Jefferson County CO – District R-1 Recall

It is clear to me that there is desperation in the language used to oust the duly elected slate of conservative board members in Jefferson County. I Vote to retain them and furthermore wrote in as replacements should it succeed: Choice And Competition.

Additionally, I voted to put in alternates to the existing minority. Johnson and Merritts get my vote.

I agree with the bottom 2% of the worst teachers to not get raises. Sorry, some measure of their worth is the best we have. Our children are too important to keep dead weight around.

Thin film vs glass/silicon photovoltaic

Learning a little about the difference between silicon/glass  vs polymer based photovoltaic systems.

Even though slightly less efficient (for now), because of the flexibility and durability there are more applications possible so therefore more of a market for them.

Ascent Solar in Colorado has opened a thin polymer production plant in July of 2010.

Hope they outdo the efficiency of glass/silicon soon.  The field has needed increased competition and different ideas.
