Investing in UK banking shares is an extremely risky business, I feel. I’ve recently explained why an economic hangover following Covid-19 and Brexit could damage profits at Lloyds in the short term. The threat of low interest rates could wreak havoc on the bottom line for much longer too.Now, Barclays (LSE: BARC) has a couple of tricks up its sleeve that Lloyds doesn’t. It has considerable exposure to the US, a quality that will allow it to navigate a prolonged downturn in the UK much better than its rivals. The FTSE 100 bank also has an investment bank that could help group profits recover strongly during the inevitable bull market.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…UK banking shares to book big lossesThat’s not to say I’d buy Barclays. The risks posed by Covid-19 alone to UK shares like these are colossal, as a recent report from McKinsey & Company illustrates. The consultancy reckons that, “the pandemic will present a two-stage problem for banks… First will come severe credit losses, likely through late 2021, [then] amid a muted global recovery, banks will face a profound challenge to ongoing operations that may persist beyond 2024.”McKinsey estimates that $3.7trn of lost revenue will be endured by the world’s banks between 2020 and 2024. This is “the equivalent of more than a half year of industry revenues that will never come back,” it says. But beware, as it reckons the final bill could be even bigger. Under its worst-case scenario, the consultancy predicts lost revenues of $4.7trn.What’s more, McKinsey believes banks will make a jaw-dropping $2.7trn worth of loan-loss provisions over the next four years. Barclays has set aside £4.3bn of Covid-19-related credit impairment charges already. The costs to UK banking shares are likely to keep stacking up.Dividend yields in danger?Barclays clearly isn’t without risk. But fans of the bank would argue that its troubles are baked in at current share prices. The FTSE 100 firm trades on an ultra-low forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 11 times. This is built on City forecasts suggesting that annual profits will rocket 74% in 2021.This figure isn’t enough to tempt me to invest though. And neither is Barclays’ inflation-mashing dividend yield of 3.5% for next year.This month the Prudential Regulatory Authority lifted the temporary ban on bank dividends imposed back in the spring. It said that “banks remain well capitalised and are expected to be able to continue to support the real economy through this period of disruption.” Barclays and its peers it could end up disappointing those expecting chunky dividends, however. A steady build in bad loans and sagging revenues growth are one problem. Balance sheet protection as the global and domestic economies recover from Covid-19 is another.I’m not risking my hard-earned cash with Barclays or Lloyds. There are many other cheap UK shares I’d rather buy in my ISA for 2021. And The Motley Fool can help you to discover them today and make a fortune during the new bull market.

Dickson to take action on the decision that the high court remitted to Dickson for enforcement nearly 2 years ago.Because Dickson “is in the process of scheduling hearings on the matters filed in the circuit court, we are confident that (the judge) will resolve the petition to enforce the judgment, as well as any related matters that are pending, in an expeditious manner,” the order says.The order was signed by Chief Justice Donald W. Beatty and Justices John W. Kittredge, John Cannon Few and George C. James Jr. Justice Kaye G. Hearn did not participate.The disputed properties currently are under the control of a group led by Bishop Mark Lawrence that left The Episcopal Church in 2012 and then sued the church in an attempt to keep the property.TECSC and The Episcopal Church filed the petition for writ of mandamus on March 20, noting it was seeking such an “extraordinary remedy” because the delay in enforcing the high court’s decision is continuing to cause harm to the church and its diocese.To date, the Orangeburg-based court has held one scheduling conference and one hearing on a motion for “clarification” filed by the disassociated group. Another hearing that had been scheduled for March 27 was cancelled a few days beforehand, and the court has not set a new date.

