Cass Elliot (born Ellen Naomi Cohen;September 19, 1941 – July 29, 1974), also known as Mama Cass, was an American singer and member of The Mamas & the Papas.. After the group broke up, she released 5 solo albums..At the height of her solo career in 1974, Elliot performed two weeks of sold-out concerts at the London Palladium.. She telephoned Michelle Phillips after the final concert on July 28, elated that she had received standing ovations each night.. She then retired for the evening, and died in her sleep at age 32.. Sources state her death was due to a heart attack.. Elliot died in a London flat, No. 12 at 9 Curzon Place, Shepherd Market, Mayfair, which was on loan from singer/songwriter Harry Nilsson..4 years later, The Who's drummer Keith Moon died in the same flat at the same age.. Elliot was buried in Mount Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles...

An oft-repeated urban legend claims that Elliot choked to death on a ham sandwich..The story, which spread soon after the discovery of her body, was based on speculation in the initial media coverage.. Although an autopsy had not yet been performed, police told reporters that a partially eaten sandwich found in her room might have been to blame.. Despite the post-mortem examination finding that Elliot had died of a heart attack and no food was found in her windpipe, the false story that she choked on a sandwich has persisted in the decades following her death.. In fact, Elliot had lost 80 pounds (36 kg) in the 8 months before her death by fasting 4 days a week..Elliot's recording of "Make Your Own Kind of Music" is featured prominently in several episodes of seasons 2 and 3 of Lost as well as season 8, episodes 2 and 9 of Dexter (the later one also uses the title as the episode's title).. Her recording of "It's Getting Better" was featured in a season 4 episode of Lost..1 Curzon Street is a modern office building overlooking Berkeley Square.. The 5th floor was home to AIG Financial Products, the division that "nearly destroyed" the US insurance company and which has been described by reporter Peter Koenig as the "epicenter" of the global financial crisis of 08..Also to the East was Wharncliffe House, rebuilt in 1750 and renamed for the Countess of Wharncliffe in the late 19th century.. It is
now part of the Saudi Arabian Embassy...



Died 1940 December 16 – Marie Eugène François Thomas Dubois (Eugène Dubois), Dutch paleoanthropologist and geologist who discovered Pithecanthropus erectus (later redesignated Homo erectus), or "Java Man" (b. 1858)..Agnes Ayres (April 4, 1898 – December 25, 1940) was an American actress who rose to fame during the silent film era.. She was known for her role as Lady Diana Mayo in The Sheik and The Son of the Sheik opposite Rudolph Valentino..Ayres lost her fortune and real estate holdings in the Crash of ’29.. That same year, she also appeared in her last major role in The Donovan Affair..After her retirement, Ayres became despondent and was eventually committed to a sanatorium.. She also lost custody of her daughter to Reachi...

As part of Operation Abigail Rachel, the "first deliberate terror raid" on Germany took place on 16 December, although with poor effect even though one hundred tonnes of explosives and 14,000 incendiaries were dropped on Mannheim..The British had been waiting for the opportunity to experiment with such a raid aimed at creating a maximum of destruction in a selected town since the summer 40, and the opportunity was given after the German raid on Coventry.. Internally it was declared to be a reprisal for Coventry and Southampton..Mannheim is unusual among German cities in that its streets and avenues are laid out in a grid pattern, leading to its nickname "die Quadratestadt" ("city of the squares")- Joe Louis KOs Al McCoy in 6 for heavyweight boxing title in Chicago\22 - Manchester is heavily bombed as the Luftwaffe air raids on Britain continue.. 363 are killed and 1,183 wounded; and Manchester Cathedral is badly damaged+Himarë is captured by the Greek army....
