         var myVal1 = _.extend({name:'Welcome to TutorialsPoint..'}, Backbone.Events);

         // created the 'listenMe' callback function and invoked when one object 
         // listens to particular event on another object
         var listenMe = function() {
            document.write("The value is: ");
            document.write(this.name);
         };

         // The object 'myVal1' listens once for the 'listenMe' event triggered on object 'myVal'
         myVal1.listenTo(myVal, 'listenMe', listenMe);

         // The 'myVal' has no 'listenMe' event and display the value of 'myVal1'
         myVal.trigger('listenMe');

         // The 'myVal1' stops listening to specific event on 'myVal' and displays nothing
