Abstract: H. Blumberg proved that, if is a real-valued function defined on the real line , then there is a dense subset of such that is continuous. J. C. Bradford and C. Goffman showed [**3**] that this theorem holds for a metric space if and only if is a Baire space. In the present paper, we show that Blumberg's theorem holds for a topological space having a -disjoint pseudo-base if and only if is a Baire space. Then we identify some classes of topological spaces which have -disjoint pseudo-bases. Also, we show that a certain class of locally compact, Hausdorff spaces satisfies Blumberg's theorem. Finally, we describe two Baire spaces for which Blumberg's theorem does not hold. One is completely regular, Hausdorff, cocompact, strongly -favorable, and pseudo-complete; the other is regular and hereditarily Lindelöf.
