comment Why was the Gemara written in Aramaic?
Do you think that the book of Daniel being in Aramaic has any bearing or possible answer to this question?

comment HaGaon HaRav Asher Weiss Shelita and Techelet
Here is a list of audio lectures by Rav Weiss about Tzitzis. I must confess I did not listen to them all the way through and what I did hear did not mention Tachelet, but I still thought they might be interesting in this context. Enjoy. Rabbi Asher Weiss on TzitTzit Go to link, go to Bamidbar, Shlach, and there you will find the list of shiurim.

comment Tu B'shvat Seder
@msh210 it is a common practice in synagogues and schools to have what is known as a Tu b'Shavat Seder. You drink 4 cups of wine and eat fruits and say brachot. There are a lot of variants to the Seder and no one seems to do it the same way, thus at least part of the question.

comment Sefardic contemporaries for Techelet?
BTW in the Jewish Press this week there is an article about the last 20 years of Techelet, I have not read it yet, but I noticed it.

comment Proper age to take a child to Shul
(Note: My girls do not go to shul. My Rebbi's wife said that "in Europe", the girls only went to shul for Shabbas Kallah. In addition, this promotes the problem of kids being around the shul as the wife feels she has to go to shul.) I completely disagree, why should the woman feel she has to go to shul, shouldn't she be going? I take offense to this.
