Perception of financial risks
Horová, Kateřina ; Richter, Eva (advisor) ; Sieber, Martina (referee)
The thesis is concerned with the perception of financial risks, concretely the perception of the risk of indebtedness. In the theme are used data from an online panel from Behavio Labs in order to find out whether the citizens of the Czech Republic perceive taking bank or non-bank loans , eventually more loans simultaneously, as risky or not and which socio-demographic variables are related to the perception of the risk of indebtedness. As independent variables are analysed variables gender, age, education, income, number of kids, marital status, region, or money satisfaction. The methodological framework is based on descriptive statistics, contingency tables, serial correlations, and the non- parametric Kruskall-Wallis test. The thesis reveals that citizens of the Czech Republic in general perceive taking loans as risky. Because of the very oblique distribution for all dependent variables measuring risk perception of different types of loans, not too many statistically significant relationships were revealed. The strongest relationship that was shown was the dependence between risk perception of bank loans and education, as well as income. Key words: Risk perception, indebtedness, financial risks, risk tolerance, bank loans, non-bank loans

UV-photochemical generation of cadmium volatile compounds with atomic spectrometric detection
Horová, Kateřina ; Nováková, Eliška (advisor) ; Červený, Václav (referee)
The aim of this master's thesis has been to develop and optimize the method of UV- photochemical vapor generation of cadmium volatile compounds for atomic fluorescence spectrometry. Two configurations with different materials wrapped around the low-pressure mercury vapor lamp were tested. I experimentally determined optimal conditions for both systems; the optimalized parametres included selection of photochemical reagent and its concentration, flow rate of liquids and gases, and the lenghth of the reaction coil. After finding the optimal parametres I determined the figures of merit of the method. I found from the measured data that UV-photoreactor with the quartz capillary provided lower limits of detection and thus was more suitable for generation of cadmium volatile compounds. With this arrangement and using the ferrous sulphate heptahydrate as the chemical modifier I obtained limit of detection 2,0 µg·l-1 , limit of determination 7,0 µg·l-1 , linear dynamic rate LOD-50 µg·l-1 and repeatibility 0,35 %. I also carried out the interference study in my thesis and determined the generation effeciency of cadmium volatile compounds. The interference study shows the influence of mineral acids (HCl, H2SO4, HNO3), their salts (NaNO2, NaNO3) and transition metals (Co, Ni, Cu). Based on literature review I also...

Communication in healtcare with orientation on ambulatory treatment
Horová, Kateřina ; Mellanová, Alena (advisor) ; Pekara, Jaroslav (referee)
The aim of this bachelor thesis was to find out the most frequent causes of conflicts in ambulant components. It was further investigated if there is any influence or whether the appearance and behavior of a nurse has any impact on a problem behavior of a patient. The last goal was to determine how to prevent these conflicts in the area of ambulant components. The theoretical part is focused on definition of the concept of communication and its characteristics. I have focused on the types of communication and emphasize its importance in the profession of a nurse. It is followed by personal characteristics of a nurse. Assertive behavior, which can help to improve the communication between a nurse and a patient, is also mentioned. The empirical part describes a quantitative method of the data collection by questionnaires. The administration of questionnaires, their return and mathematical processing of the data are also described. All is followed by the results and their interpretation. At the end of the thesis there is an evaluation of the formulated hypotheses that have emerged from the objectives of the thesis.

HPLC separation of chlorophenoxypropionic acid derivatives
Horová, Kateřina ; Kalíková, Květa (advisor) ; Šlechtová, Tereza (referee)
This Bachelor's thesis focuses on the separation of chlorophenoxypropionic acids and their derivatives by a high-performance liquid chromatography. The separations were performed in a reversed phase mode. These compounds are employed as herbicides, i.e. chemical substances to control unwanted plants, to kill weeds. The herbicides studied for the purposes of this thesis were 2-(4-chloro-2-methylphenoxy)propionic acid, 2-(2,4- dichlorophenoxy)propionic acid, 2-(2-chlorophenoxy)propionic acid, 2-(3- chlorophenoxy)propionic acid and 2-(4-chlorophenoxy)propionic acid. The study aimed at finding and optimizing chromatographic conditions for simultaneous separation of all five herbicides mentioned above. The analysis employed two types of columns, that is ZORBAX SB-C8 column and ZORBAX Eclipse XDB-C18 column whose level of polarity differ. As mobile phases, there were used acetonitrile/water, acetonitrile/formic acid, pH 2.1 and methanol/formic acid, pH 2.1 in various volume ratios. ZORBAX SB-C8 column, mobile phase methanol/formic acid (concentration of 0.365 mol/l, pH 2.1) 40/60 (v/v), temperature of 25řC, and flow rate of 1 ml/min delivered the most convenient separation conditions. Given these isocratic conditions, all the herbicides were baseline separated within 80 minutes. Keywords: HPLC,...
