“Last class”: This action brought Rapid coach Kühbauer to the Weißglut – Bundesliga

The spectacular 3: 4 between WAC and Rapid Vienna is still a topic in Austrian football two days later. Last had Sky published a video in which you could see how WAC goalie Alexander Kofler loudly expressed his displeasure with referee Stefan Ebner (“Violent fuss in the video: WAC goalie Kofler complains about referee performance”).

“Unfortunately, people very quickly forget …”

The mood in the Lavant Valley was generally very heated. Even during the game, borderline calls could be heard on TV from the stands.

Rapid coach Didi Kühbauer was stunned by some of the statements and scenes in the game. The Burgenlander is “deeply disappointed” about the behavior of his ex-club. “I didn’t take a penalty. Unfortunately, people very quickly forget that I did a good job here and brought the club a lot of money,” Didi Kühbauer told Kronen newspaper.

One scene stuck in the mind of the former WAC coach. The battered Ullmann had voluntarily played the ball out before Wolfsbergs Novak promptly initiated an offensive action by the Carinthians: “That is left behind,” complained Kühbauer. Furthermore reports the Kronethat Kühbauer sought a conversation with WAC captain Michael Liendl after the game to talk about this action.

Contract extension? Kühbauer would be ready to talk

The rapid trainer’s contract expires in summer 2021. The current results and the development of the team clearly indicate that Rapid will probably offer the Burgenland an extension. And Kühbauer does not seem averse to an extension of his contract: “Of course I am ready to talk because this group is good for me, because this club is everything to me and because this is my club, where I always wanted to be. That I and the The coaching team put together such a good team is all the more beautiful, “emphasized Kühbauer Sky.

Rapid on the way to Norway

Didi Kühbauer is currently on the way to Norway with his protégés, where they will face Molde FK in the Europa League on Thursday. On the first day of the match the Hütteldorfer suffered a narrow defeat against Arsenal. Molde won away against Dundalk.

The art of making music go through the eyes | Innovation

There was a time when listening to music had its own ritual. Remove the disc from the case, place it on the turntable deck, arrange the needle, give the play. This sequence was simplified with the cassette first and the CD later, to die definitively with the arrival of the mp3. Digital formats, which —for the moment— have their culmination in streaming, dynamited the way to approach this experience: today we can listen to almost any song with the push of a button on the mobile, tablet or computer.

It may seem banal, but the fact of not resorting to a stereo, of not having to physically search, choose and play the album we want to listen to, changes everything. The immediacy has altered our rhythms, but also our habits. Starting with the way we consume music: if before we knew by heart the order of the songs on our favorite albums, now what they take are the playlists. Listening to music was an activity in itself; that too is being lost.

Hi-Fi teams are managing to survive this tsunami of change. Although the quality of the reproduction of the Bluetooth speakers is acceptable, purists continue to demand Hi-Fi equipment to develop all the nuances of music. As has happened for decades, although there was no alternative before.

Some of them, like the ones illustrated in this article, are authentic works of art. All a demonstration that a good design can turn a technological apparatus into the central element of the room in which it is placed. The book Hi-Fi: The history of high-end audio design, published by Phaidon, traces the history of high-fidelity equipment from the 1950s to the present day.

Brinkmann’s Balance Belt-Drive Turntable turntable went on sale in 1985 and was reissued in 2018.

The author, Gideon Schwartz, describes in the introduction to the work an image taken in 1982: that of Apple founder Steve Jobs sitting on the wooden floor of an empty room with his hi-fi equipment as the only company. A titan of design alone with her music device, focused on sound and without distractions around her. That is the effect that the totems of the analog era achieve. Those are the feelings that we are losing
