BART (Boundary, Authority, Role and Task) is a user-friendly tool implemented in many organizations or group work to provide the type of learning to be used. The knowledge from such conferences have been found to be personally powerfully and also highly applied in the human systems analysis such as house chores, family dinners to board recruitment to multinational dialogues. Bart helps the group participants to learn about the facets of group dynamics such as response to leadership, resistance to task, capability of roles and reaction to authority (Cytrynbaum and Noumair, 2004).
Application of BART has been seen useful in the completion of my school project. My school project entails working in a group whereby various activities were carried out such as data collection, carrying out questionnaire interviews to the target participants, data analysis, and preparation of tools for research and analysis and finally data presentation. Normally with all these activities, group members may quarrel, disagree on various concepts (Cytrynbaum and Noumair, 2004). Other team members may lag behind and if a solution is not implemented, these factors may lead to late completion of the project or even lead to the project not being completed at all.
Boundary is usually the container for group work(Hayden and Molenkamp, 2002). Territory, time and task provide the basis for understanding boundaries when it comes to group relations works. The school project involved deadlines, specific time for each activity and due dates which had to be adhered to. To avoid the conflict on who was to do what and who was to go where and at what time, territory, work and time boundaries had to be established whereby each group member was allocated with a specific task, given a time schedule within which he or she is…...

A Psychological Analysis of the Simpsons

...present from childhood and causes symptoms such as hyperactivity, poor impulse control, forgetfulness and distractibility. Bart Simpson, the eldest of the Simpsons’ family displayed signs of ADHD. His symptoms were shown though out the episode, especially in the starting. First evidence was shown when principle Skinner is telling Bart about the firefighting equipment and Bart, distractedly, asks about each of them, one after another. He also doesn’t listen to what the principle was telling him thus displaying one of the signs of ADHD. Second evidence was when Bart floods the school gymnasium without regard for the consequences he will have to go though thus showing another sign. The third evidence is of Bart talking non-stop about anything; this is a major sign of ADHD. Lastly, the patterns shown by principle Skinner show that Bart gets distracted easily by anything around him, thus causing those around him to get lower grades. This mental illness is very common in students these days and is better if caught early as medication can help cure it. The id is composed of instincts that give rise to aggressive impulses and biological drives that sustain life, such as hunger and third. Homer Simpsons’ actions seem to be dominated by his id. An example of his actions being influenced by his id is when he makes taffy with the drug Focusyn in it, in order to trick Bart into taking the medication. It turns out that Marge’s loving technique works better. As Homer congratulates her......

Bart Is Greedy

... Persuasive Essay The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system plays a crucial role in the Bay Area’s economy, carrying more than 400,000 commuters to their destinations on a daily basis. As a result, BART employees are generously paid with exceptional compensation at the expense of taxpayers. In addition, they only have to pay a small amount of money for health coverage. They have reached the apex of being best paid in the nation, when compared to other transit agencies and employees. Therefore, BART employees are overpaid welfare recipients. After enduring wage stagnation during the recession and not receiving a raise for nearly 5 years, BART employees deserve a larger paycheck. This sacrifice by no means, justifies a substantial wage increase that BART employees demand since they already have free pensions and health benefits. Unlike the majority of Bay Area union workers, BART employees are not obligated to make contributions towards their pension plan. As a result, BART wasted 57.9% of its operating budget on compensations, pensions and retiree health benefits in 2012 in order to reimburse the employees for “being innovative”(RF). Furthermore, these overprivileged BART employees relentlessly plea for a 15% raise in 3 years, countering BART’s proposal 9% raise in the next 4 years. Consequently, taxpayers paid about $17 million covering what employees were supposed to be contributing to their pensions for the BART system (RF). Assuming that the rate of return on......

Reward for Return of Lost Item

...Re: Alan and Bart: Right to Reward STATEMENT OF FACTS Alan and Bart live in Boring, Oregon. Alan finds an object that belongs to Bart before Bart offers a reward for the return of the object. Under contract law, a reward offer is binding, so that the offeror of a reward must pay a person who completed performance for the offered reward. A person has a responsibility to return lost personal property to its rightful owner. ISSUE The case turns upon the question of whether Alan has the right to withhold the property from Bart pending a reward. APPLICABLE LAW The Supreme Court of Oregon held that it was irrelevant that the finder of lost property did not know about the reward offered for its return at the time of finding it, the court stating that "if the plaintiff really found and took possession of the goods, believing them to be lost, and with a purpose to preserve and return them if possible to the owner, she was in condition to claim the reward, upon complying with its terms." MacFarlane v. Bloch, 59 Ore. 1, 4 (Or. 1911). Section 53 of the Tentative Draft of the Second Restatement of the Law of Contracts takes the position that “unless the offeror manifests a contrary intention, an offeree who learns of an offer after he has rendered part of the performance requested by the offer may accept by completing the requested performance.” 86 A.L.R.3d 1142, 5a *There is some case law/statute that is a better second source for this assignment.

Validity of Reward for Return

...MEMORANDUM From: To: Reader Date: February 1, 2012 Re: Validity of reward for return of lost object Relevant Facts Alan finds a lost object belonging to Bart. Alan intends on returning the object to the rightful owner. Bart, after realizing that he lost the object and after Alan finding it, offers a reward for the return of the object. The events have happened in Boring, Oregon. Issue Presented The issue at hand is whether a reward for the return of the object is binding when it’s made after the object has already been found by another person. Applicable Law In Oregon Supreme Court ruling MacFarlane v. Bloch, 59 Ore. 1 (Or. 1911), the court has sided with the finder of a lost pocketbook and demanded that the rightful owner pays a reward to the finder, after the pocketbook has been returned. The owner claimed that the pocketbook was found before the rewards has been announced, and that the finder delayed returning to pocketbook. “To entitle plaintiff to a reward for finding a lost pocketbook, it was immaterial that she found the book before the offer was made, the reward not being for the finding but for the return of the book.” MacFarlane, 2. The court decided that it was irrelevant when the offer for reward was made, as the reward is for returning the item to the rightful owner and not for merely finding it. The Oregon Supreme Court has also ruled in Watts v. Ward, 1 Ore. 86, 88 (Or.......

