Earthquake Relief in Taiwan (Formosa) September 19, 2022
Most Compassionate Master, A magnitude 6.4 earthquake struck southeastern Taitung County in Taiwan (Formosa) at 9:41 pm on Saturday, September 17. The following day, on September 18, another quake, this one 6.8 in magnitude, struck at 2:44 pm, causing damage in the seriously hit areas of neighboring Hualien and Taitung counties. The number of people injured is 169 so far, with one reported death.
After receiving Master’s instructions, we checked if anyone required assistance and offered aid where needed. Below are reports from Hualien, Taitung, and Taoyuan centers.
Hualien. The quake on Sunday caused damage to buildings and infrastructure in Hualien; two bridges broke apart, three buildings collapsed, including one elementary school, and two roads collapsed. A train also derailed at Hualien Dongli Railway Station, but fortunately no one was injured. In the morning, around 7:30 am on September 19, our Hualien Association members contacted related personnel to determine the status of victims in the most affected area, Chunri village, as well as how they were taking care of displaced citizens in the Yuli Township shelter. We found out that four people trapped in a collapsed building were all rescued safely.
Next, we contacted the head of Chunri village, who provided us with a list of needed relief items and the affected households at 11 am. Four of our Association members purchased the needed items in a nearby shop and packed them quickly, then went to the Zhiluo tribe of Chunri village. The relief packages included rice, oil, salt, vegan soy sauce, sugar, soy milk, juice, vegan biscuits, water, etc. We gave them to 13 affected households, with a Supreme Master TV flyer, and Master’s book “From Crisis to Peace – The Organic Vegan Way is the Answer” in it, and conveyed Master’s loving concern and care to them. We also explained to them that being vegan has the most protection for all the people and the world.
According to the information from the Health Bureau in Hualien, 11 earthquake victims in total were hospitalized. A social worker told us that three who were injured were the most in need of help for now. Therefore, we provided each with TWD 5,000 (US$160) for their medical expense. The social worker also informed our Association members that the residents in the village use simple tap water, but unfortunately, the pipes in the water tower broke apart after the quakes. They now need plumbers to help repair them, but rarely can find plumbers in Yuli Township. Thus, they said they hoped our Association could give them a hand. Our Hualien members, with other centers’ assistance, will try to repair the broken pipes for them.
We also inquired about the household needs of the Zhuo Qing village. The village head replied that their roads had been blocked after the severe quakes, and the local government had started to clear them. We were also told that the central government will fully reimburse the funds spent on local repairs and renovations.
Taitung. Many public facilities in Guanshan and Chishang, Taitung were damaged, such as one ready-mix cement plant, two public grain warehouses, one brick factory, and a rice mill factory. Luckily, no one was reported as injured due to the quakes. Our Association member contacted the Zhenxing village head on Monday, September 19, and he replied that they did not need any relief items since there was no report of casualties for now; thank God. Some of our members went to Guanshan, Chishang, Zhenxing village, and Luye nearby, to investigate. We will continue to visit other places and check if any help is needed.
Taoyuan. One person was injured in an indoor badminton court in Taoyuan after the ceiling collapsed. In addition, one fatality was recorded to date, a worker at a ready-mix cement factory in Yuli, Hualien. According to the news report, he was from Taoyuan, so our Association members from Taoyuan will see if they can visit the injured and the victim’s family members to send Master’s care and condolences to them. All Formosan centers will work together to help the affected people in areas where it’s most needed. We are thankful for Master’s constant Love and concern for victims. We also pray for them and their families. From all Formosa Centers/ Contact Persons
Upon reading this report, our Beloved Master conveyed Her sadness and Love for all those affected: “Thank you for the report, though it doesn’t ease much of my sorrow. My tearful prayers are with Taiwan (Formosa) and all the victims especially. My heart is always with you and your beautiful country. Any more need, please let the accountant know to reimburse or/and provide. God Bless. May all Taiwanese (Formosans) realize the transient, fleeting nature of this physical life and turn completely vegan to go forward on the road to the Heavenly Realm. Omitofo (Amitābha). Amen. My Love to you all.”
Qatar sends timely assistance to flood victims in Sudan.
