Could we please turn off the blinking? It annoys me. And it distracts from the page content.

Ok, thanks. Sounds good to me.
Is the 7 days automated?
The blinking "Announcement" text isn't too bad, but the red background really doesn't go well with the rest of the site. It screams "Problem!" more than "Announcement".
Also, I think the announcement about the Advanced data structures should go in News rather than the Announcements. (I'm not sure which page to put this)
Yeah I agree. Also, I was the one who added the news item, and all I did is click the "adding news" link on the home page (right underneath the news), created the page and this is where it went… I don't really no why, and I couldn't figure out how to change it.
It looks like the links to add news and to add announcements are on the same page add-news, so you must have accidentally clicked "Add announcement" instead of "Add news".
 The new item about data structures is in news. I just looked at the tags for it and it had "_83portal _news_announcements", so I removed the "_announcements" and it's showing up as news now.
[another edit] My issue with the bright red header still stands though.
