comment Exercises to prevent eyes tiring
@All. The site is about Jewish Life and Learning so this is not my specific question it's about learning in general.

comment Answering Multiple People Saying Kaddish Out-Of-Sync
If the person that says Kaddish has no 10 that answers Amen after him it is his problem not the congregation's one, so I don't understand why the @msh210's practice is not a norm.

comment Why is 'Rabbenu Tam' called Rabbenu Tam?
It's not a play on words, you don't need the lat Tam. Just: "He canceled gzeira of Tam".

comment connection of obligation to keep mitzvos and sexual maturity
:)) We are now learning that place and my question was initiated exactly by that gemarah. There is a Tosfos that says that in past a boy could be a father at age 8 and also he says that in past the hairs were growing in more young age.

comment connection of obligation to keep mitzvos and sexual maturity
@Dave from 9 years he can only make a sexual act that's why laws of Yichud are relevant to him, but to bring children he can just from 13 AFAIR. Also שתי שערות is a sign exactly of sexual maturity and not something else.

comment Is it permissible to erase the name of G-d from an E-reader?
About the CRT screens I've heard that because the name of G-d is actually constructed from set of dots (like a mosaic as you said) it is not a problem to erase it. The are more reasons to permit erasing on CRT screens, but this one applies also to E-ink.

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.

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.
