  Count - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Military counts in the Late Empire and the Germanic successor kingdoms were often appointed by a dux and later by a king.
From the start the count was in military charge, not of a roving warband, but settled in a locality, a countship, his main rival for power being the bishop, whose diocese was often coterminous.
In many Germanic and Frankish kingdoms in the early Middle Ages, the count might also be a count palatine, whose authority derived directly from the royal household, the "palace" in its original sense of the seat of power and administration.

 Count Basie   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Count Basie, who was born on August 21, 1904, in Red Band, New Jersey, began his music career by playing piano with his mother.
At this point they became known as Count Basie's Orchestra and also one of the leading bands of the "swing era." Basie developed an "elliptical' style of melodic leads and cues which allowed him to control the band from his keyboard while also blending in with his rhythm section.
Much of the success of the rhythm section was due to both "Papa" Joe Jones, one of Basie's contemporaries and pioneer of the constant high-hat cymbal style, as well as the fact they practiced independently of the band on many occasions to exact the buoyant swing heard in the music.

Count(*) uses dba_tab_columns to identify the execution plan.
count(*) is not the same as count(1) count(*) is the correct way to write it and count(1) is OPTIMIZED TO BE count(*) internally -- since a) count the rows where 1 is not null is less efficient than b) count the rows count(*) uses dba_tab_columns....
select count(*) from t; should use a primary key index (or an index on any column that is not nullable) -- it won't even touch the table in most cases.

The main difference between count and noncount nouns is whether you can count the things they refer to or not.
Normally the noncount meaning is abstract and general and the count meaning concrete and specific.
These exceptions require that the rule for pluralizing be revised: count nouns and nouns used in a count sense pluralize; noncount nouns and nouns used in a noncount sense do not.

 Christmas Bird Count
The field season of the 107th annual Christmas Bird Count season ended on January 5th; tens of thousands of volunteer birders both braved stormy conditions in the west, and counted in absurdly mild conditions in the east on their respective count days.
Over the next few weeks we will see how the determined efforts of CBC participants--and the weather-- determined what birds were found, and in what numbers, from the high arctic to southern South America.
Meanwhile, the 106th Christmas Bird Count summary issue of American Birds is completed and was sent out in October, with feature articles highlighting peoples’ experiences on the CBC over the years.

 SQL: COUNT Function
For example, you could use the COUNT function to return the name of the department and the number of employees (in the associated department) that make over $25,000 / year.
Since the COUNT function will return the same results regardless of what field(s) you include as the COUNT function parameters (ie: within the brackets), you can change the syntax of the COUNT function to COUNT(1) to get better performance as the database engine will not have to fetch back the data fields.
Now, the COUNT function does not need to retrieve all fields from the employees table as it had to when you used the COUNT(*) syntax.
