    Use of evidence: 3.2 2.4
    Delivery skill: 4 5
    Coherence of arguments: 4.5 4.5
    Responsiveness to opponent: 4 4
    Identification of key points: 4.2 4.5
    Comments: You should start with a clear definition of what you mean by "ethical" so you can relate the impacts you talk about back with the resolution.

    A lot of your responses to the opp's arguments are that other things can solve the problem (different farming mechanisms, etc). You should weigh your impacts more directly against your opponent's impacts.
    Good job at defining the key point at the onset of your speech in order to identify why the prop doesn't affirm the resolution. I like how you use it on a subsitive level instead of making it into a procedural thing. You should provide citations so your information can be looked up.

    More clearly extend your interpretation of the resolution and ethics.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Reva Agashe

    Reason for Decision:

    I vote for the opposition because the proposition's final speech was too much defense going over reasons for why you don't lose instead of why you win. Instead of just rattling off reasons for why the opp isn't perfect and things the opp did wrong (new arguments) you need to spend more time explaining why you won the round and extending your offense. The prop all but drops his initial points about animal rights, which gives me very little to weigh against the pesticides argument. Both sides could do a better job defining what is ethical and framing their argument in relation to the resolution.


    Thanks to the author for this information, I think all Nintendo fans will appreciate it. I also want to add that according to Bloomberg, the updated NVIDIA Tegra in Switch will offer a more powerful processor module and an improved graphics subsystem with DLSS support, thanks to which it will be possible to play games on TV in 4K quality. The console should also get a larger 7-inch OLED display from Samsung and more internal storage. I gathered this information from streams on twitch in which developers share news about different consoles. I saw more than a hundred streams of similar content there and noticed that most often they were published by accounts to which about 36 thousand subscribers were subscribed! I am sure this is because their owners have repeatedly used the services of to quickly increase the number of subscribers. - Leonard Rivera on May 8, 2021 at 07:18PM EST

    I think we can't compare the two ends. Being a vegetarian and being a meat lover are two different things. And, after all, we are trying to make this world a better place to live by providing freedom of choice, right? So like, I belong to the group of online best dissertation writers, and I believe that meat-eating is a freedom of choice just like other choices. Don’t come at me, just wanted to state facts! - jamaimacyrus on April 23, 2021 at 05:37AM EST
    There is a huge debate on this topic and still, I don't why this is even a debate. As I'm an academic writer, recently I have made a report on this topic for my student because I provide western Sydney university assignment help and also in other universities of Australia. - Jessie Rose on April 21, 2021 at 06:38AM EST
    I do also support this statement. Become a vegetarian has a lot of benefits, it may reduce cancer risk. The latest research from the professional academic writers shows that the vegetarian may be up to one-third less likely to be hospitalized for heart disease. - Elma Davis on April 16, 2021 at 03:38AM EST
    I completely resolved my question when I read this post, thanks to the author for the very detailed description. I wrote my review on the brill assignment , you can go in and read. Thank you very much for your attention in your time. - Tomas Andrious on March 27, 2021 at 04:54AM EST
