Youth Pedestrians Should Reflect on All Four Sides

first_imgKenai Peninsula Safe Kids Coalition Coordinator Jane Fellman detailed how parents can make their children more visible for drivers when walking. Fellman said anyone interested in getting more information on how to keep children walking to school or bus stops safe to contact her at the Central Peninsula Hospital at 714-4539 or jfellman@cpgh.org. She also said that although drivers must always be aware, it is important for both youth and adult pedestrians to remain vigilant as well. Fellman: “But the reality is that it’s on all four sides is what we say, the front, the back, the sides. If you put it on their pant legs so that you could even do a circle, you could see the movement of somebody walking, the same thing with their back and their arms. Key pulls are okay and I give those out but really you can only see those from the fronts and there is so much more danger out there not being able to see people from behind. A lot of the backpacks you buy today have reflective tape on them or a material that shines. I really encourage kids to get head lanterns.”center_img  Fellman: “Teaching children that that even though you have reflective gear on and you think people can see you, it’s still their responsibility to be watching and looking and paying attention, if they can see headlights or if they hear a car coming to use their ears as well and to be able to be able to get themselves into a safe area.”  FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Pedestrian safety is on everyone’s minds after an accident where a ten year-old girl walking was struck by a vehicle on Poppy Ridge this morning.last_img read more

INSIDE AFCON 2019: Nigeria Set Up Last 16 Tie With Cameroon

first_imgNigeria will confront Cameroon in one of the Round of 16 matches of the 32nd Africa Cup of Nations finals ongoing in Egypt, at the Alexandria Stadium where the Super Eagles played their group matches, on Saturday, 6th July. The match will kick off 5pm Nigeria time.This tantalizing fixture was accomplished on Tuesday evening after a 0-0 draw with Benin Republic, and Ghana’s 2-0 defeat of Guinea Bissau, condemned the Cup holders to second place in Group F, and a direct confrontation with the second –placed team in Group B, being Nigeria.Cameroon defeated Nigeria in the final of the Africa Cup of Nations in 1984, 1988 and 2000, but most painful for the Super Eagles was that agonizing penalty shoot-out loss in front of home fans at the National Stadium, Lagos on 13th February 2000.In 2004, Jay Jay Okocha spearheaded a sweet 2-1 defeat of then Cup holders (as they are now) Cameroon in a quarterfinal match at the Stade Mustapha Ben Jannet in Monastir, Tunisia and in the 2018 FIFA World Cup African qualifying series, the Super Eagles lashed the Lions 4-0 in Uyo and were forced to a 1-1 draw in Yaounde.Nigeria and Cameroon share eight African titles between them. While the Indomitable Lions have won five times (1984, 1988, 2000, 2002 and 2017), Nigeria were champions in 1980, 1994 and 2013.The match which kicks off at 5pm (Nigerian time), is expected to be a clash of titans, and the Super Eagles would be expected to pick themselves up from Sunday’s stunning defeat by Madagascar and battle the bitter rivals the way they should.RelatedINSIDE AFCON 2019: Nigeria Battle Tunisia for Third Place After Failing to Advance to FinalJuly 17, 2019In “AFCON”INSIDE AFCON 2019: Mikel Obi Misses Training As Eagles Step Up Preparation For Cameroon ShowdownJuly 3, 2019In “AFCON”INSIDE AFCON 2019: Adepoju Urges Super Eagles To Do ‘Much More’ Against Bafana Bafana (AUDIO)July 9, 2019In “AFCON”last_img read more
