The Mexican tetra comes in different flavors. In normal river habitats, it’s a small, standard-looking, silvery fish. But some groups within the species have made their home in dark, food-scarce caves. Evolution has quickly rid these groups of their resource-hungry eyes and turned them into pinkish, chubby, blind cavefish—with a bunch of metabolic changes that help them survive in the extreme environment.
A paper in Nature this week reports that the cavefish are resistant to insulin, a condition that can cause damage on its own and is often a precursor to diabetes. But the fish somehow don’t suffer the same kinds of tissue damage that humans do we when have insulin resistance. The authors of the paper, led by Harvard geneticist Misty Riddle, report on how they tried to get to the bottom of the genetic mutations that contribute to this metabolic mystery. Their results show just how much variety exists in how different species respond to insulin—and that studying these fish more could help our understanding of diabetes.High blood sugar
After you eat something, your blood sugar rises, and your pancreas releases insulin to deal with the increase. The insulin binds to specialized receptors, found on the surfaces of muscle, fat, and liver cells, telling them to absorb glucose from the blood. In between meals when blood glucose levels drop, a different hormone (glucagon) prompts the liver to release its stored glucose back into the blood.

China's first space station may fall to the ground as soon as one week from now, and certainly within two, orbital debris experts with the European Space Agency (ESA) say. Scientists, however, still cannot predict with any confidence where pieces of the 10.4-meter long Tiangong-1 station, which is traveling at 17,000 km/h, will land.
The latest estimate from the ESA indicates the station will enter Earth's atmosphere between March 30 and April 3, at which time most of the station will burn up. However, the station is large enough—it weighed 8.5 tons when fully fueled but has since used much of that propellant—that some pieces will very likely reach the planet's surface.
Beyond the fact that the station will reach a final impact point somewhere between 42.8 degrees north and 42.8 degrees south in latitude and probably near the northern or southern extremity of those boundaries due to Tiangong-1's orbital inclination, it is not possible to say where on Earth the debris will land. However, the likelihood of it affecting humans is quite low. Scientists estimate the "personal probability of being hit by a piece of debris from the Tiangong-1" is about 10 million times smaller than the annual chance of being hit by lightning.
It also hopes to sell 1 million electrified vehicles per year in that same timeframe.
On Friday morning, the US Senate passed a $1.3 trillion spending bill that could avert yet another government shutdown. Although the bill covers the breadth of US government activities, one interesting outcome of budget negotiations is that the spending bill reflects none of President Trump's most drastic proposed cuts to Department of Energy (DOE) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) renewable energy and early-stage energy programs.
In fact, the omnibus spending bill, which would secure funding out to September 2018, even increased the budgets of some renewable energy programs.
Still, it's unclear if the bill will escape a veto from Trump. Politico reported on Thursday that the president was in favor of the bill, but on Friday he tweeted that he might veto it due to the fact that the bill did not include funding for a border wall.
