I have to agree with Lumpy. Some of the photographs are questionable.Also there are some spelling mistakes in some of the pages. Using a Content Management System such as Wordpress is good however there are drawback to using such a system. Plagerism from the Wackenhut Website is not good.

You quoted directly from the Wackenhut site the following "About Wackenhut

Also here "The Wackenhut Corporation is the leading provider of quality, customer focused security solutions in the United States. The company provides its industry-leading integrated security and related services to local, regional and national customers.

Wackenhut’s primary service divisions include Security Services, Nuclear Security and Energy Consulting Services, Government Services, and Consulting and Investigations." From the Security services area.

You can be legally held responsible on your website for these infractions. Also I do not see a Bibliography where you found any of your information such as Wackenhuts permission to use content from their website. You are responsible as a website designer not to infringe on copyrights of other websites.

Lastly if you are going to use someones information from their site it is a good rule of thumb to get their okay to use an image or text. Use that bibliography I was referencing to.

I Know that Joerg has a copyright on his website and maybe you should look into putting one on yours if these are in fact genuinly your writings and photographs.

My Two cents
