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!     
                                     Friday 23, February, 2018
     Among the "Today's Events" (Japanese edition:Japan times)is "No.23: 1942-the VOA, American radio broadcasting program headed to foreign countries in the far-east, started", gives me a dear and vivid and nice sounding memories to my ears, so that I attached a line of the photo-concerned again here.
     It was some years after the War when it came into my ears through the short-wave radio. We had no TV those days, you now.
     My vivid memories are that the announcer's voice and tone of the greeting at the beginning and end of the program; "Good evening, this is the Voice of America for freedom and peace. We are broadcasting from Washington DC, the nation's  capitol, to the  people of the Far-East. Monday  through Saturday, we bring you the latest news and special features....". To my ears who were eager to learn English conversation, the voice and tones were so nice and charming and even pretty heavy and nice! I really wished if I could speak English that way and tone!!
      The program ended with the announcer's (again) charming and nice and heavy toned greeting voice of "...This has been the voice of America for freedom and peace, bidding you good night from Washington...."
     Well, such is Yoshida's thought of VOA, so that the present editing program of "VOA@com" is and will be one of my most favorite editing information....

                        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 February 22, 1819, the United States buys Florida from Spain for $5 million — "
      "FLORIDA" reminds me of various important accomplishments and dear memories of my never-to-be-forgotten life experience in 1993, when I made "One month trip to the States continent for American trucking industry investigation" . Let me blog in some lines...
      My first visit was "American Trucking Association, Inc." in Virginia for a week. Then followed the invited attendance to the "1993 American Trucking Annual Convention" held in Jacksonville, Florida for a week.
      Florida reminds me of something and somebody. An episode about Yoshida and Mrs. Ann Adams, polio artist」would tell a part of its story.
     Florida is well known as a best location for the retired people for enjoying
subtropical
 especially with the sunbathing, and so am I here in this subtropical country the Philippines! With no more braces in both legs, though wheelchairs, I have been totally free from that much of stress and sometimes pains...

On This Day in American History
On February 22, 1819, the United States buys Florida from Spain for $5 million — approximately $93 million in today’s dollars. The deal is negotiated by John Quincy Adams, the secretary of state under President James Monroe. Spain agrees to the sale because Florida has become a burden to it. (Photo: Old Florida State Capitol, built in 1845, in Tallahassee.)
