It is simply pragmatic to restrict migration, while at the same time encouraging integration and fighting discrimination. We support the idea of the free movement of goods, people, money and jobs.
Protocol having been established, good afternoon.
Honourable members of the head table, many nations worry about ethnic conflicts within societies spilling over to other societies. Our environment is conducive to the maintenance of the legal framework that fosters social integration of legally admitted immigrants. Despite the political unrest that we face today, Venezuela can still be considered a country where migrants can be made to feel welcome.
Our primary concern is to protect and serve!
Ladies and gentlemen, each individual needs to feel a sense of belonging. Many receive a “YOU DON’T BELONG HERE” impression. In Venezuela no one is labeled ‘alien’.
Mr. President, we concede that we have a serious problem on our hands, but it has not reached the magnitude and intensity as Honduras in 2001, Syria in 2013, and the prevailing chaos that exist in Ukraine. For it is in situations such as those where “unconstitutional interruption” is quite evident! Show me a country that doesn’t have a problem, and I’ll show you a handsome monkey!
The social unrest that has developed in Venezuela, is being dwarfed by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, the cryptic disappearance of Malaysia Airline MH370, the mudslide in Washington and the 8.2 earthquake in Chile.
This in itself shows that there is absolutely no need for our country to be placed under heavy scrutiny. Thus, the litmus test for democracy and governance, is just that. For even the Organization of American States (OAS) seems hesitant to intervene, because there is no “unconstitutional interruption” of democracy.
Distinguished delegates, democracy must be based on the particular conditions of each society, but also on…...

Lo que no rellenen las palabras, que lo completen las pausas. Nunca hables demasiado rápido. Si tiendes a hacerlo, inserta micropausas después de cada frase (0,5 – 1 segundos).

...Debate The technique of persuasive argument is a skill that you must acquire in order to participate in a successful debate. The art of being eloquent, choosing your words wisely, and being able to think on your feet, encompasses many of the components that any debater should be able to handle. In our first debate last week, we got off to a bit of an awkward, slow start. A few of us were confused on the format, when to speak, and what to say next. After several people went up and read their paper, it was time for rebuttals. Certain people had no problem getting up in front of the class, and vehemently stating their position on the topic at hand. Once we were able to rebuttal with more ease, the debate went on a little more smoothly. In the middle of the debate, people didn’t want to end the argument as early as we did. We began to think more critically, coming up with better counterarguments and ideas. Considering this was our first debate, I would have to give it a six out of ten. Both teams were strong in some areas, and weak in others. Over time we will become stronger debaters and be able to develop and hone our skills. As we use the middle school format more often, we will become use to it and be prepared with a closing speech from both sides and a stronger opening argument. As captain for the first time and for the rest fo the class, we will be able to strategically plan who will speak next in the middle of the debate. We can send up our stronger members for some......

The Debate

...Ayah Awwad October 27th 2014 6579051 The debate Last week, my English teacher gave us topics to debate on in class. My partner and I chose to debate on whether university courses should have a pass/fail grading system. I was against this proposal, and my partner was for it. As we got up to debate, I heard my classmates whispering that they wish our university had a pass/fail grading system. Consequently, I felt the pressure of convincing my peers about my point of view by coming up with great convincing arguments. My partner, Sarah started the debate by saying “I wish our university use the pass/fail grading system. It would be so much easier for us to actually pass in school without having to worry about our GPA, or if we got an A or a B. I stood there thinking of how to defend my argument then, I said: “Well Sarah, I do not really think you understand the meaning of University. It is not only about passing the course; it is about understanding what you are studying, because that will be your career. In addition, students who are in universities that include the pass/fail grading system do not put much effort on the course, because they only need to pass. For example, while a student is writing his exam, he......

NAME: NWAKILE CHILOTAM MADELEINE CLASS: SS 202 SUBJECT: ENGLISH LANGUAGE TOPIC: YOU ARE A SPEAKER IN A DEBATE ON THE TOPIC DEMOCRACY IS THE BEST SYSTEM OF GORVERMENT FOR AFRICA. WRITE YOUR SPEECH FOR OR AGAINST IT. DATE: 9TH JANUARY, 2015. DEBATE: DEMOCRACY IS THE BEST SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT FOR AFRICA Good day the Honourable Moderator, Impartial Panel of Judges, Accurate Timekeeper, Co-debaters, My Fellow Students, Ladies and Gentlemen. I am Nwakile Chilotam. I am here to propose the motion which states that “Democracy is the best system of government for Africa”. Before I go on, I will like to give a simple definition of the word, “Democracy”. Democracy is a governmental term which according to late Abraham Lincoln means “the government of the people, by the people and for the people. In other words it is a government where everyone has an equal right to choose their leaders. There is no doubt that democracy is the best system of government not only for Africa but for the whole world at large. I am going to prove this with the following points. Democratic governance involves election of leaders, freedom of speech, freedom of press, accountability, rule of law, equal justice among others and all these are bought about by the power given to the people. It gives people the power to choose who represents them. Democracy gives the citizens of Africa the chance to get involved in governance and in......

