Silicon Valley is seeing employment growth and a record number of megadeals, but it's coming at rising costs -- especially when it comes to housing and income inequality, according to a Wednesday report by Joint Venture Silicon Valley.

"The granularity of migration data in this year's Index is eye opening - we're essentially turning over our

population by nearly 5% every year, with the influx of foreign immigrants increasing our region's diversity and tech talent base," Rachel Massaro, Joint Venture vice president and director of research for the institute, said in a release.

  Sacramento, UC Berkeley work to bring startups to city The city of Sacramento and UC Berkeley announced a new partnership Tuesday that aims to make the capital city the latest startup frontier. “It’s going to bring money,” said Caroline Winnett. “But most importantly, it’s going to bring innovation.” Sign up for our Newsletters Winnett is the executive director for UC Berkeley’s SkyDeck program. The program funds and accelerates startups. Starting this month, Sacramento is entering a partnership with SkyDeck to bring seven startups to the city. “I’m a big believer in SkyDeck and I’m a big believer in the power of Sacramento,” said Lt. Governor Eleni Kounalakis.

SAN FRANCISCO — Silicon Valley parents are increasingly obsessed with keeping their children “The people who are closest to tech are the most strict about it at home,” said Lynn Perkins, the Narcing Out Nannies. Some parents in Silicon Valley are embracing a more aggressive approach.

If Silicon Valley ’s relative decline heralded the rise of a global web of thriving, rival tech hubs, that would be worth celebrating. Unfortunately, the Valley ’s peak looks more like a warning that innovation everywhere is becoming harder. This article appeared in the Leaders section of the print edition under

There have been 821,000 new jobs in the Bay Area since the recession, but only 173,000 new housing units, Joint Venture CEO and president of the institute Russell Hancock said in the release. This lends itself to skyrocketing home prices and "creaking infrastructure," he said.

The median home price is more than $1 million, making it the highest in the nation. More than 11,000 people in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties are homeless, according to the report. Additionally, 30% of residents aren't meeting self-sufficiency standards as the cost of goods and services has gone up by 2.7% in the last year.

Income and wealth inequality are growing as costs rise, with wealth inequality hitting "a historic high as 13% of households hold more than 75% of the region's wealth," according to the report. While 13% of households have more than $1 million in net assets, 37% have less than $25,000 in savings.

Still, the unemployment rate hit a 19-year low at 2.1%, and Silicon Valley added around 30,000 new jobs, outpacing state and national numbers. In 2019, regional GDP went up by $17 billion.

Venture capital also saw positive numbers, with $42 billion being invested in Silicon Valley and San Francisco companies, Joint Venture says. There was also a record 92 megadeals, and 22 local companies debuted on Wall Street.

Artificial Atoms Could Usher In the Quantum Revolution .
For better qubits, you need more stable atoms. Engineers think they have them.The University of South Wales has made news for previous qubit developments like a suggested periodic table, and the same team is working on the new silicon qubit chips. The quantum dots themselves are made of silicon, and in an artificial atom structure, electrons still swirl and act, but just aren’t surrounding an elemental nucleus.
