```    stat = Partition[Table[0, {20}], 2]
{{0,0},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0}}

stat[[1]] = {29, -17};
stat
{{29,-17},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0}}

stat[[{3,5}]]={{"Hello","world!"},{x,y}};
stat
{{29,-17},{0,0},{Hello,world!},{0,0},{x,y},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0},{0,0}}

about List some more.  Don't use iteration if you don't need to.)
