In hour one of Here & Now's April 19, 2018 full broadcast, we learn more about the U.S. Geological Survey releasing the results of a simulated 7.0 magnitude earthquake near Oakland: It predicts such a quake along the Hayward fault would kill up to 800 people and more than $100 billion in total damage. Also, Facebook has been under fire for weeks for its privacy practices and the way it monetizes user data. But there are many other companies tracking the data of unsuspecting users. And former Marine and author Phil Klay says a lack of clear mission, and a lack of debate about military missions in American society, are having deleterious effects on U.S. troop morale. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
