Feminist Views and Author Connections in The Bean Trees
Feminist Views and Author Connections in The Bean Trees
Barbara Kingsolver, author of The Bean Trees, emphasizes her societal views throughout the novel
and tells the story in the first person narrative of Taylor Greer, a practical but spirited girl trying to
escape her simple and somewhat boring life to a more exciting one. Taylor's character reflects
Kingsolver in the way that they both focus on creating a more just society in which women are
treated as equals and have the same rights as men. They both share a pride of being female and
attempt to better the lifestyles of other women in their societies. Barbara Kingsolver writes novels
which focus on social justice and she often writes about situations that are familiar, basing much of
her writing on places or experiences that are personal to her. Kingsolver's early life experiences in
Arizona influence the characters, such as Taylor, who are developed in The Bean Trees and she
connects these life experiences to the characters to express her feminist views and inform the reader
of her concerns on this topic and demonstrates ways through her literature in which people can help
solve the societal problems that women face.
Kingsolver uses her literature to express her feelings through her characters, specifically Taylor
Greer, who resembles Kingsolver at a young age. Both Kingsolver and Taylor have pride in being
women and they want to ensure that women have the same rights as men do. They share these
similar social views

Personal Narrative-Painted Path
Hidden under the mass of the dark green foliage was the opening to a small sandy path, scuffed by
the shoes and sandals that have pounded over it for the past few years. Teenagers of all ages would
gather along the weathered path, adventuring through the undergrowth by passing through the
woody terrain. The serenade of birds, along with the crackling of dried leaves and broken branches,
was drowned out by the excited clamor of teenagers passing by. Although the well worn path was
covered by huge oak trees that towered like skyscrapers, reaching up into the clear blue skies
scattered with wisps of clouds, hints of sunlight broke free from the thick pile of leaves, illuminating
the end of the pathway. At the end of the path lay a rocky wall, ... Show more content on

My father and mother always used to tell me about how beautiful I was, about how handsome and
strong I was. Although I loved to hear their stories, I've seen the birth certificates and I knew the
truth. I knew that I was born at 3 pounds, much lower than the average 7.5 pounds that newborn
babies usually weigh. I knew that I was unusually quiet, that I had trouble breathing, and that there
was something wrong with me. My parents, although they always tried to do the best for me, were
horrible liars; I am different, and I've learn to embrace it. When I was around 3 years old, my
parents noticed something peculiar about me. At first sight, I seemed normal; mahogany locks
littered all over my head, clear blue eyes and a short build. Other kids my age, however, would be
forming sentences and learning new words, while I would always stay silent. For the next two years,
I had difficulty forming sentences, making me intellectually inferior to the other kids in my grade. A
trip to the doctor's office explained this, as I was diagnosed with Neurogenic Stuttering, a disease
that prevented me from speaking normally. In fact, I vividly remember the first day of kindergarten,

Importance Of B Tree
B–TREES
B–tree is a tree data structure that keeps data sorted and allows searches, insertions, and deletions in
logarithmic amortized time. The main idea of using B–Trees is to reduce the number of disk
accesses.
It is optimized for systems that read and write large blocks of data
B– trees are:
Balanced – It is a self–balancing data structure, which means that performance can be guaranteed
when B–Trees are utilized. Broad –B–Trees are broad and expand horizontally instead of vertically.
The height of B–Trees is kept low by putting maximum possible keys in a B–Tree node. Since h is

A Note On Detection Algorithm
2.1 PAGE CHANGE DETECTION ALGORITHM
2.1.1 Introduction: About 60% of the content on the web is dynamic. It is quiet possible that after
downloading a particular web page, the local copy of the page residing in the repository of the web
pages becomes obsolete compared to the copy on the web. Therefore a need arises to update the
database of web pages. Once a decision has been taken to update the pages, it should be ensured that
minimal resources are used in the process. Updating only those elements of the database, which
have actually undergone a change, can do this. Importance of web pages to be downloaded has been
discussed in the above section. It also checks whether the page is already there in the database or not
and lowers its priority value if it is referred rather frequently. In this section, we discuss some
algorithms to derive certain parameters, which can help in deriving the fact whether the page has
changed, or not. These parameters will be calculated at the time of page parsing. When the client
again counters the same URL, it just calculates the code by parsing the page without downloading
the page and compares it to the current parameters. If changes in parameters are detected, it is
concluded that the page has changed and needs to be downloaded again. Otherwise the URL is
discarded immediately without further processing. The following changes are of importance when
considering changes in a web page:
Change in page structure.

On a talk show, Mattie discusses the controversy topic of deportation of immigrants. She tells a
story about pair of immigrants who were discovered deadkilled after deportation. "Then the TV
showed both Mattie and the interview man talking without sound, and another man's voice told us
that the immigration and naturalization service had returned to illegal aliens, a woman and her son,
to her native El Salvador last week, and that Mattie claimed that had been taken into custody when
they stepped off the plane in san Salvador and later were found dead in a ditch" (Kingsolver 105–
106). This shows how America doesn't care about what happens to illegal immigrants after they've
been deported. This is another example of how immigrants suffer due to the ignorance of
Americans. Lou Ann has invited several people, including Estevan to a dinner party. During the
party, Estevan tells a 'Wild Indian Story', "If you go visit hell... people sit, like us. Only they are
dying of starvation...you can go visit heaven...you see a room like the first one... but these people are
all happy and fat" (Kingsolver 107–108). The story is supposed to be a metaphor to represent how
immigrants suffer in the same system as Whites who benefit in the system. Due to this, a lot of
privileged Americans do not see how the immigrants are suffering. Taylor was walking through a
room that used to hold a family on immigrants.

