In an NBA offseason devoid of the usual LeBron James-related drama,1Even though, technically speaking, James remains unsigned! the role of free agent heel has been occupied by once and future Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan. First, ESPN reported that Jordan was going to sign with the Dallas Mavericks for more than $80 million over four years. But by Wednesday, rumors had surfaced that Jordan was having second thoughts — perhaps he wanted to return to L.A. after all, especially after Clippers officials proved their devotion by showing up at Jordan’s house and refusing to leave until he reversed his decision. Then early today, Mark Cuban’s worst fears were realized: Jordan spurned the Mavs, instead inking a four-year, $88 million max deal to stay in L.A.If Jordan wants to win a championship, he made the right choice. By far.On Wednesday, we tried to make sense of the San Antonio Spurs’ free-agency haul by running their projected Real Plus-Minus (RPM) numbers and comparing them to the rest of the league. (RPM is an advanced metric that attempts to isolate a player’s on-court contribution to his team’s success.) Now that Jordan is back in L.A., we’ve updated those numbers for his Clippers — and for the spurned Mavs. Here’s how each team’s power rating changed with Jordan’s flip-flop.Without Jordan, the Clippers were projected to be much weaker than were in the 2014-15 season.2Albeit still above-average. But by convincing him to return to Southern California, they’ll have bolstered their projection from a +2.7 team rating (the equivalent of about 47 wins) to +6.0 (or 54 wins). In other words, even though he can’t shoot free throws, Jordan is still worth quite a bit relative to his replacement. And his homecoming tosses L.A. right back into the scramble for third place in the Western Conference behind Golden State and San Antonio (along with, most likely, Oklahoma City and Houston).Oddly, for a player with such a great defensive reputation, Jordan’s return helps the Clippers’ offense most. According to offensive RPM, Jordan ranked first among all NBA centers during the 2014-15 season. He doesn’t often get as much credit as he deserves for his offensive game because his scoring numbers don’t fit the typical mold of a dominant low-post presence. But Jordan is a unique player whose offensive value isn’t easy to pin down.Jordan’s closest historical comparables are all over the place. FiveThirtyEight editor-in-chief Nate Silver and I have been tinkering with a PECOTA-style similarity system for basketball players (tentatively codenamed “CARMELO”), and it suggests that Jordan is most like Dale Davis, Joakim Noah, Samuel Dalembert, Tree Rollins, Horace Grant and James Donaldson. Legends, all. Still, none of those comps quite capture Jordan’s combination of off-the-charts shooting efficiency, a knack for drawing fouls, a great rebounding percentage, a low usage rate and a miniscule assist percentage in the same package.Jordan is a great defender, too. But the player who would have replaced him on the Clippers would probably have been passable defensively, assuming he played like a, well, replacement-level player. The bigger difference is that replacement-level NBA players tend to be horrible offensively, so Jordan’s ability to play strong defense while simultaneously not killing the offense could be the single greatest benefit that L.A. receives from his return.As for the Mavericks, they might be screwed. Even with Jordan in the mix, Dallas’s RPM projection was nowhere near those of the West’s top-tier teams — the Clippers without Jordan were projected to be about 3.5 wins better than the Mavericks with him — and now Dallas figures to be a distinctly below-average team. In contrast to the offensive utility Jordan brings L.A., his biggest advantage in Dallas would have been at the other end of the court, where he’d have shored up its shaky defense. (The Mavs are pretty good offensively with or without Jordan.)One last-ditch effort for Dallas, however, might be to return to the negotiating table with Indiana and attempt to trade for — and absorb the salary of — center Roy Hibbert. In a hypothetical world in which Dallas takes Hibbert’s contract off the Pacers’ hands for a draft pick (and free agent Amar’e Stoudemire departs), the Mavericks would essentially be a .500 team with an even better defense than they were projected to have with Jordan.Unfortunately, though, the Lakers and Pacers have already agreed on a trade that would send a second-round draft pick and cash to Indiana for Hibbert and his expiring contract. Ironically, it would take the Pacers “pulling a DeAndre Jordan” and reneging on the agreement to free up Hibbert for a potential trade to Dallas.
