Goodman and consulting producer Jason Cahill, while Michael Zinberg served as the episode's director, it was Goodman's third contribution to Cahill's second. It was the only Fringe episode by Zinberg, a prolific television director who has directed over eighty other television series. Along with "The Equation", "Safe" resolved much of the storyline surrounding Mitchell Loeb, as it addressed how Loeb's team desired to use the equation; the episode featured guest stars James Frain as Salman Kohl, Jared Harris as David Robert Jones, Michael Cerveris as the Observer. During the first half of its first season, Fringe staff and critics noted that the series was still trying to define itself and its characters; the writers worked on balancing serialized storytelling with standalone plots and had to contend with continuous rewrites and expensive last-minute reshoots.

Safe (1995 film)
Safe is a 1995 British/American psychological horror film written and directed by Todd Haynes, starring Julianne Moore. The story is a character study of a suburban California housewife whose life deteriorates under the stress of "environmental illnesses" and seeks hope from "New Age" practitioners with whom she becomes involved. Safe was voted the best film of the 1990s in the 1999 Village Voice Film Poll. Set in an affluent neighborhood of the San Fernando Valley in 1987, the film recounts the life of a unremarkable homemaker, Carol White who develops multiple chemical sensitivity. MCS is a medically controversial diagnosis in which a person develops mild to severe non-specific symptoms and believes that these symptoms are triggered by chemicals found in everyday household and industrial products. Carol passes her days with activities such as gardening, taking clothes to the dry cleaners, attending aerobics classes, her marriage is stable but devoid of emotional intimacy, her son is a stepson from her husband's previous marriage.
Her friendships are polite but distant. As she goes about her routine, she begins to develop unpredictable and strange bodily reactions, such as persistent fatigue, uncontrollable coughing, asthma-like symptoms, nose bleeds and convulsions. Doctors are able to identify only one true allergy: milk, which she drinks in the movie without incident. Doctors are at a loss of how to help her cure her, she does not gain any insight into her condition. After seeing an ad at her community center, she resorts to moving to the New Age/religious retreat in the desert called Wrenwood, designed to help people suffering from MCS recover and is led by a man whose "relentless motivational talks amount to psychological fascism." The film had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 25, 1995. Sony Pictures Classics acquired distribution rights to the film and released the film in a limited release on June 23, 1995. Safe received positive reviews from critics. Rotten Tomatoes reports 85% approval based on 53 reviews, the film holds a score of 76/100 on Metacritic.
Janet Maslin, writing in The New York Times, lauds the first half of the film, but concludes that, as “brilliantly as it begins, Safe succumbs to its own modern malady, as the film maker insists on a chilly ambiguity that breeds more detachment than interest”…. “Mr. Haynes makes fools of … New Agers while embracing some of their views.” Another problem, according to Maslin, is that “the shadow of AIDS implicitly hangs over … decline, but it doesn't help bring Safe to a conclusion worthy of its inspired beginning”. The ending of the film is ambiguous, has created considerable debate among critics and audiences as to whether Carol has emancipated herself, or traded one form of suffocation for an constricting identity as a reclusive invalid. Julie Grossman argues in her article "The Trouble with Carol" that Haynes concludes the film as a challenge to traditional Hollywood film narratives of the heroine taking charge of her life, that Haynes sets Carol up as the victim both of a male-dominated society, of an debilitating self-help culture that encourages patients to take sole responsibility for their illness and recovery.
Carol's illness, although unidentified, has been read as an analogy for the AIDS crisis of the mid-1980s, as a uncomfortable and unspoken "threat" in 1980s Reaganist America. Safe received seven votes in the British Film Institute's 2012 Sight & Sound poll of the greatest films – with five votes from critics and two from directors – ranking it 323rd and 322nd, respectively, they Shoot Pictures, Don't They?, a website which gathers critics' polls, has found Safe to be the 499th most acclaimed movie of all time. The movie was critically acclaimed, giving Moore her first leading role in a feature film, gave Haynes a measure of mainstream critical recognition. 1996 Independent Spirit Awards - Nominated for Best Director, Best Feature, Best Female Lead, Best Screenplay 1995 Boston Society of Film Critics Awards - Best Cinematography - Alex Nepomniaschy 1995 Seattle International Film Festival - American Independent Award - Todd Haynes 1996 Rotterdam International Film Festival - FIPRESCI Prize Special Mention - Todd Haynes Safe on IMDb Safe at Rotten Tomatoes Safe at AllMovie Safe at Box Office Mojo
Safe (Phil Wickham song)
"Safe" is the first single by American Christian and gospel singer Phil Wickham from his third studio album Heaven & Earth, which features MercyMe’s frontman Bart Millard. The single has made it into the top 20 on Billboard’s Christian AC and Soft AC/Inspirational charts and reached #4 on the Billboard's Christian songs chart on January 3; the message never gets old. It speaks out to those, those that are going through tough things. It’s a reminder that the God who brought sight to the blind and brought the lame to their feet is the same God who holds you in his arms today. It's my sincere prayer. I wrote it after a moving conversation with a man who told me his story, it was a story of God’s faithfulness during a struggling time. How God can turn things that seem so grim into things. Think of all those that Jesus healed and saved while he was on earth from great tragedy and sickness and death, it gave people all the more reason to praise Him! I am so honored that Bart Millard, who has become a good friend and is the lead singer of MercyMe, is a guest vocalist on the song “Safe”!
