Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Jason Corbett pictured with his two children Jack (10) and Sarah (8)by Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up AS JASON Corbett’s body was brought back to Limerick on this Thursday morning, a custody battle was looming over the future of his two Irish-born children left traumatised by their father’s death in a domestic incident at their North Carolina home last week.On Sunday, August 2, police and emergency paramedics responding to an emergency call found the 39 year-old Limerick businessman in his home with serious head injuries.The fatal injuries were sustained as a result of what local police say was “a blunt force trauma to the head”.But in the wake of that tragedy, Mr Corbett’s two children are now at the centre of a bitter custody battle between their legal guardians and the chief suspect in the Limerick man’s killing.Having left her holiday in France, Tracey Lynch, Jason’s sister, went to the US where she has led the fight to get both her brother’s body and his two children home to Ireland. She says she wants a quick resolution to the issue to allow her grieve her bother’s violent death.And the Corbett family have vowed that they will not bury Jason until they have full custody of his two children.This Friday, a judge is to decide the outcome of the custody hearing over the guardianship of Jack and Sarah Corbett who have been living in the home where their father was killed last week.Mr Corbett’s second wife, Molly Martens, who is a US citizen was granted temporary custody of the two young children whose father was killed in what local police have described as a “domestic disturbance”.A police spokesman said they are not looking outside the family home for anyone else in connection with Mr Corbett’s death.Jack and Sarah’s legal guardians are his sister Tracey and her husband David Lynch and the family members who have remained home in Limerick say they are desperate for news of developments that will finally see Jason laid to rest and his children back on Irish soil.It is understood that there has been very little contact with the children and their extended Limerick family since their father’s death.Ms Lynch said that Jason left written instructions asking that his children return to Ireland in the event of his death.“It’s what Jason wanted. Jason left instructions that my husband and I would be the guardians of Jack and Sarah.”Speaking from North Carolina on Tuesday night, Ms Lynch said that she was getting to grips with the legal process and she was hopeful of a positive outcome.“I have confidence in the system here, that they will allow Jack and Sarah to come home. They’re Irish citizens, they’re on their dad’s work visa and they’ve no relatives in America.“All of Jason’s family and friends, the children’s biological grandparents, both sets, are in Ireland waiting for us to come home with Jack and Sarah.”She said that her brother loved his family and friends.“He wanted to come home. We’re just here trying to give Jason a voice. I know what his wishes were.“I’m heartbroken, and I want to go home and be allowed to grieve the loss of one of the most important people in my world with my family.”Mr Corbett who moved to the US four years ago and after the death of his first wife Mags in 2006 from a asthma attack, died at his home in Panther Creek Court, Wallburg in North Carolina.A Delta flight carrying Mr Corbett’s remains touched down this Thursday morning in Dublin Airport after the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust assisted the Corbett family with the arrangements.The trust offers financial assistance to bereaved families to repatriate bodies of their loved ones who have died abroad in sudden or tragic circumstances.Trust co-founder Colin Bell said he was pleased that the trust could help.“This is what we do, this is why we set up the trust, to help people in this situation,” he explained. Mr Bell’s son Kevin was 26 when he was killed in an accident in New York in June 2013 and hss death led Mr Bell and his wife Eithne to establish the trust.The first steps in securing Jack and Sarah Corbett’s future will be decided on this Friday when the children’s legal guardians attempt to secure a ruling allowing them to return home to Ireland.Social media campaigns, personal tributes, petitions and fundraising activities have all been initiated in Ireland in support of the young Corbett children with calls being made for Government intervention at the highest level.The expenditure facing the Corbett family is set to run into the tens of thousands and donations to help fund #jasonsjourney and to #bringjacksarahhome are being accepted through Limerick bank accounts and online.

HR HartleyOn 25 May 2004 in Personnel Today Why is the tube cutting back on trainingA while back I attended a Chartered Institute of Personnel and Developmentgathering in London, debating how to prove a return on investment (ROI) intraining to an organisation. I don’t know if anyone from London Underground was there. If they weren’t,they should have been, for they could have shed some light on why they aresupposedly failing to provide adequate staff training on how to deal with aterrorist attack on London. It was brought to my attention by a recent Panorama programme that LondonUnderground staff have received no training on this issue whatsoever. Workersinterviewed by the programme said they’d had a few tips handed around on asheet of paper. But apart from that, there’s been zilch – no simulation of whatthe situation would be like, or information on who would call who and on what(walkie talkies and mobile phones don’t work in tunnels, as you may well havenoticed), or how to deal with the injured and trapped, and what to seal offwhere. As one worker put it: “We’re in the front line in such an eventbecause we’ll be there before any other services, yet we wouldn’t have a cluewhat to do.” Panorama presented a fictional scenario and a highly believable recipe fordisaster. It ‘exploded’ four bombs in different locations across theUnderground network, and then ‘crashed’ a tanker filled with chlorine close tothe City. A crisis panel made up of a former Met Police chief, an intelligenceofficer and a politician, among others, then had to orchestrate dealing withthe aftermath. It failed dismally, severely hampered by under-resourced andunprepared key services, traffic jams and poor communications between disparategroups such as the Territorial Army. If the London Underground has held back on training staff to deal with whathas now become a likely event because it cannot justify ROI, then the world hasgone quite mad.

