Abstract: H. Blumberg proved that, if $ f$ is a real-valued function defined on the real line $ R$, then there is a dense subset $ D$ of $ R$ such that $ f\vert D$ is continuous. J. C. Bradford and C. Goffman showed [3] that this theorem holds for a metric space $ X$ if and only if $ X$ is a Baire space. In the present paper, we show that Blumberg's theorem holds for a topological space $ X$ having a $ \sigma $-disjoint pseudo-base if and only if $ X$ is a Baire space. Then we identify some classes of topological spaces which have $ \sigma $-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 $ \alpha $-favorable, and pseudo-complete; the other is regular and hereditarily Lindelöf.
