"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.

The unassuming hero of Jonas Karlsson's clever, Kafkaesque parable is the opposite of a malcontent. Despite scant education, a limited social life, and no prospects for success as it is usually defined, he's that rarity, a most happy fella with an amazing ability to content himself with very little. But one day, returning to his barebones flat from his dead-end, part-time job at a video store, he finds an astronomical bill from an entity called W.R.D. He assumes it's a scam. Actually, it is more sinister-- and it forces him to take a good hard look at his life and values.

Here's How To Learn What The Supreme Court Says About Health Care

Jun 27, 2012

The biggest surprise Thursday morning at the Supreme Court will be if the justices do not issue their most-anticipated decision of the year — on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act; the health care overhaul enacted in 2010.

As we reported Monday, the court has said its last day of the current term is Thursday. And that's led to the logical conclusion that the health care decision will be released shortly after 10 a.m. ET, when the justices come to the bench. It's highly unlikely, court watchers say, that the justices have decided to give themselves another day before going on recess or have opted to delay a decision even longer.

We will pass along the news as soon as possible. NPR's health, legal and Washington teams will all be on the story and feeding NPR.org, the Newcast Desk and Morning Edition — which will still be on the air across much of the nation.

Of course, there will be many other valuable sources for information. We, as will much of the rest of the news media, will be pinging the court's website to read the decision.

We'll also be closely watching SCOTUSBlog's live blogging. As The Washington Post's Wonk Blog writes, SCOTUSBlog's Lyle Denniston says he aims to "be first and beat everybody" and about 250,000 readers are expected to follow along as he works the story.

This afternoon, by the way, Denniston posted "a reader's guide" the health care ruling.

Side note: SCOTUSBlog co-founder Tom Goldstein just posted his prediction about what the justices will say. He's going against the conventional wisdom. Goldstein thinks Chief Justice John Roberts will write an opinion for the majority that upholds the individual mandate requiring most Americans who aren't otherwise insured to buy health coverage. And he thinks the court will reject "the challenge to the Medicaid expansion." In other words, he's predicting a win for the Obama administration.

Soon after the decision is out, our friends on the Shots blog will be analyzing what it means for health care. Over at It's All Politics, the team will be figuring out what the decision t means for the 2012 campaign. It's All Politics has a fresh post this afternoon headlined "Read The Tea Leaves, But Justices (And Their Clerks) Aren't Telling."

NPR's Ari Shapiro, Carrie Johnson and Nina Totenberg will be on the Newcast, Morning Edition and All Things Considered later in the day. At 7 p.m. ET, NPR will be broadcasting and streaming special coverage of the decision and what it means. Click here to find an NPR member station.

Finally, if you need to do some catching up on the health care debate or just want a refresher, you might consult:

-- NPR.org's special series "Judging The Health Care Law."

-- SCOTUSBlog's "Affordable Care Act In Depth."
