Speaking SASE's Language
"Sassy basics gartner coined the term. Sassy in the twenty nineteen hype cycle cloud security report deemed the future of network insecurity functions at the time sassy was just an emerging technology and there was barely a sassy product on the market. Uh sassy as defined by gartner quote combines network security functions with wayne capabilities to support. The dynamic secure access needs of organizations. These capabilities are delivered primarily as a service in based upon the identity of the entity. Real time context insecurity slash compliance policies. So essentially sassy is a new package of technologies including sdn secure web gateways cloud access security brokers zero trust network access and firewall as a service at abilities with the ability to identify sensitive data or malware and the ability to decrypt content at line speed with continuous monitoring of sessions for risk and trust levels and quote despite being new to the industry by summer. Twenty twenty multiple offerings were on the market and thanks to the flexible definition of sassy more on that later the offerings varied widely the shift. To sassy was here in cannot have come at a more urgent time. The covid nineteen pandemic and shift to remote work highlighted the need for infrastructure that supports flexible work options with secure remote access in. Sassy does just that sassy enabled enterprises to deliver secure networking insecurity more generally in a consistent way in a remote environment. But of course sassy is more complex than that says. He is a network architecture that merges wham capabilities with cloud native security functions these functions are provided as a service by sassy vendors though one emerging technology. Sassy isn't necessarily a new technology at all instead. It is a convergence of existing network. Insecurity technologies built around a single pass architecture. This allows for an efficient network that has the ability to inspect traffic. While in transit as the name suggests celsius two core components one the secure access to the service edge. The service edge refers to the edge principle functions are optimized by moving access and competing resources closer to individual users through the use of wide area networking or when the typically delivered through pops or points of presence close to the end points. Pops may be owned by vendors public clouds or a third party secure access refers to the use of cloud native security functions therefore security functions commonly used in sassy these are secure web gateways or s. Wg's cloud access security broker or caspi zero trust network access or z. Tna and firewall as a service or f. w. a. s. Let's dive a little deeper. Into each of these functions a secure web gateway prevents data breaches and cyber attacks by protecting data in enforcing security policies. They filter out unsafe content from network traffic and can block unauthorized user behavior. They can be deployed from anywhere. Making them a great option. For remote workforce's cloud access security broker platforms used various security functions from cloud hosted services is not a single technology instead. Many technologies fall under the caspi umbrella. Technologies under caspi include shadow. It discovery data loss prevention access control and others. Zero trust network access is a security model that has strict real time identification requirements for every individual trying to access resources within a private network whether they are in or outside the network permettre several different principles and technologies are used for zero trust architecture and finally firewalls a service this refers to firewalls delivered from the cloud. As you guessed it a service cloud firewalls block. Cyber attacks directed at cloud assets who various security capabilities like url filtering intrusion prevention and uniform policy management is creates a virtual barrier around cloud platforms infrastructures in applications with these functions at its core. Sassy can identify maur or sensitive data and decrypt content while continuously monitoring the session and assessing trust levels. All in real time since sassy in many cases utilizes sdn it is important to make the distinction between the two clear. Sdn's primary responsibility is to connect geographically distant offices and headquarters to each other. Security tools are usually located at offices in customer premises equipment and not an individual devices. Sassy on the other hand. Folks on connecting individual points efficiently and securely with an emphasis on the cloud as neal mcdonald distinguished. Vp analyst at gartner said in an interview with sgx central quote. The heavy lifting of sassy is performed in the cloud and quote part of the reason. Why the line between sassy. Sdn win gets muddled is because of inconsistencies within the industry has mentioned at the top of the episode sassy defined by gartner is quote a new package of technologies including st win s.

Showers and thunderstorms are likely as well. Strong to severe storms can't be ruled out with gusty winds and heavy rainfall. Temperature's dropping into the mid to upper seventies for overnight lows. Militant for scattered showers and thunderstorms for our Sunday morning could see a stray shower thunderstorm south east of the city in the afternoon, But most of us should look for decreasing cloud cover. Still, little on the human side is temperatures top out in the upper eighties, mostly clear Sunday night with lows in the upper sixties clouds increase on Monday that leads to a slight chance for isolated shower or thunderstorm in the afternoon with highs. In the low to mid eighties lower eighties are expected for highs here under mainly Claudia's guys on Tuesday. There's a better chance for some scattered showers and thunderstorms across the region as well. Partly sunny, inhuman on Wednesday a chance for hit miss showers and storms with highs in the mid to upper eighties.

