24/7 Tempo Logo By Hristina Byrnes of 24/7 Tempo | Slide 1 of 43: Finding the right dog to bring into an apartment or other type of small space -- while still being a respectful neighbor -- can sometimes feel difficult. Apartment size, owner’s age, and lifestyle are all possible factors in determining what kind of dog suits a person’s situation. But picking the right dog for an apartment is not as limiting as many people may think. There are many breeds that most potential dog parents have not even considered before.  To compile a list of the best dogs for apartments and small spaces, 24/7 Tempo reviewed information on each of the 282 dog breeds currently listed by the American Kennel Club, the country’s purebred dog registry. We included the 42 breeds the AKC has classified as most apartment friendly. Dog breeds are listed in order of overall popularity, from highest to lowest. Nine breeds are still fairly new in the U.S. and did not have a popularity ranking as of March 2021. The best dogs for small spaces seem to be small -- between 10 and 15 inches and weighing about 20 pounds on average. Most of the dogs on the list belong to the toy or terrier groups. Both types of breed groups typically live between 12 and 15 years. Many of the best apartment dog breeds are laid back, loyal, and affectionate. According to the AKC, these breeds adapt well in small spaces. Deciding who your best four-legged friend to share an apartment with may require more than inquiring about the dog's activity needs. You may also want to consider how long a dog is expected to live --  these 26 dogs have the shortest lifespan.

Pizza is an American staple and there are pizzerias all over the country. However, some cities have more pizza places than others -- and some have fewer. 24/7 Tempo has compiled a list of the cities with the fewest pizza places, using data from Yelp API and the US Census Bureau. There are several possible reasons why a city might have relatively few pizza places, including poverty, urban blight, demographics and related food preferences, as well as more popular alternatives. Our list is headed by Detroit, Michigan and St. Louis, Missouri, both cities with a host of economic challenges. Detroit, in particular, isn’t just short of pizzerias -- it has long been associated with urban blight and migration to the suburbs, although it has been making a comeback in recent years. There are other rust-belt states whose cities have suffered from deindustrialization and decay on our list, including Ohio, with four entries. There are also several cities in California, Florida, and Texas on our list. These are states with large and growing Hispanic populations. Even if they don’t have so many pizzerias they probably have plenty of other great fast-food options, including arepas, burritos, and tacos. (If that’s your preference, this is the best Mexican restaurant in every state.) Honolulu, Hawaii also features on our list, possibly because of its large Asian population. Whatever the reason the Aloha State has some great dishes that it calls its own -- often incorporating local seafood. (These are the best seafood restaurants in America according to Yelp.)

Songs are the soundtrack of our lives. A song can evoke a romance that ended with wedding bells or a broken heart, or call to mind a high school summer or an entire era. If you heard The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” for what seemed like a million times last year, for instance -- and it was that ubiquitous -- you’ll probably forever associate it with the COVID-19 pandemic.  There are other songs that you might not have heard for a decade or more but whose lyrics you still remember. There are songs, both old and new, that become so-called earworms that get stuck in your head -- you keep hearing them and/or singing them to yourself whether you want to or not.     24/7 Tempo has compiled a list of the two most popular songs every year since 1970, based on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Some were hits so long ago that many of today’s listeners might never have heard them -- for instance, “Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Ole Oak Tree” or “Rhinestone Cowboy.” (For a musical history lesson, see the most popular song the year you were born.) Others became timeless classics. Even if you were born decades after the movie “Saturday Night Fever” opened, you’ll probably recognize the opening bars of “Stayin' Alive” right away. And it wasn’t even the most popular song in 1978 -- that honor was claimed by “Hot Child In The City.” (These are the 50 absolute best songs from the movies.) Some of the more recent songs on our list are still getting plenty of airplay. Adele’s “Rolling In the Deep,” the most popular song of 2011, still gets played today. So do more recent mega-hits like “Happy” by Pharrell Williams (2014) and “Uptown Funk!” by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars (2015). And of course there’s “Levitating” by Dua Lipa and DaBaby, the No. 1 hit of 2021 thus far -- another song that some of us might long associate with these difficult times.

If you like pizza -- and who doesn’t? -- then you’re going to like this. 24/7 Tempo has created a list of the cities with the most pizza places, using data from the Pizza Index 2021, Yelp API, and the US Census Bureau. Our list has some interesting features. There are three cities in Florida among the top 10 with the most pizza places: Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and Pompano Beach. That just might be because they’re also major tourist destinations, with lots of visitors from other cities where pizza is popular, and looking for casual dining options while enjoying the surf and sun. (Here are the best road trips to take before summer ends.) Pizza must be very popular in Colorado, too, which has three spots in the top 10 as well: Westminster, Centennial, and Longmont. In fact they’re not just in the same state, they’re all less than an hour’s drive from Denver. Nearby Boulder is also on the list, at No. 33. Maybe people work up an appetite with all the outdoor recreation options in the Rocky Mountains. (These are the best American cities for hiking.) Washington, D.C. ranks No. 9 and nearby Arlington and Alexandria in Virginia are also on the list. Maybe running the country is hungry work. There are also several college towns on the list, including Berkeley, California and Cambridge, Massachusetts, which is hardly a surprise. And while we’re on the subject, Surprise, Arizona ranks No. 21. To identify the cities with the most pizza places, 24/7 Tempo reviewed the number of pizza places per 100K from the Pizza Index 2021 for 259 cities around the country. Total population used to adjust for pizzerias per 100K population was from the US Census Bureau.
