European Union provides food aid to Eswatini.
The European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) of the EU contributed €1.4 million to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP). The funding will be used to increase the number of beneficiaries of the WFP’s cash transfer system from 20,000 to 94,000 vulnerable families in Manzini, Lubombo and Hhohho regions. Each person receives a monthly transfer of about €7.20, or €36 for a family of five, which can be used to buy items of their choice from local stores. The WFP is attempting to halt food insecurity and severe malnutrition in children and those affected by chronic illnesses, COVID-19, and the reduced harvest in 2020. The European Union is a Shining World Leadership Award for Peace recipient, and a Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, Unconditional World Care and True Caring laureate. Our heartfelt gratitude, European Union, for your generous donation. Also, many thanks, World Food Programme! May the fine people of Eswatini soon thrive in a kind vegan world where all have an abundance of food and love, in Divine shelter.
Scientists discover first ever comet with aurora.
Comet 67P/Churyumov– Gerasimenko, which orbits the Sun between the orbits of Earth and Jupiter, has been found to have a glowing ultraviolet aurora. After analyzing data from the European Space Agency’s Rosetta space probe, researchers from the Imperial College London in the United Kingdom uncovered the anomaly. Auroras are normally known to be created by ionized particles interacting with a celestial body’s magnetic field, making this one very unusual since the comet does not have one. Scientists think the comet’s aurora is likely the product of electrons from the solar winds coming into contact with the gases from the comet. What a remarkable finding, Imperial College London scientists! In Heavenly wonder, may your fascinating research into the expanses of space help humanity to live in awe and appreciation of the magnificence of the universe and creation.

Hi there, I’m Howie the vegan Hawksbill Turtle. I'm so lucky and happy because no animal fears me. I’m plant-based only! I have a household tip to share with you! Here’s a simple way to fold a T-shirt quickly. First, place the shirt face up horizontally so that the neckline is on your right. Then, identify three points on the side of the shirt farthest from you. A is the midpoint of the shoulder, B is the midpoint between the top and bottom of the shirt, and C is the bottom seam. These three points form a straight line along the length of the shirt. Then, pinch point A with your right hand and point B with your left hand. While lifting point B, move your right hand around your left hand to pinch point C. Finally, spread your arms quickly, gently shake the shirt and lay it flat, then fold up the other side of the sleeve. Done! Easy and fast! Any short-sleeved shirt can be folded using this simple method. Try it! Lots of love for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet. For all of us humans and all co-inhabitants alike. And thank you for watching. Now, the weather around the world.
Hong Kong researchers develop antibacterial and antiviral mask.
Dr. Ye Ruquan and team of researchers from the City University of Hong Kong have developed a new type of face mask that effectively deactivates bacteria and two species of human coronaviruses. The mask is made from graphene, which can be produced economically with a CO2 infrared laser, and is expected to cost less than an N95 mask. The material deactivated 82% of the bacteria tested, while 90% of two species of human coronaviruses were inactivated within five minutes, and 99.99% within 10 minutes under the sun. On commonly used mask materials of activated carbon fiber and melt-blow fabrics, 90% of the bacteria still remained even after eight hours. The scientists plan to test the masks with the COVID-19 virus in the future. Our accolades and appreciation, Dr. Ye Ruquan and co-researchers, for your amazing new mask. Wishing you much success in advancements to ensure the safety of ourselves and those around us, in the care and protection of the Providence.
Paris expands free public transport.
Paris, France has made traveling on the city’s bus and train network free of charge for those under the age of 18. The city also offers no-cost transport for people over 65, which was introduced in 2018 for children under 11 and for differently-abled young people. The Green Party Paris Transit Commissioner envisions that in the future transport will be free for all people in the city, as other nations and regions have also adopted similar policies. Thank you, Paris, for making travel even more convenient. May your dignified citizens and all who journey through your fine city be shielded in God’s light.
Courageous United Kingdom girl swims in English Channel to raise money for wildlife.
Eleven-year-old Ruby Yelling recently swam 2.6 kilometers through the English Channel without a wetsuit to raise money for the World Wide Fund for Nature’s (WWF’s) endangered species fund. WWF is a Shining World Compassion Award recipient. The impressive distance was the furthest Ruby had ever swum, and she completed it successfully and in good spirits. Through her JustGiving page, she raised over £2,080 from 136 supporters. Speaking about the endangered species list, she stated “...now we need to make a change because otherwise more species will be added to this list and it will get bigger and bigger unless we change our ways.” Selfless Ruby Yelling, we applaud your brave and noble venture to raise money for the treasured animals of our planet. God bless you. May your actions inspire people to do all they can to support and protect our beloved animal friends, in Heaven’s grace. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully present the Shining World Compassion Award to Ruby Yelling and lovingly chips in US$10,000 to support her noble fundraiser, with a big hug, lots of love and praises. May Heaven bless and shield you as you continue to inspire others with your caring heart.
