Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD, lysergide) is known as one of the most powerful hallucinogenic drugs of abuse. LSD was explosively abused in U.S.A. in the latter half of the 1960s. In Japan, the amount of seizure of LSD is much smaller than that of methamphetamine. However, in recent years, it has been increasing markedly; 3,500 tablets of LSD were seized in 1996, while 53,043 tablets in 2000 (about 15-fold increase), arousing a serious concern about the phenomenon. LSD is a compound chemically modified from ergot alkaloid produced by a bacterium Claviceps purpurea.
Chapter 3 INTERMARKET ANALYSIS. Seizing Trading Opportunities in a Shrinking World. Over the past few decades, when the financial markets were less volatile and tended to trade independently of one another, single-market methods of analysis were the mainstay of technical analysis and rightfully so. However, at this juncture, a narrow characterization of the markets, with its focus (if not preoccupation) on the inward analysis of each individual market, is much too limited. Traders need to expand their perspective to take into consideration external factors that affect each market.

Many of us in the social sciences long to transfer knowledge across dis-
ciplinary boundaries in a way that is true to our discipline yet useful to
other disciplines. One way to satisfy this longing is to seize articles that
address similar issues from dif erent disciplines and piece them together
to forge new intellectual coherence that can push forward the frontiers
of knowledge. This seems to be the way in which new i elds of study take
root. While I applaud this style of scholarship and its development, this
book attempts to do something a little dif erent....

In the year 1844 electricity, last and mightiest of the servants of man, was seized and harnessed and made to
do practical work. A telegraph line was erected between Washington and Baltimore. [Footnote: See Invention
of the Telegraph.] In 1846 mathematics achieved perhaps the greatest triumph of abstract science. It pointed
out where in the heavens there should be a planet, never before known by man. Strong telescopes were
directed to the spot and the planet was discovered. [Footnote: See The Discovery of Neptune.
Displacing older people as heads of households
and depriving them of their autonomy in the name
of affection are cultural norms even in countries
where the family is the central institution and the
sense of filial obligation is strong (11). Such
infantilization and overprotection can leave the
older person isolated, depressed and demoralized,
and can be considered a form of abuse. In some
traditional societies, older widows are abandoned
and their property seized.

Such figures also suggest that international markets for counterfeit goods have an
effect more locally. This is supported by claims made by Trading Standards that in the
North West of England counterfeit goods cost legitimate businesses around £750
million and resulted in approximately 1000 job losses in 2003 (NCIS, 2005). The
Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) reported seizing counterfeit goods with a
street value of £9.
