Optimization of laboratory procedures for effective water treatment plant operation
Pivokonský, Martin ; Vašatová, Petra ; Petříček, Radim ; Pivokonská, Lenka ; Novotná, Kateřina
This scientific report has been realized within a TACR project (no. TJ01000169) of the ZÉTA programme aimed at supporting applied research. The report is intended for water treatment plant (WTP) operators and serves as a basic guideline for optimization of the coagulation process in water treatment. In the first part of the report, a methodology of jar tests is briefly described. Conducting the jar test is fundamental for an effective control over the coagulation step in WTP operation. Jar tests are necessary for a determination of the optimum operating conditions of coagulation, i.e., type and dose of the coagulant and coagulation pH value, needed for reaching the highest treatment efficiency. The other part of the report summarizes and evaluates the results of jar test optimization conducted at the WTP in Kutná Hora, and recommendations for optimization of the WTP operation are suggested. Economic aspects of the optimization are then discussed in a separate section.
Educational aspects of space perception
Novotná, Kateřina ; Hanus, Martin (advisor) ; Knecht, Petr (referee) ; Siwek, Tadeusz (referee)
The purpose of this thesis is to focus on the research of space perception. Under the term space perception is understood the widest possible meaning as a process wherein an individual creates ideas about the outside world (Siwek 2011). Space imaginations contains objects with their attributes and relations between each other. In as much as each of us creates ideas about space, then it can be assumed a relatively wide interest in different scientific disciplines, which causes an unclear scientific anchoring of terminology and methodology. Therefore, this thesis first discusses the terminology and methodology regarding the research within a geographical education. Then this thesis proceeds to the definition of key terms: mental map, cognitive map and sketch map. Mental map and cognitive map in this thesis are understood as synonyms that reflects the ideas in the memory of an individual about the outside world, whereas the sketch map is one of the methods how to collect these ideas. Furthermore, this thesis defines the methods of collecting data of subjective characteristics contained in mental maps, which can be subsequently visualised through thematic mental maps. Therefore, the following part of the thesis focuses on the sketch map and thematic mental map as a tool and a subject of geographical...

Tomanová, Veronika ; Laufková, Veronika (advisor) ; Novotná, Kateřina (referee)
The diploma work is focused on the development of prosocial behaviour in a kindergarten by means of reader's preliteracy. The theoretical part clarifies the terms related to the issues of the development of prosocial behaviour in a kindergarten, reader's literacy and preliterasy. It as well briefly describes the differences between heterogeneous and homogenous structure of the classroom in a kindergarten arranged according to the age and deals with the kindergarten as well as the classroom climate. The aim of the practical part was to describe in what matter the particular kindergarten develops pro-social behaviour of children with the support of reader's preliteracy. During the whole school year there were particular activities established and consequently implemented into an age-heterogeneous classroom located in a one-classroom kindergarten and upon consequent reflexion and feedback the activities were further provided with a possibility to work further with a given activity. To gain the reflexion and feedback the methods of interviews, monitoring and self-reflexion were used. Children participating in the activities kept developing their prosocial behaviour and attitude to reading. After studying specialised literature a questionnaire for the research within the practical part was designed for...
Reproductive investment, body condition and survival in the barn swallow (Hirundo rustica)
Novotná, Kateřina ; Tomášek, Oldřich (advisor) ; Svobodová, Jana (referee)
Life history theory provides possible explanations for timing of important events which shape nature of both specific animal life cycles and acquisition of resources. Since the amount of available resources is limited, trade-off arises in an organism in how energy and time are invested into components that determine individual fitness. A key trade-off in life history theory is the one between resource allocation into reproduction and mechanism promoting homeostasis and survival. Increased investment in actual reproduction can have negative impact on condition and hence on future reproduction or survival. I explored relationships between reproduction, aspects of condition (haematology and ectoparasite prevalence) and survival in barn swallow (Hirundo rustica) population in South Bohemia. Mean brood size in actual season was positively correlated with survival in next breeding season in females but not in males. In addition, survival was positively correlated with number of nests in both sexes. These findings suggest that, apart from trade-off between reproduction and survival, variability of individual quality, condition or resource availability also influence their eventual relationship. High quality individuals that are more efficient in acquisition and utilisation of nutrients or other resources...

