Answers to questions
How does this

(b) According to Rav Ashi on the other hand, the entire Mishnah goes like
Rebbi Akiva. Bearing in mind that we just extrapolated from 'Kol ha'Basar
Asur Levashel be'Chalav', 'Ha Of Asur mi'd'Oraysa', how can he do that? How
does he interpret 'Asur' in our Mishnah?
(a) How does Rav Yosef extrapolate from our Mishnah 've'Asur Laha'alos im
ha'Gevinah al ha'Shulchan' that eating Basar Of be'Chalav must be an Isur

la'Aretz Ne'echeles im ha'Zar al ha'Shulchan'?

but not regarding the equivalent case by animal meat and cheese?
