Up next, green energy production increasing in United Kingdom. Let’s pause to thank the brilliant music arrangers, who bring musical pieces to life with the best harmonization of instruments and voices. We will return with more rewarding news after these messages here on Supreme Master Television.
Hallo, vibrant viewers, it’s Buna the Farlowella! I encourage you all to be cool vegans – like me! Today, I have a healthy cooking tip for you. Science has confirmed that the ancient spice turmeric has medicinal qualities. The active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, has been associated with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects in humans. Studies indicate that turmeric may ease the persistent inflammatory symptoms of chronic diseases like arthritis. Turmeric has also been correlated with enhanced memory and mental health. You can easily incorporate turmeric to the rice you cook by adding 1 teaspoon of turmeric for every 1 cup of raw rice. You’ll notice a yellow-golden rice color with a nice subtle taste. Thank you and love you so much for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all of us humans and all co-inhabitants alike. And thanks for tuning in. Now, the weather around the world!
Renewables become United Kingdom’s top energy source.
According to a new report by UK-headquartered energy market analysis company EnAppSys, renewable energy plants supplied 45% of the country’s electricity output from January through March 2020 – more than that of fossil fuels, for the first time ever. High levels of wind production contributed to this achievement, along with decreased power demand in March due to precautionary stay-at-home measures from the coronavirus outbreak. Green energy will likely become the country’s norm even more in the future thanks to the growing number of onshore and offshore wind farms. Thank you for this encouraging report, EnAppSys. What a great accomplishment, United Kingdom! May we see more and more green actions bear fruit for our beautiful planet, in Divine benevolence.
Study finds climate mitigation brings economic benefits worldwide.
Researchers from the Beijing Institute of Technology and other Chinese institutions examined the costs and benefits to individual countries as they implemented their national plans to curb greenhouse gas emissions. The conclusion was that every country on Earth would derive economic gains from maintaining global warming within the bounds established in the 2015 Paris climate accord. However, if temperatures rose beyond those limits, the worldwide economy would lose US$150 trillion to almost US$800 trillion by the year 2100. The study serves as both a warning against inaction and motivation for governments to work together to stay on course. Our gratefulness, Beijing Institute of Technology and collaborating scientists. In Heaven’s grace, may governments worldwide take all measures to protect our present and future generations, starting with the enactment of Vegan Law.
United Nations agency pays tribute to frontline Afghan Turkmen refugee doctor serving in Pakistan.
In a social media post, The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) commended 29-year-old gynecologist Dr. Saleema Rehman, who has been dedicatedly serving underprivileged patients during the pandemic at the Holy Family Hospital in Pakistan. Dr. Saleema Rehman is the first female Afghan Turkmen refugee to become a doctor in Pakistan, her host country. Overcoming many barriers, and with her family’s encouragement, Dr. Rehman was able to enroll in a refugee school supported by the UNHCR before completing her studies at a Pakistani medical school. She said, “I decided that I had to make a change and set an example… that a refugee could be fruitful not only for his community but also for the host country...” You are truly an inspiration, Dr. Saleema Rehman. With gratitude and prayers for your protection, may Allah bless you and the people of your gracious host country of Pakistan.
Coming up, Singaporean company to develop vegan seafood. We’ll spend some time now to pray for all the world’s vulnerable children to grow and play in safety and freedom. Supreme Master Television will return in just a moment with more exceptional news. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Supporting News for a Connected World.
Singapore-based company to produce vegan seafood products.
Veg food innovator Growthwell Group has raised US$8 million to open a plant food technology center in Singapore that will use chickpea protein from Israeli company ChickP. Growthwell plans to develop Asian-style vegan meat and dairy alternatives, along with plant-based squid, crab patties and shrimp. These products will be exported to Asia-Pacific markets such as Australia and China. Their new offerings are also a response to the need for a more secure food system, as problems with meat production were recently made more apparent by the COVID-19 pandemic. This is wonderful news, Growthwell Group. Best wishes on your new plant-based food items that will help to accelerate the global vegan trend, in Celestial glory.
Major American city to end horse-drawn carriage rides.
In a landmark ruling, the Chicago City Council has passed a ban on horse-drawn carriage operations in the city, starting January 1, 2021. The ordinance stops the issuance of new licenses and the renewal of the 10 remaining licenses, which are set to expire at the end of 2020. For years, animal rights groups, including Chicago Alliance for Animals and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), have supported this progressive ban on the inhumane industry, in which horses are often forced to endure tight bridles, heavy loads, and unfavorable traffic and weather conditions. PETA, a Shining World Compassion Award recipient, expressed its hope that this “kinder, carriage-free city” will inspire others to follow suit. Our sincere appreciation, Chicago City Council, for this law granting respect and dignity to the majestic equines. May all governments protect the welfare of our beloved animal friends, in God’s eternal kindness. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gratefully present the Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion to Chicago City Council, with high salute and heartfelt gratitude for your benevolent ruling, in Heaven’s abundant blessings.”
Laughter is truly the best medicine, and it's free, so here’s a joke for today called, “School Lunch.”
Do you provide enough food rich in nutrients during school lunch?
Our school lunches are full of iron, which is essential for children.
That’s why they are so difficult to chew!
And now we have a heartline from Xiao Lian in China:
Dear Supreme Master Ching Hai and the TV working team, hallo! I am an initiate in China. Thanks to Master, Supreme Master TV was relaunched on October 3, 2017. I was very happy and extremely excited. My whole family likes to watch Supreme Master TV programs very much. It’s broadcasted 24- hours a day, allowing my whole family to feel the love and blessings and to be connected to God all the time. I love every program since every one of them is mind-soothing and eye-pleasing. In the program Between Master and Disciples, Master teaches the importance of love and compassion and that only love can change everything. This allows me to learn the Supreme Truth, to understand myself and to help others. The Animal World program teaches us to protect and care for the animals. The Planet Earth: Our Loving Home program teaches us the importance of environmental protection, and to protect the earth and nature. I hope that our world will become a vegan village, and from then on, there will be no more war and suffering, and harmony between people, and between humans and animals. Let us embrace nature and let us create an earth home that has love and compassion, wisdom and warmth. Only in this way can our world become more and more beautiful, and can our children and coming generations live in a heaven-like home. This is the life that we human beings should have. Thanks to Master for bringing Light to the humans on earth, and the beautiful future to the world. Thanks to the Supreme Master TV team for your selfless contribution and endeavor to bring Master’s blessings to every living being in the world. I wish that peace and harmony prevail in the world!
