I believe the correct way to import the packages is to not use

from blah import *

but rather to use:
import numpy as np
import scipy as S
import pylab as pl

This keeps the namespace clean and prevents function collisions.

Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear
and obstacles vanish into air.
