Orphanage isn't always what it seems many of these children who are in orphanages actually have living parents these are kids many times for whether their parents have died or not have been traumatized. And so there's very valid questions about whether it makes sense to have a short term untrained, unskilled. Volunteer work with these children closely for a week or two and then disappear. Or whether they should have trained professionals dealing with these traumatized children. But of course, money's hard to come by for a lot of these organizations. And so they rely on volunteer staff rather than having donors fund paid positions by professionals. Let's hear from Sophie, oh Tian day. She works for heart.

Why Did Japan's Emperor Abdicate?

Why Did Japan's Emperor Abdicate?

"Now, our main story this morning, the abdication of Japan's Emperor Akihito Peter Landers is our Tokyo bureau chief so Peter who is Emperor Akihito tell me a little bit about him. And why did he decide to abdicate Emperor Akihito's eighty five years old? He was eleven and a half about when World War Two ended. So he did experience a little bit of the war and had to escape to the countryside. Because Tokyo was being bombed so severely and that really shaped his whole life. He inherited the throne from his father, emperor Hirohito in nineteen eighty nine and has been on this road for thirty years and a big part of his reign has been about remembering the war, and what it did to Japan. What it did to other countries in Asia? He's gone as far as the island of Palau in the Pacific to commemorate the war dead and remember some of the battles of the war. And at eighty five years old he was suffering from. Lining health. Although he still is in fairly good health for a man of his agent is able to walk around and attend ceremonies speak and so on so he's in relatively good health for a man of eighty five but several years ago after having been hospitalized for prostate matter. And so on maybe cut that breast that it was president but several years ago after some health troubles. He told the nation in a sort of indirect way that he felt it was his time to to abdicate and a law was passed allowing him to do so. And so on may I the throne will pass to his eldest son Crown Prince Naruhito about Nara told what's he like he is a very mild mannered fellow from all accounts plays the viola. He studied the history of river transport at Oxford University in the nineteen eighties. And. So and he has an has expressed an interest in in global affairs, and it was interesting to read the transcript of his press conference a year ago when he was asked about events in the news that have made an impression, and he cited a very specific figure for the number of refugees in the world and talked about global conflicts that were increasing the number of refugees, and he mentioned this year that he would like his wife ground prince's Moscow. The next empress to take a greater role in in helping him talk about some of these issues and address them. So I think he'll bring a more global perspective to the throne. There's been some criticism in Japan that the current rules don't allow for a woman to take the throne. It seems to come in contrast to prime minister Shinzo Abe's efforts to try and get more women in the workforce. Yes, it's an obvious contradiction with prime minister Abbas policy, he talks about a society. A women can shine. And yet here is the symbol of the nation. And only a man can shine in that role under the current law.

"This is all things considered. I'm Elsa Chang. And Audie Cornish. It's been a dramatic few days for the National Rifle Association in Indianapolis at its annual conference and RA president Oliver North announced suddenly that he was stepping aside. CEO Wayne LaPierre had to dodge his own ouster NPR's. Tim Mack covered the NRA convention in India in Indianapolis. He's back and joins us in the studio. Welcome back. Thank you. Why is all of this happening? And why now so there are numerous media reports and public allegations of financial mismanagement swirling around the organization and really all did come to a head this weekend. How did it play out at the convention? So you had all of our north. He's the president of the NRA perhaps best known for his role in the Iran contra scandal, he said he didn't have enough support on the board of directors to continue as president in announce dramatically in a letter that he was stepping aside.

Visit Gatien luckier managed to avoid being removed. But that didn't stop calls for change in the organization here, for example is Ron Carter. He's NRA member from Colorado Springs. He said he felt up here had been at the organization for too long. I don't know a single organization in the United States. It has a vice president that has served for that long and to not own up to those failures that organization has is a failure of leadership. And so he should absolutely step down or be removed. It got it. Even got the notice of the president of the United States who spoke to the group on Friday. But he warned today that they needed to that the NRA needed to get their act together amid these reports of financial misconduct. The other office that noticed New York's attorney general they launched a probe into the NRA. What's going on with that investigation? So this is just the latest probe into the National Rifle Association. There are a number of congressional committees that have begun investigations, but the one launched by the new York Attorney General can be uniquely threatening to the NRA. May. I mean, the NRA is charted in New York and the New York attorney general's office told MPR that it had already begun ish wing subpoenas. The New York AG has the ability to oversee nonprofits in the state and also unique remedies. If it finds wrongdoing if it finds wrongdoing punish nonprofit by removing their board of directors or forcing them to pay repay money wrongly-obtained, or even in extreme cases to force organizations to seize operations or dissolve Tim. You've actually spoke with members of the NRA's leadership. What are you hearing from them? Well, so that NRA's board is meeting today and one of the critical issues they'll need to deal with is how to handle these allegations of financial misconduct. Here's what one board member. Former congressman Allen west told me over the weekend. We've got to do what is right bar members. Because we are the voice of the members. And I think is very important that we put in the right type of organizational reforms that unnecessary. If we do find that there has been financial mouthpieces. Mess. And then we got a report it back to the members. That's it. So the NRA has five to six million members.

"We're not far from the new year than in Japan. It's one of the country's most important holidays. But this year it's taking on extra significance next year. The emperor will abdicate the throne heralding, a new age in Japan and Asia correspondent Jake's term it takes a look at what this big change means for the country and the world's since mid December. Japanese people have been meticulously cleaning their houses workplaces schools and neighborhoods as part of a tradition preparing for the arrival of God that brings good luck for the new year. Train stations packed with people hitting home to visit their families. This is the final new year of the hey, say era, each emperor's reign is given a nine the current Emperor Akihito's era is hey say he's been on the throne for thirty years. So this year is known as thirty but for the first time in Japan's modern history. Next year. The imprint will abdicate celebrating his eighty fifth birthday awake ago. The demands of public life became too much. So in April next year, he'll hand over his position to his son. Crown prince, NADA hito, Dr Hideo Kawanishi from Nagoya university is a Japanese historian. He says the emperor is resigning because he could no longer carry out all of his responsibilities that rather than reducing the amount of work. It was decided his duties should be passed on to someone else. So what will the high say era be remembered for tragically? It's been marked by disaster. The Kobe earthquake in one thousand nine hundred five and of course, the twenty eleven full Cosima earthquake and soon NAMI where more than fifteen thousand people died even this year Japan has been hit hard by a series of floods heat waves and earthquakes so much. So the official Kanji character of the year was by meaning disaster. Impr- Akihito made it a priority to visit disaster areas as much as possible, but he's age was beginning to make that difficult. Nagoya university's Dr Kawanishi says a new era will give Japan a chance to put those tragedies behind us becoming a new age and eliminating the problems that had before that's clear with this year's executions of the doomsday cult option requres founder and twelve other members involved in the nineteen ninety-five Seren guests tack on the Tokyo subway and last week the government executed another to death row inmates over my dad used to do. Dr Kawanishi says this was done to ensure this sense of burden wasn't passed onto the next generation.
