    * Some questions asked may include things we have not yet looked at, but take this as a practice on doing research as that is an essential skill as a developer.

    * Create the if-statement-olympics directory on your computer with an index.js file for the assignment, then work on it in Visual Studio Code.
    Also, feel free to practice using ternary statements for extra credit too!

    # Assignment:
    * Outside of Scrimba (in an editor like Visual Studio Code), build a basic HTML page from scratch (no copy/pasting!)
        * Try to do so without looking at any past work if you can.

    # Quiz:
    1. What are some of the differences between getElementById and getElementsByClassName?
    * id - returns a single element/object from the document. class name (tag name) returns an array-like object.
    * id - needs an id to find, class name - needs a class to find
    2. What will `.getElementsByClassName` return if there are no elements with the matching class in the document?
    Returns an empty array
    3. What will `.getElementById` return if there is no element with the matching id in the document?
    // querySelector
    // Select a single element from the page. (Returns the first element
    // var result = document.querySelector("ol#favorite-things > li")
    // console.log(result)
    // querySelectorAll
    // Select all elements from the page that match the query.

    for (var i = 0; i< result.length; i++) {
        result[i].textContent = "** REDACTED **"

    // person.name = "Jim"

     * 1. Select the h1 element
     * 2. Save the h1 element's text to a variable
     * 3. Change the paragraph element's text to be the same as the text

     * Do this completely in JavaScript!

    newP.textContent = "V School rocks!"
    ## Tasks:
    1. Search Google to learn a little more about the difference between the `.append()` method and the `.appendChild()` method
    2. What do you see as pros/cons of using `.createElement()` and `append()` vs. `.innerHTML`?
    3. What happens if I create an element using `.createElement()` but don't use `.append()`?
    4. How might you use a for loop in conjunction with the DOM methods for create elements?
    var powerRangers = [
        {name: "Jason Lee Scott", color: "Red"}, 
        {name: "Kimberly Hart", color: "Pink"},
