Millennials and Gen Xers are leaving California in droves

by Joel Kotkin

Will the last person to leave California turn out the lights? Credit: Getty

Since the days of the Gold Rush, California has been a magnet for those seeking wealth. A backwater just a century ago, with a population of just over 3 million compared to nearly 40 million today, the Golden State has established dominance in everything from agriculture and movies to world travel. space and the Internet.

But new data suggests the tide may be turning and a rich hegira is brewing.

Researchers found that 39,000 San Franciscans who filed 2018 federal income tax returns left town before filing 2019 returns, taking home $7 billion in net income in one year. A report soon to be published by San Francisco Business Timessources tell me, will see a similar phenomenon in Silicon Valley.

Once able to retain its wealth, the Golden State seems to be following the course of high-tax places like New York, Illinois, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Connecticut. For years, these cities and states generated billions in tax revenue as wealthy residents fled to Texas, Florida, Arizona, the Carolinas and Tennessee. While California still trails New York State in the money-losing draw, it is catching up: in 2020, the state lost $17.8 billion in tax revenue, the loss spreading through the Bay Area, whose tech-rich economy has historically kept the state solvent. .

Remarkably, this all happened at a time when the tech economy – the driving force of the Bay Area – was at its peak, and the disruptions associated with Covid-19 and the George Floyd protests had yet to pass. produced.

The reasons for this exodus are not hard to find. We know that emigration from the Bay Area has skyrocketed since 2019, with the greatest percentage of resident loss occurring in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Why? Because the state is becoming less and less secure. Indeed, two in three SF residents consider leaving due to crime and homelessness, with an astonishing half of San Franciscans saying in a survey they were robbed.

Those leaving were not sluggish Trumpistas or illiterate peasants (California leads the nation in illiteracy). In fact, the latest IRS data reveals that the greatest net inward migration is among disaffected 35 to 44 year olds, precisely the ages when many people are hitting their peak incomes, buying homes and starting businesses.

It shows that, for the first time in its modern history, California is no longer a beacon for the young and ambitious. The state has become the incubator for some of the worst political trends of our time – affirmative action, climate hysteria, identity politics – and it shows no signs of turning away from them. Slowly but surely the state will essentially be one big retirement home. If things continue like this, it’ll be time to throw away the surfboard and get a walker – if we can still pay our bills.

]]> China angered by Biden’s pledge of support for Taiwan – NBC Bay Area https://tagsarea.com/china-angered-by-bidens-pledge-of-support-for-taiwan-nbc-bay-area/ Mon, 19 Sep 2022 22:07:20 +0000 https://tagsarea.com/china-angered-by-bidens-pledge-of-support-for-taiwan-nbc-bay-area/

The Chinese government on Monday criticized President Joe Biden’s statement that US forces would defend Taiwan if Beijing tried to invade as a violation of US commitments on the self-governing island, but gave no indication of possible retaliation.

Biden said ‘yes’ when asked during an interview on CBS News’ ’60 Minutes’ on Sunday whether ‘US forces, American men and women, would defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion’ .

The comment adds to official US displays of support for island democracy in the face of growing shows of force from the mainland’s ruling Communist Party, which claims Taiwan as part of its territory.

Without quoting Biden by name, a Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said the ‘American remarks’ violate Washington’s pledge not to support formal independence for Taiwan, a step Beijing says would lead to war .

“China deplores and firmly rejects it and has filed solemn complaints with the US side,” spokeswoman Mao Ning said.

CBS News reported that the White House said after the interview that US policy had not changed. This policy indicates that Washington wants to see Taiwan’s status resolved peacefully, but does not say whether US forces could be sent in response to a Chinese attack.

Tensions are mounting following efforts by Chinese President Xi Jinping’s government to intimidate Taiwan by firing missiles into the nearby sea and flying fighter jets to the island after visits to Taipei by political figures including US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Mao called on Washington to “handle Taiwan-related issues cautiously” and “not to send the wrong signals” to supporters of Taiwan independence “to avoid further damage to China-US relations as well as to the peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait”.

Taiwan and China separated in 1949 after a civil war that ended with the Communist Party ruling the mainland. The two governments say they are one country but argue over who has the right to be the national leader.

“We will do our utmost to fight for the prospect of peaceful reunification with utmost sincerity, while we will not tolerate any activity aimed at dividing China and reserve the possibility of taking all necessary measures,” Mao said. .

Taiwan’s foreign ministry expressed “sincere gratitude” to Biden for “upholding the US government’s unwavering promise of security in Taiwan.”

