Department would not assert that an employment relationship exists with either the school or any grantor funding the student’s research. This is true even though the student may receive a stipend for performing the research.
  • Student Residential Assistants. Students enrolled in bona fide educational programs who are residential assistants and receive reduced room or board charges or tuition credits are not generally considered employees under the FLSA. They therefore are not entitled to minimum wages and overtime under the FLSA.

An employment relationship will generally exist when a student receives compensation and his or her duties are not part of an overall education program. For example, students who work at food service counters, sell programs or usher at events, or wash dishes in dining halls and anticipate some compensation (for example, money or meals) are generally considered employees entitled to minimum wage and overtime compensation.

Compensatory Time at Public Universities

Public universities or colleges that qualify as a “public agency” under the FLSA may compensate non-exempt employees with compensatory time off (or “comp time”) in lieu of overtime pay. A college or university is a public agency under the FLSA if it is a political subdivision of a State. When determining whether a college or university is a “political subdivision,” the Department considers whether (1) the State directly created the entity, or (2) individuals administering the entity are responsible to public officials or the general electorate.

If the public university or college qualifies as a public agency, non-exempt employees generally may not accrue more than 240 hours of comp time. However, employees engaged to work in a public safety activity, an emergency response activity, or a seasonal activity may accrue as much as 480 hours of comp time. See 29 U.S.C. 207(o)(3)(A). Private higher education institutions may not pay employees comp time in lieu of overtime pay.

Note (added January 2018): *

The Department of Labor is undertaking rule making to revise the regulations located at 29 C.F.R. part 541, which govern the exemption of executive, administrative, and professional employees from the Fair Labor Standards Act’s minimum wage and overtime pay requirements. Until the Department issues its final rule, it will enforce the part 541 regulations in effect on November 30, 2016, including the $455 per week standard salary level.

WHOLE FOODS – HAPPY PLACE – HAPPIER PEOPLE

WHOLE FOODS – HAPPY PLACE – HAPPIER PEOPLE:

WholeDude Loves Whole Foods: The objective Standards for happiness at workplace are 1. Absenteeism, 2.Discipline, 3. Financial Security, 4. Sickness/Personal Injuries, and 5. Stress at Workplace. Using these criteria, WholeDude claimed that Whole Foods is a Happy Place with Happier People.
WholeDude Loves Whole Foods: The objective Standards for happiness at workplace are 1. Absenteeism, 2.Discipline, 3. Financial Security, 4. Sickness/Personal Injuries, and 5. Stress at Workplace. Using these criteria, WholeDude claimed that Whole Foods is a Happy Place with Happier People.

Whole Foods Market Inc.,(WFM) hired me during April 1997 and since that time I have been working in the Grocery Department at WFM Ann Arbor, Michigan location. Most of my fellow employees recognize me as the “WholeDude who Loves Whole Foods.” A person from Lansing, Michigan  visited Ann Arbor on April 10, 2015 and inquired if I am happy working for Whole Foods. He asked for my opinion about Whole Foods as a workplace. I politely responded that I do not believe in private conversations. I prefer to express my opinions in writing and I invite people to respond to my views by offering comments in writing. I could not continue my conversation with that person who desired to investigate working conditions at Whole Foods in general and at Ann Arbor in particular. I would welcome him and others to leave comment on this post and ask for any further information to validate my opinion on Whole Foods – “A Happy Place With Happier People.”

WHOLE FOODS – “A HAPPY PLACE WITH HAPPIER PEOPLE”:

Whole Foods Market, Austin Texas has formulated the concept of 'Whole Foods' to market organic, and natural foods without artificial ingredients, such as artificial colors, artificial flavors,synthetic sweetners, and chemical preservatives. However, it has yet to formulate the concept of a Whole Person who may benefit by consuming Whole Food. Whole Dude is a marketing concept to know the nature of the Whole Person. WholeDude Loves Whole Foods for it is a "HAPPY PLACE WITH HAPPIER PEOPLE."
Whole Foods Market, Austin Texas has formulated the concept of ‘Whole Foods’ to market organic, and natural foods without artificial ingredients, such as artificial colors, artificial flavors,synthetic sweeteners, and chemical preservatives. However, it has yet to formulate the concept of a Whole Person who may benefit by consuming Whole Food. Whole Dude is a marketing concept to know the nature of the Whole Person. WholeDude Loves Whole Foods for it is a “HAPPY PLACE WITH HAPPIER PEOPLE.”

I have demonstrated the fact of my Love of Whole Foods during a Life’s Journey precisely measured in Service Hours. Love and Happiness are purely subjective experiences. But, the fact of Love and the mental condition called Happiness can be accurately verified by using objective criteria to prove that subjective experience. Some of the tested objective standards used in evaluating the ‘morale’ of any workforce include factors such as 1. Absenteeism, 2. Discipline, 3. Financial Security, 4. Sickness/Personal Injuries at workplace, and 5. Stress at workplace. Using these objective measurements, I would like to claim that I Love Whole Foods for I find Happiness at Whole Foods.