There's a rather mouth of spit in the film wherein sink classes the lanes of England thick with Sergio as a result of cervo which is sort of true. I said she joined the other day. I fail save out with claimed boy psycho geography and has been claimed claimed by Nature Royce. And he's neither me neither is he's inimitably insofar as the word means anything. He is a historian in. I mean I think he is somebody who is writing the kind of history you said this right at the beginning Jesse that that the future that we can't write impartial objective. History it just. It doesn't work in a in a in a in a I mean you also said I love with pre laps area. The Pre Internet is a pre Internet book Before I ask final question before we wind up on just like to say to listeners. A few all fine fantasy about or a fan of the rings of Saturn in addition to grant Jeez film patients were we can also recommend we can also recommend the podcast curiously specific which is co hosted by our former guest. Lloyd Shepherd very much where they've attempted to visit various various locations. Of course like everyone does. He tries to walk parts of the rings of Saturn before discovering. They're not where they ought to be. But that's a very interesting testing podcast. Another thing always trying to crowbar into backlist is I failed this time to get clip in but I would strongly recommend if you like say about and especially if you like the rings of Saturn Patrick Kayla's films London Robinson in-space Robinson in ruins Robinson in space in particular which I think he's ninety seven so there was clearly something in the air the idea of a unforgetable historic geography so full state of the nation travelogue but in film film rolling the phone. I cannot recommend that highly enough. That is a core text. So we've talked about say about work doc. Taken as a whole and it is very rich in clearly. If you read one book an IT will lead to another book. He has themes that he comes and goes from. We've discussed some of those. What is it about the rings of Saturn that he's unique if it is unique? What is the thing about this particular book that speaks the people I mean I think is honestly the closest to to a perfect but feels as though it is so complicated so many things in it but a single whole anti like one of those very very complicated cabinets that are so beautifully made that you can't see the joins and it absolutely extraordinary ordinary? I think it's not sense that this one entire sought. Yes that is being given to you and it is a gift and you can spend your life on it and you should read it multiple times and some of those times you straight at cafe and some of them you should just let it usually sort of sweep over you you think. Hang on reading about and paintings. Now we're reading about silicon. I don't know how that happened. But that's fine. That's okay fit what she thinks. Which is why it's good to read it with opium running through your face? Because it is long dream as Jesse so beautifully put and and he talked about his work as being a knowledge just taking taking his dog for a walk at a Black Labrador. And letting the office leash in a field and sniffs in one corner sniffs in another corning comes back with this kind of composite image of the field the sort of nothingness. The book is about when you've tried to describe the book we've spent Ninian out talking about this but we still haven't got anywhere near near near the beauty the transcendence the funniness sexuality the wrote ISM The depths the shallowness the you know when I feel so pleased I say to someone. Have you read the rings a satin. It's like I'm giving you an orgasm. John I seem to remember that page publishing. I you touch on something. What I feel about this book is that there is no country? There is no such thing as England. There is no such thing as Great Britain that it's the most European but but it's not even the Europe it's the world if there isn't a book I now that is has rich and yet you go into the stuff that you've forgotten and yet none of it. None of it's heavy is the miraculous book. It's like a tortoise. When you're inside it seems like it contains everything and then you kind of competitive again? You realize it's ten sections and he does that brilliant thing of describing them in the beginning of the book so it sounds like Oh yeah. That's kind of yeah. I can see the shape or what but it is amazed. You know you get lost in this book you get you get lost in every time you go. The maze the Cross section of which he compares to his own right. Right is a book about the world. But it's also it feels like it's a book about yourself oneself. Everyone else is like someone saying saying it's okay it's is. It is a sad thing to be a person and that is right for all of us and time time and that childish sense of curiosity as well. Everything is still there to be discovered.

