|BEIJING Ramon Sessions Jersey , Sept. 23 (Xinhua) -- The zero-depth earthquake measuring 3.4 on the Richter scale that occurred Saturday in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) is not the result of a nuclear test, the China Earthquake Networks Center (CENC) said.
The China Earthquake Administration, of which the CENC is a part, and related departments conducted studies on the infrasonic records of the earthquake and previous quakes including those provoked by nuclear tests on the Korean Peninsula. They concluded that Saturday's quake is a natural one, the seismic service said.
The epicenter was at 41.36 degrees north latitude and 129.06 degrees east latitude Otto Porter Jersey , according to the CENC.
The epicenter was roughly the same with a similar shallow earthquake on Sept. 3, which turned out to be caused by a nuclear test by the DPRK.
Earlier, South Korea's weather agency said the quake is presumed to have been a natural one, the country's Yonhap news agency reported.
"The quake is presumed to have occurred naturally," the report quoted an agency official as saying. "A sound wave Michael Jordan Jersey , which is usually generated in the event of an artificial earthquake, was not detected."

Russia-friendly Czech President Milos Zeman won the first round of voting to retain his job on Saturday, but pro-western runner-up Jiri Drahos will be a formidable opponent in the second round vote in two weeks Markieff Morris Jersey , nearly complete results showed.
The vote is seen as a referendum on the 73-year-old Zeman, in office since 2013, who has criticized immigration flows from Muslim countries and Germany's decision to accept migrants.
While most Czechs share his views on immigration, Zeman's inclination towards far-right groups and his warm relations with Russia and China have split public opinion, with a sizeable chunk of the electorate favouring pro-western candidates Marcin Gortat Jersey , including 68-year-old academic Drahos.
Czech presidents have limited executive powers, but Zeman and his predecessors have had a strong influence on public debate. They are also pivotal in forming governments.
With votes from 98.9 percent of districts counted, Zeman led the race with 38.6 percent of votes, while Drahos had won 26.6 percent.
That mean s a run-off needs to be held, and the balance of power may be closer than the first round showed. Four other candidates who ended between the third and sixth place and among them won 32.5 percent Kelly Oubre Jr. Jersey , all endorsed Drahos for the second round due on Jan. 26-27.
""This looks hopeful,"" Drahos told supporters and reporters at a Prague theatre after most results had come in.
Zeman, who had shunned public debates ahead of the first round, accepted Drahos' challenge to a television duel and said he hoped voters could make up their own mind.
The outcome may also influence Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis's chances of forming a cabinet. His first attempt to rule in a minority administration is likely to be rejected by parliament next week.
" I once had a custom-made mouthguard that I used when playing masters' basketball. I used it for about 10 years, thinking Juwan Howard Jersey , heck, a dentist made it - it should last forever.
Mouthguards are excellent safety devices and should be worn by any athlete participating in contact sports. Unfortunately, they don't last forever, and normal wear and tear will reduce their effectiveness--often in a year or even less.
In fact, custom-made mouthguards are often given a two-year lifespan by dentists. But recent research has shown that mouthguards can lose their thickness by .1 to .5 mm over a six-week period of regular football practice and competition (about half a season). A loss of .5mm in thickness can result in a 30% reduction in effectiveness.
Studies have also shown that mouthguards can lose their shape over the course of the season Jodie Meeks Jersey , with the subject guards averaging a 9% change in shape by mid-season. This too, can reduce their fit and effectiveness.
Certain common practices deform the shape of mouthguards, making them less effective. Examples include removing the guards and chewing on their outside surface, or wedging them into the facemask, which both deforms and exposes them to destructive sunlight.
HOW TO EXTEND THEIR LIFESPAN
You can increase the lifespan of mouthguards by stopping the above practices. Storing them in containers is also effective Jason Smith Jersey , as is providing facemask attachments, which reduces the likelihood that players will chew on them.
One other thing you might do, if getting a custom-made mouthguard, is to ask your dentist to make the guard 3mm or 4mm thick. That may be thicker than what they normally provide (the study below used 2mm guards), but the extra material should provide extra shock protection and durability. A 2005 study by Waked and Caputo found that 4 mm is the maximum thickness that will be considered comfortable enough to be tolerated by athletes. The 3mm versions are often recommended by dentists.
The mouthguards used in the study were custom-made. Off-the-shelf guards may have different rates of degradation. But the concept is the same for off-the-shelf guards. Check them the regularly Ian Mahinmi Jersey , make sure they aren't deformed in.
