WARSAW, Poland: Poland presented its plans Wednesday for four stadiums that will host matches during the 2012 European Championship, days after UEFA warned against major delays in preparations.

Sports Minister Miroslaw Drzewiecki said that work on stadiums in Poznan, Wroclaw and Gdansk is expected to finish by the end of 2010, while the national stadium in Warsaw should open by mid-2011.

Arenas must be built from the ground up in Warsaw, Wroclaw and Gdansk, while the stadium in Poznan is in undergoing extensive expansion work.

Last week, UEFA president Michel Platini warned Poland and co-host Ukraine to avoid “critical slippage” in infrastructure projects. The comments came amid recent speculation that UEFA could move the championship out of Poland and Ukraine due to organizational delays.

On Wednesday, Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk, who heads Poland’s organizing committee, assured that his government is working to address the shortfalls.

“I want us to be in as high a state of alert as possible, because the European Championship is a great challenge,” Tusk said. “The rebuke from UEFA is a help, not a hindrance.

“We all understand that time is moving quickly,” he added.

In April, UEFA awarded Poland and Ukraine the right to co-host European soccer’s showcase tournament in 2012, despite glaring gaps in sports and public infrastructure — including stadiums and roads — in both countries.

Plus, Nike isn’t just basketball and casual, but the brand extends into nearly every avenue imaginable. Footlocker CEO Ken Hicks pointed to strong performance from classic styles like Converse All Stars (Nike), Blazers (Nike) and adidas Sambas. But with running flat year over year, the classic styles with lower price points haven’t been the true drivers of higher average selling prices at the firm. Rather, Nike’s premium and often limited products are what’s driving the positive trends at the retailer.There is also a backup option for NFL Jerseys China all your phone book data to Microsoft’s My Phone service, in replica oakleys case your phone gets lost or stolen.

CORNISH: Meanwhile, I do want Cheap Oakleys to turn to an issue that has come up in the NFL, and that is with a Dallas Cowboys player, Greg Hardy. Over the weekend, the website Deadspin released photos of Greg Hardy’s former girlfriend with bruises, and he was accused last year of beating and strangling her. He was convicted, and then that Fake Oakleys case was thrown out after he appealed and his ex wouldn’t testify. Now, as far as the sport, he was suspended for four games, but he’s now playing again.

Varilla came to the White House and convinced Roosevelt that the best way to get around the Colombian Senate’s obstinacy was to start fucking with Colombia’s domestic politics in a big way. See, at the time, Panama was considering seceding from Colombia, and Roosevelt decided that in order to get what he wanted, he was going to have to become that country’s anti Lincoln and get some Panamanians civil warring. When Panama officially announced that it’s independence, Roosevelt sent the USS Nashville to block the Colombian navy from interfering. And thus an independent country was born.
