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 vegetables 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.

Last Of The Early Voters In Ohio Make A Scene

For thousands of voters in Ohio, Election Day is going to be a day of rest — because they worked hard to vote on Sunday.

Thousands stood in long lines at voting sites in northeast Ohio, in southwest Ohio and in central Ohio. But the Franklin County Early Voting Center may have had the most carnival-like atmosphere.

It was set up along a six-lane thoroughfare near an interstate in an old department store. The idea was to create easy access with lots of free parking. But that wasn't the case on Sunday. Traffic was backed up nearly a mile in both directions, and parking was at a premium — some voters parked across the street and dodged cars as they ran across six lanes to reach the polling station.

And once there, it was hard to find the end of the line. It went from the front of the building past two other closed stores, then around the side, then back to an apartment complex. Then it snaked back beside a big-box furniture store and weaved through rows of parked cars.

The scene was not unexpected. It was the only weekend voting in Ohio for the 2012 cycle, and it only came to pass after a lengthy court battle between Ohio's Republican secretary of state and, in part, the Obama campaign that ended at the U.S. Supreme Court. The court said ballots could be cast on the final weekend before the election.

And so a scene unfolded. A volunteer in a Democratic Party T-shirt called new arrivals to the end of the line with a bullhorn, as a Republican volunteer stood by and tried to hand out sample ballots. All along the line, activists tried to get voters' attention with activities that ranged from the expected to the bizarre. There were dancing people costumed as Sesame Street characters, in a clear effort to remind voters that Republican Mitt Romney doesn't support federal funding for public television.

There was a Lincoln impersonator in a Democratic Party T-shirt. There were mimes performing choreographed routines to religious music. There were abortion rights and anti-abortion activists carrying dueling signs and following each other around. There were food trucks. And there was even a man selling election-related trinkets for those who wanted to remember the 2012 election.

The wait to get to the front door was easily 90 minutes, and once inside, another massive line with another 90-minute wait to reach a voting booth.

But most people were in good spirits, resigned to the wait for the opportunity to cast their ballot early. However, with all the passion, there were a few arguments. Many started around the signs carried by the abortion rights and anti-abortion activists. A lone advocate in a heavy-duty outdoor worksuit and ball cap carrying a pro-Romney sign got into a shouting match with an Obama supporter while observers chanted "PBS! PBS!"

With all this going on, the quiet inside the building was almost jarring.

In the end, the long line kept moving. A Board of Elections spokesman said about 800 people were voting each hour. A total of 3,700 people voted during the four hours the Franklin site was open on Sunday — though it had to stay open late to accommodate those who were in line when it closed at 5 p.m.

About 15,000 voters cast ballots at this site this weekend, though those who did so on Friday or Saturday weren't treated to the entertainment that marked Sunday.
