April 15, 2022- Space X Launches Connectivity Satellite
John C Morley (00:10):
Hi everyone. I'm John C Morley, the host of the JMOR TECH TALK SHOW and inspirations for your life.
John C Morley (01:03):
Well there. Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome once again to another JMOR TECH TALK SHOW. Great to be here with you, Marcus. How are you doing tonight? I'm not sure if we lost audio there for a moment.
John C Morley (01:21)
How are there? You're back. Okay, great. So, we have another great show plan for you, but I want to tell you that we have an amazing guest coming again. And this guest has been on our show before, and it's always a treat whenever he comes on the air Dr. Michael Nuccitelli who is the expert on the psychology perspective for cyberbullying cyberstalking cyber criminal’s minds, and also oddor telling us, you know, what you're doing online will permeate into your offline behavior. So definitely stick around for that. He'll be here next week, which is going to be coming up on the 22nd and the 29th.
John C Morley (02:09):
We have so much information that you're going to wanna catch up with him. And we had to put in two shows because there's just so much valuable information. And please definitely watch it and watch the show many times because you won't catch everything in just one show. So, let's get into what tonight's show is about. You know, we've been talking a lot about Ukraine, I'm sure that's no mystery to everyone, but you know, a funny thing has been happening. You know, we've been spending lots of money on different things. And one of the things they're spending a lot of money on, yes, you heard it, right. It's the space X star link terminals that were, were sent to Ukraine. They had them costing us. I'm going to tell you; they had them costing about 3 million, so that's quite a bit. And so, you know, somebody's going to have to pay for that as our government is now trying to help with this as they're providing the internet service to Ukraine, following the Russian invasion. But unfortunately, as we know, Marcus, there's no free ride. Is there?
No, not at all. Everything comes with a price. It comes with a, with consequences and, you know, and these guys for a very long time have expected something to fall out of the sky for them.
John C Morley (03:37):
Yeah, I think it's nice that you know Elon Musk's team's doing it. I'm not sure if he did it for free. I don't think he did it for free.
John C Morley (03:46):
At all, but we're now learning that it costs money. So, the fact that it costs money is telling me that Elon's probably coming back for his money. Like maybe he gave it to them in the beginning, but the fact that we now know it's 3 million, the only one that would know that would be Elon. So, he must be not doing it for free.
No. and you know, it is like with everything you do for the government, you know, they're going to find a way to tax you, so why not, you know, charge them right,
John C Morley (04:16):
Exactly. And speaking more about space Marcus, space stations. First, all private astronaut team was welcome to board the orbiting platform not too long ago. And so, this is an all-private team of astronauts that was ever be launched to the international space station ISS. And they were welcomed aboard the orbit just recently. And their arrival came after about 21 hours after the four men team represented the Houston-based startup company, Axiom space ink lifted off from NASA's candy space center, riding a top, a SpaceX launched Falcon nine rocket. And we all know the crew dragon capsule is very responsible for the mission. And, you know, they go through a lot of procedures, Marcus. I mean, I don't know if I want to go to space. First of all, when you do it, you're putting a tax on your body.
John C Morley (05:20 ):
And you're also, you know, making things hard for yourself. And then, when you get back to earth, you have to go through an acclimation period. Do you know what OS reminds me of? If someone's ever broken their leg and you know, they can't move that leg because in a cast they get atrophy. I think that's very similar to the way the astronauts probably feel, you know, when they get off that dragon capsule, you know, they don't show too much. You know, they have, they take one or two steps and then right away they're like assisting them.
John C Morley (05:53)
It's like, I don't think they want us to know too much, but I have to tell you, I think they're very incapacitated. That's what I take that one or two steps and then, oh yeah, let me help you. It's like they took two steps, and now let's help you.
yeah, I would,
John C Morley (06:08):
I think they're afraid they're going to fall over. I think they're more concerned about a lawsuit, and I'm sure that they had to sign away their life to be able to go on this dragon capsule. So, I think it's probably riskier than skiing or even skydiving because you don't know how it's going to affect your body. You go through what, several weeks or months of training to simulate what might be the conditions in space, but it could be worse.
John C Morley (06:41):
So, I'm going to take a rain check on that. I know, even at Disney, when they had the red and the green ride, I stayed on the green side and did not want to go on the red side of the orange side.
