Plankeye was a Christian alternative rock band and one of Tooth & Nail Records' greatest successes during the 1990s and early 2000s. Plankeye's style could be defined as melodic post-grunge combined with indie and alternative elements, their first few albums incorporated a fair amount of punk rock elements, but this aspect faded when original singer Scott Silletta left the band. In 1994, Plankeye released Spill, their first album, able to garner enough sales to catch the interest of Tooth and Nail Records. Spill was re-released on Tooth and Nail, as Plankeye went into the studio again to record a less aggressive album, The Spark. In 1996, Plankeye released Commonwealth, which introduced a more mature sound. Over the course of the next year, the group toured opening for the Newsboys. In November 1997, the group released The One & Only. To promote this album, Plankeye headlined "The One & Only Tour", featuring opening act, the Insyderz. One year lead singer Scott Silletta and drummer Adam Ferry left Plankeye.
Adam Ferry left to become a youth pastor and Scott Silletta left to form the short-lived pop-punk band Fanmail. Silletta formed a record label called "Vanishing Point Records" with a lineup including his new band "The Franchise", he created his own recording studio called Orange Crush Studio located in Orange, California. In 1999, Balmer and Garcia released Relocation on BEC Recordings; this album featured Plankeye's heartfelt single, "Goodbye". Some wondered if this song was subtly referencing Scott and Adam's departure from the band, something which Eric and Luis refuted. In 2001, Plankeye's song, "When It Comes", was chosen by MP3.com to be included on their radio show'The Download'. Plankeye beat out 12,000 or so other Alternative bands on MP3.com to get on the show. In spring of 2001, Kevin Poush and Louie Ruiz joined Plankeye to record Plankeye's most experimental album to date, Strange Exchange. In 2002, Poush and Ruiz left the band, Balmer and Garcia recorded Wings to Fly, a greatest-of compilation which had 6 new songs including a re-recording of "Bicycle", from Commonwealth.

Solitude/Solitaire is the second solo album by former Chicago bassist and vocalist Peter Cetera, his first album after leaving the band in 1985. It was released in June 1986; the album includes the hits "Glory of Love" and "The Next Time I Fall". Solitude/Solitaire was produced by Michael Omartian, who co-produced Cetera's 2001 album, Another Perfect World. Cetera co-wrote eight of the nine songs on the album, "The Next Time I Fall" being the exception; because Cetera had been a prominent songwriter for Chicago, many of the songs on Solitude/Solitaire were rumored to have been slated for Chicago 18 "Big Mistake" and "Daddy's Girl". While "Big Mistake" was due to be the first single from the album, "Glory of Love", co-written by Cetera, David Foster, Diane Nini, was released instead; that song, from the film The Karate Kid Part II, topped the Billboard Hot 100 and Adult Contemporary charts, helped Solitude/Solitaire to go platinum. The follow-up single, "The Next Time I Fall", was a major success and topped the charts.
Singles released from the album included "Big Mistake" and "Only Love Knows Why". The song, "Daddy's Girl," is part of the soundtrack for the 1987 American comedy film, Three Men and a Baby; the album was Cetera's greatest solo success. It was certified platinum by the RIAA, selling over one million copies in the U. S. Solitude/Solitaire marked a high point in Cetera's career, where he achieved success for the first time on his own, it sold more copies than Chicago 18, Chicago's first album without Cetera, which peaked at No. 35.

Henricosborniidae is a family of extinct notoungulate mammals known from the Late Paleocene to Early Miocene of Argentina and Brazil. The name honors U. S. paleontologist Henry Fairfield Osborn. Henricosborniidae is a group of primitive notoungulates assigned to the suborder Notioprogonia together with Notostylopidae, not because these two families share any derived features, but because they do not belong to any other clade; the henricosborniids are only known from the late Paleocene and early Eocene, making them older and more primitive than the notostylopids. The henricosborniid dentition is the most generalized and primitive of all notoungulates, they are believed to be near the source of all notoungulates, they have low teeth crowns and the dental formula 184.108.40.206.1.4.3. George Gaylord Simpson noted that many of the mammals that Ameghino had, Simpson himself did, describe from the Río Chico Formation, on the Atlantic coast of Patagonia, are difficult to distinguish from each other, both on genus and family levels.
These mammalian groups, including the henricosborniids, are only known from one or a few isolated teeth found only at a single location. Each one of these teeth most represents a separate species but these species can not be properly described unless some comparable material is found. McKenna & Bell 1997 synonymized many of the species named by others. Among other things, McKenna & Bell included Postpithecus in Othneilmarshia. Simpsonotus, with two species found in the Mealla Formation in the Jujuy Province in northwestern Argentina, are the most complete henricosborniids found. Based on features in their auditory region, they might be the most primitive notoungulates discovered. On the other hand, if these primitive features are shared by the other members of the family, Vucetich & Fernández 1978 argued that the family should be recognized as a distinct suborder
