Twenty- year old Paul Harris is no stranger to the “from rags to riches story”. While not yet at the riches, the youth advocate has risen from humble beginnings in Spanish Town Jamaica, to travel to at least 4 continents, including Europe and South America, representing Jamaica on official visits.
The 4th year UTech Jamaica student continues to offer selfless service to his community and country. As Founder and Executive Director of International Youth Foundation; IYF, Paul is currently implementing the Substance Abuse Prevention Programme which aims to improve life-skills and development assets of 300 adolescents (ages 12-14) at risk in 20 secondary schools in the Corporate Area and St. Catherine Forty university students and youth advocates will be trained to facilitate these interactive sessions over a 12 -week period with the objective of enhancing participants’ life-skills and knowledge on the consequences of drug use. In a recent visit to China, Paul was intrigued by China’s popular application known as WeChat (Chinese version of Whatsapp) which allows residents to purchase whatever good or service they so desire with or without money by simply scanning a barcode with your cell phone. It was surprising to him to see that even small “corna shops” accommodated the use of this application. As such, he is even more convinced that Byzmarsol has much to offer!

Google Trends is a public web facility of Google Inc., based on Google Search, that shows how often a particular search-term is entered relative to the total search-volume across various regions of the world, and in various languages.
Google Trends is an online search tool that allows the user to see how often specific keywords, subjects, and phrases have been queried over a specific period of time.
Google Trends works by analyzing a portion of Google searches to compute how many searches have been done for the terms entered, relative to the total number of searches done on Google over the same time. Although the data provided by Google Trends is updated daily, Google includes a disclaimer that the data Trends produces “may contain inaccuracies for a number of reasons, including data-sampling issues and a variety of approximations that are used to compute results.”
It’s possible to query up to five words or topics simultaneously in Google Trends. Results are displayed in a graph that Google calls a “Search Volume Index” graph. Data in the graph can be exported into a .csv (Comma Separated Values File) file, which can be opened in Excel and other spreadsheet applications.
A feature called “Hot Searches” displays a list of the day’s top 40 search queries in the United States. Another feature called Google Trends for Websites analyzes website traffic, rather than traffic for specific search terms. The data includes unique visitors and a regions column, which shows the percentage of visitors from a specific geographical region. “Also visited” and “also searched for” columns show other websites and other search terms that a site’s visitors are likely to visit and search for.
In 2008, Google announced Google Insights for Search, a service that offers more advanced features for displaying search trends data. Search engine marketers can use Google Insights to fine tune their keyword strategies because it allows them to examine search cycles and patterns for specific keywords and a keyword’s popularity by location and time range.