Can we talk a bit about the formal boom. Oh Innovative Nature of cyberspace work specifically the photographs. I think I'm writing saying the we're very familiar now with photographs. Being dropped into the text of books. This this is one of the first. I mean if this was all about her dumb we'd still be thinking about him and talking about him but the idea of dropping photographs which either do or don't comment on what you're reading and May or may not relate to one another seems to me incredibly bold save out as not Reuter Reuter and Artists Simultaneously Camberley early Cedar where Limbaugh he talks about. And that's that's the book that quite often in connection with this he also it's also sort of war. What where it's very hard to classify philosophy will memoir and he will say kind of it's very women and he will say fighter graph? He talks about the more directly exactly as Vita graphs and the tax. And it's also I mean it goes back to alter Benjamin think does know what Benjamin Talks About Images Mitch's and the power of them and what's really interesting I think is actually what you say and Israeli to turn Jesse is actually. That's why this book appeals to Contemporary Temporary Artists who works people like tested deemed for instance. Max talked about Echo space. which is the space where the words stop on the pitcher takes over? So are you reading it like a caption are you. Eating is that part of this narrative becomes suddenly becomes visual and also by an act of fraudulent showmanship. As he set not some fake. Some the mistake he was. I mean John you better than I but he was a regular visits to the coffee shop in Norwich he'd get a perfectly good voice vice growth and then this is my favorite because you get back from people who wanna the photo so shit because Max wants them to be like. They're I so powerful that on that Sunday morning when opened the Independent on Sunday on page two I saw a picture of Max and his death announced construct. I mean it. Just because the way he deals with Barbara fee and people the way he you know like Roger Casement the way he talks about Roger. casement these are these are people who are shifting through time and space in his head and that sense of what's featuring what's non-fictional about people's lives and even when he's talking about the nurses in the first chapter and Ospel and he's talking you bet Katie and lizzy. He's a very generous to the Katya Lizzy was describing a holiday on multiple. She said the Maltese with a death defying Susan's quite renowned comprehension. Drove neither on the left nor of the right but always on the shady side of the Road Ganesha. Just even a little stitched in. We've got to live here now. Wow this is quite a long clip. But I wanted to include the whole thing because Cybele is speaking here without notes He's asked about photography and then he develops his thoughts while he's talking and I thought it was really for anyone who's read say about you know the idea of great rises ices some great rices rights as they talk when you hear them talk they have the cadences which you're familiar with. When I think you may recognize this yes? I'm not entirely sure that I'm able to make sense out of you. Know whatever come across at all except and the effort of recording it so Whatever sense there is is primarily an esthetic sense and I realized that making in Perot's a decent pattern out of what happens to come? Your way is A preoccupation with which in a sense has no higher ambitions really and then for a brief moment in time to rescue something something out of that stream of history that keeps rushing past. This is my I have among other reasons by have photographs us into takes because the photograph is perhaps the paradigm of it. The photograph is meant to get lost. Somewhere in a box in an attic is an a nomadic thing that You know has a small chance only to survive and I think we all know that that feeling you know when we come accidentally across a photographic document being of one of our lost relatives being of a totally unknown person and we get the sense of appeal this stepping out having been found by somebody not after decades or half-centuries having been found by somebody all of a sudden they come stepping back over the threshold and they say a waiver here two months and please take care of us for awhile would also Singson. 'cause goosebumps I don't know about you. I find that incredibly interesting moving significant listening to that the idea of rescue and a photograph some of these things living having a separate life look after Christmas for awhile. That's the thing that's the Cybele the idea that this see I mean he he again. Precision is the thing Philip. I happen to know that your book spy Khan and was read by Max wasn't it. Yeah it must have been you and did you send it in what is somewhat sent. It was to yeah and then this arrives in the past my suburban house in Southampton and I'll put it out and there's a postcard of painting -eckognize it's Pu Sans Mirage and I'm not going to be because it's it's embarrassing. You were thrilled. Yeah I was thrilled. Yes so I got a series of postcards this is even more embarrassing. I'm not going to read it. You know I'll give you a copy of it around his handwriting as you can see. It's like it's sort of almost renate wants this script. I know that this is a German school thing. A friend of mine. Who is his territory android? They had this very interesting. But doesn't it speak to him and it's all good wishes ever yours. Max this is a man nine of America and that was dated ninth of September two thousand and one. I'm Jesse can I ask you do. Do we think of say about as a writer in translation when we read. I mean I I don't I you keep having to remind myself as I'm reading is but then I almost feels like that sort of a part of it that that this idea that it's a text which is kind of interpreted or or the the words are not necessarily that they're not the was he kind of I wrote or spoke myself. That's a part of the book this idea of kind of true tracing things backwards