Domino’s Pizza

Domino is a brand of pizza. The company is based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and has 25,000 restaurants around the world. Their pizza is popular because it tastes fresh and is delivered quickly. The company also has a strong focus on technology, which is part of their strategy to grow. For example, they recently announced that they would allow customers to order pizza from their cars using Apple CarPlay.

The word domino comes from the Latin dominus, meaning master of the house. The name was adapted to Scottish and English dominie, then to a type of monastic hood, then to a hooded mask worn at festivals and to a kind of game with a line of domino pieces. The game arrived in Britain from France in the late 18th Century and became a fad. The word domino also became the name of a black and white hood that Christian priests wore in winter, which is probably where it got its final spelling of domino.

Dominoes (also known as bones, cards, men or tiles) are rectangular blocks with a line down the center that divides them visually into two squares. Each square has a number of spots, or pips, that indicate its value. Traditionally, dominoes have been made of bone, silver lip ocean pearl oyster shell (mother of pearl or MOP), ivory and dark hardwoods such as ebony, with contrasting black or white pips inlaid or painted on them. Occasionally, a set of dominoes may be made out of natural stone such as marble or soapstone; metal such as brass or pewter; ceramic clay; or other materials.

Usually, dominoes are twice as long as they are wide, which makes them easy to stack one on top of another and move them about. They are typically stored in a holder, a plastic or wooden box designed to hold a set of them. Dominoes can be used in a variety of ways, such as playing blocking or scoring games. Blocking games require players to place a domino so that its pips match those of a previous domino played adjacent to it. Scoring games involve adding up values of a row or column of dominoes. There are also many games that use only a portion of a domino set, such as the Concentration game, which uses just the double-six dominoes in a double-twelve or double-nine domino sets.

The domino effect is a concept in physics that suggests that a small change can have a large impact. For example, the first domino in a chain of 13 may only be 5 millimeters tall and 1 millimeter thick, but it has a great impact on the outcome of the chain because the chain is amplified by its high center of gravity. This is a powerful metaphor for the way that small changes can make a big difference in our lives. This is especially true when it comes to writing fiction, as the domino effect can help us see how a character’s actions will affect the rest of the story.
