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.

(March 2018) (PDF)

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.”

The Adoration of Whole Angel, #WholeAngel  #WHOLEANGEL is in celebration of perfect coming together of Idealism and Naturalism in Art, Food, and Life to shape the Realism of Jennifer Lopez’s appearance as “Queen of the Angels” in a City named Los Angeles, Spanish. Reina de los Angeles, which literally means “Queen of the Angels.” Idealism emphasizes the primacy of Spirit or Consciousness in viewing the World. In an Idealist’s perception,  reality of objects resides in the mind’s perception of the objects. Naturalism is the belief that the natural World is all that exists and that there is no supernatural or spiritual creation. Realism represents the theory that individual things exist independently of the mind’s perception of them, In a Realist’s perception, objects exist in themselves apart from the mind’s consciousness of them. The word ‘Reality’ means the fact of or quality of being real or being true to life. In the view of an Idealist, the beauty of Jennifer Lopez simply exists in the eye of the beholder. In the view of a Realist, Jennifer really exists as a beautiful object in the natural world that is perceived. I coined the term Whole Angel, #WholeAngel, #WHOLEANGEL blending the percpetions of Idealist and Realist to describe Jennifer Lopez as a “Natural Queen of the Angels” in a City that really exists with that particular name.

The word ‘Angel’ is derived from Greek. ‘ANGELOS’ which means a ‘Messenger’. Scripture describes ‘Angels’ as supernatural, heavenly beings with bodily form and human appearance. They are of various ranks and endowments but only one Angel called “MICHAEL” is  “ARCHANGEL.” In this context, I would like to mention that the ‘Whole Team’ has already designated a Whole Team Member as our ‘Archangel’. Good Angels assist, protect and deliver God’s people. They often guide God’s children. The Scriptures often speak of Angels as Messengers of God. The City of Los Angeles derives its name from Spanish. Reina de los Angeles which literally means “Queen of the Angels.”

WHOLE ANGEL – #WHOLEANGEL – #WholeAngel –  QUEEN OF THE ANGELS – WHOLE MESSAGE :

WHOLE TEAM  -  WHOLE  MESSENGER  -  WHOLE  ANGEL  :
WHOLE TEAM – WHOLE MESSENGER – WHOLE ANGEL : ON  SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 22 , 2015, JENNIFER  LOPEZ  DELIVERED  A  WHOLE  MESSAGE  ABOUT  WHOLE  IDEALISM,  AND  WHOLE  NATURALISM  THAT  DRIVES  AND  INSPIRES  THE  WHOLE  TEAM .

On Sunday, February 22, 2015, the High Priest of the Whole Team had communicated with two of the Whole Team Members giving directions to perform a high priority task. However, his direct communication had failed and both the Whole Team Members forgot about that important task. Fortunately, Miracles do happen. On that day, one of the Whole Team Members while taking a lunch break, turned on the television while ABC was airing the “Red Carpet Arrivals” at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Just by either unknown Divine Plan or fortunate coincidence, Ms. Jennifer Lopez arrived on the Red Carpet instantly revealing the ‘Message’ to which the High Priest attached a very great importance. The Whole Team Member got immediately connected to the instructions given by the High Priest and could complete the task to uplift the Whole Team from a possible failure in work performance. For Jennifer Lopez delivered the ‘Whole Message’ by simply appearing on the television screen, an angelic appearance that inspires the ideals of Whole Naturalism, the Whole Team now regards her as a ‘Whole Angel'(#WholeAngel).

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.

WHOLE  TEAM  -  WHOLE  ASSIGNMENT  - #EveningInParis :  EVENING  IN  PARIS  IS  A  SHORT  STORY  INSPIRED  BY  EDGAR  ALLAN  POE'S  POEM  "THE  RAVEN."

WHOLE TEAM – WHOLE ASSIGNMENT – #EveningInParis : EVENING IN PARIS IS A SHORT STORY  POETICALLY  INSPIRED  BY  EDGAR  ALLAN  POE’S  POEM “THE RAVEN.” IT  IS  ABOUT THE  DEMON  THAT  TOOK  POSSESSION  OF  THE  YOUNG  DAUGHTER  OF   THIS CANAANITE  WOMAN  WHO  IS  PLEADING  JESUS  TO  SHOW  HIS  MERCY .

