    Comments: Byron, cool that you participated. Having not many to compare it with I believe you could improve by looking at where your statements are based on assumptions or generalize. Also it needs more depth if one questions the behavior of another culture and more of a convincing argument why its acceptable to question behavior of another culture. Waverly, first great that you took place in such event. Now the main issue was that you used twice the same video. Now I am not sure whether that was a mistake or not but this means that you did not really respond to your opponents response to you.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Byron Ruano

    Reason for Decision:

    Main reason for my decision is that Byron's delivery was better and that Waverly seemed to have uploaded twice the same video (not sure whether that was a mistake).
