Photo: AFP The EU's chief Brexit negotiator said Thursday he is ready to speed up talks with Britain on its exit from the bloc as he voiced concern about progress and London's proposal for the border with Ireland.
"Given the passing time Nike Air Max 97 Scontate , and this passing time worries me, I am ready to accelerate, to intensify the rhythm of talks," Michel Barnier told a press conference.
Britain is on a countdown to leave the EU by the end of March 2019, following last year's shock referendum vote.
Barnier spoke as his negotiation team published a combative paper on the future of Northern Ireland and its border with the EU-member Republic of Ireland.
In its new position Nike VaporMax Flyknit Uomo Scontate , Brussels stipulated that the solution for the Irish border problem is strictly Britain's responsibility.
But Barnier said, "What I see in the UK's paper on Ireland and Northern Ireland worries me.
"The UK wants to use Ireland as a kind of test case for the future EU-UK customs relations. This will not happen," he said.
Barnier accused the UK, which wanted to "suspend the application of its laws, its customs union and single market at what would be a new external border for the EU."
London says the issue of how goods and people will move across the frontier cannot be separated from discussion about wider customs arrangements between Britain and the EU.
HELSINKI Nike VaporMax Flyknit Scontate , Aug. 11 (Xinhua) -- The Hugo Award for Best Novel 2017 was given to Nora K. Jemisin, an American speculative fiction writer for her work The Obelisk Gate. The award was presented at the 75th World Science Fiction Convention on Friday in Helsinki.
The awarded book was the second in the trilogy that started with The Fifth Season, which was New York Times Notable Book of 2015 and won Jemisin the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 2016.
The fantasy novel tells a story about the life on a planet where the inhabitants would undergo a "Fifth Season" of catastrophic climate change every a few centuries. The third book of the trilogy is due to be published later this month.
Jemisin was among a dozen winners of other categories of Hugo Awards on Friday. Ada Palmer was awarded the Best New Writer, Seanan McGuire's Every Heart a Doorway was the Best Novella, The Tomato Thief by Ursula Vernon was the Best Novelette Nike VaporMax Uomo Scontate , and Seasons of Glass and Iron by Amal El-Mohtar the Best Short Story.
The Expanse: "Leviathan Wakes", written by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, was awarded the Best Dramatic Presentation Short Form. It won over the best seller Game of Thrones, a series that had two books in the six-finalist shortlist.
A total of 3,319 voters made their selection from the final ballot Nike VaporMax Donne Scontate , the third-highest number in the history of the award.
First presented in 1953, the Hugo Award is considered the highest honor for sci-fi works along with the Nebula Awards. It has been confirmed by the Guinness Book of Records to be the oldest sci-fi award in the world.
NAIROBI, Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- Kenyans are leaving the capital Nairobi in droves for their rural areas which they consider safer ahead of the Aug. 8 elections.
The exodus has left Nairobi a ghost city some five days to the polls, with hundreds of residents together with their families flocking major bus stations to travel upcountry.
Majority of those leaving are natives of western Kenya, eastern and the Coast Nike VaporMax Scontate , areas that mainly support Opposition leader Raila Odinga.
The exit is unprecedented despite assurances from political leaders, including Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta that elections would be peaceful and security has been beefed up to protect every person and their property.
"I have sent my children and wife today morning upcountry where I believe they would be safer. My wife chose not to register as a voter, so I did not see the need for her to stay in Nairobi yet she will not vote," Cosmas Ambulwa, who comes from Kakamega in western Kenya Nike VaporMax Off White Scontate , said on Wednesday.
Ambulwa, who reside in Embakasi on the east of Nairobi, will vote in the region but noted he may also travel upcountry soon after.
"The 2007 election taught people many lessons, that you cannot trust anyone including your neighbor when it comes to elections and presidential poll outcome. People were turning against each other in a fashion never seen before. It is this fear that is making us leave Nairobi," he said.
At Machakos terminus Nike Vapormax CS Scontate , the main upcountry bus park in Nairobi, hundreds of people lined up with their luggage to board the few vehicles available on Wednesday.
"I will only be settled and feel safe when I reach home in Ugunja. My heart is at home, not in Nairobi. We will come back to Nairobi after elections," said a traveler.
And as expected, the fare has more than doubled with those travelling to Kisii Nike VaporMax Laceless Scontate , Kakamega, Kisumu and Busia paying between 16 U.S. dollars and 25 dollars for the four to eight hours journey.
However, in a strategy dubbed "adopt-a-bus station", some bus operators at the popular terminus grounded their services to block city residents from fleeing the city to their ancestral homes.
Others were turning away travelers who were registered voters in Nairobi, asking them to vote first before leaving Nairobi.
"From July 26 to Aug. 7 Nike VaporMax 97 Uomo Scontate , kindly show us your identity and voters cards before you book a ticket. This time round we will not allow you to leave the city if you vote here," a notice at one of the bus companies read.
At the Easy Coach offices in the central business district, an attendant informed this writer that their buses were fully booked until Aug. 8, the voting day.
"Try booking after the election because currently there is no space.
