Great Power Politics: Russia, the USA and the Realist International Relations Theory Perspective
Bílý, Prokop ; Barša, Pavel (advisor) ; Slačálek, Ondřej (referee)
The diploma thesis focuses on great power politics at the dawn of the twenty-first century. The studied phenomenon is viewed through the lens of defensive, offensive a neoclassical realist perspective. The key goal of the thesis is to determine, whether contemporary streams of the realist international relations tradition can provide plausible explanation of great powers relations. The research is also embedded in the fourth great debate, which entered the international relations discipline during the course of 80's, and as such it tries to reflect current ontological and epistemological debate. Research results then show that realism is still a valid scientific discourse. On the other hand, neoclassical realism's research agenda, as is shown, takes over other theoretical perspectives features.
Russia's Foreign Policy Since Putin: Russia as a Eurasian Great Power?
Bílý, Prokop ; Aslan, Emil (advisor) ; Střítecký, Vít (referee)
This thesis deals with the Russia's foreign policy pursued by presidents Vladimir Putin and Dmitri Medvedev, respectively. The studied phenomenon is viewed through the lens of the theory of neo-Eurasianism, coined by the Russian philosopher and political scientist Alexander Gelevich Dugin. The starting point of the neo-Eurasian geopolitical theory is a conviction that the current world order is unipolar and that the U.S.-led globalization is an instrument of its reproduction. The alternative to the hostile, free development of nations curtailing, Atlantic order is represented by multipolarity which, according to the neo-Eurasian theory, will supposedly be established through the messianic mission of Russia-Eurasia, which has nevertheless first to free itself from the Atlantic bond. Application of the neo- Eurasian theory in the context of Russian foreign policy since 2000 then points to the conclusion that Russia's foreign policy can, to some extent, be considered neo-Eurasian.

The media picture of islam in specified Czech printed media in the year 2003
Bílý, Petr ; Trampota, Tomáš (advisor) ; Wolák, Radim (referee)
It is everytime very hard to find out the exact effects of mass communication on the publics, but it is at least possible to think about some meaning potentials of acts of mass communication. One of the ways how to give to a researcher a qualified possibility to analyse and predict possible meaning potentials is to let him use the results of content analysis done according to the rules of methodology for this research method. To analyse the possible impacts of media reporting (in a stereotypical way) about one of the biggest World religions is much more hard because of existence of a big amount of side chanels of influences that come to the process of recognition of the media contents.

The methodology of hydrogeologic tracer tests in fractured environment using fluorescent tracers
Bílý, P. ; Rohovec, Jan ; Baier, J. ; Vašíček, R.
The aim of the methodology is defining of optimal tools and effective work flow to perform and well evaluate tracer tests using fluorescent, non toxic tracers. The methodology focuses on in-situ tests in fractures rock environment, applying artificial hydraulic gradient and monitoring of changes in tracer concentration during test period. Data record is continuous and provide inputs into the numerical models.
Revitalization Program of Floral Garden in Kromeriz
Bílý, Petr ; Koutný, Jan (referee) ; Kopáčik, Gabriel (advisor)
The floral garden is a UNESCO heritage. Every visitor comes here to see its formal part which it gets its status for. My point was not to make a composition or objects which would cut capers too much. I have placed the most of the required functions in the original entrance building. The function of both the tropical and cold greenhouse was preserved. A visitor entering the garden is given a choice of two paths where to go to the Floral garden. He may either use the original one which goes through the yard of honour to the boundary of the flower garden and garden nursery or he may go via the information room towards the dutch garden. Then it goes through the colonnade connected with the yard of honour by a clear gate-way between the entrance building and the tropical greenhouse. The colonnade heads towards a caffé and a visitor going here walks through two pavillions where there are some information pannels with detailed information about the garden development. This path ends in the caffé where there is an area for some exhibitions as well. The caffé is situated by the north-west wall of the allotment and it contains a library, a study and a separated bathroom as well. External walls of this object consist of repeating pillars (1,2 meter long) and free space (2 meters long) where there is always a table. There are sash glass pannels in the two layer pillars in summer. These gaps are closed in winter. There is a rabbit hill replica in the agricultural area of the garden and there are some children slides and playground and the greenhouse pair.

The use of biometrics in IT
Bílý, Petr ; Balada, Jakub (advisor) ; Šedivá, Zuzana (referee)
Biometrics is increasingly applied in IT (biometric methods today generally use computer technology), mostly used to authenticate users. The aim of this thesis is to describe and compare two selected biometric methods. These methods are fingerprints and scanning of human face. The contribution of this work is to provide information on biometric identification methods, their advantages and disadvantages, and deployment options. If an organization decides to strengthen their security systems with introduction of biometric identification / verification systems, they can find information about these systems, types of sensing devices and their advantages and disadvantages. This work will provide an answer WHY introdukce and use these systems to persons who are responsible for the security policy. The first part after the introduction contains basic concepts in the field of biometric identification, followed by a general overview of the stages of biometric processing (from data collection to their storage), the main areas of use of biometric identification (corporate sphere, security of persons and property, law enforcement agencies and the courts, banking and e-commerce, travel and tourism, and telecommunications), measuring performance in biometrics. Then follow the main chapters of work consisting of two chosen methods of biometric identification (fingerprints and face) and their summaries in the form of mapping advantages and disadvantages.
