Media Advocate & Director of Global Dragon TV Rose Hong Promotes Natural Health Initiatives

Rose Hong Lives Her Dream Expanding TV Media Imprint. Global Dragon TV Spreads Word about Wellness & Improved Medical Opportunities.

​China, perhaps more than any other country in the world, is a nation on the move and no one is more aware of it than the director of Global Dragon TV, Rose Hong Hong, a first generation immigrant, came to the U.S. as a young student. It almost didn’t happen. In order to make it possible for Hong to come to America, her father and mother depleted their life savings, using the money to buy her a one-way plane ticket. After that, there were just enough funds left to support Hong until her scholarship money kicked in. To this day, Hong refers to her first trip to the U.S. as “a life changing journey”.

From that point on, it was almost as if Hong were on a fast track to success. In the States, Hong diligently worked non-stop, opening windows and doors to the career she wanted most. Enrolling at the University of Maryland’s Graduate School on a full scholarship, Hong studied English literature. Having grown increasingly interested in mass communications and mass media, the enterprising scholar earned a master’s degree in the field. After ther graduation, Hong worked for two decades in international media business and with several federal agencies including the Department of Treasury.

In 1997, Hong’s visionary energy once more took hold. Seeing an ever-growing “need for Chinese and health related media content,” Hong assembled a group of partners and launched Global Dragon TV. Today, Global Dragon TV offers programming seven days a week, 24 hours a day and reaches over 30 countries worldwide. Hong herself hosts and produces two weekly TV shows, American Odyssey and Whole Health Living.

Giving back to the country that has so generously granted her education and scholarship opportunities Hong has adopted is an important part of her life mission.

Hong has participated various medical missions overseas and is a board member of Montero Medical Mission, which provides medical and education outreach by sending US volunteer doctors to locations around the world.

Never forgotten her root and where she came from, Hong’s love and knowledge of Chinese culture heritage and tradition enables her to create a weekly television show “Whole Health Living,” which focuses on using traditional Chinese medicine, nutrition and exercise for disease prevention and wellness.

“China invented paper, silk, rubber, gunpowder and medical practices that changed the world, and will play a vital role in the coming millennium,” Hong said. “My favorite book is a classic, The Art of War by Sun Tsu. Written in the 5th century B.C., The Art of War is studied at West Point and by business leaders all over the planet. It is a philosophy book that is as true now as the day it was written.” Hong also praised a book that all Chinese medical practitioners consult:

“Yellow Emperor’s Inner Canon”, the earliest and most important written work of Traditional Chinese Medicine,
compiled over 2,200 years ago.

“With the aging population and rising costs of medical care worldwide, Chinese medicine’s wisdom and focus on prevention and wellness will help to ease this crisis.” Hong said.

Hong sees China, like the rest of the world, facing a global environmental and water crisis. She is committed to greater education and health opportunities through mass media and is doing much to enhance the lives of viewers everywhere.

Sharon Kleyne Wants To Cure Cholera In Yemen

Children Die by the Thousands of Cholera Outbreak in Yemen. Water Educator Sharon Kleyne Wants Cholera Wiped Out.

Sharon Kleyne, founder and director of Bio-Logic Aqua® Water Life Science®, spends a lot of her time educating others about the need to supplement the body’s evaporating water vapor with fresh water. It’s no laughing matter. Countless global water researchers, scientists and medical personnel agree with Kleyne that it’s a matter of life and death to supplement the skin, eyes and internal organs with water. These experts also agree that it’s imperative that we maintain vigilance around the world and guarding against outbreaks of water-related diseases. But sometimes such disasters are bound to happen. One is happening now as cholera has reared its ugly head once more in the war-torn country of Yemen.

According to WebMD, cholera is an infectious disease that causes severe diarrhea. This can lead to dehydration and death if not promptly treated. Cholera is caused by drinking water or eating food that is contaminated with a bacterium called Vibrio cholera. Common contaminated sources include municipal water supplies, raw and undercooked fish, seafood caught in waters tainted by sewage, veggies grown with water containing human waste, foods and drinks served by street vendors and ice made from public waters.

