Addicted to NationStates? Then swing by with an anonymous puppet!

Maybe share why you think you are? How do you cope with it?

Or tell us why you think you do NOT suffer a gaming disorder despite having 300 nations in which you log in daily every 3min 30h a day!

Is it worth it? Is this game really that good? A part of me thinks it is, probably not a healthy part.

Don't expect professional help. Don't expect any help! Which you probably anyway don't seek.

But....

You are not alone.

and to acknowledge to oneself that there might be an issue doesn't harm, right?

The AP testing weeks are upon us, and I wish good luck to all taking the tests. Anyhow, on to the topic:

"How could Appalachia and other rural areas be able to transition away from single-resource economies?"

To clarify, just put out your ideas to help change rural areas to be more economically stable and viable in the long-term.

The New York Times: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/12/us/mined-minds-west-virginia-coding.html

Ok, let's do lighter debate this week:

"What is the best cell phone?"

To clarify, this is just a fun one to basically just tell people what your favorite phone is, whither it's iPhone, Samsung, Nokia, etc...

Time for the most polarizing topic around: the flag of Maryland. But let's be honest . . . there's only one right answer.

All those who answer correctly will receive a complimentary Maryland-themed Covfefe!

The state of Maryland is in no way a sponsor of the Nambian Covfefe Company.

Well, I'm not dead, just graduation week happened. Sorry for not communicating this, I just thought that I would have time to do last week's debate, which I did not. At least I now have my High School Diploma! Anyways, let's look at the SCOTUS this week:

"What is your opinion on Dept. of Commerce v. New York and Rucho v. Common Cause?"

To Clarify, Dept of Commerce v. New York is about the citizenship question in the 2020 US census, while Rucho v. Common Cause is about political gerrymandering.

Well, it sounds like there's another round of protests in Hong Kong, and so I thought I'd ask you guys a speculative question:

"What should Hong Kong's future be?"

Recent News on Hong Kong:

*Quick announcement, I'm going on a family roadtrip, so after this week, there will be no new topics for the next two weeks until at least the 7th of July.*

This week's topic is following news that is somewhat buried, and is hard to find really good sources for reference, but here we go:

"What do you believe will happen in South Sudan following the Coup D'etat by the military?"

To clarify, this will be speculation and educated guessing.

SFGate: https://www.sfgate.com/news/crime/article/Sudan-protesters-urge-night-rallies-amid-standoff-14002558.php

Express: https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/1140393/sudan-news-what-is-happening-in-sudan-protests-uprising-violence-sudan-crisis

I am alive! The road trip was fun and I even learned a bit more about my family history when visiting relatives. Anyways, this week's debate feels like it might be a bit mild, but I might be wrong:

"Should inmates (including those that would not be released without pardon or commutation) be allowed to take college-level classes and work towards degrees while incarcerated?"

USA Today: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/no-girls-parties-cellphones-californias-prison-inmates-are-getting-bachelors-degrees/ar-AAEe8sx?ocid=spartanntp

The Hechinger Report: https://hechingerreport.org/will-thousands-of-prison-inmates-lose-access-to-college/

Well, I'll keep this brief since I still have to study for the college math placement test this week:

"What should happen with the governor of Peurto Rico?"

USA Today: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/newsus/the-people-of-puerto-rico-are-angry-here-is-whats-fueling-a-major-protest-planned-for-monday/ar-AAEEDcY?ocid=msn360

The New York Times: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/newsus/defying-protests-gov-ricardo-rossello-of-puerto-rico-says-he-will-stay-on/ar-AAEFMY0?ocid=msn360

OK, just a short, easy debate this week:

"What is your opinion on the 'Positive Ticketing' campaign in Tempe, AZ?"

USA Today: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/follow-the-law-get-pulled-over-why-a-police-plan-to-ticket-drivers-backfired-in-arizona/ar-AAF26ym?ocid=spartanntp

And we're back this week with tech-oriented debate this time.
Also, if you didn't see last week's post, I would just like to offer my condolences to anyone who may have lost friends or family in the recent mass shootings in the US.

"Should companies be allowed to create their own currencies, digital or otherwise?"
