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.

Sources tell NPR the presumptive GOP presidential nominee is close to making a decision, which he's widely expected to announce by Friday.

Republican Convention Speakers Include Old And New Faces

Former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney may be skipping the Republican National Convention later this month, where Mitt Romney is set to officially become his party's 2012 presidential nominee.

But Condoleezza Rice, the former Bush secretary of state and national security adviser, and the first African-American woman to hold both roles, is scheduled to speak from the main podium, according to the Republican National Committee, which announced Monday the names of several speakers lined up for the event.

Besides Rice, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who was his party's 2008 presidential nominee, will also have a major speaking role, the RNC said. McCain endorsed Romney in January at a critical moment after a surprisingly strong showing in the Iowa caucuses by former Sen. Rick Santorum.

Along with Rice, the RNC speakers' list includes two other women who will give the Republicans a chance to showcase the diversity in their governors' ranks — Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina and Gov. Susana Martinez of New Mexico.

Like Rice, both Haley and Martinez represent firsts, with Haley being the first female and Indian-American to be governor of the Palmetto State, and Martinez the first Hispanic female to be her state's chief executive.

That Rice is being given a prominent speaking role is noteworthy for a few reasons, not least of which is that she was at the center of one of the most controversial decisions of the Bush administration, the invasion of Iraq, one of the most unpopular wars in U.S. history.

Her presence gives Democrats an opening to make a contrast between Bush's foreign policy and national security record and Obama's, and to link Romney to Bush.

Also on the list is conservative TV and radio host Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas. It was Huckabee, a former presidential candidate himself, who sparked the recent Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day that drew tens of thousands of gay-marriage opponents to the chain's restaurants. The show of solidarity was designed to counter a backlash sparked by anti-gay-marriage remarks from the company's president.

Two other governors scheduled to speak at the convention are Florida's Rick Scott, whose state is hosting the event in Tampa, and Ohio's John Kasich.

Ohio is viewed as all-important by both Romney and President Obama in the race for the White House. No Republican has ever won the White House without winning the Buckeye State.

Several of the politicians scheduled to speak at the Republican convention — indeed, all three of the women — have been considered as vice presidential possibilities for Romney by political watchers. For various reasons, however, they haven't been at the top of observers' lists.

The Republicans still haven't announced who the convention's keynote speaker will be. There has been some speculation that it could be New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, one of the party's leading stars.

Last week, the Democrats announced that the keynote speaker at their convention, to be held in Charlotte in September, would be San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, considered a rising star in the Democratic Party.

His choice was seen as a way for Obama to underscore the importance of the Latino vote to his re-election and to his party's future generally, as well as his efforts to reach out to those voters.

The Republicans' choice of Martinez, New Mexico's governor, gives the GOP a chance to try to appeal to some of those Latino voters as well.