Marcus (06:50 )
John C Morley (06:51)
Because a lot of people were regurgitating their lungs.
That's got to be tough.
John C Morley (07:00):
So, I'll watch SpaceX right here from earth. Thank you. Or from my mobile phone.
Yeah. Better view.
John C Morley (07:08):
Yeah, better view. And I know that I can keep both feet planted on the ground. That's not to say that I mind flying, although flying's been a little challenging as you know, lately, with you know, the different orbital systems and space patterns and the wind, you know, just because you have nice weather doesn't mean that you're going to have a smooth flight. And I've been noticing, you know, the more that I travel, that flight's just not as smooth as it used to be. I think our atmosphere is changing, Marcus.
That's for real.
John C Morley (07:45):
And you know, it's like becoming something that people are now having to become more accustomed to. And the flight attendants just seem to be more concerned about safety. They were in the past, but I feel that their main goal is safety even more than ever before. And that tells me that space travel, even flying in a plane, it's changed.
John C Morley (08:12):
It has changed. All right. So, we talk about China a little bit, and let's bring them up. Well, China's electric vehicle makers. Neo is suspending production due to supply chain disruptions, Isn't that coincidence.
John C Morley (08:37):
We might have lost you there a second. Marcus, say that again?
Yeah, you knew what had happened sooner or later.
John C Morley (08:41):
Yeah, I, I kind of did, but now that it's happening right in China. So, it's not just the United States that's getting the brunt of what's going on. They suspend the production after the country measures to contain the recent search of guess what? COVID 19 cases are disrupting operations. Come on, guys.
John C Morley (09:08):
Let's get off this.
Yeah. I think it's going to be the excuse for another full year. John, you, I mean, actually you predicted this, like, you know that like, you know, we're not going to come out, come out of like this thing until you know, about early next year. Maybe if we're lucky,
John C Morley (09:27):
This is crazy. So, the company is going to postpone deliveries of their electronic vehicles to users, and they're supposedly going to work together with suppliers to strive for a resumption while trying to meet the government's COVID curbs. Yeah. Right.
John C Morley (09:46):
And we know China's been taking a strict lockdown set of measures to prevent the COVID 19 from becoming more contagious, like the Omicron variant in several other places. But, you know, Marcus, I don't want to say COVID is over, but I do want to say that I think if we're taking the right precautions, life's ready to go on. I think we're ready to get outside and start living again, even indoors.
John C Morley (10:16):
So, you know, there's always going to be a cold, there's always going to be a flu. And so, what do we do to stop living. I was talking to somebody the other day, and he says, so, you know, life is very dangerous. I said, well, you know, stepping off a curve is dangerous too. A car could hit you.
Marcus (10:33 )
John C Morley (10:34)
But I don't see you stopping to cross streets. Well, John, that's different. Well, no, it's not, it's not any different. I just find this to be such bureaucratic nonsense. I get that there was a problem, and there might still be some challenges, but I think people are just using this as an excuse to use, not to continue our economy.
That's exactly what it feels like and what it looks like. And, and it's just not the way because, you know, it, it is hurting a lot of businesses, it's hurting a lot of end-user consumers. We just found up when it's going to improve.
John C Morley (11:27):
And I think Marcus, it's not just going to end with this one supplier that makes cars. I think this is going to domino around the globe.
Yeah, absolutely. Yes.
John C Morley (11:39):
Getting parts is, is extremely hard. And so, I'm sure Neo is not the only one, but, interestingly, they're in China, and they suspended production.
John C Morley (11:53):
Because we thought China was okay. And that they were producing things pretty massively.
Oh, we got that wrong.
John C Morley (12:03):
I think so. Yeah, you're right. We cut it wrong. And I almost think that this was a plan. I think the Chinese knew that they were going to stop production. I don't think they just thought, well, I just stopped production today. Because we can't get parts. It's like, do you know what's going on in the world? Like, have you planned to see what you could do to mitigate these kinds of situations? So, we all know there's a chip supply shortage. I'm sure you know about that. Right. Whether we're talking about the cars, the shifts that need to start the engines, and we're told now, Marcus, that shortage is going to last until 2024.
So yeah, this is way past the time that like, you know, we found out, we were hoping to predict, you know, we, we said 2023.
