7 SiteWide Activity Items Under Latest News on Home Page

I could likely use this
http://buddydev.com/buddypress/buddypress-sitewide-activity-widget-for-buddypress-1-2-and-above/

to display a less wide version of
http://www.taoofyouth.atsis.com/activity/

under Latest News Here:
http://www.taoofyouth.atsis.com/

and a wider version under the featured image/article slider here:
http://www.microsoftesque.com/

...and I started this topic either here or elsewhere before...

Anyway, what do you suggest I do to get 7 SiteWide Activity Items Under Latest News on Home Page here http://www.taoofyouth.atsis.com/

When the visitor clicks, they should be taken to the activity stream.
Also, should I use the BuddyDev Plugin? Does WPMU have one? Is manual code easier?

    The challenging part for me here is to place the stream and get it to stick into the area...

    I found just the right spot in home.php and added this, first without the divs

    <div class="stream">
    <?php if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar('Activity-Stream') ) : ?>
    <?php endif; ?></div>

    I also added this to functions.php


    register_sidebars( 1,
    array(
    'name' => 'Activity-Stream',
    'before_widget' => '<div id="stream23">',
    'after_widget' => '</div>',
    'before_title' => '<h4>',
    'after_title' => '</h4>'
    )
    );

    also, first with nothing before and after the widget, and then the way it is here.

    Placing the Activity Stream widget into that widget area pretty much hoses the site.

    Check it out: http://www.taoofyouth.atsis.com/ what fun!

    Maybe I could use a recent posts widget with summaries?
    Activity stream would be fun...

    Best,
