Round one is acceptance. Round two is opening. Round three is rebuttal. Round four is conclusion. Round five is sources. Definitions: Ancient: predating the Egyptians Modern: having technology thought to be from a later period....

Cold Weather vs. Hot Weather

Yonko

I thought this might be a fun debate to do, given that my favorite season of the year (winter) is approaching. I affirm that on balance, cold weather is preferable to hot weather. Burden of proof is shared, so Con negates the resolution by affirming the opposite -- that hot weather is preferable to cold weather. The debate is impossible to accept. Accepting without permission will result in an automatic loss for Con. Apply in the comments section if interested. Cold weather is defin...

"It's not your fault when you were born poor but when you died poor" Does this statement says a wrong idea or somehow inappropriately stated or constructed? To my judgement, this can be considered as okay but some of my fellows insist it's wrong and it's should be "It's not your fault when you were born poor but it's when you died poor". My statement here put the omitting into consideration which I believe express the same idea to the other. Let me hear yours....

debate-master1

Homework should only be given once or twice a week because students have seven hours of school every day for five days a week. Homework given almost everyday for 5-6 subjects is reasonably pressurizing for students. Having homework once a week will help keep a balance in students lives. Especially for students who have sports, extra curricular activities, and other things that take up hours of a student's day,...
