  1. I don't think you are supposed to cut and paste the entire article even if it is yours. If it is used with permission, I think that should be noted. This article looks like it was credited to Kathleen Phillips @ Texas A&M. I would hate my writings to not be credited.
  2. Thanks for the feedback. I found the originating link and updated the article to be an excerpt only linking back to the page which includes a video.