Interactive books pro preschool children - benefits and risks
Marešová, Zuzana ; Laufková, Veronika (advisor) ; Novotná, Kateřina (referee)
1 ABSTRACT This diploma thesis deals with interactive book for preschool children and their benefits and risks. In the theoretical part it is discuss the definition of interaction and interactive book, and its brief history. It provides a overview of the categories of interactive books available in internal bookstores. Finally it is put into context of interactive book characteristics of a pre- school child (developmental specifics, reading literacy, relationship to a book, the role of an adult). The research part of this work examines by method of content analysis of texts of two international empirical studies and questionnaire research between parents and teachers. Results show the benefits and risks of an interactive book for preschool children. Among the most frequently cited benefits were the development of eye-hand coordination, speech, thinking, and fantasy development. Opposidly, the most frequently cited risks were the quality of the book, child's attention on the physical handling of moving parts rather than on the story, and the interconnection of the illustration / moving elements with the story of the book.

The impact of oxidation processes on AOM coagulation
Titov, Ivan ; Načeradská, Jana (advisor) ; Novotná, Kateřina (referee)
Due to anthropogenic impact, surface water sources are subject to intensive growth of phytoplankton communities. This poses a problem for water treatment, not only because water contains a large number of algae cells, but also because of the high concentrations of algal organic matter (AOM). These substances are characterized by low removability during the conventional water treatment process by coagulation, and therefore the increase in AOM removability is currently being researched. Oxidation pretreatment before coagulation is one of the methods that increase the effectiveness of algae and its excreted matter's removability. This work researches the influence of oxidation treatment on AOM removability by coagulation, and on treated water quality. The literary research has shown that pre-oxidation is rather ambiguous in terms of AOM coagulation. From one point of view, with the correct calibration of operation conditions, a right choice of oxidation process and the optimum oxidant dosage it is possible to achieve an effectiveness increase of partial AOM removal (e.g. cyanotoxins, taste and odour compounds and low molecular weight compounds with the help of mineralization). Pre-oxidation, however, can impair AOM coagulation by transforming high molecular weight compounds into low molecular weight...

Kulíšková, Kamila ; Uhlířová, Jaromíra (advisor) ; Novotná, Klára (referee)
Introduction: Multiple sclerosis is a chronic autoimmune neurodegenerative affection of the central nervous system with various neurological symptoms. Disability of upper extremities with other symptoms leads to impaired ability to work and ADL-activities of daily living. The purpose of the pilot study was to evaluate the effect of hand training with the Hand Tutor® rehabilitation system. Methods: The study involved 9 probands, completed 6 probands (2 females and 4 males) at an average age of 36 (SD 4), with a mean disease duration of 13 years (SD 4). Patients received a series of 10 Hand Tutor® therapies, 1-2 times a week. The effect of the therapy was evaluated using the Nine Hole Peg Test (9HPT), the Modified Frenchay Scale and the subjective evaluation of the probands. Results: Before the therapies, the average performance in the 9HPT test was 85 seconds and 83 points in the Modified Frenchay scale. After the therapies, the average 9HPT performance was 67 seconds and 86 points in the Modified Frenchay scale. According to the subjective evaluation of probands, the therapy had a positive effect on the tremor of the upper limb and on the use of the upper limb in the ADL. Conclusion: Therapy with a special rehabilitation system provides patients with MS with more intensive hand training using...
The preparedness of selected company and his employees in Tabor District for the release of chemical substance from the operation
NOVOTNÁ, Karolína
The bachelor thesis describes the issue of preparedness of selected company and its employees for leakage of chemicals from operation. The theoretical part deals with the characteristics of the selected enterprise, the actual chemical accident that occurred in the selected enterprise, legislation related to the topic of work, the behavior of residents in the event of a dangerous chemical leakage, staff training and terms such as chemical accident, emergency planning, fire evacuation plan are explained here. The aim of the work was to evaluate the readiness of the selected company and its employees in the Tábor district for leakage of chemicals from operation. Employee preparedness was evaluated by means of a questionnaire survey, the preparedness of the company by comparing the applicable legislation with internal documents. The research question was formulated as: "What is the real preparedness of the company for leakage of chemicals from operation?" During the research it was found out that the selected company had prepared internal documents in accordance with the valid legislation and by means of a questionnaire survey it was found that its employees are well prepared for leakage of chemicals. So the real preparedness of the company is good. The methodology of the work describes how research was conducted among randomly selected respondents. Despite good preparedness, it was found that all respondents would not behave correctly when a dangerous chemical leaked out of operation, and not all employees were trained in regular fire protection intervals. The results of this work will be provided to the selected company for the purpose of assessing preparedness for leakage of chemicals from operation.
