Act Like a Celeb and Rent an Island | Fox Business

Ever dream about vacationing like a celebrity on your very own private island? Do you picture yourself with toes in the sand, listening to the palm trees sway and gazing at a blue sea? Well, believe it or not, renting a private island can happen — and it’s not just for celebrities and millionaires.

Renting a Private Island

There are private islands available to rent in all shapes and sizes. Depending on your budget, islands can range from rustic and untouched-by-the-world to glamorous and all-inclusive. We’ve chosen five private islands to explore, ranging from family-style vacations to more private extravagance. All are readily available; it’s just up to what you desire.

The Rustic Rental

Where: Enedrik Island, Marshall Islands, Oceania.

Cost: From $499 per week May to October, $999 November to April.

How to get there: Fly to the Majuro airport, and then take a 75-minute boat ride to the island.

Size: 14 acres.

Guests: The cabin can accommodate up to eight people, and the island can be booked for one group at a time.

Amenities: Rustic, rustic, rustic! There is a cabin for use on the island, water for washing and a conventional flushing toilet — but otherwise, all supplies must be purchased and brought onto the island. This is truly a return to nature in its purest form. If that excites you, then imagine the peace, tranquility and adventure of being alone on your own island for an entire week. You can even bring your tent if you’d prefer to sleep under the stars.

Unique features offered: Inexpensive and offering complete privacy, Enedrik Island is a real adventure vacation. It includes a private lagoon for snorkeling and views for breathtaking sunsets. It’s a perfect fit for the outdoor-loving naturalist.

Perfect Pop Star Revealed As Digital Fake: Japan Group AKB48 Shocks Fans With Avatar | Showbiz News | Sky News

It has been revealed that a member of Japan‘s biggest girl band does not actually exist.

Aimi Eguchi

Fans of the group AKB48 were shocked to learn that the newest addition to the group, Aimi Eguchi, is in fact a computer-generated avatar.

She is a digital creation made up from features of six of the other girls.

Followers became suspicious after Eguchi was chosen to front a major Japanese ice-lolly campaign – an endorsement usually given to the more senior members of the group.

The group’s fans also questioned the perfect pop star‘s resemblance to some of the other girls.

Their concerns about whether the star really existed were confirmed this week when her management released a video showing her being created.

If you’ve ever wondered about the real names of classic film stars or just how many famous people died in a particular year, then this site has all this and more.

If you can ignore the rather annoying star patterns that follow your mouse around, you’ll find an enormous amount of information collected by the author, an ex-member of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and organiser of many celebrity charity events. There are autographs of over 250 stars such as Vincent Price, Charlton Heston, Jack Lemmon (complete with spelling mistake) and Jane Russell, as well as facts about Maurice J. Micklewhite, Margarita Cansino or the unforgettable Natasha Gurdin, otherwise known as Michael Caine, Rita Hayworth and Natalie Wood.

Despite the sound of it, the Celebrity Death Dates page could end up resolving a  few discussions of the type “So and so must be dead by now …” You’ll also find curious facts such as that two people who were outstanding in completely different fields, Dizzy Gillespie and Rudolph Nureyev, both died on the 6th of January 1993.

Strange Random Language Fact:

Many languages have 50,000 words or more, but individual speakers normally know and use only a fraction of the total vocabulary: in everyday conversation people use the same few hundred words.
