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.


Williams Sisters Advance To Gold Medal Game In London

Aug 4, 2012

It's been a big day for Serena Williams. First, she started the day by winning her first individual Olympic gold medal. Then she earned a chance for another gold in the women's doubles match, playing with her sister, Venus. The pair defeated the Russian team of Nadia Petrova and Maria Kirilenko, 7-5, 6-4.

The Americans will next face the Czech team of Hlavackova and Kradecka in the Olympic final, Sunday at 7 a.m. ET.

On Saturday, it was Venus, who earlier sat in the stands to cheer on her little sister, who seemed to be playing the best tennis in the first set. She was canny in rushing the net, where she used her long reach to put away points. And when the ball threatened to go over her head, she stretched out to deliver overhead shots for winners.

Venus' early consistency presented a daunting task for Petrova and Kirilenko, who, whenever they managed to get a shot past her, were rewarded by crushing groundstrokes from Serena.

Early in the second set, Venus threaded a shot through the 10 feet that separated her opponents, both of whom merely turned to watch the ball fly past between them. Moments later, she put so much touch on a ball after sprinting to the net that it seemed to take two bounces before either Russian player could even start to run toward it.

But the Russians fought to hold their serve, and answered with firepower and tactics of their own. They never quit on points, turning what looked like Williams winners into hard-fought gains. They sometimes switched to an "I" formation, to take away the center of the court — and perhaps unsettle the Williams sisters.

Kirilenko and Petrova largely abandoned that tactic, instead changing the angles of their shots and adjusting their game to take away the Williams sisters' strengths. For much of the match, both Russians stood at the baseline while receiving serve, ceding at least temporary control of the net to the Williamses.

In the decisive second set, the Williams sisters blasted powerful groundstrokes from the baseline that the Russians couldn't handle. That gave the Americans several match points, which they failed to convert. With Kirilenko serving, the Russians withstood that challenge with resolve — until the sixth match point, when Kirilenko sent a crossing backhand into the net.

As a team, Venus and Serena have won 13 Grand Slam doubles titles.
