The Falcon 9 rocket is designed to land its first stage, enabling its reusability. SpaceX has developed two primary methods for landing the Falcon 9 first stage: landing on land and landing on an autonomous drone ship.

Landing on Land:

a. As the first stage approaches the Earth’s atmosphere after stage separation, it reorients itself using its grid fins for stability and control. This maneuver is known as a boostback burn.

b. The rocket performs a reentry burn, firing three of its Merlin engines to slow down and control its descent through the atmosphere.

AI is Overhyped, Human-Created Products Still and Will Matter, Solving Unemployment | “90 Days to Create & Launch” book

I’ve been thinking a lot about the excitement around artificial intelligence (AI). You’ve likely heard the discussions about AI taking over everything and replacing human jobs. But that’s not the whole truth.

I’m here to present two significant insights from my new book titled “90 Days to Create & Launch.”

First, AI will actively collaborate with humans to simplify the creation of products. Secondly, the current advancement in technology, often referred to as the 4th/5th Industrial Revolution, makes it easier, cheaper, and faster to generate jobs and address unemployment challenges. AI and this new technology should stimulate people to think creatively and generate fresh ideas. This is why the book is named “It’s the Easiest, Cheapest and Quickest Time in History to be an Entrepreneur and Innovator.”

To learn how to start your own brand product, purchase a copy of the “90 Days to Create & Launch” book.

I often say to young people that to stay productive, they should not listen to people over 40 who have achieved prestige and are ever complaining and condemning “structures” in society.

Most of these people’s favourite topics are race and gender.

Why should you not listen to them? These people knew the societal challenges when they were 25.

This short book shows how anyone can innovate through a simple framework illustrated through Elon Musk’s companies: Tesla, PayPal and SpaceX.

These innovation strategies can be adapted for simple and complex innovations.

The book introduces the concept of “material-to-proprietary novelty,” one of Tiisetso Maloma’s coined frameworks, which explains different degrees of innovation.

Through the lens of this framework, Tiisetso demonstrates how Musk has transformed groundbreaking ideas into great advancements across industries, including finance, automotive, and space travel.

The book weaves together the framework and Musk’s innovation tactics, providing readers with a simple-yet-deeper understanding.

By examining Musk’s strategies within this framework, the book illustrates their adaptability and potential for readers’ own innovation aspirations.

Why Humans Will Always Be Better Writers than ChatGPT: How to Beat AI

I hope this heading is arrogant enough. Beat that, ChatGPT!

This is where I explain what ChatGPT is. In short, I asked it to do so.

It replied: “ChatGPT uses deep learning to generate text responses. It’s trained on a large amount of text data and uses that information to predict what the next word in a sentence should be, based on the context. It uses this information to generate a response to a given prompt or input.”

ChatGPT is like Google, which went to a private school in Britain: It explains in detail in one go.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, thanks, ChatGPT.

Question (MacDonald): What is going on? Why are you starting and naming a church after Jordan Peterson?

Answer (Tiisetso Maloma):
