Update: Third victim in Maryland church shooting dies ‘Profound grief’ turns to worries of violence, homelessness, mental illness Comments (9) Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA The Rev. Mary-Marguerite Kohn speaks during a 2011 service. Kohn, co-rector of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Ellicott City, Maryland, died May 5, two days after being shot. Photo/St. Peter’s ChurchEditors note: This story was updated at 2:12 EDT May 7 to include funeral information and other details.[Episcopal News Service] The third victim in the May 3 shootings at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Ellicott City, Maryland, has died.The Rev. Mary-Marguerite Kohn, 62, died May 5 at University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore where she had been taken after the shooting and placed on life support.Brenda Brewington, 59, the parish’s administrative assistant, on May 3 had been pronounced dead at the scene in the parish office.The presumed assailant, identified by the Howard County Police Department as Douglas Franklin Jones, 56, was found in woods adjacent to the church. He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound and a gun was found nearby, police said in a May 4 statement. Police located a campsite in the woods with personal belongings and believe Jones was living there.“St. Peter’s has a long history of caring for the poor and needy in Howard County, a tradition formed at the very birth of this church in 1842, and a ministry that was lovingly continued by the Rev. Mary-Marguerite Kohn and Brenda Brewington until the tragic events of May 3,” Craig Stuart-Paul, St. Peter’s warden, said in a statement.Stuart-Paul later pledged that the parish’s ministry would continue “and we won’t do it from behind bulletproof glass.”The church offered support to mill workers and laborers since the city’s founding, continuing this service until a fire in 1939 destroyed the church. St. Peter’s was rebuilt, using many of the burned bricks from the former site, as well as labor from the then-rector the Rev. Julius Velasco, and re-opened in 1940, according to the statement.St. Peter’s members gathered May 6 for a private Eucharist to mourn the shootings and deaths. “It began the process of healing,” Stuart-Paul said after the service.“Many in the diocese wondered how long it would take until the congregation could meet in this space,” Diocese of Maryland Bishop Eugene Sutton said at St. Peter’s on Sunday, according to a Baltimore Sun newspaper report. “How long did it take? Not long.”Stuart-Paul said Brewington and Kohn were the “kindest, biggest-hearted ladies you would ever meet” and said they were “all about giving.” Kohn’s organs were donated after her death and the donations “speak something about the kind of woman she was,” he added.Howard County Police investigators have learned that Jones had recently been involved in a dispute with church members, they said in the statement. He visited the church regularly to access their food bank, but recently had become belligerent and argumentative. Police believe Jones’ anger with the church may have been the motive for the shooting, but don’t believe any specific person or people were targeted. No one else was in the building at the time of the shooting.While some earlier news reports said that Jones had been turned away from the parish’s food pantry because he came more often than policy allowed, the Sun reported that the Rev. Kirk Kubicek said during the May 6 service that Brewington had been taking Jones to the food pantry at the time of the shooting.A custodian came upon Brewington and Kohn about 5:20 p.m. May 3 in the parish office and called 911, she said.Sutton, Kubicek and other clergy who attended the Eucharist said prayers of healing over the office area prior to the service.“We will never understand it,” Kubicek said of the violence. “We will never understand it no matter how many reports come out of the Howard County Police Department, who have served us all faithfully and well, we will never understand it. But we do understand this. We come from love, we return to love, and love is all around. Brenda and Mary Marguerite have returned home. They have returned to the heart of Love, the eternal center of God’s very Being.”Sutton spoke during the service of grief and concern, but also named “anger at a society that has still not figured out how to keep guns out of the hands of those with mental illness, out of the hands of those who can cause so much damage.”There is anger toward