The European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction has revealed that more than 15.5 million Europeans have used cocaine at least once in a lifetime. Official statistics have shown that cocaine has become the most commonly used stimulant drug in Europe since the past 10 years. Followed by cocaine, cannabis is officially known to have been used by more than 80.5 million Europeans at least once in their life - that means almost one in four 15-64 year-olds. However, cannabis is mainly used by young people. It is also essential to note that cannabis used to be the most popular highs of Europe. The European average lifetime and last year use of cannabis stands at 32.5% and 12.4% respectively. Australia, Canada and the US all recorded higher than average rates. Ahead of all, researchers have recorded 57 new legal highs in 2012 with the EU's early warning system reporting the appearance of more than one new psychoactive drug on the market every week! Besides, various reports have demonstrated that the rise of legal highs is being driven by an explosion in the number of online retailers selling the new drugs in Europe...

In this ground-breaking book, author Liz Atherton explains the difference between healthy relating versus unhealthy, toxic and abusive relating. Every relationship has its ups and downs, but toxic and abusive relationships have distinctive patterns and behaviours that are detrimental to everyone involved. Cycles of loving highs, stressful lows, promises of a better future and wanting to reduce your extreme stress can make breaking free from toxic or abusive relationships difficult, but knowing what to do when stress is reigning, and you feel numb, is challenging. Staying in an abusive relationship can be dangerous and leaving even more so! Relentless stress, fearful thoughts and experiences can keep you grid locked and you'll discover options and resources available to escape or deal with an abuser. Gain the knowledge and power you need to stop the cycle you are in, particularly when clear thinking evades you, learn the daunting legal system processes on how to set clear boundaries in State civil courts and the Family Court of Australia. From her own and many of her client's experience, author Liz Atherton will show you what you have to face in order to stay safe, make your escape, set clear boundaries, begin to feel free, happy and heal from your abuse.
Im Zentrum des Forschungsprozesses liegt eine auf begleitenden Konsum ausgerichtete, suchttherapeutische Sozialeinrichtung in München. Zum Einen beschäftigt sich das Buch mit der Frage nach der Beschaffenheit von Motivation und Zielen der Bewohner für einen Aufenthalt in einem solchen Haus. Zum Anderen werden Wirkfaktoren und Grenzen des akzeptierenden Konzeptes und des Interventionsmodells der "Neuen Autorität" in Bezug auf den praktischen Einrichtungsalltag erforscht. Zudem werden die möglichen Auswirkungen des Konsums von so genannten "neuen psychoaktiven Substanzen" ("Legal Highs"), welche in den letzten Jahren stark an Bedeutung gewonnen haben, auf das Suchthilfesystem näher beleuchtet. Hierfür wurden je vier Betreuer und Klienten der Einrichtung mittels Interviews befragt und die erhaltenen Daten nach der Grouded Theory ausgewertet.
Capoeira evolved as a Brazilian martial art developed initially by that country's African slaves. Marked by deft, deceptive movements played on the ground or completely inverted, the form started gaining worldwide popularity in the early 20th century, when this second volume of Gerard Taylor's wide-ranging history begins. The book opens with a study of the capoeira "Bamba,” Mestre Bimba, who became renowned as a fighting champion in Bahia and opened the first legal academy during the dictatorship of Getulio Vargas. Taylor investigates the dramatic development of the schism that resulted in the competing styles of Regional and Angola. Moving into contemporary capoeira, the author provides an overview of new trends, such as international encounters, long distance "mail-order mestres,” mass membership capoeira associations, cyber-capoeira, and grading systems. The book features the wisdom of a number of important mestres recounting their experiences teaching capoeira professionally around the world. In frank, inspiring interviews they talk about the highs and lows of the capoeira life, and how its lessons can enrich people's lives. Photographs, illustrations, and an extensive glossary of terms illuminate the complex history of this fighting art.

At the age of 73, New York Times best-selling author Sylvia Browne is ready to tell the whole story of her extraordinary life. In Psychic, we meet the woman behind the public figure: from the child receiving her first visits from the spirit world to the teenager doubting her own sanity; from the new mother living through staggering highs and lows to the burgeoning celebrity, and, ultimately, the successful, happily married woman she is today. Filled with never-before-told stories and otherworldly encounters, Psychic is a riveting account of how Sylvia Shoemaker, a traditional girl from Missouri, became world-famous psychic Sylvia Browne. Nothing is off-limits. Sylvia tells the little-known truths behind her three failed marriages, including physical abuse, bankruptcy, and legal troubles, and the financial and emotional damage they wreaked. She revisits her personal demons and describes her physical challenges, including her relatively recent discovery that she'd suddenly gone blind in one eye. And then there is the greatest surprise of all: Sylvia tells how, once she had reached her 70s, and believed her romantic life was over, the real Mr. Right finally - impossibly - showed up. While the press has freely, often bitterly, weighed in on Sylvia's most painful stories, she has remained quiet...until now. Unlike any other book Sylvia has written, Psychic reaches deep beneath the surface of her life, including professional and personal experiences that she is sharing publicly for the first time. With candor, warmth, and a great deal of humor, Sylvia Browne has written the singularly captivating tale of a life lived in two worlds, filled equally with harsh earthly realities and mesmerizing spiritual insights. 1.