1. ABSENTEEISM: Research clearly demonstrates a direct link between absenteeism and the happiness experienced by a worker at his workplace. I worked about 37, 300 Service Hours( not counting Over Time Hours ) without no recorded unscheduled absence from work. Over the last 17 years of my employment at WFM, I generally maintained a Full-Time Status with variable work schedules  dictated by the demands of the workplace. Apparently, I do not find the Service to be dull, uninteresting, monotonous, tedious, or boring. In fact, some of those characteristics are often associated with the experience called unhappiness. Unhappy workers tend to be either tardy or remain absent or miss scheduled work.

2. DISCIPLINE: Compliance with the Standards and Ethics of workplace is clearly linked with the ‘morale’ of the worker. Unhappy individuals more often face disciplinary action as compared to happy individuals. I will not be able to claim that I Love Whole Foods and I will not be able to assert that I am happy working at Whole Foods if I do not maintain a “Clean Slate”, a record that is free from marks of discredit or dishonor. I welcome any interested party to verify my personal Record of Service kept at WFM and I fully waive my rights to keep such information as private and confidential.

3. Financial Security: In modern economic life, the true index for personal happiness in life is not the figure on the paycheck. Happiness at workplace is not consistent with financial insecurity. The level of personal indebtedness is a true measure of a person’s financial security. I make a living working at WFM without incurring personal debts or taking Credit Card loans. In other words, while being an hourly wage earner who provides labor at WFM without a signed ‘Contract’, I am able to live a life without experiencing financial insecurity.

4. SICKNESS/PERSONAL INJURIES: A number of studies reveal a  relationship between a person’s susceptibility to sickness/ a person’s proneness to injury and the person’s psychological state or condition. Current medical research indicates a connection between mental health and happiness with immune function. Even when the working environment is  clean and healthy, unhappy individuals more often report sickness or sustain injuries at workplace. During the time I spent at WFM, I have not missed even a single day of my work on account of sickness or personal injury.

5. STRESS AT WORKPLACE: Occupational Stress is clearly reflected in the personal habits of the workers. Individuals experiencing stress are often driven to find relaxation by using tobacco, alcohol, or any variety of Chemical Substances and Drugs used for recreational purposes. Secondly, workers often take ‘Time Off’ to escape from the stress experienced at the workplace. I do not use tobacco, alcohol, or any other recreational substance and this fact has been consistently verified by voluntary participation in periodic drug screening tests and during medical examination by physicians over a course of 25 years. Apart from my freedom from Chemical Substances, the fact of not experiencing stress during my employment at WFM can be substantiated by the number of ‘Paid Time Off'(PTO) Hours that I have accumulated. I accumulated about 2, 750 PTO Hours to which the WFM has assigned a cash surrender value. In reality, I have not experienced an urge to pursue a habit for its recreational value. I do not watch movies or visit places for personal amusement. If time permits, I listen to songs composed in Indian languages to preserve my language skills.

All said and done, I am not suggesting that personal motivation as the most important factor to find happiness in employment. Happiness is like the Sunshine. To find happiness, the dude needs an external source of Light that generates happiness. To write and state, “WholeDude Loves Whole Foods”, the dude needs to be in relationship with an external source of happiness. WFM has stated ‘Team Member Happiness’ as its Core Value, an Operating Principle to govern the Employer-Employee relationship at the Company. I am submitting that the WFM Core Value of Caring for Team Member Happiness is truly experienced by me. In conclusion, with a sense of great pleasure I claim that Whole Foods is, “A  HAPPY PLACE WITH HAPPIER PEOPLE.”

I AM POETICALLY   INSPIRED  BY   POEM  “THE RAVEN”  COMPOSED  BY  EDGAR  ALLAN  POE .

Edgar Allan Poe(born. January 19, 1809 – died. October 07, 1849) is one of the most brilliant and original writers in American literature. Poe is part of the American Romantic Movement . His short stories are ingenious and profound. Poe often theorized about the art of writing, as in his essay “The Poetic Principle.”  In his view, a poem deserves its title only in as much as it excites by elevating the soul. I find that Poetic Inspiration, and excitement in his poem ‘The Raven’ :

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore –

While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,

As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.

“Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door –

Only this and nothing more.”

“The Raven” reminds me of ‘The Devil’, ‘The Satan’, ‘The Evil Spirit’ about which a Canaanite woman asked Jesus to show his mercy and drive the demon that took possession of her daughter. This parable about her great faith is  in The Book of Matthew, Chapter 15, verses 21 to 28.

My daughter is suffering terribly from demon possession.” Both man and woman may become the victims of evil spirits or demons which can keep the mind troubled and prevent the joy or happiness obtained by good sleep.