Jones, he said, “but also acknowledgment that he was a victim, although he caused victims as well. We are followers of Christ, and so the process of forgiveness has already begun.”The Baltimore-based diocese held its 228th convention May 4-5 and began with prayer for the victims. The convention passed a condolence resolution that also called on congregations to “make appropriate provisions for the safety of their clergy, administrators, and other staff members.”Expressing “our deep concern for all victims of gun-related crimes,” the convention also said in the resolution that it “pledges to recognize and address the needs of homeless persons in our communities, as well as the needs of our brothers and sisters who suffer from mental illness” and to “challenge and condemn the violence which infects our society and relationships, and to seek peaceful means to address conflict and strife.”“Our Church, which we regard as a Sanctuary, has been violated by this senseless tragedy, leaving us feeling vulnerable, betrayed, and angered,” the convention said in the resolution’s explanation. “But our Church is also a holy icon, a gift to the world from the God of love and forgiveness. In this time of wounding, death, and brokenness, we stand with all victims and we offer our sanctuaries as places of healing, witnessing to God’s peace amidst violence and to the unbroken love that God has for all.”Kohn’s funeral will be held May 8 at 3 p.m. EDT at the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Baltimore. Donations can be made in her name to St. Peter’s and will be disbursed among several organizations and ministries Kohn supported, the diocese said.Brewington’s life will be remembered May 10 at 1:30 EDT at St. John’s Episcopal Church, which is also in Ellicott City. Interment will follow in that parish’s cemetery.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

After lifting all the victims to the Light, we wrote a note of deep sadness and sympathy to the congregation. And then we redoubled our dedication to confronting violence in our culture, especially the campaign by the NRA to put a hand-gun in the hands of every American. The Children’s Altar in the Cathedral in Baltimore, Bp. Sutton’s diocese, lights a candle for every child killed each year by gun-violence in the city. At the end of the year, the candles are “retired” at the high altar. EPF prays for the “retirement” of all our sorrow, grief and anger over the ravages in our communities caused by guns, as we work together to pass sane gun laws.

For the families, the church family and the pain of this world that leads to such senseless violence. My prayers for comfort and peace, are with the congregation and all who knew and loved the victims. My heart rejoices in the truth that death does not have the final answer, and Rev. Mary-Marguerite Kohn and Brenda Brewington are raised with Christ. My prayer is that as St. Peter’s Congregation continue on in their grief process, that they will be renewed in their call to serve the poor, and their witness will bring others to new life in Jesus Christ. God be with you all. Submit a Press Release May 9, 2012 at 3:08 pm Mary Marguerite worked with me in an AIDS ministry in Albany, NY, and was a good friend to my partner and me. Her dying was as she lived her life: caring, there for the “other”, and radically committed to the inclusive Love our Church seeks to reflect. MM’s life was not perfect nor was it easy. Yet she made us accountable to our words and let neither us nor herself off the hook with eloquent rhetoric. Her death reminds me again that most of our martyrs were not upholding intellectual “truths”. as so many of our modern literalist leaders proclaim. Rather, she…and they…were radically present, “there” in a transformed presence which sometimes leads to death. And I can just hear MM now in her characteristic phrase saying: “Oh, well!” Thanks, sister.

It is impossible for me to imagine how this horror could have been visited on this place that gave me so much love. I did not know the women who died, but perhaps their senseless deaths can serve as a renewed call for greater care for the poor and homeless which is something I understand to which they were both committed. When will we cease to arm ourselves against the imagined fears that haunt us? When will dollars spent for war and destruction be spent on bread for the poor? Yes, we are on the path of forgiveness and, pray God, we never stray from it for that will only cause a perpetuation of the violence that surrounds us.