Instant issuance has become a valuable service offering for credit unions as they respond to on-demand member expectations, expedite cards into members’ hands, and capture greater interchange revenue potential.For credit unions exploring instant issuance, the big question is whether to adopt a Software for Purchase (SFP) or Software as a Service (SaaS) model, says Rob Dixon, [email protected] product manager for CPI Card Group.He breaks down key considerations credit unions face when evaluating these two options.CUNA News: What do credit unions need to consider when evaluating an instant issuance solution?Dixon: To begin, establishing responsibilities around cryptographic keys is crucial. Financial institutions receive encrypted keys from their processor for bank identification numbers (BINs), which are used as each card is printed to calculate payment card values. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

AAF POWER RANKINGS:Where teams stand going into Week 4″One of the things I took away from my father was that — 17 years ago one of the biggest mistakes they made in launching the XFL was that it was about, ‘The NFL was the No Fun League!’ and they’re going to compete with the NFL,” Ebersol told Business Insider. “It tells players they should not play in your league, because their ultimate goal — to get back to the NFL and play in the Super Bowl — will be undermined by the fact that you’re directly competing with the partner that you want to be in business with.”So since the goal of the AAF is to drive talent to the NFL, we thought it’d be good to look at players are on track to make that dream happen. We’ll list 10 — five on offense, and five on defense — players who have already made a huge impact through three weeks.These players are in no particular order.Garrett Gilbert, QBGilbert walked away from an NFL futures contract to play in the AAF, and so far it’s proving to be the right decision. He has been the MVP through three weeks, as he leads the league in passing (827 yards) and even has a rushing and receiving touchdown on the season.He has the fourth-highest completion percentage (59.3) among QBs with at least 50 pass attempts and has five passing touchdowns (second-most in the league) with no interceptions. He has great receivers, which has helped, but he has made a case to at least earn a roster spot on an NFL club next season.Gilbert already has some NFL experience, as he bounced around from the Rams, Patriots, Lions and Raiders. He saw some action last season with the Panthers, completing two of three passes in the final game of the season.Luis Perez, QBAs many as eight NFL teams have reportedly already incquired about Perez after watching him play in the AAF. His numbers won’t jump off the page when you see them, but that’s because his receivers have let him down with several dropped passes.NFL reporter Benjamin Allbright explained why Perez is NFL ready.”(He) reads the field quickly, has a strong arm will remind you of Joe Flacco as a player,” Allbright told Sporting News. “Downsides, (he) has slow feet and will occasionaly force throws.”Ja’Quan Gardner, RBHE. IS. GONE. 83 yards, touchdown @aaffleet ! @_JGWentworth_32 | #SAvsSD pic.twitter.com/l5zXlxalCE— The Alliance (@TheAAF) February 25, 2019There have only been three 100-yard rushing performances in the AAF so far, and Gardner has two of them. Listed at 5-7, 206 pounds, Gardner is an explosive back who is averaging a ridiculous 8.0 yards per carry (although his 83-yard run inflates that number).He simply has been too productive not to get an invite once training camp comes around. At a time when teams are going to a committee backfield, Gardner can fill a role somewhere in the NFL.Charles Johnson, WRJohnson was a seventh-round pick in 2013 by the Packers and has bounced around multiple NFL teams (Browns, Vikings, Panthers, Jets) before landing with the Apollos. He made the biggest impact in Minnesota, where he played in 39 games, catching 60 passes for 834 yards and two touchdowns.He has not played in an NFL regular-season game since 2016, but he is making a case to come back next season. He currently leads the AAF in receiving yards (305) and is second in receptions (14). He has been great after the catch, leading all receivers in YAC with 100.Johnson was with the Jets in the preseason last year, so it seems likely he’ll wind up somewhere again in 2019.Rashad Ross, WRRoss leads the league in receptions, hauling in 15-of-19 targets for 221 yards (second-most in the league) and four touchdowns (leads the league). He has been on nine NFL rosters since going undrafted in 2013 but hasn’t been able to stay in one place for too long.I think guys like Charles Johnson & Rashad Ross can definitely play in NFL. But their teams never made serious investments in them & were never truly committed to fostering their