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.

Chief Justice's Critics Don't Understand What Judges Do, Gonzales Says

Jun 29, 2012

Conservative critics who say that Chief Justice John Roberts is some kind of traitor to their movement because he was the deciding vote in favor of upholding the Obama administration's Affordable Care Act "don't understand how these judges are supposed to discharge their responsibilities," Bush-era Attorney General Alberto Gonzales told NPR this morning.

"There are winners and losers with every decision," Gonzales said to Tell Me More host Michel Martin. A justice's "job is to do your job." He has, Gonzales added, "every confidence in Chief Justice Roberts ... and I stand behind my recommendation to President [George W.] Bush regarding his elevation as chief justice."

Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito, Bush's two nominees to the court, will be the former president's "most lasting and brightest legacy," Gonzales said.

As for the decision and what happens next, Gonzales said the health care issue "now moves to the political arena, where quite frankly it should be."

Speaking of politics, Michel asked about the contempt of Congress citation approved Thursday by the Republican-led House against current Attorney General Eric Holder, who the majority of lawmakers say has not turned over all the documents they need to see as Congress investigates the botched gun-tracking operation known as Fast and Furious.

Congress, Gonzales said, has "the right and obligation to find out exactly why" a federal agent was killed in Mexico by a gun involved in the operation. And the Department of Justice and White House should also be doing all they can to determine what went wrong.

But, while saying that he wanted to "limit my comments" because there's an ongoing investigation and he wants to be "considerate" of Holder, Gonzales did add that "we're in a political season and sometimes there are political motives behind decisions that occur in Washington."

"I'm not suggesting that's what is going on here," Gonzales said, "but that's been my experience."