WHOLE IDEALIST – WHOLE REALIST – WHOLE VALUE

Posted on Updated on

WHOLE IDEALIST – WHOLE REALIST – WHOLE VALUE:

WHOLE IDEALIST - WHOLE REALIST - WHOLE VALUE: WHOLE FOODS SENT A LETTER TITLED "VALUE MATTERS" TO ALL THE FELLOW IDEALISTS AND ALSO CALLING ALL THE NATURALISTS AND THE RING LEADERS.
WHOLE IDEALIST – WHOLE REALIST – WHOLE VALUE: WHOLE FOODS SENT A LETTER TITLED “VALUES MATTER” TO ALL THE “FELLOW IDEALISTS” AND  CALLING ALL THE NATURALISTS AND THE RING LEADERS.

I am indeed pleased to share a letter titled “VALUES MATTER” from Whole Foods Market. The letter is an appeal to “All Naturalists & Ringleaders” and at the same time it addresses me as “Fellow Idealist.” The letter describes Whole Foods as “a part of growing consciousness bigger than food.”

WHOLE IDEALIST - WHOLE REALIST - WHOLE VALUE: WHOLE FOODS IS THE PART OF GROWING CONSCIOUSNESS WHICH IS GREATER THAN FOOD.
WHOLE IDEALIST – WHOLE REALIST – WHOLE VALUE: WHOLE FOODS:”WE’RE  PART OF GROWING CONSCIOUSNESS  BIGGER THAN FOOD.”

I am not a “Ringleader.” The only Leaders that I acknowledge are called Cheerleaders. Far from being a leader, I am the chosen “ScapeGoat” of Whole Team Members. I may not be a ‘Whole Naturalist’ for I am still used to the comfort of wearing clothes and conceal my natural body. The term ‘Naturalist’ is defined as a person who believes in or practices naturalism in any form. The term “Naturalism” describes action or thought based on natural desires or instincts, faithful adherence to nature, and realism. A “Naturalist” is expected to apply scientific objectivity and precision in observing and depicting life, without idealizing, imposing value judgments and it demands the quality of action and thought from the use of “Realism.” I am claiming that a “Naturalist” cannot be an “Idealist” for the “Idealist” is not a “Realist.” The term “Ideal” describes a thought or idea that could be perfect, or the conception of something in its most excellent or perfect form. An “Idealist” is a person whose behavior and thoughts are based on ideals, the conception of things as they should be or as the idealistic person wish them to be in his vision or imagination. Whereas a “Realist” is a person concerned with real things and practical matters rather than those that are imaginary or visionary. The doctrine of “Realism” claims that material objects exist in themselves, apart from the mind’s perception or consciousness of those material objects. In “Idealism” the reality exists only in the mind. The difference between an “Idealist” and a “Realist” surface immediately when they assess the “Value” of material objects found in the world. The term “Value” means a fair or proper equivalent in money for something sold or exchanged, a fair market price. But the idea of “Value” is also fundamentally concerned with the worth or the degree of worth, or the quality of having intrinsic worth which may determine the price of the object for sale or exchange. In its letter, Whole Foods claimed that “Values are inseparable from Values.” To that extent, the price for purchase or exchange of a material commodity must be inseparable from its degree of worth or intrinsic worth.

WHOLE IDEALIST - WHOLE REALIST - WHOLE VALUE: EVERYDAY VALUE PRICE IS A CONCEPT THAT INVOLVES SELLING HIGH VALUE PRODUCTS AT VALUES LOWER THAN THEIR REAL MARKET VALUES AND PRICES.
WHOLE IDEALIST – WHOLE REALIST – WHOLE VALUE: EVERYDAY VALUE PRICE IS A CONCEPT THAT INVOLVES SELLING HIGH VALUE PRODUCTS AT VALUES LOWER THAN THEIR REAL MARKET VALUES AND PRICES OF COMPARABLE PRODUCTS SOLD BY OTHER GROCERY STORES.
WHOLE IDEALIST - WHOLE REALIST - WHOLE VALUE: 365 EVERYDAY VALUE MISMATMATCHED SANDWICH CREMES IS A GREAT PRODUCT TO WHICH I ATTACH A GREAT INTRINSIC VALUE. BUT WHOLE FOODS RETAILS THE PRODUCT AT EVERYDAY LOW PRICE, A PRICE LOWER THAN THE REAL MARKET PRICE FOR COMPARABLE PRODUCTS SOLD IN OTHER GROCERY STORES.
WHOLE IDEALIST – WHOLE REALIST – WHOLE VALUE: 365 EVERYDAY VALUE MISMATMATCHED SANDWICH CREMES IS A GREAT PRODUCT TO WHICH I ATTACH A GREAT INTRINSIC VALUE. BUT WHOLE FOODS RETAILS THE PRODUCT AT EVERYDAY LOW PRICE, A PRICE LOWER THAN THE REAL MARKET PRICE FOR COMPARABLE PRODUCTS SOLD IN OTHER GROCERY STORES. WHOLE TEAM MEMBERS CAN GET A BOX BY LIKING AND COMMENTING ON THIS POST.

