World Health Organization (WHO) calls for epidemic preparedness.
WHO’s director-general, the Honorable Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, recently observed that the way most people are dealing with COVID-19 is “dangerously short-sighted” because they are not addressing the root causes. He said that unless we recognize the close connections between animal welfare and human health, and if we do not curb climate change, the future will bring more deadly diseases that we will not be prepared for. The UN health chief stated that by learning lessons from the current pandemic and investing in public health, “we can ensure that our children and their children inherit a safer, more resilient and more sustainable world.” Thank you, Dr. Tedros, for your insightful advice to humanity. In the guidance of the Providence, we pray for a rapid global transition to compassionate, plant-based living that will bring lasting peace to the planet.

Hallo, cheerful friends, how are you today? I’m Tonya the vegan Tamandua. It’s a wonderful life, for all beings. So live and let live – be vegan! Here’s a useful tip if you’re a driver. A dashboard console pad can grip your phone and let you keep both hands on the steering wheel. Commonly marketed as “sticky pads,” they can also be used to mount a GPS device or keep your glasses from falling on the floor. If the pad gets dusty and loses its adhesion after a while, simply clean it off with water, dry and reapply. This way you won’t have to worry about loose items being scattered the next time you need to suddenly change your car’s speed or direction. Thank you for your attention. And love you for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet thus save the world! Now, the global weather.
Korean firm shifts emphasis to sustainability and the international market.
CJ CheilJedang, the country’s leading food and biotech business, is preparing to mass-produce plastic items using polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA). It is the only synthetic organic polymer that is 100% biodegradable, and only a few companies in the world have the know-how and equipment to produce it. CJ CheilJedang will add a PHA line to its biotechnology plant in Pasuruan, Indonesia, with an annual capacity of 5,000 tons. Global enterprises interested in replacing petrochemical products with eco-friendly alternatives have already placed orders that exceed the factory’s first-year output. Congratulations, CJ CheilJedang, on your smart move! In Heaven’s upliftment, we anticipate the mainstream use of biodegradable plastics and the reappearance of a pristine environment.
New medical technology gives injured musician an unimagined opportunity.
João Carlos Martins, an acclaimed Brazilian classical pianist, lost the use of his fingers more than two decades ago. The maestro thought he would never perform again. But a benevolent industrial designer, named Ubiratan Bizarro Costa, took inspiration from the spring suspension system in Formula 1 race cars and created a pair of exoskeletal gloves that enable the artist’s fingers to extend and retract responsively. Making music once more is a dream come true for Mr. Martins, who told international news agency Reuters, “To be able to use all ten fingers again more than 20 years later is a miracle for me at the age of 80.” God bless you, Mr. Costa, for inventing the magical gloves, and three cheers, Mr. Martins! May your talent shine again for many to enjoy, in Celestial radiance.
Youngster enters burning building to rescue toddler.
Chris and Nicole Davidson of Tennessee, USA, were awakened in the middle of the night by the smell of smoke and realized their house was on fire.

Townspeople elect puppy to be their new leader.

It’s time for a merry moment with the joke of the day entitled, “False Familiarity.”
Eddie was feeling weak and started doing everything more slowly. At 60, he didn’t know whether it was just his age catching up to him or something more serious. So he asked his friend to recommend a good doctor.
“I know a great one, but she’s quite expensive. She charges $400 for the first visit and $100 for follow-up appointments.”
Eddie decided to try his friend’s doctor and thought of a way to avoid paying full price for the initial consultation. As he entered the examination room, he greeted the doctor with:
The doctor proceeded to ask questions and do some muscle testing. After a few minutes, she gave her assessment:
“Very good. Just continue the treatment I prescribed last time.”
And now we have a heartline from Sophie in Taiwan, also known as Formosa:
Hallo, most beloved and respected Master! Master has said that the COVID-19 viruses have souls, and these souls came from animals that were slaughtered by humans. Therefore, the viruses are able to think and mutate continuously to attack humankind. I have the ability to communicate with animals; therefore, the souls of many pitifully slaughtered animals talked to me about their immense agony and fear before they were killed. Because they were cruelly slaughtered by humans, they wanted to take revenge by creating a massive disaster for humankind. However, when will such revenge and killing end? Some of our fellow initiates in China, Taiwan (Formosa) and Korea have taken the initiative to pray for the slaughtered animals in the world and those soon to be slaughtered. We also shared an intangible message with animals by extending loving kindness and comfort and advising them that revenge is not the best solution. We wish they would choose the best path for their souls, that is, renounce hatred and follow Master to Heaven. Thus, the cycle of karmic transmigration of retaliation and mutual killing can be diminished. Upon hearing these words of love, many animals have expressed their wish to lay down their hatred for humans, to stop seeking revenge, and to follow Master to Heaven. However, they also expressed their inner thoughts to humans: “You told us that it’d be good for us if we stop taking revenge and renounce hatred. But, wouldn’t it be better if you stop eating us? How much effort have you humans contributed? Are you humans willing to let us live?” Through the positive energy of the Supreme Master TV broadcast, we wish to share with everyone the sincere voices of animals, “May all humans quit eating meat and switch to a vegan diet.” Let us free animals from incessant suffering. May Divine Peace be with our Supreme Master! Respectfully, Sophie from Taiwan (Formosa)
Gifted Sophie, Thank you for the heartline. Our appreciation to you and the other disciples for praying for and communicating with the animals. We wish to send our love and prayers to our animal friends as well. May the day soon come when all beings coexist harmoniously.
Master has a message for you: “Conscientious Sophie, my thanks to you and your brothers and sisters for working diligently for the animals and the world through different means. It is heartbreaking to hear the animals’ pleas for mercy as their lives quickly end in anguish and torture just to please people’s palates. Let us pray to Heavens for humans to awaken soon to their inherent loving, benevolent self-nature so that all beings can enjoy a manifested Eden on Earth, in kindness and respect. May you and vigilant Taiwan (Formosa) be protected by the Buddha’s infinite grace.”
