RIO DE JANEIRO Hydro Flask Beer 10 Oz Wine Tumbler Verdi Italia , July 22 (Xinhua) -- Brazil's media and past players reacted with a mix of praise and scorn to the appointment of Dunga as national soccer coach for a second time.

The 1994 World Cup-winning captain on Tuesday replaced Luiz Felipe Scolari, who resigned last week following Brazil's failure to reach the World Cup final as hosts and pre-tournament favorites.

Dunga's appointment comes four years after he was sacked from the same position after Brazil's quarterfinal loss to the Netherlands at the 2010 World Cup.

Folha de S.Paulo said Dunga's focus on discipline and methodical planning allowed him to mould a ""powerful team bereft of stars"" during his first spell in charge from 2006 to 2010.

His return reflected ""a need for greater commitment"" to the national shirt, the newspaper added.

Former forward Pepe, a member of Brazil's 1958 and 1962 World Cup-winning teams, described Dunga as ""a guy with attitude"" and somebody ""who doesn't hide behind a wall.""

""He is going to select players that are prepared to work Hydro Flask Hydration 24 Oz Standard Bocca Bianche Italia ,"" the 79-year-old added.

Jairzinho, who played in Brazil's 1970 World Cup triumph, said Dunga's previous spell as Selecao coach would hold the team in good stead.

""He has experience and showed everybody what he is capable of,"" he said. ""He is very well qualified for the role.""

Among the harshest critics was the Rio de Janeiro-based Globo newspaper, which bemoaned the return of ""a man who has no desire to make football beautiful.""

Another trenchant critic was Estado de S.Paulo columnist Robson Morelli Hydro Flask Hydration 24 Oz Standard Bocca Rosse Italia , who wrote: ""Dunga is the biggest error in the history of the Brazilian football confederation.""

""The coach is the same as he has always been. He will close the team and use players that he trusts and that aren't always the best to prepare his battles. The CBF is going to have a lot to answer for one day. We all know Dunga.""

Waldir Peres, Brazil's goalkeeper during the 1982 World Cup, also disapproved of the decision.

The former Sao Paulo stopper said he would have preferred ex-Corinthians coach Tite or Sao Paulo manager Muricy Ramalho in the role.

""I don't think he is the right person,"" Peres said. ""Brazil needed a new coach who has been able to get results at club level. I don't have high hopes.""

Former defender Junior, who played in the 1982 and 1986 World Cups Hydro Flask Hydration 21 Oz Standard Bocca W Sport Cap Nere Italia , said the appointment could have been influenced by off-field motives.

""He is somebody who isn't afraid of a confrontation,"" Junior said. ""He will leave the board of directors less exposed in this transitional period. I would have liked to see somebody new in the job, but it's not enough to want.""


At least 37 people, including call center staff from an American firm, are believed to have perished in a fire that tore through a shopping mall in the southern Philippine city of Davao Hydro Flask Hydration 21 Oz Standard Bocca Rosse Italia , local authorities said yesterday.

President Rodrigo Duterte, himself a Davao native, visited distraught relatives outside the burning building overnight but told them there was “zero” chance their loved ones had survived.

Firemen found one body as the blaze was finally extinguished yesterday, Davao Mayor Sara Duterte, the president’s daughter Hydro Flask Hydration 21 Oz Standard Bocca Verdi Italia , told reporters.

Firemen concluded that all those trapped in the building are dead, she said, adding, “They assessed that no one would survive in that heat and with that thick, black smoke.”

The deadly fire adds fresh misery for the mainly Catholic Philippines at Christmas as the death toll from a tropical storm that hit the south of the country last Friday crossed 200 and with tens of thousands displaced by severe flooding and landslides.

The blaze started at the four-storey NCCC Mall on Saturday morning Hydro Flask Hydration 21 Oz Standard Bocca Blu Italia , sending thick plumes of black smoke billowing into the sky over Davao.

With low wages but strong English language skills, the Philippines is a popular destination for international companies to set up customer call centers.

The building’s top floor housed a 24-hour call center for the US-based market research company SSI.

Jimmy Quimsing, a retired seaman, was one of the relatives desperately waiting for news. His 25-year-old son Jim Benedict worked at the call center and had not been in contact since the fire broke out.

Quimsing said he spoke to President Duterte and had been told to prepare for the worst.

“He told us ... no one would survive under these circumstances,” he said.

Paolo Duterte Hydro Flask Hydration 21 Oz Standard Bocca W Sport Cap Verdi Italia , the president’s son and the vice mayor of Davao, also wrote on Facebook that fire officials had told him there was “zero” chance of anyone trapped surviving the blaze.

In a statement on its local Facebook page, SSI said it would set up a “command center” for the relatives of those missing. “Please continue to pray for everyone’s safety,” it added.

Fire marshal Honeyfritz Alagano said the blaze may have started by a spark on the third floor of the mall, which had a furniture section.

“One of our firemen here has a kid who is (a call center) agent there. He told us some of them went to collect their stuff at their lockers and were trapped Hydro Flask Hydration 40 Oz Wide Bocca Rosse Italia ,” Alagano said. “The mall is an enclosed space with no ventilation. When our firemen tried to enter they were pushed back by smoke and fire.”

Mayor Duterte said she told the fire fighters to retrieve all the dead, stressing, “You do not stop until you find 37.”

She also said the circumstances surrounding the fire would be investigated but added that it was too early to say who was at fault.

Deadly blazes occur regularly in the Philippines, particularly in slum areas where there are virtually no fire safety standards.

“It’s possible that while they were working, they did not immediately notice the fire spreading Hydro Flask Hydration 32 Oz Wide Bocca W Straw Lid Bianche Italia ,” Davao police officer Ralph Canoy said.
