However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. Where there's life, there's hope.

“And we can’t count happiness. And we can’t count the weather. So these are uncountable nouns,” I feel my confidence grow as I find myself being convinced by my own arguments.
Uncountable nouns, noncount nouns, or uncount nouns? | ETp
Is "being" required to form a passive construction or does it have any other function or meaning in the context?

Thanks . Can we say, 1/2 go-ahead?

I am confused about the use of definite article before the noun-go-ahead. The online dictionaries clearly uses "the" before the noun-go-ahead in all the example sentences.
My made-up sentence:
Did you get the go-ahead for something?
Did you get a go-ahead for something?
How do we know if a given noun is uncount or count?

Revalidation is a significant step-change for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians and I am delighted that the Council has given the go-ahead to this important process. We believe that the introduction of revalidation will further assure users of pharmacy services that pharmacy professionals will provide them with safe and effective care throughout their careers." Nigel Clarke Chair General Pharmaceutical Council December 2017

Please explain the use definite article before "go-ahead" and "Cpumcil".

Both teams have realised that the onus is too much on the respective duos, and they would need their remaining bowlers to shoulder greater responsibility in order to put up better performances and seizing the critical moments

Please explain the use of "would" in "would need..." as it has multiple meanings and rules.

If we replace it with "will", would it be still grammatical without changing the meaning?
