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.

After Israel, Romney Leaves Controversy In His Wake

It's ALL THINGS CONSIDERED from NPR News. I'm Audie Cornish. Mitt Romney flew out of Israel this morning for Poland, the final leg of his foreign trip, but before he left, he held an early morning fundraiser in Jerusalem. Comments Romney made there and in a speech yesterday have upset many Palestinians.

From Jerusalem, Sheera Frenkel tells us more.

SHEERA FRENKEL, BYLINE: Romney's campaign appeared pleased with their morning fundraiser at the King David Hotel. Organizers say the event raised approximately one million dollars for the Romney campaign, but Palestinian leaders say it was the final straw in a series of what they call upsetting comments made by Romney.

During the fundraiser, Romney spoke to donors, including billionaire casino magnet Sheldon Adelson. Romney said that the per capita GDP of Israel was twice as high as the per capita GDP of areas managed by the Palestinian authority. Romney even added that, according to one economic historian, culture makes all the difference.

Palestinian official Saeb Erekat condemned the remarks as racist. He pointed out that Romney had gotten his numbers wrong. Erekat cited a World Bank report, which blamed Israel's military occupation of the West Bank for the low Palestinian GDP.

Romney's campaign said that his comments had been taken out of context and that he had also compared the economies of neighboring countries, like the U.S. and Mexico.

Over the weekend, Romney held only one meeting with a Palestinian official. Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad joked with Romney about the Olympics. That was the only topic the two discussed in the presence of reporters. On Sunday evening during his main address, Romney surprised Palestinians with another remark.

MITT ROMNEY: It's a deeply moving experience to be in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.

FRENKEL: Romney also said in an interview with CNN, if elected, he would move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in consultation with Israel. Current U.S. policy does not recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The U.S. maintains a consulate office in Jerusalem, but keeps its embassy in Tel Aviv. In peace talks, Palestinians have called East Jerusalem to be the capital of their proposed future state.

Speaking to NPR by phone, Palestinian negotiator Erekat said it was clear that Romney lacked knowledge of the region. For NPR News, I'm Sheera Frenkel. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright National Public Radio.
