TUESDAY 7PM NCIS, 8PM FBI a new series from Dick Wolf of Law Order fame, 9PM NCIS NEW ORLEANS. Results indicated no differences in proportion of the Broad Autism Phenotype in parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders in either sample. With regard to the neuropsychological measures utilized in Sample 1, Letter Number Sequencing score (working memory) only was predictive of total correct on the Reading the Mind in the Eyes Task (RMET); no other neuropsychological measures predicted BAP characteristics, nor were these measures predictive of self reported coping strategy use or scores on a measure of social inference making. However, in both samples, self report of Planning and Organizing behaviour as measured by the Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Functioning (BRIEF) predicted Rigidity; BRIEF Working Memory score was predictive of Pragmatic Language in both samples as well.
A saleswoman for British fashion brand Mulberry talks about one of the brand’s bags to customers at a shop at Lotte Premium Outlets in Paju, north of Seoul, December 7, 2011. REUTERS/Jo Yong HakMulberry, known for its Bayswater and Alexa handbags, makes over 80 percent of its sales in Britain and continental Europe, and has been hit hard recently by weak consumer spending there, as well as cooling demand from Chinese shoppers and tourists.After issuing two profit warnings since October, the firm posted an expected 28 percent drop in annual profit on Thursday.Chief Executive Bruno Guillon has responded in part by taking the group a little more upmarket from its traditional position of luxury.Mulberry hiked prices by 12 percent in November and has launched more handbags priced over 1,000 pounds ($1,600), which it says have gone down well in Asia and the United States.However, the move has attracted some criticism, and was reportedly a factor behind the decision of highly acclaimed Creative Director Emma Hill to announce earlier this week that she planned to leave the business.Guillon played down the shift upmarket, saying 60 percent of products were still on sale for less than 1,000 pounds.The group was having a tough time because it did not have a high enough profile in Asia, and was addressing that by opening more stores in the region, he said. At the same time as growing our business locally, he said.The Frenchman, who has just returned from China, added that while growth in demand for luxury products had slowed in Asia, the opportunities there still far outweighed those in Europe.Mulberry, which opened 17 stores in the year ended March, plans to open 15 20 in its new financial year, pinpointing prime locations and flagship stores in Asia and North America, where it has 42 and 6 stores respectively out of a total of 118.The group is also using higher quality materials and limiting volumes of best sellers to maintain exclusivity.don think that the long term goal of becoming a global brand is beyond Mulberry and therefore we would expect the market to support the shares at around these levels, said Panmure analyst Philip Dorgan, adding he disagreed with the view Guillon was pushing the firm too upmarket, too quickly..
