It is  7 a.m., 55° and headed to 75°. Details for the next 10 days are here.

SF Gate has a  piece on residents selling their homes in the current housing boom and then moving out of the city.

What’s most interesting is the new population growth in the city:

The outflow of residents comes amid a demographic boom in San Francisco, bringing The City’s population to heights never before seen. And according to figures released by the state Wednesday, the Bay Area is California’s fastest-growing region.

In 2013, San Francisco’s population increased by 1.3 percent, or about 10,000 residents, according to new numbers from the California Department of Finance. The City’s population now stands at 836,620.

That might not seem like a huge increase until you consider the population shift from 2000 to 2010. According to the 2000 census, San Francisco had 776,733 residents. By the 2010 census, that number had increased to 805,235.

More people have moved to The City in just the past three years than in the entire decade prior. READ THE FULL PIECE HERE .

Beyond Chron reports that some 75 companies including Salesforce, Expedia, and Yelp back the Ellis Act reforms now being considered in Sacramento that would prohibit landlords from using the Ellis Act until they had owned a building for at least five years.

The SF Business Times reports that Mayor Lee is getting some flack for being too close to the tech companies and too easy on them.

And in case you missed it, here is yesterday’s piece on the cricket team that plays every Monday in Garfield Park.

Enjoy the day!

    The issue with schools isn’t that there aren’t some good SFUSD schools in the city, but rather that your kids may not be admitted to one of them even though you make them your top choices and even though your top choice school might be right next door to where you live.

    So there are really only three options: Relocate, go private or enter the lottery and, if you lose, then relocate or go private.

    We decided to stay and go private. But I understand why many other families we know moved to the Peninsula or Marin. This city will continue to lose children as long as it has an antiquated school allocation system that is one small step removed from the discredited and now illegal policy of school busing.
