Joe Beal, inspired by his older brother Dick, translated the ethic of servant leadership –
who protected and preserved many under his command during Vietnam –
in the broad field of environmental engineering and consulting, and he continues to guide veterans and ensure their voices and combat experiences are valued.

Beal is a sixth-generation Texan. He graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School in Dallas, then attended Texas Tech where he studied to become a civil engineer. In 1967, his penultimate year at Texas Tech, Beal joined ROTC and began his journey of wartime service. He was commissioned into the military as a second lieutenant in the medical services corps.

Dick, five years older, had already forged the Beal family line in Vietnam. He decided very young to devote his life to a military career; Dick graduated from Texas A&M, was commissioned and served as a general’s aide before being among the first units deployed to Vietnam in 1965. From afar, he and Joe corresponded by letter, and Dick, a commanding officer of infantry, helped brief Joe on the realities of war and what Vietnam was going to look like.

From 1966 to 1970, the two Beal brothers were deployed in Vietnam. Dick was eventually promoted to colonel, taught at West Point, was a brigade commander, and served under Colin Powell when Powell was chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Dick died suddenly in 1989 at the Pentagon at the age of 48 and is buried in a place of honor at Arlington National Cemetery.

“My brother is a hero – a highly decorated Major in Vietnam and a true soldier,” Joe said. “I just tried to survive. I’m not a hero, although we may have done some heroic things. It was just a fluke, responding to the moment.”

Joe Beal was trained in medical service at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, then was sent to 82n/a Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Beal was assigned to the Republic of Vietnam’s 44th Medical Brigade. He served in the Central Highlands until he was promoted to Captain and then appointed Detachment Commander. Although the primary focus of his unit was preventative medicine, Beal realized that there were free time and other needs; the field suffered from a significant lack of doctors. He allowed his team to volunteer to fight, treat and remove wounded soldiers from imminent battlefield damage and assist the local helicopter medical evacuation unit. Beal often led his team ahead of scheduled battles and had helicopters in position; he even helped out in the operating room when needed.

Function Joseph Beal

With just days left on his tour of duty, Beal was injured while on a civic medical action mission; he was evacuated to Japan and eventually to San Francisco, where he recovered and received an honorable medical discharge. Beal received numerous military awards, including the Bronze Star Medal.

As his Army career drew to a close, Beal applied to the University of Texas’ Master of Commerce program. Although his application was initially denied, Beal negotiated his acceptance based on his leadership and military combat experience, and the UT Registrar relented. He moved to Austin directly after his recovery stint in San Francisco and earned his MBA, with majors in finance and construction management, in 1979.

“It was the smartest thing I’ve ever done,” Beal said.

He soon joined Espey Huston and Associates as one of the first employees and senior vice president. As the company experienced significant growth and expansion, Beal said his master’s training prepared him to speak and collaborate with people in any industry, and he loved using his vision of engineer with a financial aptitude to understand how to finance interesting designs.

Beal retired in 1990 at age 50, but soon discovered another line of service with the Lower Colorado River Authority. He joined as a water and land resources manager, was promoted to general manager, and found fulfillment serving the people of Texas. Additionally, Beal also found meaning in establishing a culture of veteran recognition at the LCRA. The organization began recognizing Veterans Day and held internal celebrations.

He continues to serve on the board of Honor Flight Austin, which recognizes veterans of World War I, the Korean War and Vietnam, and flies groups to view their memorials in Washington DC. Beal’s participation in Honor Flight helped him personally integrate his own experiences. with battle and loss.

“In our time, you just didn’t talk about it. Our nation didn’t welcome returning Vietnam veterans. I didn’t tell anyone that I served in Vietnam until after the war Gulf,” Beal said.

As the pace of life changes, often in retirement, many veterans –
including Beal – are beginning to experience the symptoms of post-traumatic stress, and it helps to find community and talk about those memories and experiences.

“It’s part of the healing process. You can face it and talk about it — bring it out into the open,” Beal said.


Thanks to the Texas Lottery, great things are happening all over Texas. The Texas Lottery now regularly contributes over $1.6 billion in lottery revenue each year to worthy causes like public education and veterans. aid programs. Beginning with the first veteran-dedicated scratch ticket game in 2009, the Texas Lottery has now donated more than $196 million to the Veterans Relief Fund.

Since 1992, the Texas Lottery has generated over $35 billion in revenue for the state of Texas. Through strict adherence to its Vision, Mission and Core Values, the Texas Lottery is committed to ensuring the continuity of this support.

The World Bank has announced a new blue economy program that will catalyze funding and provide an operational response to the development challenges of the coastal-marine areas of the African continent.

The Blue Economy for a Resilient Africa (BE4RAP) program was announced at a World Bank COP 27 event, attended by Egypt’s Minister of Environment Yasmine Fouad, Tanzania’s Deputy Minister of Union and Environment Hamza Khamis Hamza and Morocco’s Deputy Budget Director for the Ministry of Economy. and Finance Youssef Farhat. The program aims to address the challenge faced by coastal countries to manage their coastal and marine resources to stimulate economic growth and reduce poverty, while adapting to the effects of climate change.

