Seawolf debaters travel to Thailand to compete

The Seawolf Debate Team traveled six debaters to Bangkok, Thailand over the winter break to compete in the 28th World Universities Debating Championships. In attendance were 396 teams, hailing from 150 colleges and universities and 47 nations.

Representing UAA were the teams of Michael Rose (senior, political science) and Ben Ferguson (junior, philosophy); David Childers (junior, political science) and Jennifer Lucas-Duffy (graduate student, psychology); and Nick Byrne (junior, English) and Drew Cason (freshman, biology). This was the fourth trip to the world championships for Rose and the second for both Ferguson and Childers. Duffy, Byrne and Cason attended their first "Worlds" tournament.

Over the course of nine preliminary and four elimination rounds, the 792 debaters at the tournament engaged one another on numerous controversial topics. They included whether governments should rescue failing private industries, whether we should deny terminally ill patients access to scarce medical resources, and whether religious adoption agencies should be required to place children with homosexual couples. Over the course of seven days, the Seawolf debaters exchanged ideas and perspectives with individuals from many of the world's top academic institutions while they interacted with people from varied educational, social and cultural backgrounds.

As an example, Round 1 of the tournament found Childers and Lucas-Duffy assigned the role of Opening Proposition to defend the motion "This House would allow the use of torture." UAA’s team was pitted against teams from Harvard, the University Teknologi Malaysia and Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Serving as adjudicators and engaging the competitors in a thorough analysis of the debate upon its conclusion were representatives from UCC Law School (Ireland), Duke, Swinburne University of Technology (Australia), the University of York (U.K.) and the University of Western Australia.

Throughout the tournament UAA's debaters interacted with delegates from such universities as Bandung Islamic University (Indonesia), the Beijing Language Academy, Cambridge, Dubai Aerospace Engineering University, Hanyang University (South Korea), International Islamic University of Malaysia, Oxford, Princeton, Seikei University (Japan), Stanford, the University of Aukland (New Zealand), the University of Cape Town (South Africa), the University of Hong Kong, the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), the University of Santo Tomas (Philippines), the University of Zagreb (Croatia) and Yale.

While the upcoming semester includes four tournaments, the team's primary focus will be hosting the campus intramural debate competition: the Cabin Fever Debates. Any UAA student enrolled in at least three credits is eligible to compete. For more information visit the Cabin Fever Debates Web site at www.uaa.alaska.edu/seawolfdebate/CabinFeverDebates/.

For more information please contact Steve Johnson (786-4391) or Shawn Briscoe (786-4354). You can also learn more about the team at www.uaa.alaska.edu/seawolfdebate/.

Seawolf Debate Team shines in Vancouver tournament

The Seawolf Debate Team returned to international competition in its final tune-up for the World Universities Debating Championships. On November 30 and December 1, 12 debaters traveled to Vancouver, BC for the University of British Columbia Invitational Tournament. The competition hosted 88 debaters representing nine universities from the United States and Canada.

At the end of five preliminary rounds, four of UAA's six teams finished in the top half of the competition. Leading the pack, as the top seeded team in the tournament was the duo of Ben Ferguson (Junior, Philosophy) and Michael Rose (Senior, Political Science). Of the eight teams advancing to the semifinal round, Ferguson and Rose were one of only two to advance to the semifinal round and the only U.S. team to make the final round. Freshman Michaela Hernandez (Philosophy) and James Stinson (Junior, History) were only a single point away from joining them in the semifinals. The Seawolves' top team then went on to earn an unofficial second place in the tournament.

The Seawolves also earned a number of individual honors, placing seven in the top half of the field. Of significance, three placed in the top 15: Stinson (15th), Ferguson (7th), and Rose (2nd). Proving they have many talents, a handful of competitors chose to compete in public speaking in addition to their debate responsibilities. For their efforts, both Nick Byrne (Junior, English) and David Childers (Junior, Political Science) earned spots in the final round of competition.

Over the course of the weekend, the team debated such controversial topics as whether or not votes should be weighted according a person's level of education, whether we should repeal sanctions against Cuba, the right of self-determination for indigenous people, and whether the Roman Catholic Church should play a role in political diplomacy.

In the semifinal round, Ferguson and Rose were pitted against teams from Regis University (Denver), the University of Saskatchewan and the University of British Columbia. The teams debated whether we should support government reparations for past transgressions, and UAA was assigned the role of opening the debate for opposition side. They broke the debate into two lines of argument: the practical and the philosophical. On the philosophical front, they argued that reparations are problematic since it is often difficult to identify a recipient group. That is, who should be awarded reparations? They also argued that it is impractical to assess the level of damage; and, therefore, how much groups should be compensated. When looking to the philosophical side, they looked at the nature of restoration.

