[music]
5:32 pm
type of person who didn't like surprises. library officials say she planned much of her own memorial service right down to the smallest of details, such as the white peonies, her favorite flowers. hearing the incredible stories, she was truly a woman, small in stature, yet made of steel. dari: boy, was she. we could learn a lot from her. thank you. donald trump has another former rival in his camp. dr. ben carson, yes, endorsed him for president, joining new jersey governor chris christie. carson praised the republican frontrunner as a voice of the people during a gathering at trump's private club in palm beach, florida. a political expert believes this could be an important endorsement. >> they show that the establishment in the republican party is basically coming around to the reality that donald trump is going to be the nominee and they would rather get on the trump bus. dari: trump says he hasn't promised carson a role in his
5:33 pm
says he'll play a big role in the campaign. christina: the fbi has interviewed the tech specialist who set up hillary clinton's personal e-mail server. a source telling fox news that he is a devastating witness. they say he was granted immunity, told the feds who had access to the former secretary of state's e-mail system and when the electronic devices were used. clinton has said she's happy he investigation. dari: thousands of duke university students lined up for hours to take part in a bernie sanders rally today. north carolina is holding primaries of tuesday. sanders touched on free healthcare for all and attacking wall street greed. he faces an uphill battle in the tar heel state, trailing hillary clinton by 20 points in the polls. christina: dropping out of college allowed a young man to mold himself into one of the greatest artists of his generation.
5:34 pm
history inspired him to become a sculptor in tonight's modern master. [music] >> art has the ability to transform and elevate your spirit, your insides, to see what can be. i'm saban howard. i'm a classical figurative sculptor. a figure tough sculptor is one who makes sculpture that is based upon the the human form. [music] i grew up in new york in the '60s. i also grew up in northern italy, which is a mecca of visual beauty. i have memories of when i was
5:35 pm
i would stand in the piazza under the columns and phenomenal-looking architecture. it stayed in me and resonated. i didn't get into art until i was 19. i came from a very intellectual family. both my parents are ph.d.'s. they expected me to go to a place like harvard. that was not going to go down. so i ended up at university of massachusetts, and after, you know, basically not showing up for class for a year, i dropped out, which horrified my parents. i went into this job on monday. by thursday i was like, oh, my god, what have i done? this is not for me. i called my dad. i said i want to go to art school. his response was how long is that going to last? i'm returning to a different way of looking at art, which is more traditional.
5:36 pm
it's not just something that is in the art world. it's a figure that represents us. so what i'm doing is i'm subdividing the body into, like, cubes. i start with the clay. i start with a general framework framework. once i finish the sculpture, my mold maker comes to the studio and we make mold on the clay. i take the mold and we go to the foundry. doing something in bronze is a way to give it a sense of weight and importance. because it does outlive the artist, but it shows his vision, and his vision will live on past him. i get this e-mail from joe. it says i urge you to join my team and become a partner with me so we can create this world war i memorial. i'm like this is cool.
5:37 pm
in my life for sculpture. we won 8 to 1. world war i is a war that needs to be remembered because it changed the course of history. i'm working on an 81-foot long wall, and it's 11 feet high, and i have to put up 30 figures. just imagine all the clay that has to go up and how much designing and drawing and how challenging that is both on a physical and mental level. i had to come up with a way of explaining work that is uplifting. that's why i made figures that are relational. there's a sense of heroism in how they take care of each other. it's not the glorification of war. it's the glorification of the human spirit. in my mind, the artist's role is to do something that's spiritual, sacred.
5:38 pm
direction that society can go in. dari: getting young women to products. christina: the potential health benefits to giving up your [music] dari: wait until you see this. exercise. the search for an animal lover to take him for a walk in central park. but first, here's tonight's new york minute. >> head over to grand central to catch the end of japan week through saturday night. you'll get a taste of japanese food and culture from the conveyor belt sushi to the cherry blossom art. go to japan to get a schedule of events and enter to win a trip.
5:39 pm
windmill designs as part of a district-wide windmill challenge. the goal, to get fifth graders to research and create different styles of windmills that are able to lift objects off the ground. >> if we don't get them young and expose them to doing the work that engineers, mathematicians and scientists, we have no hope for the future. the students doing the work now is very important to look at themselves in the future. we call it failing forward. a student shouldn't be afraid to accept failure. with failure comes being able to solve problems. dari: and that's your new york minute. i do everything on the internet. but it's kind of slow. my friends said i should get fios because it's the fastest... i just downloaded 600 photos in 60 seconds. that's seriously better. (man) we're out of 2%. i wonder what else could be better around here?

