50th Anniversary of the British Invasion

What do The Beatles, One Direction, Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith have in common? They are popular and British.

The British Phenomenon occurred in 1960's, when rock and pop music acts from the United Kingdom,as well as other aspects of British culture became popular in the United States. This was significant to the rising "counterculture" on both sides of the Atlantic. Pop and rock groups such as The Beatles, The Dave Clark Five, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, Herman's Hermits and The Who were at the forefront of the invasion.

The British Invasion had a profound impact on popular music, internationalizing the production of rock and roll, establishing the British popular music industry as a viable centre of musical creativity, and opening the door for subsequent British performers to achieve international success. In America the Invasion arguably spelled the end of instrumental surf music, pre-Motown vocal girl groups, the folk revival (which adapted by evolving into folk rock), and (for a time) the teen idols that had dominated the American charts in the late 1950s and 1960s.

Now, as 2015 marks the 50th Anniversary of the British Invasion, six bands will be coming over to manila in a one night only performance. Almost two hours of superb and top charting hits that will be performed by The Tremeloes, The Troggs, Marmalade, The Animals, Mike Pender’s Searchers and Spencer Davis.

The Animals who began in Newcastle as the Kansas City Five were a major influence among R&B-based British bands in the early Sixties. The band moved to London upon finding fame in 1964. The Animals were known for their gritty, bluesy sound. The band balanced tough, rock-edged pop singles against rhythm and blues-oriented album material. Some of their greatest hits are “House of the Rising Sun”, “I’m Crying”, “We Gotta Get Out Of This Place” and “It’s My Life”.

The Marmalade was a Scottish pop rock group from the east end of Glasgow, originally formed in 1961 as the Gaylords, and then later billed as Dean Ford and the Gaylords. In 1966, they changed the group name to The Marmalade. The most successful period for the band, in terms of UK chart success was between 1968 and 1972. Hits do include “Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da”, “Loving Things” and “Reflection of My Life”.

Mike Pender’s Searchers was the voice of the Searchers, one of the most influential band to come out of Liverpool in the early 1960’s. Pender also played the trademark Jangly Rickenbacker twelve string riffs on such quintessential hits as “Needles and Pins” which gave way to the West Coast folk-rock revolution closely identified with the Byrds. Garnering UK#1 hit in the 1963, “Sweets for my Sweets”, “Sugar and Spice”, “Love Potion No.9” and “Don’t Throw Your Love Away” are some of the recognizable and adored songs of this group.

Spencer Davis produced some of the most dynamic R&B singles of the sixties, hailing from Wales, Spencer founded the famed Spencer Davis Group in 1963, producing a dozen top 10 hit songs, helping to bring British rock n’ roll to the rest of the world. Hits include “Gimme Some Lovin”, “Keep on Running” and “Somebody Help Me”.

The Tremeloes was a band chosen by Decca Records over the Beatles when they both audition for the recording company on New Year’s Day, 1962. Decca Records chose the Tremeloes over the newcomers because, as a London based outfit, they would be more easily accessible. The Tremeloes did produce some hits for Decca Records, ultimately placing thirteen songs in the British top forty. Some of the hits of the band were “Twist and Shout”, “Do You Love Me”, “Here Comes My Baby” and “Silence is Golden”.

Last band on the tour list is The Troggshave continued to embrace both hard rock and alternative music during their more than 45 years together. The Troggs is an abbreviation of their original name the Troglodytes meaning cavemen.

The British Invasion concert is presented by Resorts World Manila in cooperation with Redstone Media Productions Inc.

Zsa Zsa Padilla and Paul Soriano trusts Neurobion® for their Overall Nerve Health

Today marks the launch of Neuropathy Awareness Movement. Neurobion®, the World’s #1 B Vitamins*, takes the lead in fighting against Neuropathy by increasing public awareness of neuropathy’s nature, scope, and the need for early intervention. The Neuropathy Awareness Movement helps others learn about and understand the challenges of living with Neuropathy.

A recent study reveals that 1 out of 3 people may suffer from Neuropathy or nerve damage as age progresses. Neurobion® helps improve the lives of those afflicted, and prevent future millions from suffering. Neurobion®, recognizes the importance for nerve care. Trusted by doctors for over 40 years, Neurobion® has a balanced formulation of Vitamins B1, B6 and B12 and is clinically proven to nourish the nerves and acts at the root of the problem.

The Threat of Nerve Damage

Neuropathy is also known as peripheral neuropathy or neuritis. It is a condition caused by nerve damage that may result from illnesses such as diabetes, injuries, infections or exposure to various toxins.

Neuropathy can affect people who have an unbalanced diet and unhealthy lifestyle which includes smoking and high alcohol intake, those who have suffered injuries or have diabetes.

