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. 

         "Today's Event special", Editor YOSHIDA selected special
                                             (NEW COLUMN)           
It has been quite a time since I set this column here for everyday happening from Wikipedia with lots of photos concerned trying to let the viewers follow the events as if watching the events as "Illustrated Stories" or the like. However, setting the photos in various sizes and so many is made by the computer mouse, so that it has long been the cause of shoulder aching in a long run. Therefore, I hit upon an idea of trying to let me edit in a way more easier or in a simple way the viewers try to see. This choice of the editor's free mind comes from the one seen in "", so to speak.

                                                   The Editor's memo for this day!    
                                           Tuesday  6, March, 2018
     Well, Editor's motivation of changing the selection to a single Event is this! It is that the Event appears both in the English and Japanese edition of the Wikipedia with one-day-time-lag between USA and Japan!, which means after all, the Event is internationally important, significant and well known-to-be!
     I am perfectly satisfied with my decision of editing reform of the column of "Today's Event" in this way.
Sorry for being absent from this column for days!          

                            today@VOA & NYTimes.com
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 March 12, 1894, Coca-Cola is sold in a glass bottle for the first time"
     In my personal life as a top management while back in Japan, I take pride in  heart that my whole life of some almost 80 years in Japan, throughout what I call the first , the second and the third stage of my top manage man life, Pepsi Cola, brother rival drink of Coke, was one of the customers while in the trucking industry in which I spent some 32 years.
     One of the dear memories while in the trucking industry, is that in the opening ceremony and party of the customer, Pepsi Cola bottler-selling company, had a opening ceremony-party for the plant, where Mr. Richard Nixon, then the vice president of Pepsi
Cola head office in the States was present. I vividly remember when I shake hands with him saying "I am an A-bomb survivor...", he seemed startled for a moment. However, with my immediate next of my words of "But I love your country and your people for various meaning...", he seemed happy. Well, this is a rare experience as a Japanese exchanging a few words with him later year becoming the US President!

On This Day in American History
On March 9, 1841, the US Supreme Court rules that captive Africans who seized control of the ship carrying them — The Amistad — were illegally taken into slavery. The Africans had been kidnapped in West Africa and were bound for Cuba when they took control of the vessel. The Supreme Court rules 7-1 in the Africans’ favor, finding they’d been illegally taken from Africa and should return home. (Image: Sengbe Pieh (Joseph Cinque), leader of the La Amistad uprising.
