How Earthquake can trigger another quake thousands of Km away .

Hi
 This is an interesting article on a major quake inducing another quakes far away and on different plate boundaries also.
  The findings say that a week sound wave or week acoustic frequency can trigger the quake. It may reduce the friction between plate boundaries and hence can induce quake
   I am surprised,if week sound wave can trigger the quake, how and why tidal pull beyond a threshold limit can not trigger quakes?

Any Comments?

Hi Amit;

The article explains that the energy has to be at exactly the right frequency and exactly the right time to trigger a quake.

It's not at all similar to tiny tidal pulls from the moon or planets (which doesn't work).