Amid the usual fans clamouring for him to autograph balls, programmes and tickets was a man who handed Nadal a prosthetic leg, complete with a blue trainer on the end.When he was later asked if the leg was removed specially for the star to sign, Nadal said: “[It] was already off. I don’t know if he took it off at that moment or not.”Asked if it was the “weirdest” thing he had ever been asked to sign by a fan he gave a smile and replied: “Probably not.” Not your everyday request…#Wimbledon pic.twitter.com/nWIli7inXu— Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 5, 2017 “When you’re on court, you know that every opponent is dangerous. Then don’t relax yourself when you are winning. Keep having the motivation to improve, you know. Don’t consider yourself too good. And I think this kind of stuff help me to have a longer career.” Rafael Nadal on day oneCredit:Heathcliff O’Malley Judy Murray said the man should be “ashamed” of himself and fans joined her in criticising his behaviour. The young fan, a teenager who had travelled from Ireland to watch the match, was later found by Sock’s team and the US player has invited him to watch him play later in the championships.Nadal has long been a firm favourite with Wimbledon fans, in part for his grace and humility off and on court as well as his amazing play.He gave another example of those qualities on Wednesday night, both during his match against Young and afterwards, when he was asked about his recent admission to having doubts about his ability to regain the form of his earlier years.The 31-year-old said: “It’s normal to have doubts in life. In sport it’s exactly the same, no? When you are not playing well, when I had more injuries than I would like, it’s normal to have doubts. And I did. And I tell you one thing, if I had doubts when I was winning almost every match, how can I not have doubts when I am in a bad situations, no?”Nadal, who suffered a second-round defeat to Dustin Brown in 2015 and missed last year’s tournament through injury, added: “But the doubts give you a couple of things that for me are important. Respect for every opponent, that’s important. Rafael Nadal takes a break during a practice session at The All England Lawn Tennis Club in WimbledonCredit:OLI SCARFF/AFP Wimbledon tweeted a clip of the incident, with the caption: “Not your everyday request…”Nadal signed the prosthetic leg the day after a man snatched a towel from a boy’s hands when American player Jack Sock threw it to him in the crowd. In his many years as one of the world’s greatest tennis players Rafael Nadal has grown used to bizarre requests from fans.But on Wednesday the Spanish player was asked to autograph a fan’s prosthetic leg – and even then admitted it was not the strangest thing he had ever been asked to sign.The 10-time French Open champion and two times Wimbledon winner had won his second-round match against American Donald Young 6-4, 6-2, 7-5 when he was presented with the request.

People of Earth, do not be alarmed. A robot colony may be taking over the world soon — or at least games like badminton, tennis, volleyball, and ping pong. OK, so we might be freaking out a little prematurely, but a recent video posted on Engadget shows a pair of quadrocopters basically playing badminton while floating high in the air.A quadrocopter is exactly what it sounds like: a four-rotor helicopter. The video was made by Mark Müller, Sergei Lupashin, and Raffaello D’Andrea in the Control of Distributed, Autonomous Systems lab at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ). It starts with one person throwing a ball to one autonomous quadrocopter, and the copter “throwing” it back. But things get interesting when a second quadrocopter enters the picture.The team trained a pair of their flying quadrocopters to bounce ping-pong balls between each other. They mounted the head of a tennis racket to both copters and were able to get the ball to volley between the two. The quadrocopters are even a little competitive. In the video, you will see how they dive for the ball when needed, although they don’t always make it in time. Robots make mistakes, too.According to Robots.net, the quadrocopters are based on the “Hummingbird” quadrocopter made by Ascending Technologies with new controls and custom-made electronics. The main part is a state-of-the-art Vicon motion capture system that provides the localization data to the robots, which is what makes them so precise and dynamic.ETHZ has what they call a “Flying Machine Arena,” which offers a “safe, controlled sandbox environment” for testing mobile robots. The space is huge, so it allows for testing of fast-paced motions on the ground or in the air. There’s a safety net for testing high-risk, high-speed maneuvers, too. The Flying Machine Arena also has a superb motion-capture system. There are eight cameras mounted on the ceiling above the space that provide millimeter-accuracy localization information at 200Hz or greater for any “retro-reflective markers” in the space.Read more at Engadget, Robots.net, and ETHZ.[Photo via Technabob]

