Sounds more like the mishna in Berachot 4:4 רבי יהושע אומר המהלך במקום סכנה מתפלל תפלה קצרה אומר: הושע השם את עמךz את שארית ישראל בכל פרשת העבור יהיו צרכיהם לפניך בא"י שומע תפלה"

Gentlemen, thank you for your interesting notes but the question is clear. The same question on localisation exists for Kisei Kevodo as for Moshav Yekaro.

comment What halachic issues are involved in the use of a trouser press in the nine days?
I asked my LOR and he said, it's like ironing (@DoubleAA) but you can put the trousers in the press and not turn on the heating element. (All talking about weekdays).

comment Returning lost property
@DanF I've read much of the article and cannot extract more than you. The critical point is "if you decided to exchange the lost item, it means that you have possessed ownership of the item." It sounds reasonable to me but I'm not an expert in these things. (Please see my second answer.)

comment Why do we only cover the head during Tachnun if there is a Aron Hakodesh
It's not dependent on an Aron Kodesh. It depends on having a sefer Torah present.
