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 Flunks Obama On Economy; President Mocks GOP 'Tax Cut Fairy Dust'

Originally published on August 2, 2012 7:32 pm

In his first campaign speech since returning from his trip abroad, Republican Mitt Romney on Thursday told an audience in the swing state of Colorado that President Obama has failed on the economy. And he wielded a scorecard to make his point.

"His policies have not worked," Romney said in Golden, Colo., outside Denver. "They have not gotten America back to work again. My policies will work."

Obama spent much of the day in battleground Florida before a planned evening trip to another swing state, Virginia.

For the second day in a row, Obama assaulted Romney's plan for cutting taxes if he were to become president, citing an analysis by the Tax Policy Center that says the Romney plan would help the wealthiest Americans but cost those in the middle class, an analysis that Romney's campaign has called biased.

"Look Orlando, we know better," Obama told an audence. "They have tried to sell us this trickle down tax cut fairy dust before. And guess what? It didn't work then. It will not work now."

The battle over economic principles resumed a give-and-take from before Romney's weeklong trip to England, Israel and Poland. And it came a day before the Labor Department releases its monthly jobs report, sure to amp up the focus.

In Colorado, Romney audience members received a copy of what he called the "presidential accountability scorecard," rating the two candidates on six areas including jobs, home prices and family income.

"When the president was here as a candidate accepting the nomination four years ago, he laid out the report card in which he hoped to be judged," Romney said, referring to Obama's 2008 Democratic nomination acceptance speech in Denver.

During that speech, Obama discussed what he considered to be the differences in the way Republicans and Democrats measured success. Obama said at the time: "We measure the strength of our economy not by the number of billionaires we have or the profits of the Fortune 500, but by whether someone with a good idea can take a risk and start a new business."

Romney attacked Obama's record, alluding to comments the president made earlier this month about how small businesses are built (and which the Obama campaign says have been taken out of context):

"I hope he understands that actually the people that have a good idea and start a business are the ones who actually build the business," Romney said. "We're at a 30-year low in the number of business start-ups that have occurred, a 30-year low, perhaps because he thinks government is the one that helps build businesses as opposed to people."
