LONDON Graham Glasgow Jersey , June 20 (Xinhua) -- Up to 40,000 people are expected to take part in an annual pilgrimage to Britain's most pre-historic site, Stonehenge.

Their mission is to celebrate the summer solstice, the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere, at the world-famous circle of stones, acknowledged as one of the wonders of the world.

Stonehenge, a few kilometres outside Salisbury in Wiltshire County A'Shawn Robinson Jersey , attracts a million visitors a year from around the world. But solstice is its high point for worshippers of the sun.

Most of the visitors to the pre-historic site will be tourists and revellers, but among the crowd will be members of the pagan and druid communities, dressed in their traditional gowns. For the sunrise-worshipping Druids it is a religious occasion, as well as being an important event in the pagan calendar.

For the gathered crowd the critical moment will come precisely at 4:52 a.m. British Summer Time on Sunday when the sun rises at the start of what will be the longest day of the year. The dawn chorus will be loud music, beating drums and lively dancing and singing, and ritual chants of the formal celebrants.

Extra police will be on duty throughout the night to control the crowd and seek out drug-takers. Last year there were 25 people arrested by police, mainly for drug-related offences.

Built into the structure of Stonehenge is a fundamental alignment Michael Roberts Jersey , and on the longest day the sun rises from behind a large stone, known as the Heel Stone, with the first rays of the sun shining directly into the very heart of the Stonehenge circle.

Kate Davies, manager at Stonehenge for Britain's official cultural custodian, English Heritage, said: ""We are looking forward to a peaceful celebration and as solstice falls over the weekend we anticipate the area will be very busy.""

""We are working very closely with the local authorities plus the druid and pagan community to ensure access to Stonehenge will once again be a success. We ask all attending to respect the stones and the people celebrating the solstice,"" said Davies.

Stonehenge is one of the wonders of the world. Its great stones were raised more than 4 Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey ,000 years ago as a temple to the sun, with the surrounding banks and ditches even older.

Experts continue to marvel at the construction of Stonehenge, saying moving just one of the huge 40 tonne stones would have required a team of 200 people. Each stone was manually moved to the site over a distance of more than 30 km. Even the smaller stones were transported to Stonehenge from Wales, a distance of 240 km.

Many secrets remain within the silent stones of Stonehenge, who actually built it, how it was built and its significance in pre-historic Britain. As today's visitors will demonstrate, the sun and daylight continues to play an important part in daily lives.

WASHINGTON Kenny Golladay Jersey , Aug. 22 (Xinhua) -- As riots sparked by the shooting death of black teenager Michael Brown subside, attention is persistently focused on the chronic problem behind them -- the racial divide in the United States.

The 10-day riots in Ferguson, a St. Louis suburb in the state of Missouri, served as a striking reminder of the racial bias towards people of minorities, especially the African-rooted groups in the country.

In the United States, it is not uncommon for conflicts between minorities and police to swell into riots. On the national level, white people make up about three quarters of all local police. In Ferguson Teez Tabor Jersey , whose population is 67 percent black, the ratio is over 94 percent.

But when dealing with such conflicts, U.S. authorities are more than often reluctant to touch the racial dimension and even try to deny the existence of racial discrimination.

The abuse of power by U.S. police, who use rubber bullets, tear gas and water cannons against protestors, has also sparked questioning. Those tools are used under extreme caution in other countries, where police usually use riot shields and batons instead to reduce damage.

Analysts have pointed out that police use of excessive force has a long history and is a national problem. Authorities often use violence against people of minorities during law enforcement.

According to media reports Jarrad Davis Jersey , about 400 people die in conflicts between police and civilians in the United States each year. Among these cases, a quarter involve white cops and African-rooted Americans, and the death toll of African-Americans is more than twice that of white cops.

Besides suffering unfair treatment during police law enforcement, African-rooted minorities have disadvantaged social and economic status, which aggravates the racial divide.

According to census statistics, the annual family income of the white people in the United States reached 62,000 dollars in 2011 Kerryon Johnson Jersey , while African-American families earned 41,000 dollars on average, or two-thirds of that of an average white family. The ratio stood at 55 percent 50 years ago, but reached 70 percent in the 1980s.

In addition, 75 percent of the white have their own houses, compared to only 45 percent among the African minority families. The poverty rate is 8 percent among the white, but 25 percent among African-Americans. The divide also exists in homelessness Frank Ragnow Jersey , unemployment, education and health care.

In mostly black Ferguson, African-Americans still lag behind their white neighbors in terms of medical care, housing, education and other economic aspects.

Over the history, minority groups in the United States have never stopped their struggle against racial discrimination and fight for equal rights.

Although their political and economic status has been elevated noticeably over recent decades, there is still a long and tortuous way to go before the racial divide is completely eliminated.
