Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

We learn that one should not carry a pail above the trough for concern that he may be tempted to repair it and transfer the pail (which he had placed in Reshus Harabim – which is an issur derabanan) to Reshus Hayachis (issur min hatoah).  Why is this not considered a double gezeira (gezeira legzeira) since it involves a two step process?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Gemara advises one to instruct his household gently ‘so that they accept from him’.  The Rosh cites the Gemara (Gittin 6b) that a person should never instill excessive fear in his home.  This reason would indeed seem a sufficient basis for our Gemara as well; why does the Gemara provide the reason of ‘acceptance’ instead?
