We'd like our readers to start paying for Daily Maverick

More specifically, we'd like those who can afford to pay to start paying. What it comes down to is whether or not you value Daily Maverick. Think of us in terms of your daily cappuccino from your favourite coffee shop. It costs around R35. That’s R1,050 per month on frothy milk. Don’t get us wrong, we’re almost exclusively fuelled by coffee. BUT maybe R200 of that R1,050 could go to the journalism that’s fighting for the country?

We don’t dictate how much we’d like our readers to contribute. After all, how much you value our work is subjective (and frankly, every amount helps). At R200, you get it back in Uber Eats and ride vouchers every month, but that’s just a suggestion. A little less than a week’s worth of cappuccinos.

We can't survive on hope and our own determination. Our country is going to be considerably worse off if we don’t have a strong, sustainable news media. If you’re rejigging your budgets, and it comes to choosing between frothy milk and Daily Maverick, we hope you might reconsider that cappuccino.

We need your help. And we’re not ashamed to ask for it.

Our mission is to Defend Truth. Join Maverick Insider.

Airbus SE said its jetliner business was hit by a data breach that gave intruders access to some employees’ personal information.

There was no impact on aircraft production, the European planemaker said in a statement Wednesday. Airbus said it was in contact with regulators and data-protection authorities as it probes the origins of the intrusion.

“Investigations are ongoing to understand if any specific data was targeted, however we do know personal data was accessed,’’ the company said in the statement. “This is mostly professional contact and IT identification details of some Airbus employees in Europe.’’

Airbus said it was reinforcing existing cyber-security measures and taking action to mitigate the potential impact of the incident. Customer information wasn’t affected.

Boeing Co. was hit in March by what it called a “limited intrusion of malware that affected a small number of systems.’’ Production and deliveries weren’t affected. DM
