The Sudan cheetah, along with the [[Tanzanian cheetah]], rank among the largest subspecies. Certain cheetahs can be smaller or medium-sized. Its characteristics resembles the Tanzanian cheetah the most, it has a densely [[Tawny (color)|ochraceous]] spotted coat with relatively thick and coarse fur in comparison to its relatives from eastern and northwestern Africa. The belly of the Sudan cheetah is distinctly white while its breasts and throat can have some black spots similar to the eastern subspecies. However, it is the darkest in fur color.

Like its [[relative to the south in East Africa]], the Sudan cheetah is fairly large. Certain cheetahs can be smaller or medium-sized. Its characteristics resembles the Tanzanian cheetah the most, it has a densely [[Tawny (color)|ochraceous]] spotted coat with relatively thick and coarse fur in comparison to its relatives from eastern and northwestern Africa.

This subspecies has the largest head size, but sometimes can get relatively smaller. However, it does not have mustache markings. The tear marks of the Sudan cheetah are highly inconsistent, but they are frequently thickest at the mouth corners than the other four subspecies, making them quite unique.

Like all cheetahs, Sudan cheetahs are threatened and outranked by larger predators in their area. They are threatened by [[lion]]s,<ref name="Denis-Hoot">[[#Denis-Hoot|Denis-Hoot]], 198.</ref> [[African leopard|leopard]]s, [[spotted hyena]]s and [[African wild dog|wild dog]]s, as they can kill cheetahs and steal their carcasses. The cheetahs would surrender their meals to spotted and [[striped hyena]]s. Cheetahs are known to be unable to defend themselves against these predators. However, coalitions of male adult cheetahs can chase predators away. Although, a single cheetah can chase [[jackal]]s, [[golden wolves]] and a lone wild dog away.

==History==
Before the development of printed circuit boards, complex electrical and electronic circuits were [[point-to-point construction|wired point-to-point]] on a chassis. Typically, the chassis was a sheet metal frame or pan, sometimes with a wooden bottom. Components were attached to the chassis, usually by insulators when the connecting point on the chassis was metal, and then their leads were connected directly or with jumper wires by soldering, or sometimes using crimp connectors, wire connector lugs on screw terminals, or other methods. Circuits were large, bulky, heavy, and relatively fragile (even discounting the breakable glass envelopes of the vacuum tubes that were often included in the circuits), and production was labor-intensive, so the products were expensive.

Development of the methods used in modern printed circuit boards started early in the 20th century. In 1903, a German inventor, Albert Hanson, described flat foil conductors laminated to an insulating board, in multiple layers. [[Thomas Edison]] experimented with chemical methods of plating conductors onto linen paper in 1904. Arthur Berry in 1913 patented a print-and-etch method in the UK, and in the United States Max Schoop obtained a patent<ref>{{Cite patent|US|1256599}}</ref> to flame-spray metal onto a board through a patterned mask. Charles Ducas in 1927 patented a method of electroplating circuit patterns.<ref name="Harper03">Charles A.

== Policy Development ==
Jackson has been involved with the [[Council of Europe]]'s work on policy for religion and education since it first included this topic in 2002. He participated in a project on the Religious dimension of intercultural education which produced publications in 2004 and 2007. He co-organised the first Council of Europe «Exchange» between leaders of faith communities and humanist associations in Europe in [[Strasbourg]] in April 2008, and was part of the team which drafted the Recommendation by the Committee of Ministers on teaching about religions and non-religious convictions, published in 2008. In 2006 he conducted a study for the Council of Europe exploring the feasibility of a European educational centre, including studies of religious diversity. The recommendation to initiate an interdisciplinary centre, including intercultural, human rights and citizenship education, with cross-cutting subjects such as religion and history, was taken up by the [[Politics of Norway|Norwegian Government]] and the Council of Europe, and the [[European Wergeland Centre]] opened in Oslo in 2009. Jackson held a Visiting Professorship at Oslo University College (2009–2012) in order to take on the role of Special Adviser on religious diversity and education at the European Wergeland Centre. He continues in the role of Expert Adviser at the Council of Europe and the European Wergeland Centre. From 2011 to 2014 he was vice-chair of a joint Council of Europe and European Wergeland Centre committee given the task of disseminating the 2008 Council of Europe Ministerial recommendation. Jackson wrote the book ''Signposts'' which developed from this work, on behalf of the joint committee. ''Signposts'' was published in English in 2014 and has been translated into twelve European languages as well as Arabic. He is currently a Visiting Professor in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences Education at Stockholm University, Sweden.

: I think this will be relevant looking forward - and we definitely see wide coverage of this. As for whether this should be in "personal life" or a different section - I don't have any strong feelings - however if this is moved - then the rest of the post-2015 (which is not personal) should be moved (e.g. Ahed, something in 2015). As for Lasky - she shouldn't be described as "just" a lawyer - she's a high-profile activist (she headed [[Peace Now]] in the past) and an active [[Meretz]] politician (on the national list, but not high enough to get in yet - she is seventh on the list, Meretz got five seats (+ one resignation as of now - so she's next in line to go in, I believe), she represents Meretz in the Tel-Aviv city council) - and if you insert her, it might be grounds for more opinions on the matter.

With his instantly recognizable gravelly voice, Armstrong was also an influential singer, demonstrating great dexterity as an improviser, bending the lyrics and melody of a song for expressive purposes. He was also very skilled at [[scat singing]]. Armstrong is renowned for his charismatic stage presence and voice almost as much as for his trumpet playing. Armstrong's influence extends well beyond jazz, and by the end of his career in the 1960s, he was widely regarded as a profound influence on popular music in general. Armstrong was one of the first truly popular [[African-American]] entertainers to "cross over", whose skin color was secondary to his music in an America that was extremely [[Racial segregation|racially divided]] at the time. He rarely publicly politicized his race, often to the dismay of fellow African Americans, but took a well-publicized stand for [[desegregation]] in the [[Little Rock Nine|Little Rock crisis]]. His artistry and personality allowed him socially acceptable access to the upper echelons of American society which were highly restricted for black men of his era.
