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.

In Egypt, Clinton Promotes Dialogue With Military

This is WEEKEND EDITION from NPR News. Good morning, I'm David Greene.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton heads for Israel today; this, after leaving Egypt, where she met with that country's new Islamist president and also, the head of the powerful military council. Secretary Clinton said Egypt needs to continue its transition to a civilian-led democracy. But that message was delivered gently, a sign that Washington sees a long and uncertain transition ahead. NPR's Peter Kenyon has more from Cairo.

PETER KENYON, BYLINE: Secretary Clinton's motorcade rolled by protesters chanting outside the presidential palace - a sight former Secretary Condoleezza Rice would not have seen in 2005, when she declared that the U.S. had not engaged the Muslim Brotherhood, and would not.

But Egypt has changed, and so has U.S. policy. The Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed Morsi welcomed Clinton to the palace ingrained in most Egyptians' memory as the home of Hosni Mubarak, while the convicted Mubarak sat in a military hospital.

Clinton said the U.S. wants Egypt to continue its transition to democracy, with the military returning to a purely national security role. But she said this is for Egyptians to negotiate. And she noted that in the context of the Arab Spring, the military council - known as SCAF - had gotten some things right.

SECRETARY HILLARY CLINTON: As compared to what we're seeing in Syria - which is the military murdering their own people - the SCAF here protected the Egyptian nation. And we commend them for overseeing a free, fair election process. But there is more work ahead.

KENYON: The largely Islamist parliament elected in that free and fair contest was dissolved by the military council, in the wake of a high court ruling. The military is also threatening to appoint its own panel to draft a new constitution, amid fears that the generals want to place their power and perks beyond the reach of the law.

At the moment, alarm bells are going off in various quarters. Some worry that the military is set to impose a new version of Hosni Mubarak's authoritarian state. Others fear a Muslim Brotherhood agenda of amassing power and creating a Sunni Muslim theocracy. Again, Clinton sought to provide some historical perspective.

CLINTON: I would only add that this is not an uncommon issue in these transitions. If you look at Latin America, you look at Asia, you look at the former Soviet Union; other countries have gone through these transitions, especially from authoritarian, military-dominated rule.

KENYON: Left unsaid was the hard, historical reality that these transitions can take years - if not decades, and often involve painful reversals.

From here, Clinton travels to Israel, where for decades diplomats have seen peacemaking efforts crash against the stone wall of occupation, or evaporate in explosions inspired by religious extremism. One thing worth preserving, Clinton said, is the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel.

CLINTON: More than three decades ago, Egypt and Israel signed a treaty that has allowed a generation to grow up without knowing war. And on this foundation, we will work together to build a just, comprehensive, regional peace in the Middle East.

KENYON: Many here want to amend that treaty. But Egypt's foreign minister said Egypt will respect it as long as Israel does.
