Miami Dade County County Jail(ALLENTOWN, Pa.) — When the frantic search for a 16-year-old girl culminated on Saturday with U.S. Marshals and Mexican authorities finding her at the Mexican port town of Puerto Morelos, her mother was relieved.“I’m really happy. Please let everyone know,” Amy Yu’s mother, Mui Luu, told ABC News.She had feared the worst after her daughter ran off with a 45-year-old married man named Kevin Esterly.After they were finally found, they were taken to Miami Saturday night.Just days before receiving the good news, however, Luu gave an extensive interview to ABC News admitting her regret for arguing with her daughter before her disappearance and her anger at Esterly.“Nobody can help,” Luu said about her daughter’s return. “They just hide and hide. It’s so difficult to find them.”Her daughter vanished with what Luu described as “a little bit of jewelry, her passport and a couple hundred dollars.”The mother said she regretted fighting with her daughter before she fled.“The last day, I called Amy and we talked I yelled at her, and so she got mad,” Luu said.The sophomore student was signed out of Lehigh Valley Academy on March 5 by Esterly, according to the Allentown Police Department. Esterly, a cement contractor, allegedly claimed to be her stepfather and, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed by the Lehigh County Deputy District Attorney Matthew Falk, he “fraudulently signed her out of school” early at least 10 times between December and Feb. 9.But this time, authorities said Esterly withdrew $4,000 from his wife’s bank account and caught a one-way flight to Cancun, Mexico, by way of Dallas along with Amy.While she is back home, any kind of homecoming with Amy is being delayed because the youth is staying at a Pennsylvania hospital, her mother said.Meanwhile, Esterly remains behind bars in Miami and faces a felony charge of custodial interference.During a short hearing on Monday, Esterly didn’t fight extradition back to Lehigh County.“I’d like to go back to Pennsylvania as soon as possible,” he told the judge.In the throes of worry and reflection, Luu wondered if she could have done more to keep Amy away from from the married man.“Every day she would go out — sometimes for two hours and I ask her ‘Why do you go out? Every day you go out!’” she said she told Amy. “Sometime she would be gone overnight….“It’s difficult teaching the teenagers because they won’t listen to the parents,” she added.Luu said that she had been raising Amy and her brother, John, by herself ever since their biological father went to China.“He left to go back to China and he can’t come back,” she said.For almost a decade, Luu’s daughter attended a Lehigh county church.It was at this church that Luu said Amy forged a friendship with one of Esterly’s four daughters.“I know him from church, both him and his family [for] many years,” Luu told ABC News in an earlier interview before Amy was found. “He had four daughters and wife and his daughter is just one year less than Amy.John Waldron, the attorney for Esterly’s wife, Stacey Esterly, told to ABC News that over several years Amy became like a “fifth daughter” to their family.Luu agreed, saying for Amy, Kevin Esterly was “dad” and his wife was “mom.”But Luu said she found the relationship strange and confronted the couple.“I ask him and I ask his wife, ‘Why does she call you mom and dad?’ and they say ‘It’s normal,’” Luu recalled.But the patriarchal relationship became inappropriate over “eight or nine months” when Stacey Esterly said she learned her husband was allegedly having sex with Amy, according to Waldron.“She tried to prevent Kevin on almost a daily basis from having contact with Amy,” Waldron said, adding that Stacey Esterly didn’t report him to authorities at first because she was concerned about fracturing her family.Waldron said that Stacey Esterly eventually started to feel more uncomfortable with the relationship.“It was reaching a breaking point, which is part of the reason why Kevin ultimately took off with Amy,” he said. “Because he knew that Stacey was going to take more drastic measures with the authorities.”Meanwhile, Luu is questioning how she could have trusted Esterly for so many years.“This guy is so bad,” she said. “I never thought he would act like that.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

The continuum theory of mixtures is used as the mathematical framework for a four-constituent model of a natural snowpack. The general conservation equations in point form are derived from appropriate integral balances and constitutive requirements are identified. In particular, constitutive postulates are made for the interaction terms due to phase change in the momentum and energy equations. The conservation equations are written in terms of partial variables whereas material constitutive laws are given in terms of intrinsic variables. Generalising Morland’s theory* enables these two types of variable to be related when mass transfer due to phase change is included. A reduced model is proposed which assumes linear hypo-thermoelastic response for the ice and linearly viscous fluid response for the water, water-vapour and air.

