Effects of Alcohol Use on the Family
In my bachelor's thesis, I focus on the impacts of alcohol on the family. Alcohol not only affects the individual but also has an impact on the family and its members. The aim of the bachelor's thesis is to find out which topics are mentioned by family members in connection with a family member's alcohol use. To achieve this goal, a semi-structured interview method was used with communication partners.The communication partners are individuals whose family member uses alcohol.
Psychosocial aspects of pathological gambling
This bachelor thesis focuses on the psychosocial aspects of pathological gambling and examines the factors that can lead to this addiction; and thus its impact on the psychological and social spheres. The theoretical part describes the different classifications of addiction, gambling, pathological gambling including etiology, consequences of pathological gambling, treatment, prevention along with relapse and social work with pathological gamblers. In the practical part, a qualitative research strategy was used which included semi-structured interviews and content analysis of the data. The research showed that the factors leading to pathological gambling were many and it was not possible to pinpoint which factor caused the addiction, however, there were factors that kept recurring. Pathological gambling has a negative impact on the whole social sphere, such as family, partner and friendship relationships, employment, financial situation and hobbies. Similarly, pathological gambling has a negative impact on the psychosomatic state. Regarding the motivation of pathological gamblers to address their addiction or to enter treatment, research has shown that pathological gamblers are often unable to address their situation themselves and need external motivation and support to find solutions, as they initially downplay the situation and do not address it. However, external factors lead them to consider the behaviour and in the end they are internally motivated and actively address the seriousness of their situation. Research has also revealed some lesser-known phenomena that co-occur with gambling addiction, namely gambling delusions, attentional selection and the fact that the amounts wagered during relapse are much higher than before abstinence. The bachelor's thesis may represent a resource for extending and improving social work with pathological gamblers. This research can also serve as information material for the general public and provide a basis for further studies in this area.

Dynamic load during reactive strength tasks
Kováč, Dan ; Hojka, Vladimír (advisor) ; Vindušková, Jitka (referee)
Title: Dynamic load during reactive strength tasks Objectives: Objectives were to explore and measure biomechanic parameters of athletes performing different reactive strength tasks using force plates. Methods: 8 male athletes (22,4 ± 1,2 years; 76,3 ± 4,3 kg) took part in experiment. Each of them performed 8 different reactive strength tasks (alternate and single leg bounds, pogo jumps on place, low hurdle jumps, high hurdle jumps 76 cm and 91 cm and long jump take off from 8 and 12 steps approach). Dynamics of tasks was measured using Kistler 9281 EA with sample rate of 1000 Hz. Main observed parameters were maximum vertical force, time to peak force, contact time and impulse. Data were processed in MATLAB R2022a (The MathWorks, Inc. Natick, Massachusetts, USA) and Microsoft Excel 2019. Results: Differences in dynamics of reactive tasks were observed among single leg and double leg exercises. Double leg exercises had much longer time to peak of vertical force than single leg exercises. Biggest vertical forces were observed during single leg bounds, where overload reached seven times body weight. On the other hand lowest peak of vertical force was measured during long jump takeoff from eight steps approach. Maximal forces got higher and contact time shorter with increased approach speed during...
Greta Thunberg, Fridays for Future and the German climate policy
Ondrušíková, Karolína ; Nigrin, Tomáš (advisor) ; Kochnowski, Roman (referee)
The master thesis deals with the potential influence of Greta Thunberg and Fridays for Future on the development of discussions in the German Bundestag in 2018-2021. In August 2018, Greta Thunberg started protesting in front of the Swedish Parliament against the violation of the Paris Agreement. That was adopted at the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in 2015 by all parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, committing them to take significant action to keep global warming below 1.5 řC. Other protesters began to join Greta, and already in September 2018, the international student movement Fridays for Future was established, organizing a climate strike every Friday. Through the analysis of the protocols from the sessions of German Bundestag, the thesis aims to find out how the person of Greta Thunberg, together with the protests of the Fridays for Future movement, was reflected in the German Bundestag during the global climate strikes. Among other things, the thesis aims to answer the question of whether and, if applicable, how the form of discussions on this topic changed between 2018-2021, and whether the activities of Greta Thunberg and the Fridays for Future had an impact on the development and importance of climate policy in Germany. The thesis is based on the hypothesis...
Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics in Structural Dynamics
Hušek, Martin ; Králik,, Juraj (referee) ; Maňas,, Pavel (referee) ; Kala, Jiří (advisor)
The focus of the thesis is on the application of the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method in structural dynamics with an emphasis on usage of quasi-brittle materials. The first part is focused on the introduction, history, and theoretical background of SPH. Numerical examples in which strengths and weaknesses of SPH are shown follow. In addition to pure SPH models, several coupling approaches with the Finite Element Method (FEM) are also discussed. After the introduction of SPH, the focus is on quasi-brittle materials and their reinforced variants. The numerical concept and mathematical background of the Continuous Surface Cap Model are outlined, several benchmarks are presented. Strain-rate effects and their impact on pure SPH and coupled SPH-FEM models are evaluated next. In this section, the author proposes a new approach for SPH models reinforcement with FEM beam elements. The coupling approach was named sublayer coupling and shows a potential in simulations while the SPH tensile instability is alleviated. Since concrete is often associated with heterogeneity and very specific material structure, a unique algorithm for concrete structure generation in combination with SPH is proposed in the next chapter. The concept is based on utilization of coherent noise functions which can bring a variability to numerical models. It has been proved that the algorithm is robust, stable, and easy to implement into the SPH framework. With regard to that, the so-called numerical heterogeneity, a concept of parameters variability implementation, is introduced together with examples. The last part of the thesis is dedicated to the application of SPH in real experiments. The first experiment focuses on a high velocity impact. The second experiment deals with an explosion in which the focus is on both the loaded specimen and charge. Since SPH simulates the explosive, detonation products, and the loaded specimen, it is a fully coupled fluid-structure interaction simulation.
Game Over: Death in video games and impact of videogame Brothers: Tale of Two Sons on gamers
Khan, Jakub ; Švelch, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Švelch, Jan (referee)
Videogames are no longer just an entertainment product for certain interest groups, they are a global mass medium for all generations that can be used for purposes other than entertainment. The subject of this thesis is videogames and their influence on gamers. The aim is then to find out how male and female gamers perceive death in videogames, what emotions and reactions this contact evokes in them, and whether videogames can change their perception of death. The research was conducted through a qualitative study, conducted through semi- structured interviews with male and female gamers who first played the videogame Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, which contained a narrative type of death. From the conducted research it was found that the videogame was able to evoke strong emotions in the male and female players, especially negative ones such as sadness, fear, or regret, caused by contact with the unexpected death of the main character they had been playing all along. The evocation of these emotions was enhanced by the simple controls and simple puzzles, allowing for a greater focus on the story, as well as the interactivity of the videogame and belonging to the protagonist. Only one participant out of six in the research succeeded in changing the perception of death in a positive direction, but...
