The weekend is almost here and its excitement all round for those of us who don’t have to work, also a good opportunity to spend time with loved ones.

Today we will jump in with news of the Google Doodle celebration.

Google Doodle celebrates Sir William Ramsay’s 167th birthday today, the Scottish chemist who changed the periodic table forever by finding the noble gases such as helium and neon. The noble gases are a group of chemical elements with very low reactivity that have a wide range of uses such as in refrigerants, anaesthetics, lighting and MRI scanners.

Sir William Ramsay was born in 1852 in Glasgow. He married in 1881 and has a daughter and a son. He died in1916, from nasal cancer.

Sir William Ramsay studied chemistry and went to University of Tubingen, Germany to his doctorate. Then, he was appointed the head of Inorganic Chemistry at University College, London, in 1887. He focused on previously unknown gases that must be present in the atmosphere.

Sir William Ramsay, together with Lord Rayleigh, discovered argon, a chemically inert gas, and further expanded his research to discover other noble gases, including helium, neon, krypton, and xenon. He received the Noble Prize in Chemistry in 1904 for his work on Noble Gas, after his appointment as a Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath (KCB) in 1902.

Peter Sissons, who is the Former BBC, Channel 4 and ITN newsreader in orderly and has 45 years of career, died peacefully last night at 77 in Maidstone Hospital, Kent. Sissons was born in Liverpool. Sissons has his wife and three children, including daughter Kate, who is an actress.

Sissons started his journalism career in 1964 in ITN with news about Nigerian Civil War and after working as ITN’s industrial editor, he presented the news channel’s lunchtime New At One programme in 1976 and he also co-presented numerous election night broadcasts.

Sissons had spent seven years at Channel 4 since 1982, before start to working in the BBC in 1989. He left the BBC in 1993, but continued to participate in the BBC’s Nine and 10 O’clock programs. One of his most high-profile moments at the BBC was his sad task of announcing the death of the Queen Mother in 2002 who died aged 101. Announcing this breaking news, he was pretty criticized for wearing a burgundy tie instead of black.

Sissons retired in 2009 to complete his autobiography, known as “When One Door Closes”, which was released in 2011.

Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, was able to dazzle on her royal tour of South Africa with Prince Harry and Archie Harrison, although she spent much less (£4,100 vs £118,000) compared to her previous royal expeditions.

While addressing the public on the last day of their royal trip, the Duke of Sussex, Harry, said that he and his wife would “always stand up for what we believe” and would always see to “challenge injustice”.

The couple announced that the duchess is taking legal action against a tabloid newspaper, The Mail on Sunday, over its “unlawful” publication in February of a letter written by Meghan Markle to her father, Thomas. This legal action may result in both her and her husband having to give extensive court testimony and footing a hefty legal bill.
