Raid is the brand name of a line of insecticide products produced by S. C. Johnson & Son, first launched in 1956.

Currently Raid Ant & Roach Killer contains pyrethroids, piperonyl butoxide, and permethrin; other products contain tetramethrin, cypermethrin and imiprothrin as active ingredients. Raid Flying Insect Killer, a spray, uses prallethrin and D- phenothrin.
("Research, Assistance, Intervention, Deterrence"), commonly abbreviated RAID (; French: ) is an elite law enforcement unit of the French National Police. RAID is headquartered in Bièvres, Essonne, approximately 20 km (12 miles) southwest of Paris.
Created in 1985, RAID is the National Police counterpart of the National Gendarmerie's GIGN. Both units share responsibility for the French territory.
Since 2009, RAID and the Paris Research and Intervention Brigade (BRI), a separate National Police unit reporting directly into the Paris Police Prefecture , have formed a task force called "National Police Intervention Force" or FIPN. When activated, the task force is headed by the RAID commander.
In early 2015, the seven regional units of the National Police, previously known as National Police Intervention Groups (GIPNs), were permanently integrated into RAID and redesignated "RAID branches" .

Raid, also known as depredation, is a military tactic or operational warfare mission which has a specific purpose and is not normally intended to capture and hold terrain, but instead finish with the raiding force quickly retreating to a previous defended position prior to enemy forces being able to respond in a co-ordinated manner or formulate a counter-attack. A raiding group may consist of combatants specially trained in this tactic, such as commandos, or as a special mission assigned to any general troops. Raids are often a standard tactic in irregular warfare, employed by warriors, guerrilla fighters, or other irregular military forces.
The purposes of a raid may include:
- to demoralize, confuse, or exhaust the enemy
- to ransack, pillage, or plunder
- to destroy specific goods or installations of military or economic value
- to free POWs
- to capture enemy soldiers for interrogation
- to kill or capture specific key persons
- to gather intelligence.
Raid were a Tennessee based straight edge hardcore band that formed after the break-up of the band One Way. Along with the Californian band Vegan Reich and the English band 'Statement', Raid helped pioneer the Vegan straight edge movement and the Hardline lifestyle and ideology.
Their lyrics strongly expressed of their stance against drugs, alcohol, abortion, sexism and racism, and for animal liberation and radical ecology. Their output started as fairly conventional hardcore punk, which gradually evolved to incorporate elements of heavy metal and they effectively became spokesmen for the Hardline movement.
In 1989, they self released a demo tape and this led to a seven-inch EP called Words of War a year later through Vegan Reich's own label, Hardline Records. The band split as they moved away from the straight edge lifestyle, but not before recording one last session. The recordings were released by Hardline Records as the posthumous Above The Law LP and CD in 1994. This was later re-released in 1995 by Victory Records as the Hands off The Animals CD.
A raid is a type of mission in a video game in which a number of people attempt to defeat another number of people at a player-vs-player or a number of NPCs in a player-vs-environment battlefield. The term raid itself stems from the military definition of a sudden attack and/or seizure of some objective. This type of objective is most common in MMORPGs, and usually but not necessarily occurs within an Instance dungeon. In RTS games like StarCraft, the term is used differently; see Raid (military).
Raiding originated in the class of text MUDs known as DikuMUD. DikuMUD heavily influenced the game EverQuest which brought the raiding concept into modern 3D MMORPGs. The largest and most popular game to currently feature raiding is World of Warcraft.
Raid – A sail and oar adventure This is a leisure pursuit combining sailing and rowing. It involves a fleet of small boats capable of being rowed and sailed, exploring a coastline or inland waterway over several days, often with some competitive element.
In describing raiding, the organiser of the 2010 & 2011 English Raids states; "The idea of making coastal voyages in company, in open boats powered by sail and oar, was given currency by the French group Albacore, led by Charles-Henri le Moing during the 1990s, starting in Portugal and Scotland... The word raid has slipped into English and lost its usual associations of pillage and destruction – to those who participate at least."
Raiding has become increasingly popular amongst small-boat sailors, and this has fostered the development of raid-worthy boats. An example of the type is American whaleboat "Molly" crewed by The Henley Whalers.
Raiding is not only an enjoyable outdoor activity, it has been noted to promote family participation.