First, they made the case that our government should be prospective rather than retrospective in its actions. Second, they argued that we should build on existing ties – focusing on our commonalities. However, reparations focus on the differences between groups and often alienate the victims of past transgressions. Therefore, they argued in favor of alternatives such as Truth and Reconciliation Commissions and promoting active political participation of all groups.

Next up, the Seawolves travel three teams to the World Universities Debating Championships. Making the trip to Bangkok, Thailand, the teams of Ferguson and Rose, Childers and Jennifer Lucas-Duffy (Graduate Student, Psychology), and Byrne and Drew Cason (Freshman, Biology) will compete against 397 other schools at Assumption University. For more information please contact Steve Johnson (786-4391) or Shawn Briscoe (786-4354). You may also visit the team’s recently updated Web site at www.uaa.alaska.edu/seawolfdebate/

Seawolf speakers take top honors in Oregon

The Seawolf Debate Team returned to domestic competition on November 10 and 11 when it traveled to McMinnville, Oregon for the Mahaffey Invitational hosted by Linfield College. The tournament featured competition in which 48 debaters represented nine colleges and universities in the worlds style format of debate competition.

This was a breakout tournament, as UAA took five new debaters on the road for the first time this season: Phil Bunker (Junior, Undeclared), Nick Byrne (Junior, English), Drew Cason (Freshman, Biology), Michaela Hernandez (Freshman, Philosophy) and Jennifer Lucas-Duffy (Senior, Psychology).

Over the course of the weekend, the debaters engaged one another on a myriad of controversial topics such as whether or not the U.S. should make all aid to Pakistan contingent upon free and fair democratic elections, whether the U.S. should implement a cap and trade system on all carbon emissions and whether the United Nations should recognize a sovereign and independent Taiwan.

After five grueling rounds of preliminary competition, it was apparent that the Seawolves were in top competitive form. Of the eight teams advancing to the semi-final round of competition, three hailed from Alaska: Nikki Rose (Junior, Political Science) and Jacit Conright (Sophomore, Business Administration); David Childers (Junior, Political Science) and Jennifer Lucas-Duffy (Graduate Student, Psychology); and Ben Ferguson (Junior, Philosophy) and Mike Rose (Senior, Political Science). Furthermore, as the 10th seeded team, Byrne and Cason narrowly missed the cut to the semi-final round.

In the semi-final round, the competitors debated whether or not Kosovo should be recognized as an independent nation. While all the UAA teams argued passionately, only Michael Rose and Ben Ferguson were selected to advance to the final round. In that round, Rose and Ferguson faced competition from two Seattle University teams and a team from Willamette University. The teams argued about the leadership of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, with Rose and Ferguson arguing that Chavez is more likely to harm Venezuela than help it. Their position proved insurmountable to the competition, and Alaska banked its first tournament championship of the season.

In addition to team awards, the Seawolves garnered several individual speaker awards. Childers was ranked as the 6th overall speaker, Ferguson took 3rd speaker, and Rose was only two points away from being the top speaker at the tournament. But perhaps the most important comment on the future of Seawolf Debate is that nine of Alaska’s debaters placed in the top 24.

In two weeks, the Seawolves return to international competition at the University of British Columbia’s invitational tournament. This will be the team’s final tune-up for the World Championships, which will be held in Thailand over the holiday break. For more information please contact Steve Johnson at 786-4391 or Shawn Briscoe at 786-4354.

Three UAA students attend National Ethics Conference

The Division of Student Development (DSD) sent three students to participate in the 22nd Annual National Conference on Ethics in America hosted by the United States Military Academy at West Point. Tyler Eggen, Eddy Ozoma and Brandon Telford represented UAA during the week of October 21.

The conference maintains several goals. It is primarily designed to give institutions the opportunity to exchange conceptual viewpoints and current philosophies. The discourse directly aids in the initiation of new codes, refinement of existing honor codes and systems, and the development of different programs centered on ethical topics that influence college students. Also important is the intent to develop a national awareness regarding moral and ethical development on college campuses, and beyond, into the professional arena.

The conference included student discussions of ethical challenges facing college students in the 21st century and small group projects addressing moral and ethical development in a college environment. Students also had the opportunity to meet with senior leaders from over a dozen venues to discuss ethics in business, sports and political communities. Conference speakers included Martha Raddatz, author and ABC News Chief White House Correspondent; Eric Alexander, mountaineer; and Dana Mead, chairman of the MIT Corporation.

