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.


Let's Catch Up: U.S. Women Rowers Prevail, And NBC's Water Polo Coverage

Aug 2, 2012

Good morning. Here's a rundown of the news that's catching our eye this morning, from the London Olympics:

-- The women's eight rowing competition was won by the U.S. team, in an encore of their gold-medal performance in Beijing 2008. The team, which led from the start and stayed ahead of silver medalists Canada at the end, consists of Mary Whipple (coxswain), Caryn Davies, Caroline Lind, Eleanor Logan, Meghan Musnicki, Taylor Ritzel, Esther Lofgren, Susan Francia and Erin Cafaro.

-- American judoka Kayla Harrison has made it into the Olympic semifinal round. Next up: a bout with the top-ranked Mayra Aguiar, of Brazil. The final takes place at 11 a.m. ET.

-- As of this morning, China and the USA are tied atop the medal standings, with 30 apiece. China has 17 golds, while the U.S. has 13. South Korea and France has 12 and 13 medals, respectively. I know, I know: who cares about medals? But still.

-- NBC's coverage has ruffled the feathers of folks who want more live streaming. But one broadcast apparently got a little too live — when a Spanish water polo player's suit was tugged away, exposing part of her chest in a match with the U.S. team Wednesday.

-- Many folks have told me they had trouble understanding what the Olympic opening ceremony was all about. But I hadn't heard it called a "mass satanic ritual disguised as a celebration of Britain and sport" — until the purported deception was laid bare by former soccer goalie David Icke, who has also done commentary for the BBC, during the 1988 Olympics. Hmm. I wonder why they didn't have him back...

-- And, perhaps inspired by those TV commercials that show Ryan Lochte swimming all the way from the U.S. to England, a British man has tried to "carry the Olympic spirit across the Atlantic." That's the word from The Daily Mail. But instead of the 3,600 miles he needed to cover, the Londoner was rescued "off the shore of France" — 300 yards off the shore, to be more precise. Just another reminder of the risks of trying to emulate what has only been simulated.
