Japan assists Libya with COVID-19 response.
Japan, a Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, Animal Protection and Generosity Laureate, pledged US$2.1 million to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) for a nine-month relief program in Libya. Partnering with the World Health Organization (WHO) and local authorities, UNICEF’s endeavor will help reduce virus transmission, lessen the pandemic’s effects for roughly 600,000 at-risk women and children, enhance its Risk Communication and Community Engagement action plan to safeguard an estimated 4.8 million vulnerable young ones and their families, and provide vital medical, water, hygiene, and sanitation supplies. Furthermore, it will continue essential health and nutrition services to youth, women, and communities in need. Many thanks Japan, UNICEF, and the World Health Organization for your compassion and generosity to the Libyan people. May the spiritual brothers and sisters of Libya live safe and joyous lives, in Allah’s infinite blessings.
Millionaires request higher taxes to help pandemic relief efforts.
In the wake of COVID-19, more than 80 millionaires under the name “Millionaires for Humanity,” have called on their respective governments to permanently raise taxes on wealthy individuals like themselves to ensure adequate funding for essential services, such as health care, education, and security. The benevolent persons, who include Walt Disney heiress Dr. Abigail Disney, come from the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, New Zealand, Canada, and the Netherlands. In an open letter acknowledging their privileged position and debt to coronavirus frontline workers, they state, “Our interconnectedness has never been more clear. We must rebalance our world before it is too late. There will not be another chance to get this right.” A standing ovation, Millionaires for Humanity! Prompted by voices like yours, may world governments take such compassionate measures to bolster citizen welfare and safety during these challenging times, in God’s grace.
Up next, small drone modeled on quick bird species built in Singapore. Let’s pause for a moment to thank the critical care nurses who lovingly look after patients with serious conditions in hospital emergency rooms, intensive care units, burn units and other departments. We will return with more comforting news, after these messages, here on Supreme Master Television.
Hallo adventurous viewers, I am Jarvis the vegan Yellowhead Jawfish. You know what makes me so cool? My cruelty-free vegan lifestyle! It’s healthy, it’s sustainable, it’s beautiful – it’s veganism! So, what are you waiting for? Give it a try! I’d like to share some cat safety tips with you today. If you have a new cat companion or have just moved to another home, make sure your cat friend does not go outside the house until they have adapted to the unfamiliar smells and surroundings. Cats usually need around three to four weeks to adjust to their new environment. When letting him or her out for the first time, accompany them and make sure it is a visit to a feline-friendly garden or enclosed outdoor space. Let them go out shortly before their feeding time so that when you call them, they are more likely to come back to find food. For their safety, please make sure your cat companion is also neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped before they are allowed outside. Thank you for your attention, and love you a lot for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all of us humans and all co-inhabitants alike. Now, the worldwide weather.
Drone mimicking one of world’s fastest bird species developed.
Dr. Yao-Wei Chin, and co-researchers from the National University of Singapore, collaborated with aerospace engineers from Taiwan, also known as Formosa, China, and Australia to develop a flapping wing drone that copies the swift, a fast-flying, agile bird. Mirroring the bird in shape and size, the ornithopter can hover on low power, glide, dive, climb, and stop quickly after rapid movement. Given the wing design, the device has potential for performing delicate jobs such as pollination in indoor vertical farms or keeping birds a safe distance from airports. The research project was published in the Science Robotics journal. Way to go, Dr. Yao-Wei Chin and all involved researchers, for your drone technology advancements, and our gratitude to the noble swift for providing a fine example of flight perfection. In Divine benevolence, may this tool help the continued progress of earth-friendly technology.
Israeli scientists discover carbon-sharing network between trees.
Researchers at Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science have found complex systems of fungi joining various tree species’ roots together. Using advanced sequencing techniques and underground devices to analyze more than 1,000 tree root tips of four tree species, the scientists learned that the networks exchange minerals, nutrients, water, and carbon between the trees, while channeling carbon to the fungi in return. This cooperation between trees, featuring resource-sharing facilitated by the fungi, could result in more resilient forests that can better handle adverse conditions such as drought, fire, or disease. Wow, great work Weizmann Institute scientists, for this truly amazing discovery of the unconditional bond between different kinds of trees who serve each other for their combined well-being. We pray that humanity can follow this wonderful example of collaboration as we move towards a more united world, in Heaven’s boundless glory.
Yacht racer to track microplastics in oceans.
In November 2020, French journalist and sailor Fabrice Amedeo will participate in the Vendée Globe, a round-the-world solo yacht race, where he will take ocean water samples for microplastic contamination testing. His vessel will be fitted with three filters of 300, 100, and 30 microns, which will have water pumped through them to trap microplastics. The devices will be changed every 12 hours, and analyzed when Mr. Amedeo returns after approximately 85 days. They will give valuable insight into the extent of plastic pollution in vast swathes of the oceans that have not yet been tested. Fabrice Amedeo, we appreciate your loving commitment to the beautiful seas, and this project which will aid us to better understand and care for them. May your voyage help encourage all people and companies to replace plastic with eco-friendly alternatives, in the Providence’s tender embrace.

Acclaimed chef praises vegan beef strips.