It would’ve been a lot easier to swallow as a pack-in. But can you really put a price on your virtual baby?Want to learn more? Here’s everything you need to know about the Nintendo Switch. ‘Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Was Final Mission From Late Nintendo President By far the most anticipated game of the Nintendo Switch’s soft (but improving) launch lineup is open-world fantasy epic The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. But when the Switch drops on March 3 Nintendo will also release the minigame collection 1-2-Switch. We got to play four of these quirky games, like cow milking and HD rumble ball counting, back during the Switch preview event. But now videos for 18 of the game’s 28 minigames have now appeared unlisted on Nintendo’s Japanese YouTube, and they look unbelievable.Here’s a real video game in 2017 that lets you care for a tablet as if it were a crying baby.This gives me flashbacks to Babysitting Mama, a Cooking Mama spinoff for the Wii that came with a plush baby doll you stuck a Wii remote into for childrearing minigames. That remains the only video game I have ever bought ironically. But with 1-2-Switch you don’t even need the doll. I just hope you can change the race of the baby. I need to practice taking care of my niece.Baby isn’t the only newly revealed 1-2-Switch game that has us hipsters/wacky Japanese game show fans excited. The game’s wacky sense of humor and short, non-sequitur gameplay immediately reminded us of WarioWare. Their use of live-action footage of adults (along with the subtle horniness of a lot of these gestures) and awkward eye contact, makes us think Nintendo is going for the mainstream risqué party game market. And they’re not interested in the niche gamers who care about Wario (despite how great he is).Just look at some of these. Stay on target

Another fake Pokemon Go app is infecting players’ phonesYandex web browser launches The FBI is reportedly urging private sector businesses to ditch cyber security firm Kaspersky Lab.Long-held suspicions that Russian spies use the Moscow-based company as a global intelligence-gathering tool have put a strain on its relationship with the United States.Now, tensions are escalating as feds try to expunge Kaspersky products and services from various firms, according to CyberScoop, which cited “current and former senior US officials familiar with the matter.”Since early this year, the Bureau has reportedly been meeting with energy and tech companies to warn them of the threat posed by the security provider, which officials claim can not be trusted to protect America’s critical infrastructure.The FBI confirmed to Geek that it “regularly meets with” private sector organizations as part of its “outreach efforts.”“While we may discuss security concerns, we do not tell private sector organizations what business decision to make,” an agency spokesman said in a statement.“If these briefings are actually occurring, it’s extremely disappointing that a government agency would take such actions against a law-abiding and ethical company like Kaspersky Lab,” a spokeswoman said in a statement.The proclamation, emailed to Geek.com, repeatedly denies accusations of “unethical ties or affiliations with any government, including Russia,” and claims that the private firm is “caught in the middle of a geopolitical fight.”Kaspersky Lab, it said, “[is] being treated unfairly even though the company has never helped, nor will help, any government in the world with its cyber espionage or offensive cyber efforts.”CEO Eugene Kaspersky, who co-founded the provider in 1997, has even offered to meet with officials, testify before Congress, and provide source code for audit in an effort to clear his name. It seems, however, that the olive branch has been ignored.“The company simply wants the opportunity to answer any questions and assist all concerned government organizations with any investigations,” the spokeswoman said, “as Kaspersky Lab ardently believes a deeper examination of the company will confirm that these allegations are completely unfounded.”Law enforcement meetings, however, have yielded mixed results, according to CyberScoop, which suggested most energy firms have cooperated, many of them signing deals with Kaspersky’s rivals. Tech titans, meanwhile, are reportedly pushing back against the FBI’s advice.This secretive strong-arming comes amidst presidential action in July to remove Kaspersky Lab from two lists of approved vendors from which government agencies can purchase technology equipment.Editor’s Note: This story was updated on Aug. 23 with comment from the FBI.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

July 25, 2016 — The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that it expects to launch its new Overall Hospital Quality Star Rating system to report on quality of care at hospitals shortly.The Star Rating can be viewed at Hospital Compare, a consumer-oriented website that provides information on how well hospitals provide care to their patients. This information can help consumers make informed decisions about their healthcare. CMS has been posting quarterly hospital quality star ratings based on patients’ experience of care on the Hospital Compare website since April 16, 2015.The new Overall Hospital Quality Star Rating reflects comprehensive quality information about the care provided at the nation’s hospitals. The rating system, developed through a public and transparent process, takes 62 existing quality measures already reported on the Hospital Compare website and summarizes them into a unified rating of one to five stars. The rating includes quality measures for the routine care an individual receives when being treated for heart attacks and pneumonia to quality measures that focus on hospital-acquired