Most Dangerous Cities In World Of 2013

Almost every city in world faces crime of some form or another. Especially, in poorest of neighborhoods is where crime seems to flourish. Crime seems to feed on the needy and helpless. In fact, greed can be another attribute where lack of resources and frustration with economic hardships can lead to crime and even family pressures. As the divide between the rich and poor increases so does the greed and jealousy. It seems lack of understanding or care for another is almost left behind for individuality. Perhaps, this is the dark corridor of capitalism where social norms are broken down where every one is thinking of themselves as an individual and competing for resources. Furthermore, as corruption within the public services and government increases it also adds to the reduction of safety and security in such cities. Thus, fueling uncertainty and lawlessness in these cities. Often times it is the civilians that are left paying the price for the failing governments in tackling crime effectively.

The following cities of the world have been rated as one of the most dangerous for crime fueled by drug trade, ruthless gang violence, poverty, and corruption:
  1. San Pedro Sula (Honduras)
  2. Maceio (Brazil)
  3. Ciudad Juarez (Mexico)
  4. Acapulco (Mexico)
  5. Distrito Central (Honduras)
  6. Caracas (Venezuela)
  7. Chihuahua (Mexico)
  8. Belem (Brazil)

New Girl

So, they finally kiss on New Girl. It was a pretty steamy kiss that was well received. Although, the preamble leading up to it was rather meandering in quite a few exploratory directions. At times the show can be quite funny but quite a few times it was cheesy at best. The awful truth now lies in the way they handle each other after the kiss which will possibly make for another turning point. The show does seem to challenge their acting careers. Beyond the show neither of the actors seem to have any varied scope to their past successes in acting or lack thereof. I would have liked to have seen a bond developing into a relationship similar to 'Friends' but it remains to be seen as to how they progress on through the episodes. The show does try to display some similarities to 'Friends' but in a very college level demographic. Why do drama shows always seem to bounce actors around like every one is having sex with everyone else through the episodes? Is this the reality of culture we live in or perhaps the writers find interesting narratives in the different situations?

Touch Series

This show on fox explores the perplexing and mysterious supernatural world in which a savant boy and his father embark on a journey of self-discovery. Perhaps, with a twist of emotions, drama, and events that transpire within each episode draws an extra bit of connection between the father and the son. The father is entangled between the non-verbal communication of his son and the interpretation that drives him into new experiences. A life of communication led in form of numbers and the natural ratios of interconnected lives proves to provide clues into the supernatural and the lives of the many similarly unique individuals. Kiefer Sutherland plays the immense role of the father. Over each episode we are able to see an unravelling of stories and a parallel characterizations of relationships as well as the mysteries that lie within. Touch is a very one of a kind drama series which caters to audiences that are enchanted by the supernatural and yet are intrigued by the quality of drama that is brought on through the many unravelling adventures.
