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 2, 1790, the first US Census is conducted under the direction of Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson. The census classifies and counts the number of people in every household including white males 16 years and older to ‘assess the country’s industrial and military potential.’ Both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are skeptical about the final count of 3.9 million because they think the actual number of US inhabitants is much higher. (Photo: President George Washington (bottom) and Vice President John Adams (center left) signed the 1790 census act on March 1, 1790.)

                     The Editor's memo for this day!   
                             ・Saturday, August  4, 2018
     Well, well, More than a week has passed since this column was filled last with the Editor's activities reports...., which means he has been occupied with lots of works to be done for keeping these sites active both in English and Japanese!! The Editor wants the visitors that he is at desk at least more than ten hours a day and night trying to edit as much as possible so that an old Editor tries to keep out of being senior seniority, in Japanese "Boke".
     Just for half fun, I would like to post something satiric
article with photos concerned. I hope the English visitors could imagine what these mean to the visitors at this time of circumstances of the medias. By the way, I was and am a sect of negative watch-man toward the President from the very beginning....
      In editing the Japanese article, 「トランプ米大統領、ロシア疑惑巡る捜査「直ちにやめるべき」と投稿」(REUTERSロイター)2018.8.2.), I inserted the following photos half for fun and half for serious report for. I hope the visitors could imagine what the article means!! I just want to make things satirical in time of so many and much of negative and half-for-fun mas media reports for.

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.
