Oh shit I forgot sell your eggs

By Michelle Nichols and Angela Moore

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Drawn by payments of up to $10,000, an increasing number of women are offering to sell their eggs at U.S. fertility clinics as a way to make money amid the financial crisis.

Nicole Hodges, a 23-year-old actress in New York City who has been out of work since November, says she has decided to sell her eggs because she desperately needs cash.

"I'm still paying off college. I have credit card bills and, you know, rent in New York is so expensive," Hodges, who has been accepted as donor and is waiting to be chosen by a couple, told Reuters Television.

California Drought

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on Friday declared a state emergency due to drought and said he would consider mandatory water rationing in the face of nearly $3 billion in economic losses from below-normal rainfall this year.

As many as 95,000 agricultural jobs will be lost, communities will be devastated and some growers in the most economically productive farm state simply are not able to plant, state officials said, calling the current drought the most expensive ever.

Schwarzenegger, eager to build controversial dams as well as more widely backed water recycling programs, called on cities to cut back water use or face the first ever mandatory state restrictions as soon as the end of the month.

"California faces its third consecutive year of drought and we must prepare for the worst -- a fourth, fifth or even sixth year of drought," Schwarzenegger said in a statement, adding that recent storms were not enough to save the state.

He called on urban water users to cut consumption by 20 percent and state agencies to implement a water reduction plan. Meanwhile, the state of emergency will let planners fast-track some infrastructure building.

Legislators have also revived a $10 billion bond package to build new dams, fund conservation programs and build plants to recycle waste water and recharge aquifers.

"There is a bit of a perfect storm, pardon the pun, developing here," Republican state Senator Dave Cogdill told Reuters after introducing one of the new bond packages. "I hope the attitude toward surface storage, the larger projects, has changed."

The state water department will report on conservation progress by the end of March, and if the situation has not sufficiently improved, water rationing and mandatory cuts in water use could be instituted, the governor said.

California produces more than half the nation's fruits, vegetables and nuts, and farmers in recent weeks have been staggered by reports that the main federal source of irrigation water will go dry this year and the top state water project will not fulfill more than 15 percent of requested water.

The Central Valley, a fertile but arid region stretching some 500 miles from Bakersfield to Redding, is the agricultural heartland of California, which ranks as the nation's No. 1 farm state in terms of the value of crops produced -- more than $36 billion a year.

Concern about California's tight water supply is on the upswing at the same time as officials in the state capital of Sacramento rally behind the idea of creating jobs with public works spending. Unemployment in the most populous state rose to double digits -- 10.1 percent -- in January.

Water planners and environmentalists are also broadly in agreement that climate change is creating a more erratic climate that could lengthen dry spells.

"We're going to have droughts. That's a fact of life. They may be worse in the future," state water chief Lester Snow told reporters on a conference call.

The Roots X D'Angelo New Album

While The Roots can now count on their new gig as Jimmy Fallon’s house band [click to read] to pay the bills, their love for music is still as strong as ever. In a recent interview with weeklydig.com, ?uestlove touched on his work with D’Angelo, as well as the next Roots project.
What was once seen as a shelved project, D’Angelo has plans to release his follow-up to 2000’s Voodoo this year. ?uest, who has worked side by side with the R&B singer on several past projects, will also make his mark on D’Angelo’s new disc.
“The last I touched this record was in 2004, and that was when he was going all the way rock," ?uestlove said. “However, I am to believe at least in our conversations that he did 100 percent just actually a clean slate...I'm one of the last elements to be added. Which basically means he's at least more than halfway done, which in D'Angelo speak is a miracle.”
Settling down for “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” The Roots will still do one-off gigs on the weekends to keep their live performances fresh. Not only that, but they are reportedly already getting material together for their next album.
“We started our 11th [album], I'll say three weeks ago, before we came over [to South Korea],” ?uestlove explained. Continuing, he added

WHERE IS THE MOON?

The moon is in Capricorn
The Capricorn Moon keeps us busy and goal-oriented for another day, and a Mercury Uranus aspect in the early morning hours gets our minds fired up in new and creative ways. That seems to promise a very productive day. Mercury and Uranus are always important together, even if the aspect they make is a minor one, in this case a semisquare. A semisquare is halfway between a semisextile and a sextile, marking the midway between the point where real contact is made and growth begins, and the point where it all becomes creative and starts to flourish

The Return of DEATH

In 1975, Death, the trio of Hackney brothers from Detroit, recorded an album. Predating Bad Brains by about half a decade, Death were an all black punk group shredding up north. In the band's lifespan they were able to release one 45, for "Politicians in My Eyes," before breaking up and essentially being lost to history (and insanely rich and reckless record collectors) until a family member found the tapes in an attic and Drag City decided to release the album, ...For the World to See. The album is out February 17th and this is the first single.
