Canaan Dog and Dog Assistant Education
Rutová, Šárka ; Jančaříková, Kateřina (advisor) ; Pavlasová, Lenka (referee)
The topic of this thesis is Canaan dog including dog assistant education. The first part is theoretical and introduces the reader to the Canaan dog breed. The origin of this rare and very old breed is Izrael and first dogs were imported to the Europe and America in 60s of 20th century. The lack of Canaan dogs in Europe causes problems with breeding and transmission of genetic diseases. Especially in the Czech republic there is only few dogs. The teoretical part introduces a transmission of genetic diseases and other diseases. The practical part is focused on a creation of a genealogy of Canaan dogs in the Czech republic. Further I studied inbreeding. In the second part I studied the use of dog in education. The practical part are two education programs, which I created. The first training program is about dogs behaviour, it's also tested in practice and its completed results are part of the appendix. Pupils will learn important information about dogs, how to handle and understand a dog or information about a primitive breed like rare Canaan dog. The second education program is designed for high school students. The program is about inbreeding and includes text and worksheet. Key words: Canaan dog, genetic, heritage, genetic diseases of dogs, inbreeding, animal assistant education.
Extinct settlements as a potencional of tourism in the Bohemian Forest Protected Landscape Area
Koch, Jan ; Fialová, Dana (advisor) ; Kopp, Jan (referee)
This diploma thesis analyzes the potential of tourism in the Bohemian Forest Protected Landscape Area based on the point assessment of selected implementation factors. It examines the role they play in the final potential of the extinct settlements that are located 60 in the area. These settlements are categorized on the basis of the original population, the seat of the site and the visible remains. In detail, 10 of these settlements are selected, selected on the basis of their importance in the past and present. Their location, history and current status are described. The work uses graphs, tables, maps and own photos taken during the field survey. Former settlements in their present form do not have much influence on the overall potential of tourism in the area under consideration, but in some localities it is possible to increase the potential, for example, through the use of educational trails using the forms of local heritage interpretation (just represented by these sites). These are designed in the diploma thesis.

Fišer, Jan ; Kučera, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Tůmová, Martina (referee)
The thesis deals with the analysis of current condition and heritage of old stony routes in the Broumov walls. These routes were built from variously sized sandstone blocks of local origin. The routes are specific for the area of interest and they have their long history. The aim of the thesis is, with the example of the Broumov walls, to discuss the importance of the old routes as specific historical landscape structures and local heritage for shaping of the identity of the region and its specific character. Regional identity, heritage and historical landscape structures belong to key concepts introduced in the theoretical part.

Possibilities for protection and future reconstruction of the stony routes are searched. The...
Inheritance contract as a new institute of succession law
Srp, Michal ; Elischer, David (advisor) ; Thöndel, Alexandr (referee)
The present work deals with an ancient and new-old legal institution of inheritance contract in actual private law. Inheritance contract (pactum successorium) was in the Czech legal order in the 50s of the last century as a traditional historical institute of inheritance law, and was conceived as the strongest inheritance title; its conclusion was nevertheless permissible only between husband and wife or fiancé. The mentioned problems began again to be relevant in the context of the government's draft of Act no. 89/2012 Coll., Civil Code (hereinafter the Civil Code), for the approval of the Chamber of Deputies took place on November 9th, 2011. The re-codification represents a return of inheritance contract to the Czech succession law, but it has also brought a number of other major institutes that current regulation for a long time neglected or did not even know. Institute of inheritance contract emphasizes the will of the testator, to whom gives another opportunity to arrange his property in case of death (mortis causa). Its peculiarity is that it combines both elements: the last will (testamentary nature) from which it has developed and elements of the contract (contractual nature). Powered by TCPDF (
Heritage and Innovation II - Polynesian Literature in English - F. J. Frisbie, Patricia Grace and Sia Figiel: three generations of authors
Binarová, Teata ; Nováková, Soňa (advisor) ; Kolinská, Klára (referee)
The three Polynesian women writers - Florence (Johnny) Frisbie (b. 1932, Cook Islands), Patricia Grace (b. 1937, New Zealand) and Sia Figiel (b. 1967, Samoa) - represent three key stages in the development of Polynesian literature in English that are intrinsically linked to the transforming post-colonial context. Miss Ulysses from Puka-Puka: The Autobiography of a South Sea Trader's Daughter by F. J. Frisbie, published in 1948, is being defined as the founding text of this new literature. The autobiographical work is set in the Polynesian colonial background. Patricia Grace belongs to the first generation of Polynesian authors writing in English. She participates with them in the so-called "Maori Renaissance" that is embedded in the larger pan-Polynesian movement of resistance against British colonial hegemony and of indigenous cultural revivals started in the 1960's. Sia Figiel is a leading writer in the already established Polynesian contemporary literary scene of the 1990's. The region is almost entirely independent by now. The privileged literary themes and the linguistic choices of these three indigenous authors, together with their selected narrative techniques, reflect the on-going political and cultural emancipation of the autochthones. The writers increasingly liberate themselves from the...
Towards new Prague! Traditions, visions and constructing the city and its image after 1945
Kurz, Michal ; Randák, Jan (advisor) ; Činátl, Kamil (referee)
The thesis focuses on the construction and symbolic encoding of Prague from 1945 to the late 1950s, with emphasis on the Stalinist era. Based on an analysis of historical texts and architectural projects, the thesis studies the motivations and tactics, which the post-war political and professional elites sought to manifest their own values and ideological principles in the area of the capital city. Through the analysis of historical concepts of "old" and "new" Prague examines the thesis the changing relationship between tradition and modernity in the image of the city. The sociocultural phenomenon of Stalinism is thematized as a specific part of the long process of modernization, which passes through Prague during the first half of the 20th century. The thesis deals also with the attributes that should characterize the "new" socialist Prague and with the ways of using the Soviet patterns and local historical traditions. Keywords: Prague, city, image of the city, architecture, urbanism, memory, heritage, socialist realism, stalinism, 1950s

Proceedings relating to decedent's estate
Chvalinová, Barbora ; Macková, Alena (advisor) ; Pohl, Tomáš (referee)
The title of my Master's degree thesis is "Proceedings relating to decedent's estate". I have chosen this topic because of many reasons. Although it is a traditional institute of civil procedure law, the topic is still very actual with regard to the new legislation in the Act No. 89/2012 Coll., The Civil Code, which was a significant extension of inheritance law, and the related procedural legislation in the Act No. 292/2013 Coll., on special judicial proceedings. Another reason is that I find this topic interesting, mainly because of its complexity and significant blending of procedural and substantive legislation. Since participation in inheritance proceeding is an inevitable issue in person's life, I wanted to extend my knowledge of the new legislation. Moreover I find this topic wrongfully overlooked in advocacy, to which I would like to head after graduation. The aim of the thesis is to describe the course of proceedings relating to decedent's estate and to show the different stages of the procedure and also include important substantive aspects and institutes which affect this procedure in the extent necessary. With regard to the adoption of new legislation I tried to highlight the most important changes and differences between the new legislation and legislation effective until 31. 12. 2013,...
