So guys, I am finishing my first novice year, and want to know if anyone can relate.

My record was this through all of my tournaments I went to.

3-1

4-1

1-3

1-1-2 (2 ties fml)

3-1

 

The tournaments where I go 3-1, 4-1,3-1 I have a partner who I boss around. control. The other 2 where I went 1-3, 1-1-2. I had a partner who was really good. Does anyone else do really well when they have a partner they can control?

 

Also, what exactly is next years topic on education?

 

 

and, should I move to varsity?

No, stay in novice all four years of your debate career. By senior year it will be like playing chess against a toddler.

Maybe I've been out of the activity for a while, but how do you tie in a debate?

Round robin - 2 ballots, 1 votes Aff, 1 votes neg? I'm guessing

DOUBLE BIND- Either the harms of the aff are true and they can't solve until they control the levers of power OR the harms are constructed and you reject them for alarmism

First thing, you should not have that kind of relationship with your partner. One partner should specialize in the aff (the 2a) and the other should specialize in the neg (the 2n). When the 2a asks the 1a "can you please extend x y and z in the 1ar because i wanna go for those", the 1a typically should do it. And vice versa for whatever the 2n wants to see happen in the block.

 

Past that, there should be no "control". You're a team. Your prep and ultimately your success comes from a collaborative effort. You can't and shouldn't be calling all the shots. It may work in novice but don't get used to that. You need your partner and you need them to be just as involved in things as you are.

 

Next year's topic is "Resolved: The United States federal government should substantially increase its funding and/or regulation of elementary and/or secondary education in the United States". No one really knows what the major arguments are gonna be. Right now most people anticipate a very k-slanted year, with shallow policy neg ground like the federalism DA and states CP. In terms of affs, people have been throwing around ideas: STEM education, special needs education, stuff like that, but no one really knows how it will play out

 

and yeah, as baudrillbabe said you'll have to move to varsity eventually. At least in my experience, the difference between novice and varsity is like night and day, so if you've got the basics down, you're better off making the switch sooner rather than later

were they invitation only like a normal round robin?

 

That seems kind of pointless-- inviting the best novices in the country to compete against each other. Like just put them in varsity

Idk if it was invitation or not, but I agree that it was pointless- but then again most round robins are to a degree

having a reliable partner is really important cuz you can't do everything yourself, otherwise you should just do LD or something.

Can confirm, this is why I'm now in LD.

WHO ON HELL IS THIS FUCK BAUDRILLARD? BALSAS 06 [BALSAS is an interdisciplinary journal on media culture.  Interview with Art Group BBM, “on first cyborgs, aliens and other sides of new technologies,” translated from lithiuanian http://www.balsas.cc/modules.php?name=News&file=print&sid=151] JCH-PF

Valentinas: We all know that Jean Baudrillard did not believe that the Gulf War did take place, as it was over-mediated and over-simulated. In fact, the Gulf War II is still not over, and Iraq became much more than just a Frankenstein laboratory for the new media, technology and “democracy” games. What can we learn from wars that do not take place, even though they cannot be finished? Are they becoming a symptom of our times as a confrontation between multiple time-lines, ideologies and technologies in a single place? Lars: Actually, it has always been the same: new wars have been better test-beds for the state of art technologies and the latest computer-controlled firearms. The World War I already was a fully mechanized war where pre-robots were fighting each other and gassing the troops. And afterwards, the winners shape the new world order. Olaf: Who on hell is Baudrillard? The one who earns money by publishing his prognoses after the things happen? What a fuck, French philosophy deals too much with luxury problems and elegantly ignores the problem itself. It’s no wonder, this is the colonizer’s mentality, you can hear it roaring in their words: they use phrases made to camouflage genocide. I went to see that Virilio’s exhibition "Ce qui arrive" at Foundation Cartier in 2003. I was smashed by that banal presentation of the evil of all kinds: again, natural catastrophes and evil done by man were exposed on the same wall, glued together with a piece of "theory". There you find it all, filed up in one row: the pure luxury of the Cartier-funded Jean Nouvel building, an artwork without any blood in its veins, and that late Christian philosophy about the techno-cataclysm being the revenge of God. Pure shit, turned into gold in the holy cellars of the modern alchemists’ museums. The artist-made video "documents" of the Manhattan towers opposed to Iraqian war pictures: that’s not Armageddon, that’s man-invented war technology to be used to subdue others. And there is always somebody who pushes the buttons, even when the button is a computer mouse some ten thousand kilometers away from the place where people die, or even if it is a civil airplanes redirected by Islamists. Everybody knows that. War technology has always been made to make killing easier. And to produce martyrs as well. Janneke: Compare Baudrillard with Henry Dunant, the founder of the International Committee of the Red Cross. Dunant was no philosopher, he was just an intelligent rich man in the late 19th century. But his ideas went far more in the direction where you should hope to find philosophers as well. He experienced war as a "randonneur": he passed by, he saw the suffering and the inhumanity of war. And he felt obliged to act. Apart from the maybe 10 days he spent on the battlefield, on the beautiful meadows in the Europeans Alps, helping wounded people to survive, as a complete medical layman he decided to do something more sustainable against these odds. He knew that his efforts couldn’t prevent war in general, but he felt that he could alter the cruelty of reality. And he succeeded in doing it. No wonder that in our days we find the most engaged people to support the TROIA projects intention in Geneva, where they are still based. And they are not only doing their necessary surgeon’s work in the field: they are as well fighting with the same energy on the diplomatic battlefield.
