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.

Why Would Romney Bury Treasure In Bermuda?

Jul 13, 2012
Originally published on July 13, 2012 11:04 am

New questions about Mitt Romney's overseas investments have dogged the GOP presidential contender all week. Many arose from a report in the latest issue of Vanity Fair. It describes how the day before Romney was sworn in as governor of Massachusetts, he put a corporation he'd set up in Bermuda in a blind trust held by his wife, Ann. Romney insists he did nothing wrong.

That investment account, called Sankaty, was established 15 years ago. Romney first revealed his ties to this offshore entity in the 2010 tax return he released in January. Earlier this week on Fox News Radio, he defended his actions.

"I have followed the law. I have paid my taxes as due," he said. "I have also disclosed through all of the requirements of the government every asset which I own, fairly and honestly."

The Records

So what was the advantage of setting up Sankaty High Yield Assets Investors Ltd.? The American lawyer who set up Romney's corporation in Bermuda declined to comment for this report. So did Romney's longtime associate, Brad Malt, who administers the trust where it's now held.

Bermuda may be tiny, but it's got loads of lore. Two centuries ago, the British hatched plans here for the War of 1812. These days, Bermuda attracts cruise ships as well as foreign money.

"If it's registered here, it's registered here for a reason ... maybe to the benefit of the shareholders of that company," policeman Andy Morgan says of Romney's investment.

For a $20 fee, you can check out the documents that established Romney's own corporation at Bermuda's Registrar of Companies. The folder is slim — just 10 pages.

Romney's name does not appear anywhere. The entity he created in October 1997 is described as a holding company initially authorized to have 12,000 shares worth $1 each. Within three years, seven other Sankaty investment funds were also established in Bermuda.

U.S. records show at least $25 million worth of stock — most of it for Domino's Pizza — was sold from Romney's holding company while he was governor of Massachusetts.

Government officials in Bermuda seem extremely reluctant to discuss Romney's investment.

"Bermuda doesn't want to get too drawn into — we don't want to get drawn in at all," says Nea Talbot, public affairs officer at the Department of Communication and Information.

Bermuda's Bad Rep

The law firm that has the Bermuda address for Romney's holding company doesn't want to get involved either. It's located in a gleaming, five-story building known as Thistle House in the heart of Hamilton, Bermuda's bustling capital.

The building appears to be home in name alone to Romney's Bermuda account. In the marble-floored lobby, corporate finance lawyer Steven Rees Davis is getting a coffee. He won't say which firm he works for because he says his opinions are his own, but he says he's annoyed that Romney's business in Bermuda is now making waves.

"It's the American politicians that make it out to their public that ... anybody who does business with Bermuda is like a dirty old man dealing with pirates," he says.

As Rees Davis notes, U.S. law actually lets Americans lower their tax bills by parking investments in Bermuda, which has no income tax.

"Why would you operate in a certain manner and pay a certain amount of tax when legally you could just change that and do something differently and pay less tax?" he says. "So why would you buy bottles of Goslings Rum duty-free when you leave the country when you could go buy it at Front Street and pay full duty for it? ... Well, because we get it duty-free. Everybody does it."

Experts say Romney appears to have set up a retirement account in Bermuda with hedge fund-type investments that would otherwise be taxed in the U.S.

"We don't have full knowledge of Gov. Romney's tax situation, so we can't say for sure," says James Hines, an international tax expert at the University of Michigan, "but yeah, it looks like ... you can call it tax avoidance. You can call it facilitating investments that otherwise wouldn't be ... profitable."

Anyone else who had enough money to buy a company, Hines says, could do it, too.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

This is MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm Renee Montagne.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

And I'm Steve Inskeep. Good morning. Let's look a little more closely at one of the questions about Mitt Romney's overseas investments. Some of those questions this week arose from a report in the latest issue of Vanity Fair. It describes how the day before Romney was sworn in as governor of Massachusetts a decade ago, he put a corporation he'd set up in Bermuda in a blind trust held by his wife, Ann. Romney insists he did nothing wrong. NPR's David Welna has been trying to find out what that investment was all about. Here's his report.

DAVID WELNA, BYLINE: Sankaty is a cape on Nantucket Island, known for its lighthouse. Six-hundred miles to the south. Sankaty is also the name of an offshore investment account Mitt Romney established in Bermuda 15 years ago. Romney first revealed his ties to this offshore entity in the 2010 tax return he released in January. Earlier this week, on Fox News Radio, he defended his actions.

MITT ROMNEY: I have followed the law. I have paid my taxes as due. I have also disclosed, through all of the requirements of the government, every asset which I own, fairly and honestly.

WELNA: So what was the advantage of setting up Sankaty High Yield Assets Investors Limited, hundreds of miles off the North Carolina coast? The American lawyer who set up Romney's corporation in Bermuda declined to comment for this report. So did Romney's longtime associate, Brad Malt, who administers the trust where it's now held. But there was another option.

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to beautiful Bermuda. Local time is 2:45.

WELNA: Bermuda may be tiny, but it's got loads of lore. Two centuries ago, the British hatched plans here for the War of 1812. These days, Bermuda attracts cruise ships as well as foreign money.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN: (Singing) Lean on me when you're not strong...

WELNA: At the Bermuda Bistro at the Beach, policeman Andy Morgan steps away from a sing-along to talk about Mitt Romney's investment.

ANDY MORGAN: If he's registered here, he's registered here for a reason; maybe to the benefit of the shareholders of that company.

WELNA: It turns out, for a $20 fee, you can check out the documents that established Romney's own corporation, at Bermuda's Registrar of Companies.

UNIDENTIFIED WORKER: And that is the file on the company.

WELNA: OK.

The folder I'm handed at the registrar is slim, just 10 pages. Romney's name does not appear anywhere on these pages. The entity he created in October 1997 is described as a holding company, initially authorized to have 12,000 shares worth a dollar each.

Within three years, seven other Sankaty investment funds were also established in Bermuda. U.S. records show at least $25 million worth of stock, most of it for Domino's Pizza, was sold from Romney's holding company while he was governor of Massachusetts. Here in Bermuda, government officials seem extremely reluctant to discuss Romney's investment. Nea Talbot is with the Department of Communication and Information.

NEA TALBOT: Bermuda doesn't want to get too drawn into - we don't want to get drawn in it at all.

WELNA: Nor does the law firm that's the Bermuda address for Romney's holding company. It's located in a gleaming, five-story building known as Thistle House, in the heart of Hamilton, Bermuda's bustling capital.

In the marble-floored lobby of this building that appears to be home, in name only, to Romney's Bermuda account, corporate finance lawyer Steven Rees Davis is getting a coffee. He won't say which firm he works for, but he's annoyed that Romney's business in Bermuda is now making waves.

STEVEN REES DAVIS: It's the American politicians that make it out to their public that, you know, anybody who does business with Bermuda is like a dirty old man dealing with pirates.

REES DAVIS: Why would you operate in a certain manner, and pay a certain amount of tax; when legally, you could just change that, do something differently, and pay less tax? So why would you buy bottles of Goslings Rum duty-free when you leave the country, when you could go buy it at Front Street and pay full duty for it? Why do we do that? Well, because we get it duty-free. Everybody does it.

WELNA: Experts say Romney appears to have set up a retirement account in Bermuda, with hedge fund-type investments that would otherwise be taxed in the U.S. James Hines is an international tax expert at the University of Michigan.
