Marshall Plan Convention 1948 Featured November Print

Marshall Plan Convention 1948

US Secretary of State George C. Marshall (L, 1880-1959) is pictured during a reception at London US embassy on November 02, 1948 with (L to R) Mrs Churchill, wife of US Ambassador in Great Britain Mrs Lewis Douglas, Mrs James Douglas, US Ambassador in Great Britain Lewis Douglas, Miss Sharman Douglas, James Douglas, Mrs George Marshall and former British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill.
After the conference in Moscow with British, French, and Soviet counterparts in March-April 1947, US Secretary of State George C. Marshall had observed the growing economic collapse of Europe and the obvious intent of Soviet Russia to benefit from that collapse. He had returned to Washington thinking that the best way to avoid this was to prevent Europe's economic, social, and political deterioration by creating a European program with massive assistance from the United States. One year later, in April 1948, President Truman, a Democratic president, signed the Foreign Assistance Act, passed by a Republican controlled Congress, to establish what became known as the Marshall Plan. / AFP PHOTO / RENE HELIER

Brazil-Surf-School

Young surfer Rickson Falcao, 10, waits for a wave at Saquarema's beach in Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil, on November 29, 2017.
Despite its vast Atlantic coastline, Brazil has few areas with world class surf. Until recently, it also had too small a middle class to grow a sport that had few roots. One main hotspot has always been near Sao Paulo, the other is Saquarema, a sleepy seaside city famous for a beautiful church on a rocky promontory, dividing two long beaches -- each lashed by consistently good waves. At the core of that local culture is Luiz Augusto de Matos, a burly retired firefighter who opened the Saquarema Surf School in 1990 and dedicated himself to turning generations of skinny toddlers into wave wizards. Today he has 30 students. / AFP PHOTO / LEO CORREA / TO GO WITH AFP STORY by Sebastian Smith
