5:26 pm
it got me through the toughest moments of my life. >> reporter: with many latino artists dominating the pop charts today, it's hard to imagine a time when they had no presence. >> it was really hard to come up with a new sound. every time you have to change the last time or don't think they'll promote something. we didn't have radio stations, tv. more so the -- the biggest network would never do something because they were worried about ratings. >> reporter: the sound, an irresistible hybrid. cuban. heard. it was being performed by a cuban artist but in english. >> they would tell us no. oh, really? no? let's see. we can't go this way. go under. go over. go around. we're our biggest cheerleaders.

5:34 pm
>> reporter: the nevada race proves to be much tighter than expected. what should have been an easy win for clinton has turned out to be a tough fight. >> some of the details we saw coming out of the end of the polls have been really frustrating the clinton campaign. in particular the numbers about authenticity and trustworthiness. people want a president that's trustworthy and honest went 90% to sanders. that's got to hurt hillary clinton. >> reporter: the democratic race in nevada could be a tight one. political analysts say if turnout is low, it favors hillary clinton. if it's high, it will favor bernie sanders. as for the republicans in south carolina, the real race to look for is who takes second place. that fight right now, according to polls, is between ted cruz and marco rubio. a little piece of trivia for you, south carolina has a near perfect record of picking the eventual republican nominee.

5:42 pm
>> what can moviegoers expect when they come to the movies? >> it is really -- it's really a movie for the entire family. but it has a lot -- if you're a kid, you won't get it. you'll laugh at the physical humor. if you're an adult, there's great innuendos in there. it's hilarious. you're laughing for two hours. >> reporter: there's a strong social message, also. >> there is a lot of reality in this movie. there are love scenes and scenes where people have to learn to respect one another, no matter their sexuality, religion or skin color. you'll see the difference between the rich and the poor and learn that the poor can survive and live happy without a lot of money. it is out in three theatres. i'm jessica formoso, fox 5 news. dari: a table at a restaurant
5:43 pm
steve: baruch shemtov shows us how to get in good with the
5:44 pm
5:45 pm
dari: and the technology used dari: a community is coming together after a donation jar filled with money for a sick teenager was stolen. surveillance video shows a woman
5:46 pm
there's the video. you can see her slip the large jar into her coat and just walk out casually. that money was supposed to be given to 16-year-old kevin blanco who has hodgkin's lymphoma. he stopped by the bakery today and told fox 5 he's not mad the money was taken. >> everything in life happens for a reason and is done for a reason. maybe that woman needed it for her child or for her family and i hope she used it for that, it went to a good cause and she didn't put it to waste. dari: what a special person. special energy. the bakery says that the woman has since been arrested and the jar was found down the block. of course the money was gone. steve: in fox 5 health news, a break through with medical technology. a 3-d printer made this ear. researchers were able to make a jawbone and successfully transplanted them into lab rats and mice.
5:47 pm
medical contributor dr. devi. so good to see you. this is really exciting. >> i'm very excited about it. for a few different reasons. the fact that they're able to make the organs and tissue for people who need organ transplants, who are waiting on a list, it's not ready yet, but it's a sign that maybe they could get artificial organs so they don't have to wait for an organ for somebody else. even more exciting is the way they're doing this. the 3-d printer, this is used in all different types of industry. i usually think of it like the sticky notes you have in different shapes or kids books that come in different shapes. it's that idea, that you're layering different things and creating this structure. but for organs, you're trying to create life. something that's going to go in the body and be alive, not a pacemaker or artificial hip, but something that will have blood flowing through it. they're creating a scaffold and putting cells in it and creating
5:48 pm
blood will be able to travel through. when it gets into the body, it will become a part of that living person's body. steve: it's like a coral reef in your body. >> that's exactly it. that's the best example. a coral reef. they're doing it in animals. it hasn't been done in humans, but to be able to have jawbone and other bones and ears growing in -- steve: it can't be that far off given how far they've come recently. amazing. dari: okay. experts are saying that behavior therapy should be done before medication is given to children with adhd. >> i think most of us probably agree with this, right, that it makes sense. if you -- kids with adhd, what the problem is, one of the problems is they're getting overstimulated. they find it difficult to concentrate or pay attention. with the therapy, that can help anybody. the controversy has been for some people, they get diagnosed when they're further along.
5:49 pm
social activities. the medication may get them on track faster so they can participate in the therapies. with the new research, it doesn't go against anybody we thought of. i don't know if it changes the focus because it depends when the child is diagnosed and how much access they have to behavioral therapy. steve: there's a backlash to burying our kids under this weight of pills. it makes sense. let's try to change the behavior first. and whatever else we need, we can talk medication. >> i think when we think about other conditions, diabetes, something different, if you find it in the early stages, maybe somebody has gained weight and they're getting abnormal blood sugars, we try to do the natural thing, diet and exercise or push people towards those behavioral and life-style changes. if you find someone further along, you don't want to waste a lot of time where they could be
5:50 pm
