comment How to check blood sugar on Shabbos
@Shokhet It's been a while but try searching for "eglei tal shinui" I think it's the Eglei Tal who is the dominant position on one side.

comment How to check blood sugar on Shabbos
@Shokhet Some say it is a valid shinui, others say it isn't. (This is a standing machloket achronim.)

comment How to check blood sugar on Shabbos
@Shokhet Ask a non-Jew? Set it on a timer to poke every 5 minutes all of Shabbat? I know we may allow deoraitas if it's actually necessary (and I bet with careful dietary planning one could greatly minimize risk) but we sure do try to avoid it.

comment discrepancy between parashat emor and yechezkel regarding if it is possible for a kohen to be mitame for a spouse
That's your biggest question on that chapter in Yechezkeil??

Your Shinui in Step 2 might not be effective as a Shinui because the needle is still poking in the same way.

comment Does a transparent hair-covering fulfil the halacha?
The other answer appears to be unfortunately confused about a number of concepts, as it is discussing regulations about concealing ervah. (Always worth looking back at original sources instead of making diyukim in late 20th century English Halacha guides.)

comment Was a sefer torah ever actually written in Greek?
"There was a general prohibition within Judaism at that time not to write the holy books into languages other than Hebrew and Aramaic." This is simply not true. A Torah could be written in Hebrew or Greek, but not Aramaic (except the Aramaic phrases in it).

No, it definitely means they caused the deficiency in the moon.

@Seth I guess something like "regulations of Moses"?

comment Woman's hair covering in the home or in private
"MiDeOraitha the exposed hair of a married woman is considered nudity" ??? Who holds that? Sear Isha Erva is learned from a verse in Canticles (cf. Brachot 24). How is that DeOraitha?
