I will be translating them in reverse alphabetical order.

Translation of all the G-Group trainee profiles is already complete, they can be found in the other thread attached here:
I will also be adding the additional info from the short profiles on the official website not in the documents (Agency, Height, Hobbies). The Hobbies are already translated into English on the website, I’m just fixing grammar if needed. I’m also converting the Height to feet.

After pausing for May [sorry, just ran out of gas], Scholar Profiles is back! This month: David Stroup @davidstroup, Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Chinese Politics at @UoMPolitics who specializes in #Hui (i.e., Chinese Muslim) ethnicity. Image
Stroup earned his PhD in 2017 from @OUPoliSci and has published in leading journals such as @NationalitiesP, @AsianSurvey, and @ERSjournal. He’s also provided commentary for @BBCWorld, @washingtonpost and many others.…

#Gold down again but the #HUI don’t care and either do I. $NEM Newmont 4% dividend. Golds stocks are value plays and many with growth. #Gold will be $6000-10000 in 5-10 years. Forget the noise and get long

This month features the work of Yang Yang @yyang3076_yang, a postdoc researcher at @nus_ari of the National University of Singapore @NUSingapore. Yang Yang researches ethnic & religious politics & transnational religious networks, especially among #Hui (Chinese Muslim) in Xi’an. Image
Yang Yang is becoming a prolific scholar. Her work appears in @Pol_Geog_Jl, @IJCS_journal, & several edited volumes, most recently @UHPRESSNEWS Ethnographies of Islam in China…. I met Yang Yang at a conference hosted by @Rachel_A_Harris & Ha Guangtian @SOAS
I was impressed (i.e. blown away) by Yang Yang’s presentation about wedding photography and brides among Xian’s Hui communities (also the topic of her UH Press book chapter). The talk creatively pushed ethnography into art and pulled art into ethnography.

Mosque's minaret collapses or demolished in #China.

Could someone please tell me what the #Chinese characters say in the background? It would help me pin-point the location.

Will update feed once more information is gathered.

Thank you.
There is an 'excavator' at the beginning of the video and you can see there is a makeshift wall surrounding the area as well as 'witches hats/cones' to stop people from entering into the vicinity, which leads me to believe that it was demolished.

Location name: 中国银川国际商贸城.

Direct Translation: China Yinchuan International Trade City.

Actual Translation: China Muslim International Business & Trade City - Xingqing District, Yinchuan, Ningxia, China
