Re: 2017 Division II ICT: specific question discussion

Is there a reason why in the Div II version of the tossup on m.a.a.d., the word acronym is out of power but in the div I version acronym is still in power?

Re: 2014 BELLOCO Specific Question Discussion

I'm pretty sure that the Yom Kippur War tossup was mentioned as being ended by the Camp David Accords. That was a very confusing moment, because the Yom Kippur War ended 5 years before the Accords were signed.