I went to Whole Foods to verify if the price I pay to purchase a retail product represents its “Ideal Value,” “Real Value,” or “Whole Value.” I met a young man named Charley in the Grocery Department. Charley received me with a great sense of enthusiasm for he recognized me as a “Fellow Idealist.” Charley with a pleasant smile inquired, “Can help you with something?” I told Charley about the letter that I received from Whole Foods and revealed to him that I am indeed a “Whole Idealist” who attaches Ideas and Values to all the material objects found in the world. To explain my credentials as a “Whole Idealist”, I shared with Charley the Ideas and Values that I attach to 365 Everyday Value Mismatched Sandwich Cremes. I told him that it is not a simple, or ordinary cookie that people may purchase at any other grocery store. I told him about all the stories that I had already posted to celebrate the intrinsic beauty and worth of these Mismatched Cremes. Charley, very politely agreed that those are really wonderful cookies. Then I asked him about its “Value.” The Mismatched Cremes are priced at $3.19, and the price for the other two kinds of 365 Sandwich Cremes is just the same. In my estimate, the Mismatched Cremes must fetch a higher price than its first cousins, the other two kinds of sandwich Cremes. For I am a “Whole Idealist”, in my vision, and imagination, the Mismatched Cremes are far superior in their intrinsic value or worth as compared to any other cookies. I can simply hold the Cookie in my hand and explain the concept of Whole Love, Whole Communion, Whole Holiday, Whole Mechanics, Whole Dynamics, Whole Devotion, and Whole Happiness. Charley carefully explained the concept of “Everyday Value” as that of selling “High Value” products at a lower price than their real market price of comparable items sold by other grocery stores. The Value is High, but the Price is Low. I asked Charley if the Everyday Value Price can be called “Ideal” or “Real” Price of the Mismatched Sandwich Cremes for I really see more Value when I compare it with the 365 Everyday Value Sandwich Cremes, and 365 Everyday Value Chocolate Cremes. Charley very patiently explained that the Value of the Mismatched Sandwich Cremes just exists in my mind and exists as an Idea. For it is only my idea, it may not be Real for Reality demands the use of practical considerations and not of vision or imagination. Charley appreciated the fact that I Love the Cookies and suggested that I can pay the Cashier more money( the Whole Value Price in my mental estimate) than the retail price and assured me that Whole Foods would accept my additional payment as a donation. I was very satisfied with Charley’s explanation, his cheerfulness, and very courteous service. I spontaneously wanted to show my sense of appreciation, and asked Charley if I could present him a box of Mismatched Sandwich Cremes to demonstrate my philosophy of Whole Idealism and Whole Value in my actions and behavior. Charley gently refused to accept my offer and in reply told me that he cannot eat Mismatched Sandwich Cremes for they have an Ingredient that is not acceptable to him. Then it is a Whole different Story if I have to write about “Whole Ingredients” and ingredients that people accept or reject when they buy material commodities at Ideal Price, Real Price, Everyday Value Price or Whole Price.

WHOLE TEAM – WHOLE LABOR – WHOLE CONCEPTION – SHAKE AND LIKE

Posted on Updated on

WHOLE TEAM – WHOLE LABOR – WHOLE CONCEPTION – THE BIRTH OF SHAKE AND LIKE TRADITION:

WHOLE TEAM - WHOLE TRADITION - WHOLE CONCEPTION:AT WHOLE FOODS MARKET, ANN ARBOR, ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 21, 2014, DURING THE ALL-STORE TEAM MEETING(ASTM), THE BIRTH OF A NEW TEAM TRADITION WAS ANNOUNCED.
WHOLE TEAM – WHOLE LABOR – WHOLE CONCEPTION:THE BIRTH OF SHAKE AND LIKE TRADITION. AT WHOLE FOODS MARKET, ANN ARBOR, ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 21, 2014, DURING THE ALL-STORE TEAM MEETING(ASTM), THE BIRTH OF A NEW TEAM TRADITION WAS ANNOUNCED.

