A guided walking-tour of Aleppo's major historic attractions took place on Friday, for the first time since the war-torn city was liberated from the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIL/ISIS). The tour marked the opening of the tourist season. Around 300 students from across the country alongside local citizens were spotted taking pictures at the compound of the Umayyad Mosque and in front of Aleppo's ancient citadel which is heavily damaged after five years of war. A special concert with music and dancing was later organised for Aleppo citizens at the amphitheater. Aleppo citizen and tour guide, Anushka Arakelyan, said that people hoped that the city "will be the same as it was before the war." "There are no nationalities here. All people love each other; all live together, rejoice together, cry together and wait together," she added.

It took a bit longer for the youth rock revolution to hit German televisions compared to the United States–where American Bandstand was already in existence pre-Elvis–and the United Kingdom, where Oh Boy debuted in 1958 as that country’s first pop show. But when German television premiered Beat Club in September 1965, it would profoundly change the culture. The show took its visual cues from both the UK–with its London Underground-aping logo–and the US, with its go-go dancers. It even borrowed some of its hosts from across the Channel, like Dave Lee Travis, who was working at pirate station Radio Caroline at the time. The show’s producer Michael Leckebusch was a more traditional man who preferred musicals to rock, but he knew his market, and he knew how to check the pulse of the scene, by attending The Star Club in Hamburg–one of the venues where the Beatles paid their dues.

The biggest stars in pop are getting older, and they're looking to their predecessors for inspiration. Consider the No. 1 album in the country the week ending May 18, One Direction star Harry Styles' self-titled solo debut, which pays homage to the rock gods of the last half-century, David Bowie, Queen and Pink Floyd. It became the best-selling debut from a U.K. male artist, moving an estimated 230,000 units. This may mark the first occasion many younger listeners, raised on candy-coated EDM beats, hear rock music that sounds conspicuously like what their parents used to listen to on the radio. Styles' female contemporaries, many of whom cut their teeth in the world of kids' TV, are charting this surprising course too. Selena Gomez's new single Bad Liar uses a prominent sample from Talking Heads' 1977 single Psycho Killer, earning the approval of that band's front man, David Byrne: I really like the song .

Apple is in the process of transitioning App Store pricing from the U.S. dollar and euro to local currencies in nine countries. The announcement was made last week on Apple's iTunes Connect resource page, and the first reports are coming through that the price changes are equating to small savings in some countries, owing to favorable exchange rates. App Store pricing in Romania is now showing in the country's Leu currency, which has made books, apps, and songs a little cheaper, according to iTutorial.ro . For example, an individual music track that cost 15,42 lei before the change, now costs 14,99. Small savings also extend to Apple Music and iCloud subscriptions. Similar subscription savings have been reported by ThinkApple in Poland, where many prices have been converted at a rate of 1 euro to around 4 zloty, which is currently lower than that offered by banks.

The majority of the attractions happen during the weekend, however the run up events can be just as fun. Kanda Matsuri is one of Tokyo’s three great Shinto festivals, and really should not be missed if you are visiting the country at the time. Yuki Matsuri Now, this is one festival you probably werent expecting. Yuki Matsuri is the snow festival, and is held in Sapporo every February. It is one of the largest winter events in the whole of Japan, and is visited by over two million people every year. This is one of the newer festivals in Japan, and originated 50 years ago when a group of high school students decided to create some sculptures in Odori Park. Nowadays, around 400 ice statues are on display, each more impressive than the last. Ice slides, a snow maze, and music performances can also be enjoyed during Yuki Matsuri. If you are planning a visit to Japan in the near future, it is well worth trying to visit while one of the above festivals is taking place.

The poll also shows voters tilting against Trump firing Comey: 33 percent say his decision was appropriate, while 41 percent say it was inappropriateroughly equal to a week ago. Trump and his aides have provided different explanations for why the president dismissed Comey, but more voters believe he “wanted to hinder the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s alleged involvement in the 2016 presidential election” (47 percent) than think Trump “no longer believedComey was fit to lead the FBI” (34 percent). Our latest polling finds that Americans are not only divided in how to react to the latest news out of Washington, they're divided over what the news is, said Dropp. For example, 76 percent of Democrats think President Trump fired FBI Director Comey to hinder the Russia investigation, while just 17% of Republicans agree. The poll was conducted prior to Monday’s bombing of a pop music concert in England, but it does show voters divided sharply on Trump’s ability to “keep the country safe from terrorism.
