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.

Donald Trump wrapped up his public tryout of potential vice presidential candidates in Indiana Tuesday night with Gov. Mike Pence giving the final audition.

Four More Charged In Border Patrol Killing Linked To 'Fast And Furious'

Jul 9, 2012

The Justice Department has unsealed criminal charges against four more people it says are connected to the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, as the FBI offered a $1 million reward for information leading to the capture of the fugitives.

The criminal charges, unveiled in Tucson, Arizona, accuse Jesus Rosario Favela-Astorga, Ivan Soto-Barraza, Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes and Lionel Portillo-Meza of murder, conspiracy, and weapons offenses. Manuel Osorio-Arellanes has been custody since the shooting. Prosecutors say the men illegally entered the U.S. from Mexico in December 2010, allegedly to try to rob drug traffickers. Instead, they encountered agent Terry and three of his partners in a remote canyon area, where a firefight ensued.

Terry died from his wounds. Two weapons found near his body were later traced to Operation Fast and Furious, an effort by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to build blockbuster cases against violent Mexican drug cartels. That disclosure launched multiple congressional inquiries that culminated with the U.S House of Representatives voting 255-67 last month to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for withholding internal documents related to the department's response to congressional and media inquiries.

"Agent Terry served his country honorably and made the ultimate sacrifice in trying to protect it from harm," Holder said in a written statement. "And we will stop at nothing to bring those responsible for his murder to justice."

U.S. authorities say the four fugitives could be hiding in Mexico and the unsealing of an indictment handed up in November 2011 may draw publicity to help find them.

Two men are already in custody, captured shortly after the shooting.

Terry's family has started a foundation to honor his service, offer scholarships and urge authorities to do more to get to the bottom of the Fast and Furious operation.

"It is also our personal mission to guarantee that any mistakes made by the United States Department of Justice are never made again," the family said in a news release to reporters last weekend.