infections, such as catheter-associated urinary tract infections. Key measures included in the Star Rating ask questions such as:How often do patients get an infection after surgery?;How long on average do patients have to wait in the emergency department before seeing a provider?;How often do patients develop complications after hip replacement surgery?;How likely are patients to get readmitted to the hospital after a heart attack?; andWill patients receive multiple computed tomography (CT) scans or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans?CMS intends to post the Overall Hospital Star Ratings for individual hospitals shortly. In preparation, the agency published some data showing the national distribution of Overall Hospital Star Ratings based on hospital characteristics. For each hospital characteristic, such as teaching status or safety net status, CMS evaluated the distribution of hospitals across the five star categories (1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 stars).CMS examined the relationship between each hospital characteristic and the national distribution of the Star Rating. For each hospital characteristic, CMS compared the number of hospitals, the mean Star Rating and the range (or the minimum and maximum Star Ratings). CMS evaluated the distribution of hospitals across the five star categories within each hospital characteristic. CMS also examined the distribution of hospital performance at the group level for each hospital characteristic using the hospitals’ performance categories (Above, Same as, Below the National Average) for each of the seven groups.The agency utilized hospital data from the July 2016 star ratings input file and defined the hospital characteristics based on the 2013 American Hospital Association (AHA) annual survey of hospital characteristics and the 2016 CMS IMPACT file, which is used for determining if a hospital is eligible to be a disproportionate share hospital.The analysis showed that all types of hospitals have both high-performing and low-performing hospitals. In other words, hospitals of all types are capable of performing well on star ratings and also have opportunities for improvement.Overall Star Rating Results based on Bed SizeHospitals of varying bed size — classified as 1-99, 100-199 and 200-or-more beds — had similar average Star Ratings. Each bed size classification included hospitals with a Star Rating ranging from 1 to 5 stars.Overall Star Rating Results based on Teaching StatusThe average Star Rating for teaching hospitals (mean = 2.87) was similar to but slightly lower than that for non-teaching hospitals (mean = 3.11). Both teaching and non-teaching status hospitals had high-performing and low-performing hospitals on the Star Ratings, ranging from 1 to 5 stars.Overall Star Rating Results based on Safety Net StatusApplying a previously accepted definition of hospital safety net status, CMS found that safety net hospitals were similar to but had a slightly lower average Star Rating (mean = 2.88) than non-safety net hospitals (mean = 3.09). Both safety net and non-safety-net hospitals had high-performing and low-performing hospitals on the Star Ratings, ranging from 1 to 5 stars.Overall Star Rating Results based on Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) Payment EligibilityCMS found a lower average Star Rating among DSH payment-eligible hospitals (mean = 2.92) in comparison to non-DSH payment-eligible hospitals (mean = 3.47). Both DSH payment-eligible and non-DSH payment-eligible hospitals groups had hospitals with Star Ratings ranging from 1 to 5 stars.Overall Star Rating Results based on Critical Access Hospital (CAH) StatusCMS found a higher average Star Rating among CAHs (mean = 3.31) in comparison to the average Star Rating among non-CAHs (mean = 2.99). The range of among CAHs was more narrowly distributed, from 2 to 4 stars, while the range of Star Ratings among non-CAHs was more broadly distributed, from 1 to 5 stars.For more information: www.cms.gov FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | August 06, 2019 Canon Medical Introduces Encore Orian MR Upgrade Program Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. is helping to provide low-cost patient care solutions for its customers with the launch… read more Siemens Go.Top CT scanner at SCCT19Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:05Loaded: 15.14%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:05 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

THEO PANAYIDES meets a politician who is full of self-belief and quiet persistence who has contributed much to cancer care on the island, not least because she has battled it three times herselfDoes experience make the person, or the person make the experience? Is it true to say that Stella Kyriakidou has been dealt quite a tough hand by life, or is her experience – as she staunchly insists – nothing unusual, and no worse than others’? Stella is admittedly a high achiever – not just an MP (with Disy) since 2006 and chair of the House human rights committee but also, among other things, president of Europa Donna Cyprus from 2000 to 2015, recipient of various ‘Woman of the Year’ awards, and, since a couple of weeks ago, the first Cypriot president of PACE, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. Yes – but she’s also a three-time cancer survivor, having lived with the disease (in one form or another) since she was a child.