SAJA (@sajaHQ) and CPJ (@PressFreedom) present a conversation about the state of press freedom in Pakistan. Join Umar Cheema, who won this year's International Press Freedom Award from the Committee to Protect Journalists, and Bob Dietz, CPJ's Asia director as they talk about what's happening in Pakistan today. More on Cheema below.
Umar Cheema, a reporter with Islamabad's The News, was abducted in September 2010 by unknown assailants who stripped, beat, and photographed him in humiliating positions. Cheema's unwillingness to stay silent about his abduction and the abuses he suffered has drawn wide attention to the nationwide issue of anti-press violence in Pakistan.
Almost immediately after he was released, Cheema went on television to tell the world of the abuses and humiliation he endured at the hands of "men in police commando uniforms." He said his captors asked why he continued with his critical reporting--was he trying to discredit the government and bring back former President Musharraf?
In the months since his kidnapping, Cheema has been harassed and threatened for his coverage of politics, national security, and corruption. In keeping with Pakistan's record of near-perfect impunity in the cases of hundreds of journalists threatened, abducted, and killed, Cheema's case remains unprosecuted and unsolved. But his courage has rallied his colleagues across the nation. An editorial in the English-language daily Dawn said, "No half-hearted police measures or words of consolation from the highest offices in the land will suffice in the aftermath of the brutal treatment meted out to journalist Umar Cheema of The News. This paper's stand is clear: the government and its intelligence agencies will be considered guilty until they can prove their innocence."
Today I (David Brown) will be speaking with Joe Beaulaurier of WhatcomMarketing.com about his recently published blog post "And Again, The Press Release is Dead." Among other things we're going to have some Black Friday / Cyber Monday... Cyber Tuesday(?) chat. And really... anything else is fair game as Ryan and Fabio are playing hooky today.

Jim and Jennifer are thrilled to talk to Chuck Wang. Chuck was born in Taiwan, raised in St. Louis, MO., and graduated from San Diego State University with a BA in International Business. He is proud to be the son of two dedicated successful immigrant serial restaurateurs. He is inspired by his little brother, David, every day. In 1997, Chuck established a litigation support startup’s presence in San Diego. Having done so in an extremely vertical niche market within 13 months led to a public relations and marketing position at a local digital imaging firm (cutting edge tech at the time). Chuck pivoted and took the entrepreneurial leap in October 1998 and hasn’t looked back. The Inspired Works Podcast is Chuck’s newest venture and gives him the opportunity to dedicate his life to helping others get it right. He believes that the only way to pay forward a life worth living is through impactful service to others. Chuck loves to fly sail planes, ride motorcycles, scuba dive, solve mechanical problems, dance to hip hop when no one is watching, listen to rap music, and play with little fat bulldogs. Check out his website including some of the enlightening interviews he has done (one of which is with Freedom For All co-host Jennifer): http://inspired.works/

Fear can sometimes have a paralyzing affect on your spiritual life; however, understanding how to overcome fear can unlock the door to unlimited freedom.People often have a very limited, stereotypical perspective on what it means to be free-spirited. If you truly want to be a free spirit, keep the following in mind.Society likes to serve us up a very narrow interpretation of what constitutes a “free-spirit.” Images that immediately come to mind are the globetrotting bohemian, the manic pixie dream girl, the free-wheeling artist, the minimalist philosopher, or the co-op-inhabiting environmentalist. Maybe your vision of free-spiritedness was defined in high school by that tattooed, trilingual, punked-out guy who never failed to remind people of how many countries he’d been to when, really, it was the quiet, dorky girl who spent every lunch break in the library who couldn't care less what you thought about her. Instead of falling into the trap of molding yourself to some predefined role, live your life as a free agent will be discussed today with host Edna J. White.