Numbness, tingling and burning sensations, mostly felt in hands and feet, are common signs of nerve damage or a condition called Neuropathy. Contrary to the common belief that only old and mature people experience nerve damage, younger people can also experience and be prone to this condition.

“Because the symptoms of Neuropathy are too common, people tend to brush them off completely or associate them with a different condition. However, what we don’t know is that a lot of people are already suffering from Neuropathy and their heath cases remain unreported or undiagnosed. This is what we want to change because we want people to prioritize the health of their nerves the same way that they take care of their other organs,” explains Merck Inc., Philippines Medical Director Dr. Gio Barangan.

Fighting Neuropathy

People can prevent nerve damage as early as they can by maintaining a balanced diet, following an active lifestyle and taking B-Vitamin Complex daily. The roles of vitamins B1, B6 and B12 are important in the health of the nervous system.

Neuropathy Awareness Movement

Neurobion® proudly takes on the advocacy of raising awareness on Neuropathy and the role of B Vitamins in overall nerve health. To reach out to a younger market and more people, the brand engaged director and producer Paul Soriano and TV actress, singer and celebrity mom Zsa Zsa Padilla as ambassadors for raising awareness.

Live a Worry-free Life with MediCard

Everybody has worried about something in their lives. I’m one of those individuals who is often preoccupied with “what ifs”. I have learned in my younger years to prepare for worst-case scenarios. Doing so can help me identify problems early on and take control of my life. I find that worrying can sometimes be helpful as it spurs one to take action and solve a problem even before it materializes.

You see, I lost my father in 1987. He was in the pink of his health at 39 years old. Our family never thought that a traumatic incident at home would strike and require him to be in Intensive Care Unit (ICU). His cost of basic care quickly added up and skyrocketed us into the pits of bankruptcy in 4 days. Our family was dumbfounded then with circumstances that have changed overtime! This situation placed us in financial difficulties and future uncertainty.

My early life experience had taught me to take care of myself and family by preparing for the future. I learned that with the right HMO plan, I may be able to protect myself from most of these risks and other types of medical bills. I have invested in a healthcare coverage the moment I joined the workforce and I'm planning to enroll my entire family for HMO coverage as well.

It is a cliché that people today think that treasuring one's health is the most important thing. The saying "Health is Wealth" generally translates that part of being wealthy is staying healthy. And having good health insurance/coverage provides you with an affordable way to get medical care when you need it. When you realize the cost of worrying on your energy and your health (like I did mine), it really makes sense to be covered.

While there is nothing permanent in this life, having MediCard helps ease my unrelenting doubts and helps me look at life from a more positive perspective. Why do I need to worry when I have access to affordable care?

Aspiring young models take the centerstage at the Total Girl Model Academy 2015

The exciting model lifestyle appeals to a lot of young women nowadays and this entices them to model. A bevy of tweens between the ages of 8 and 14 flocked to the Total Girl Model Academy today at the Glorietta Activity Center to make that jump.

The first and only lifestyle magazine for tween girls held this event to teach them everything they should know about modeling. The Total Girl Model Academy gives girl model aspirants the valuable skills that are important in ensuring their survival in the modeling business.

More than 190 young hopefuls went through a series of workshops before the go-see finale. Each participant received a passport upon entering the venue, which guided them through the different stages. Each stage was led by professional mentors who helped them hone their styling and modelling skills.

The first stage was the styling studio where they discovered their own style. Raizel Dy, a fashion stylist and make-up artist who worked in some of the country’s fashion magazines, imparted stylish ideas that the girls can improve on to help them shine bright.

Then at the second stage, they proceeded to the catwalk class where they flaunted their styles through ramp modelling, proper posture, and personality coaching with Ning Corteza, an instructor of runway modelling, imaging, and visual posing.

How to rule in print was next at the third stage. Girls learned basic camera posing where they found their best angle with the help of Photography Coach Heidi Aquende, a commercial and editorial photographer.

The fourth stage gave them a chance to practice what they learned from the previous stages. The photo booth produced “comp cards,” otherwise known as model’s set cards, for participants to take home as souvenirs.

The last stage is the final test of this event: the go-see. On the runway, the aspirants applied everything that they’ve learned from the entire workshop. They did their best in front of a panel of judges, who were looking for the next, sweet young thing.

The editorial team of Total Girl will choose 10 winners to be featured in Total Girl’s September 2015 Fashion and Beauty issue. Aside from being featured, the winners will also get special prizes from the sponsors. The winners will be announced on the May 29th and will be contacted directly by the Total Girl team.


Total Girl Model Academy is a great opportunity to empower young girls to live their best tween lives ever---being confident, cool, and fun! This is definitely one memorable summer experience for all who joined in.