Cholera symptoms can come on fast, according to Kleyne, or they may appear as many as five days after exposure. Even if infected people have minimal symptoms, they can still spread the disease to others. Signs of dehydration due to excessive evaporation include loss of skin elasticity, rapid heart rate, low blood pressure, dry mucous membranes, thirst and muscle cramps. Kleyne, also the host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, wants you to know that there is a vaccine for cholera but it is not recommended by the CDC and World Health Organization. It is not recommended because it may not protect up to half of the people who use it. Also, the vaccine remains useful for only a couple of months. Your safest path, Kleyne believes, is to drink bottled water, water that has been chemically disinfected or boiled for three minutes.

The United Nations issued the dire warning that the people of Yemen face the ‘world’s worst cholera outbreak’. Current estimates suggest that more than 1,700 people have died since late April from the contagious bacterial infection, which can kill within a few hours. In Yemen, there are 320,000 suspected cases of cholera; on average, according to the news agency, Al Jazeera, 5,000 cholera cases occur each day. The UN largely blames the cholera outbreak on the ongoing hostilities that have, in two years, killed more than 10,000 people, wounded thousands and displaced millions.

If you are unfortunate enough to come down with a severe case of cholera, Kleyne recommends getting to a doctor and starting a regimen of intravenous fluids and antibiotics. The antibiotics are additionally useful in restricting the spread of the disease; the intravenous fluids and water will replenish the fluids you’ve lost. Kleyne knows that if you keep yourself hydrated, you should be able to avoid an affliction like cholera—and that is something you really do want to avoid! Needless to say, travel to Yemen is also discouraged.

Cecil & Kleyne Share Views On Climatology & Evaporation

Kleyne & Cecil Agree More Water & Evaporation Education Is Needed. More Education Is Essential To Protecting Our Planet of Water.

Fellow water researcher and Chief Climatologist, L. DeWayne Cecil, Ph.D., recently visited Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® to talk about climatology and the need for more education about water and dehydration—excessive evaporation of body water vapor and atmospheric water vapor.

“I am a Paleo-climatologist,” Cecil explained. Dr. Cecil described how he studies tree rings, lake sediment and past climate change cycles to see if he can draw useful conclusions about current trends. Cecil, formerly employed with the U.S. Geological Survey, also worked for a time at NASA where he specialized in satellite imaging to view climatic trends. Cecil’s current position is Western Region Climate Services Director for the NOAA-NCDC

Like Kleyne, Cecil consistently calls for more comprehensive and inspiring education about water research and evaporation. Cecil shared a similar commitment to education in his current work. “Much of our effort now is concentrated on education,” said Cecil. “We intend to involve citizens and stakeholders in developing solutions that are called for in specific areas,” Cecil explained. “I think of this as being proactive as we deal with soil restoration, drought, flooding, crop issues and many other situations.” He added that the NOAA-NCDC is making appropriate use of town hall meetings and symposiums across all six regions of the country.

Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, encouraged Cecil to express his opinion that water plays a major role on weather and the climate. “Water is extremely important in a balanced atmosphere,” Cecil said. “In the atmosphere, the climate is strongly affected by water.” When Kleyne speculated that many people find this difficult to understand Cecil agreed, pointing out that his team’s education efforts include teaching people how ground water evaporates and rises, becoming a gas that not only gives life to the air we breathe, but also has the potential to change weather patterns and the climate.

“People should also learn,” said Kleyne, that evaporation is the process by which water is turned into a gas—a vapor—that enters the atmosphere and creates the air we breathe.“ Cecil stated that our weather and climate were already experiencing dramatic changes, many of them life-threatening. “We’ll all be sorry,” Kleyne said, “if we don’t do a much better job educating the general public about evaporation, the water mist cycle and the climate.”

Looking back on his own experience, Cecil shared one of the earliest events that inspired him to become a scientist and researcher. “It was the photographs taken of the earth and space by the Apollo astronauts,” he said. “There was that beautiful blue marble,” Cecil said, “and I thought, ‘it really is a water planet!’”

NASA Warns That World’s Aquifers Are Drying Up

Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Calls Attention to NASA Water Crisis Findings. Sharon Kleyne Says UN Must Do More Than It Is Doing About Water Crisis.

