It would be much more user friendly if the <h3> within the <ul> list was a <h4> to 
conform with the Header structure. Also, with a large number of <article> 
sections, it would be extremely helpful if the <article> container had an 
identifier text label. Possibly put an "id=" on the inner "h" or "a" elements and 
include a "aria-labelledby=" in the <article> container. Large number of identical 
containers with no text labels makes content understanding limiting for screen 
readers.
