Rescan Mobile Usability: 98/100 Mobile Usability Test Quick Overview

Size tap targets appropriately

Some of the links/buttons on your webpage may be too small for a user to easily tap on a touchscreen. Consider making these tap targets larger to provide a better user experience.
The following tap targets are close to other nearby tap targets and may need additional spacing around them.
The tap target <a href="">Video</a> and 2 others are close to other tap targets.
The tap target <a href="#" class="d-more">More</a> is close to 1 other tap targets.
The tap target <a href="#" class="d-more">More</a> is close to 1 other tap targets.
The tap target <a href="http://www.sta…/05/270680.htm">Foreign Affairs Day</a> and 1 others are close to other tap targets.
The tap target <li id="slick-slide00" class="slick-active">1</li> is close to 4 other tap targets.
The tap target <li id="slick-slide01">2</li> and 1 others are close to other tap targets.
The tap target <a href="/misc/112234.htm">Archive</a> and 9 others are close to other tap targets. Mobile Speed: 51/100 Mobile Speed Test Quick Overview

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

Your page has 8 blocking script resources and 3 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.…on/js/vendor/jquery.js…n/js/foundation.min.js…modernizr/modernizr.js
Optimize CSS Delivery of the following:
Avoid landing page redirects

Your page has 2 redirects. Redirects introduce additional delays before the page can be loaded.
Avoid landing page redirects for the following chain of redirected URLs.
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 199.9KiB (68% reduction).
Compressing could save 52.3KiB (66% reduction).
Compressing…&videoId=5413780045001 could save 50.2KiB (67% reduction).
Compressing…&videoId=5420267717001 could save 36.2KiB (66% reduction).
Compressing could save 24.7KiB (75% reduction).
Compressing could save 11KiB (75% reduction).
Compressing…5/videos/5420267717001 could save 7.2KiB (84% reduction).
Compressing…&videoId=5423714863001 could save 5.8KiB (57% reduction).
Compressing…5/videos/5423714863001 could save 4.5KiB (79% reduction).
Compressing…5/videos/5413780045001 could save 4.2KiB (78% reduction).
Compressing…nts/icomoon.ttf?x2xmod could save 3.8KiB (44% reduction).
Optimize images

Properly formatting and compressing images can save many bytes of data.
Optimize the following images to reduce their size by 103.9KiB (46% reduction).
Compressing could save 53.9KiB (48% reduction).
Compressing could save 10KiB (46% reduction).
Compressing could save 9.6KiB (47% reduction).
Compressing could save 9.1KiB (45% reduction).
Compressing could save 8KiB (48% reduction).
Compressing could save 6.8KiB (47% reduction).
Compressing could save 3.8KiB (32% reduction).
Compressing could save 943B (26% reduction).
Compressing could save 922B (51% reduction).
Compressing could save 902B (29% 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.
Only about 65% of the final above-the-fold content could be rendered with the full HTML response.
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:…_hash=AQBRnCgK1CvQXWmc (10 seconds)…_ate.track.config_resp (60 seconds)…300&with_replies=false (5 minutes) (10 minutes)…5/videos/5413780045001 (14 minutes)…5/videos/5420267717001 (14 minutes)…5/videos/5423714863001 (14 minutes) (20 minutes) (30 minutes) (2 hours)
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 14.3KiB (65% reduction).
Minifying…modernizr/modernizr.js could save 10.2KiB (66% reduction) after compression.
Minifying could save 4.1KiB (64% reduction) after compression. Mobile Resources
