Cheese buffet, a new circuit and time traveller debates – Andreas Lazar on the Paris IV

Cheese buffet, a new circuit and time traveller debates – Andreas Lazar on the Paris IV Paris is very, very beautiful. Plus, it is the political, economic and social center of the French nation.

The about 150 participants of the Paris IV were offered hospitality and French cuisine, impressive technology and the art of partying plus a city tour – and all that in just under 45 hours. The debaters – from the Wordls finalist John Ashbourne from the London School ...

Thanks to this folding, room three of the ESL qurter finals will see two German teams: Stuttgart A (Andreas Lazar and Michael Saliba) and Berlin B (Patrick Ehmann and Bastian Laubner). Other German teams in the quarters are Berlin B (Florian Umscheid and Dessislava Kirova) and Gutenberg A (Marcus Ewald and Marietta ...
