Is there someone in my network who could help me double-check a Google translation of about 400 words from Portuguese to English? I came across a document some time ago that translated the teacher personalities of Hogwarts to “agile coach” personas. I’d like to share that, once I’m confident the translation isn’t completely awful. (edit: I’ve found a few willing helpers. Thank you!)

Hearing a story on NPR about streaming video services and ad-support, and one of the reporters said “x has to keep growing”. Talk about cultural blindness and indoctrination. Why do businesses have to keep growing? What about equilibrium? What about stopping when we’ve reached our goals? Isn’t the global mega-crisis rooted in the theory that growth is always good and can be unlimited?
