Hey, Disney: Your virtual reality rides are making everyone sick. While I meet the occasional lucky soul who can ride in cars, planes, boats, and trains with no problem, the majority of people I know are affected by motion sickness to some degree. The CDC agrees, noting that "Given sufficient stimulus, all people with functional vestibular systems can develop motion sickness." When I visited Walt Disney World last week, I didn't think I'd have to worry.

Students around the country are enjoying spring break this month — but not Apple. The tech giant is holding a mysterious event in Chicago that has something to do with education. The event, which Apple has branded as a "field trip," will take place at Lane Tech College Prep High School in Chicago on March 27. "Join us to hear creative new ideas for teachers and students," the invite reads. We'll be honest — we have no idea what to expect at this event.
@trickycrayon@bullseyeweiner I think Disney is great! As evidenced by my high praise of Mission: Space. But I just don’t see why more of their VR rides couldn’t do the same as that ride. Thanks for the feedback!
@trickycrayon@bullseyeweiner Don’t want to get into a huge thing but I’ll clarify that my point wasn’t that all new rides are VR or that all VR rides are new. It’s that over time, more headliners are VR. Obviously people can skip these rides but that will damper the Disney exp more as more rides come out.
@MilesDean Never claimed they were making "everyone" sick! Tried to do research on how many people are affected by motion sickness on various rides, but could not find anything credible. Feel free to send anything over that you have!
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
