  • How political identity affects our view of realityHow political identity affects our view of reality
    NYU psychologist Jay Van Bavel says a person’s political identity and information universe both form beliefs. “So if they hear misinformation from the news sources they tune in to, from the people they follow on social media, from their local community leaders and peers, then they will be misled into believing all kinds of misinformation, lies and conspiracy theories, “he says.

    Veteran journalist Jackie Calmes says political journalists fail the public when they pamper “both sides”. She says the radicalization of the GOP is a key story: “People feel that without Trump in the picture, we are sort of back to normal. And we actually are not. Trump still runs the party.”

The closure – between the 10 motorway to the south and the exchange of motorways 5, 10 and 101 to the north – began on Friday at 22.00 and continues until kl. 15 Sunday, according to the City of Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering.

Another closure is planned from kl. 22:00 to 4 November to 15.00 on 6 November.

Motorists traveling west on the 60 freeway from the Pomona area will not have access to the 101 highway during these times. These motorists will be driven north on the 710 Freeway to the westbound 10/101 Freeway. Southbound drivers on 101 can take the 110 motorway south and then drive east on the 10 motorway to bypass the closed motorway section.

“As the installation of the cable ties along the arches over the 101 motorway is completed, this span is now fully supported and no longer requires supporting false work under the bridge,” it said in a city statement. “The contractor removes the counterfeit.”

The plant is part of the city’s $ 588 million $ Sixth Street Viaduct Replacement Project, replacing a 1930s structure considered seismically unhealthy.

The new viaduct, which is to be completed in the summer of next year, is the largest bridge project in urban history.
