Let me first introduce myself, I am Kristine Joy Alunan the Deputy Leader of the Opposition side, and I am to rebut the rebuttals and arguments of the government’s Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister and to reestablish new angles of arguments opposing the motion “This house would stop the implementation of the 4Ps”.
First and foremost, let me state again the very essence of 4Ps (Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program) of the government according to DSWD (Department of Social Welfare and Development) as the administrator of the said program -- 4Ps as a poverty reduction and social development strategy that provides conditional cash grants to extremely poor households to improve their health, nutrition, and education particularly in children. Conditional (as highlighted) in a sense that the government will do its job by giving financial assistance to its people and on the other half, the people (especially parents) also have to do their part by ensuring and improving the health and well-being of the young one’s. This helps the government to invest in human capital, which is the ability to perform labor so as to produce economic value.
The Prime Minister of the government side stated that “we should stop the implementation of 4ps because it develops a culture of laziness and dependency of the people to the government”, and I fail to agree with this inaccurate statement because the 4Ps beneficiaries were also introduced into livelihood programs also known as SEA-K (Self Employment Assistance – Kaunlaran). And I can give you one of some success stories about this program to support the fact that I had given.
Here is this woman named Maribel Baccay, a mother of six, from Paracelis, Mt. Province. As one of the first batch of beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps), also known as the conditional cash transfer (CCT) program, in the Cordillera…...

...Welfare Drug Testing Laws Gain Momentum [Editorial] 2012, April 1). Desert News As stated by Elizabeth Stuart in a recent article in the Desert News, Utah was he first state to pass the welfare drug testing law just recently in 2012, however twenty five other states are considering drug testing as part of the application process for receiving federal assistance. Mandatory drug testing has become extremely popular among tax payers and has also been supported by both Romney and Gingrich in the presidential debates. Both presidential candidates support the idea and view it as an excellent way to monitor drug use and lower public cost. While this drug testing is permitted by federal laws is faces much opposition, claiming it is unconstitutional to test without reasonable cause, arguing it is a violation of rights. However supporters of the drug testing argue that receiving benefits is a privilege not a right. Taxpayers feel anyone unwilling to submit to drug testing must have something to hide, even working citizens are often forced to take drug test to get a job, why should welfare recipients by any different. I support Stuart's findings and agree with the proposal of mandatory drug testing. Although the saving may be minimal, the overall benefits of removing drug users for the assistance program will be a positive change to the system, and an encouragement to tax payers. Taxpayers do not want to pay for illegal drug use and misuse of the system. Stuart has outstanding......

...Avery Hill 11/6/2013 Critical Thinking Debate #1 Does Racism still have a significant effect on education in America Today? 1. How Organize was the Group? I give the pro side a nine and the con side a 7. I feel like the pro side knew who was going to go up and speak and what information each person was going to speak about. The Con side held little meetings between each rebuttal where it looked as if they were still gathering info and couldn’t get the right response. 2. How prepared was the Group? I give the Pro side an eight and the Con side a 9. The Pro side had a lot of very interesting comments and situations about racism in school, but really no proof, they were just statements or situational. I feel like the Con side had an answer for everything they said and had facts to support their answers. 3. How persuasive was the presentation? I gave the Pro side a Ten and the Con side a seven. I feel like the Pro side might not have had the most facts or information to back up their statements but I feel like the way the spoke with so much emphasis and persuasion in their voice it was hard to disagree with them. The Con side had all the write info but none of the right speakers. Their voices were all pretty low and some words you couldn’t even understand. 4. Rate the Delivery. I gave the Pro side a 10 and the Con side a 7. The pro side was just on point with delivery. They were......

