Differences in Daily Fantasy Sports Sites

There are only two main sites that users can choose from to play daily fantasy, DraftKings and FanDuel. Both sites share similarities but at the same time are drastically different. Both are similar in popularity and have been around since the beginning of daily fantasy sports. 토토사이트 Both sites offer hundreds of contests and pay out millions of dollars every day. The sites pay out at an identical rate and the contests offer the same rewards on both sites. So how do you choose which one to use?

The answer is pretty simple; try both of them out and choose which one you like more. Both sites will pay out the same. So, profitability and your chances of winning are basically undistinguishable between the two. The difference between the sites is how you build your lineup for your daily contests. For example, in daily NBA contests, on DraftKings you choose eight players and on FanDuel you choose nine players. DraftKings gives you a salary cap of $50,000, allowing you to choose eight players with combined salaries of $50,000 or less. On FanDuel, you have a $60,000 salary cap to choose nine players to fit into your lineup. Salaries of each player are different on each site. A popular opinion is that you can have more superstars or more higher salaried players on FanDuel because of the higher salary cap. This may be true, but everyone else you are competing against also gets more superstars or better players so it does not really make a difference.

FanDuel’s lineups are constructed of two point guards, two shooting guards, two small forwards, two power forwards, but only one center. DraftKings’ lineups are constructed of one of each of the five positions (PG, SG, SF, PF, C) and then one guard, so you must choose a point or shooting guard, one forward, either a small or power forward, and then finally a “Utility” player (this mean you can choose any player at any position) So the main difference between the sites is the strategy you use to construct your lineups. I suggest going and playing around on both sites and seeing which one you like better.

I would suggest choosing one site and playing that one only, not both. The strategies are different for both sites so once you choose you will want to stick with one and perfect your own strategy of building daily lineups. Bouncing back and fourth between sites will just be more challenging and require more time and research. Once you figure out which site you want to use, use it everyday and perfect your own strategy. The more times you play and the more experience you gain in creating lineups, the better you will become. There is a skill in building these lineups daily and with all skills you have to practice them to get better.

Certified Organic Pet Foods Are the Only Organic Pet Foods That Are Regulated by the USDA

The pet food market is flooded with all kinds of organic claims. However, only a few of these claims have been substantiated by a third party. Only USDA certified organic pet foods provide the assurance of strict regulation, verification, and legal enforcement to support their status as truly organic. Organic claims made without USDA certification are not subject to any kind of regulation. Such claims are based solely on the manufacturer’s word and, as such, 먹튀검증 may or may not be true. So, as you might guess, abuse of the term ‘organic’ is unfortunately quite common in the pet food industry.

What you might not realize is that USDA certified organic pet foods are currently subject to the same regulations which apply to organic foods for human consumption. All the ingredient choices and manufacturing processes involved in the production of USDA certified organic pet foods must therefore comply with the National Organic Program (NOP) standards established by the USDA. USDA certified organic pet foods must contain at least 95% organic ingredients and all ingredients must be fully traceable from their sources to specific production batches. Furthermore, NOP standards prohibit the use of conventional ingredients if organic versions are available; exceptions are made in cases where certain organic ingredients aren’t available and the only options are conventional varieties (e.g., calcium carbonate and fish). NOP standards also prohibit the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). If a conventional, or non-certified organic, ingredient, such as citric acid, is used, a non-GMO certificate must be provided by the organic producer. As well, NOP standards prohibit the use of ingredients which were treated with antibiotics or hormones, as well as the inclusion of potentially toxic synthetics, such as artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, in certified organic pet foods.

Finally, NOP standards prohibit the use of potentially or known toxic chemicals during the manufacturing or storage of USDA certified organic pet foods. For example, highly toxic sanitizers cannot be used on food preparation surfaces, and neither ingredients nor the final pet food products can be fumigated with pesticides. Only pesticides and sanitizers that are known to be safe are allowed in the manufacturing facilities or storage areas of companies that produce certified organic pet foods.

Documentation for all ingredients used in the manufacture of USDA certified organic pet foods must be provided in the form of a current organic certificate for each ingredient.

USDA organic certification of pet foods mandates compliance with all USDA NOP regulations and requires, at minimum, an annual inspection of the manufacturing facility by a USDA-accredited organic certifying agency. All books and records concerning ingredients, food handling plans within the facility, and final products must be available for inspection by the USDA or its accredited certifiers; records for any given production run must be retained for possible inspection for several years.

USDA certified organic pet food products must disclose the name of the organic certifying agency and mostly also display the USDA organic seal. The organic certificate for each USDA certified organic product should be made freely available by the manufacturer to any customer requesting it.

A final thought: organic claims other than those made under the assurance of USDA certification are often used by pet food manufacturers to increase their sales. Even if manufacturers claim to use organic ingredients that are free of hormones, antibiotics, or GMOs, such claims are not verified by an unbiased party and, most importantly of all, cannot be verified by you, the consumer.

As one State compliance officer at the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) recently noted, “… It is buyer beware of any pet food product that does not show that it is certified by one of the NOP certification agents”.
