I would like to know if you have thought of these content yourself and can you help me understand more?

I don't know that anything is "new" anymore. I tend to think at this point in history someone has already tried it before. The only difference is the way it's implemented, or personal ideas or inventions that build on top of other discoveries. How's the saying go? Something like "On the shoulders of great men"? So while the design of the website is mine, the idea of having a head to head debate has been done before, and of course debate teams are up and running around the world right now so 2v2 is paired down version of that. As far as the content of the debates, that's up to the users who are in the debate, Fordebating.com is just a free online debate website platform where people can go to debate. So if users are looking to debate politics, religion, science, money, or whatever they can come to FD and create a debate that another user joins (or they can invite someone to the debate) and then they make their cases. After they've used up the 2 to 6 rounds the creator of the debate set the debate closes and other users on the website vote for who won the debate. It's a great place to practice debating because unlike in a real life debate you can have anywhere from 1 day to 7 days to post your round in the debate, and unlike other formats there are a set number of rounds so the debate doesn't go on forever. (like Facebook debates tend to do)

We also have free cash prize debate tournaments, and hope to host premium debates down the road that could be politicians, scientist, famous debaters, etc. Right now FD is still in beta so tournaments are currently working, but we hope to have those up and running soon as well as other areas of the website.

Does that explain it better/answer your question?

The deadline for submission of CEDA Awards nomination materials has been extended to Wednesday evening March 7th. It is my understanding that people who were competing this weekend may need additional time to complete their submissions so we will keep nominations open for an extra 48 hours.

Good afternoon,
I wanted to reach out to you in regard to some news that the Hotel has received from the City of Wichita.  In keeping with the City’s improvement plan to expand 54/400 into a super highway, drivers will not be able to make a left turn in any direction at the Hotel’s intersection of Corporate Hills Drive and Webb Road starting on March 19th, 2018.  The Hotel was told this process of creating the concrete median will take approximately 2 – 3 weeks weather permitting.  I wanted you to have the opportunity to notify your guests about this inconvenience.  The attached file includes driving directions to the hotel.  Thank you so much for your understanding.

 (There is a map posted on the NDT site)
