Python: Removing Matrix columns that contain NaN

Removing Matrix columns that contain NaN. This is a lengthy answer, but hopefully easy to follow.
def column_to_vector(matrix, i):
    return [row[i] for row in matrix]
import numpy
def remove_NaN_columns(matrix):
    import scipy
    import math
    from numpy import column_stack, vstack

    columns = A.shape[1]
    #print("columns", columns)
    result = []
    skip_column = True
    for column in range(0, columns):
        vector = column_to_vector(A, column)
        skip_column = False
        for value in vector:
            # print(column, vector, value, math.isnan(value) )
            if math.isnan(value):
                skip_column = True
        if skip_column == False:
            result.append(vector)
    return column_stack(result)

### test it
A = vstack(([ float('NaN'), 2., 3., float('NaN')], [ 1., 2., 3., 9]))
print("A shape", A.shape, "\n", A)
B = remove_NaN_columns(A)
print("B shape", B.shape, "\n", B)

A shape (2, 4) 
 [[ nan   2.   3.  nan]
 [  1.   2.   3.   9.]]
B shape (2, 2) 
 [[ 2.  3.]
 [ 2.  3.]]

MacBook Pro WiFi problems

I was having problems with WiFi connections on both 2013 MacBook Pro 15 i7 and 2015 MacBook Pro 13 i5.

 To solve it I had to delete the following preferences file:

$ rm /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.airport.preferences.plist
