Biopolitics and COVID-19
Beneš, Jan ; Lupač, Petr (advisor) ; Šubrt, Jiří (referee)
Bachelor thesis deals with the topic of biopolitics in the context of the COVID-19 epidemic in the Czech Republic. The work has two main goals: the first goal is to identify and define expert discourses in the context of the COVID-19 epidemic; the second goal is to describe the functions and links of expert discourses to biopolitics. The theoretical basis of the work is drawn from the theory of Michel Foucault and his analyzes of biopolitics, bio-power and epidemics. The method of critical discursive analysis by Norman Fairclough is applied in this work, which is used to analyze expert texts. The first result of the analysis is the identification and definition of three expert discourses: the discourse of experts in the field of natural sciences, medical and economic discourse. The second result of the analysis is the finding that in relation to biopolitics, expert discourses have a recommendatory and analyzing functions. The bachelor thesis places the results of critical discursive analysis in the context of the COVID-19 epidemic and the theoretical framework of Foucault's thinking. At the end of the work I formulate a polemic with Michel Foucault's theoretical background. Key words Sociology, power, biopolitics, covid-19, discourse analysis
Regulace receptorů spřažených s G proteiny Studie muskarinových a β-adrenergních receptorů u M2KO myší
Beneš, Jan ; Mysliveček, Jaromír (advisor) ; Kuncová, Jitka (referee) ; Nováková, Marie (referee)
(in English): The aim of the work was to perform in-depth analysis of M2KO mice both at baseline and upon a challenge with a cold stress and to explore the role of opposing receptors (i.e. adrenoceptors) in adaptation to lacking M2-receptors in the heart. We have performed receptor binding studies, study of receptor gene expression, echocardiography, telemetric monitoring of heart rate, body temperature and activity, heart rate variability and biorhythm analysis, analysis of heart rate response to the application of drugs (carbachol, atropine, isoprenaline, propranolol), assessment of adenylyl cyclase and NO synthase activity, measurement of catecholamine blood concentration and gene expression of catecholamine-synthesizing enzymes. We have found that the disruption of M2-receptor gene caused a compensatory decrease of cardiostimulatory β1-adrenoceptors and β2-adrenoceptors with corresponding down-regulation of the gene expression, M3-receptors were down-regulated as well. Missing M2-receptors were functionally replaced by the main cardioinhibitory β3-adrenoceptors that were up-regulated, not by cardioinhibitory M4-receptors. β3-adrenoceptors were found to signal through adenylyl cyclase instead of NO synthase. All these changes were found in the left ventricle only, so heterologous regulation is...
Strategic Culture of the Czech Republic
Beneš, Jan ; Karásek, Tomáš (advisor) ; Eichler, Jan (referee) ; Kučera, Tomáš (referee)
Jan Beneš Strategic Culture of the Czech Republic Abstract The aim of the dissertation is to define in a complex manner the strategic culture of the Czech Republic. Strategic culture is at first analysed as a conceptual phenomenon both in relation to strategy itself and to the theories of international relations. The dissertation introduces the different streams of thought about strategic culture and then studies the approaches of the key involved authors with a special focus on the discussion between the first and the third generation of strategic culture scholars. Concerning the fact that the strategic culture has been originally created for the study of the behaviour and strategic thought of major powers, the author analyses the historical and geostrategic peculiarities of a small state in the Central Europe and then defines own conceptual and methodological framework. Using the method of grounded theory, the important symbols and narratives from the Czech history as well as the most important moments in the Czech political and strategic thought and decision-making are being examined. The historical narratives re-appear and influence the decision-making, thinking and argumentation of the key actors in the Czech security community. The research of the key decisions and historical moments after the 1989 is...
Procedural modeling and realism in computer graphics
Beneš, Jan ; Křivánek, Jaroslav (advisor)
One of the long-standing goals of computer graphics is to generate realistic imagery. This realism is predicated, among other things, on having access to high- quality content to display, and being able to verify its realism. Unfortunately, realism and especially realism in procedural modeling are under-represented in current literature. Consequently, we address these two topics by investigating the definitions of general realism in computer graphics and by providing a basic framework for thinking and talking about realism in procedural modeling. In or- der to provide this framework with initial tangible data, we present a user study of the realism of procedural buildings. We find that realism of this specific class of procedural models is carried on different scales and conclude that authors of procedural rules for buildings need to beware of not only the fine details, but also the overall shape of the generated models. Finally, we present a method for growing procedural road networks in and close to cities. We use a traffic simula- tion and adapt existing research to grow cities over time. The cities are formed by letting several meaningfully positioned smaller settlements' minor roads grow in step with additional major roads. As a result, we are able to generate cities with rich, complex and realistic...
Špica/ Brno, Nové sady 49°11'20.3"N 16°36'29.4"E
Kufa, Ondřej ; Beneš, Jan (referee) ; Palaščák, Michal (advisor)
The aim of the design is to revitalize the area lined by the streets of Nové sady, Úzká, and the Malá Amerika building. This uncultivated place is located quite near to the city center. During the design, the main focus was placed on the potential of the defined area. The new buildings recreate the city block, which is partially opened at the top of the area. In the upper corner of the plot is dominated by the rotating town hall tower. The lower floors of the town hall building are receding backward for the necessity to create a public space under the building, due to a road barrier directly in front of the city hall. The concept of the town hall and the completion of the city block enlivens the locality, brings there new functions, culture, and safety. The proposal counts on planting and recultivating new greenery towards the Malá Amerika building. The whole design thus seeks significantly integrate the new complex with the lowest load on the environment.

Endothelial Glycocalyx - Diagnostic Approach and Intervention Assesment
Pouska, Jiří ; Beneš, Jan (advisor) ; Málek, Jiří (referee) ; Štourač, Petr (referee)
UNIVERZITA KARLOVA Lékařská fakulta v Plzni Dizertační práce Endothelial glycocalyx - diagnostic approach and intervention assessment MUDr.Jiří Pouska ABSTRACT Endothelial glycocalyx (EG) is fine structure on the surface of endothelium. After extensive research in past years, revisited Starling principle was finally formulated. It describes fluid physiology in capillaries precisely. EG has pivotal role in keeping endothelium semipermeable and thus avoiding extensive filtration of fluids to interstitium. Assessment of EG is clinically difficult. Many pathological conditions lead to damage of EG (sepsis etc.). Intravenous fluid therapy is mainstay of treatment of such conditions. Our aim was to determine the changes of EG integrity depending on the choice of intravenous fluid and its infusion time in physiological and pathological conditions. Key words: Endothelial glycocalyx, infusion therapy, anaesthesia, sepsis, microcirculation.
