    The first Ice Cream Cup
    The first Ice Cream Cup

    The first ice cream cup was found in Egypt in a tomb in 2700BC.

    It was a kind of mould made from two silver cups, one of which contained snow or crushed ice, and the other ...

    Ice Cream: The Early Days
    • Ancient Rome had special wells to store ice and snow. The ruins of Pompeii left traces to make us think that some shops specialised in selling crushed ice sweetened with honey.
    • In China and Japan, ice was gathered to preserve food. During the Tang Dynasty, a drink was recorded, consisting of milk cooked with flour and camphor, ten placed in iron containers, and buried in snow.
    • Before the Incas conquered the Caranquis, large blocks of ice were brought down from the top of the volcano. A large cauldron was filled with ice, snow, and fruit juice (and sometimes milk), and mixed until the juices and ice froze together.
    Ice Cream Legends
    • One legend claims that the Medici family organised a competition for the most original culinary recipes. It was won by a chicken seller (a Ruggeri) who submitted a composition of water, sugar, and fruit. It is thought that Catherine de' Medici brought Ruggeri and his ice cream arts across the Alps.
    • Another half legend is about the architect Bernardo Buontalenti, who invented an iced dessert for Charles V of Spain in 1559, at a famous inaugural fest for the Belvedere Fort of Cosimo I de' Medici. His recipe is recorded as cold cream made of milk, honey, egg yolk, a sprinkle of wine, aromatised with bergamot, lemon, and orange.
    Three different sides of risk
    • The odds you will get hit.
    • The average consequences of getting hit.
    • The tail-end consequences of getting hit.

    The first two are...

    The tail-end consequences

    The tail-end consequences of an action or event (those with low-probability, high-impact) are all that matter.

    In investing, the average consequences of risk make up most of the daily news headlines. But the tail-end consequences of risk (for example, pandemics and depressions) are what make the pages of history books.


    A cold body uses more energy to keep itself warm than a warm body.

    When we are cold, we shiver — the muscles involuntary contract to generate warmth. The body may also activate "brown fat", a...

    Exercise and heat

    The processes of thermogenesis only kick in to keep you warm when you are truly cold. Exercising alone may generate enough heat that your body wouldn't burn any extra calories through shivering and brown fat.

    The best way to use the cold to burn more calories would be not to exercise while you're outdoors or to exercise in light enough clothes in subzero temperatures.

    Physical activity and energy burn

    Physical activity only makes up a small portion of your total energy burn. Percentages of calories you burn off in a day:

    • 60%- 80% account for energy used for basic functioning when the body is at rest.
    • 10% of energy is used to break down food.
    • 10% - 30% of energy is used during physical activity, of which exercise is only a subset.
    • Thermogenesis accounts for less than 10% of your total energy expenditure.
