Of top quarterfinals barcelona

(CNN) — It was honors even when the opening legs of this years Champions League quarterfinals took place on Tuesday.
The games between Manchester United and Bayern Munich, and Barcelonas all-Spanish duel with Atletico Madrid, both ended 1-1.
In England, the 2012-13 league winners opened the scoring through Nemanja Vidic only for Bastian Schweinsteiger, who was sent off late on, to draw the defending champions level.

In Barcelona, the four-time European champions trailed to a stunning Diego strike before Brazils Neymar leveled with 19 minutes left to play.
Little fancied before the match, Manchester United may well be the happiest of the sides after surviving a first-half onslaught before taking the lead through Vidics outstanding header after 58 minutes.

Despite being on the back foot for much of the first hour, the home side could have taken the lead even earlier only for Danny Welbeck to waste a glorious opening late in the first half.
As Manchester United reveled in their unexpected lead, Bayern hit back through Schweinsteiger who lashed home at the end of a sweeping Bayern move.
The midfielder will miss the second leg following his second yellow card, while Javi Martinez also picked up a booking that rules him out of next Wednesdays match in Germany.
Weve given ourselves a great chance (to go through) said United coach David Moyes. There was a real determination tonight to make sure we did well.
Missing the injured Robin van Persie and with Juan Mata cup-tied, United made light of recent disappointments as they delivered one of their most impressive performances of the season.
However, they must score next week in Munich — where the hosts are bidding for a third Champions League final in four years — to avoid going out on away goals.
Bayern enjoyed nearly 75% of possession at Old Trafford, where the visitors felt Antonio Valencia could also have earned a second yellow card following an untidy challenge on Jerome Boateng.
Manchester United have a very good team, said Bayern winger Arjen Robben. I didnt like the atmosphere before the game with everybody saying we would win easily – that is not how football works.
Missing Schweinsteiger and Martinez is a big blow, but Dante is coming back into the team next week.
Read: Messi and Barcelona keep pace with Atletico
In Barcelona, Atletico Madrid showed the qualities that have taken them to the top of La Liga as they ground out their fourth draw of the season against Gerardo Martinos side.
An early replacement for star striker Diego Costa, who had been an injury doubt before the game and limped off with a hamstring problem after 30 minutes, namesake Diego opened the scoring with a sensational strike after 56 minutes.
But just like Manchester United, Atleticos lead was short llived as Barca hit back from Neymar following an exquisite pass from Andres Iniesta.
Barcelona will be without defender Gerard Pique for the second leg, as well as the Copa del Rey final against Real Madrid on 19 April, after suffering a hairline fracture in his right hip, the club said.
The Spanish international is expected to be out for four weeks after falling awkwardly in the opening stages of the match, with Pique going off after just 12 minutes.
I am full of pride in the way in which we played. If we continue like this, there are chances for success, Martino told the website of European football body UEFA.
After [Atléticos] goal you saw the best of Barcelona. We played as a team and added a lot of intensity. The tie is finely balanced.
In their four games this season, with Tuesdays clash being their maiden meeting in Europe, Barca and Atletico have registered two goalless and two 1-1 draws.
The visitors protected their unbeaten record in this years competition, even though coach Diego Simeone was taking his side into one of its fiercest tests.
We have a team with huge heart and it made me so happy to be able to compete against these opponents, Atletico boss Simeone told UEFA.com. The Vicente Calderón will be bursting with atmosphere (in the return leg).
The two teams lead La Liga, with Atletico just a point above their illustrious opponents — with Real Madrid two further points behind.
The return legs of both games take place on April 9.
On Wednesday, the remaining quarterfinals begin as Paris Saint-German host Chelsea while Real Madrid entertain Borussia Dortmund.

To least state suspended

(CNN) — Though Robert H. Richards IV was convicted of rape, the wealthy heir to the du Pont family fortune was spared prison by a Delaware court in 2009 because he would not fare well behind bars, according to court documents CNN obtained Tuesday.
Richards is a great-grandson of the chemical magnate Irenee du Pont.
He received an eight-year prison sentence in 2009 for raping his toddler daughter, but the sentencing order signed by a Delaware judge said defendant will not fare well in prison and the eight years were suspended.
Richards was placed on eight years probation and ordered to get treatment and register as a sex offender, the documents show. He was also prohibited from having contact with children under 16, including his own children.
The documents were never sealed, yet the ruling managed to go unnoticed until March, when Richards former wife, Tracy Richards, filed a lawsuit in Delaware Superior Court on behalf of their children alleging personal injuries arising from the childhood sexual abuse. The 11-page suit alleges that not only was their daughter abused, but Richards abused their son, too. The suit seeks unspecified monetary damages.
While he was convicted of raping his daughter, Richards has never been charged with sexually molesting his son, according to Jason Miller, a spokesman for the Delaware attorney generals office.
CNN tried repeatedly to reach Richards and Eugene Maurer, the attorney who represented him in 2009. Maurer is no longer representing Richards, his assistant told CNN on Wednesday. CNN asked if he had a comment; he has not offered one.
Attorney John C. Balaguer is representing Richards in the civil case, his assistant told CNN. Balaguer has not returned e-mails or voice mail messages CNN has left for him.
This week, after news of Richards 2009 case came to light, many took to Twitter to criticize the judge in the case, saying that it echoed a recent Texas case in which a wealthy teenager driving drunk killed four people but received no jail time. Ethan Couch was sentenced last year to 10 years probation.
A witness in Couchs case claimed the teenager was a victim of affluenza — the product of wealthy, privileged parents who never set limits for the boy.

