Satiric Essay

...The contradictive topic of environmentalism leads to unproductive discussions. Edward O. Wilson’s satire illustrates this concept through a unique structure, parallelism, and diction. The discussions of the topic, environmentalism, are unproductive and redundant in nature. The parallelism of the two passages show how contradictive both arguments are. In the beginning, the passages both share the commonality of name calling. The use of parallelism illustrates how a discussion of this topic is useless. If both sides of the argument are only coming up with statements to oppose each other, there can not be a clear victor. In this circumstance, parallelism serves to primarily illustrate the satirical lens of the argument. Both passages view the ultimate agenda of the environmentalist and the “brown- lasher;” both claiming that each other is after either capitalism, or governmental power. The obvious structure of the passages, also illustrate that there is an unsettling nature of environmentalist discussions. The divisions of the two topics into two separate passages show how people are contradictive. This also emphasizes on the parallelism of the two passages. Parallelism in the entirety of the passages exemplifies that the nature of such discussions are ridiculous and unproductive in nature. The satirical lens of the literary work cannot be over looked. The sarcastic and critical diction emphasizes on the opposing attitudes about environmentalism.......

Hebrew Poetry

...(1) synonomous parallelism  and an example of (2) antithetical parallelism. - Write out the passage here (Also give book, chapter, verse/s) for each passage - Evaluate the parallelism in each example (what is parallel?) and then state how you think the parallelism deepens the meaning. In Psalms 8:7 we see an example of synonymous parallelism. Here the second line repeats the idea or content of the first line, but in different terms. By doing this the second line fortifies the first enhancing significance and meaning. Psalms 8:7 7 You have given them rule over the works of your hands, put all things at their feet: In Psalms 20:9 we see an example of antithetical parallelism. Here the meaning of two or more passages of text are in opposition, although obviously related and having the same significance from differing perspectives. Here again the second line fortifies the first enhancing significance and meaning. Psalms 20:9 9 They collapse and fall, but we stand strong and firm. The use of both synonymous and antithetical parallelism attaches evenness, value and a sense of balance to the written piece. Both forms of parallelism provide for a greater appreciation through frame of reference and point of view. Hey Richard, Nice post. You have provided some really great examples and what you state about good and bad is so true. It is a lesson I have learned throughout life and seems to have its roots in the Bible. Now that I understand what parallelism is and how......

Compute Unified Device Architecture

...of CUDA, which tells us why and how CUDA scores over other parallel programming architectures. Introduction: Parallelism is the age old technique used for the efficient data processing. The same technique re-emerging into TLP i.e., Thread Level Parallelism and in combination with some finely developed manufacturing technologies provided the world with huge benefits in the form of multi cores. Generally a GPU (Graphical Processing Unit) consists of multiple number of cores for the same reason as gaming is all about “all happening at the same time”, which requires parallelism. Each new generation of GPUs provides flexible programmability and computational power which exceeds previous generations. Nowadays, graphics hardware is capable of executing increasingly complex algorithms, previously handled only with CPUs. Processing non-graphics tasks on GPUs spurred the development of programming models. The GPU (Graphical Processing Unit) is turning into GPGPU (General Purpose Graphical Processing Unit). That means “all at the same time” technique is being applicable to the real time applications other than graphics as well. Various interfaces for high-performance, data-parallel computations exist, among others NVIDIA’s CUDA [NVI07b], AMD’sCTM [PSG06], Brook [BFH * 04] and Sh[MQP02]and their spin-offs Peak Stream and Rapid-Mind. All expose the intrinsic parallelism of GPUs to the user and provide means to perform general-purpose computations. Out of the above interfaces,......

Challenges for Multicore Programming

...the complexity of parallelization by using auto parallelizing compilers. Compiler-based auto-parallelization is a much studied area, yet has still not found wide-spread application. This is largely due to the poor exploitation of parallelism inherent in program logic (often referred to as application parallelism), subsequently resulting in performance levels far below those which a skilled expert programmer could achieve. Most of today’s approaches for parallel programming for multicores depend on the programmer’s ability to create and express an algorithm as a parallel program using the various languages or libraries available for multicore programming. Multicore programming can be achieved using are various programming models and libraries. Thread based models utilize multiple threads to express parallelism. However, if number of threads in execution is explicitly created and managed by the programmer, then the scalability of the program for target hardware of the future with larger number of cores becomes an issue. For this reason, explicit creation and management of threads is discouraged in parallel programming. Today’s parallel programming models like OpenMP, Intel’s thread building blocks and Cilk utilize what is known as user guided parallelism. In this model, the programmer is responsible for identifying parallel tasks within his/her code, but he/she does not explicitly write threads to handle these parallel tasks. Rather, these parallel units are indicated to the......