tracing them through and sometimes my German his terrible. Sometimes I thought I could learn it just to read this and I'm and then I'm sure that tracing it back in that way society I feel what the pros exists. It almost in a European into he isn't quite. It's good English while at the same time being wonderful English. Yeah it has a precision which we as English Reuters Reuters would would not be so pumped Ilias about I think I think but then it's so hard isn't it to to define what is makes voice voice Voice Phillip. When I did actually say him earn read? He refused to read in English. Anthea Bell Reading in English translator translate I mean he was very very particular obviously in the in the translation. His English was perfectly good enough for him to written. It's almost like he wanted the active the translation that the actor translates very so polity and thing but on the whole I think it is possible to translate books at Liberal Lab Mich makes as valuable for the fallen reader as for the reader of the original language translators have to be extremely accomplished ashed and there are such people. Fortunately were able to do this. Why don't I translate my own books? Well the main reason is that I started started writing relate in my mid forties and got the time because I can already see the horizon looming and so you know And I have another full time Job to attend to and so becoming a translator as well as a writer I think would overtax tax probably my nervous system so I thought I better not do it son quite apart from the fact that I don't entirely trust my English I mean I can. That is a great difference. You know if you get a poor draft of a text and if you're reasonably competent in the second language then then you can perhaps improve on that draft but that is not the same as doing the draft yourself in the first place and so but you know sometimes Too incompetent people can make a competent pair. I just like to point out In a rather sad but very say belden moment that was recorded two months before say about death in New York in September two thousand and one which is that. That's around the time they'll speak. What's really interesting is that the distance is physical and he's a German German in exile his Thomas Mann and when Thomas Mann left Europe in nine hundred thirty nine south from Southampton and he announced that German culture is moving to America the duration? And I've just read Dr Faustus Man's book fastest which is mentioned in the natural history of destruction because man is writing from one remove looking in Germany which is not experiencing where he experienced the rise of that regime but he is writing from the Pacific Palisades ascites on Venice beach looking through a palm trees to muscle beach where these Tad Zeros the. But he's lusted after this sense of looking back through the past as it's happening at this devastated land this thing that is never written about. That's the thing that's never really written about livings of Satin it. It is and it. Isn't that sense of this. Always something absence to be filled in his creative language but isn't that because of that distance since it's the physical distance of his removal from something he can't come to terms with because he's the son of an inner a German Vermont officer and because he can't can't come to terms with what the Germans date to other people in. That's true in Doctor Faustus. In Man's writing he can't come to terms because he his it's own people haven't been able to come to terms with what was done to them in turn. This seems to me. I don't know how you feel about this. In in the loss of exactly that security the emigrants. He writes about a series of people who kill themselves. Yeah no senna grand hand gesture but anyway because the process that you've discussed a nation can we lived with for so long and no longer and certainly that opening chapter the immigrants which is probably only twenty pages. Anyone who's read that will never eat. Never Forget it. I mean you feel when you come to the first chapter of this book that the narrator because it's important to say one of the things about this book is that the narrator is an isn't maximum about and is ability to inhabit other voices and other other. Oh the consciousness through this book is one of the things but you feel that he when he says that about the dog star and summer that the old superstition that certain ailments the spirit of the body are particularly likely to possess under the sign of the Dog Star at all events. In retrospect I became preoccupied. Not only with the unaccustomed sense of freedom but also with the paralyzing horror that had come over me at various times when confronted with the traces of destruction and reaching far back into the past there were evident even in that remote place you feel. He's succumbing to some of the some of the same kind of melancholy inward-looking destructive stuff that has that has led to the death of the people in the immigrants and his journey his pilgrimage. which isn't a word that he used about what the book was a religious journey for him and can concerned with death concerned with in the end? The passage the amazing final paragraph of the book with the Silk on the things in the leaving amazing except that in the timescale of the book that section in the hospital happens off after although the book takes you on that journey. That's always the sense that his journey a writer is towards this hospital and isn't mentioned again but looms in your that have mine does. He's already put the not so happy ending to the frontier. So the beginning of the rings a sat and finally finished a book on the way here say say belly and because the rings of Saturn starts with him saying I had just finished. He's at liberty he's striding out on this wall you'll never liberty you all your your set free to find something else to enclose you. I actually did get beat him the final time and and and he was just just that walrus moustache nicotine stained. Here's going out for a quick fag APP solved outside the festival.

