What is Team Work

Working as part of a group in which there is a shared goal and to achieve this different members of the team take on different roles.
Work team takes personal responsibility for their performance and quality and seeks opportunities to make valued contributions to the team's performance and quality goals.

 

Tuesday August 10th 2004

Every season they’re always somebody…
They’re always somebody who thinks they know more than everybody else… Always blaming everything around them for there loses. Always wanting to give opinions and criticize other peoples but never about them self. Why can’t I have a smooth running team? They’re always somebody. I am going to have to fix this problem.
Responsibility
To be entrusted with or assigned a duty or charge. In many instances responsibility is assumed, appropriate with one's duties. Responsibility is distinct from accountability. A supervisor can assign responsibility but cannot give away his or her accountability: the manager is ultimately responsible. To be accountable for ones actions. When you accept the results of something that you've done, you've taken responsibility for your actions, even if it's not the result you expected - once you've taken responsibility for your life, duties or whatever, you could do something about it. I am going to overt disaster. You are able to choose between what is right and what is wrong. You are responsible for your behavior and you accept the consequences of you behavior. You can be trusted. You are reliable.

The big disappointment
Lets say you see somebody and you think, that person is something special, you like that person you find that person fascinating, interesting, nice looking, great personality and so on. So the days go bye and you find yourself enjoying the company of that person when you get a chance to see that person. This is not being judgmental; this is preference of company right? But what if one day that person does something that you think is demeaning of them selves? And because of it you now see that person as a dip-shit? Is this being judgmental? There is this girl I was fond of. To me, she was a good one, until she went and did something real stupid. Now I don’t like her even though her quality is still the same, she now appears different to me because of that one thing she did that was real stupid. Am I wrong for not liking her anymore like used to? I used to like her until she went and gave up her dignity for nothing but stupidity. I think she noticed my disinterest in her because now she keeps hanging around me more than before, and I just don’t want to have anything to do with her anymore. Am I picky? This girl I know told me she likes this guy but this guys taste in women stinks. He keeps chasing girls who are so arrogant. So she doesn’t like the guy anymore, she seems disappointed when she bring this ups from time to time.

THE GREAT LAW
As you sow, so shall you reap.
This is also known as the Law of Cause and Effect.
Whatever we put out in the Universe›
is what comes back to us.
If what we want is Happiness, Peace, Friendship, Love...
Then we should BE Happy, Peaceful, Loving, a Friend.

THE LAW OF CREATION
Life doesn't just HAPPEN, it requires our participation.
We are one with the Universe both inside and out.
Whatever surrounds us gives us clues to our inner state.
BE and DO yourself...
what you what to have in your Life.

THE LAW OF HUMILITY
What you refuse to accept, will continue for you.
If what we see is an enemy, or someone with a character trait that we find to be negative,
›then we ourselves are not focused on a higher level of existence.

THE LAW OF GROWTH
Wherever you go, there you are.
For us to GROW in Spirit it is we who must change and not the people, places or things around us.
The only given we have in our lives is OURSELVES›
and that is the only factor we have control over.
When we change who and what we are within our heart
our life changes too.

Go To Spencers APA Standings

THE LAW OF RESPONSIBILITY
Whenever there is something wrong,›
there is something wrong in me.
We mirror what surrounds us›
and what surrounds us mirrors us
We must take responsibility what is in our life.

THE LAW OF CONNECTION
Even if something we do seems inconsequential,
it is very important that it gets done
as everything in the Universe is connected.
Each step leads to the next step and so forth and so on.
Someone must do the initial work to get a job done.
Neither the first step nor the last
are of greater significance
They were both needed to accomplish the task.
Past, Present, Future
They are all connected...

Pic of Sam from Mollyknight.com

THE LAW OF FOCUS
You can't think of two things at the same time.
When our focus is on Spiritual Values it is impossible for us to have lower thoughts such as greed or anger.

THE LAW OF GIVING AND HOSPITALITY
If you believe something to be true,
then sometime in your life
you will be called upon to demonstrate that truth.
Here is where we put what we SAY
that we have learned
into PRACTICE.

THE LAW OF HERE AND NOW
Looking back to examine what was,
prevents us from being totally in the HERE AND NOW.
Old thoughts, old patterns of behavior, old dreams...
Prevent us from having new ones.

THE LAW OF CHANGE
History repeats itself until
we learn the lessons that we need
to change our path.

