Enable compression

Compressing resources with gzip or deflate can reduce the number of bytes sent over the network.
Enable compression for the following resources to reduce their transfer size by 177KiB (70% reduction).
Compressing https://code.createjs.com/createjs-2015.11.26.min.js could save 138KiB (74% reduction).
Compressing https://ml314.com/tag.aspx?842017 could save 14.5KiB (62% reduction).
Compressing https://d8rk54i4mohrb.cloudfront.net/js/reach.js could save 8.9KiB (60% reduction).
Compressing https://j.6sc.co/6si.min.js could save 7.7KiB (58% reduction).
Compressing https://d8rk54i4mohrb.cloudfront.net/container.htm…e_buster=1494249964675 could save 3.4KiB (63% reduction).
Compressing https://edge.api.brightcove.com/playback/v1/accoun…1/videos/5409740563001 could save 3.3KiB (74% reduction).
Compressing https://wfpscripts.webspectator.com/bootstrap/ws-3A5FB6A9.js could save 1.3KiB (56% reduction).
Prioritize visible content

Your page requires additional network round trips to render the above-the-fold content. For best performance, reduce the amount of HTML needed to render above-the-fold content.
The entire HTML response was not sufficient to render the above-the-fold content. This usually indicates that additional resources, loaded after HTML parsing, were required to render above-the-fold content. Prioritize visible content that is needed for rendering above-the-fold by including it directly in the HTML response.
None of the final above-the-fold content could be rendered even with the full HTML response.
Minify HTML

Compacting HTML code, including any inline JavaScript and CSS contained in it, can save many bytes of data and speed up download and parse times.
Minify HTML for the following resources to reduce their size by 9.3KiB (29% reduction).
Minifying https://cdns.us1.gigya.com/gs/webSdk/Api.aspx?apiK…eqW57_fNx29GDl9YdzZLvH could save 9.3KiB (29% reduction) after compression.
