Google doodle celebrates Pi Day

This year it's celebrated by Google with a Google Doodle designed by the inventor of the cronut, pastry chef Dominique Ansel.

Pi is a mathematical constant whose value is the ratio between the circumference and the diameter of any circle in a Euclidean space, and the symbol of Pi (π) was first proposed in 1706 by the mathematician William Jones.

This year's Pi Day is the 30th anniversary of its first commemoration back in 1988, when physicist Larry Shaw first organized the holiday in San Francisco based on the date - 3/14 - the first three digits of the infinite, irrational number that has been utilized in mathematics and science for thousands of years. From 2009 to 2012, she was an award-winning syndicated columnist for a number of daily newspapers from NY to Texas. In layman's terms, 3.14 is only the beginning and the number goes on for infinity. For those who are wondering what it is, it's Pi Day.

The Pi Day is celebrated in the whole world by children and adults, through unique contests but also by eating "pies" Pi-es . Mike Keith wrote a book "Not A Wake" entirely in Pilish.

Pi's existence was recorded as early as nearly 4,000 years ago.

Tyrann Mathieu handled his release from the Cardinals in the classiest way
He was due $13.75 million in guaranteed salary for 2018 and 2019 had he been on the Cardinals' roster at 4 p.m. However, an agreement never came to fruition, and the 25-year old defensive back is now available.

The earliest proven use of a good approximation of the length of a circumference relative to the radius is 3+1/7 and it has been used at the construction of pyramids in Ancient Egypt.

Pi does not belong in the category of normal numbers, at least it is believed so by Mathematicians.

How to celebrate Pi Day?

The global day of Pi was first recognized in 1988 by physicist Larry Shaw. The topics this year include calculations for Martian earthquakes, helium rain on Jupiter, and the rotation rate of the first interstellar visitor ever discovered, asteroid 'Oumuamua.
