It is generally 5-10% of the pot in each poker hand, up to a predetermined maximum amount, but not only can this percentage be anything, there are other non-percentage ways for a casino to take the rake, plus other means for a casino to earn revenue from players (e.g. serving meals). Poker is a player versus player game and the house does not wager against its players (unlike blackjack or roulette) so this fee is the principal mechanism to generate revenues.
Many stage floors, usually in theatres built for dance or variety, are higher at the back than at the front, to give the audience a better view. These stages are said to be "raked", and the "rake" is the angle of slope from back to front. In most modern theatres it is the audience seating that is raked, not the stage.
A stage that is slanted so that as an actor moves away from the audience, he gets higher. Few contemporary theaters have raked stages. It's more likely that the house (i.e. where the audience sits) will be raked.

Theatre stages traditionally sloped upwards away from the audience, however theaters constructed after the beginning of the 20th century feature a raked audience section. This change back to the method of construction seen in Greek and Roman theatrers, (flat stage and terraced audience) was effected due the difficulty encountered when one tries to walk across a sloped surface, which had resulted in unnatural movement patterns to avoid the apperiance of limping caused by the non-level surface.

A rake (Old English raca, cognate with Dutch raak, German Rechen, from a root meaning "to scrape together," "heap up") is an agricultural and horticultural implement consisting of a toothed bar fixed transversely to a handle, and used for the collection of leaves, cut hay and grass, etc., and, in gardening, for loosening the soil, light weeding and levelling, and generally for purposes performed in agriculture by the harrow.
(aka: "trap rake") a rake placed in or around sand-filled bunkers for the purpose of re-smoothing the surface after walking in, and playing a shot out of, the sand.

Rake was an art rock/noise rock/free jazz musical ensemble that came to being in Northern Virginia in 1990 in the shadow of the Nationâ€™s Capitol. Not to be confused with the post-punk and art damage bands associated with the Washington, DC underground music scene, Rake straddled the line dividing high art from low art and marched to their own beat along with fellow musical explorers Pelt and Wingtip Sloat throughout the 1990s.

This is a technique used in digital signal processing where the radio receiver is given uses several base-band correlators. The technique uses the fact that a signal will propagate via several paths to a receiver. The signals arriving via different paths will reach the receiver at different times because of the different path lengths. Using the Rake process all the components can be individually processed and then combined to provide improved performance.
Most race cars are slightly lower at the front than at the rear. This provides for a natural "ground effects" tunnel under the car, and can also be adjusted to change the weight distribution between the front and rear wings.
