ATLANTA -

Who wants to a millionaire?  How about 600 times over?  The already gigantic Powerball jackpot for this Saturday night's drawing has risen again, hitting $600 million at noon on Friday—which is the highest in the history of the game.  

Georgia Lottery officials say it's the second largest jackpot in U.S. history.  The Powerball jackpot has been rolling over since April 3.  Though no one picked all six numbers correctly on Wednesday, two winners from the metro Atlanta area won $1 million each.  

Friday's Mega Millions jackpot has also soared to $190 million. The winning numbers for that jackpot were 11-15-35-43-49 with the Mega Ball 41.

If you plan to play Powerball, you've got until 10 p.m. Saturday night to get your tickets—which are $2.00 per play.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