The term “LABOR” refers to physical or mental exertion to accomplish a specific task or the work done by physical exertion. The word ‘Labor’ is also applied to all wage-earning workers as a group and distinguishes them from a group or class called  Capitalist or Management. The work accomplished by the workers for wages is described as ‘LABOR’. But no Capitalist or no kind of ‘Management’ has any exclusive right to the use of Language. In Medicine, the term “LABOR” is defined  as the process or period of childbirth, parturition; especially the muscular contractions of giving birth. In any case, the term ‘Labor’ implies physical work done to deliver a product or provide a service, or accomplish a task that involves the manual effort. In Medicine, Labor is preceded by an act called as ‘Conception’. The fact of Labor is the confirmation of the fact of ‘Conception’. There is no Labor unless the person had conceived. In my view, the ‘Capitalist’ is the ‘Father’ or the provider of the ‘Originating Seed’ that causes an incident called ‘Conception’ which further leads to Labor and Delivery by the use of muscular contractions.The term ‘Conception’ describes the act of conceiving, such as conceiving an embryo, or the beginning of some process, chain of events, or of conceiving mentally, the formulation of a new and original idea or concept . I am using the phrase “Whole Conception” to contrast my original idea with the Biblical concept known as “IMMACULATE CONCEPTION.” I want to submit with humility that my mind has simply conceived an idea after it is impregnated by an external stimulus, and that I was not fully aware or conscious when the event called ‘Conception’ took place. The term ‘Tradition’ refers to the handing down of Customs from generation to generation so as to make it a long-established practice. At Whole Foods Market, Ann Arbor, on Thursday, August 21, 2014, at the All-Store Team Meeting(ASTM), the birth of a new ‘Team’ tradition was announced. The idea of ‘Team’ describes a group of people working together in a coordinated effort in striving for a common goal. This concept of ‘TEAM’ does not include a group of laborers or wage-earning workers who come together to form an ‘Association’ or Union’ to promote and protect the welfare, interests, and rights of its members primarily by collective bargaining. Even if there is no ‘Association’, or ‘Union’ for the purposes of collective bargaining, the concept of “TEAM” is still useful at any workplace where a group of wage-earners work together to accomplish specific, or assigned tasks. From the idea of ‘Team’ the phrase called ‘Teamwork’ is derived and it describes joint action by a group of people in which individual interests are subordinated to promote group unity and efficiency. I coined the phrase “Whole Team” to give due credit and recognition to the “ORIGINATOR” who provided the economic stimulus to generate activity that demands the employment of a large group of wage-earners who labor to deliver the product called commodity or merchandise. The existence of ‘Whole Team’ is preceded by an act that can be named ‘Whole Conception’.

WHOLE MISSION – WHOLE VALUES –  WHOLE CONCEPTION – THE BIRTH OF SHAKE AND LIKE TRADITION:

WHOLE TEAM - WHOLE TRADITION - WHOLE CONCEPTION: I CONCEIVED A NEW AND ORIGINAL IDEA AND I COMPARE MY ACT OF MENTAL CONCEPTION TO THAT OF "IMMACULATE CONCEPTION" DESCRIBED IN THE NEW TESTAMENT BOOKS OF HOLY BIBLE. THE ORIGINATING SEED FOR MY MENTAL CONCEPTION IS DERIVED FROM THE BOOK, "CONSCIOUS CAPITALISM" SOLD AT WHOLE FOODS MARKET, ANN ARBOR.
WHOLE TEAM – WHOLE LABOR – WHOLE CONCEPTION:THE BIRTH OF SHAKE AND LIKE TRADITION. THE COILED ARROW THAT APPEARS ON THE COVER PAGE OF “CONSCIOUS CAPITALISM” IS THE “FATHER” OF THE “CHILD” I CONCEIVED. I CONCEIVED A NEW AND ORIGINAL IDEA AND I COMPARE MY ACT OF MENTAL CONCEPTION TO THAT OF “IMMACULATE CONCEPTION” DESCRIBED IN THE NEW TESTAMENT BOOKS OF HOLY BIBLE. THE ORIGINATING SEED FOR MY MENTAL CONCEPTION IS DERIVED FROM THE BOOK, “CONSCIOUS CAPITALISM” SOLD AT WHOLE FOODS MARKET, ANN ARBOR. WHEN THE SEED FOUND ITS WAY INTO MY MIND, I WAS NOT CONSCIOUS OR AWARE OF THAT STIMULUS.

I conceived a new, and original idea and I respectfully compare my act of mental conception to that of “IMMACULATE CONCEPTION” described in The New Testament Books of Holy Bible. The originating seed for my mental conception is derived from the book “CONSCIOUS CAPITALISM” sold at Whole Foods Market, Ann Arbor. The image of a coiled Arrow that appears on the cover page of “Conscious Capitalism” is the “Father” of my “Child.” When the “Seed” found its way into my mind, I was not “Conscious” or aware of that stimulus. John Mackey is the author of the book and he is the CO-CEO of Whole Foods Market Company. The Company adheres to certain “CORE VALUES”( I describe them as “WHOLE VALUES”) and its Business Mission includes several new concepts apart from “Promoting Team Member Happiness and Excellence” and “Win – Win Partnerships with its Stakeholders” and the Company values its employees and treats them as partners or stakeholders. Whole Foods has distinguished itself from all other US Corporations by using its “Whole Values” to accomplish its “Whole Mission” and created a new trend in business philosophy that could be named “Whole Capitalism.”