Time for a shave William

THE LAW OF PATIENCE AND REWARD
All Rewards require initial toil.
Rewards of lasting value
require patient and persistent toil.
True Joy follows doing what we're suppose to be doing and waiting for the Reward to come in it's on time.

THE LAW OF SIGNIFICANCE AND INSPIRATION
You get back from something whatever
you've put into it
The Value of something is a direct result of
the energy and intent that is put into it.
Every personal contribution
is also a contribution to the Whole
Lack luster Contributions have no impact on the Whole
or work to diminish it.
Loving Contributions Life Up and Inspire the Whole

Any comments?

August 9th 2004 Monday

August 9th 2004 Monday
Monday league, A few disturbing things and then something very nice. The energy level on my team was negative. I will make sure it will never be that way again. George is singing an old song to Rachel. Poor Rachel does not realize that George is all way’s breaking promises and letting people down. He’s gong to do it to Rachel, I know it and George is going to get a big foot in his Ass by her. Anyway when I played Alex it was fun. He won the match…but one of his team mates said to me during my match ”ya-know William, watching you play is like a beautiful song, smooth Fluent and pleasing to watch and feel.” After I heard that, to me, that’s what ya-call a win. Winning the point is one thing, but winning the heart and respect of your opponent, opposing team observers is the best point of all.

About August 6th 2004 The High eye
This Guy I know, his name is Fx, he is the George of the dart world, Pilipino, alcoholic, who am I to judge, whatever. He play’s a game of pool with AJ one night and wins the game in the end. AJ says “Give me a High Five Fx you played good” FX goes for the high five completely missing AJ hand and smacks AJ right in the eye knocking him to the ground. I like to call this, give me High Eye.

Skinny Vinny, A cafe Vic would Love, and Me with no 55 on our way to the Big Apple T

Big Apple T… http://www.azbilliards.com/bigapple2004/brackets.cfm
So I went to the Big Apple Nine ball Tournament and watched the pro pool player beat each other up on the pool tables. It was fun to watch. I learned a few things-or-more to the point cultured old feelings by watching the players live upfront and personal. Doing this certified my buoyancy about the pastime of pool and the competitiveness involved. When I walked in and watched Ralf Souquet Shoot his game against some unfamiliar gentleman player. I noticed not how he (Ralf Souquet) was shooting the ball meaning, the English he used for position and so forth, I noticed his “body language” before during and after his shots. I wasn’t even watching the balls go in the pocket I was watching him; (I’m not gay but) my eyes didn’t leave him for a moment, calm smooth but very active all at the same time was his game, not a moment of doubt appeared at any time during his body movements his expression on his face and so on. It looked like he was playing the violin. But playing a tune he has played once before, and I mean only once. Playing the same song over and over tends to make you bored with it and if ya-get bored your incentive to play well for the game (tune) wanes and he did not look like he was uninterested of the game; uninterested in the tune.

Alien Safari
I went on an alien Safari and watched the alien animals in their natural habitat. I came across Three creatures, a giant cat like creature (female), a giant rabbit like creature also female and a giant bug like creature, kind of like a flea; a (male). The rabbit bought along the cat to a social gathering by a lake to meet the bug. In my past observances of these three, the rabbit and the bug seemingly have had sexual relations already. The rabbit is very fond of the bug. The rabbit introduced her friend the cat to the bug and the bug liked the cat, the cat didn’t think much of the bug but the cat was still polite. The bug had something the cat wanted, access to free beverages from a near bye spring fountain from the center of the lake. The bug noticed the cat’s desire for spring beverage. So the bug offered it to the cat for free. In exchange for a free feel. The cat accepted. The bug proceeded to touching the cat in an inappropriate manners, The cat appeared to not like the bug stroking her hair, but the bug kept on stroking her hair the rabbit was not so pleased with the behavior of the bug and the cat.
*
Visual dialogue…
12:10am
I am watching this sexual violation take place between the bug and the cat and I am thinking just tell him to get the fuck off god how good can that drink be?!?
12:15am
Just say no to bugs. She has this look on her face like what is he doing? And I am thinking from a distance, what are you doing? The bug obviously does not care if you feel a little violated he knows you want free drinks so in exchange he is going to feel you and rub on you and stroke your hair any way he likes.
12:20am
The rabbit is embarrassed and angry. The bug does not care if he looks like a bug.
12:30am
The cat says to the bug, “I have to call my life-mate” the bug proceeds on stroking the cats hair and now he hugs and holds her from behind. The cat does not look too pleased. Nor does the rabbit, the bug is very happy. I think to my self is the drink good?
*
Cry wolf
Hookers sell them selves for money; female bar rats sell themselves for free drinks.
She kept looking down at her drink and slowly stirred it as he moved in closer and closer for more sexual contact. It was like she was taking his slimy behavior just for a free drink. She was clearly uncomfortable but what was stopping her from telling him to get the fuck off of me? Maybe she like it.
*
I have seen it a hundred times already women compromise their dignity for a free drink. This bug does this to every cat that comes to his pond for a free drink. It’s amazing how the cats never say anything to the bug. It was so strange watching this three-way stupidity take place but sometimes people just don’t know how to say no or get off or stop. This might be the reason why I am single. Faithfulness and loyalty is critical with me. There is now way a person can be faithful and loyal if there numb from free drinks.

