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 take pride in being able to say this website contain so much as to be able to say "As far as the contents volume is concerned, mine is one of the biggest in Japan!" Just try to click "The Data Size(The Editing volume)". If edited into book form it would be as big as some "A few dozens"!

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 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 be "The fifth stage of my life".

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 in English."English Contents" is it.

                                         The Editor's memo for this day!
                                  Wednesday, 18, January, 2018
I am afraid that I have to apology the visitors to give up continuing this  column for the time being until proper ways and means of editing could be found. All come from the fact that one site editing volume needs to be limited within 1000KB(1MG).

                       today@VOA &
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 January 22, 1973, the US Supreme Court establishes a woman’s legal right to choose to have an abortion" 
 (The-34-photo-attached file)(312.12KB)

On This Day in American History
On January 22, 1973, the US Supreme Court establishes a woman’s legal right to choose to have an abortion in the landmark Roe v. Wade decision. In a 7-to-2 vote, the justices affirm that the right to end a pregnancy is protected under the Fourteenth Amendment to the US Constitution, which guarantees privacy rightsl. (Photo: Norma McCorvey, the ‘Jane Roe’ of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, in 1990.)

3. "Youth "
This poem is very popular among Japanese regardless of their being business tops or the workers. A friend of mine gave me the copy, saying that "Yoshida"s way of life overlap with the way the poem writes". I was charmed with its contents so that I brought it  into one of my favorite recitations.

I remember that the first time I happened to know of this poem was at my twentieth when I came to know that the poem was
by Samuel Ullman who first appeared in the Readers' Digest in 1945, the year the World War ended, and years passed after my friend gave me a poem text. 

I also came to know that General
Douglas MacArthur, was one of the lovers of the poem. An interesting point and proud of about my recitations with this one is that at the end of  the poem of, I personally add some words to that. " may die young at eighty." turns to my own words of "...You may die young at a hundred!! in Yoshida's own words!".

By the way, General Douglas MacArthur is so familiar to the Filipinos. I found in The Manila Times an article about him entitled "
Behind every great man  The women in  the life of General Douglas MacArthur".

4.  "Lincoln's Gettysburg's Address"
Lincoln's Gettysburg' Address is popular even among Japanese. Fortunately, in my life with a widow lady after my divorce with my former wife(....Well, sorry for being personal. A huge amount of story await for me to tell about my life history, though), her daughter happened to read aloud her high school English text, I gave her some suggestion on the pronunciation, which brought me great interest to make it as one of my own favorite English recitations.

It was in 1993 when I was in the midst of my one-month-investigation trip to the States, I visited  the Abraham Memorial Hall, where I met the President statue and on the side wall was his that famous speech! I was captured with that big speech text carved or painted, and began to stay there with my reading in heart as if making myself speaking it!

An American man standing beside me seemed interested so that I said to him, "I could make that recitation perfectly!" like a boy being proud of being able to! He seemed interested and said, "when I was young, schools used to demand students to memorize and read it aloud. However, in modern times...No..." by shrinking his shoulders.)

I remember the year before last, on the 9.11 ceremony in NY, an American politician, whose name I don't remember, stood on the platform beside the speech table with this recitation, needless to say not looking down on the speech table for the text. I thought I could make it as good as he did!!

5. "My Way "
"My Way" is indeed the best one to end the 8-minute-recitations as the final one in that I can overlap my own life with that of the original singer Frank Sinatra, in such a way as he ended with;

The last words of Frank's is ♪....Yes..., this is my way...♪ is the very thing that yoshida wants to say in heart, concluding a series of English recitations with ♪...Yes, this is my OWN way...♪. I conclude a series of my English recitation with the thought that "I have lived and will continue living the life in the way I believed to be right and demanded to...".

My last stage of life here in the soil of the Philippines is to end my life with a prayer of those who died here with no regards of nationalities during the World War II with my humble prayers.

A couple of photos attached far the right below are Ms. Masako Doi, ex socialist parliament lady, who became the first Chairwoman in the parliament general assembly, was a fond of ♪My Way♪. She used to sing it with her dignity and passion as if she herself played the life like that of Frank. See her proud posture with her back so straight in her parliament chairwoman table, and so do this an aged man of Yoshida.
I thank you for reading such a long explanation.

Lastly, this Editor, Yoshida, would like to give the visitors a smiling "Peanuts and his fellow doggy" with their cute thoughts or conversation. This piece of cartoon symbolizes  one of my life philosophies I reached after more than 60-year -life as a top business person in three stages of Life in Japan.

This idea is well and much expressed as "From own profit to others' profit", which is explained in detail when you click that, though in Japanese. Someday, I would like to have its English translation for my intention of giving the visitors as a token of my thanks for your kind visit.
