Annalynne McCord: 'I am a survivor of sexual assault'
Actress Annalynne McCord is as nervous as she's ever been. The star of shows like '90210' and 'Nip Tuck,' will deliver a speech at the United Nations on Friday to help draw attention to sexual violence against women. It's a cause that holds a profound meaning to her. "I am speaking to kick off the (International Women's Day March for Gender Equality and Womens Rights.) I am a survivor of sexual assault," said McCord. For the past six years, the Georgia native has been working with anti-human trafficking organizations. Her involvement lead her to speak out out about her assault. "The biggest thing I want people to know is that I am OK. I was raped one night, but I am not tainted and I'm not damaged. I like having sex with my consensual partner when it's beautiful and it's a choice. I really want to have a conversation about this issue," said McCord. Getting the message out about all sexual violence committed against women is crucial in order to end it, adds McCord. "I really want to talk about how we need to enlist men... to use their voices to help us," said McCord. Some of the statistics are staggering: approximately 250,000 victims of sexual slavery are within the United States. The average age of getting into prostitution in the United States is 12 years old. Part of the awareness campaign is through the use of social media. "Hashtag Yes All Real Men," said McCord.

Tony Robbins Shares Money-Making Tips from 50 Smartest People
Self-help guru and life coach Tony Robbins has worked with former President Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey and Hugh Jackman. For 21 years, he counseled one of the top financial traders in the world, Paul Tudor Jones. After the financial crisis of 2008, Robbins says he got angry that nothing was being done to help people who had lost their life savings. He knew he could be part of the solution following years of working with the brightest minds. "If I could interview the 50 smartest people on earth, figure out their strategy, then I can help anyone turn their money around," said Robbins. So he wrote the book, Money Master The Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom. "What you don't know will hurt you. One out of three Americans have $1,000 in retirement. They have no idea what it costs to manage their 401K. Ninety-six percent of mutual funds don't match the market. According to Forbes, the average fee is 3.17 percent. You are giving away 20 percent of your life savings," said Robbins. The solution: eliminate most mutual funds from your 401K. Another big tip: create and "all weather fund" by putting aside a small amount of money that continually grows. Learn more form Robbins in his new book. He'll be signing copies on Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014, at Bookends in Ridgewood, New Jersey at 7 p.m.

Taraji P. Henson on Courtney Love, Naomi Campbell
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - The hit FOX series 'Empire' stars several Hollywood heavy-hitters including Taraji P. Henson and features guest stars of equally large talent. So far, rocker Courtney Love and supermodel Naomi Campbell have made appearances on the show about a family's music empire and the family members trying to take control. Love, wife of the late Kurt Cobain, and Campbell have seen their share of tabloid headlines for alleged outrageous behavior, but it's all about getting the job done on the set of 'Empire.' "I absolutely love working with Courtney," said Henson. "She is a pro. She is so good. She is so available. She is such a team player in a scene. We gave each other great stuff to work off of. We trusted each other. I love her and I can't wait to play with her again." Henson also has nothing but love for Campbell, who can't seem to live down an incident years ago when she threw a cell phone at an assistant. "At the table read-- I like to ad-lib a lot-- I said 'You want to throw your cell phone at me? Lee (Daniels) said 'keep it.' But we didn't. The great thing about her is she is amazing. She is a beautiful person. I don't even know how that whole cell phone thing happened. She is amazing on the set. We love her," said Henson. You can catch 'Empire' on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on FOX.

