comment Is there a higher standard of kashrut for chicken analogous to “chalak beit yosef” for beef?
Glatt means smooth lungs (no lesions). Fowl have lungs, and they need to be smooth to be kosher. We just don't check them because there usually isn't any issues with them, and therefore they are B'chezkat Kosher. ohr.edu/ask_db/ask_main.php/224/Q4

comment Being Mekayem a zecher
Kitzur Yakut Yosef brings a reason why we don't make a bracha over Parshat Zachor. Because G-d is not happy with the destruction of the wicked, and we do not bless destruction.
