In today’s news, European Union delivers emergency food aid in North Africa, COVID-19 virus found to survive on grocery items we bring into our homes, researchers develop cost-effective and powerful battery from sea salt, Germany proposes updated citizenship laws for foreign residents, Cypriot police officer saves unconscious driver, food service business in North America goes completely vegan, and Canada certifies 14 new “bird-friendly cities.”
European Union (EU) provides aid to food-deprived people in Sahel region.
The EU is furnishing assistance to vulnerable persons in locations where food access is being obstructed in northern Africa’s Sahel region. Conflict in Burkina Faso has led to approximately one million people facing restricted movement and depleted food supplies. Convoys of food deliveries to the city of Sebba have been limited and also faced attacks, with residents being confined to traveling only within one kilometer of the city. The European Commission has allotted €52.6 million for humanitarian relief and 800 metric tons of vital provisions will be delivered over the coming months via helicopter airbridge flights. The European Union is a recipient of four Shining World Leadership Awards for Humanitarianism, two Shining World Leadership Awards for Peace, and a Shining World Leadership Award for Earth Protection; as well as a laureate of two Shining World Leadership Awards for Humanitarianism, and Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, Unconditional World Care and True Caring. Our heartfelt appreciation, European Union, for your ongoing support. We pray for peaceful solutions and abundance for the vibrant people of North Africa, in Allah’s merciful Upliftment.
COVID-19 virus survives on groceries.
A new study conducted by the United Kingdom’s Food Standards Agency (FSA) found that the virus behind the global pandemic is able to survive on the surface of commonly sold grocery items. In the laboratory study, researchers purposely deposited the virus on surfaces in the quantity produced by a nearby person sneezing or coughing. They then observed the virus’ survival rate at different temperatures and humidity levels that mimic various storage methods. The results showed that the SARS-CoV-2 virus was able to survive up to one week on some vegetables and packaging and even longer on refrigerated deli items like chilled animal-person-derived meats and cheese, with processed meats still harboring the virus 21 days later. Fortunately, most surfaces tested saw a major decrease within 24 hours. The study has prompted recommendations for standard hygiene procedures like hand washing and cleaning surfaces well before engaging in food preparation, including washing fresh produce. Our gratitude, UK’s Food Standards Agency, for this helpful information. May we cultivate good food hygiene habits and adopt the vibrant vegan lifestyle for glowing health, in Heaven’s radiance. “Vegan: cos we don’t want hell on Earth.”
Up next, researchers develop cost-effective and powerful battery from sea salt. We will just thank animal service officers who not only help rescue and care for animal-people but also respond to issues related to animal friend welfare and suggest solutions to the public to improve animal-folk well-being.

Good day, compassionate friends! I’m Levi, a vegan gal from the Lesser Mouse-deer kingdom. Despite my small size, I have a big heart and I’m always radiating light due to my benevolent lifestyle. And this is such an invaluable treasure! Here is a beneficial tip on how to make a rocket stove by utilizing recycled cans. This kind of cooking device is ideal not only because it’s inexpensive, efficient and uses minimal wood to produce strong heat, but also because it creates very little smoke. First, take off the ends of two empty vegetable cans. Then, using tin snips, cut a “U” shape from the side of the can. Next, use the bottom of the vegetable can to trace the outline of it on the side of an empty coffee can approximately 1.3 centimeters from the bottom. Cut out the entire circle using tin snips and remove it. Then, set the vegetable can containing the cutout inside the coffee can. Face the hole on its side to align with the hole on the side of the coffee can. Place the other vegetable can through the opening on the side of the coffee can and into the opening of the smaller can to create the firebox and chimney. Fill the coffee can approximately halfway with pebbles, gravel, and sand, but make sure you don’t drop them into the center can. The firebox and chimney will stay firmly in place like this, in addition to keeping the exterior of the stove from getting too hot. Now, it’s all ready for cooking a meal! Thank you for your attention and lots of love for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all humans and us all co-inhabitants. Now, the worldwide weather.
Researchers develop new cost-effective battery from sea salt.
Led by Dr. Shenlong Zhao from the University of Sydney, Australia, a team has created a battery capable of storing four times more energy than lithium batteries. It is constructed from sodium-sulphur, a type of melted salt that can be processed from sea water, making it more environmentally friendly and costing much less to produce than current options. Batteries are essential for the shift towards renewable energy resources such as wind and solar. They provide a reliable source of energy when the sun is not shining and there is no breeze. Our accolades, Dr. Shenlong Zhao and colleagues, for your breakthrough findings. In God’s immense Grace, may this further help lead the way towards achieving greater clean and sustainable energy capacity for the world.
Easier requirements for foreign residents to acquire German citizenship proposed.
The lower house of the German parliament (Bundestag) has passed a package of immigration reforms that would allow foreigners who have legal residency in Germany to apply for citizenship faster. Under the proposal, applicants would need to have resided in the country for a minimum of five years, rather than the current eight, and not have a criminal record. Dual citizenship would be permitted and children born in Germany to a parent who had resided in the nation for five years would get automatic German citizenship. Our respect, Bundestag, f or seeking to create pathways for those who aim to make your lovely country their permanent home. In the blessings of the Providence, may all in Germany enjoy lives of dignity and peace.
Police officer in Cyprus averts accident and saves unconscious driver.
