As that long second sentence shows, academic papers are filled with dense language. The authors pulled a sort of “ how do you do, fellow kids ,” by throwing in some new slang. The problem with memes and language that starts on the internet is that it’s always changing. Pepe the Frog went from being a cartoon frog that was shapable for various meme purposes, to being one of the most recognizable symbols of the alt-right and white supremacy. Likewise, “derp” has changed meanings over time. The Oxford Living Dictionary defines it as a noun meaning “foolishness or stupidity.” But there are variations like “ merpy derp ” which Urban Dictionary defines as “a word used when a fucking idiot is speaking.” Other variations, like derp face , is defined on the website with offensive ablist language that associates a facial expression that “often involves eyes turned in different directions and a stupid smile” with people with disabilities.
Research conducted by the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry on black bear food habits, and habitat use in the central Adirondacks has shown that raspberry abundance is 48 times higher, and pin cherry production 37 times higher, on managed private timberlands when compared with unmanaged public Park land. Although beechnut production was greater on unmanaged lands within the Park, managed timber stands also produced high numbers of beechnuts, and greater numbers of juneberries, elderberries, and blackberries. During the spring and summer bears preferred managed timberlands over unmanaged lands. Bears used managed and unmanaged lands equally during the fall. Wetland areas and fire succession stands found on both private and public lands within the Park were also important food producing areas used by bears periodically during the spring, summer, and fall.