To be Continued later…..

Sexual Harassment In General
Sexual harassment is by far the most prevalent form of harassment individuals experience in the workplace. Sexual harassment violates the law when it is so severe or constant that it alters the conditions of the victim's employment and creates an abusive working environment. Sexual harassment is illegal under both federal and California law. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title 42 U.S.C. §§ 2000e, et seq., strictly prohibits sexual harassment. Title VII, applies to any company with more than 15 employees when it comes to sexual harassment. In California, sexual harassment and other discriminatory conduct are prohibited by the Fair Employment and Housing Act ("FEHA"), California Government Code Sections 12940, et seq.
Sexual harassment takes many forms. Being the butt of sexually-charged jokes or pranks, being grabbed or whistled at, sexual advances, requests for sexual favors or other verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature can create a hostile work environment and can qualify as sexual harassment. Conduct that makes the workplace sexually charged does not need to be directly aimed at the person being harassed in order for it to be actionable. For example, being subject to pornographic posters/pictures or profanity can still create a hostile work environment.

Facts About Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitutes sexual harassment when submission to or rejection of this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual's employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual's work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment.
Sexual harassment can occur in a variety of circumstances, including but not limited to the following:


* The victim as well as the harasser may be a woman or a man. The victim does not have to be of the opposite sex.
* The harasser can be the victim's supervisor, an agent of the employer, a supervisor in another area, a co-worker, or a non-employee.
* The victim does not have to be the person harassed but could be anyone affected by the offensive conduct.
* Unlawful sexual harassment may occur without economic injury to or discharge of the victim.
* The harasser's conduct must be unwelcome.It is helpful for the victim to directly inform the harasser that the conduct is unwelcome and must stop. The victim should use any employer complaint mechanism or grievance system available.


When investigating allegations of sexual harassment, EEOC looks at the whole record: the circumstances, such as the nature of the sexual advances, and the context in which the alleged incidents occurred. A determination on the allegations is made from the facts on a case-by-case basis.


Prevention is the best tool to eliminate sexual harassment in the workplace. Employers are encouraged to take steps necessary to prevent sexual harassment from occurring. They should clearly communicate to employees that sexual harassment will not be tolerated. They can do so by establishing an effective complaint or grievance process and taking immediate and appropriate action when an employee complains.

August 5th 2004 Thursday ...

5:00pm Thursday. I think I am going to learn to accept certain thing in my life that are not going to change. Maybe sometimes if I look-and-I mean really look then I wont feel so bad sometimes. I miss judge people sometimes and if I just didn’t judge to begin with then maybe just maybe…

I like the way I think and I like the way I feel. It not easy being me I am very difficult to be. Some people see me very clearly and some miss judge me and some just want to laugh at me…
...
...
I think I am going to need a new i-book. (motherboard issue's.) Them’s the breaks William. I leave it at my job alone for a few days and now it doesn’t want to work properly. What ever, now I feel naked without my book. Lets see what Apple care can do.

Alexa's Turning 25!!!
In Alexa's ancestral country of Japan women over 25 are considered unmarriageable old maids, past their prime. They are referred to as "Christmas cake" because nobody wants any Christmas cake after the 25th.
She will celebrate obsoletion with many guests who are also obsolete after 25.... like me....

