QGIS basic tutorial 1 - attribute table, sorting, filtering

I use QGIS to prepare shape files for creation of maps in Tableau. Some shape files demand changes to match my Tableau projects so I decided to share few tips how to work with them.

In the tutorial I work with QGIS 2.0.1. and the shape file of Ukrainian administrative districts from GADM.

Terrorist attacks in Russia since 1991

The researchers at the University of Maryland have created the world's largest database of terrorists attacks.
Between 1991 and 2012, there were 1,895 attacks in Russia.

In my dataviz I used data published by the Guardian.
I would like to add the data for 2013, hope to get them somewhere...
