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.


Badminton Federation 'Looking Forward' In Response To Scandal

Aug 5, 2012

On this final day of badminton at the London Olympics, leaders of the Badminton World Federation (BWF) were vague about how they will respond to a match-throwing scandal at the games.

At a news conference at the Wembley Arena in London, BWF president Dr. Kang Young Joon of South Korea said, "We will take appropriate action post the London 2012 Olympic Games to avoid similar incidents in the future."

Dr. Joon added that BWF will "carefully assess ... the present regulations and also look to create increased awareness among players and their entourages about the ethical standards of badminton."

But Dr. Joon and other federation officials were short on details, saying only that the matter will be on the agenda when the BWF executive board meets in November.

The Olympic badminton competition was scandalized last week when four women's doubles pairs from China, South Korea and Indonesia appeared to deliberately play poorly in their matches.

A new round-robin format for Olympic competition permits teams to qualify for later rounds while still playing preliminary matches. They can then manipulate the match-ups in later rounds, and avoid undesirable opponents, by intentionally losing remaining preliminary contests.

Last Tuesday, four doubles teams were roundly booed by spectators as players repeatedly shot serves into the net, engaged in extraordinarily weak volleys and hit easy shots out-of-bounds.

Within 24 hours, all eight players were disqualified from competition, including Wang Xiaoli and Yu Chang of China, the world champions and gold medal favorites.

In response to a request for details about the continuing investigation, BWF Secretary General Thomas Lund said "we don't see this as a specific case looking backwards but we more see this as a specific case where we need to look forward."

That suggests the federation will not continue to investigate allegations that some of the disqualified players were told to throw their matches by coaches or other team officials. Lund said the review to date has not produced any evidence of involvement by coaches or others.

"No federation...can avoid having some incidents," Lund noted, pointing to other scandals involving the International Olympic Committee and other sports federations. "The real problem actually occurs if you cannot deal with it. And I think the [BWF] executive board and the badminton community have actually felt that this has been dealt with swiftly and efficiently."

Dr. Kang said, without intended irony, that "as the London Olympics 2012 have unfolded, badminton fans here and across the world have been treated to an amazing spectacle at Wembley Arena."

After the news conference, the competition continued, with Lin Dan of China beating Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia, 15-21, 21-10, and 21-19. The contest was a rematch of the final in Beijing four years ago, when Lin also won. Lee's silver makes him Malaysia's first multi-medalist in the Olympics.
