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.

Romney Camp Comments On Possible Israeli Action In Iran, Then Clarifies

Jul 29, 2012
Originally published on August 5, 2012 1:56 pm

If Israel felt it needed to strike Iran militarily to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons, Mitt Romney would "respect that decision," a top foreign policy adviser said today.

Dan Senor spoke with reporters ahead of the presidential candidate's speech in Israel, scheduled for later in the day. Senor was "outlining the aggressive posture" Romney would take in his speech toward Iran, The Associated Press reports. According to Al-Jazeera:

"Senor told reporters on Romney's plane that the candidate believes Iran developing a nuclear weapons capability is an existential threat to Israel and a threat to the U.S., as well."

Hours later, Romney ignored questions from reporters about the comments, CNN reports. Then the campaign issued a clarification:

"Gov. Romney believes we should employ any and all measures to dissuade the Iranian regime from its nuclear course, and it is his fervent hope that diplomatic and economic measures will do so. In the final analysis, of course, no option should be excluded. Gov. Romney recognizes Israel's right to defend itself, and that it is right for America to stand with it."

Upon welcoming Romney today before the clarification, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said sanctions and diplomacy "so far have not set back the Iranian program by one iota," the AP reports.

As NPR's Greg Myre has reported, tensions between Iran and Israel have been escalating in the last few years.

"Israel believes Iran is determined to acquire nuclear weapons capability, and has warned repeatedly that it's prepared to take military action if Iran's program is not halted. Iran, meanwhile, insists its nuclear program is for peaceful, civilian purposes."

The Obama administration has tried to avoid such a unilateral move by Israel, Al-Jazeera reports. Today, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz said President Obama's national security adviser has "shared with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the United States' contingency plans for a possible attack on Iran." According to Reuters:

"Haaretz said the secret briefing was the most significant effort by high-level U.S. officials who had visited Israel in the past month, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to try to dissuade Israel from launching its own military strike on Iran."

The briefing has not been verified by NPR.

The Obama administration is actively trying to shake charges by the Romney campaign that the president hasn't been harsh enough on Iran — or that he hasn't been supportive enough of Israel. As Frank James reported Friday:

"Romney's visit to Israel this weekend is meant to underscore the Republican's campaign message, aimed at Jewish and evangelical Christians voters, that he would be a more loyal ally to Israel than Obama has been."

Though Romney is eyeing Jewish voters during his time in Israel, a recent Gallup poll shows Jewish Americans "solidly" support Obama in the election.

Romney arrived in Israel Saturday night after a bumpy visit to Britain and before a trip to Poland on his foreign tour.