B. ManningPfc. B. Manning testified in a military court pre-trial hearing on Nov. 29 and 30 at Fort Meade, Md., about the horrendous prison conditions this whistle-blower had to endure, particularly in Kuwait and at the Quantico Marine Corps Base in Virginia. Pfc. Manning’s court-martial trial is scheduled to begin next February. Manning could face life in a military prison if convicted.More than two and a half years ago, Manning was arrested in Afghanistan, accused of sending Pentagon and State Department documents to WikiLeaks, and transferred to Kuwait to spend two months locked in a tiny 6 foot by 8 foot cage. Manning testified: “I remember thinking, ‘I’m going to die.’ I thought I was going to die in a cage.”Then the Army transferred Manning to the brig at Quantico Marine Base in Virginia, where the outrageous treatment continued for nine months. Manning testified about often being stripped naked, and kept in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day.The brig commanders testified that all of this was a necessary “suicide watch,” even though military psychiatrists who examined Manning at Quantico testified that they told the commanders that this “watch” was not necessary. The United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture has called Manning’s treatment “cruel and unusual” and amounting to torture.A reporter from the progressive website “Democracy Now” spoke with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who has obtained sanctuary in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London. Assange said:“There’s a question about who authorized that treatment. Why was that treatment placed on him for so long, when so many people — independent psychiatrists, military psychiatrists — complained about what was going on in extremely strong terms? His lawyer and support team say that he was being treated in that manner, in part, in order to coerce some kind of statement or false confession from him that would implicate WikiLeaks as an organization and me personally.”Manning’s defense team asserts that this horrendous treatment constitutes such a travesty of justice that Manning should be released immediately.Manning’s lawyers also presented motions to modify and eliminate many of the charges against him. The military judge will rule on these motions.Of course, Manning and the defense team are completely justified in using any legal maneuver they deem necessary. But it must be clear to all progressives that Private Manning’s so-called “crime” was to refuse to silently obey illegal orders. U.S Army Field Manual 27-10 incorporates the Nuremberg Principles into military law, among them Principle IV: “The fact that a person acted pursuant to an order of his government or of a superior does not relieve him from responsibility under international law, provided a moral choice was in fact possible to him.”Since the Obama administration took office in 2009, it has refused to even investigate, let alone prosecute, the false imprisonment, torture and other war crimes committed by the George W. Bush administration, and has continued the occupation and war in Afghanistan to this day.To prosecute and torture Private Manning for allegedly disclosing secrets of the U.S. government about its culpability in acts of torture and wars and other U.S. human rights violations does indeed itself constitute a war crime. It must be stopped! Free Private Manning now!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this read more

Twitter Local NewsBusiness WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – February 8, 2021 REMOTAIR by Alisea: So fördert COVID-19 die Kreativität bei der Entwicklung innovativer Luftqualitätslösungen für HLK-Systeme Pinterest WhatsApp Pinterest TAGS Facebook MEZZANINO, Italien–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 8, 2021– REMOTAIR® ist die erste auf künstlicher Intelligenz basierende Lösung zur kontinuierlichen Überwachung des betrieblichen Zustands und der Sauberkeit eines HLK-Systems. Die zum Patent angemeldete REMOTAIR®-Technologie warnt den Anwender im Fall von kritischen Ereignissen und bietet gleichzeitig eine präventive Diagnose zum Schutz der Gesundheit und Sicherheit von Personen in industriellen, gewerblichen und privaten Umgebungen. Dabei analysieren spezielle Algorithmen, die über fünf Jahre lang entwickelt und getestet wurden, verschiedene Variablen, die von den im System installierten Sensoren und Datenerfassungstechnologien übermittelt werden. REMOTAIR® ist eine Entwicklung von Alisea s.r.l, dem führenden Unternehmen im Bereich der Verwaltung und Reinigung von HLK-Anlagen auf dem italienischen Markt. Diese Pressemitteilung enthält multimediale Inhalte. Die vollständige Mitteilung hier ansehen: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210208005551/de/ Andrea Casa – Alisea C.E.O. (Photo: Business Wire) “Zu den zahlreichen Stärken von REMOTAIR gehören insbesondere die Diagnosefunktionen sowie die Fähigkeit, verschiedene Desinfektions- und Luftreinigungsgeräte ständig zu verwalten und ihre ordnungsgemäße Funktion in Echtzeit zu überprüfen”, sagt Andrea Casa, CEO von Alisea und zugleich International Director der NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association, Nationale Vereinigung der Luftkanal-Reinigungsunternehmen). “Bei Unregelmäßigkeiten sendet das System automatisch eine Benachrichtigung, so dass die Techniker umgehend Wartungs- und Reinigungsmaßnahmen einleiten können, um die Sauberkeit und Funktionstüchtigkeit wiederherzustellen. Darüber hinaus ist es durch die künstliche Intelligenz von REMOTAIR® möglich geworden, selbstlernende Funktionen für die prädiktive Analyse zu entwickeln und damit potenzielle Gefahren für die menschliche Gesundheit weit im Voraus zu erkennen. Dies ermöglicht eine Optimierung der Kosten, insbesondere für Interventions- und Wartungsarbeiten, denn diese Kosten können erheblich sein, wenn eine Verschmutzung eines Systems bereits eingetreten ist. Dies ist ein echter Paradigmenwechsel, der Arbeitgebern die Möglichkeit gibt, den Nachweis zu führen, dass ihre HLK-Anlagen immer sauber sind – das bietet einen sicheren Schutz vor rechtlichen Risiken, die sich aus dem Besitz einer kontaminierten Anlage ergeben können. ” Alisea hat über 20 Jahre Erfahrung als führendes Luftkanalreinigungs- und HLK-Serviceunternehmen in Italien. Die Entwicklung von REMOTAIR® wurde durch diese mehr als 20-jährige Erfahrung erleichtert, die durch wichtige Kooperationen mit öffentlichen und privaten Forschungszentren unterstützt wurde. “Wir sind gerade dabei, internationale geschäftliche Partnerschaften für REMOTAIR zu schließen. Unser Ziel ist es, die Technologie, das umfassende Know-how und die Fähigkeiten des Unternehmens mit den Facility-Management-Systemen zu verbinden, die HLK-Anlagen in allen Gewerbe-, Industrie- und Wohngebäuden auf der ganzen Welt steuern”, schließt Andrea Casa.

