Our sincere gratitude, European Union, for your benevolent commitment to the kind people of Yemen. May they soon have lasting peace and stability, in Allah’s abounding mercy.
Highly contagious COVID-19 variant poses danger of reinfection.
A recently identified coronavirus variant known as P1 could re-infect up to 61 percent of people who were previously ill with the virus. A study was conducted by researchers at Brazil’s University of São Paulo together with colleagues at the Imperial College London and the University of Oxford in the UK. The research focused on the city of Manaus in the state of Amazonas, Brazil where the P1 variant first emerged. The region suffered very high infection rates last year and then endured a second wave of the virus, even in those who had already recovered. Scientists believe that the reinfection could have been caused by the P1 lineage. P1’s unique outer spike proteins make it more binding to human cells, thus it is estimated to be up to 2.2 times more transmissible than other forms of COVID-19. Our appreciation, researchers, for this important information. May Heaven keep us on course to recovery from the pandemic as we support each other in wearing masks, keeping social distancing, and choosing plant-based living.

Hallo, cheerful friends, how are you today? I’m Raquel the vegan Red Ruffed Lemur! Heaven on Earth is as close as your next vegan meal, because no animals will suffer and you will be blessed from above for your peaceful loving choice!! Here is a health tip for you. Drinking warm water can have beneficial effects including preventing premature aging and eliminating toxins while restoring skin cells to increase elasticity. Take advantage of this easy remedy by making it a routine to drink warm water in the morning, either plain or with lemon. After you boil the water, allow it to cool for several minutes before drinking. If you take medicine, be sure to consult your prescribing physician whether it’s okay to take it with warm water as the medicine’s efficacy may be affected in some cases. 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.
Chevrolet unveils new electric vehicle with hands-free driving aid.
In summer 2021, the American car manufacturer will begin selling the new Bolt Electric Utility Vehicle, which is 15 centimeters longer than the current Bolt EV model, and comes with the option of a hands-free driving system made by its parent company General Motors. Using a GPS system, camera and sensors, the Super Cruise can steer the car within a highway lane, on over 322,000 kilometers of 3D-mapped US and Canadian roads. While the driver can relax without holding the steering wheel, the Super Cruise system also has facial recognition to make sure that he/she is still constantly watching the road. In addition, it gives notice ahead of intersections or other situations where the driver needs to take over. Cool news, Chevrolet, on your new electric vehicle with a hands-free option! We look forward to a green and high-tech future after our world becomes vegan and thus more stabilized, in Divine grace.
Taiwanese (Formosan) municipality seeks to expand its ocean cleaning divers’ team.
The Taoyuan Office of Coast Administration Construction in northwestern Taiwan, also known as Formosa, is seeking part-time volunteers to join a team of 133 divers who are helping to clean the underwater areas off the coast of the municipality. Office Director and the head of the clean-up operation, Lin Li-chang, said that the team of volunteer divers, which has grown nearly seven times since it was established in 2019, extracted over 90 kilograms of trash from the Guanxin Algal Reefs Wildlife Conservation Area last year. The team also analyzes the litter and sadly discovered that fishing nets made up most of the debris on local coral reefs. This information prompted the Taoyuan city government to launch a buy-back program for fishing nets to prevent them from ending up in oceans. Thank you, Taoyuan government and the selfless volunteers, for helping to keep our oceans clean! In Buddha’s love, may everyone make a conscious effort to maintain a safe and flourishing world.
Egypt strengthens law prohibiting female genital mutilation (FGM).
The Egyptian cabinet has approved a recent amendment to an already existing law prohibiting FGM that would increase incarceration time to up to 20 years for those found guilty of the offense. In addition, medical personnel taking part in this cruel procedure will not be allowed to work at their profession for up to five years. Individuals requesting FGM will also face jail time. According to the World Health Organization, short-term risks of FGM include severe pain, hemorrhaging, shock and death, while long-term risks include chronic infections, difficult childbirth, mental health problems, and more. The amendment is yet to meet final approval. Egypt is a laureate of Shining World Leadership Awards for Peace and Earth Conservation. Thank you, the Egyptian government, for this very important humane measure. May it soon be approved in Egypt and beyond, for the protection of innocent lives, in Allah’s compassion.
Coming up, vegan couple who overcame challenges opens plant-based soul food restaurant. We will take a moment to appreciate the inventors of cooking appliances like air fryers, that reduce cooking time and use much less oil than deep fryers while producing the same effect. We’ll be right back with more brightening news here on Supreme Master Television. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Responsible News for a Kinder World.
Vegan couple opens plant-based soul food restaurant in United States during the pandemic.
Bryon and Natasha Dockett from Philadelphia overcame many challenges, including at one time homelessness, and succeeded in realizing their dream of opening an all-vegan, Southern American style comfort food restaurant. UnSoul Food opened in South Philadelphia on January 20th, 2021. Though the Docketts were not eligible for government grants given to help small businesses during the pandemic, their customers entered them in the Discover Eat It Forward Sweepstakes, in which deserving restaurants would receive a total of US$5 million. Through positive customer reviews, UnSoul Food was chosen to be one of the recipients and received US$25,000. Speaking of the welcomed support, Mr. Dockett said, “I am forever grateful that our customers pulled off a surprise like that.” Congratulations, Bryon and Natasha Dockett, on your much loved restaurant and on overcoming life’s adversities. May your success continue as you inspire many others to follow the virtuous vegan way of life. God bless you.
