Rooftop hydroponics gardens project for Palestinian refugees in Jordan to be expanded.
A pilot project by UNICEF (the United Nations Children's Fund) to grow vegetables on ten rooftops of Jerash Camp in Jordan, which houses 31,000 Palestinian refugees, will be scaled up to 140 rooftops to supply vegetables to 280 households, with funding from the Netherlands. In particular, youth and women enrolled in the program will sell their surplus produce to local markets or restaurants to enhance their financial independence and inclusion.
Designed by camp resident and community organizer Mohammed Siyam and team, the farms are operated at a minimum of cost by recycling the same water multiple times and using a minimum of electricity to pump water. The Netherlands is a Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion and Humanitarianism recipient, and a Shining World Leadership Awards for Earth Guardian and Animal Protection laureate. Many thanks, the Netherlands and UNICEF. Also, our appreciation, Mohammed Siyam and team for your excellent eco-friendly design. May refugees around the world be supported to find sufficiency and stability, especially during COVID-19, in Heaven’s boundless mercy.
Japanese supercomputer calculates that humidity levels affect airborne COVID-19 virus particles.
A study by research giant RIKEN and Kobe University, both in Japan, using the Fugaku supercomputer completed a simulation and has determined that higher humidity levels decrease the amount of airborne aerosol particles containing the COVID-19 virus. It was found that when the humidity levels were low, 30% or less, there were twice as many aerosolized particles in the air as when the humidity was higher, 60% or more. The researchers suggested that in places where it is not possible to open windows, humidifiers should be used during the drier winter months to increase humidity levels indoors. Our appreciation, RIKEN and Kobe University researchers, for your life-protecting suggestions to help limit COVID-19 transmission. May all humans practice love in every corner of their life to ensure the end of COVID-19 and all the other consequences of meat consumption, following the loving example of the Divine.

Good day radiant viewers! I’m Bonnie the vegan Wild Boar, and I will let you in on my secret. Do you know why I feel so good? I am vegan! Have you ever accidentally rubbed your eyes and burned them while seeding a chili? Today, I have a cooking tip to share with you on how to safely remove the seeds. Just cut off the end stalk of the chili and hold it in the upright position. Rub the chili between your palms and the seeds will drop out. You can then chop it into rings or mince into finer pieces by placing one hand on top of the knife tip and the other on the handle, rocking it back and forth over the chili. A large knife will be best for this. Thank you for tuning in, and love you for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet thus save the world! Now the weather around the globe!
Ambulance service in the United Kingdom unveils eco-friendly emergency vehicles.
West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS), UK’s second largest emergency medical service, has taken the lead in reducing its carbon footprint by launching a fully electric ambulance. WMAS has teamed up with industry specialists using aircraft-style technical knowledge to create a state-of-the-art light ambulance. The design has a low center of gravity to help the stability of the vehicle and is powered by a 96kW lithium-ion battery pack neatly stored in the floor. The ambulance has a top speed of 120 kilometers per hour and a range of up to 177 kilometers, fully recharging in four hours. Before starting regular operation, the charge time will be reduced to two hours. Great work, West Midlands Ambulance Service, for taking an Earth-saving initiative! In God’s boundless wisdom, we pray that such ingenious innovations continue to help restore our precious planet.
Drones tested for organ transportation use.
Nevada Donor Network, an organ procurement organization, alongside autonomous transportation company MissionGO, both in the United States, have used unmanned aircraft to successfully deliver organs, carrying kidneys on a record flight of 16.5 kilometers across the Nevada desert. The drones have been specially designed by scientists at the University of Maryland in the US and will be able to deliver organs faster, with fewer delays, and with no carbon footprint compared to the commercial flights currently used. With a few hours delay possibly making the organ unsuitable for transplant, time is of the essence. Our heartfelt appreciation, MissionGO, Nevada Donor Network and University of Maryland scientists, for your forward-thinking initiative to help make organ transportation quicker, safer, and more efficient. In the loving guidance of the Providence may drones play a pivotal role in the success of many transplant operations.
Teenage girl Finnish Prime Minister for a day.
On Sunday October 11th, which was United Nations International Day of the Girl Child, 16-year-old Aava Murto took over the position of Finnish Prime Minister for a day to raise awareness of gender equality.

