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.


Cheer Up Toronto, 16-0 Loss Isn't A Major League Worst

As bad as the players on the Toronto Blue Jays must feel about losing to the Oakland Athletics by a score of 16-0 Wednesday night, they can at least take comfort in knowing that other teams have suffered worse losses in the past.

As Yahoo Sports recounted:

-- Philadelphia's Phillies were pounded by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1929. Final score: 28-6.

-- The New York Giants' thumping of the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1944, winning 26-8. Correction at 2:45 p.m. ET: Our thanks to reader "Tom Delfs" who spotted that we had mistakenly reversed things and credited the Dodgers with that win. He adds that: "In the game, Phil Weintraub of the Giants went 5-for-5, driving in 11 runs, and hitting for the cycle (a single, two doubles, a triple, and a homerun). The Dodgers' final pitcher for the day was Tommy Warren, who was a rookie at age 26. He pitched five innings and gave up 15 runs."

-- The Chicago White Sox destroyed the then-Kansas City Athletics 29-6 in 1955.

-- And in 2007, the Baltimore Orioles watched as the Texas Rangers scored 30 runs. The Orioles reached home just three times.

The Rangers' 30 runs is a "modern era" record for most in one game, by the way.

So take heart, Blue Jays. It could have been — and has been — worse.

Then again, at least in those previous debacles the losing teams scored.

Update at 2:55 p.m. ET. Readers Remember Some Other Lopsided Losses.

From the comments thread:

-- "evan dreyer" reminds us that the New York Yankees lost to the Cleveland Indians 22-0 on August 31, 2004. He adds that "The Bronx Bombers went on to win the division. We wont talk about what happened after that."

-- "(Another_Great_Idea)" says at least the loss didn't happen on Opening Day, citing the April 18, 1991, loss of the White Sox to the Detroit Tigers on the occasion of the new Comiskey Park's opening. The final score was 16-0. (We used his "nickname" because he's got an often-used handle that's one step to the risque side of monikers such as "Ben Dover.")
