Square Mile
The square mile (abbreviated as sq mi and sometimes as mi²)[1] is an imperial and US unit of measure for an area equal to the area of a square with a side length of one statute mile.[2] It should not be confused with miles square, which refers to a square region with each side having the specified length. For instance, 20 miles square (20 × 20 miles) has an area equal to 400 square miles; a rectangle of 10 × 40 miles likewise has an area of 400 square miles, but it is not 20 miles square. One square mile is equal to:4,014,489,600 square inches[3] 27,878,400 square feet[3] 3,097,600 square yards[3] 640 acres[1] 2560 roods[4]A square mile is equivalent to the following metric measures:25,899,881,103.36 square centimetres 2,589,988.110336 square metres 258.9988110336 hectares 2.589988110336 square kilometresWhen applied to a portion of the earth's surface, "square mile" is an informal synonym for section.

Romanies
The Romani (also spelled Romany /ˈroʊməni/, /ˈrɒ-/), or Roma, are a traditionally itinerant ethnic group, living mostly in Europe and the Americas and originating from the northern Indian subcontinent,[55][56][57] from the Rajasthan, Haryana, Punjab and Sindh regions of modern-day India and Pakistan.[56][57] A DNA study conducted by Indian and Estonian research facilities shows that the Roma/Romani/Gypsy and Sinti people originate from the so-called “Untouchable” Dalit community from India.[58] The Romani are widely known among English-speaking people by the exonym Gypsies (or Gipsies), which some people consider pejorative due to its connotations of illegality and irregularity.[59] They are a dispersed people, but their most concentrated populations are located in Europe, especially Central, Eastern and Southern Europe (including Turkey, Spain and Southern France)
