Aloha, DDO!

Intro

This is this term's final Presidential Update. I wanted to just plug a few programs that are currently going on:

1. We're in need of tournament mods! If you would like to be a mod for a beginners' or regular tournament, please contact me or Airmax to apply. Thanks!

2. If you would like to be mentored as part of the New User Mentorship Program, please contact Zaradi [http://www.debate.org......]. If you'd like to volunteer as a mentor, you may also reach out to him directly.

3. To submit a topic for the Bi-Weekly Topics, please contact Tej [http://www.debate.org......].

4. And, as always, if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, feel free to contact me, Zaradi, or BV. We'd be happy to listen and help.

Updates

- We are asking for feedback on the usefulness and success of these Presidential Updates [http://www.debate.org...]. If you have a minute or two, please consider responding.
- We are vamping up our negotiations over the opt-in Voting Reform program, and, if reelected, we hope to announce more details in the coming weeks

Community Activities

- Chess Tournament: http://www.debate.org...
- Writing Contest: http://www.debate.org...
- The December Beginners' Tournament should be out shortly, too, so keep an eye peeled for that.

Trivia

Most people of aware of the Euro as a common, international currency (one shared by many nations), but are not aware of other currency unions. I want, here, to point out a few other formal currency unions with shared policies that exist in the world, though there are also some informal ones--did you know that the US dollar is the official currency of Ecuador, for example?).

But, anyway, here are the formal currency unions between full nations: West African Frank (Benin, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Mali, Guinea-Bissau, Niger, Senegal, Togo, Cameroon, CAR, Chad, Congo - Brazzaville, Equitoreal Guinea, Gabon); the East Caribbean Dollar (Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines); the South African Rand (Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland); and, of course, the Euro.

Just as a matter of monthly tradition for chastising the handling of these - does this even have a mod yet? I mean, this should get a sign-up *at least* a week before December 1st. So, what does "shortly" indicate?

It does, and it means 72 hours or less.

Solonkr~
I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

In essence, the world is fucked up and you can either ignore it, become cynical or bitter about it.
