The smoking of the cigarette was banned in many countries by the Government to protect the health of the people.

The earliest appearance of π in scientific literature Photograph: Gareth Roberts In 1706, William Jones – a self-taught mathematician and one of Anglesey’s most famous sons – published his seminal work, Synopsis palmariorum matheseos, roughly translated as A summary of achievements in mathematics.

Radio: Tesla suggested that messages could be transmitted without wires. Tesla realized he gained, by the use of very high frequencies, many advantages in his experiments. Marconi also filed patents for the radio, and when Marconi won the Nobel Prize in 1911, Tesla was furious. He sued the Marconi Company for infringement in 1915. It wasn't until 1943—a few months after Tesla's death— that the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Tesla's radio patent number 645,576.
