I don't think you should have to make 3 debates to be able to vote. This is sort of restricting who can and can't vote. I understand that only people who like to debate will vote and this will deter trolls, but 3 is too much and I believe it should be shortened....

This is going to be a simple Pro Nuclear Energy vs Con Nuclear Energy. No specific resolution, just the broad subject of using nuclear energy.

For example, Con can focus on negative effects to the environment, safety issues, or better alternatives rendering Nuclear obsolete, but Con cannot just disagree with everything Pro puts up (and vise versa). I will go ahead...

Samsung was aiming to make faster, cheaper and better smart phones against iPhone. Apple saw the challenge and planned to change. However Apple lunched low price phones which are not as low as we expected. Moreover, low price strategy is not a smart idea to win the market share.

Sircam22

Although schools have traditionally banned or limited cell phones in the classroom, 73% of Advanced Placement and National Writing Project teachers said their students use phones in the classroom or to complete assignments, according to a Pew Research Center study released in February. I think that students should be allowed to use phones in not only school but in the classroom. I also think that the pros out number the cons by a long shot....
