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. You could see this in "Atomic bomb survivor credits desire to learn for living 'four lives'(The JAPAN Times, August 4, 2012). 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. Far the right one is the one taken in October, 2017 in my office.

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".

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 book is "Yoshida's Advice to the Professional Truck Drivers"(Japanese Edition) plays a sort of its text.
I have its English translation of the Contents."English Contents" is it.

                                         The Editor's memo for this day!    
                                  Wednesday 11, April, 2018
      The Japanese business magazine  "DIAMONDonline" published an interesting article concerning "logistics" in Japan. 「深刻なドライバー不足、物流危機をいかにして乗り越えるか 公共トラックターミナルを舞台とした「協働化」という解決策DIAMONDonline:2018.4.11.)(Sorry! With no English translation!
   
 
Logistics is the one I was engaged in for some 46 years, 32-year as a trucking company top management, and 16-year as a logistics consultant until I left Japan for the Philippines.
     My special interest is concerning the terms "modal-shift" and "Intermodal". The former was the one we Japanese first used as "Japanglish", while the latter in the States. However, it seems that "modal-shift" seemed to be turned the original English. This I could say from the fact that follows;
      Back in 1993, when I made "One-month investigation trip for the trucking industry in the States, I happened to ask a lecturer who made a lecture on "Logistics", he used the term "Intermodal". When I made a question whether or not they use the one Modal Shift", he denied by shrinking his shoulders said never. That made me believe ever since that the word "modal-shift" is a sort of what we call "Japanglish".
      My interest is now the term seemed to be used in the States. This brought me to edit this sort of sarcastic blog with some photos like the followings;
     If anyone likes to comment something, please send me email, please! Ha ha.

This column is for editing what I call "the illustrated stories" with photos related with the events and news, so that the visitors could enjoy the stories in a visual ways. The former, "today@VOA" deals with historical events with the exception of week-ends, and the latter with stories who lived and dead with more than a hundred years old of his or her lives. My interest in the latter one comes from my strong will of living more than a hundred of years trying to make it with a thought of my mother who lived until 102, or my personal wish and will to live a life of the so-called "The longest lived Hibakusha(A-bomb survivor) with my thought of "Ms. Elbina Deans, the longest-lived suruvivor of the Titanic", and another target of a 119-year-old Filipina, Puerto Princesa, with the title of oldest living person in the Guinness  Book of World Records.

On April 10, 1866, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is founded in New York City by US diplomat Henry Bergh, who is motivated to establish the ASPCA after seeing work horses being beaten by their peasant drivers in Russia. The ASPCA becomes a model for other humane organizations in the United States and Canada.

I am fond of English language. My history of English language studying dates back when I was in night-time high school. I was obliged to give up higher education because of my father's early death right after the Hiroshima atomic bomb drop.