The Bean Trees Literary Analysis
In the famous poem The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus, America is deemed a land of "world
wide welcome" for those who seek a new place to call home. The Statue of Liberty is established
early on in the piece as a symbol of freedom and protection, a statue symbolic of the spirit of
America. In the piece, Lazarus refers to immigrants as the "poor, huddled masses" to whom the
United States offers a pair of open "golden doors." However, many immigrants today feel far
removed from the land of freedom referenced in The New Colossus. The promise of a blue sky with
endless possibilities is far from reality for the Americans that the poem calls the huddled masses. It
is clear that America's promise of freedom and opportunity, characterized by the ... Show more

The unaccepting nature of US citizens is one flaw in the idea of America's wide open golden doors.
The blame and stereotypes added to an immigrant's burden prevents them from ever feeling
welcome and eliminating the gap between immigrants and Americans born in the US. In a poem
written about the calling of Japanese–Americans to internment camps during WWII, author Dwight
Okita writes from the perspective of a young girl who sees herself as an American but is surrounded
by those who cast her out. She does everything to prove that she belongs and justifies that by
convincing the audience of her American qualities. "If it helps any, I will tell you I have always felt
funny using chopsticks and my favorite food is hot dogs. My best friend is a white girl named
Denise." Okita's use of this 14 year old girl adds power behind his words because the perspective of
a child can humble a reader and bring them to a point of deeper understanding. In the poem, the girl
is so young and understands nothing about what lies ahead, but she knows well enough to present
herself as an American, as one who truly belongs. The pressure on immigrants to belong in the
United states is imminent in this piece, and the fact that the young girl has picked up on this
expectation is almost disturbing. The stigma around those who are different is also included in

Advantages And Disadvantages Of Birch
BIRCH (balanced iterative reducing and clustering using hierarchies) is an unsupervised data
mining algorithm used to achieve hierarchical clustering over particularly huge data–sets. An
advantage of Birch is its capacity to incrementally and dynamically cluster incoming, multi–
dimensional metric data points in an effort to generate the best quality clustering for a given set of
resources (memory and time constraints). In most cases, Birch only requires a single scan of the
database. In addition, Birch is accepted as the, "first clustering algorithm proposed in the database
area to handle 'noise' (data points that are not part of the underlying pattern) efficiently.
Clustering Feature and CF Tree
The idea of Clustering Feature and CF tree are at the core of BIRCH'S incremental clustering. A
Clustering Feature is a triple summarizing the information that we maintain about a cluster.
Definition: Known N d–dimensions data points in a cluster :{Xi} where i=1, 2,..., N, the Clustering
Feature (CF) vector of cluster is defined as a triple:CF=(N,LS,SS), where N is the number of data
points in the cluster, LS is the linear sum of the N data points,i.e. N,Xi, and SS is the square sum of
the N data points i.e. submission of points n up to sum numbers Xi,.

nonleaf entry into the parent node, to illustrate the newly created leaf. If the parent has space for this

Introduction
We know that light is an important part of both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. In a forest system
both the canopy and the understory absorb light. The type of forest and leaf cover present
determines the amount of light that reaches the understory. This can be measured using the LAI
(Leaf Area Index), which is the amount of leaves per unit ground area. Light quantity in forests is
affected by several factors such as tree species, age, and density.
Looking at the amount of light that can penetrate to the understory also shows how much moisture
can reach that level. The amount of light and moisture that reaches the forest floor determines how
much biomass will be present in this layer. The goal of

Essay on Figurative Language in A Work of Artifice
Figurative Language in A Work of Artifice by Marge Piercy
"A clever trick, crafty device, or stratagem" is how Webster's Encyclopedia of Unabridged
Dictionary of the English Language defines Artifice. Marge Piercy definitely used "crafty"
techniques in writing "A Work of Artifice." In this poem, Piercy reflects on the growth of a bonsai
tree, considering the molded existence of what it is to what it could have naturally been. With deeper
analysis of this poem, the correlation between a bonsai tree and the shaped role of women within
society becomes evident. The poet introduces one specific metaphor in the beginning, comparing the
growth of a bonsai tree to the development of women. This single metaphor is supported throughout

"Every day as he whittles back the branches." This line from Piercy's poem produces a vivid and
detailed picture in the imagination of its readers. Readers visualize an incredibly precise little
gardener, as he diligently prunes the bonsai tree. Another of Piercy's lines' is, "could have grown
eighty feet tall on the side of a mountain till split by lightning." Again the reader is provided with
detailed illustrations and sounds that correlate with the picture. In this line, for instance, a
magnificent tree high above the skyline, destroyed both by a visual bolt of lightening and a booming
crack of thunder can be seen. Examples of imagery are abundant throughout Piercy's entire poem.
As readers look at the poem externally, the imagery is directly related to a vision of the bonsai tree.
With further internal analysis, it becomes evident that there is slight ambiguity within these lines,
lending themselves to have connotative meanings. In such a way, the sense–provoking images the
writer includes relate not only to describing a bonsai tree, but also to explaining the role of women
within society.
Specifically, the double meanings of the imagery can be deciphered through examination of the
writer's use of metaphors. Each of the descriptions about the bonsai tree can be applied to women. In

Descriptive Essay
You awaken to the sound of waves upon a shore, and with your mouth full of sand. Coughing, you
blink a few times to adjust your eyes to your bright, new surroundings. You see a sparkling beach
edging a gentle, clear sea, and farther in, a thick forest. Glancing down the shore, the sand continues
endlessly in a way that makes it hard to tell whether this is an island or the mainland. There is no
boat in sight, and so you decide to head into the forest to find some sort of civilization. As soon as
you step under the canopy of the trees, the temperature seems to drop by about ten degrees. You
walk farther in with no clear direction in mind. Turning around, you find that you can no longer see
the beach, and realize that maybe walking in without a plan was not such a good idea. At this point,

Trees and plants represent life in the novel which ties into the overarching theme of the
dehumanization that comes from slavery. Many of the characters in Beloved have been subjected to
awful events causing them to feel as if they were worse than animals. Because of this, many
characters look to the beauty of nature and trees in particular, to help them heal from their time in
slavery. For example, Baby Suggs decided to preach in a place called The Clearing, which is
surrounded by tall trees. "In the Clearing, Sethe found Baby's old preaching rock and remembered
the smell of leaves simmering in the sun, thunderous feet and the shouts that ripped pods off the
limbs of chestnuts. With Baby Suggs' heart in charge, the people let go." (Morrison 94) Another
example of trees bringing healing to the characters in the novel is the arrival of Beloved. "A fully
dressed woman walked out of the water. She barely gained the dry bank of the stream before she sat
down and leaned against a mulberry tree."(Morrison 60) This tree represents a chance at a new life
for Beloved and also offers Sethe a chance to heal. Ever since killing her child, Sethe has been

How Does Frost Use Figurative Language In Birches
The poem, "Birches" written by Robert Frost, depicts author's personal desire to escape the
normality of life through the mirage of climbing a birch tree. With distinctive use of diction,
imagery, and figurative language, Frost manages to indirectly understand his way of perceiving life.
His view of the normality and repetition that exists everyday is hidden within words written.
When seeing Birch trees, bent by the cumbersome snow of the long winter, Frost likes to imagine a
boy's "been swinging them" (Frost, 3). This is a portrayal of his desire to escape the mundane
characteristics of everyday life, and enjoy himself by imagining the boy "riding them down over and
over again" (29). Life can be laborious and stressful, and there are always going to be hard
uncertainties that can strain the individual's mind, and using figurative language helps the author
show this by comparing it to a worn branch. Frost shows his internal feelings with, "They are ...

