(14) Through the searing summer heat, the Mexican immigrant to California’s Central Valley and his family endured a daily routine of collecting water in his pickup truck from an emergency communal tank, washing from buckets and struggling to keep their withering orchard alive while they waited for snow to return to the mountains and begin the cycle of replenishing the aquifer that provides water to almost all the homes in the region.
(15) Grey water is simply the water used in washing dishes, clothes and showering that is allowed to cool, then saved from going down the plug hole and redirected to the garden – either by bucket, or specially installed outlet pipes.

(19) Serum samples are overlayered with a sodium chloride density gradient in a preparative ultracentrifuge tube and thin layers are removed at the top of the tube after successive centrifugations at different speeds in a swinging bucket rotor.
(20) As the NHS England chief executive, Simon Stevens, commented : “No one should pretend just combining two financially leaky buckets will magically create a watertight funding solution.” But the preoccupation with structure and funding omits a key piece of the integration puzzle: culture.
(n.) Machines, in general, or collectively.
(n.) The working parts of a machine, engine, or instrument; as, the machinery of a watch.
(n.) The supernatural means by which the action of a poetic or fictitious work is carried on and brought to a catastrophe; in an extended sense, the contrivances by which the crises and conclusion of a fictitious narrative, in prose or verse, are effected.
(n.) The means and appliances by which anything is kept in action or a desired result is obtained; a complex system of parts adapted to a purpose.
(1) It is argued that this process drove the evolution of present 5' and 3' splice sites from a subset of proto-splice sites and also drove the evolution of a more efficient splicing machinery.
(2) The data suggest that proinsulin, normally processed in secretory granules and released via the regulated pathway, may also be processed, albeit less efficiently, by the constitutive pathway conversion machinery.
(3) These observations suggest that pertubation of surface immunoglobulin molecules on CH31 immature B cells causes down-regulation of their antigen-processing machinery.
(4) We provide direct experimental evidence supporting the facts that these additional mechanistic components do exist and that the liver glutamate dehydrogenase reaction is indeed driven by just such machinery.
(5) These surplus chromophores become esterified and are temporarily taken up by the pigment epithelium to be re-entered into the visual cycle as fast as they can be processed by the regenerative machinery of the rod outer segments.
(6) Its diplomatic machinery is a little bit rusty," said Zhu Feng, of Peking University's centre for international and strategic studies.
(7) But, as extended survival at 43 degrees Celsius depends absolutely on the ability of cells to continually synthesize HSPs, it appears that a prior heat shock as well as the recovery from protein synthesis inhibition elicits a change in the protein synthetic machinery which allows the translation of HSP mRNAs at what would otherwise be a nonpermissive temperature for protein synthesis.
(8) Furthermore, the evidence that anti-CD3 antibodies increase the efficacy of the cytotoxic machinery might support the use of these molecules in designing new immunotherapeutic approaches against tumor targets.
(9) The mnn9 mutation also increases the transit time for invertase secretion, meaning that this mutation could affect the processing machinery in the Golgi apparatus.
(10) This technology allows the use of RNA virus replication machinery to express heterologous sequences.
(11) Geometrical comparison of this model with an experimentally determined structure for chicken DHFR suggests that chromosomal and type II R-plasmid specified enzymes may have independently evolved similar catalytic machinery for substrate reduction.
(12) To investigate whether TGF-beta also influences the glycosaminoglycan (GAG) chain-synthesizing machinery, we also characterized GAGs derived from proteoglycans synthesized by TGF-beta-treated cells.
(13) The effects of dantrolene on the sarcoplasmic reticulum and contractile machinery were examined in skinned skeletal muscles of guinea pigs.
(14) Secretion, however, depends on neither an N-terminal signal sequence nor on SecA, which is part of the normal cellular export machinery for periplasmic and outer membrane proteins.
(15) The localization of these key components of the pre-mRNA splicing machinery to speckled nuclear regions suggests that these regions may be involved in pre-mRNA splicing.
(16) In circumstances in which energy conversion rate and supplies of reducing power exceed the capacity of the biosynthetic machinery, energy-dependent H2 production presumably represents a regulatory device that facilitates "energy-idling."
(17) Overexpression of these genes, which probably encode lipoproteins, could have deleterious effects on E. coli hosts, possibly as a result of impairing the protein export machinery.
(18) Major intra-abdominal arteriovenous fistulas usually present with a machinery bruit over a pulsatile mass, but may present more subtly with pain and otherwise unexplained hematuria.
