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.

Ask Me Another's grand prize winners have walked away with some enviable, one-of-a-kind gifts, which were chosen and presented by none other than their show's Mystery Guest.

Here are some of the season's best prizes:

Anagha Apte is the winner of this week's show, featuring Momofuku Milk Bar chef Christina Tosi. Anagha took home a couple Milk Bar pies, a signed copy of the Momofuku Milk Bar Cookbook and a Milk Bar tote bag.

"I shared the pies with a group of friends a couple of days after the show. One was a good friend of mine visiting from DC for his birthday. He became an instant crack pie addict and finished all of it.

As for the cookbook, I read the entire thing and meant to make some of the things in it, the meantime a Milk Bar opened in Carroll Gardens so instead I've been working my way through all the delicious things I read about. Next up: volcanoes."

ESPN's Jeremy Schaap told us about witnessing Gloucester, England's annual cheese-rolling competition, so winner Leslie Billig won a gift certificate to Murray's Cheese in New York City.

Former C.I.A. agent Peter Earnest took Bill MacDonald and his family on a private tour of Washington D.C's Spy Museum, but if he told us about it, he'd have to kill us.

Paula Henning was the winner of one of our Washington D.C. shows.

"The tour [of NPR headquarters] with [correspondent/host David Greene] was great. We had lunch at Busboys and Poets, and then I got shown the whole building. He was really informative about how NPR works, how they do the live and taped material, etc. He took a great photo of me hamming it up at the mic in one of the empty newsrooms with the NPR News sign behind me. Very educational, and he's also a genuinely super nice guy; me and my friends have him on the hook for a pool party sometime this summer up in Baltimore."

Kyle Warren won a personalized voicemail tag, sung in the style of a barbershop quartet by The Gregory Brothers.

Earlier in the season, Melissa Kirsch won lunch and a closet consultation from Mystery Guest Simon Doonan, and Judge John Hodgman bestowed winner Tom Kelso with a personal judgment via Skype.

We picked Margaret Bortner to tag-team a celebrity trivia match alongside Meghan McCain, and for Margaret's efforts, we awarded her with her very own Twitter account under the moniker @askmemargaret. Please help her reach 1 billion followers by 2013.
