When the bacterium E. coli is cultured in a lab, researchers add citrate to the flasks as a chelating agent.  It's not there to feed the bacteria, it's just used to bind metal ions in the solution.  But in one lab, after 30,000 generations, the bacteria mutated to be able to eat it.  Subsequent mutations improved their utilization of this new food source through the process of natural selection.

The Beatles "Birthday" a Drum Cover By Emily

Hi, my name is Emily. I am 8 years old and this is my eighth video.

Went to see a comedy show and thought the place was awesome. The neighborhood is way nicer than it was just a few years ago. The menu items all looked fantastic and the cocktail I ordered, a cucumber collins, was delicious, the burger was juicey (maybe too much, it did drip) but the fries were unique and sooo good. Our waiter was really nice and remembered our party's staggered ordering with no issues - he even followed our orders from the deck to the top floor for the show. I am definitely going back.