A first for the World Bank in Africa, a “Mangrove Blue Carbon Pilot Programwas announced as part of BE4RAP. The $13.5 million program includes financing of $2 million from IDA and $3 million from PROBLUE, a multi-donor trust fund hosted by the World Bank, and $8.5 million from the Danish energy company Ørsted. The funds will go towards the planting, technical assistance and maintenance for 20 years of 3,000 hectares of mangroves in Ghana, as part of the West Africa Coastal Areas Management (WACA) Program financed by the World Bank. Other donors, including private, public and multilateral partners, have expressed interest in contributing to a portfolio of blue economy investments in Africa.

“BE4RAP is about doing more, better and faster,” said Global Director for Environment, Natural Resources and Blue Economy of the World Bank Valerie Hickey. “Capitalizing on existing programs and partnerships, we rally under the leadership of coastal African countries and support each with financial and technical assistance.

A series of 12 thematic papers on BE4RAP solutions have been launched, showcasing the impact of existing World Bank programs and financing opportunities that can be scaled up for Africa to unlock the full potential of a resilient economy. From biodiversity-rich ecosystems to fisheries management and innovation, coastal countries in Africa can maximize the benefits of sustainably managed oceans. The program will build on successful programmatic experiences on the continent such as Morocco’s blue economy program, the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden and analytical work such as the Blue Skies, Blue Seas report.

The Blue Economy for a Resilient Africa program is expected to convene a “Focus on Africa Blue Marketplace” in 2023. Building on the World Bank’s extensive existing portfolio in North Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa, the BE4RAP aims to mobilize new support , financing and partnerships to meet the ambition of COP 27 to have an Africa-wide initiative providing innovative climate solutions, in particular to blue economy.

Quotes from partners who have expressed their support for the program:

“The French Development Agency (AFD) is deeply concerned about the well-being of African peoples, cultures, countries and the environment. With a large portfolio of activities in all sectors on the continent, AFD is increasingly committed to climate, biodiversity and the SDGs. Addressing several of these challenges at once, the blue economy is a major part of the solution, and we want to fully partner with the World Bank on the BE4RAP. said Cassilde Brenière, Deputy Director of Operations, French Development Agency.

“We are very pleased that NDF funding to the World Bank for the West Africa Coastal Zone Management Program Scaling-Up Platform has supported the design of the innovative new blue carbon project for Ghana. It has unlocked funding from both the public and Nordic private sectors that has the potential to be replicated across the coastal landscape and in other countries in Africa. We look forward to further engaging with the World Bank and many other partners to promote a sustainable and resilient blue economy, including through initiatives such as the BE4RAP, said Martina Jägerhorn, Program Manager, Nordic Development Fund.

“We see an untapped realization of the potential of using blue carbon in coastal and marine ecosystems for carbon sequestration. In our view, access to carbon finance should be simplified. Too often we see one or more intermediaries in carbon trading, leaving less carbon price available to recipient countries and people living in affected ecosystems,” said Ingrid Reumert, Group Stakeholder Relations Manager, Ørsted, Denmark.

Local-level initiatives as derivatives of green civil society are one of the most important pillars for enhancing more resilient ecosystems. They are also a catalyst for strong solutions to many climate-related issues. I hope BE4RAP will be inclusive and provide a platform where communities and civil society can speak oute,” said Ahmed Yassin, co-founder, Banlastic, Egypt

Similarly, research organizations such as the National Research Institute for Sustainable Development (IRD) wish to commit:

“The IRD recognizes the importance of science and higher education for the blue economy and the climate in Africa. The IRD welcomed the collaboration with the World Bank on the African Center of Excellence for Coastal Resilience (ACECoR) organized by the University of Cape Coast, Ghana. Consequently, the IRD wishes to associate itself with the BE4RAP and is delighted to develop partnerships likely to support African countries, their institutions and their populations. said Corinne Brunon-Meunier, deputy director of the National Research Institute for Sustainable Development (IRD).

Notre Dame alumnus and entrepreneur Dorene C. Dominguez joined the Institute of Latin American Studies for a public lecture Sept. 19 as part of Notre Dame’s Hispanic Heritage Month celebration.

Hispanic Heritage Month is a month-long celebration that takes place from September 15e to October 15e. Recognized as a national holiday, it serves as a way to celebrate Latin culture and history. At Notre Dame, the Institute for Latin American Studies has a tradition of hosting events to celebrate this important campus holiday.

Officially, Dominguez (’85) was also the headliner for the Institute’s annual Transformative Latino Leadership conference. However, in recognition of 50 years of women at Notre Dame, the title of the event has been changed to Transformative Latin Conference, honoring the unique perspective and accomplishments of Latinas at Notre Dame and in the community.

