# I have a series of constants that use the following format:

# These constants are called in the method below
# url, name, deep only apply to my scraper class and is used for parsing so it's not an issue here
# If no data is found for the current week, new data is created - this works fine
# However, if data is found for the current week, I want to update that data using the constant above
# Keep in mind that I have 37 constants which house different fields and this method is being used for all of them.
# If I try update it says that wrong number of arguments 1 for 2. I'm not sure how to use update with values
