comment Calculation methods for intermediate time of chanukah lighting
1/ if 4 mil is 50 min, 3/4 mil is (50/4 x 3/4) = 9.375 then rounded up (to the minute) = 10 minutes 2/ see gemara Shabbat 34b, night time is calculated as equal to the time it takes to walk 3/4 of a "mil" after sunset and it's the shitta of the Geonim and the GR"A

comment Why put on Tefillin shel yad halfway?
an interesting point I learn while searching information on the way one wraps the retzuos around the middle finger : the Brisker practice to wrap around the finger before starting on the tefillah shel rosh (see Hilchos HaGra uminhag siman 38, Teshuvot Vehanhagot 1:38 and 4:10 from Rav Sternbuch shlita)
