cools
v. 3rd pers. sing.
to lower the temperature

related to the word:

cool
adj.
Slang - very good, pleasing, etc; excellent

This slang definition seems to come from nonchalant in that, if you can do something without trying hard (ie, “nonchalantly”), then “you’re cool” or “it’s cool”. 

nonchalant < L non, not + chaloir, to care for < L calere, to be warm or ardent

…and cool obviously means not warm

Even more than nonchalant, cool takes on a meaning more like “sprezzatura” an Italian word originating from “The Book of the Courtier”, published in 1528 by Baldassare Castiglione, who defined “sprezzatura” as “a certain nonchalance, so as to conceal all art and make whatever one does or says appear to be without effort and almost without any thought about it.” It is the ability of the courtier to display “an easy facility in accomplishing difficult actions which hides the conscious effort that went into them.”

Cool indeed!!
POOLS.....................a place to cool off in the summertime.
