Crime Index is an estimation of overall level of crime in a given city or a country. Crime Levels up to 50 are reasonable, and crime index levels more than 100 are too high.
Safety index is, on the other way, quite opposite of crime index. If the city has a high safety index, it is considered very safe.


Sao Paulo, Brazil --> crime index: 66.31 safety index:33.69
Dubai, United Arab Emirates --> crime index: 19.36 safety index: 80.64
Izmir, Turkey --> crime index:25.91 safety index: 74.09

These crime rate statistics can be seen as both irrelevant and opportunistic. They are irrelevant in the sense that security measures are increased multiple fold during world class events as the Olympics, the Fifa World Cup and of course, the World Expo. This can be evident no more so than in South Africa which is statistically one of the most violent and crime ridden countries on the planet. Yet it played host to 2010 Fifa World Cup with little reports of any criminal activities towards event attendees.

It is also opportunistic in the sense that a country is presented with a chance to vastly overhaul the sociological nature of its communities (often with economic investment from the investment of the event itself) so as to weed out local crime and corruption.

Izmir Selects Zaha Hadid as World Expo 2020 Architect

The 8,500 year old Turkish city of Izmir has announced Zaha Hadid as the architect for its World Expo 2020 bid. As home of the Asklepion, one of the world’s oldest hospitals whose history has played a major role in the evolution of healthcare, Izmir hopes claim the title as host of the New Routes to a Better World / Health for All themed fair over its competitors – São Paulo (Brazil), Yekaterinburg (Russia), Ayutthaya (Thailand) and Dubai (UAE).


If selected, Zaha Hadid will construct one of the largest urban recreation areas in Europe on a 276-hectare site in an Inciralti region lagoon. The environmentally and health conscious design will appear as if it is floating on top of the water with two large pedestrian ramps stretching out to either side welcoming visitors.

Once the fair concludes, the facility will be opened to the residents of Izmir as a public park.

The winning city is expected to be announced by Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) General Assembly in November.

Canada Backs Dubai’s Expo 2020 Bid

Canada is the latest addition to Dubai’s growing list of supporters for its Expo bid.

Canada announced its decision on Tuesday to support Dubai in its bid to host the Expo 2020.

Dubai will be the first city in the Middle East to host a World Expo if it wins the bid.

“Canada’s support for Dubai reflects our commitment to the dynamism, hope and future of emerging economies in the region and beyond,” said John Baird, Canada’s foreign affairs minister in a statement.

“Dubai is best placed to bring together the most diverse group of peoples from around the world, to share ideas, aspirations, and concrete solutions for the future.”

Ed Fast, Canada’s minister of international trade, said that Canadian businesses are eager to strengthen their trade ties with the local market.

As a Canadian, I find this endorsement rather embarrassing. The international community should know that the decisions of the upper echelons of government do not necessarily reflect the interests nor opinions of the masses - certainly not my own.
