  1. Hey homies, I recently upgraded to Word 2016 on Windows 10 and reinstalled Verbatim, but for some reason the debate template is not working any more?? Whenever I try to click within the window, the entire word doc freezes up and I have to close it and open it up again in order to get it to work. Regular word works perfectly, without an issue. Is this a known issue or is there anything else I can do to make it work again? I'm considering returning to Word 2013 if this issue persists.
  2. I was thinking of cutting my own orientalism K for next year's topic, any recommendations on what books to start with?
  3. The NYU CEDA team is very interested in identifying incoming first-years with extensive experience in public forum debate and policy debate. If you are a debater and wish to join an award-winning team with over 20 returning members, an extensive travel schedule and unique on-campus opportunities, contact us ASAP. We can be reached by FB message at https://www.facebook.com/nyuceda/ or you can email the PR Officer, Erin, at ems721@nyu.edu. We have 16 students in the Big Apple this summer already cutting cards, holding practice rounds, working with coaches and generating args on the new topic. Our first fall recruitment meeting will be Wednesday, September 7th, the same day as the NYU Club Fair, but we'd like to be in touch with promising stars beforehand, if possible.
  4. Hey guys! Here is a list of all the DAs on Open Evidence for community reference. If you have more or one I forgot let me know and I'll add it. Also, in the spirit of community, it'd be super chill if we could start a discussion about what some of the less obvious DAs are all about, some strategies to run against them, and maybe what our favorites are (Maybe that should be a separate poll)? I know that this will really help the novices, and it really is a useful resource to return to as the season kicks off.

  6. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2016/02/29/bernie-sanders-raises-38-million-february/81117908/ "He started his last-minute fundraising drive Monday morning, having already collected $36 million. By 7:58 p.m. Monday night, he had raised $40.7 million — meaning donors had showered him with more than $4 million in a single day." He has a chance!
