This nursing bed has a fixed member (13A) forming a fixed bed surface of a bed portion (3) on which a care receiver (P) lies, a movable member (13B) which can be moved relative to the fixed member (13A) and forms a movable bed surface of the bed portion (3), and a movable member driving unit (5) for driving the movable member (13B). The fixed member (13A) has a plurality of slender parts each extending in the lateral direction or the longitudinal direction. The movable member (13B) has a mobile body (13B) which can be protruded upward relative to the fixed bed surface and also moved in at least one of the longitudinal direction and the lateral direction via an interval between the plurality of slender parts by the movable member driving unit (5). The posture of the care receiver lying on the bed can be changed into his/her optimal position without difficulty.

A breather device for a combustion engine includes a breather chamber in which oil mist in the combustion engine is introduced, a breather passage that guides the oil mist to the breather chamber from a crank chamber, and a blowby gas passage that guides, to an air intake passage, blowby gas having been subjected to gas-liquid separation in the breather chamber. A separator is accommodated in a blowby drawing pipe forming the blowby gas passage. The oil mist is made into droplets by the separator so that the liquid component is collected in the breather chamber.

A sliding surface located to one side in the axial direction relative to the axially central position of a rotary shaft 1 is supported by the slide surface of a supply shaft 2 in a slidable manner in the axial direction, the slide surface being the surface on which sliding occurs. The portion located to the other side in the axial direction side relative to the axially central position of the rotary shaft 1 is fixed to an output shaft 3. The sliding surface is positioned on the surface of a hard coating 51, and the hard coating 51 is positioned so as to cover a part of a substrate 50 made of a GFRP. The slide surface is positioned on the surface of a hard coating 56, and the hard coating 56 is positioned so as to cover a part of a substrate 55 made of a GFRP. A superconducting rotating machine is thereby provided in which heat insulation properties and the wear resistance of the sliding part can be improved despite the presence of a sliding part and the ability to absorb thermal contraction.
