People across the internet are already going after YouTube’s “Rewind 2019,” calling the production “lazy” and “boring” while inundating the video with hundreds of thousands of dislikes and comments.

YouTube released its year-in-review video Thursday as part of its annual tradition of highlighting the year’s biggest trends and creators on the platform. After the uproar that last year’s “Rewind 2018” video caused, YouTube presented this year’s video as a compilation of the platform’s biggest moments in an effort to highlight the content that users have watched and liked the most.

However, immediate reactions across the internet hint that this year’s video is not getting the positive feedback YouTube hoped for. The “Rewind 2019” video itself has already received nearly 250,000 dislikes – compared to 150,000 likes – and thousands of comments from angry YouTube users.

People have been quick to voice their displeasure and say they feel let down by the video, which doesn’t appear to have the same amount of production work and effort behind it as Rewind videos of past years:


“I expected nothing and I’m still let down somehow,” one Twitter user wrote. “The response to the terrible video last year was the equivalent to the Magic Conch [from SpongeBob SquarePants] telling them to do nothing.”


Other Twitter users were disappointed that “Rewind 2019” seemed to be a simple top 10-type video showcasing a compilation of content that already exists on YouTube.


However, not everyone was upset about YouTube’s 2019 video. YouTubers like LaurDIY and Casey Neistat highlighted the video’s inclusion of international and breakout creators, while others said that the video actually appeared to be more diverse than Rewind videos in the past.


Considering the video only came out Thursday, it remains to be seen how widespread the criticism of this year’s Rewind video compares with reactions to Rewind 2018. Last year’s video was widely hated on for leaving out some of YouTube’s most controversial creators, and it quickly became the most-disliked video of all time on YouTube.

The flagship information terminal of ultra-wealthy media mogul Michael Bloomberg was promoting his 2020 bid for the White House on Thursday.

The Financial Times first reported that a shortcut on the Bloomberg Terminal is leading users towards his campaign website by simply entering the function “MIKE <GO>.”

Business Insider also typed in “MIKE” on the terminal and was redirected to the website, where a campaign ad chronicling the billionaire’s life story automatically started playing. The ad – which traces his journey as “a middle-class kid” who later rose to become a billionaire businessman and politician – is one minute and 49 seconds.

A similar shortcut was not extended to any of Bloomberg’s rivals for the presidency. Instead, typing in “JOE,” “PETE,” or “BERNIE” only redirects people towards a biographical page with the latest news stories for former vice president Joe Biden, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

The function has since been changed to simply redirect to Bloomberg’s biography page. The ordeal comes amid mounting scrutiny around the company and how it will deal with its owner’s candidacy.

A Bloomberg spokesperson did not immediately return Business Insider’s request for comment. But they told the Financial Times that the “MIKE” shortcut has been in place since 1997 and traditionally sent users to personal projects of Bloomberg before it converted to the campaign website.

A campaign spokesperson later told the Financial Times it was “clearly an oversight.”

The Terminal has over 325,000 subscriptions worldwide and many within the finance industry use it to access information on stocks, securities, and market movements.

Bloomberg entered the Democratic primary on Nov. 24, jolting the race with the prospect of a self-funded candidate. He’s attempted to present himself as a pragmatic option within a primary split on ideology and a party that’s wrestling to determine whether a moderate or progressive candidate is best equipped to take on President Trump in the the 2020 election.

He has since poured over $57 million on television ads, outspending almost every other Democratic candidate in two weeks.

Dan Buettner, a continent-trekking cyclist and storyteller, figured out that the world consisted of at least five “Blue Zones,” in the early 2000s. That’s when he made the term, which was first coined by Belgian professor Michel Poulain, a household phrase in a best-selling cover story for National Geographic.

In this handful of hidden corners scattered across the globe, he discovered that people were sailing past the 100-year mark with surprising frequency, and often avoiding dementia.

People residing in these Blue Zones are outliving us because they have figured out what others have not, according to Buettner. They consistently eat a healthful diet, and they also move around about every 20 minutes or so during each day.