The realizations he infers show what he thinks life truly is; for him "life is too much like a pathless

imagination, it is an escape from reality for him. Going to the top, climbing the tree, can help find
the a route through the "pathless wood". Frost's imagination is what feeds his happiness, it is what
separates the norm with the abnormalities. However, he knows that life is like a play, carefully
constructed and set for a reason; the author acknowledges this, "May no fate willfully misunderstand
me / And half grant what I wish and snatch me away / Not to return. Earth's the right place for love"
(50–53). At the end of "Birches", the author comes to a resolution; that though sometimes life can be

Wood Thrush
The data from the harvested stand and unharvested stand shows that wood thrush would likely be
able to find a suitable breeding, nesting, and foraging habitat in this section of the Vermont National
Forest (Table 1), particularly in the unharvested stand, though improved management practices
could make the harvested stand more suitable. Wood thrush commonly hide their nests under leaves
in a shady area in the midstory level, so it is important to have vertically and horizontally diverse
stands (Hagenbauch et al. 2011 a). The unharvested stand provides higher quality nesting and
breeding areas due to the higher density of stems in the midstory and canopy and greater canopy

Results are expected to vary due to site characteristics and management histories (Hoover et al.
2012), and in this case, invasive species and harvesting in the past century could have contributed to
our estimate being lower than the regional estimate of 116 Mg C/ha. Invasive species can affect
forest health, regeneration, and forest structure, so invasive species could have crowded out live
trees, decreasing the above–ground live tree carbon pool. The unharvested stand has not been cut in
the past three decades so this factor should not affect the above–ground carbon pool significantly,
though it has likely been harvested more than the old growth forest stands sampled in Hoover et al.
(2012) because there was no evidence of harvesting in those stands. Species composition of the
unharvested stand could have contributed to our estimate for the above–ground live tree carbon pool
being slightly higher than the estimate from Smith et al. (2004). Our unharvested stand was mainly
made up of sugar maple and beech trees (Figure 2.), and these two species contain more carbon than

Thankfully, Taylor has the help of Lou Ann and together they form a family. "Independent women
with children scratch out a meager existence. They are able to do so because of their mutual
independence, and that's a lesson in living" (Kelly and Kelly 2). The fact that Lou Ann and Taylor
can support each other in ways that they do makes them great mothers and role models to their
children. Thanks to each other Lou Ann and Taylor can properly support their children in ways they
could not do alone. There is many ways that Lou Ann and Taylor support each other, but one that
sticks out best is when Taylor works and Lou Ann stays home to watch the kids, and they each split
the cleaning to be equal with each other. The role that Taylor's mother plays is quite admirable,

Birches By Robert Frost Analysis
Robert Frost's "Birches" depicts the relationships between imagination and reality, liberation and
confinement, and youth and adulthood. The speaker of the poem battles with his current life–
adulthood, and uses his reminiscences of adolescence and his imagination as a means to escape from
his reality for a period of time. Frost uses three different themes that he presents in three sections to
represent his emotions: nature, a young boy, and a mature man who has the opportunity to reflect on
his past and current life. The use of nature helps the narrator of the poem to connect his life to his
surroundings. His connection with nature helps him come to a realization about his life, which
ultimately sparks the use of his avid imagination. The young boy represents the speaker in his youth
where he was free, had adventures, and had no demanding obligations. He represents a state of full
possibility where the narrator was able to explore any opportunity without harsh consequences. The
man at the end of the poem, is the speaker who is taking his whole life into consideration. He is
analyzing all the positives and negatives and figuring out the overall meaning of his life. Ultimately,
his reflection leads him to come to the conclusion that he took his youth for granted. Each section of
the speaker's life symbolizes his sense of yearning for adolescence and an escape from the
restrictions of his current state of life, adulthood. The setting of "Birches" is not explicitly stated

narratives to tell the story of Taylor Greer, a spunky girl who escapes her home and travels west.
Throughout her journey, Kingsolver exposes many themes; however, the debate of "Legality vs.
Morality" while decision–making is one of the most prominent. During Taylor's travels, she
experiences two major instances which center around this controversy – the issue of illegal
adoptions and the process of sheltering immigrants. Ultimately, Kingsolver uses these occurrences
to show that morals are the best method to use while making a decision. In her novel The Bean

This is underscored by the phrase "it would have been easier to separate me fr0m my hair". Because
pulling hair out is a very difficult task, this wording highlights how much Turtle needs Taylor and, in
turn, underscores the importance of Taylor caring for the child. Even though it is not legally correct
to take the child, it is the right decision; it would be immoral to leave an abused child with the
abuser. After highlighting the necessity of "adopting" Turtle, Kingsolver ultimately shows the
positive outcomes as a result of this undertaking. Kingsolver uses another extended metaphor during

Decision Tree Analysis On Decision Trees
Decision Tree Analysis
A decision tree is a widespread technique of designing and envisaging predictive patterns and
systems. It is a tree–structured design of a set of aspects to test in direction to expect the output.
Decision trees are effective and accepted implements for prediction and classification. The value of
decision trees is because of the reality that, in compare to neural networks, it signifies rules. Rules
can quickly be articulated so that individuals can comprehend them or even directly use up in a
database retrieve language as structured query language (SQL) so that keep information falling into
a certain sort may be accessed. Decision tree technique is mostly used for data classification, and it
differed into 2 phases; the tree pruning and the tree structure. The training data to create a test

contrast with another, it is a faster, more straightforward and easy to comprehend classification
systems, simply transformed into database uncertainties benefits, and particularly in problem
matters of high dimension can be incredibly decent classification outcomes. The decision tree is a
classification paradigm, applied to remaining data. If we apply it to special data, for which the class
is unidentified, we also get a prognostication of the class. The hypothesis is that the special data