Real Property

...Real Property Essay Re: Bart Vs Alan Facts: Alan found an object belonging to Bart in the state of Oregon. Alan found this object prior to Bart offering a reward for it’s return. Bart now does not want to give the reward to Alan upon the return of the object. Issue: Under Oregon Law, Alan is required to return the object to Bart. Can Alan insist on the reward before returning the object? Rule: In MacFarlane v. Bloch, 59 Ore. 1 (Or. 1911) a pocketbook was found by the plaintiff belonging to Bloch. The pocketbook was found prior to Bloch offering a reward for it’s return. The plaintiff asked for the reward as a condition for the return. The defendant refused and had MacFarlane arrested for larceny. The plaintiff returned the pocketbook and was released. The plaintiff proceeded to sue for the reward. The court determined that the reward should be given to MacFarlane, “it was immaterial that she found the book before the offer was made, the reward not being for the finding but for the returning of the book”and “plaintiff complied with this condition of the offer.” Thus, it completed “the contract, making defendant liable for the award.” The court ruled the plaintiff was entitled to the reward and could hold the lost item until the reward was paid. In Watts v. Ward, 1 Ore. 86 (Or. 1854) horses were found by the defendant and an attempt was made to return them to the plaintiff. However, in the process of delivering the horses they were used for driving cattle,......

Desarrollo: El programa de “Los Simpson” cuenta con innumerables ejemplos de problemas éticos y morales, a continuación se detallarán y estudiaran algunos de ellos. Ejemplos: - El primero es cuando a Bart se le presenta un auténtico problema moral al entrar a trabajar con la mafia de su ciudad y descubrir la naturaleza de las actividades de sus nuevos "amigos"..., a continuación se muestra el detalle de esa conversación con “Tony el Gordo” Bart: Oye dime ¿sois ladrones? Tony el Gordo: Bart, ¿Está mal robar una barra de pan para dar de comer a tu familia hambrienta? Bart: No Tony el Gordo: Bien, suponte que tienes una gran familia hambrienta ¿Está mal robar un camión con barras de pan para darles de comer? Bart: Uhh Tony el Gordo: ¿Y qué pasaría si a tu familia no le gusta el pan sino que a ellos les gustan los cigarrillos? Bart: Supongo que sería correcto. Tony el Gordo: Ahora. ¿Qué pasaría si en vez de dárselos gratis, se los vendieses a un precio que es como si prácticamente se los estuvieses dando gratis? ¿Sería eso un crimen, Bart? Bart: Demonios, no En cierta manera, lo que sustenta la argumentación que Tony “El Gordo” le da a Bart es la idea de que a veces podemos actuar quebrantando las normas morales si así evitamos un mal mayor o generamos un bien igualmente amplio. Según los utilitaristas, creen que lo que nos produce felicidad es bueno y útil, por tanto con la explicación de Tony el......

...citizens. In the time of everything being portrayed as perfect and sweet, Simps show us the reality. This sympathy makes general public to easily relate to the characters and understand the problems of our society that the writer intend to reflect. Characters: * Bart Simpson: He defies the image of a perfect oldest son. Bart is a self-proclaimed underachiever. He is showed that he is proud of it too. The audience took it all fine until the “Underachiever and Proud of it” T-shirts became emerging in the elementary schools. This outraged the parents because they feared their children would follow the steps of Bart Simpson and turn out to be like him. The audience can tolerate it up to the level of entertainment, but when it comes to their own children, they have to take a stand! New debates emerged arguing whether Simpsons should be banned or not, or at least limited to proper audience. But then again, they couldn’t determine the specific genre of the show to limit the audience. Bart Simpson is a character that people can easily relate with. Bart is a mischievous school boy who likes to play tricks on others and hats studying, just as most of the boys are. These are the things that relate the character Bart to the audience. Adult audiences can reminiscence his childhood, and young audiences can look through their own acts. They showed the faces of people, which were not talked about, but everyone knew about it. Clearly, Reverend Lovejoy's character satirizes......

Mistaken Adverse Possession by a Neighbor

...Bart’s situation is whether or not Bart is liable to pay the reward he offered for his lost property even though Alan found the property beforehand and may have a pre-existing duty to return the property. Under Oregon law, does Bart have to pay Alan a reward for finding Bart’s lost property before Bart offered the reward? Rule In MacFarlane v. Bloch, 59 Ore. 1, 115 P. 1056, 1911 Ore. LEXIS 98 (Or. 1911), the plaintiff found a pocketbook with promissory notes made out to the defendant owner. At first, the plaintiff did nothing to locate the owner but search the ‘Lost and Found’ section of the paper. The defendant then offered a reward of $100 for the pocketbook to which the plaintiff came forward and the defendant’s agent refused to pay. The court awarded the plaintiff the reward money with Mr Chief Justice Eakin stating, “the finding of the book was not the purpose of the offer,” it was the return of the book and the plaintiff complied. ORS § 98.005 states if a person finds goods or money valued at $250 or more, he or she must give notice in writing to the clerk of the county within 10 days and within 20 days post notice in the general newspaper of the area in which the goods or money was found and if no such owner comes forward in 3 months, the finder is then deemed the owner. Analysis If Alan found Bart’s object, and in good faith, held on to it until he could locate the rightful owner then Bart would have to pay Alan the reward. Bart would breach the contract he......
