comment Why have there been no Hashgachas on DVDs, books, CDs, etc.?
@YEZ: Just like one who sells food is forced to take an Hashgacha, otherwise it will not sell, if this became common practice, then no one would buy a book, cd, or dvd without a Hashgacha/Haskama.

@IsaacMoses: Well Sefarim generally have Haskamos, however books, cd's and dvd's do not. The Haskama system if extended to these products would be similar as to a Hasgacha.

comment Mentioning our sins on Shabbos Rosh Chodesh
The bigger question is the total change of Nusach on Rosh Chodesh that coincides with Shabbos. On Yom Tov we add in Shabbos words however the Nusach remains the same, however on Rosh Chodesh there is a completely different Nusach on Shabbos which we do not say during the week.

comment Women having more than one set of earrings?
Tznius is when one calls attention to themselves. Not only with how they dress, also how they act and talk, etc. There are earrings that even one pair attracts attention and there are earrings where two or three do not.
