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)

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 August 1, 1941, the first jeep debuts just 49 days after the US military challenges American auto makers to develop a fast, lightweight, all-terrain vehicle for Allied use during World War II. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower later proclaims America could not have won the war without the jeep. (Photo: Women employees work on a jeep assembly line in Toledo, Ohio, Dec. 2, 1941.)

"On July 31, 1975, American labor leader Jimmy Hoffa vanishes in Detroit,"
(I am deeply concerned with the labor union in my long life as a top management back in Japan, so that I am deeply concerned with this Event article. By the way back in 1993, when I made "1993 One-month investigation trip in the American trucking industry", I visited the Union's headquarter in Washington DC. Stayed and talked with a personal I had engaged for more than a couple of hours. He said to me, "...You are the first and the only Japanese ever visited our office!!!!)

On This Day in American History
On July 31, 1975, American labor leader Jimmy Hoffa vanishes in Detroit, Michigan. Most assume Hoffa is the victim of a Mafia hit. Hoffa, an ardent advocate for workers, also associates with high-ranking mobsters. His disappearance remains shrouded in mystery. (In this Sept. 30, 1957 file photo, Jimmy Hoffa waves to delegates at the opening of the Teamsters Union convention at Miami Beach, Florida.)

This happened the very spot where I stood for a while waiting for the taxi comes resting my left arm on the step wall. I feel I imagine myself standing behind the left photo watching the young Jimmy Hoffa with his group.... I feel romantic! )

                     The Editor's memo for this day!   
                                   Tuesday, July 31, 2018
(This column is a sort of the Editor's memo or diary on the day before this top site dated. However, the main point is to show something with photos concerned for half fun or curiosity.)
      It happened that an interesting photo article caught my eyes and heart while I am looking for some interesting article in the Japanese edition, so that I bring the photos here for the English edition visitors for enjoyment.
                             "Leap of courage off Bosnian bridge"

    A man jumps from the Old Bridge.

REUTERS/Dado RuvicCelebi wrote that, when seen from a distance, the bridge "looks round like a bow out of which an arrow has just flown, and the bow froze." He said that the divers "run up before jumping from the bridge, fall down into the river and fly through the air like birds performing tricks."

At just 16, debutant Emil Petrovic is the youngest participant in this year's contest, the 452nd held on the gravity-defying white bridge that arches over the Neretva River through a point 24 meters (79 feet) above the water. "In this town, it's an obligation for every boy my age to dive off the Stari Most," he said.

REUTERS/Dado RuvicThe graceful Ottoman-era Old Bridge that gives the city its name was finished in 1566 or 1567 and stood until Bosnian Croat artillery destroyed it in 1993, during the Bosnian War. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it was rebuilt in 2004.

REUTERS/Dado RuvicThe first written account of young men leaping off Stari Most into the rushing waters of the Neretva comes from the 17th century Ottoman explorer Mehmed Zilli, known as Evliya Celebi, who traveled the empire for 40 years, recording his observations in his Book of Travel.

REUTERS/Dado RuvicTo this day, the 'swallow dive' that Celebi celebrated is still performed by Mostar's divers.

REUTERS/Dado RuvicEmil Petrovic, 16, jumps from the Old Bridge, taking the safer option by jumping in feet-first. "It's a fantastic feeling," he said after emerging from the chilly emerald water to cheers of relief and admiration from the crowd. "I wanted to preserve the tradition -- but also to show that I'm grown-up and brave," he said, adding that he had wanted to compete last year, but his mother said 'no'. "This time, my father persuaded her, and they are both proud."

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.