The Big Idea: Hydroponic and Vertical Farming
Inside a 300,000-square-foot greenhouse in Riverhead, Long Island, a farming revolution is flourishing. It's not what's being grown, but how it's being grown, and when. When most traditional farmers on the East Coast wrap up their growing seasons in late fall, Carl Gabrielsen is just getting started. "There's a tremendous market out here, we have, how many? 15 million people within a 40, 50 mile radius and we can't feed them, we can't feed ourselves anymore," Gabrielsen said of the winter season. But that's changing, he says. Gabrielsen's family has grown flowers since the 1950s, but they used to take the winter off. Then a few years ago Gabrielsen discovered a method that would enable him to produce viable crops in the offseason, regardless of the weather: hydroponic farming. Hydroponic farming is the practice of growing plants indoors and without soil. It originated more than 60 years ago recently became more popular for growing food. "Hydroponic farming has been on the upswing in general, particularly because of severe weather patterns," said Dickson Despommier, an emeritus professor of public health at Columbia University and the author of "The Vertical Farm: Feeding the World in the 21st Century." Growing hydroponically allows farmers to cheat the seasons, but it's also brought fresh produce to places where there's no room to grow the traditional way. Despommier helped create the concept of vertical farming, which is just what it sounds like, growing food from the bottom up. It's happening around the world in cities like Newark where AeroFarms is opening one of the world's largest vertical farms in the coming months. "That's not going to be the only one, in another five years from now you're going to see lots of those springing up all over the place," Despommier said. "There is nothing you can't grow hydroponically." Out in Riverhead Gabrielsen Farms is producing up to 6000 heads of lettuce a week, as well as greens like bok choy and herbs like parsley and basil. As with any kind of farming, it starts with a seed but the only planting happens in small trays. Special LED lights simulate the sun's glow and warmth. Once the plants begin to grow they are moved to troughs where flowing water wets the roots every four to five hours, according to Gabrielsen. Contrary to what you might think, he says the process actually saves water. "Let's take a head of lettuce we grow outside in the field. You would need about 50 gallons of water to produce that head of lettuce," he said. "Here with hydroponics, we use between one and two gallons per head of lettuce." The water is recycled in three big tanks and Gabrielsen says there's no waste. There are also no pesticides. Gabrielsen uses insects to control the population of damaging aphids. "Years ago if you saw, let's say, an aphid, you would get out the pesticides and just blast away, ya know? Now we release parasitic wasps, they'll hatch and just seek out the aphids." When it's fully grown, the lettuce is packed into clamshell packages with the roots still attached. Gabrielsen says the lettuce can remain fresh for up to two weeks if the roots are left on and kept in water. He also boasts the lettuce is more nutritious when the roots are left on until just before the leaves are eaten. As Gabrielsen's lettuce winds up in supermarkets and at restaurants on Long Island, and vertical farming begins to serve more produce-starved urban communities, hydroponic farming is feeding global demand for healthy locally grown food, year round.

Judge Judy to women: 'create a whole you'
She's never been shy to tell others what she thinks, "even as a child," and Judge Judith Scheindlen isn't holding back on what she says is keeping women back. "I think that women for too long allowed other people define what their happiness and reasonable role should be," said the host of the Judge Judy show. Scheindlen took a page from her popular website, WhatWouldJudySay.com, to create her new book, 'What Would Judy Say? Be The Hero Of Your Own Story.' "In this book I want to have an honest conversation about what it really takes to get what you deserve out of life: how to define your worth and stick to it; how to find the courage to take risks–and how to build your backup plan; how to ignore the chattering classes and create your own destiny," said Scheindlen. The book, which is free, is downloadable on electronic devices at WhatWouldJudySay.com. "If you have a forty year old unmarried daughter you go ugh, but if you have a 40 year old son who is dating around, you go, he's having a good time," said Scheindlen. Her message to women is create a whole you before you let someone else define what you are. Start by establishing a way to earn a living and develop interests in music, art, dance, theater, etc. "Women are so desperate to stay in a relationship to be defined," said Scheindlen. The wife, mother and grandmother is currently in the 19th season of her hit TV courtroom show on FOX.

Shane Dawson is a social media star who made his mark with a series of funny YouTube videos. "I was a fat kid. I was like 400 lbs. I lost a couple hundred... I ate less and exercised. I started making videos and tracking my progress and it lead to sketch comedy. Now, I'm taking way too many selfies and hating all of them," said Dawson. The 26-year-old is also an author, too. He's written the book, "I Hate My Selfies." "The introduction was the hardest. How do you start a book? How do you say this is my life story without sounding so pretentious," said Dawson. As for how to look better in selfies, Dawson says there are tricks. "I try to make myself look worse because it sets the bar low. So when you meet me in person you're like wow. But there are tricks: putting your tongue against the roof of your mouth or putting the camera way up here," said Dawson.

