The United Arab Emirates (UAE) provides drinking water to Yemen.
The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) has initiated 32 drinking water projects over the last three years that benefit approximately 600,000 people across the governorates of Yemen’s Red Sea Coast. They are part of humanitarian initiatives of the UAE in Yemen that focus on food assistance, social services, dwellings and sustainable development. In particular, the ERC has prioritized the drinking water projects to ensure people have a nearby supply of clean water, helping to improve their lives and stability. The ERC also supplies solar energy systems to generate electricity for residents to pump water. Our heartfelt gratitude and Heaven’s blessings, the United Arab Emirates and the Emirates Red Crescent, for extending your friendship and love in action to cherished neighbors. We pray that the humble Yemeni people continue to be shielded, in Allah’s eternal care.
World Economic Forum outlines economic opportunities of “nature-positive” solutions.
The World Economic Forum, an international non-governmental organization for public-private cooperation, has reported that more than 50% of the world’s gross domestic product (GDP) is at risk because of biodiversity loss. However, 395 million jobs could be created by 2030 by investing in endeavors that support the environment. The Forum noted that US$10.1 trillion in economic gains could be realized by resetting the economy and adding value to nature by implementing renewable energy, green roofs and more. It further emphasized alternative proteins, including water- and land-saving plant-based substitutes and plant-based dairy, over the “particularly resource-intensive, animal-based protein.” Moreover, it pointed out that three socio-economic systems needing to change are food and land use, mining and energy, as well as infrastructure and the human-made environment, which combined make up over 66% of all jobs and over a third of the global economy. “There is no future for business as usual,” the report stated. A respectful salute and our appreciation, World Economic Forum, for your plan to help ensure a greener and brighter tomorrow through living in harmony with nature. In Celestial wisdom, may all nations work together to protect and restore our planet.
Up next, United Kingdom capital to boost walking and cycling infrastructure. We are going to thank the special effects technicians who mesmerize us with the magical scenes they create in movies. Please stay for more benefiting news on Supreme Master Television. Hi there, I’m Kal the vegan Colobus Monkey! Guess how old am I? You can’t. I look half my age, because I’m vegan. Today, we’d like to share a tip from Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai. “If you need soft lighting for the night where you would walk around often, without a glaring bulb, which is eye-irritating, especially upon waking up, just place your mobile phone on top of an “opaque” table lamp or “opaque” bedroom lamp, turn on the phone flashlight, facing down; there you have it. This instant lamp gives a gentle, soothing ambiance evenly all around. Enjoy! God Loves you kids!” We love You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, and our many thanks for this kind suggestion. We look forward to trying it. Lots of love for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet, for all of us humans and all co-inhabitants alike. Thank you for watching! Now, the weather around the world.

African grey parrot outperforms humans in memory test.
An African grey parrot named Griffin recently exceeded university students’ and six to eight-year-old children’s scores in a memory test that was conducted at Harvard University in the United States. In the test, four different colored pom poms were placed under cups, and then the cups’ positions were switched multiple times. The participants were then required to find a certain color under the correct cup. In all versions of the game, smart Griffin outperformed the children, and was comparable or slightly better than the adults until the four items were switched three to four times. You are amazing, smart Griffin! Thank you for helping to highlight the awesome intelligence of our parrot friends. Our thanks also, Harvard University researchers, for this eye-opening study. As we continue to learn more of the incredible abilities of our well-wishing animal co-inhabitants, may we always treat them with the utmost of love and respect.
May your day be brighter with the joke of the day called “Customer is King.”
“In your restaurant, how well do you take care of your customers?”
“We treat our customers like kings; we do all we can to help them.”
“So, if your customer has a problem, you will help them?”
“Yes, our service here is always of a high standard.”
“Please then, will you help me to pay half the bill because I’m running out of money?”
And now we have a heartline from Maral in Mongolia:
My name is Maral. I live in Ulaanbaatar city of Mongolia, and I am 14 years old. I very often watch Supreme Master TV with my two little sisters. They love watching the shows about animals. I never imagined that animals are so intelligent and so full of character. Now I have a very different view about animals. We also like to watch Supreme Master Ching Hai. We love Her very much and She is so lovable! Maral from Mongolia
Amiable Maral, It is nice to read your message. Thank you for following us on Supreme Master Television. We hope that you and your family will continue watching as we offer a wide variety of shows about our lovely animal co-inhabitants.

May the Buddhas’ radiance shine on you and the kind-hearted people of Mongolia, Supreme Master TV team
P.S. Master also says: “Perceptive Maral, the animals love us immeasurably. I truly treasure the time I can be with my dogs and birds, and thoroughly enjoy their company. May Buddhas’ infinite love be with you and gentle Mongolia.”
