  1. Has anyone ever been to a seven week camp? Plz share your experience because this will be my first time at umich 7 week. Ive been to camp before, but not this long.
  2. So this year I attended UTNIF 3 Weeks Skills Intensive and I really enjoyed it. From the people I met to how much better I got at debate. From my great experience and success in this season so far, I was wondering and already planning to attend a 7 week debate camp. The questions that I am most concerned with at the moment are: 1) What are the best 7 week debate camps and why? 2) What was your experience (if you went to it) and do you think it was worth it/how much better did you become? P.S. I already know that how much better you become is dependent on how seriously you take the camp as well as how much you actually work.
  3. Hello, I just started policy debate and the problem is my spreading is really bad. I came here from another country and started learning english at around 7 so I still carry an accent and when I spread it sounds really unclear. But a second problem is also that I keep getting stumped on words, I get what they mean and I can read it perfectly in my head but when its time to spread the cards I keep pausing and stuttering :[ This is preventing me from reading more cards and bringing in more arguments in my speeches, any tips to help me fix this? Thank you.
  4. Specifically, a card that shows will it WILL pass. And, maybe a card that shows why it will NOT pass, or why it would be undesirable for the BIT (in its current form) to pass. Thanks!
  5. Anybody have any good articles/cards talking about biopower in US CJS/Courts - jury nullification specifically.
  6. Any supplies besides the obvious (clothes labtop etc) that you regret not taking with you to Debate Camp? I leave Sunday morning at 3 AM for Weber State and am curious as to any last minute things I should buy.
  7. My alt is essentially an argument that the opponent is engaging in a bad act, and we need to do "X," I know its pretty straightforward, but I know people who add more nuance to this form of a K. Ive heard of justifications for why it needs to start in round, or maybe some ROB argument. Anyone have any ideas or braod cards that go with this type of alt?
  8. http://www.cnn.com/2015/05/07/politics/nsa-telephone-metadata-illegal-court/ Just throwin it out there for those who don't already know
  9. Which one do you prefer. Why? I honestly prefer paperless.

  11. I finished writing a new affirmative that i'm very excited about. it's a Baudrillard Aff, and i have a tournament in the morning that i'm going to break it at. My issue is that i don't want people saving my hours of hard work and next tournament me get destroyed every round because of it. how do i save a document as a flash drive version so that it can't be saved onto their laptops? i've seen other teams do it, but i can't find it online.
  12. Post your predictions on state winners in cx 1a-Lometa 2a-Cross roads 3a-Whitesboro 4a-(?) 5a- Lindale 6a-Hendrickson
  13. So im on the waitlist for the Golden Desert Debate Invitational and if i get off of the waiting list i have to supply my own judge. So I was wondering whether anyone in the Nevada area would be interested in judging policy debate at the invitational. If so, please contact me at haran.kushal@gmail.com and we can discuss the price over email.
  14. Hello, my name is Allen Easley, and I suck at my 2N overviews. I find them being ineffective and a time suck to my speech. If you have any general tip for the construct of my overviews that would be fantabular. Also, If you have any general tips that would be radical. Thanks y'all. *Notice the non-gendered usage of y'all? Yep, I am not sexist at all.
  15. I was wondering if anyone had a working link/doc to the transcript for this? I had a dropbox link some time ago but it no longer works. "Irvine RR Conference - Discussion with Frank B. Wilderson III"
  16. First, I am wondering how the neg would respond to the aff trying to perm the alt? I.E aff runs arguments that very clearly relate to capatalism but perms the alt that socialism is the answer OR, and more to my inquiry, if the neg runs a k on the langauge/framing the aff uses as morally bad and the aff either perms and says "aff will just adopt alt/fix language/paradigm." I see this as kinda unfair bc it isnt like a perm to a cp; it is literally the aff realzing they lost on the k and using their own concession as a way to dismiss the k. Also, can the neg run a ROB in the 1nc? Seems kinda abusive, bc the aff never gets real chance to engage?
  17. I found this just a little wile ago, kind of hard to describe but basicaly its a google search tool (it has google dorks coded into it if you know what those are). Basicaly makes finiding what you need a whole lot easier, hope you enjoy http://googlehelper.4shared.com
  18. What is the general range of speaker points at big-stick national tournaments like Greenhill and Glenbrooks. I understand speaks vary depending on the (level of difficulty of the) tournament, but is there an accepted range that judges follow? Note: This is specific to national tournaments, I know basic stuff like thirties don't happen and a twenty-five means you're a terrible person/ debater; 29 is pretty high/ really good, 29.5 is excellent/ not much you can change; just curious as to other debaters' experiences. Also, why are none of the useful, unanswered questioned asked on this site :/ Get rid of flood control on the search bar and half the questions disappear because they've been asked before...

  20. Anyone know where I can find the Team List for the 2015 Glenbrooks tournament? Am I able to access it from Joy of Tournaments?
  21. Hey there! I'm one of the few hundred people who got waitlisted at Cal Invitational. I was thinking for those of you who were still going to be in the area or on campus, it might be fun to do some rounds in areas on campus. After all, debate is more about education and learning than anything else, right? Let me know if any of you would like to debate!
  22. I need serious help for some DA Ground. All i need is an Idea for a DA for the topic: Placing Political Conditions on Humanitarian Aid to Foreign Countries Unjust