The students selected to attend were chosen based on their leadership, contributions to UAA student life, and their interest in the conference topic of ethics in education. Airfare was sponsored by three DSD departments: Judicial Services & Ethical Development, Residence Life and Student Life & Leadership. All other expenses were sponsored by the conference.

Congratulations to Eggen, Ozoma and Talford for earning the opportunity to attend this important conference! Hopefully they have returned with some great information to share with their peers, UAA and the community.

Seawolf Debate Team earns international kudos

The University of Alaska Anchorage Seawolf Debate Team extended their record of international success this weekend with their trip to the Canadian University Society for Intercollegiate Debate’s (CUSID) National British Parliamentary Debating Championship tournament hosted by the University of Alberta in Edmonton.

The tournament, sponsored by the governing authority for intercollegiate debating in Canada, featured competition from both Canada and the United States in the British Parliamentary style, the format of debating used at the World Universities Debating Championships. Canada produces some of the best debaters in the world, with the World Champions from 2005 and 2006 and the 2007 Top Speaker at the World Championships all from Canadian universities. In other words, the competition at this tournament is first class.

The Seawolves entered two teams in the tournament. Both teams squared off against teams from the University of Toronto, McGill University and Claremont University and others in five preliminary rounds of competition. Tackling topics ranging from whether binding faith-based arbitration should be an acceptable alternative to civil courts to how to respond to China’s increased investments in African nations, the team of Michael Rose (Senior, Political Science) and Ben Ferguson (Junior, Philosophy) accumulated enough points to advance to the semifinal round of the competition.

In that round, the Seawolves faced Toronto, Carlton and the University of British Columbia on the motion “This House believes the United States should sever ties with the Musharraf regime.” Arguing that Musharraf’s increasingly autocratic rule has made him more of a liability than an asset to the U.S. in its fight against radical Islamist terrorists, Rose and Ferguson were selected to advance to the final round. In the final, the Seawolves argued fervently against requiring that public funding be used to provide fertility treatments to those who can’t afford them. Unfortunately, the panel of adjudicators ultimately were convinced by the opposing side and voted against the motion. The Seawolves had to content themselves with finalist honors.

The Seawolves next travel to the Mahaffey Invitational hosted by Linfield College in McMinville, Oregon. The team will soon announce its delegates to the 2008 World Universities Debating Championships to be hosted by Assumption University in Bangkok, Thailand in January. For more information please contact Steve Johnson at 786-4391 or Shawn Briscoe at 786-4354.

Atheneum School presents research at international conference

Atheneum School to Present Energy Research at International Conference
Students discovered a need for broad energy dialogue while building an electric car

(Anchorage) - Students from the Atheneum School, an independent secondary school located in Anchorage, will present their electric car project on Tuesday to the Arctic Energy Summit in Anchorage. While the student’s presentation was inspired by their successful gas to electric conversion of a 1968 Datsun Roadster, the presentation discusses much more than building a car: It also considers what will be necessary to build new approaches to energy education.

A car wasn’t the only thing that radically transformed during the nine-month project; students who participated noted a shift in how they view renewable energy. “Changing people’s minds about energy possibilities is much more difficult than building the car,” said Austin Johnson, a student at the Atheneum School. “When I started the project, I had no idea an electric car had so much potential.”

Kevin Holthaus, a teacher and one of the founders of the Atheneum School, was impressed with how his students approached the possibilities. “High school students don’t have many of the pre-conceived notions that prevent considering radical new ideas,” he noted when discussing the project.

The students didn’t only research batteries, motors and transmissions during the project; they also studied different philosophical approaches to energy use. From ‘Moon Rush,’ a book that considers tapping the moon for additional resources, to ‘Natural Capitalism,’ a work that promotes a new type of industrialism, the possibilities were endless. In the usual Atheneum style, students spent hours around a seminar table formulating their own views and discussing the merits of various theories.

In the end, the students reached the conclusion that an open dialogue, which includes all stakeholders, will be necessary to address both current and future energy issues. Presenting at the Arctic Energy Summit gives the school a chance to make their case with all stakeholders present, since the forum includes both public and private sector leaders.

The research paper presented to the conference is attached. For more information about the Atheneum School or to schedule a ride in the electric car, contact Kevin Holthaus at (907) 344-2533. For more information about the Arctic Energy Summit, visit www.arcticenergysummit.org.