Ap Essay

...thoughts and emotions concerning the terrorist attack. In the opening of Bush’s speech, he uses parallelism when he says, “After all that has just passed, all the lives taken, and all the possibilities … one of fear,” and then uses it again when he states “We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail” in the second paragraph. These uses of parallelism help support the point he is trying to make; America must stay united and move forward. Prime Minister Blair, on the other hand, utilizes euphemisms to make his speech more compassionate and touching. For example, when he says “The woman, seven months pregnant, whose child will never know its father, did nothing wrong,” instead of saying the father died, he softens his words to be more respectful to the mourning families. He uses a euphemism again when he says, “imploring you to believe them ... all hope was gone.” In this instance, he uses “all hope was gone” instead of saying “they were killed mercilessly by the terrorist attack”. Both Bush and Blair utilize parallelism and euphemisms in their speeches to effectively convey their thoughts about the September 11th terrorist attack. President Bush and Prime Minister Blair both used different tones and a variety of rhetorical strategies throughout their speeches to express their true feelings. Bush’s speech had a mostly encouraging tone combined with parallelism, while Blair’s speech had a more emotional and touching tone and utilized euphemisms. Although......

Vliw and Super Scalar Processor

...architectures are characterized by instructions that each specify several independent operations. This is compared to RISC instructions that typically specify one operation and CISC instructions that typicallyspecify several dependent operations. VLIW instructions are necessarily longer than RISC or CISC instructions, thus the name. The techniques used to achieve high performance, however, are very different because the parallelism is explicit in VLIW instructions but must be discovered by hardware at run time by superscalar processors. VLIW implementations are simpler for very high performance. Just as RISC architectures permit simpler, cheaper high-performance implementations than do CISCs, VLIW architectures are simpler and cheaper than RISCs because of further hardware simplifications. VLIW architectures, however, require more compiler support. WHY VLIW? The key to higher performance in microprocessors for a broad range of applications is the ability to exploit fine-grain, instruction-level parallelism. Some methods for exploiting fine grain parallelism include: * + pipelining * + multiple processors * + superscalar implementation * + specifying multiple independent operations per instruction Pipelining is now universally implemented in high-performance processors. Little more can be gained by improving the implementation of a single pipeline. Using multiple processors improves performance for only a restricted set of applications. Superscalar......

Liberty for All

...Liberty for All Imagine having your home town invaded, torn apart, and taken away from you. This was happening to the residents of among the thirteen colonies in 1775. British soldiers were sailing across the sea by the boatload, and taking away everything the colonists knew and loved. Patrick Henry, however, was one man who stood above the rest, and was not willing to accept the tyranny of the British. Henry addressed what was known as the Virginia Convention, and gave what ended up being one of the greatest speeches of all time. Using rhetorical questions, repetition, symbolism, personification, allusion, and parallelism, Patrick Henry urged the members of the Virginia Convention and the citizens of every county in Virginia to fight back against the British and regain their freedom and hometown. One of the strongest and most often used rhetorical devices that Henry used was rhetorical question. Many of these questions were asked so the members of the Virginia Convention would better understand that they needed to go to war. Henry asked “Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love?” Up until this point in time, the citizens of the colonies had been nothing but cooperative to the British. Even though the members of the Virginia Convention knew that British weren’t invading out of love, Henry asks this question to prove that they had done......

...grammar, parallelism, also known as parallel structure or parallel construction, is a balance within one or more sentences of similar phrases or clauses that have the same grammatical structure.[1] The application of parallelism improves writing style and readability, and is thought to make sentences easier to process.[2] Parallelism is often achieved using antithesis, anaphora, asyndeton, climax, epistrophe, and symphonic.[3] : Lacking parallelism: She likes cooking, jogging, and to read. Lacking parallelism: "He likes to swim and running". Parallel: She likes cooking, jogging, and reading. Parallel: She likes to cook, jog, and read. Parallel: "He likes to swim and run." Parallel: "He likes swimming and running." In the above example, the first sentence has two gerunds and one infinitive. To make it parallel, the sentence can be rewritten with three gerunds or three infinitives. Lacking parallelism: The dog ran across the yard, jumped over the fence, and down the alley he sprinted. Parallel: The dog ran across the yard, jumped over the fence, and sprinted down the alley. Note that the first nonparallel example, while inelegantly worded, is grammatically correct: "cooking," "jogging," and "to read" are all grammatically valid conclusions to "She likes." The second nonparallel example is not grammatically correct: "down the alley he sprinted" is not a grammatically valid conclusion to "The dog."

