There's a mincha minyan that I know of that davens sfard but says tachnun like Ashkenaz. Is that a common occurrence?
yes. It is not that sfard doesn't say tachnun it is that the minhagim not to say tachnun also daven sfard.

sincevthe reason not to say by minchah is because they're davening after shkia, it's more common to say tachanun by early minchah

The real question is why doesn't sefard say tachnun

I don`t believe there`s an official psak that chasidim hold of (or that exists at all) for not saying tachanun at mincha, it`s simply since they would often daven after shkiah\tzais, and according to kabbalah tachanun after shkiah is frowned upon, so they omit it...so although technically that should mean that when they are davening before shkiah they should say it, but to sometimes say it and sometimes not can look problematic perhaps, so hence they decided to officially not say it..  ???

There does not seem to be a sourced based reason to skip tachanun if youd say it well before shikah.

yes. It is not that sfard doesn't say tachnun it is that the minhagim not to say tachnun also daven sfard.

Do you have a source that actually states that as an official minhag?

Probably basex on the fact that most Ashkenazi communities aceepted the Psak later codified by MB to finish mincha before shkiah, while others are noheg go say it through bein hashemashos.

I didn't explain myself clearly. I was asking about the nusach. The shliach tzibur davens nusach sfard but when it comes to tachnun he davens nusach Ashkenaz (they don't say the ashamnu...).

BTW This minyan is early afternoon

Is there a minimum of people needed to answer amen by kaddish ? For example, if there’s 10 people present is it okay for 9 to say kaddish & 1 to answer amen ?

ARE YOU SERIOUS?!  Do you think it's just a din that whenever it's on the source it's a shinui? the alef bais of shinui is that it's an awkward unnatural way of accomplishing the melochah which is the case is the shaaray tshuva's situation where you have to hold the cloth over the spout instead of the normal way of letting the cloth rest on the cup. Here, on the contrary it makes it easier by having the mesanenes screwed onto the faucet instead of being suspended. The fact that it is the normal way to get water out in no way precludes it from being the normal way to filter water. It was set up that way on purpose so that you can accomplish two goals at once. The only reason I continue to argue is that no one should chas v'shalom rely on your heterim without asking a competent posek!
So apparently, use of the thumb is needed here, but that's not doable on an online blog ;)
But in case you're so afraid I'm matir isuray d'oraisa mamesh, here you go.
This is the psak (and the reasoning) I got from rov.

Do pretzels (like Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps) need to be pas yisroel?
Isn't pas yisroel only for 'roi l'shulchan melachim' and pretzels aren't a formal food?

Shulchan melochim is for bishul yisroel and something which requires bishul yiroel but is not becomes assur medirabonon according to everyone (as a practical matter).

Pas yisroel has heterim in general but applies to all bread and bread-like (most mezonos) items.

Pas Yisroel is a Chumra according to almost everyone for professionally baked goods. Bishul Yisroel is a Halacha dirabanan. The scope of each are different.

According to Rav Asher Weiss Shlit”a, any snack food doesn’t need to be bishul/Pas Yisroel since snacks aren’t Oleh Al Shulchan Meluchum.

It’s my understanding that there are those who allow? Shaking hands of opposite gender especially in a business setting because of no chiba etc. anyone come across and can share a source? From what I’ve seen in IG”M , he clearly negates this hetter.
