(RNN) – Former President George H.W. Bush is recovering in a Maine hospital after a fall at his Kennebunkport home. Spokesman Jim McGrath said Bush broke a bone in his neck, but the injury is not life threatening. The former president will be in a neck brace while he heals. Bush is 91. He served as president from 1989 to 1993 and as vice president during the Ronald Reagan administration. 

Direct from its engagement in Canada, high pressure will be the dominant feature in the weather story today. We'll be treated to much more in the way of sunshine than clouds and much drier air as temperatures climb only into the upper 70s.  Big changes on Friday include a hot, humid air mass that builds in quickly.  A strong south wind develops, humidity increases and along with them comes the risk of some storms as temperatures climb to around 90 degrees.

(RNN) – Overnight Tuesday, consumers could purchase a $200 gift card for $15 on the Best Buy website. The company fixed the glitch, but not before a few thousand people purchased the deal and their bank accounts were charged. Best Buy issued a statement on the glitch. Jeff Haydock, a Best Buy spokesman, confirmed that it was an error, according to the Minneapolis StarTribune.  "Everyone makes mistakes and, unfortunately, we made one last night," Haydock's statement said. "We regret the error and we are canceling all pending orders on the affected gift cards.” On the website Reddit, a user by the name "waitforben" posted: "I am an employee of Best Buy, and we are very good at honoring our mistakes, however, mistakes this public with 1000s of people ordering something super discounted by mistake will most likely get canceled. In the meantime, I went ahead and ordered two, but chances are, we're all getting a refund."
