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.

We're going to go right to Aurora, Colorado, in a moment, the scene of the shooting early Friday at a movie theater that left 12 dead and dozens more injured. Earlier today, a bomb squad worked to disarm up to 30 explosive devices found in the apartment of suspect James Holmes.

JIM YACONE: It was an extremely dangerous environment. If a neighbor or an assuming pedestrian would have walked in that door or, God forbid, a first responder, they would have sustained significant injuries and/or lost their life.

RAZ: That's FBI special agent Jim Yacone speaking in Aurora earlier today. NPR's Carrie Kahn is also there. And, Carrie, what do we know at this hour?

CARRIE KAHN, BYLINE: Well, we heard from the Aurora police chief at an afternoon briefing here at the headquarters. And I just want to tell you, Guy, it was the most expressive I've seen the chief since this tragedy occurred. And what he really wanted to send home - and he echoed what you heard from the special agent - was that the suspect really wanted to hurt someone when they walked in that - into his apartment. The way the explosive devices were set up, the way - when you open the door, it was set to hurt and kill the first person who walked in there.

And the chief said that first person was clearly going to be a police officer or a first responder. And he said it's clear that this guy wanted to kill a police officer. And he said everyone at this police department is taking that message personally. And so that was quite striking what the police chief had to say today.

RAZ: Carrie, you were outside the suspect's apartment today where investigators and authorities are working to defuse several explosive devices. What can you tell us about that effort?

KAHN: It's quite an extensive effort. They have the bomb squad from the county that is helping them. They also have experts from all over the country that have come to help them because they say they've never encountered such a sophisticated scene as what they're finding in this suspect's home - the booby trap, the trip wires, the number of explosive devices. And it was quite a dramatic scene there today.

We got a 15-minute warning, and the police cleared the main street that is nearest to the apartment. And officers, we heard them far away shout: Fire in the hole. Fire in the hole. And a few seconds later, you heard a huge boom in - from - coming from the apartment. Just a few pigeons cluttered away. We did not see any smoke. There was no fire. A police spokeswoman came out and said that the detonation was a success. That's exactly what they wanted to see.

And it was a robot that was sent into there to set off an explosive device to break up some of those trip wires and to neutralize some of those explosive device. It is quite a sophisticated scene that they're dealing with there at the house.

RAZ: What more do we know about the victims?

KAHN: Well, the coroner has released a list of names and ages of the victims. It's quite shocking to see that they're ranging age from a 6-year-old girl all the way to a 51-year-old man. It is the first time we're seeing a lot of these names officially. We have heard from some family members that have already come out and said that their loved ones were killed there in the theater. The coroner said that autopsies clearly show that all of these people died from gunshots. So this is the first time we're hearing about them. We're going to learn more about the victims and their personal stories.

The police here told us that they have talked to a lot of the victims that survived the attack and that are in the hospital. Just extensive gunshot wounds from this man who had hundreds of rounds of ammunition that were set off in that theater. We heard from trauma surgeons that said that they've - just the extent of damage that these guns did to these people, things that you see in war. So the victims have - that have survived have a long process of recovery and the people that are still mourning. It's going to be - take a long time.

There is a community vigil in commemoration of the victims, and that's going to happen here tomorrow at the police headquarters. And it's expected to be well-attended.

RAZ: That's NPR's Carrie Kahn in Aurora, Colorado. Carrie, thanks.

KAHN: Thank you. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
