Source: Ravens knew extent of Rice incident hours after punch

A source within the Baltimore Ravens organization tells CNN that a Ravens official knew that former running back Ray Rice knocked out his now-wife and knew there was video evidence of it just hours after the incident occurred.

This latest information comes as embattled NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell broke his silence Friday to address the domestic abuse cases that have consumed his league over the past 10 days.

Speaking at a Manhattan news conference amid calls for his resignation, Goodell announced a sweeping policy to counter domestic abuse and sexual assault, mandating all players and staff on the league's 32 teams undergo education and training about how to prevent abuse.

All the uproar, started with the elevator surveillance video of Rice abusing his now-wife. A crime that initially cost rice just two games. Goodell apologized for failing his fans.

"I got it wrong in the handling of the Ray Rice matter and I'm sorry for that," Goodell said. "I'm not satisfied with the way we handled it from the get-go. I made a mistake. I'm not satisfied with the process we went through. I'm not satisfied with the conclusion."

Democrat, rising star Wendy Davis distances herself from Obama

Wendy Davis is hoping to become the first Democratic governor of Texas in 20 years.

Today, Hillary Clinton turned the spotlight on her and other women running in this year's midterm election.

Hillary Clinton tells liberals to focus on women

"We have so many reasons to be hopeful," Clinton said, during a roundtable at the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank. "Mary Burke gives me hope. Maggie Hassan gives me hope. Martha Coakley and Wendy Davis give me hope."

Davis' new memoir is a portrait of a woman unafraid to go it alone, whether taking on the Texas senate or turning her back on the President of the United States.

Alibaba's record-setting Wall Street debut

Investors went gaga for Alibaba today.

The Chinese e-commerce giant had Wall Street's biggest ever debut. Alibaba's stock was priced to start trading at $68 a share.

It closed at nearly $94 - a 38% jump.

At that price, the company is worth $231 billion. That's more than companies like Amazon and Facebook. It's a company that's broken records, but has a very humble beginning.