It also claims that the event prompts buyers who have already seen a property to rush in with a bid to secure it before a crowd of potential rival bidders descend.“In previous years, people who were just curious about the local market but not seriously considering buying have changed their minds after our National Open House Day,” says Simon Backhouse, Director of Strutt & Parker’s Canterbury branch (left).The company says 60% of its branches participated in the event last year, ten years after it first tried out the strategy at a single branch in Kent.Strutt & Parker describes it as having been an ‘immense success’ but not all of its vendors have embraced the idea; only a third of its sales properties were included during its 2018 event.This year it’s taking place on Saturday 11th May and is expected to see at least 1,000 open house viewings and offers worth in excess of £60 million roll in, the company claims.“A buyer can walk into a home on a viewing and take less than 30 seconds to decide if they like it. For those houses with instant kerb appeal, this is a fantastic opportunity to really show it off,” says Backhouse.open house viewings Simon Backhouse Strutt & Parker March 25, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

A spoof driving test posted on a websiteby a Christ Church student prompted the drivingStandards Agency (DSA) to threaten legal action for the unauthorised use of thecompany’s official logo. The threat was outlined in a letter sent last month tothird year physicist Andrew Steele, the student responsible for the ‘blog’. Theletter, which was received on 30 September, called Steele’s use of the DSA logoan infringement of the DSA’s rights contrary to the Trade Marks Act 1994, aswell as being an infringement of [their] copyright”. The letter went on to requestSteele to remove the DSA logo from the spoof theory test and for them to agree “notto make use of the DSA’s property rights in the future”. Steele said he was “a bitsurprised because the theory test has been online for two to three years.” Theletter requested that the logo be removed by 22 September, but was itself dated28 September. Steele promptly replied to the letter, concerned that it may havesent by an individual or group impersonating the DSA due to the mistakes withthe dates, the misspelling of their address and the lack of a reference code onthe letter.Within five working days he hadreceived a response assuring that the letter was in fact from the DSA, as wellas an apology for the mistake regarding the dates, stating that they had meantto set the deadline of 22 October. Following the response, Steele edited the DSAlogo, and continued to use the edited version. However, the commercial directorof DSA contacted Steele saying that he did not “find the logo acceptable given theuse of colour and style”, as the colours still matched those used by the DSA.The DSA appeared to be offended by the spoof test, aside from the fact thattheir logo was being used, saying, “Road safety is a matter taken veryseriously by the DSA and you are clearly treating this serious subject as alight hearted one.”Steele then changed the logo, an actionnoted by the DSA. However, the commercial director writing to Steele assertedthat the problem of the spoof theory test, posted online, put a “sarcastic slanton the theory test”, and that the DSA “does not approve of or endorse [Steele’s]‘Mock Theory Test’ in any way”. Steele said he “thought it was a bitridiculous that [the DSA was] wasting government time and resourceschasing up satirical student websites.”He went on to add that “it’s what you would expect from a headmaster at aboarding school rather than an official government organisation”.‘Blogs’ or weblogs are personal webspaces usually containing periodic journal-style entries which may be used topromote the views of individuals or political campaigns, media programmes and corporations.Many blogs enable visitors to leave public comments.ARCHIVE: 3rd week MT 2005
Decision soon about how far to go exempting churches from emergency restrictions By Network Indiana – March 31, 2021 0 189 Facebook Twitter (Photo supplied/Saint Pius X Catholic Church) Legislators are expected to decide this week how far to go in exempting churches from emergency restrictions.The House passed a bill last month banning any restrictions on churches. The Senate deleted that provision, and passed its own bill saying churches can’t face limits any tighter than those on essential businesses. That’s the standard spelled out in court rulings in other states. A House committee is discussing whether to keep that language or restore its original version.Conservative groups differ on whether emergency restrictions should apply to churches:The Senate passed a bill saying restrictions on houses of worship can’t go any further than the loosest restrictions on businesses. Indiana Family Institute executive director Ryan McCann says it’s important to put it in law:Advance America executive director Eric Miller argues the bill doesn’t go far enough. He contends mask and social distancing orders infringe the right to worship, and wants a ban on any restrictions. A House committee expects to vote later this week.
