Does Uryū Ishida care for rukia?

Uryu Ishida has feelings for Rukia, but it is nothing more than a good friendship. Before, i mean during the 'Saving Rukia Ark.', he wanted to save Rukia to make Ichigo very mad. Now, as the series prolongs, they both have become good friends. I do not think these two will get together, due to their different 'status.' Rukia is a Soul Reaper, him a Quincy; naturally, they are enemies. But in any anime, you can never know.

Has anyone ever won that PCH-publishers clearing house contest?

From everything I've read and from their contest letters, I've come to the conclusion that people have won prizes from the PCH contests.

Publishers Clearing House is best known for its dramatic sweepstakes, a marketing campaign that offers millions of dollars in prizes every year.

SINCE the NUMBERS were PRESELECTED, Publishers Clearing House COULD PROMOTE the sweepstakes truthfully with the words, "YOU MAY ALREADY BE A WINNER!"

At first PCH did not feel obligated to award prizes if no winning entry was received, but later a second random drawing came to be held from entries submitted if no one turned in the winning number for the top prize.

By late 1991, Publishers Clearing House had DISTRIBUTED MORE THAN $50 million in prizes to more than two million people, including $13 million in fiscal 1991.

The Federal Trade Commission's expert on sweepstakes said...Being labeled a "FINALIST," he declared, generally merely meant that the contestant had sent in a previous entry. The FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION'S EXPERT "...also noted that the $10 million prize was not given in a lump sum, but over 30 years, with $2.5 million not paid out until the final year. Million-dollar winners received only $50,000 in the first year.

In 1994, PCH agreed to pay $490,000 to 14 states to settle allegations that it used deceptive advertising in its annual sweepstakes. The company agreed to stop using the word "finalist" on most solicitations and to employ the phrase "final round" only in the last weeks of the promotions.

By January 1996, PCH had awarded more than $92 million in prizes since instituting its sweepstakes.

Publishers Clearing House stated they were going to name a winner of one of the contests tonight on NBC Nightly News which was not - does anyone know anything about it?

I've seen this happen before, years ago. What actually seems to happen is that sometime during the 1/2 hour newscast, the winners name is flashed upon the screen. When I saw it, it didn't seem to actually be PART OF the newscast - in other words, the newspeople didn't announce it, and it didn't flash on the screen while they were talking. It almost seemed like a commercial that was designed to look like part of the newscast.

The point is, if it is a paid announcement, NBC Nightly News wouldn't know anything about it at all. They only know what is on their show. When they cut to commercial, they don't have any idea what the commercial is.

Therefore, when PCH says that the name of the winner is going to be announced "during" the NBC Nightly News, they are correct. It is 'during' the news. But it isn't necessarily ON the news, or BY the NBC News Crew. So they aren't breaching any ethics - they're just telling you when they'll be announcing. Insinuating that NBC Nightly News is a part of it is a marketing technique that gives it more credibility.

If anyone else has different info, please step in and correct me.