dari: henry mexia will appeal his lifetime ban from baseball after a third positive test for drugs. at a press conference in queens today, his lawyer accused major league baseball of using, quote, these are the lawyer's words, dirty cop tactics. he insists he was not using any banned substance at the time of the testing. christina: the big east tournament is full swing at madison square garden. the league held the 3rd annual big east annual round table. it brings together professionals to discuss key topics related to basketball. hosted by val akerman, duke castiglione played the role of moderator.
5:43 pm
continues at the garden on fox sports 1. dari: he's a tortoise who's not [music] christina: is that real? the dream job for animal lovers who don't mind taking it a
5:44 pm
5:45 pm
5:46 pm
christina: in your fox 5 health news, teens could be at risk from some cosmetics. a new study finds a short break from soaps, body lotions and perfumed products could drastically lower the amount of chemicals in their bodies. dari: dr. doris day is here, clinical associate professor at nyu medical center. when we read stuff like this, it's very frightening. you're a little reserved about this one. >> these studies are really tough. you have to be a scientist to read these. there's such a sensational aspect to it. you think my teenager, is she at risk? am i having problems with her using personal care products? we're not just talking about makeup. we're talking about sunscreen and other things that teenagers need to protect against cancer. so now there's basically a conclusion that some of these
5:47 pm
pair -- parabens and other things. those are based on animal studies. this is an fda approved drug that's available in over the counter sunscreens. the fda deemed it so safe, you don't need a prescription to use it. to make the claim that these are endocrine disruptors is not based on anything found in humans. these have been used over a long period of time. every year we hear the stories coming up again. christina: it is alarming. it drives our purchasing. paraben-free, preservative-free. >> reporter: they took 100 latina girls and took away the ingredients and gave them ones that didn't have this for three days. they measured the amount of the ingredients in urine. the amount dropped. i don't know what that means. there's less if they don't use it but it's only in the urine.
5:48 pm
even if it's in tissue, doesn't mean it's an endocrine disruptor. these are never been proven in humans in products used for a long time. to avoid it or to tell a teenager not to wear makeup or use sunscreen doesn't make sense. i would wait for more data and studies that make the connection that proves these ingredients truly are dangerous. look at them as individual ingredients, not as a group and category and lumping them together. understand more data needs to be done. people are doing research all the time. we want answers. nobody wants to use anything that's harmful on their skin and not to give it to their children. there's so much more to worry about in terms of toxicity and things that are not harmful. this isn't where i would put my greatest fear yet. dari: all right. christina: i'm encouraged it passes out of the body that quickly. >> a great point. dari: we always talk about the fact that how we're always tired
5:49 pm
now sunday, our clocks are going ahead, even though it's great it will be light out later, but, you know, how do you prepare for losing an hour of sleep? >> when you have a physiologic stress, it causes problem. we find people have major problems like increases in heart attack and stroke when the clocks change for a few weeks after because that time shift can be a big stress on the body. it does help to have something stable. if you go to bed at the same time every night and wake up at the same time every morning -- christina: who does that? >> you can aim for it. try to get close to it. if you have children, make it a ritual. just make 8:00, 8:00. up. i had that growing up. i still try to stay true to it when i can. i do feel better when i do that. the other thing is as the clocks change, try to exposures to as much daylight as possible.
5:50 pm
the next thing is don't eat or drink alcohol within two hours of bedtime. it can disrupt your sleep. exercising is amazing, great for getting better sleep and rest. it's great for your body and your circulation but not within two hours of bedtime. small changes can make a big difference. i think we change the clocks too soon. we wake up and it's dark. if we did it three weeks later, it would be better. nobody asked me. they did it without me. dari: they don't ask any of us. we're happy about the weather. christina: lots more sunshine. nick: absolutely. the clocks go ahead sunday at 2:00 a.m. if you don't do at 2:00 a.m., it doesn't count. just threw that out there. no alcohol two hours before bedtime. that's hard. let's talk about what we have as far as temperatures. nice day. wasn't record-breaking like the last two. it's been mild. some of the highs you're seeing were just after midnight.