Lap of Luxury: Fine Floral Arrangements
In this week's Lap of Luxury we visit L'Olivier Floral Atelier, where floral artist Olivier Giugni creates the extraordinary floral arrangements you see in some of the finest hotels and restaurants in New York City. We begin in Olivier's studio in Harlem, an entire building dedicated to weekly arrangements for hotels and venues. His staff starts delivering early in the morning by sneaking flowers into these establishments while their guests are still asleep. Among his biggest clients are Daniel Boulud, The Plaza Hotel, The Carlyle, The Pierre, and the Loews Regency Hotel. For nearly 30 years, Olivier has been designing opulent arrangements for luxury clients, but his passion for flowers started in his youth, in the south of France, where he says he was born with a green thumb. Olivier got his first big break in Paris where he started working for fashion designer Pierre Cardin at Les Fleurs de Maxim's. There, Olivier had his first brush with fame, doing parties for big Hollywood stars including Barbara Streisand and Liza Minnelli. He even designed the flowers for Frank Sinatra's birthday party. In the 1980s, Olivier moved to Manhattan where he continued to work for Cardin, and became friends with Chef Daniel Boulud. While working with Boulud, Olivier discovered an empty old bookstore on 76th Street and Madison, and L'Olivier Floral Atelier was born. Today you'll find Olivier's work in a number of elegant locales, where he sends staff to attend to the blooms every day, plucking wilting flowers and refreshing the water daily. He gives the same personal attention to flowers for all occasions from parties to weddings, private residences, even bouquets available on his website: www.lolivier.com. Floral arrangements start at $125. Intimate weddings being at $5,000. A more lavish affair can run $150,000. While he's best known for his flowers, Olivier also works wonders with leaves. He claims to be the first person to do leaf-wrapped vases three decades ago. The trend is ubiquitous today. He says he pioneered the move to hide dirty water in vases, and believes leaves are an important part of any arrangement. They help to create lines in a bouquet, and can be a bouquet unto themselves. If there is one thing Olivier is most passionate about, it's color. His mantra: color is life! At the holidays Olivier says it's all about sparkle, whether you're decorating a high-end hotel or putting a tree in a private residence. Twelve-foot trees start at $1,500 and can go up to $30,000 depending on your vision and theme. He's done "Under the Sea" trees using fish, all silver trees, black and silver. Once he even decorated a tree using clients' handbags and shoes. But whether he's working with holiday decorations or smaller bouquets Olivier says there's one essential ingredient in all of his arrangements: the love you put in when you're creating them. L'Olivier Floral Atelier is located at 19 East 76th street in Manhattan. L'Olivier Pop-Up Shop will be opening in Brookfield Place on Vesey Street from November 21, 2015, through May 2016. --ALISON MORRIS

Sheila E. Reveals Rape, Love of Her Life in New Memoir
Legendary performer Sheila E. experienced the highs and lows of life as an entertainer at a very young age. The daughter of famed percussionist Pete Ecevedo spent her time in recording studios surrounded by the biggest names in Latin jazz and salsa. But the Oakland, California native also became a sexual assault victim. "I was raped," said Sheila E. The abuse was at the hands of cousins and a babysitter. Sheila E. was only five years old. "It's part of my testimony to share with people; a lot of people -especially women- feel they are the only ones, but they're not." That story and revelations about her engagement to Prince and her first love, Carlos Santana, are told by the star in her new memoir, 'The Beat of My Own Drum.' "There were times when it was a little bit challenging. As a celebrity, you try to keep your life as private as possible" said Sheila E. about the writing process. The drummer, percussionist and singer who played her first show with her father when she was five, continues to perform and couldn't be happier than when she's on stage. She's even released a new album titled 'Icon.' "I'm living glamorous and glorious," said Sheila E. Fans can watch her perform live in New York City at the Gramercy Theater on Nov. 25 at 8 p.m.

