Hi, Frank.

As part of the process of re-examining your null hypothesis (as
Maarten suggested), you should keep in mind that, in any such model
with multiple predictor variables, the p-value for a particular
predictor reflects its contribution to the dependent variable after
the contributions of all the other predictors have been accounted for
(or adjusted for).
