Earthquakes are found 15 miles below California, but what does it mean?

Good morning. It is Friday, Oct. 7. Meet the guy who is squatting on domain names for state ballot measures. Here’s what else is happening in the Golden State:

TOP STORIES

Fallen officer

L.A. County Sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Owen is being remembered as a caring cop who reached out to those who had run-ins with the law. “This guy, when I was in trouble, kept me straight,” said one man. Owen was shot Wednesday by a 27-year-old man with a stolen gun, according to authorities. Sheriff Jim McDonnell said Owen was essentially “executed.” Los Angeles Times

Deeper earthquakes

Earthquakes occur much deeper below ground than scientists originally believed, according to new findings. That means faults like the Newport-Inglewood and the San Andreas could experience even more powerful earthquakes than expected. “The big question is: If the next, larger earthquake happens, if it manages to penetrate deeper than we think, it may be bigger than we expect,” said Caltech seismology professor Jean Paul Ampuero. Los Angeles Times

BUSINESS AND TECH

Big time: Is Snapchat getting ready to go public? There is speculation that the app, now formally known as Snap Inc., is eyeing a $25-billion initial public offering for the first quarter of next year. Los Angeles Times

A misstep: Facebook’s Marketplace launched Monday, and so far it’s not going great. Almost immediately, Marketplace was flooded with ads for guns, sex and illegal drugs, all of which violate the company’s commerce policy. New York Times

Gender discrimination: A former Yahoo employee is accusing CEO Marissa Mayer of purging male employees from the tech firm. In a new lawsuit, Scott Ard, editor of the Silicon Valley Business Journal, alleged “Mayer encouraged and fostered the use of (an employee performance-rating system) to accommodate management’s subjective biases and personal opinions, to the detriment of Yahoo’s male employees.” Mercury News

Actors’ union: Gabrielle Carteris is making her mark as president of SAG-AFTRA. “One of my real interests is to work on inclusivity — looking at diversity and gender equity. That for me, being a woman, is really important,” she says. Los Angeles Times

DROUGHT AND CLIMATE

Tree falls in the woods: A giant Pacific madrone has fallen victim to the Soberanes fire. “Undoubtedly, that tree has seen other fires, but it just didn’t make it this time,” said Jeff Cann, an environmental scientist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. SFGate

CALIFORNIA CULTURE

How rude: KTLA entertainment reporter Sam Rubin is calling out Ben Affleck and an aggressive flack, alleging censorship.

AND FINALLY

Today’s California Memory comes from Laurence Budd:

“In the summer of 1965 I visited my aunt and uncle in Woodland Hills. For a 12-year-old boy from Indiana, the Valley was a tropical paradise and Hollywood was the center of the universe. Lush vegetation lined the Ventura Freeway. The wonderful scent of orange blossoms filled the air. I assumed it was called ‘The Valley’ because it was ‘The Valley of the Jolly Green Giant!’ (HoHoHo!) TV and movie stars seemed to be around every corner, the Beach Boys were hot with ‘Good Vibrations.’ Malibu Beach was exactly like the bikini movies, a dream come true for any teenage boy. Off in the corners, the magic is still there.”
