Glenn Thrush, a prominent political reporter for the New York Times, will remain with the Times after being suspended for sexual harassment allegations, the paper says.

"We understand that our colleagues and the public at large are grappling with what constitutes sexually offensive behavior in the workplace and what consequences are appropriate ... each case has to be evaluated based on individual circumstances. We believe this is an appropriate response to Glenn's situation." — Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet.

Thrush has been suspended without pay since November. He will remain suspended until late January, per the Times, and when he returns won't cover the White House.

This is one of the bigger signs of trouble for President Trump that we've seen in a poll: Of the final debate's seven topics, Joe Biden won or tied on all seven when viewers in a massive Axios-SurveyMonkey sample were asked who they trusted more to handle the issue.

Why it matters: In a time of unprecedented colliding crises for the nation, the polling considered Biden to be vastly more competent.

Entomologists in Washington state on Thursday discovered the first Asian giant hornet nest in the U.S.

Why it matters: You may know this insect species by its nom de guerre: "the murder hornet." While the threat they pose to humans has been overstated, the invading hornets could decimate local honeybee populations if they establish themselves.
