Why Ahnold failed as Governor of California?
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows.
This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.

The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California.
