The teddy bear has much more meaning than being used for comfort. The teddy bear was named after the 26th president, Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt. It was on a hunting trip in Mississippi in 1902 that involved an incident with a black bear. Other hunters had injured the bear and offered Roosevelt an opportunity to shoot the bear, but he refused and called it unsportsmanlike. This soon became the topic of a political cartoon by Clifford Berryman in The Washington Post on November 16, 1902. The creator of the teddy bear, Morris Michtom, saw a drawing of Roosevelt and became inspired. He started out with a tiny soft bear cub and put it in the shop window with a sign "Teddy's bear" after sending off and gaining permission to use his name. Almost immediately the toy became a huge success, and Michtom soon founded the Ideal Novelty and Toy Co. Another time in Germany, the Steiff firm, produced a stuffed bear from Richard Steiff's designs. He was completely unaware of Michtom's bear. Steiff exhibited his toy at the Leipzig Toy Fair in 1903 and was seen by Hermann Berg. Berg ordered 3000 bears to be sent to the US by records showed that they never arrived because the bears were shipwrecked. This meant that Michtom and Steiff never knew of each other's creations due to poor transatlantic communications. Teddy bears are meant to represent polar bears, grizzly bears, and panda bears. The material used today is a wide variety compared to what was used in the beginning.
The definition of content is, “(t)he circumstances that form the setting for an event, statement, or idea, and in terms of which it can be fully understood and assessed.” Why we lose most of what we learned in school is that we undervalue what we remember.
Often, however, we can remember what we learned but cannot remember where we learned it from. Therefore, retaining content is possible without remembering the context. Some knowledge that is gained in school is often forgotten because the subject is large, making it hard to recognize.
Some people retained information from what they learned when they were younger, but some have forgotten pieces of information. It all depends on how much we hold on to stuff and how much we study it long after we go to school.
