Wiv care an' pains the knack is easy cort;

In workin' points, an' thinks it bonzer sport
To trifle with a wife's belief, so long

It 'urts to be accused uv base designs.

Vertex Nomination via Content and Context
For kernel-based algorithms, which are widely used in machine learning, the features are provided intrinsically in a high-dimensional space via the choice of a positive-definite symmetric kernel function (Boser et al., 1992; Cortes and Vapnik, 1995; Vapnik, 1998).
