FX/NX/LD/PF – Extemp Files updates

A little late to get this up, perhaps, but State is tomorrow around here.

PF – Okinawa – there are two new articles on the current state of affairs there that are worth the read. (Japan folder – 0316 Japan halts…  and 0316 Shinzo Abe and Okinawa’s Governor…)

LD – Middle East democracy – look in the Tunisia (0316 – Grewal…) and Jordan (0316 Ryan…) folders. The 0316 Akyol… article in the Turkey folder is also relevant.

The Extemp Files were updated this evening, through today. This includes the Elections and Supreme Court folders. They just finished a few minutes ago.

Extemp Files instructions repost: The link takes you to a Dropbox folder; if a pop-over window saying something about setting up an account or logging in comes up, just close it.

The files are serious overkill – about 22,000 articles right now. There should be a way to copy or download individual articles when you find the ones you want in your files – try right-clicking the specific PDF file/article and selecting the ‘save link as’ option.

The four-digit numbers at the beginning of most of the file names (and the names of the sub-folders) are simply mm/yy codes so that you can tell how recent the article is at a glance.

Please don’t download the whole thing; it trips up my Dropbox limits and bad things happen that shut down access for others. If you need a full copy, let me know (see the About link for an email address) and I’ll make arrangements to get you a copy or share the folder (so that you get the updates as soon as I post them). Students who want to share the folder will need to have an OK from their coach – I don’t want to step on the toes of any coaches who prefer other methods of team research. (Several coaches already share the folder, if you’re a coach and are interested.)
