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.(September 10, 2016)

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!    
                                 Thursday 22, March, 2018
      Can you imagine what the Editor intends to demonstrate by showing such beauties plus in the bottom line myself with the braces in both side showing that this Editor were dependent on them when I walk until some six years before?
      Half for fun and half for serious mind, let me tell some interesting stories hidden by those photos. Firstly, ever since I came to this country of the Philippines, I came to be aware  that the Filippinas sure look beautiful especially their walking style, I mean, compared with that of fellow Japanese girls who walk with their head rather downward and with short steps, which comes from the Japanese custom of waking style in the Kimono, Japanese traditional classical wares.
     On the contrary, here in the tropical country Philippines, many girls wear short pants with beautiful slim and straight legs, so that they expose their body lines with no hesitation, and one more
plus you know what?! with big Hips! This is what I call "After many years of investigation(?)". I came to a conclusion that the reason for their beautiful walking style comes mainly from  their nice and big hips!!!
      By the way my three sisters had big hips very rare as Japanese! The point is my case! I never thought of anything about the hips big or not. An interesting thing about my awareness of my hips rather big came since I began using the braces on my both leg and feet. Due to my walking becoming easier with the braces, I could watch my own walking style by the show windows I walk by. I came to know that my hips sure seem ugly look backwards....Never the king of charm or the like, you know. (Ha). My thought of hips big if ever comes from my effort of walking with some stress in the hips due to abnormal physical stress giving to the hips...
     It was a short time before my departure to the Philippines that a friend of mine once said to me in serious manner, "Mr. Yoshida, you look nice with your big hips even though crippled walking!". I accepted his words not as for better but for consoling me for my ugly walking style.
     It was not until some ten years after that I came to know or realize that that is not a joke but real!  My life in the Philippines and watching the people here changed my thought and notion of physical style and came to the conclusion I  mentioned. Watching myself in the mirror, I secretly say to myself "My hips sure look big and not bad!". Ha, ha!! Anyway, I sure wish the visitors of this site would never think this sort of demonstration is never the joke and flattering! 
     By the way, the braces shown here are the sample I used to use until some six years before. They are sleeping in a corner of the room never to be used again. I completely depend on the wheel chairs by the thanks of the Filipino family under complete care. However, I never neglect trying to exercise whatever possible for minor leg exercising and others in a possible way and manners.
     ...I wonder my explanations or writing this could make the visitors to my web site understand what I intend to say with those photos, though.

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 March 22, 1765, the British government levies its first internal tax directly on American colonists with the Stamp Act. All material printed for commercial and legal use in the colonies, such as newspapers, pamphlets, wills, deeds and playing cards, is subject to the new tax. The move angers the colonists, who raise the issue of taxation without representation. (Photo: tax stamps)

On This Day in American History
On March 20, 1852, Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe is published. The anti-slavery novel energizes the abolitionist cause and helps lay the groundwork for the Civil War. The book also perpetuates stereotypes about black people, such as the affectionate, dark-skinned ‘mammy’ or the ‘Uncle Tom’, the long-suffering servant who is faithful to his white master. (Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin , circa 1852.)
