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.

Olympic Women Soccer Update

It's MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.


And I'm Renee Montagne.

At the London Olympics, there's a lot of interest in a rematch coming up this Thursday, with a gold medal on the line. The U.S. women's soccer team will be playing Japan, a team that beat the Americans last year in a shoot-out at the end of the final match of the World Cup.

But first, the U.S. players had to get past Canada last night, and they did - barely, as NPR's Howard Berkes reports.

HOWARD BERKES, BYLINE: When the two teams walked onto the field at historic Old Trafford stadium in Manchester last night...

UNIDENTIFIED MAN: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome the national teams of Canada and the United States of America.


BERKES: ...Canada was clearly the underdog. In the last 11 years, in 26 games, Canada failed to beat the U.S. But the Canadian team includes Christine Sinclair, one of the top scorers ever, and she and her teammates didn't act second-best.


BERKES: This was Canadian Sinclair's first goal of the night. She worked around two American defenders in front of the goal, then swept the ball past the outstretched body of keeper Hope Solo. That was 22 minutes into the game. A half-hour later, American Megan Rapinoe didn't bend it like Beckham. She wrapped it like Rapinoe, sending a corner kick halfway across the width of the field, the ball wrapping around the post of the goal without anyone else touching it.


BERKES: That's what 36,000 people sound like when they tweet all at once: OMG, did you see that? And it continued like that: Sinclair again, Rapinoe again, Sinclair again. Then they let other players have fun. The game was tied after 90 minutes, and then after two hours. But with just 30 seconds to go in extra time, the ball flew toward the head of Team USA's Alex Morgan, and she butted it in the net. That gave the U.S. the 4-3 win. American Coach Pia Sundhage.

PIA SUNDHAGE: The team refuses to lose, and they always find a way to win. And if you look in their eyes, if you listen to Abby, there is something special, there is something where they have an extra gear.

BERKES: Abby is Abby Wambach, the star forward of the U.S. team, whose single goal of the game has her tied with Sinclair on the all-time scoring list.

ABBY WAMBACH: Moments like this are what make sports so cool, literally doing something that was unlikely, and everybody counted you out.

BERKES: The Canadians didn't quite see it that way, blaming the tying goal on a rare penalty. The referee called a violation of the six-second rule, in which a goalkeeper can't hold the ball for more than six seconds. Sundhage says she'd never seen the rule applied. Canadian coach John Herdman defends his goalie.

JOHN HERDMAN: It wasn't like she purposely tried to slow the game down, where you see goalkeepers really cheating. And the ref, for whatever reason - I don't know. She's got that to live with, and, you know, we'll move on from this. I wonder if she'll be able to.

BERKES: Team USA moves on to the gold medal match against Japan. It's a chance for redemption, given the World Cup loss last year in a tie-breaking shootout. Abby Wambach.

WAMBACH: All of us have dreamed about it. We've had nightmares about it, even, what happened last summer. This is an opportunity for us to - not even redemption, to prove ourselves, to let whatever happened last summer go and take the gold medal, because we believe that we've earned it.

BERKES: The gold medal match is Thursday in London.