John C Morley (13:00):
I do see that production is getting better. But I also see that a lot of manufacturers are starting to make their chips so they can get their products, you know on the line recently we were waiting for a delivery. I say recently the order went in, in August. We just got the delivery a week ago. Now here's the funny thing, Marcus, those items were manufactured in February of 2022; that's two months. It took them to get from another country to the United States.
That's two months. Wow. That is ridiculous. You know, and I'm sitting here with my head down just like in disbelief of like, you know, what's, what's going on here in our country and like around the world too, this just not here in the US, this is around the world.
John C Morley (13:55):
But the thing that's got me a little bit floored is the manufacturers said that it's on a boat somewhere. Okay. They said this last year; it wasn't even in production till freaking February.
John C Morley (14:14):
Let's stop the BS and say that we can't unload stuff. I think this is a whole bunch of nonsense. I think it's lying with the manufacturers based on what I saw just the other day. And I looked at all the electronic components that came in manufactured on February 8th, 2022, February 5th, 2022, February 4th, 2022. But it took two months to get to us from the production date of February.
John C Morley (14:51):
So that's what I know. So, the chip shortage is going to be around. Unfortunately, ladies and gentlemen, for a little while, and you know, this undersupply will hopefully rebound by itself, but it's not likely to happen overnight. Like they're saying, experts are talking now about 2024, and we're talking late 2024, not early 2024.
John C Morley (15:19):
And so now they're going to brain blame things on the UK because they can't get things transported. So, you know, they're just going to make all kinds of excuses. We already know this.
Yeah. And it doesn't show any sign of like, you know, of it turning around overnight. So, I don't think anything we can do, but it just continues to complain and hope that we can, you know, get the voices heard.
John C Morley (15:47):
Well, I always say something, Marcus, if you're not part of the solution, then you're the problem.
John C Morley (15:55):
So, if you want to whine and complain and make excuses and not look for a solution, then you are the problem.
Marcus (16:05 )
And more people are the problem; they're exacerbating the original problem.
Wow. That's powerful.
John C Morley (16:16):
Yeah. It's a little bit crazy, but you know, ladies and gentlemen off, you saw my hat here while I've got it on. So, one of my companies makes these hats believe and achieve, and you know we can make them for you. And pretty soon, we'll have the option that you guys can have your hats customized with your logos, QR codes, pictures, messages, and branding because everybody wears a cap. Don't they? Marcus
John C Morley (16:42):
And you could order one from us. You could order a hundred from us, and we'll have that ready pretty soon. Right now, we're working on creating JMOR swag which will be available pretty soon, hats, t-shirts, and much more. So be sure to stay tuned to the show because I'll have all this swag, and I'll even be giving some of this away to people that answer my questions. All right. So how about this, Marcus? We're always engineering things to be better, to be more efficient, and you know, use less power and all that. But how about this for a phenomenon Engineered crystals could help computers run more efficiently. This comes to us, Marcus, from the University of California and Berkeley engineers who have created engineered crystal structures. So, computers may be growing smaller and more powerful, but they're going to require a great deal of energy to operate. You see, what a lot of people don't realize is that as we make the computers smaller. Okay.
John C Morley (17:51):
And we try to put more, let's say circuits per surface area gets a lot hotter under that hood.
Yeah, sure, do.
John C Morley (18:02):
And the total amount of energy the US will be dedicated. Computing has continued to rise. And so, over the last decade, we’re going to see that it quickly approaches a major sector like transportation and people think, well, you know, it’s only a little computer, but you know, I've got to tell you something, these little computers can burn out. If they're not properly ventilated, now you can't always stick a fan on something. So, you've got to have proper heat sinks to dissipate the heat, or we're going to say goodbye to that chip or to that component. And so, I think the biggest thing that I'm going to say the United States has under their belt is the way that we could be.
John C Morley (19:00):
Setting the manufacturing standard for building chips, but then I hope we're not stupid enough to give it away to foreign countries. I hope we can bring production of these chips. I can tell in other chips right here in the United States. Do you notice they don't make and tell chips in the United States? Why the heck not?
You Know what, it's all, it's got a lot to do with like the all bureaucratic red tape that, you know, that we go through to, you know, try to help our corporations out when they want to do the right thing, you know? And this is where we find ourselves, you know, and, and these excuses that, you know, that did pour out. You know, year after year, and you know, and I believe your answer is asking the right question, John, and this is the conversation that needs to be had more and more.
