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.


Sports: Big Weekend For Tennis

Jul 7, 2012

This is WEEKEND EDITION from NPR News. I'm Scott Simon. Time for sports.


SIMON: And it's a huge weekend on tennis' hallowed ground. Serena Williams has won her fifth Wimbledon title. She defeated Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland, 6-1, 5-7 and 6-2 in the final. And on the men's side, Andy Murray is the great Scot hope, as he tries to win his first Wimbledon title. We spoke with Howard Bryant of and ESPN the magazine from Wimbledon shortly after Serena Williams won.

HOWARD BRYANT: Leave it to me to rush off of the court and get down here. They are right in the middle of the championship trophy presentation. It was a pretty remarkable, remarkable day. It looked very early as though Serena Williams was going to finish this match in about a half an hour. She pretty much destroyed Agnieszka Radwanska in the first set 6-1. And then, all of a sudden, Rawanska played incredible defense, showed an amazing amount of heart, and proved why she is number three in the world.

And it was a terrific match. It went three sets and Serena finally closed it out with a 6-2 win in the third set.

SIMON: This is kind of a signal that Serena Williams is back after a couple of years of health problems. Kind of a signal, yes, winning Wimbledon is a signal.

BRYANT: But also, I think the thing to remember here, Scott, more than anything else, is that this is an amazing dynasty that you're watching with the Williams sisters. They are also later this afternoon, going for a doubles championship as well. I think you're looking at probably the most accomplished, most successful siblings in American sports. It is remarkable what these two women have done.

SIMON: On the men's side tomorrow, Roger Federer, who practically owns a condo at Centre Court in Wimbledon...


SIMON: going to be in eighth Wimbledon final. Andy Murray is going to be the first British gentleman to play for the title since Fred Perry defeated Gottfried von Cramm in 1936, and I sure wish we had more athletes with names like that these days. Is there a home-court advantage in tennis?

BRYANT: Yeah, it's huge. It's huge. Even for Roger Federer, even against Roger Federer, who was beloved pretty much everywhere he goes, this place has gone crazy for Andy Murray. He's got history on his back and he's trying to get rid of it. You've got an unbelievable groundswell of support here for him to win his first major. Great Britain hasn't had a champion here since 1936. They haven't had anyone play for the championship here since 1938, with Bunny Austin. As you know, Scott, Bunny Austin was the man who introduced shorts to the game.

And so, with all of this, Andy Murray has gotten an amazing amount of pressure against the 16-time grand slam champion, but I think he can win this match. I think he can win and I think it's going to be a terrific match tomorrow.

SIMON: Boy, I want to ask you about the NBA before we close out the week because, of course, there've been just a dizzying array of free agent moves over the past week...


SIMON: ...while you've been enjoying yourself at Centre Court there, Howard. So...

BRYANT: There's point guard galore. Everyone's changing teams.

SIMON: Well, I mean, for example, Ray Allen will be going from the Celtics to the Miami Heat. Now, this, this just seems unfair.

BRYANT: It seems unfair, except for a couple things. One, we all know that the NBA is - it's a multi-billion dollar business. And Ray Allen, he doesn't really play that well. And I think that the Miami Heat know that they need another player, and this is what free agency is all about, because one of the reasons why people love the game, and then this is also one of the reasons why people don't feel so close to it, is because every winter or every summer, you've got a revolving door of players, and it doesn't seem like loyalty mean a whole lot. However, money talks, and $8.9 million is going to make Ray Allen go play in South Beach.

SIMON: And what about Steve Nash going to the L.A. Lakers, 'cause this to me...

BRYANT: Nash going to the Lakers. And I respect that, actually. Steve Nash and his wife divorced, and Steve Nash wants to be next to his kids. And if he was going to go to the East Coast to go play for the Knicks, I like what he said: I would rather see my kids three or four times a month than three or four times a year. That's completely 100 percent worth it to me.

SIMON: Yeah.

BRYANT: And how are you going to argue with that logic?

SIMON: Is it enough to put the Lakers back in the game?

BRYANT: Well, the Lakers are always in the conversation. One, because they've got the second-best player in the game in Kobe Bryant. And they're also the Lakers. They can always attract players. Were they a point guard away from winning the championship? I don't think that they were. But now that they have Steve Nash, you've got two Hall of Famers on that team, absolutely. They're going to contend, they're back in business, like they always are.

SIMON: Howard Bryant of ESPN and, the magazine also. Thanks for being with us from Centre Court, Wimbledon, Howard.

BRYANT: My pleasure, Scott Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright National Public Radio.
