comment All you need is love?
What about "And Jacob loved Rachel?" The professor apparently has a psycho-philosophical difficulty with the verse (and is not alone), but it doesn't strike me as being a compelling argument that the verb doesn't mean "love."

comment Mitzvah of living in Eretz Yisrael
The work as a whole may not be one of halachah, but he uses halachic arguments therein. How is this "not showing research effort, unclear, or un-useful?"

comment If someone has BO and can't smell themselves, may they say blessings?
Is BO a bad odor WRT Torah? It's my impression that it's decay, not sweat, that is the issue. Also, for what it's worth everyone smelled strongly in earlier times.

comment Is it OK to eat non-certified-as-kosher sushi?
Well, the fact that some sushi fauna are nonkosher would give me concern. Also I don't know if "so many pretty frum people" is grounds for a question; do you know if any rav rules that it is allowed? What [type of] community are we dealing with?

comment Commencing Shabbos: Shkiya behind a mountain
Based on my Internet roamings on this earlier, there are two elevations: that of the person, and that of the horizon. IOW both being higher/lower myself, and the terrain at the horizon, are factors in the time of the sun's apparent setting. The question regards the horizon, but it sounds like the teshuvah you cite is dealing with the elevation of the person.

comment Halakha book for modern working place
There is a book called 9:00 to 5:00 by Rabbi Shmuel Neiman. It is focused on gender relations and is quite restrictive. I'm not going to cite it as an answer since it doesn't focus on the ethical as per the question, but I feel like it bears mentioning in this context.
