 $2$-Clean Rings A ring $R$ is said to be $n$-clean if every element can be written as a sum of an idempotent and $n$ units. The class of these rings contains clean rings and $n$-good rings in which each element is a sum of $n$ units. In this paper, we show that for any ring $R$, the endomorphism ring of a free $R$-module of rank at least 2 is $2$-clean and that the ring $B(R)$ of all $\omega\times \omega$ row and column-finite matrices over any ring $R$ is $2$-clean. Finally, the group ring $RC_{n}$ is considered where $R$ is a local ring.

 Endomorphisms That Are the Sum of a Unit and a Root of a Fixed Polynomial If $C=C(R)$ denotes the center of a ring $R$ and $g(x)$ is a polynomial in C[x]$, Camillo and Sim\'{o}n called a ring$g(x)$-clean if every element is the sum of a unit and a root of$g(x)$. If$V$is a vector space of countable dimension over a division ring$D,$they showed that$\end {}_{D}V$is$g(x)$-clean provided that$g(x)$has two roots in$C(D)$. If$g(x)=x-x^{2}$this shows that$\end {}_{D}V$is clean, a result of Nicholson and Varadarajan. In this paper we remove the countable condition, and in fact prove that$\Mend {}_{R}M$is$g(x)$-clean for any semisimple module$M$over an arbitrary ring$R$provided that$g(x)\in (x-a)(x-b)C[x]$where$a,b\in C$and both$b$and$b-a$are units in$R\$.
