40 Maps That Explain The Middle East Maps can be a powerful tool for understanding the world, particularly the Middle East, a place in many ways shaped by changing political borders and demographics. Here are 40 maps crucial for understanding the Middle East — its history, its present, and some of the most important stories in the region today. Middle East History Our Favorite Maps of the Year Cover Everything From Bayous to Bullet Trains "I really love the challenge of making new things look old," said mapmaker Stephen Smith. He was inspired to make this map of US natural resources by a similar British map from around 1940 that he came across in the Boston Public Library. "Many people told me my map reminded them of their grade school wall atlas," he said. Stephen Smith Stamen Design produced this map---and more than 300 others like it---for the National Audubon society's report on climate change.

Michael Schrage would like to see more attention placed on how visualizations can be used as platforms to facilitate wider conversations and interactions. While accessibility and intelligibility of complex information is important, a truly transformative visualization can give users a new way to view each other, as well as the data. “A picture is worth a thousand words” may be a lovely cliché, but it’s exactly the wrong way to view visualization.
Regular expression operations - Python v2.7.2 documentation This module provides regular expression matching operations similar to those found in Perl. Both patterns and strings to be searched can be Unicode strings as well as 8-bit strings. Regular expressions use the backslash character ('\') to indicate special forms or to allow special characters to be used without invoking their special meaning. This collides with Python’s usage of the same character for the same purpose in string literals; for example, to match a literal backslash, one might have to write '\\\\' as the pattern string, because the regular expression must be \\, and each backslash must be expressed as \\ inside a regular Python string literal. The solution is to use Python’s raw string notation for regular expression patterns; backslashes are not handled in any special way in a string literal prefixed with 'r'. So r"\n" is a two-character string containing '\' and 'n', while "\n" is a one-character string containing a newline.