Tony Robbins: Simple Investing Tips
Tony Robbins is one of the most easily recognizable life coaches in the world. He's made a living getting people to get out their seats and get their lives moving in the right direction by helping them tackle their obstacles and address their failures. In his latest book, "Money: Master the Game," Robbins asked some of the biggest names in business --including Warren Buffett, Carl Icahn and Steve Forbes -- for the keys to financial freedom. Robbins dropped by Fox 5 to share some of those secrets, which are simpler than you might think. For starters, Robbins says, you have to know what things really cost you. Robbins says 401(k) fees are eating away at most people's hard-earned money. He gives a frightening example: If you have $100,000 and you're 35 years old and you put that money in the market at 8 percent, by age 65, if you paid 1 percent in fees, you'd have $761,000. If you paid 3 percent in fees, that same investment would total $432,000. You've lost hundreds of thousands of dollars just in fees. Robbins has partnered with America's Best 401K. The website www.showmethefees.com helps people figure out what they're paying and what their options are. Another secret: Robbins says people don't realize that you don't get rich by making a lot of money. The way to get money? Robbins says put money to work as YOUR slave and stop being the slave to money. The way to do that is COMPOUNDING. Another Robbins example: give up a night out a week and instead stay home with pizza and a beer. Take that $50 and invest it. If you invested $50 a week for the entire year, earning 10 percent over 30 years, would turn into half a million dollars. Don't have any money invested yet? Robbins has two words of advice: get started. --ALISON MORRIS

Inside Men's Fashion House Kiton, Home of the $9,000 Suit
In this week's Lap of Luxury, we visit Italian fashion brand Kiton. Never heard of it? When it comes to men's bespoke shirts and suits, Kiton is the best of the best plus one. In fact, that's the brand's motto. As the president of Kiton USA, Antonio Paone says in Italian: Il meglio del meglio piu uno. Kiton was founded in the 1950s in Naples, Italy, as a fabric merchant. In the 1960s, Antonio's uncle, Ciro Paone, transformed the brand into a tailoring business. Five generations later, Kiton has grown enormously. A $40 million flagship store is located on 54th Street in New York City. More than 700 tailors work for the brand. But quality fabrics and fine suiting are still the focus. Paone says you'll often see 500 tailors working by hand in the Kiton factory, but you'll never see a machine. Every Kiton suit is cut by hand, one by one, as suits were cut 50 years ago. Paone says the quality has not changed. The Robb Report agrees. David Arnold, senior vice president at Robb Report, says that nobody surpasses Kiton in terms of menswear. In the June Best of the Best issue of the magazine, Kiton was awarded best suit for its handmade quality and attention to detail. But that quality and attention will cost you. A basic bespoke suit at Kiton starts at $9,000. It's 100 percent wool, 200 grams, 14 micron. A 100 percent cashmere blue summer weight suit will also run about $9,000. The top level Vicuna fabric, 200 grams, will run $60,000. Paone says that material is truly the best of the best plus one. If it sounds outrageously expensive, he suggests coming in, taking a jacket and trying it on. Paone says when customers walk around in Kiton suits, and take their time to really feel the fabrics, they understand the incredible quality. Let's not forget about the custom shirts. They're also entirely made by hand. Customers can choose every detail: the color, buttons, threads, style and monogram. They start at $500 and run up to $1,200 for Sea Island cotton. The fabrics are all the best cottons, all Italian. In fact the only thing at Kiton that isn't Italian is the name. Paone says Kiton comes from "chitone," which is a Greek name for the fine linen tunics the Ancient Greek people used to wear to formal parties. --ALISON MORRIS