But he says it took him years after that initial discovery to figure out exactly why the rest of us are getting the simple diet and exercise formula so wrong.

“People start thinking that the entrance way to a healthier lifestyle – for most Americans – is through their mouths,” he told Insider. “But the core tenant of Blue Zones, and it took me about 10 years to realize what I’m about to tell you, none of them have better discipline, better diets, better individual responsibility, they don’t have better genes than us.”

Instead, “they live a long time because longevity happens to them,” Buettner said.

The homegrown, plant-based diets of the Blue Zones residents are only about half of the longevity equation, Buettner estimates. The rest is about making healthy choices the easiest ones by turning them into instinctual rituals of daily life that people don’t have to think about or use willpower to fight for.

Namely, Blue Zones residents – found in Sardinia, Italy; Okinawa, Japan; Nicoya, Costa Rica; Ikaria, Greece; and Loma Linda, California – move consistently through each day, live with purpose, and do it all with a little help from their friends.

Buettner reverse-engineered a “Blue Zone” in rural Minnesota, and people there lost four tons of fat

Buettner has successfully trialed this holistic approach in cities and towns across the US, with stunning success. In 2009, he piloted his first “Blue Zones Project” in Albert Lea, Minnesota. The goal was to reverse-engineer it into a Midwestern Blue Zone.

“If you want to live longer and be healthier, don’t try to change your behaviors, because that never lasts for the long run,” he said. “Think about changing your environment.”

For Albert Lea, that meant the town of roughly 18,000 people was pushed to do more daily movement, with citywide changes that turned healthful actions into the simplest choices.

The city added 10 miles of sidewalks and bike lanes for its residents, and local businesses made it easier to pick and eat healthy food. People started walking more and creating their own strolling groups that hit the streets together, collectively shedding 4 tons of weight (an average of 2.6 pounds per person). Smoking went down by 4% during the first five years of the program.

“When I started four years ago, I had high cholesterol and high blood pressure,” Albert Lea City Council Member Al Brooks told MinnPost in 2015, saying he started walking 2.5 miles a day since the city turned into a Blue Zone. “My cholesterol is lower, my blood pressure is 116/70, and I lost 15 pounds.”

Buettner has now consulted with dozens of other “Blue Zone Project” cities around the US that are trying his “ecosystem approach” to health and longevity, and saving millions of dollars in health insurance costs in the process.

The city of Fort Worth, Texas, for example, reduced its smoking rate 6% after partnering with Buettner in 2013. Fort Worth now saves an estimated $268 million annually as a result of that one action alone.That figure doesn’t even account for the tens of millions of dollars in other health care costs saved because of Blue Zone-inspired programs in the city.

But making it a habit to ditch smoking and move around throughout the day doesn’t mean you should neglect eating the crunchy vegetables, beans, fresh herbs, and oils that are so popular in the Blue Zones. Instead, Buettner’s eating advice aligns with what nutrition experts and dietitians consistently recommend.

He suggests formulating your diet around plants, including plenty of complex carbohydrates (like beans and whole grains) and making convenience snack foods, desserts, and trips to fast food joints the exception, not the norm.

“When it comes to longevity, there’s no short term fix,” Buettner said. “There’s no pill or supplement or hormone. If you’re not going to do something for years or decades, don’t even bother with it.”

Buettner’s new “Blue Zones Kitchen” cookbook is filled with vegetarian recipes from each of the five Blue Zones, but he says you don’t have to buy his tome to try out the eating technique. Instead, find “five or 10 recipes that you love.” Then make those foods, along with some consistent, regular movement at home, an integral part of your daily routine. You can even get lazy and skip the gym.

“The secret to eating for 100 is to find the plant-based foods, heavy with beans and grains and vegetables, and learn how to like ’em,” he said.

We had a middling week of gambling in Week 13 of the NFL season, going 8-8 against the spread to sustain through a tough week and keep us in the black so far this season.

This week, we’re back at it, picking every game with hopes of making a little cash.

Take a look below at our best bets for Week 14 of the NFL season (* indicates home team).

