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.

Part Of Romney's Foreign Itinerary: Raising Money

Jul 25, 2012
Originally published on July 25, 2012 7:29 pm

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is on a weeklong trip in which he's scheduled to meet with three prime ministers, give two speeches and attend the opening ceremonies of the London Olympics. On a more practical level, he'll also raise some campaign cash.

This trip is designed to highlight how Romney would fix the failings he sees in President Obama's foreign policy.

Romney opened his attack Tuesday while still in the U.S. In an address to the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Reno, Nev., he lit into the Obama administration's relationship with Israel.

"Since I wouldn't venture into another country to question American foreign policy, I will tell you right here — before I leave — what I think of this administration's shabby treatment of one of our finest friends," he said.

On Sunday night in Jerusalem — scheduled in between a day of religious fasting and a day of high-level meetings — is a Romney fundraising dinner. Tickets start at $50,000 per couple.

Fundraising Abroad

"I think that there's been an incredible response to Gov. Romney's fundraiser," says Jonny Daniels, an Israeli political consultant with close ties to the Republican Party. "I know dozens of people that are flying out to Israel from the United States, literally for a few days, just to be in Israel when the governor's there."

He says the travelers include leaders of the Republican Jewish Coalition and other members of the GOP elite.

"Which, in fact, in terms of what Gov. Romney's doing, strengthens his ties with these people," Daniels says. "Enables them to be with him not just for a fundraiser, but to be with him in a day in a place that they call home."

The Jerusalem event comes after Romney holds a pair of fundraisers in London on Thursday — a reception priced at $2,500 per person and a dinner costing $25,000 and up. Both are aimed at donors in the banking industry.

There's a little awkwardness involved. Originally, Barclays CEO Bob Diamond was going to be one of the hosts. But since then, the bank has paid $450 million in fines to settle charges that it rigged the LIBOR, the rate that international banks charge for short-term loans to one another. The bank faces a criminal investigation in England, and Diamond has resigned as CEO.

Still, another of Romney's fundraising hosts is Patrick Durkin, the top lobbyist in Barclays' U.S. operation. He's also a Romney campaign bundler — a solicitor of contributions.

The nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics says Durkin has previously raised more than $1 million.

Durkin and the Romney campaign both declined comment for this story.

Americans Overseas

Robert Weissman, president of Public Citizen, a liberal group that criticizes big money in politics, says Romney "is obviously raising huge sums of money from across the country and apparently from across the world, but he is focusing very heavily on the Wall Street sector."

Weissman says neither candidate nor donors seem deterred by the LIBOR scandal or other problems that have rolled through the financial sector.

"So I suppose it's no worse to be doing that in London than it is to be doing it in New York, but it's a sad state of affairs," he says.

Now, all of these events are raising money from American citizens and permanent residents.

"Best estimates are that there are 6 [million] or 7 million American citizens who live outside the U.S.," says Rob Carolina, chairman of Democrats Abroad United Kingdom.

He points out that it's illegal to solicit political money from anyone who isn't a citizen or a green-card holder. And he says the law is taken seriously.

"I'm typically asked to produce my passport at the time a contribution is made. Or alternatively, if a contribution is made online, it's become commonplace to ask people to scan and submit a copy of their passport for records," he says.

Carolina says Americans overseas are often eager to do more in politics than just vote.

And as campaign budgets keep pushing upward, politicians from would-be congressmen to would-be presidents are looking overseas — especially to London.

In the last presidential campaign, the visitors to London included Republican Rudolph Giuliani, Democrat Dennis Kucinich, former President Clinton and future first lady Michelle Obama.

Two weeks ago, the Obama campaign held a $250-per-person reception. And last July, Romney attended a reception in London that records indicate grossed about $73,000.

AUDIE CORNISH, HOST:

Mitt Romney has embarked on his foreign trip. He arrived in London early today. The Republican presidential candidate is scheduled to meet three prime ministers, give two speeches and attend the opening ceremonies of the London Olympics. He'll also raise some campaign cash, as NPR's Peter Overby reports.

PETER OVERBY, BYLINE: The trip is designed to highlight how Mitt Romney would fix the failings he sees in President Obama's foreign policy. Romney opened his attack yesterday. Addressing the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Reno, Nevada, he lit into the Obama Administration's relationship with Israel.

MITT ROMNEY: Since I wouldn't venture into another country to question American foreign policy, I'll tell you right here before I leave what I think of this administration's shabby treatment of one of our finest friends.

OVERBY: And, on Sunday night in Jerusalem, scheduled in between a day of religious fasting and a day of high level meetings is a Romney fundraising dinner. Tickets start at $50,000 per couple.

Jonny Daniels is an Israeli political consultant with close ties to the Republican Party.

JONNY DANIELS: I think that there's been an incredible response to Governor Romney's fundraiser. I know dozens of people that are flying out to Israel from the United States, literally for a few days, just to be in Israel when the governor's there.

OVERBY: He says the travelers include leaders of the Republican Jewish Coalition and other members of the GOP elite.

DANIELS: Which, in fact, in terms of what Governor Romney's doing, strengthens his ties with these people, a reason to be with him, not just for a fundraiser, but to be with him in a day in a place that they call home.

OVERBY: The Jerusalem event comes after Romney holds a pair of fundraisers in London. They are tomorrow night, a reception priced at $2,500 per person and a dinner costing $25,000 and up, both aimed at donors in the banking industry.

There's a little awkwardness involved. Originally, Bob Diamond, CEO of Barclays Bank, was going to be one of the hosts, but since then, Barclays has paid $450 million in fines to settle charges that it rigged the LIBOR interest rate, a benchmark in daily commerce. The bank faces a criminal investigation in England and Diamond has resigned as CEO.

Still, another of Romney's fundraising hosts is Patrick Durkin, the top lobbyist in Barclays' U.S. operation. He's also a Romney campaign bundler. That is a solicitor of contributions. The Nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics says Durkin has previously raised more than a million dollars. Durkin and the Romney campaign both declined comment for this story.

Robert Weissman is president of Public Citizen, a liberal group that criticizes big money in politics.