Rare albatross hatches on a remote New Zealand island.
Conservationists are hopeful that a new colony of the nearly extinct Antipodean albatross can start to thrive on the Chatham Islands in the Pacific Ocean, after a chick has successfully hatched there for the first time in seven years. The species currently has just 3,000 breeding pairs, who are each able to give birth to only one chick every two years. Since 2005, there has been a tragic 60 percent decline in the species, mainly due to the fishing industry. Therefore, New Zealand’s Department of Conservation is tracking 68 albatrosses, including the new chick, to help protect the remaining population, with funding from the marine conservation charity Live Ocean. New Zealand is a recipient of Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion and Peace, and a laureate of two Shining World Leadership Awards for Climate-Change Mitigation, and Shining World Leadership Awards for Earth Conservation, Earth Protection, Earth Guardian, and Earth Restoration. We are joyful to hear of this positive news, and many thanks to New Zealand’s Department of Conservation and Live Ocean. May all the precious beings on this planet soon live in peace and abundance, under the Divine’s gentle care.
Here is a quick massage for your belly – a joke entitled, “Meeting on the Train.” But the instruction says you must laugh to feel the effect.
Two men were sitting on a train. One was about 25, and the other was about 50. The younger man asked:
“Could you please tell me what time it is, sir?”
The older man kept silent. When the train arrived, the older man said:
“It is half past six.”
“Why didn’t you tell me when I asked?”
“If I told you the time, you would thank me. Then, I would ask you where you were going. You would tell me that you don’t know anyone in this town. I would invite you to my house. Then, you would see my daughter, fall in love with her, and want to marry her.”
“?! So what if that happened?”
“Why would I want a son-in-law that doesn’t have a watch?”
And now we have a heartline from Hsiao-Hung in Taiwan, also known as Formosa:
An ex-colleague of mine with whom I had lost touch for years suddenly contacted me through other friends, inquiring about the vegan diet and Master’s teachings. I gave him the links to Supreme Master TV and SMCHbooks.com so that it would be convenient for him to read Master’s teachings. Then I noticed that SMCHbooks.com has a brand-new look that is more refreshing, appealing, and convenient for visitors to browse. Of course, it is also because of Master’s magnetic energy. After some time, he made it a point to tell me that he really liked watching Supreme Master TV and reading Master’s teachings on the Internet. It’s an opportunity for him to know more about Master’s teachings. Besides being able to enjoy the 24-hours a day high-quality programs on Supreme Master TV, he could also download Master’s publications free of charge. He was overjoyed! After watching Supreme Master TV and reading several electronic books, he felt that his thoughts and views on things had become very positive. For things that used to bother him, he can now quickly think it through and come up with adequate solutions. Besides, he felt that he seemed to have better luck. (He looked so excited as if he had won a lotto. Ha-ha-ha!) Now, even when he is not watching Supreme Master TV, he still keeps it on all the time. (I told him that I always kept Supreme Master TV playing, and he followed my advice.) He said sometimes he merely glanced at Supreme Master TV casually, and then an answer or solution would come up to a problem that was troubling him in his mind. He said it never failed to work, as if Supreme Master TV is a tool for him to solve problems.
He said that he had also visited many related links and told me excitedly that he could watch and download Master’s videos free of charge at Edenrules.com too. I told him that’s right, and it is all due to Master’s great Compassion and Love towards all sentient beings, and all Her teachings are easy to understand. I told him that Master has instructed that all Her teachings can be watched online and downloaded totally free of charge because She wants Her teachings to benefit more people in all walks of life. He felt, “How can Master be so good?”, and that he was one of those who benefited completely from Master’s teachings. In the past, he had not understood why people should keep a vegan diet. Now, through studying Master’s teachings and watching Supreme Master TV, he had learned more about the animals and also understood more why we need to keep a vegan diet. He told me that from the day he got in touch with me until now, he had become a vegan, not eating even eggs or dairy products. He felt that he had more energy, could think much more clearly, and even became cleverer.
He also mentioned that Master is very concerned about the pandemic and has taught fellow initiates on Supreme Master TV how to avoid unnecessary contact and protect themselves from being infected when visiting public places. He said Master makes people feel so warm and much loved, and he also wanted to follow Master. I gave him the information on the prerequisites for initiation so that he could have a better understanding of what he needs to do to get initiation. I am so happy to hear such positive news and to share it with everyone. Thank You, Master, and all the working teams for working so hard in silence, so that people can feel the love and blessing and benefit greatly in all aspects of their lives. Hsiao-Hung from Taiwan (Formosa)
Benevolent Hsiao-Hung, Thank you for your wonderful feedback on the far-reaching, positive effects of Supreme Master Television. Master addresses how to manage so many areas of life, truly uplifting and encouraging viewers to make enlightened changes and Be Vegan, Make Peace.

P.S. Master replied: “Capable Hsiao-Hung, it is the noblest of deeds to help others find their spiritual path and discover why we are incarnated here on Earth. I am happy that you are sharing all you have learned, especially about being vegan, which is so very important for everyone on this planet. Well done! Much Love, and may the Divine be forever with you, and the neighborly Taiwanese (Formosan) people.”
