sophisticated. the cyber war replaced the cold war. the breaches are the third certainty in life. >> reporter: twitter suspended the accounts which leaked the sheet which included the names, home addresses, phone numbers and working locations of the officers. investigators are looking into whether or not a uniformed laundry company might have been the source of the hack. third party vendor vulnerability is what it's called. right. but a subcontractor who has too much access into the systems of the organization can bring down another organization. and it could be because of a mistake made by one employee at a subcontractor where they click on the wrong link. >> reporter: new jersey transit confirmed it was a third party vendor who was compromised. they're looking into the breach. >> i don't think that means very much. just the information is out there.

5:22 pm
5:23 pm
5:24 pm
steve: moviegoers may want to check out a theatre in union square. jennifer: a look at the first ever 4-d theatre. this is exciting. >> reporter: it has all the senses. you can smell stuff. your seat's rocking? >>
5:25 pm
remember when smell-a-vision was just a pipe dream? well, i don't have to be corny. it's actually happening. after receiving a positive response from audiences in japan and hollywood, 4-d has arrived in new york at one theatre only for now. that's the regal cinemas in union square. >> a night at the movies got more immersive. this is 4d x technology, designed to enhance the 3d movie experience. these chairs vibrate, pulsing back and forth, to reflect the action on screen. all right. this is my first 4d experience. we're going to watch the first 15 minutes of batman versus superman. here we go. >> reporter: air blasts from behind you and in front of you when you're watching an explosion. there's an option to turn on
5:26 pm
plus there are environmental effects like wind. that was awesome. i thought it was really fun. your chair moves back or forward so you're seeing it from the camera's perspective. i enjoyed the 15 minute preview. i'm concerned about the full film. is there going to be movement? is it going to be distracting the entire time? >> no. no. i think -- the cool thing about 4d x technology, there are spurts throughout the movie where there might be movement in an action scene. there's fog and lightning that will happen on the exterior of the auditorium. >> reporter: looking ahead to summer blockbuster season, what are movies you think this would be perfect for? >> upcoming films that have been announced in 4d x are jungle
5:27 pm
universal, and captain america civil war from disney as well. >> reporter: i definitely want to see jungle book in 4d. that should be awesome. there are smell effects. i didn't smell anything. the cost, 4d x comes with an $8 up charge on top of a regular ticket. it could put your total at around $30 a person. for families, that's going to be challenging. but -- jennifer: i heard it worked in l.a. because it put more people in the theatres when they did that. >> reporter: cinemas are doing anything they can. steve: going to the movies is a rarity. to make it an event makes sense. especially in new york, people aren't buying the massive soda and the massive popcorn the way they used to. they need to make more money on the tickets. you're getting a better experience. seems kind of fair. >> reporter: yes. one last thing, bring a jacket.
5:28 pm
effects, i was getting cold. so -- steve: always a good idea. it's too cold. all right. good deal. thank you, simone. jennifer: show them the money. some of soccer's biggest stars want a raise. steve: and they all happen to be women. how members of the u.s. women's soccer team are fighting to make as much as men. jennifer: rapping about getting high. it's been going on for a year. can anything be done to stop artists from promoting drug use? lisa evers tackles the issue in

5:33 pm
issues up to the foreand get enough people talking that there could be change. >> reporter: in a statement, the u.s. soccer federation wrote it had not seen the complaint but, quote, we're disappointed about the action. we've been a world leader in women's soccer and are proud of the commitment we've made to building the women's game in the united states over 30 years. i'm mac king, fox 5 news. steve: atlantic city will be broke by the end of the week. jennifer: governor christie won't let them declare bankruptcy. lidia curanaj has the plans of what to do next. >> reporter: governor chris christie is emphasizing again that he will not allow atlantic city to file for bankruptcy if it runs out of money. this comes a little more than a week before atlantic city faces a possible three-week government shutdown because it cannot make payroll. right now atlantic city is more than $400 million in debt. christie says this is happening because the city's leaders

5:35 pm
out of it because they plan to run for the democratic nomination for governor. the mayor has asserted it's cut $25 million from the budget. christie's response? that's like one guy with a bucket trying to bail out water off the titanic. jennifer: thank you. steve: brutal. thanks. jennifer: the hip-hop world has glamorized drug use for decades. steve: with our nation battling an addiction epidemic, it's time for artists to change their tune. lisa evers is talking about that on "street soldiers." >> reporter: more than 125 a day are dying from drug overdoses in this country. now some are wondering if popular music is promoting a dangerous climate where drug use is considered normal. i've got to say

5:37 pm
promoted. >> reporter: this song is part of a growing genre hip-hop known as trap music. the beats and hooks are as addictive as crack. but there are negative consequences on the street. >> we get a front row view of this every day. it's getting to a younger age. it's fashionable because they put some many creative names on it. like the molly, the drank. you name it, they got it. they market it to the youth. they're dying from it. >> reporter: it's not just hip-hop. the drug themes run through many genres of music. no one is advocating 17 -- censorship. we talk about it saturday night.

5:46 pm
jennifer: are autism rates stabilizing? the number of children being diagnosed with the condition has been holding steady over the last several years. steve: joining us, dr. doris day, clinical associate professor at nyu medical center. that's good news. are you buying that the rates are stabilizing? >> well, on the good news front, it's nice to hear things aren't getting worse, but what it means is difficult to understand. the cdc monitor autism rates. in the 11 counties across the country where they're measuring rates in eight-year-olds, they don't see a difference.
5:47 pm
but the problem is what are they capturing? who are they missing and who's getting help? when you look at the groups getting autism, minority communities are not being diagnosed properly, early enough or getting the services they need. and the rates are still alarming at one in 68. so the cdc isn't saying this should make us feel comfortable that autism is on the decline and we should forget about it. they're not seeing a change in the counties where they're measuring it. but that may be because they're diagnosing it earlier, more kids are getting in the system in some way, but the kids in the system aren't getting all the help they could be or should be getting. we need to have autism awareness. we need to understand better and look broader than the 11 counties across the country and see what's really going on. jennifer: the screening isn't reaching all demographics. >> exactly. steve: autism speaks says they think the numbers are underestimated. >> i think that's true. i agree with them. i think the cdc might agree, but they have to measure something somewhere.
5:48 pm
attention to it. it's always great to keep the awareness high and aim to have greater measurements across greater counties in the country. steve: with a grain of salt for sure. a new study supports short course antibiotic treatment for lyme disease, but not all experts think this is the best option. >> i'm one of those experts. steve: that does not think that. >> exactly. this is a study out of the netherlands that was published in the new england journal of medicine, which is good. that's on the surface a good thing. it's a well done trial, looking at close to 300 people. here's a little bit of the glitch around it. this will set people who had a diagnosis for over two years. this isn't someone who's just diagnosed and determining how long to treat. these are people who have had it for a period of time, are in the chronic phase. in that phase, you don't know if it's still active chronic lyme disease or they have the infection. when we argue these things, all
5:49 pm
the three arms of the study, one group got nothing. doctors observed them over 12 weeks. they found there was no groups. in all groups, some did better, some did the same and some didn't do any better or worse. so then all this tells me is we need to better understand more about lyme disease. is it active infection? blood? what other measures can we use? is three months long enough? they may need longer treatments to see improvement. three months is a period of time, but it may not be long enough. jennifer: it almost shows us what we don't know. >> we have to ask the right questions. we need to know if there's destruction, if there's active disease, what made the people get better, what didn't help the other group. and hopefully this will lead to better testing. the problem with lyme disease, it's clinical judgment on so many levels.