LAST WEEK: 8-8 OVERALL: 99-91-2


Chicago Bears* (+3) over Dallas Cowboys

It’s tough to trust either of these teams, with the Cowboys coming off of an embarrassing home loss to the Bills on Thanksgiving and the Bears barely scraping out a win against Lions undrafted rookie quarterback David Brough last week.

Thankfully, we have a trend to guide our bet this Thursday. According to the Action Network, nearly 80% of the bets and money on this game are backing the Cowboys. A road favorite with that much support in a national game is a dangerous proposition, so we’re going to take the Bears and hope Mitch Trubisky can keep it together.


Green Bay Packers* (-12.5) over Washington Redskins

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

Congratulations to Washington to winning two straight games, but that streak is almost certainly coming to an end this week during their trip to Green Bay.

The Packers are now in pole position in the race for the NFC North, but can’t let off the gas one bit, as they are still fending off a strong effort from the Vikings. It’s been a while since Aaron Rodgers and company have blown out an opponent in front of the home crowd. This is a great chance for them to put on a show for the Lambeau faithful.


Atlanta Falcons* (-3) over Carolina Panthers

On Tuesday, two days after an embarrassing loss to Washington that all but eliminated the Panthers from the race for the postseason, the Panthers’ front office decided to fire head coach Ron Rivera.

Since then, Panthers superstars have been only supportive of their former coach, sending him off with words of praise and encouragement. I might be overthinking this, but it’s tough to imagine a team that was just knocked out of the playoffs and lost a coach they adored getting up for a trip to Atlanta.


Detroit Lions (+12.5) over Minnesota Vikings*

source
Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The Vikings looked solid in a loss to the Seahawks on Monday, but this is too many points to be spotting a division rival in a game where the Lions would undoubtedly love to play spoiler.

David Brough was impressive in his first start for the Lions, debuting on a short week and in front of a national audience. He wasn’t a complete game-changer, but Brough could throw the ball and move the chains in the Lions offense, and this week will have literally twice as much time spent practicing with the first-team offense than he had going into his first game.


New Orleans Saints* (-2.5) over San Francisco 49ers

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

After a Monday night win over the Cleveland Browns back in October moved the 49ers to 4-0 on the season, cornerback Richard Sherman called out those that had doubted their undefeated start. “Don’t try to give us credit now, just stick,” Sherman said. “If you had us ranked 25, keep us ranked 25.”

San Francisco has proven themselves one of the best teams in the NFC in the weeks that followed, but after Sunday’s dramatic loss to the Ravens, they are still stuck in a wild card spot despite their 10-2 record.

Both losses have come at the hands of a last-second, game-winning field goal, and this Sunday, I think Saints kicker Will Lutz hits another one.


Indianapolis Colts (+3) over Tampa Bay Buccaneers*

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Colts have lost four of their past five games, but they’re still alive with an outside shot at stealing a wild card spot in the AFC if they can find a spark and get back on a run through the final four games of the season.

Despite the Buccaneers’ recent run of success, Indianapolis has more to play for right now.


Cleveland Browns* (-8.5) over Cincinnati Bengals

source
Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

There’s plenty of reasons to be wary of betting the Browns in this spot.

Cleveland had been banking on a run through the second half of the season to vault them into the AFC playoff picture, but their loss to the Steelers last week made playing into the postseason a doubtful outcome this year. Baker Mayfield is dealing with a hand injury, and despite his insistence that “Mama didn’t raise no wuss,” it never feels great betting on a quarterback that’s not firing at full force. Further, this is a divisional game against a Bengals team that just got its first taste of victory on the season and might be hungry for more.

And yet, we’re still backing the Browns. There’s too much firepower on this offense to ignore. While Cincinnati has been playing tough in recent weeks, I have a tough time imagining how their defense will be able to account for Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry, and Kareem Hunt running routes together.


New York Jets* (-5) over Miami Dolphins

This is an Adam Gase revenge game.

