  1. It is my opinion that the ‘editorial’ is split up into two EST paragraphs. The first would encompass the first three physical paragraphs and the next two would comprise the second. In the first EST or conceptual paragraph we can see the main idea being presented is related to people being made more aware of the need for everyone to have some knowledge about science, while the second EST paragraph goes on to talk about what has been done up to now to address this issue. It is also worth mentioning that there is a final sentence, which although cannot be considered a paragraph, it certainly gives across an impacting message.
    In the ‘research article’, while we can see that there are four physical paragraphs, I would state that the report is in effect made up of 2 EST paragraphs. The ‘introduction’ and ‘methods’ would make up the first as they give the foundation of what was done in the experiment and the ‘results’ and ‘discussion’ sections outline what has been found.
    In the ‘report’ firstly there are 13 physical paragraphs and I believe that these can be split up into 4 EST paragraphs. Paragraphs 1 to 3, in which the language is much more formal and impersonal, give an introduction that explains the ideas to be developed or lays the foundation of what is to come. The second EST paragraph is comprised of the next 8 paragraphs, that are much more personal with the use of ‘we’ and ‘our’ and talks about ‘droplets’. The third EST paragraph is the twelfth physical paragraph, which talks about a specific experiment and the final physical paragraph makes up the final EST paragraph which gives further information related to the results of the investigation.

  2. The editorial Is composed of two main blocks or conceptual paragraphs plus a third block of conclusion. The first physical paragraph introduces the issue of the importance of communicating relevant information on climatic change to the public, and the role played by scientists in this process. It comprises two physical paragraphs.
    The second conceptual block handles the details: in the first of 2 physical paragraphs, it outlines the situation of the planet due to defective environmental policies.
    The second physical paragraph seeks to give hope by introducing the newly created Climatic Science Toolkit, and explains its advantages in the communication of the state of things to the public by scientist-citizens. This second physical paragraph is the core of the second conceptual block, since it highlights a device created to solve the lackings of information as a means to make people aware of the need for a change of mentality in environmental matters.
    The last physical paragraph is in a one:one correspondence with the conceptual paragraph and represents the conclusion of the text. It consists of the questions posed to the scientific community by F. Sherwood Rowland. The use of direct speech stresses the urgent tone of Rowland’s appeal on the responsibility of scientists in environmental matters. The editorial closes with a disturbing open question full of implications.
    Regarding the article, I agree roughly with the organisation proposed last year by Derry above.
    As for the report, the 12 physical paragraphs (I haven’t counted the abstract in), the first and second conform the introductory conceptual paragraph. Nr. 3 to Nr. 8 represent the second conceptual paragraph containing the strategies of development and experimental actions and descriptions, which include comparisons between cell types, behaviours etc. Numbers 9, 10 and 11 relate the findings. Finally, Nr. 12 is the 4th and last conceptual paragraph, and presents the device created by the researchers to produce 3D printed droplet networks and suggest the possibility of integrating printed networks with living organisms. I would call this last suggestion a subcore within conceptual parag. Nr. 4.

  3. The editorial is composed of three paragraphs. In the first conceptual paragraph we can check the main idea whera as the other the idea is developped, the last sentence could be understood as conclusion.
    Concerning the article we can find four physical paragraphs but 2 EST. Introduction and methods explain the experiment properly and results and discussion state what has been obtained.
    Regarding the report , taking into account, the 12 physical paragraphs, we can check an introduction (paragrapraph 1,2) later (from 3 to 8) a succint explanation containing how to develop actions and descriptions and to conclude (from nine to the end) findings are related. To conclude if we have to take into account the conceptual paragraph (number 12) we check that more information is added concerning to the conclusions of the investigation.
