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.

Originally published on August 11, 2012 6:26 pm

On-air challenge: You are given two five-letter words. Put the same pair of letters in front of each of them to complete two familiar seven-letter words.

Answer: Tina Fey, irony

Winner: Eric Running of Seattle

Next week's challenge, from listener Annie Haggenmiller of Chimacum, Wa.: Take the name of a well-known U.S. city with four syllables. The first and last syllables together name a musical instrument, and the two interior syllables name a religious official. What city is it?

LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:

This is WEEKEND EDITION from NPR News. I'm Linda Wertheimer. And it is time for the puzzle.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

WERTHEIMER: Joining me now is puzzle-master Will Shortz. Good morning, Will.

WILL SHORTZ, BYLINE: Good morning, Linda.

WERTHEIMER: So, Will, could you remind us of last week's puzzle challenge.

SHORTZ: Yes. It came from listener Richard Whittington of Media, Pennsylvania. I said think of the last name of a famous person in entertainment. The first two letters of this name are a symbol for one of the elements on the periodic table. I said substitute the name of this element for the two letters, and you'll describe the chief element of this person's work. What is it?

WERTHEIMER: The answer is Tina Fey.

SHORTZ: Yes. And the first two letters of Fey are F-E, which is a symbol for iron. And irony is a chief element of her work.

WERTHEIMER: More than 700 listeners sent in the correct answer, and our winner this week is Eric Running of Seattle, Washington. Congratulations, Eric.

ERIC RUNNING: Thank you.

WERTHEIMER: So, what do you do in Seattle?

RUNNING: Well, I'm a retired Foreign Service officer, and I moved back her and I'm sort of a stay-at-home dad and do some volunteer work.

WERTHEIMER: Did you have a favorite place that you served when you were on the Foreign Service?

RUNNING: Well, we really enjoyed Bangkok. We did a couple of assignments there.

WERTHEIMER: Bangkok, good food?

RUNNING: Good food.

(LAUGHTER)

WERTHEIMER: Will, have you been watching the Olympics?

SHORTZ: Yes, I have been quite a bit. You know, there's, you know, basketball, water polo, cycling, table tennis, of course. I had this idea this week there was something I wanted to watch. And I thought, OK, I'll bring some work down and I'll watch the TV out of the corner of my eye. But that doesn't work out so well. You know, you just end up watching TV.

WERTHEIMER: You just get totally sucked in.

SHORTZ: That's it.

WERTHEIMER: Well, now, Will, meet Eric; Eric, meet Will.

SHORTZ: Morning, Eric.

RUNNING: Morning, Will.

SHORTZ: I'm going to give you two five-letter words. Put the same pair of letters in front of each of them to completely two familiar seven-letter words. And the letters that go in the front will never be a standard prefix, like R-E. For example, if I said quire Q-U-I-R-E and tress T-R-E-S-S, you would say A-C, as in acquire and actress.

WERTHEIMER: Oh.

SHORTZ: OK? It's always two letters.

WERTHEIMER: Oh no. OK.

SHORTZ: Two letters that go in front. Here's number one: eight E-I-G-H-T and antic A-N-T-I-C.

RUNNING: Freight and frantic.

SHORTZ: Freight and frantic, good. Ounce O-U-N-C-E and avail A-V-A-I-L.

RUNNING: Trounce and travail.

SHORTZ: Trounce and travail, nice job.

WERTHEIMER: Oh, you're so much better at this than I am. I hate that.

SHORTZ: Linda, you're good too. Try this one: hoots H-O-O-T-S and price P-R-I-C-E.

RUNNING: Cahoots and caprice.

SHORTZ: Cahoots and caprice, good.

WERTHEIMER: Very good.

SHORTZ: Latin L-A-T-I-N and state S-T-A-T-E.

RUNNING: Gelatin and gestate.

SHORTZ: Gelatin and gestate, nice. Heist H-E-I-S-T and tempt T-E-M-P-T.

RUNNING: Atheist and attempt.

WERTHEIMER: Atheist.

SHORTZ: Atheist and attempt. OK. Try this: event E-V-E-N-T and orate O-R-A-T-E. OK. I'll give you a hint: it's two consonants that go in front.

RUNNING: Two consonants?

SHORTZ: Yeah. Sounds like I stumped you both. I'll just tell you the answer: is prevent and prorate.

RUNNING: Oh, OK.

SHORTZ: How about stain S-T-A-I-N and alone A-L-O-N-E.

RUNNING: Abstain and abalone.

SHORTZ: That's it. Nice job. How about this one: verge V-E-R-G-E and sable S-A-B-L-E.

WERTHEIMER: I am clueless, clueless.

SHORTZ: OK. For that first word, think of a synonym for split.

WERTHEIMER: Diverge.

RUNNING: Oh, disable.

SHORTZ: Disable, good job.

WERTHEIMER: Well, I only needed 14 hints.

SHORTZ: Here's your last one. Amble A-M-B-L-E and other O-T-H-E-R. And I'll give you a hint: it's two consonants.

RUNNING: Bramble and brother.

SHORTZ: Bramble and brother, nice job.

WERTHEIMER: Great job, Eric.

RUNNING: Thank you.

WERTHEIMER: For playing the puzzle today, you get a WEEKEND EDITION lapel pin as well as puzzle books and games. You can read all about it at npr.org/Puzzle. Eric, what public radio station do you listen to?

RUNNING: Well, we're members of both KPLU and KUOW here in Seattle.

WERTHEIMER: So, an embarrassment of riches in Seattle - two really fine stations. That's great. Eric Running of Seattle, Washington, thank you very much for playing the puzzle this week.

RUNNING: Thank you.

WERTHEIMER: Now, Will, what do you have to puzzle us with next week?

SHORTZ: Yes, this week's challenge comes from listener Annie Haggenmiller of Chimacum, Washington. Take the name of a well-known U.S. city in four syllables. The first and last syllables together name a musical instrument, and the two interior syllables name a religious official. What city is it?

So again, a well-known U.S. city, four syllables. The first and last syllables together name a musical instrument, and the two inside syllables name a religious official. What city is it?

WERTHEIMER: OK. When you have the answer, go to our website, npr.org/puzzle and click on the Submit Your Answer link - just one entry per person, please. The deadline for entries is Thursday at 3 P.M. Eastern. Please include a phone number where we can reach you at about that time. And if you are the winner we'll give you a call, and you will get to play on the air with the puzzle editor of The New York Times and WEEKEND EDITION's puzzle-master, Will Shortz.

Thank you very much, Will.

SHORTZ: Thanks, Linda.
