Hello everybody my name is Tom Hanks, class of 1974. Welcoming you all to George C. Bliss Field for your graduation ceremonies from the class of 2020.

All right, this is not George C. Bliss Field, as you know, and you are not there at the grounds of . You’re not near your locker in the twenty building, or the thirty building. You’re not taking electronics over in the ten building or the math and the sciences. There, way out in the 60-70 building, my locker was in the 40 building. couldn’t have been more boring a building the 40 building.

That’s just my opinion.

But, from the gym to the portables. From Selmer Berg Auditorium to George Sibley’s field, welcome and congratulations! You chosen ones somewhere, out of the fate of every high schooler, you guys were picked to graduate this year. In the year 2020. To start off this next chapter of your lives in the face, and in the midst, of so much change.

Good luck to you.

I’d like to think that just as provided me with a direction and an instinct to follow, the same has happened for you. Good luck to you, and also congratulations for having gotten through these years of struggle which will – they will I think – lead to ultimately, the triumph, as you pursue your heart’s desire.

Follow those instincts, and always understand that you have been chosen by fate to lead the way. And whatever our post Pandemic is going to be. Make it a great one, would you? We’re all relying on you.

I want to throw out some major shoutouts through the Student Body President Teddy “Mates” Munchin: way to go Ted man! Ted Meister!

The student body VP was a Sata Spence Guyard, who I think, went at those duties tooth and nail!

The senior class vice president, of course, was Jessica Canteal. Bravo! And the senior class present Hezekiah Pemberton – and if there is a name that is going places I think is Hezekiah Pemberton.

Those cool cats and kittens, did something great in their senior year – if only binding it up and representing you when the time came.

Also, let’s hear it for those great co-principals that are up there at Skyline High, on Skyline Drive, with this view of the skyline of the Bay Area: Nicole Pierce and Dr. Bianca D’Allesandro.

It’s 2020, you’re on their way, and you have achieved something that is not to be discounted. You made it! You did not give up! You have been the best example for the rest of us to keep going with faith, and hope with hard work. And with no small amount of faith in the serendipity that is coming your way.

Good luck to you all! Congratulations! And let us all be a part of the grand group that is called the alumni of 2020!

Hola a todos, mi nombre es Tom Hanks, clase de la escuela secundaria Skyline de 1974. Les doy la bienvenida a todos a George C. Bliss Field para sus ceremonias de graduación de la clase de 2020.

Bien, este no es George C. Bliss Field, como ustedes saben, y no están allí en los terrenos de . No estás cerca de tu casillero en el edificio veinte o en el edificio treinta. No vas a tomar la electrónica en el edificio de diez o las matemáticas y las ciencias. Allí, en el edificio 60-70, mi casillero estaba en el edificio 40. No podría haber sido más aburrido un edificio del edificio 40.

Esa es solo mi opinión.

Pero, desde el gimnasio hasta los portátiles. Desde el Auditorio Selmer Berg hasta el campo de George Sibley, ¡bienvenidos y felicitaciones! Ustedes eligieron algunos en algún lugar, fuera del destino de cada estudiante de secundaria, ustedes fueron elegidos para graduarse este año. En el año 2020. Para comenzar este próximo capítulo de sus vidas en la cara y en medio de tantos cambios.

Buena suerte para ti.

Me gustaría pensar que así como me dio una dirección y un instinto para seguir, lo mismo ha sucedido para ti. Buena suerte para ti y también felicitaciones por haber superado estos años de lucha que, creo ellos, te llevarán finalmente al triunfo, mientras persigues el deseo de tu corazón.

Sigue esos instintos y siempre comprende que has sido elegido por el destino para liderar el camino. Y sea lo que sea nuestro mundo posterior a la pandemia. Que sea genial, ¿quieres? Todos confiamos en ti.

Quiero lanzar algunos agradecimientos importantes a través del Presidente del Cuerpo Estudiantil, Teddy “Mates” Munchin: ¡camino a seguir, hombre de Ted! Ted Meister!

¡El vicepresidente del cuerpo estudiantil era un Sata Spence Guyard, quien creo que fue a esos deberes con uñas y dientes!

La vicepresidenta de la clase superior, por supuesto, era Jessica Canteal. ¡Bravo! Y la clase mayor presenta a Ezequías Pemberton, y si hay un nombre que está yendo a lugares, creo que es Ezequías Pemberton.

Esos gatos y gatitos geniales hicieron algo grandioso en su último año, aunque solo lo vincularan y representaran a ustedes cuando llegara el momento.

Además, escuchemos a esos grandes co-directores que están allá arriba en Skyline High, en Skyline Drive, con esta vista del horizonte del Área de la Bahía: Nicole Pierce y la Dra. Bianca D’Allesandro.

Es 2020, estás en camino y has logrado algo que no se debe descartar. ¡Lo hiciste! ¡No te rendiste! Ustedes han sido el mejor ejemplo para que el resto de nosotros sigamos adelante con fe y esperamos con trabajo arduo. Y con no poca cantidad de fe en la casualidad que se avecina.

¡Buena suerte a todos ustedes! ¡Felicidades! ¡Y seamos todos parte del gran grupo que se llama ex alumnos de 2020!

Note from Media and Oakland Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a ger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland Now site and -created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of , interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the and within seconds and not hours. Now, is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
