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.

'Once More,' Passing The Torch To One And All

Aug 1, 2012

Representing Europe in NPR's Poetry Games is Slovenian poet Ales Steger. Steger's first work translated into English, The Book of Things, won last year's Best Translated Book Award for Poetry. The translator was poet Brian Henry, who also translated Steger's Olympic poem, "Once More."

Henry explains that the phrase "tralala oompah" in the poem approximates the Slovenian expression "tralala hopsasa," which "is meant to combine the airiness of 'tralala' with a plodding, folksy rhythm ('oompah' is the closest equivalent in English to 'hopsa,' an onomatopoeic sound of the brass instruments used in Slovenian folk music)."

Henry continues: "In a way, the poem is calling for everyone (including 'bankers with pacemakers') to participate in the Olympics, and for the Olympics to affect everyone. I think the poem is a lightly humorous call to action (reinforced by the title, which would be translated as 'Encore' if the poem were translated into French)."

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

More verse now, because every day this week, we're hearing competitors in our Poetry Games, MORNING EDITION's celebration of the Olympics in verse.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

MONTAGNE: Today, competing from Slovenia, poet Ales Steger, who found inspiration in Olympic diver Greg Louganis. Louganis famously suffered a concussion during a dive at the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul. He went on to win two gold medals there. Louganis also won gold in Los Angeles and silver in Montreal. Ales Steger's award-winning poetry is translated by fellow poet Brian Henry. He says the poem, titled "Once More," is a call to action for everyone to participate in the Olympics, and for the Olympics to affect everyone. Here, Brian Henry reads Ales Steger's entry into the Poetry Games.

BRIAN HENRY: "Once More." (Reading) If a great idea is translated into a body, then Greg Louganis is an Einstein. If a body is translated into a great idea, Einstein is tralala oompah. Which gods do chess grandmasters dream about? It is time, my love. We all participate in this outrageous activity. Let bankers with pacemakers run the marathon. Let naked sumo wrestlers decide our common fate. Let us pierce the concrete with our heads. Every time, it's a top score, and we are in no hurry to get anywhere.
