Some of Notre Dame’s early admission applicants arrived on campus Saturday as part of Notre Dame’s 13th Reilly Weekend, a visitation program for the top 1 percent of prospective students.Junior Adam Farchone, who is part of the student planning committee for the event, said the weekend aims to show prospective students the character of Notre Dame. The weekend’s events — which included a stadium tour, a visit to the Center for the Homeless in South Bend and a group mass — gave participants a feel for everything the University has to offer, he said. Participants will be able to attend University classes today.“Reilly, as it stands, is a visitation weekend for students in the top 1 percent of the application pool from Notre Dame,” he said. “But this year, it’s really been expanded to just beyond the top 1 percent academically.”Although the program has not changed much over the years, Farchone said the criteria for accepted students has been more holistic this year than it has been in the past.“While all the students that are attending Reilly will have stellar grade point averages, additionally there is an unprecedented focus [this year] on community engagement as well as extracurriculars in school,” he said. “… So while it’s still the top 1 percent of the application pool, it’s more of a holistic view of the applicants, whereas in previous years it had been almost entirely based on academic involvement.”Freshman and committee member Rachel Warne said Reilly Weekend gives high school seniors, who are choosing between a handful of great schools, the opportunity to see Notre Dame as an attending student would.“I think that [Reilly Weekend] is an experience of Notre Dame you wouldn’t get to have if you just come visit and go on a tour and kind of walk around campus,” she said. “It’s kind of like the full experience.“You really get to see a lot more than you would get to experience if you came with your parents for one day as part of a bigger college tour. So, it’s nice because they get to have this deeper experience with Notre Dame, and they get to really understand what it’s all about, rather than kind of just the surface view.”Although stadium construction for Campus Crossroads led to some adjustments in the weekend’s events, freshman and committee member Katharine Janes said the University was still able to show students all the best things it has to offer.“It really makes you think about why is Notre Dame really spiritually active, why are athletics important, why are academics important and how can we showcase that to prospective students?” she said. “And also, I think that recruiting a student body that really values those things is important, so you’re recruiting students who will be reflective of that mission.”Farchone said his experience at Reilly Weekend as a high school senior was what ultimately convinced him to attend Notre Dame.“Reilly was really a chance to experience the tangible offerings of Notre Dame, and it was a great way to differentiate the University from other options that I was considering,” he said. “It really highlighted for me the community aspect of Notre Dame and the familial atmosphere, as well as the focus on the faith life and service.“There was a moment on my Reilly [weekend] when I looked around and thought to myself, ‘These are the people that I want to spend the rest of my life with,’ and I couldn’t envision myself going to any other University besides Notre Dame. And that’s what we’re hoping to recreate for these students, to show them that in the face of a secular world, it’s not a disadvantage to have attended a Catholic university. In many ways it’s actually an advantage for your personal well-being and your holistic development.”Tags: Prospective Students, Reilly Visitation Program, Reilly Weekend
The Bogor Correctional Board (Bapas) has rescinded the parole granted to John Refra Kei aka John Kei following his recent arrest for alleged involvement in violent attacks and premeditated murder.The board, that had supervised John during his parole, had coordinated with the Jakarta Police’s crime and violence unit since Sunday, said Rika Aprianti, the spokesperson of the Corrections Directorate General at the Law and Human Rights Ministry.On Wednesday, after Jakarta Police investigators completed their investigation report (BAP), the Bogor Correctional Board had completed its own report on John as their parole client. The next day, she said, the supervisory team of the board held a hearing to discuss John’s case and found that John had violated his parole requirements by being named a crime suspect.“The team recommended that his parole be revoked,” Rika said as reported by tempo.co on Saturday.Read also: Convicted murderer John Kei arrested for alleged attacks, murder after months released on paroleThe temporary decree on the parole revocation had been issued by the head of the Bogor Correctional Board with the final measure impending procedures from the Corrections Directorate General. John was serving 16 years of prison time for the murder of PT Sanex Steel Indonesia president director Tan Harry Tantono in 2013.He was arrested by the Jakarta Police on Sunday, around six months after being granted parole in December.

