Activists were presented as vandals and marauders, supporters, opponents and critics, victims and neutral as people demonstrating their opinion. The themes linked to the presentation were eight: politics, human rights, investment, Czech-Chinese relations and the country's direction, police and citizens' rights, activism, media and foreign reaction.

The scheme occurrence pointed out the fact, that activists have been presented not in single but multiple ways.

On the one hand, the site of research changes in terms of population growth, furthermore of course also spatially and architecturally due to the growing family houses and smaller industrial buildings. In addition, the development of political life in the municipality also applies to this transformation, and its further direction is strongly influenced by the suburbanization process. The main aim of this work is therefore to capture the impact of this process on the life in the village and its inhabitants from the point of view of the local population. Research has shown that suburbanization is perceived rather positively, as it brings additional financial resources in the form of new inhabitants, and thus greater investment in infrastructure and publicly beneficial contracts. Secondly, social and cultural life has been improved in thanks to the emergence of new traditional events and meetings for local residents organized by the municipality with the aim to improve community life. Research has not shown that...

Constructing Participatory Spaces: Involving Citizens into the Urban Development Planning from the View of Planners
Beránková, Petra Alexandra ; Mička, Pavel (advisor) ; Veselý, Arnošt (referee)
The work deals with constructing of participatory spaces in the process of urban development planning. The topic of involving citizens into planning is viewed from the point of planners. A concept of participation in this text is conceived in the sense of invented spaces built from above. The research perspective is an interpretative one, anchored in the constructivist epistemology. Therefore the main question is: How do planners reflect involving citizens in the planning? Firstly, the authoress demonstrates the importance of her topic by putting it into the context of wider social dynamics related to the crises of representative democracy and emerging of sub-politics. She reveals that the trend of building participatory opportunities is strengthening. The important question is formulated: How is the role of public in the strategic planning constructed? On the base of analytical induction of semi-structured interviews with planners, the authoress creates her own typology of ideal-type approaches to participation. These types of approaches came out from a distinction of the extent and the aim of spaces of participation. The involvement of citizens can be seen either as building of community, activation of elites, mapping of public preferences or as consultation with local experts.

Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové Department of Analytical Chemistry Candidate: Petra Beránková Supervisor: doc. RNDr. Dalibor Šatínský Ph.D. Supervisor - consultant: Mgr. Kseniya Dryahina Ph.D. Title of bachelor thesis: The Volatile Metabolites of Food Additives and Supplements Most of the food available in supermarkets contains food additives that are used to improve the appearance, smell and taste. Additives undergo metabolism in the human body undergo metabolism and can influence the health of the individual. The aim of this thesis is to explore the possibility of establishing volatile metabolites present in human breath that arise as result of metabolism of food additives and supplements. Experiments focus on quantitative pharmacokinetics of volatile metabolites after ingestion of a substance selected from the group of artificial sweeteners and supplement. Food sweetener aspartame (E 951) used to achieve a sweet taste in foods and beverages was chosen as a model example. Aspartame is converted in the body to methyl alcohol, formic acid and phenylalanine. Therefore, we followed the methyl alcohol content in the breath of healthy volunteers. Breath analysis was performed using SIFT-MS (selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry) with the Profile 3 instrument. The...

The first part was devoted to detailed analysis of domestic and foreign literature, which deals with the work processed in this field. The main research questions were if changed start, end and length of growing period during the analysis period. Other research theme was comparision with ground phenological data. Another objective of this work was search dependencies computed data phenological variables from vegetation indicies with phenological ground data. As a basic data set was used GIMMS set, which distributes the vegetation index NDVI. Other data sets were MERIS MTCI, data MODIS with vegetation indices NDVI, EVI a LAI. The results of analyzes of vegetation phenology show trends in most shifts at the beginning of growing season, where was a shift to an earlier time. Results of the analysis of vegetation remote sensing data with ground-based phenological data ČHMÚ were unfolding always according to the specific forest phenological stations. Interesting results were at the phenological station Svoboda nad Úpou, where the results of trends directives were consistent in almost all data sets. Comparison of process curves vegetation indicies with ground data corresponded most curves at selected...