Taiwan will “resist authoritarian expansion and aggression” and “deepen the close security partnership” with Washington and other “like-minded” governments to safeguard regional stability, the statement said.

Washington is obligated by federal law to ensure Taiwan has the means to defend itself but does not say whether US forces would be sent. The United States has no formal relations with the island but maintains informal diplomatic relations.

The Communist Party has persuaded most foreign governments to transfer official recognition to Beijing, although many maintain informal ties and have extensive trade and investment relations with Taiwan. The island’s official diplomatic partners are mostly small, poor countries in Africa and Latin America.

“Taiwan is an inalienable part of China, Mao said. “The government of the People’s Republic of China is the only legal government representing the whole of China.”

Washington says it does not support formal independence for Taiwan, a position repeated by Biden in the interview broadcast Sunday.

“Taiwan makes its own judgments about its independence,” the president said. “We do not encourage their independence.”

In May, Biden said “yes” when asked at a press conference in Tokyo if he was prepared to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if China invaded.

Trey Lance out for San Francisco 49ers season https://tagsarea.com/trey-lance-out-for-san-francisco-49ers-season/ Mon, 19 Sep 2022 16:28:56 +0000 https://tagsarea.com/trey-lance-out-for-san-francisco-49ers-season/

Trey Lance was expected to take the San Francisco 49ers to another level this season. However, he broke his ankle in the first quarter for San Francisco in a 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Lance was ejected from the field and will have to undergo ankle surgery at the end of the season.

Trey Lance was in an aerial cast when he was transported off the pitch and there will be plenty of questions about him going forward though. Lance completed 2 of 3 passes for 30 yards. He also went for 13 yards on three carries. Trey Lance was injured on a running game and not on a passing game.

Many San Francisco 49ers fans on Twitter blamed head coach Kyle Shanahan for Lance’s injury due to coaching malpractice. They felt like they were running with him too much. San Francisco needs to figure out after this season what to do again at quarterback.

General manager John Lynch gave up all those first-round picks a few years to draft him. It looks like a total waste. The question is, who is to blame for this? You can blame both parties for this. There was a reason Jimmy Garoppolo was brought back after all.

This is the last year of his contract. Garoppolo completed 13 of 21 passes for 154 yards and a touchdown. He also had five yards on four carries and a score in that football game as well. A lot of people think they’re better off with Jimmy Garoppolo than Trey Lance in the short term. The long term is going to be a major question mark for the San Francisco 49ers.

Trey Lance will enter his third season next year of his rookie contract. Will San Francisco want to get away from him before his career can even take off or will they try for another year? The Class of 2023 and the Class of 2024 quarterbacks feel absolutely loaded in the NFL Draft. It would be interesting to see what they would do.

The San Francisco 49ers (1-1) next game will be on the road against the Denver Broncos (1-1) on Sunday night 9/25.

The Seattle Seahawks (1-1) next game will be at home against the Atlanta Falcons (0-2) on Sunday 9/25.

VC Firm a16z: ‘Ethereum is a far superior blockchain now than it was before’ https://tagsarea.com/vc-firm-a16z-ethereum-is-a-far-superior-blockchain-now-than-it-was-before/ Sun, 18 Sep 2022 16:15:03 +0000 https://tagsarea.com/vc-firm-a16z-ethereum-is-a-far-superior-blockchain-now-than-it-was-before/

On September 15, the day Ethereum completed its merger upgrade, marking its transition from proof-of-work (PoW) consensus to proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus, the venture capital firm based in Silicon Valley’s Andreessen Horowitz (“a16z”), explained why “Ethereum is a much superior blockchain now than it was before.”

Around 07:00 UTC on September 15, the Ethereum Merge upgrade was complete:

Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin called this successful update a “great moment for the Ethereum ecosystem”:

Andreessen Horowitz, which was founded in 2009 by Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz, is a venture capital firm that “backs bold entrepreneurs who are building the future through technology”. He claims he is stadium agnostic, investing in “seeds to venture into late-stage tech ventures, across bio+health, consumer, crypto, corporate, fintech, games and businesses that lean towards American dynamism”. a16z has “$35 billion in assets under management across multiple funds”.




In a blog post published on the day of the merger, Ali Yaha, a general partner of a16z, called the merger an “insane feat” since this upgrade “involved hot swapping the most important component of the architecture of Ethereum – its consensus mechanism – *while it was running*.” Yaha noted that “all of this happened while maintaining perfect availability for millions of users, thousands of decentralized applications (dapps), and hundreds of billions of dollars secure.”

