Love, Peace, and Rock 'n Roll': Hair hits the REP stage this November


Hair, the first ever tribal love-rock musical on Broadway, is the year-end grand musicale of Repertory Philippines'(REP) 2017 season. Relive the rocking spirit of the 60's in this iconic production from November 17 to December 17 at the Onstage Theater, Greenbelt 1, Makati City. 

Set in the tumultuous 1960's. the twenty-somethings of New York City band together to form a tribe – the hippiest – as a cry of protest against the Vietnam War.

This free-spirited tribe, led by the charismatic Berger, inspires Claude to rebel against the war, his parents, and society, and to assert love, peace and freedom.

The angst and energy of the era is captured in the show's amazing musical score with classic hits like :"Let the Sun Shine In,"Ă„quarlus," and "Good Morning Starshine." Hair even won the 1969 Grammy Award for Best Score from An Original Cast Show Album, while its 2009 Broadway reveal earned the Toy Award for Best Revival of a Musical. 



In REP's version of this award-winning production, Markki Stroem alternates with George Schulze as Berger, Caisa Borromeo as Sheila, and a stellar cast of young performers. Chris Millado directs the grand musicale with Ejay Yatco as musical director.

NIDO® ADVANCED PROTECTUS® 3+: How Do You Show Your Love That Protects?

Manila, Philippines – "Love that Protects" has so many interpretations from moms and dads. As a parent, we all have our own ways to show our love and protection to our children. Being a parent is not an easy task and for sure a lot of us are so protective with our kids and so afraid to blink an eye when it comes to protecting them making sure of their safety.

Each of us has our own responsibilities to do – some works at home, go to the office, do household chores, and a lot more to mention. And of course, we also want our kids to enjoy childhood who are eager to go out, play with friends and explore a lot of things around them. Here comes us, so protective that sometimes we restrict them of activities because we can't be with them 24/7 to fulfill our responsibilities. 

The new NIDO® ADVANCED PROTECTUS® 3+ helps give them the confidence to do day-to-day activities without having to worry about their little ones. 

Loving protection like no other
NIDO® ADVANCED PROTECTUS® 3+ has Lactobacillus PROTECTUS®, with the probiotic strain L. Rhamnosus, which not only helps protect children's tummies but alsosupport their defense against pathogens in the upper respiratory tract.

In every 45g serving (4 tablespoons) of NIDO® ADVANCED PROTECTUS® 3+ and NIDO® ADVANCED PROTECTUS® 5+, there are at least one billion colony forming unit (cfu) of L. Rhamnosus present.

#LoveThatProtects in action
In a recent event at The Atrium, SM Megamall, NIDO® ADVANCED PROTECTUS® 3+ featured how it helps moms and dadsshow their children a love that protects through an suitably heart-shaped activity booth headline by interactive parent-child activities. 

I went with my daughter, Rain, and spent the day enjoying all the educational activities – evading the dangers of the forest through the sound-controlled game Shout for Love, hugging to catch yellow hearts at Catch the Love Bug, expressing our creativity by coloring templated artworks at Color Me Love, and stating our commitment through a mom and child handprint and answering the question "How do you show your love that protects?"


With confidence, I can say that every second of the day I know that my children are protected and loved.

Allianz and FC Bayern have kicked off the ninth Allianz Junior Football Camp this week, offering children from 25 nations the chance to learn and play with the best of the best. FC Bayern will again host the camp on its famous training grounds, this year taking place from August 17 to 22.

The Camp began with a lecture on Sports Psychology at the Hotel Limmerhoff in Taufkirchen, Munich, Germany.

A total of 54 girls and boys will benefit from exposure to top football trainers and players. For the first time, Allianz and the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation have partnered to enable a 17-year-old boy from Afghanistan take part in the Camp.





“This year´s camp takes the project one important step further, offering coaching for both physical and mental health and going further to encourage intercultural exchange. Allianz is entering its ninth year as sponsor of the camp as a proud advocate of health, community, adventure and team spirit,” said Oliver Kraus, Global Partnership Manager at Allianz SE.


Allianz is dedicated to encouraging its customers and future generations to fulfilling their dreams and will launch a 10-part video series documenting participants’ life stories and experiences at the camp. The webisodes offer glimpse into how the AJFC has improved their lives and will appear on the Allianz YouTube Channel.

With a monthly salary of only 40 euros, his mother was not able to afford a pair of football cleats, so Chandan pursued his passion – playing barefoot. In the video, he explains how the AJFC has changed his life: from playing barefoot to becoming a celebrity in this hometown, Chandan has been recognized by his school, home state and the central government authorities. He has even been shortlisted to represent the Baichung Bhutia Football Academy in the U-13 league team.
