What is Origin: Definition and 660 Discussions

Country of origin (COO) represents the country or countries of manufacture, production, design, or brand origin where an article or product comes from. For multinational brands, COO may include multiple countries within the value-creation process.
There are differing rules of origin under various national laws and international treaties. Country of origin labelling (COOL) is also known as place-based branding, the made-in image or the "nationality bias." In some regions or industries, country of origin labelling may adopt unique local terms such as terroir used to describe wine appellations based on the specific region where grapes are grown and wine manufactured.
Place-based branding has a very ancient history. Archaeological evidence points to packaging specifying the place of manufacture dating back to some 4,000 years ago. Over time, informal labels evolved into formal, often regulated labels providing consumers with information about product quality, manufacturer name and place of origin.

    A 3.5 nC charge is at the origin and a -10 nC charge is at x = 2 cm

    Apparently the answer is not 2.9 cm or 7.4mm. I've looked at similar questions in this thread and solving the exact same way gives me the same answers. I set it up as (3.5/x^2)=(10/(.02+x)^2). What am I doing wrong?

    A What is the origin of the Dipole Repeller and similar structures?

    I can see how slight unevenness in density of the early universe could result in matter grouping due to gravity however I would think that this would lead to more focal regions of higher density and more disperse regions of lower density. I can't visualise a mechanism that would support...

    I Why didn't the Big Bang form a Black Hole?

    (pop science) It seems like the mass in the universe at the point of origin was way higher and the size way smaller than required to form a black hole, so why didn't our universe just sit forever as a single black hole? From a figure for the mass of the universe you could calculate the event...
