FIALA, L. (2020): Tour de France: The effects of the geographical features of the race and stages on the results of the best cyclists and their change over time. Diploma thesis, Prague: Charles University, Faculty of Science, 152 pp. The diploma thesis deals with Tour de France, a three-week bicycle race whose first edition was in 1903. The work's goal is to analyse the evolution of the most important cycling race in the world after the World War II in terms of its geographical features, which affect the performance of racers, and so to differentiate successful cyclists based on their qualities on one hand and identify those parts of the race (stages) that are crucial to success, on the other hand. Another goal of the thesis is to find out how the influence of geographical conditions on performance changes over time and whether and how the categories (types) of cyclist change in this context. The work is consisted into two parts: the theoretical-methodological part and the analysis of the subject of interest. The theoretical and methodological part is based on the approaches and knowledge of sport geography, while it is almost impossible to rely on real research publications devoting to cycling and stage races. The relevant literature dealing with stage races, the Grand Tour and especially the Tour...
Development of functional socio-economic specialization of the United Arab Emirates - comparison of Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
Koblížková, Adéla ; Tomeš, Jiří (advisor) ; Pulec, Jan (referee)
Over the past 50 years, the United Arab Emirates have undergone rapid development as a result of the country's extensive oil reserves, and currently find themselves in a state of economic prosperity. However, despite being one of the richest countries in the world and recently entering upon a path to end its oil dependency, the industries associated with crude oil remain a key pillar of the Emirati economy. The objective of this paper is to examine whether the current government's diversification strategy, which aims to foster industries not built upon the drilling or processing of oil, has been successful. A particularly interesting aspect of this issue is the contrast between the country's two largest emirates, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, whose specific socioeconomic indicators are compared within. The results of this analysis demonstrate that the structural foci of the two economies are markedly different. Whilst drilling and construction remain the focal points of Abu Dhabi's economy, the economy of Dubai has transitioned into the sphere of trade and transportation. Keywords: United Arab Emirates, diversification, oil, financial crisis
