The problem is with this line:

public class newCall{};

What you are doing here is creating a new class called "newCall" which is not what we want to do.

What you really want to do is create a Call variable and use the newCall() method to assign it. You have to do this after you have created the request. This is what that looks like.

Call call = client.newCall(request);

"client" and "request" were already defined in the starting code.