“My journey began in 1968, when breast cancer first came into our lives.” That’s from a Facebook post she wrote on October 1, to mark the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. (The post has been liked by some 2,300 people, and shared 387 times.) “The truth,” she goes on, “is that my acquaintance with this disease began very early, at the dawn of my teenage years, when my mother was diagnosed at the age of 38. Those 10 years of her journey, before she passed away at 48, were also crucial for me, and my own journey with cancer.” Stella goes on to recount how she herself was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1996, just before her 40th birthday (she’s now 61), and how her initial feelings of denial upon discovering the tell-tale lump – “that I’d wake up in the morning and it would be gone” – were muddied by some “small inner voice” which claimed to have known it was coming. “I expected it,” she writes. It had happened to her mum, so she knew it would happen to her.Actually, she was wrong about that: only seven to eight per cent of breast cancers are genetic or hereditary. Still, the fact that she found herself within that minority – or, alternatively, that her own diagnosis was just a tragic coincidence – doesn’t make it any easier to bear, especially given that she fell ill again a few years later, and again (this time with a leg sarcoma) in 2013. Does she feel that she’s had bad luck, at the very least?“No,” she replies after a short pause.No?“I think it’s part of life. Nobody guaranteed us that life would be without hurdles and obstacles, and everybody has their own problems, their own difficulties to deal with. Mine have been these.”Fine, I persist – but surely they’ve been rather more serious than the average?“You know,” she muses, “they say sometimes that if you put everybody’s problems in a pile in front of you, everybody would choose to take back their own. I don’t know what’s going on in somebody else’s life, maybe their problems are much more difficult to deal with than my own. So I can’t say that. I really don’t think – I really –” she raises her voice, drowning me out as I try to protest, “I really don’t believe that. At all.”I guess people just get used to their own lives, I offer, thinking of her analogy of the pile of problems and everyone choosing to stick with their own.“No, I don’t think it’s like that,” says Stella. She pauses, as if looking to put this subject to rest once and for all. “You know, I really am like I am,” she says simply. “Because I think you’re trying to guide it in a way that – I should be feeling sorry for myself, or I should be feeling angry, or I’m used to my own life. It’s not like that.“I’m very aware of my situation. I know to live with my disease, and I get on with my life and I’m generally a very positive person. And it’s as simple as that. I don’t blame anyone else, I don’t feel that I have more on my plate than I should have, and I think that a lot of people have a lot worse to deal with in their lives. So in that sense I’m very lucky, in many ways. And this is who I am. Maybe it’s not what people expect, but this is who I am.”Translation: experience doesn’t make the person – the person makes the experience, choosing to shape it through their own particular worldview. “It’s not something I do on purpose,” she admits later, apropos of her lifelong tendency to activism. “It’s something I just am.” It’s not like she treats cancer lightly: she’s had periods of depression, and her most recent bout was especially stressful – because sarcoma was something new and unfamiliar, because it required major surgery, and because it came after a year of wrong diagnoses including an unnecessary knee operation. Her weapons, however, include being determinedly open about the disease, being a scientific person in general, and being active (rather than passive) by nature. “Once I knew what I was faced with, I was very matter-of-fact,” she recalls of her first diagnosis in 1996. “I thought ‘OK, you don’t have many choices’. At the time I had two very young children. ‘You have one choice: you have to deal with this and get well. Because you have a family’.”Her two sons are in their 30s now, the younger a consultant in London while the elder is in Spain, working as a lawyer and married to an Argentine. Stella and her husband Kikis also have two grandchildren – and she suddenly tells me of her grandson Philippos, who was born extremely premature and spent two and a half months in intensive care (she calls his survival a “miracle”). I wonder for a moment why she’s telling me this story – she’s not the type to volunteer much personal information – but this, it turns out, isn’t the end of the story: Philippos’ birth inspired her and others to form an association called ‘The Miracle Babies’ who are currently working “to fund and build a new unit for premature babies at Makarios hospital”, indeed they’ve already raised some €320,000. That’s the way Stella operates, taking her revenge on setbacks by seeking to turn them into something positive – just as she did with Europa Donna, the breast cancer ‘awareness movement’ whose Cyprus branch she was instrumental in founding not long after her own illness (she was also president of the European parent association for two years, 2004-06).She’s a positive person, she affirms, a glass-half-full person – which is not to say that she’s bubbly or carefree. She seems steely, meticulous, thoroughly organised. “Let’s try and get it done by one o’clock,” she says of our interview (we meet in her office in Parliament, on a warm Friday morning) – and bang on time, without being prompted by her secretary, she suggests that we wrap things up. She comes off as a passionate technocrat, thoroughly enamoured of the EU – it’s “a wonderful benchmark for where we should be going” – and happier with science than abstract speculation. ‘What do you think happens after death?’ I ask, assuming that someone who’s come face-to-face with her own mortality is likely to have some thoughts on the subject. “I have no idea,” she replies flatly.What would she say is her biggest character flaw? Once again, she demurs, turning to her colleague Panicos Pourgourides (who’s sitting in on the interview) for help. She’s a perfectionist, he admits wryly; sometimes she’ll end up putting others under pressure with her high standards – but she’s also sensitive, and will always turn around and reassure them when she sees they feel pressured. I sense a bit of that even in our own brief chat, the spiky side – refusing to give way on this or that point – closely followed by the sweet, mollifying, no-hard-feelings side. “She inspires people,” adds Panicos, and the secretary pipes up from her desk in agreement. “They exaggerate,” smiles Stella regally.Is she pushy? “I’m determined. I’m determined, and I’m focused.” Her background is in psychology and child psychology. She worked at the Makarios hospital for 26 years, most of her adult life (she still has a touch of the doctor’s manner, cordial but detached), indeed “I was the first psychologist to go to the hospital, the first to work with children there”. When she started, “they didn’t think they needed a psychologist”. This was Cyprus in the 80s, a time before counselling and therapy; Stella was inevitably posted to the psychiatric hospital – but finally wangled a job working at Makarios for half an hour every week. She agreed to the hours, even though she’d be spending more time driving to the hospital than actually working there, “because I knew that, once the doctors found out what I could offer children, they would themselves ask for my time to be increased”. This, in a nutshell, seems to be her style: self-belief and quiet persistence, an iron hand in a velvet glove.She gets things done; she always has. I ask if she misses the relative anonymity of her younger years – but in fact she was always a familiar face, even before politics and her own health problems placed her even more firmly in the public eye. These days, in addition to PACE, she works mostly on patients’ rights – a “very strong law” was passed a couple of years ago – women’s health and equality, the issue of child sexual abuse (which she knew about from her work in the hospital, at a time when no-one spoke of it publicly), human rights and of course their first cousin, animal rights. She also does a lot of volunteering, visiting families to offer cancer support and advice in general. Her work is a huge chunk of her life – “I’m not big on hobbies” – not just enacting laws but making sure they’re implemented, putting a note in her diary and chasing it up: “I’m very much the person who’ll go back to it in three months and say ‘Is it still working?’”. She’s the rare, annoying politician who doesn’t stop at the photo ops.And the cancer? The disease that’s almost seemed to be stalking her for the past 50 years? “It’s part of your life,” she opines. “It doesn’t rule your life, but it’s part of your life.” How, I inevitably ask, has it shaped her? “I think it’s changed me tremendously.” Priorities change, muses Stella. “You learn to value small things in life. You learn to be satisfied with much simpler things.”She tells a story, from the time she went back to work after her first diagnosis. She was walking with her colleague Niki Christofi, going up to the ward, and they passed a roundabout planted with huge, imposing sunflowers. “And I turned around and said: ‘Niki, look at the sunflowers, aren’t they beautiful?’. And she says to me” – Stella gives it a short dramatic pause: “‘They’ve always been there!’. And I hadn’t seen them…”It’s a lovely story, but I don’t know how useful it is in making sense of this practical, undoubtedly driven woman; newfound perspective or not, I’m pretty sure she needs more from life than gazing at sunflowers. Then again, there’s also something oddly vulnerable about Stella Kyriakidou, something I glimpse (or think I glimpse) without quite being sure of it. She seems so stable, so rational; yet she also maintains that her husband Kikis is the stable one (“I get excited”), and her brother Chris is “my rock” – a reminder that she’s been through a lot, despite her poise. “I love routine,” she says, rather surprisingly. “I don’t need big excitements.”The work is challenging, the life is high-profile – yet the woman behind it may indeed have a softer, even shy side. It’s 10 past one, I’m packing up to leave; Stella sits in the small parliamentary office, flanked by Panicos and her secretary, looking more relaxed with the morning’s work behind her. “I feel happy,” she says unexpectedly. “It’s Friday, the end of the week. We had a good interview, nice honest conversation. I’m seeing friends this evening…” She nods, as if in defiance of the dark spectre that first appeared in her childhood, and the painful experiences that tried – and failed – to define her: “I’m happy”.
