                      To Those Who Visited This Site for The First Time      
 
    The editor of this web site, Yuki Yoshida(Hereafter call with the subject of "I", have played what I call "The first, the second and the third stages of Life back in Japan as a top business person. On February 1st, 2009, I began, at the age of late 78, to have what I call "The fourth stage of life" in this soil of the Republic of the Philippines with some aims and reasons, which the visitors would come to find by visiting this Web from time to time.  
      As the visitors of this site see, I try to use as many and much photos concerned. This comes from my motivation of trying to make the visitors enjoy watching the photos concerned, that is, to enjoy visiting this site as a sort of what I call "the illustrated stories". (January 1st, 2018) 

 The photos below are the ones which show what I experienced at the time of being hit by the atomic bomb on August 6, 1945. Students in those day were obliged to throw away studying and work for companies in the absence of employees who were dragged into war battles. My classmates all were assigned to the streetcar and bus repairing plants, while in my case being crippled by polio, I was given office work. It was on my way through the corridore walking to my office alone after the teacher's message in the morning ceremony, that I was hit by the blast. The building collapsed andⅠ was buried under collapsed building with prayer for my helpless escape hope. However, some moment passed, I saw a deem light above my head, so that I crawled up in the debris to the the light above. I was aware I was on the top of the collapsed building, knowing myself looking down far below when I got out. I recall I cried out, "Mammy! Blood coming out!!". Later I came to be aware that I had deep cuts in my face. Well, this is a short real story of a part of a-bomb sufferers' experience. (July 21, 2018)

The upper two photos are in time of my second life in Perpetual university dormitory double rooms, and the below is the newly rented independent house in a village named BelAir 1, where I now live with a Filipino family in a different bigger house. A moment after this photo taken, we had a power cut for a few minutes, which was due to that huge earthquake in Eastern Japan.

I was then in the third stage of my life as a business consultant, maverick consultant firm, LOGITANT, Inc., meaning "Logistic and Logical Consultant. Logistic comes from my own experience of managing a trucking industry company, years later developing into what I called "Seven group companies". "Logic" came from my personal life philosophy of "logical thinking and behavior".

The fourth from left is the one depicting "My  9-minutes-speech in Las Vegus in the International conference of SAM(The Society for Advancement of Management)". I was then the president of Hiroshima branch chapter of the SAM(The Society for Advancement of Management). The award was "Material Handling Award". The attendants were some 300, business persons, university professors and the graduate students, one third each. My dear memory was "Huge standing ovation with whistles" occurred and continued even after returned to my table on the stage!!

Thus after spending my first , second and third stages of my life as a top business person, I am in this soil of the Philippines playing what I call "The fourth life". My expectation would be the 5th life in which I would call "The final fifth stage of my life for writing my final personal history".

On This Day in American History
On May 24, 1974, jazz legend Duke Ellington dies in New York City. He was 75. Ellington is perhaps the biggest name in the history of jazz, and his career spanned decades. Born in Washington, D.C., Ellington was based in New York from the mid-1920s and came to national attention with his orchestra’s appearances at the famed jazz venue, the Cotton Club. By the 1930s his orchestra was regularly touring Europe. Ellington composed over one thousand songs, many of them becoming standards. Some of his most notable songs include “In a Sentimental Mood,” “Satin Doll” and “Mood Indigo.”

"Today@VOA" was first opened by my tinny thought of motivation in which I tried to write something about my Father who died early leaving Me a polio-stricken son whom he boldly used say to Mother, "I would have to take care of this Son throughout my life...". He seemed to be pretended to live longer than Me!(Laugh). The Origin of this column dates back to Oct.2, 2016 with the title of "A Short Story of Yoshida's Car Life in Japan". (March 15, 2019)

(Note; This column was opened since the New York Times mail "Obituries" began to catch my eyes and interest,  wishing myself I could live and do something good in the rest of my longer life. However, it happened the New York Times began to want the males with monthly fee. Being myself in living dependent on the Philippines family and troublesome for the payment, I selected others for the same information, so that, as seen, I have come to use other mass medias.)
