A wunderkammer of discoveries, compiled by Comment and illuminated for our readers' edification and entertainment. We do not necessarily endorse the external content below.


Today's gardening author, Brian Dijkema, publishes a gardening blog that's well worth reading.


. . . Comment author John Terrill is doing great work at Seattle Pacific University's Center for Integrity in Business. Check out their new website, author and speaker lineup, and especially their profound Thought Leadership musings.


. . . The Center for Public Justice in Washington, D.C. is hosting Civitas 2010 and The Civitas School in July: concurrent one-week experiences about Christian faith and politics.


. . . Redeemer University College is hosting Dr. Theodore Roosevelt Malloch on March 30, 2010, for the inaugural event in their "Business & Life Series." Malloch will speak on the concepts laid out in his book Spiritual Enterprise: Doing Virtuous Business. Find out more at www.redeemer.ca/malloch.


. . . Finally, Curator Magazine today ran an important alert on Human Trafficking, Craigslist, and Kijiji. As reported on CNN, YouTube, and CNET, anyone familiar with Craigslist knows this is going on. The New York Times reported in November 2008 that Craigslist had agreed to curb sex ads, but five months later the crackdown struggle was going slowly. Also find some helpful resources at Change.org. Probably the best organization Comment knows in the fight against human slavery and trafficking is the Not For Sale Campaign, orchestrated by Comment author David Batstone.
