The first comes from last year’s NFL International Extemp national champion and National Points Race champion Jacob Baker. Baker attends Cornell University and is a member of the Cornell International Affairs Review. He has founded a blog called “The Diplomacist.” The blog, according to Jacob, is a “collaborative effort amongst students from 10 universities across the nation to express opinions about international affairs in short-form journalism.” You can access “The Diplomacist” by clicking here and you can access their twitter by clicking here.
Also, Omar Qureshi, the 2008 NFL International Extemp runner-up, has asked me to pass along to any extempers who do Public Forum debate that he has a thirty page brief on this month’s NFL topic. The brief is $10 and you can access it on Omar’s Championship Debate website.
These resources, in addition to what extempers and Public Forum debaters find elsewhere online and from different vendors, would be a welcome addition to anyone’s competitive arsenal.
