Finland supports Iraq’s COVID-19 response.
The government of Finland has donated US$2.2 million to back the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Iraq’s COVID-19 response package. Carried out under the UNDP Iraq’s Funding Facility for Stabilization (FFS), the initiative will be used to provide personal protective equipment for healthcare staff, increase testing capacity, expand the number of isolation wards, and determine post-pandemic recovery measures. It will focus on vulnerable groups, such as displaced persons, women, the elderly and individuals with disabilities, and be implemented in hospitals in underserved areas. Since 2015, Finland has donated over US$12.1 million to UNDP Iraq’s FFS. Our earnest gratefulness, Finland and the United Nations Development Program. Heaven bless you. In the goodwill of the Divine, may the fine people of Iraq be safe and protected as we move forward toward a harmonious vegan world.

Good day gentle viewers, I’m Malina the vegan Hawaiian Monk Seal. As a cool vegan, I am always full of energy and good feelings. This is just one of the many benefits of a plant-based diet. Go vegan today and power up! Here is a little tip for you. Be more eco-friendly and save trees by choosing to read digital forms of magazines and newspapers online instead of purchasing them in stores or getting them delivered. If you opt for the latter, you can share them with your friends, family, or an office waiting room when you are finished to conserve natural resources. Thank you for tuning in, 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.
Sloth-like robot helps monitor the environment.
A team of scientists at Georgia Institute of Technology in the United States, led by Dr. Magnus Egerstedt, have created the slow-moving SlothBot robot that can help gather data in the field. Powered by solar panels, the Slothbot crawls along a cable in the trees and only moves when necessary, such as to recharge its batteries in the sun. It will be useful for applications such as monitoring conditions like weather and chemical factors in a forest for long periods of time. The approximately one-meter long robot covered with a 3D-printed protective shell is currently being deployed at the Atlanta Botanical Garden in the US, where it will hopefully help advance conservation research. What a cool invention, Dr. Magnus Egerstedt and team! In the wisdom of Heaven, may our endearing animal friends continue to inspire humans in creating planet-helping technologies.
United Kingdom supports liquid air battery project.
The UK government, a Shining World Wise Leadership Award and Shining World Leadership Awards for Animal Protection and Kindness laureate, has provided a £10 million grant for the construction of the world’s largest liquid air battery located at Trafford Energy Park near Manchester, UK. The 250-megawatt hour battery will make use of surplus green energy from sources such as wind and solar to compress air into a liquid, thus storing energy that can be drawn on for later use. UK-headquartered long-duration energy storage innovator Highview Power is developing the project, which is producing 200 jobs, mostly in construction. With a life span of up to 40 years, the battery is expected to become operational in 2022. Highview Power is also working on other similar projects throughout the UK, Europe and the United States. Kudos, for supporting this sustainable energy advancement, United Kingdom. Good work, Highview Power and all participants! Your practical storage solution promotes a brighter future, in God’s grace.
Nigerian man lauded for outstanding virtue.
Ikenna Nweke, a doctoral student at the University of Tsukuba in Japan, has recently been commended for returning a wallet he found that contained a substantial sum of money and valuables. Thinking about the owner’s distress, Mr. Nweke immediately went to the police so that the wallet could be returned. Notably, the upright gentleman even turned down the customary 10% finder’s reward, citing his Christian upbringing and the selfless and honest values of the Nigerian culture. The wallet was returned to the owner, who contacted Mr. Nweke to express his gratitude, while the Japanese police also conveyed their appreciation. Also praising Mr. Nweke was Nigerian President His Excellency Muhammadu Buhari, who lauded him for “projecting the values of honesty, integrity and contentment.” We join in expressing sincere thanks, Ikenna Nweke! Your exemplary honesty and consideration are an inspiration to people around the world, in Heaven’s uplifting light.
Up next on Noteworthy News, tofu demand to surge globally. We are going to pause for a moment to make a to-do list, which helps us set priorities and manage tasks more effectively. We’ll return with more inspiring news on Supreme Master Television. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Forward-looking News for a Progressive World.
Tofu global sales to soar.
Based on reports from Indian-headquartered market research reports services company Million Insights, the worldwide tofu market is expected to be worth US$3.28 billion by the end of 2025. It is predicted to increase at a 5.2% Compound Annual Growth Rate from 2019 to 2025. Health conscious consumers and the increasing population of vegans are cited as major driving factors of the tofu market. Tofu is a good source of protein, and contains key minerals such as calcium, zinc, magnesium, iron, phosphorous and potassium. In addition, tofu has a high content of isoflavones, which have been shown to reduce the risk of breast cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Thank you, Million Insights, for the encouraging report. We are delighted to hear of the growing popularity of nutritious tofu. In God’s love, may discerning consumers enjoy this plant-based gem in a variety of delectable ways in this vegan era.