...Debate Focus The federal bill H.R. 724 is known as the America’s Partnership for Nursing Education Act of 2009. The focus of this bill is to amend the Public Health Service Act by authorizing grants to increase the number of qualified nursing faculty. The anticipated nursing shortage in any state of less than 555 nurses per 100,000 capita by 2020 qualifies a state for this grant. The nursing faculty shortage jeopardizes patient care and causes health care costs to rise. Recruitment and retention must be a focus as qualified applicants are few. Grants are available to states that implement or are in the process of implementing a program in conjunction with at least one college or university to address the nursing faculty shortage. This is a partnership that not only addresses recruitment but assists in the retention of faculty. The qualifying states are to use the grant money, in addition to its current funds, to pay for programs that intend to decrease the nursing and faculty shortage and compensate current nursing faculty. The receiving state must not use the grant money for capital investments. The minimum grant amount is 2 Million dollars for the budgetary year and the receiving states must submit an annual report showing that the money was used appropriately and that there is still a nursing faculty shortage. The intention of this Act is to provide assistance to nursing programs unable to meet nursing demands of the United States because nursing faculty are not......

...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......

...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......

...answer as to whether guns are protective or perilous, this study is a beginning.” Daniel Webster thinks its near-sighted to consider only the safety of gun owners and not their communities. Mckinley, James C., ‘Teachers Carry Books and Guns”, NYTimes, 28 August 2008, http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/29/us/29texas.html In James C. McKinley Jr’s article, In Texas School, Teachers Carry Books and Guns (28 August 2008), James verifies that students spent much of the first couple days trying to guess which of their teachers were carrying pistols under their clothes. David Thweatt claims that “country people are take-care-of-themselves-people”. Others disagree. The idea of teachers’ taking guns to class has rattled some people and sparked a fiery debate. Americans should be less afraid of protecting themselves and who thinks signs at schools saying “gun-free zone” make them targets for armed attacks. “Having teachers carry guns is a rational response to a real threat”, Mr. Thweatt stays saying. Some residents and parents say that they rarely lock their doors and were hard-pressed to recall a single violent incident there. Others worry that introducing guns into the classroom might create more problems than it solved. A teacher tussling with a student could lose control of a weapon, or a gun might go off by accident. There are too many things that could happen. Teachers aren’t trained to make life-and-death-situation judgments. A teacher said, “We are trained to teach and......

...Debate Winner Summary Charis Lawson BCOM/275 Prof. Maribelin Gutierrez Why all children shouldn’t receive a Trophy When children participate in sports it is important for them to feel like they have achieved something. This will encourage them to continue what they are doing and strive for success. In the early years it is acceptable for all children to receive trophies in sporting events as it motivates them. Yet after a certain age around ten years children should begin learning that not everyone is a winner. As they get older they should know what it feels like to lose and they should know what it feels like when they really have accomplished something. The children who do not win in the sporting events will see the winners receive their trophies and will try to excel so they could be the ones receiving trophies. If all the children receive trophies it will take away from their work ethic and they will start to believe all they have to do is show up and they will get a trophy or prize. Learning to lose is a skill all children should gain in order to better them selves. If they do not learn this skill they will think that everything is given to them they will never accomplish anything in life. Life is about working hard to accomplish your goals and if their goal is to win that trophy then they will do what is necessary from them to win that trophy....

...regarding his or her employment process with the background check. There are many legal issues related to background checks due to an organization illegally running a check on a potential employee without permission from that person. An employer losing personal information or misplacing it, and another person or employee gaining access to this personal employee information provided in the background check. An employer who does not provide a background check to an applicant applying for a government job, hospital, childcare, and a public service job can be fined or faced with multiple punishments which creates legal issues for that employer and organization. There are specific career competencies that are helpful and can be used in the debate when it comes to current and future jobs. A person who does not have the basic technology skills is going to have a hard time with employment due to the world of technology we live in today. Critical thinking skills is very important when it comes to job description because problems can come and go at any given second, and the employee needs to know how to solve that problem as it exists. Communication skills are required for most job opportunities and an employer looks for employees with good communication skills. All forms of communication are used in most companies and the applicant must be able to effectively communicate at all times. An employee has to have the ability of adapting to change and the work environment to keep up......

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......

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......
