(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.) A contrivance attached to some elevated object for the purpose of showing which way the wind blows; a weathercock. It is usually a plate or strip of metal, or slip of wood, often cut into some fanciful form, and placed upon a perpendicular axis around which it moves freely.
(n.) Any flat, extended surface attached to an axis and moved by the wind; as, the vane of a windmill; hence, a similar fixture of any form moved in or by water, air, or other fluid; as, the vane of a screw propeller, a fan blower, an anemometer, etc.
(n.) The rhachis and web of a feather taken together.
(n.) One of the sights of a compass, quadrant, etc.
(1) One significant concern involves the rotary vane aspirators used to provide the suction required for the procedure.
(2) Indicators for use of variable-width multi-vane electron arc collimators include the following: (1) Mechanical constraints of the therapy equipment may limit the placement of isocenter to an inadequate depth which causes large variation in the SSD around the arc; (2) Out of the central plane, the shape of the chest wall may change dramatically across the limits of the arc, creating large variations in the dose distribution; (3) Clinical definition of the treatment surface to include surgical scars or other at-risk volume may create an irregularly shaped treatment surface, thereby changing the fraction of the arc included in the treatment surface from one plane to the next.
(3) The appendages consist of a delicate bilateral vane 2 mum wide on either side of the axis, composed of extremely fine overlapping or interwoven fibrils.

(12) Rabbit aortic strips were arranged in a Vane's cascade and superfused with Krebs buffer which contained phenylephrine hydrochloride (100 nM) and indomethacin (5 microM).
(13) The key to the question is to design a three-dimensional impeller with twisted vanes, compacted by an axial helical spiral and a radial logarithmic spiral so as to reduce the turbulent shear in the pump as the impeller changes its rotations per minute periodically to generate a physiologic pulsatile flow.