Roses That Last 1 Year
A luxury florist based in New York City is promising real roses that last over a year, and arrive as perfect as when they were first plucked. They even smell fantastic, and you don't have to do a thing to keep them alive. Sound too good to be true? Sunny Chadha and Seema Bansal say eternity roses are a reality with their brand, Venus et Fleur. It all started when the two were first dating. Sunny and Seema were living in different cities, and it was Valentine's Day. He did a bit of research and found a luxury florist, to send Seema roses. But what they sent was nothing like what he thought he was sending. That disappointment led the couple to come up with Venus et Fleur. They wanted high-end flowers that would leave a lasting impression, so they created eternity roses that live 51 weeks longer than most others. Seema says you just need to take care of them properly. And there isn't much to their care. Don't water, pluck or clean them. She advises keeping them away from sunlight, heat and humidity. So how do they do it? Seema says the roses are real roses, grown in Ecuador, which are cut at their most peak and perfect state. They're then treated in a proprietary formula--she'll only say that formula is wax-based. After they're treated they can be dyed any color. Venus et Fleur offers 18 options and can custom dye their roses to match any Pantone shade. Seema came up with the design, tying fashion and luxury into their florals. She wanted it to be a Parisian product, so she went with a hatbox style of packaging and a French name. And the roses are a hit. Seema and Sunny launched in New York in August of 2015, fully funding Venus et Fleur themselves. Just six months later, on Valentine's Day, they completely sold out after the Kardashians posted two of their boxes. Their entire company was shocked when Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian posted photos of Venus et Fleur arrangements within 15 minutes of each other. Their remaining flowers were all gone that day. Since then, their customer base has grown to 7,000 plus, including singer Jesse James Decker and actress Shay Mitchell. They've even made a custom 'Major Key' for DJ Khaled. Venus et Fleur can make custom arrangements for any occasion: a heart or a number for an anniversary, or someone's initial. They even wrote Fox 5 in an arrangement of blue and red roses. Custom Grandiose arrangements like DJ Khaled's Major Key start at $1,499. Do a single eternity rose for $39 or a box of 9 mini eternity roses for $79. Small boxes start at $299 for 12-16 full-sized eternity roses, in their signature hat box. That box serves two purposes. Seema loves how the roses are the first thing you see, because they pop right out of the box. Sunny points out how they don't shift in transit, leaving, as they hoped, a lasting impression. Venus et Fleur also does boxes of traditional roses that last about a week starting at $159. www.venusetfleur.com --ALISON MORRIS

The Tech Behind Great Adventure's roller coasters
Riding roller coasters: for a pastime we all know how to enjoy and that scares the heck out of us, we certainly put a lot of trust in the hands of a process we know little about. We trust in guys like Michael Reitz, an engineer at Six Flags. He is somewhat of an "imagineer," part of an outstanding team that comes up with an idea for a ride, like Kingda Ka at Great Adventure in New Jersey, and then makes it happen. Only, it is a little more complicated than that. Reitz showed us the process by taking Fox 5 into restricted area after restricted area and into a room outsiders simply don't get to see: the brain of Kingda Ka, built to be the tallest ride in the world and the fastest. To get you up to the top, the train carrying you needs to go from 0 to 128 mph in 3.5 seconds. Hydraulic pressure builds up, nitrogen pressure is added from the missile tubes, and once released thousands of horsepower pour on to drive the big wheel, or wench, which pulls the double cables up top that pulls a metal slat, called a car, and you launch off on the train and lose your mind. Not only has the launch of the ride evolved, but so has the way it stops. Would it comfort you to know that none of these rides have brake pads? Not even the tallest drop in the world, called Zumanjaro, where you're going 90 mph by the end of the 415 foot drop. But Michael is not worried because he has you sitting on magnets. The final ride we learned about is El Toro, which is built to look like the old wooden roller coaster. It is a visual trick. El Toro's technology is state of the art. Sitting in the back, I though we were just going for a nice ride, a little quality time for a relaxed chat with Michael when suddenly i forgot whatever it was I was thinking as we went down the drop and I told Michael that I don't like him at all. I was kidding, of course, because we really like Michael. Legs wobbly, I looked to regain my pride by accepting Michael's challenge to take the Zumanjaro drop. Michael dedicates his life to pushing the limits of imagination, physics and engineering to deliver to you, a thrilling yet safe human experience. --ARTHUR CHI'EN

