Jumo

The social networking ideas that Chris Hughes and his former college roomate, Mark Zuckerberg worked on worked on at Harvard have become a revolutionary platform remaking communications and business around the globe.

Now Hughes, who is based in New York, has launched the Beta version of Jumo, a social network that hopes to connect individuals working for global change. He described his vision for Jumo on the company blog.

I have a problem: it’s hard to find smart people doing meaningful work on the issues I care about. I’m sure they’re out there, but I can’t find them.

HOW-TO
5 Avocado Recipes

Avocado is a creamy, heart-healthy choice for salads, sandwiches and the ever-popular Mexican dip guacamole – but have you ever thought about having this luscious green fruit for dessert? Avocado’s natural smooth texture and mild taste makes it a perfect match for your meal’s final course. From smoothies to pudding and more, this fruit can be used to create uber-tasty and protein-packed concoctions for dessert or a sweet afternoon snack any time of year.

Start each recipe with ripe avocados that give to the touch but are not mushy. Wash, peel and pit each one so that you’re only left with the yellow-green flesh from the inside before you proceed with each recipe. Don’t forget to buy organic avocadosand other ingredients whenever you can.

Add leather-like hints to your look by pairing them with summery favorites to transition your closet to fall without breaking the bank.

Temper sparkly separates with relaxed knits. Pair your favorite metallic mini with a comfy, chunky knit for a daytime-approved look that can take you well into the evening hours.

Play with texture by mixing together unexpected combinations such as tweed, silk, and wool to give your look depth and intrigue.

Try an oversize daytime clutch instead of your standard satchel for weekend jaunts and mid-week work meetings.

Mix in sheer, lightweight layers to your look to balance fall’s heavier wares.

ESQUIRE
Mila Kunis Named Sexiest Woman Alive

Mila Kunis may be off the market but she was still named Esquire’s “Sexiest Woman Alive.”

Certainly aided by her hot lady love scene with Natalie Portman in Black Swan, on-camera chemistry with Justin Timberlake, coupled with “that girl” personality in Friends With Benefits, and understanding GF attitude a la Ted, Kunis has no-doubt held many-a-men’s attention, even dream-girl appeal for quite sometime now.

Currently linked to former That ‘70s Show co-star, Ashton Kutcher, Kunis humbly acknowledges her new hot title by simply saying, “What I do and who I am are two different things. And, they will always be.”
