In today’s news, international humanitarian relief organization strengthens support for Venezuelan migrants and refugees, United Nations entities seek immediate action to address famine risk in Ethiopia’s Tigray Region, study finds natural sounds calm mind and body, World Health Organization releases free yoga app, 10-year-old Russian boy sets pushup record, three-star Michelin restaurant in New York City, United States goes plant-based, and Estonia outlaws raising animals for fur.
Global humanitarian organization assists Venezuelan migrants.
A new US$264 million program by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) will provide increased support to Venezuelan migrants and refugees as well as host communities. People in 17 countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean will receive the much needed assistance over 36 months. Areas to be focused on include offering healthcare access, income opportunities, psychosocial support, protection services and aiding integration into local society. The COVID-19 pandemic, associated lockdowns and border restrictions have exacerbated the perilous situation of the vulnerable migrants, many of whom have no way to earn income and are unable to meet basic needs like adequate food and protection. Dr. Peter Maurer, President of the International Committee of the Red Cross, said: “No one should be left unprotected and alone when in need of help.” Our grateful applause, IFRC. In the Providence’s benevolent grace, may all migrants and refugees soon greet brighter tomorrows in a kinder world.
United Nations (UN) entities call for urgent action to mitigate famine risk in Ethiopia’s Tigray Region.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the UN World Food Programme (WFP) and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) are appealing for immediate measures to address acute food insecurity in the conflict-affected Tigray Region of northern Ethiopia. According to the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification, more than 5.5 million people in Tigray and the neighboring zones of Amhara and Afar live with high acute or worse levels of food insecurity. In particular, over 350,000 people are in the “Catastrophe” category and two million are in the “Emergency” category. To avert the chance of imminent famine, the UN agencies urge for a cessation of hostilities, free access to the area, as well as a contribution of funds totaling nearly US$300 million to provide emergency food and livelihood assistance. Many thanks, FAO, WFP and UNICEF. In Celestial upliftment, may more stable lives soon await those in the Tigray Region with abundance and tranquility for all.

Study finds natural sounds benefit health.
Dr. Rachel Buxton, a conservation scientist at Carleton University in Canada, conducted a meta-analysis of 36 studies, examining the effects of natural sounds, such as wind, water and birds, on health. When people listened to these sounds, their feelings of stress and annoyance, on average, decreased by 28%. Water sounds were the most beneficial in reducing heart rate, pain and blood pressure by a remarkable 23%. Amazingly, a more than 180% health improvement in terms of better mood and cognitive performance as well as other measures was found in groups that listened to sounds from nature. Thank you, Dr. Rachel Buxton, for your beneficial study. In Divine support, may we cherish and protect all natural areas around our beautiful Earth as they help us to feel calm and peaceful inside.

Coming up, three-star Michelin restaurant in New York City, United States goes plant-based. We will take a moment to pray for a peaceful world where no one flees their homeland for safety elsewhere. You’re watching Noteworthy News on Supreme Master Television. Vegan chooser: Always a winner. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Outstanding News for a Wondrous World.
Upscale restaurant in New York City, United States, converts to almost fully plant-based menu.
After closing for over a year due to the pandemic, Eleven Madison Park (EMP), a three-star Michelin restaurant, and one of the most expensive in New York City, has reopened with almost a full vegan menu. Chef and co-owner Daniel Humm explained the reason for this momentous change saying: “We are thrilled to share the incredible possibilities of plant-based cuisine while deepening our connection to our homes: both our city and our planet.” The restaurant now offers an eight to ten-course plant-based tasting menu and with each meal sold, five more meals will be provided to New Yorkers experiencing food insecurity. This initiative is being offered in conjunction with the non-profit Rethink Food. Bravo, Eleven Madison Park. May your noble change to a plant-based menu be a signal to other prominent restaurants around the world that vegan cuisine is the future of food, in Divine love.
Estonia bans keeping animals for fur.
The state recently became the 14th nation in the European Union to prohibit the raising of animals for fur. There will be a transition period with all such activity ending by 2026 at the latest. The move came after 12 years of discussions on the topic and extensive campaigning by Estonian animal rights activists. The United Kingdom government, which previously outlawed breeding animals for fur in 2003, is now examining whether to ban the import of fur as well. Currently, the UK allows fur from other countries to be sold, yet only 3% of the people in the United Kingdom actually wear it and 72% of citizens support further restrictions. Our commendation and appreciation, Estonia and United Kingdom, for your loving actions to protect our beautiful animal co-inhabitants. We pray that all nations will soon prohibit fur entirely to ensure our animal friends can live their lives in peace and dignity, in God’s protection.
The key to looking young is a good laugh! Join us for our joke of the day entitled “Baby’s Voice.”
Anthony came over to visit his friend Bobby one afternoon, when he saw Bobby with his baby brother, concentrated on doing something.
“What are you up to?”
“Oh, I’m just recording my baby brother’s voice.”
“What would you do that for?”
“Well, when he grows up, I’m going to play it for him and ask him what he was talking about!”
And now we have a heartline from Ngọc Huệ in Âu Lạc, also known as Vietnam:
On December 18, 2020, our Beloved Master shared with us Her beneficial insights on Covid-19, on Noteworthy News’ Fly-In News titled “U.S. President Donald Trump is Good for the World.” This is Heaven’s screening based on the law of Cause and Effect, which is very heartbreaking but necessary. I hope that Supreme Master Television continues to broadcast this kind of information, so that humanity can understand and switch to the more compassionate diet. Also, I humbly hope that the presidents, the leaders in the world, will turn to peace, so that all the tragic situations will never happen again. I also hope that the training to kill enemies in the army will be stopped forever. We don’t need to prepare to kill anyone anymore. On Between Master and Disciples that day, Master mentioned that we disciples should meditate to help to clean the world, for the liberation of ourselves and our nine generations. I am very impressed by Your advice saying that we should not be negative to Master and other initiates, if we don’t want to cause bad effects to ourselves and our nine generations. If possible, we should support Master in our hearts. Your lecture this time was excellent, and I liked it very much. Via this heartline, I would like to encourage those who didn’t see it to watch the program titled: “We Are Transparent in the Eyes of the Universe.” I lovingly send this heartline to Master and the Supreme Master Television team. Ngọc Huệ from Âu Lạc (Vietnam)
Considerate Ngọc Huệ, Our appreciation for your heartline. We join you in hope and prayer for peace on Earth and thank you for your caring words and advice. We pray the Universal Power protects and supports Master and Her words are heeded by humanity. May you and the precious Aulacese (Vietnamese) people be forever blessed. In Divine Love, Supreme Master TV team
P.S. Master replies and applauds your sentiments: “Caring Ngọc Huệ, I can feel your love and good heart and am grateful to have initiates such as yourself who do listen and hear, knowing I speak only out of Love for you, for all peoples, and the animal kingdom. May Heavens bring you and beautiful Âu Lạc (Vietnam) much serenity and bliss.”
We welcome your heartlines, stories and or cute, loving animal clips. Please send them via SupremeMasterTV.com/heartline
