ITUNES-ANNIVERSARY

NEW YORK â¿¿ When Apple launched its iTunes music store a decade ago amid the ashes of Napster, the music industry â¿¿ reeling from the effects of online piracy â¿¿ was anxious to see how the new music service would shake out. As iTunes, now music's biggest retailer, celebrates its 10-year mark Sunday, it faces renewed scrutiny on how it will continue to dominate in the next decade â¿¿ or whether it can. By Entertainment Writer Nekesa Mumbi Moody.

HOLLYWOOD IN CHINA

Coming soon to a theater near you: China's Communist Party. From demanding changes in plot lines that denigrate the Chinese leadership, to dampening lurid depictions of sex and violence, Beijing is having increasing success in pressuring Hollywood into deleting movie content Beijing finds objectionable. It's even getting American studios to sanction alternative versions of films specially tailored for Chinese audiences, like "Iron Man 3," which debuts in theaters around the world later this week. The Chinese version features local heartthrob Fan Bingbing, absent from the version showing abroad, and lengthy clips of Chinese scenery that local audiences love. By Peter Enav.

FOOD-GAS DRILLERS' DELIGHTS

PENNSDALE, Pa. â¿¿ The land of scrapple and chipped ham is starting to get a taste for jambalaya and boudin. Thanks to an influx of Southerners filling jobs in north-central Pennsylvania's booming natural gas industry, a region not often placed on many culinary maps is finding itself flush with the foodways found below the Mason-Dixon line, arguably the source of some of the nation's richest culinary traditions. Suddenly, convenience stores stock sweet tea, barbecue is a hot seller, and the almost Norman Rockwell-quaint Country Store in Pennsdale even makes its own boudin, a pork sausage popular in Louisiana.