A new job is likely to cause a person anxiety, but working extra hours is likely to make a good impression. Exercise 3 2. “Caught in” and “tied in”. King used two parallel verb phrases followed by an abstract idea. The parallelism creates a wise tone in the sentence which keeps them awake, alert, and listening. 4. “Collection of the facts to determine whether injustices exist; negotiation; self-purification; and direct action”. King uses parallel phrases that all relate back to a nonviolent campaign. His use of parallelism appeals to logos, as he provides the audience with a list of action. 6. “extremist for love”, “extremist for justice”, and “extremist for the Christian gospel: "I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus?" Was not Martin Luther an extremist”. King paralleled the phrase “extremist for…” followed by a cause and preceded by a famous example. He then used a quote to prove the point he was making. The parallel structures provides a lot of emphasis, which supports the point King was trying to make. The parallelism attributes to a great deal of logos as well. Exercise 5 2. “Alas, art is long and life is short” Type: Antithesis Effect:Franklin’s use of anaphora conveys to the audience the obvious length of time that are lives that is much longer than the human life by comparing the two unlike concepts. c.

Big Data

...connotation and characteristics of data. Users also can change the settings of visualization systems to gain understanding of different aspects of the data. Visualization can quickly and effectively simplify and refine data streams and helps users to filter large amounts of data. There are four basic technologies in data visualization: data streaming, task parallelism, pipeline parallelism and data parallelism. Data streaming will divide the data into separate blocks and process them in turn. It is the main measure when the data scale is much larger than the computing resources. It is able to handle any scale of data but usually it requires a very long processing time so that it is difficult to provide a data mining. Task parallelism is the parallel processing of multiple independent tasks. This method requires an algorithm to decompose the task to subtasks and requires multiple computing resources. The method of pipeline parallelism will simultaneously process different data sub-block of multiple independent tasks. Data parallelism is the parallel processing of the data sub-blocks. This kind of method can reach very high level parallelism and at the time of increased nodes computing can achieve better extensibility. Data privacy and security Using file access control to restrict operations on the data can solve the data security issue on certain level. Encryption on the infrastructures will keep the storage devices of big data safe, but it cannot solve the essence......

...Automatic - The compiler analyzes the source code and identifies opportunities for parallelism. - The analysis includes identifying inhibitors to parallelism and possibly a cost weighting on whether or not the parallelism would actually improve performance. - Loops (do,for) are the most frequent target for automatic parallelization. B. Programmer Directed - Using "compiler directives" or possibly compiler flags, the programmer explicitly tells the compiler how to parallelize the code. - May be able to be used in conjunction with some degree of automatic parallelization also. - The most common compiler generated parallelization is done using on-node shared memory and threads (such as OpenMP). Caveats (warning/caution) that apply to automatic parallelization: 1. Wrong results may be produced. 2. Performance may actually degrade. 3. Much less flexible than manual parallelization. 4. Limited to a subset (mostly loops) of code. 5. May actually not parallelize code if the compiler analysis suggests there are inhibitors or the code is too complex. Understand the Problem and the Program - The first step in developing parallel software: understand the problem that you wish to solve in parallel. - Determine whether ot not the problem is one that can actually be parallelized - Identify the program's hotspots - Identify the program's bottlenecks - Identify inhibitors to parallelism. - Investigate other algorithms if possible. - Take advantage of......

A New Method of Co-Scheduling Cuda Kernels

...exploit of higher level parallelism in DLP, TLP, and less consumption compared with single processor architecture, Multicore processors has become the main stream architecture. However, the performance cannot always be improved by adding cores into a chip because of the memory bandwidth limit. The performance is especially bad for data-intensive programs like informatics applications. Moreover, the function of multicore processors is fixed whose flexibility is not enough for numerable applications. Heterogeneous multicore architecture with specialized accelerator is a more flexibility way for high performance computer. Reconfigurable computer and graphics processing unit (GPU) are considered as two promising approach in this situation. The nature of GPU, which is particularly designed for applications with large computational requirements, provides huge parallel speedups over traditional multicore processors. Moreover, GPU’s advantage in both programmability and capability has make it popular not only be the graphics processor, but also a general purpose parallel processor accessible to any application [1]. This is known as general-purpose computing on graphics processing units (GPGPU). Today, GPU is integrated into today’s mainstream commercial computing systems. CUDA is introduced by NIVIDIA as a general purpose parallel computing architecture and enabled on its GeForce, Quadra, and Tesla products.
