      1) Stafford Grants
      2) Enter "On the Lot"

      1) Anyone who has a student Stafford Grant; you must
      refinance/lock in your loan rate or consolidate your
      loans by the end of JUNE. Come JULY 1, Gov't loans to
      students are going up between 2-4% which could result
      in your owing a whopping 5,000 more per year. I heard
      a report about this on KQED and thought I'd pass it
      on. Don't delay, interest on loans goes up in 3
      weeks.

      2)ASPIRING FILMMAKERS CAN BEGIN THEIR JOURNEY TO
      HOLLYWOOD; ONLINE VIDEO SUBMISSIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED
      FOR FOX'S NEW UNSCRIPTED COMPETITION SERIES "ON THE
      LOT"

      Series Executive-Produced by Mark Burnett and Steven
      Spielberg

      Aspiring filmmakers can take the first step toward
      fulfilling their dreams of becoming a Hollywood
      director by taking part in FOX's new reality
      competition series ON THE LOT. Video submissions and
      application forms are now being accepted at
      www.thelot.com. Applicants must submit a self-directed
      short film, up to five minutes in length, that may be
      shown on the website on a future date.

      ON THE LOT, executive-produced by Mark Burnett and
      Steven Spielberg, will give aspiring filmmakers from
      around the world the chance to earn a $1-million
      development deal at DreamWorks. Airing next spring on
      FOX, this unscripted series will feature a cast of 16
      undiscovered filmmakers who will compete to win the
      support of the show=92s viewers, as their fate will be
      decided by a weekly audience vote.

      The competition will air over two nights weekly, with
      a one-hour "Film Premiere" episode, followed the next
      night by a half-hour "Box Office" results show. After
      a global search, applicants will be winnowed to a
      group of 16 talented filmmakers. These finalists will
      be brought to Hollywood, where they will be divided
      into teams and begin the journey toward their "big
      break." Every week, the hopeful filmmakers will
      produce short films from a chosen genre, running the
      gamut from comedies to thrillers, personal dramas to
      romance, sci-fi to horror. They'll have access to the
      best resources the industry has to offer --
      professional writers, cast and crew, and maybe even
      Hollywood celebrities. After the teams have battled
      time frames, budgets and all the usual chaos that goes
      along with filmmaking, their films will debut and be
      critiqued in front of a live audience during the "Film
      Premiere" episode. Judges will include a high-ranking
      motion picture executive, a prominent film critic and
      a succession of well-respected guests, such as
      directors who are experts in the week=92s featured
      genre. But the filmmakers ultimately will be judged by
      the harshest critics of all -- the public. It will be
      FOX viewers whose votes determine which film should be
      left on the cutting-room floor. On the next night's
      "Box Office" results show, the director whose feature
      garners the fewest votes will be sent home. The
      competition continues and directors are eliminated
      until only the most talented filmmaker is anointed the
      winner and heads to DreamWorks' ON THE LOT.

      The application deadline is September 1, 2006. Please
      visit www.thelot.com for more information.
