020 Inside Facebook’s Data Center Near the Arctic Circle

On the edge of the Arctic Circle, where the River Lule meets the Gulf of Bothnia, lies a very important building. Facebook’s newest data center – in Luleå, Sweden – is now handling live traffic from around the world. Facebook claims Luleå is likely to be one of the most efficient and sustainable data centers in the world. All the equipment inside is powered by locally generated hydro-electric energy. It is 100% renewable and they have been able to reduce the number of backup generators required at the site by more than 70%.

The Saint Laurent Paris NYC Flagship Store

saint laurent 80 greene space 02 630x472 The Saint Laurent Paris NYC Flagship Store

Saint Laurent just opened a New York flagship in SoHo today at 80 Greene Street. Under the direction of Hedi Slimane, the 4,000 square foot store features an interior concept envisioned by the mastermind himself. The interior houses the original ceiling and columns of the Greene Street Building, complemented with iconic Saint Laurent materials like black “noir soie” and white “blanc statuaire” matt finish marble. For many, marble might conjure antiquity. But Hedi Slimane has put the majestic material to thoroughly contemporary use in the new Saint Laurent Paris flagship store. Dotted throughout the store is antique furniture, personally acquired by Slimane, from early-20th-century masters — including a 1935 daybed by Jean Prouvé, metal armchairs by Jules Leleu, an oak tabouret by Pierre Legrain and a pair of Lattenstuhl chaises by Marcel Breuer — all of which speak to the heritage of the company that Yves Saint Laurent founded more than half a century ago.

” I have enjoyed a long, varied career in illustration and graphic design. I have worked in the licensed apparel industry for such companies as Umbro, Disney, Sesame Street, and Winnie the Pooh. My work won a design excellence award from Jim Henson Productions.
I was creator and writer of a line of greeting cards sold across Canada and parts of the US. I have also had my own line of apparel which sold in stores across Canada.

My fine art career has also kept me busy with shows in many galleries throughout the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. It is my desire to bring this wealth of experience to the children’s book arena as both illustrator and writer. I was born with a disability affecting my legs but I am very active enjoying golf, working out and photography. ”
