I think BGP is the only odd one out that requires you specify the mask and not the wildcard.

2 points · 5 hours ago

It's not really the odd-one-out if you consider the network statement for BGP is selecting a network in the route table to advertise, where the network statement for IGPs is matching interface addresses to enable the protocol on. Same command, very different purposes.

Now you got me thinking. What happen if you specified the subnet from the routing table but used a different mask?

That is really close minded in my humble opinion.

Not to be mean, but I really have to question the competence of a “Senior Firewall Engjneer” who thinks that Cisco Security is both irrelevant and just about ASA cli. Especially since he mentions the Palo Alto certs which just test on Palo Security firewall offerings and their cli/web ui.

Cisco’s Security portfolio is the most end to end in the industry. They have everything from firewalls (duh!) to email security, to DNS Security, to end to end encrypted traffic analysis (very cool!). Firepower took the ASA from a legacy network centric firewall to within the top 3 solutions in the industry.

Cert wise the topics are router and switch security, web and email security, wireless security, VPNs and the routing associated with it, ASA/Firepower, AAA and 802.1x , and even some SDN and more advanced topics in the higher levels. The Cyber Ops track also adds Operation Center skills like tracking and reporting issues. Compare to Palo Alto and their certs focus entirely on how to use their firewalls, which is expected because Palo just has a few product types.

The point being that a CCNP Security can easily figure out Palo and work around their quirks but a Palo Alto PNCSE is necessarily going to be able to figure out a Cisco ISE server since there is no skill overlap.

The guy mentions that skills like ansible and scripting are more useful. Sure it is an expected skill set for an engineer to have but as I say “you still need to understand how to use BGP in order to script it so make sure you master your fundamentals”

I’m fine with the rest of what he says though I would say strong Infrastructure and networking skills are more than a plus but a requirement to climb the security ladder.

Thanks for the sharing!

To say that you dont need feminism because of the equal rights you have today is to say you can keep your umbrella in a rainstorm because you are no longer wet anymore. To be a "strong empowered wamen with equal rights" owes a lot to the previous generations who fought for it and helped enshrine it into law. There are still plenty of old powerful men, especially religious men who still pine for the "good old days" and will besmirch you for not settling down to be a good wife and mother

Actually it's more akin to deciding not to bring your umbrella with you when you go out because umbrellas (or shelters) are widely available everywhere you go at no cost. Feminism has become so successful in the West that the people who identify as feminist today champion political correctness in speech and exaggerated notions of the "patriachy" to make themselves appear relevant.

Even half of millennial western women (the most liberal type you can imagine) don't consider themselves feminist and they explain very well why:

One 31-year-old Independent said the feminist movement has devolved from a movement fighting for women’s rights, to one that instead is about making men inferior to women. “I do consider myself for women's rights, equal rights,” she told Refinery29. “I don't want to seem anti-feminist. I'm not — I'm anti-man bashing. If we lower ourselves as women, just to say men can't do things or they shouldn't or the man should work harder for the same goals women have … how is that equal?”

For Malina, a 34-year-old Latina and Democrat, feminism today focuses too much on nitpicking "over the tiniest politically incorrect commentary" and not enough on America's lack of family policies. She also believes that the current wave of feminism still overlooks issues that affect women of color. "I find that feminists are typically white women, and I am not that and therefore I do not feel included and cannot relate," Malina told Refinery29. "As a woman of color, I deal with racism way more than any gender discrimination issues.” Malina’s experience might explain why young white women are slightly more likely (48%) to identify as feminist than women of color (44%).

There are similar numbers elsewhere Only 7 per cent of Britons consider themselves feminists

Only 18 percent of Americans consider themselves feminists

To take the analogy of umbrellas and shelters, people are now asking have we overbuilt shelters to the extent where it results in negative externalities such as not being able to see the sky or let the sunlight in?

In the Boson ex-sim it will let you place authentication on an HDLC serial(it does not say no). Also you can swap to PPP, enter ppp auth chap, swap back to HDLC and it will still show in running config.

Just tried it on GNS3. They do not allow "ppp auth chap" without ppp encap enabled. Even if you changed to ppp encap, then ppp auth chap and then "no ppp encap"/"encap hdlc" the "ppp auth chap" disappears from running-config.

I guess this just shows you the limitations of simulators. Every possible scenario has to be thought of, so that's why sometimes the exams disable "show run" so they won't have to consider the impact of those nuances.

Best if a Boson rep comments on this, though.

My fan canon is that when Kylo is talking to Vader's helmet in TFA and monologuing about how conflicted he is about the light and the dark and stuff, he's actually having a conversation with Anakin's force ghost, and Anakin is the one trying to convince Kylo to go back to the light side.

That's a pretty good fan theory. It was Anakin's ghost pulling him to the light all along.

I started using GNS3 these past few weeks in preparation for my ICND2. I passed ICND1 only using packet tracer and feel it helped tremendously in becoming familiar with the environment. However, for ICND2 I was recommended to start using GNS3 because of the emphasis on routing protocols. So far, GNS3 feels a lot more modifiable than PT but my only issue is the lack of switch features like port security and vlan creation on GNS3. It appears you are unable to type this commands or the syntax may be different.

