|Comments:||Your first video being private really hurts you.
Sure, your article postdates hers, but it is talking about something that happened in 1903.
You should argue that sugary drinks can be banned in addition to having health education, and give reasons why doing both of these things together would be the best option.
|I liked how you used your water bottle as a prop.
Nice argument about Pouring Rights. It sounds absolutely evil, but it is a reason why not only banning sugary drinks is "not good", but also why it is bad.
You had good reasons why the negative effects of pouring rights were highly irrelevant.
Your video was really shaky. I'm fairly certain that this is because you used YouTube's enhancement tool.
The decision is for the Opposition: Elizabeth Jean
Reason for Decision:
The opposition wins that pouring rights contracts have benefits and that health education is a better way of addressing obesity. She also wins several reasons why the plan would not be able to solve for obesity alone.
