First-time entrepreneurs in Arkansas have a new online tool that was constructed to help them navigate the process of opening a business. The Arkansas Secretary of State has partnered with the Information Network of Arkansas to launch a website, DreamItDoItArkansas.com, to make potential business owners aware of the requirements to be met before opening a business. The site launched Wednesday. When entrepreneurs come to the site, they are asked five questions.

Cars like the Genesis already have automated emergency braking installed for instances like when it detects a car close ahead during cruise control. Hyundai is simply taking that ability, and meshing it with the map of speed cameras in its navigation software.
