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.

Tennessee Mosque Can Open; Imam Says America Is Better For That

Originally published on July 19, 2012 1:08 pm

Now that a federal judge has ruled that the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro in Rutherford County, Tenn., can open, the mosque's imam says muslims elsewhere should take notice.

"We set an example to people everywhere," Imam Ossama Bahloul said Wednesday, as our colleagues at Nashville Public Radio report. "We can look to the people in the middle or far east or in the middle of Africa saying to them 'America is the role model. Try to learn from us in America.' "

In The Tennessean, Bahloul is quoted as saying "the winner today is not an individual, the winner today is our nation and the fact that our Constitution prevailed."

As WPLN's Blake Farmer has reported for All Things Considered, "an ongoing court battle ... stalled the project, one of several Islamic centers around the country that, like the so-called ground zero mosque, have encountered resistance from local communities."

In Murfreesboro, Blake said, the dispute "started out as an attempt by mosque opponents to put the religion of Islam on trial." Local attorney Joe Brandon Jr. said he was fighting the possibility of Shariah law being imposed on the people of Rutherford County.

"Mosque leaders laugh at that idea," Blake reported last month, "and call the Shariah issues 'fabricated.' But for Brandon, it's a serious matter tied up with his own beliefs."

Now, says Nashville Public Radio, the mosque is hoping to open in time for the start of Ramadan at sundown today. But, "the new mosque still has to be inspected and get a certificate of occupancy from the county. Asked whether congregants could be in before Ramadan starts at sundown, a mosque official said 'we'll see.' "

Update at 1:10 p.m. ET. Two More Weeks Of Work Needed.

According to The Associated Press:

"Tennessee Muslims who won a court battle to occupy their new mosque will have to wait a little longer while construction is finished. Construction supervisor David Salimi said a codes inspector visited the site near Murfreesboro on Thursday morning but that it will take about two more weeks of work to be ready."