My Love Of Love And Love In My Life
In my life, I have always tried to find things that make my life more joyful and peaceful, and there
really are three things that I can think of to best illustrate my love for peace and joy. The first is the
willow sapling that, to me, represents the joy of my childhood. The second is the guitar that I first
learned to play on, that represents my love of music and the peace that I get from it. The third is the
postcard I brought back from New Zealand that represents my love of travel and adventure and the
joy that it brings me. These things are the most important to me because they remind me to always
seek joy and peace in my life.
The first of three items that are most impactful in my life is the willow sapling we used to play with
as kids. Somewhere, lying on mossy green stones along the ruby river in Montana is a sprig of
willow, if it is not gone by now. A long time ago, way back when my family and I used to visit our

How Does Robert Frost Use The Use Of Imagery In Poetry?
Robert Frost describes the hardships of life through visual and auditory imagery of nature. To start
off, very early on Frost states, "When I see birches bend to left and right," this creates a vivid visual
of a cold, windy day when the birches are bending and it's almost referring to life and how when
hard things hit us we bend left and right trying not to break (1). Throughout part one of the poem
Frost uses the analogy of ice storms to life, "shattering and avalanching" (11). The use of shattering
and avalanching through auditory imagery creates an intense cacophonous feeling, because life can
be represented through shattering against all your burdens, and the word avalanching can relate to it

In a metaphoric way, this can compare to that of our emotions, once we've had many hardships it
can often fill our cups and to the brink of overflowing. The final transition to the third part of this
poem is set when he states, "So was I once myself a swinger of birches./And so I dream of going
back to be," ( 41–42). Robert Frost shifts from talking about a young boy he imagines swinging on a
birch tree, to himself as an older man. He seems to reflect on how he isn't young anymore, in a way
reminiscing. He wishes he were out there swinging on trees like he was a boy again. From here the
poem goes downhill, he provides a similie comparing life to be "too much like a pathless wood"
(44). In otherwords it could mean it is easy to get lost when there are no directions provided. His
wording of " I'd like to go by climbing a birch tree" is as if he is talking about his death (54). You
often hear people say, "I'd like to go in my sleep." The reader can make assumptions that he is
saying that he'd like to go to heaven by climbing a tree. Robert Frost concludes with, "One could do
worse than be a swinger of birches"

forest floor. She sprinted past her favorite climbing tree, her many braids, large and small, streaming

tallest tree of her quarter. She started to climb. Watching her climb was quite interesting because she

they were very prepared when they came of age. Rachel as you may have guessed was from the

otherwise you have to re–learn the year. Rachel still had to complete an adventure, but it would be
hard to convince her mother tree to let her go far. She rarely ever left her tree's range of vision, but it
had to be done and her mother wouldn't want her to fail the year. She lightly hopped down from the

could run it by her mother tree. "Mother, I've been thinking that I still haven't completed an
adventure this year and we haven't really discussed where I should go. I have what I think is a pretty
good idea. I should go to the Icey Mountains." She paused considering what her mother would say.

Introduction
I will be conducting an experiment which involves burning a forest to test the progression of the
forest fire in relation to the high density of trees in the forest. The general hypothesis in this case
would suggest the higher the density of trees, the further the fire would progress. I will be
conducting various tests to test this hypothesis. The variable that I will be changing is the population
of trees within the forest. To carry out this experiment I will be using a simulation which is created
by the use of a Net Logo environment.

The results are showing that as the density is decreasing so is the percentage being burnt. This time
the ticks increased showing the time taken to burn has increased. However, in this table I have got
an outlier. This outlier could have been caused by human fault. The outlier shows that this piece of
result wasn't accurate as it is totally different from the rest of the repeats.
Density Repeat % Burnt Ticks
50%
1 2.0% 295 2 1.8% 260 3 3.4% 190 4 2.5% 199 5 2.6% 175 Average 1.5% 223.8
The table above shows that an average of 1.5% of the trees got burnt when the tree density was
50%. These results show a significant drop in the percentage of the trees burnt. In addition, the ticks
have also decreased.
Density Repeat % Burnt Ticks
25%
1 0.5% 35 2 0.6% 46 3 0.7% 39 4 0.5% 39 5 0.7% 43 Average 0.6% 40.4
The table above shows that the average percentage of the tree's being burnt is 0.6% when the tree
density was only 25%. The ticks show an average of 40.4. If you compare this table to the table with
a density of 99% you can see there has been a significant drop in the percentage burnt as well as the
ticks.
The density of trees from 60% to 50% shows a significant change in the percentage burnt as well as

The field of artificial intelligence gained in popularity during the twentieth century, accompanying
the rise in ubiquity of computers. During this time, the main goal of research was to use computers
to solve problems in an intelligent manner. In other words, researchers sought to develop algorithms

creating programs that learn through a feedback cycle of self–testing and "adjusting internal

Forest Succession
Each type of tree has a different set of specific requirements for growth, and not every type of tree
can grow at any point of time or place. However, as time passes, the conditions of that location
might change, allowing for a different tree species to grow. This change in conditions is known as
forest succession. Forest succession is generally triggered by a disturbance, which is defined in this
case as an event that causes mortality. Forest succession is a natural process, and a lot of the time the
disturbance is also. In the past, natural disturbances including lightning strikes and resulting fires,
winds, tornadoes, disease and insects, ice, and storms. However, as settlers began moving westward

They are generally broken down into two groups: the early successional species and the late
successional species. The early successional trees generally grow fast and have high reproduction
rates, but don't live long and are shade intolerant. This group includes the birch family, black
cherries, and white pines. As time passes, the forest closes in, and trees begin to die. As the early
successional generation of trees die, the late successional group starts to grow and take over. This
group has a slow growth rate and long lifespan and includes the American beech, the oaks, and the
hemlock. Because of this succession, we develop two different types of forests, young growth and
old growth forests. Young growth forests consist of many of the early–successional trees and have
more trees overall, yet still tend to have less basal area, or the area taken up by the bases of the trees.
Old growth forests, on the other hand, are formed almost completely by late–successional trees with
the bases of the trees spaced further apart yet with more basal area. Here in this laboratory
experiment, we investigated the differences between an old growth (late–successional) forest and a
young (early–successional) forest. We measured the basal area of systematically selected trees,

where there was no her." (369) Contrary to the aforementioned passage, it is blackness that is

ability to distinguish the types of people who did and did not live in the area. The adventurous
childhood Kingsolver had and the area she grew up in helped influence her to write The Bean Trees.
Her longing for adventure carried over to Taylor and her personality. Kingsolver described some of
the perils Taylor would take. "When I was just the littlest kid I would go pond fishing on a Sunday
and bring home the boniest mess of blue–gills and maybe a bass the size of your thumb..."
(Kingsolver 3). One big adventure Taylor went on was her decision to drive until she found a
comfortable place that she would call her forever home. Along with these two prominent factors of
her childhood, Kingsolver and her family also moved across the world to Africa, where she learned
about another culture. At seven years of age, Wendell announced the family would relocate to Africa

multimedia data. Hence it is really difficult to access the huge amounts of data. There is need for an
efficient approach to organize the data and access the data in really short span of time. This system

