European Union and France help improve climate resilience in Âu Lạc, also known as Vietnam.
The EU and French Development Agency (AFD) recently agreed to implement a program called “Climate-Resilient Urban Infrastructure in North-Central Vietnam.” Recently, this area has greatly suffered from tropical storms and floods occurring consecutively. With €5 million provided by the EU, and a loan of €123 million from the AFD and €28 million contributed by local provinces, this new project will help five towns to improve their disaster relief efforts, reinforce drainage networks, and enhance the safety of citizens. The European Union is a recipient of two Shining World Leadership Awards for Humanitarianism, two Shining World Leadership Awards for Peace,a Shining World Leadership Award for Earth Protection, and a laureate of Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, Unconditional World Care, and True Caring. Our appreciation, European Union, French Development Agency, and Aulacese (Vietnamese) provincial governments. With best wishes to beautiful Âu Lạc, may climate change soon be stopped as we build a vegan world of kindness, in Heaven’s grace.
Study finds that Red Sea turtle hatchlings may be predominantly female due to rising sand temperatures.
The gender of marine turtles is determined by the temperature of the nest during their incubation, which makes them particularly vulnerable to climate change. A team of researchers at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia have collected sand temperature data from five sites where the turtles would normally nest. Maximum temperature recordings were noted as high as 36.0 degrees Celsius at 30 centimeters in depth. This is alarmingly far above the ideal temperature to maintain an even female-to-male ratio, which current research suggests to be 29.2 degrees Celsius. Thank you, scientists, for highlighting the serious effects of climate change on our sensitive animal co-inhabitants. In Divine guidance, may we all become dedicated guardians of all life, starting by going vegan.
Up next, children of Palau write eco-pledge that all visitors must sign. We’ll just thank the fashion designers who set new trends with their creative, aesthetically pleasing clothing and accessories. Please stay for more valuable news on Supreme Master Television.
Hi, happy friends, it’s Cory the vegan Cotton-top Tamarin! You smell so clean and health-full just like me. You must be a vegan − I am right, love you much for that! Would you like to know how you can create better fruit or veggie smoothies? It’s easy. Always start making your smoothies by pouring in your liquids first, such as water, juice or vegetable broth. Next, add in the solid ingredients like vegetables, greens and fruits. This will take the pressure off the blender motor, as the liquids will pull the other ingredients down the blender while the blade spins. The result is a smoother and more delicious smoothie – plus an increased lifespan for your blender! Big love for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all humans and us all co-inhabitants! And thank you for tuning in. Now the weather around our beautiful globe.
Palau, a Shining World Leadership Awards for Environmental Protection and Ocean Protection laureate, implements creative sustainable tourism measure.
The famous Pacific nation of Palau now requires arriving visitors to sign a pledge, which was written by the country’s children, to help preserve the island’s pristine surroundings. All tourists are transported by plane and consume mainly imported foods, both of which produce heavy greenhouse gas emissions. The new pledge was created to lessen the impact. An excerpt reads: “I vow to tread lightly, act kindly and explore mindfully. I shall not take what is not given. I shall not harm what does not harm me. The only footprints I shall leave are those that will wash away.” Such heartwarming news, Palau, on your protective efforts. In the love of the Providence, may we all be good and honorable guests of this planet as we respect the spectacular nature around us.
Hungarian startup receives funding to test plastic-eating bacteria.
Hungarian biotechnology company Poliloop, co-founded by Liz Madaras, Dr. Krisztina Lévay, and Gábor Antal, has received financial support from Vespucci Partners in Hungary and Techstars from the United States to start industrial scale testing of their plastic-eating bacteria. The technology utilizes a mixture of microbes that can break down any disposable plastic within seven weeks. The end result is an organic substance which can be used to produce bioplastics again, or be returned to the earth as a soil improver. The raw plastic materials that are fed into the system also do not need to be significantly processed or cleaned before-hand. Congratulations, Liz Madaras, Dr. Krisztina Lévay, Gábor Antal and Poliloop, on reaching the next stage in your promising endeavor. In Celestial light, may such technologies soon be used in all regions to clean and restore our beloved Earth.
His Excellency Donald Trump signs law to protect girls and women.
As he continued working conscientiously through the last days of his term, former President of the United States, His Excellency Donald Trump, signed the STOP FGM Act of 2020, which strengthens measures to stop female genital mutilation in the US. The Act allows federal law enforcement to prosecute those who perform the dangerous and violent procedure, while also increasing the prison sentence from five to ten years. Government agencies are also required to report on what they are doing to end the practice in the country, where about 513,000 young individuals have been affected or are at risk. His Excellency is a Shining World Peace Leader Award laureate, and he and the US Congress are both Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion laureates. Our gratefulness, Your Excellency Donald Trump and US Congress. In Heaven’s benevolence, may such cruel and unnecessary practices end worldwide for the protection of innocent lives.
In a 1994 lecture given in Thailand, Supreme Master Ching Hai spoke about female circumcision, which is inflicted on millions of girls and women globally each year.