John C Morley (19:56):
And you know, the more that we head down, the path that we currently are on track with prices are going to continue to rise more and more. And so, when that happens, I'm going to say that it's going to be a big problem because a as we see what's going on right now, I think the biggest challenge we're going to have is that people don't understand that, you know, this is going to cost us a lot of money, a lot of money.
Yeah. It's got to be very expensive
John C Morley (20:33):
And that's what's going to open people's eyes up because nobody cares what's going on in our world until it costs the Piper money. Right. That's what people care about. Did, you know, ladies and gentlemen, right? That 75% Of production is okay. Takes place in east Asia. That's where our chips are being made today. And 90% of the most advanced chips are being made. Do you know where they're being made? It's not China,
John C Morley (21:15):
Where they're being made. If you had to guess.
The most advanced
John C Morley (21:21):
In the US,
John C Morley (21:24):
Oh, wow. Okay.
John C Morley (21:30):
So, they’re saying that proxy 75% of Intel semiconductor fabrication is performed in the United States. Okay. So why the heck don't we make the rest of that ship in the United States? You see, it's interesting, Marcus. When something has to be done very delicately and very succinctly, we don't send that to China or Taiwan.
John C Morley (21:58):
But when there's something that could be done massively at cheap labor, we set it there. So, the semiconductors are being billed here, and then they're being sent over to Taiwan to finish in east Asia. That just kind, that kind of makes me think.
Good. It that's, it's pretty worrisome, you know when we're thinking of about the way things are, and you know, and we're just so far behind now, you know when it comes to our economy as America and our, and what we're developing here in our country, as far as the things we, we truly need, we rely on the most.
John C Morley (22:48):
But you know, Marcus, we have the ability here, and we have the engineering, we have the smarts, the know-how to do this. It's a bureaucratic issue, and it's a cost issue. So, what I think needs to happen if people would like me to say this, I think we need to start taxing the chips that are coming into the United States.
Yeah. We have to do it fully.
John C Morley (23:14):
We do that. And ships that are coming in are going to cost computers, more money for people to buy them that is not main in the United States. Computers are still going to cost more money. Don't miss a thought there, but it's probably going to be less than the cost of the importation tax.
John C Morley (23:36):
But our bureaucracy doesn't want to do anything. They're just sitting on a log.
John C Morley (23:43):
You know, and we knew for a while that things weren't being manufactured in the US, when are we going to wake up as citizens, as business owners, as people, and start telling our government that they need to start manufacturing the United States. I mean, this isn't just a concept that we want to think about. This is something we have to move toward, and it's not going to happen overnight, but we have to take steps to get there. Or we're going to be in a very sorry place right now. We've already learned that we can't get supply for things, because most of them because most of the supply we rely on is in other countries. What does the US make? If we had to think about it,
You, you can't think of many things anymore. You know you used to know right off the top of your head, you could rattle these things off, but now you don't know.
John C Morley (24:42):
Well, I would say, you know, there's some electrical equipment that we make, and we make it pretty well. We make some medical equipment, and we make sporting goods and some miscellaneous stuff. We make some food, and we make petroleum and coal products, computer's electronic products, but not as high as I would expect it to be. So, the top 10 may have products actually in America. 2 trillion export industry are really what's shaping our world, man. And that's what I said. I said 2 trillion export imagery.
Wow. It's not talked about enough. Yeah. This is not talked about enough in the main, main media. You know, we gave our money away.
John C Morley (25:33):
Well, the media just wants to quiet people down and, and, and not talk about it. So electrical equipment is a very big thing that we make in the United States. Fabricated metal products are made in the United States. Okay. Medical equipment, sporting goods, and some miscellaneous are made in the United States. Okay. Primary metals, some foods, not a lot, but some patrol women, coal, as I mentioned to you, and computer electronic products, not the raw product.
John C Morley (26:13):
They're making some parts of it, But it's not enough.
John C Morley (26:24):
And you know, you got chemicals that are made in the United States. You got transportation equipment that's made in the United States.
John C Morley (26:36):
So, there are some things made in the United States, but you know, Marcus, it's going to cost more money. I would rather pay more money and get a product for the United States. I just think it's made better. It's solid. And it's going to work.
