New York Times regular columnist, Mr. Nicholas D. Kristof, double winner of the Pulitzer Price, had a very interesting experience with the attempts of rescuing young girls from Cambodian world of human sex trafficking. This page from New York Times offers few articles describing his efforts and the fate of the two girls, who were sold into prostitution, and bought out with cash by Mr. Kristof. Worth reading. Video (a series of videos)of this and related stories from Cambodia. Also, a video about a Pakistani woman escaping from a brothel.

Blog readability test

blog-readability-test.jpg So my blog scored college undergrad level. Somehow I can't believe it, but if it's truth, is good, since English is my third language. Or forth. I wonder if they measure Polish posts too? I think they just measure the vocabulary usage. If they would check grammar & composition etc. I would be in biiiig trouble.

Anyway. I guess that tells me I am qualified to homeschool my kids. Because I started to doubt it some time ago when it came to 4th grade level of spelling...

...10 minutes later...

So I checked this site and I don't think it's, after all, truly resembling the level of the content in my blog. Plus there is some info that it included some hidden embed code.

But being intrigued by the processI checked it with this site and I am on the level 9.0, MOST POPULAR NOVELS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At least a little better than TV guides!

The levels are:

6:TV guides, The Bible, Mark Twain

8: Reader's Digest

8 - 10: Most popular novels

10: Time, Newsweek

11: Wall Street Journal

14: The Times, The Guardian

15 - 20: Academic papers

Over 20: Only government sites can get away with this, because you can't ignore them.

Over 30: The government is covering something up

It also tells me that a reader is required to have 9 years of schooling to get what I write. Another calculation says that most people will get what I write.

So now I am rethinking my homeschooling again.
