    Good day.
    At BBC site I often see headers containing strange constructions:
    e. g.: "Ford to recall 465,000 vehicles to fix possible fuel leak" (link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-22763338)
    I find it similar with "Ford recalls ... etc".
    Why BBC and other newspapers use this constructions instead of ordinar Verb+s?
    Thanks!