You have to find the L2 switch image to make that work. I was able to do everything except L3 switch in GNS3 without getting the GNS3 VM to run.

Not true. They defined desirability not just by number of messages received but also by whether the sender themselves are desirable. So this means if a 50 year old guy got a lot of messages from "undesirable" older women he would rank lower than a 35 year old who got messaged by fewer but younger and more desirable women. http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/4/8/eaap9815

However, desirability is not only about how many people contact you but also about who those people are. If you are contacted by people who are themselves desirable, then you are presumptively more desirable yourself. A standard measure of this reflected desirability is PageRank (17). Here, we calculate PageRank scores for the populations within each of our four cities (see the “Network analysis” section) and then rank men and women separately from least to most desirable. A scaled rank of 1 denotes the most desirable man or woman in a city by our measure, and 0 denotes the least desirable.

"The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel."

This is especially prevalent with social media today where everyone's highlight reels are very self-evident and stories of extremely successful young entrepreuners spreads very quickly.

One should not entirely dismiss the feeling either. Have a plan for how you want to grow or develop and work towards it. Track your progress.

Believe it or not bariatric divorce is a thing. People are entitled to their own changing preferences. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-obesity-surgery-relationships/weight-loss-surgery-tied-to-increases-in-divorces-marriages-idUSKCN1HA2G6

If anything perhaps its the idea that love means commitment to another regardless of how they change thats unrealistic to begin with.

I’m so not surprised to see that is a phenomenon. It seems like so many people see marriage as an excuse to let themselves go. I understand approaching someone about the problem and discussing ways to change but at a certain point, they might not be the same person you fell for.

There are only multiple choice questions even for simlets. However to answer them they require you to memorise the various show commands, enter them and know how to read the output.

Oh yes there is, I missed that. There are no questions which require explicit configuration but you may have MCQs which ask "Given this setup, what are the commands to configure this"? and a list of config to choose from.

Just a reminder that Hillary Clinton was the most popular politician in the country and polled very well in foreign countries, too. This myth that she wasn't a strong candidate needs to die. There were many factors that contributed to her loss. We cannot ignore that character assassination was absolutely a part of it.

You're citing a poll from 2013 to claim she was popular when it actually mattered? Clinton was second worst when it came to favourability ratings by mid 2016 when she was actually running for president. https://news.gallup.com/poll/197231/trump-clinton-finish-historically-poor-images.aspx

If it was due to "character assassination" by Russian trolls and hackers, which everyone has heard of by now, why hasn't her popularity recovered by now? It has only gotten worse. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/04/18/hillary-clintons-popularity-has-plunged-since-election-poll-finds.html

To be fair Obama did say dumb things too like rednecks clinging to gods and guns vote GOP. But he came off as a far more earnest candidate than Clinton in 2008. Remember when Clinton agreed with Obama pre-Iowa that states moving up their primary calendar without DNC approval should be punished.

It took a few months after she won Michigan and Florida for her to flip and argue that that delegates from both states should count.

https://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/12/us/politics/12cnd-delegates.html

I am totally unsurprised at her unpopularity. History has shown that even terrible presidents get rated better over with time, like George W Bush. If they decide to run for office again, however, all bets are off because voters will re-assess them.

Sims can absolutely be dumped (and are). "Hey, if you get the OSPF sim with four routers in a diamond shape, you need to issue these commands..."

Even worse, sims are hard to program, so they don't change often... even after the exams have gone through a version number change, the sims have stayed the same for YEARS.

Then, imo, what's the problem? These same people are the ones who have trouble relating to the commoners in SG with their money troubles, etc (ofc, not all of them). You don't get a minister who relates to the poor and dish out policies for them. If they truly were keen on finding, I'm sure there will be these good candidates who are all for the country and are willing to take a pay cut.

You don't necessarily have to live like a commoner to relate to them. People like Ted Kennedy and Bernie Sanders in the US are rich, but are also known to push policies which benefit the poor.

The key question is why let executive compensation limit their choices for candidate recruitment? If a company has decided that his CEO is worth $8M, it means they have determined that he has the strategic outlook and knowledge to justify paying him that much.

Have you seen how large MNCs recruit their CEOs from other companies? They don't start by thinking "if we are truly keen on finding, we will be able to find good leaders willing to take a big paycut and still be our CEO". Most of them try their best to match their previous pay and more so compensation won't be an issue.

I'm not necessarily supporting million dollar ministerial salaries, but you got to see it from their POV as well.

not really, compensation at that level is already so huge that alot of people consider more personal aspects to their careers and their impact on the world around them.

to quote “Do you want to sell sugar water for the rest of your life, or do you want to come with me and change the world?"

ive known trading floor managers and MnA take up lesser paying roles like business dev roles for the challenge or to vary their skillsets

Then that begs the question of why CEOs are paid so much. Why offer so much compensation if it's not going to make much of a difference when it comes to recruiting leaders?

I can see the answer being executive compensation is given lower weight when you're comparing between say $5M and $8M, then when it's between $300k and $500k. Which is probably why annual ministerial salaries do not match MNC CEOs but are at the bottom range of comparable C-suite compensation. That it matters less when at higher levels does not imply it doesn't matter at lower levels.
