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.(January 1st, 2018)

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.

The followings are some of my writing records in English publicly opened. The Japanese editions of this kind are far the more, though....

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!
                              Saturday 17, February, 2018
      The below a line of photos is something I happened to hit in the website of exactly a year ago this day in the Japanese edition when I was editing. I came to remember in the process of editing a column, so that I bring them here for fun. Ha ha...
       The far the left is the one even made me utter "Why me here!?". My Japanese old friends or children would even say, too, "Why here!!!". Ha ha. James Dean was the one people played me saying "Hey, Dean!". And the last gentleman, actor, Denero, makes me recall laughing. It was in Japan when I invited for dinner a Filipina mother and her daughter, the latter, as soon as she sees my face, uttered and laughed, "Wow! Looks like Robert De Niro!!!" and gazed at me for some time. I never say these thing with a sort of pride or something, only for fun、I mean it!

       Today's "VOA@com" is No.373(feb. 17, 2018)"On February 16, 1933, Prohibition ends in the United States.". It's been some five years since I stopped drinking. Some of the photos I selected in the column make me feel smiling or laughing. Someone might be asking me "Why stopped drinking?". My answer is something I don't know myself. It might be that because of my being busy with editing or partly because I find it troublesome making the choice of food for the drink, I don't know... One thing I now feel strong for sure is that the present busy life of day and night finds drinking is never welcome. 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 This Day in American History
On February 16,1933, Prohibition ends in the United States. The nationwide constitutional ban on the production, transportation and sale of alcoholic beverages lasted from 1920 to 1933. The US Senate passes the Blaine Act, initiating the repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment to the US Constitution, which established Prohibition. (Photo: Orange County Sheriff’s deputies dumping illegal booze, Santa Ana, on March 31,1932.