Where: Egan Civic Convention Center, Room 2

Seawolf debaters succeed in California

The Seawolf Debate Team started its season right where it left off last season: winning. On October 6 and 7, four UAA debaters traveled to southern California to kick off the squad's season at the U.S. Universities National Open hosted by the Claremont Colleges. Sixty-four debaters representing more than 10 colleges participated in the event.

These talented young men and women engaged one another in a number of public policy topics, ranging from whether the media should be restricted during times of national emergencies, whether we should encourage the international trade of nuclear energy technology, and whether indigenous people should have exclusive control of their archeological sites.

Both UAA teams in attendance represented Alaska extremely well, bringing home some well-deserved hardware for the trophy case. Senior Mike Rose and junior Ben Ferguson reached the semi-final round, placing them among the top eight teams at the tournament. Meanwhile, senior David Childers and junior James Stinson joined three other teams in the championship round of competition.

In the final debate, Childers and Stinson were assigned to defend the devaluation of the American dollar. They assembled a case demonstrating how the subprime mortgage crisis could be mitigated by a modest dollar devaluation; that a devalued dollar would increase the export of American goods and services, thereby stimulating the U.S. economy; and that a devalued dollar would boost both the Canadian and Mexican manufacturing economies. In response to global, short-term economic concerns, they also argued that China's growing economic power would stabilize the global economy while the U.S. economy corrected itself.

The team next travels to Edmonton to compete in the Canadian championships held in the style of debate practiced at the World Universities Debating Championships. The team is focused on preparation for the eventual World Championships, to be held in Bangkok over the holiday break. For more information contact Steve Johnson at 786-4391 or Shawn Briscoe at 786-4354.

Interlochen Arts Academy attracts more than 500 young artists from 40 states and 15 countries. Together, they study music, theatre, dance, visual arts, creative writing and motion picture arts in a college-like setting. While producing more than 250 artistic presentations in the school year, Academy students also master a rigorous college-preparatory academic curriculum that prepares them to take prominent roles in a whole universe of professional endeavors.

Following the success of Interlochen Arts Camp, the Arts Academy was founded in 1962 to provide year-round training in the arts coupled with rigorous college-preparatory academics. This combination has resulted in a record of sustained outstanding achievement. Since the school was established, it has produced 38 Presidential Scholars and formed a global network of leaders and innovators. Alumni include singer-songwriter, Alaska’s own Jewel, actress Felicity Huffman, jazz drummer Peter Erskine, and designer Bill Zheng. Nearly fifteen percent of the nation’s orchestral musicians can claim roots at either Interlochen Arts Camp or Academy. Since 1958, 85 Grammy’s have been awarded to Interlochen Camp or Academy alumni.

Anchorage students receive scholarships

The Alaska Travel Industry Association (AlaskaTIA) recently awarded 14 scholarships totaling $27,000 in aid to students pursuing careers in the visitor industry.

The program is designed to offer assistance to promising Alaska residents who have expressed an interest in turning their tourism experience into a career. Five of the 14 recipients were from the Anchorage area.

“Tourism is Alaska’s second largest private-sector employer,” said Stefanie Gorder, chair of the AlaskaTIA foundation. “By assisting these talented students today, we are helping develop Alaska’s skilled work force for the future.”

“This scholarship program exhibits tourism’s investment in its future. The travel industry offers many excellent career opportunities and AlaskaTIA is committed to helping these students explore these opportunities and develop Alaska’s future work force,” said AlaskaTIA president and COO, Ron Peck.

AlaskaTIA is made up of over 1,100 member-businesses, from large cruise lines to small bed and breakfasts. Members contribute to the scholarship program at industry events throughout the year and through seven local chapters of the association across Alaska, including the Anchorage chapter.

2007 Anchorage Scholarship Winners:

Shauna Moore of Chugiak was the recipient of the AlaskaTIA Anchorage Chapter Scholarship, worth $2,500. Moore attends the University of Alaska, Anchorage, and is currently studying abroad at Apicius, the Culinary Institute of Florence, Italy.

Maria Benner of Anchorage, who is pursuing her master’s in business administration at Alaska Pacific University, received the AlaskaTIA Continuing Education Scholarship for the second year. Benner will use her $2,500 scholarship to continue her MBA to further her career in tourism marketing.

Melissa Stoner of Anchorage received the $1,000 Royal Caribbean Cruises Scholarship. Stoner will use her scholarship to work toward obtaining her degree in culinary arts and nutrition from Johnson and Wales University in Denver, Colo. Stoner’s ultimate goal is to use her education and experience to become a registered dietician and personal chef in Anchorage.

