5 Things

1. Calling All 12s
Bellevue Recess
November 11 | 5:15 – 8:00 pm | Cépaé
Watch the Seahawks take on the 49ers at the next Bellevue Recess. Guests will enjoy wine, snacks, and the game on the big screen.
In honor of Veterans Day, active and retired military attend free.
2. Micro to Macro
Economic Forecast Breakfast
November 15 | 7:00 – 9:00 am | Hyatt Regency Bellevue
Joe Quinlan, Chief Market Strategist with Bank of America, returns to the Economic Forecast to share his candid insights on the forces shaping the national and global economy.
3. One Week to Be Counted
Seven short days to election day! The Seattle Times has recently run profiles on Bellevue races:
Position 3 and 5
Position 1 and 7
. The Eastside Business Alliance, sponsored by the Chamber, has backed a full slate of pro-business candidates for local office. 
4. A Pivotal Moment
Pivotal Commware
, a metamaterials startup backed by Bill Gates, has secured financing to help roll out antennas for 5G wireless data services. One line of antenna is due to be shipped out beginning in December and should start appearing next year.
5. Bow Down to Marketing
The NCAA Board of Governors voted unanimously to “permit students participating in athletics the opportunity to benefit from the use of their name, image and likeness in a manner consistent with the collegiate model.” 
While light on specifics, this news possibly preempts a law suit on the matter while opening the doors for student-athletes to personally profit from the highly-lucrative industry of college sports.