Sharon Kleyne, like water advocates everywhere, is happy to see NASA weigh in on the world’s water crisis with its advanced research and technology, but the actual findings are disturbing. “NASA’s findings,” said Kleyne, “underscore the need for more education about water and the process of water evaporation and for the United Nations do more about the world’s water crisis than just talk and spend grant money.”

According to NASA satellite data, twenty-one of the world’s 37 largest aquifers “have passed their sustainability tipping points, meaning more water was removed than replaced during the decade-long study period.” Unfortunately, researchers concluded that this is a global problem that appears to be getting worse, not better. In fact, 15 of the aquifers were categorized as critical. Reporting on the study, Todd C. Frankel wrote that “Scientists had long suspected that humans were taxing the world’s underground water supply, but the NASA data was the first detailed assessment to demonstrate that major aquifers were indeed struggling to keep pace with demands from agriculture, growing populations and industries such as mining.”

“The situation is quite critical,” said Jay Famiglietti, senior water scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California and principal investigator of the University of California Irvine-led studies. Aquifers supply 35% of the water used by humans and that percentage spikes in times of drought. For instance, during California’s drought, aquifer water use climbed to 60 percent. “The water table is dropping all over the world,” Famiglietti said. “There’s not an infinite supply of water.” Famiglietti went on to say that our problems with ground water are made worse by global warming. People who live in the mid-range latitudes pump more water out of aquifers to deal with dry conditions. Once that water is pumped from the ground, evaporates and gets recirculated to areas farther north and south.

Scientists also say that steps to reverse this situation may be too little, too late. They point to California where the Central Valley aquifer is the most troubled aquifer in the U.S. It’s being drained to irrigate farm fields. The state passed is first extensive groundwater regulations in 2014, but t could take two decades before the new law takes full effect. By then, the aquifer may be empty.

Such dire forecasts urge Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, and others to call on the UN to become much more proactive about water education and research. “The UN also needs to get into the fields and do something about all of the lost groundwater that is running off to the oceans,” said Kleyne. Kleyne knows that replenishing an aquifer is a slow process, sometimes taking thousands of years. “We have to start now,” said Kleyne, “or we will soon be dry.” Kleyne also calls for new, advanced water technology to make use of recently discovered, untapped aquifers in Africa and deep under California’s Central Valley.

Sharon Kleyne Cites China’s Chengdu As Model Water Developer

Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Calls Attention to UNIDO-China Cooperation. United Nations Sponsors BOT Projects in Developing Countries.

When China’s economic reforms began in 1978, Chengdu, provincial capital of Sichuan Province in southwest China, was one of many cities that swiftly experienced fresh water shortages. Population skyrocketed (from half-a-million people to over 9 million in twenty-five years) and existing infrastructure was strained to the breaking point. Obviously, the city desperately needed new water facilities and rejuvenated existing ones. Water Educator Sharon Kleyne observed that this situation was and is facing communities all over the world and we need leaders and researchers to step up to find viable solutions to the world’s fresh water crisis.

Enter, at the invitation of the Chinese government, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). UNIDO partnered with China’s Ministry of Light Industry to offer foreign investment programs in Chengdu and other provinces. UNIDO offered technical support and mentored China in absorbing foreign investment. UNIDO also supported the State Planning Commission as it created regulations to establish standard concession agreements for Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) projects in the road, power and water sectors.

This led to one of the first three BOT projects in China. Beginning in 1999, Chengdu #6 Water Plant was designed and created by a joint venture made up of the French Companie Generale Des Eaux (CGE) and the Japanese company, Marubeni, which was granted the rights to operate the plant for 18 years. Thanks to this cooperative project, Chengdu and developing industrial zones in the region benefited from new technology that processed treated water in a cost-effective manner. The project also included best practices for the management and operation of water treatment facilities. This investment in clean water was essential to the health and development of Chengdu and its entire neighboring region. An Asian Development Bank Report stated that “without the public-private partnership, the city of Chengdu would not have been able to expand its water supply capacity so quickly or be equipped to meet the demand for a growing economy.”

UNIDO’s goals through 2030 include its Agenda for Sustainable Development and in particular to Sustainable Development Goal 9—Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.

