π Day Celebrations ( Pi Day) - 3/14/15 926 am and 53 seconds

<font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 10pt; line-height: normal;">Some of you who celebrated π Day last year know that this year is a very important year for everyone’s favourite mathematical constant π. On 3/14/15 926 am and 53 seconds (next Saturday) will represent the constant π (π = 3.14159265389…). Unfortunately this falls on a Saturday. Globally π day is celebrated mostly by eating π, but π throwing is allowed. Due to the date system it is usually celebrated in the USA, but </span><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px; line-height: normal;">mathematical</span><span style="font-size: 10pt; line-height: normal;"> departments all across the UK celebrate it now. </span></font><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px; line-height: normal;"><br></span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px; line-height: normal;">At work on the 16th March we will celebrate with my colleagues in my university. I am looking forward to eating pie from the following countries (Brasil, Hungary, Spain, Croatia, Uzbekistan, Russia, New Zealand, Turkey, Malaysia, Thailand, Mauritius, Italy, Germany). I hope everyone here will join in.  </span><br></font><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family: Arial, Verdana; font-size: 10pt; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal;"> <br><o:p></o:p></p></div>
