    So I'm working with the peer educators - a group of youth we've hired and trained at work - to do a 75 minute original workshop on race, gender and identity. They have to facilitate this workshop open to teens in the community to attend. So far, we've got an outline for the workshop with activities chosen by the youth they'd like to do.

    Now it's just helping them commit to the workshop and take it seriously...

    Will the teens be presenting the workshop at their high schools?

    Nope. We will be hosting the workshop at the clinic itself. We've got a mix of high school seniors and college freshmen this year as peer educators. It's fun to work with them.

    I usually try to keep my political views to myself. I will say with this year's presidential race, I've actually thought about the possibility of moving to a different country for the very first time.

    I've talked Android. And I'm still considering an Android device as a secondary phone. The Nexus 6P is still one that intrigues and piques my interest. If you asked me a couple years ago, it wouldn't be an option, but Android and the newer hardware that we've been seeing, have come a long way. They've become competitive (for my business) and a viable option.

    Took the case off of my 6S Plus to clean it this morning (after spilling a little bit of coffee on it in the car!) and was thinking "damnn I really like this phone without the case on it! I'm thinking about getting just a tempered glass screen protector for it and roll like that. It's so sleek and sexy feeling!

    If I lived in the US I'd want to leave the country too...

    Apparently there's been an influx of enquiries from US citizens to Canada Immigation for residency requirements... That's not a joke and shows there is a real issue in the US. However, if you all leave then the wrong person will get elected. My suggestion is to get more people out to vote to ensure the right person gets in... whoever that may be.

    As for Android phones, my personal experience so far has been good. Saying that I don't do anything too extreme with my phone. It has all I need and more.

    I think if development with Android N is going the way they think it is and becomes dual layered I think a lot of the issues that people have about Android will start to vanish. Optimization of the OS will make it really slick.

    It still has a way to go for audio though and music production.

    There's also a continuous shortage of hospitality staff here in the EU. Also medical and IT staff.

    The Nexus 6P is really nice. The only reason that I have not really looked at it as an option is because I really don't want a screen that large anymore. 5.5" is my cutoff and maybe the 950XL is the only one I'll make an exception for.

    Well, politically lite views are welcome here, which is what I meant.

    I agree, this presidential election has been the worst I've seen in a very long time in terms of the candidates that are running for office. All of them in my eyes are supremely flawed and unfortunately we're stuck with trying to pick the best of the worst to get elected. Maybe whoever gets elected would actually step up to the plate and do a good job, but honestly, I'm not seeing it. There are people who are too old establishment, people who are too anti-establishment, and people who have good ideas but don't know how to execute. If I could go live under a rock, make money, and pop my head out only to get food and pay taxes after this election is done, I certainly do it.

    I know I talk Android alot, but never really about the OS itself. I will say Google has done a nice job with their voice to text. I like the implementation on Windows too, but I feel I can talk for longer stretches that get recognized better on Android.

    I use cases most times, but the G4 is my first phone in a long time with just a tempered glass screen protector due to the great feel in hand for me with the leather back.

    There is a shortage here. If you have the ability to move here without needed sponsorship it's always easier. However, there's typically groups that go to the US and other countries trying to get qualified people to move to the UK.

    I've got to say, the core audio layer in iOS is right up there with the desktop class (Mac and PC).
