When I ask for the results ("stuff"), all I'm getting is the final variable calculated ("bsiaicORSD") as shown here.  I need the function to return both "bsiaicOR" and "bsiaic".  What do I need to do to get foreach to give me both back? I've tried using a "return" statement within the foreach loop but got a "multi argument returns are not permitted" error message.

   bsiaicOR <-  apply(results$OR, c(1,2), mean)
   bsiaicORSD <- apply(results$OR, c(1,2), sd)
