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.

Ailing BlackBerry Maker Faces Shareholder Scrutiny

This is ALL THINGS CONSIDERED from NPR News. I'm Melissa Block.


And I'm Robert Siegel. Executives of the company that makes BlackBerries faced their shareholders today in Ottawa, Canada, and it was not a happy meeting. [POST-BROADCAST CORRECTION: The meeting was held in Waterloo, Ontario, not in Ottawa.]

Many investors are upset with the way Research in Motion has been run. The value of RIM stock has plummeted 80 percent with growing competition from iPhones and Droids. And now the company's new management team is trying to convince investors it can turn things around.

NPR's Jim Zarroli reports.

JIM ZARROLI, BYLINE: At RIM's annual meeting in Ontario, the air was thick with skepticism about where the company is going. Investor Philip Rayson said it was time for board members to resign.

PHILIP RAYSON: I'm extremely irritated. Why did they let it get out of hand so badly and so much?

ZARROLI: Shareholders such as Rayson blame the company for complacency. Once a leader in the SmartPhone field, RIM has seen its market share erode because of competition, especially from iPhones. RIM has responded by replacing most of its senior managers. It's also invested heavily in a new generation of smartphone to be called BlackBerry 10. It's supposed to provide the kind of touchscreen technology that users like in iPhones and Androids.

But analyst Katarina Milanazi(ph) of the Gartner Group says there are still a lot of questions about the new product and whether it can compete with Apple.

KATARINA MILANAZI: The thing that they're still at the plotting phase of how we're going to tackle this going forward and, obviously, BlackBerry 10 is the big weapon - that's what they're going to use for a comeback.

ZARROLI: But the rollout of the new product has been delayed until the second quarter of next year and Milanazi says that has hurt the company.[POST-BROADCAST CORRECTION: The BlackBerry 10 will be launched in the first quarter of 2013.]

At the same time, RIM is sharply cutting costs. It's laying off nearly a third of its workforce and closing manufacturing sites.

Chief Executive Thorsten Heins has been at RIM since January.

THORSTEN HEINS: We want to move forward with a lean and nimble organization that can act quickly, is decisive and is aligned around our growth opportunities and our customers.

ZARROLI: One shareholder noted approvingly today that no expensive refreshments were served at the meeting. Company officials also noted that they planned a big shakeup of the board and had hired a company to help carry it out. But with the smartphone market growing fast, RIM has limited time to turn things around and, even if the company survives, it's not clear whether it will ever again be the kind of dominant player in the field that it once was.
