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?