Teenage Jazz Sensation Joey Alexander
Fox 5 is celebrating 100 years of jazz. Part of that celebration includes featuring some young musical prodigies. But don't call Joey Alexander a prodigy. The 14-year-old is already a veteran jazz performer. The two-time Grammy nominee recently performed at The Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College. Born in Bali, Indonesia, Joey got his first keyboard when he was 6. He learned from his dad and by listening and playing along to legends, including Duke Ellington, John Coltrane and the unique improvisational style of Thelonius Monk. Wynton Marsalis, the acclaimed trumpeter and artistic director at the Jazz at Lincoln Center, discovered Alexander from a YouTube video. Joey is still mastering this musical language, learning to be a bandleader, and trying to find time to still be a kid. He is one of the brightest young stars of some of America's oldest music. --DAN BOWENS

Damon Wayans: I Was Born With A Cleft Foot
Actor and funny man Damon Wayans says his older brother, Dwayne Wayans, would hang him from the back of his shirt to a door hook. "That's how he babysat me. He hated me. He would beat me up," said Wayans. There might have been jealousy on Dwayne Wayans' part because of all the attention Damon Wayans would get at home. "I was born with a cleft foot. So I got a lot of love and affection from my mother. She put more time and energy into me because, you know, guilt," said Wayans. The Manhattan native now calls California home, but his mother, father and other relatives still call New York home. Wayans is in town Dec. 19-20. He'll be taking the stage at Caroline's Comedy Club.

Where Can New Graduates Afford to Live in New York?
This is the time of year new college graduates find places to live on entry-level salaries. So what are the best options for new renters in the high-priced New York market? StreetEasy crunched the numbers to find the best options while also offering new graduates some advice. For starters, make sure you have some extracurricular funds so you can actually experience and enjoy New York City, StreetEasy spokeswoman Lauren Riefflin says. Don't spend your entire paycheck on rent. That's not so easy when you're just starting out. Lauren's advice? Don't spend more than 30 percent of your income on rent. How much money is that? StreetEasy looked at over 120 occupations in New York State. The median entry-level salary is about $48,000, according to Labor Department data. Sticking to the 30-percent rule, new grads making the median starting salary have about $1,200 a month to spend on rent. So where can they afford to live? The most inventory for around $1,200 is in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Bushwick, and Crown Heights in Brooklyn; Astoria in Queens; and Washington Heights in Manhattan, according to StreetEasy. We interviewed Lauren in Fulton Park in Bed-Stuy, the top neighborhood on the list. It has beautiful brownstones, easy subway access to Manhattan, and more than 1,300 apartments for rent on StreetEasy right now. The median asking rent in Bed-Stuy in April was about $2,300 for all bedroom sizes. Lauren says a studio or one-bedroom apartment would typically be cheaper and a two- or three-bedroom apartment would be potentially more expensive. But plenty of options fit within the $1,200 budget, especially if you take on a roommate or two. Bushwick is second on StreetEasy's list with some funky industrial loft-style rentals. But even if the apartment buildings look cool (as many in Bushwick do) remember your budget. And again, consider living with a few roommates. Besides having extracurricular funds to enjoy the city, a lot of graduates will have to start paying back their student loans and need to account for those payments, too. But recent graduates shouldn't feel limited by their budgets. They have plenty of housing options. If you like the idea of renting part of a brownstone, you'll find that in Bedford-Stuyvesant and Crown Heights. If you want a more traditional apartment, look at Astoria. If modern and industrial is your thing, check out Bushwick. And if you have to be on Manhattan Island, then Washington Heights is your option. What is StreetEasy's advice for anyone looking for an affordable place to rent or even buy? Follow the train lines. Often if you go just one or two stops beyond the hottest neighborhoods, you'll find more space and lower price tags, while still having a reasonable commute and easy access to the city. --ALISON MORRIS More info here: http://streeteasy.com/blog/college-grads-face-next-big-hurdle-cost-of-nyc-housing/