Directed by His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar, and a Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion laureate, an urgent shipment of relief items has been sent to Sudan. It included 62 tons of food and 600 tents as well as shelter supplies. The provisions were shipped to affected persons in the states of Al Jazirah and River Nile. The aid was provided by the Qatar Fund for Development in cooperation with Qatar Charity, a Shining World Compassion Award laureate, in coordination with the Embassy of Qatar in Khartoum. Qatar is a Shining World Leadership Award for Peace laureate. Our gratitude, Your Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Qatar Fund for Development, Qatar Charity and others involved, for your swift assistance to the soulful people of Sudan. We pray that all the victims recover from this disaster quickly, in Allah’s protective Grace.
Europe hit by worst drought in 500 years due to climate crisis.
The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) revealed that in August 2022, approximately 64% of the continent was experiencing warning or alert levels of drought conditions. Alarmingly, nearly all of Europe’s rivers have been affected, with some of the region’s major waterways losing the water levels required to support the passage of large cargo vessels. Moreover, shrinking water sources have resulted in a 20% decline in hydroelectric power, while crop yields of grain maize, soybeans and sunflowers are expected to decline by 16%, 15% and 12% below the five-year average, respectively. In a statement, Her Excellency Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, said, “The combination of a severe drought and heatwaves has created an unprecedented stress on water levels in the entire EU… Climate change is undoubtedly more noticeably every year...” Many thanks for the vital, concerning warnings, Your Excellency Mariya Gabriel and JRC. May everyone urgently turn vegan now to create a climate-resilient future for all, in God’s Wisdom. “U don’t have 2 b vegan or n make peace: just buy a water hose so that when u land in hell, u can try 2 put out the fire.”
Up next, staff at Australian hospital practice gardening to relax. Let’s now thank the hotel operators who direct incoming calls to guest rooms, provide wake-up calls, and answer questions about the facility's amenities and services. We’ll return with more alleviating news here on Supreme Master Television.
Hallo, I’m Lelwel, a vegan chef from the Hartebeest kingdom! Have you learned any new vegan recipes lately, my lovely friends? Don’t let your diet become dull and have people think you only eat grass! Let me help inspire you with this delicious tip on how to make sweet potato avocado toast! Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (205 degrees Celsius). Then peel a sweet potato and cut it into long flat pieces approximately half an inch (1.25 centimeters) thick. These will serve as your “toast.” Next, bake your sweet potato for 20 minutes. Then cut up some cucumber slices and mash up an avocado to put on your toast. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon (15 grams) of sesame seeds for additional healthy fats and season with salt and pepper to taste. Lastly, drizzle 1 teaspoon (5 milliliters) of olive oil over the top! Oooh, la, la and bon appétit! Love you for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all humans and us all co-inhabitants. Thank you for watching. And now, the weather around the world.
Australian hospital staff enhance mental health by gardening.
Employees of the Mater Hospital in Brisbane, Australia, have been doing gardening during their breaks to help relieve stress and improve well-being. The project is part of a study to determine the positive effects of allowing workers to spend time outdoors in nature during their workday. The facility has installed self-watering garden pods in outside areas, and the staff have been growing a range of plants, including capsicum, chili, bok choy, spinach, eggplant, rocket, herbs and more. Employees can take veggies home, and the on-site kitchen utilizes the produce in meals that are served to patients. Way to go, Mater Hospital, on your bright idea to give your healthcare professionals an opportunity to spend some relaxing time in nature, while growing fresh produce. In Heaven’s compassionate light, may other employers also adopt this splendid system to boost worker wellness.
International researchers develop low-cost battery.
Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States, together with other researchers from the USA, Canada, and China, recently designed a battery that could be produced for about one-sixth the price of current lithium-ion cells and would be suitable for homes or small businesses. The device uses aluminum and sulfur for the electrodes, which are both abundant and inexpensive. The electrolyte between the electrodes, that carries the ions back and forth during discharging and charging, was produced from molten salts, which makes the cell capable of being powered up quickly and means the device cannot catch fire. It is also recyclable. Wonderful news, international researchers, on your discovery of a new kind of battery to help power the transition to a green and vegan future. May such beneficial advancements become the hallmark of an enlightened world, in Celestial wonder.
Ukrainian paramedic praised for tireless efforts in assisting wounded.
