Reply to "leaving out ‘being’?"

Yes, Deepcosmos, "being" is needed in all such sentences, even though you are able to find examples of incorrect uses of English on the Internet. The three examples you quote are incorrect. "Before" and "after" are never conjunctions, even when they are complemented by finite clauses. They are prepositions.

Hi, David, thanks a million!!
