The Champs-Élysées is set for a renovation that will transform the iconic Parisian street into a green, pedestrian-friendly space after Mayor Anne Hidalgo gave the go-ahead. The new plans will reduce vehicle traffic by half allowing pedestrians to enjoy wider sidewalks and more greenery, according to architect Philippe Chiambaretta and his agency, PCA-STREAM. The Champs-Élysées committee said the avenue has “lost its splendor” and has been “progressively abandoned by Parisians.'' (📸: PCA-Stream)

In relationships already strained or severed, last week’s violent spectacle of democracy under siege has pushed some people to take a drastic new step: warning law enforcement. Anguished Americans are turning in friends and family for their alleged involvement in the Capitol riots, contributing to more than 100,000 tips submitted to the FBI and playing a role in at least one high-profile arrest. For months — sometimes years — the informants say they have watched helplessly as loved ones embraced far-right ideology and latched onto conspiracy theories, from QAnon to viral-video claims of a coronavirus “Plandemic.” Extremism has thrived in the Trump era and under pandemic lockdowns, experts say, with more people isolated at home and misinformation rampant online.

During the chaos at the Capitol, overwhelmed police officers confronted and combated a frenzied sea of rioters who transformed the seat of democracy into a battlefield. Now police chiefs across the country are confronting the uncomfortable reality that members of their own ranks were among the mob that faced off against other law enforcement officers. At least 13 off-duty law enforcement officials are suspected of taking part in the riot, a tally that could grow as investigators continue to pore over footage and records to identify participants. Police leaders are turning in their own to the FBI and taking the striking step of reminding officers in their departments that criminal misconduct could push them off the force and behind bars.

Online misinformation about election fraud plunged 73 percent after several social media sites suspended President Trump and key allies last week, research firm Zignal Labs has found, underscoring the power of tech companies to limit the falsehoods poisoning public debate when they act aggressively. The new research by the San Francisco-based analytics firm reported that conversations about election fraud dropped from 2.5 million mentions to 688,000 mentions across several social media sites in the week after Trump was banned from Twitter. Election disinformation had for months been a major subject of online misinformation, beginning even before the Nov. 3 election and pushed heavily by Trump and his allies.

Four miles of roadway in Dallas will now bear the name of Botham Jean, the Black man who was murdered in his apartment by an off-duty police officer in 2018. "Renaming the street in honor of Botham Jean would show the citizens of Dallas that his death was not in vain and show the world his life mattered," a proposal put forth by Mayor Pro Tem Adam Medrano read. The officer fatally shot the 26-year-old in his apartment after thinking she’d walked into hers — she lived in the unit directly below — and that he was an intruder. ⁠ ⁠ (📸: Botham Shem Jean/Facebook)