Feminist Views And Author Connections In The Bean Trees

  • 1. Feminist Views and Author Connections in The Bean Trees Feminist Views and Author Connections in The Bean Trees Barbara Kingsolver, author of The Bean Trees, emphasizes her societal views throughout the novel and tells the story in the first person narrative of Taylor Greer, a practical but spirited girl trying to escape her simple and somewhat boring life to a more exciting one. Taylor's character reflects Kingsolver in the way that they both focus on creating a more just society in which women are treated as equals and have the same rights as men. They both share a pride of being female and attempt to better the lifestyles of other women in their societies. Barbara Kingsolver writes novels which focus on social justice and she often writes about situations that are familiar, basing much of her writing on places or experiences that are personal to her. Kingsolver's early life experiences in Arizona influence the characters, such as Taylor, who are developed in The Bean Trees and she connects these life experiences to the characters to express her feminist views and inform the reader of her concerns on this topic and demonstrates ways through her literature in which people can help solve the societal problems that women face. Kingsolver uses her literature to express her feelings through her characters, specifically Taylor Greer, who resembles Kingsolver at a young age. Both Kingsolver and Taylor have pride in being women and they want to ensure that women have the same rights as men do. They share these similar social views ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Personal Narrative-Painted Path Hidden under the mass of the dark green foliage was the opening to a small sandy path, scuffed by the shoes and sandals that have pounded over it for the past few years. Teenagers of all ages would gather along the weathered path, adventuring through the undergrowth by passing through the woody terrain. The serenade of birds, along with the crackling of dried leaves and broken branches, was drowned out by the excited clamor of teenagers passing by. Although the well worn path was covered by huge oak trees that towered like skyscrapers, reaching up into the clear blue skies scattered with wisps of clouds, hints of sunlight broke free from the thick pile of leaves, illuminating the end of the pathway. At the end of the path lay a rocky wall, ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... My father and mother always used to tell me about how beautiful I was, about how handsome and strong I was. Although I loved to hear their stories, I've seen the birth certificates and I knew the truth. I knew that I was born at 3 pounds, much lower than the average 7.5 pounds that newborn babies usually weigh. I knew that I was unusually quiet, that I had trouble breathing, and that there was something wrong with me. My parents, although they always tried to do the best for me, were horrible liars; I am different, and I've learn to embrace it. When I was around 3 years old, my parents noticed something peculiar about me. At first sight, I seemed normal; mahogany locks littered all over my head, clear blue eyes and a short build. Other kids my age, however, would be forming sentences and learning new words, while I would always stay silent. For the next two years, I had difficulty forming sentences, making me intellectually inferior to the other kids in my grade. A trip to the doctor's office explained this, as I was diagnosed with Neurogenic Stuttering, a disease that prevented me from speaking normally.

  • 13. A Note On Detection Algorithm 2.1 PAGE CHANGE DETECTION ALGORITHM 2.1.1 Introduction: About 60% of the content on the web is dynamic. It is quiet possible that after downloading a particular web page, the local copy of the page residing in the repository of the web pages becomes obsolete compared to the copy on the web. Therefore a need arises to update the database of web pages. Once a decision has been taken to update the pages, it should be ensured that minimal resources are used in the process. Updating only those elements of the database, which have actually undergone a change, can do this. Importance of web pages to be downloaded has been discussed in the above section. It also checks whether the page is already there in the database or not and lowers its priority value if it is referred rather frequently. In this section, we discuss some algorithms to derive certain parameters, which can help in deriving the fact whether the page has changed, or not. These parameters will be calculated at the time of page parsing. When the client again counters the same URL, it just calculates the code by parsing the page without downloading the page and compares it to the current parameters. If changes in parameters are detected, it is concluded that the page has changed and needs to be downloaded again. Otherwise the URL is discarded immediately without further processing. The following changes are of importance when considering changes in a web page: Change in page structure. Change in text contents. ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

The thinking of aA privileged American, one such as Donald Trump, who has the net worth of four billion dollars, wouldn't know the challenges that immigrants experience. The Bean Trees, by Barbara Kingsolver, highlights some of the many issues immigrants face when living in America. In The Bean Trees, the character Taylor decides to makes a life changing decision to leave her hometown for good. However, she had acquired a child, whom she names Turtle, and she is suddenly faced with the hardness of a mother in a land filled with social injustices that is constantly tripping her.