Yaha then stated that some of the key benefits of moving from Ethereum to PoS consensus:

  • After the merger, Ethereum is now 100 times more energy efficient than before. Participating in consensus no longer expends the massive amount of electricity that PoW does. After The Merge, ETH’s power consumption will be comparable to that of web2 data centers.
  • PoS has direct access to each validator’s “stake”, the funds, or skin-in-the-game, that validators deposit to secure the network. This allows PoS incentives to be much more granular, further increasing security.
  • … anyone with 32 ETH can now participate as a validator on Ethereum.
  • On a PoS blockchain, transactions that go through consensus are final… The finality of transactions on Ethereum will lay the groundwork for future work that will improve Ethereum’s ability to scale (via “layer 2” solutions such as rollups), connect to other blockchains (via -chain bridges), and build better abstractions for developers that are easier to use and reason about.

He also mentioned that fusion is “a big deal” that “brings us closer to a world that benefits from an efficient and secure layer for distributed computing that can support the applications we all want to build.”

“Only 2% of startup funding is allocated to companies founded by women” https://tagsarea.com/only-2-of-startup-funding-is-allocated-to-companies-founded-by-women/ Sun, 18 Sep 2022 08:20:00 +0000 https://tagsarea.com/only-2-of-startup-funding-is-allocated-to-companies-founded-by-women/

Various questions were raised during a panel of women entrepreneurs moderated by Keren Hod, Founder and CEO of WE Women Entrepreneurship, which took place as part of the Mind the Tech conference in New York. Some of the questions apply to all entrepreneurs and others are specific to women entrepreneurs.

However, one of the main points that comes up repeatedly is the minority of women among the founders of start-up companies, as well as the low number of women serving partners in venture capital funds.

“Only 2% of startup funding goes to women-founded businesses, is that an improvement?” Hod asked the panelists.

“Change happens slowly, we need to make successful women role models. As soon as others see it’s possible, it will happen more often,” noted Inbar Haham, co-founder and managing partner of the equity fund- INcapital risk. Companies.

However, Timor Arbel-Sadras, CEO of LeumiTech, disagrees with Haham: “We may be seeing more women in absolute terms, but in terms of percentages, there’s really no progress. Only 10% of venture capital fund partners are women and this number has not increased for years. As a mother of girls, I find this troubling.

“We at Team8 are looking for women entrepreneurs and there are hardly any, it has gotten even worse after Covid and the transition to working from home, where women are still carrying more of the burden. , out of 97 unicorns that exist in Israel today, only one was founded by a woman,” notes Team8 Partner Galia Beer Gavel, referring to Eynat Guez, who founded Papaya, a company operating in the HR sector. -tech.

Inna Braverman, founder and CEO of Eco Wave Power, pointed out that even in the cleantech sector, where the company she founded operates, only 5% of executives are women. “When I founded the company at the age of 24, every time I walked into meeting rooms to present Eco Wave, everyone looked to me only to ask me if I could bring them something. coffee or water Even when attendees realized I was the founder, they didn’t ask me about the technology. Wave on the Stockholm Stock Exchange, I looked at the PR companies, the CEO of one of the biggest companies in the industry in Sweden advised me to leave the position of CEO of the company and bring in a man with graying hair instead. She told me that investors trust men more.

Later, the discussion moved on to more general questions regarding the management of start-up companies such as the timing of entry into the American market, the relocation of senior executives to the United States, as well as considerations for the location of the activity in the United States. Haham noted that more and more companies are moving from Silicon Valley to smaller cities such as Austin, Texas and Miami: “It’s a very smart move because the cost of living outside of San Francisco is much lower, the rent in Austin is only a fraction of that of Silicon Valley. We also really like Toronto because there are a lot of employees with a high level of education and relatively low costs. We have several businesses there and some in Miami as well.

Arbel-Sadras believes that any company that wants to go public must enter the US market in order to receive more confidence from investors. According to her, “In the past, startups that started to grow moved management to the United States. This is especially important for companies that sell to end customers. Israel and today, it depends on the company and its relationship with the market.”

Beer Gavel added that “lately, since the end of the epidemic, entrepreneurs have started to feel the FOMO again, they are worried that they will miss something important and want to move to the United States”.

Finally, Braverman was asked to give advice to women entrepreneurs: “My most important advice to women is to not be afraid to talk about money and not to be afraid to ask for money. If a woman has need a million dollars for her startup, she will ask for half a million dollars where the men, on the other hand, will ask for five million.
