We don’t deserve Saint Ivanka, we really don’t. Nobody asked Donald Trump’s favourite child to devote her life to empowering women, she just knew it had to be done. Nobody elected her to serve in the US government, but she took a senior role in her father’s administration anyway. Indeed, Ivanka has had little to say about abortion in general.

A year earlier, almost to the day, another automated vehicle – not an airplane but an Uber self-driving car – struck and killed Elaine Herzberg in Tempe, Arizona. But mostly the self-driving car companies are allowed to do what they want, so long as there is a person behind the wheel. The Uber self-driving car that hit and killed her did see her with its sensors and cameras, but was unable to stop on its own. And car companies are constantly releasing new models and upgrading their software, forcing human drivers to learn about the new features. In addition, self-driving cars have to handle not just weather conditions but also close-range interactions with other cars, pedestrians, cyclists and e-scooters.

After that, business as usual resumed, and orders kept pouring in for the 737 Max, the fastest-selling jet in the company's history.
