Top 10 Safest Countries In The World To Settle In 2014

As natural disasters, terrorism, robberies and massacres made our planet a hell, everyone are in the urge to settle down in one of the safest places. But unfortunately when it comes to preparing a list of top 10 safest countries in the world, it becomes extremely hard to find such countries that satisfy all the criteria an individual has in mind.

So now, how would you picture a safest country? Is that the one which must have

Low crime rate?
No natural disaster?
Low corruption?
Immunity to economical crisis?
Or is it fast solving cases?

All the above factors are something you would certainly expect from a safe place you wish to settle. But the reality is, not all these factors make it. Out of the entire mentioned factors, crime seems to be making any place unsafe to live. Crime is one of the major reasons for a person to develop anxiety, post-traumatic stress, physical pain, loss of property and so on. After researching a while and keeping all the factors in mind, we the team of lifestyle9 have framed the list of “top 10 safest countries in the world”. We have considered “crime rate” as our prime factor.

Although governments around the world continue to strict their laws towards crime, it is still increasing massively on a daily basis. Often we see it with our own eyes or at least hear it on television news and websites. While high prevalent crimes make some places completely unsafe to live, strict laws, culture and few good qualities continue to make few countries as a perfect place to live, raise kids and happily retire. These countries have zero or at least low crime rate. Yeah, we have exceptions in everything. That’s the universal law.

Top 10 Safest Countries In The World


We have listed the safest countries based on statistical analysis report from “Federal Bureau of Investigations “. Now with no further introduction let’s move on to see the safest places around the world. Pack your bags and start the journey.

10. Singapore
9. Bahrain

2. Taiwan
Taiwan is one of the best places to live in terms of less exposure to violent crimes and robbery. People are more friendly and tender hearted, so there is no need to worry about violent crimes and robbery. Generally people of Taiwan are more honest.

It is the country where you can find people who help you before you approach. Many tourists reviewed that they never felt danger in Taiwan.

Women feel perfectly safe and not nerve-racking about what could occur particularly going out at late night. In this stable country, every citizen feels very safe.

1. Japan – The Safest Country In The World
Japan is the nation that occupies the first place in the list of safest countries in the world. Major crimes occur infrequently.

Culture becomes one of the main reason that attribute such an honor to the country. Japanese never involve in activities that brings shame to their country, hence desist from disorderly conduct. The firm gun control and wealthy Japanese economy also attributes the feeling of safety among the people.

2010 GPI (Global Peace Index) framed by IEP (Institute for Economics and Peace) ranked Japan as the 3rd peaceful country in the world. With the homicides and violent crimes are rare, terrorism is highly unlikely in Japan. Possession of firearms is strictly prohibited by stringent laws.

Taiwan coffee taster wins international competition

Taiwan coffee expert Liu Pang-yu claimed top honors at the World Cup Tasters Championship May 18 in Melbourne, Australia.

Liu’s exceptional accuracy, skill and speed in distinguishing taste differences in specialty coffee saw him trump U.S. competitor Amanda Juris in the final, according to Taiwan Coffee Association.

The assessment process involved eight coffee cupping sessions. Each session comprised three cups, with two containing identical coffee. Competitors had to identify the odd cup out as quickly as possible.

Liu evaluated six sessions correctly in 3 minutes and 48 seconds, while Juris finished with five for 3 minutes and 51 seconds.

TCA Chairwoman Wu Yi-ling described Liu’s performance at the championship, which is part of the annual 2014 Melbourne International Coffee Expo, as a special one.

Taiwan team makes leap in laser data transmission

A Taiwan research team led by professor Lu Hai-han of National Taipei University of Technology’s Department of Electro-Optical Engineering has scored a double breakthrough in the speed and distance of red laser-based data transmission, the ROC Ministry of Science and Technology said April 16.

Lu’s system transmits data at 10 gigabits per second over a distance of up to 17.5 meters, meaning that a 90-minute movie can be downloaded in under half a second.

An important feature of light-based communication systems is that they can be used in places such as hospital operating theaters or airplane cockpits to reduce or prevent electromagnetic interference.

The team is already working hand in hand with local manufacturers to roll out a commercial version of the system, with a production prototype slated to be ready by June and full-scale manufacture sometime next year.

The breakthroughs are a great success for the MOST-funded Fiber Optics CATV and Optical Communications Industry and Academic Alliance, under which technology transfer for this project in recent years has amounted to NT$3.2 million (US$106,000).

Previous attempts to develop similar systems based on light-emitting diode, or LED, light sources reached an upper limit of 1 Gbps and about 5 meters.

In the future, the team aims to increase the rate of reliable data transmission by the system to 400 Gbps, deemed the next major breakthrough in the development of visible-light communication technology to facilitate cloud server data transmission.

Lu’s team has been working for several years in this field, with six papers published in journals Optics Express and Optics Letters in the past three years, including one article honored by the former as top download. The work has also been covered by U.K.-based science journal New Scientist.

Lu was elected a fellow of the International Society for Optics and Photonics this year for his achievements in fiber-optic communications.