Coming up, TV ad promoting veganism launches in Israel. We’ll spend some time now to be grateful for our moral compass, guiding us to make the right decision at the right time for the right reasons. More valuable news coming up on Supreme Master Television. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Beneficial News for a Favorable World.
Vegan television ad reaches 35% of Israel’s population.
A vegan advertisement that was created by international non-profit, Vegan Friendly, was viewed by more than three million people in Israel. The advertisement shows a couple shopping for lamb, and when they ask for extra-fresh lamb, the butcher brings out a live baby sheep, which he hands to the lady. The baby snuggles into the shoulder of the shocked woman. The message “Make the Connection” ends the 60-second commercial, which has gone viral in Israel and received many positive comments such as, “This should be shown in schools” and “I hope the ad will make a big change. Go vegan! All sentient beings deserve rights!” Our gratefulness and Heaven bless you, Vegan Friendly, for helping to awaken the compassion in many hearts. In Divine mercy, we pray that all people soon realize that the vegan diet is the only humane way to live.
Online system uses technology to protect precious cetaceans.
Ocean scientists from a number of institutions in the United States have developed Whale Safe to help shipping vessels avoid collisions with whales. Currently being deployed in the Santa Barbara Channel off the coast of California in the United States, Whale Safe utilizes multiple technologies including: an acoustic detection system that monitors for whale calls, a mobile app that allows scientists to record sightings, and near real-time forecasts of whale positions based on ocean conditions. These are used to produce a map of whale locations. Shipping companies can voluntarily register for the system and will be updated daily. Thank you, Whale Safe scientists, for your innovative work. May we all do our utmost to protect the beautiful cetaceans who unconditionally bless our planet with their loving energy, in God’s radiance.
Laughter is always good for us, so let’s enjoy this joke together. It’s entitled “Aged to Perfection.”
The average age of people living in the Sunny Retirement Community is 85. Recently, a resident turned 100, and a big birthday party was thrown. Even his son turned up.
“How old are you?” One tenant asked the son.
“I’m 81 years old.”
The tenant shook her head.
“They sure grow up fast, don’t they?”
And now we have a heartline from Xiao-Yu in China:
Hallo, dearest Master! At this instance, I, Your disciple, am very upset because I feel that You’ve been gravely wronged. Sometimes I hear people say that You are a spiritual practitioner and yet You engage in business. I feel very upset and ask them: Is it appropriate to go begging in this era? What wrong is there for Her to earn clean money in order to help people? You are always quietly helping the world and yet have to shoulder groundless accusations. That reminds me of many ancient Saints: Jesus Christ, who loved selflessly but was crucified; Confucius, who visited six states offering his service but was pushed away; and many others. I sincerely pray that the sentient beings in this world will become more and more enlightened and stop harboring criticisms and biased thoughts in their minds.
You have always been my guiding light, offering selfless Love to the multitude. When I saw You in 2017, You looked so exhausted. Yet, to satisfy the longing of the disciples, You delivered a discourse late into the night. At that time, one sentence was deeply imprinted in my mind: We should strive hard every minute and second for the sentient beings in this world. Thank You very much, noble Master, and the selfless Supreme Master TV team. We sincerely pray that more sentient beings will be awakened so that they can repay Your abundant love. I believe 2020 is a year of awakening, and the world will be full of more positive energy and loving friendships. Xiao-Yu from China
Dearest Xiao-Yu, Thank you for sharing your heartline with us.
Master has a reply for you: “Considerate Xiao-Yu, do not trouble yourself about what others might say, Heavens know and see everything, but most humans do not, though it’s all plain clear with all logic and reason! Although I live frugally all the time, despite how it seems on the outside (up to date, in a space of 4 x 6 meters, prepared for me and dogs, included a “kitchen,” “wet room,” “office,” “bedroom,” and “laundry room” all together), I still have costs to pay! Just stick to your diligent practice and all will be well. We must always put love and positivity into the world whenever possible. Praise God that we can be humble tools. But if you want to explain for your own peace of mind, tell them that they have a point, I also do not enjoy the heavy burden of doing business. But I don’t feel right to just enjoy being served while others have to toil for me. And because of my self-commitment to help suffering beings in this world, which incurs a lot of expenses, plus a Television to run, many dependents to take care of, thus many hundreds of thousands of US dollars to pay monthly, should I then oblige my disciples and/or taxpayers to shoulder all of that??? And the financial business loss during this pandemic time as well?? Ask them if they have a better idea?? But do not get upset. We are not doing anything to get praised. People just don’t understand what I do anyway. Thanks and Love you a lot for being good and for practicing well, thus helping the world. Heaven’s peace to you and abundant China.”