The New Testament Book of Matthew, Chapter 15, verse# 22 : “LORD, Son of David, have mercy on me! 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. Man or woman need the help of a guardian angel to fight the demon that may trouble their hearts.

WHOLE FOODS – WHOLE IDEALISM vs WHOLE PRAGMATISM

Posted on Updated on

WHOLE FOOD – WHOLE IDEALISM vs WHOLE PRAGMATISM:

In Business Practices, A Penny of Pragmatism is Better than a Pound of Idealism. As the saying goes, “One Man’s Meat is another Man’s Poison.” Nothing can be claimed to be ‘HEALTHY’ until man experiences the consequences of the food he consumes.

WHOLE FOOD - WHOLE IDEALISM vs WHOLE PRAGMATISM: THIS IS A PRAGMATIC INQUIRY ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN A CONSUMER OF FOOD, THE FOOD RETAILER AND THE PHENOMENA OF HEALTHY LIVING.
WHOLE FOOD – WHOLE IDEALISM vs WHOLE PRAGMATISM: THIS IS A PRAGMATIC INQUIRY ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN A CONSUMER OF FOOD, THE FOOD RETAILER AND THE PHENOMENA OF HEALTHY LIVING.

This article makes a pragmatic inquiry about the relationship between a consumer of food, the food retailer, and the phenomenon of healthy living.

WHOLE FOOD - WHOLE IDEALISM vs WHOLE PRAGMATISM : WHOLE FOODS LAUNCHED A NATIONAL ADVERTISEMENT CAMPAIGN INTRODUCING THE CONCEPT OF "IDEALISM" IN EATING. PRAGMATISM DEMANDS KNOWING ACTIONS THROUGH THE EXPERIENCE OF CONSEQUENCES. THIS PHOTO IMAGE MAY SUGGEST THAT PREGNANCY IS THE CONSEQUENCE OF A NATURALIST LIFESTYLE WHICH INCLUDES THE PRINCIPLES OF IDEALISM IN EATING.

PRAGMATISM DEMANDS KNOWING ACTIONS THROUGH THE EXPERIENCE OF CONSEQUENCES. THIS PHOTO IMAGE MAY SUGGEST THAT PREGNANCY IS THE CONSEQUENCE OF A NATURALIST LIFESTYLE WHICH INCLUDES THE PRINCIPLES OF IDEALISM IN EATING OR EATING LIKE AN IDEALIST.

Whole Foods only sells products that are “natural” which the Company defines as minimally processed foods free of hydrogenated fats as well as artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, and preservatives. Apart from selling fresh conventional and ‘organic’ fruits and vegetables, it offers prepared foods with “healthy” ingredients and clear labeling. Whole Foods specializes in products produced or grown locally, grass-fed meats, organic ‘free-range’ chicken, just-caught seafood and a variety of bakery items. ‘HEALTH’ magazine published by TIME Inc. Network had asked five nutritionists and a pediatrician to review 35 largest food retailers across the country and announced ‘America’s Healthiest Grocery Stores.” In her opinion, Ms. Kate Geagan, MS, RD, a nutrition consultant, Park City, Utah speaking about Whole Foods stated: “It’s the Rolls Royce of healthy eating.”  Dr. Alan Greene, MD, Clinical Professor of Pediatrics, Stanford University School of Medicine, Palo Alto, California, the chief panelist of HEALTH magazine’s study, confirmed that “Whole Foods has the Whole Package.” In his expert opinion about Whole Foods and its relationship to health of people, Dr. Greene claims, “The Store celebrates great, healthy food from start to finish.” It must be clearly recognized that Dr. Greene and his panel will not be able to publish their findings in any Medical or Science Journal. Such a report that grades grocery stores in terms of health value will be outright rejected for there is no observational evidence to support the claim. To make a cause and effect relationship between a food retailer and the health of a food consumer, the supporting evidence can only come not by simply looking at the products available for purchase at a given store but by making proper health assessments of the consumers over a period of time.  Having won this endorsement from Health magazine and its panelists, Whole Foods has registered the phrase “America’s Healthiest Grocery Store” as its TradeMark. In my view, the conclusions of the study conducted by HEALTH magazine lack the validity or objectivity of Science. The methodology used by the six panelists of HEALTH magazine does not involve measurement of objective criteria for assessment of health and there is no experimental verification and validation of their findings. This hypothesis, this mental concept of “America’s Healthiest Grocery Store” must be tested, verified, and be validated without using the subjective experiences of the investigators. I am stating that for this “HEALTH” evaluation, data must be collected with precision, accuracy, and consistency after establishing objective standards for the observations. For the reasons that I mentioned, the study and the findings of the expert panel sponsored by HEALTH magazine have utterly failed to demonstrate a relationship between their claim and the observational evidence. Their conclusions about “America’s Healthiest Grocery Stores” would be mere conjecture, surmise, guesswork, or wishful thinking, or amounts to speculation for their judgment or estimate is not supported by actual knowledge or enough facts for certainty that concern the central issue of the health condition of people who consume food sold by the food retailers that are investigated.

