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.


British Elbow Into An Exclusive Medals Podium

Aug 5, 2012



There is still a week to go at the Olympics, but it's a good bet that after all the drama ends, Britons will look back on last night as the moment the Games turned in their favor - maybe not in the overall medal count but the host country got a huge psychological lift as Team Great Britain snagged three track and field gold medals on the Games' biggest stage. NPR's Tom Goldman reports.

TOM GOLDMAN, BYLINE: With the start of track and field this weekend, there wasn't a lot of hope that Great Britain's growing medal tally would soar at the Olympic Stadium. History was against Team GB. The last time the Summer Games were held in London - 1948 - the host country didn't win a single track and field gold medal.


GOLDMAN: But this was the soundtrack at the Olympic Stadium for the better part of an hour last night. The dins spanned three events: women's heptathlon, men's long jump, men's 10,000 meters. Team GB athletes won all three events. Talk about ending a drought. London Mayor Boris Johnson often gets a hearty laugh for his hyperbolic statements. But on this night, you wouldn't have found a soul exiting the stadium who disagreed with the mayor, who said of the winners: their extraordinary efforts have brought rapture to streets, parks and living rooms in London and all over the country, if not the planet. OK, Boris - a planet too far, but the rest - spot-on.

JESSICA ENNIS: Just actually realizing that, you know, I've achieved one of my greatest goals and you never quite think that you're going to get there. And so when you do it's just really overwhelming.

GOLDMAN: After Team GB poster girl Jessica Ennis overcame huge expectations and won the seven-event heptathlon, Greg Rutherford leaped out of nowhere to take the long jump. Like Ennis, he took his victory lap with the Union Jack wrapped around his shoulders. And just as the men's 10,000-meter run began to unfold - 29 men, 25 laps - and you could have forgiven stadium goers for dashing out to take a loo break or grab a sausage on a roll. What would be the point of sticking around to see another African sweep? Since 1988, African runners have claimed every medal in this event except one.


GOLDMAN: But with 600 meters to run, this breathtaking race was completely up for grabs. Up to 10 runners were bunched at the front. Of course, that included Ethiopians, Eritreans and Kenyans. But wait, a Brit and a Yank? Training partners and buddies Mo Farah - the Brit - and Galen Rupp - the Yank - were right there. And with a surge down the stretch, they crossed the line one-two. They found each other, hugged, then Farah collapsed onto the track, zapped by exhaustion and euphoria. Later, Rupp describes how they worked the race together, with Farah, the reigning 5,000 meter world champion providing timely comfort.

GALEN RUPP: I remember during the middle of the race, you know, I was starting to get a little antsy. Tadese and some of those guys were surging and I was kind of wondering whether to go. And, you know, he kind of tapped me on the shoulder and was like, you know, just relax, mate. Everything's fine. They're going to come back. We just got play it cool right now and save everything to the finish.

GOLDMAN: The Somali-born Farah was another one of those Team GB athletes carried along in this event by a wave of adoration and hope. He said he made a decision not to let it crush him.

MO FARAH: When I walked in the crowd, I wasn't think these people want me to win. I was thinking all these people are here. They're supporting me. I've got more support than everyone else. I have to do well rather than using it in a negative way. So, that helped me a lot.

GOLDMAN: Farah and Rupp train under legendary long-distance runner Alberto Salazar. Last night, Salazar said the race plan of winning in the last 100 meters worked flawlessly. And he offered up Farah and Rupp as an example of a British-U.S. distance running alliance he hopes will flourish now that they've elbowed their way onto a very exclusive medals podium and given these Olympics one of the biggest moments on one of the biggest nights.
