The Rock Congratulates Young Offenders At Boot Camp Graduation

The Rock made a special appearance at a graduation ceremony held for youth offenders on August 17, 2015. They completed a six-month boot camp through the Miami-Dade County Corrections and Rebilitation Department. 

Johnson is currently filming a documentary called Rock & a Hard Place, which will give us a glimpse inside the challenging and life-changing program. He was able to connect with the youth offenders by sharing his personal story and telling them that it is possible to come out on the other side. “I got in trouble a lot when I was younger. By the time I was 16, I had been arrested eight or nine times for a variety of things, terrible things that I shouldn’€™t have been doing. But I had people in my life who saw the potential in me when I didn€’t see it. Much later in life, once I got out of college, I started to understand the power of seeing your potential and what that means,” says The Rock. 

A powerful thing happened today… The rate of recidivism in the U.S. prison system is over 70%. Meaning over 70% of inmates released from prison will commit a crime and return back to prison. Staggering. Here in Miami, we have one of the most hard core and unrelenting bootcamp prisons in the world. And our rate of recidivism is 8%. EIGHT PERCENT. I told these young men 6 months ago when they first arrived that the life they once knew, was over. That they would get broken down to their core – physically and mentally in ways they never imagined – but I also told them they would never break. Big difference. They never broke and today they graduate and become free men. Better men. Very proud of this program, its staff and the impact it has on our prison system and more importantly, caring about young lives that matter. Congratulations men. Just like we talked about.. be a leader, be disciplined and earn that respect. It’s all up to you. #DadeCounty #BootCamp #Graduation #AGreatDay

The Rock is a class act, see his empowering message to the men below. 

Big day today… 6 months ago these youth offenders all faced prison time anywhere from 5yrs to life for a variety of crimes ranging from armed robbery to attempted murder. In front of the judge on the day of their sentencing they accepted to be placed in an extremely hardcore one of kind bootcamp. I gave them my word on their first night that would be broken down in ways they never knew imaginable… but if they stuck with it and didn’t quit, they’d be built back up to become better men. That was 6 months ago. TODAY, in front of their families, drill instructors and judges they graduate and become free men. Stronger men. Better men. I’m very proud to show the world how impactful this one of a kind Dade County Bootcamp Program is and more importantly, proud to show the world how the lives of these young offenders matter. It’s your day men. Let’s graduate and have a lil’ fun. You’ve earned it! See you in a few hours. #DadeCounty #DeptOfCorrections #BootCamp #SevenBucksProds #HBO #RockAndAHardPlace #ChangeIsReal

Watch Ciara Spill About Her (Lack Of) Sex Life With Russell Wilson!

Ciara and Russell Wilson have publicly revealed that they HAVE NOT had sex.

And the singer has added that she and the Seattle Seahawks quarterback probably won’t consummate their relationship until after they’ve tied the knot!

[ Related: Ciara & Russell Aren't Worried About Her Ex, Future! ]

But on CBS This Morning, the 1, 2 Step performer gave us a glimpse into their celibacy story!

She admitted that refraining from getting it on with her main squeeze is certainly a “great challenge,” but it has allowed them to grow closer as a couple!

She says their relationship hasn’t been clouded by sex, which enables them to really build a solid foundation and develop a strong emotional connection that isn’t influenced by bedroom behavior.

She did, however, keep her lips sealed about the actual date she and Russell started seeing each other, but admitted they’ve been together for over half a year.

Ch-ch-check out her full interview (below), and listen to her dish deets about her current relationship, as well as her baby daddy drama with Future!

New Female Army Rangers Make History

army-ranger

For the first time in history, two women will be among the 96 graduates of the elite United States Army Ranger School. On Friday, August 21st, Capt. Kristen Griest and 1st Lt. Shaye Haver will become the first female soldiers ever to graduate from the Ranger course at Fort Benning, Ga, according to WashingtonPost.com. Both women are West Point graduates who withstood the gruesome weather, arduous hikes, sleep-deprived nights and simulated combat patrols that are designed to test their reaction time, teamwork and tenacity under fire, along with the other Rangers who went through the course, according to The Washington Post article.

This is the first year that the Army has allowed women to partake in the intense program on a trial basis and Griest and Haver were among 20 women (and 381 men) who started the program on April 20. As a test of their physical fitness, each candidate has to do 49 pushups, 59 sit-ups, and a 5-mile run all completed in 40 minutes. They must also be able to complete six chin-ups, a swim test, a land navigation test, a 12-mile foot march in three hours, several obstacle courses, four days of military mountaineering, three parachute jumps, four air assaults on helicopters, and 27 days of mock combat patrols.

According to a CNN.com article, the women will not be joining their fellow male graduates in the 75th Ranger Regiment, because women are still not allowed to serve in that combat unit. The Pentagon isn’t expected to make final decisions about what combat roles women will be allowed to fill until later this year. However, this achievement is still a huge step. These two soldiers have proven that women are in fact capable of meeting the extreme physical standards (and mental stress) that the rigorous course entails. These standards were not altered for the women who were taking part in the program. In order to graduate, soldiers need to perform many tasks under conditions with minimal food and little sleep that test both their physical and mental strength. Each candidate has to learn how to operate in different terrains ranging from mountains, to woodlands, to swamps. Congrats, Griest and Haver!

The Nook Daily Find features two novels by Earl Javorsky, only the first of which is price matched at Amazon; I’ve reported the lower price on the second and it may drop later today. If you are an X-Files fan, you’ll want to pick up Gillian Anderson’s debut novel, A Vision of Fire: Earthend Saga #1, co-written with Jeff Rovin. NonFiction readers will find their fix with the Audible Daily Deal, At the Edge of Uncertainty, which introduces you to some of the most controversial ideas of modern science.

Today on Amazon’s Gold Box, save 22% on a 32 GB Unlocked Amazon Fire Phone Bundle with select accessories. It also includes a full year of Amazon Prime…

In the Bonus Deal of the Day, save up to 89% on Stuhrling Men’s and Women’s Watches for $59.99 and up to 40% on Select Etón Flashlights and Emergency Lights.

Today’s Kindle Daily Deal is In Dark Places ($1.99), by Michael Prescott [Open Road Media Mystery & Thriller].

Book Description
Psychiatrist Robin Cameron seems on the verge of success with an experimental program that uses a magnetic helmet to trigger, then modify, old angers that cause criminal behavior. She has been working with a promising candidate for behavior modification, an atypical serial killer named Justin Gray. His murders of high school girls involved mixed motivation—he didn’t torture them or sexually molest them, and he has to drink to deal with death. Another very reluctant subject of her experimental treatment is LAPD Sergeant Alan Brand, who unwittingly admits to a cold-blooded killing while under Robin’s care. When Gray escapes and Robin’s teenage daughter, Megan, is kidnapped, Robin does not know whom to accuse—or whether there is something even darker, nastier, and more complicated afoot. The story takes place over a period of only two days, and the suspense does not let up until the last page.
