Ex-Aid Worker: Abuse Of Refugee Children On Nauru Was Mostly Ignored

Corrected on August 24, 2016

In this report, Viktoria Vibhakar recalls being told that a man who sexually assaulted a young boy at a detention center on Nauru would not lose his job, but would be moved to a different detention center. But Vibhakar went on to say, in a part of the interview that was not broadcast, that the man was eventually fired. Still, she added, "the fact that a Save the Children manager would ask me and my colleague, who was the case manager, to accept the idea that this person was just going to be transferred" was a sign that "there was something so wrong" at the detention center.

However, interest in American-grown tea is steadily growing, and there are many artisan tea growers and owners of smaller farms. A list of tea growers and farmers can be found here, including in Hawaii and Canada.

An earlier version of this story noted the start of the women's shot put competition in the Olympic Games as 1984. The women's competition actually began in 1948.

Addendum Aug. 15: Also, the U.S. men's basketball team is going for its third straight gold medal, not its fourth (Team USA won bronze in 2004), and New Zealand's Valerie Adams was going for her third straight gold in shot put; a previous version of this post was incorrect on both those points.

A Million-Mom Army And A Billionaire Take On The NRA

Corrected on June 21, 2016

Update June 23: This story has been edited to reflect the information in this correction.

This report previously referred to Shannon Watts as one in a group of "regular people" who began advocating for stricter gun control measures in recent years. After the December 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., she created the "One Million Moms for Gun Control" Facebook page. It later became "Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America." We should have noted that Watts has a background in corporate communications. From 1998 to mid-2012, she was a corporate communications executive or consultant at such companies as Monsanto and FleishmanHillard. Before that, Watts had what she says was a nonpolitical job as a public affairs officer in the Missouri state government.

Our report also stated that Watts had never "done anything political" before the shootings at Sandy Hook. We should have noted that Federal Election Commission records show she began contributing money to Democratic campaigns and political action committees earlier in 2012. According to those records, she has made about $10,000 in such contributions, and about one-third were made before the Sandy Hook shootings.

The original version of this story referred to a recommendation by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force that pregnant women and some young children be routinely screened for iron-deficiency anemia. However, that is not the most recent USPSTF finding.

London's Popular And Populist Mayor Makes The Case For Leaving The EU

Corrected on May 4, 2016

In the audio of this story, Boris Johnson is incorrectly referred to as the "lord mayor" of London, but he actually holds a different post. The lord mayor is the symbolic head of the much smaller (and ancient) heart of London, known as "The City," which now encompasses the financial and business district. Until Johnson steps down on May 5, he has the simple title of "mayor of London," a more political post responsible for the strategic governance of the entire British capital, usually referred to as "Greater London."

Letters Telling Women About Breast Density Are Often Too Darn Dense

Corrected on May 4, 2016

In a prior version of this story we said that when he visited the U.S. last year, Pope Francis "met briefly with Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who defied a court order to issue marriage licenses for gay couples." That was a mischaracterization. The Vatican has said Davis was one of "several dozen" people who came to the Vatican's embassy in Washington to greet the pope. According to the Vatican, the pope did not discuss with Davis the actions she had taken and was not signaling support for what she had done.

Study Finds No Clear Link Between Teen Pot Use And Psychosis

Corrected on February 1, 2016

On Jan. 20, we reported on a statement from the American Psychological Association that a research paper, "Chronic Adolescent Marijuana Use as a Risk Factor for Physical and Mental Health Problems in Young Adult Men," had a statistical error.

The APA now says that statement, which was titled "APA Corrects Article Regarding Teen Marijuana Use," should not have said there was an error in the paper. Jim Sliwa, a spokesman for the APA, told NPR: "There was no error. The original release was labeled a correction but it should have been a clarification."

According to the APA, another researcher had asked the APA for a supplemental analysis of the data, which the study researchers supplied. That supplemental analysis did find a slightly higher probability of meeting criteria for a psychotic diagnosis in frequent marijuana users, but it did not significantly change the conclusions of the study data. Earlier versions of this article, including the headline, referred to errors in the paper's statistical analysis. We have removed those references to make it clear that the paper was not in error.
