30 minutes

As a continuation of the proverbial soda/pop controversy, and its rotary/traffic circle/roundabout, freeway/highway/parkway etc. offsprings, what do you call a 30 min long time interval, half an hour or a half hour? Similarly, if something happens at 2:45, do you call it a quarter to three, or a quarter till three, or something else? And, as usually, please indicate where are you from.
