New York City is no longer the metro area with the most new coronavirus cases each day in the U.S. In fact, it's not even in the top 20, per Nephron Research. Neither is Boston, D.C., San Francisco or Detroit.

Between the lines: We may still be in the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic as a country, but this phase of it looks very different than the first.

  • Although Los Angeles and Chicago are still adding a lot of new cases each day, the number of cases is decreasing over time. In cities throughout the South and the Sunbelt, cases are increasing — and in some instances skyrocketing.

Yes, but: Now that we as a society have more information about the coronavirus, who is getting it may look different than it did earlier, especially if vulnerable people continue social distancing.

  • In Tennessee, for example, younger people have made up a higher portion of new cases than they did earlier on in the pandemic, according to a recent Vanderbilt report.

The rebellion against Silicon Valley (the place)

Silicon Valley may be a "state of mind," but it's also very much a real enclave in Northern California. Now, a growing faction of the tech industry is boycotting it.

Why it matters: The Bay Area is facing for the first time the prospect of losing its crown as the top destination for tech workers and startups — which could have an economic impact on the region and force it to reckon with its local issues.

Telework's tax mess

As teleworkers flit from city to city, they're creating a huge tax mess.

Why it matters: Our tax laws aren't built for telecommuting, and this new way of working could have dire implications for city and state budgets.