success. https://t.co/ggMSHvHwEn— Evan Silva (@evansilva) February 18, 2019He runs routes well, he has caught most of his targets, he has found the endzone more than any other receiver and he gets yards after the catch. He certainly seems destined to make it on an NFL roster next season.Jamar Summers, CBSummers has two interceptions, a forced fumble and seven pass deflections through three games for the Iron. He is even helping out in areas that don’t immediately show up in the box scores.”If one person has made a name for themselves this season on defense, arguably the loudest of those names being shouted is Jamar Summers,” Pro Football Focus’s Cam Mellor writes. “For the season, he has now given up just four receptions on 15 targets and has a 0.0 passer rating into his coverage.”Summers has been a big contributor to the Iron’s tough defense, which is allowing a league-low seven points per game. He spent some time with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent last season, but we expect he’ll get a lot more looks in 2019 if he keeps up this play in the AAF.Terence Garvin, LBTerence Garvin pick six pic.twitter.com/hm3b1PiAdU— Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) February 10, 2019Garvin leads the league with three interceptions, has 11 total tackles (including one for loss) and four pass breakups on the season. He earned Defensive Player of the Week honors after Week 1 and has continued to produce since.After going undrafted in 2013, Garvin spent time on five different NFL teams but never really got much playing time on any of them. His most notable moment was in 2013, when he broke the jaw of Bengals punter Kevin Huber on a hard hit.Even if Garvin can’t make the field as a defender, he can at least get a look as a special teams player, which he has done for the majority of his brief NFL career.Damontre Moore, DEMoore was PFF’s highest-graded edge defender after Week 2 and continued his dominance in Week 3. He has two sacks on the season and has a league-leading nine quarterback hits while also leading the league in QB pressures.This shouldn’t be much of a surprsie, as Moore was a third-round draft pick in 2013 after being a consensus first-team All-American at Texas A&M in 2012. The talent was always there for Moore, but he had some maturity issues that led to his release from the Giants. According to Jay Glazer, Moore had been fighting with his teammates, and it got to a point where he was no longer welcomed on the team. He signed with five other NFL teams after that and served a two-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy in 2017.Moore has been an absolute force in the AAF, and if he can stay on the right path, he’ll earn an invite to an NFL club this season.Karter Schult, DESchult has 11 tackles, six tackles for loss, four sacks (league-leader), eight QB hits (second in league) and a forced fumble already this season. Before playing in the AAF, Schult spent some time in the NFL with the Panthers and Browns but didn’t play in any games.He has had a sack in every game this season and continues to pressure quarterbacks no matter the opponent. An NFL team looking for pass-rushing depth should look at Schult and his production from the AAF.Keith Reaser, DBReaser earned a 90.6 grade from PFF after Week 1 and a 92.4 grade for Week 2. Perhaps the only reason he was left off Week 3 was because he suffered an injury in the game. He allowed just two receptions on five targets for 14 yards in his first game, then three receptions on eight targets for six yards in his second.Reaser has two interceptions and six pass deflections on the season, making a case for one of the best pass defenders in the AAF. He was a fifth-round draft pick by the 49ers in 2014 and spent some time with the Chiefs after that. The Alliance of American Football league is open about wanting to be a farm system of sorts for the NFL. The league has an “NFL out” written into its player contracts, allowing players in the league to sign with an NFL team if given the opportunity. Players can leave from the end of the AAF championship game to Dec. 1st of the same year.AAF co-founder Charlie Ebersol has said in a number of interviews that he wants his league to be a developmental stage for players wanting to get back into the NFL. His dad, Dick Ebersol, is a television executive at NBC, who was also an original XFL partner. Also, a fun fact: Reaser is the cousin of the late Sean Taylor.Looking aheadWith 32 NFL teams that have 90 roster spots for training camp (2,880 total players), there will be more than just 10 players from the AAF to get an invite.While these 10 players are making the best cases of making 53-man rosters once the 90-man units are cut down, several other great players in the AAF should receive camp invites (Quinton Patton, Zac Stacy, D’Ernest Johnson, Mekale McKay, etc.) once the season comes to an end.
