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)

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.

On This Day in American History
On July 24, 1974, during the Watergate scandal, the US Supreme Court unanimously rules that President Richard Nixon cannot withhold subpoenaed White House tapes. The high court orders the president to surrender the tapes to the special prosecutor. The Watergate scandal erupted after the Nixon administration attempted to cover up its involvement in a break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate office complex (shown in photo on April 20, 1973) in Washington.

                     The Editor's memo for this day!   
(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.)
                                       ・Monday, July 23, 2018

    I've been too busy to spend time in this column for more than a dozen days. However, in the Japanese language edition of my website, so many and much of the space are always occupied with many articles and with my own thoughts and ideas and that photos concerned trying to translate into what I call "Illustrated Story". Words being translated into photos, like slides so to speak.
     By the way, what do you think of a big space far top of the top page with a line of photos concerned with my long messages. The collapsed building in the center is the very one I was buried in at the very moment of the atomic bomb dropped with the expression of "Pikadon!", which mean "Pika(Flash)-Don(Bang)", meaning "After a big light flash" came a big "Bang!", meaning a sort of short  colloquial expression of "A-bomb Drop".

      Japanese word or verb "SASU" has many characters(Kanji=Chinese letters) and each different meanings such as "指す(sasu)=point,  挿す(sasu)=enclose, insert, 刺す(sasu)=prod、poke、stab、dig、jab、knife、bite..., so that Japanese people especially old generation like Yoshida hate making its posture or hand move pointing at persons whom he or she speaks.  Well, do my explanation make sense to you?
  As for the one seen Hitler seems as if pointing at, that is Nati's  military salute, never the same one as Trump often make when he is excited or tries to really pointing at people to whom he speaks like "Hey YOU!...".     

     ...Well, well, this column words and photos are half fun and half real... Sorry, Mr. President, Trump!!!

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.
