  1. I am available to judge NFL Nationals. I can handle lodging and
  2. Hfrffuytffff
  3. I'm Lawrence Chang. I go to UCLA, but somehow I can judge this tournament and handle lodging and transportation. I have judged a lot of debates this year in SoCal. lawlruschang@gmail.com
  4. most other activities such as basketball and football only allow a small percentage of the population to compete in the first place. the average person can't make a high school varsity athletic team. debate is already more open to competitors because anyone can join. what you're asking is the equivalent of saying a star point guard needs to run slower so that less skilled or talented opponents have a chance to compete. that destroys the nature of competition
  5. Hello, My name is Lawrence Chang. I am an entering freshman studying Economics at UCLA and am interested in getting involved in debate in the Los Angeles area, whether it be coaching or judging, employment or volunteer work. I had a relatively successful debate career competing for Clear Lake High School, a small program in Houston, Texas. I cleared at Grapevine, UT, Houston Memorial, the Texas Forensics Association state tournament, and the Texas University Interscholastic League state tournament. I have judged at a few small tournaments in the Houston area, and have a great deal of experience training younger debaters and novices who were on my own team. I have successfully debated every argument type on both sides: topicality, theory, disadvantages, counterplans, kritiks, framework, and case arguments. I am prepared to work with strategies that focus on any single argument, or a set of arguments, or all of them. In terms of research, my strong point is affirmative construction. For programs which focus on the stylistic presentation of arguments, I am also well-qualified to assist. My partner and I reached the semifinals of the Texas UIL tournament, widely known to have a heavy focus on conversation-speed delivery of arguments. As of now, I have no private means of transportation, but I am willing to use public transportation to work with programs as long as the trip is not too far. If anyone has contact information for a program in the Los Angeles area which may be interested in hiring an assistant coach or is financially-strapped and looking for a volunteer assistant, I would appreciate that as well. The only specific program in the LA area I have found which has a debate team is Loyola High School, though I have no knowledge of the team's situation, wants or needs, or contact information. Any information regarding the Loyola HS program would be appreciated as well. Thanks, -Lawrence lawlruschang@gmail.com AIM: lawlruschang

  7. this is all fucking stupid
  8. lol cross-x fail but yeah, i've always wondered how people are supposed to answer questions like "who is X?" how does one define someone else's identity?
  9. Please post cites on the wiki or email them to lawlruschang@gmail.com Thanks
  10. Funny, considering teams win on condo bad pretty often, and usually the only 5-minute condo speech is the 2ar... It's not really "kicking case." You're just saying condo is bad which is a reason the neg should lose. I don't see why judges would reflexively vote neg because of that..? They will probably hold the 2ar to the 1ar and discount new arguments, perhaps that's what you're getting at.
