problem with first page

I'm trying to convert some html pages (downloaded) to epub. For example i'll upload here pdf and epub (when i'm converting i'm converting from html to epub). I'm converting it from command prompt and one of the arguments is "--no-default-epub-cover". Problem is that web pages have banner and when i convert html to epub, this first picture (banner) is only element on first page even though there is blank space for text. Any suggestion is welcom .

Some things just don't 'convert' without editorial help

This is one because you have a exception(s) to a generally wanted rule: break before a header tag
1) the first image may be treated as a 'cover' by calibre (that can be controlled)
2) The break before H# tag rule


15 seconds with Sigil (a simple merge the first 2 files) fixed the unwanted split
