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.

Cyclist Vinokourov Wins Gold Medal In Men's Road Race

Jul 28, 2012

Alexander Vinokourov of Kazakhstan won the gold medal in the men's cycling road race Saturday, edging Rigoberto Uran of Colombia in a late sprint in London. The 150-mile race ended in front of Buckingham Palace.

The Olympic medal completes a vindication for Vinokourov, 38, who has previously been suspended for doping, back in 2007. He retired last year, after breaking his leg at the Tour de France. But he returned to the French classic this summer.

Americans Tejay van Garderen and Taylor Phinney, both of whom train in Colorado, were in a breakaway group that stayed ahead of the main pack late into the race. Vinokourov and Uran emerged from that group to make it a two-man race for the finish line. The race turned on a moment when Uran glanced to the wrong side — precisely as Vinokourov dashed ahead for good.

Update at 11:45 p.m. EDT: After the race, Phinney told NBC, "Fourth is a good place, but it's the worst place you can get."

Phinney also credited van Garderen with keeping him in contention, and with enough energy to go for the last sprint. But it wasn't to be, as he was narrowly beaten. Phinney will now prepare for this week's cycling time trials. And he'll try to put Saturday's near-miss behind him.

"It's a good result for our team, but not necessarily what we wanted," he said.

Our original post continues:

The main group included Britain's sprinter Mark Cavendish and Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins, who took a turn at the head of the main pack late in the race, in an attempt to reach the breakaway.

Team Great Britain had planned for Wiggins to lead Cavendish, a devastatingly fast sprinter, into the final stretch and to a gold medal. But that plan was dashed when the breakaway group maintained a gap. Wiggins eventually faded to the back of the peloton.

With less than 10 miles to go, Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland was leading the breakaway group through a pair of turns when he went too wide and crashed into a barrier. He rejoined the race but finished well out of the running.

The race lasted nearly six hours.