Vote Kerry for President or Die

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances; but.
This is the part that bothers me…
It's not that people are forced to go there, its not like he has a gun to your head and says “show up or else, let me judge you or else.” People go willingly and know what will happen. It is the fact that people are entertained by it. Vast amounts of people patronize it so it can happen again and again for the sake of being entertained. thats what bothers me. I think human nature over rides freedom of speech and freedom of speech allows it to happen. It is scary to think I am in a minority of people who don’t like to see other human beings embarrassed, humiliated and laughed at in front of thousands. How does one become an icon of greatness of the freedom of speech by humiliating other people? Being heard without fear is what bring out the best in people. But sometimes the best in people makes the worst things happen. When does abuse come in? Does abuse even matter when it comes to freedom of speech? Does hurting other people come with freedom of speech? Then again who has the right to judge what is hurting and what is entertaining? What hurts you does not hurt me and vise versa. So were is the line drawn? Can you put rules on freedom of speech?. I reserve the right to say what I prefer and what I don’t prefer in people places and things. I reserve the right to tell you to Fuck off. Quotes :Unlimited Freedom of Speech

Disadvantages/problems with the freedom of speech on the web

There is one major disadvantage/problem with freedom of speech on the web, but with that one problem comes many problems. That one problem is that some people like to abuse and misuse the right of freedom of speech on the web. People take advantage of a right that is given to them. For example, some people express themselves using profanity or offensive words.
People can “hack” into other computers that do not belong to them and steal information. For example they can get credit cards numbers and max out someone’s credit card for fun. Very funny!! Those who hacked and used another’s credit card may use the excuse of using their freedom of speech on the web. This is a major disadvantage/problem that is a result of abusing and misusing the freedom of speech on the web. People can also “hack” into email addresses that do not belong to them. They can send obscene emails to people without the hackers name; instead the name of the person that the hacker is violating will be on the email. This would completely screw up someone’s personal space. This is another abuse or misuse of the freedom of speech on the web. Say this guy, Tom, created a web page. Someone (a hacker) can go to his web page and post profanity or offensive information on to the bulletin board of Nick’s web page. Naturally Nick will get into trouble for something he didn’t do. This is one thing that freedom of speech on the web allows most people to do: speak their minds on bulletin boards of webpages. However, many take abuse and misuse this right, just for some fun. In the article of http://www.cyberspacefreedom.org/risk.htm, a programmer, Sam, turned on his computer and saw that it was broken into. A “hacker” broke into his computer and posted the program that Sam had been working on the past several months, to a freeware bulletin board. This meant all of his work went down the tubes. This is definitely an abuse and misuse of the right freedom of speech on the web.
These are only a few of the forms of abusing and misusing the right of freedom of speech on the web. There are many other ways in which to abuse and misuse the right. These are all considered disadvantages/problems of the freedom of speech on the web.

" One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors (more to the point, Jack Asses) ."- Plato.
I am voting for Kerry. I think Bush would be the man to have on your side if we went to war but I don’t like that dumb ass running my country, he’s a good wing man, but as a leader for a country? Naaa!! That like saying George can Captain my pool team.

Howard Stern is for Kerry, but Kerry does not want his support... I don’t blame him (Kerry). I wouldn’t want that guy (Howard Stern) on my side even he begged to be on my side. His Support can acutely hurt Kerry. Howard’s version of exercising free speech is something I wouldn’t want to be a part of. If it is possible then yes I don’t have that much objection of taking him (Howard Stern) off the air, then again if Bush does manage to do take Howard Stern off the Air waves then how much worth does free speech have here in the USA? I am pretty torn about the whole idea; I think we might need sleazy public figures like Howard Stern just to keep the balance between good and bad right. Without dark shadows behind us then what’s the point of reaching for the light?

August 1st 2004 July 31st 2004 The weekend Saturday and Sunday…Strange Moon
Sat and Sunday was pretty strange…it was an orange moon then a blue moon. I woke up and I new things were different, first, it had accord to me while I was on my way to buying my I-pod. I forgot my little brother B-day (July. 21, 1972) He died of leukemia in 1998 right before my grandmother died of cancer six months later. He loved Hot dogs; my little brother. And so did my grandmother. So I ate Hot dogs all day and drank lots of beer I knew he was enjoying that; my little brother. My grand mother didn’t like booze or beer though, maybe that why I didn’t get drunk after about ten beers and a few shots of Irish whisky. I felt them both watching; and eating with me. I felt safe.

Saturday Night 2004

Cashes Dad showed up to play some pool. Lindsay is doing hands stands. People peeing all over the place. The moon turned Blue from it being Orange just a moment ago. I couldn’t get drunk to save my life.