WHOLE FOOD - WHOLE IDEALISM vs WHOLE PRAGMATISM : TO MAKE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN FOOD THAT MAN CONSUMES AND THE PHENOMENA OF HEALTHY LIVING, WE NEED TO DEFINE THE WORD "FOOD."
WHOLE FOOD – WHOLE IDEALISM vs WHOLE PRAGMATISM : TO MAKE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN FOOD THAT MAN CONSUMES AND THE PHENOMENA OF HEALTHY LIVING, WE NEED TO DEFINE THE WORD “FOOD”, “HEALTH”, AND “LIFE..”

While speaking about the relationship between food and life, it will be important to recognize the five dimensions of Life, namely; 1. the Physical dimension, 2. the Mental dimension, 3. the Social dimension, 4. the Moral dimension, and 5. the Spiritual dimension, which together constitute “Whole Life.” To define the term “Whole Food”, I would like to relate food to the five dimensions of “Whole Life.” My definition of “Whole Food” is as follows:

1. The substance that provides nourishment to maintain and sustain the living functions and thereby protects the Physical well-being of man,

2. The substance that provides the experience of mental contentment, and psychological satisfaction and thereby supports man’s Mental well-being,

3. The substance that provides the stimulus for social interactions, social relationships, and social bonding and thereby supports man’s Social well-being,

4. The substance that provides the ability to man to express his moral and ethical principles in making choices for his living and thereby contributes to man’s Moral well-being, and

5. The substance that provides the spiritual basis for man’s relationship with Divine Providence and thereby preserves man’s Spiritual well-being.

I would be happy if Whole Foods Market defines the term “FOOD” while it claims to be “America’s Healthiest Grocery Store.”

WHOLE FOOD - WHOLE IDEALISM vs PRAGMATISM : WHOLE FOODS LAUNCHED A VERY EXPENSIVE ADVERTISEMENT CAMPAIGN TO PROMOTE ITS VISION, ITS PHILOSOPHY OF IDEALISM IN EATING, AND TO CALL ITSELF AS "AMERICA'S HEALTHIEST GROCERY STORE."

STILL, A FIRM RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN “YUMMY” FOOD AND HEALTHY LIVING HAS TO BE PRESENTED USING DATA THAT CAN BE VALIDATED AFTER VERIFICATION. THERE IS NO ESTABLISHED SCIENTIFIC DOCTRINE THAT UPHOLDS THE “VALUES” THAT MATTER IN THE IDEALISTIC VISION OF WHOLE FOODS.

