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!":

IM, IM, IM Superman: Morning-After Texts Between Superman, Wonder Woman

Aug 22, 2012
Originally published on August 22, 2012 1:04 pm

Next week, in Justice League #12, The Man of Steel and the Amazing Amazon will ... get their respective super-powered grooves on, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Writer Geoff Johns hints that some event — possibly tragic — will impact every member of the Justice League, and cause Superman and Wonder Woman to seek solace in each other and move from super-powered colleagues to power couple. This is no one-issue stunt: "This is the new status quo," says Johns, adding that the relationship will have a seismic impact on all the heroes and villains in the DC universe.

... "Power couple." Oy.

The two have been romantically linked in the past, by writers like Frank Miller (The Dark Knight Strikes Back) and John Byrne (Action Comics #600). But Miller's romance took place in an alternate-future that exists inside the writer's increasingly wackadoo head, while Byrne's Superman and Wonder Woman were two ships — er, fully armed and operational battle stations — passing in the night.

This isn't quite the scandal it could be. DC's universe-wide "New 52" relaunch dissolved the Superman-Lois Lane marriage last year, even as it served to further complicate Wonder Woman's already complicated love life.

In her own post-reboot title, written by Brian Azzarello, Wonder Woman is too busy dealing with gods-and-monsters-style mythic horror to worry much about making kissy-face with anyone, while in the pages of Justice League, writer Geoff Johns not-so-coyly suggests that Diana's broken her share of hearts (male and female, mortal and im-) in her time.

Will these two crazy kids make a go of it? Will the gossip pages fill with all manner of wild speculation over SuWon KalDi SUP4WON?

After the jump, NPR's Monkey See has intercepted a series of texts between a "BigRedESS" and a "1derWymyn" which may provide a clue.
