You're missing an underscore _ for fast_shipping and Fast_Shipping.

As Cheo pointed out, one issue is that the value of the first item needs to be fast_shipping (with an underscore).

But in both cases, the "for" attribute of the label should match the "id" attribute of the input. So the first one should have for="shipping", and the second should have for="newsletter".

got it, thank you!