Whole Foods has launched a major national advertisement campaign to boost its brand name and highlight its groundbreaking quality standards. Whole Foods defined the campaign by its “VALUES MATTER ANTHEM.” Whole Foods is specifically asking people to know from where food comes from, what happens to food in its transit, trusting the source of food, fair treatment of people, animals, and places from where food comes from, the way food is grown, raised, or caught, and for a greater good that goes beyond selling food. It may be noted that in Science, if a thing is said to be true, Science explains as to why it is true. For example, as per the quality standards established by Whole Foods, its organic Quinoa could be healthy and nutritious. But, Cancer research indicates that dietary ‘polyamines’ are very important and the polyamine compounds such as spermine, spermidine, and putrescine found in food like Quinoa, Corn, or Grapefruit may accelerate the spread of Cancer. There is a demand to disclose the dietary ‘polyamine’ content of all kinds of foods and to include the information in the Nutrition Facts. As the saying goes, “One Man’s Meat is another Man’s Poison.”

VALUES MATTER ANTHEM

Whole Foods is buying TV advertisements during network and cable shows such as The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, The Saturday Night Live Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live Show, ‘SCANDAL’, ‘MODERN FAMILY’, Thursday Night Football, and others. Whole Foods has shown a strong commitment to sustainable agriculture, supporting organic farmers, growers, its vendors, its suppliers, and the environment. Whole Foods has a preference to market products that are considered to be environmentally friendly and ecologically responsible. Whole Foods has formulated strictest quality standards for all the products that it sells and has evolved its guidelines for Animal Compassion, Sustainable Seafood, and Produce Production standards. While Whole Foods is engaged in promoting its idea or vision of raising the level of Food Consciousness, I would like to introduce to my readers the concept of ‘PRAGMATISM’.

WHOLE FOOD - WHOLE IDEALISM vs PRAGMATISM : DR WILLIAM JAMES(1842 - 1910), PSYCHOLOGIST AND PHILOSOPHER WHO TEACHED AT HARVARD UNIVERSITY. HE STATED THAT THE TRUTH OF A PROPOSITION IS JUDGED BY ITS PRACTICAL OUTCOME.

William James is best known for his books, Principles of Psychology(1890), and Pragmatism(1907). Pragmatism is a method of philosophy in which the truth of a proposition is measured by its correspondence with experimental results and by its practical outcome. Pragmatism finds merit in ideas, policies, and proposals by using criteria such as  their usefulness, workability, and practicality. Pragmatism stresses the priority of action over doctrine. Pragmatism places value on ‘experience’ and not upon ‘fixed principles’. For a Pragmatist, the Value of an Idea is borrowed from its Meaning and its consequences. Pragmatist derives truth by using the principle of validation which involves an investigation of the proper methods of procedure. Pragmatism claims that the fact of knowing includes information as to how the fact is known. For the meaning and the truth of any idea are functions of its practical outcome, all principles are to be regarded as working hypotheses and the principles may be changed as new information based upon experience becomes available. Thus pragmatists hold that truth is modified as discoveries are made and truth is relative to time and place and the purpose of inquiry. In the last few decades, medical experts have changed their opinions several times while discussing the relationship between human nutrition and health or well-being. Pragmatism prefers to determine the meaning and the truth of all concepts by their practical consequences. William James stated, “True ideas are those we can assimilate, validate, corroborate, and verify.” For James, true ideas are useful “leadings”, they lead through experience in ways that provide consistency, orderliness, and predictability. Scientific knowledge provides the knowledge to state something is true by sharing the reason why it is true.

WHOLE FOOD - WHOLE IDEALISM vs PRAGMATISM: A PRAGMATIST WOULD TEND TO DEMAND THAT WHOLE FOODS MUST DEFINE THE TERMS LIKE FOOD AND LIFE IF IT WANTS TO CLAIM TO BE AMERICA'S HEALTHIEST GROCERY STORE.

The word ‘pragmatic’ (Latin. pragmaticus means skilled in business or law; Greek. pragmatikos, pragma means business) is concerned with actual practice, everyday affairs, being practical and etc., and hence not with dogma, doctrine, or speculation. In Linguistics, the branch called ‘Pragmatics’ is concerned with meaning in context, or the meaning of sentences in terms of the speaker’s intentions in using them. I would invite my readers to join in this conversation and I submit that the truth of an idea(“Healthiest Grocery Store”), or action(“Eat like an Idealist”) should be judged in terms of its outcome in practical human experience.
