This would be (partially) fixed by reducing the whitespace between the 
title and the description. Our eyes are attracted to whitespaces, so 
this is one of the key areas that makes or breaks a design. As it stands 
the description is stranded and has nothing to lead one into it; whereas 
the sidebar is taller, in bold, in highlight color,...