She tells a story about pair of immigrants who were discovered deadkilled after deportation. "Then the TV showed both Mattie and the interview man talking without sound, and another man's voice told us that the immigration and naturalization service had returned to illegal aliens, a woman and her son, to her native El Salvador last week, and that Mattie claimed that had been taken into custody when they stepped off the plane in san Salvador and later were found dead in a ditch" (Kingsolver 105– 106). This shows how America doesn't care about what happens to illegal immigrants after they've been deported. This is another example of how immigrants suffer due to the ignorance of Americans. Lou Ann has invited several people, including Estevan to a dinner party. During the party, Estevan tells a 'Wild Indian Story', "If you go visit hell... people sit, like us. Only they are dying of starvation...you can go visit heaven...you see a room like the first one... but these people are all happy and fat" (Kingsolver 107–108). The story is supposed to be a metaphor to represent how immigrants suffer in the same system as Whites who benefit in the system. Due to this, a lot of privileged Americans do not see how the immigrants are suffering. Taylor was walking through a room that used to hold a family on immigrants. ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 17. The Bean Trees Literary Analysis In the famous poem The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus, America is deemed a land of "world wide welcome" for those who seek a new place to call home. The Statue of Liberty is established early on in the piece as a symbol of freedom and protection, a statue symbolic of the spirit of America. In the piece, Lazarus refers to immigrants as the "poor, huddled masses" to whom the United States offers a pair of open "golden doors." However, many immigrants today feel far removed from the land of freedom referenced in The New Colossus. The promise of a blue sky with endless possibilities is far from reality for the Americans that the poem calls the huddled masses. It is clear that America's promise of freedom and opportunity, characterized by the ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... The unaccepting nature of US citizens is one flaw in the idea of America's wide open golden doors. The blame and stereotypes added to an immigrant's burden prevents them from ever feeling welcome and eliminating the gap between immigrants and Americans born in the US. In a poem written about the calling of Japanese–Americans to internment camps during WWII, author Dwight Okita writes from the perspective of a young girl who sees herself as an American but is surrounded by those who cast her out. She does everything to prove that she belongs and justifies that by convincing the audience of her American qualities. "If it helps any, I will tell you I have always felt funny using chopsticks and my favorite food is hot dogs. My best friend is a white girl named Denise." Okita's use of this 14 year old girl adds power behind his words because the perspective of a child can humble a reader and bring them to a point of deeper understanding. In the poem, the girl is so young and understands nothing about what lies ahead, but she knows well enough to present herself as an American, as one who truly belongs. The pressure on immigrants to belong in the United states is imminent in this piece, and the fact that the young girl has picked up on this expectation is almost disturbing. The stigma around those who are different is also included in Okita's ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

An advantage of Birch is its capacity to incrementally and dynamically cluster incoming, multi– dimensional metric data points in an effort to generate the best quality clustering for a given set of resources (memory and time constraints). In most cases, Birch only requires a single scan of the database. In addition, Birch is accepted as the, "first clustering algorithm proposed in the database area to handle 'noise' (data points that are not part of the underlying pattern) efficiently. Clustering Feature and CF Tree The idea of Clustering Feature and CF tree are at the core of BIRCH'S incremental clustering. A Clustering Feature is a triple summarizing the information that we maintain about a cluster. Definition: Known N d–dimensions data points in a cluster :{Xi} where i=1, 2,..., N, the Clustering Feature (CF) vector of cluster is defined as a triple:CF=(N,LS,SS), where N is the number of data points in the cluster, LS is the linear sum of the N data points,i.e. N,Xi, and SS is the square sum of the N data points i.e. submission of points n up to sum numbers Xi,.

Modifying the path to the leaf: After inserting "Ent" into a leaf, we must bring up to date the CF information for each nonleaf entry on the path to the leaf. In the absence of a split, this basically involves adding CF vectors to reflect the addition of "Ent". A leaf split requires us to insert a new nonleaf entry into the parent node, to illustrate the newly created leaf. If the parent has space for this entry, at all higher levels, we only need to bring up to date the CF vectors to reflect the addition of "Ent".

In a forest system both the canopy and the understory absorb light. The type of forest and leaf cover present determines the amount of light that reaches the understory. This can be measured using the LAI (Leaf Area Index), which is the amount of leaves per unit ground area. Light quantity in forests is affected by several factors such as tree species, age, and density. Looking at the amount of light that can penetrate to the understory also shows how much moisture can reach that level. The amount of light and moisture that reaches the forest floor determines how much biomass will be present in this layer. The goal of ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Essay on Figurative Language in A Work of Artifice Figurative Language in A Work of Artifice by Marge Piercy "A clever trick, crafty device, or stratagem" is how Webster's Encyclopedia of Unabridged Dictionary of the English Language defines Artifice. Marge Piercy definitely used "crafty" techniques in writing "A Work of Artifice." In this poem, Piercy reflects on the growth of a bonsai tree, considering the molded existence of what it is to what it could have naturally been. With deeper analysis of this poem, the correlation between a bonsai tree and the shaped role of women within society becomes evident. The poet introduces one specific metaphor in the beginning, comparing the growth of a bonsai tree to the development of women. This single metaphor is supported throughout ...

Readers visualize an incredibly precise little gardener, as he diligently prunes the bonsai tree. Another of Piercy's lines' is, "could have grown eighty feet tall on the side of a mountain till split by lightning." Again the reader is provided with detailed illustrations and sounds that correlate with the picture. In this line, for instance, a magnificent tree high above the skyline, destroyed both by a visual bolt of lightening and a booming crack of thunder can be seen. Examples of imagery are abundant throughout Piercy's entire poem. As readers look at the poem externally, the imagery is directly related to a vision of the bonsai tree. With further internal analysis, it becomes evident that there is slight ambiguity within these lines, lending themselves to have connotative meanings. In such a way, the sense–provoking images the writer includes relate not only to describing a bonsai tree, but also to explaining the role of women within society. Specifically, the double meanings of the imagery can be deciphered through examination of the writer's use of metaphors. Each of the descriptions about the bonsai tree can be applied to women.

You see a sparkling beach edging a gentle, clear sea, and farther in, a thick forest. Glancing down the shore, the sand continues endlessly in a way that makes it hard to tell whether this is an island or the mainland. There is no boat in sight, and so you decide to head into the forest to find some sort of civilization. As soon as you step under the canopy of the trees, the temperature seems to drop by about ten degrees. You walk farther in with no clear direction in mind. Turning around, you find that you can no longer see the beach, and realize that maybe walking in without a plan was not such a good idea. At this point, you have completely lost your bearings. Still, it seems to you that it might be wise to leave some sort of markings to help you figure out from which direction you came. Now as you walk, you break the branches at eye level on your right hand side. After about an hour of wandering, you see a wider clearing up ahead, and hasten your speed toward it.

Trees and plants represent life in the novel which ties into the overarching theme of the dehumanization that comes from slavery. Many of the characters in Beloved have been subjected to awful events causing them to feel as if they were worse than animals. Because of this, many characters look to the beauty of nature and trees in particular, to help them heal from their time in slavery. For example, Baby Suggs decided to preach in a place called The Clearing, which is surrounded by tall trees. "In the Clearing, Sethe found Baby's old preaching rock and remembered the smell of leaves simmering in the sun, thunderous feet and the shouts that ripped pods off the limbs of chestnuts. With Baby Suggs' heart in charge, the people let go." (Morrison 94) Another example of trees bringing healing to the characters in the novel is the arrival of Beloved. "A fully dressed woman walked out of the water. She barely gained the dry bank of the stream before she sat down and leaned against a mulberry tree."(Morrison 60) This tree represents a chance at a new life for Beloved and also offers Sethe a chance to heal.