...Team Debate Paper Team c BCOM/275 June 10, 2013 Rebecca B. Team Debate Paper The second amendment provides that “a well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” In short this is a right for civilians to bear arms. This amendment within a group of amendments was written in 1787. When it was drafted as an amendment it was done with the best intentions but lately in today’s society there is a growing argument that begs the questions to revisit this amendment. Everything from a caliber of a weapon to gun laws to background checks has changed drastically, but so have the laws. Some say the laws are fine the way they are, while others say the laws need to be changed. The Pros of Stricter Laws Against Re-selling of Guns and Trafficking Since the resent tragedies involving guns violence continues to increase in the United States, stricter laws against the reselling and trafficking of guns has been a major controversy. One topic up for discussion is whether the trafficking of guns through gun shows and gun dealers can assist in the decrease of gun violence. Bearing arms is the right of the people and to take away guns conflict with these laws. Instead of focusing on banning guns completely, the government should focus on stricter laws regarding the loop holes within the gun shows and the process of purchasing guns from gun dealers. According to “Coalition To Stop Gun......

Debate Speech Climate Change Ireland

...Ireland commitment to tackle Climate change doesn’t just happen in Ireland. To follow up on what Aaron said Ireland has done plenty to help those in the Developing world tackle climate change. Our overwhelming support to the developing world illustrates the fact that Ireland knows climate change is massively exacerbated in the developing world. No matter how much we make Ireland echo friendly it cannot compete with other countries on the Co2 emission scale, as it is a small country. But we have a duty to set an example for other countries that have a massive impact on climate change. Not only that, but most importantly we must help developing countries who cannot prevent themselves from having a big impact on climate change. Deforestation is a contributor to climate change and is often cited as one of the major causes of the enhanced greenhouse effect. Tropical deforestation is responsible for approximately 20% of world greenhouse gas emissions. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change deforestation, mainly in tropical areas, could account for up to one-third of total anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions. Out the top 10 most endangered forests, characterized by having all lost 90% or more of their original habitat, 3 are in developing areas of Africa, another 3 are in developing areas in south east Asia and The Atlantic forest is located along Brazil's Atlantic coast, extends to parts of Paraguay, Argentina and Uruguay.

...should Be Used for Medical Experiments Without Consent. In this debate, I will define “prisoners” as those who are sentenced to the death penalty in the United States. The “medical experiments” are limited exclusively for the purpose of the development of vaccines and cures for pandemic diseases (example is the Measles vaccine or Tuberculosis vaccine which saved millions of human lives). Under our definition, this House should allow medical experiments on prisoners without consent under the supervision of U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. Prisoners who are sentenced to death should have without consent, under the supervision of U.S. Department of Health & Human Services to have medical experiments conducted. It is realized that most medical experiments are cruel, so why not scope medical experiments for vaccine development only, and only when facing the threat of a pandemic outbreak. I will begin with a rebuttal showing how some thoughts and arguments Rebuttal #1: There is a clear distinction made between the rights of an innocent citizen and convicts sentenced to the death penalty. Political rights include: * Natural justice (procedural fairness) in law (such as the rights of the accused, including the right to a fair trial; due process; the right to seek redress or a legal remedy) * Individual political freedom, including rights of individuals (freedom of thought and conscience, freedom of speech and expression, freedom of religion, freedom of the......

...Accepting differences in people leads to harmonious relationship Mediator: Good afternoon to all of you. We are all the products of our own individual upbringing and experiences so it is completely natural that we will all have differences in opinions on a wide range of issues. So we are here now to witness a debate with a topic of accepting differences in people leads to harmonious relationship. In my right side are the pro we have Joana, Maria Nicole and xyrah. In my left side are the against we have Ronin, Christopher and clarries. So let’s get started. Pro: (xyrah) Accepting differences in people leads to harmonious relationship definitely because as we accept that we are different from each other we are starting to build up a good relationship with others. Well a good relationship can lead great ideas, creativity and achievement. Against: (clarries) I have nothing against your point; however did you ever think already that if we treat each other equally it can lead more to a harmonious relationship? Against: Definitely, that is also what I’m thinking because as we accept that we are all equal, like the gender equality what boys can do girls can also do. With that I think we can achieve a more harmonious relationship if we accept that we are all equal. Pro: Well yes I get your point but we really need to accept that we are different from each other. We have different capabilities, likes and dislikes, different lifestyles and others. We are really...

...Debates What is debate?  Many people ask and others use the word on time to time basis, but yet many do not really understand the concept.  A debate is a more formal way or contest between two individuals or teams that allows both to reach their different points of view in a non-insulting matter.  If asked for a more broadly in depth explanation, one might be told that it is a vital tool used for maintaining and developing.  Because two opposing sides have a debate over a certain topics does not guarantee they will end in a result of agreement. When thinking about a debate we do not give much thought to the possibilities it can give a group of students.  Thus one might ask “Why have a debate in a classroom as an activity?”, a debate in a classroom offers lasting and profound benefits to the individuals.  When preparing for a debate a student will emphasis on critical thinking, efficient communication, independent research and being able to work as a team member, this enlarges their way on critically judging crucial issues.  Knowing how to debate in the proper way gives the individuals the proper skills to serve in the real work such as the workplace, political life and more importantly fulfill their responsibilities.  Participating in a debate as a class activity is beneficial for an individual. There are 11 different types of debate formats, and each one have their own time and focus they should be used.  The most common one to use is Parliamentary Debate which is......

[edit]Opening factions The first faction on each Government and Opposition team, known as the Opening Factions, has four basic roles in a British Parliamentary debate. They must: * Define the motion of the debate. * Present their case. * Respond to arguments of the opposing first faction. * Maintain their relevance during the debate. The Opening Government team has the semi-divine right of definition, preventing the opposition from challenging their definition of the motion unless it is either a truism or clearly unreasonable. [edit]Closing factions The role of the second two factions are to: * Introduce a case extension. * Establish and maintain their relevance early in the debate. * Respond to the arguments of the first factions. * Respond to the case extension of the opposing second faction.