Distraught cow escapes from impending slaughter in Switzerland.
Panicked upon arrival at an abattoir, a young cow leaped over the barrier of an unloading truck. Upon falling from the few meters jump, she quickly got up and ran frantically. Chantal Kaufmann, a vegan and animal activist, saw the escape and contacted animal sanctuary Gnadenhof Papillon, which immediately reached out to Villa Kuhnterbunt, a loving shelter for cows, oxen and calves. Both Swiss organizations teamed up to save the anguished cow. Meanwhile, Ms. Kaufmann got the various parties involved in the cruel business to agree to the life-saving takeover. After the rescue, the cow, now named “Tilda,” was taken to a veterinary hospital and later, after her recovery, was moved to her forever home at Villa Kuhnterbunt. May your new life be filled with love and happiness, beautiful Tilda. Our heartfelt gratitude, Chantal Kaufmann, Gnadenhof Papillon and Villa Kuhnterbunt. May Heaven bless all involved in the rescue, and may humankind immediately realize that turning vegan is necessary to end suffering and ensure enduring benevolence, peace and joy on Earth, in Divine mercy.
The key to looking young is a good laugh! Join us for our joke of the day entitled “Amateurs.”
Jenna was lying on the living room couch watching her favorite show on the Vegan Food Network when her husband walked in.
“Sweety, why do you watch those cooking shows, when you don’t even cook?”
“Why do you watch football then?”
And now we have a heartline from Chen-Jing in China:
Hallo, Respected Supreme Master Ching Hai and Supreme Master TV team: I sincerely thank you for bringing us such wonderful TV programs. I very much love the programs. In each and every scene, I can feel the overwhelming blessings Master brings from the high universe, full of love and wisdom. Be it the positive news from all over the world, the beauteous landscapes, or the cute animals and beautiful plants, they are all full of God’s love and the Creator’s miraculous work. There are plenty of entertaining programs, including tips about everyday living, how to treat oneself and all beings well, which are both beneficial and entertaining. And it’s really fantastic that we can see Master and learn spiritual wisdom of past enlightened Masters and philosophers in Words of Wisdom and Between Master And Disciples, etc.! I watch Supreme Master TV 24-hours a day and witness the miraculous power of God everywhere. After the first vegetarian restaurant opened in the small county town where I live, another two veggie restaurants have opened. As the vegan population increases, the harmony between human and human, human and nature, human and animals and plants has all increased. In the area where I live, the forest coverage rate has reached 59.28% and the greening rate, 71.67%. Residents can sense the blessing of forest and green areas within 500 meters from their home. Thanks to Master’s perseverance to save all beings and illuminate the world, the world has become so wonderful! The earth has become so beautiful and colorful because Master is living on it with us, and the world has developed so rapidly because of the existence of an Enlightened Master. Besides the praises and glory, what I feel more is it’s the honor to be able to practice with Master to perceive the universal light, sound and wisdom. My heart is full of joy and happiness, and I am in appreciation and gratitude in every moment. Dear Master, each time watching You on TV walking with heavy steps – though still with a smile on Your face to meet the world Association members, selflessly sacrificing Yourself for the world and sentient beings, I can’t help bursting into tears. My dear Master, You definitely have to take good care of Your body! While loving and caring for the world and beings, You also have to do the same to Your own body. Dear Master, Your child cordially wishes most compassionate Master best of health, a smooth and successful mission, and fulfillment of Your grand vows. I am grateful to the diligent devotion of the Supreme Master TV team! Thank You, Master, for Your grace and blessings! I love You, most beloved Master!!! Chen-Jing from China
Gracious Chen-Jing, Thank you for sharing your wonderful thoughts and experiences with us. We pray that our world continues to become more enlightened and has many more kindhearted people, such as yourself, to care for and protect our planet and loving animal co-inhabitants. Thank you for your kind words for our Beloved Master. Wishing that Heaven’s blessings shower you and the brilliant people of China, Supreme Master TV team
P.S. Master also says: “Purehearted Chen-Jing, my love, it is encouraging to read your message about the greening of your hometown as well as the growing number plant-based restaurants. You are right that relationships between all beings, including humans and animals, will be positively transformed such that the love will flow freely when we all choose the vegan way. May you and brave China enjoy a spiritual atmosphere that grows by the day, in Buddha’s delight.”
