(CNN)One of the classic harbingers of autumn draws near: the Corn Moon, or the Harvest Moon. It will be on full display later this week.

Here’s what you need to know to Get Up to Speed and On with Your Day. (You can also get “5 Things You Need to Know Today” delivered to your inbox daily. Sign up here.)1. Coronavirus Three vaccines are now in Phase 3 trials in the US, and the UK has just announced its candidate for a vaccine is in the works. It may seem like this is taking a while, but experts warn the frustratingly long process is necessary: Several incidents, including a polio vaccine disaster in 1955, show why rushing a vaccine (like people worry the FDA may do) is not only dangerous but erodes public trust in vaccines. And no, herd immunity isn’t an option, experts say, with one estimating 2 million people could die if the US tried to achieve non-vaccine-aided herd immunity to the coronavirus. Meanwhile, the House Select Subcommittee on Coronavirus published eight weeks’ worth of state reports on the virus from the White House’s task force. They reveal that, while President Trump was painting an optimistic picture of the pandemic fight in July and August, the information he was getting was increasingly dire.French students are heading back to school.

ProtestsPresident Trump will visit Kenosha, Wisconsin, today as the city simmers with unrest after the police shooting of Jacob Blake and more ugly incidents in its aftermath. A volunteer group reports nine members were arrested by Kenosha police on their way to deliver food and water to protesters. Similar demonstrations have persisted around Portland, Oregon, where two sheriffs say they won’t send deputies to rein in the protests due to what they consider a lack of support from city officials. Many have been waiting for President Trump to condemn the actions of his supporters in Portland and Kenosha after violent clashes in the two cities, but he has so far refused to do so. Joe Biden has spoken out against the violence.New video shows moments before deadly Portland shootingNew video shows moments before deadly Portland shootingNew video shows moments before deadly Portland shootingJUST WATCHEDNew video shows moments before deadly Portland shootingReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

ChinaAn Australian TV host at China’s state broadcaster has been detained in Beijing, marking a new dark spot in the worsening relationship between the two countries. Cheng Lei, the detained anchor, worked for the international arm of CCTV, one of the most important propaganda outlets in China. That raises questions, since it’s unlikely she would be considered a political dissident. China and Australia have been at odds since Canberra months ago called for an investigation into the coronavirus pandemic. The two countries have lobbed trade restrictions at each other, including a new Chinese investigation into Australian wine imports. This situation has led some in the Australian media to speculate that Cheng’s detention could be political.Australian anchor working for Chinese state TV detainedAustralian anchor working for Chinese state TV detainedAustralian anchor working for Chinese state TV detainedJUST WATCHEDAustralian anchor working for Chinese state TV detainedReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

USPSThe House Committee on Oversight and Reform plans to subpoena Postmaster General Louis DeJoy over documents they say he’s intentionally withholding from Congress. The records pertain to controversial changes made to the post office that caused widespread delays and sparked suspicion the Trump administration was trying to use the USPS to harm mail-in voting efforts. This planned subpoena is an escalation in the battle between Democrats and DeJoy as he faces ongoing questioning from the committee. Multiple House Democrats have called for his resignation or removal.Lawmaker stumps postmaster general with postcard questionLawmaker stumps postmaster general with postcard questionLawmaker stumps postmaster general with postcard questionJUST WATCHEDLawmaker stumps postmaster general with postcard questionReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

The company received a Part 135 air carrier certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration, which companies need to begin using drones for deliveries. Amazon said it would use the approval to begin to test deliveries. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced plans for a drone delivery project way back in 2013, and the first such delivery happened in 2016 in the UK, but the process has lagged since then. After all, the FAA is still developing regulations for widespread drone use. Ultimately, the company wants to achieve 30-minute drone deliveries — something that is definitely in demand in the pandemic economy.CVS just delivered its first prescriptions via droneCVS just delivered its first prescriptions via droneCVS just delivered its first prescriptions via droneJUST WATCHEDCVS just delivered its first prescriptions via droneReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH
