First aid is the provision of initial care for an illness or injury. It is usually performed by non-expert, but trained personnel to a sick or injured person until definitive medical treatment can be accessed. Certain self-limiting illnesses or minor injuries may not require further medical care past the first aid intervention. It generally consists of a series of simple and in some cases, potentially life-saving techniques that an individual can be trained to perform with minimal equipment.
While first aid can also be performed on all animals, the term generally refers to care of human patients.

Vocal group co-founded in 1920 by the singers Cuthbert Kelly and Steuart Wilson, which specialized in early English music. The English Singers made dozens of recordings of English madrigals between 1921 and 1955.
In 1917 the bass singer Cuthbert Kelly founded a quartet of singers following wartime concerts he had staged at the church of St Martin-in-the-Fields. In 1920 the group was augmented to six singers, the members being Flora Mann, Winifred Whelen, Lillian Berger, Steuart Wilson, Clive Carey and Cuthbert Kelly. The ensemble toured the United States in its inaugural year, then in 1922 visited Prague, and later toured in Berlin, Vienna, Holland and the U.S.A. For William Byrd's tercentenary in 1923 the group recorded five discs, singing one voice to a part. The early English music scholar, E.H. Fellowes, recalled the impact of the English Singers' recording of Byrd's Short Service Magnificat, made on 29 January 1923: "The record of Byrd’s ‘Short’ Magnificat was a revelation in its beauty when rightly performed; it exerted a widespread influence in church-music circles."
A bee sting is strictly a sting from a bee (honey bee, bumblebee, sweat bee, etc.). In the vernacular it can mean a sting of a bee, wasp, hornet, or yellow jacket. Some people may even call the bite of a horse-fly a bee sting. The stings of most of these species can be quite painful, and are therefore keenly avoided by many people.
Bee stings differ from insect bites, and the venom or toxin of stinging insects is quite different. Therefore, the body's reaction to a bee sting may differ significantly from one species to another.