I’ve got a feeling that the Jets head coach will pull out all the stops to defeat his former team, and seeing as the Dolphins already used what has to be the best trick play in their playbook last week against the Eagles, I’m not sure how they will be able to answer.


Denver Broncos (+9.5) over Houston Texans*

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Drew Lock looked capable during his debut last week for the Broncos, leading Denver to a 23-20 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. While the Texans are a far tougher test, this feels like a possible hangover game for Houston, who is coming off of a big win over the Patriots in Week 13. I don’t think the Broncos have the horses to win this game, but they can keep it close enough to cover.


Buffalo Bills* (+5.5) over Baltimore Ravens

source
Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

I promised myself I wouldn’t bet against Lamar Jackson and the Ravens again after their Week 9 win over the Patriots, but lo and behold here I am.

I still don’t believe in the Bills – I think their record is fraudulent and that better teams should expose them through these final four games and the postseason. But last week, that logic burned me, with Buffalo outplaying the Cowboys in all three phases of the game while cruising to a Thanksgiving victory over America’s team.

Now they’re back home and facing the hottest team in football. The Ravens don’t especially need this win with games against the Jets and Browns coming next and their spot in the playoffs already all but locked up. Forgive the cliché, but I think the Bills want it more.


Los Angeles Chargers (-3) over Jacksonville Jaguars*

This is a great game to skip on your betting slip this week, as both teams are impossible to figure out. The Chargers are 4-8 but sport a positive point differential, with all eight of their losses coming by seven points or less. The Jaguars have lost four straight and are now dealing with a brewing quarterback controversy on the heels of Nick Foles’ benching.

I’ll back the Chargers because it feels like they have to win one of these games eventually, but I don’t feel great about it.


Oakland Raiders* (+3) over Tennessee Titans

source
Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders only have two games left in Oakland before leaving for Las Vegas, and I think head coach Jon Gruden and his players are going to stop at nothing to leave the Black Hole on a high note.

The Titans are lowkey one of the hottest teams in the NFL right now, with Derrick Henry averaging an unfathomable 165 yards rushing over his last three games, but that streak has to cool off at some point…right?


Kansas City Chiefs (+3) over New England Patriots

source
Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Patrick Mahomes is 0-2 in his career so far against Tom Brady and the Patriots, with both losses coming dramatically.

In Week 6 last year, the Chiefs were bested by a field goal as time expired in Foxborough. When the teams met for a rematch in the AFC Championship, Mahomes managed a miraculous last-second drive to set up a game-tying field goal and send the game to overtime. However, he was then forced to watch from the sideline as Brady drove the field to end the game with a touchdown on the opening possession of the extra period.

Simply put, these games have been close – even if Mahomes can’t win this game, the idea of him getting blown out by this version of the Patriots is tough to fathom.


Pittsburgh Steelers (-3) over Arizona Cardinals*

source
Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Another game I would pass on betting in favor of just enjoying Chiefs-Patriots during the late-afternoon games. Since I have to take a side, I’ll back the Steelers because they still are playing for a postseason spot while the Cardinals are already planning for next year. That said, Arizona has looked strong in recent weeks and should be a fun team to watch in 2020.


Los Angeles Rams* (+0.5) over Seattle Seahawks

source
Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

These two teams met in Week 5 when the Rams missed a potential game-winning 44-yard field goal with 15 seconds remaining to lose 30-29.

This should be an all-in game for Los Angeles, as another loss would be a substantial blow to their playoff chances. I think they find a way to win.


New York Giants (+9.5) over Philadelphia Eagles*

With Daniel Jones dealing with an injury, Eli Manning is set to start this game for the Giants – his first start since Week 2 of the season.

Manning’s future is uncertain, with retirement, a team change, or another year as Jones’ backup all options on the table. But regardless of what his future holds, an upset win over a floundering Eagles team would be quite the curtain call.

As a Philadelphia fan, I’m well-practiced in imagining the worst, only to see those imaginations exceeded by a cruel reality. The Giants have a shot to end our playoff hopes at home on national television. I don’t know how it can get worse, but I’m confident Manning will find a way.
