Title: The Influence of macroeconomic factors on performance in eSports Objectives: The main objective of this work is to find determinants of success in eSports. Furthermore, interpreting regression coefficients gives us the opportunity to point out the most important factors of success in eSports and also to compare their relative strenght in regression model. The results of the regression analysis will be put in comparison with the outcomes of similiar papers on this topic, mainly focused on the performance in traditional sports. Methods: To analyse our collected secondary data, we use multiple linear regression model. To test some of the assumptions of regression, Pearson correlation coefficient was used. The dataset was tested on the 5 % significance level. The regression model was made via IBM SPSS Statistics 27. Results: There were only 5 independent variables left in the model after testing all the linear regression assumptions. From these 5, only 4 were statistically significant: Population, School enrollment (tertiary), Internet users per 100 and High-technology exports. Population and School enrollment have the most relative strenght in the regression model. Many authors mention GDP per capita as an important predictor of success in traditional sports, however this study does not...

Bibliographical Identification: Author`s first name and surname: Mgr. Jan Šíma Title of the doctoral thesis: Quality of sport services in Prague fitness centers from the customer perspective Department: Department of Sport Management Supervisor: doc. Ing. Eva Čáslavová, CSc. The year of presentation: 2015 Abstract: The thesis is aimed at the problems of sport service validation in the area of fitness. A review of the most used methods for sport service validation was completed. We focused on measurement according to subjective criteria, where the service quality is evaluated by the customers themselves. A practical part is dealt with using cross-cultural validation of the SERVQUAL method (PARASURAMAN, ZEITHAML, BERRY, 1988), originally validated for American customers. Our questionnaire was translated by modified direct translation and, in terms of pilot standardization, was tested on a sample of 46 participants from two fitness centres. A modified Czech version of SERVQUAL questionnaires was the main tool of our data collecting during the market research in six fitness centres chosen randomly with a sum of 697 participants. The main target of the research was to obtain Prague customers' opinions of each single feature of the quality of service. After finishing the market research, by means of SEM -...
Foucault, Althusser, and marxism: from epistemology to politics
Šíma, Jan ; Barša, Pavel (advisor) ; Kužel, Petr (referee)
(anglicky): Michel Foucault can be hardly described as a convinced marxist, but at the same time, marxism serves as an implicit referential framework in his works against which he shapes his own approach. Nowhere is this ambiguous relation more discernible than in the case of Foucault's former teacher, a marxist theoretician Louis Althusser, with whom he also shares a certain connection with the tradition of french historical epistemology. His revision of marxist theory often displays a curious affinity to Foucault's theoretical projects which are always beyond the limits of marxism. The subject of this thesis will be a reconstruction of the relationship of Michel Foucault towards marxism through his - often hidden - interaction with Althusser's theory. In the first part, I will focus on the period of 1960s during which both authors from anti-humanist and almost structuralist positions reflected questions of epistemology or the position of subject in history. Afterwards both authors move issues such as constitution of subject, power and the marxist conception of ideology, which they either revise (Althusser) or fully abandon (Foucault). In the final part I will focus on the questions of politics and on strategies which are in the cases of both authors provoked by the political changes of their...