Water advocate Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, applauds the UN’s earlier and current efforts through its UNIDO program, yet she is not satisfied that the international organization is doing all that it might to make a more positive impact on the water crisis facing the planet. “The UN could do a lot more in terms of water education and new water research, especially among young people,” Kleyne said. “We can’t be satisfied with the UN or anyone else until we find workable solutions for the world’s water crisis.”

Sharon Kleyne Asks Why Can’t We Collect More Rain

The World Has Experienced Climate Change Since the Beginning of Time Says Kleyne. Catching More Rain Would More Than Offset Global Warming Says Kleyne.

Water advocate and Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® founder and director Sharon Kleyne has challenged world leaders and researchers to make water infrastructure their number one priority. Kleyne also insists that they discover and develop new water technology that will allow humanity to capture much more rainfall than it is currently doing. Kleyne believes that by doing so, coupled with the recent discoveries of untapped aquifers in Africa and California would effectively do a lot to lessen the impact of the global warming and dramatic climate change we have witnessed since the dawn of the industrial revolution.

Kleyne reminds people that the world and its watery atmosphere has always experienced climate change. “That’s nothing new,” said Kleyne. “Millions of years ago super volcanoes were polluting the atmosphere just like our automobile and industry carbon emissions do today.” This is a detail that watchdog organizations like NASA and the United Nations inconveniently overlook in their research and assessments that claim human activity accounts for the current global climate crisis. “What’s going on with the weather is natural,” said Kleyne. “It’s happened before and will happen again.”

Meanwhile, Kleyne sticks to her point that much relief could come our way if we redirected our focus onto collecting rain water and preserving and developing new aquifers and reservoirs. “The average person doesn’t take water seriously enough,” said Kleyne, “and world leaders and organizations like the UN have so far been reluctant to devote the necessary resources to education and new technology.” Without these resources, Kleyne believes that we will continue to waste vast quantities of fresh water as it runs off to the oceans.

And what happens as we lose more and more fresh water? According to Kleyne, illnesses increase on a global scale and cures become scarcer and scarcer as we treat symptoms rather than find and develop cures. Kleyne believes that we all must get more serious about health and water education. “We all need to be more proactive,” says Kleyne, “or we’ll be facing global epidemics and fresh water shortages like nothing we’ve ever seen before.”

How Do We Stop Losing Water To The Oceans Asks Sharon Kleyne

Where Is the New Water Technology That Will Prevent Water Running Away to the Oceans. Sharon Kleyne Rainwater Is Escaping Human Use at an Alarming Rate.

Sharon Kleyne, founder and director of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® is concerned about the process of fresh water running off to the oceans and she would like government leaders and scientists to commit to programs and new technology that will allow us to save this precious resource for human health and use. Kleyne, of course, is not arguing that oceans are bad! Quite the opposite is true. Oceans are giant receptacles of water that evaporates and replenishes the earth’s atmosphere. Water running into the oceans from rivers and as rain is a natural part of the process.

Yet, as the world contends with water shortages and a water crisis that negatively affects human health, Kleyne and other researchers are concerned that too much water run-off is creating a dangerous imbalance.

But just how much water are we talking about? According to the USGS Water Science School, only a third of the rainwater that falls over land runs off into streams and rivers and returns to the oceans. The other two-thirds evaporates or soaks into groundwater. Surface runoff can also be diverted by humans for their own uses. In fact, the most runoff occurs in heavily populated and industrial areas where roads and concrete and asphalt create relatively non-porous surfaces over which water rapidly travels. Where humans are most active, rainwater runoff will be at its highest.

Other factors contributing to runoff include type of precipitation (rain, snow, hale), rainfall amount, duration and intensity, temperature, wind and humidity. These are called meteorological factors. Physical factors affecting runoff include topography, elevation and the presence of lakes, ponds, reservoirs and streams that prevent rapid runoff.

What Kleyne and other water advocates would like to see is research and new technology that would make it feasible to capture much more of the rainwater that currently runs to the oceans so that it can be put to human use. Kleyne believes that will take a lot more water education for everyone and much more commitment from our local and national elected officials.
