mood your hometown and even whether you’re a friend or an enemy Now a group of French researchers has figured out which vocal intonations make a person sound more trustworthy or competent using a new computer program that can transform the pitch patterns of our voices First the researchers built their own voice processing software which they used to create hundreds of random intonations of a recording of the word “bonjour”—“hello” in French—by both male and female speakers Then they asked two groups of about 20 volunteers each to listen to about 700 pairs of recordings; they used their responses to reconstruct optimal pitch patterns for both trustworthiness and competence The team found that listeners clearly associated specific intonations with each social trait regardless of their own gender or that of the speaker they reported this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Female recording of a confident “bonjour” Male recording that inspires trust The differences between recordings are subtle; in the lab it almost seems that the listeners are just picking randomly says study co-author Jean-Julien Aucouturier of CNRS France’s national research agency in Paris “They can’t explain [their choices] but they all have the same mental representation in their head” he adds One consistent feature of competent voices was that they would descend in pitch; trustworthy voices would rise quickly at the end of the word Because the different intonations are generated by a software (freely available to other researchers and to anyone who wants to play with it) rather than an actor the method could be applied to other languages or cultures It could also be used one day to assess brain stroke patients who typically have difficulty making social judgements based on a person’s intonationThe Green Wave earned the fourth seed in the Minnesota State High School League State Tournament for the Class A division after winning the section 8A

instead of tax cutsDeputy House Minority Leader Paul Marquart DFL-Dilworth said the House GOP tax plan would spend $5 in tax cuts for every $1 increase in education spendingThe House and Senate kept many of the provisions from last year’s legislation but supersized itThere certainly are similarities among the three tax plans but with a $1 billion gap massive differences are evidentOne of the biggest differences comes in taxing Social Security benefitsThe House-passed bill approved 80-52 last week offers a $269 million break for those receiving the federal retirement fund payments Senators on Monday approved cutting the tax $75 million while Dayton does not have it on his listGOP legislative leaders say they are taking a first step that could lead to eliminating income taxes on Social Security payments all together Some Democrats warn that the action could result in a gap in state tax collections because as ages increase tax collections will fallThe Social Security tax cuts come from broader income tax plans The House proposed cutting income taxes $586 million with a variety of breaks such as for education credits education savings plans and college loansSenators’ legislation

Chamberlain saidThe three tax plans mostly agree on the most-discussed provision replacing some farmland property taxes with state money for part of a school construction assessmentDayton would set aside $34 million for the farmland issue in the next two years slightly less than the Senate In both cases the provision would reduce farm property taxes collected for school construction by 40 percentThe House would cover half of the construction costs charged to farmland with $44 million for 240000 farmers"Farmers have been smothered under a rising tide of property tax levies" House Property Tax Chairman Steve Drazkowski R-Mazeppa saidDrazkowski said the 2017 bill is "step one of a two-step process" to be followed by eliminating all school construction levies from farmlandLocal government state aid also is folded into the tax bill under the theory that more state aid keeps down local property taxesThe House keeps state aid at about the same level as in the current budget while the Senate bill would boost the payments about $20 million and the governor wants to add $30 millionDavids said that his bill helps cities and counties by eliminating sales tax they payOn Monday Senate DFL’ers strongly but unsuccessfully argued against a provision in the Republican-written tax bill that would provide scholarships to some children to attend other schools Democrats said the

Grossell R-Clearbrook "Our tax relief package is aimed at relieving the burden felt by middle-class Minnesotans Families with young children seniors and students are among those middle-class
