NASA has released the first picture of Jupiter taken since the Juno spacecraft went into orbit around the planet on July 4.

The picture was taken on July 10. Juno was 2.7 million miles from Jupiter at the time. The color image shows some of the atmospheric features of the planet, including the giant red spot. You can also see three of Jupiter's moons in the picture: Io, Europa and Ganymede.

The Senate is set to approve a bill intended to change the way police and health care workers treat people struggling with opioid addictions.

My husband and I once took great pleasure in preparing meals from scratch. We made pizza dough and sauce. We baked bread. We churned ice cream.

Then we became parents.

Now there are some weeks when pre-chopped veggies and a rotisserie chicken are the only things between us and five nights of Chipotle.

Parents are busy. For some of us, figuring out how to get dinner on the table is a daily struggle. So I reached out to food experts, parents and nutritionists for help. Here is some of their (and my) best advice for making weeknight meals happen.

"O Canada," the national anthem of our neighbors up north, comes in two official versions — English and French. They share a melody, but differ in meaning.

Let the record show: neither version of those lyrics contains the phrase "all lives matter."

But at the 2016 All-Star Game, the song got an unexpected edit.

At Petco Park in San Diego, one member of the Canadian singing group The Tenors — by himself, according to the other members of the group — revised the anthem.

School's out, and a lot of parents are getting through the long summer days with extra helpings of digital devices.

How should we feel about that?

Police in Baton Rouge say they have arrested three people who stole guns with the goal of killing police officers. They are still looking for a fourth suspect in the alleged plot, NPR's Greg Allen reports.

"Police say the thefts were at a Baton Rouge pawn shop early Saturday morning," Greg says. "One person was arrested at the scene. Since then, two others have been arrested and six of the eight stolen handguns have been recovered. Police are still looking for one other man."

A 13-year-old boy is among those arrested, Greg says.

After an international tribunal invalidated Beijing's claims to the South China Sea, Chinese authorities have declared in no uncertain terms that they will be ignoring the ruling.

The Philippines brought the case to the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague, objecting to China's claims to maritime rights in the disputed waters. The tribunal agreed that China had no legal authority to claim the waters and was infringing on the sovereign rights of the Philippines.

Donald Trump is firing back at Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg after she disparaged him in several media interviews. He tweeted late Tuesday that she "has embarrassed all" with her "very dumb political statements" about the candidate. Trump ended his tweet with "Her mind is shot - resign!":

Donald Trump wrapped up his public tryout of potential vice presidential candidates in Indiana Tuesday night with Gov. Mike Pence giving the final audition.

The Indiana governor's stock as Trump's possible running mate is believed to be on the rise, with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich also atop the list. Sources tell NPR the presumptive GOP presidential nominee is close to making a decision, which he's widely expected to announce by Friday.


600-Year-Old Bras Were Austrian Fashion Statement

It's ALL THINGS CONSIDERED from NPR News. I'm Audie Cornish.


And I'm Robert Siegel. If you want to give a thrill to the medieval clothing historian in your life, give her a big pile of linen rags and make sure some really old bras are in there.

HILARY DAVIDSON: One of them has actually two separate cups for the breasts and then has two straps that go to each shoulder.

CORNISH: That's Hilary Davidson, fashion curator and medieval clothes expert at the Museum of London, and she's talking about four items among thousands of textiles discovered between the floorboards of an Austrian castle. The material was stuffed there during a 15th-century renovation.

DAVIDSON: The bras seem to be made of very fine linen and beautifully embellished with an early form of needle lace.

SIEGEL: Those garments were uncovered in 2008 by a research team from Austria's University of Innsbruck. And while they are worn and raggedy, they are very well-preserved. Carbon dating has now confirmed their age. Yes, these are 600-year-old bras. That's a surprising discovery since the notion of a single garment to lift and separate the breasts is thought to be a modern development dating from the late 19th century.

CORNISH: Exactly what medieval women wore under their clothes has long been somewhat of a mystery, though Hilary Davidson says there have been clues.

DAVIDSON: There are some references to women wearing what translates as breast bags in 15th-century Germanic regions, but like so many things, we only find out about these because people complained about them, usually men.

SIEGEL: Including one unknown 15th-century German writer who put his complaints about the (foreign language spoken) or breast bag into satirical verse.

DAVIDSON: Many women make two breast bags. With them, she roams the streets so that all the young men that look at her can see her beautiful breasts. But whose breasts are too large makes tight pouches, so there is no gossip in the city about her big breasts. I mean, it's so modern.

CORNISH: Researchers think the bras were likely worn as a fashion statement by well-off Germanic women. As for their modern aspects, we don't think we'll see Gisele Bundchen in a Victoria Secret (foreign language spoken) anytime soon. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright National Public Radio.
