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.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

NPR's business news starts with a box office high.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

INSKEEP: The new Batman movie "Dark Knight Rises" set a box office record over the past weekend. There were questions, of course, about how much money it would bring in after Friday's shooting in Colorado in a theater where the movie was showing.

NPR's Mandalit del Barco has more.

MANDALIT DEL BARCO, BYLINE: Despite the tragedy that surrounded its opening night, "The Dark Knight Rises" turned out to be the weekend's number one movie at the box office.

BARCO: Out of respect for the victims of the Colorado shooting, movie distributors made the unprecedented move of withholding their weekend revenue reports. But late yesterday, Warner Brothers announced their final installment of the new Batman trilogy earned nearly $161 million. That makes it the biggest non-3D movie opening ever - even more than its 2008 predecessor, "The Dark Knight."

JEFF BOCK: That is also the third-best debut of all time, cinematically.

BARCO: Box office analyst Jeff Bock says "The Dark Knight Rises" falls behind only "The Avengers" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows-Part 2," 3D movies whose tickets cost $4 more than the Batman movie. Bock says the numbers show audiences did not stay away from going to the movie last weekend, as some had predicted, because of the violence in Colorado.

BOCK: This was something pretty special. I mean, this was arguable the most anticipated three-quel since "Return of the Jedi." People really wanted to see the close of this trilogy. And at the beginning of the summer, "The Avengers" and "The Dark Knight Rises" were on everybody's must-see list.

BARCO: The debut earned less than what had been expected for "The Dark Knight Rises," up to $200 million dollars. But if you add in overseas profits, the movie brought in more than $248 million at the box office.