Yeah. Very easily. That's really on your part.
John C Morley (26:58):
There was a commercial online on social media the other day saying this refrigerator will outlive generations of people. And the reason is, and I'm talking about refrigerators that are made in the 1980s. Something happened, Marcus, between 1980 and 1990. They just stopped making quality refrigerators and appliances. They have designed them to break down. Have you noticed that?
I noticed it. It's pretty disgusting,
John C Morley (27:34):
But this is their way because they can't make enough money. So, they want it to break down. I would rather pay more money for a product that would last a lifetime.
Right. Or, you know, Hey, it is. It's like they say, you know, if you're not getting it from where, where you can put your money at, you know, you've got to go somewhere else.
John C Morley (28:08):
And I think, you know, a lot of companies, and I've seen many websites online, and they have a medical product that is a knockoff or a competitor to the US product. I'll give you an example, scales. A lot of digital scales are not the main United States. There are a few that are the ones that are not the main United States. If you weigh yourself today, it's one weight. If you take the scale and you move it to the left, just a few inches, and you get on, you could be five pounds higher or low. Yeah. And I was like, how can they allow something like this to be sold? It's not accurate.
John C Morley (28:54):
So, yeah, that'll be the drawback as well, to like, you know, trying to lower the cost on things. You know, and especially when things are coming out from a different country, they don't have, they don't have the same quality control regulations that we got.
John C Morley (29:12):
Yeah. So, I have a, a, a product real quick. I want to take it in my pocket and show you, and in another show, I'm going to do a demonstration of it. So, this is a lumen. It's a device that was in trials for a while. But what it does is it lets you hack your metabolism by taking breaths, and I'll do it on another show. So, you guys can see. But my point is that this product was not made in the United States. It was made in another country when you take apart one of these products, okay. Any product, whether it's a, let's say, Wi-Fi unit made in another country, a remote-control aluminum device, or a garage door opener. Remote. If you take that product apart, there was mainly made in the United States. It is disgusting the way it's made inside.
John C Morley (30:06):
The wires, the look, it's not very attractive inside. It's this happens to be a piece of plastic, a little board. It's not made that nice. When you take off, if you took the cover off, it is not an attractive product.
John C Morley (30:26):
Why don't they make a product that's good from the inside and the outside? Right? When you take the product apart and look inside.
John C Morley (30:40):
It's like, what did they do? Skimp on the manufacturing because nobody's ever going to see it. And the way they put the wires in it, just everything about it, just turns my stomach, that it doesn't have the same look and feel as the outside does. And I've got to tell you with some of these chargers you see, or some of these devices people use for their skin or their face, or what have you, if you took that product apart, one of those knockoff products and you looked how it was wired, and you looked at the shorty Construction inside, It's like a fire waiting to happen. But yet we plug these things into our outlet because they got UL approved. I don't know how the heck they get you approved UL approved Marcus.
Yeah. That's different.
John C Morley (31:31):
I don't even know.
Yeah. You're seeing a lot more of that nowadays,
John C Morley (31:35):
But it is terrible. If you take something, it could be a calculator; it could be anything. And if you take something that was 10 years, 15 years ago, there's a big difference in the way it's assembled a big difference. So, the question I have, Marcus, is when is our country going to wake up,
Yeah, you know, John, I wish I had the answer to that. And you know, with so much conflict ensuing, you know, around the world, you know, it, it's just really hard to figure out, you know, when that's going to occur for us.
John C Morley (32:12):
I don't know. Well, ladies, and gentlemen, we are just about to the end of our show. And I want to let you know that we have a great guest coming next week, which is April 22nd. He'll be with us on the 29th as well. We're going to dive into some personal issues about technology and how you need to understand what's going on before your children become a case study. Well, ladies and gentlemen, I'm John C Morley, serial entrepreneur. And I guess we've got to say goodbye but don't worry. We'll be back again next week. Enjoy your weekend. And if you miss some details, just go back and replay it. You can always do that even at 3:00 AM because we're here for you 24 hours a day. So, you can watch it and take the knowledge and let it inspire your life. I'll be back. Yes, I'll be back next time on the JMOR TECH TALK SHOW with my guest, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli, that you tell me you're not going to wanna miss him.