  • 31. How Does Frost Use Figurative Language In Birches The poem, "Birches" written by Robert Frost, depicts author's personal desire to escape the normality of life through the mirage of climbing a birch tree. With distinctive use of diction, imagery, and figurative language, Frost manages to indirectly understand his way of perceiving life. His view of the normality and repetition that exists everyday is hidden within words written. When seeing Birch trees, bent by the cumbersome snow of the long winter, Frost likes to imagine a boy's "been swinging them" (Frost, 3). This is a portrayal of his desire to escape the mundane characteristics of everyday life, and enjoy himself by imagining the boy "riding them down over and over again" (29). Life can be laborious and stressful, and there are always going to be hard uncertainties that can strain the individual's mind, and using figurative language helps the author show this by comparing it to a worn branch. Frost shows his internal feelings with, "They are ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... The realizations he infers show what he thinks life truly is; for him "life is too much like a pathless wood, / where your face burns and tickles with the cobwebs" (44–45).

Frost's imagination is what feeds his happiness, it is what separates the norm with the abnormalities. However, he knows that life is like a play, carefully constructed and set for a reason; the author acknowledges this, "May no fate willfully misunderstand me / And half grant what I wish and snatch me away / Not to return. Earth's the right place for love" (50–53).

Wood Thrush The data from the harvested stand and unharvested stand shows that wood thrush would likely be able to find a suitable breeding, nesting, and foraging habitat in this section of the Vermont National Forest (Table 1), particularly in the unharvested stand, though improved management practices could make the harvested stand more suitable. Wood thrush commonly hide their nests under leaves in a shady area in the midstory level, so it is important to have vertically and horizontally diverse stands (Hagenbauch et al. 2011 a). The unharvested stand provides higher quality nesting and breeding areas due to the higher density of stems in the midstory and canopy and greater canopy closer (Table 1).

Results are expected to vary due to site characteristics and management histories (Hoover et al. 2012), and in this case, invasive species and harvesting in the past century could have contributed to our estimate being lower than the regional estimate of 116 Mg C/ha. Invasive species can affect forest health, regeneration, and forest structure, so invasive species could have crowded out live trees, decreasing the above–ground live tree carbon pool. The unharvested stand has not been cut in the past three decades so this factor should not affect the above–ground carbon pool significantly, though it has likely been harvested more than the old growth forest stands sampled in Hoover et al. (2012) because there was no evidence of harvesting in those stands. Species composition of the unharvested stand could have contributed to our estimate for the above–ground live tree carbon pool being slightly higher than the estimate from Smith et al. (2004). Our unharvested stand was mainly made up of sugar maple and beech trees (Figure 2.), and these two species contain more carbon than birch (Jenkins et al. 2003).

  • 37. Birches By Robert Frost Analysis Robert Frost's "Birches" depicts the relationships between imagination and reality, liberation and confinement, and youth and adulthood. The speaker of the poem battles with his current life– adulthood, and uses his reminiscences of adolescence and his imagination as a means to escape from his reality for a period of time. Frost uses three different themes that he presents in three sections to represent his emotions: nature, a young boy, and a mature man who has the opportunity to reflect on his past and current life. The use of nature helps the narrator of the poem to connect his life to his surroundings. His connection with nature helps him come to a realization about his life, which ultimately sparks the use of his avid imagination. The young boy represents the speaker in his youth where he was free, had adventures, and had no demanding obligations. He represents a state of full possibility where the narrator was able to explore any opportunity without harsh consequences. The man at the end of the poem, is the speaker who is taking his whole life into consideration. He is analyzing all the positives and negatives and figuring out the overall meaning of his life. Ultimately, his reflection leads him to come to the conclusion that he took his youth for granted. Each section of the speaker's life symbolizes his sense of yearning for adolescence and an escape from the restrictions of his current state of life, adulthood.

During Taylor's travels, she experiences two major instances which center around this controversy – the issue of illegal adoptions and the process of sheltering immigrants.

To start off, very early on Frost states, "When I see birches bend to left and right," this creates a vivid visual of a cold, windy day when the birches are bending and it's almost referring to life and how when hard things hit us we bend left and right trying not to break (1). Throughout part one of the poem Frost uses the analogy of ice storms to life, "shattering and avalanching" (11). The use of shattering and avalanching through auditory imagery creates an intense cacophonous feeling, because life can be represented through shattering against all your burdens, and the word avalanching can relate to it coming rather quickly as if blindsided by the ...

The final transition to the third part of this poem is set when he states, "So was I once myself a swinger of birches./And so I dream of going back to be," ( 41–42). Robert Frost shifts from talking about a young boy he imagines swinging on a birch tree, to himself as an older man. He seems to reflect on how he isn't young anymore, in a way reminiscing. He wishes he were out there swinging on trees like he was a boy again. From here the poem goes downhill, he provides a similie comparing life to be "too much like a pathless wood" (44). In otherwords it could mean it is easy to get lost when there are no directions provided. His wording of " I'd like to go by climbing a birch tree" is as if he is talking about his death (54).

Investigation Plan Introduction I will be conducting an experiment which involves burning a forest to test the progression of the forest fire in relation to the high density of trees in the forest. The general hypothesis in this case would suggest the higher the density of trees, the further the fire would progress. I will be conducting various tests to test this hypothesis. The variable that I will be changing is the population of trees within the forest. To carry out this experiment I will be using a simulation which is created by the use of a Net Logo environment. Method To carry out this experiment I will use various tree densities to test how much of the forest will burn. I will be using the ticks to see how long it would take for ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... The results are showing that as the density is decreasing so is the percentage being burnt. This time the ticks increased showing the time taken to burn has increased. However, in this table I have got an outlier. This outlier could have been caused by human fault. The outlier shows that this piece of result wasn't accurate as it is totally different from the rest of the repeats. Density Repeat % Burnt Ticks 50% 1 2.0% 295 2 1.8% 260 3 3.4% 190 4 2.5% 199 5 2.6% 175 Average 1.5% 223.8 The table above shows that an average of 1.5% of the trees got burnt when the tree density was 50%. These results show a significant drop in the percentage of the trees burnt. In addition, the ticks have also decreased. Density Repeat % Burnt Ticks 25% 1 0.5% 35 2 0.6% 46 3 0.7% 39 4 0.5% 39 5 0.7% 43 Average 0.6% 40.4 The table above shows that the average percentage of the tree's being burnt is 0.6% when the tree density was only 25%. The ticks show an average of 40.4. If you compare this table to the table with a density of 99% you can see there has been a significant drop in the percentage burnt as well as the ticks.