WHOLE TEAM - WHOLE TRADITION - WHOLE CONCEPTION: WHOLE FOODS MARKET IS FOUNDED ON PRINCIPLES CALLED "CONSCIOUS CAPITALISM" AND ITS BUSINESS MISSION IS BASED UPON "CORE VALUES." I AM USING THE PHRASE "WHOLE MISSION" TO INCLUDE THE BUSINESS PRACTICES AND THE PHILOSOPHY IN A NEW UNIFYING TERM.

WHOLE FOODS MARKET IS FOUNDED ON PRINCIPLES CALLED “CONSCIOUS CAPITALISM” AND ITS BUSINESS MISSION IS BASED UPON “CORE VALUES.” I AM USING THE PHRASE “WHOLE MISSION” TO INCLUDE THE BUSINESS PRACTICES AND THE PHILOSOPHY IN A NEW UNIFYING TERM. WHOLE VALUES + WHOLE MISSION = WHOLE CAPITALISM.

I am using the term “WHOLE MISSION” as a new phrase to bring full unity between the “CORE VALUES” and the business practices of “CONSCIOUS CAPITALISM.” I am struck by this passion to promote Team Member Happiness and the drive to create partnerships with both suppliers and employees. It stimulated me to come up with a group practice that would provide ‘Reinforcement’ to substantially accomplish the task of promoting Team Member Happiness. In Psychology, ‘reinforcement’ refers to any action that reinforces a response and increases the probability of a response to stimulus. The single, most important factor that provides job satisfaction at a workplace is that of receiving appreciation in recognition of the work performed. In the context of Teamwork, there is a need for giving appreciation to individual Team Members in due recognition of their individual contributions even while the Team works to accomplish a collective mission fully subordinating their individual interests. I have visualized a simple practice that would let individual Team Members to experience Happiness while they take the initiative to recognize their own individual contributions and claim that they are pleased with the results.

The idea of using the “THUMBS UP” sign is very popular and it instantly communicates that the person is pleased, and enjoyed the actions that preceded the action of giving the “THUMBS UP” sign.

Hand movements are used to symbolize the tasks performed to maintain Life through work or labor. Shake Hands is a popular tradition that involves the act of clasping each other’s hands as a token of agreement or friendship. Handshake is a traditional form of parting and greeting. To promote Team Member Happiness, I evolved a novel form of Handshake that will not involve clasping each other’s hands.

WHOLE PRACTICE – WHOLE TRADITION – WHOLE HAPPINESS – THE BIRTH OF SHAKE AND LIKE TRADITION:

I introduced the ‘Whole Tradition’ called “SHAKE AND LIKE” at Whole Foods Market during their All-Store Team Meeting held on Thursday, August 21, 2014. The participating Team Members form a wide circle and each person uses the right hand like in a traditional Handshake but will not grasp the hand of any other Team Member. The participating Team Member also uses his/her left hand to give the “THUMBS UP” sign. The “SHAKE AND LIKE” action involves the moving of right hand up and down with short, and quick movements in the air for five times while the left hand is held in the ‘thumbs up’ position. On the sixth move, the entire participating Team Members will jump up into the air with both hands going upwards in a show of joy and pleasure at the concluding move of the “SHAKE AND LIKE” action. The philosophy of “SHAKE AND LIKE” can be stated as “I LABOR, AND I LIKE.” The action called “Shake and Like” is that of each participant acknowledging their own individual work or Labor and contribution using the right hand movements up and down in the air and simultaneously being pleased with that work or Labor and contribution using the ‘thumbs up’ sign. When this action is performed as a group, it reinforces the idea of giving appreciation for contributing to the collective work on an individual basis. This concept of “SHAKE AND LIKE” has received  the support from all of our Team Members and they participate in the action with great enthusiasm. If this tradition finds wider usage among Team Members or workers in the US and the rest of the world, it could become the most cost-effective tool to practice the idea of employees being treated as partners and stakeholders at any corporate entity. “Shake and Like” means “I Labor  and I Like” and hopefully it will be the new ‘Mantra’ to create Job Satisfaction and Happiness at all Workplaces. But, all said and done, at any workplace, the rules, the code of conduct for the group of laborers is decided by the Capitalist or Management and the laborers may have no legal right to institute a traditional practice using their own initiative or imagination. Having conceded the limitations for creating new workplace traditions, I am still optimistic that new traditions will come into existence if they are founded on valid and verified principles of Human Psychology.

WHOLE LANGUAGE – WHOLE LINGUISTICS – WHOLE VOCABULARY

SPIRITUALITY SCIENCE – WHOLE LINGUISTICS – WHOLE LANGUAGE:

SPIRITUALITY SCIENCE - WHOLE LINGUISTICS - WHOLE LANGUAGE:  LINGUISTICS IS DESCRIBED AS THE SCIENCE OF HUMAN LANGUAGE. I AM USING THE PHRASE WHOLE LINGUISTICS TO DESCRIBE THREE ENTITIES; 1. A LANGUAGE USER, 2. A LANGUAGE INTERPRETER, AND 3. A LANGUAGE CREATOR.

