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.(September 10, 2016)

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!    
                                       Thursday 19, April, 2018
      As you see, this day's column "Events April  20, Yoshida-selected" has my personal experience with "Ocean Ranger" in the bottom five line of photos. Let me explain more in detail together with the photos below again.....
      A business talk first came from one of the biggest customers back in my third stage of life as a top businessman, trucking company. Our main work was the transportation of cement, both packed and bulk, the latter with tank truck named "Jet Pack", which is so designed that the bulk cement is pushed into the cylo by means of the compressed  air. In those days my company possessed the biggest number of the tank-trucks in Japan. 
      A sales man from the Mitsubishi Trading Inc. came to see me together with the sales man of the customer company, who happened to be a son of the then President of the customer company, cement manufacturing company.
     The point was that some 400 tons of bulk cement was supposed to be transferred in the distance of some hundred kilometers and that in a short period of time. The point or my demand to the Rig captain was to place the rig along the shore so that the tank truck can connect the pipe for air compressor pushup the cement to the silo in the rig. He okayed my plan at the beginning. 
   However, on the very day of the first delivery, we came to know the rig was far away from the shore anchored, so that the tank trucks had to be carried by the barge taking so much time being almost unable to perform  the delivery satisfactory! I vividly remember that I called the captain and yelled out "You promised you sure keep the rig ashore!!! Otherwise, we cancel the operation!!". The captain said "So sorry, this is beyond my power, being the demand of the company...". I remember that was the first time I ever yelled out angry in English so big that the cement manufacturing salesman mentioned before was so surprised saying later time, "I have never seen and heard such scene before, a Japanese yelling out angry in such a native-like English!!". Ha, ha.
     After all, however, we were obliged and had to find the way somehow to accomplish the operation and that with 24-hour operation days and nights! 
     The captain and the cement Manufacturing company salesman all seemed so surprised and sincerely appreciated our operational efforts. The pint was that I and the captain promised that after the operation finished successfully, I promised the captain to invite him in a famous Japanese first class restaurant
for cheerio. However, when the time came, he suddenly called me and said, "I really appreciate and thankful for your kind invitation... However, I am so  exhausted and my next new move order came, so that let me accept your very kind offer by words and thanks indeed."
      A few years later, I came to know of the miserable information of the rig "Ocean Ranger" sunken with all the men...  Amen.... 
     Oh, I almost forget to comment something! You know what?! With my crippled leg and foot with no braces those days only with a stick in my left hand, I walked the stair steps climbed a top of the rig mast after the captain!!! By the way, the walking cane happened to be a present for my 20th birthday by an American polio artist, Mrs. Ann Adams, whose episode is seen "
An episode about Yoshida and Mrs. Ann Adams, polio artist".

                         today@VOA & NYTimes.com
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 18, 1906, the Great San Francisco Earthquake kills hundreds..."
        Among the visitors may think "This is the one seen in 'Events April  18, Yoshida-selected' yesterday"...?? Yes, you are right! My selection is a sort of real time one from the Wikipedia! The only difference is that the photo here far the right one top is replaced with the one the VOA.com shows!!!

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.