2 COMMENTS December 8, 2020 at 1:06 pm From the Orange County Newsroom Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. James Wickman Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 The Anatomy of Fear The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized three specific types of tests for diagnosing a COVID-19 infection, but they do not all work the same way, nor do they tell you the same information.Here is what you need to know about each one.Diagnostic Tests (aka PCR Test)Diagnostic (molecular) tests detect the genetic material unique in COVID-19 using a lab technique such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or other techniques that amplify the virus in order to identify. Fluid is collected from a nasal or throat swab and is usually sent to an outside lab. PCR tests are highly sensitive and specific for diagnosing current infection. PCR tests are considered the most accurate and “gold standard” for diagnosing current infection.PCR tests use a nasopharyngeal swab, which goes deep into your nose to the back of your throat. However, a few days may pass before the virus starts replicating in your throat and nose, so PCR tests will not identify someone who has recently been infected. Other things to note:If you need to travel out of the country or for any other purpose, a molecular test is most likely required.Lab results are needed and are usually sent back in approximately 48 hours (this varies depending on lab demand).Antigen Test (aka Rapid Test)Using a nasal or throat swab to get a fluid sample, health workers administer antigen tests to detect certain proteins in COVID-19. This test is often called a “rapid test” because the turnaround time is usually much quicker than a PCR test (it can produce results in about 15 minutes). Because of this, antigen tests are being used to screen large numbers of people and have been in high public demand.Antigen tests are intended for symptomatic persons within 5-12 days of onset of symptoms.While antigen tests are considered very specific, they are less sensitive then PCR.An antigen test is more likely to miss active infection than a PCR test, so it is recommended you not only just rely on an antigen test if you have symptoms and/or have been at-risk for exposure to COVID-19. You should make sure to get both an antigen and a PCR test to ensure accuracy. Other things to consider:Rapid tests do not detect false positives (unless something is wrong with the actual test), but if you do not show any symptoms, there is a chance the test can be false negative.If you have COVID symptoms and you get back a negative antigen test, you still need a PCR test and should consider yourself to have COVID until the results of the PCR test are known.At hospitals, they will most likely offer you a rapid test first. If you test positive, they will give you a PCR test to ensure accuracy.Antibody Test (aka Serology Test or Blood Test)The antibody test indicates if your immune system has produced antibodies to COVID-19, regardless of whether you ever showed symptoms. Locally, OneBlood is testing all blood donations for the COVID-19 antibody. These tests generally produce results in a few minutes based on a drop of blood taken from the finger. If you take a test too early—while your immune system is still mounting its defense—it may not provide an accurate result. The Mayo Clinic does not recommend antibody testing until at least 14 days after the start of symptoms.Remember, even if you test positive for antibodies, it does not make you “immune” for a long period or indefinite amount of time … so you must still protect others who are not immune.Free Testing ResourcesBoth molecular (PCR) and antigen (rapid) tests are now being administered at the Orange County Government Health Services testing site.

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter In your comments about the PCR being the “gold standard” you left out information regarding current questions about its reliability without knowing the cycle threshold of the sample. As I understand it the lower number of times the test sample is cycled (replicated) to obtain a positive the higher the probability of having the virus, however the higher number of cycles the less reliable the test result is to the point that if is cycled over 40 times and a positive is obtained the test result is considered negative. So on December 3 Governor DeSantis, through the FDOH, ordered labs to include the cycle threshold number in their results reported to the state.

According to the Nicaraguan Centre for Human Rights (CENIDH), at least 48 people have disappeared and 42 have been killed in the course of clashes between (mainly student) protesters and the police, who are accused of using excessive force.Aged 42, Gahona was based in Bluefields, a town on southern Nicaragua’s Caribbean coast, where he produced the local TV news programme El Meridiano and was a correspondent for Nicaragua’s Canal 6 TV channel.He was covering a protest in Bluefields on Facebook Live on 22 April when he sustained a fatal gunshot wound to the head. It is not known who fired the shot but, according to reporters for the La Prensa newspaper, the regular police and riot police were the only people who were armed at the time.In an interview for Univision more than a week after his murder, his wife, Migueliuth Sandoval, and his son said the local authorities had still not contacted them or provided them with any information.Sandoval said she has received threats designed to deter her from continuing to demand the truth about her husband’s murder. She also explained that he was reporting on Facebook Live at the time of his death because the government had shut down local TV broadcasting.“The authorities will not end the protests in Nicaragua by silencing journalists and censoring the media, and it is incomprehensible that they have not yet ordered an investigation into Ángel Eduardo Gahona’s murder,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America desk.“For the sake of his family and all the media in Nicaragua, justice must be done and those responsible for this shocking crime must be quickly identified in order not to encourage more violence against the media. During the current turmoil, the authorities have a duty to do everything necessary to guarantee the safety of journalists and to allow independent coverage of the unrest.”The broadcasts of four TV channels that were providing coverage of the protests – Canal 100% Noticias, Canal 12, Canal 23 and Canal 51 – were taken off the air on 19 April on the orders of the Nicaraguan Institute for Telecommunications (TELECOR). This act of state censorship was condemned by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights on 24 April.Since the start of the protests, there have been reports of hacking attacks against government media and media that support President Daniel Ortega. The attacks have been claimed by the hactivist group Anonymous.Nicaragua is ranked 90th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018World Press Freedom Index.