Language is the means by which human beings, as members of a social group and participants in its culture, communicate. Language is the peculiar possession of human beings. Human Speech(spoken and written) is the criteria by which we can easily recognize the difference that exists between man and other species. In this article I want to inform my readers that there is a requirement to develop what I name as “Whole Linguistics”, and “Whole Language” to understand the nature of Human Life and Human Existence.

SPIRITUALITY SCIENCE - WHOLE LINGUISTICS - WHOLE LANGUAGE: LANGUAGE IS DEFINED AS A SYSTEM OF VOCAL SOUNDS AND COMBINATION OF SUCH SOUNDS TO WHICH MEANING IS ATTRIBUTED, USED FOR THE EXPRESSION OR COMMUNICATION OF THOUGHTS AND FOR SHARING INFORMATION. TO EXPLAIN AND ACCOUNT FOR HUMAN LIFE AND HUMAN EXISTENCE THERE IS A NEED FOR "WHOLE LINGUISTICS", AND "WHOLE LANGUAGE."

TO EXPLAIN AND ACCOUNT FOR HUMAN LIFE AND HUMAN EXISTENCE THERE IS A NEED FOR “WHOLE LINGUISTICS”, AND “WHOLE LANGUAGE.”

I want to define “Whole Language” as the particular form or manner of selecting and combining words characteristic of a “Whole Man”, “Whole Person”, or “Whole Dude.” It is a style of expression in words to explain and account for Human Life and Human Existence which does not depend upon the ability to attach meanings to the words and languages man uses. The structure and properties of human language do not formulate the basis for man’s biological existence. Linguistics which is described as the Science of Language includes phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics. Linguistics is sometimes subdivided into Descriptive, Historical, Comparative, Theoretical, Applied, and Geographical Linguistics. Since Linguistics is concerned with Language it has to include the study of vocalized human speech, human writing, human reading, and human sensory perception of sounds and their interpretation. In proposing to use the phrase “Whole Linguistics”, I am visualizing the existence of three entities, 1. A Language User, 2. A Language Interpreter, and 3. A Language Creator. It introduces a concept about the Creative Beginning of man and his Language.

SPIRITUALITY SCIENCE - WHOLE LINGUISTICS - WHOLE LANGUAGE:  BERTRAND RUSSELL DEVELOPED THE SYSTEM OF LANGUAGE ANALYSIS CALLED "LOGICAL ATOMISM." IN HIS OPINION, LANGUAGE CAN BE ANALYZED IN TERMS OF AGGREGATES OF FIXED, IRREDUCIBLE UNITS OR ELEMENTS. HOW ABOUT LIFE AND EXISTENCE????
SPIRITUALITY SCIENCE – WHOLE LINGUISTICS – WHOLE LANGUAGE: BERTRAND RUSSELL DEVELOPED THE SYSTEM OF LANGUAGE ANALYSIS CALLED “LOGICAL ATOMISM.” IN HIS OPINION, LANGUAGE CAN BE ANALYZED IN TERMS OF AGGREGATES OF FIXED, IRREDUCIBLE UNITS OR ELEMENTS. HOW ABOUT LIFE AND EXISTENCE????

Dr. Bertrand Russell developed the system of Language Analysis called “Logical Atomism.” In his opinion, Language can be analyzed in terms of fixed, irreducible units or elements or an “Atom” of Language. Russell thinks that there can be a perfect one-to-one correspondence existing between an “Atom of Language”(an “Atomic Proposition”) and an “Atomic Fact.” An Atomic Proposition is a term that asserts that a certain thing has a certain quality. An Atomic Fact is the simplest kind of fact and consists in the possession of a certain quality by some specific individual thing. According to Russell, for Language to mirror reality it can be proposed that the world is composed of facts that are utterly simple and comprehensible. He used ‘Atomic Propositions’ as the building blocks from which logical connectives, the more complex “Molecular Propositions” are constructed. To apply Russell’s Theory of “Logical Atomism” to explain the nature of Human Life and Human Existence, I encounter several problems. What is that ‘Atomic Proposition’, or ‘Atomic Fact’ that can describe man as a specific, individual thing? How is the Identity of Human Individual is established in multicellular human organism? Who is that specific, individual thing for whose benefit all the trillions of individual, living cells exist? If man is known as a specific, individual thing, how do these trillions of individual cells recognize his Identity? Russell demands that concepts must be clarified in both everyday and scientific Language. In his view, all genuine knowledge about man and nature can be expressed in a single Language common to all the Sciences. Semantics is the branch of Linguistics concerned with the nature, the structure and the development and changes of the meanings of speech forms or with contextual meaning. I want to use the phrase “Whole Semantics” to describe the relationship between the Language User who uses words, phrases, concepts, feelings, (and etc., associated with them) and the mind of the Language Interpreter whom I identify as “Whole Person”, “Whole Man”, or “Whole Dude.” By combining words, by coining new phrases, I am able to describe an original term whose meaning or explanation could be missing if the original term is used as such. For example, by using the phrase ‘Whole Person, ‘Whole Man’, or ‘Whole Dude’ I will be able to account for all the dimensions of Human Life, and Human Existence. The term ‘man’ when used alone  could be interpreted by each reader in  slightly differing manners based upon their individual mental makeups. By using the phrase such as ‘Whole Man’, I am alerting the reader to interpret its meaning considering the various possibilities, the various dimensions to life such as a physical dimension( age, sex, color, race, ethnicity, and country of origin), a mental dimension described by his thoughts and feelings, a social dimension described by the language he uses, his religion, his social position, education, occupation, and  his culture, his moral dimension that includes his perceptions about right and wrong, his spiritual dimension that may account for his existence as a created being, one of its own kind, and distinctive that makes him an Individual with Individuality.