  • 60. Induction Of Decision Trees : Analysis The paper, Induction of Decision Trees, briefly discusses the history of machine learning algorithms, the decision tree family of algorithms and their various use cases before giving an in depth explanation of the ID3 algorithm. This essay focuses on a couple of central ideas behind induction on decision trees. The first section will contain general background information and context leading up to the creation of decision trees. Once the context is established, there will be a quick introduction into the ID3 algorithm. This will be followed by a more rigorous discussion of the concepts of shannon's entropy and information gain. Following the discussion on entropy there will be a quick overview on the proposed methods of handling noisy data. The last section will contain a critique of the paper. The field of artificial intelligence gained in popularity during the twentieth century, accompanying the rise in ubiquity of computers. During this time, the main goal of research was to use computers to solve problems in an intelligent manner. In other words, researchers sought to develop algorithms that learn how to solve problems. Quinlan mentions that one group of researchers focused on creating programs that learn through a feedback cycle of self–testing and "adjusting internal parameters." A good example of this would be a program written to play checkers against itself many thousands of times. Each time a sequences of moves produces a winning result, that sequence is given a ...

  • 62. Forest Succession Each type of tree has a different set of specific requirements for growth, and not every type of tree can grow at any point of time or place. However, as time passes, the conditions of that location might change, allowing for a different tree species to grow. This change in conditions is known as forest succession. Forest succession is generally triggered by a disturbance, which is defined in this case as an event that causes mortality. Forest succession is a natural process, and a lot of the time the disturbance is also. In the past, natural disturbances including lightning strikes and resulting fires, winds, tornadoes, disease and insects, ice, and storms. However, as settlers began moving westward through untouched areas, they started ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... They are generally broken down into two groups: the early successional species and the late successional species. The early successional trees generally grow fast and have high reproduction rates, but don't live long and are shade intolerant. This group includes the birch family, black cherries, and white pines. As time passes, the forest closes in, and trees begin to die. As the early successional generation of trees die, the late successional group starts to grow and take over. This group has a slow growth rate and long lifespan and includes the American beech, the oaks, and the hemlock. Because of this succession, we develop two different types of forests, young growth and old growth forests. Young growth forests consist of many of the early–successional trees and have more trees overall, yet still tend to have less basal area, or the area taken up by the bases of the trees. Old growth forests, on the other hand, are formed almost completely by late–successional trees with the bases of the trees spaced further apart yet with more basal area. Here in this laboratory experiment, we investigated the differences between an old growth (late–successional) forest and a young (early–successional) forest. We measured the basal area of systematically selected trees, ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

A Thousand Splendid Sun Belonging Quotes There are several passages in Benang where a tree could be substituted with (part) Aboriginal person and it would be a description, fitting in with the rest of the narration. The words that Scott puts into the mouth of his protagonist illustrates the metaphor. Grandad wrote: Using this image of a tree Scott also illustrates the rebellion of the people that are supposed to be displaced, dispersed, dismissed. The scene from which the quoted above is taken, features a white man, Ernest, who commands the total destruction and uprooting of a certain tree. He is said to fear that the roots of the tree threaten the foundations of his home. (Cf. 107) When it looks as if his order has been carried out he is pleased. However, the rebellious part–Aboriginal grandson who seeks revenge for the bereavement of his Aboriginal heritage availed himself of the limited picture Ernest has of the world, framed by the window he looks through. Similarly the resistance of Aboriginal people sometimes proceeded under the pretext of obedience. To Ernest's horror, the tree ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... One scene where the choice of colour stands in contrast to the above mentioned passage can be found on page 369, where Topsy and her son are starring into an old mirror. "The mirror in the bedroom had patches missing and her face was incomplete. There were areas of blackness, pieces where there was no her." (369) Contrary to the aforementioned passage, it is blackness that is attributed in a negative way. Topsy, of Aboriginal descent, observes "pieces where there was no her" and those pieces are black. Consequently it can be interpreted that she is imperfect because of the blackness that is apparent in her appearance. This interpretation is supported by the passage preceding the mirror scene on page 34, where Topsy tries to be as much like the other women in town as possible, but all her efforts remain fruitless because blackness is still apparent and she is thus ...

Geographical facts and information present in the novel came from Kingsolver's knowledge of the area. "Hughes Walker was no Kentucky boy" (Kingsolver 4). This quote acknowledged Kingsolver's ability to distinguish the types of people who did and did not live in the area. The adventurous childhood Kingsolver had and the area she grew up in helped influence her to write The Bean Trees. Her longing for adventure carried over to Taylor and her personality. Kingsolver described some of the perils Taylor would take. "When I was just the littlest kid I would go pond fishing on a Sunday and bring home the boniest mess of blue–gills and maybe a bass the size of your thumb..." (Kingsolver 3). One big adventure Taylor went on was her decision to drive until she found a comfortable place that she would call her forever home. Along with these two prominent factors of her childhood, Kingsolver and her family also moved across the world to Africa, where she learned about another culture. At seven years of age, Wendell announced the family would relocate to Africa so he could be more efficacious in his practice of medicine ("The Bean Trees: Barbara Kingsolver"). While living in Africa, Kingsolver experienced the feeling of being an outsider which led her to a more secluded life as she believed she did not fit in.

This approach is dynamic and allows for efficient retrieval of data items without any basic indexing structure as progressive query is used. However the progressive Query gives optimal result only under progressive query condition. Even noise in the audio or video is not considered in the database. In the current industry, uses of digital libraries have increased rapidly leading to the growth of multimedia data. Hence it is really difficult to access the huge amounts of data. There is need for an efficient approach to organize the data and access the data in really short span of time. This system [4] follows a tree structure to index the data and access every node. The nodes are divided leaf nodes and non–leaf node, leaf node having information of its distance to the nearest neighbor, dimensional features of the node itself. It is implemented as arrays of information, containing the address to leaf nodes and minimum distance to the neighboring nodes similar non–leaf node. In this way the nodes are arranged and indexed, used as indexes to make searching easy. In the approach nearest neighbor can be accessed easily. Since single indexing is used for entire system, the same indexing can be used for both inserting and deleting. It also works in high dimensional environment. The ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
