  1. Blue key is at the end of the month at Gainesville, octas bid in pf, policy lost its bid two years ago but some 25-30 teams usually show up(prolly more this year bc of a large influx of novice teams in soflo) besides that, youre better off going to georgia tourneys, they have a pretty nice circuit
  2. Can someone please link me to some videos where the neg debated the K well and went for it in the 2nr? the aff preferably being trad
  3. http://www.cross-x.com/topic/53220-introduction-to-deleuze-and-thought/ http://www.cross-x.com/topic/46845-dng/ these might help a bit
  4. basically when something is controversial like a large bipartisan split on let's say HSR, and Obama manages to get it passed, Obama is perceived as a super awesome mega strong leader and so he is able to use that new found leverage on the next piece of legislation as ppl are more likely to side with someone as they percieve as a leader
  5. The permutation links to the net benefit thus it generates competition for the CP. For example, Aff is HSR there's only a warming advantage , Neg is a renewable energy CP and a Politics DA. The link to the Politics DA is "Transportation projects are unpopular". If the Aff permed, and said we should do both the cp and the plan, the link to the politics DA is still triggered because the plan is enacted, so in theory, the counterplan is competitive because you cant do both the plan and the counterplan while avoiding the netbenefit. The netbenefit can either be a DA, K, or Case turn
  6. thanks that was pretty helpful ill either go with carbon pipelines or port security
  7. So Im in charge of helping out novices and stuff and besides HSR, what do you guys think would be the best starter aff to give them?
  8. reverse voting issue; for example, "T is a RVI because it's a timeskew", its basically a reason to not only reject the arg but reject the team for bringing up such an uneducational and meaningless argument taking out/decreasing education/fairness, that being said, never run these types of args in policy
  9. Paper debaters do that too tho, a lot of times theyll only read one or two cards from a sheet of paper and not read one or more from that same page, it should be the debaters responsibility to flow the speech instead of relying on the provided speech doc/papers However, I do agree card marking is a legit issue
  10. paperless debaters should still flow on paper, most coaches agree
  11. Nietzsche, but warning, theyll be prepped for it
  12. i think the thunder still have the potential to beat a lakers team that included nash and now potentially howard, after all, statistically, bynum really wasnt much different
  13. They're prolly perfect for your needs but the speakers suck, like you cant hear anything, its THAT soft
  14. Read Nietzsche and embrace the inevitability of your suffering.
  15. You can find out your ranks in each round-not your overall tournament standing-http://nflonline.org/uploads/NFLOnline/2012%20Results.pdf Hogue, Taylor U 666764; U is your event(U for US extemp) and the numbers are your ranks in round order
  16. I dont know if this is true for other states but in Florida, policy teams don't generally go to CFL nats, we usually send just first time novices who auto qual Considering this is one of the only options for travel tournaments in Kansas, they probably send their best teams in good numbers
