Is corporal punishment a method that is appropriate for institutions to use on minors and the disab?

Apex21
Coveny

Corporal punishment in schools and institutions is a disgrace to society. First of all, it is against international law to use excessive force on children. Corporal punishment is a form of child abuse. The only words in statue that separate corporal punishment and child abuse are the terms "excessive" and "extreme". This makes the border between the two an opinion and puts children at risk . Corporal punishment, also put states and the country at risk with liability . States have been sued for o...

Morality is indisputable.

Thank you for participating in this debate. I will be arguing in favor of the view that morality is indisputable. In order to qualify for this challenge, you must have completed at least 1 debate. (IFF) morality requires principles (AND) principles require truth (AND) truth requires fact (AND) fact requires indisputability (THEN) morality cannot be disputable. (IFF) morality is disputable then it does not logically qualify as morality per its own definition (and may be more precisely...

This film is not just a cheesy Hollywood movie. It shows the brutality of trying to get into showbusiness whilst using the Musical genre to progress its story line. I dare you to disagree....

Should the paparazzi be banned?

No not really, believe it or not most of these celebrities enjoy being in the spot light, they might not admit it, but once the paparazzi stop checking on them that pretty much determine their status in holly weird. Also I saw Lindsay Logan doing an interview about the paparazzi and she was saying how one time she didn't see them and was wondering where they were at. I'm pretty sure other celebrities think that way to. So the paparazzi may at times annoy them, but when they stop they start to wo...

jdwest9817

New medicines require testing because researchers must measure both the beneficial and the harmful effects of a compound on a whole organism. A medicine is initially tested in vitro using tissues and isolated organs, but legally and ethically it must also be tested in a suitable animal model before clinical trials in humans can take place. The animal tests provide data on efficacy and safety. They not only identify potential safety concerns, but also determine the doses which will be given to...

Gentrification in cities

asox44
LaL36

I believe that gentrification in cities is bad for the community and only drives the working class families out because it increases the cost of living. It solves no problems and only marginalizes people more than they already have been. Definitions gentrification-the change in the character of a traditionally working-class area following an influx of new middle-class residents. [1] (From what I have experienced this usually entails people coming from the suburbs with their money to newly "...

The city of Chicago being visible from the opposite shore, proves the earth is not a sphere.

Ramshutu2
Edlvsjd

One of Edlvsjd core arguments made in support of Flat earth (and against a spherical earth) is that the City of Chicago is visible from the opposite shore of Lake Michigan, something he states is not possible on a spherical earth, and effectively demonstrates that the earth is flat. This debate is Edlvsjd's opportunity to argue that this is the case. Rules: - As Edlvsjd is going to be supporting his claim, his FIRST round should be used for opening arguments; Edlvsjd should write "Last...
