To the True Meaning
The theme of this paper is to dissect the first fight scene; in the movie Bull Durham, between Crash Davis; who is played by Kevin Costner; and "Nuke" LaLoosh; who is played by Tim Robbins. The fight takes place in a bar scene between these two men who have never met before. The reason for the fight is that Crash Davis is talking to a women by the name of Annie Savoy who is sitting at one of the tables. Nuke already believes that Annie is going to be with him all season long, but Crash believes otherwise.
In the beginning of the scene Nuke is dancing with all of the women in the bar while Crash is sitting alone in the corner of the bar. Crash then orders a drink for Annie, and is then asked by Annie to come over and sit by her. Crash introduces himself to Annie and tells her that he is the new catcher on the Durham Bulls baseball team. At the same time Nuke comes over and ask Annie to dance, but Crash stands up and says that she is dancing with him. When Crash stands up in front of him, Nuke takes this as a challenge and he asks Crash if he wants to take it outside. At this point Nuke still does not know that Crash is his new catcher. While Nuke is waiting for Crash outside, Crash begins to wonder how he is going give Nuke his first lesson to make it to the majors.
When Crash finally comes outside he sees that Nuke is standing in the
middle of the street. Nuke is not alone he has the entire baseball team standing behind him. First, Crash says that he does not want to fight him. When Crash says this everyone else begins to tease Crash. Next, Crash tells Nuke to throw the first punch, but Nuke refuses to. So instead, Crash tells Nuke to throw a baseball as hard as he can right at Crash\'s chest. When Nuke hears this everyone around him including himself begin to laugh, because they know how hard Nuke can throw and that it could kill Crash if it hit him in the chest or the head.
During this entire time Crash is keeping a cool head. He knows that the chance of Nuke hitting him is very small. Also, he tells Nuke that he won\'t be able to do it because he is beginning to think about it. Crash goes so far as to say that Nuke\'s aim is so bad that he could not hit water if he fell out of a boat. Crash also says that his million dollar body could do it, but its his five cent head that is holding him back. Finally, Nuke becomes so upset that he throws the ball at Crash, but misses and ends up breaking a window. Crash looks at the hole that Nuke just made and say ball four. When Crash says this, Nuke comes at him and tries to punch him. Before he can, Crash punches him right in the nose and causes him to fall to the ground. After Crash knocks him to the ground, he introduces himself to Nuke as his new catcher and helps him up. In the end, Crash invites Nuke back inside for a beer and to talk.
The number of communicational concepts that appear in this short interaction is very high. The mental distractions that are present in this
argument are factual distractions and semantic distractions. A factual distraction occurs when someone focuses so intently on details that they miss the main point. This is exactly what Crash\'s intentions were when he was trying to make fun on Nuke in front the rest of the baseball team. Nuke was so angry at Crash for calling him names and insulting him that he could not hit Crash with the baseball. The other mental distraction that occurs is semantic. A semantic distraction occurs when someone over responds to an emotion-laden word or concept. Crash also brings this upon Nuke when Crash says to Nuke "Your just pissing away that million dollar body of yours with that five cent head."

Holy Year of JubileeHoly Year of Jubilee Holy Year of Jubilee The ultimate derivation of the word jubilee is disputed, but it is most probable that the Hebrew word jobel, to which it is traced, meant a ram's horn , and that from this instrument, used in proclaiming the celebration, a certain idea of rejoicing was derived. Further, passing through the Greek iobelaios, or iobelos, the word became confused with the Latin jubilo, which means to shout , and has given us the forms jubilatio and jubilaeum, now adopted in
