TOKYO — Uniqlo’s corporate parent Fast Retailing’s first-half numbers slumped, but the company raised its full-year profit guidance and only slightly cut its sales target, appearing to shrug off the impact of Japan’s earthquake disaster last month even as a 7.1 aftershock rattled the northern part of the country late Thursday.
The retailer said net profit for the six months ended Feb. 28 fell 24.7 percent to 41.67 billion yen, or $503 million at average exchange.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
