I have the same problem here. I also have the flickering ine the Chat/Who's Here room

Mark de LA says
looks good so far - depends if the stream gets moving

Seth says
So is this fixed to everyon's satisfaction?

Seth says
Ok the has heard you.  I have changed the refresh rate on News from once every 5 seconds to once every 20 seconds.  Please let me know if that works for you. 

The refresh rate on Chat is another issue.   We can increase it, but then live chatting would be very difficult.  I will increase it from once every second to once every 2 seconds.  Maybe we could get an active chat going with more than two people at a time and see how that feels.  Can anyone suggest a time, I am available most of the day and night.

This is also one that you could put a manual button on if you wanted to.
