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.


Michael Phelps Wins Record 20th Medal; Soni Sets Record In Breaststroke

Aug 2, 2012

Breaking News Update at 3:27 p.m. ET: Phelps Wins Gold For 20th Medal.

Michael Phelps has won the men's 200-meter individual medley at the 2012 Summer Games, winning his 20th Olympic medal — and his first individual gold medal in London.

Phelps led Lochte by .16 of one second at the first turn, in the butterfly. He maintained his lead in the backstroke — the discipline Lochte had just raced in half an hour earlier in the day.

Phelps was close to world-record pace throughout the race, maintaining his lead through the breaststroke and freestyle. But at 1:54.27, he finished just short of the record held by Lochte, who finished second to take the silver medal.

Phelps swam in the third lane, right next to Loche, in lane four. Next to them was Laszlo Cseh, who finished third.

The event is Lochte's final individual event at the London Games.

Correction: Early versions of this story had a headline that incorrectly stated Phelps had won 20 gold medals. As readers helpfully pointed out, that's not true. Phelps has won 16 Olympic gold medals, and 20 total. I regret the error.

Update at 4:10 p.m. ET: With the victory, Phelps also achieved an unprecedented feat: winning the same individual swimming event in three consecutive Olympics.

And the race also represented his last Olympic showdown with his friend and teammate, Lochte.

As for the two Americans' remaining events, Phelps will try for another medal Friday, in the finals of the 100m butterfly. He won his semifinal heat moments after winning the individual medley.

And while both swimmers are eligible for the U.S. medley relay, it's not clear whether Lochte will get a spot on the team.

Update at 3:48 p.m. ET:

Dutch swimmer Ranomi Kromowidjojo won the women's 100m freestyle gold medal, beating a field that included Americans Jessica Hardy and Missy Franklin. Kromowidjojo set a new Olympic record of 53.00 seconds, beating Aliaksandra Herasimenia of Belarus and Yi Tang of China. Franklin placed fifth, at 53.64 seconds, and Hardy finished eighth.

Our original post continues:

American Rebecca Soni has won a gold medal at the London Summer Olympics, winning the women's 200-meter breaststroke in a race that she led from start to finish. She also set a new world record, at 2 minutes and 19.59 seconds.

Update at 3 p.m. ET: Tyler Clary has won gold in the 200m backstroke, defeating Team USA teammate Ryan Lochte, who won bronze, and Japan's Ryosuke Irie, who won silver. Clary set a new Olympic record with his winning time of 1:53.41. Irie was .37 of one second behind, and Lochte trailed by .53.

Lochte's race began just 31 minutes before the scheduled start of his heralded race against teammate Michael Phelps, in the 200-meter individual medley.

The women's breaststroke win is a vindication for Soni, 25, who lost to Lithuania's Ruta Meilutyte in the 100-meter breaststroke. Meilytyte did not enter the 200-meter event, in which Soni is the defending gold medalist from the 2008 Beijing Games.

In taking charge of Thursday's final, Soni broke the world record of 2 minutes and 20 seconds that she had set in her qualifying race Wednesday evening.

In an interview of Soni by NPR's Margot Adler earlier this year, Soni described how she was working on her starts, and her turns. And she also revealed that she'd also finally learned how to take a day off from her rigorous training.
