SIPA: “FROM PELLET TO PALLET” 360° EXPERTISE
SIPC is a private, non-profit, non-governmental corporation to which most registered brokers are required to belong. Assessments against members are deposited into a fund designed to protect customers (i.e., investors doing business with the broker or brokerage) in the event of the financial failure of a SIPA member. If SIPC determines that a member has failed or is in danger of failing and other conditions are met, SIPC may seek liquidation of the firm.
Before SIPA: Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI)
The majority of stockbrokers deal in interstate commerce and, in so doing, are required to be members of the Security Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) by the Securities Investor Protection Act (SIPA) of 1970, 15 USC §§ 78aaa et seq. Generally, these stockbrokers should not be filing bankruptcy. However, if a determination has been made a broker or brokerage firm's customers' investments do not need protection under SIPA, it may file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The discussion of SIPA cases in the subsection below explains procedures to be taken by Field Insolvency caseworkers.

It has also become a group game similar to volleyball only the foot is the one controlling the ball or the "sipa." This Pinoy Game is By Pinoys for Pinoys!

Instead of a ball, in the Philippines, they use a washer with some ribbons or scrap cloth or a ball of rubber bands. They kick this using one foot - either the inner foot or the outer foot. Women find it harder to kick the washer thus they created their own version with a ball of rubber bands. Aside from the foot, the arm can also be used to keep the sipa upfloat. It is a fast and fun game and it will test one's eye, foot and arm coordination as well as flexibility, agility and speed. When played individually, the person whose sipa stays upfloat longer wins the game.
