Bloomberg LP, the information company founded by former NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg, has a new home for its 4,000 London employees. The European HQ, which opens on Tuesday, was designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, and Bloomberg says it's the most sustainable major office building ever designed.

One buried thing: The project took about 8 years to accommodate excavation and preservation of Roman ruins on the site, including an almost 2,000 year old temple which was reassembled and will be open to the public. During construction, 14,000 "significant" artifacts were found while excavating the site, the largest collection of small finds to have been recovered on a single excavation in London.

Climate change goes mainstream in presidential debate

The most notable part of Thursday’s presidential debate on climate change was the fact it was included as a topic and assumed as a fact.

The big picture: This is the first time in U.S. presidential history that climate change was a featured issue at a debate. It signals how the problem has become part of the fabric of our society. More extreme weather, like the wildfires ravaging Colorado, is pushing the topic to the front-burner.

Finally, a real debate

A more disciplined President Trump held back from the rowdy interruptions at tonight's debate in Nashville, while making some assertions so outlandish that Joe Biden chuckled and even closed his eyes.

  • A Trump campaign adviser told Axios: "He finally listened." 

The result: A real debate.

Biden to Trump: "I have not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life"

Former VP Joe Biden pushed back Thursday against allegations from President Trump, saying he had never profited from foreign sources. "Nothing was unethical," Biden told debate moderator Kristen Welker about his son Hunter's work in Ukraine while he was vice president.

Why it matters: Earlier on Thursday, Hunter Biden's former business partner, Tony Bobulinski, released a statement saying Joe Biden's claims that he never discussed overseas business dealings with his son were "false."
