Taiwan, also known as Formosa, provides aid to Haiti after 7.2-magnitude earthquake.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) has donated US$500,000 in relief supplies to Haiti to alleviate the severe consequences of the August 14, 2021 temblor in the Caribbean nation. Additionally, the government has sent oxygen concentrators, personal protective equipment, sleeping bags and food. MOFA had also offered to send a rescue team immediately following the quake. Over 2,200 people have died, and more than 12,700 people were injured in the disaster. Also, many houses and roads were seriously damaged.
On August 16, 2021, Supreme Master Ching Hai also arranged to send a humble US$30,000 to the Haiti Red Cross (through the International Committee of the Red Cross) for the victims, “with all love and sorrowful prayers for the deceased and for the speedy recovery of the nation.”
Taiwan (Formosa) is a Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion recipient. Many thanks, Taiwan (Formosa) Ministry of Foreign Affairs, for your generous help to the affected Haitians. Surely, the caring Haitian people are truly grateful for your kind assistance. We pray that the injured and displaced citizens of Haiti soon are able to resume their normal lives, in Heaven’s infinite grace.
Emperor penguins may become quasi-extinct due to climate change.
A new study warns that if global warming continues its current trajectory, causing sea ice coverage to shrink further, the population of the emperor penguins is projected to slowly decline until 2040, then diminish greatly thereafter, with 98% of the colonies gone by 2100. Currently, there are approximately 60 colonies in Antarctica, with an estimated 236,000 breeding pairs. They depend on the right amount of sea ice for breeding, molting, and feeding. To protect the emperor penguins’ future, the study’s lead author Dr. Stephanie Jenouvrier of the United States-based Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution urged for “immediate actions to decarbonize” our world and enhanced safeguards for species endangered by the climate crisis. Many thanks for this important investigation, Dr. Stephanie Jenouvrier and all scientists involved. For the survival of all beings, may humanity urgently embrace compassionate living, in God’s omniscience.
Up next, Singapore purifies wastewater to meet 40% of water needs. We’ll just pause to thank the User Experience (UX) designers, who develop products and services to create seamless customer experiences. We’ll be right back, with more alleviating news on Supreme Master Television. Vegan: cuz hell won’t recognize even the highest position on Earth, except virtue.
Good day, inquisitive viewers, it’s Pamela the vegan Dog-faced Puffer! I am always up-to-date with cool trends! Being vegan is THE mainstream trend nowadays and it’s beneficial to all. Join in! Today, I have a helpful driving tip for you. Be sure you don’t shift gears from drive to reverse while your car is moving, as this can damage the transmission. Cars with a reverse inhibitor function will override this request either through the onboard computer or mechanically. Older cars may not have this safety feature. In any case, it is wise not to purposely test the system to protect it. Similarly, attempting to shift into reverse with a manual transmission vehicle while it is in motion may seriously harm the transmission. Much love for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all humans and us all co-inhabitants. Thank you for watching. And now for the weather around the world.
Recycled water meets about 40% of Singapore’s water demand.
The nation’s water treatment system turns 900 million liters of wastewater into clean water daily and aims to meet 55% of the country’s water demand by 2060. Instead of discharging most of the nation’s wastewater into the ocean, the water is treated with advanced filtration processes and ultraviolet rays to remove impurities, bacteria and viruses. The treated water, termed NEWater, is largely used for industrial purposes, and can also be added to the drinking water supply in reservoirs following further treatment. The government of Singapore will have invested US$7.4 billion in updating its water treatment facilities by 2025, when it completes a new tunnel system and sewage plant to expand capacity. Our sincere appreciation, innovative Singapore, for cherishing every drop of water and reducing ocean pollution. May all countries follow your lead to adopt self-sufficient, Earth-saving water recycling methods, in Celestial delight.
Czech Republic researchers find listening to Mozart can inhibit epileptic brain activity.
Scientists led by Professor Ivan Rektor, of the Hospital St. Anne and Masaryk University, have discovered that listening to Mozart’s Sonata for Two Pianos K448 can reduce epileptiform discharges (EDs) by 32%. EDs are brainwaves linked to epileptic seizures. It was also found that listening to Haydn’s Symphony No. 94 actually increased EDs in men by 45%, yet decreased them in women. This was attributed to the differences in men’s and women’s responses to the acoustic features of the composition, with women’s brains benefiting from the music decreasing in loudness as it progressed. Professor Rektor envisions that the research may lead the way towards treating epilepsy with music. Fascinating news, Professor Ivan Rektor and co-researchers, on the potential to treat epilepsy with classical music. In the protection of the Providence, may we discover more natural healing methods to enhance our well-being.
Community-focused evacuation plan facilitates residents rapidly fleeing wildfire in United States.
