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.

After Another Night Of Near-Riots In Anaheim, Latinos Want Feds To Investigate

Update at 5:36 p.m. ET. U.S. Attorney Will Investigate:

During a press conference today, Mayor Tom Tait asked for calm. He also said that the Office of the U.S. Attorney had agreed to investigate the shootings.

"The first step is to get to the truth," Tait said according to the Orange County Register. "That takes some time and patience, and that's what I'm asking for."

Our Original Post Continues:

It's quiet in Anaheim this morning after police put down a fourth day of angry protests that lasted past midnight. Some city residents are outraged over two deadly police shootings last weekend, and the police's subsequent handling of citizen protests this week.

At least 20 people were arrested yesterday, according to the Contra Costa Times, after protesters bunched up outside Anaheim city hall, where council members voted to ask the U.S. Attorney's office to investigate several deadly police shootings. Not everyone could get a seat inside the building and police turned away the overflow crowd.

At least five people were hurt in the melee that followed, according to The Los Angeles Times. And police once again deployed rubber bullets.

NPR member station KPCC has a dramatic report from a strip mall near city hall.

"Police helicopters hovered from above as colorful fireworks from nearby Disneyland lit up the sky," Corey Moore reports. "At one point, police shut down a gas station when protesters were seen filling canisters with gas."

Corey tells us about Yolanda Delgado, 68, who had decided to patrol the strip mall to keep protesters from looting.

At one point in the report, Delgado is punched in the face by one young protester. "Have some pride," she shouted.

George Rangel was also at the scene. He told Corey that he wasn't angry at the protesters for coming out against the shootings; he was angry at the way the protests have unfolded.

"There's no reason for the public to be acting like this," he said. "It's out of control. What we need is leadership within the Mexican community to lead these people."

In other parts of Anaheim, "protesters hurled rocks, traffic cones and other objects at police clad in riot gear as officers chased people along sidewalks and streets throughout the evening and fired less-than-lethal projectiles into crowds after giving a dispersal order," the Times reports. "Sirens wailed as officers formed skirmish lines and police from neighboring law enforcement agencies provided assistance."

As we wrote, the violence began Saturday with the deadly police shooting of Manuel Diaz, who was unarmed.

Now Diaz's family has filed a lawsuit against the city of Anaheim and the police department, according to The Los Angeles Times. It says the lawsuit alleges Diaz was shot when he was chased by officers, dropped to his knees and was shot in the back of the head.

Latino leaders are outraged over what they call "a history of brutality" against Latino residents. Five people have been killed in police shootings this year.

Saturday, Anaheim police unleashed dogs on protesters, including women and children. KCAL reporter Joe Jackson interviewed one woman who tried to protect her baby in a stroller. She was crying, saying that police started shooting suddenly and hit even little kids. She was distraught, saying the dog bit her.

Mayor Tom Tait has asked for a state and federal review of the shooting of Diaz.
Anaheim City council members voted unanimously to ask the U.S. Attorney to investigate the officer shootings. But last month Anaheim decided to hire an independent investigator to examine police shootings.

Meanwhile, Diaz's mother spoke to reporters near the site of the shooting. She called on residents to stop the violence.

"This is wrong and needs to stop on both sides," Genevieve Huizar said, according to the Times.
