Re: Not Showing HTTPS is being secure
Yes, it seems they still use mixed content (embbeded content from non-HTTPS sites). In this event it is still possible for attackers to inject content into the site if they are MITMing your connection. Additionally, it may be  possible for a passive individual monitoring the network to determine what article/page you are looking at based on other non-HTTPS pages that were requested. Still this is a good first step on the path to providing a fully secured experience.

This is the message chrome shows when looking at the https

your connection to this site is not fully secure

HTTPS: not quite right
Unfortunately, when clicking the HTTPS link, I got redirected to a page stating:
