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.

Donald Trump wrapped up his public tryout of potential vice presidential candidates in Indiana Tuesday night with Gov. Mike Pence giving the final audition.

Wells Fargo Agrees To $175 Million Settlement Over Lending Discrimination

Jul 12, 2012

Wells Fargo Bank agreed to pay at least $175 million Thursday to resolve allegations it discriminated against black and Latino home buyers, in what the Justice Department called the second largest settlement over fair lending violations.

The bank allegedly charged minority borrowers higher rates and fees and sometimes steered them into subprime loans when they would have qualified for regular loans, Justice Department officials said. At least 34,000 people may have been victimized by the practices in 36 states and the District of Columbia.

"This is a case about real people, African American and Latino, who suffered real harm as a result of Wells Fargo's discriminatory lending practices," said Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez, who leads the civil rights division at the Justice Department.

Authorities say they reviewed 2.7 million loans that originated between 2004 and 2009, the height of the housing boom. A separate review of loans originated from the bank's own retail business could add about 4,000 more victims to the settlement.

Perez, of the civil rights division, offered some examples of how about 30,000 minorities were disadvantaged by higher fees. A black wholesale mortgage customer in the Chicago area, he said, paid on average $2,937 more than a white applicant with similar qualifications. And in Miami, a black borrower seeking a $300,000 loan paid an extra $3,657 in what Perez called a "racial surtax."

Wells Fargo said the allegations mostly stem from mortgages sold by independent mortgage brokers. The bank said in a statement that it is "settling this matter solely for the purpose of avoiding contested litigation with the DOJ."

Today's deal also covers pending lawsuits filed by the state of Illinois and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission. Wells Fargo said it would enter into a separate agreement with the city of Baltimore, under which the city will withdraw its lawsuit and the bank will provide funds for community improvement and foreclosure related initiatives.

The agreement with Wells Fargo marks the second largest fair lending settlement in history, the Justice Department said, after a deal last December with Countrywide. Bank of America, which owns Countrywide agreed to pay $335 million.

As we've reported, a November 2011 report from Center for Responsible Lending found that during the housing bubble "borrowers of color were 'twice as likely to receive subprime loans' than their white counterparts and now that the housing bubble has burst, borrowers of color 'are more than twice as likely to lose their home as white households.'"

"The department's action makes clear that we will hold financial institutions accountable, including some of the nation's largest, for lending discrimination," said deputy attorney general Jim Cole.