Canada-based Chef Hidekazu Tojo, inventor of the popular California Roll-style sushi, has given his stamp of approval to the Wagyu Plant-Based Teriyaki Strips – a new meat analog developed by Canadian food manufacturer Top Tier Foods in collaboration with Japanese partners. Among the first to sample the new plant protein, Chef Tojo said, “My first impression was this was real wagyu beef. It was incredibly tender… and seasoned very well. I am very impressed. It’s very close, it’s very difficult to tell the difference.” A soy-based alternative that lives up to gourmet standards, the vegan wagyu is now available at restaurants in Japan. The company also plans to ramp up production to meet consumer demand. Bravo, Top Tier Foods! Your innovative Wagyu Plant-Based Teriyaki Strips satisfies the palate as it spares our beautiful animal friends and precious planet, in Heaven’s love.
Wales bans wild animal use by traveling circuses.
The Welsh Parliament has joined 46 other countries, including England and Scotland, in prohibiting wild animals, such as elephants, lions, tigers and bears, in circus performances. Effective December 1, 2020, the Wild Animals and Circuses (Wales) Act states offenders can face unlimited fines. The historic new bill was unanimously passed after a public consultation on the draft Bill indicated 97% of the 6,500 respondents supported the legislation. The Honorable Lesley Griffiths, Minister for Environment, Energy and Rural Affairs, highlighted that “wild animals are sentient beings with complex needs,” and said the new legislation represents a “significant step forwards for wild animals in Wales and beyond.” Our respectful salute, the Honorable Lesley Griffiths and all Welsh Parliament members for advancing animal rights. May we always treat our majestic animal friends with respect and kindness, in Divine brilliance.
We laughed a lot with this joke, hope you will too. It’s entitled “A Doctor To Be.”
A father asked his 10-year-old son: “What do you want to be in life?”
“What skills do you have that a doctor needs?”
“A doctor’s handwriting.”
And now we have a heartline from Yu-He in Australia:
Dear Supreme Master Television team, In the late hours of the night after my arrival at the New Land Ashram on September 26, 2019, I was walking down the stairs of the Shaolin Temple with a sister initiate when suddenly, several dogs rushed down from the hill. Just as they reached the middle of the main courtyard, they met a fellow disciple walking towards the meditation hall. When the dogs stopped, I saw that the dog at the rear was raising his head and his whole body was glowing and encircled with a golden light. He looked so beautiful and agile. It crossed my mind that he must be Master’s guard dog, a Heavenly dog, a Celestial dog. Standing on the stairs, I could already feel their excitement and joy. While feeling happy that Master has these Divine dogs to protect Her, I also felt apologetic because our presence had disrupted their privilege of taking a stroll in the daytime. In the next instance, they were joyously dashing about like golden arrows shooting past our eyes. On the first morning after meditation in the Art Gallery, I casually looked out of the window and saw a very long and strange cloud. Looking at it carefully, I noticed that it was a giant dragon floating in the sky. It had an enormous head and huge eyes, with two puffs of finger-sized clouds streaming from its nostrils. It had a thin mustache with both ends curling upward on the two sides of its face. Its claws, long, huge body and tail were also visible. Above this cloud dragon were several small dragons. That was indeed a fantastic sight. The whole ashram was under the protection of the divine dragons. On the morning of my departure from the New Land Ashram, out of curiosity, I again looked out of the window. To my surprise, I again saw a fantastic scene, which moved me to joyous tears. There was a knight in full armor and a helmet, holding a long halberd and standing next to a horse. Next, I saw marine friends from the ocean. It’s a pity that I recognized so few of them: the seahorse, sea lion, huge sea turtle, crabs, shrimp and a huge fish that I could not identify. During this retreat at the New Land Ashram, every day I could feel the highest blessing and protection from Master and the many Gods. Even on my way downhill, I could feel the blessing from the rocks and tree gods on the roadside. Every day, I felt boundless gratitude to our dearest Master for Her selfless effort in elevating and benefiting all beings in the universe. May the auspicious cloud always be near Master. May all the Gods help Master to accomplish Her mission successfully. I further wish Master to be forever healthy, happy and beautiful! I also thank the wonderful Supreme Master Television for providing the world with a 24/7 broadcast of constructive, positive and beautiful news that elevates people’s body, mind and soul. May people of the world believe in and rely on God, and quickly follow Master on the right path toward Home. May the vegan world arrive soon and all beings enjoy peace! Yu-He from Sydney Center, Australia
Faithful Yu-He, We are happy that you have been blessed with so many blissful experiences during your stay at the New Land Ashram, and thank you for sharing them with the world. Supreme Master Ching Hai radiates endless Divine light around Her, attracting many beings to bathe in Her infinite elevating energy, and has many protectors to allow Her to accomplish Her mission unencumbered. When She succeeds, this planet will have been uplifted into a paradisiacal Earth, full of soothing love and peace. God’s favor be upon you and generous Australia, Supreme Master TV team
P.S. Master says: “Tranquil Yu-He, I am happy you had so many inner visions at the ashram and surely they brought you great comfort and peace. Please continue with your focused spiritual practice. May you and pleasant Australia enjoy the Divine’s eternal care.”
