I tried to give credit to the original sources as good as I could, and if I missed one, please let me know and I fix it. While it is netiquette to instead link to the respective articles, this would not have worked for this site as I incorporated pictures as much as possible in a never before done manner, and in addition used very different groupings than most other sites. So instead, I give credit to the original authors and encourage you to go to their sites for more information and to read their view on the topics.