Coming up, United States survey finds growing number of people reduce consumption of animal products. It’s time for us to step outside to take a brief stroll in our neighborhood while breathing in the blessings from the fresh air. We’ll be right back with more comforting news here on Supreme Master Television. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Noble News for an Honorable World.
Americans increase their intake of plant-based food during the pandemic.
According to a recent survey conducted by market research company OnePoll on behalf of United States-based nutritional supplement company Herbalife Nutrition, 47% of American people began eating more plant-based foods during the COVID-19 pandemic. The modifications to diet ranged from eating more fruits and vegetables to decreasing and completely renouncing animal products, such as meat, eggs and dairy. When asked about the reason for change, more than half of respondents said they had more time to research about healthier food. In addition, a survey by Plant Based Foods Association and market research company SPINS found a 90% increase of plant-based food sales in mid-March 2020 compared to the same time period last year. Many thanks, Herbalife Nutrition, Plant Based Foods Association, OnePoll and SPINS, for this exciting news. We are gladdened that so many are moving toward the compassionate and healthy plant-based lifestyle ordained by Heaven.
Eco-friendly barrier system invented to protect sharks.
SharkSafe Barrier was invented by South African conservationist Michael Rutzen, Italian/South African marine biologist Dr. Sara Andreotti, American marine biologist Dr. Craig O’Connell, and South African conservationist Dr. Conrad Matthee as an alternative to conventional nets. It consists of multiple large recyclable polyethylene pipes that are anchored to the ocean floor and extend a meter above the water’s surface. This mimics the visual effects of a kelp forest, which sharks naturally do not like to enter. The barrier also contains large magnets which create a strong magnetic field, as this has been proven to be a deterrent for shark species. The team’s website reads: “It is our mission for the SharkSafe Barrier to be deployed worldwide… We hope to see our innovation moving the world into a greener direction.” Thank you, SharkSafe team members, for your noble work. In the goodwill of the Divine, may your invention soon be implemented across the world as we become dedicated guardians of all life on land and sea.
They say cheerfulness is like sunshine for your mind, so let’s lighten up with a joke of the day entitled “Boat Captain.”
Liam was hoping to become a captain, so he applied for a job as boat captain.
“Can you swim?”
“No, not really.”
“Don't you know that the first requirement for a boat captain is that you must know how to swim?!”
“And what about a pilot? Must pilots fly before applying for the job?”
And now we have a heartline from Taraneh in Iran:
I light up a lantern to search for the way back Home.
I am walking, where the only sound which can be heard is that of the ocean waves hitting on the large rocks on the shore.
The light of the lantern is flickering. But even in this flickering light, I will find my way.
Many passers-by are walking along. Will my flickering light also lead them to the destination?
Bellies are the graveyards of innocent animals. Hands are tainted with blood. Eyes are blind. The blood-eating tradition has blindfolded the eye from seeing the truth.
As I get closer to the destination, the light of my lantern becomes more stable and brighter.
I kneel, I pray. I wish my companions find the light of the lantern and wake up to the truth of the blood-eating habit.
I wish that the sky would become full of light, the Milky Way would sparkle, the Earth would be engulfed with light, peace and brotherhood would replace the bloody eating.
I wish Mother Earth could rest for a while from being stained with the blood of her innocent children. I wish…
Dedicated to Her Holiness, Ultimate Master, Tim Qo Tu, and all Supreme Master’s devoted initiate sisters and brothers all over the world. Taraneh from Iran
Brilliant Taraneh, We thank you for your heart-rendering poem. If humanity would only remember our unfathomable, inherent wisdom, we would live in paradise by tomorrow. May the lantern’s light that your poem speaks of inspire people worldwide to step into a new era of peace and mutual understanding between all species. Wishing you and esteemed Iran Allah’s eternal protection, Supreme Master TV team
P.S. Master has a response for you: “Tender-hearted Taraneh, it is very evident that your deeply thoughtful composition was written with a profound love for all beings. Pray for World Vegan and ask those around you to do so as well so that our planet’s inhabitants quickly realize the utter senselessness of killing and that preservation of life is paramount. Allah’s grace to you and the good people of Iran.”
