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.

'News Of The World' Editors Charged In Hacking

We've been following some big developments today in the News of the World phone-hacking scandal in Britain. Prosecutors are charging eight people - including a former top aide to Prime Minister David Cameron - and a woman who was Rupert Murdoch's top lieutenant. NPR's Philip Reeves reports.

PHILIP REEVES, BYLINE: Prosecutors have spent many long days plowing through a mountain of information garnered by one of the biggest investigations mounted by Scotland Yard. They've studied allegations that hundreds of people were victims of phone hacking by staff at Murdoch's now-closed News of the World, including former senior British government ministers, film stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, and ex-Beatle Paul McCartney. Now those same prosecutors have decided there are grounds for bringing criminal charges. The announcement was made by Alison Levitt, a lawyer from the Crown Prosecution Service.

ALISON LEVITT: I have concluded that in relation to eight of those 13 suspects, there is sufficient evidence for there to be a realistic prospect of conviction in relation to one or more offenses.

REEVES: Andy Coulson is among the eight now facing prosecution. He's a former editor of the News of the World. Six months after standing down because of the hacking affair, Coulson controversially became Prime Minister David Cameron's communications chief. He resigned from that job last year.

Coulson now faces charges of conspiring to intercept communications, including an allegation of hacking the voice mail of a murdered 13-year-old, Milly Dowler, the case that turned the hacking affair into an international scandal. This is awkward for Cameron - a fact conceded by one of Cameron's own Conservative colleagues, John Whittingdale.

JOHN WHITTINGDALE: Obviously, it is embarrassing, the fact that a former director of communications is being charged with criminal offenses. But David Cameron has said very clearly that he was assured by Mr. Coulson he had no involvement, no knowledge, and he accepted that.

REEVES: Rebekah Brooks is also on the list. She's already facing trial on other counts. Now she's being charged in connection with phone hacking, as well. Brooks was a shining star, a good friend of Prime Minister Cameron, a former News of the World editor who rose to become the head of Murdoch's British subsidiary, News International. She's issued a statement, denying guilt.
