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.(August 28, 2017)

The above photos, the left is the one taken coincidentally right on the very day and moment when the Huge and dreadful earthquake hit in Eastern Japan on March 11, 2011. The middle is the one taken on the day when my passport was renewed in the Japanese Embassy in Manila on September 11, 2014, with another termination date of Ten years, 2024, meaning I would be 93-year-old with the necessity for the next renewal with another termination of 103 years old! Yes!? The necessity would come again! Ha.(Note)Continuing, the photo in the middle is the one without glasses. The former one was with glasses. It happened that the photo file in the editing file was carelessly deleted, so that I was obliged to replace with the one without I happened to take.

Well, someone is saying "What about the newest and the latest photos? My answer is simple. My everyday life in 24-hour is in "Suteteko(long drawers) & half sleeve shirt", not suitable for formal appearance! It might be when our family move to our scheduled own newly built beautiful house and lot in "Santa Rosa Heights" in a few years in a nice and beautiful big office of my own with suitable hero's costumes for the photo here, yes!

The above photos are the ones taken in around 2001, when this website was first published by myself with minor knowledge of editing, not using the ready-made form of website editing. 

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 subsidary group companies". "Logic" came from my personal life philosophy of "logical thinking and behavior".

The photos above, the second and third from left are taken in what I called SOHO, small office and home office. The fourth 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 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 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" as a........is the most interesting life story beginning. What is it? or what it will be?...is the very things depicting in this website!

One thing that is worthy of depicting here and I feel proud of is that an almost-100-year-old trucking company in Shimbashi, Tokyo which was used be my 10-year-old client until leaving Japan is still and will be using Yoshida-written book as a sort of text for the newly-employed managers. The company's present President, the third generation, graduate from Keio to Michigan Universities, gives me opportunity of working for his company in a very interesting way. The newly employed managers are obligated to read that book of mine and obligated to answer and write his or her own thought and opinions to the company questions. Then the reports are sent to me! And the writer, Yoshida, is obligated to answer or advise to them in a form of writer's opinions and advises... My obligation to the company is something very unique! Yosihda-written book "Yoshida's Advice to the Professional Truck Drivers"(Japanese Edition) plays a sorto of its text. I have its English translation of the Contents" in English."English Contents" is it.

                                 The Editor's Special Diary Corner
This is a new plan for the Editor, trying to challenge to blog more freely in the editor's free mind of something in mind before trying to edit in a formal way to post in the site with no hesitation or anything the like of it. In a sense, I would like to use this corner as what is called "Behind the Stage" so to speak. So that this corner might be used when my wish to blog anything in someway or others as a sort of manuscript, thus the visitors might enjoy peering into the editor's room. Ha.

On November 18, 1883, the American and Canadian railroads start using four continental time zones..."
Very good way of the solution of time lag on the globe especially for the people moving throughout the world!

As for me, editing this VOA is being made almost one day lag. I try not to care the "Date" of the Event happening between America and Japan...

On This Day in American History
On November 18, 1883, the American and Canadian railroads start using four continental time zones to stem the confusion of dealing with thousands of local times. As late as the 1880s, most U.S. towns had their own local time, generally based on ‘high noon,’ creating a scheduling nightmare for the railroads. The bold move illustrates the immense power wielded by railroad companies in the late 1800s.

On November 17, 1973, President Richard Nixon utters the infamous words, ‘I’m not a crook,’..."
     I took some a couple of hours editing this article, mostly chasing the article trying to get the photos concerned. I even find out there are somethings I did not know at the time this historical incident came to the light.
     The visitors of this column would be surprised if I say "I had a chance to see Mr. Nixon and exchanged few words with him and had a shake hand when he was Vice President!!!
      He was then the vice president of Pepsi Cora, visiting the opening ceremony of Pepsi bottling plant, which was then one of the customers in my trucking industry management.
     My strong memory at that time is, when I told him "I am a survivor of Hiroshima atomic bomb....", he seemed startled gazing at me in the eyes!.... 85-year-old-man like me has a lot of memories in life and will have more and more, and more fun editing the information in a way like this!!

On This Day in American History
On November 17, 1973, President Richard Nixon utters the infamous words, ‘I’m not a crook,’ in response to reporter questions about his role in the Watergate burglary scandal and subsequent efforts to cover up the involvement of members of his re-election committee. The scandal eventually costs the embattled Republican the presidency, and he is forced to resign.