WHOLE VOCABULARY – WHOLE LINGUISTICS – WHOLE LANGUAGE:

Language represents a very complex series of events. These events take place in many planes of experience; 1. Physical(the sound waves), 2. Chemical( the body Chemistry), 3. Physiological(the movements of nerve impulses and of the various muscles and structures involved in articulation or generation of sounds), 4. Psychological(the reaction to stimuli), 5. General Cultural(the situation of the speaker in respect to the cultural system of his society), 6. Linguistic( the Language being spoken), and 7. Semantic( its meaning). Vocabulary is a list of words and often phrases, abbreviations, inflectional forms, and etc., arranged in alphabetical order and defined as in a dictionary or glossary. I would use the phrase “Whole Vocabulary” to explain the concept that the human body does not use Human Language to perform its functions at the level of individual cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems that comprise the human body. Human organism interacts with its constituent cells, tissues, and organs all the time using chemical molecules to send signals.

To understand the Language that human body uses to perform its myriad living functions, we need to learn about  chemical molecules that act as major communicators. The Cyclic Adenosine Monophosphate(cAMP) is a major communicator molecule in cells. cAMP controls many important functions in the cell including the ability of the cell to generate electrical impulses. It is often called “Second Messenger” and it activates Inactive Protein Kinase, and the Active Protein Kinase then triggers responses of target cells or structures by activating enzymes, stimulating cellular secretion, opening ion channels, and etc., Cyclic Monophosphate  mononucleotide of Adenosine or cAMP is formed from Adenosine Triphosphate or ATP by the catalytic action of the enzyme Adenylyl Cyclase. cAMP is responsible for the intracellular mediation of hormonal effects on various cellular processes such as lipid metabolism, membrane transport and cell proliferation.

SPIRITUALITY SCIENCE – WHOLE LINGUISTICS – WHOLE LANGUAGE: IN THE ENTIRE HUMAN VOCABULARY THERE IS NO WORD OR PHRASE THAT MAN CAN USE TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE CELLS OF HIS OWN BODY.

I am stating that I cannot issue verbal commands to my human body and direct it to perform according to my choice or desires. In the entire human Vocabulary there is no word or phrase that man can use to communicate with the cells, tissues, and organs of his own body. Language can be used to describe living functions such as ‘Metabolism’ but Life and Existence is not about the ability to attach meanings to words or the ability called Language Arts. Russell held the view that it is possible to infer something about the world from the Language in which it is correctly described. He further directed that Language must be used to state its minimum requirements and avoid the use of descriptive phrases which may postulate the existence of objects. Russell finds it very easy and convenient to formulate his opinion and conclude that a ‘Proposition’ is a picture of the facts that it asserts and must have in a sense the same structure. He stressed the importance of similarity of structure as a criterion in inferring causal relationships. He endorsed the application of rationality to all aspects of thought and Language. Humans have the distinctive ability to use Language and yet there is no similarity of structure in the Language used for human communication and the structure of chemical molecules involved in communications between cells, tissues, and organs of his own body. To account for Human Life and Human Existence, I need to overcome the linguistic barriers placed by Russell. To establish the existence of man as a ‘speaking animal’, I would use the concept of ‘Whole Devotion’, a valid method of inquiry that can be guided and controlled by ‘Love’ which acts as the Fundamental Force that operates Human Life and Human Existence and makes it a Subjective and Objective Reality that can be experienced. In times of crisis, when man finds challenges to his life and existence, man may not be able to make use of his knowledge and wisdom and effectively communicate with his body to alter or correct the problems of his structural and functional organization. However, human Language can be used for a system of communication called ‘PRAYER’ and the hope that the communication called ‘Prayer’ will be received gives man the choice to survive tough times with a sense of peace and tranquility which could provide comfort and reassurance.
