Actually, I take it back. Apparently there is some discussion in the later poskim as to whether the M"B meant to include a scenario like this year, where shaving erev shabbos involves 'violating' the tzava'a of R Yehuda Hachasid. I don't have the specific maareh mekomos handy, but I heard that Rav Vosner and Rav Chaim Kanievsky said it's not included in the M"B's heter, while Rav Moshe said it is.

ETA - Specific maareh mekomos for this machlokes here: https://judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/113721/may-one-shave-haircut-on-friday-rosh-chodesh-iyar.

And obviously this later machlokes is only relevant if you follow the tzava'a of R Yehuda Hachasid the rest of the year as well.
Either way you need 33 days. So if you shave on R"C  your adding a day and you have take that day from somehwere...

From Rabbi David Sperling——
Question: Can a family listen to uplifting music during the quarantine of corona?

Answer: Shalom,
Thank you for your question. First, let me send my blessings for complete health for all, and a speedy end to the virus in the world.
The custom not to listen to music during the days of the counting of the Omer has sources going back hundreds of year, but it is not mentioned in the Talmud, nor even in the Shulchan Aruch. As such, we can approach your question with more space to rule leniently.
There is not a complete consensus among the Rabbis as to the clear limits of this custom.  When it come to recorded music - some forbid only live music, allowing all recorded music. Some forbid any recorded music at all, even purely vocal recordings. Some allow only recorded vocal music without instruments. Others allow recorded instrumental music on the condition that it is not dance music, but more gentle slow music. Others allow recorded religious music that helps one serve Hashem. In short – even before we discuss the question of listening this year in quarantine, the custom itself is not so clear.
However, even those who in years past took a strict practice, and refrained from listening to music (according to whichever ruling) may be more lenient under the present situation. This is because when a person is confined to their house in many cases this can lead to depression and other physiological troubles. The custom of not listening to music was only to avoid excessive joy. With this in mind, listening to recorded music this year will probably not lead to excessive joy – rather just help a person not fall into painful sorrow.
So, in answer to your question – yes, this year in the lock-down situation we find ourselves, someone who feels that listening to music will help them get through the troubles, may (and should) listen. (I have also seen in the name of many great Rabbis who ruled like this).
Blessings.

Don't see how that would affect the actual question that we were discussing. I know for me certainly your point wouldn't be a big deal. I can keep both halves, shaving on R"C, lag ba'omer, and before shavuos. Lots more than 33 days.

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Sorry if this was asked elsewhere.

Is there any maalah in giving out aliyos to someone who is socially distanced from the Torah over just having the Baal koreh take them all? The other way makes much more sense...

More then 6 feet away, doubtful. (This minyan was doing this even when people where hundreds of feet from the Seder Torah)

Rav Shternbuch said to do this. He seems to be a daas yochid about this.

Did he give a reason? I guess there's a "Heter" that the minhag is to give a sumah, although only shelo l'vaysho which doesn't apply here..

It is coming from sumah showing that it can be more flexible.

שומע כעונה לא סגי בקריאת התורה, דמדינא צריך העולה לקרות מתוך הכתב ממש כמבואר להדיא בשו׳׳ע, ואינו דומה לסומא וע׳׳ה שמיקל הרמ׳׳א הואיל וכבר נהגו, דשם הוא משום דרכי שלום, משא׳׳ כ בזה ואין כאן מנהגא, ועוד דהכא אינו עולה כלל

With that said, I would like to see the psak of Rav Moshe Sternbuch, If someone can post it please.

Yup, I see it there, very mechudesh, ask your Ruv if he agrees with that.

I've personally heard of 3 Rabbanim, tremendous Talmidei Chacamim, who raised eyebrows to this suggestion. But I know of a big Rebbe in BP who follows this psak.

Can I use this KitchenAid mixer bowl to mix and make some cheesecake, while all the ingredients will be cold?
 And then be able to use the same bowl to make challah dough a few days later which I would want to remain parve?

+1 just check any nooks visually to make sure it is really clean.

As an aside, that doesn't look like a KitchenAid but rather a Magic Mill or whatever name they were at when it was bought.

Also, DW says that a hand mixer is much better for cheese cake than this type.

Indeed never opened the 6q KitchenAid mixer yet.
  But this is a magic Mill.

You will need to be careful where the metal goes into the plastic of the spatula, the rubber track of the roller, and bottom etc. of the arm where you attach the roller.