Delawares Judicial Code of Conduct prohibits Judge Jan R. Jurden from discussing the 2009 ruling with reporters, court spokeswoman Amy Quinlan told CNN.
But at least one member of the Delaware legal community came to Jurdens defense Tuesday.
Its wrong to attribute (the defendant would not fare well comment) to Judge Jurden, said Richard Kirk, a lawyer who is chairman of a Delaware State Bar Association committee that he says steps up to respond when judges are criticized and unable to speak for themselves.
Kirk says the argument that Richards would not do well in prison could have been the recommendation of probation or parole officers. However, he said, common sense suggests that it came from defense counsel.
As for the prosecutors side, the attorney generals spokesman gave CNN a written statement.
Cases of child sexual abuse are extremely complicated and difficult, it read. The objective is to secure justice in every case to the best of its ability given the unique facts and circumstances presented in each case — sometimes that results in a resolution that is less than what prosecutors would want, the statement read.
In this particular case, the facts and circumstances made it unlikely that a conviction could be secured at trial. …This resolution protected the victim and imposed conditions that would make it less likely the defendant could harm others.

Ebola are to pain

(CNN) — An outbreak of Ebola hemorrhagic fever in West Africa has spread to Guineas capital and beyond its borders in an unprecedented epidemic, a leading aid agency reported Monday.
Ebola virus spreads to Guinea capital
Man tested for Ebola after trip to Africa
A total of 122 patients are suspected of contracting Ebola and 78 have died, Doctors Without Borders said. Most victims have been in Guinea, but the World Health Organization reported Sunday that two deaths in Sierra Leone and one in Liberia are suspected to have been caused by the Ebola virus.
Cases have been identified in three provinces in Guinea near the borders and in Conakry, its coastal capital, said Mariano Lugli, the Doctors Without Borders coordinator there.
We are facing an epidemic of a magnitude never before seen in terms of the distribution of cases in the country, Lugli said in a statement issued by the organization. Previous outbreaks were much more geographically contained and involved more remote locations, he said.
Guinea: Ebola virus spreading fast
This geographical spread is worrisome, because it will greatly complicate the tasks of the organizations working to control the epidemic, Lugli said.
The organization, also known by its French name Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) describes Ebola as one of the worlds most deadly diseases. It spreads in the blood and shuts down the immune system, causing high fever, headache and muscle pain.
It is rare but creates panic, because there is no cure and its fatal in up to 90% of cases, according to MSF. The variant seen in the Guinea outbreak is the so-called Zaire strain, which Lugli called the most aggressive and deadly.

lasers bought instrument technology

Editors note: Art of Movement is CNNs monthly show exploring the latest innovations in art, culture, science and technology.
(CNN) — Quick math question: What has 78 fingers, 22 arms, and no brain?
Answer: Z-Machines, the robot band with a surprisingly human sound.
Listen to this three-piece with your eyes closed and it could be any group of musicians plucking a guitar, twinkling on an electric keyboard, or beating a drum.
Sure, theres a synthesized quality to the music — which sweeps from orchestral to experimental rock — but what band doesnt get a little help from computers these days?
Open your eyes and youll find something very different indeed.
For starters, the guitarist is a humanoid looming two-meters-tall, with 78 fingers sweeping across the glowing instrument strapped to its torso.
The rocking robot — called March — bangs its impressive mane of multi-colored cables in time to the music, albeit a little jerkily.
Seated a little behind is Ashura, the drummer with 22 arms extending like a futuristic octopus and playing four times faster than any human ever could.
And then theres Cosmo, perhaps the most alien band member of all, a keyboardist with green lasers hitting each key with pinpoint accuracy.
Can these robots play music that is emotionally engaging?
Tom Jenkins
The footage of the robot performer is almost like watching a broken human, with a skeleton of steel, and oil for blood, said Tom Jenkinson, better known as British recording artist Squarepusher, who composed the music for the mechanical bands new EP.
Using robots has this eerie narrative associated with it — the twilight area between human and machine. Its just a box of tricks, but it still haunts us because we see it as an impression of ourselves.
Big in Japan
Created by engineers at the University of Tokyo, the robot band uses around 300 kilowatts of electricity, which designer Kenjiro Matsuo admitted: Is a big amount of power.
We just bought a power board which has a switch — many people can try to make this kind of robot in their house now.

Soul music?
Now the machine musicians are set to release a five-track album, with the first single Sad Robot Goes Funny, a more melancholy tune than you might expect from a band without hearts.
Can these robots play music that is emotionally engaging? asked Jenkinson, who composed the song and has experimented with electronic music in a career spanning two decades.
Its a fascinating question, and one that Ive tried to explore in this project. Ill let people make up their own minds.
So how do you create music for a machine with 78 fingers, which can hit a note every eight milliseconds?
Its just another way of making sound, but in this case whats interesting is the aesthetics of the instrument, said Jenkinson.
Are you ready to rock? Z-Machines in action.Getty Images
Just like when youre writing music for a human, there are certain possibilities and certain limits. The robot guitarist for example, can play much faster than a human ever could, but there is no amplification control.
Electronic evolution
If you imagine that this is the start of a robot revolution, never fear, weve still got a fair way to go before people tire of flesh and blood performers, said Jenkins.
Is the performance going to be less compelling because its robots? he asked.
For me, part of the appeal has to do with hearing a familiar instrument being played in an unfamiliar fashion.
And behind every robot musician, is a human being bringing it to life.
