  1. This will be my last announcement as an administrator for Cross-x.com. I am moving on in my career and don't have the time necessary to devote to my role within the site for next season. User David who has long run the site with me (and frankly is the one who actually keeps the site running) will be taking over as sole admin. For those of you who have contacted me to resolve issues you should know that I will no longer be able to assist you with such issues in the future.. Click here to view the article
  2. This weeks Thursday (or Saturday rather) file includes THREE disadvantages for NFL Nationals. In addition to updates to the GOP and Dems DA's for midterms, there is a brand new Highway Trust Fund DA that is perfect NFL. The Highway Trust Fund will be out of money by August and 700,000 people will be out of jobs. The Disad says that Congress will reach a bipartisan deal to keep infrastructure projects funded and that these projects are vital to competitiveness and economic growth. The plan would disrupt this bipartisan compromise because it is unpopular in Congress etc etc. In the wake of Eric Cantor's surprising defeat in his Virginia primary, this weeks file also includes updates in the world of midterms. Finally, the file includes answers to any possible agenda disadvantage you could possible debate this weekend. Enjoy! Find out more about the file and author below http://www.cross-x.c...-thursday-file/This week's file was authored by Chris Carey, a sophomore debate at the University of Kansas. As a college debate, Chris has participated in the outrounds of CEDA, UMKC, and several other tournaments.

  7. This Thursday file includes a whole new scenario on the Middle East Peace Process as well as an Immigration Reform DA. In addition, it includes updates on patent reform, minimum wage, tpp, and nsa.

  9. College won't finalize the actual resolution until July. The general topic area is selected in May. In June a list of possible resolutions is released. After June you can generally begin to do research, but you have to be careful because the resolution vary widely. College teams mostly focus on hosting high school camps in June-July or instructing at camps, and most teams get back together sometime in August to really start working on the topic.
  10. President Obama has made it clear in speeches this week that he is doubling down on pushing minimum wage reform. He is pushing on all fronts, if he can't get a higher hourly wage he is pushing for rule changes and using his rhetoric to try and expand the conversation. This week's file focuses on this scenario while updating some continuing scenario. Find out more about the author and file below. http://www.cross-x.c...sday-file-3-13/It's a bit of a slow week in politics, but that won't stop cross-x from bringing you the best politics stuff out there. This weeks scenario is minimum wage hike, which is being pushed by Obama and fellow dems. It includes econ and poverty impacts, with a few extra turns case goodies. We also have updated the UQ for Iran sanctions, and CIR, as well as giving you a litany of aff answers. This week's file was authored by Luke Hartman and Kyle Klucas , two debaters at k-state, who collectively have attended a number of national level tournaments, and assist in coaching local Kansas debate.

    New Subforum

    I think the more appropriate response would be to petition the moderator of the Evidence trading forum to pin a thread where just the links are aggregated. I simple pinned thread rather than a whole subforum seems more appropriate for this request.
  12. This week's Thursday File brings back the Iran Sanctions DA. The GOP has restarted a push in the Senate since most of the other major controversial bills have been taken off the table.

  13. There is the Wyoming Debate Institute which has always been good. I think the three week option at SDI at Michigan state has always had good value and drawn some Colorado kids. Gonzaga also is very cheap and has a range of programs, and a lot of the really good western teams go there. For driving distance the options are probably Wyoming, UNT (12 hours), Kansas (8 hours), UMKC (9 hours).
  14. I would highly recommend the camp, I've worked with their director Brian DeLong as a lab leader and briefly as a teammate. Especially if you might be interested in IU it is a no brainer. I think the only reason this camp doesn't have more 'rep' yet is that the program is relatively young, but the people in charge know what they are doing and have run successful labs in other camps for a long time before starting this one.

  19. Politics for this week is a bit murky, mostly from a STOU that focused on executive orders rather than legislation. This week's file includes Trade Promotion Authority as the primary DA. TPA is still possible, but Obama didn't do himself any favors by barely mentioning fast track in his SOTU speech, thus the uniqueness is not as strong as it was last week. While strong arguments against passage of TPA, especially since Harry Ried came out against the legislation yesterday. Find out more about the file and author below: http://www.cross-x.c...6-donny-peters/Immigration remains a strong option and there is momentum to pass. Although Obama didn't provide much support in the STOU address,, the House Republicans realize that passing some kind of immigration reform may be necessary for midterm elections. You should look out as to what happens later today regarding the House Republican's announcement regarding their immigration objectives. This may have an impact on the DA's uniqueness. Iran is possible, but the uniqueness evidence may be too good. There doesn't seem to be much hope for a vote to happen. Other possibilities including Debt Ceiling and Minimum wage are included, but do not seem to be viable possibilities for this week.
