   var y=1;
   window.addEventListener("storage", DisplayChange);
   function DisplayEvent(event) {
      document.getElementById("Sample").innerHTML = "The number of visits has been updated";
   }
   function CreateVisits() {
      y++;
      var x=window.open("","WINDOW_1","width=350,height=350");
      x.localStorage.setItem("VISITS",y);
