[1804.03732] Contest models highlight inherent inefficiencies of scientific funding competitions
"Scientific research funding is allocated largely through a system of soliciting and ranking competitive grant proposals. In these competitions, the proposals themselves are not the deliverables that the funder seeks, but instead are used by the funder to screen for the most promising research ideas. Consequently, some of the funding program's impact on science is squandered because applying researchers must spend time writing proposals instead of doing science. To what extent does the community's aggregate investment in proposal preparation negate the scientific impact of the funding program? Are there alternative mechanisms for awarding funds that advance science more efficiently? We use the economic theory of contests to analyze how efficiently grant-proposal competitions advance science, and compare them to recently proposed, partially randomized alternatives such as lotteries. We find that the effort researchers waste in writing proposals may be comparable to the total scientific value of the research that the funding supports, especially when only a few proposals can be funded. Moreover, when professional pressures motivate investigators to seek funding for reasons that extend beyond the value of the proposed science (e.g., promotion, prestige), the entire program can actually hamper scientific progress when the number of awards is small. We suggest that lost efficiency may be restored either by partial lotteries for funding, or by funding researchers based on past scientific success instead of proposals for future work."

The Quirks of CSS Grid and Absolute Positioning
It’s quite possible to use CSS positioning on grid items, just as you would with most other elements. There are one or two quirks, however, so let’s take a quick look to make sure you avoid the pitfalls.

CSS Grid in IE, Part 2: CSS Grid and the New Autoprefixer
Today I’m going to be tackling the biggest misconception of all: that utilizing the IE implementation of CSS grid is extremely difficult. You can easily use CSS grid in IE right now without having to give it any sort of crappy fallback layout. It really isn't that hard.

CSS Grid in IE, Part 3: Faking an Auto-Placement Grid with Gaps
Today, I’m going step away from CSS grid for a moment to show you a flexbox technique that replicates basic CSS grid auto-placement functionality. This CSS grid replica will even look like a grid-gap has been applied to it. I need to be super clear though: this is not about how to make actual CSS grid auto-placement work in IE.
