You have to become "root" (you can do that using "sudo" command in OSX terminal window, it will ask for a password).

Then edit file /etc/hosts. Add line that reads:
127.0.0.1 www.youchoose.com
Make sure the name of the website matches what is in the url of whatever this widget is loaded from (I can't see it so I don't know the exact name)

Alternatively, download Firefox and a few extensions (AdBlock would do it). It is a much better browser than Safari (heck, anything is a better browser than Safari)