At the start of September 2021, as the Caldor Fire spread near South Lake Tahoe, California, United States, the Golden Bear community put their years of preparation into action and safely evacuated within 15 minutes. For the last two years, the residents have partnered with local fire districts and public land management agencies to implement the Tahoe Resource Conservation District’s Fire Adapted Communities Program. The initiative prepared participants by hosting firefighter workshops, organizing the clearing of ignitable materials and plants in yards and around homes as well as testing emergency notification systems. Steve Martenson, one of the residents, shared that whatever the situation is, the community will deal with it together. We are so relieved you escaped in time, Golden Bear community members. May all those affected by the Caldor Fire be safe and have their needs met, in God’s mercy.

Brown bears rescued and transferred to forever home in United States.
Syrian brown bears Homer and Ulysses, both 18-years-old, have been saved after spending over 10 years in a private zoo in Lebanon. They were existing in deplorable conditions, housed in small cement cages, lacking proper food and veterinary care. The bears were flown to the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado, USA. Local non-governmental organization Animals Lebanon, and the global animal welfare entity, FOUR PAWS International, partnered in the rescue. Commenting on the bears’ relocation, Animals Lebanon director Jason Mier said, “For the first time in their life, they can actually be bears, with large natural enclosures, and the ability to experience and enjoy their days,” FOUR PAWS International is a Shining World Compassion Award laureate. Our heartfelt appreciation, FOUR PAWS International, Animals Lebanon and Wild Animal Sanctuary, for giving lovely Ulysses and Homer a new wonderful chapter in their life. In Heaven’s benevolence, may all animals be free to enjoy their lives in safety and joy.
We hope you swept the floor this morning because you are about to be rolling with laughter from the joke of the day called, “Friendly Sale.”
Theo is planning a garage sale and asks his friends if they have anything they want to sell. On the day of the event, Theo’s friend Toby brings 4 tires to sell for 30 dollars a piece. A few hours go by.
“I have to leave for a bit. While I’m gone, can you see if anyone wants them?”
“Yes, sure, but how low are you willing to go?”
“Try to see if you can sell them for 30 dollars, but I’m willing to go as low as 15 dollars each.”
“After some time, Toby comes back and notices his tires are gone.”
“What happened to the tires?”
“I sold them.”
“How much did you get for them?”
“15 dollars each.”
“Who bought them?”
And now we have a heartline from One in the land of Rumi (Iran):
For The Lord of the Universe, Tim Qo Tu, the most Beloved Ultimate Master, after Her Conference with the Supreme Master Television team on April 15, 2021.
I am being completed because of Your Love! I am reaching the end, because of all the sacrifices You do. There will be nothing and naught of “me” left When You say, To save all beings on Earth You are willing to stay in hell alone! And You accept every punishment As we will be Your witnesses! And I was thinking to myself: Since my childhood, I have been searching for God, Even I used to see God in the face of a beautiful woman! Birth after birth, sometimes with You, sometimes not! And my soul is full of unhealed wounds of separation! If You must choose hell in another pact, Just know this: I do not want Heaven without You Even for a fraction of a second. I’ve forgiven the sinner that I was, with so much pain, Just with the Love of being with You. And I still endure all the wounds and invisible bullets from the people in the bitter times, just because of Your Love! Even I hanged myself in one birth, from the pain of not being with You, and I paid so dearly for that! The pain of being re-born among the enemies, The pain of separation from You! But I acted out this drama fully, Till a day I could be with You forever. Now, if You will go to hell, to save those engrossed with their ignorance, Just know that, Even if it’s the worst, unimaginable hell, I’ll accept it with my whole being Just to be beside You. But I am sure that I am not alone, As there are many among Your followers, Ready to sacrifice themselves for You. (As ‘Merlin’ ‘Hòa’ was!) Just know that if You are so much in love with all these beings, We are only in Love with You! (Together with You We gaze in the same direction!) One from the land of Rumi (Iran)
Tenderhearted One from the land of Rumi, With the same sense of longing to be one with the Beloved Lord of All the Worlds, we thank you deeply from our hearts for your expressive words, which we are unable to portray. Yet with ease, you have done so beautifully despite the limitations of this world.
Be comforted as Master sends Her Love through the following lines: “Oh dear God’s Faithful One from the land of Rumi, my tearful appreciation for your outpouring of love through the heartfelt poem. I enjoy your poem as much as it also makes me proud to have such a disciple. In this crowded but lonely world, a companion like this is more than fortunate. Thank you dearly. I am always by your side. Even from hell, will send you my love. Please, my love, do not ever wish to be in hell. It is a painful place beyond imagination in all aspects. Even if I have to endure it for the sake of all beings, you do not want to go there to accompany me. That will defeat my purpose. You will go to New Realm that was created for you and other deserving souls. I want nothing but for you to be happy, now and hereafter. God bless your noble heart. I am so touched and continue to pray for all beings to awaken soon and recognize their true noble nature to return to their original Home where eternal life awaits. May you and your loyal fellow Iranians forever have peace in your hearts, in Allah’s eternal Grace.”
