The fact that she [Lindelani] was the one to venture out — I always thought it would be the bigger ones,” Blackney said. “It will be interesting to see who will take the lead and who will be the most adventurous.” Abagebe was bred with Jabulani. Both were born at a South African wildlife facility and arrived at the zoo in 2012. The babies are important to zoos nationwide and to conservation efforts, said Ron Surratt, director of animal collections at the Fort Worth Zoo, because they are a completely new bloodline in the U.S. and Abagebe and Jabulani are not related. “That is good for the population,” Surratt said.

Analysis of “Shiloh” In the short story, “Shiloh,” by Bobbi Ann Mason, published in, Shiloh and Other Stories, a woman named Norma Jean explores the ideas of female power and independence in the 1980s. She takes up body building, piano and furthers her education in an attempt to gain freedom. The relationship Norma Jean has with her husband, Leroy, is not considered normal because Norma Jean does a substantial part of the money because Leroy can no longer work.
