Times/Review Newsgroup is teaming up with The Press News Group of Southampton to co-sponsor a pair of 90-minute debates between Congressman Tim Bishop (D-Southampton) and Republican challenger Randy Altschuler of St. James, the two news organizations announced this week.

The first debate will be hosted by Times/Review at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 27, at Vail-Leavitt Music Hall in Riverhead. Suffolk Times editor Tim Kelly will moderate that debate, which will be broadcast live on riverheadnewsreview.com.

The first 45 minutes of the debate will focus specifically on health care reform, Mr. Kelly said, and then be opened to general questions.
The second debate is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 15, at Bridgehampton School. The first 45 minutes of that debate will focus on jobs and the economy.

The Bridgehampton debate will be moderated by Joe Shaw, executive editor for The Press News Group, publishers of the Southampton Press, Southampton Press Western Edition and Easthampton Press newspapers, as well as 27east.com.

“We’re very excited to be working together to give the public more than sound bites to make a decision in this important race,” Mr. Shaw said of the partnership with Times/Review. “Our goal is to allow the candidates to more fully explore the complicated issues and give voters an opportunity to cast an informed vote.”

Both debates will be free and open to the public.

Vail-Leavitt will seat up to 250 people on a first-come, first-served basis. Audience members will have an opportunity to submit questions for the candidates at both debates.

“With so much at stake, it’s impossible to overstate the importance of this race,” Mr. Kelly said. “We’re proud to be teaming up with our South Fork counterparts, The Press News Group, to bring the candidates and the issues to light.”

Technology advances and innovative developments have made it simpler to create reasonable and enjoyable games. All these entertainment video games were not as sensible when the real concept was being experimented with. Just like other kinds of technological innovation, video games too have had to grow by means of many years. This itself is testimony to the fast continuing development of video games.
