Re-posting and Translation Rights

Due to Google’s Analytics Penalty, I unfortunately cannot grant permission of re-posting my posts in their entirety. Google penalizes websites for duplicate publishing.  Since they are unable to differentiate which site is the original host, I run a hazard of being penalized for granting permission.

With regards to translation and possible publication of my work in another language; I’m unable to validate the organization my work will be associated with ergo I don’t allow it to be translated.
