Cohabitations: trends and patterns
Ptáčková, Kateřina ; Rychtaříková, Jitka (advisor) ; Bartoňová, Dagmar (referee)
This work deals with assessing the trends and patterns of cohabitation in European countries. On the basis of in depth analysis of available data, the Czech Republic might be classified among countries with similar trends and patterns of cohabitation. Foreign scientific literature, international surveys, censuses and population registers were used as the source information. This study also addresses family policy and legal regulations, which govern the relationships of cohabitation, have an impact on the context of cohabitation formation and thus create the conditions in which couples decide whether to marry or not. Cohabitations is a complex and complicated phenomenon so that it is not quite possible to come to definite conclusions. The low frequency of cohabitation and high proportion of divorced cohabitants, ranks the Czech Republic into countries of central and eastern Europe. However, the cohabitation structured according to the highest level of education or other indicators is in this group wholly different. Powered by TCPDF (www.tcpdf.org)
Lifestyle, food trends and social position: limits and possibilities of application of the Pierre Bourdieu's model to partial research of lifestyle and eating habits in the Czech Republic
Hypšová, Veronika ; Soukup, Petr (advisor) ; Ptáčková, Kateřina (referee)
Bachelor's work is focused on lifestyle and eating habits and how are these facts affected by positioning of the individual in the social space. Theory was primary based on Pierre Bourdieu's concept of space of lifestyle and space of food, secondary also on works of others sociologists and anthropologists. Research tool is online questionnaire; survey was conducted via CASI panel. Survey was analysed through particular social groups based on typology and also on basic sociodemographic characteristics. Analysis confirmed that there exist statistically significant differences between some of groups, consequently differences in lifestyle and food preferences based on positioning of individual in the social space can be stated.
IN ATTENDANCE OF PUBLIC..analysis of public discussion about the transport policy of city district Prague 6
Ptáčková, Kateřina ; Kabele, Jiří (advisor) ; Illner, Michal (referee)
Using the instruments of discourse analysis these master theses intend to explore, what is the core of the transport policy discussion in Prague, what are the main sources and discourses forming it. The discussion on the transport policy in one of the Prague city district's is used not only for the analysis of the transport base of the discussion but also as the illustration of forming the public discussion in general. The analysis focuses on the roles of two main groups of collective actors of public decision-making - elected politicians (local authority) and NGOs. Discourse is in analysis understood in the Foucault's view as the practices which form the objects of which they speak and do not speak. With reference to Fairclough it concentrates also on the specific role of individual actors. The analysis indicates that the main sources of the good transport solution are their suitable transport funcioning, evironmental assets and public support. First two sources are discussed in the first part of the thesis. The public support source is discused in the second part of analysis, dealing with the democratic discourse. The democratic discourse is identified as the framing discourse of the public discussion in general. Public participation and deliberation are considered both by politicians and NGOs to be...
Changes in preferences for heterozygosity in MHC genes across the menstrual cycle
Ptáčková, Kateřina ; Havlíček, Jan (advisor) ; Janotová, Kateřina (referee)
5 Abstract Products of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) plays key role in immune system of vertebrates. Prior studies on different vertebrate species show, that heterozygosity in MHC genes is linked to more efficient immune system and preferred in mate choice. Results of human studies are ambivalent, which can be due to the effect of some modulating factors like reproductive status. Therefore, our aim was to test heterozygosity related preferences in faces, odor and voice across menstrual cycle. Our sample consisted of 51 men and 52 women, from which 23 used hormonal contraception and 29 had natural cycle. They were genotyped in -A, -B and -DR alleles. All odor stimuli, face photos and voice records were rated on seven-point scale in both follicular and luteal phase. Repeated measures ANOVA was used for the analysis. Changes in ratings across the menstrual cycle and heterozygosity were most discernible on voice ratings. Voices of homozygous males were rated more attractive than voices of heterozygous males especially in follicular phase. Similar shift to higher ratings in follicular phase was manifested in ratings of homozygous male faces, but the difference between homozygous males and heterozygous males was not significant. Women with natural cycle also rated voices higher in their follicular phase...