Top StoriesSupreme Court Upholds Constitutional Validity of the Rajasthan Schools (Regulation of Fee) Act; Reads Down Sections 4, 7 and 10 LIVELAW NEWS NETWORK3 May 2021 7:51 AMShare This – xThe Supreme Court upheld the constitutional validity of the Rajasthan Schools (Regulation of Fee) Act, 2016.The bench comprising Justices AM Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari however read down Sections 4, 7 and 10 of the Act.”The dispensation envisaged under Section 6 of the impugned Act of 2016 is not intended to undermine the autonomy of the school Management in the matter of determination of fee structure itself. What it envisages is that the school Management may determine its own fee structure, but may finalise or give effect to the same after interacting with the SLFC”, the Court said.In the appeals filed before the Apex Court, the private unaided schools in the State of Rajasthan had assailed the validity of the Rajasthan Schools (Regulation of Fee) Act, 20163 , in particular Sections 3, 4, 6 to 11, 15 and 16 and the Rules framed thereunder titled Rajasthan Schools (Regulation of Fee) Rules, 2017 , in particular Rules 3, 4, 6 to 8 and 11 thereof being ultra vires the Constitution and abridge the fundamental right guaranteed under Article 19(1)(g) of the Constitution of India. The Rajasthan High Court had earlier upheld the vires of the Act.According to the managements, these provisions limit the autonomy of the school Management of private unaided schools to the level of merely proposing the school fees to the School Level Fee Committee, in which the Management has only one representative as against eight others i.e., five parents, three teachers and one principal. They contended that the State can only regulate the fees determined by the private unaided schools only if it shows that the same entails in profiteering or capitation, which is prohibited by law.Referring to the constitution bench judgments in this regard including TMA Pai Foundation case and P.A. Inamdar case, the court observed that Government has power to provide for external regulatory mechanism for determination of school fees or so to say fixation of “just” and “permissible” school fees at the initial stage itself.Regarding Section 4, the contention raised was that for choosing the willing parent to become member of the SLFC by draw of lots, no eligibility criteria has been prescribed in the Act of 2016 or the Rules of 2017. Besides, willing parent of the ward, who is admitted in the school against the 25 per cent quota of free education under the RTE Act, may also fit into this category even though he would have no stakes in the fee structure proposed by the school Management. “The argument seems to be attractive, but for that reason the provision need not be struck down or declared as violative of any constitutional right of management of the school. This provision can be read down to mean that the draw of lots would be in respect of willing parents whose wards have been admitted against the seats other than the seats reserved for free education under the RTE Act. Further, for ensuring that the willing 31 parent must be wellinformed and capable of (meaningful) interacting in the discourse on the proposal of fee structure presented by the school Management, he/she must have some minimum educational qualification and also familiar with the development of school, management of finances and dynamics of quality education. The desirability of such eligibility of the willing parent ought to be specified.”, the court said while reading down Section 4.Addressing the concerns about Section 7 and 8 of the Act, the bench observed thus in Para 37 and 38 of the Judgment:From the bare perusal of Section 7(1), it is noticed that first five members are official members. It is a broadbased independent Committee which includes two representatives of private schools in the divisional area “nominated by the Divisional Commissioner” and similarly two representatives of parents “nominated by the Divisional Commissioner”. The representation is given to the concerned stakeholders in the matter of determination of fee structure and in particular in the matter of enquiry into the factum whether fee structure proposed by the concerned school Management entails in profiteering or otherwise. In reference to Section 7(2)(a), we must observe that the term of office of representatives of the private schools and, in particular parents has been earmarked as two years from the date of their nomination. This would mean, necessarily, that the concerned parent would be eligible until his/her ward continues in the school during the tenure and is not a member of the SLFC of any school within the divisional area. Any member not fulfilling this criterion