"That's so great about it. You look at this map that he's made and you think but that's not my experience experience of reading the book at all and when you were both reading your sections bad one of the things. I've found difficult about say about which now I love of course is rather like the Pizza Venos- music we heard at the top. There is a almost you can't discern how one part has been bolted onto another. There's a drift of imagery and ideas which keeps it's going it's not it appears incredibly like it's wandering around thinking of things degree of structure just in the first chapter of and you notice.

Then he moves to the anatomy lesson and amazing bit. where he he sees again? Things Komo Limonov movements from shadow to light shadow to like all the way through the chat he alone sees that the greenish annihilated body. He alone sees the shadow in the half open mouth.

His invention from our collective history from the past from the future from the present doesn't and to me it's the inexorable movement towards the shore as you intimate in that region and the sense of this place this land which she's tipping into the ocean.

"One thousand nine hundred ninety eight but before four. We wonder off towards Suffolk Gym. What have you been reading this week? Well seems to be the week for most pieces. I'm being reading a book. Uh has blown me away I expected it to be good but I don't think I expected to enjoy it in quite the way I did. It is Lasana the years by any other no French writer. Fantastic League prize-winning reputation in this book. I think she won the Prix Reynoso France and the primary striker initially and in two thousand seventeen. She was awarded the Mongering USA Prize. For Life's work is kind of an autobiography and I say they kind of an autobiography. Because we're about to talk about the man who dissolves boundaries between genres nothing. I've read in recent in times has done that as well as any has done. Here is a memoir that is stretches from sixty years from nineteen forty two now and what she does us in a very different way from. Let's say George Perak Y- Jamaa suvi-anne remember but similar in the way that it's a bricker Lage House of sensual memories of brand names of also technology starting off with with with writing and going right through to there's a very funny the playing on the Nintendo we with grandchildren. So it's a it's an attempt to write a genuinely the kind of meaningful autobiography without falling into the usual traps. She says towards the end of the book that by retrieving the memory of collective memory in an individual individual memory she will capture the lived dimension of history so it's incredibly ambitious and yet it works like a dream at one level. You can read it as a sort of race through sixty years of French culture and and the development of a of a of a human beings most alive intellectual life spiritual chill life but also. It's everything going around or it's a really really really profound book and how long is exquisitely translated. Its lobby is two hundred twenty. Five English pages is exquisitely translated Alison. Strayer he's a Canadian translator. I mean I I don't read. My French isn't good enough to read it anything but haltingly. I'm going to read you a very small passage from say Ortega gasset but all we have is our history and it does not belong to us all the twilight images. Lots of the book is Remember Photograph Finding Photographs and remembering the moments all the twilight right images of the early years the pools of light from a summer Sunday images from dreams in which the dead parents come back to life and you walk down indefinable. Unable roads the image of Scotto Hara dragging the Yankee soldier. She has just killed up the stairs then running through the streets of Atlanta in search of a doctor for Melanie who was about to give birth of molly bloom who lies next to her husband remembering the first time a boy kissed her and she said Yes. Yes yes of Elizabeth Drummond murdered with her parents on a road in lure in one thousand nine hundred eighty two the images real or imaginary that follow us all the way into sleep the images the moment bathed in a light that deserves alone they will all vanish at the same time like the millions of images that lay behind the foreheads of the grandparents grandparents dead for half a century and of the parents also dead images in which we appeared as a little girl in the midst of beings who died before we were born just as in our own memories are small children there next to our parents and schoolmates. One day we will appear in our children's memories among their grandchildren and people not yet born like sexual