Situated on a sloping triangular site facing the sea, the house is conceived as a series of parallel adjoining rooms. They are created by retaining walls, a common feature in the surrounding Mediterranean landscape.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosEach room sits at a different elevation following the topography and contains a dedicated program. Access to the entry volume is located at the highest level of the site. A stair makes the slope flow into the house. This entry condition constitutes the first interior experience of the house, that of a viewing apparatus onto the sea.Save this picture!Ground floor planThe public spaces of the house are located in the center, master bedroom and guestrooms are on either side. Each space is focused on a large opening to the south, contemplating the sea. This is complemented by a smaller window to the north, looking towards the slope. These openings also provide efficient cross ventilation for each room.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosThe volumes are in shear, a condition that ensures that each outdoor terrace has privacy even if the volumes are adjoining; there are no views from each terrace to the next.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosSliding doors through the double walls mark the passage from one space to the next. The notion of a “cut” through the solid walls is emphasized by the grey marble of the thresholds. Walls are constructed from solid concrete and provide large thermal mass.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosSave this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosThe east and west facades that face the road and the neighboring buildings have no openings. They protect the interior from the heat of the sun. This creates a barely visible configuration of spaces conveying privacy in its interiors but with maximum views towards the sea.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosIn the interior at adjoining walls double up: built-in furniture and storage spaces; within them are desks, bathroom sink, plate dresser, artwork display. These built-in furniture are custom designed and are arranged along the centerline of the plan creating a dynamic sequence.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosThe concept of “aggregate” was a generator of form and selection of materials. Aggregation of volumes, aggregate in the raw concrete walls, in the terrazzo floor, roofs filled with gravel and plants.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosMaterials were used that are very familiar in older Greek residential interiors such as terrazzo floors, which is present throughout the house inside and outside as well as marble and plaster render, but used in spaces, forms and combinations that are not so familiar.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosProject gallerySee allShow lessSnøhetta Envisions Riverwalk Masterplan on Industrial Site at Oregon’s Willamette FallsArchitecture NewsWhat Is It Like to Work at MVRDV?

Facebook removes 220 ‘boogaloo’-related accounts from its platform

first_imgwachiwit/iStockBY LUKE BARR and CATHERINE THORBECKE, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — Facebook announced the removal of 220 accounts, 28 pages and 106 groups that are associated with the little-known but emerging movement called “boogaloo.”The company also said they removed 95 Instagram accounts connected to the group. Instagram is owned by Facebook.Federal court documents define boogaloo as a “term used by extremists to signify a coming civil war and/or fall of civilization.”“For months, we have removed boogaloo content when there is a clear connection to violence or a credible threat to public safety, and today’s designation will mean we remove more content going forward, including Facebook Groups and Pages,” according to the social media company. “This violent network is banned from having a presence on our platform and we will remove content praising, supporting or representing it.”In the past month, three suspected boogaloo-movement followers allegedly tried to fire bomb a Black Lives Matter protest in Las Vegas and in Oakland, California, a Federal Protective Services contract officer and Santa Cruz Sheriff’s sergeant were killed and a suspected boogaloo movement follower was charged.“These acts of real-world violence and our investigations into them are what led us to identify and designate this distinct network,” the company said in a statement.Facebook said the movement started as early as 2012 and they’ve been tracking it since.Experts told ABC News, that there is not a single ideology for boogaloo members, but that the one common thread is that they are anti-government.“I don’t think there’s a central core belief either in the movement. There’s a range of different grievances or different potential individuals who they believe are legitimate targets,” said Javed Ali, a former counterterrorism official and visiting professor at the University of Michigan.Facebook said that they have concluded that some people who took part in the January 2020 gun rights rally in Richmond, Virginia, “wore the outfit now typical for boogaloo adherents and we have since tracked the movement’s expansion as participants engage at various protests and rallies across the country.”“We will continue to study new trends, including the language and symbols this network shares online so we can take the necessary steps to keep those who proclaim a violent mission off our platform,” the company said.The move comes as the company faces mounting pressure to respond to hate on its platforms and amid a growing ad boycott that started at the urging of the NAACP and other civil rights organizations.In a matter of weeks, the Facebook ad boycott has grown from just a handful of companies to include multinational conglomerate Unilever, telecom giant Verizon and coffeehouse chain Starbucks.Organizers of the ad boycott say the social media giant does not do enough to combat hate, violence and racism on its platforms. Facebook responded with a series of policy updates, but late last week, organizers with the Stop Hate for Profit Coalition said the moves were insufficient in combatting hate — especially within groups and posts.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

The well became operational in October 2019.Last year, Neptune Energy subsidiary, Neptune Energy East Sepinggan, acquired 20% interest in the East Sepinggan area production sharing contract (PSC) located offshore Indonesia from Italian oil and gas company Eni.With the completion of the sale, Eni will continue to serve as the operator of the East Sepinggan area with 65% interest.The remaining stakes of 15% and 20% are held by PT Pertamina Hulu Energi East Sepinggan and Neptune Energy East Sepinggan, respectively.
