    Maslow K 1nc

    I got a 1NC K shell based off of Maslow's hierarchy of needs, and discusses how diplomatic endeavors shouldn't be prioritized but rather we can't reach that stage without solving for poverty. Needs extension. Willing to trade for anything to do w/ china.
  3. Binghamton University has announced its 2nd annual online debate tournament. All the details, including how to register, can be found on the website at- http://speechdebate.binghamton.edu/Tournaments/7/Home/binghamton-university-s-2nd-annual-online-debate-tournament/ Last year the tournament featured 100 competitors from around the United States in both high school and college. This year entries are open to any enrolled high school or undergraduate in the world. Prizes include Amazon gift cards, books, hoodies, t-shirts, and more. Registration is free and instructors are encouraged to sign up as judges. This year's resolution is: RESOLVED: The United Nations should adopt a resolution decrying or demanding an end to the annual dolphin hunt in Taiji, Japan. The tournament is already sponsored by PETA2, The Institute for Critical Animal Studies, and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. The website also features many national videos of college debate rounds if you click "Videos" on the top navigation bar and follow the links to "Live Policy Debate." We're trying to grow a collection of speech videos as well.

    Be a part new debate documentary!

    Hi, this is the director and producer of the film We Affirm! We Affirm is a new and upcoming documentary about the world of high school debate. We created this film with the intention to educate those not in the debate community about what exactly it is that we do and why we are so passionate about it. We also want this to be a film for debaters by debaters, which is where you guys come in! We want to be able to have debaters from all across the nation and globe to a part of this film. One of the biggest aspects of this film is focusing on the voice of debaters and letting them share how debate has affected their lives. If you would like to be a part of this, then just create a video and send it to weaffirmdoc@gmail.com . The video does not have to be anything fancy and can really just be shot on your webcam. All you need to do is say your name and where you are from and then answer the following questions: Why did you join debate? After joining, why have you chosen to stick around? How has debate impacted or changed your life? We look forward to working with all of you and hope to hear back from you all soon! If you would like to learn more about us you can check out our Indie Go Go page, too. igg.me/at/we-affirm-debate-documentary

    Mavericking For Texas Tfa State

    Long story short, my partner failed his french class with a 0 because he didn't do any work and now he's not eligible for Texas TFA state competition. I'm considering to maverick there and I'm wondering if there are any tricks and tips on mavericking. I'm also wondering if mavericking is an option or not for Texas TFA state because it didn't specify on the website.

  11. I was wondering if anybody could point me in the direction of some evidence saying that policy debate enforces Utopian rhetoric and practices. Also, if anybody knows where I could find some impacts for utopia bad that would be amazing. Thanks

    Need to improve my 2N overviews

    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.

    Spreading Tips?

    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.

    Horrible arguments

    This could actually happen. I apologize in advance. "Development and/or Exploration" implies you have to at least explore. You either explore or you Develop AND Explore Earth is One Ocean, the resolution says oceans, the resolution is flawed. USFG is Military. Resolution is flawed. The Earth does not own the oceans, people do Resolution is flawed. Consult Poseidon CP Please Add to this list. And Please never run these arguments.

    7 week debate camps

    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.

    Answering Crip Poetics/Ableism Kritiks

    I usually read affs centered on identity politics, and am trying to prep answers to Crip Poetics/Ableism but am not sure what kinds of arguements are effective. The only concrete answer I have is 1 card that warrants a perm (doing the advocacy in the mindset of the alt), but it isn't the best of cards/args College Prep is one I've noticed, but there are definitely more teams reading this kritik/performance http://hspolicy.debatecoaches.org/College+Prep/Harper-Sessions+Neg Cards would be good too, or just args

    LD- Berkeley

    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!

    Glenbrooks 2015 Team List

    Anyone know where I can find the Team List for the 2015 Glenbrooks tournament? Am I able to access it from Joy of Tournaments?
  25. Hello, Ive been debating for a year in the Oregon/ a little Washington circuit. A lot of the people who win the Washington bid tourney's run Util stuff, so I'm planning on joining the party. I was wondering if people had some solid Util justification, evidence, and tips on how to respond to the common Util refutations. I don't have much of value to give back to you, I'm sorry, I'm kinda new in the progressive theme. Anyways, pm me or post it here, thank you and have a nice day.