desire memory never stops it. Has the dead with the living real with imaginary beings dreams with history about property. That's good. I mean it's how this fits corral published brilliantly in the chorale though as as a memoir but it is interesting and stimulating book. I've read all year and now Wendy. What have you been reading So I've been reading a lot of poetry this year as regular listeners will be aware and I read a book two weeks ago which is as good as any poetry that I've read this year from any era and I was GonNa talk about this book anyway And then it was shortlisted for the T S Eliot Prose Roy poetry and we go and then a couple of days ago from when we were recording won the forward prize for Poetry for best collection. And I don't tell you that listeners As a way of saying off my my is pretty good. I tell you because it's almost self evident when you read Vertigo and ghost just by Fiona Benson that you are reading. He's probably going to be thought of as a classic and I wouldn't say that lightly just as I don't use phrases like I couldn't put it down lightly I do think this has the makings of a classic certainly engages with our current historical moment there are two parts to this collection. The first of which re channels the Greek myths this of Zeus as a transformative power in twos use as it says here on the jacket flap as a serial rapist. For whom women are pray and sex is weaponized It is extremely distressing thing. Funny Clever I I almost want to say I like it despite the framework brainwork if the Greek myths because as the owner Benson's has said she was slightly worried the greet me using the myths would cushion. The blow would put the scaffolding or a fence around the things that she wanted to rise about at. It's a mark of the brilliance of this That ah that doesn't happen and be. I am not entirely comfortable with reading out. Most of the first half of the book here on the podcast I urge you to read it. It's one of the most dramatic and affecting things that I have read this year. Poetry or not in the second half of the book look it becomes a intimate and moving document about family life and I think depression and I'm going to read a poem from late in the sequence called hide and seek. And what I I would say to you As this has some upsetting stuff in it so you might want to go forward a few minutes about two minutes but I think this is a remarkable piece of work hide and seek ofter her swim. I wrap my child warm and take her to the changing room and and lay her down to draw. She holds the corners of the towel over her face like a soft turquoise tent and yells heighten seek hide and seek I lift an edge and shout boo and she shrieks with laughter. I can feel the heat rising from her the body and smell the chlorine she hides again and again. I Peek under and she's beside herself with happiness. She's at an age where she thinks. Except if she just stands still in the middle of the law and I will not see her. Somehow she's gone but always in the pockets. What's behind this game? There is this residue this constriction families squeezed behind full S- walls pulls or hidden under the floor. I think of the soldier sensing the Hulo under his soul and prying up the board on all all those cramped and flinching humans. But mostly I think of the mothers. Their hearts jumping out of their mouths trying to push their children my firstborn now who's never been able to do as she's told how she'd have r-revised and screamed and and bitten like a cat. If I tried to hold her quiet how I'd have hurt her clamping her mouth trying to keep her still. The trap door is always opening. The women and children are herded into the yard and I asked myself if when my daughters were pulled from from me I would fight and scream to keep them or let them go gently knowing there was nothing to be done. If we you were pushed into the showers. Would I pretend it was only time to get them clean. We are not meant to right of the show. We who were. We're not there but on bad days it's all I can think of. The mothers trying to shield their children with their bodies under the showers screaming screaming for mercy begging for rain and it's never over here. The children riding to the border in fridges as the air becomes hot and thin their tiny bodies glowing like bright sardines on the custom offices. Hand held scan and and here is the tribesmen carrying your husband's genitals and a bloody machete and you are a mother running. Fueled life with with a baby tied to your back and two children by the hand but one small son is falling behind. Jesus fucking fucking Christ. I don't know who I'm teaching you to hide from. But look how eagerly you learn.

