Public Shared ReadOnly UriSchemeNews As String

Dim address6 As Uri = New Uri("news:123456@contoso.com")
If address6.Scheme = Uri.UriSchemeNews Then
  outputBlock.Text &= "Uri is an Internet news group"
  outputBlock.Text &= vbCrLf
End If
Uri address6 = new Uri("news:123456@contoso.com");
if (address6.Scheme == Uri.UriSchemeNews)
    outputBlock.Text += "Uri is an Internet news group\n"; 
Uri address4 = new Uri("news:123456@contoso.com");
if (address4.Scheme == Uri.UriSchemeNews)
