comment Is it forbidden for a woman to learn Gemara?
Here are some words of explanation. "כל המלמד את ביתו תורה כאילו מלמדה תיפלות" ,סוטה כ"א next one: צוו חכמים שלא ילמד אדם בתו תורה מפני שרוב הנשים אין דעתן מכוונת להתלמד אלא הן מוציאות דברי תורה לדברי הבאי לפי עניות דעתן (רמבם הלכות תלמוד תורה פרק א הלכה יג).

comment Named a male by mistake with a female name
I've heard a story that there was a boy that was called Rochel, and Rav Kanevski told to ADD him another boy-name and not to cancel the girl name he got.

comment Eglah Arufah (עגלה ערופה) Measurement
As far as I remember, in that Mishna there is also an opinion that the measure is done from the hub of the corpse.

comment Lego on Shabbos
I've asked my Rav, he lives in Bnei-Brak and his name is Refael Antin (there is no chance you can know him). Source to the opposite opinion: שמירת שבת כהלכתה פרק ט"ז , הלכה י"ח He says that it is allowed to plays blocks that are easily removed, but it they are not easily removed it is forbidden, and in any case He says in halakha aleph that all toys are allowed just for children and not for adults. But there is a slight discussion in heara נ"ג, so the conclusion is a bit dimmed.

comment The male name Yona
Maybe you can call Yona to both male and female bird and Noah just "occasionally" took a female bird. However the male version was caught more because of Yona Hanavi.
