of the different States of the Union to assemble in Musical Hall, of this city, on the 1st day of Feb. next, then and there to make such alteration in the existing laws of the Union as may ameliorate the evils under which the country is laboring, and thereby cause confidence to exist, both at home and abroad, in our stability and integrity...”
More words, from the editors
ere at KISS Intel, we believe strongly in participating in the curriculum review. KI is still a program in its formative years, and while it might be a good first draft, it could still use a good proof-reading (analogies, you guys!) typos. Help to create a degree that you can be proud of by participating in the curriculum review.

The Dalai Lama Saga- Finale
by: Bess Mitchell
he last thing I want to address on religion alone. Every point was is the second last key skill for supported with science, psycholcommunication - have compasogy, and religion. sion at all levels. Furthermore, not one religion The Dalai Lama is the politiwas exemplified. All were mencal head for Tibetan people, but tioned in equal importance. he is also their spiritual leader. I would like to end this reflecWhat was truly incredible about tion with the words the Dalai his speech was that not one apLama used to explain motivation, proach to world peace depended compassion, and love: • If you practice Christianity, Judaism, Islam, etc. o Here is your religion: GOD. o God reduces your self-centered attitude, encourages you to practice love and compassion and extend love to all creation.
an you guess who all is mashed up into this picture and which part belongs to who? Submit your answers to kissintel@gmail. com and get an even more epic picture than Kenzie kicking pizza photoshopped of yourself for next week’s paper. I mean, that picture is real.
• If you practice Buddhism o You believe in the Law of Causality: if you do something bad, you have a negative reaction. If you do something good such as act with love and compassion, you receive a positive reaction. • If you practice No Religion o You practice love and compassion anyways because you cannot neglect it. They are the basis of human happiness. Love and Compassion aren’t JUST for those with religion. No matter what faith we practice or rituals we perform, we as one human body are motivated by the same things: love and compassion. To promote unity we must act together with more compassion, and appreciate one another on a more fundamental level – as brothers and sisters.
I said it before, never in my life have I heard thirty thousand people so silent and attentive, but it was more than that. Never have I laughed with so many, cried with so many, and felt such a powerful hope like an electrical current running through all of us. Binding us together. Becoming, on a fundamental level, brothers and sisters.
Collaborative Culture, Collaborative Consumption by: Connor Turland
o time for dilly dallying, let’s get right into it. Our future is at stake. As I further my research into the emerging culture, many of the articles which seem significant to me have ties to futurism. The World Futurist Society is dedicated to the neutral exploration into possible, probable, and preferable futures for humankind and the planet earth. I think this is extremely important because it allows us to view the world with a broader scope of time, including the time which, in the relatively near future, the children of our generation will inhabit the Earth. What will we leave the planet looking like for them? It’s a question that’s important to me.
I want to start creating the future that I would like to live in, as well as the one that I would want for my descendants, today. But then, I have to know what I want. Well I have a pretty good idea. • I want to grow my own food, or to have it come from near me. • I want to have access to the wildness of nature. • I want people to think about design. • I want people to exercise their creative minds. • I want people to exercise honesty and transparency. These are things that I personally think could take us in only a healthy direction, and I intend to incorporate it into my own life as much, and as soon, as possible. Knowledge Integration is just one of the aspects that helps incorporate some of these values into our lives.

Kevin’s Seven Isaac Russell by: Kevin Rodrigues
ndie Folk singer/songwriter Isaac Russell is not a wellknown talent on the Columbia Records label, and it’s hard to understand why. Born in Lindon, Utah, this young artist has recently released a self-titled promotional EP to follow two recordings of
his debut album “Elizabeth.” Russell is a versatile talent reminiscent of a passionate Jason Collett, with his own flavour mixed in, who can easily catch you with the passionate guitar playing on a track like “Elizabeth” and then turn to a keyboard to play versions of songs like “Lighthouse”. His
perfect use of raspy vocals along with his great range and touch of soul makes for a great listen. Russell is a truly profound lyricist and surely one of those artists whose album you can listen to straight through and not be disappointed by a single song.
Playlist of the Week 1. Elizabeth – Isaac Russell 2. Streetlight – Joshua Radin 3. This Boy – James Morrison 4. Justin Nozuka - Heartless 5. Steal My Kisses – Ben Harper 6. Elias – Dispatch 7. Talking Bird (demo) – Death Cab for Cutie check out kissintel.tumblr.com for a link to this week’s playlist!
Cooking With Kenzie by: Kenzie Reid
arlic Fingers: a delicacy from the East Coast, and my favourite food. The secret to their deliciousness? Donair Sauce. Without it, they are just “Garlic Cheesy Bread”, a sad spectre of the real thing. Ingredients: • 2-3 cups grated mozzarella cheese • a pizza crust (buy a premade one, or make your own) • 1-4 garlic cloves (depending on how much you like garlic) • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk • 1/4 cup vinegar • (optional) powdered garlic Step 1: Peel the garlic cloves and crush them slightly. Rub them all over the pizza crust. You can also crush them in a garlic press afterward and sprinkle the garlic bits on the crust, or save the bits for the Donair Sauce.

Step 2: Take the grated cheese and sprinkle it on the crust, like you would if you were making a pizza. The amount in the ingredients is just a guideline – use as much or as little as you like! Step 3: Bake the garlic fingers in the oven on a baking sheet or pizza pan, according to the directions on the crust packaging or your crust recipe. They’re done when the crust is light brown underneath, and cheese is melting and bubbly, but not too brown on the top. Step 4: While the garlic fingers are baking, make the Donair Sauce. Mix together the sweetened condensed milk and the vinegar in a bowl – it will be really thin at first, and hard to mix the two together, but after a few minutes it thickens up. Add powdered garlic to taste, or the leftover garlic that you rubbed on the crust. Step 5: When the garlic fingers are done baking, slice them in half, then cut the halves into rectangles about 2 inches wide. Dip them in the donair sauce, and have a soft surface ready to catch you when you swoon.

Six word stories I
by: Po Bai’ibo
by: Devin Howard
n some grade in high school one of my English teachers introduced the idea of six word stories with the potent/chilling story For sale: baby’s shoes. Never worn.
Ever since I’ve liked the idea of six word stories but haven’t written too many. Then I checked out www. sixwordstories.net. Some are really good, but, as with mylifeisaverage and other sites like that, some were just meaningless references to Harry Potter. I’m all for Harry Potter, but at some point you need to be creative in your own right.
So here’s some 6 word stories about current world issues. Take that, Po Bai’ibo, whoever you are! • I once read Imprint in MC • It is not an online degree! • All cool things, like idea generation. • The grapefruit diet doesn’t work, son. • It’s a government cheque and invoice. • Until now, I’d never peed myself. • I told you it was hot. • Plagiarism’s a form of flattery, sir. • The chicken ate the elephant, sir.
