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.

LCD Price-Fixing Ends With Historic Settlement

In San Francisco today, a federal judge gave preliminary approval to a multimillion dollar settlement. It comes in response to a class action lawsuit over the cost of LCD computer and television screens. The deal, once it's finalized, will be the largest settlement ever in a class action case about price-fixing.

From member station KQED, Aarti Shahani explains.

AARTI SHAHANI, BYLINE: Plaintiffs claim that companies selling liquid crystal displays during the 1990s through 2006 set prices artificially high. Toshiba, LG and AU Optronics moved to settle just weeks before trial.

In district court today, Judge Susan Illston asked if there were any objections to the terms of the LCD settlement. Two dozen lawyers were in the room and not one raised a hand. Illston joked, ah, now we're all hand-in-hand, step in step.

Craig Corbitt is lead co-counsel for the plaintiffs.

CRAIG CORBITT: There was no oppositions to the motion, which was the first time that's ever happened in the five or six years this case has been going on.

SHAHANI: The total deal involves ten Asia-based companies and over one billion dollars in damages. Corbitt says the big sum should teach them a lesson.

CORBITT: For foreign companies who may not have been as finely tuned to price-fixing, and maybe there was more of a culture of getting together and meeting about prices and so forth, that we'll see less of that going forward.

SHAHANI: Attorneys for the defendants in court today declined to comment. But during the case, companies admitted that they held so-called crystal meetings in hotels and bars in Taiwan, to set the price of LCD screens. Toshiba was not part of those meetings and is responsible for just $21 million of the total payout.

Still, Adam Miller with the California Attorney General's office, says Toshiba is equally guilty.

ADAM MILLER, ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE, CALIFORNIA: Under the law, if they participated in the global conspiracy, they're jointly and severally liable for all of the damages.

SHAHANI: The civil suit follows a Justice Department investigation that resulted in criminal prosecutions of top executives. Once the LCD settlement is finalized in November, consumers should be able to collect cash.
