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.


Wiggin' Out: Bradley Wiggins Drinks To His Gold Medal, And The Mods Applaud

Fresh off becoming Britain's most-decorated Olympian, cyclist Bradley Wiggins is back in the news, as he updated his Twitter followers Wednesday night with details of how his celebration was going.

"Well what a day, blind drunk at the minute and overwhelmed with all the messages," Wiggins tweeted to his more than 400,000 followers. "Thank You everyone it's been emotional X."

That message followed an even more to-the-point, "Getting wasted at at StPauls," which was accompanied by Instagram photos showing the time-trial gold medalist hoisting a cocktail and posing for the camera with the famed cathedral dome lit up in the night behind him.

As the AP reports, it's not the first time Wiggins has had a liquid celebration — and among Olympians in London, he's far from alone:

"After appearing at his second Olympics in 2004, Wiggins was downing drinks for months after the Athens cauldron was extinguished. Now he says the drinking is under control."

"'I lead a pretty normal life,' he said between sips of a vodka and tonic on Wednesday night. 'I'm not a celebrity. I will never be a celebrity.'"

If Wiggins isn't careful, he won't have that status for long. After all, he became Britain's first-ever winner of the Tour de France last month. And he followed it up by capturing his record seventh Olympic medal — a combo that's reportedly never before been achieved in the same year.

Wiggins has certainly captured the imagination of both his admirers and the media, some of whom visibly struggle not to call him by his unofficial nickname of Wiggo. Even before Wednesday's escapades, his Twitter account was a hit, with his plain-spoken and wry sense of humor.

For instance, here's his first tweet from the London Games: "Just arrived at the Olympics, got all me kit, still think Stella was a bit Lucy in the Sky when she knocked this one up."

That would be designer Stella McCartney, daughter of Paul... who sang about hallucinogenically enhanced scenery in "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds."

Another of Wiggins' tweets could have been the title of a painting seen in a cafe in any New Wave film of the 1960s: "Boy picking his nose surrounded by lions."

That one accompanied a photo that depicted his son, Ben, laying on a couch engaged in said activity — surrounded by the stuffed lions that are given out on the podium of the Tour de France.

With his red hair, long sideburns and slender frame, Wiggins stands out among elite cyclists. He gravitates toward British icons like musician Paul Weller — also known as the Modfather — and Paul Smith, whose clean and classic designs clothed a generation of mods — and their descendants.

And as the New Music Express excitedly reported in July, Wiggins is a big fan of mod music. In addition to Weller's band The Jam, he listed The Who and The Smiths as favorites. He also gave NME a playlist of songs.

"A sporting hero, and someone you'd trust with the pub jukebox?" wrote NME's Ailbhe Malone. "Bradley Wiggins, we salute you."

His association with Britain's mods led the BBC to do its own feature piece on Wiggins, complete with Quadrophenic scooters (Wiggins has several). The article's headline posed the question, "Bradley Wiggins: What is a mod?"

As with many questions, it seems to contain its own answer.
