SCHOOL FUNDING — Ciattarelli wants to change New Jersey’s school funding plan. His idea may not be that new, by POLITICO’s Carly Sitrin: Republican gubernatorial candidate Jack Ciattarelli is eager to tell voters what his school funding plan isn’t. According to Ciattarelli, it’s not a fully-funded version of the current state aid formula. It’s not the flat rate former Gov. Chris Christie proposed before leaving office. It’s not Senate President Steve Sweeney’s plan to redistribute aid and it’s not exactly what Ciattarelli, a former assemblymember proposed when he ran for governor in 2017. But asked directly during a campaign event last week in Jersey City for details about his plan, Ciattarelli spoke in generalizations. “We need a new school funding formula. The current formula is nefarious, it’s arbitrary, it’s unfair, and I believe it’s unconstitutional,” he said at the event, which was billed as the roll-out of his “detailed plan to lower property taxes.”
WHAT TRENTON MADE
The announcements aren’t a surprise. Even more unsurprisingly, New Jersey Education Association, a close ally of the governor, supported the governor’s order. Republican gubernatorial candidate Jack Ciattarelli immediately hit on this, arguing that this is evidence “that powerful Trenton special interests get to play by one set of rules.”
Gov. Phil Murphy made the news official: New Jersey teachers will have to be vaccinated against coronavirus for this upcoming school year.
VACCINATIONS — Biden: Employers must require Covid vaccination, by POLITICO’s Sarah Owermohle: President Joe Biden on Monday pressed businesses and public leaders to implement vaccine mandates after the federal government issued its first full approval of a Covid-19 vaccine. The Food and Drug Administration early Monday approved Pfizer’s two-dose vaccine for people 16 and older, a step beyond the emergency-use authorization under which the shot has been available since late 2020. "I’m calling on more companies in the private sector to step up with vaccine requirements that will reach millions more people," Biden said in remarks at the White House. "If you’re a business leader, a nonprofit leader, a state or local leader, who has been waiting for full FDA approval to require vaccinations, I call on you now to do that — require it. It only makes sense to require a vaccine to stop the spread of Covid-19."
When trying to understand why chlorine improves efficiency, the main observation from previous studies was that defects – known as ‘stacking faults’ – were removed after chlorine treatment.
A new generation of modules is emerging made using a chemical compound known as cadmium telluride (CdTe) and over 25 GW has already been installed.
Research findings and the missing piece
The new paper shows that if there is enough chlorine in the grain boundaries, a cascade mechanism is triggered that structurally removes the stacking faults.
“The next steps will be to see how further improvements can be made by looking at doping the CdTe with other elements to push for >25% efficiency. Our ongoing collaboration with CREST is going to be looking also to optimise the interfaces between CdTe and the front and back contacts.
She continued: “We are very excited to have our work published in Nature Communications, which showcases our hypothesis on how chlorine is able to not only improve the efficiency of CdTe cells but also remove crucial defects.