We recently went through a stretch of minimal running back upheaval, but since the start of Week 12, we’ve seen Melvin Gordon, James Conner, Matt Breida, and Chris Carson suffer notable injuries, Leonard Fournette get suspended for a game, Alex Collins placed on IR, and Kareem Hunt get released . Never mind all the typical performance-related stuff, those developments alone could send your fantasy playoff-bound squad into turmoil. Our Week 14 fantasy RB rankings does its best to sort through the mess (What’s a Jeff Wilson Jr.?), but there’s still a lot we don’t know early in the week.For now, we have Conner, Breida, Carson and Kerryon Johnson in our rankings but no Gordon. (Update: Breida is officially out for Week 14.) At this point, any of that group could be active and any could be inactive, so we won’t be stingy with the updates throughout the week. Both Conner (@ Raiders), Johnson (@ Cardinals), Gordon (vs. Bengals) will be especially important, as not only are they the best players, but they all have fantastic matchups. If they’re out, their backups (Jaylen Samuels, LeGarrette Blount, and Austin Ekeler/Justin Jackson) would be worthwhile sleepers and at least FLEX backs, if not RB2s. WEEK 14 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endWeek 14 Fantasy Rankings: RBThese rankings are for standard, non-PPR leagues1Christian McCaffrey, Panthers @ Browns2Alvin Kamara, Saints @ Buccaneers3Phillip Lindsay, Broncos @ 49ers4Aaron Jones, Packers vs. Falcons5Ezekiel Elliott, Cowboys vs. Eagles6Saquon Barkley, Giants @ Redskins Week 14 Rankings:Quarterback | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | KickerIn addition to the injury worries, there have been some downturns in recent weeks for Marlon Mack, Dion Lewis, and Jordan Howard. Mack remains the primary back for his team, giving him borderline RB2 value even in a fairly tough matchup against Houston, but Lewis (vs. Jaguars) and Howard (vs. Rams) seem to be on the shorter end of their committees, albeit in different ways. Lewis is losing touches to Derrick Henry despite having more all-around upside, while Howard is getting more carries than Tarik Cohen despite producing far less. Hopefully you’re not relying on any to keep your season alive, as it could be another unpredictable week.Note: These rankings will be updated during the week, so check back often for the latest analysis and player movement. MORE WEEK 14 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup Builder21James White, Patriots @ Dolphins. White 22LeSean McCoy, Bills vs. Jets. When these teams met in Week 10, McCoy had his only 100-yard performance and scored his only TDs of the season. With 18 and 19 touches, respectively, over the past two games, he’ll get enough work to do damage again.23Jaylen Samuels, Steelers @ Raiders. It’s unclear how the Steelers will divvy up touches in their backfield, but Samuels should be the primary back. The 6-0, 225-pound rookie is adept receiver, which will help pad his stats even if he doesn’t score. Stevan Ridley will also be involved, but Samuels has a good amount of upside against Oakland’s bottom-six fantasy RB defense.24Isaiah Crowell, Jets @ Bills. Crowell not only impressed with 21 carries and 98 rushing yards last week in a tough matchup against Tennessee, but he also surprised by catching four of five targets. He seems like the clear lead back over Elijah McGuire right now, and against the Bills, who allow the 11th-most fantasy points per game to RBs, he should be a solid RB2.25Dalvin Cook, Vikings @ Seahawks. Cook looked close to 100 percent last week, rushing nine times for 84 yards and catching eight passes for another 22. Seattle is tough against the run, but Cook can do damage on the ground and through the air. 26Marlon Mack, Colts @ Texans. Mack has really struggled last week, totaling 33 yards on nine touches. It was the second time this year he was shut down by the Jaguars, and even though the Texans aren’t quite as good against RBs, they’re not much worse. Mack should still get enough touches to have RB2/FLEX value, but it’s possible you have better options.27Justin Jackson, Chargers vs. Bengals. Jackson looked like the Chargers’ best back on Sunday night, and it seems likely he’ll get at least a few more touches if Melvin Gordon is out again. Against the Bengals, even 10 touches gives him RB2/high-end FLEX upside.28Doug Martin, Raiders vs. Steelers. Martin has scored in each of the past two games and has averaged at least 15 touches in his six games at Oakland’s starter. He came through in an equally tough matchup in Baltimore two weeks ago (72 total yards, TD), so he’s still in play as a FLEX here.29Jeff Wilson Jr., 49ers vs. Broncos. Wilson displayed solid skills as a runner (15-61) and receiver (8-73) last week in Seattle, and this matchup isn’t nearly as difficult on paper. Because the 49ers figure to activate Alfred Morris for this game, Wilson probably won’t see quite as many touches, but he should still lead the way in San Francisco’s backfield. 