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.

Tech World Star Marissa Mayer To Head Google

And in Silicon Valley, the buzz is the latest hire by Yahoo. Marissa Mayer is the new CEO. Yahoo lured the 37-year-old away from Google, were she was one of that company's most prominent executives. She studied computer science at Stanford, was hired on as employee number 20 at Google, and as NPR's Steve Henn reports, she is something of a rock star in the tech world.

STEVE HENN, BYLINE: For years the rap on Yahoo has been: this company lacks focus.

SHAR VANBOSKIRK: Yahoo! has Yahoo Maps, Yahoo movies, Yahoo TV, Yahoo sports, Yahoo travel.

HENN: Shar VanBoskirk is an Internet analyst at Forrester Research. She say it hasn't helped that Marissa Mayer will be Yahoo's 6th CEO in just four years.

VANBOSKIRK: There's no rhyme or reason into what businesses they're going into. So my advice to Yahoo would be to streamline some of this stuff and focus on the few particular places where Yahoo can be the best in the world.

HENN: VanBoskirk was hoping for a CEO with a clearly articulated and focused vision for Yahoo's future. And she says she was disappointed by this choice. Marissa Mayer's background is in product development. She's done lots of different stuff. She helped create the look and feel of Google's now iconic search page. She helped launch Gmail. And back in 2009, Charlie Rose asked her why she though Yahoo was struggling.


MARISSA MAYER: Well, I definitely think that what drives technology companies is the people. Because in technology companies it's always about, what are you going to do next?


MAYER: So then it comes down to well, who is going to build that thing that you do next?

ROSE: Right. Right.

MAYER: So if you have the best people...

ROSE: So talent is the key.

MAYER: That is a huge benefit. And I do think that some of what happened with Yahoo was a little bit of that lost focus - but I also think that over the events of recent years they have lost a lot of their good people.

HENN: So Mayer's first mission might be to try and make Yahoo cool again - a place were great people actually want to come to work. And this is something Mayer may be uniquely well suited to do. She's well-known in Silicon Valley. She's mentored hundreds of former Google executives.

In recent years, Yahoo and Microsoft have been close allies in the search war against Google. Now, with Marissa Mayer in charge, the tech world will be watching to see if Yahoo could switch sides.