Known as the “Medic of Mariupol,” Serhiy Chornobryvets worked non-stop for 22 consecutive days, barely sleeping and assisting the injured while often risking his own life during the Russian bombardment of Mariupol. After finally escaping that city in March, Mr. Chornobryvets joined an organization of medics and was sent to the front lines in eastern Ukraine. He has been lauded for his courage by the Ukrainian President, His Excellency Volodymyr Zelenskyy, a Shining World Leadership Award for Bravery laureate. Serhiy is only 24-years-old and a year short of graduating from college; however, he has vowed to stay on the battlefield until Ukraine wins the war. Our admiration and gratitude to you, Serhiy Chornobryvets, for your selfless actions in helping the wounded. May you always be protected as you continue your brave work of saving courageous Ukrainian defenders, in God’s Blessings. The animal-people r gifts from Heaven: b vegan.
Coming up, famed Academy Award-winning American actor promotes plant-based living in new wildlife-people documentary. We’ll just step outside for a moment to install a new wind chime on our front porch. Supreme Master Television will return in just a moment with more wonderful news. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Positive News for a Knowledgeable World.
Renowned Oscar-winning American actor advocates for plant-based diets in new documentary.
The award-winning film “Why On Earth,” directed and produced by vegan Katie Cleary, shares the message of how humanity is harming endangered species and itself through the destruction of habitats, the illegal wildlife trade, and practices that fuel climate change. Clint Eastwood, the Academy Award-winning actor celebrated for his roles in Western-themed films, lends his voice to the motion picture as a narrator and interviewee. In the trailer, he speaks of how changing to a plant-based diet is the compassionate choice and says, “I’m an animal person. I appreciate the beauty of them. I just like to see everything live.” Mr. Eastwood’s family also runs Eastwood Ranch Foundation, which helps save animal-person companions from high-kill shelters and runs adoption campaigns for them. We are elated to hear of your love for people from the animal kingdom, Clint Eastwood! And a big thank you, Katie Cleary, for creating such a positively impactful film. In Divine splendor, may a loving, compassionate vegan world soon be.
Endangered butterfly in UK shows signs of recovery.
A butterfly that was pronounced extinct in the UK in 1979 has now rebounded to an estimated population of 20,000. Thanks to the dedicated efforts of ecologist David Simcox, other scientists and a number of conservation organizations, the large blue butterfly is now thriving in numerous sites in southwest England. The recovery of the species involved bringing caterpillars from Sweden in 1983 and rebuilding habitats known to be conducive to their survival. The restored meadows were also found to have benefited other rare types of insects and plants. Mr. Simcox said that it was incredibly satisfying to see the butterflies doing so well. However, ecologists caution that poor land management and climate change pose a risk to the still endangered species. Thank you, David Simcox, scientists and partnering organizations, for your successful efforts in protecting and restoring our beneficial insect friends. May they continue to thrive and color our world, in the tender embrace of the Providence.
The hilarity printer has just printed the joke of the day, so it’s time for some fun! This one’s entitled, “Memory Problems?”
A woman went to see the doctor.
“Doctor, I’ve lost my memory! What should I do?”
“OK, ma’am. Don’t worry. First, tell me, when did this start?”
“Last year on October 10th at 9 am.”
And now we have a heartline from Alice in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia:
Master, I thought I’d share a funny story. One day, I wore yellow. That morning, in my head and heart, I felt as though You chose my outfit for me. Some suffering happened to my mother, so I bought my mum yellow roses that morning. They were the only ones I wanted. I went to the store, and bam, there they were! Then, I got home after seeing mum and blessing her with roses (with Your Blessings) and put a lecture on YouTube, and Your lecture “How Suffering Can Lead Us to Happiness” came up as the first one. I feel like You always choose the right one for me, and I always click the very first one that comes up. Then bam, You were wearing yellow too!!!
I love You, Master, so much. You are always with me. I am not initiated yet, but I feel like I already am. I just feel so blessed and grateful. I love You so much. I can’t wait to follow You completely (even though I feel I already am). Thank You, Master, for all the Love and Blessings You have been giving me. I feel so many miracles happening in front of my eyes that just make me cry with blessing and happiness. I love You, Master. I can’t wait to be like You. Alice from Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia
Graceful Alice, Thank you for your heartline. It is always a pleasure to hear another example of Master’s Love in action.
Master has this caring response for you: “Elated Alice, I hope your mother is well and liked the beautiful roses. May she also feel so much Love and happiness by Divine Blessing. It makes me so happy to see you enjoying your miracles and with such heartfelt gratitude. Continue to trust in the Divine and be patient, as we are always together. Know that I always love you. May the Heavens joyously guide you, your loved ones, and the God-loving Australian people on the spiritual journey.”