“You heard about circumcision of the boy. They do the same and the worst to the girl. And as I read on the newspaper, I think they don’t use any anesthetic injection. And when they do that, they make the girl suffer so much. Small girl, from six to eleven years old. Because they believe that will cut off the sexual desire of the girl and that makes them faithful to their husband, etc. Sometimes they do it on the street corner, like a kiosk selling cigarettes or something, in the corner. And they just do that, regardless of the little girl’s feeling and suffering. And then the mother stands around and sings, and that’s all there is. And this experience the girls will never forget as long as they live. They do have difficulty in labor, in giving birth to the children, as well. Sometimes after the circumcision, they bleed, they have hemorrhage. And then sometimes they die of that, the girls. At least they will lay in bed for many weeks, suffering. Terrible. It hurt me so much, I wanted to scream. I don’t know how can parents do this kind of thing to their children. I don’t care what benefit they get out of it. It’s obviously no benefit. How can people do this? How can? And even educated people blindly follow this kind of tradition. It is not God! It’s the devil’s working. There is no such statement in the Qur’an. No such thing! Such an inhuman action and doing that to little girls. Some children die after that. What benefit? What benefit if they die? I don’t know how can a human heart bear this, stand around and look at that – the parents – look at your own children suffer for nothing! Some people are so blind and so, so stupid, and so inhuman, I cannot believe it. Because they learn bad things, they learn the bad way. So you can see how a wrong theory, a wrong teaching can make suffering to other people. Sometimes just one person goes wrong, leading a big group of people to go wrong; and that group of people will lead a bigger group of people to go wrong. And then it continues like this. So that’s why we can never afford to have our thought, deeds, and actions impure. We must always check, control, and must do things only for positive, and only for love, and only to avoid suffering. Never we can relax on controlling our thinking and our actions.”
Up next on Noteworthy News, acclaimed British television presenter goes vegan. We’ll just step outside to water the plants in our organic vegetable garden. We’ll return with more outstanding news on Supreme Master Television. Welcome back to Noteworthy News - Sharing News for a Considerate World.
Acclaimed British television presenter goes vegan.
Jonathan Ross, who is also a well-known film critic, actor and comedian, recently announced that he spent his first Christmas as a vegan, after switching to the lifestyle with his wife, screenwriter and producer Jane Goldman. Mr. Ross and Ms. Goldman adopted the plant-based diet last year, after visiting a vegetarian restaurant and deciding they wanted “to help save the planet.” The very popular broadcaster also shared that he has given up alcohol. We are elated and thankful to hear of your switch to the vegan way of life, Jonathan Ross and Jane Goldman. In Divine blessings, may countless more follow your example by turning towards the compassionate, planet-saving lifestyle.
California, United States enacts new law to protect animals.
The California Ecosystems Protection Act, which came into effect on January 1, 2021, places vital restrictions on the use of highly toxic rat poisons. These rodenticides cause extreme suffering and death to domestic animals as well as wild animals such as mountain lions, bobcats, hawks and other species, including endangered ones. The new law was introduced by California Assembly member the Honorable Richard Bloom. California is a recipient of Shining World Leadership Awards for Environmental Protection, Compassion, and Justice, and a laureate of four Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, a Shining World Leadership Award for Protection, Shining World Super Loving Care Leadership Award, and two Shining World Leadership Awards for Loving Care. Our sincere appreciation, the Honorable Richard Bloom and California. May all harmful substances be banned and our animal co-inhabitants safeguarded, in God’s loving embrace.
Laughter is truly the best medicine, and it’s free, so here’s an original joke for today by our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai, called “Power of the House.”
“Welcome. So, how is your country?”
“Ah, not too good Master, they are ripping for the Top House!”
“Oh, they are homeless? But they have shelters for the homeless.”
“No, they have houses and fortune; they are fighting for the Power of the House because one party is blamed for cheating to get it!”
“Our Ashram has power, any of them are welcome to come and get it, no fight!”
“They just want that House, Master.”
“To whom belongs that House?”
“To the people. They fight because one party really wants to use it to serve the people, the other, to serve himself.”
“Not to worry. As you sew, so you’ll be ripped!”
And now we have a heartline from Jinny in Korea:
I send my love to You, Ultimate Master. Ever since You started to speak out directly and firmly to lead all living beings on this Earth to a Vegan World, whenever I see the video clips of animals being killed broadcasted on Supreme Master Television, I put a hand over my eyes as it’s too difficult to watch and so sorrowful. I hardly have any day without tears. As we feel like this, I don’t dare to imagine how hard, how heartbreaking and painful it is for Master, who has infinite mercy, to review those video clips for broadcasting. I’m so deeply sorry. I hope everyone in the world understands Master’s ideal, and wakes up quickly to create a vegan world so that there will be lots of happy videos of animal friends, instead of painful or sad ones. I also will do my best playing my small part. I humbly appreciate and respect You. Jinny from Gwangju, Korea
Caring Jinny, Thank you for your insightful observations regarding the heartache and trials that Master bears to save all beings and our planet. We pray that all the Godses, Heavenly Beings, and Original Universe unite to ease Her pain.
Master has a reply for you: “Brave Jinny, I do cry in anguish and deep sorrow when viewing these horrific clips of the torturing of sweet animals who have done absolutely no harm to humans, but we must show it because many are not aware about where meat comes from. Please ask everyone you know to pray with us for World Vegan to stop this nightmare of unspeakable cruelty and help humanity wake up and choose the wholesome plant-based lifestyle. Love you too, and may the Divine adorn you and the kind-hearted Korean people with abundant blessings.”