30Tevin Coleman, Falcons @ Packers. Coleman has only mustered 14 rushing yards on 14 carries the past two weeks, but he managed to have value in Week 12 thanks to a TD catch. The Falcons have rarely shown consistent usage patterns this year with their RBs, so it’s tough to project Coleman’s carries, but at least he’ll have a much more favorable matchup against a Packers defense that’s allowed seven RB touchdowns over its past six games.31Chris Carson, Seahawks vs. Vikings. A finger injury threatens Carson’s availability for this game, but even if he plays, he’ll have a tough time against a Vikings defense that has only allowed five RB touchdowns all year — two of which came last week by FB James Develin. 32Josh Adams, Eagles @ Cowboys. With 42 carries in his past two games, Adams is getting an elite workload, but he’s barely used in the passing game. The Cowboys have allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points and fourth-fewest rushing yards to RBs, so Adams might be a touchdown-or-bust FLEX.33Peyton Barber, Buccaneers vs. Saints. Barber finally produced in a tougher matchup last week, and in a game where offense figures to be easy to come by, he could easily punch in a short touchdown again. The season-long numbers say New Orleans is death on RBs, though (fourth-fewest fantasy points allowed), so proceed with caution.34Kenyan Drake, Dolphins vs. Patriots. See Frank Gore below.35Jordan Howard, Bears vs. Rams. Howard returned to a workhorse role last week, rushing 16 times for a respectable 76 yards. He’s always a candidate for a good game, but if he doesn’t score, you don’t know what to expect. That unpredictably — coupled with the possibility of Chicago throwing more given the matchup — has Howard moving down our rankings.36Dion Lewis, Titans vs. Jaguars. See Derrick Henry below.37Duke Johnson Jr., Browns vs. Panthers38Chris Thompson, Redskins vs. Giants39Elijah McGuire, Jets @ Bills40Royce Freeman, Broncos @ 49ers41Frank Gore, Dolphins vs. Patriots. Gore remained Miami’s “lead back” last week, rushing one more time that Kenyan Drake, but obviously the split was much more even. Drake remains the higher upside play given his explosiveness and receiving ability. The Pats have only allowed four RB rushing touchdowns all year, so it’s tough to find reasons to be optimistic about Gore this week.42Jalen Richard, Raiders vs. Steelers43Stevan Ridley, Steelers @ Raiders44Theo Riddick, Lions @ Cardinals45Derrick Henry, Titans vs. Jaguars. Henry might very well be Tennessee’s “lead back” again after out-carrying Dion Lewis 10 to six last week. He also scored for the fifth time in the past six games. The Jaguars are ultra-stingy against RBs, though, allowing the second-fewest fantasy points to the position, so Henry, who doesn’t figure to get much more than 10 touches, is still a fairly low-upside play. (Update: Or he’ll score four TDs. One of the two.)46Ito Smith, Falcons @ Packers47Alfred Morris, 49ers vs. Broncos48Rashaad Penny, Seahawks vs. Vikings49Kenneth Dixon, Ravens @ Chiefs50Giovani Bernard, Bengals @ Chargers51Nyheim Hines, Colts @ Texans52Corey Clement, Eagles @ Cowboys53Rex Burkhead, Patriots @ Dolphins54Latavius Murray, Vikings @ Seahawks55Alfred Blue, Texans vs. Colts56T.J.

Ekeler was a big disappointment last week (43 total yards), but he did get 18 touches. If Melvin Gordon (knee) is out again, Ekeler should get at least 12 touches against a Bengals defense allowing the most fantasy points to RBs. Justin Jackson could be in line for more carries after showing some burst last week, but Ekeler will still likely lead the way and have major upside.16Lamar Miller, Texans vs. Colts17Sony Michel, Patriots @ Dolphins18LeGarrette Blount, Lions @ Cardinals19Spencer Ware, Chiefs vs. Ravens. Ware totaled 15 touches as Kansas City’s starter last week against Oakland, and while he disappointed with 52 total yards, he managed to into the end zone and salvage his fantasy day. A much tougher matchup is on tap with Baltimore, but Ware will still be heavily involved. Given Kansas City’s high-powered attack, he’s always a threat for a big game and/or a touchdown.20Mark Ingram, Saints @ Buccaneers. Ingram is due for a bounce back against a Bucs defense allowing the fifth-most fantasy points to RBs. Even though the production has been down lately, it’s important to remember he’s still averaging 4.8 yards per carry and 9.0 yards per reception. WEEK 14 DFS GPP LINEUPS: Yahoo | DraftKings | FanDuel7Todd Gurley, Rams @ Bears8David Johnson, Cardinals vs. Lions. Johnson giving way to rookie Chase Edmonds for two short TDs last week was disturbing, but the veteran still had 21 touches compared to only seven for Edmonds. The Lions have been steadily improving against the run, but Todd Gurley reminded us last week that stud backs can still light them up. Expect a bounce-back performance from Johnson.9Gus Edwards, Ravens @ Chiefs. Even though he was dinged up entering last week’s game, Edwards ran 21 times for 82 yards. The results weren’t optimal, but the workload was elite. Against the Chiefs, who have been in the top five in fantasy points allowed to RBs most of the year, Edwards has big upside again.10Joe Mixon, Bengals @ Chargers11Nick Chubb, Browns vs. Panthers12Leonard Fournette, Jaguars @ Titans. Fournette had been on a roll prior to his Week 13 suspension, scoring five times in two-and-a-half games. The Titans are among the toughest teams for RBs to score against, but Fournette’s talent and volume still give him a high ceiling.
