```Also, note that the p-values will probably not exactly correspond to
conclusions drawn from the bootstrapped confidence limits. They are
two different approaches to the research question. Broadly speaking,
the bootstrapped limits avoid the assumption of a symmetric sampling
distribution that underlies the coefficient/standard error testing
strategy. Using the bootstrap gets you bootstrapped standard errors,
which have less stringent assumptions than normal-theory standard
errors, but the p-value will still reflect the symmetry assumption.
The BCa method allows asymmetric confidence intervals.

I'm not very good with statistics so could someone please take a look at my below code and point me in the right direction with regards to how I can extract the p-values per sample (basically input a Descriptor_Score value and output a p-value based on the bootstrap model)? If my understanding is incorrect, please let me know. This code is mostly from API.
