Who should authorize the expansion of casino gambling in our state – the legislature or voters? Floridians will decide that in November by casting their ballot for or against Amendment 3. And, on Thursday, October 25, talented students from Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School’s Speech and Debate team will go head-to-head on the subject during The Great Debate, which will take place at Vi at Aventura. Hosted by Jilda Unruh, an Emmy Award winning investigative TV journalist, The Great Debate will feature students presenting their case on both sides of the issue, as well as the pros and cons of casino gambling. Afterward, Vi residents and guests will cast their ballot for the winning team based on the merits of each argument. “It’s relevant, engaging events and community partnerships that set us apart,” says Renee Garvin, Vi at Aventura Executive Director. “Our residents are excited about seeing the students debate this important issue.” … [Read more...] about Vi at Aventura is ALL ACES The Great Debate
Chris Iseman Staff Writer, @chrisiseman Published 1:12 p.m. UTC May 30, 2018 The debate has raged for a while now. Statistics have been analyzed and playoff performances scrutinized. Analysts and experts have tossed their opinions back and forth in an argument that may never truly be answered one way or the other. But recent developments have thrust the debate back into the spotlight. LeBron James vs. Michael Jordan. Who's the greatest of all time? There is no clear-cut answer, although fans on each side of the LeBron vs. MJ debate will try to find one. For one thing, they played in very different eras. The style of the NBA, particularly its emphasis on three-point shooting, is different now than when Jordan played. It's a different game. The other factor is that Jordan and James played against different teams and different players. It's difficult to compare careers that way. James' career also isn't over. There are more statistics for him to pile up and … [Read more...] about LeBron James vs. Michael Jordan. Is there even an answer in the great debate?
[row cols_nr=”2″] [col size=”6″] Teams Should Play to Full Strength Jared Walch At some point in every sporting season, we seem to return to the same points and the same arguments. After Rutgers’ embarrassing 78-0 loss against Michigan earlier this season, the argument that we have come back to is this: is it acceptable to run up the score on an opponent? Is there ever a point where enough is enough? Honestly, it is acceptable. We love sports, because we love competition. We enjoy watching our team battle it out with another team to prove supremacy and dominance. We want them to perform to the best of their abilities and if it ends up being a blowout victory, all the better. In many of these games, the starters tend to get things rolling and are then replaced by the second unit once the lead is high enough. It is a technique called coasting and nearly every coach and team does it. You build a lead and then you rest your starters. All you really need … [Read more...] about Great Debate: Is Running Up the Score Uncalled For?

12:46 p.m. Rip Steelers Update: I forgot the worst Pittsburgh coaching decision–having Roethlisberger dance around and fall down on third-and-short on their final possession, up by 1, just to make sure Jax called its last timeout before a Pitts punt. Result: No first down, horrible Steelers punt, Jax needs only 30-40 yards for game-winning FG, and that’s exactly what happens. Bad, conservative, losing, Nolan-like decision–you’re up TWO scores, then (like the Giants just did in Tampa, we’ll see how it works), you force the TO. But if you’re up by 1 point deep in your territory, and you have a decent QB, you throw the friggin’ ball and try to make ONE play that wins the game. Straight from today’s paper, with an add-on… Must give a nod to Buzz Ryan, but that’s an obvious one, since he and I understand one thing most NFL coaches (and TV analysts) never get from last night’s 31-29 Jax win over Pittsburgh: -In … [Read more...] about The Original Talking Points: Going for two, and the great debate-Clemens or Bonds, who’s the greatest injector?
