Full Answer

The commercial gain obtained by a sponsor is in the form of public exposure for its brand. This often takes the form of the sponsor's logo being displayed dominantly. Sponsorships are different from donations in that a donation does not require any reciprocation. Sponsorships can be included as part of marketing strategies but are not considered advertising. Events or organizations with multiple sponsors often create tiers for the exposure that they offer to their individual sponsors based on the size of the sponsor's support.

    How do RFID tags work?

    A:

    RFID tags work by absorbing the radio frequency energy from a scanner and using that energy to respond with data. The simplest passive tag consists of an antenna and chip containing encoded data, and its only power source is the electromagnetic energy it absorbs from the scanning pulse. These tags are cheap and easy to manufacture, but their effective range for scanning is extremely limited.

    How does a bill of exchange work?

    A:

    A bill of exchange is a three-party, non-interest, written order that is created by the first party, the drawer, and it presents an order for the second party, or the payor, to make a sum payment to a third-party, the payee. If it is a sight bill, the payment is to be made immediately, and if it is a term bill, the payment is set for a future date. The payor accepts the draft by signing it, converting the draft into a post-dated check and a binding contract.
