    Use of evidence: 3.7 1.5
    Delivery skill: 4 2.5
    Coherence of arguments: 4.5 4.5
    Responsiveness to opponent: 4.3 2.7
    Identification of key points: 4 3.6
    Comments: You should use more voice inflections instead of talking in such a monotone voice. Good specifications of what your plan would do, proscribe, and how it would be funded.

    Good job at responding to your opponents arguments with evidence. I would try to make them look more qualified instead of just the URL.

    Speak louder.
    You need to use all your speaking time, especially in a format where you only get two speeches. No citations provided isn't great. If you're going to have problems entering your cites you should be clearer about them in your speech. You need evidence for your economy arguments.

    Not using all your time in your second speech is devastating in this format. Almost no way you can win when the prop speaks anywhere close to you time-wise in your last speeches. Always use the format of the activity in your favor.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Paul H. Lim

    Reason for Decision:

    I vote for the proposition since he effectively answers the opp's arguments in order. I think the prop better impacts out his argument for why the dolphin hunt is cruel than the opp does in defending the cultural rights of Japan. The prop also does a better job at providing evidence to back up his points concerning culture.


    Sorry for not replying soon, Thank you very much Clay for a wonderful debate, I wish you luck in future debates. And thank you Joe for judging this great round. - Paul H. Lim on May 6, 2014 at 01:13AM EST
