The Radical Reels Tour heads for the Rio

With summer coming to a close, and school nearly back in session, the UC Santa Cruz Recreation department is getting its game face on with its annual screening of National Geographic’s Radical Reels Tour. The featured short films allow us to bear witness to some of the world’s most serious adrenaline seekers as they bike tough trails, paddle wild waters, and ski treacherously steep slopes. The film screening will take place on Saturday, Sept. 22 at 7 p.m. at the Rio Theatre, and will highlight some of the most outrageous mountain sport films from the 36th Annual Banff Mountain Film Festival, which, of course, aim to thrill and inspire with mind-blowing big-screen adventures.   

“We have been hosting Radical Reels for over five years now,” says Kathy Ferraro, UCSC recreational supervisor, “and it’s become a fun part of Welcome Week Events.”

Ferraro says that the UCSC men’s and women’s soccer teams have used the event as a fundraiser in past years. “This year we decided to take it to the community again and to use the revenue to support our ever-growing need for student scholarships in our Recreation Program on campus,” explains Ferraro. The event attracts roughly 300 to 400 students and community members each year, and is used primarily as a fundraiser.

“In the past, most of our revenue has actually come from our sponsors and not from ticket sales,” Ferraro says. “This year we hope to do both.”


Radical Reels will screen on Saturday, Sept. 22 at 7 p.m. at the Rio Theatre, 1205 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. Tickets are $12 for students and $15 for general admission. For tickets, visit santacruztickets.com or call UCSC Recreation 459-2806, Pacific Edge Climbing Gym 454-9254, or Family Cycling Center 475-388. Visit radicalreels.com for more information.

We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident

Saturday, July 4, is the 239th birthday of the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence (the U.S. astrology chart has Aquarius moon—freedom for its people, by its people). Cancer, a liberating and initiating sign, is the “gate” where Spirit enters matter. Cancer receives and distributes Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence) and Ray 7 (new rules, new rhythms, new free nation under God). Cancer represents an intelligent freethinking humanity that can and must create right economics for the world. This means a policy of sharing, an opportunity for the U.S. when Venus (money, resources, possessions, etc.) retrogrades July and August in Leo (the heart of the matter). The United States has a unique spiritual task for the world: to lead humanity within and toward the light, accomplished by its people who must first awaken to this task, learn discrimination and be directed by the soul to assume the Herculean task of spiritual world leadership. Let us review the first words of our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.” Let us form that union together. The following is a review of the spiritual tasks for each sign. Read all the signs. They all apply to everyone.