Chelsea Alletson of Anchorage received the $1,000 ATIA One-Year Scholarship. Alletson will use her scholarship at the Western Culinary Institute of Portland to pursue a degree in restaurant and hotel management.

The selection criteria included academic achievement, tourism-orientated career goals, letters of reference and an essay each applicant wrote about their future plans.

Seawolf Debaters travel to China, promote academic debate

ANCHORAGE, AK – Members of the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) Seawolf Debate program recently returned from a trip to China to promote academic debating. Supported by a grant from the Alaska International Education Foundation, the trip took the team from Beijing to Xi’an to participate in two different debating events.

The first stop was the Foreign Languages Teaching and Research Press (FLTRP) Cup, the national English language debating tournament. More than 500 students and their instructors, representing over 130 colleges and universities from around China, attended the tournament. Steve Johnson, UAA’s Director of Debate, participated in training and served as Chief Adjudicator for the event. Other members of the Seawolf Debate program mentored Chinese debaters and served as adjudicators for the competitive rounds.

From there, the Seawolves traveled to Xi’an Jiaotong University to participate in the International Debate Education Association’s international tournament. Approximately 30 other American students from the West Coast and over 150 Chinese students joined the Alaska debaters in Central China to train and compete. Each of UAA’s debaters was paired with a Chinese partner for the event to enter the competition as “friendship teams.” Though they competed against teams of native English speakers, all four of UAA’s friendship teams advanced to the elimination rounds and three of those four teams were selected to participate in the “friendship” final round—open only to teams comprised of one Chinese and one American student. Two of UAA’s debaters took the top two individual speaking prizes at the tournament: Michael Rose and David Childers were ranked second and first individual speakers, respectively, out of the over 200 debaters that participated in the event.

In all, the UAA students learned a great deal about Chinese culture, introduced a significant number of Chinese students to the educational experience of academic debating and made some life-long friends. The debaters will take the rest of the summer off to recuperate from a challenging competitive season. The team will return in the fall to open the 2007-2008 competitive season with a trip to Los Angeles to compete in the Claremont Colleges Invitational.

For more information, please contact Steven Johnson at 786-4391.

Local Students Excel in High School Design Competition

Anchorage, Alaska (June 18, 2007) – AIA Alaska, a Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA-AK), is pleased to announce the winners of the 2007 Frank Maier High School Design Competition Program:

• First Place $350): Heidi Brehmer, Chugiak High School (Teacher – Roy Baxter)

• Second Place ($250): Luis Ramon Hermida Ortiz, Kodiak High School (Teacher – Barry Altenhof)

• Third Place ($150): Lucas Fried, Kodiak High School (Teacher – Barry Altenhof)

• Fourth Place ($100): Natalie Block, Kodiak High School (Teacher – Barry Altenhof)

The Frank Maier High School Design Competition is an annual architectural design challenge sponsored by AIA-AK. To enter the competition, students must provide a design solution to a specified “design problem” on a 24’x 36’ sheet of paper. For the 2007 competition, students were tasked with providing concept designs for a small visitor/game management facility for the Delta Junction Bison Herd on behalf of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. They were given a set of building requirements and information about the site. High School faculty members provided guidance and oversight to students entering the competition. Entries were judged by a panel of AIA-AK members.

Any student (grades 9-12) presently enrolled in Alaska high school classes are eligible to submit an entry. This year, AIA-AK received 41 entries from six high schools around Alaska for this design competition: Chugiak High School (6); Juneau-Douglas High School (12); Kodiak High School (9); Palmer High School (10); Service High School (2); and South Anchorage High School (2). “The AIA Alaska Chapter expresses our congratulations and appreciation to ALL the student participants for their hard work in this effort. We would also like to recognize the teachers for their effort and we extend our appreciation to them,” said Harley Hightower, Chair, AIA Alaska Chapter High School Design Competition Committee.

Frank Maier, a Juneau Architect, started this program in 1965 and managed it personally for 20 years. Following his death in 1991, the AIA-AK elected to name the competition in his honor. Now, in its fifth decade of success, this competition continues to expose Alaska high school students to architecture and the profession.

About The American Institute of Architects: For almost 150 years, members of the American Institute of Architects have worked with each other and their communities to create more valuable, healthy, secure, and sustainable buildings and cityscapes. The Alaska Chapter of the AIA was established in 1961.
