The shailo exists because the ink is permanent, even if the battery woyld die the ink would remain on the surface

The shailo exists because people think  the ink is permanent, since even if the battery would die the ink would remain on the surface but in reality it is nothing more than an etch n sketch.

It sounds like you questioning these facts?
Maybe google "e ink" first to get a better understanding of how the black charged particles are permanently attached to the surface.
Its basic physics.

Halacha is that one must use a goy and a shinuy wherever possible with a woman in labor.

Poskim say that in matters of a yoledes (which is also pikuach nefesh but on a lower level than a regular choleh sheyesh bo sakana) one must use a shinuy and a goy.


Are you sure they are talking about a yoledes or stam pikuach nefesh?

if you have a choice between a frum or non-religious, you should use the frum because he has pikuach nefesh docheh shabbos. And the the non religious one doesn't have that heter because he'd be mechalel shabbos anyways

What's the Halochas for driving a wife in labour to the hospital on shabbos?

e.g.  am i allowed to drive her when if theoretically i can call a cab?

anything else?
My Rebbe has done it on more than one occasion, I did it once. Practically speaking, it's probably easier to get away with in EY because they know you won't move it and will (hopefully) cooperate in bringing a goy to move it/turn it off. In America (and elsewhere) they'd probably tow your car (or steal it) - it probably depends on the area/ Jewish population density. Basically, you're going to want to know beforehand the setup and prepare accordingly.

Yes, even yoledes. A yid has (more) chashivus for nefesh so it will be more of a pikuach.

Whats the bottom line re E-INK re mechikas hashem?
(Applies to the nook noki and many tablets)
I haven't read up on how it works exactly, but it would at minimum be the same as on an old palm pilot which I was told by a major posek that it's "k'en mechikas hasem" - which I took to mean not assur, but not a good idea

Re dropping a kli in the Mikva by tevilas keilim: ( http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=17387.msg791654.msg#791654)
The Ramo paskens that tevilas kelim does not need kavana. A koton Need's supervision just to verify the tevila.

R' akiva iger (in 120) is mesupak whether one may make a brocho after the tevila. He references the Eshel Avrohom in 323:7, The case is: someone receiving a glass from a goy on Shabbos. Ramo says to  do a tevila by filling it up with water, so that the tevila is unrecognized. The MA comments that no brocho should be made, as this would make the tevila obvious. P"m discusses the option of making the brocho post facto. Interestingly, He basis the assumption that this is possible on the machlokes in y"d 200, if all tevilas are like tevilas ger and therefore the brocho is said post facto. (IMHO a big chiddush to stretch this to keilim) 

The biur halach, when discussing the MA in 323:7, suggests making a brocho while the kli is still (fully) submerged.
This implies that, while he does not mention the chiddush of the PM, he would be OK with making the brocho post facto if the tevila is still happening.

Bottom line, IMHO, it would come out, that if one drops a kli in the Mikva, the best suggestion is to leave it submerged and make the brocho.

This is just for discussion purposes, ask YLOR!

Many poskim hold by a yoledes you don't get davka a yid, unless its an actual pikuach nefesh situation

I know the Alter Rebbe writes in shulchan aruch to do everything possible through a goy. I'm pretty sure it's not his chiddush.

Is there a Halachic problem with regular yoga? Does all yoga incorporate Avodah Zarah unless it's specifically 'Kashered'?
