### Is there a (discrete) monoid M injecting into its group completion G for which BM is not homotopy equivalent to BG?

For a (discrete) monoid $M$, the classifying space $BM$ is the
geometric realization of the nerve of the one object category whose
hom-set is $M$. (This definition gives the usual classfiying space

### How do you compute the space of lifts of an E-infinity map?

Let X, Y and B be $E_\infty$ spaces, and let $p: X \rightarrow Y$ and $f: B \rightarrow Y$ be $E_\infty$ maps. We can ask for the space of lifts of f across p, that is the space of $E_\infty$ maps ...

### Model Structure/Homotopy Pushouts in topological monoids?

Let C be the category of topological monoids, that is, the category of monoids in (Top, $\times$).
Can the model category structure on Top (Serre fibrations, cofibrations, weak homotopy ...