"WG y. So there's some weird. Christmas miracle going on is weird science, and that's been happening for a while. But this year is truly astounding moron trivia, which we've played for years. Pat plays now on his program, Pat gray joins us from Pat gray unleashed. And was right again. This weekend is thirteen and two now. Thirteen and two and this weekend. It predicted the eagles win over the eleven to Los Angeles Rams in Los Angeles. Now, we're thirteen and a half point underdogs. I believe Stu, even you didn't think the eagles. Never gonna win any games. But that was really amazing. I mean 'cause we did more trivia cut it together on on Friday. I'm Pat gray unleashed. And I was I of course, rooting for the eagles button is we went off the air pets like look. This is going to be the the biggest test of more trivia of all time. Like the eagles were not supposed to win that game backup quarterback yet again with Nick foles. Loyd underdogs and one and one. So let me ask you, do you. Remember, we've played this for twenty years. Yeah. Twenty years almost and well we played thirty years ago almost. Yeah. We were playing. And it has it's it's always like this. It's always like this. And there are times where like that. When we first started playing it that we would go K. There's no way the eagles are gonna win and we'd be deep in a season. And we'd say let's want to protect the record. Right. And so we're like let's throw up. We've only done that a couple of times because every time that happens. It's wrong. Every time you can't miss with the professional wrestling perfectionist trivia, seriously. You can't can't when you do your on. So what is that? What are the odds that this randomly happened? One of our listeners calculated the odds, and you know, I'm not smart enough to actually do the math on this. But he did he said it was a point zero three seven percent chance that this would randomly. I mean, it happens like this over and over and over again, mostly we should go back and look because don't we we have the website. We have a listening more on. It was shut down for a while. I don't know if it's backup. I think it might be backup. They were going to give it back up this year. Okay. So. It should have the record. And it's it's usually girl record would be pretty impressive. I think this is one of the better years, but you guys have done fifteen one in the past right? Yes. Didn't that happen on your? Yeah. There's been a couple of years like that. But this is definitely one of the best of all is incredible. And really what was amazing. We did it for fifteen probably straight years, and we've had some interruptions here and there, but every year I believe except for maybe one was over five hundred. So they weren't all fifteen into type of ears. But a lot of them were you know, ten and five if you would have placed money just all more trivia, you would have made a lot of money. You want to made a fortune you'd make a fortune especially betting against the spread like the Friday like like this weekend's game. And you'd never know you never had. We've had a great record with more on trivia for decades. And I've never heard a listener say, yeah, I put money down on. Yeah. Somebody did this weekend. They want some money on it. Someone said they wanna based on this. Yes. They just got to the point where bet on it. And they think they made this week at one hundred and twenty five dollars. They said now again like if you did. Money line want anybody to you know, really put anything on the line. There's no there's this crazy. More on magic cap. Coming up, you can make it figure out how much you have to put down to get that mortgage payment and on results. That's where I am at this point. After that game. I am I'm willing to go down that. Yeah. Crazy. I may not be adviser money. I'm going into that game had to be seven seven or eight to one for the eagles to win that had to be thirteen point five points is the point spread like they're saying. Well, we'll eagles get they'll probably lose by about fourteen to win the game. You can get one hundred and win seven hundred or eight hundred and I mean, that's pretty amazing. Pretty amazing that on tribute to win a hundred and twenty what did you maybe twenty bucks or something it probably about twenty bucks? Someone one twenty five something like that a bad return on your. Listener. And this is what we do for listeners, which is rich in you..

