Mainly São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, but I couldn´t say any of the host cities are really safe. The general tip is "Dont wear/hide valuable items when not needed and ask the locals (hotel employer, for example) before going to some new place. The beach and more touristic areas of RJ are usually very shielded by the law enforcements and probably will be even more during the World Cup, so if you don't get lost in the wrong neighborhood you will not have problems there. Dont forget to visit Ipanema, Leblon, Copacabana, Lagoa, Lapa and Morro de Santa Teresa. In SP things are a little bit different as the urban area is huge and is almost impossible to shield all the touristic areas, so avoid using public transportation (It's awful anyways), go for rent-a-car or Taxi, and use paid parking (SP, is not touristic anyways, most are business tourism).

Battlestar Galactica cufflinks are the perfect addition to your workplace wardrobe Battlestar Galactica cufflinks are the perfect addition to your workplace wardrobe We all love cosplay — but sometimes circumstances require us to express admiration of our favorite fictional characters in more understated ways. (I don't care how casual your work's Casual Fridays are, chances are you're not getting away with wearing any of these at the office.) That's what's so great about these Battlestar Galactica cufflinks. Modeled after Lee Adama's Captain's insignia, they're a subtle sartorial nod that's just distinctive enough to attract the attention of fellow diehard BSG fans. (It's more fun when people pick up on the subtle nod, anyway; it's how you know they're truly kindred spirits).

This Evil-Looking Mountain Fortress Is Really a Magnificent Fire Station This Evil-Looking Mountain Fortress Is Really a Magnificent Fire Station SExpand The volunteer fire station in the tiny Austrian town of Margreid is carved straight into a 300-foot sheer rock face on the side of a mountain. Designed by Italian architects Bergmeister Worlf, the unusual headquarters is a perfect aesthetic match for its alpine setting. Aside from its striking appearance, the fire station is a marvel of engineering. As Fast Company reports:
Zombie-Proof Condos Sell Out In Kansas The silo was built to withstand a nuclear explosion and to this day is considered to be “one of the strongest structures built by man”. This structure used to be an Atlas “F” missile base. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built these missile bases in the 1960’s and there were only 72 of them built.

Faux Boombox Cabinet Won't Wake the Neighbors Faux Boombox Cabinet Won't Wake the Neighbors Dear Gizmodo, I love you but you continuously abuse the "DESIGN" tag. Many of the articles you post in this realm aren't really "design," but more "gimmicks." Of the top of my head I recall posts about: a table that looks like it's floating, a desk lamp that looks like it's upside-down, a table that looks like a melting ice sculpture, a ceiling fan that looks like an upside-down helicopter, a glass cookie tray that looks like a pre-packaged plastic insert, etc. These things have their place, but I'd love to see more real design stories on Gizmodo.

P40 Tigershark Warbird Ceiling Fan, Piloted by Wrong-Way Corrigan P40 Tigershark Warbird Ceiling Fan, Piloted by Wrong-Way Corrigan SExpand Who wouldn't want to have a P40 Tigershark Warbird airplane poking through the ceiling, also functioning as a ceiling fan? This $200 prop doesn't include the rest of that WWII hotshot flier, but making up for that is the fact that it only uses the energy of a 75-watt lightbulb. These fans aren't exactly brand-new tech, but they're cool in more ways than one, and it's just about getting hot enough to need one.
SExpand Some days you want your boss to be aware of all the great work you're doing. But other days you just want to slip beneath the radar, do what you gotta do, and get home. And we assume that's exacly what David Hsu's angled stealth desk is for. Inspired by the U.S. Air Force's retired F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighter—it's called the Desk 117 after all—the piece is as functional as it is lethally beautiful.

Amazingly Detailed and Animated Terminator Busts Will Strike Fear In Sarah Connors Everywhere SExpand Starting with a rare vinyl model of the T-800 that was released in limited numbers after Terminator 2 hit theaters, Japanese artists at T-Studios create these wonderfully detailed chrome terminator busts, complete with light-up eyes and animated features. It's the perfect reminder that mankind's days are numbered. The bust's head, neck, and eyes all move independently, and the artists have even ensured the motions are still a little jerky to match the movements of the endoskeleton seen in the original Terminator movie. All that's missing is an oddly out-of-place Austrian accent. Each bust is custom made to order, and as a result are presumably priced well above what the average toy collector is willing to pay.