would be deemed to have vacated his office forthwith and, in his place, a new member can be nominated by the competent authority from amongst the parents of the wards pursuing studies in the school in 40 the concerned divisional area. Moreover, while nominating representative of parents, the Divisional Commissioner must keep in mind that the person so nominated must possess basic qualification of accounting, development of a school and dynamics of quality education; and whose ward has not secured admission against 25 per cent quota of free education under the RTE Act. Thus understood, even Section 7 of the Act of 2016 does not violate the fundamental right guaranteed under Article 19(1)(g) of the Constitution in respect of establishment of educational institution38. Needless to underscore that the Divisional Commissioner, who is empowered to nominate two representatives of private schools would keep in mind that his/her nominees are from the schools within the divisional area and at least one amongst them should be chosen from a minority school so that representation is given to all stakeholders, including minority and nonminority private unaided schools. At the same time, it must be borne in mind that such a person is already not a member of the SLFC of any school in the divisional area. The dispensation provided in Section 7, is, thus, to create an independent machinery for adjudication of the question as to whether the fee structure proposed/determined by the school 41 Management of the concerned school entails in profiteering, commercialisation or otherwise42. Section 10 deals with constitution of Revision Committee. This Committee discharges the function of an appellate authority where the aggrieved party, namely, school Management or the ParentTeachers Association can assail the decision of the DFRC. This is a final adjudicatory body created under Section 10 consisting of official members including two representatives of 45 private schools nominated by the State Government and two representatives of parents nominated by the State Government. This is again a broad based independent Committee to consider the revision preferred against the decision of the DFRC, constituted on similar lines. The latter Committee is constituted under Section 7 of the Act of 2016. The observations made in reference to the constitution of the DFRC under Section 7 hitherto would, therefore, apply with full force to this provision as well.The bench also observed that Section 6 does not undermine the autonomy of the school Management in the matter of determination of fee structure itself. “What it envisages is that the school Management may determine its own fee structure, but may finalise or give effect to the same after interacting with the SLFC. It is a 36 broadbased committee, consisting of representatives of the school Management as well as five parents from ParentTeachers Association. This is merely a consultative process and democratisation of the decisionmaking process by taking all the stakeholders on board. The SLFC does not sit over the proposal submitted by the school Management as a court of appeal, but only reassures itself as to whether the proposed fee structure entails in profiteering by the school on applying the parameters specified in Section 8 and Rule 10. In other words, it is open to the SLFC to take a different view regarding the school fees proposed by the school Management and arrive at a different fee structure. If that counter proposal is acceptable to the school Management, nothing further is required to be done and the decision so taken by the school Management would become binding for three academic years on all concerned. However, in case the school Management disagrees with the recommendations of the SLFC, it is open to both sides, namely, the school Management as well as the parents of wards to take the matter to the DFRC for adjudication on that aspect. While deciding the school fees, the school Management/SLFC including the Statutory Regulatory Authorities, all concerned are guided by the factors delineated in Section 8 of the Act of 2016 and Rule 10 of the Rules of 2017. Suffice it to note that the process envisaged in Section 6 is democratic and consensual resolution of the issue of fee structure for the relevant period between the school Management and the parents’ representative being part of the SLFC. It is not to give final authority to the SLFC to determine the fee structure itself which, as aforesaid, is the prerogative of the school Management as per Section 6(1) of the Act of 2016. In that sense, the autonomy of the school Management to determine the fee structure itself in the first place is untrammelled and not undermined in any way.”Case: Indian School, Jodhpur Vs.
