if you look in the new levush, they bring in the footnotes from the Elyah Rabbah (I think, but may be confusing with s/t else) a list of all the winters and which came true and which didn't
It would be the Elya Rabba since that is who the PMG is quoting.

It would be 2015 but not 2014.

Can you have an Amazon Echo on in your home on Shabbos if each time you speak it is checking for the wake-up word Alexa?

I would assume it's not aloud as it is a פסיק רישא

You don't need to turn it off before Shabbos, but you musn't talk to it directly on Shabbos.
Brevity may be the soul of wit, but floridity is its spirit.

Five Roses Tea, 100 Tagless Teabags https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003WOTXQI/

Does this tea need a hechsher?

Or better does tea need a hechsher?
seems like there may be kashrus concerns in flavored teas, therefore "requiring" a hechsher.