Dorene Dominguez (’85): CEO of Vanir and Administrator of Notre Dame

Dominguez is the CEO of Vanir, a property management and construction company in San Bernardino, California. Vanir has offices in eight states and approximately 400 employees. Additionally, Dominguez is also a board member of Notre Dame.

During the conference, during which she was interviewed by ILS director and professor of political science, Luis Fraga, she explained how she seeks to bring to the board the same values ​​that she instills in her business: inclusiveness, empowerment and collaboration. Such a work ethic raises, rather than silences, fresh and forthcoming voices.

Dominguez has won numerous awards, including the 2018 Female Entrepreneur of the Year Award from the Houston Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the 2019 Latino Spirit Award for Achievement in Business and Philanthropy from the Latino Caucus of the California Legislature.

Outside of construction and real estate, she is a minority owner of the NBA’s Sacramento Kings franchise and is a member of Coca-Cola’s Hispanic Advisory Board.

During his public address, Dominguez provided insight into his background and upbringing in San Bernardino. She spoke of her educational struggles and how the mentorship of a local teacher led her to apply to Notre Dame. Being one of the first Latin women to attend business school prepared her to “enter male-dominated fields”, such as construction management and politics; it also fueled her passion for inclusivity in the professional world.

Dominguez stressed the importance for women to help other women, especially in the workplace. She referenced how “an abundance mentality is crucial.” You should spread your success to other women, “not fight for crumbs,” she told an audience of about 50 students, staff and community members.

Melissa Osorio, a first-year undergraduate science and business student, attended the conference and was moved by Dominguez’s advice.

“I felt a spark of inspiration hearing Ms. Dominguez’s story. Not only was she successful, but she had a positive impact on the lives of many students, Osorio said.

Indeed, Dorene Dominguez is a shining example of empowerment through education. As a first-generation Latina in business, her accomplishments are a driving force for generations to come.

Honoring Latin voices through the Transformative Latina Leadership Speaker Series sends a clear message: if it sucks.

As the university continues to make room for such achievements, we hope they will become the norm for Latinas in the fields of higher and professional education. Women deserve a place at the table and more.

The Carpentry & Painting Experts, LLC is a professional commercial and residential contractor specializing in painting and remodeling services. The company recently discussed why DIY painting isn’t the best idea.

Richmond, Virginia – In a recent article, The Carpentry & Painting Experts, LLC shared reasons to avoid a DIY painting project. Richmond exterior and interior painters noted that painting a property requires a lot of supplies which can be quite expensive. That means homeowners who go the DIY route have to stretch their budget to meet those costs. Instead, a professional painter is equipped with the materials and equipment needed to get the job done. Additionally, they can source paint products at wholesale prices, passing the cost savings on to customers.

The team pointed out that painting the interior and exterior of Richmond is a daunting task that takes time and effort. Without the proper knowledge and skills, a homeowner can spend hours or days preparing and performing the paint job. Plus, they could make costly mistakes that force them to start over. However, a professional painter has had extensive training and worked on similar projects for years. This means they know the best approaches to get the job done right the first time.

Additionally, the team noted that DIY painting results are often inferior. However, one professional painting company, Richmond, has extensive experience in getting the job done and delivering quality, long-lasting results. Professionals also know how to work around challenges to deliver a silky smooth paint finish.

A student who stashed heroin and cocaine in his bum during a police raid has been spared a judge at Northampton Crown Court who was told ‘don’t blow it up’.

Bradley Muchikange, 22, hid the Class A drugs after cops rushed to an apartment he was in with two drug-dealing friends.

Police found 24 envelopes of cocaine and ten envelopes of heroin “plugged” between his buttocks during the raid in Kettering in May 2020.

Muchikange leaves Northampton Crown Court after receiving suspended sentence

Muchikange denied being a drug dealer and claimed another man in the apartment gave him the cocaine and heroin to keep.

Tests then showed that there were 0.68 g of heroin and 1.42 g of cocaine.

No drugs were found on the other defendants.

Muchikange, of Corby, pleaded guilty to possession of heroin and cocaine with intent to supply on Thursday (October 27).

The court heard he had three previous convictions, including one for racially aggravated GBH in 2018 and two for public order offenses in 2019 and 2020, and was facing charges. a community order and a conditional discharge at the time of the offence.

Deputy Senior District Judge Tanweer Ikram told Muchikange he was “very lucky” not to face an immediate jail sentence, adding that he had taken into account the young age and immaturity of the accused at the time of the offences.

He said, “One of the references I said you changed friends. I have just been persuaded that I can suspend your sentence.

“You’re lucky you weren’t sent today.

“Anyone carrying that amount of drugs is assumed to be a dealer, and dealers go to jail.

Muchikange was sentenced to 12 months in prison, suspended for 18 months and sentenced to 150 hours of unpaid work. He was also ordered to pay £535 in costs.

By way of mitigation, the court was told it had been a “dumb moment” for the defendant and that there was a realistic prospect of rehabilitation.

He had recently enrolled in a construction management course at the Global Banking School and had stayed out of trouble since being charged.
