            foreach (var item in posts)
                sb.Append("<b>Title: </b>" + item.title);

                sb.Append("<b>Description: </b>" + item.desc);
                sb.Append("<br />");
                sb.Append("<b>Article Link: </b><a target='_blank' href='" + item.contentlink + "'>" + item.contentlink + "</a>");
                sb.Append("<br />");
                sb.Append("<b>Published Date: </b>" + item.pubDate);
                sb.Append("<br />");
                sb.Append("<br />");
        public static IEnumerable<NewsRead> GetFeeds(string url)
            XDocument rssfeedxml;
            XNamespace namespaceName = "http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom";
            rssfeedxml = XDocument.Load(url);
           StringBuilder rssContent = new StringBuilder();
            var list = (from descendant in rssfeedxml.Descendants("item")
                        select new NewsRead
                            title = descendant.Element("title").Value,
                            desc = descendant.Element("description").Value,