This wasn’t planned, it just kind of happened and I’m thrilled with the result. In a way, Bart gave me my “start”, so to speak, when he believed enough in what the Lord was doing through my music to take me out on a MercyMe tour when I was just starting out. Now, three albums it was an amazing feeling to bring him into my sphere of things. I’m always amazed with how good that guy can sing! "Safe" has received positive review from most critics. Kevin Davis from Christian Music Review writes that Safe "serve to encourage and remind listeners that they are not alone as say,'You will be safe in His arms, You will be safe in His arms, the hands that hold the world are holding Your heart, this is the promise He made He will be with You always, when everything is falling apart you will be safe in His arms.' " "The first time I listened to Phil’s single Safe, I was amazed over how the message connected and appreciate its relevance to all, going on in the world these days," says WAY-FM Network Program Director, Tate Luck.
"The sound is fresh and Bart Millard’s participation is a great touch!" " Safe does live up to its name in terms of being a song that will tickle the fancies of Contemporary Christian radio programmers looking for something different to play. Don’t get the song wrong, though. -Gannsdeen.com The song has reached #4 on the Billboard's Christian songs chart on January 3, made it up to #31 and #32 Top 300 iTunes Christian & Gospel Song Downloads/Top 300 iTunes Inspirational Song Downloads the song entered top 10 spot on the USA Today Christian chart, #7 on the Top 10 Christian Music Hits Chart of Christian Music About on its debut week
A safe room or panic room is a fortified room, installed in a private residence or business to provide a safe shelter, or hiding place, for the inhabitants in the event of a break in, home invasion, terror attack, or other threat. Safe rooms contain communications equipment, so that law enforcement authorities can be contacted; the most basic safe room is a closet with the hollow-core door replaced with an exterior-grade solid-core door that has a deadbolt and longer hinge screws and strike-plate screws to resist battering. Sometimes, the ceiling is reinforced, or gated, to prevent easy access from the attic or from an overhead crawl space. More expensive safe rooms have walls and a door reinforced with sheets of steel, Kevlar, or bullet-resistant fiberglass; the hinges and strike plate are reinforced with long screws. Some safe rooms may have externally vented ventilation systems and a separate telephone connection, they might connect to an escape shaft. Safe rooms in the basement or on a concrete slab can be built with concrete walls, a building technique, not possible on the upper floors of wood-framed structures unless there is substantial structural reinforcement to the building.
The U. S. State Department uses steel grillwork much like a jail to seal off parts of a home used by U. S. Foreign Service members overseas. In some cities, the entire upstairs area is grilled off, as well as every window and door to the home. Other homes have steel doors to one or more bedrooms that can be bolted closed to provide time for security forces to arrive. For strong storms or tornadoes, a storm safe room must be built to withstand high winds and flying debris if the rest of the residence becomes damaged or destroyed. Specific concerns include: The safe room should be adequately anchored to the foundation to resist overturning and uplift; the walls and door of the shelter should withstand wind pressure and resist penetration by wind-borne objects or falling debris. The connections between all parts of the safe room should be strong enough to resist separation by wind. Sections of either interior or exterior residence walls which are used as walls of the safe room, should be separated from the structure of the residence so that damage to the residence will not cause damage to the safe room.
Safe rooms may contain communications equipment, such as a cellular telephone, land-line telephone or an amateur radio transceiver, so that law enforcement authorities can be contacted. There may be a monitor for external security cameras and an alarm system. In basic safe rooms, a peephole in the door may be used for a similar purpose. Safe rooms are stocked with basic emergency and survival items such as a flashlight, blankets, a first-aid kit, packaged food, self-defense tools, a gas mask, a simple portable toilet. High-end safe rooms may have a gun closet, a biodefense air-filtration system that removes biological and nuclear contaminants, a panic button that locks down the entire house. Safe rooms can be hidden behind many household features, such as mirrors, bookcases, sliding bookcases, fireplaces. Warships with CBRN protection have a central citadel, with a degree of armour protection as well as a filtered air system. Safe rooms on civilian ships, sometimes called "citadels", are being installed as a countermeasure against piracy.
When attacked, the crew can call for help. Because of the nature of ship construction, the safe room is constructed in a concealed location within a void within the ship, to resist efforts by the pirates to find the crew before help arrives. Safe rooms sometimes have facilities to allow the crew to remotely disable the ship's engines and electronic systems, making it impossible for the pirates to sail the ship to a location they control; the safe room is typically armoured against direct physical attack, to allow the crew to remain safe for a few hours if located by the pirates, to allow rescuing forces full scope for the use of armed force to re-take the ship without risk to the crew. The effect of the safe room is thus to deny the pirates access to the crew for hostage-taking, to remove the capability to move the ship to a location favourable for the pirates, to facilitate retaking the ship by armed force without risk to the crew; the retreat of the crew to a safe room could encourage the pirates to leave the ship of their own volition.
Safe rooms have been used as a defensive measure in ships threatened by piracy in Somalia. In 2010, 4,185 seafarers had been attacked and 1,090 taken hostage, but 342 were kept safe in a citadel.

In baseball, a baserunner is safe when he reaches a base without being put out by various ways. While a runner is touching a base, he is not in jeopardy of being put out, is thus "safe" from fielders' actions; the runner is in jeopardy once again, negating this safety, when he ceases touching the base, when forced on a force play, or when the runner commits interference. By the rules, a runner is safe. Umpires will signal that a runner is safe by extending their elbows to their sides and extending their arms to the side. For emphasis, an umpire may cross and extend his arms several times to indicate safe. Verbally, the umpire will simply say "safe". If a close play occurs that may have appeared to be a putout, the umpire will call a reason for the safe call, such as "he dropped the ball" or "he missed the tag". Calling safe is a subjective decision, better made using the sounds of the runner hitting the bag and the fielder catching the ball, rather than by sight. Tie goes to the runner
