^ This is a comment, you are not importing numpy!
I think it is generally better to not do
from ... import *
because it messes up the namespace; it can happen that a second module
overwrites a function from the first module.
This happens for example with:
from numpy import *
from pylab import *
pylab has a "load" function which is not the same as the numpy "load"
function.
I always use
import numpy as N
