Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content

Your page has 2 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.
Optimize CSS Delivery of the following:
http://www.latimes.com/as/prod/lanews/stylesheets/…2c78ad6b70d3df.min.css
http://www.latimes.com/as/prod/lanews/stylesheets/…7a9bb35071f9cf.min.css
Leverage browser caching

Setting an expiry date or a maximum age in the HTTP headers for static resources instructs the browser to load previously downloaded resources from local disk rather than over the network.
Leverage browser caching for the following cacheable resources:
http://abcnewsplayer-a.akamaihd.net/player/2.64.0.0010/amp.premier/amp.svg (expiration not specified)
http://publish.responsiveads.com/ads/58dbff2afe5ffee41a000022/img/1140.jpg (expiration not specified)

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 JavaScript

Compacting JavaScript code can save many bytes of data and speed up downloading, parsing, and execution time.
Minify JavaScript for the following resources to reduce their size by 28.1KiB (38% reduction).
Minifying https://s.abcnews.com/assets/js/merlin-core.js?v=3.55 could save 14.5KiB (37% reduction).
Minifying https://s.abcnews.com/assets/js/merlin-ext.js?v=3.55 could save 13KiB (40% reduction).
Minifying http://assets.bounceexchange.com/assets/bounce/overlay2.js could save 565B (19% reduction) after compression.
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 13.1KiB (19% reduction).
Minifying http://www.latimes.com/ could save 11.2KiB (18% reduction) after compression.
Minifying http://abcnews.go.com/video/embed?id=abc_live4 could save 1.9KiB (28% reduction).