"WG y. here. This is handle on the law. Marginal legal advice. Hey, Chad, welcome to handle on the law. Okay. Yes. Yeah. That's how it works. You asked me a question. I tried to answer it. Okay. Very good. Okay. Here's my situation. I have a a bolt in front of my house from Edison. It's in the ground. It's roughly about ten feet long ten feet deep and about eight feet wide. I have one of those two. Yes. Okay. It has two large electrical transformers in there. I live by the water. And what happens is this ball every time. They open the cover up which is about every year because of the transformers short out when they open it up. Not only does is filled with water. But when they up it out, they also pump out tons and tons of dirt. What's happened is over the years, my front patio as sunk and cracked and the wall the retaining wall runs across the front of my property is also thinking. So what's happened is I called out a Senate, and they kind of gave me the run around. I called my insurance company who sent out a bunch of people, and they did a old survey of the property to find out whether there were any leaks at my property from anything other than this. And basically the all attribute the problem to Edison with this. Well, now what happens is when they pump it out. Of course it, but because the ties run up and down there's a lot of pressure on this thing, and it basically act like a toothpaste tube. And it's weasels out the dirt from under by patio directly into the wall. Okay. Is there a fixed? I I know Edison's denying. I mean that that's a given. They're gonna say it's not their fault. No matter. What I do. I go from here. Okay. First of all, let me ask Zahra fix for this. Yes, there is upset and what is the thing. Okay. The sexes and things. One day. We have to put in large footings under the front wall, right goes across the patio. They also have to put tears in underneath my patio. Keep the patio from moving, and then they can re read surface the patio which in turn goes down to the street. So it's have you had you how much that's going gonna cost. Well on the cheap. It's about twenty five thousand on the high. It's about a hundred and fifty thousand is. So you've got a real issue on your hands because you're going to be going up against Edison electric who were going to deny like crazy. So the first thing you have to do is go to a lawyer obviously to sue Edison because they're not gonna just roll over. Absolutely not. So you've got a problem on your hands. Because even though it looks it sounds like you have a case. The problem is getting to the point where it's going to be fixed by Addison, even if it's their fault. These what happens with any any one of these municipal agencies is they come to the table. And they fight it tooth and nail. Whether it's their fault or not they don't care. So I the first thing I would do is contact your city council person and see if there's any help there. And then you show the reports. Now, you have you have all the reports in your hands showing that that's the only possibility correct? Well, yes, I mean, they they brought in an independent, right? But you have. But they wouldn't allow eligible wouldn't allow them in the rope. Oh, that's interesting. Then what you have to do is you have to go to the city council people. And if they're not gonna help you in Edison says we're gonna fight it because they are separate agencies city council is really not connected with Edison. It's a separate municipality where it's a quasi independent agency. You're gonna have to simply sue them. And that's the tough part. That's the whole thing. I don't want to invest Andre. I know you're not gonna it's not gonna be one hundred thousand dollars. But I don't know where where else are you gonna go? I mean, you you hold gonna hold a shotgun to someone's head. I mean, the only way you make you make a claim, right? You file a claim? They're going to say, no, you are going to then go to the appeals process through Edison. They're going to say no that it's not their fault. They've done those tanks. All right. So now, the only choice you have is to hire a lawyer. There's no there's no other way. I can't think of any other possible avenue here. It's just one of those things where you just really get screwed. I mean screwed. All right, Brian. Yes. Yes, sir. What can I do for you? Okay. I'm in the middle of a two year. Lease I live in a back house. I'm renting I got a visit from code enforcement code enforcement came in. And they said that we couldn't have our stove because the back house was forty something too. Big. So what that means is it's supposed to be zoned as a duplex. A duplex code enforcement came back to inspect with the landlord. We passed inspection the the landlords intention was he told me you wanted to after the inspection put the stove back in. And I told him that. I wasn't okay with that. Because I didn't want to not in compliance, right? And I did and I didn't want my renter's insurance to be. Void if something were to right, which is exactly what would happen. Yes. Good for you. And so what's your question? So my question is is my lease unenforceable. Yes. It is. It's not enforceable. Okay. Disappeared the day you had your stove removed and couldn't use it anymore based on a a code violation. The least disappeared. Okay. One more quick one so code enforcement when they were there. They said they looked at me, and they looked at him. I mean say look we're going to go back, and we're gonna make a couple more determinations. One determination is we're going to determine whether or not this house is habitable now that the stove has been removed and the second thing they were going to determine whether or not the landlord could even collect rent because of zoning I wonder if you I saw you don't wanna pay anymore rent at all right now. Okay. You're done with rent because you have a house is not habitable anymore. You can't cook. You have. No stove. Right. Right. So bloom it's done. And yeah, you're living at how effectively you're living in our hotel room. Can't cook. So I would not I would not for a moment.
