When the Federal Trade Commission finds a case of fraud perpetrated on consumers, the agency files actions in federal district court for immediate and permanent orders to stop scams; prevent fraudsters from perpetrating scams in the future; freeze their assets; and get compensation for victims.When consumers see or hear an advertisement, whether it’s on the Internet, radio or television, or anywhere else, federal law says that ad must be truthful, not misleading, and, when appropriate, backed by scientific evidence. The FTC enforces these truth-in-advertising laws, and it applies the same standards no matter where an ad appears – in newspapers and magazines, online, in the mail, or on billboards or buses. The FTC looks especially closely at advertising claims that can affect consumers’ health or their pocketbooks – claims about food, over-the-counter drugs, dietary supplements, alcohol, and tobacco and on conduct related to high-tech products and the Internet. The FTC
Mike works at his parents’ motel in Kingman, population 27,000, on old Route 66. Sue sells art for a Baltimore firm to corporations for office walls. He takes one look at her from behind as she registers at the motel and determines to connect. He’s sweet, but hapless, with no ambition other than spending time with her. She’s enigmatic – rarely smiling, occasionally impulsive, committed to helping homeless people, feeling the clock tick after a breakup with a boyfriend who could have provided security. Is there any way he stands a chance with her? What can he offer?
Some moments just feel right.

What Is Direct to Consumer Advertising (DTC Advertising)?
Direct to consumer advertising (DTC advertising) is marketing that is aimed toward consumers when access to a product may require an intermediary. Direct to consumer (or D2C) advertising may utilize print, social media, TV, radio, and other forms of media with the goal of informing a customer about a product or reminding them of a need for such a product. The most common example of DTC advertising involves prescription pharmaceuticals, but may also include medical and diagnostic devices or services, as well as financial products and services. Since consumers may not be able to obtain products featured in DTC advertising on their own, such as with prescription drugs, the objective is to create a dialog between patients and their doctors with the ultimate goal of increasing sales.

A management degree is a type of business degree awarded to students who have completed a college, university, or business school program with an emphasis on management. Business management is the art of supervising and controlling people and operations in business settings.
Types of Management Degrees
There are four different levels of education to pursue in the management field. Each degree takes a different amount of time to complete, and each level of degree may not be available at every school. For example, community colleges usually award an associate’s degree but do not typically award more advanced degrees like doctorates. Business schools, on the other hand, may award advanced degrees only, and offer no associate’s or bachelor’s programs for undergrads whatsoever.

The functions of management uniquely describe managers’ jobs. The
most commonly cited functions of management are planning, organizing,
leading, and controlling, although some identify additional functions. The
functions of management define the process of management as distinct from
accounting, finance, marketing, and other business functions. These
functions provide a useful way of classifying information about
management, and most basic management texts since the 1950s have been
organized around a functional framework.
DEVELOPMENT OF THE FUNCTIONAL
APPROACH TO MANAGEMENT
Henri Fayol was the first person to identify elements or functions of
management in his classic 1916 book
Administration Industrielle et Generale.
Fayol was the managing director of a large French coal-mining firm and
based his book largely on his experiences as a practitioner of management.
Fayol defined five functions, or elements of management: planning,
organizing, commanding, coordinating, and controlling. Fayol argued that
these functions were universal, in