An off-duty police officer from Limassol in Cyprus, recently saved a man who had fallen unconscious while driving and whose car was heading towards oncoming traffic. The officer noticed the vehicle was traveling on the wrong side of the road, with what appeared to be no driver. He jumped into the car through the window and saw the man was unconscious on the passenger's seat. He quickly took control of the car, preventing a potentially serious accident, and then called an ambulance for the man. Way to go, observant Cypriot police officer, for bravely saving the unconscious driver and ensuring safety on the road. In the grace of Heaven, may the afflicted gentleman soon recover and regain good health and the diligent police officer continue to be protected while saving many more lives.

Canada announces newly certified “bird-friendly cities.”
As part of its dedication to safeguarding beautiful bird-people and their habitats, which are an important part of life in Canada, 14 cities have been designated as “bird-friendly” by Nature Canada, a non-profit working with the national government. In these locations, residents are increasing safety for bird-folk by applying special treatment to large windows to prevent accidental collisions, avoiding the use of pesticides, and monitoring stray cat-people. Locals are also encouraged to protect natural habitats and share with others the immense joy of living with bird-people in their communities. The federal government has partnered with non-profit organizations, indigenous people, municipalities, and provincial and territorial governments in working to keep our gorgeous avian-angels safe. This will help allow bird-people to safely continue carrying out their important role in maintaining healthy ecosystems in Canada. Canada is a Shining World Leadership Award for Animal Protection recipient, and a laureate of five Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, two Shining World Leadership Awards for Protection, and a Shining World Leadership Award for Caring. Thank you so much, Canadian government, Nature Canada, and all partners involved, for helping to keep our bird friends protected. May you bravely continue spreading this spirit, in God’s tender Care.
Now, it's time to let hilarity take the stage as the joke of the day is waiting. It's entitled, “Engine Trouble.”
An airplane was having some engine trouble. So, the pilot instructed the cabin crew to tell the passengers to take their seats and prepare for an emergency landing. After a few minutes, the pilot asked the flight attendant:
“Is everyone secured and ready?”
“All set back here, Captain, except the lawyers. They are still going around passing out business cards.”
And now we have a heartline from Chih-Yuan in Taiwan, also known as Formosa:
The Great Power of the Five Holy Names and the Gift.
Thank You, Master, for endowing me with the Five Holy Names and the Gift. My father passed away because of a cerebral stroke. Though he was very kindhearted while living, he was often lazy and just wanted to be reborn into Paradise quickly. After his passing, I had a dream in which I felt that Master told me to use the great Power of the Five Holy Names and the Gift to guide my father to be liberated from suffering.
I found where my father was, which was a lower realm, and he was waiting to be sorted and arranged regarding where to go. I began to silently recite the Five Holy Names and the Gift. In the middle of my reciting, my father suddenly appeared from a room where he had been sorted and began reciting the Five Holy Names and the Gift with me. His astral body was originally dark and burned, with scars and residue of charcoal, and his head had traces of being hit by bullets. After reciting the Five Holy Names, his soul began to shine, freed from the shackle of the dark astral body, and flew upward to exit the jail. I saw that his astral body became very bright, not looking dark and burnt anymore.
Through my wisdom eye, I searched for the new place where my father went, while being awed by the Power of the Five Holy Names and the Gift that Master endowed us with. I flew to a beautiful realm where all the males looked very much like my father. There were many people, and I realized that they were my nine generations of ancestors. While some of them were playing basketball and some were in military uniforms, everybody was very happy, young, and beautiful. The place was surrounded by beautiful mountain villas that looked like Chinese courtyard houses, just as in a movie. My father happily told me that he had gotten a job, which was to help those soldiers, and he hoped I wouldn’t cry anymore. He was very happy, blissful, young, and healthy. I truly am very grateful to Master for imparting the great Power of the Five Holy Names and the Gift to us. Master has promised us that She’ll bring our five generations of ancestors to liberation. But actually, it’s not only five generations. It could be the ancestors of all our previous lives as well as relatives who are about to depart.
I am grateful to Master. During the time I worked for Supreme Master TV, Master gave me immense Grace by taking care of my father and animal friends, and also a more stable job, so that I could work for Master with peace of mind. Thank You, Master, for staying with us in this agonizing physical world and being there for us to rely on. May Master always be in good health and stay with us for a long, long time. May all fellow initiates strive to work together to help Master to usher in a glorious vegan world. Chih-Yuan from Taiwan (Formosa)
Caring Chih-Yuan, Our condolences on the loss of your father. We appreciate learning of how you were guided by Master to help your father to reach a place where he could be happy after he passed. It is comforting to know our loved ones are well cared for. Indeed, it is an immense Blessing to be entrusted with the Five Holy Names and Gift by our most Precious Master. May Heaven’s Light endlessly uplift you and splendid Taiwan (Formosa). In Universal Love, Supreme Master TV team
P.S. We joyfully relay Master’s reply to you: “Diligent Chih-Yuan, your father was very fortunate to have such a loving son who practices well and listens to his Master! Thus, these earned spiritual merits can be transformed and multiplied with added Master Power and Grace to help more of his loved ones, not just nine generations, but even friends, workmates and pets, etc... My loving thanks for your thoughtful good wishes. May the wisdom of the Buddhas help all beings find their true purpose in life, including your spirited Taiwanese (Formosan) co-citizens, so they too can be liberated from the suffering of the karmic transmigration cycle.”
