if our world isn't stuck in the past, why is higher education? we say if there's a better path, you should take it. and when there isn't, well, you know where i'm going with that. don't do things by the book if the book can't keep up. take your page from one that hasn't been written. we took two renowned universities, including a premier medical school, and created a single university that defies convention. at jefferson, we're making modern look old and making old look new and making sure new is not enough. we're adding more weight to your degrees and more meaning to your careers,
going where others wouldn't dare, making connections few think to make and setting tomorrow's standards by breaking today's. because we believe the lines that are drawn are meant to converge. that's where the future is born. and once you realize you're not limited to what's possible, guess what? you redefine all that will be. ♪ it looks like we're seeing the oscars unfold in real life. up for best movie three
billboards outside of ebbing missouri. today three billboards outside cleveland, ohio. philadelphia based company put up billboards today pretty close to the cavaliers quicken loans arena asking lebron james to come to the sixers. here's a look at them. from adding him to the line up hash tag philly wants lebron and complete the process. it's possible lebron could come here next season since he's a free agent but i really don't think it will happen nor would it be good for the sixers in the long run. here's why. this is a team that is trying to create something that will last for a long time. trying to get longevity. lebron james doesn't feel like a good fit for the sixers. you'll have to over pay for guy that likely will only be here for few years. before going back to cleveland to finish his career. that's exactly what he's going to do. yes, he would bring some immediate success. but would it be sustainable. i don't know. the sixers already have the talent. they just need to trust that process continue to develop and they're going to find that success on their own. iain. >> kristen, thank.
