Kids’ heartfelt plea for the planet on Britain’s Got Talent.
Children’s choir, SOS From the Kids, on the auditions edition of Britain’s Got Talent, moved the audience and judges to tears with their poignant song about the climate crisis. Aged between four and 16, the talented youngsters voiced their concerns, asking grown-ups to take note and “stop hurting our planet.” Kids Choir: Please change the story, we are the parts, this beautiful Earth cannot be lost. Stop hurting our planet, like you don’t care. There’s only one world, for us to share. Host: Written in 2019 by the choir’s co-founder Sim Macaulay with his mother Dorry, the song “SOS from the Kids” has been performed at climate rallies and even caught the attention of renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough, who wrote them a note saying: “Thank you for all you are doing to help tackle the problem.” God bless you, SOS From the Kids, Sim and Dorry Macaulay, and all involved for making a stand for our precious world. In Heaven’s wisdom, may all humanity heed the call and step up to save our planetary home through conscientious, moral choices with respect to all beings and Mother Nature. Supreme Master Ching Hai:“Lovingly present the Shining World Hero Award to SOS From the Kids, and US$10,000 in humble support of your noble and sincere efforts, with all love, heartfelt gratitude, best wishes and high praises. May Heavens forever watch over and protect you, in Divine benevolence.”

Coming up, German ingredient supply company introduces vegan sausage recipe. We’ll take a moment to read a meaningful poem and savor its gift of truth and beauty. More comforting news coming up on Supreme Master Television. Welcome back to Noteworthy News - Heart-warming News for a Joyful World.
International plant-based ingredients supplier develops vegan sausage recipe.
German-based Loryma has developed a vegan bratwurst sausage recipe that uses the company’s wheat proteins and binding ingredients, as well as a plant-based sausage casing – a thin edible covering – supplied by Spain-headquartered manufacturer Viscofan. The recipe can be used by Loryma’s customers to create their own sausages, or modified to produce other items. Loryma notes that their wheat protein ingredients are good for the environment as the plants absorb large amounts of CO2 while growing, and are locally sourced while achieving a 99% raw material utilization. Way to go, Loryma, on your vegan sausage recipe that will help food producers supply delicious and environmentally friendly food. May your endeavor help to rapidly expand the manufacturing of vegan protein products as all people move towards a plant-based lifestyle, in the Heart of the Divine.
Rodents help to save lives with extraordinary olfactory abilities.
Since 2000, Belgian non-governmental organization, Anti-Personnel Landmines Removal Product Development (APOPO), has been training southern giant pouch rats from its headquarters in Tanzania to detect land mines. Dubbed the HeroRATs, the trained “super-sniffers” can assess 200 square meters of a minefield in twenty minutes, while humans with metal detectors would need between one to four days. To date, the friendly and intelligent HeroRATs, who happily provide their assistance for food rewards, have sniffed out over 107,000 landmines and unexploded ordnances in countries including Angola, Cambodia, Colombia, Mozambique, Tanzania and Zimbabwe, thus making the land safe for nearly a million people and opening it up for productive use. Additionally, the life-saving rodents are found to improve tuberculosis detection rates by up to 40%. Many thanks, APOPO, and big hugs for our super HeroRATs. In Celestial splendor, may we always be grateful for the many amazing talents of our animal friends that help us in countless ways.
It’s now time for some light-hearted humor with the joke of the day entitled “Helpful Friend.”
“I think the blinker signal on my car is broken. Could you please stand behind the car? When I turn it on, tell me if the blinker’s working.”
“All right, sure!”
“Is it working?”
“Yes!... No! Yes! No! Yes! No…”
